  1. Jack Slack for the win. I think his articles where better when he wasn't pumping out 2 per week for Fightland, but now that Fightland has shut down & Vice Sports has gone to video only, hopefully he gets back to the more in-depth, lower volume articles he used to write. His "Killing the King" series is excellent, and his wushu watches & commentary on kangaroo fights are always a fun read. He did have a video series called Ringcraft which was really amazing but Fightland messed up, held episode 4 on Rousey too long, then she lost & the content was no longer as relavent.
  2. Ahhhhh. There is justice in the UFC after all. Woodley vs. Maia UFC 214 July 29 https://www.bloodyelbow.com/2017/6/28/15890972/ufc-214-tyron-woodley-vs-demian-maia-title-mma-news in other news, Cowboy Cerrone is injured, out of his fight with Lawler at 213 next weekend. I think that's the 2nd time in Cowboy's 675 UFC fights he's pulled out due to injury. 213 can't catch a break.
  3. Well Showtime replays their PPV a few weeks or a month after the event right? I might wait for that. MAYWEATHER VS. MCGREGOR: Most Illegally Streamed Fight in the History of the World!!!! this also has reserved seats at a sports bar written all over it.
  4. Half of Floyd's audience wants him to lose to anyone, that's his genius that Conor also picked up on: if you only appeal to fans who want to watch you win, your throwing away potentially 50% of your audience. I know I just want to see Floyd's reaction to a loss like a lot of people. Floyd's doing this for the same reason as Conor, for the money. This is also not for fans of Floyd; delusion fans of Conor & haters of both fighters maybe and the casual fan who will watch this fight and not another one for 5-10 years. the fight will most likely be crap, I just want t
  5. What are the chances the UFC gets brought up on a violation of the Ali Act, which specifically state a promoter can not act as a fighters manager for the same event? they also noted Conor's payout (and Floyd's too I think) will not be disclosed due to a Non Disclosure Agreement. Other things odd about this fight- other than the obvious- are: -they noted Conor is prohibited from throwing kicks & elbows, suggesting a significant financial penalty if he does. Wonder if the same applies to Floyd, who sneaks in a ton of elbows? If Floyd's ref is there, there
  6. UFC just announced Anderson Silva vs Kelvin Gastelum as the co-main event at UFC 211 in Rio behind Aldo Hollaway. I know now why Gastelum took this fight, but why did Silva? maybe the new bosses said show me a highlight finish before we talk GSP. this is just odd.
  7. Dana being Dana, saying Team Khabib went rouge & took him to a "random" hospital instead of calling the UFC to get their Doctor to either look at Khabib or at least direct him where to go. Also said he was 6 pounds over when it happened at 5:30am. Knowing I should only believe half (at most) of what Dana says, I wonder which statement is true?
  8. Well he is fighting in a division 15 pounds heavier than the belt he held for an instant, and he naturally is a fat guy. Says he gets up to 220+ in between camps & he's like 5'10". He gets destroyed at middleweight, got lucky & fought the only 185 close to his size in Lombard, most will have 6"+ reach advantage on him.
  9. Guess so, him & Ferguson for yet another Interim Belt. & Anderson Silva vs Derek Brunson at UFC 208. Spider-the king of counters & drawing charges- vs. A wild charging, off-balance punch-throwing Brunson; YES PLEASE!?
  10. Why does Khabib want Ferguson so badly? He is clearly the #1 contender at 155, why fight Ferguson who is ranked behind him? As for other divisions, the only other stacked division at the moment is 170 with Thompson itching for a rematch after his draw and Lawler, Maia & Cerrone all knocking on the door for a title shot. Oh, and some Irish 155'er wants a shot at the 170 belt too. 185 just seems to be stacked with Bisping at the top, and while there are some nice up & comers, after the Bisping Romero fight we all expect who's next after a Rockhold/Souza conte
  11. Well reports are out that since her acting is so bad they might re-cut, re-shoot or shelve the movies she was to star in. & how marketable is she now in the WWE now that she's been tuned up on the feet twice in a row? Someone said it right earlier, her brand got it's ass kicked last night. I think Ronda thought she could strike after the Beth fight since she got the TKO. But then again that's like determining you could be the best base stealer of all time since you are faster on the base path than Babe Ruth. Beth was never a great striker, just a wild swinger.
  12. F'ing local cable provider screwed up and can't view the PPV. At a buddies place & it's not on, tried a few bars & same thing. This blows.
  13. & I know Hendo said win, lose or draw he's retiring, but if Hendo wins & the UFC doesn't make Hendo vs Anderson 2, I'm going to be really disappointed in Dana for not exploiting past their prime fighters like he used to. So McGregor v Alvarez for the 155 strap in NY. Man that card is stacked, 9 fights I want to see when usually it's just 3 or 4. Eagle vs MJ added too. Aldo is pissed, wants to be released, pointed out that Dana told him to vacate 145 belt if he wanted to challenge Pettis for the 155 strap. I like Alvarez, but I could see him getting caug
  14. Yeah, guess I should have clarified. I saw the Cinemax logo on the credits. Up here in Canada, we don't get Cinemax, HBO Canada has picked it up. They usually run Showtime, Cinemax or other networks shows on another pay movie network-like Dexter or House of Lies-but for some reason Quarry is on HBO in Canada. we do get AMC. When is Better Call Saul back? That's the only show I watch on that channel, never get to catch a preview.
