Unforgettable Upsets in MMA

Posted on 31 December 2011 by Tony Hackerott

As is the case with just about any full contact sport in existence, the competing favorite is likely to emerge victorious over opposition a good eight of ten times. Even in a sport as erratic as mixed martial arts, the odds makers tend to do their homework, and usually make the right picks. However, when the cycle is broken by the resilient underdog, it’s an amazing sensation, and it echoes in the memory.

2011’s Submission of the Year

Posted on 30 December 2011 by Tony Hackerott

This year saw a string of MMA fighters execute some amazing submissions. The massive Richard Hale caught Nik Fekete overlooking his submission prowess and locked on a tight inverted triangle choke that put the talented wrestler to sleep at Bellator 38. Chan Sung Jung, or as most now know him, “The Korean Zombie” pulled off one of the most rare submissions you’ll see in the sport, as he applied the powerful “Twister” to an unsuspecting Leonard Garcia at UFC Fight Night 24; it was hands down one of the most brilliant finishes in the history of the sport.

The Best Fight of 2011

Posted on 30 December 2011 by Tony Hackerott

This year offered an assortment of spectacular fights. Many a men engaged in highly memorable duels, and while fights like Frankie Edgar versus Gray Maynard III, Nick Diaz versus Paul Daley, and Jose Aldo versus Mark Hominick are certainly worthy of such recognition, one fight took place this year that stands head and shoulders above the rest of the pack.

UFC 141 Preview

Posted on 29 December 2011 by Dennis Fratella

Written By: Dennis Fratella

About a week ago I wrote an article on what encompassed the journey of the loser of this heavyweight battle that’s getting ready to go down tomorrow night. Rather than make a prediction then, I wanted to save it for now, because I really needed time to make up my mind not only for the headliner, but also the undercard as well. I think this card—at least these three fights I’m writing about, have to be some of the most well matched fights I’ve seen in some time.

3 Most Impressive Fighters of 2011

Posted on 29 December 2011 by Tony Hackerott

2011 proved a few very interesting things: veteran fighters with countless years of experience are still capable of evolving and remaining relevant, and the new breed of uber athletic fighters are every bit as frightening as their physique’s and potential ceilings would indicate. From the rejuvenation of Dan Henderson, to the otherworldly resilience of Frankie Edgar to the mesmerizing performances offered forth from Jon Jones, it’s been a great year for mixed martial arts, and these three particular men not only turned heads, but turned in remarkable years that command acknowledgement.

True Villans Of Mixed Martial Arts

Posted on 26 December 2011 by Last Ronin

A Look At MMA’s Bad Guy’s

In this sport, there are guys who act “bad”, which I can only chalk up to an attempt to intimidate potential foes, and then there are guys who truly are bad. And I don’t mean bad as in synonymous with tough, I mean bad as in synonymous with vile, despicable human beings. We’re talking guys who will break every rule in the book to win inside the cage (including a razor blade inside the UFC MMA gloves), and break every rule outside of the cage just for entertainment value. Some may call them antagonists, some may call them heels, I keep it real simple and call them as I see them: these are the villains of MMA.

Ultimate Martial Arts Training By Kim Jong-il’s Bodyguards

Posted on 22 December 2011 by Tony Hackerott

Unless you have been under a rock it is likely you have heard about the death of North Korea’s leader Kim Jong-il. Although he was a very strange leader and had strange personal habits he always took his safety very seriously. He demanded that he have the toughest and most skilled bodyguards who trained all their waking hours to protect the eccentric leader.

Everything To Lose

Posted on 20 December 2011 by Dennis Fratella

We’ve all seen the previews. We know how big they are. We know what’s at stake. I’m not going to focus on the styles or match-ups yet. I could write on this forever. But rather, I want to echo the previous post, “UFC Heavyweight Fight: Lesnar vs. Overeem“, and add my own $.02 if I may, on the possibilities that may be facing the heavyweight division after this all goes down on December 30th.
