UFC: Wonderboy The Wrestler

Stephen “Wonderboy” Thompson told Submission Radio that following his loss to Darren Till earlier this year, he’s decided to implement more offensive wrestling into his skillset as a means to keep his future opponents guessing. Lay and pray anyone? The nicest guy to ever step foot into a cage and participate in a fist fight finds himself at a crossroads. Stephen Thompson hasn’t been living up to his nickname of late. After producing five knockout victories in his first 8 UFC bouts, he’s gone to a decision five consecutive times…

UFC Lincoln: Unsung Heroes

A common trend amongst the names on Saturday’s UFC Fight Night: Gaethje vs. Vick is that most are either counted out or overlooked. Set in the middle of the UFC’s end of the year lineup, it’s fitting that the event take places in Lincoln, Nebraska. Justin Gaethje suffered two knockout losses between December and now, which places him in the class of damaged goods. Michael Johnson is not too far behind him, coming off three consecutive losses. Two by way of submission and one by TKO courtesy of Gaethje. Andre…

UFC: Till and Woodley More Alike Than You Think

It’s clear from a physical standpoint that both UFC welterweight champion Tyron Woodley and title challenger Darren Till are very different, but their records and character traits are quite similar, which will likely turn these two into best pals after their UFC 228 bout. Tyron Woodley and Darren Till had their first face off and verbal back-and-forth earlier this month and both men were immediately on the same page from the start. Woodley and Till walked towards each other anxiously, which had Dana White jumping at the chance to show…

UFC: Why We Should Thank Dana White For Fighter Bashing

If you thought UFC president Dana White has a regretful bone in his body, you’re sorely mistaken. Uncle Dana spoke to Fox News earlier this week and made himself loud and clear in regards to not holding back when fighters put on poor performances. Well it looks like Brendan Schaub won’t be receiving an apology letter from his former boss anytime soon. Dana White has no problem in dishing out verbal onslaughts towards his fighters, but like anything in life it could always be worse. For instance, back in 2006…

UFC’s Yoel Romero: The People’s Champ

Yoel Romero told Ariel Helwani on Monday that he will not be fighting Paulo Costa at UFC 230 this November, but the “Soldier of God” still finessed a sweet new contract, which makes him the clear winner. The 41-year-old lab experiment gone right found himself in hot water just two years ago when he was flagged by USADA. The MMA world took the opportunity to turn against poor Romero. A victim of tainted supplements immune to any traces of dad bod. Well, the joke was on them. Romero went from…

UFC: Latifi Wants Jon Jones

It looks like the GOAT is foreshadowing a showdown against Jon “Bones” Jones in the near future. Jones answered the call expressing interest in fighting Ilir Latifi so long as he keeps winning.  Winning, you say? Because that’s all that Ilir Latifi knows how to do. The infamous Sweden native is entering his prime at the ripe age of 35 in a wide open light heavyweight division. He’s won five of his last six bouts. The lone loss against Ryan Bader shouldn’t count given that Latifi simply wanted some rest…

UFC: No Interest in GSP At Lightweight

dana white WWE

If you thought Dana White would allow Georges St-Pierre to vie for a chance at becoming a three division UFC champion, you thought wrong. Dana White is having none of it. For now. Georges St-Pierre spent all of his UFC career representing the sport of mixed martial arts with integrity and class and became one of their biggest pay-per-view draws in the process. St-Pierre pulled it off not by getting into Twitter wars or engaging in scuffles, but rather by being a top caliber champion in the welterweight division. Didn’t…

Francis Ngannou falls out of favor with the UFC

Less than a year ago Francis Ngannou was being praised by the UFC and promoted more prominently than former UFC heavyweight champion Stipe Miocic. Today, Ngannou is sitting on two consecutive losses while serving as the butt of many jokes in the MMA community. So you wanna be an ultimate fighter? The Camaroonian-French fighter ended 2017 with one of the most vicious knockouts in MMA history against Alistair Overeem. Unfortunately, 2018 hasn’t been as kind to Francis Ngannou. Going from Just Bleed to Just throw a punch in a short…

The UFC Standbys

It’s no secret that injuries have hindered several big UFC events and as the UFC enters the fourth quarter of 2018, Dana White and company have been more vocal on having members of the roster on standby in case of injury. Today, there are no shortages of standbys for some crucial events coming to an MMA theater near you. Welcome to the UFC injury reserve list. So far we’ve got Kamaru Usman, Kevin Lee and potentially Colby Covington and Tony Ferguson. Names like Alexander Volkov, Jeremy Stephens, Kelvin Gastelum, Brian…

UFC: Everyone Wants to Fight TJ Dillashaw

It’s been less than a week since TJ Dillashaw retained his UFC bantamweight title against Cody Garbrandt, and that’s plenty of time for fighters from his division, outside his division and even outside of MMA, to call for Dillashaw’s throne. TJ Dillashaw put on a performance so impressive that the media and fans alike are ready to call him the greatest bantamweight fighter of all time. Dominick Cruz and his fans took issue with that notion and believe that both men need to settle it in a rematch. Then there’s…
