My predictions from exactly a year ago and results

July 1st, 2012 I decided to write down some predictions for what I thought would happen in the world of MMA halfway through 2013. I wrote these down in a text document and put a reminder on my...


An Open Letter to Jon Jones

Jon, I think you're conflicted. Hopefully this letter will help to guide you. On one hand you openly admit you want to make money. While you love fighting, you are doing it to get paid. I have...


Five Good things in the future for MMA

Did Tom Hardy take Steroids to play Bane?

Tom Hardy supposedly gained 30 pounds of muscle in 4 months to play Bane. Granted, if my job for 4 months was just to eat, sleep, workout, and try to get huge I imagine I could also bulk up quite a...

No talk of TUF?

Did I miss the TUF post for this week's episode?  If it's in the archives I must be overlooking it. Anyways, here's my 2 cents. I still DVR TUF, (I know this a double negative) but I just can't...


Why are mediocre heavyweights on the main card?

  It’s pretty much the general consensus that Rob Broughton vs. Travis Browne and Ben Rothwell vs. Mark Hunt were the low point of UFC 135.  Unfortunately, I was watching this card with some of my...
