Who is Headlining UFC 230?

With UFC 228 in the books and no UFC 229 press conference in sight (reportedly taking place next Thursday) says Brett Okamoto, it’s only right to shift our attention to UFC 230. The stacked Madison Square Garden card is filled with enticing bouts, but it’s still missing a main event. Here are some options. One of the most realistic match ups is probably TJ Dillashaw fighting Henry Cejudo. Both men expressed interest in fighting each other almost immediately following their victories at UFC 227 a month ago. The only problem…

UFC 228: Underdogs Worth Betting On

UFC 228 on paper carries more depth than next month’s likely highest grossest UFC pay-per-view card of the year. The event is not the only thing being overlooked, several fighters are being overlooked according to the betting odds, which could result in an upset or two. Tyron Woodley and Darren Till both appeared horrible doing media rounds a day before official weigh ins. As Till inches closer to the unforgiving scale, his chances of successfully making championship weight appear better. The Liverpool native’s odds of defeating both the UFC scale…

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…

Darren Till Gets Title Shot over Covington

The 2018 Nerd Bash Movement appears to be on hold as the UK’s Darren Till will serve as Tyron Woodley’s next opponent at UFC 228. Things aren’t all bad with Colby Covington who has finally transitioned into a good guy, at least in the perspective of his sympathizers. Surprise surprise. The UFC had little patience in booking a title unification bout between UFC welterweight champion, Tyron Woodley and interim UFC welterweight champion, Colby Covington. The savior of the 170-pound division claimed interim gold a little over a month ago and…

UFC 214 Sleeper Fight: Lawler vs. Cerrone

UFC 214 appears to be the most stacked card of 2017 with Jon “Bones” Jones’ highly anticipated return versus his archnemesis Daniel Cormier. However, before the main event we get two exciting title fights. Tyron Woodley defends his Welterweight title against perhaps the best Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu practitioner in MMA today, Demian Maia. But first the woman with one name, Cyborg, will tee off against the former Invicta bantamweight champion Tonya Evinger for the freshly abandoned women’s Featherweight Strap. Three belts are up for grabs tonight and none more contentious than…

Woodley Ends the Lawler Era

I dunno if there is anyone in MMA today more frightening in the first round than Woodley. He’s got an amazing wrestling base that leaves opponents no choice but to stand with him and pray he doesn’t banish them to the shadow realm in those first five minutes. He’s taken the Chuck Liddel recipe for success and added about 50 lbs of blacksposiveness to the mix. Fighting woodly is like trying to outrun a semi truck with a gallon of fuel, if you can just stay ahead of it for…
