The Last Emperor


We have heard all the criticism about his legacy, we have witnessed a new generation of Mixed Martial Artists, but I will never get tired watching what this man did in the ring. His precision, his endurance, tenacity, and his ice cold presence. If I was told I can only watch one more MMA bout hands down I would chose Fedor. His kind of violence was unique and will never be replicated again in the world of MMA. He is, by far, the best MMA fighter in the ring.

I Want To Make A Case For Machida Toppling Jones, I Just Can't Find One.

What Do You Do When Your Talent Has Real Mental Issues? Don't overreact!

Nick Diaz has a problem and it is serious. We can all sit behind our keyboards and call him a bum, unprofessional, scared, whatever. It's none of those things. He has severe anxiety issues,...


So You Wanna Be A Bleepin' Number 2 Organization?!?

Day by day, Strikeforce is undergoing a dramatic facelift. Some say this is the last throws of a dying organization. I'm not totally sold on that yet, but let's say it is. Today, an organization,...


"Overeem is under contract, and when his pinky toe heals up, we'll get him another fight."

Jon Olav Einemo Has Fought In The Last Year


Last June Jon Olav Einemo participated in Dennis Stojnic's event "Golden Glory Versus The World". He defeated Kresimir Bogdonovich (3-1-1) with a second round choke at the event. Yes, it was non-sanctioned and Bogdonovich is not a top level fighter by any means, but JOE's cage rust isn't quite what people think. JOE with a first round RNC for Pee Wee.
