Rant: With Top Fighters Leaving The UFC, How Long Until The Promotion Is No Longer High Level?

So lately we’ve been seeing a whole bunch of changes as far as the UFC is considered. Fighters are retiring and leaving the organization at a rate that seems pretty unusual considering the companies reputation as housing the greatest fighters in the world. The old saying is that if you’re not in the UFC you’re not fighting the best in the world. But with the company’s recent sale for billions of dollars, the fighters under the UFC banner are beginning to undergo a shift in thought process. The endeavor is called prize fighting for a reason and fighters are figuring that if they aren’t going to be paid what they’re worth then they’re going to explore their options.

Fallout: The Curious Case Of Travis Browne

UFC Fight Night featured a heavyweight main event against the surging Derrick Lewis and hit or miss Travis Browne. Now that description of Browne isn’t to insult the man. He’s still one of the best heavyweight fighters out there. But lately he hasn’t been able to hit the mark. At first everyone and their momma blamed Browne’s downfall on the training he’s been receiving. But with another loss under a different coach, one has to wonder if Browne is simply declining.

Holly Holm Officially Files Appeal To UFC 208 Decision

This saturday’s loss at UFC 208 was particularly bitter for Holly Holm. Not because it was her third loss in as many fights, not because she missed an opportunity to win the first ever women’s featherweight title, and not because she took a lot of damage. No, what made this fight particularly bitter were the shots landed after the bell and the points that weren’t taken for it.

UFC Suggesting Fighters and Coaches Purchase Fight Pass Instead of Sending Fight Tapes

Cheap Shot

We all know UFC is on the hunt for economy. After the WME-IMG’s 4 billion dollar purchase of the promotion from the Fertitta brothers things have been a bit tight to say the least. We’ve seen a myriad of “big money” fights and interim titles to garner interest in the casual fan. However there are some amenities a professional sports organization MUST provide, and tape of the rival individual/ team the athlete is facing is one of the

The Technique Thief: The Move Holly Holm Should Steal From Dominick Cruz

If you know me, which many of you don’t, you’d understand that I’m absolutely in love with striking. I certainly love MMA and respect the ground game a ton (this coming from a guy who was thoroughly entertained by Jon Fitch back in the day), but striking has always been my favorite part of the game and as such, I do have a leaning towards striking based fighters. But after witnessing the main event of UFC 208 it became painfully obvious that what was missing was some quality grappling work, mainly on Holly Holm’s end who initiated the wrestling exchanges.
