Further appreciation and apoplexy for the occasion or PRIDE FC’s 17-year anniversary. It's like they say: you can never have too many scattered thoughts about PRIDE Fighting Championships. The PRIDE referees were awful. I found them far more obnoxious than the average referee. Yuji Shimada, you don't have to point at fighters and shout "Give up?!" whenever their opponents begin to set up a submission. There's something in place for that, it's called a tap-out. Please get the fuck out of the way read news >>

Rhapsodizing, criticizing (and feelings, maaan!) to mark both the seventeen-year anniversary of PRIDE FC’s first event, and the seven-year anniversary of the organization’s final, irrevocable close. Seventeen years ago this month, under the Tokyo Dome, PRIDE FC held its inaugural event. Rickson Gracie and pro-wrestling hero Nobuhiko Takada fought at the top of a card only six bouts long, featuring fighters with a cumulative record of 63-21-3, a figure that drops to a much more modest 43-19-2 if read news >>

Bobby Lashley has now won five in a row, including two under the Bellator banner in the past six weeks. His most recent victory, a technical knockout finish over jacked British import Karl Etherington, was a bit of a head scratcher, however, as the previously undefeated "Wrecking Machine" appeared to trip over his own two feet. Then once he flopped to the floor, he made no effort to get up or scramble, and just covered up while the part-time pro wrestler cracked his coconut. Bizarre. See who els read news >>

Stefan Struve is "not that impressed" by UFC on FOX 13 opponent Alistair Overeem. Probably because the embattled Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) heavyweight is on the chopping block ahead of their 265-pound tilt on Dec. 13, 2014 inside U.S. Airways Center in Phoenix, Arizona, following a dismal 2-3 run inside the Octagon. But "sometimes you fall down," Overeem told E. Spencer Kyte (via UFC.com): "You put in the work and you come back. I'm 34 years old. If I would be injured, yes, maybe, but read news >>

What you see is what you get with Mark Hunt. The storied heavyweight slugger brings a straightforward approach to his action inside the Octagon, and the New Zealand native never makes any bones about what he's showing up to do. The former K-1 World Grand Prix champion's mission once the cage door closes is to settle the opposition in whatever fashion presents itself, and it's a task he's accomplished time and time again—often in brutal fashion. Knocking grown men unconscious is just what Hunt do read news >>
