Melvin Manhoef: Hit the off switch on Doug Marshall, and in the process, earns himself a Bellator middleweight title shot. 4. Thabiso Mchunu...

Myles Jury prefers patience over pouting, deeds over words

In a perfect world, Myles Jury would be fighting Nate Diaz this weekend with a chance to vault into the conversation for a title shot in 2015. But instead he's facing Takanori Gomi in Japan with little chance to move forward in the lightweight divisional rankings. Jury was offered a fight with Diaz a few months back, but the wayward Ultimate Fighter winner turned down the bout...

A Look Back At The Hidden Gems Of UFC 172

UFC 172 has come and gone. In its wake it leaves submissions, knockouts, back and forth brawls, and dominant performances by top level fighters. A fight card that, on paper, was not expected to blow anyone away, turned out to be well worth the price of admission. With Jon Jones defending his title for a seventh consecutive time, Anthony “Rumble” Johnson making a dramatic return...

What’s next for the 10 winners of UFC 172?

It also showed us that 10 is the perfect number for the amount of fights on a UFC card. Almost every division was represented (except for HW and WW) and the pace was steady. Beal got things started with one of the two...

MMAmania.com reports that Gomi has stated that he will give up alcohol if he is able to get a UFC lightweight title shot. That title shot is still longer away from Gomi than retirement...

Takanori Gomi defeats Isaac Vallie-Flag in a bloodbath

The Fireball Kid’s still got it. And by ‘it,’ I mean he can still throw a Hadouken with his left hand like it was 2004. Isaac Vallie-Flag put on one hell of a fight, and many say he was beating GOmi at one point, but I had it 29-28 at worst on my card. I could argue for a 30-27. Vallie-Flag did his best in staying active and moving through Gomi’s punches, but in the end,...
