Fallout: Chokes, Referees, and Kevin Lee, Tony Ferguson Talking Major Trash

UFC Fight Night 112 saw some major controversy in the main event. The fight between Michael Chiesa and Kevin Lee was anticipated to be a high stakes game between two fighters hoping to enter title contention with a win Sunday night. But instead of everyone speaking on how great the main event was, everyone is talking about Mario Yamasaki’s supposed “flub.”

Bellator 180: Douglas Lima vs Lorenz Larkin Will Be A Striker’s Delight

Perhaps my most anticipated fight on this card, Douglas Lima versus Lorenz Larkin is a truly wonderful match up between two strikers with very different styles. We have the bare bones approach of Douglas Lima against the flashier yet effective strikes of Lorenz Larkin. While there are many other intriguing fights on this card, this could easily be the main event.

Bellator 180: Phil Davis Is Out For Revenge Against Ryan Bader

You know, it’s kinda funny. Initially I had mixed feelings on this bout as far as interest goes. But after watching the first fight between these two and seeing how evenly matched they were years back, curiosity has taken over and made this one a fight to watch. The first fight was pretty close with Phil Davis and Ryan Bader negating each others wrestling. It made for a mediocre kickboxing match with moments of clinch work and the occasion wrestling scramble. Being obsessed with patterns as of late, it’s curious to see which of these two have improved upon what worked in the first match.

Bellator 180: James Gallagher Looks To Best Veteran Karate Master Chinzo Machida

It’s getting to be something when the most anticipated mixed martial arts card of the week is a Bellator event. It’s saying even more when there is a UFC just the very next day. Times are changing indeed and while Bellator has put on fight cards before, the level of competition on Bellator 180 is truly impressive. While I won’t cover every single bout on the fight card, one of the more intriguing match ups pits Conor McGregor’s protege James Gallagher against veteran karate fighter and MMA convert Chinzo Machida.

UFC Fight Night Singnapore: Justin Scoggins vs Yuta Sasaki Will Be An Absolutely Wild Scrap

Been away for a bit and with the limited time I do have, I’ve decided to breakdown a fight that I’m really looking forward to. No disrespect to the other fighters on the card, but by now anyone who has been following my writing knows by now that I’m a full on karate nerd. Rather than try to hide this fact I’m being up front now that my most anticipated fights on the card are centered around a certain karate expert, Justin Scoggins. He draws the scrappy and unpredictable Yuta Sasaki in his return to flyweight.

Demetrious Johnson Speaks His Mind About Treatment By The UFC. Was It The Wrong Move?

Demetrious Johnson is officially the man in my book. While many fans may be discrediting him, stating that he’s some kind of coward for refusing to fight bantamweight contender TJ Dillashaw for the flyweight title, it’s hard not to see the champion’s points. It’s easy to sit there and point the finger, especially when you don’t have to do the fighting, but Demetrious Johnson airing out the laundry, namely his treatment by the UFC, is something every fighter and fan deserves to hear.

Fallout: Max Holloway And The Beauty of Solid Basics

Well, that escalated quickly now didn’t it. In one of the most anticipated fights of the year, Max Holloway once again showcased his superior ability to perform under the bright lights and in hostile territory no less. But the road to victory was by no means a cake walk for the Hawaiian fighter. Former featherweight champion Jose Aldo gave Max Holloway all he could handle before succumbing to ground and pound in the third round. Let’s get a glimpse at some of the big takeaways from UFC 212 and the fantastic main event that shook up the featherweight division.

UFC 212 Breakdown: Jose Aldo Is Out To Prove The Young Lion Max Holloway Isn’t Ready To Be King

Ever since the match up was announced the question has been on the hearts and minds of avid MMA fans: could Max Holloway defeat Jose Aldo? The answer as of now is that there’s no way to be sure. What’s alarming to me however is that many are suggesting that Jose Aldo is over the hill, that he doesn’t have it anymore, something that is clearly the furthest from the truth. The performance Jose Aldo put on against Frankie Edgar was a true work of art and should have at least informed fans of his incredible capabilities that he still possesses. Nevertheless, people just want to see new blood come in and do work and that’s what they’re hoping to see with Max Holloway.

UFC 212 Breakdown: Claudia Gadelha Looks To Conquer The Swarming Karolina Kowalkiewicz

After Sunday’s fights and Alexander Gustafsson’s brilliant performance against Glover Teixeira, the UFC is back with more action with a robust card in Rio de Janiero. While the main event features two of the top featherweights in the world, the co-main event offers up some strawweight action as two former title challengers square off. Claudia Gadelha versus Karoline Kowalkiewicz has all the makings of fight of the night written all over it. Both women fight at a high pace with their own individual strengths and weaknesses. It’s a nice style clash that should offer up some interesting results.
