We usually save our Biggest Winners and Biggest Losers columns for the pay per views. But based on some highlights—and especially lowlights—from Saturday’s TUF Finale, I think a few BW/BL’s are warranted.

The UFC threw a party for their 20th anniversary Saturday night and we were all invited, as was the entire UFC family. Grandpa Dan Severn sat around and bored us all with his “interesting” anecdotes; creepy Uncle Mark Coleman invaded our personal space and might have hit on a few of our nubile cousins; and we even had a wedding anniversary crasher roaming around aimlessly wearing one boxing glove—no one (more…)
UFC 167, the 20th anniversary celebration, had a big upset, an impressive comeback, and more drama than an after school special. If you weren’t shooting beer from your nose or choking on a chicken wing when the main event decision was read, you obviously finished eating and drinking earlier in the evening. Here’s a look back at the night’s biggest winners. (more…)
I was touting this event—on paper—for the past few weeks. Even the prelims were stacked with interesting fights—on paper. Problem is; ‘on paper’ means nothing. It probably wasn’t possible to live up to my expectations, but somehow UFC 166 did just that. (more…)
The stars at night were big and bright when UFC 166 was held deep in the heart of Texas. While there were fights almost as epic as the Battle of the Alamo, we also witnessed some guys take a beating like a cowboy trying to peddle New York City salsa. Everything is bigger in the Lone Star State including the losers.

Rounding out the list is a contender sitting in the front row; a fighter sitting on his couch; and a curious looking translator/interpreter who must have (more…)
We usually write an article on the Biggest Winners and Biggest Losers of each PPV event. If we were to write one about last night’s Fight Night, my “biggest winner” wouldn’t be Glover Teixeira. It would be Jacare Souza. Sure Teixeira earned a title shot with his 1st round knockout of Ryan Bader, but Souza might have done the same thing. And more impressively.
Souza has been known for most of his career as a grappler with top (more…)
You will always remember your first; well maybe a truck stop hooker high on meth wouldn’t remember but MMA fans will remember the first UFC event on Fox Sports 1. Fight Night 26 featured a stacked card with lots of exciting fights. It had all the excitement of a PPV event with a free price tag. Don’t expect this to happen often. We all know Dana is like a drug dealer, you get your first hit free and the next either (more…)
Me. With dueling travel schedules earlier in the week, Nicole and I were unable to post our official picks and predictions for this (more…)
