Dominick Cruz Wants Takeya Mizugaki, But Needs Warm-Up Fight

Takeya Mizugaki

The last time that Dominick Cruz stepped foot inside the Octagon was 2011. Three years ago. Let that sink in for a second because three years is a long time, but in mixed martial arts? That is an eternity. Cruz […]


Cub Swanson Not the Right Fight For Chan Sung Jung

Chan Sung Jung

The zombie is coming — at least we can all hope. Right now, the Featherweight division is a shark tank. The top-five guys in the division are all animals and have been putting on incredible performance after incredible performance. There […]


Can Chris Weidman Beat Lyoto Machida’s Mental Game?

Lyoto Machida

The first time that I was honestly afraid of Lyoto Machida was right after Jon Jones choked him out cold. I know that sounds a little strange but let me explain. Many of you who saw that fight saw a […]


UFC: Josh Barnett vs. Junior dos Santos a Fight Worth Seeing

Josh Barnett

Josh Barnett has turned out to be one of my favorite fighters of all time. I know I’m in that wagon with a bunch of other people, but you have to admire a pudgy pasty dude who goes into a […]


Ben Henderson Proves He Fights Anyone By Battling Rafael dos Anjos

Ben Henderson

One of the things that legitimately made me angry about the flack against Ben Henderson was the way that fans thought he wasn’t that good. Number one, the guy was champion of what I believe is the toughest weight class […]

Frank Mir Should Get One More Fight

Frank Mir has had an historic career with the UFC. He was one of the first Heavyweights to really bring grappling to the Octagon, he broke Tim Sylvia’s arm, and oh, he had those amazing battles with Minotauro Nogueira. Wait, he […]


Jeremy Stephens Needs to Dominate Cub Swanson for Title Shot

Jeremy Stephens

Jeremy Stephens has seriously turned a corner in his mixed martial arts career. He went from a middle of the pack lightweight to a legitimate contender at Featherweight. Even at Lightweight, Stephens fought the best of the best. He faced […]


Jose Aldo Will Face a Better Chad Mendes

Jose Aldo

I, for one, want the rivalry to ignite between Team Alpha Male and Nova Uniao. Just to summarize, ever since T.J. Dillashaw laid a four-round beating on Renan Barao, they have been celebrating the fact that they finally got one […]


Ryan Bader vs. Anthony Johnson Makes Too Much Sense

Ryan Bader

Every single time that Ryan Bader steps into the octagon, he improves. Ever since Lyoto Machida punched his chin into the back of his head, he has gotten infinitely better. He now fights smarter, and looks to end the fight […]


Lyoto Machida Should Scare Chris Weidman

Lyoto Machida

Usually when I hear fights announced I get seriously excited. If it’s a great fight, it’s like getting a new gift. I should stress the word “usually,” because when I hear that Lyoto Machida is fighting I get really nervous. […]


A Mentally Prepared Rory MacDonald is a Scary Thing

Rory MacDonald

I know that the world kind of likes to give Rory MacDonald a hard time. I mean, apart from the fact that he looks, and kind of acts, like a serial killer. He is an exquisite dresser, never really smiles […]
