Quote of the week – Big John McCarthy

Monday, August 25th, 2008

From a new column on Fox Sports: Here’s the question: Kimbo Slice or Brock Lesnar? Which one is going to be the better mixed martial artist? I love how everyone is so quick to jump on or off either fighter’s bandwagon. Why is it that some MMA fans want to bring these guys down? They […]

Attrocious boxing scoring on display in Beijing

Saturday, August 23rd, 2008

I give the folks at Total MMA a lot of credit for liveblogging and covering the multitude of amateur boxing fights at the Beijing Olympics this year. They deserve praise from everyone for doing this. Unfortunately, I have no idea how to even start writing about the ‘amateur boxing’ has been put on display at […]

Angel Matos has a special message for Olympic officials

Saturday, August 23rd, 2008

We’ve seen awful scoring during these Beijing Olympics in boxing (if you want to call it ‘boxing’ that you are watching there) and we’ve seen some controversial officiating in other combat-related sports during the games. Well, a competitor finally lost his mind and decided that he had enough. Meet Angel Matos. Matos is a Cuban […]

Quote of the Day – Violence

Friday, August 22nd, 2008

Oh dear… But quite frankly, I wonder why more school shootings don’t occur. Given that it is in our nature to be violent, be it war, bullying, gladiators, Ultimate Fighting Championships, and what not, the question I ask is why all the shock and surprise?

Those ‘last days of PRIDE’ feelings are back…

Friday, August 22nd, 2008

That was my first reaction when reading this article. At least PRIDE went out with a bang on their last few shows (except the very last one with Jeff Monson beating Kazuyuki Fujita).

Sengoku 4 this weekend at Saitama Super Arena

Friday, August 22nd, 2008

Amazingly quiet and little press coverage going into this weekend’s big show for World Victory Road. We know that the promotion has a show booked in Yoyogi for late September, but this weekend’s SSA event is critical for the promotion’s long-term financial health. They need to build momentum fast. Heavyweights: Yoshiki Takahashi vs. Valentijn Overeem […]
