Khabib Nurmagomedov is the lightweight champion but it didn’t stop people from complaining. His team and some of his hardcore fans accused Joe Rogan of “biased” commentary in his match with Al Iquinta at UFC 223 but Rogan stands by his comments. Pointing out flaws in someone’s game is not bias it is an opinion but that won’t stop some fans or fighters from lashing out if they have something negative said about them. Listen to his commentary and you tell us – is it biased?
Fable Anniversary includes the original game, as well as The Lost Chapters expansion that released a year later. Fable casts the player as a hero in a fantasy world, though the term “hero” doesn’t necessarily mean you’re noble; heroes in the Fable universe try to build renown through good or bad deeds. Using a combination of magic, swordplay, and archery, you complete quests and build a reputation. Your persona might be built upon benevolent acts, like defending those in need.

FAIRFAX, Va. – “UFC Fight Night 20” takes place at the Patriot Center in Fairfax, Va. tonight and the main card will air live on Spike TV. Headlining the card is a lightweight match between Gray Maynard (8-0, 6-0-1 UFC) and Nate Diaz (11-4, 6-2 UFC). The two first fought each other on season five of The Ultimate Fighter back in 2007.
They squared off in the second semi-final match to see which one would face Manny Gamburyan in the finals. Diaz ended up submitting Maynard via guillotine choke in the second round, and then won in the finals against Gamburyan to become the season five champion and winner of a six-figure contract with the UFC.
If Maynard can win impressively over Diaz tonight, he is right there in the mix for a lightweight title shot with B.J. Penn. Diaz wants to stop Maynard’s winning streak, force the UFC brass to take note, and move himself into the title hunt. ProMMA.info (www.promma.info) will be documenting the fights tonight via live results and round-by-round commentary – won’t you join us? We would love to read your comments.

Play-by-play commentary starts after the jump…
Scarcely has there ever been a fighter so young in the sport take so much criticism as Muhammed “King Mo” Lawal. Whether it be his outspoken personality, his confidence (some say arrogance), or his flashy style, for some reason, the former NCAA national collegiate wrestling champion has an uncanny ability to polarize people.
Mo has consistently faced and beaten whoever the promotions have put in front of him without complaint. It seems people forget that fighters are not matchmakers. If certain critics had their way Mo would have fought Gegard Mousasi in his second or third fight.
Now think about that just for a second… even if the matchmakers wanted to make that fight, do you think Mousasi or his manager, at this stage of his career, would want him facing some new guy with only three fights? Sure it could make Mo a star overnight if he won, but it would ruin Mousasi if he lost.
SAN JOSE – This is it folks! Tonight’s the night for “Strikeforce: Evolution.” It is the promotion’s final card for 2009, and on paper at least, it may be their best of the year. The only down side is we’re only getting four fights on the televised main card since they couldn’t find an opponent for Robbie Lawler.
