But even though he […]

UFC on ABC 2: Vettori vs Holland Fight Picks

  The second iteration of UFC on ABC is this Saturday, and as we’ve seen all too often in the Covid era, the original headlining fight required a late notice replacement. When Darren Till was forced to pull out due to injury, it was Kevin Holland who volunteered to step up on less than two […]

The Weekly MMA Rundown

  After a much needed break in the schedule, we are now entering the second quarter of 2021 with a new UFC Heavyweight Champion and a whole lot to look forward too. Despite there being no UFC events this week, there was still much to talk about. Whether it be the fall out from UFC […]

Ngannou’s breakthrough

  UFC 260 may have appeared thin on paper, but there was nothing lackluster about what it delivered. The top three fights on the main card produced downright chaotic finishes, the exact type of entertainment we are all here to see. Perhaps none more chaotic than the main event which saw a rematch of a […]

UFC Vegas 22: Brunson vs Holland Fight Picks

  The UFC Vegas 22 main event between Derek Brunson and Kevin Holland is bound to end dramatically. When you look at the styles of these two competitors, factor in the stages they are in their respective careers, and look at how often both of their fights end in the first round. It’s hard to […]

Leon Edwards: A series of unfortunate events

  Nothing seems to go right for Leon Edwards. After the very high-profile matchup with Khamzat Chimaev fell apart three times, Belal Muhammad stepped up on short notice to make sure that Edwards didn’t have to get served with another dose of disappointment for the fourth time in a row. After all of this time […]

UFC 259: Adesanya vs Blachowicz Fight Picks

  It’s somewhat premature for Adesanya to be jumping weight classes to compete for the light heavyweight title. Not because he isn’t ready for a fighter like Blachowicz, but because his career would be best served staying at middleweight and defending the crown. Anderson Silva and GSP didn’t become the superstars they were from jumping […]

UFC Vegas 20: Gane vs Rozenstruik Recap

UFC 258: Usman vs. Burns Fight Picks

  It was a fight that was twice booked and subsequently canceled , but the third time’s a charm. Now just days away from UFC 258, Kamaru Usman is set to defend the welterweight title against former training partner Gilbert Burns. Kamaru Usman (-290) vs Gilbert Burns (+225) It’s always interesting when former training partners […]

UFC Fight Night 184: Overeem vs Volkov Fight Picks

  When two elite heavyweights clash, it always makes for an entertaining affair. With Overeem hinting at the fact that this is quite possibly his last run at a UFC Heavyweight title, you can expect him to come out guns blazing on Saturday, which likely means an empathic finish to this fight. Whether he is […]

The Weekly MMA Rundown

  The co-main and main event of UFC 257 were as entertaining as anyone could have hoped for. Michael Chandler made his presence in the promotion known with a knockout victory of Dan Hooker that may have been the best debut in UFC history. Everything aligned for the former Bellator champ, having the form of […]
