Don’t slouch at Mercedes for not being in the UFC. Bellator is the second largest MMA promotion company in the U.S. and has a lot of notority across...
Naturally, we’ve been very happy about the rise of Ronda Rousey and what it means to the future of women in UFC and just Mixed Martial Arts competition in general. But as much fun as it has been to talk about the successful, charismatic and, well, attractive Rousey, I’ve regrettably ignored what is an equally important – or maybe even arguably more important – story in Rousey’s...
Could the fight that enraptured an audience for almost all of 2011 actually happen in 2013? It looks like it. Dana White recently told MMAFighting.com that a fight has been offered to both “The King of PPV” Georges St. Pierre and Mr. 209 himself, Nick Diaz for UFC 158 March 16th in GSP’s home of [...]
Stop me if you heard this one before. I think I’ll wait until see Georges St-Pierre and Nick Diaz in the octagon together before I get excited again about this UFC fight.
