Does former UFC welterweight champion Johny Hendricks deserve an immediate trilogy fight against the man who lifted his title by the slimmest of margins at UFC 181, Robbie Lawler? Or should the UFC move forward with its original plan to give Rory MacDonald the next title shot? Those are the questions upon which the entire welterweight division will hinge in 2015 (Okay, and also whether former champion Georges St-Pierre returns). Proponents of an immediate Hendricks rematch note that after 10 rou read news >>

Without question, a featherweight title fight between champion Jose Aldo and Conor McGregor would be not only the biggest bout that could be made in the division, but also one of the biggest at any weight class. An Aldo-McGregor tilt could fill a stadium in Brazil or Ireland. As for whether McGregor is actually the most worthy contender at 145 pounds at the moment? Well, that's a different story. The answer appears to be "The Answer." Frankie Edgar, the former lightweight champion and the only U read news >>

Bloody Elbow concludes its preseason ranking of the nation's top 12 NCAA wrestling teams with the first place entry, Ohio State. A couple months ago I gave an interview with SB Nation's own Ohio State blog, Land Grant Holy Land, where I explained that I couldn't pick The Ohio State (TOSU) to win an NCAA wrestling championship in 2015. I reasoned that while TOSU had the most talent in the country, they didn't have enough proven winners on the NCAA level. Only two of their wrestlers have ever plac read news >>

Bloody Elbow continues its preseason ranking of the nation's top twelve NCAA wrestling programs. In this entry: second-ranked Minnesota. J Robinson, the head coach of the University of Minnesota's wrestling program, is a tough hombre. A couple seasons ago, he coached an entire season with only one knee. I'm not talking about one healthy knee; I literally mean he only had one knee joint. Something strange happened with a knee replacement operation, doctors removed Robinson's knee, but were unable read news >>

Bloody Elbow's preseason ranking of the nation's best twelve college wrestling continues with the number 3 entry: Cornell University. At this point in the rankings, I'm really splitting hairs. All the remaining teams are so loaded with talent that I dread putting one ahead of another. I won't lie, I want Cornell to win its first national wrestling championship in March; I think it would really shake up the wrestling establishment as Cornell would only be the first private, non-big conference sch read news >>

Bloody Elbow resumes its preseason ranking of the nation's best college wrestling teams. In this edition is number 5 Edinboro. Those unfamiliar with wrestling might find it strange that this somewhat obscure public school (I believe its official name is Edinboro University of Pennsylvania) a stone's throw from Lake Eerie is perennially one of college wrestling's very best teams. I actually write about Edinboro wrestling somewhat regularly; Some of their alumni have gone on to prominent MMA caree read news >>

Bloody Elbows preseason ranking of the nation's best 12 college wrestling teams continues with the 7th ranked Virginia Tech Hokies. Last season, at the NCAA tournament, Virginia Tech wrestling, led by head coach Kevin Dresser, turned the corner in their quest to become an elite NCAA wrestling team with staying power (and they did it primarily with products from the Commonwealth of Virginia). Dresser has developed a culture at Virginia Tech which produces wrestlers built for success at the NCAA t read news >>

In this edition of Bloody Elbow's preseason look at the nation's twelve best NCAA wrestling teams: the Penn State Nittany Lions. The prediction of four-time defending national champion Penn State finishing 8th at the 2015 NCAA tournament is largely influenced by various whispers about who won't be in PSU's lineup. These whispers still swirl in wrestling's rumor mill, unsettled by substantiation or refutation. One thing you learn following college wrestling long enough is that where there's smoke read news >>

Bloody Elbow's 'dirty dozen' preseason ranking of the nation's top twelve college wrestling programs continues with number 9, the Oklahoma State Cowboys. I'm not quite sure what to make of Oklahoma State's wrestling team this year. The most decorated program in wrestling history enters the 2014-2015 season with more questions than answers. I look at their roster and wonder to myself... How will defending national champ Alex Dieringer do up a weight at 165? What about super recruit Chance Marstel read news >>

Bloody Elbow continues its 'dirty dozen' preseason ranking of the nation's to NCAA wrestling teams. In today's edition, the number 10 Nebraska Cornhuskers. This past off season the University of Nebraska wrestling team and head coach Mark Manning suffered a major setback with the departure of ace assistant coach Tony Ersland, who became the head coach at Purdue. I guess Manning had trouble finding a new assistant who was any good, so he scraped the bottom of the barrel and hired some scrub named read news >>
