I am probably busier than I have ever been in my life. I work five jobs and still need to find time to embarrass myself on the streets of DC. To help lighten the load, I asked my compatriot, John Buhl, to write a blog post.
Bellator 72, which takes place this evening at the USF Sun Dome, features a welterweight tournament finale, two light heavyweight tournament semifinals as well as some interesting fights featuring UFC and Strikeforce veterans. As always the main card airs live on MTV2 and EPIX, while the undercard can been seen on Spike.com.
In this episode we spoke with two top Canadian fighters: Ryan Ford — a soon-to-be Bellator fighter looking to prove he can beat the best in the world — and top prospect Tyson Steele. The two will square off in the main event at Aggression MMA 9 in Edmonton.
Richard Anderson Mann and John Buhl return to discuss the upcoming UFC 140 card. For perhaps the first time in show history, Richard is more excited for a UFC main event than his elder colleague.
There have been a few sets of brothers that have managed to reach the UFC level, and with a little luck, bantamweight prospect Sergio Pettis could join that list along with his brother Anthony, a current lightweight title contender.
Bellator’s fourth season presses on with Bellator 36. The card, which features first-round matches in the lightweight tournament, takes place at the Shreveport Municipal Auditorium in Shreveport, La. on Saturday. The main card will air live on MTV2.
“March Madness” mostly baffles me. Every year tons of people fill out brackets and compete against friends and coworkers. Invariably, someone without any basketball knowledge takes home the money. For example, my friend Dan, who once scored on his own hoop in a basketball game, was our pool champion last year.
Recently, the award winning “Madden Football” video game series has been receiving a great deal of credit for introducing fans to the X’s and O’s side of the game. Anyone who plays the game can tell you the difference between cover two and three deep coverage.
Lost in the sublime of the recent title fight between Anderson Silva and Chael Sonnen is the fact that the challenger had never fought past the three round mark in his whole life. It is rather ridiculous that a veteran of over 30 fights in a 13-year career has never fought for more than three rounds. Silva, now a veteran of three over three round fights, dramatically snatched the victory with a fifth-round triangle choke.
