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…

UFC Fight Night: Atlantic City Recap

UFC Atlantic City was full of stories and weirdness, so let’s just get right into it. Main Card Edson Barboza vs. Kevin Lee: Result – Lee by Round 5 TKO My Prediction: Barboza by Round 4 TKO I’m not sure if I underestimated Lee or overestimated Barboza’s takedown defense, but I couldn’t have been more wrong about this fight. Lee looked outstanding and, aside from a wheel kick from Barboza that had him doing the stanky leg, dominated this fight from horn to horn. Barboza might be at the point…

Black Beast Ignores Bell & Continues to Pummel Browne

Mario Yamasaki needs to be fired. Three days have passed since UFC Fight Night 105 and Derrick Lewis continues to land unanswered shots on Travis Browne. It might surprise some to know that Derrick Lewis, lord of the swang and bang, is also a big time memer. Some might even say the most dangerous memer of all time. Just take one look at his instagram posts from the last twenty four hours if you don’t believe me:   🙌🏿 A post shared by Derrick Lewis (@thebeastufc) on Feb 21, 2017 at…

Big Rig is Back! Now with 68% More Dad Bod!

We had a pretty good night of fights Sunday. Hendricks and Lombard put on a particularly exciting fight in the co-main event, would have honestly loved to see a fourth round. Just a complete mirror match between two world class grapplers turned power strikers both experiencing a Jeff Novitzky related skid as of late. Johnny making his first appearance at 185 came in looking like a representative for the Oklahoma dad bod owners association. Whereas Lombard still looks like he was grown in a Cuban lab despite his 2015 suspension, although…

Heather Clark’s Nose Should Retire

Some noses weren’t meant to be punched repeatedly and Heather Jo Clarks nose is one of them. It’s looked broken after each of her last three fights and if she’s not prepared to go full voldemort it’s probably time to think about hanging them up. Speaking of thinking, Diego Sanchez’s brain should be close to retirement too. He pulled off a gritty upset tonight but he also passed BJ Penn with the fourth longest career fight time in the UFC. He looked good but given his propensity to slug it out his brain has got…
