John Dodson: Does he Go Back to BW

So....obviously one of the biggest winners coming out of UFC 173 has got to be Raphael Assuncao. Absolutely no one had any interest in Barao/Assuncao to the point where it seemed that the UFC was...

UFC 169: Stop the Bitching Already

So this morning, nursing a hangover, I watched the UFC 169 main card and thought it was pretty entertaining. Was it the great event of all-time? Not really, but I enjoyed it. So I was pretty...

Here's the video of my professor, BJJ black belt Filip Matos, training/teaching at Gracie Barra Vancouver, taking on Cody McKenzie at the finals at NAGA earlier this year. 10 seconds later, McKenzie taps to a wristlock.

Kevin Belingon Brutally KOs a Dude

4

Just pulled this off of MMAFighting. Kevin Belingon brutally KO'd David Aranda at OneFC. I always root for One's Filipino fighters, if only because it's always cool to see new areas of the world developing as a potential hot-bed for fighters. So I always want guys like Belingon, Honario Banario, Eric Kelly, and Eduard Folayang (who's had a rough patch of late) to do well.

The UFC's Ethnically-Driven Booking of UFC Macao is Stupid and Insulting

Just going to keep this short and sweet, but the more I think about it, the more I wonder....is ZUFFA really this stupid and culturally ignorant? It's clear that they've loaded the card with Asian...

TUF: Jones/Hendo - One of the Best Seasons of All-Time and Why the UFC is Too Damned Lazy to Make It

Let's get this out of the way first: I think having Jon Jones on TUF is a brilliant idea. The man is a proven ratings draw, seemingly able to single-handedly sell fights even if they put him in...

Strikeforce Fighters Really Do Deserve Bonuses
