OUTSIDE THE UFC: PHIL DAVIS SIGNS TO BELLATOR 163 AND MAIA VS. MODAFERRI TONIGHT ON INVICTA FC 19

WHY CRIS CYBORG’S WEIGHT BATTLE CALLS FOR SOME NEW CHANGES IN WMMA

In any prize fighting sport weight is a big deal. I know what you’re thinking, what about back in the day before weight classes, when Royce Gracie defeated Gerard Gordeau at UFC 1? While a prime example, the UFC didn’t really evolve as a sport until it started making weight classes and implementing rules. Today it’s a multi-billion dollar company who’s set to have their first New York card UFC 205 at MSG. But even with it’s newfound success, there’s still a few kinks left to work out.

What The Hell Is Going On With UFC 205?

So UFC 205, the first major mixed martial arts event in the great state of New York, is right around the corner. Yet, with only a month and change until the event there still has been no fights booked. What? Not having fights booked six weeks out from an event is something that’s a rarity for a smaller promotion much less the biggest fight organization in MMA. The UFC has yet to get a main or co-main event slotted to entice the fans. For now everything is “in the works,” but at this point the UFC needs to get things set in stone.

Bad Stoppages, The Ruining Of Potential Classics, And The Thankless Job Of Refereeing


Yes the Uriah Hall and Derek Brunson bout took place a few days ago in Hidalgo, Texas. Yes it is Tuesday, so I’m aware of how much time had passed since then so I’m sure some of you will make it a point to let that fact be known. Nevertheless, there are still some talking points to discuss on the subject no matter how long ago the event took place. The subject that that must be discussed is the thankless job of refereeing.

SCORE ONE FOR THE BAD GUY: CHAEL SONNEN’S COMEBACK FUELED BY “PURE ANGER” ON THE GAME

Chael Sonnen has never been my favorite guy. While a great fighter and the only one to solve the puzzle that is Anderson Silva in his heyday (partially anyway) – his loud mouth WWE wrestling style never took with me. While he did bring a lot of eyeballs to the sport, I always thought he was fake, and called for fights he knew he couldn’t win. So it came as a surprise when I found out he was coming out of “pure anger” for the current state of the game.

Uriah Hall vs Derek Brunson: The Awesome Rivalry No One Is Talking About

Why the hell has no one been talking about this fight?! Could it be because of the legions of UFC events that we’ve been bombarded with for the last month or so? Is it because both these men aren’t household names? The truth is that it’s anyone’s guess. There’s no way that this fight won’t be intriguing to watch, particularly due to all the trash talk both men are throwing out at each other. Uriah Hall and Derek Brunson certainly have no love lost between each other and really, isn’t that what you want out of a fight?
