A fighter's chin and ability to 'take shots' is always a focal point of discussion in MMA. If Melvin Guillard had a better chin, he could be a champion, if Chuck had been more concerned with how...

Record Analysis: Stephan Bonnar is Not THAT Bad

For a while, Stephan Bonnar became a bit of a punch line for plenty of MMA fans. He was a guy who was crappy, was losing more then winning, and was being kept around because of his involvement in...

Not bad at all, considering the last TUF finale averaged 1.8 million viewers. Can it just become the standard to have the coaches fight at the finale?

Yeah, I'm shamelessly plugging a youtube prediction tournament I am participating in. First round covered UFC 137 and 138, 2 points awarded for picking the right winner, and if your winner was right, 1 additional point was awarded for the right method of victory. Yes, I'm in to the next round, otherwise I wouldn't be plugging this, but it was not without a Nogueira-esque comeback. My matchup is shown at 2:25, I'm listed as ChrisPeteG. Wish me luck going forward.

'UFC Primetime: Velasquez vs. Don Santos' ratings: 1.3 HH rating, two million viewers

Hmmm, not sure if that is necessarily good or bad in the scheme of 'oh, it's network, the number should be high' but when you consider this season of TUF has been averaging 1.6 million viewers and the last fight night averaged 1.8 million...I don't think this is bad at all relative to UFC numbers.
