UFC Fight Night | Hermansson vs Vettori

  Jack Hermansson and Marvin Vettori’s paths will cross this weekend, and if the winner of his contest can do so impressively, the next fight they find themselves in will have them on the fringe of the title contention. conversations  Jack Hermansson (+116) vs Marvin Vettori (-142) Hermansson is a nightmare for any middleweight on […]

UFC Fight Night | Blaydes vs. Lewis Fight Picks

  The consensus is that Francis Ngannou should be the next in line to challenge the champion Stipe Miocic. But aside from Ngannou, it’s both Curtis Blaydes and Derrick Lewis who occupy the top of the heavyweight rankings. If there is one thing fans of this sport know, is that nothing is written in stone. […]

UFC 255 | Figueiredo vs Perez Fight Picks

  While it’s disappointing that Cody Garbrant had to pull out of the flyweight title fight against Deiveson Figueiredo, it’s always nice to see a lesser-known fighter gifted with an opportunity of a lifetime. The lucky man this time around is Alex Perez, though it’s hard to call anyone getting locked into a cage with […]

UFC Fight Night | Felder vs. Dos Anjos Fight Picks

  In a last-minute twist to the plot , Islam Makhachev pulled out of the Fight Night headliner against Rafael Dos Anjos, and a very unexpected replacement fighter has emerged.

UFC Fight Night | Moraes vs. Sandhagen Fight Picks

The Future Of Carlos Condit

  Carlos Condit has been around this game forever, it’s hard to believe he is just 36 years old. There are fighters out there who haven’t hit their stride until this age. Condit has endured many hard battles over the years and has most certainly left more than a few pieces of himself inside the […]

McGregor is BACK!

  Is Conor really back? Conor has been in the news a lot lately, and not all for great reasons. Weirdly the indecent exposure wasn’t a shocker to me but the Diego Sanchez call out was. It seems like Dana and Conor are not on the same page lately. Recently Conor posted (what you could […]

The Uncertain Return of Nick Diaz

  I love and appreciate Nick Diaz as much as anyone, I think he might be the most admirable figure our sport has ever seen. Diaz is as authentic as it gets and was really ahead of his time in a lot of ways when you look back on his career. At a time in […]

Light Heavyweight Without Jon Jones

  When I first heard that Jon Jones was vacating the Light Heavyweight title, I thought what most thought. He doesn’t want anything to do with having to fight Dominic Reyes again, or perhaps even Thiago Santos for that matter. Which there is no shame in, if Jones never fought another day in his life, […]

The Answer is Bantamweight

The patent Frankie Edgar entrance to Biggie Smalls “Kick in the door” just isn’t the same without the fans. It’s still very cool, but from the audience’s perspective, it doesn’t have the same effect when taking place in the UFC Apex center in front of a handful of people. But it makes no difference to […]

Here’s To Hoping

  By all accounts, the trilogy of Daniel Cormier and Stipe Miocic delivered. The post mortem is primarily about the eye poke Miocic landed and the effect it may or may not have had on the fight. I think it had an impact on the fight, the same way I think eye pokes had an […]
