UFC 181 will be looked back upon for a number of high-profile things. Chief among them, though, is the potential for Saturday's event to act as a launching pad for any number of talents who secured memorable wins. The card was downright stacked but somehow managed to exceed expectations. Various fighters made returns from injury or other issues and scored emphatic victories. Younger fighters seized the moment with highlight wins. Much of how this card is viewed down the road will depend on where read news >>

Any given combat sports organization is built upon its champions, and the UFC is no different. A lengthy tenure as a division's top dog can immortalize a fighter, as we have seen with Georges St-Pierre and Anderson Silva. A brief reign, however, can leave a fighter in a position no different than any other lifelong contender, as we have seen with Ricco Rodriguez and Evan Tanner. The name of the title game is longevity and for the first time in a long while, the UFC's belts are held by a blend of 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's preseason ranking of the top 12 teams in college wrestling presents its fourth-ranked team: the Iowa Hawkeyes. With our number 4 entry in these rankings, we finally get to the teams with a very good shot at winning a national championship. I have a hard time believing a team as stacked as the 2014-15 Iowa Hawkeyes would be the number 4 team in the country, yet here we are. This team returns four All Americans, two with very good shots at winning national titles. Seniors Mike Evans 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 >>
