UFC welterweight contender, Tyron Woodley fires back at Lombard after continued attacks on his character. Of the many interesting fights to be made in the UFC's welterweight division, Tyron Woodley vs. Hector Lombard is the one that is already creating buzz, despite the fact that Lombard will be meeting up with Josh Burkman at UFC 182 and Woodley is booked to fight Kelvin Gastelum at UFC 183. Both men share ties with American Top Team, so when Hector called Tyron out several weeks back and then 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 >>

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 >>
