Let's stop the crying about early stoppages. Logic says Henderson's complaints are unjust.

First, let me just say I'm a big Henderson fan. With that out of the way, I'm going to say that there is NO controversy with the stoppage by Big John. It's really very simple. The only reason...

Why Cormier doesn't have a chance against Jones.

One word? Size. Two words? Size. Knees. Bas Rutten always talks about size differences with fighters. Essentially his view is that similar skilled fighters are separated when it comes to size. In...

Let's giggle about Jones vs. Cormier - Media Day. What's your take on it?

First piece of advice, watch this at least twice. Heck three or four times might not be enough. There are enough nuggets in there to really enjoy. The tweets afterwards make the whole event even...

Drug testing is the biggest threat to the UFC

Drug testing is the greatest threat to the UFC. Increased random drug testing is a worse proposition than a fighters union, believe me. The only fault here is on the professional sports culture....

Wake up MMA refs. This is intelligent defense isn't it?

I grit my teeth when I write this. It's with frustration that I write this. No question the sport of MMA is new and along with that the rules and enforcement appear to be a work in progress. I'm...

The real truth about UFC 174

No question if you're Dana White sitting cage side, this one stung. Can flyweights do a headliner? Can a card really have basically two noteworthy fights? It didn't look deep enough and that was...

Keys for Bellator's long term success.

I have watched most if not all the Bellator events of the past few years. Needless to say, the first PPV event from Bellator was a crowning achievement of sorts for the organization. It has become...

Dan Miragliotta is the best ref in MMA. Here's why.

Dan Miragliotta is the best ref in MMA. He possesses one key intangible. It's called decision making. He has an uncanny ability to step in at the right moment to stop a fight. It's never too early...

Injuries in MMA. Full disclosure should be mandatory immediately following a fight.

Here is what I don't like. I don't like see match like Werdum had, only to find out that his opponent had a cracked/broken rib in the first round. What I don't like is that in round 1, Glover...

Jon Jones should not fear youth, fame, or leeches. He should fear his leg.

Forget all the concerns the UFC might have about Jon Jones. A young guy, lots of success, lots of temptations. Those exist, but to me there is a far greater concern. It's called his leg. His legs,...

Carano: The impossible sell.

I'll keep my own views on Carano out of this. From an observation perspective, the loyal long time UFC and MMA fans are not going to be sold on how the immediate title match makes sense. Further,...

Hughes on GSP - Completely Wrong, Here's Why.

Matt Hughes commenting on GSP? Read the story and quotes. Fact is, Hughes is completely wrong. It's not that GSP is sliding, aging or that the competition is getting closer to his skill set. You...

UFC Fight Pass - The Fatal Flaw

I'm a fan of Fight Pass, but I sense I'm the exception to the rule. There is one substantial problem with the timing. I think getting people to pay for something when it was offered for free is a...

The Ultimate Fighter is broken and here's why and here's the fix.

People go on and on about TUF and how bad it is. In fact the MMA "experts" often say publicly they don't watch or simply watch the fight and none of the other parts of the show. Is this a clue that...

UFC needs Brock Lesnar more than ever

This may be pretty obvious at this point, but the UFC needs Brock more than ever. Not just a little bit, but in a really big way. Regardless of whether you think he's going to challenge for the...

GSP vs Hendriks decision the biggest overblown hype train in history

I'm going to state facts here. Everyone ranting about the decision is basing their views on "emotion". By feel. I'm sure most people had the commentary running while watching the fight also. I also...

Are Bellator PPV's just being done to keep fighters under contract?

Just a thought. I completely respect all fighters so this isn't a slam against them at all. It's about motivation and the head scratching that I'm doing. It's becoming clearer that Bellator...
