The face of a man who is about to get PAID!

DC Lesnar

DC becomes the nicest baddest man on the planet. To come up in weight and knockout the most accomplished heavyweight in UFC history, in the first round no less, is the most impressive thing I’ve seen in MMA. And it happened directly after the least impressive thing I’ve seen in that trash fire of a fight between Lewis and Ngannou. Conor was the first fighter to make history holding simultaneous UFC belts but DC just did it with the two biggest belts in the business. He’s now both the baddest…

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.…

UFC Legends Can’t Retire Until Lyoto Machida Front Kicks Their Face

Some Companies give you a gold watch and a pension when you retire in the ufc you get a swift crane kick to the face. Couture got one and at UFC 224 tonight Vitor got his too. THE DRAGON ROARS AGAIN! 🐲 @LyotoMachidaFW #UFC224 pic.twitter.com/ILXkb9DYvo — UFC (@ufc) May 13, 2018 An absolutely crazy end to the fight and the UFC career of one of the greatest to ever do it. I haven’t factchecked this but Vitor must have had the longest career in UFC history. From UFC 12 all…

You Cannot Assign 320lb Security Guards to Flyweight Fights…

No two ways about it, this is a tough look. Aside from getting one punch KO’d, the absolute worst thing that can happen to you as a flyweight fighter is if the Palms security guard assigned to your corner is a six foot five, three hundred twenty pound houseboat. Never has my interest in a fight dropped faster then when I saw this red Goliath. And Stamann, with seemingly no octagon awareness, sidled right up beside him. Man what are you doing? Is this your first time being four foot…

Dana White Threatens to Scrap Flyweight Division if DJ Doesn’t Fight TJ

Demetrious Johnson may still be months away from tying Anderson Silva’s title defense record but he just recorded another win today, this time in his fight against the UFC. Johnson issued a statement to MMAFighting in response to the recent attacks by Dana White and he did so in the only way he knows how: complete domination with a well laid out, technically precise and concise breakdown of the situation. You can read his full statement below but his main points are this: The latest statements by Dana White disparaging…

UFC 211 Betting Picks: Brazilian Upsets

Big card tonight, we finally have some titles on the line and not to spoil my picks but I think we may see both of them change hands. Let’s first talk about JDS Miocic. Now I’m no MMA Analyst but I reckon if you are looking to predict the outcome of a rematch then a good place to start is the first fight. Junior Dos Santos won that first fight by unanimous decision; and statistics tell us that MMA rematches are, more often than not, won by the victor of…

Why Daniel Cormier Hates Jon Jones

The UFC held its Summer Kickoff Presser tonight and if you haven’t yet watched it, you should. It seems everyone is following the McGregor model, we got DC throwing water bottles at Jon Jones, fist fights over momma jokes, and Kevin Lee stealing Conor’s El Chapo stylist while simultaneously accusing him of cultural appropriation. All the while JoJo and Karolina are battling it out over who can be the cutest and most demure professional fighter. Wild show. At one point DC questions whether Jon Jones will make it to the…

GSP vs Bisping is Off: Yoel Gets the Title Shot!

I thought 2016 was supposed to be the year of the superfight? Mighty Mouse was talking about going up to bantamweight, McGregor is supposed to fight Mayweather, and GSP was looking to become a two weight world champ. We’re halfway through the year and not only are we superfight-less but there’s only been three title fights. That’s if you don’t count Holm vs. de Randamie and I don’t count Holm vs. de Randamie. Hell it doesn’t even feel right counting Woodley vs. Thompson 2. Rough start to the year for the UFC, and it…

Is Chuck Liddell Making a Comeback?

The rumor mill has been churning as of late with the possibility of an iceman comeback. Roughly six and a half years ago Chuck Liddell announced his retirement at the behest of his former manager, now UFC president Dana White. To encourage him to make that decision Dana gave him, what was assumed to be, a largely ceremonial but well paying job as the Vice President of Business Development. Well that presumably cushy gig came to an end last year shortly after WME-IMG bought the UFC for 4 billion dollars. Without that…

Cody Garbrandt Talks Knockouts in Practice

Matt Serra made headlines earlier this week when he confirmed he’s seen the tape of Garbrandt knocking out TJ Dillashaw in practice. The teammates turned rivals have been going back and forth publicly about the existence of this tape ever since their fight was announced back in June. TMZ even apparently offered Alpha Male head coach, Justin Bucholz $50,000 for a copy of said tape. Now that Matt Serra, a respected, neutral, third party has weighed in it looks like Garabrant and crew we’re telling the truth. A bit of a hollow…
