on Sunday
Haven't seen most Oscar films but hoping Linklater wins for Boyhood just for his creative experimentation. Wait, there's fights on tonite?
last week
Lovely evening for the furnace to die. I shall soon attempt to make popsicles without use of a freezer.
last week
You know the winter's been brutal when it's 22 degrees and you catch yourself going, "Hmmm, not too bad out today."
last week
I wonder how many fight camps are thinking of moving their headquarters to places like North Korea or Somalia.
last week
Four-year ban for first offenders could be the standard. That is a very strong deterrent. Let's hope final plan reaches this original idea.
last week
UFC announces they'll institute year-round, out-of-competition PED testing through a 3rd party testing org starting 7/1. Good step.
last week
Damn. Will of a champ right there. Great effort from Bendo, such a veteran performance there.
last week
That was a veteran round from Bendo & should slow Thatch down for remainder of the fight. Anyone's to win.
last week
This pace should be no issue for Thatch. He can strike all day, Benson can only slow him by making it grueling & ugly with wrestling.
last week
Tired but stayed up 'til 1am for one match. I think Brandon Thatch is about to do work. Tell me I'm wrong.
last week
Benson is incredibly gutsy for taking this fight with all risk, little reward but this is gonna be a tough one for him to navigate.
last week
Brandon Thatch's wrestling is a huge ? mark but I can't see Bendo getting past his length with much success. BT too polished striking wise.
last week
The NBC Sports Network Twitter feed doesn't even bother to remind people WSOF is on. What does that say?
last week
Nah. RT @davedoylemma: Rashad Evans: Anthony Johnson will knock out Jon Jones within two rounds http://t.co/EXG1wRfoT5
last week
Just an FYI: UFC champ Ronda Rousey will be featured in the Sports Illustrated swimsuit edition when it's released in the coming days.
last week
I have a lot of great followers but this absolutely made my day! http://t.co/YMffIiGdRq
last week
In case you don't follow him, @latimespugmire is tweeting out feedback given to him by doctor who runs lab that did Anderson Silva's test.
last week
To clarify, I'm not saying assume every athlete is on PEDs. Just that when you look at a sporting event, playing field is tilted somewhere.
last week
So we're left with either abandoning sports or accepting the cat & mouse drug culture as an unwanted but perpetual part of sports.
last week
You can continue to fight the war on PEDs, but it will be endless. No side will ever "win."
last week
That may seem cynical, but we're dealing with imperfect humans. Some of them are going to make dumb decisions against their better judgment.
last week
As fans, we need to make peace w/the fact that every sporting event we watch is tainted by PEDs or drugs in some way. That's where we're at.
last week
2015 was supposed to be UFC's year. After a good start, things have gone from trending down (injuries) to crash (failed tests) in a flash.
last week
The man @ewillphoto RT @guicruzzz: I finally got the name of the man who shot that Silva-GSP pic I posted earlier today: Erick Williams.
last week
Wha??! RT @TheSavageTruth: Word on the street is Vitor would only take Munoz as a late replacement after Weidman pulled out due to injury.
last week
He did not just do that!!!!
last week
This is what we came for. Who you got? #SilvaDiaz
last week
Damn, Big Al boxed up an always-game Lauzon. Nice combos, lots of variety. Nice win there. That Ray Longo makes some strikers, huh?
last week
My "Helwani Nose" shirt, of course RT @arielhelwani: what you wearing though??
last week
You guys paint a terrifying picture of the UFC bar scene. But tonight is no night to be scared, homies. Off I go.
last week
Today's the first time I'm ever going to a bar to watch a UFC pay per view. What should I expect?
last week
I feel bad for Weidman getting injured again. He is really a great guy and champion. Didn't think Belfort had much of a shot though.
last week
The media is so dumb sometimes. I guess it's an echo chamber like many other institutions. Need to be better. Hey, how about Diaz-Silva?!
last week
Media parrots: "US consumes 325 million gallons of beer during Super Bowl." That's 16 beers for every man, woman & child, aka impossible.
last week
Ding dong, the witch is dead RT @nytimes: Breaking: Sheldon Silver to Be Replaced as NY Assembly Speaker Next Week http://t.co/mx2qWarNyT
last week
Incredible story. RT @MMAFighting: Sara McMann: Title fight against Rousey helped save my father’s life http://t.co/fuXttYcGm5
last week
Anyone at a grocery store on the east coast? Oh, everyone's at a grocery store on the east coast. Lines are 15 deep!
last week
Jones-Gustafsson is still the best fight I've witnessed in person so kinda bummed we won't see a rematch, but damn, AJ brings some heat.
last week
Ref: "Fight back Alex." Then he proceeds to let him take about 35 more blows. Jesus Christ man.
last week
As we wait for Rumble to make his bid to fight for the 205-pound belt, remember when he lost to longtime 155er Rich Clementi? What a sport.
last week
Main event time, who you got? I like Gustafsson here. I feel like Rumble has to win early, once we get past Rd 2, his power likely to fade.
last week
I wish Hendo would move on to his next career of starring in remade spaghetti westerns.
last week
Poor Mousasi seems to be snakebit in his UFC career. Even when he wins he gets no props.
last week
I've always liked watching Mousasi fight. I've always liked watching Dan Hendo fight. I hope it adds up to something great.
last week
I don't know if it's his interest in self-preservation that's holding him back or something else but Davis just never really lets it go.
last week
Phil Davis has some great physical tools but at this stage of his career it seems pretty obvious he's never going to be a fluid striker.
last week
The last 3 fights of tonight's UFC on FOX show should be worth your time (I got Davis, Mousasi & Gus). See you then?
last week
Flipping around... BJJ/MMA coach Lloyd Irvin is on tonight's Dateline NBC, case from a couple years ago, he helped catch a killer.
last week
Beginning of the end of Sheldon Silver in NY. And with it, MMA falls out of his noose. As they say, The time is now.
last week
Conor shattered the previous FS1 record, which was held on the channel's kickoff night (Shogun vs. Chael), which drew 1.7 million.
