Jose Aldo’s victory at UFC 169 seems to have resurrected the talk of a super fight between ‘Scarface’ and 155lb. boss Anthony ‘Showtime’ Pettis. The two had originally been paired before Pettis was the champ at UFC 163. Injury would eventually force the former WEC LW title holder from competing for Aldo’s FW strap. Much has been said in the time since about who would win; Aldo with his crisp striking and timing, or Pettis with his adverse striking and ‘wild card’...

Performance is often overlooked on UFC cards for finishes and exciting fights, but I think that needs to change. The "Performance of the Night" poll is designed to show who fans think was the star performer after every UFC event. Last weeks UFC on Fox 10 "Performance of the Night" winner was Donald Cerrone. "Cowboy" topped the poll with 42% for his first round knockout of Adriano Martins. Second in the vote was Alex "Bruce Leeroy" Caceres. Caceres took 24% of the poll for his third round submission over previously...

Urijah Faber and Renan Barao will do battle at Saturday’s UFC 169 main event. The stakes are high as they are competing for the Bantamweight championship, while vacated former boss Dominick Cruz looks on from the sidelines. The bout will be the second meeting between the two 135lb. monsters, and both men look to be in their prime. For me, Faber had the best 2013 in MMA; he fought, won and finished more impressively in his four outings and has never looked better. His win against Michael MacDonald showed...

The UFC is well known for providing its fighters with three bonuses in every post-fight press conference after an event. "Fight of the Night", "Submission of the Night" and "Knockout of the Night" can be picked up by any athlete. The sum is usually either $50,000 or $75,000, depending on the size of the event. Those bonuses are awarded for exactly what they state, but what if there was one more category; "Performance of the Night". Performance is often over-looked for exciting styles and big finishes, so...

POLL: Who Will Beat Jon Jones In 2014?

Posted on January 10, 2014, 08:43 AM by Rory Kernaghan
Jon ‘Bones’ Jones has reigned atop the UFC Light-Heavyweight division since tearing the title from the grasp of Mauricio Rua at UFC 128. That was 2011, and the time since has been spent improving his astounding record to 19-1. Ex champions Rashad Evans, Quinton Jackson, Lyoto Machida and Vitor Belfort make up Jones’ most impressive wins; and his recent slobber knocker vs. Alexander Gustafsson at UFC 165 is widely regarded as the best fight of 2013. His only loss comes in the form of a DQ...

The term GOAT does not come around too often in combat sports, especially not one as young as MMA. Thus far, the only legitimate claims to being the greatest of all time in MMA have come in the form of Fedor Emelianenko and Anderson Silva. Emelianenko dominated the Heavyweight division in Pride FC, and went on to capture the WAMMA HW belt before his eventual decline. His age began to show when he dropped three fights on the trot between 2010-11. First he was submitted in one round by Fabricio Werdum, then...

The Middleweight Championship picture is a far cry from the early 2013 version; Anderson Silva no longer holds the division hostage and Chris Weidman will defend his title against a resurging Vitor Belfort mid way through this year. If I were a betting man, I would never have placed money on that scenario occurring. The reality in such a turbulent sport is that anything can happen, to just about anyone. Silva is yet another example of how merciless the sport of MMA truly is, although he could still shock the...

POLL: Did You Score Mark Hunt vs. Antonio Silva As A Draw?

Posted on December 22, 2013, 11:24 AM by Rory Kernaghan
Mark Hunt and Antonio ‘Bigfoot’ Silva went to war at UFC Ultimate Fight Night 33 in Brisbane, putting on a great show of heart and durability en-route to their FOTN winning draw. Although Silva failed the post fight drug test for elevated levels of concentrated rage, the bout itself was a thoroughly entertaining slug fest. So much so, I’ve found myself re watching the fight a few times over the last week, and I can’t help but feel that Hunt won the fight. It seemed that Hunt had the...

There’s not much that Anderson ‘The Spider’ Silva hasn’t done in his 33-5 MMA career. The Brazilian had reigned atop the UFC 185lb. division with relative ease before losing to Chris Weidman at UFC 162. The inevitable rematch that will go down at UFC 168 will be pivotal in deciding the future of the division, but also in that of Silva’s career path.. A second loss to Weidman would settle once and for all that Silva is done, at least in my opinion. It is always hard to digest when...

POLL: Who Is The Best Striker In MMA Right Now?

Posted on December 4, 2013, 03:56 AM by Rory Kernaghan
Striking has long been my favorite style in MMA, not only for it's aesthetic qualities, but also for it's effectiveness. Muay Thai, Boxing, MMA style striking, karate and many othe Martial Arts help make up the varied display of the stand up game that we see in MMA. Some fighters use excellent defensive techniques to utilize striking range, whereas others preferr to steamroll through opponents with deadly power. One fighter that springs to mind for me is Anderson Silva, so who do you think is the best striker...

The main event at TUF 18 Finale was a 155lb. battle between long time rivals Gray Maynard and Nate Diaz, and the result couldn’t have been more decisive; Diaz dispatched of Maynard like a boss in the very first round. The first TKO that Diaz has scored in three years has raised questions about Maynard’s ability to compete, but also leads us to pondering on where Diaz goes next. Winner of TUF 5 Lightweight bracket, Diaz’s record has been a mixed bunch of lower-high level wins and top level...
