Jim Ross has posted his latest blog entry online. Check out the highlights: On UFC production values: “I have issues with how UFC mic’s their live audience as I feel that the announcers should have to work harder and have to have a more distinct tone and infliction at the loudest moments of the live event. That did not occur. On entrances that are hot, like GSP and Diaz, there is really nothing that any announcers can say that exceeds the organic and real feel of what the audience is providing the PPV customer…as long as the audience is mic’ed well. So, in my view, those two entrances in particular would have been perfect examples where the broadcast team would have simply sit back and allowed the viewer to soak in the moment. By the way, Mike Goldberg and Joe Rogan did stellar work on their marathon assignment Saturday night which started late Saturday afternoon, if not much earlier, and finishing well after midnight Saturday night. No one should overlook how hard those two work du...

"If not, I'll fly to your house, hire a ref and we can do something about it." There will be no need. Georges St-Pierre and, more importantly, UFC president Dana White, agreed...

UFC 158: St-Pierre, Hendricks shine

Georges St-Pierre probably didn't give Nick Diaz the worst beating he's ever seen as promised. But it was still a victory -- and an overwhelming one at that -- as St-Pierre defended the welterweight title he's held since 2008 with a unanimous decision (50-45 on all three cards) at UFC 158 early Sunday morning. "He did a great job promoting the fight," St-Pierre...

GSP Post Fight Interview

How much of an instigator is Ariel Helwani? Right off the bat he tells GSP that Diaz says he wants an immediate rematch and that he hits like a girl.  Which is correct, Nick did say that, but out of context it sounds much more insulting than how Nick meant it in my opinion.  GSP did what he needed to do to win this fight against a very dangerous opponent but he did not look as...
