Turns out Weidman Was Faking it at UFC 210

Turns out Weidman Was Faking it at UFC 210

Weidman’s last fight vs. Mousasi at UFC 210 ended in the least fulfilling way a fight can end, via doctor’s stoppage. If you need a refresher, the controversy began after referee Dan Miragliotta called a break to the action at three minutes into round number two after Mousasi hit Weidman with a knee while Weidman appeared to have both hands on the ground. At which point Miragliotta called in the ringside physician, the doc gave him the old count my fingers and look at my light routine and things didn’t look good. Anytime the doctor spends more than 15 seconds…

War Machine Trial: Christy Mack Takes the Stand & the Defense is Failing Wildly

War Machine Trial: Christy Mack Takes the Stand & the Defense is Failing Wildly

The War Machine Trial began this week, he’s being charged with over 30 felonies for the alleged beating of former girlfriend Christy Mack and another man. It’s been two years since that event first made MMA headlines in the worst way, and for the past two days Christy Mack has been on the witness stand. Even after having seen the photos of the aftermath listening to her account of the whole thing is shocking. Hearing her testimony alongside the mountain of evidence the prosecution presented on Thursday makes it very…

UFC 209 Betting Picks: Underdogs All Day

UFC 209 Betting Picks: Underdogs All Day

The UFC 209 prelims are an hour away which means millions of people are frantically refreshing the site looking for my picks. So let’s get right into it because unlike Khabib’s kidney’s my bet picks never fail. We have one prop pick from the prelims, and that’s not just because it involves one of the only fighters on the prelims I’ve actually heard of. What MMA fan isn’t familiar with The Hand of Godbeer or Daniel Daddy Long Legs? That fights a real mismatch in terms of nicknames but it’s…

Betting Overeem vs Hunt UFC 209

Betting Overeem vs Hunt UFC 209

Hearing Mark Hunt do media this week it’s clear he doesn’t want to be there. But whether we will see that reflected in his performance is tough to say. Mark Hunt is the type of guy who’s ready to fight while he’s pumping gas. If you called him while he was grocery shopping and offered him a title fight in the parking lot he’d be there in 4 minutes wearing gloves and his bus sized shorts. So it’s tough to bet against Mark despite the distractions of his pending lawsuit and despite his one…

GSP vs Bisping (or Yoel Romero & the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day)

GSP vs Bisping (or Yoel Romero & the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day)

Dana white announced today that GSP and Bisping will fight for the middleweight title in Vegas later this year. Which means the velvet voiced Yoel Romero was asked to kindly goose step his way out of the title picture so WME could better chip away at their billion dollar debts. I was unfortunately working on an article breaking down GSP’s potential opponents when I heard the announcement. And boy what an article it would have been, all three weight classes were in play and everyone from Nate Diaz to Anderson…

Fight Spotlight: Nurmagomedov vs Michael Johnson

Fight Spotlight: Nurmagomedov vs Michael Johnson

Welcome to our very first free fight film club, where we rewatch old fights sober with the benefit of hindsight. In preparation for UFC 209 next weekend the UFC has uploaded Khabib’s last fight against Michael Johnson which took place November in Madison Square Garden. This was the night McGregor won the Lightweight belt and in just over a week Khabib will fight El Cucuy for the now interim lightweight belt. Watch now before you read on. After rewatching it, this fight went a lot differently then I remembered. You can never trust…

Black Beast Ignores Bell & Continues to Pummel Browne

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…

Black Beast In This Hoe!

Black Beast In This Hoe!

Don’t kick a beast’s belly young man or you’ll get the horns. Fight Night 105 was Derrick Lewis’s coming out party and the Black Beast has finally arrived…up in this hoe. I’ve always wondered what guys do when they have to take a shit right before a fight. They never know how long the fights before them will run and once you get your hands wrapped there’s no turning back. Granted UFC gloves are small and fingerless but I still don’t think you want to attempt some last minute wiping…

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

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…

Jose Waldo Biopic Now on Netflix

Jose Waldo Biopic Now on Netflix

Netflix Streaming Link Netflix is somehow adding more streaming MMA content than Fight Pass these days. Today they picked up Jose Aldo’s biopic: Stronger Than The World. It covers his early life up to his UFC debut in the Mark Hominick fight. And not to spoil too much, but the movie opens up with Jose and his friends playing a good old fashioned game of Pedestrian Baseball. It’s sad to think the poverty in Rio was so bad that they were forced to do drive-bys with two by fours. Something privileged american gangbangers wouldn’t understand. Anyhow, when it comes…
