Olympic gold medalist Henry Cejudo makes his debut, and fan favorite Lorenz Larkin spice up the undercard for a PPV that desperately needs it at UFC 177. Back to the grind. What are the chances Dana White pulls a judge from his duties on American soil? Slim. Especially since even Dana has admitted to he went over the line.
Still, relieving a judge of his/her duties is not like punching a guy who just elbowed you in the back of the head or something. It requires foresight, and cunning. Dana didn' read news >>
Hello. Come in, I'm glad you came. Sit down. Can I get you something to drink? Coffee, distilled water, perhaps something stronger, Nos Active, whiskey?
Great, that's great. But let's get down to brass tacks now. I called you in today because I want to level with you. I want to be honest. You do appreciate honesty, don't you? Honest discussions. They make the world go around, in my opinion.
Today's honest discussion is about UFC 177. That's right, the one going on this Saturday in Sacramento. We read news >>
Lots of sudden violence occurred at UFC Fight Night in Oklahoma including a big win for Rafael dos Anjos over Benson Henderson. What did we learn in retrospect?
Thanks for the awful advice. Benson Henderson by Decision? Seriously? dos Anjos straight gilded him and his toothpick, Khal Drogo style. What are you looking at me for? I didn't pick Henderson.
Oh. No wonder your writing suddenly became less erratic, and disorganized.
Kudos to Phil for taking over. Thankfully for BE, we'll get to see mor read news >>
Tangibles vs intangibles- two struggling contenders battle to stay afloat in the tumult of the Lightweight division
You're still here
Um. Indeed. David asked me to help out with this one, too.
Get on with it, then. Tell me the stakes. Benson Henderson is, depending on who you ask, either a fluke merchant or one of the very best lightweight mixed martial artists ever. The former lightweight champion's reign was one of the longest in history... but it largely consisted of extremely close decisions read news >>
Coming off an uninspired performance against Tim Kennedy, perennial Middleweight contender Michael Bisping tries to right the ship against explosive striker Cung Le
Hey! Where's David?
I don't know what you're talking about. There are no significant changes here.
I can see your name under the title. No shady behaviour here, sir.
You spelled "behavior" wrong. Brit. Ah. Drat. Well, David was called away last minute. So I briefly stole his job.
Damn. OK. Explain the stakes to me. Michael Bisping is read news >>
Lots and lots of prospects, movie talk, and curious analogies take up your precious time with today's analysis of tomorrow's action Tulsa, Oklahoma. Welterweight Mike Pyle vs. Jordan Mein
Pyle is a much better fighter than he is an actor. Sure you've heard and seen this reference a thousand times already, but it's worth noting. Also worth noting is that he's still a thousand times more convincing than Ronda Rousey, who is just flat out dreadful in Expendables 3. There's nothing wrong with not be read news >>
Dong Hyun Kim and Tyron Woodley are the big names on a main card that is otherwise stacked with TUF products. Expect some decent action regardless, this weekend in Macau for Bisping vs. Le. Welterweight Dong Hyun Kim vs. Tyron Woodley
Which Tyron should we expect to show up? The Koscheck one or the Shields one?
Woodley has settled into a rhythm that's halfway between both. He's still a quality WW, and the kind of guy who could crack an elephant skull with that right hand.
Speaking of Koscheck, w read news >>
Lots and lots fighters from Mongola to Russia look to make some noise in their divisions for the undercard in Macau this weekend. Wait...I see a bunch of Asian fighters. I thought all Asian fighters were maltrained, underpaid, and endangered in North America? Well, Japanese MMA has its own sordid history. Between the UFC expanding and acquiring much of the talent that once made Japan of mecca of MMA, and said acquisition exaggerating the problems that already existed (lack of quality gyms, or a read news >>

It's another mixed martial arts (MMA) double-header this Saturday (Aug. 23, 2014) when Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) hits both Macau, China, and Tulsa, Okla., fo read news >>
Not a whole lot of high profile matchups for the undercard in Oklahoma, but some TUF projects and returning TUF projects form a preliminary card that should be kind of interesting. Is there anything you wanted to talk about before discussing some MMA undercard action that I know readers are dying to engage in?
Not really. I've been trying to get into stoner rock that isn't Kyuss, and I can think of no other genre that gets more repetitious. Still, I enjoyed this Greenleaf gem, and Truckfighters read news >>
This Saturday, the UFC double-dips again with two cards in the same 24 hours. The marathon begins on the other side of the world from Zuffa HQ, when UFC Fight Night 48 goes down in Macau, China. It airs entirely on UFC Fight Pass, the company's subscription streaming service. Earlier this summer, UFC prez Dana White indicated that international Fight Pass cards are not "for" American fans. This is one of those cards, replete with a 9 a.m. ET start time and a large helping of anonymous Chinese fi read news >>
