  • MMA Quick Hits 4/12/13: Uriah Hall getting an immediate title shot, Melendez will prove he’s #1

    UFC President Dana White spoke with USA Today Sports about overnight sensation, Uriah Hall. “Every guy Uriah fought wound up in the hospital. The first fight to get into the house, he breaks the kid’s arm. Then he knocks out Adam Cella with an incredible spinning high kick, then he knocks out Bubba McDaniel and then Dylan Andrews had a broken nose. That’s never happened in the history of ‘TUF.’ We do have to wait and see, but Uriah does have a lot of experience. And if you look at his losses, one was to Chris Weidman, who’s fighting Anderson Silva in July for the title, and his other loss was to Costa Philippou, who is also legit. No guy has come off any season of ‘The Ultimate Fighter’ looking as nasty as this guy has. People are on my Twitter saying, Read More »

  • MMA Quick Hits 4/3/13: Nick Diaz retired, Rashad Evans could still drop to Middleweight

    On Tuesday’s “UFC Tonight” on Fuel TV, Ariel Helwani said Nick Diaz’s legal representative, Jonathan Tweedale, confirmed that Diaz is determined to stay retired this time around unless he gets a fight with Georges St-Pierre or Anderson Silva. “As for Nick Diaz and his fighting future, I asked Tweedale that question, and he said, ‘Right now, he’s retired, unless he gets a rematch with Georges St-Pierre or the big Anderson Silva fight.’ Apparently if he doesn’t get those fights, he is going to remain retired.” Yeah, I don’t see either of those fights happening so I guess the older Diaz brother will stay shelved this time. Of course, this is like the third retirement from MMA competition so who really Read More »

  • MMA Quick Hits 4/1/13: Silva says he could fight Jones this November, GSP vs Silva would be GSP’s final fight

    UFC Middleweight Champion Anderson Silva talked to Brazilian site about potential superfights against Jon Jones and Georges St-Pierre. On Jones bout on UFC’s 20-year-anniversary in November: “Look…If I live until then…(laughs). But I think so. Anything can happen. But I think it’s possible to happen, yes. I have to train, you know, to make a great show for the fans.” On Georges St-Pierre: “I did not see his last fight, but I think [he is] a great strategist. Fight’s within the rules. It is nothing too abnormal. He’s a complete guy, but he struggles with the very rule of the sport. He knows how Read More »

  • UFC Fight Night: Miocic vs. Hunt preview

    Last weekend belonged to boxing, this weekend the UFC steps front and center with another Fight Night card, this time heading to Australia for an event headlined by two heavyweight contenders. Fight fans doing some sportsbook online betting this Saturday will want to keep a close eye on these three bouts: Stipe Miocic (-238) vs. Mark Hunt (+178) Hunt will have the support of the home crowd, hailing from neighboring New Zealand, but Miocic is the deserving favorite in this heavyweight main event. He’s coming off a decision loss to Junior dos Santos and has struggled against longer fighters, falling to 7-footer Stefan Struve back in 2012. This time around, he has a six-inch reach advantage on Hunt, who is just 5-foot-10 and weighs in a stocky 262 pounds. Hunt has also been punished by longer opponents, losing to Fabrício Werdum and Junior dos Santos recently, and must end this one quick to avoid being dragged into the deeper rounds. Brad Tavares (-160) vs. Robert Whittaker (+138) Tavares added a resume win with a victory over Nate Marquardt last time out, improving to 13-3 following back-to-back losses. He has excellent defense and is a tough man to touch, going the distance in eight of his last nine fights. That’s not to say he can’t be KO’d. Tavares was finished by Tim Boetsch last August and faces KO power in Whittaker, who has scored victories by way of knockout in two of his last three wins. The one knock against the underdog here that those doing some sportsbook online betting should know is that he doesn’t quite tip the scales since moving up to middleweight. Anthony Perosh (-160) vs. Sean O’Connell (+130) O’Connell has shown he has a steady chin with two Fight of the Night honors in his last two trips to the octagon. He’ll be trying to drag this fight into a brawl and look to land some crushing blows against Perosh, who hasn’t had the best defense. He was knocked out by Ryan Jimmo back in 2012 but since then he’s looked solid trading wins and losses. He will attempt to get this one to the mat and score a submission win, picking up 10 of his 15 career victories via tapout. Read More »

    Conor McGregor’s Ambitious Five-Year UFC Plan

    In the world of UFC, fighters are focused on the moment. McGregor will face the Siver Clash in UFC Fight Night. Moreover, UFC fighter Conor McGregor is making a name for himself by boldly setting his agenda. Known as “The Notorious,” he sticks to his goals since his 2013 debut. Not only is he a strong fighter, he’s also known for planning out his career moves well in advance hoping his planning will lead to stardom as well as a healthy bank account. This 26-year old fighter seems to have a knack for setting his agenda. He accurately predicted the outcome of his past two fights in addition to predicting his rise to UFC fame and has declared that the featherweight title is going to be his. While the first two of these predictions have already come true, it’s unknown but likely that the third one will as well. If McGregor can defeat Dennis Siver in their next match at Boston’s TD Garden, then he’ll be just one victory away from getting his shot at fame. McGregor will then be eligible to challenge current UFC champion Jose Aldo in a few months. McGregor certainly isn’t the only one focused on this potential fight. UFC President Dana White has already stated that the title fight could possibly take place in Las Vegas or even Ireland, McGregor’s hometown. While it’s unclear of what the future holds, this title is just one among many in the fighter’s five-year plan. McGregor’s already gone on record stating that he wants to end his career being known as the greatest of all time and make a lot of money in the process. Although this may seem like a long-term goal to most McGregor doesn’t see it that way. He states that he lives out his long-term goals every day and sees himself as the person he wants to be. It certainly seems like this approach has worked in the past. McGregor held two titles with the UK-based Cage Warrior before signing with the UFC. He’s expected to defeat Siver and is a strong contender to dethrone Aldo. One he’s completed this goal, McGregor has already set a number of other projects he’s eager to pursue. The most notable is the desire to face an opponent who has a strong wrestling base. After facing fans and other fighter’s criticism that he hasn’t faced an elite grappler, McGregor is eager to prove them wrong. And, if he does get the title, McGregor has already stated that his first goal is going to be to defend it against some of the top contenders like Frankie Edgar and Chad Mendes. These goals certainly aren’t the end though. After a few title defenses and creating a status as the worlds’ top 145-pounder, McGregor wants to move up a weight class and win the lightweight belt in that division. This achievement would make him only the third fighter in UFC history to capture titles in two divisions. Although it’s easy to see… Read More »

    Anderson Silva says Weidman didn’t ‘win’

    After the gruesome loss, Anderson Silva, who was a heavy favorite according to heading into the match, doesn’t believe Chris Weidman won the fight. In a recent interview with Globo, a Brazilian TV news station, Silva said “I believe that if you pay attention to the technical details, you will see that [what he did] was instinct, not something he trained to do.” He went on to say, “No, I don’t think [he should consider it a win]. It was an accident. I’m pretty sure I would have won the fight.” Silva recently also discussed his recovery. Immediately after his hour-long surgery for a fractured tibia and fibula in his left leg, he asked his doctors when he can start training. The doctor gave Silva a timeline of 3-6 months, and told Silva he could resume training as early as six months. The doctor also said he doesn’t believe that Silva’s age (38) would impact his recovery timeline. Silva is a rare athlete, and I wouldn’t be surprised if he has another fight by the start of 2015. It’d be quite the comeback story. Read More »

    Nick Diaz Retired? Don’t Be Scared, Homie!

    Nick Diaz Retired? Don’t Be Scared, Homie!

    When Georges “Rush” St Pierre out wrestled Nick “Stockton 209 Cesar Gracie Jiu-Jitsu what?” Diaz for five rounds to retain the UFC welterweight title I wasn’t at all surprised to hear him drop the R-bomb. After all, this is a fighter that is notoriously out-spoken and has never been particularly happy with fighting for a living. While immensely talented and gifted with the work ethic of a endurance athlete, he has never seemed happy with the fact he has to get into a cage and get beaten up for a paycheck. A part of me thinks that ol’ Nick would be happier collecting minimum wage at his local gas station rather than competing with the elite 170lbers on the planet. He could smoke weed whenever he liked.
