JON JONES IN WORLD OF TROUBLE (more…)San Francisco, CA- The story of UFC light heavyweight (205 lb.) champion Jon Jones fleeing from the scene of an early Sunday morning car wreck has evolved as the Albuquerque Police say they are seeking a Felony "Hit and Run" warrant. The Felony is applied because the other party suffered a broken arm, this could mean prison time. JONES FLED, RETURNED, FLED AGAIN Jones has a residence in Albuquerque and the APD say they have went to his home, called his attorney, the UFC, nobody is giving up Jones, his whereabouts, nada. After the crash, Jones ran away, came back to supposedly stash some cash in his drawers, and then fled again. This according to wittnesses, said to include an off duty cop. YESTERDAY A MISDEMEANOR, TODAY A FELONY Thought to still be in New Mexico, the police have changed the allegations as yesterday they were saying it was a Misdemeanor. Today, they've changed their tune and are seeking the aforementioned Felony warrant on Jones, the UFC's premier male fighter. JON HAS LOTS OF ISSUES In the last five months, Jones has failed a drug test (Cocaine) and at the same time and test had the Testosterone level of an 85-year old man. Does he look 85 to you? There was also the 24-hour stint in rehab after the Coke admmission. FORGET ABOUT JONES-JOHNSON @ UFC 187
10/2/1980 FIGHT A RING DEATH TO MANY (more…)San Francisco, CA- The overweight man you see with a mustache here is Muhammad Ali in the late summer of 1980. After a two year hiatus from boxing, this after besting Leon Spinks in a 1978 rematch, promoter Don King (only eight years into promoting) convinced Muhammad to come back and fight unbeaten World heavyweight champion Larry Holmes on October 2, 1980, 34 years ago today. Actually, Ali didn't need much convincing as DK was offering him $8 million reasons to fight again. CHAMPION WAS SECOND FIDDLE HERE A former sparring partner of Ali, Larry can be seen beating Ali up in a Deer Lake, PA training session in the movie, "Ali: Brains, Skill, & Guts," taped in 1974 as Ali prepped for his "Rumble in The Jungle" with George Foreman. Holmes, AKA "The Easton Assassin" was 31 years young and 35-0, 26 KOs. NO IN THE HOUSE PAY PER VIEW
UFC FIGHT NIGHT ON FOX WAS SOLID! (more…)Los Angeles, CA- In the main event of UFC Fight Night: Brown vs. Silva from the U.S. Bank Arena in Cincinnati, OH, welterweight (170 lbs.) Matt Brown (19-11) continued his recent string of knockouts with a TKO over Erick Silva (16-5-0-1) at 2:11 of round three. It was a pretty dominant performance from Brown, who was able to stifle the offense of the explosive Silva throughout. This win moves Brown closer to the crack at the title in a very loaded welterweight division. Silva, who is now 4-4 in the UFC, may be forced to continue his career in another organization. SEMI-MAIN EVENT ENDS EARLY AS WELL! In the co-feature, middleweight (185) Costas Phillippou (13-4-1) knocked out Lorenz Larkin (14-3-1) just 3:37 seconds into the very first round. Both men landed some nice shots, but in the end, Phillippou was able to drop Larkin with a hard left hook that sealed the deal. I thought Larkin might just be good enough to best Costas who appeared to be on the way down, but Phillippou proved he has fight left in him. DARON CRUICKSHANK SHINES UNDERNEATH On the undercard, lightweight (155) Daron Cruickshank

BROCK LESNAR RETURNS AFTER HAVING SURGERY & LAYOFF (more…)LESNAR NEEDS WIN OR HE'S DONE? San Francisco, CA- The Ultimate Fighting Championship go tonight (Friday) on PPV with UFC 141 from Las Vegas, NV. Not Saturday, but tonight at 7 PM PT Zuffa Sports, the UFC's parent company, gets a little "risky" with one of their incredible draws Brock Lesnar going against Alistair Overeem, a fighter with a 6'5 frame and 256 pounds. We know Lesnar, a half inch shorter, cuts 20 lbs. to weigh the 265 heavyweight limit Thursday and will weight about 285 come fight time. If Lesnar gets beat here, I'm sure they'd find another fight for him, but his value on PPV and overall would plummet. WILL OVEREEM'S KNEES STEAL THE SHOW?

FREE FOX TV PUTS UFC HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMP CAIN VELASQUEZ VS JR. DOS SANTOS ON MANNY PACQUIAO-JUAN M. MARQUEZ PPV DATE
It's been nearly 13 years at an event called 'Ultimate Brazil,' since the UFC has been in the uncrowned birthplace of what we now know as Mixed Martial Arts. At that time the city was Sao Paolo, but this time the UFC is pulling out all the stops and are going to Rio de Janeiro. A card laden heavy with Brazilian fighters, probably the greatest of them all Anderson 'The Spider' Silva tops the bill. "THE SPIDER" HAS ALL THE TOOLS FOR MMA SUPREMACY Silva (30-4, 17 KO's, 6 subs), the current UFC middleweight (185 lbs.) champion, will defend that title against #1 contender Yushin 'Thunder' Okami (26-5, 9 KO's 4 subs) in a rematch of a fight that took place over five years ago in another organization. In that fight, Okami won a technical disqualification due to what was deemed to be an illegal kick by Silva. I doubt the same will happen here as I anticipate Silva will dominate his formidable challenger. OKAMI HAS PLENTY OF WEAPONS IN HIS MMA ARSENAL This is not to say that Okami doesn't have a chance; he is a strong wrestler, which many believe is the formula needed to defeat Silva, ala Chael Sonnen's near flawless performance last year. He also has a very strong chin as of his five losses, only one has come via KO and that was early in his career back in 2003. However, in Silva he's fighting arguably the number one fighter in the world. As a matter of fact, that DQ loss to Okami was Silva's last. SILVA IS A "LIVING" MMA LEGEND! (more…)
UFC FIGHT NIGHT IN PHILLY WAS ELECTRIC Bethlehem, PA- Literally 30 minutes before the first fight of UFC 133 and you can feel the electricity in the air here at The Wells Fargo Center in the City of Brotherly Love. Whether in Philadelphia, Las Vegas or Rio de Janeiro, where they'll be in three weeks, the Ultimate Fighting Championships, better known as the UFC, delivers excitement like no other sporting event in the 21st century. PRELIMS WERE ALL GOING THE DISTANCE That of course was before the fights actually started, so the question is did it actually deliver? Early on during the prelims, it looked as though the answer was going to be no as fight after fight kept ending in lackluster decisions. However, as the night progressed, so did the action and by the time we got to the main card, the action was full throttle, the adrenaline was flowing and the crowd was like a ticking bomb waiting to go off. Now the big question was, did the main event deliver? EVANS & ORTIZ HAD FOUGHT TO A DRAW PREVIOUSLY (more…)
