I am back everybody and I have returned a married man. Our wedding was wonderful and now it’s back to work. After being able to sit down and watch UFC 152, I of course have a lot of thoughts on the PPV. Belfort’s lack of killer instinct loss him the fight Jon Jones proved he is the best overall mma fighter in the UFC and has proved to me that

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.

UFC 152 Preview: Two championships on the line

Not much hype is welcoming this fight card in to its Saturday night debut at the Air Canada Center in Toronto, Canada.

UFC 152: Official Extended Preview

Maybe we can’t move past the UFC 151 cancelation until UFC 152 is behind us but regardless, Jones vs. Belfort is worth watching, albeit not a legitimate title fight. That’s not the sole reason fans should tune in though. The first flyweight championship bout ever will be headlined by Joseph Benavidez vs. Demetrious “Mighty Mouse” Johnson. Yet even before these two bouts, Michael “The Count” Bisping and Brian “The All

Finally we get to see a fight, it seems like it has been forever.  UFC 152 brings us two title fights, plus some good prelims on FX.
