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 […]

I don’t know, man. I’m really confused right now.

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 […]
