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

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?

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…

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 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…

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…
