Frank Shamrock feels bad for Ortiz & himself on UFC record keeping & why MMA will never pass in New York

  MMA was just passed once more yesterday in the New York senate. It is hard to get our hopes up as it seems year after year it gets passed on the senate floor but gets killed again in their Assembly. I’m not trying to speak ill of anything but let’s be honest – five […]

John Hackleman: “Jon Jones – Don’t post pics like a douchebag”

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 […]

Rich Franklin talks UFC return & juicing

Rich Franklin talks UFC return & juicing

Rich Franklin is well on his way to the UFC Hall of Fame, this much is known and this much is obvious, but I suggest possibly an even greater honor to bestow upon the former UFC middleweight champion – create a new weight division called ‘Franklinweight.’ You know what I’m saying here – create a […]

Brock Lesnar’s Return: WWE not UFC

By Will Gray “Don’t call it a comeback, I’ve been here for years.” Well by years I mean only a few and a comeback is a return from a self-imposed hiatus, like Bruce Wayne when he saw work wasn’t finished and went all Dark Knight Returns on ‘em. Point is: new year, new stories, new […]

By Alex Mattis By the time you read this, Chris Weidman and Anderson Silva will have fulfilled their destiny, Miesha Tate may or may not (but, most likely will) have her arm in a cast, and Josh Barnett will have probably spouted off a Dusty Rhodes-esque diatribe on the mic. UFC 168 is upon us, […]

Anderson Silva has surgery, months before he can walk again

I’m still having a hard time processing what we saw last night at UFC 168. On one hand, hats off to a game Chris Weidman, but I don’t really think checking a kick with a knee on purpose, and calling it “The Destructor” or something like a pro wrestling move. He ended a man’s career […]

UFC 168 culminates in a horrific injury to Anderson Silva (Graphic)

I don’t think it’s correct to say, “If this is the end, I wish Anderson well.” No, this is the end. Anderson Silva is done. He will be forty-years-old by the time he can likely even train again, and by then, let’s be honest, who really even wants to continue on after this horrific injury? […]
