UFC 244 AfterMMAth (The Bullshit Middle Finger Belt Edition)

So welcome back, one and all. Today’s AfterMMAth is the BMF (Bullshit Middle Finger) edition. Expect fireworks, President Trump, and all kinds of shenanigans.

UFC 241 AfterMMAth (Blood, Sweat and so many tears)

I don’t feel like writing a full piece on this event. Why? It would just make me re-live that sad moment at the end. Not to mention… those picks. But, We’re here to talk MMA and not wollow in our pain, so…

UFC 240 AfterMMAth (Why Do They Hate Canada?)

How uninteresting was UFC240? How unexcited were we in the week leading to the event? I think the fact that we discussed the next Fight Night, Lawler/Covington and the state of the wonderful WW division in general, more than the upcoming PPV says it all. Canada gave the UFC Georges St. Pierre, and UFC gave Canada the middle finger… Why? Canadians are awesome people! I know that from experience. So why did they deserve such a card?
Alright, let’s jump right to my picks. Then, we’ll chat about this, that and the other.

UFC 239 AfterMMAth (Underdogs And Other Dogs)

How many times, did we wait, impatiently for a hyped up event, like UFC 239 only to have it end with a relative disappointment? All those missed weights, last minute injuries, not to mention judges “contribution” and post fights shenanigans… And 239 had Jon Jones at the top… scary prospect… But all the stars aligned, everyone showed up and I think the word to use, to describe this event as a whole is – Fantastic!
Alright, let’s jump right to my picks. Then, we’ll chat about this, that and the other.

UFC 238 AfterMMAth (Two Eyes, One Nose, One Big Mouth)

For the longest time, UFC 238 flew right under my radar. That was until they announced Cowboy Vs. Ferguson. This fight was scheduled to “save a dull card” apparently. So, I went and looked at the scheduled fights and realized that, although “The People’s Main Event” will certainly bring the buzz to Chicago, the card is full of gems as it is. I thoroughly enjoyed it for the most part.
Alright, let’s jump right to my picks. Then, we’ll chat about this, that and the other.

UFC 237 AfterMMAth (Pulling Triggers)

UFC237 was another card that over delivered, for the lack of general enthusiasm among MMA fans. It featured 7 finishes in 12 fights, and for the most part was a fun watch.
Alright, let’s jump right to my picks. Then, we’ll chat about this, that and the other.

UFC 236 AfterMMAth (Who-Knows-Fights)

When Joe Rogan screamed the pre-PPV hype, next to Anik and Cormier, he dubbed the Co-Main and Main event of UFC236 “Who knows fights”. That was true. Who knew? Well, some of us thought we did, but even those of us who called the right score, would admit it wasn’t a lock. For my part, I can say that all the main card fights were kind of “Who knows?” Let me put in a bit of, badly written, foreshadowing – Not me…
Alright, let’s jump right to my picks. Then, we’ll chat about this, that and the other.
