(calm piano music) – [Narrator] Fighting for money is the story of exploitation. Wealthy brand owners, and desperate outsiders who could do nothing but fight. It was an unregulated backwater, then incredibly niche, and then just another sport, even if it did ultimately thrive off the intimate combat of two people. – It’s morning again […]

Luck Rockhold out, Jacare in …

Rockhold pulls out. Rockhold gets hurt. I don’t know what happened there. I just haven’t heard other than an injury. Rockhold had to pull out against the fight with Weidman and I was so looking forward to that fight. And I always thought on the MSG card, I always thought there was a misplacement as […]

There’s a genuine dislike between Gegard Mousasi and Rory MacDonald.

Greatest fight card Scott Coker’s ever put on. To tell you how good this card is, Wanderlei Silva is fighting Rampage Jackson and they’re not the main event. Just to put that in perspective. Aaron Pico is on the card. He is not the main event. He is not even the co-main event. So when […]

RE: Conor McGregor – In MMA, bad wrestling is enough…

By Stevie Adams / in , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , /

We know that Conor is going to go out there and out-strike Khabib. At least we’re willing to concede that to the point that Khabib’s own coach, Javier Mendez, came out and said, “We can’t out-strike Conor. He’s just too good and he’s too dynamic and we don’t have enough time.” I think that the […]

Conor McGregor vs Khabib Nurmagomedov rematch? Not so fast…

Conor is in a tough spot and it’s only a tough spot because it is a unique spot, and it’s a unique spot that should not have been created. And what I’m talking about is Conor would like to rematch Khabib from everything that we’ve been told. It’s very easy for us to believe that […]

News broke: Ben Askren… This is how it was reported, Ben Askren to be traded to the UFC, in exchange for Demetrious Johnson to be traded to One Championship by the way, I guess it’s called One Championship now. I guess it’s not called One FC. All right, fine The One Championship… Look at the […]

Conor McGregor comes from a country that doesn’t have wrestling, and Khabib Nurmagomedov does…

So interesting that, for me as a fan, one of the things that has kept me in the sport as long as it has is I always fall for the promotion. In pro wrestling terms, I’m what’s called a mark, but I love being a mark. People never want to be a mark. I love […]


Floyd Mayweather’s getting played by the Japanese…he will leave Japan 50-1.

By Stevie Adams / in , , , , , , , , , , , , , /

What is Floyd Mayweather doing and how do we possibly make sense of this? Listen, a couple of weeks ago I told you guys I thought that this fight was a real thing. When the world was pushing back and saying this was a publicity stunt, I said, “Ah, I don’t think so. I believe […]
