B.J. Penn Lost…Or Did He?

Monday, April 12th, 2010

Dana White and the UFC had hoped that UFC 112 would spark a major step for the organization in its campaign to grow internationally. The event, held in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates in an arena called "Ferrarri World" (which I always thought was 50 Cent's house), ...

Kimbo Slice Lost. So What?

Thursday, October 1st, 2009

So last night on "The Ultimate Fighter," internet sensation Kimbo Slice made his highly anticipated debut. He lost to former IFL heavyweight champ Roy "Big Country" Nelson in a second-round stoppage.

I Wasted $60 And An Hour, Thanks Floyd

Saturday, September 19th, 2009

Boxing sucks. If Floyd Mayweather vs. Juan Manuel Marquez is the best boxing can do, then I'm done.  Floyd might be the best boxer in the game right now, but his fights are, for the lack of a better word, boring.  We just watched 12 rounds and my friend's Pekingese running around ...

We'll most definitely be watching the title fight (and Silva/Griffin) on Saturday night...and hopefully gloating on Sunday after Ken-Flo wins hisself the belt. Dear NFL, please reconsider the banishment of Twitter ...

You Suck, Tim Sylvia

Sunday, June 14th, 2009

You know who's pissed about Ray Mercer's nine-second KO of former UFC heavyweight champion Tim Sylvia (I mean, other than Sylvia himself)? Fedor Emilianenko. Because now his own quick submission of Sylvia doesn't look nearly as impressive as it did at the time. Dana White has to be laughing his ...

The Most Important Result From UFC 97: Dana White Is An Idiot

Sunday, April 19th, 2009

The genius of Dana White is what got the UFC back into the spotlight. He made it legitimate and brought an entertaining fight organization into the mainstream consciousness again, but for good reasons instead of bad ones. He created weight classes, created uniform rules for the fighters to follow, eliminated ...
