So the UFC released you? Now What?

Posted on 10 January 2011 by Hobson Lopes

The recent release of the “Irish hand Grenade” Marcus Davis left me to wonder what was to come for his mixed martial arts future.  Many fighters have made a name for themselves inside the Octagon allowing for bigger paydays outside the UFC.  However, getting the pink slip isn’t the best thing for your career.  When the top MMA organization in the world drops you, your immediate future doesn’t look bright.  Even as recent as last year, the dreaded three fight losing streak was almost a guaranteed release.  With the recent WEC/UFC merger, a fighter might not get a chance to lose three straight.

How 5 Months have changed Chael Sonnen’s Career

Posted on 05 January 2011 by Hobson Lopes

Chael Sonnen has led one of the most decorated careers in recent memory.  However, his career started with a list of fights against nobodies.  He started his career 6 – 0, with the only meaningful victory coming over Jason Miller.  This was even before you could call Miller “Mayhem.”  He would then lose to Trevor Prangley & Forrest Griffin in 2003.  Following a loss to Jeremy Horn in September, 2004, Sonnen rebounded and went 3 – 1 before getting the call to fight in the UFC.

Fights to make after UFC 125

Posted on 02 January 2011 by Raphael Garcia

UFC 125 was the event that started off the 2011 year for the mixed martial arts community. The event was filled with high energy moments from the start and ended with a main event that tore the house down. Frankie Edgar weathered a first round barrage like none other from challenger Gray Maynard. Barely escaping that round, Edgar went on to show a level of heart like none other, as he and the challenger went toe to toe for 25 minutes. After everything was said and done, the judges were unable to decide a clear winner, and the main event ended in a draw.
