By The Masked Hernandez I jumped on my Harley brother, driving 120 miles per hour man, until I reached NYC to hang out with my main man, the Big Apple, and talk about some rumors. It’s everywhere man. Brock Lesnar coming to the WWE…when, where, how? Is he going to stick with the UFC or [...]

By Sean Farrell Alistair Overeem is out against “Pezao” or as we in the U.S. call him “Bigfoot” Silva. Overeem has suffered a nagging toe injury and has decided that September was too soon to return to action and has been replaced by Daniel Cormier in the Strikeforce Heavyweight Grand Prix.
By Sean Farrell Well the UFC has finally met a roadblock and it only took one hundred and thirty-three PPV events to do so (133 events isn’t over a thousand fights or anything…Yes that is sarcasm). It looks like the UFC finally ran out of options. After a remorseless effort of shuffling in light heavyweights [...]
By Siri Karri In my humble opinion, I believe Rashad Evans’s career is in danger. Partially it’s his fault, and partially it’s the bizarre circumstances that seem to surround any fight card he is scheduled on. Now I never liked Rashad Evans; I hate anyone who is excessively arrogant and carries a disrespectful swagger before, [...]

By Siri Karri When it was announced that middleweights Brian Stann would fight Chael Sonnen, the MMA world waited with trepidation. Anyone who knows ANYONE about either fighter knows that trying to hype this fight is like to mixing oil and water. Brian Stann is a man who can do no wrong and say no [...]
By Sean Farrell Well I was having a hard time buying that UFC 132 could top that incredible night on Versus we just had, but man did it ever. After wasting over an hour of my afternoon watching that snooze-fest of a so called heavyweight title fight between Wladimir Klitschko and David Haye, I found [...]
By Siri Karri So, RSR readers may remember earlier that I said UFC 132 had HUGE expectations to live up to after the spectacular fights from UFC on Versus 4 just a week ago. Well, looks like $59.99 is a perfectly reasonable price to charge if you manage to put on a card like that. [...]
By Siri Karri After the spectacular showing at UFC on Versus 4, UFC 132 has a lot to live up to. For $59.99, it needs to top the jaw-dropping main event between Pat Barry and Cheick Kongo as well as the fights preceding it. Luckily, this card is filled to the brim with fighters who [...]

By Sean Farrell Well let’s get right too it… Dana White on Sunday night’s UFC Live on VS 4 broadcast said he was “Disgusted” at Nate Marquardt for his failed medical test before his scheduled headline bout with Rick Story. Today Marquardt spoke as to why after DAYS of silence. Apparently, Nate Marquardt and Chael [...]
By Sean Farrell Now as good as my Prelim results were, NOTHING on it topped the main card last night at UFC Live 4. With the release of Nate Marquardt following his “failed medicals”, the UFC promoted heavyweight sluggers Cheick Kongo and Pat Barry to the main event with all the pressure of carrying Sunday’s [...]
By Sean Farrell UFC Live 4 on Versus was INCREDIBLE…I for one have been highly critical of the UFC’s recent lackluster fight cards and last night made up for all of them. It wasn’t even the fact that this card was held in my hometown of Pittsburgh, it was simply the fact that EVERY fight [...]
By Siri Karri Ironically, even though the past two pay-per view cards had bigger stars and stacked line-ups, I can safely say that UFC on Versus 4 was better than all of them . . . and it was free. We had a major upset, a couple good decisions, and two sledgehammer knockouts. The little [...]
