Our newest podcast is up!
This weekend, the UFC makes their long-awaited maiden voyage to Russia, home of current lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov. The card is far from great; it is actually kind of bad. So bad in fact that the UFC is only putting it on Fight Pass, which severely limits the reach the card will get beyond those in attendance and extremely hardcore fans. So, with a card that is lacking in big fights, is this a sign of how much the UFC is willing to invest in Russia?
In this episode we discuss UFC 228, Tyron Woodley as the Welterweight GOAT, Valentina Shevchenko and the 125 lb title, some UFC 229 & 230 talk, and more!
Our picks are in for UFC 228!
After Gaethje proved me wrong and destroyed James Vick at UFC Lincoln, he needs a step up to see how high he can climb in the division after two stumbles. Kevin Lee may be his next opponent.
Our picks are in for UFC Lincoln!
This weekend, James Vick FINALLY has the chance to prove himself against an elite guy at 155 after a rather disappointing result against Beneil Dariush in 2016. "The Texecutioner" (an all-time good MMA name) is facing Justin Gaethje, and although he's on a two fight skid currently, he's a guy that will be around the top as long as he is in the organization.
Hear me out, kids, because this isn’t a bad situation (almost) no matter how it plays out. And I am not by any means a Greg Hardy advocate, but this could be smart business, and the UFC is in the business of making money..
If you know nothing else about me as a person, I am a HUGE advocate of Mr. McGregor. He is among my idols, he changed the game, and has called his shots up until now, including this monumental bout.
Our newest podcast is up! In this episode we discuss that we forgot UFC 227, Henry Cejudo, TJ Dillashaw, Mighty Mouse, Conor vs Khabib, Conor vs GSP (including a lot of yelling) , Tony Ferguson, Nate Diaz vs Dustin Poirier, Stipe Miocic, Darren Till, the stinky strategy and Barstool Sports' Rough N' Rowdy 4.
Another UFC PPV is in the books, and history was made at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California. Did the streak of good UFC PPVs continue with the 227th edition? I've gone through and rated all of the biggest happenings from the weekend's card on a 0-5 star system.
Our picks are in for UFC 227!
The UFC heads back to the Sunshine State and the Staples Center in LA, where a long-awaited rematch at 135 is set to take place between TJ Dillashaw and Cody Garbrandt. TJ Dillashaw is champion following the KO finish of Cody in the first meeting last year. After being nearly finished in the second, he came roaring back and scored the knockout, leading to one of the greatest photos in MMA history (see below). It was such a great fight the first time around, and these two are determined to have the belt around their waist when they leave the arena Saturday. Along with just the belt, there is BAD BLOOD between these two (there will be more on that next week as a post-fight thought), and it looks to boil over into the octagon this weekend.
In this episode we discuss that we forgot UFC Calgary, what's next for Alvarez, Poirier, Aldo and Joanna, Max Holloway, Dominick Cruz, Colby Covington vs Kamaru Usman, we argue about Conor vs Nate 3 and we make our picks for UFC 227.
Our picks are in for UFC Calgary!
This weekend, the UFC is back in Canada, this time in Calgary and on big boy FOX. Something that isn’t being heavily discussed is the fact that Eddie Alvarez is on the last fight of his contract. He previously rejected a contract this year, saying the terms simply weren’t good enough for “The Underground King.” So this Saturday’s outcome is HUUUUGE for Alvarez, and more specifically, his pocket book.
In this episode we discuss Brendan Schaub vs Dana White, Daniel Cormier, Yoel Romero, UFC vs WWE, Nick Diaz, Cyborg, Conor McGregor, Iaquinta vs Pettis, the UFC pound for pound rankings and why the rankings system stinks.
Check out our picks for UFC Boise!
UFC 226 is now old news. It’s done. Due to the falling out of the 145 title fight, the main and co-main were Heavyweight clashes, one for the title and the other a likely #1 contender fight. Then you had one of the most boring fights ever, a double champ, and Brock Lesnar. With all of this shaking up, it’s appropriate to see where the division stands now, at least for the immediate future.
In this episode we discuss UFC Boise, UFC 226, DC vs Brock, Jon Jones, Anthony Pettis, Paulo Costa/Uriah Hall, Israel Adesanya.
UFC 226 was full of great moments, but how do we rate it all?
This is a question that has been circulating some (at least our) MMA circles recently. It just does not seem there is a "guy" in the UFC right now, so who is it? Without Conor being active, who is the face of the organization?
