UFC 230 AfterMMAth (Prime Time At The Garden)

Four out of the five main card fights ended via finish, while the prelims (which always find ways to be awesome) sported a total of two. Yet, I’d argue that up to the last 2 preliminary fights, it was still a very entertaining undercard. Not too many shenanigans, so… let’s get on with things.
Alright, let’s jump right to my picks. Then, we’ll chat about this, that and the other.

UFC 229 AfterMMAth (No Lines Crossed)

Right up until those final minutes of the PPV, it was a really good card. 7 finishes out of 12 fights, in a night that kicked-off with two consecutive head kick stoppages, and barely a boring moment.
In honor of the good effort put by these fighters, we will do the same. Keep the shenanigans to the post main event.
Alright, let’s jump right to my picks. Then, we’ll chat about this, that and the other.

UFC 226 AfterMMAth (The Paul Heyman Edition)

UFC 200 AfterMMath (Respect)

Welcome back,
It’s somewhat symbolic that this UFC 200 AfterMMAth post comes out on the 5th anniversary of the first centennial event – UFC 100. We’ve talked about the comparison between the two before the final card of 200 took final shape. It was, and still is an unfair comparison but it is interesting that on 200 we had a few UFC100 returns, Brock Lesnar being the obvious. But let’s not forget Jim Miller who fought in 100 and the fight that never happened, featured Jon Jones, another UFC100 card member.
This post will cover three events (and a whole lot of predictions) so excuse me if I breeze through a few to concentrate on the more important ones in the bigger scheme of things.

UFC 200 (and more) prediction extravaganza!!!

Hello everyone and welcome back to this here website.
What a week! Starting with some 4th of July fireworks and only escalating from there, culminating in a fight weekend to be remembered. This post will be long enough, just predicting three separate events (UFC 200 including all prelims) so excuse me if I save on preamble.
Still, UFC200 is this Saturday and I can’t not say something about it, now can I?
