Zahabi wants GSP vs Mayweather

may GSP

Just when we thought the Floyd “Money” Mayweather and MMA rumors were dead, Firas Zahabi decides to stir up the pot once more, this time involving his star pupil, Georges “Rush” St-Pierre. During a sit-down interview with Joe Rogan this week, Tristar Gym’s head coach Firas Zahabi once again proposed a boxing match up between Floyd Mayweather and Georges St-Pierre. The first time Zahabi brought up the idea, it didn’t receive much traction. So it only made sense for the MMA guru to bring it up again, this time while…

Dana White involved in Pro wrestling match

dana white WWE

Move over Vince McMahon, UFC president Dana White has officially made his pro wrestling debut in Memphis alongside longtime WWE ring announcer, Jerry “The King” Lawler. Dana White hasn’t minced words when discussing the legitimacy of the WWE in the past, but has acknowledged the promotional prowess of Vince McMahon on numerous occasions. Now it looks like uncle Dana is starting to come around on the idea of taking part in the predetermined phenomenon. For some reason footage of the match Mr. White was involved in included more action against…

UFC’s Darren Till: Public Enemy No. 1

Darren Till is coming off his biggest win in his young UFC career over Stephen “Wonderboy” Thompson, but somehow he’s managed to take two steps back in the process. UFC Liverpool had the potential of being Darren Till’s coming out party, but instead it was mired in mishaps, miscalculations and it failed to meet expectations. Till was the hometown kid who missed weight and while he offered no excuses, the consensus was that the “Gorilla” had gotten what was coming to him. Till was fed one too many bananas and…

Colby Covington will KO Whittaker if Romero can’t

Colby Covington is set to do battle against Rafael dos Anjos at UFC 225, but the interim UFC welterweight title isn’t the only one he’s eyeing. Just when you thought Colby Covington was done making enemies, he decided to do another interview. When speaking to BJPenn.com Covington revealed that if his friend and teammate Yoel Romero is not victorious in a rematch against the UFC middleweight champion, Robert Whittaker, then he will gladly move up to snatch his title away. “I’ll definitely have my eyes on that. I’m not going…

The Ballad of CM Punk

Move over Alistair Overeem and Curtis Blaydes, CM Punk is scheduled to return to the octagon at UFC 225 on June 9th against Mike Jackson. The buildup to this fight has come with a lot less media hype, which is probably a good thing seeing how bad things went for CM Punk in his first outing 20 months ago at UFC 203. To put things into perspective, Travis Browne also fought on that card in a unanimous decision loss against Fabricio Werdum in the co-main event. Browne is no longer…

Khabib Nurmagomedov: ‘McGregor has to Solve Problems Alone’

mcgregor khabib

UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov sent a message to Conor McGregor via Instagram amidst reports of a planned UFC 229 bout between both men. Khabib Nurmagomedov wanted to make it clear that the next steps towards finding a solution to the McGregor problem will not involve buses or dollies. However, Nurmagomedov did not include Monster energy drink cans in his statement so it’s safe to assume they’re fair game. When you see him, tell him: Conor the game has changed, now you have to play like a grown up man,…

Darren Till fails to make weight ahead of UFC Liverpool

You can add Darren Till to the list of high profile UFC fighters who failed to make weight recently. UFC Liverpool’s main event remains intact, but Till now carries a stigma with him along with an extra 3.5 lbs, moving forward regardless of the outcome. The 25-year-old hometown kid who described himself as a light heavyweight competing in the UFC’s welterweight division now finds himself eating crow. Reports stated that Till experienced a family emergency during the weight cutting process, which could give fans an idea of what excuse he’ll…

When Keeping it Crazy Goes Wrong at Bellator 200

Meet Carl Noon who looks like a villain from a Guy Richie movie and might actually be a Harbinger for the MMA Gods of old. I’m talking about the angry Just Bleed gods that tear ACL’s days before super fights and demand swangin’ and bangin’. Prior to last night Noon hadn’t fought for nearly 7 years. His last fight was a TKO loss to current UFC middleweight Jack Marshman. Ring rust appeared to be the last of Noon’s worries when he appeared mildly psychotic in his Bellator 200 pre-fight profile.…

Is Kamaru Usman for real?

ufc226

UFC #7 ranked welterweight Kamaru Usman has all but 7 fights under the promotion, but he feels he’s been deserving of a ranked opponent for the longest time. Tonight at UFC Chile he gets what he’s been asking for, but where will a victory over Demian Maia put him? Kamaru Usman, 31, has been in the UFC for nearly three years, but the self described most avoided fighter in the welterweight division has been itching for a ranked opponent for some time now. The problem is that five of his…
