UFC Copenhagen

I am so jealous. I wish my job took me to China, Mexico City and Copenhagen, Denmark. Oh well. Living vicariously. The octagon is in Copenhagen today and we are blessed with an early start time for the fights. My picks? All heart. Brandon Davis vs Giga Chikadze. Brandon Macy Chiasson vs Lina Lansberg – […]

The Mexican Post Toast

Even with the disappointing ending, it turned out to be a fun night of fights down south. My picks were all heart: Teco, Polo, Hill, Sergio, Craig and Sarj. Esparza and Yair. As it turned out, Teco, Angela Hill and Sergio looked great. Paul Craig won via sub – but of course. And Betche beat […]

Vancouver Post Toast

Was it good for you? Outside of the clown show, it was great for me. All of my picks came through except one. Yes, that one. Did you see Pereira flipping all over the octagon? I had to watch it twice to fully appreciate it. The first time was stressful – I was afraid some […]

UFC Vancouver

Back to normal hours now with Fight Night Vancouver. I admit I was tired, but very excited to stay up all night watching the show from China. There was a community of people online, all of us enjoying the show together. UFC: Bringing people together. So we’re back to normal with some strategic fights. Circunov […]

242 Post Toast

Congrats to Khabib, still undefeated. I was rooting for Dustin, really thought he had something figured out about Khabib’s ground game. He had not. Oh well. I said before that experiencing these fights is very emotional. I don’t know any of these guys, I don’t have any hatred towards any one person, and I don’t […]

UFC 242

Finally! How long has it been since Dustin won that interim belt? Seems like years. And then there was the fallout to Khabib vs Conor, remember that? Good times. Did anyone ever report on the other half of Khabib’s money? Did the Nevada commission keep it? Anyway – the octagon is in Abu Dhabi for […]

Morning in Shenzhen

It didn’t take much to convince me to watch UFC Shenzhen in the early hours of the morning – I’m usually awake when 3am hits anyway. And I didn’t post any picks because to be honest, I only cared about Weili Zhang and Li Jingliang, and they delivered. I absolutely love Jingliang, the most extra […]

UFC 241 Post Toast

What a show! These fights can be very emotional, and you realize who you were rooting for (or against) when it’s all over. At the end of the show, all that mattered to me was the Diaz win. But let’s go back a bit. Yoel vs Costa: I really thought Yoel had one more left […]

UFC 241

Fight week is here and UFC 241 has the rematch we’ve all been waiting for: Stipe is back and he wants his belt. I like DC, but I can’t imagine Stipe falling for the banana in the tailpipe again. I just can’t. I think he’ll win in dramatic fashion and DC retires in the cage. […]

Rebuilding

For several reasons, my favorite weight class used to be Middleweight (185): Jacare, Weidman, Mousasi, Anderson Silva, Hendo, Marreta, Bisping, and of course, my guy Luke Rockhold. I say used to be because time rolls on. Some moved up to 205 (Weidman, Marreta), some are no longer with us in body (Mousasi), or in spirit […]

Newark post mortem

I didn’t watch any of the Colby-Usman post-fight stuff after UFC Newark, but I took a look at it today on demand. Then I realized, I’m not interested in the staged arguments, the “let’s do it right now!” kind of nonsense with “security” standing by. That’s a bit much for me. But congratulations to Colby […]

Newark

This weekend, the UFC is travelling to the great American city of Newark, New Jersey. And there’s an early start time! On the US east coast! Yes! Many of us will be grateful for the early start – at least we won’t be up until 3am watching press conferences. The picks Hannah Goldy. Why not? […]
