Matches to Make After: Adesanya vs. Costa

Israel Adesanya put on a striking clinic against Paulo Costa – finishing the Brazilian in round two. Using distance, Izzy landed at will against Costa. For whatever reason, Costa decided against using his usual pressure and volume striking, but instead decided to be a non-moving target for Izzy to pick apart. As for the co-main…

Matches to Make After: Covington vs. Woodley

A card that felt like a PPV delivered, with excellent preliminary bouts to entertaining main card action too. While the headliner featuring Colby Covington and Tyron Woodley featured the most buzz, the fight itself didn’t particularly live up to it. Covington dominated the fight from start to finish and once again finds himself back in…

Matches to Make After: Waterson vs. Hill

Michelle Waterson and Angela Hill put together an unbelievable fight at UFC Fight Night 177. In a tightly contested five round affair, Hill seemed to be in the driver’s seat after two rounds. However, the tide changed in the third round, as Waterson took Hill down and controlled her for a good portion of the…

Matches to Make After: Overeem vs. Sakai

The Demolition man has once again proved that at 40 years old, he is still a legit threat in the UFC Heavyweight division. Not only did he show durability, absorbing 99 strikes, but also the ability to still better a fighter eleven years his elder in Augusto Sakai. In the first two rounds, Sakai more…

Solving the: Welterweight Division

Welterweight Champion Tyron Woodley successfully went underneath the knife, getting his nagging shoulder fixed. Typically the recovery time for shoulder surgery is 4-6 month’s, meaning the earliest to expect Woodley back would probably be international fight week in July. With the Champion shelved and worthy contenders like Rafael Dos Anjos and Colby Covington awaiting a…

Solving the: UFC Middleweight Division

On November 4, 2017 George St. Pierre, the greatest Welterweight of all-time returned the octagon at UFC 217. It would be four years since St. Pierre last competed, as he made the jump up to the Middleweight division to take on UFC Middleweight Champion Michael Bisping. In a fight in which their were many unknowns…

Solving the: UFC Light Heavyweight Division

When Jon Jones returned at UFC 214, he brought an obvious boost to the Light Heavyweight division. A division, in which had been in good hands by Daniel Cormier, but obviously missed having whom many consider to be the greatest mixed martial artist of all-time. That statement held true, as Jones successfully recaptured his belt…

Solving the: UFC Heavyweight Division

Since winning the UFC Heavyweight title on May 14, 2016 at UFC 198, Stipe Miocic has defended the title two times. However, Miocic last fought on May 13, 2017 at UFC 211 and is not scheduled to fight again this year. That’s a problem, especially considering the UFC Heavyweight division has been moving at a…

UFC Fight Night 118: Those seeking to avoid pink slips

The UFC returns to action on October 21, 2017 in Gdańsk, Poland. Headlining the event, is Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone against Darren Till. It should be a fun and entertaining striking contest and I feel as if this fight isn’t getting enough love because Till is relatively unknown. As much as people clamor over how rankings don’t matter,…

UFC 204: Survivor Game

Since I missed last week, I will be making two locks of the days and two upsets of the day. My Streak of 29 hangs in the balance! Anyways, if you don’t know what this post is all about, I’ll briefly fill you in. I can only select one fighter to be my lock of the…

UFC Fight Night 96: Survivor Game (Missed)

Picking Cyborg Santos was almost criminal, but o well. Paul Felder as my upset pick had no confidence in it, as you could of told by my demeanor. As for this week of Survivor, I missed, so next week I’ll be forced to make two lock of the days and upset of the days. My…

UFC Fight Night 95: Survivor Game

So I wrote this last week “Once again, I nailed my lock of the day and flaked hard on the upset of the day.” I think this applies to picking Belal Muhhammad as my lock and Uriah Hall as my underdog. Anyways, if you don’t know what this post is all about, I’ll briefly fill you…
