Are you fired up about UFC 121?


I don't usually get fired up about MMA unless one of my friends or someone very special is fighting, however this Saturday UFC 121 has some really great match ups. Of course the biggest one for me is Brock Lesnar v Cain Velasquez. I don't remember when was the last time I heard so many people talking about a fight! This match up may turn out to be a dud but in paper, ahead of the fight this looks like a barn burner.(read more)

Editorial: The State of MMA Judging

Kid Peligro 200x200.jpg

It seems that of late lots have been said about the state of MMA judging. With the increase in frequency of events from multiple production companies, there has been an inordinate amount of "disputed" decisions in professional MMA fights. Some even of the biggest names in the business like Dana White and "Big" John Mc Carthy have addressed this very issue. While bad decisions are part of every sport, it seems imperative now that the different State athletic Commissions develop a master plan to educate the referees and judges on the nuances of MMA. Since many of these referees and judges come from the sport of boxing, many lack the understanding of what is important and effective in an MMA fight. (read more)
