The Ultimate Fighter – Season 12, The Ultimate Finale

You know what is really annoying? You spend three months watching and chronicling these fights, then, the night of the big finale, the main event goes over the DVR assigned time limit and you lose six and half minutes of the final fight. That's right, I didn't actually see the end of the second or … Continue reading The Ultimate Fighter – Season 12, The Ultimate Finale

The Ultimate Fighter – Season 12, Episode 11

  For the life of me I can't figure out why this episode has to be two hours. I mean, combined, the fights are 30 minutes.  That's an hour and a half of filler.  Is there really that much left unresolved that we need to see the ousted fighters banter for that long? Nope. I'm … Continue reading The Ultimate Fighter – Season 12, Episode 11

Marc Stevens comes into the fight as a controversial pick.  Aaron "English" Wilkinson not so much. Things get off to a rough start as Josh Koscheck once again gets into a verbal … Continue reading The Ultimate Fighter – Season 12, Episode 8

UFC 123: Rampage vs. Machida Predictions

Quinton "Rampage" Jackson vs. Lyoto Machida Bruce: I'm picking Machida. Why? Simple. Matt has an unnatural mancrush on Rampage so I KNOW he's going to pick him. I'm picking against just to do so. Let's see how I do. Want more science? Machida beat Rashad Evans in May 2009. Rashad Evans beat Rampage in May … Continue reading UFC 123: Rampage vs. Machida Predictions
