Ownership

That’s what Conor wants, but is that a good idea? What happens if he is part owner of UFC and gets into another one of his scrapes with the law? Then what? That damages the brand. It’s one thing for fighters to be gangster, but not an owner. That would be a real cause for concern. And he will be a minority owner for sure, but his character is so […]

Nashville

And Pettis brought the chaos. In case you missed it, Wonderboy got KTFO’d via Superman punch, and went down almost exactly like Till did last week. He also looked twice as big as Pettis, but we learned from last week that size doesn’t matter when you’re a good striker. It started out a little boring. So boring, DC and his dude made a remark about the 3 piece with a […]

Highs and lows

After last weekend, this fight night might be a letdown. How can you beat that KO and that 3 piece? Life goes on. Woodley wants McG. That doesn’t sound like a fair fight, does it? Why would Conor fight Woodley? What’s the point? Conor is a former lightweight champ and fights at 170 for fun. He doesn’t cut down to 170. Come on Tyron. Maybe he should focus on being […]

No fight

TJ pops and gives up. No fight, just some passive language about how something happened and here’s the belt. Just handed it over without a fight. Contaminated substance maybe? No one is really saying much beyond that. UFC isn’t either. I guess I’ll just find some GS cookies and forget all about TJ. Unfollowed. My man Luke is finally coming back, matched up with Blachowicz. It’s hard being a Rockhold […]

UFC London post mortem

These were my picks: Teco, Volkan, Edwards, Masvidal. Considering Volkan’s robbery, it was all good for me. I already told y’all that the best nights for UFC are when fans are left shook. Shook! The OMG moments we can’t stop talking about. I don’t think I have ever seen/heard a venue go silent like it did at the O2. Amazing work by Masvidal. Do you want to be a fighter? […]

Crime scene

Answering my own question, exciting things do happen in London. This fight night ended like an episode of Law & Order. Daren Till got brutally knocked out and was laid out on the mat like a crime scene sketch. Out cold. I need to follow Askren on Twitter to find out what happened. Didn’t he say he went to London to call out the winner of this fight? I was […]

UFC London tonight

So I lied. I said I wouldn’t care, or more appropriately for the pedants, I could not care less if Ben Askren gets shipped back to ONE. I said I would sleep very well (like a baby!) if I never saw him fight again. Upon reconsideration, I have had a change of heart. Ben was killing it in London this week. In his interviews, UFC promo work, and he saved […]

Title shots

There was only one fight that had title implications at UFC Wichita – JDS vs Lewis. I like The Beast and was rooting for him even though he was not the favorite going in. He has had a very lucky streak lately, culminating with a title shot with the other GOAT, DC. What’s next for Lewis? What about Tuivasa? Blaydes? He’s not getting another shot (unless he volunteers on short […]

Tiny lives matter too

More weight classes are needed in UFC – male and female. I am not sure why some guys feel the need for a 165 weight class, that number just seems so arbitrary. If it’s being proposed in addition to the 155ers, it makes no sense. A new group isn’t needed, but a reorganization is probably in order. 135, 145 – Same. Appears to be working out for the guys, unless […]

Black (and brown) fighters matter

Every male champ in the UFC is black or brown except TJ. Yeah! Let’s take a look. HW is DC. LHW is of course Jon Jones. Middleweight is the rightful champ, Yoel Romero.* Lightweight is Tony Ferguson.* Feather is vacant. In the case of a vacancy, the disputed title holder is the GOAT, Jose Aldo.** Bantam is TJ the snake.*** Fly is Cejudo. I don’t want to hear anything else […]
