Conor McGregor Needs To Tone Down The Talk Until He Proves His Worth

I’ll give Conor McGregor credit; the Irish bad boy knows how to get his name in the headlines, even while he sits on the sidelines, recovering from knee surgery. McGregor, though, has a little bit of a misunderstanding going on about himself. He’s not quite the best fighter in the world – yet – like...

Pat Barry: Leg Breaking Low Kicks Worth The Risk

“I’m a very conscious fighter. I think about it always – all the time. Every time I throw a kick. Every time my foot comes off the ground, if it lands I’m going to win, if they block it I’m going to lose. It’s a fact. I don’t hold anything back, I just let them...

Jon Jones Breaks Multiple UFC Records In UFC 172 Bout

It’s hard to argue against Jon Jones’ claim as the best pound-for-pound fighter in the world. Even I can admit to being turned, seemingly overnight, into a ‘Bones’ fan and advocate. He’s pretty good guys. More impressive than his dominant title reign, is how he continues to break records, defy odds, and cement himself as...

MMA Journalist Chokes Out Violent Passenger On Plane

  Glory 15, which took place this past weekend in Turkey, had quite an ending.

Renan Barao Open To Teammate vs. Teammate Bout vs. Marlon Moraes

  Anderson Silva is okay with fighting Lyoto Machida… Jacare is okay with fighting Anderson… Lyoto knocked his friend Mark Munoz clean out… Anderson would fight Jacare… and now, Renan Barao is apparently willing to fight his friend, Marlon Moraes.   It’s anarchy, I tells ya!   That, or UFC fighters are finally realizing that – if...

Sonnen Explains How Easy It Is To Manipulate Wanderlei

“He is so stupid, I’m ashamed of him. He is a checkers player. In checkers you play one move at a time. If you are a chess player, you have to guess what I’m going to do and plan your next move, you have to be three or four moves ahead. He is so stupid,...

Dana White: “UFC is worth $3.5 Billion, some would say more”

How much is the UFC actually worth? That’s the ‘Billion’ dollar question. With the never-ending expansion of the world’s MMA leader it’s safe to say that the Fertitta’s small $2 million investment in the 90’s has paid off for them. But how much? In a recent sit-down in London with Lucy Kellaway, columnist for The...

Pat Barry Set for GLORY Debut in May on Spike TV

With a booming personality that was only matched by his go-for-it fighting style, Pat Barry was a fan favorite during his five-year run in mixed martial arts. Barry, somewhat surprisingly, retired from the UFC after a 5-7 run through its heavyweight division. The ground game was always an albatross around Barry’s neck so it fitting...
