Law is a dirty game. Just from a cursory look at lawsuit there are things untrue & twisted. Not that other side's legal team won't do same.
on Tuesday
Interesting note that one of the plaintiff's attorneys is Rob Maysey (@mmafa) who has been publicly pushing for a fighter's union for years.
on Tuesday
Here's the class-action lawsuit filed today against UFC in US District Court http://t.co/7sj8GEZxFy
on Tuesday
Today could very well be a watershed day in MMA history. Unfortunately it will take a lot of ugly, dragged-out legal action to find out.
on Sunday
Turned out ok! RT @mbretosESPN: Another pick for #Manziel. Cleveland sports hasn't seen debut this poor since Ricky Vaughn took the mound.
on Sunday
Grappling with Palhares: "I'm good ... I'm good ... I'm good ... I'm good ... F#%*!!!"
last week
Also true RT @DetroitMarine76 And a courageous effort by Stipe ... he did not back down from the "second" best HW
last week
Even if you disagree with 49–46 (I do), you can agree ... courageous effort from JDS. Good on him. #UFC
last week
49-46 for JDS? what?
last week
Amen RT @mmaencyclopedia: There is a lot of courage on display in the UFC Octagon right now.
last week
Stipe looks mostly out of gas. He needs to recover between rounds here. JDS is back in the fight. #UFC
last week
The gauntlet has been thrown. Main event time. Who you got? #UFC
last week
I gotta say, I never really saw Rafael dos Anjos coming. Wasn't impressed with his first few UFC fights in '08–09. He's come a long way.
last week
See UFC fans, our sport isn't the only one that only sporadically enforces rules. #TravelMuch? https://t.co/maHBYwH99D
last week
Jeremy Stephens mostly resembles a dude trying to free himself from a swarm of bees. Fend off one attack, the next follows.
last week
Go big or go home. RT @DannStupp: Well, Davis Douglas weighed 169.6 for his lightweight bout at WSOF 16. Could've been worse, Nate.
last week
That about covers it RT @MikeCies: #NateDiaz says FU to #Reebok uniforms, FU to @CMPunk & FU to making weight lol hardcore #UFCPhoenix #UFC
last week
So I'm very grateful to @JoeRogan for bringing up that humanistic side of fandom. I think it gets lost in the electricity of what MMA can be
last week
The more you learn and hear about brain trauma, does it affect the way you watch? There's no question I have some conflict about it, too.
last week
Some (many?) of us go through the same conflict at times. I love a lot about MMA, but damn, you have to have compassion for the athletes.
last week
He said as he gets older and learns more about the damage fighters take in their career, it affects the way you view it.
last week
Nearly lost in the recent Schaub/Rogan exchange was Rogan wondering how much longer he'd commentate, based upon his conflict of watching MMA
last week
Started listening to the Rogan/Schaub conversation from yesterday. Riveting stuff. Couldn't have been easy for JR to say or BS to hear.
last week
Good luck with the move RT @marc_raimondi: Today is my last day as a New York City resident.
last week
Wow! Congrats! RT @arielhelwani: Official: Robbie Lawler wins via split decision. New champion.
last week
I picked Lawler in the rematch, who you got ? #UFC181
last week
Who you got tonight? Pettis-Melendez? Hendricks-Lawler? Gimme Pettis & Lawler. @Browny203
last week
Missing UFC 181 tonight. Out with friends, say hello to @Browny203, would you?
last week
That's what's up. RT @Browny203: Tie up bitch @MikeChiappetta http://t.co/Zu5N7BzdpU
last week
Binge-listened most of @Serial yesterday. Anybody else check it out? Pretty riveting stuff.
last week
Re: UFC/Reebok deal, media should not determine rankings when it directly correlates to fighter pay. Period.
last week
This is without a doubt THE highlight of 2014 in MMA https://t.co/6xifQolC4u
last week
May your feasts be bountiful, your football exciting, your family tolerable & your hangovers mild. That about covers it. Happy Thanksgiving.
last week
When you hear "arrested at a Taco Bell drive-thru," you know there's gonna be a great mugshot involved. Check. http://t.co/m7OA5r9Yjg
last week
This is an interesting story about how analytics shape the music you're hearing (and are going to hear in the future) http://t.co/0TfNFSyXKP
last week
I love this conversation between Jerry Seinfeld & Wale http://t.co/jimXFRGZcu
last week
The time is ... not now.
last week
UFC announces they'll have 45 events in 2015. So no pullback on schedule, as expected.
last week
Fight culture mostly looks down on the practice, but coaches/trainers need to seriously think about their role in the corner past strategy.
last week
In the wake of the report on Dennis Munson's death, here's a story I wrote last year on corners throwing in the towel http://t.co/GXhNyYcnnD
last week
This GIF of Leslie Smith's ear exploding is absolutely gross but I know you'll click anyway http://t.co/1tCW4OeCse (ht: @mmaencyclopedia)
last week
Just another example of how competition is great for the sport. So welcome to the party, revamped Bellator. Good night everyone.
last week
This was probably the most fun night of MMA since Shogun-Hendo I and Chandler-Alvarez I were on the same night back in Nov. '11.
last week
The Bellator jitters just got to Bonnar tonite. That's all.
last week
And for his grand finale, Fabricio Werdum will thank fans in 47 different languages.
last week
A UFC PPV done in less than 2 hours. Sweet. And just in time for Ortiz-Bonnar. Oh come on, you know you're watching!
last week
A damn rough ending for Hunt's title quest. But good on Werdum, a onetime UFC washout who rededicated himself & revitalized his career.
last week
Everything is stacked against him. But everything has been stacked against him, and he got here. One more rung of the ladder. #UFC180
last week
If Mark Hunt wins ... most improbable UFC champ ever? Probably so. UFC didn't even want him. But short prep time, big weight cut, elevation.
last week
Four straight first-round finishes on UFC 180 main card. What say you, Messrs. Werdum & Hunt? Big fellas ain't gonna go long, are they?
