ARREOLA'S LAST STAND

ARREOLA'S LAST STAND

I have to say, there was a lot to like about Cris Arreola when he first came onto the scene.  I don't just mean as a neutral writer, but as an actual fan.  Her had my name, close to my height, and he was a blown-up light heavyweight from Los Angeles, who couldn't put the fork down.  S...

The Shockwaves of UFC 196

The Shockwaves of UFC 196

Last year was a year of upsets, and it appears the trend will continue into 2016. It took me a few days to recover from the shocking results of UFC 196 enough to write about it unemotionally. All of my expectations were blown out of the water in dram...

Judges or Scoring? Both Are to Blame

Judges or Scoring? Both Are to Blame

In the aftermath of the controversial Lawler/Condit decision in UFC 195, there has been a renewed debate about the viability of the 10-Point Must Scoring System used in boxing and MMA. It’s essential to acknowledge that all scoring systems are flawed...

Carlos Condit Robbed in UFC 195

Immediate Holm-Rousey Rematch: A Bad Idea

 

After Holly Holm’s astounding victory over Ronda Rousey in UFC 193 - which I’m proud to say I predicted - there are clamors for an immediate rematch. Dana White’s close relationship with Ronda makes it nearly impossible for him to accept the emphati...

Do Good Fighters Come From Wealth, Or Poverty?

The answer is simple, and while most people believe that it doesn't matter, and that it depends on how hungry the person is, there is a trend.

Imagine this, you are born in a lower class family, nothing ha...

Hail Holly!

Hail Holly!

There are so many words that come to mind when I think of Holly Holm, but undoubtedly the most appropriate is “classy.” I was one of the few who predicted an upset in her November 14th UFC fight with super star Ronda Rousey. When I posted Team Holm’s...
