UFC225 was a 3-in-1 deal, where every section (Fight pass prelims, TV prelims, Main card) could each be a main card on any given night. The main card featured 5 fights, all of which went to decisions, the 13 fights on the whole evening yielded only 5 finishes and still, 225 was a very entertaining card top to bottom.
Alright, let’s jump right to my picks. Then, we’ll chat about this, that and the other.
In the beginning there was Cody Vs. TJ and all fans were a’crazed (yes, it’s a thing). Then the MMA Lord said “Let there be not!” and there was not.
On the second day there was Cowboy Vs. Lawler and manginas were wet. Then the MMA Lord said “Let there be not!” and there was not.
On the 11th hour there was Nunes Vs. Shevchenko and everyone in Peru and outside (including significant chunks of Brazil) were excited. Then the MMA Lord… or Nunes… or the doctor… or… god damn it, this card was cursed!
Or was it?
Let’s discuss my picks quickly and then, if I don’t pull out, we’ll do something new and exciting.
Hello everyone, welcome back to another installment of UFC PPV AfterMMAth.
It seems like anyone with the ability to express themselves spoke of one thing and one thing only these past few weeks – UFC200. Continue reading
Millions of words must have been spilled about the return of the Light Heavyweight king, Jon “Bones” Jones. What can I add? Only my excitement and anticipation. What shape is Jon in? What state of mind? How big of a challenge will OSP be? Saint Preux has already shown us that he’s not to be looked down at. This isn’t a walk in the park for Jones. Continue reading
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!
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!
Stefan Struve by TKO
Uriah Hall by UD

and now! the moment millions of MMA fans have been waiting for, from Melbourne, Australia! This is the main event of the evening!

Don’t forget to get back here by Monday morning for the after MMAth!
And of course, don’t forget to watch UFC 193 on PPV – This Saturday, November 14th!
