UFC Fight Night Preview: Matt Brown vs. Erick Silva

When I was first becoming interested in MMA, I saw Chris Lytle submit Matt Brown with an impressive inverted triangle/straight armbar combination. From that, I got on the Lytle bandwagon and promptly forgot about Matt Brown. That was my fault. Brown eventually worked himself out of his funk and 18 months...

Jones vs Teixera Preview

The rise of Jon Jones has been of Cinderella quality. Starting by learning techniques from online videos to training with Greg Jackson at Jackson’s MMA, Jones has had a Hollywood career. The scariest part is that he still has room to grow. He’s 26 years old and already has made a case for best...

TUF China Finale Preview: Dong Hyun Kim vs. John Hathaway

John Hathaway’s biggest win was against Diego Sanchez at UFC 114. That was almost four years ago. With that, Sanchez upped his worth in the Welterweight division and got a fight against Mike Pyle. However, that fight didn’t work out in his favor as he lost a unanimous decision. He was out-wrestled and...

B.S. Predictions: UFC Fight Night 36

Thanks to Chris Weidman the UFC’s middleweight division is wide open for the first time in years.  That’s what makes UFC Fight Night 36 so interesting.  The final two bouts on Saturday night could very well determine the next man to challenge for the 185lb crown, when Lyoto Machida faces Gegard Mousasi...

Benson Henderson Finishes Last

With Aldo VS Pettis having being booked, Benson Henderson recently took to Twitter to voice his displeasure with the fight, calling it “horse manure.”  Henderson believes he deserves a shot at the 155 lb. title, and voices his opinion, while at the same time acting as Dana White’s squeaky, clean...

Anthony Johnson Comeback Adds Intrigue To UFC 172

The 2014 calendar for UFC has already become a very interesting one because of the rather sudden absence of not just Georges St. Pierre, but Anderson Silva, too. The sport, to an extent, is reeling and anticipating what is likely an inevitable (if hopefully temporary) drop-off in popularity without its two...

B.S. Predictions: UFC 169

It’s a rarity when the UFC has two title fights on the same card, but it is Super Bowl weekend, so Dana White is going big with UFC 169.  A Jose Aldo fight always carries the potential for excitement, combine that with Renan Barao vs. Urijah Faber and that potential becomes a guarantee.   B.S....

UFC Rankings Post UFC on FOX 10 as of 1/31/14

UFC on Fox 10 was not the strongest card on paper, but it turned out to be a fun night of free fights.  Fans were treated with a couple spectacular knockouts and a fun back and forth main event which left plenty of room for debate on the outcome.  Whether or not you agreed with the decision, it helped...

UFC Rankings: Post UFC Fight Night 35 as of 1/18/14

With a couple brutal kicks to the liver the UFC gained yet another title contender in the suddenly stacked middleweight division.  While Luke Rockhold looked very impressive this past weekend he will still need a couple more wins before he can truly stake a claim for a title shot.  Rockhold wasn’t the...

Benson Henderson: On the Hunt for Gold at UFC on FOX 10

I’ve never been a UFC champion.  But, I imagine that once you have the belt, losing it sucks, a lot.  Benson Henderson was the UFC lightweight champion for ? years.  He successfully defended his crown ? times, including wins over Nate Diaz and Gilbert Melendez.  ? months before Henderson lost his belt...
