The Resurgence of Anthony Smith

2020 got off to a rough start for Anthony “Lionheart” Smith, and that’s putting it mildly. In April he was a victim of a home invasion that was something like a scene out of a movie. It resulted in the former light heavyweight title challenger having to dish out a serious beating on the intruder. […]

Pimblett’s Potential

Credit to Dillashaw

  You got to give it to T.J Dillashaw. After a two-year absence from the sport due to testing positive for some serious performance-enhancing drugs, he returned to competition clean as a whistle, and earned an impressive victory.

The Return of Miesha Tate

Retirements in MMA aren’t exactly ironclad, but when Meisha Tate announced she was hanging up the gloves back in 2016 to step into an executive role with ONE FC. It felt as though we’d seen Cupcake in the octagon for the last time.  But fast forward five years later, and we are right on the […]

That Ended Badly

  It’s unfortunate when a blockbuster main event fight ends bizarrely, but such was the case for UFC 264. No matter which way you fold it, the result of the trilogy fight between Conor McGregor and Dustin Poirier was just downright dreadful.

Matt Brown is Immortal

    How’s that for 40, bitch? The words from Matt Brown just moments after he knocked Dhiego Lima into oblivion at UFC Vegas 29 summed things up quite nicely. Brown has been fighting in the UFC since 2008 that spans 28 fights, including a spot on The Ultimate Fighter season 7 that earned his […]

UFC 263: Adesanya vs Vettori Fight Picks

UFC 263 is one stacked event. The return of Nate Diaz itself is enough to carry a pay-per-view in this day and age, and for this card, it isn’t even the co-main event. A gesture that speaks volumes of the respect the flyweights have earned with the UFC brass over the past couple of years. […]

Jairzinho Rozenstruik and the Destruction left behind
