With Leather Book Club: Jason Elam’s ‘Monday Night Jihad’ Part 1

Via MondayNightJihad.com Way back in 2012, the With Leather Universe discovered Tank Abbott’s book, “BEFOR THERE WERE RULES: BAR BRAWLER” and I lost my mind to the point that I bought the book and recapped it. While we all wait for the second and third books to be released (They are both listed under the COMING SOON section, yay!) I found out that former NFL place kicker, Jason...

Rampage Jackson still doesn’t give a F*** about the UFC Hall of Fame

The problem with the UFC Hall of Fame is its inconsistencies. Tank Abbott and Don Frye should be in the HoF alongside Mark Coleman. Tito Ortiz, Jens Pulver and plenty others should be inducted, but politics are the name of the game. Stephan Bonnar is in the UFC HoF purely off of his guts in a single fight rather than his career as a whole. It’s obtuse and confusing, and Rampage...

'Fighting for a Generation: 20 Years of the UFC' is must see TV

On Tuesday night, FS1 premiered a new documentary - 'Fighting for a Generation: 20 Years of the UFC'.  It is a brilliant synopsis of the UFC, starting from the pre UFC days with Gracie home footage from their open gym challenges to where it is today as a billion dollar enterprise with over 35 events planned for next year. It introduces you to some of the lesser known names...

Joe Rogan counts down his top 8 heavyweight KOs with questionable memory

This is a good list, which shows off plenty of violence, but any heavyweight knockout list that doesn’t have Barry vs. Kongo is just woefully incomplete. There’s no JDS/Werdum, no Tank Abbott or Don Frye. It’s kind of a bummer illustrating the revisionist history that is continually rewritten by the UFC editors. And FOX, maybe. Regardless, it’s a video filled with eight heavyweight...

TVP: Cain conquers Brock On the Pond

I love this fight. It's my favorite UFC heavyweight bout of all-time, and I feel like it's also the most important fight in the history of the division.  It represents the modernization, the beginning of the reign of a new breed, if you will, of the division. Cain Velasquez eliminating Brock Lesnar on the Pond in Anaheim (kids these days call in the Honda Center) was essentially...

The philosophy of "The Spider"

In a day and age where fans are always waiting for the next incendiary comment to be made and athletes are wont to oblige, Anderson Silva has mastered the art of under-selling things. Rather than pouring gasoline onto fires with the things he says, the UFC middleweight champion throws just enough water on them to stifle their heat and power, but never enough to put them out completely...
