Let’s make one thing clear I do not like Michael Bisping. He is a disturbing, pompous jerk and that is on a good day. He is the type of person who says what is on his mind but the moment you call him on his crap he will tell you you’re out of line. But make no mistake about it Saturday night, although the scorecards don’t reflect it, Michael Bisping won.
Bisping won on many levels but the most important thing he won last night was respect. Many of his critics will tell you he is at least top ten. With his performance last night tells me is he is the best middleweight in the world not called Anderson Silva. Sonnen looked flat and outside of the takedowns looked very weak. Bisping looked a lot stronger than Sonnen and ..click here to read more

It was a bitter sweet night for the UFC when it comes to UFC on Fox 2 results. On the bright side, they got the right winners for their future UFC money matches. On the downside, they probably won’t have many new viewers the next time out on Fox after tonight’s grinding broadcast.
The UFC took advantage of new viewers and publicity with their first FOX broadcast and delivered expected fireworks. Unfortunately for a show that needed to follow that momentum, they came up real small tonight in Chicago. Three decision fights with very little fire power may have stalled any momentum from the first broadcast right in its place.
Let me be clear as an MMA fan, I enjoyed most of the night. Yet even I couldn’t find much redemption in the opening fight. As ..click here to read more

It has been a whirlwind of activity lately for the world’s largest Mixed Martial Arts promotion. The UFC continues to start 2012 with a roar of activity this weekend with their return to network television as the UFC presents UFC on FOX 2 from Chicago, Illinois. The main card features a trio of fights, capped off by Light Heavyweight and Middleweight title eliminator bouts. A late injury to former main event fighter Mark Munoz caused some card-shuffling, but many would argue that this has only made the card more exciting with more marketable bouts.
In the main event of the evening “Sugar” Rashad Evans continues his never-ending quest towards former teammate and UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Jon Jones when he takes on Phil “Mr. Wonderful” Davis. The co-main event of the evening sees a battle between two ..click here to read more

The UFC is shaking things up in a big way for their UFC on FOX 2 special. The co-headliner has been changed due to injury and fans will now get a fight they can sink their teeth into as Chael Sonnen vs. Michael Bisping will finally take place with a big reward for the winner.
News broke yesterday that Mark Munoz is hurt and had to pull out of the event. That is terrible news for Munoz who in my opinion, had a great shot of not only beating Chael Sonnen, but actually beating Anderson Silva. What I think doesn’t make a bit of difference here because it will be awhile before we ever find out whether those are true statements, if we ever find out at all.
Now the UFC gets to promote a grudge ..click here to read more

Remember how excited you got when you read that WWE champion CM Punk would walk UFC fighter Chael Sonnen out to the cage on the live UFC on Fox 2 broadcast? Well unfortunately it was all for nothing as Punk will not be walking to the cage with Mr. Sonnen.
According to several reports that broke on Saturday, CM Punk confirmed that he will not be walking out with Chael Sonnen for his fight against Mark Munoz. According to the reports, it was Vince McMahon who made the call to pull the plug on the festivities. McMahon reportedly informed Punk last week that he would not be allowed to make the appearance.
The timeline for the course of events is rather odd. Punk reportedly got off from the company the night of a house show specifically to walk ..click here to read more

Arguably the best talker in pro wrestling will be teaming up with the best talker in MMA on national television. WWE champion CM Punk will accompany UFC star Chael Sonnen to the ring at his upcoming fight on Fox television.
The news broke last night as Chael Sonnen revealed that Punk would be accompanying him for his fight against Mark Munoz on January 28. Punk was given off for the night and will miss his scheduled date in Evansville, IN for the gig.
The original reports indicated that Punk would be in Sonnen’s corner. A new report states that Punk will only walk out with the self proclaimed UFC middleweight champion in Chicago.
I am really not quite sure what to make of this deal yet. It is fantastic publicity for the WWE, getting their champion in front of ..click here to read more
