UFC on Fox 2: fights let down fans while the network lets down its affiliates

  PREVIOUSLY: UFC on Fox 2 Preview The second installment of the UFC on Fox delivered with some exciting fights, memorable finishes, and one of the better Lightweight fights of the past month between Evan Dunham and Nik Lentz. Too bad all of that was in the preliminaries. The reactions I … Continue reading

Why it would be in Zuffa’s best interests to initiate random drug testing

Just a week after Cris “Cyborg” Santos tested positive for stanazalol, Strikeforce has lost another headliner due to a failed drug test. Earlier this week, the Nevada State Athletic Commission announced that Muhammad “King Mo” Lawal had tested positive for another anabolic steroid, drostanolone, the day of the January 7th … Continue reading

UFC Flyweight Division to be announced this weekend

According to MMAFighting.com, Dana White is set to announce this weekend at UFC 140 that the Flyweight class (116 pounds to 125 pounds) is coming to the UFC. The move comes a little over a year after the UFC officially absorbed the WEC’s talent roster, establishing the UFC Bantamweight (135) … Continue reading

Is Anderson Silva really injured, ducking fights, or is he just bored?

Chael Sonnen is convinced that Anderson Silva is afraid of a rematch. He tells people that, in his mind, he won that fight and that he’s the true Middleweight Champion.

Michael Bisping has a chance to prove himself against Demian Maia at UFC on Fox 2


The UFC has released the full card (sans a couple prelims yet to be decided) for UFC on Fox 2 on Saturday, January 28th. In addition to the previously announced main event of Rashad Evans vs. Phil Davis and co-main of Chael Sonnen vs. Mark Munoz, both presumably to determine … Continue reading

Monday Fallout: Silva/Le stoppage at UFC 139 wasn’t questionable, but Cung Le’s judgement was

Le took literally the beating of his life this past Saturday night, and it was totally avoidable.

 I’ve read both ire and praise directed towards Joe Rogan after he vehemently criticized the stoppage in the second round of Saturday’s fight between Wanderlei Silva and Cung Le.  Surely, Rogan has been around long enough to know better than hugging your opponent’s calves with your face on the mat … Continue reading

Why the winner of Ben Henderson vs. Clay Guida may not determine a #1 contender

Ever since it was announced that Clay Guida would face former WEC Lightweight champion Ben Henderson on the undercard of the first UFC on Fox event (Saturday, November 12th), speculations and assumptions have built towards an inevitable conclusion: the winner would be #1 contender to the UFC Lightweight title. Not … Continue reading

Flash Bias: why do fans hate good fighters who win decisions?

Dominick Cruz is a generation ahead of pretty much every other fighter at 135, but he faces a bias against good fighters who win by decision.

Due to a prior obligation, I unfortunately missed last Saturday’s UFC Live on Versus during its initial airing. Judging by the results, it was exactly what I expected it to be: a woefully underlooked card that provided some of the more entertaining bouts in recent months. I was disappointed, however, … Continue reading
