Found Footage: Chris Weidman vs Ben Askren

We all know that wrestling is essential to having a complete MMA game. You can be the best striker on this planet, but if you don’t know how to fend off a double leg takedown then you’re likely not going to go too far in high level mixed martial arts. Wrestling is perhaps the most important skill to have in MMA and because of that very reason stars like Matt Hughes, Jon Jones, Cain Velasquez, and much more were able to dominate the competition. Another two well decorated wrestlers who have made the transition to MMA are former UFC middleweight champion Chris Weidman and ONE FC welterweight champion Ben Askren.

Rumor Mill: Matt Brown vs Mike Perry Is The Slobber-Knocker We All Deserve

If this is true, then color me impressed. Talk about great match making. Matt Brown and Mike Perry may be set to lock horns at UFC 207 in Las Vegas later this year. Mike Perry is still pretty fresh as a UFC prospect, but has already done enough to garner interest in his contest. He has a polarizing personality, but can back everything up with some well placed power shots. Matt Brown is an absolute beast and even though he may have lost to Jake Ellenberger in his last outing, it doesn’t change the fact that he has the mentality of a warrior. Matching these two up means guaranteed fireworks in the Octagon. So how exactly do these two match up anyways?

Did Dan Henderson Deserve The Win At UFC 204?


So, yeah, wasn’t expecting that fight to go that way. Dan Henderson once again proved the adage that power is the last thing to leave an older fighter. Henderson nearly flat lined Michael Bisping a number of times during their UFC 204 main event showdown. While most media outlets and MMA pundits didn’t give Henderson a snowball’s chance, me included, the veteran proved that the power in his right hand has the ability to make the impossible possible. Though Bisping showed heart and performed well in the last few rounds of the bout, is there a case to say that Dan Henderson actually won the fight?

UFC 204 Breakdown: Michael Bisping vs Dan Henderson

If you told me this time last year that Michael Bisping would be the UFC middleweight champion in 2016 I would have laughed in your face. Not that I thought Bisping was unskilled or not capable, simply that the odds weren’t in his favor. If you had said Dan Henderson would be contending for that same middleweight title in the same stretch of time I would have calmly taken a step back and, once at a safe enough distance, asked if you were off your meds. But that’s the beauty of MMA. There’s no script, nothing that is set in stone.

Alex “Cowboy” Oliveira and The Importance Of Being Humble

So if you had the opportunity to tune into UFC Fight Night 96 then you saw a number of things take place. For one, you got to see two of the greatest fighters in the world at the bantamweight division throw down as John Lineker and John Dodson traded blows for five rounds and twenty-five minutes. Though the decision could be argued there’s no arguing that the fans got what they paid for with the main event. We also had the opportunity to see Alex “Cowboy” Oliveira defeat Will Brooks in the co-main event and then immediately disrespect his unconscious opponent moments after securing a knock out victory.
