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 […]
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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

On this episode of the Undercard Supercast, we hand out awards from a busy weekend in combat sports, talk UFC 176 cancellation and what it means, look ahead for our victors, give our predictions on Canelo-Lara and more!
Luke Irwin: 1. Chris Weidman: Went five rounds for the first time in his career and became one of the only men to go toe-to-toe with Lyoto Machida and live to tell about it, gaining a warrior credibility that Jon Jones earned against Alexander Gustafsson. He’s here to stay. 2. Ronda Rousey: Thanks, Alexis. Great […]
