GIFS of Doom: 'Semtex' detonates opponent at BAMMA 14

If you're a big fan of London KO artist Paul 'Semtex' Daley then I'm thinking that him getting a lifetime ban from the UFC due to some post-fight in cage shenanigans has turned out to be a blessing in disguise. It seems like Daley has had a fight just about every month since (15 since he was booted in May of 2010) so the more the merrier right? Especially when he...

UFC 167 St-Pierre vs. Hendricks- pros picks w/Dan Henderson, Tito Ortiz & Tyron Woodley

It’s been no secret that I’ve been picking Hendricks to beat GSP this weekend at the UFC’s 20th anniversary show. I think he’s hungry, naturally tough, and has knockout power the welterweight division hasn’t seen since Paul Daley. With that said, of course it’s difficult to pick against GSP. The guy is probably in some laboratory doing mechwarrior gymnastics. GSP’s...
