  • UFC 251 Results

    While not oceanside in the sand like we were promised, the UFC octagon found its way, somehow, against the odds and recommendation of many, to Fight Island for the first of four scheduled events. The first, on paper, was certainly the best in terms of star power. With three...
  • UFC Fight Night: Poirier v. Hooker Results

    In the APEX’s penultimate show before we sail off to Fight Island, former Interim Lightweight Champion Dustin Poirier and gritty New Zealander Dan Hooker collided in a sure-fire FOTY candidate which left both men, unsurprisingly, in the hospital. In the co-main event, Mike Perry and his girlfriend decisioned a...
  • UFC Fight Night: Blaydes v. Volkov Results

    Summer started officially this evening in the Northern Hemisphere, and like the setting sun, the wrestler wrestled the striker. Curtis Blaydes landed his personal, and broke the UFC heavyweight record in single-fight takedowns with 14. Almost an inevitability, Alexander Volkov, a brown-belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, had little answer to...
  • UFC 250: Nunes v. Spencer Results

    When the full lineup of UFC 250 was announced, there were many vocal doubters as to the card’s star-power. I denounced these people then, as I do now after the fact (my doubt is reserved for next Saturday’s Eye/Calvillo card). UFC 250 was lined with solid matchmaking, and while...
  • UFC Fight Night: Overeem vs. Harris – Results

    In the final act of the Jacksonville trilogy, the UFC pieced together a card headlined by an emotional clash between veteran Alistair Overeem and the surging Walt Harris. The fight game is at best indifferent, and tonight was no different, with the main event ending in bittersweetness and a...
  • UFC Jacksonville Results

    In a scramble to recover their insane weekly schedules of fights, the UFC kept the flag planted in Jacksonville for a rare Wednesday night card, capped off by an exciting matchup between former light-heavyweight title challengers Anthony “Lionheart” Smith and Glover Teixeira. While both men fell victim to Jon...
  • What’s Next? Thoughts and Matchups After UFC 249

    We knew no obstacles would keep Dana and the madmen running this circus from figuring something out. The UFC managed, somehow, to get the show back up and running, but lost two fights in the ensuing chaos. Jacare Souza tested positive for the COVID virus, leaving his fight with...
  • UFC 249 Results

    Amidst a global pandemic and socioeconomic stress boiling to an all-time high, the Octagon miraculously came to Jacksonville, Florida like the prodigal son for an impressive return to form. While unfortunately losing Jacare Souza vs. Uriah Hall, the card still delivered some ridiculous scraps, some questionable stoppages and a...
  • What’s Next? Fights to Make After UFC 247

    Jon Jones Similar to his last appearance, Jon Jones has looked like a champion, but not the dominant champion he has been before. This Jon Jones, whether from boredom or lack of conviction, is content to win 3 rounds of championship fights and coast to another successful title defense....
  • UFC 247 Results

    The UFC returned to Houston last night for a round of fistfights. While upsets ran rampant in the early and ESPN prelims, things went about as everyone expected on the main card with some strong adversity from Dominick Reyes in the main event. The Houston judges were also on...
