UFC 221 AfterMMAth (Aussie Aussie Aussie, Oi Oi Vey)

Many people said this was not a card worthy of a PPV and you know, they might still have a case. It was, however a very enjoyable night of fights, with tons of action and fun fights, starting in the early prelims (very early if you were in Perth Australia…) all the way to the main event. We saw Israel Adesanya’s violent debut and a spinning back fist knockdown, A magnificent GnP and a surprising but welcome Kimura. But I’m getting ahead of myself here.
Let’s discuss my picks quickly. Then, we’ll chat about this, that and the other.

UFC 221 – Predictions

A lot of people question whether this card is “PPV worthy”. Me? I don’t really care. I see good potential and hope that this would become one of those cards that deliver more than expected. Interesting fights from early prelims to main event, which will give us the identity of the middleweight number one contender. I don’t have a lot of time so…
Let the predicting of UFC 221 coming up on Saturday, February 10th on PPV commence. (All credits go to UFC/WME-IMG for all photos.)

UFC 209 AfterMMAth (Shut up and fight)

Oh boy. It’s been quite some time since UFC ran 2 consecutive PPVs that – how shall we put it – did not go over too well with pretty much anyone. UFC 208 and UFC 209 will not be featured in any MMA awards, but they did teach us a few things.
But before we discuss that,  Let’s see if I also tanked on two consecutive cardsContinue reading

UFC 209 – Predictions

Well… Fudge.
This PPV, heavily leaned on the main and Co-main events. Now, with Khabib Vs. Ferguson out, it’s up to the rest of the card to rise up to the occasion.

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?

UFC 193 – Predictions

Hi everybody!

Here we go! one of two awesome cards (on paper) to close out 2015 is coming up this weekend and I for one, am super excited!

Pretty much all the events leading up to these two (193 and 194) served as appetizers, what with the never-ending UFC promo work during every break… I won’t lie, I’m sold. I especially look forward to one women fight. Oh yeah, a woman champion is involved. She’s a “bad-ass” fighter who looks to destroy her opponents, always moving forward, looking to cause damage and further her career and legacy. I am, of course, referring to… Joanna Jedrzejczyk!

Gotach! 🙂

Bet you were thinking Rousey like most of the population, but while I truly respect Ronda, I find Joanna’s fights more fun to watch. Something about her style perhaps, or the speed with which they take place.

These two women title fights are not all this PPV is about but they are the most hyped (and rightfully so). I will elaborate more when we review the results, but for the moment…

Let the predicting of UFC 193 coming up this Saturday, November 14th on PPV commence. (All credits go to UFC/Zuffa for all photos.) We ride!
