Heavyweights: “Bigfoot” vs “Skyscraper” is a must ~ Flyweights: Fans Need to Quit Booing

“Bigfoot” vs “The Skyscraper” needs to happen Spectators were not only shocked by the win Antiono Silva got over former top heavyweight contender Travis Browne, but by the destructive tko he deliver in the first round.  A week ago, Stefan Struve defeated another top contender in Stipe Miocic, and finished him as well. Silva,who just finished Browne in the first round would be a perfect match-up for a guy who

Daniel Cormier: No Werdum, then I want Pat Barry

With the Nov. 3 Strikeforce headliner a little more than a month away, Cormier is publicly campaigning for an opponent. Hopefully we don’t get stuck with bringing Todd Duffee back. My big question is: where is Mark Hunt when you need him? Frank Mir stepped up to take on Cormier is the last heavyweight Strikeforce fight, but with Mir’s injury and with Matt Mitrione unwilling to take the fight, Strikeforce heavyweight

New VIDEO: WTH is Rory Madonald wearing!?

Rory Macdonald looks pretty odd in this interview with Arial Helwani after a UFC on FUEL TV event. I usually try to stay away from judgmental comments but this one is too good to not share with the cyber universe! His outfit doesn’t even seem “era appropriate!” Watch the video below to see what I’m talking about! VIDEO COURTESY OF FUELTV..

Fighters Shouldn’t Have to Earn Back #1 Contendership

The injury bug is always around and lately it seems to be equivalent in function to the UFC’s promotional process as fights seem to change daily due to injuries. The TRT and testosterone problems are another big factor in the world of mma as well. Between both of these factors, fighters seem to be having to reschedule fights more often. Fighters are not only losing fights they earned, but now it seems

MMA headlines should read: Anderson Silva vs. Michael Bisping

It’s time for Michael Bisping to get his shot at the title, regardless of his recent statements that have rubbed many the wrong way. Unless the UFC pulls Chris Weidman from his match with Tim Boetsch, pitting him against Bisping for a number one contendership one off, I say give Bisping the next shot at Anderson Silva’s belt. Picking up his thirteenth win in the UFC against another top opponent

UFC 152: Jones retains title, guess who may be next?

Jon Jones retained his title last night by submission in the fourth round. It was not without incident though as he found himself caught in a deep armbar from Vitor Belfort’s guard in the second.

The name of the game is to keep winning.” Stefan Struve is aptly nicknamed “The

Bisping Needs to be a Role Model Not a Bully

Michael Bisping is the biggest joke in the UFC and we all know I’ll let you know how I feel. First, Bisping is disrespecting Chris Weidman and Mark Munoz claiming Munoz is fat and Weidman is still a rookie who shouldn’t even be close to title contention. Now, we have him talking smack to a 125 pound fighter in Joseph Benavidez? I mean really? This is a sport and a
