The Old School MMA Review returns with a huge milestone from the SEG UFC era - the Ultimate Ultimate '96! The Fight Nerd and Zane Simon are back with more useless trivia and self-deprecating humor to educate and ridicule the past of our beloved sport. Bringing you the best of the best (or whoever was available) from the past events, this epic tournament (also known as UFC 11.5) took place on December 7, 1996 in Alabama, and marked the end of an era for the company, as this event was their final one-night eight-man tournament. After watching this event, the reasons for doing this became painfully obvious. Featuring the return of stars like Ken Shamrock, Don Frye, Gary Goodridge, and Tank Abbott, along with Kimo Leopoldo, Brian Johnston, Cal Worsham, and Paul Varelans, this show is a high point in terms of talent, but matchmaking... well, you will see. Huge slams, big brawls, high emotions, and more in this opening round of the tournament and the first part of our review! Don't forg watch video >>

MMA legend Frank Shamrock spoke with The Fight Nerd this week to talk about his new show on Spike TV, changes in Bellator MMA, current events, and some MMA history! In the first part of this interview, Frank talks about his new show on Spike TV "Gym Rescue", which features him and Randy Couture traveling around the US and fixing rundown and failing gyms that need a shove in the right direction. Frank explains what the biggest challenge of working with these businesses were, if there were any bad traits that were common through all of the facilities and what other gym owners should be aware of with their own businesses, and what the future plans are for this three-episode mini-series. We also look back to another documentary that aired on Spike TV last year, "Frank Shamrock: Bound by Blood", which featured the reconciliation between Frank and his brother, Ken Shamrock. Frank explains how his relationship has changed since then, if the two are still communicating today, and whether or watch video >>

In part two of this interview, Tito gives us his thoughts on the UFC's idea of giving uniforms to their fighters, if he has any plans to return to TNA Wrestling and whether or not he thinks that TNA will survive if Spike TV does not renew their contract, and how he squares up against Bellator MMA LHW champ Emanuel Newton.

The Fight Nerd had a chance to interview Bellator MMA lightweight contender, Michael Chandler, at a recent press event in NYC, where we talked about fighting, fighting, and more fighting! Chandler updates us on his back injury and when fans will see him back in the cage again, and tells us that he wants to fight Will Brooks again under better circumstances for another shot at the belt. The former champ also talks about if Brooks surprised him at all in their title fight, and if he watched the fight again yet. The big news from this interview is that Chandler is not as interested in fighting Eddie Alvarez as much right now, and wants the rematch with Brooks more - "Losing the close split-decision to Alvarez doesn't sting as bad as losing to Will Brooks." Chandler says he still wants Eddie, but since no one knows what is up with his contract - including Chandler. watch video >>

The Fight Nerd had a chance to interview Bellator MMA lightweight contender, Michael Chandler, at a recent press event in NYC.

The Fight Nerd had a chance to talk with Quinton Jackson at a recent Bellator MMA press event at Dave & Buster's in New York City, and he had plenty to say in typical Rampage fashion. In the second part of this interview, we discuss Rampage's short-lived career in TNA Wrestling and why we did not see much of him there (or ever see him actually wrestle). A very sleepy Jackson also talks about his continuing plans to get in the ring and pro wrestle, what happened with his "Street Soldier" comic and what he wants to do with it, how he feels about his portrayal on his Spike TV reality show "#Rampage4Real", and the general multi-platform plan that Viacom had for Rampage when he first signed the deal with the company and how it has not panned out much since then. If you want to check out Rampage's comic, you can get the special edition of Street Soldier (with the first four issues of the book) at this link here for $6 http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00IP79LHI/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp= watch video >>

The Fight Nerd spoke with Tito Ortiz at a Bellator MMA Press Event in NYC, and gave us his thoughts on a variety of topics in the fight world. In part one of this two-part interview, "The People's Champ" gives us a little insight on his lawsuit with John Ibarra (as much as he is allowed to tell us without getting himself into any trouble), and talks about his comeback fight against Alexander Shlemenko and the negative criticism he took while fighting a natural middleweight in a light-heavyweight bout. Ortiz also tells us that he still wants to fight Rampage and that he thinks Rampage definitively beat King Mo in their match at Bellator 120, and why he has zero interest in fighting King Mo. Plus, Tito talks about Bjorn Rebney's departure from the promotion and what he hopes Scott Coker will do to make Bellator a better place for fans and fighters alike, and who he would like to see Bellator pick up to add to their growing roster. watch video >>
