One more time for MMA Beat. Topics: CM Punk, jilted Rory, lawsuit, Reebok, lamentable 2014 and Luke.
And so this is Christmas.....
Some thoughts on the UFC antitrust suit (as well as Jon Fitch's ability to summon the wind).
Nothing drowsier than law speak.
Steve Mazzagatti never going to live down the 12-to-6 elbows that cost Jon Jones his perfect record.
One more time for the columns this weekend. TUF 20/Rose-Rousey (http://t.co/Gd78LRoyqz) and UFC on FOX 13/nutsoid (http://t.co/GfsHfWArsv).
Stipe Miocic, JDS, the Superstition Mountains and the lucky number 13.
Imagine if Palhares fought in the UFC.
For now if Anthony Pettis is going to get got, might have to be RDA doing the getting.
I had it 48-47 for JDS, but could have seen it 48-47 Miocic. The 49-46 score seems too....definitive for this fight.
What a gutsy performance from JDS. Was losing, hurt, bruised, purple, bleeding, and yet he still got it done late.
I do feel like Jon Jones and Daniel Cormier has the potential to be a pretty good fight.
I know Lewis is coming off a loss, but Derrick Lewis and Alistair Overeem next.
Is there a hole in the roof at the arena for the Fan Man from Bowe-Holyfield to parachute in? Feels like that kind of show.
Lot of Koganing going on tonight. People getting Koganed left and right.
If UFC can't forgive Paul Daley enough to bring him back, Claudia Gadelha might have just begun her journey into exile.
Uh-oh....somebody might have just Paul Daley'd.
Jedrzejczyk. I'm serious this time. Without Poland z's would fall off end of the alphabet like Pluto did The Solar System.
All that work to get back after run of addiction, Bellator and self-inflicted gunshot wound just to have that happen. Tough luck, Joe Riggs.
Bummer for Brunson. Hope it wasn't the steak tartare.
Saturday morning column (with mention of Elvis, and how Rose Namajunas was never going to be the next Ronda Rousey).
Good for the cats at Team Oyama.
I have it 20-18 for Esparza through two rounds...
I wonder if walking out to "Harvester of Sorrow" is a nod to straw in general?
Would have liked to see Oliveira try and set up a submission in that first round.
I know he's from Detroit, but Cruickshank always looks like he's enjoying the hell out of some tractor or other.
But...she's...she's Our Majesty.
Still time to get Aisling Daly on the Irish-heavy Boston card, yeah? (Yeah).
Henry Cejudo just stood in admirably against his greatest foe (the scale). Now he gets to fight.
When a good writer (from civilization) happens upon the world of MMA, you get gems like this one by
Got to love Teddy Atlas.
My 2014 fighter of year noms: Matt Brown, Nik Lentz*, Matt Brown, & The Immortal one. This is tough! (*Thinking of swapping for Matt Brown)
If we're playing fair, CM Punk does have a very pure, particularly untouched-seeming nose.
You know who would be an obvious choice for that Valentine's Day card in Broomfield, CO? This guy. #Love #Cupid #etc
Here are some thoughts on Joe Rogan's talk with Brendan Schaub.
Hmm, that's not like Diaz. I'm worried. RT
Nate Diaz missed his scheduled open workout slot today. No official reason given.
Spoke to American Top Team's Dan Lambert, who has about 90 old pro wrestling belts (and finally a very new UFC one).
Soon it will slip into the Internet ether, so here's my Pettis column one more time just for (Showtime) kicks.
Anthony Pettis is good (and I didn't even mention the Showtime Kick until 600-word mark).
to introduce himself from Cheerios just to stir some shit up.
Lawler lost to Lorenz Larkin not all that long ago in a different org. What a turnaround. Did anybody truly ever see that coming?
Walk-off KO for Samman...he had his arms raised before Gordon hit the floor.
Holy god, Samman just scored what might be the KO of the year...
We didn't really think that a "Lazy Bones" would beat a fighter that beasts outside of actual time, did we? Anderson decisions Jones...
Cornerman Chris Leben just told Justin Jones that Beastin 25/8 is scared of his hands. This seems possible.
Anytime you "beast" 25/8, well, that's noteworthy.
It took Evans-Smith a few seconds to stir after that bulldog choke. Wow. But she was smiling soon after waking up.
The Pennington people aren't as loud as the Hobar people, but they're still getting spittle all over us on press row with their yelling.
A good nickname for Sergio Pettis would be "HBO" right? I mean right? Or "Starz?"
Either Hobar has the most loyal half dozen fans in the galaxy, or there's a pack of people with a large bet on him here at Mandalay.
