Fighters of the Week

Luke Irwin: 1. Donald Cerrone: No, Jim Miller isn’t elite any more, but a head kick TKO over a tough ************ like Miller in the main event is legit, and Cerrone is now on the fast track to a title shot. 2. Damon Jackson: Couldn’t have derailed the Leonard Garcia comeback train any more nastily than if he had thrown a 2×4 onto the rails. First round, tap out, that’s all...

Greg Jackson, the sport killer
