Fabricio Werdum feels he will get Travis Browne to the ground & will finish him

Fabricio Werdum feels he will get Travis Browne to the ground & will finish him

We’re coming up on 11-months since Fabricio Werdum was able to submit Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira after TUF: Brazil 2 played its course, and while at the time, we expected Fabricio Werdum to be fighting for a title by this time, and injury to Cain Velasquez has set circumstances in motion for Werdum to get back […]

Which knockout was sweeter – KJ Noons over Sam Stout or Poirier over Corassani?

Which knockout was sweeter – KJ Noons over Sam Stout or Poirier over Corassani?

  This TUF Nations finale has been pretty action-packed for an under the radar Wednesday evening card. Seriously, who even saw this coming, these ridiculously fun fights and knockouts one after another? I didn’t. I thought the card was this weekend, that’s how completely out of it I am. But you know, that’s not my […]

Nick Diaz on Pacquiao’s win, Johny Hendricks, Roy Jones Jr. & wanting his UFC contract sold

Nick Diaz on Pacquiao’s win, Johny Hendricks, Roy Jones Jr. & wanting his UFC contract sold

Nick Diaz is retired from MMA unless the UFC restructures his contract. That is the reality of the situation and we are slowly coming to accept it as the year anniversary of his fight against GSP has come and gone. But that doesn’t mean we have to be done watching him fight. Nick Diaz is […]

Marinar Shafir makes her pro debut and wins exactly how you would expect

Marina Shafir, the┬áSupernova From Moldova, has officially made her 145 pound pro debut, and she won exactly how you would expect her to… By first round armbar, duh.┬áChandra Engel fought hard and well, but it didn’t make a difference, Marina showed why she’s such a boss with absolute dominance and ferocity. It was quite the […]

The people of Las Vegas predict Pacquiao vs. Bradley 2

The people of Las Vegas predict Pacquiao vs. Bradley 2

As if the original Pacquiao/Bradley fight didn’t divide the masses enough… For as crazy as that split decision was, I have the sinking feeling that we are going to see something weird happen in this fight as well. Split-Decision again? I dunno. But I don’t think it will be as decisive a victory for either […]

Roy Nelson demolishes Big Nog with a devastating KO

Roy Nelson demolishes Big Nog with a devastating KO

Please stop fighting, Big Nog. I don’t want to keep watching you get hurt. It’s just not fun. If you ask me, the fight between Roy Nelson and Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira should’ve been stopped about 20 seconds before Roy finally shut off Nog’s lights and maybe pulled the curtain on his career. Why did the […]

Marina Shafir talks about stalking Cris Cyborg, will be ready for her in a year and a half

Marina Shafir talks about stalking Cris Cyborg, will be ready for her in a year and a half

I learned more in a few tips from Marina Shafir at Glendale FC than a year of Carlson Gracie Chicago under my white belt. I’m not sure if ‘wunderkind’ is the right word to describe Marina, but maybe ‘the next Ronda,’ is probably correct. Phrase for word. Yeah, that works. I’m sure that’s the last […]

Bruce Lee revealed as the EA UFC mystery fighter, reactions vary

Bruce Lee revealed as the EA UFC mystery fighter, reactions vary

First off, EA UFC looks friggin’ beautiful, I think we can all agree with that statement. The divisions come, however, when we talk about Bruce Lee as the ‘Father of MMA.’ A simple Google search can see live matches, not even sparring between mixed martial arts as far back as the 40′s. Look at Judo […]

Jake Shields has been released from the UFC

Jake Shields has been released from the UFC

Just over three years and 8 fights later, with a record of 4-3-1 (with the no contest being a win for Shields if he didn’t pop for an illegal substance), Shields is gone. Some say he was released, but to my knowledge he didn’t have any fights left on his contract. On the heels of […]

Tim Bradley feels Cub Swanson deserves to fight Jose Aldo

Tim Bradley feels Cub Swanson deserves to fight Jose Aldo

Here’s my take on the whole Cub Swanson getting a title shot issue: I believe in redemption, and he’s definitely become a better fighter over the last few years since the WEC closed, but how can you ever get over a 7-second double flying knee to the face that tears your skull open and ends […]

Manny Pacquiao “I proved with Brandon Rios I’m not old; Now I have to confirm it”

Manny Pacquiao “I proved with Brandon Rios I’m not old; Now I have to confirm it”

It feels like Manny’s ‘end’ has been talked about forever. But he’s a warrior, and like many warriors who only know in their own mind when the end is really nigh, he has some loose ends to tie up. He took down Brandon Rios in November in what turned out to become a personal feud, […]

Cris Cyborg hopes to make 135 by the end of summer

Cris Cyborg hopes to make 135 by the end of summer

Quentin Tarantino’s Grandpappy once said, “If you make declarative statements, you are apt to look foolish in retrospect.” I earnestly believe this is the path Cris Cyborg is heading down, as she is merely talking. Talk is talk – it gets you nowhere. If you claim that Ronda is running from you (she’s not), maybe […]

The drama between Chael Sonnen and Wanderlei Silva on TUF: Brazil 3 is ridiculous

The drama between Chael Sonnen and Wanderlei Silva on TUF: Brazil 3 is ridiculous

TUF: Brazil 3 is simultaneously the most interesting and most ridiculous TUF since TUF 10, when Rashad Evans and Rampage Jackson got in each other’s faces. But this is exactly what we’ve always wanted out of Chael and Wand, right? It is for me. This is years in the making, and it’s living up to […]

GSP tears ACL in training, promises 100% recovery, but will he return to MMA?

GSP tears ACL in training, promises 100% recovery, but will he return to MMA?

It’s almost like GSP’s retirement was meant to be at this point. With an ACL tear at his age, he’s likely to be out for at least a year, which could be what he needs to recharge his batteries so to speak, but it could also mean that he’s done for good. Maybe. In a […]

Get ready to barf – Johny Hendricks’ bicep surgery photos, before and after

Get ready to barf – Johny Hendricks’ bicep surgery photos, before and after

Johny Hendricks injured his bicep a few weeks out from UFC 171, then ended up taking a meat cleaver or something to it during the actual fight with Robbie Lawler, and what follows are the before and after photos. They look like some sort of sausage making photos or something. I don’t even know. I […]

Watch these slo-mo UFC 171 replays immediately

Watch these slo-mo UFC 171 replays immediately

UFC 171 was one of the best cards in recent memory, which is shocking considering the fact that nine of the fights on the card went to a decision. Typically, the rule is that a decision-filled card is likely to be fairly boring, but the energy in Texas seemed to pick up with every single […]

Who hit Chris Leben hardest during his career?

Who hit Chris Leben hardest during his career?

I’m going to go out on a limb here and say that Chris Leben was hit hardest by Brian Stann or Anderson Silva. I mean, both of those fights ended in mere seconds afterall, even when Leben has one hell of a chin. Then again, Mike Swick took out Leben early in his career, so […]

Chris Weidman out with a knee injury, requires minor surgery

Chris Weidman out with a knee injury, requires minor surgery

The knee destruction strikes again – Chris Weidman is out of his Memorial Day fight against Lyoto Machida after suffering a slight knee injury which will require surgery. There’s no news on whether this injury is a residual effect from shattering Anderson Silva’s leg last year, but we’re going to assume it is because that […]

Rampage Jackson still doesn’t give a F*** about the UFC Hall of Fame

Rampage Jackson still doesn’t give a F*** about the UFC Hall of Fame

The problem with the UFC Hall of Fame is its inconsistencies. Tank Abbott and Don Frye should be in the HoF alongside Mark Coleman. Jens Pulver and plenty others should be inducted, but politics are the name of the game. Stephan Bonnar is in the UFC HoF purely off of his guts in a single […]
