Gary Shaw on Scott Coker and Kimbo Slice potentially going to Bellator

Lot’s of news and rumors these last 24 hours in the MMA world. Just when you think a quiet week with no events gracing our airwaves will give us a chance to not be in a vortex of MMA, some big news breaks, and a rumor makes that big news even more interesting. If you […]

Rory MacDonald dominates Tyron Woodley, is a title shot in store?

Rory MacDonald dominates Tyron Woodley, is a title shot in store?

This has been a trying PPV, trying indeed. We got the weird Ryan Jimmo finish by OSP, Andrei Arvloski returning gloriously to the UFC with a lackluster split-decision win over Brendan Schuab. There was the boring Feijao/Ryan Bader fight, now this. Thus far into the show, this drubbing of Tyron Woodley by Rory MacDonald with […]

Nick Diaz says Anderson Silva should fire his trainer & get a boxing coach

Nick Diaz says Anderson Silva should fire his trainer & get a boxing coach

This is it, isn’t it? The first sparks that will hopefully start a flame that will burn into Anderson Silva vs. Nick Diaz. In Nick Diaz’s quest to get Anderson Silva money, who would’ve ever thought that Nick Diaz would indeed have to face Anderson Silva? But I’m getting way too far ahead of myself […]

Chael Sonnen explains his failed drug test in great detail

Chael Sonnen explains his failed drug test in great detail

I don’t know, man. I’m really confused right now. On one hand, Chael is in a ‘gotcha’ moment, after talking tons of trash on Wanderlei Silvafor ‘running away’ from a drug test in which he couldn’t even read the paperwork, but then, he’s also just trying to make sure his body is healthy, right? Well, […]

Jens Pulver makes a young fan’s dream come true after heart surgery

Jens Pulver makes a young fan’s dream come true after heart surgery

Omar Garcia is a six-year-old who has survived heart surgery 6 times already in his short life. His one dream was to be an MMA fighter, but with his ailments, this dream would obviously have to be put on hold for the obvious reasons… Fighting to live rather than for a literal punching and kicking […]

Gegard Mousasi submits Mark Munoz in Germany

Gegard Mousasi submits Mark Munoz in Germany

Wow, just… Wow. I don’t think I’ve seen a performance that brilliant from top to bottom since Anderson Silva was in his prime. Gegard Mousasi has taken the UFC rankings from around the neck, and demanded that the (current) #11 ranked fighter be thrust into the top ten. The UFC Fight Night 41 main event started […]

Training day: UFC Fight Night Berlin – Munoz vs. Mousasi

Training day: UFC Fight Night Berlin – Munoz vs. Mousasi

It snuck up on us, this Munoz vs. Mousasi fight, but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t carry any weight. A win here for Mark Munoz, and he’s right back in the mix. If Mousasi wins over an always-capable Munoz, he’s in line and about one more win away from a middleweight title shot. With this […]

Wanderlei Silva out against Chael Sonnen. Vitor Belfort in at UFC 175

Wanderlei Silva out against Chael Sonnen. Vitor Belfort in at UFC 175

I guess the writing was always on the wall, wasn’t it? Chael called it, members of the media called it, and it always just seemed like this fight, the most hyped battle in recent memory, would never actually take place. And now it isn’t. I’m devastated. I just need some sort of closure on this […]

Matt Brown vs. Robbie Lawler to headline UFC on FOX 12 in July

Matt Brown vs. Robbie Lawler to headline UFC on FOX 12 in July

Ah, finally, we get some clarity on the welterweight division, and it comes right away too. Robbie Lawler and Matt Brown will be headlining UFC on FOX 12 in late July, which means Robbie will be fighting about 3 times in 4 months. People, that only solidifies his badassness. You have to think this is […]

Watch EA UFC: Ronda Rousey vs. Miesha Tate and check out the first look at the submission game

EA UFC will be out and in our hands in just over three weeks. After what seemed like a never-ending horrible drought of footage and information, the floodgates have thankfully been opened, and we are getting out eyes on some absolutely gorgeous videos. At times, I feel like the footage is a real broadcast. The […]

Anderson Silva not sure if he’ll finish out his 8-fight contract, but why should he fight at all?

Anderson Silva not sure if he’ll finish out his 8-fight contract, but why should he fight at all?

Why do you do these things, Anderson. You play with my heart like you did Stephan Bonnar and Forrest Griffin heads. Before fighting Weidman, you signed an 8-fight contract. Now, heading into your 40th year on this planet, and coming off a shattered leg via Weidman’s Knee Destruction™, now you’re not so sure about fulfilling […]

Wow, James Krause really destroyed Jamie Varner’s ankle with a kick, here’s the replay

Wow, James Krause really destroyed Jamie Varner’s ankle with a kick, here’s the replay

Last night we saw the debut of the Ankle Destruction™ technique, as popularized by James Krause, and while we weren’t completely sure what happened at first, it was officially a very real injury caused by Krause. Sadly, the uninformed Chael Sonnen had to go and talk about Varner on FOX Sports without even knowing that […]

TJ Dillashaw takes the bantamweight belt from Renan Barao in one of the biggest upsets ever

TJ Dillashaw takes the bantamweight belt from Renan Barao in one of the biggest upsets ever

Wow. Wow, wow, wow! Renan Barao was the 8-1 favorite going into this fight against the 28-year-old Team Alpha Male member, TJ Dillashaw, and there was just no way Dillashaw would even come close to Barao, right? Wrong. Absolutely wrong. All of the crap talk about Alpha Males being unable to capture gold has gone […]

Daniel Cormier puts Dan Henderson to sleep, calls out Jon Jones

Daniel Cormier puts Dan Henderson to sleep, calls out Jon Jones

Hendo looked like a middlweight fighting a heavyweight, and the fight very much played out exactly how it looked. Daniel Cormier is an intelligent human being. He knows the H-Bomb does not discriminate between weight classes, so he took Hendo down with a huge slam, then dominated him for 15 minutes. If you know Cormier […]

Robbie Lawler takes out Jake Ellenberger with a brutal knee

Robbie Lawler takes out Jake Ellenberger with a brutal knee

Okay, Robbie Lawler is on a different level the last few years. It’s undeniable now. You know I think he beat Hendricks, and now he’s making a good case for a rematch after demolishing Jake Ellenberger, a top 5 welterweight who didn’t want to give Robbie and his 18, (now 19) knockouts respect. I don’t […]

Jamie Varner injures foot/ankle, loses to James Krause, gets foot stepped on by doctor

Jamie Varner injures foot/ankle, loses to James Krause, gets foot stepped on by doctor

Poor Jamie Varner, his fight with James Krause was looking like a barnburner until his ankle suddenly gave out a minute or so into their fight to open UFC 173. Granted, Varner showed a lot of heart. He immediately took down Krause, and was able to be relatively effective, but his injury was clearly hurting […]

Ah, finally. Jon Jones has gone full heel

Ah, finally. Jon Jones has gone full heel

This is what I’ve always wanted. Jon Jones has gone full heel. This is what should’ve happened years ago. No more talk about his arrogance, or fake humble attitude. Just go full-Three Stooges and start poking everyone in the eye, Bones. It’s the way it should be, for the better of the sport, your career […]

Edmond Tarverdyan talks how he began working with Jake Ellenberger

Edmond Tarverdyan talks how he began working with Jake Ellenberger

Edmond Tarverdyan has his hands full with the Four Horsewomen;  Shayna, Ronda, Marina and Jessamyn, but that doesn’t mean he won’t take on a world-class fighter such as Jake Ellenberger. Think about it: Jake Ellenberger is a win over Robbie Lawler away from very likely getting a title shot, and then there can be two […]

Jake Ellenberger: “People have given Lawler too much respect; You can’t do that in MMA”

Jake Ellenberger: “People have given Lawler too much respect; You can’t do that in MMA”

The loss to Rory MacDonald must’ve stung Jake Ellenberger. He was on his way back to building a three-fight winning streak in the deadly UFC welterweight division, but a unanimous decision loss now puts him squarely back in the middle of the top ten. That all can change, however, when Ellenberger takes on Robbie Lawler, […]

Ah, a new UFC vlog: Embedded

Ah, a new UFC vlog: Embedded

I was sold on this new UFC vlog the moment we saw Dan Henderson sitting shirtless at his desk like some MMA version of Casting Couch. I’ve wanted more than the oddly named “UFC 1XX vlog” (when the title may not even pertain to the title of the show it’s named after) for years. They […]
