Should The UFC Be Like Baseball?

Posted on 10 January 2012 by Tony Hackerott

Should The UFC Use A Minor League System Like MLB?

The other day a friend of mine and I were talking about the up and coming talent of the UFC and even though there are some good ones coming up there isn’t a lot of them. To fix this issue the UFC could start creating smaller organization throughout the U.S. to help raise, train, and harvest the best MMA fighters for the big show.

By Jillian Bullock

Although several MMA fighters, including Vitor Belfort, Kenny Florian, Lyoto Machida, Anderson Silva, Rich Franklin, Chris Leban, Cung Le, and Nick Diaz, fight as southpaws some of these guys were born a lefty and some are “deliberate southpaws.” They taught themselves to fight as southpaws because they found it to be an advantage to their mixed martial arts career.

5 Most Loved MMA Fighters

Posted on 03 January 2012 by Tony Hackerott

Over the last few decades we’ve seen some very polarizing personalities emerge in this sport. Some men choose to express themselves precisely as they would behind closed doors; some men opt to project specific images in the hopes of drawing more fan interest. The protagonist personality surfaces just as often as the antagonistic, but it seems the genuine individuals are the true crowd pleasers; even drunken fans can detect a bogus façade.

What Will This Year Hold In MMA & The UFC?

Posted on 01 January 2012 by Tony Hackerott

2011 was unquestionably one of the greatest years in the short existence of mixed martial arts. The UFC has continued to grow and expand, Bellator has begun to find a stable foothold and produce stars, and Strikeforce will continue to air on Showtime, handled as a completely separate entity from the UFC, despite the fact that Zuffa now owns the promotion. Although the Japanese scene continues to struggle, MMA has caught like wildfire in the United States, and only promises to reach more households worldwide as time unfolds, which could certainly see a turn-around for promotions based in Japan.

Most Shocking MMA Career Declines

Posted on 01 January 2012 by Tony Hackerott

We’ve played witness to some stunning career declines this year. Former champions have fallen left and right, while proposed “prospects” have run into brick walls when making the leap to the big leagues.

Here now, is a look at some of the most noteworthy career declines of 2011.

The Year’s Standout Personality

Posted on 01 January 2012 by Tony Hackerott

In a sport known for its excessive violence and countless alpha male personalities, it’s nice to discover a fighter who possesses a genuinely kind heart and endearing attitude away from the cage. It’s not the most common of occurrences, but it does happen every now and then, and one need only look to heavyweight champion Junior dos Santos for proof.
