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…

UFC 208 Last Minute Picks

UFC 208 Last Minute Picks

Terrible card for betters tonight. Absolute garbage. Therefore a perfect place to start our official Bum Picks. Despite the name, these Bum picks are guaranteed winners 100% of the time. I have been an accomplished MMA better for months and if Denzel wins the Oscar later this month I will have tripled my bank roll. (Full Disclosure my earnings came in-part or in whole because of a large early +550 bet on trump and a season of Patriots dominance.) But all that is irrelevant, let’s get into the picks. I’m not touching…

The Hurt Business Now on Netflix

The Hurt Business Now on Netflix

Hurt Business Netflix Streaming Link This is the MMA documentary from the Director of Generation Iron, it premiered in september of last year and wasn’t especially well received. Most the interview footage was shot late 2014 to early 2015. Back when MMA was still illegal in NY, Rousey was champ, and Jones was boasting about his PED-free status. It doesn’t spend too long going over the history and follows both big name guys like Rashad during his rehab as well as lower level dudes fighting on indian reservations. As a whole it’s a pretty bleak look at MMA in terms of…

Heather Clark’s Nose Should Retire

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…

Demian Maia is Rousey’ing the Welterweight Division

Demian Maia is Rousey’ing the Welterweight Division

Good God UFC on Fox 21 just ended and at 38 years old Demian Maia looked better than ever. He threw one punch then cut through Condit on the ground in under two minutes. Maia’s run of submission dominance is something new fans might not be surprised to see since Ronda did just that to the women’s bantamweight division for years until she got head kicked to hollywood. But subbing do nothing bitches in the new women’s 135lb division is one thing. The men’s welterweight division on  the other hand is a fucking lion’s den of…
