Pro MMA Radio interview with Brock Lesnar

We are now less than two weeks away from what is being billed as “the biggest fight in UFC history.”  That is an enormous title to live up to; but for different reasons, if there are two MMA fighters who can live up to the challenge it is these two Octagon warriors.  On the one hand we have Randy “the Natural” Couture; the wise and weathered veteran who has seen it all, been through it all, and sits upon the throne as King of the UFC.

But a famed warrior reminiscent of Conan has burst through the castle doors and challenged the ruler to a duel in front of the whole kingdom.  This warrior is bigger, faster, stronger and in many ways the antithesis of our battle-hardened king.  It will be a fight for the ages, for all the glory and all the treasure the Master of the Octagon deserves.

UFC: Sport or Entertainment?

by: Jack Bratcher

I woke up today a bit confused. After watching a recent video interview with Randy Couture where he says that no one is pretending Brock Lesnar is the number one contender for the UFC Heavyweight Title, but rather it is “about the eyeballs,” it just got me to thinking.

Is the top MMA promotion in the world a sports league? I find myself telling people “MMA is the fastest growing sport in the world” and often I point to the UFC as proof of that. They are being covered by ESPN, Sports Illustrated, and innumerable sports news affiliates around the world. So I know I’m not crazy when I consider what the UFC does a sport.

Gan “The Giant” McGee made his return to the cage tonight after retiring from professional MMA competition four years ago.

Dana White post-UFC 88 interview

Many people were left feeling bewildered after UFC 88.  How could The Iceman, the most popular mma athlete in the world and a knockout artist in his own right, get laid out cold by a TUF winner?  How was this possible?  People began to act and speak as if it “shouldn’t” have happened.

Immediately after UFC 88 and following the KO heard around the world in Atlanta, Dana White spoke with ESPN radio where he addressed some of these concerns and a lot more. Here is what the good friend of Chuck Liddell and UFC President, Dana White had to say :

  • In reference to the main event, White states “Chuck Liddell has never been knocked out like that, ever.”
  • He goes on to say that Rashad Evans felt Chuck “was at the end of his career” and was very excited about his match up with the Iceman.
  • White talks about a “changing of the guard” and how The Ultimate Fighter is “the real deal” for bringing in new talent.
  • Now we have TUF 1 winner vs. TUF 2 winner for the LHW title.
  • White says the LHW title fight would have been Rampage vs. Forrest in a rematch but his legal issues screwed the timing up. [Rampage instead will fight Shogun.]
  • Dana discusses his questionable eating habits that were displayed during his video blogs.
