  2. Michael Bisping ethers Tim Kennedy

    If Michael Bisping ever quits fighting, he could certainly ghostwrite some diss tracks for a few rappers out there.  I used to absolutely despise Bisping, but over the years he has won me over.  He even has me rooting for him against the ‘American Hero’ Tim Kennedy.  Is that un-American of me?  Bisping’s smack talk is the best in the business.  Check out what he wrote for Yahoo Sports.

    via Yahoo Sports:

    "Every fighter – myself included – says things like “this is my best camp ever” all the time but, having spent many sleepless nights thinking perhaps I’d never be in camp for a fight ever again, I genuinely feel like I’m in the greatest camp of my life right now. I don’t know if the break recharged my love of the gym or I’m just that excited to be back doing what I love, but I am flying through this camp and can’t wait to get to Quebec City, Canada to make short work of Tim Kennedy on April 16.

  3. Happy St.Patrick’s Day - The Conor McGregor Documentary

    image

    In honor of St.Patrick’s Day, here is an MMA documentary about Conor McGregor’s preparation for his 2nd UFC fight against Max Holloway.  The self proclaimed ‘King of Dublin’ is one of the most hyped fighters on the UFC has ever seen.  At first I was skeptical of the Notorious one, I thought he was the UFC’s attempt to target the Hipster market, but now I am singing a different tune.  Watching his insane highlight reel, and dissecting his first two UFC fights, I believe he is the real deal.  Can this Irish bloke challenge the champ, Jose Aldo?  We will see very soon.  So, crack open a pint of Guiness, take a shot of Jameson, and enjoy this documentary.  Happy St.Patty’s Day MMA nerds!

  5. Gina Carano vs. Ronda Rousey?

    There is a rumor going around that the UFC is talking to Gina Carano about a possible super fight with Ronda Rousey. Joe Rogan recently hinted that there is huge news regarding the Women’s division in the UFC, and with Cyborg having upcoming fights booked, this rumor is totally feasible.

    If true, will Carano pull a Bob Sapp and lose to Rousey within the 1st minute? Or will Carano actually return her glory days and put on a show?

     

  6. Vitor out, Lyoto in for UFC 173

    Vitor Belfort is the Mase of MMA. He for sure isn’t practicing what he is preaching. Just a couple months ago, he said he would fight without TRT if need be. Well they banned TRT yesterday and now Belfort can’t show up for work. Forget this juicehead!

    Will the Machida era begin in May?

     

  7. TRT banned from UFC

    RIP TRT.  The highly debated topic of Testosterone Replacement Therapy in the UFC has been finally been put to rest.  Yesterday, Nevada State Athletic Commission banned TRT from their state.  Shortly after, Dana White stated that the UFC would follow suit.  This comes off the heels of riveting article on TRT by ESPN which essentially stated that TRT was legal cheating and dangerous for the sport.

    So, this means Vitor Belfort, the poster boy for TRT, will not be allowed to use it for his title fight against Chris Weidman.  Will he cycle it illegally in his home camp of Flordia (Blackzilians)?  It will be interesting to see how his body looks like at the weigh-ins for UFC 173.  Will he look like a prime WWE Rock or will he look like the Vitor that fought Anderson Silva at UFC 126, where he got knocked out by a front kicked to the face?

    I for one applaud the NSAC for banning TRT and subsequently eliminating it from the UFC completely.  The lines were getting way too blurry.  It sounded like you could go to a doctor, tell them you were feeling lethargic and get a TRT script.  It was comparable to obtaining a Weed card in Cali.  Let’s let these warriors in the UFC fight on an even playing field now.  If you really need synthetic testosterone to fight, then you probably shouldn’t be competing in MMA.  Plain and simple!

     

  8. Cyborg willing to drop to 135 for Rousey fight

    The baddest woman on the planet, Cris Cyborg Santos recently told AXS TV that she is down to make the cut to 135 pounds to fight Ronda Rousey.  AND she emphatically stated that she will retire Ronda Rousey like she did Gina Carano.  Oh snap.  As we all know, Rousey is the hottest fighter in all of MMA right now, man or woman.  Damn, even Jon Jones is jealous.  She has the full support from UFC and is already one of the highest paid athletes in all of MMA.  Smart move by Cyborg to call her out now, you gotta strike while the iron’s hot.  Just the other week, Cyborg’s manager, Tito Ortiz stepped down from his position.  This seemingly opened the door for a Cyborg/Rousey fight due to the fact that Dana White and Tito hate each other with a passion.  Let’s see how this plays out… Check out what Cyborg said to AXS TV.

    "In reference to Ronda’s statement that I am looking for a payday so that I can retire, you’re right, I am looking for a payday to retire you like I did Gina Carano. But to show it’s not only about money, I challenge you to a fight - winner takes all. Or better yet let’s fight for FREE. ANYTIME! ANYWHERE! Ask your daddy Dana to make it happen.

    My English is not that great, so sorry if I was misunderstood. I didn’t literally mean I would die if I made 135. What I meant was that my doctor recommended that I did not fight the rest of my career at 135, which is what the UFC wanted.

    You have fought 154 in the Olympics and 145 in MMA. You can meet me at 140 easier than for me to go down to 135. The only reason you want the fight at 135 is because you feel that is your only chance because you hope the weight cut will affect me. You guys say I’m irrelevant, yet watch my highlights. The true MMA fans not only know me, but know I’m the best. Sad that you give the true MMA fans no recognition by saying that they don’t matter.
    I’m currently training to fight at 145 on March 28 and in early May. My team has hired a medical doctor to help me make 135. I plan to challenge and win the Invicta 135 Championship in the summer and challenge you, champion to champion, for your 135 belt in December.

    Now I know critics will say “I thought you said you would die if you made 135.” All I’m promising is that I will give 100 percent to try to get to 135 to make this plan happen. If I do, I will still listen to my doctor’s advice and fight no more than three times at 135: first to win the Invicta belt, the second time to kick your ass and the third time to kick your ass again so that the world can see it wasn’t luck. You can even have me tested every week up to the fight. That way you will not have an excuse after I kick your ass.”

  10. The Fart heard around the World #UFC168

    The biggest story from UFC 168 outside of Anderson Silva breaking his leg was about a certaing passing of gas.  John ‘Doomsday’ Howard farted on live television last night during the UFC 168 prelims.  It had me giggling like a school girl the whole night.  Here’s the video:
