UFC 202 – Predictions

Hola Amigos!
As you might know, a BIG change took place in my life, hence the much reduced schedule here.
Not much time to put up this post, so I’ll be brief.
A lot of antics, as expected, before this one. I share Carlos Condit’s view on this silliness.

UFC 199 AfterMMAth (He Shook Up The World)

Hello there MMA fans, and welcome everyone else to this After MMAth post, following one of the best cards in recent memory (which is filled with some really good cards).

Every Fighter Is A Song

Howdy!

My sincere apologies for the delay, but you know how it is… work work work. All’s I can say – it beats the alternative…

If you did not enjoy UFC 196, I seriously don’t know what else they can offer. It’s not about who you were behind on the fights, if you had a favorite. It’s about the beauty of this sport. The hype leads up to an event and on that event – excuse the cliché but it’s true – anything can happen. The hype can get a boost, it can die down in a silent whimper, or, as in the case of last night – it can live up to its build-up in a pretty unexpected way. Continue reading
