Bloody Elbow continues its preseason ranking of the twelve best college wrestling teams in the nation. In this entry: the University of Missouri, ranked sixth. The University of Missouri is one of college wrestling's best stories. When head coach Brian Smith took over the program in 1998, the Tigers had never even produced a Big 12 champion (keep in mind that by the time the Big 8 became the Big 12, only five member schools fielded wrestling teams). Since Smith has held the reigns, the Tigers ha 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 >>

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 >>

Bloody Elbow continues its 'dirty dozen' NCAA wrestling preseason ranking with the #12 team in the country, the Northwestern Wildcats. In this brave new world of extreme parity in college wrestling, the difference between 20th and 5th place in the nation may only be a dozen or so team points. Last year, the top two teams at the NCAA tournament finished with over 100 points, and any score over 50 points would earn a team at least sixth place. This year I predict that the winning team score will r read news >>

UFC 178 is a big deal. With names like Conor McGregor, Donald "Cowboy" Cerrone and Dominick Cruz on the marquee, the debut of Eddie Alvarez, and a flyweight title fight, it's the type of event that hearkens back to the glory days of utterly stacked events. Fans are excited in a way that they don't often get to be anymore, as there's a level of saturation with the UFC product that often makes following the fight game a joyless mulch of unknown names fighting in unknown places. That's not the case read news >>

In the final entry of the ranking of the 20 greatest wrestling matches between future MMA stars, Bloody Elbow takes a look back at the 2001 wrestle off between Matt Lindland and Dan Henderson. Dan Henderson and Matt Lindland picked a strange object of their athletic devotions. I’m not talking about MMA, I’m speaking of the almost universally misunderstood sport of Greco-Roman wrestling I can’t prove it with numbers or any other reliable evidence, but my experiences tell me that the vast number o read news >>

The presence of a sturdy chin, or lack thereof, always has and always will be predicated on a fighter's genealogical makeup. And since a chin can't be strengthened through hard work and dedication, those seemingly blessed with jaws of granite bring an attribute to the cage that many fighters can only dream of possessing. The opening portion of this two-part slideshow details the most rock-solid chins in MMA history—those that withstood countless beatings before ever giving into an embarrassing i read news >>
