Fighters of the Week

  Luke Irwin:   1. Chris Weidman: After withstanding the best of what Vitor Belfort had to offer on the feet, Weidman shook it off, got the fight to the floor and battered Belfort until the ref waved it off and he had retained his belt. 2. Daniel Cormier: Not unlike Chumbawumba, Cormier got knocked […]

The MMA Malapropism Podcast with Dan Galvan

After UFC 187, I had the privilege of co-hosting Dan Galvan’s MMA Malapropism podcast.  We broke down the card right after it went off the air, as well as touching on KSW, OneFC, and went off-topic and talked about the late-night talk show landscape.

Fighters of the Week

  1. Frankie Edgar: He kicked in the door, waved the .44, and is now probably next in line for a title shot and handed Urijah Faber his first-ever non-title loss. 2. Roman Gonzalez: The HBO audience got its first taste of Gonzalez, and it was an excellent one. The hard-hitting flyweight decimated veteran Edgar […]

Fighters of the Week

  1. Saul Alvarez: Holy shit, Canelo. Yowza. 2. Josh Barnett: Is still the heavyweight kingpin of Metamoris and keeps nailing awesome submissions. At Metamoris 6, Barnett tapped out Ryron Gracie with a toehold to keep catch wrestling at the top of the mountain. 3. Stipe Miocic: Battered Mark Hunt about two and a half […]

Fighters of the Week

  1. Floyd Mayweather Jr.: It finally happened, it was fine, better than I thought it would be, and it was over. A victory for Mayweather, but, aside from one round where he actually was the aggressor (the eleventh), it was more of the same. 2. Raymundo Beltran: Beltran became a two-tme WBO World lightweight […]
