Fighters of the Week

Luke Irwin: 1. Donald Cerrone: No, Jim Miller isn’t elite any more, but a head kick TKO over a tough motherfucker like Miller in the main event is legit, and Cerrone is now on the fast track to a title shot. 2. Damon Jackson: Couldn’t have derailed the Leonard Garcia comeback train any more nastily […]

Inside International Fight Week and the UFC Fan Expo

Contributor: Josh Hall Last week I had the pleasure of joining my fellow Undercard staffers Taylor Engel and the always diabolical hater Earl Montclair in Las Vegas for International Fight Week.  Because we are not rich MMA bloggers, we passed on going to UFC 175 (ticket prices were insane) in lieu of attending Lion Fight […]

Fighters of the Week

Luke Irwin: 1. Saul Alvarez: See below. 2. Erislandy Lara: I had it 117-114 for Lara, but I’m not outraged, I figured he would outbox Alvarez, but it’s not a robbery. He should have, and more importantly, COULD HAVE, done more. He was more concerned with making his defense and footwork look great than scoring […]

Canelo vs. Lara Picks

Junior Middleweight Bout: Erislandy Lara (19-1-2) vs. Saul Alvarez (43-1-1) Luke Irwin: Gonna be some salty, salty folks after this one.  Lara is very, very underrated.  He’s only lost one fight and it was a scorecard so egregious that the judges were immediately suspended.  He’s fared better against mutal opponents, including a much better performance […]
