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 […]

UFC 235 post mortem

I was going to post something after the fights, but I fell asleep during the press conference. About last night – Cifers looked ok, but she needs to be aware of that other part of the sport: Interviews. It’s not okay to say you hate the media, or that you just want to fight, fans want to hear from you. Diego Sanchez – I am not ready for his retirement, […]

It’s not over yet

But these old champs are on the way out. Tyron was talking about being the best welterweight of all time, then he got wrestled to death for 5 rounds. Jones is also talking about his future and legacy. He might have a rough night too. I hope not, but they all hit the wall at some point. M

It’s just business

I saw an interview online with Eddie Alvarez. He’s talking about his new life with ONE and that’s he’s happy because the fighters come first. I guess somebody told him that, that the fighters come first. Is that how they got him to sign his contract by telling him, over here at ONE, the fighters come first? That makes no sense. In business, the customer comes first. I don’t know […]
