Alexis Davis vs Sarah Kaufman: One Winner, Two reasons, Third time lucky

Kudos to Sarah Kaufman, for accepting a fight that she had so little to gain from and much to lose should the worst happens.  There can only be one triumph in each fight and while each fighter goes into the Octagon hoping to win, usually a loss could still mean a gain in experience with a different styled fighter or at least positive publicity. Kaufman had been out of sight for...

WATCH: Demetrious Johnson wins with last-second submission

Next to losing there is only one thing in an MMA fight that sucks more--putting the power to decide who wins in the hands of the judges. How many times have we watched a fight and thought there was no way in hell one guy could lose, but somehow the judges--who must have been watching another fight--called it for the other guy. Frustrating as hell, right?Maybe Demetrious Johnson was...

WATCH: Thomas Almeida Gives Yves Jabouin a Good Ole Fashioned Beat Down At UFC 186

This is one clip I had to watch a few times in order to really appreciate. At first I thought, "WTF? The why in the world did the ref break it up at that point? Dudes looked like they were just trading blows. It was kind of cool actually." Then I watched it a couple of times and started to notice how Jabouin quit throwing back and was putting up the "please Hammer don't hurt me"...

UFC 186 is the worst PPV on paper

I wrote a blog earlier this month stating that the Floyd Mayweather vs Manny Pacquiao fight could be the last great pay-per-view event…  UFC 186, however, might be the lamest pay-per-view on paper in UFC history. The main event of UFC 186 features Demetrious “Mighty Mouse” Johnson vs. Kyoji Horiguchi.  Don’t worry readers if you haven’t heard of them, it’s only...

Luke Rockhold (pictured) may have entered Saturday’s scrap against Lyoto Machida as the fourth ranked UFC middleweight, but he likely left the cage as the division’s top contender.

Conor McGregor: I would kill Floyd Mayweather in 30 seconds

Floyd Mayweather, some would argue, is the best boxer in the world. Others have proclaimed him the greatest of all time. Still, he’s just a boxer.   Conor McGregor, on the other hand, is an entirely different animal. Literally. McGregor is the biggest thing going in UFC, and trains, in part, by studying the way different animals move and hunt their prey. He’s a terrifying...
