WHO REPLACES KEITH KIZER ON NEVADA COMMISSION?

March 27th, 2014 By Pedro Fernandez

NEVADA BOXING & MMA HEAD JOB UP FOR GRABS

Keith Kizer

Keith Kizer

San Francisco, CA- The Executive Officer of the Nevada State Athletic Commission is the position that Keith Kizer recently relinquished. The one he got from Marc Ratner who followed the late Chuck Minker in what maybe the most powerful position today in boxing and MMA.

KEITH KIZER & HIS TIME AS BOSS

As for Keith Kizer, some question his boxing acumen while I think overall he’s done a pretty good job. The only real knock I can give KK was his backing judge CJ Ross‘ after her atrocious 6-6 card after the Floyd Mayweather shutout of Canelo Alvarez. The passing on the KK watch of Testosterone Replacement Therapy, which just weeks ago was dumped by the Nevada Commission, was a mistake.

KIZER NOT AGAINST RANDOM DRUG TESTING

His stepping up and putting random testing in Alistair Overeem’s application for an MMA license in Nevada and then catching him “dirty” on Steroids leading to an almost one-year suspension, things like this went unnoticed. Over the years I’ve found KK always to be professional and oh-so super sensitive.

ONE OF THESE MEN WILL BE “THE MAN”

Introduction

LYOTO MACHIDA IS THE DRAGON OF UFC

February 24th, 2014 By Zak Attack

MACHIDA A HUGE THREAT TO CHRIS WEIDMAN?

Lyoto "The Dragon" Machida

Lyoto “The Dragon” Machida


Los Angeles, CA- In the main event of UFC Fight Night 36 from Brazil last week, Brazilian middleweight (185 lb.) contender Lyoto “The Dragon” Machida (21-4, 13-4 UFC) likely secured his spot for the next shot at the belt with a convincing win over the very talented Gegard Mousasi (34-4-2, 1-1 UFC). Mousasi was game throughout but simply fought a better man.

“THE DRAGON” WAS BREATHING FIRE!

Machida showcased his full mixed martial arts arsenal, landing kicks, punches, elbows, takedowns, and getting the former Strikeforce champion in some very compromising situations on the ground. Overall, this was a very impressive performance form Machida, in what was deservedly the fight of the night. It was a tactical battle that answered all questions about Lyoto’s legitimacy as a middleweight contender. He is here to give champion Chris Weidman (11-0, 7-0 UFC) a serious run for his money.

SEMI MAIN EVENT WAS A SNOOZER!

In the co-main event, fellow Brazilian middleweight Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza (20-3-0-1, 3-0 UFC) got the decision nod over Francis Carmont (22-8, 6-1 UFC) in a fairly mediocre fight. Carmont exposed some serious holes in Souza’s striking game that have me thinking he does not beat the best of the best. I expected Carmont to be the one pushing for grappling, but he was the one engaging on the feet while Souza was concerned with taking the fight to the ground.

UFC ON BIG FOX NETWORK SATURDAY

January 24th, 2014 By Zak Attack

Pedro Fernandez & Benson Henderson

Pedro Fernandez & Benson Henderson

UFC ON FOX EXPECTS “STRONG” TV NUMBERS

Los Angeles, CA- The Ultimate Fighting Championships returns to Big FOX this Saturday with lightweight (155) action in the main event between former titlist Ben Henderson (19-3, 7-1 UFC) and Josh Thompson (20-5, 3-1 UFC). These two contenders will swap leather at the United Center in Chicago, IL in a fight with likely title implications. Though current lightweight (155 lb.) king Anthony Pettis (17-2, 4-1 UFC) seems to have Bendo’s number, I think he likely beats Thompson here. Josh certainly has a shot, but I think Ben has more experience against top-level opposition and that will show on Saturday night.

HEAVYWEIGHTS IN SEMI MAIN

On the FOX undercard, heavyweights Gabriel Gonzaga (16-7, 11-6 UFC) and Stipe Miocic (10-1, 4-1 UFC) clash in a nice heavyweight (265 limit) battle. Gonaga is a vet who has looked good as of late and I think he beats Miocic here. Lightweight Donald Cerrone (21-6, 8-3 UFC) looks to claw his way into an eventual crack at the UFC belt against Adriano Martins (25-6, 1-0 UFC). I’m leaning towards Cerrone because of his overall balance as a fighter, but you just never know with the guy. Sometimes he looks good, other times he loses badly. Featherweight (145) Darren Elkins (17-3, 7-2 UFC) will mix it up with Jeremy Stevens (22-9, 9-8 UFC). I favor Stevens in this one by a slim margin.

IS THE UFC ROSTER STRONG STILL?

San Francisco, CA- “Ring Talk Worldwide,” the longest running fight show in history, 29+ years, featured in the UFC/MMA hour writer “Zak Attack” Young. We talked about the UFC being in transition with the retirement of both Georges St. Pierre (voluntary) and Anderson Silva (involuntary). And Zak doesn’t think for a minute that “The Spider” can come back at 38 after being knocked out cold and then having UFC champ Chris Weidman break Silva’s leg with a defensive move using his knee. Urijah “The California Kid” Faber and Ronda Rousey’s next fights were also discussed.

CHRIS WEIDMAN-RONDA ROUSEY WIN BIG AT UFC 168

December 28th, 2013 By Pedro Fernandez

OBITUARY OF ANDERSON SILVA IN PRINT

Look At Anderson Silva's Broken Leg!

Look At Anderson Silva’s Broken Leg!

San Francisco, CA- When Muhammad Ali stepped in with Larry Holmes in 1980, it was a 38-year old former champion faced a young tiger with whom he had no chance. Fast forward to 2013 and UFC legend Anderson Silva met Chris Weidman. Just like Ali, Silva didn’t look like he could pull the trigger that night.

WEIDMAN SHOWED FIRST FIGHT NO FLUKE!

Hurt a number of times by punches, elbows and forearms, Silva made it out of the first round, as did Weidman who was either stunned or gassed after the first five-minute round and looked confused. Still the round went 10-9 for Weidman.

SILVA’S LEG SNAPPED LIKE A TWIG!

The second round was somewhat uneventful until the 38-year old Silva threw a kick at Weidman who blocked it in such a manner that it broke Silva’s leg, like in half at the calf. Ugly, gruesome, call it what you want, Silva was done as far as the fight was concerned and his career is over period! Nobody comes back from an injury like that at his age.
