Oh My God! It happened again! Only a few short weeks after Mousasi kneed Weidman into a baffling and controversial TKO win by apparently legal knees, after the bout was stopped because the referee thought the knees were illegal (what?), and after Miragliotta took all the heat for his apparent mistake, and all the discussion […]

In a recent post, I was rather dismissive of Vitor Belfort’s League of Legends: a special league that he proposed the UFC to create, where older Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) fighters past their physical prime can face each other under a modified rule set. While Belfort’s idea is not likely to ever come to fruition, […]

We’ve recently published an article related to the weight cutting issues in MMA, which have become a lot common since the introduction of the early weigh-in and the ban on intravenous (IV) re-hydration. I don’t want to continue beating a dead horse (where’s the referee to stop this beating?), but this issue deserves additional discussion in […]

It may be one of the most ubiquitous terms we encounter daily during informal, text-based communication: internet forums & message boards, social media, SMS and various other real-time text messaging apps.

Once again a big fight fell through due to weight cutting issues. This time it was Khabib Nurmagomedov vs. Tony Ferguson, a fight that everybody have been looking forward to for a long time. And once again the issue of weight-cutting comes up. There is enough criticism as it is against weight-cutting being very unhealthy […]

The new year forces to establish new goals, and we hope that 2017 will be overflowing with brilliant fights, unexpected decisions, and enthralling performances. It is well-known to the dedicated fans that Aldo, Nurmagomedov, and Woodley all hunger for a fight with Conor McGregor. But McGregor’s next opponent will not be the only one surprise of […]

As a recap, most “Fighter of the Year” awards on other sites are really “Breakout Fighter of the Year” awards in that fighters who win, were usually not top fighters in the beginning of the year, but became so by the end of the year. A fighter like this can and has won our FotY awards, […]
