MMA Inequity | The disrespect of 'The Damage'

Drake Riggs - July 4, 2018

When a fighter personifies the definition of a gritty warrior, one might think that they would be given their proper due and respect. This is not that case. Inequity is a disease in MMA that will always be spreading to those it shouldn’t. But that doesn’t make it right or okay. Somebody has to point out everything wrong with these instances.

UFC St. Louis Results: Darren Elkins delivers another epic comeback win (highlights)

Tom Taylor - January 14, 2018

Originally, featherweights Michael Johnson and Darren Elkins were expected to battle on the UFC St. Louis undercard. When the card’s co-main event was scrapped at the last minute, however, Johnson and Elkins were bumped up to the main card. Round one of this fight was all Michael Johnson’s, who pelted his foe with crackling combinations, wobbling him on more than one occasion. By the time the first frame ended, Elkins seemed to be oozing blood from every orifice north of the neck, and yet he managed to get off his stool for the second all the same.
