Sure, we’re not getting Cyborg vs Nunes, but it may happen down the line. For now we are getting Invicta FC champion Yana Kunistkaya vs UFC featherweight champ Cris Cyborg at UFC 222 on Saturday, March 3rd. We reportedly almost had Frankie Edgar vs Conor McGregor if you believe Conor’s tweets that he offered to face Frankie. Regardless, this should be a solid card. Check it out.
Frankie Edgar (22-5) is one of the most well-rounded fighters the UFC has ever known and is still near the top of his game at age 36, losing just once in the last five years. While Brian Ortega has never actually lost in the octagon (13-0, 1 NC), Edgar represents a step-up in competition for the 26-year-old, … Read more
We love these things. The latest remix featuring a UFC fighter is a take on Derrick Lewis’s UFC Fight Night post fight interview where he said he was “Going Deep”. You can guess what he was talking about it. Think about it and then check out this remix.
Tyler Shipp won the Hardrock MMA middleweight title and that in itself is an accomplishment because Brandon “Hardrock” Higdon’s promotion is the premier fight organization in Kentucky. It attracts fighters from all over the country making it that much more meaningful for Shipp to hold a title there. Here’s the kicker – Tyler won both … Read more
Conor McGregor’s UFC absence has been noticeable and has now become a problem that Dana White is about to solve.

Nurmagomedov vs McGregor has been THE bout fans want to see and we may finally get it if Khabib can beat Tony. Check out what Dana said about stripping McGregor of his title and where a potential Floyd Mayweather Jr. deal to fight in the UFC is at.
Anthony Joshua, the present IBF and WBA heavyweight world champion is in with a chance to add the WBO title also to the list of his achievements when he faces Joseph Parker on March 31st at the Principality Stadium in Cardiff, UK.

Ronda Rousey is hopefully about to take WWE by storm. Last night on RAW the hype got real and they released a video package of her in preparation for it and they did a really good job. Despite the rumors that she’s going to let Stephanie McMahon beat her and the outrage that will follow we are still excited. Are you? Check it out!
Because Luke Rockhold talked a lot of smack before UFC 221 it made his opponent go to a dark place. No not the dark place GSP said he went to before his bout with Nick Diaz. Romero put Luke on his “Blacklist” which is a naughty list of people he wants to annihilate. He spoke to MMAFighting’s MMA Hour and expounded. Check it out.
Jeff Jarrett was once in the dog house with Vince McMahon for holding him up for hundreds of thousands of dollars. He was leaving WWE for WCW and was scheduled to drop the intercontinental title to Chyna on a PPV but his conditions for doing so were kind of unreasonable. He wanted what he said were hundreds of thousands of dollars of back pay. Long story short, when Vince bought WCW one of the first things he did was fire Jeff Jarrett on air.
