By Vinnie Franklin Last Saturday, it was settled. Jon “Bones” Jones held onto that UFC Light Heavyweight Title against the formidable Rashad Evans, bringing him to the record of 17-1. The next opponent for this guy is Dan Henderson, a good fighter, but I don’t think that Jones will go to bed, hiding under the [...]

By Vinnie Franklin The former Strikeforce champ, Alistair Overeem produced a positive test for a testosterone to epitestosterone ratio urine test, which put him way over the legal limit and put his future in the UFC in jeopardy.

By Vinnie Franklin My oh my, perhaps my pick for his fight with Carlos Condit would have been correct had he not been smoking that grass prior to the fight. Weed gets you nowhere Diaz. Didn’t you see any of those public service commercials about drugs? Diaz was disgusted with the verdict in the Condit [...]
By Antwyn Jackson Diego Sanchez and Jake Ellenberger are slated to square off at UFC on Fuel TV 1 on February 15th. They highlight a card that doesn’t have a lot of star power, but mark my words; these are the cards that often provide the most fireworks. Plus it’s free, can’t beat that. All [...]
By Antwyn Jackson Pride Veteran and Former UFC Light Heavyweight Champion, Rampage Jackson faces former TUF winner, Ryan Bader at UFC 144. In what is a home away from home type of homecoming for Rampage, (as he fight in Japan often during his Pride FC days) he looks to get back in the win column [...]
By Vinnie Franklin Jon Jones will defend his UFC Light Heavyweight title against Rashad Evans at UFC 145. It’s no surprise and it’s not a surprise that it is the main event either. This throwdown showdown will take place in Atlanta on April 21st and it will not be an April fool’s trick when these [...]
By Vinnie Franklin Being right 97% of the time with my predictions is a great thing, but there is always that 3% that comes back and bites me and it happened last night at UFC 143. Nick Diaz faced off with Carlos Condit for the UFC interim welterweight title. The winner will face the injured [...]
By Vinnie Franklin Everyone wants to know Franklin’s Pick for the fight tonight between the bad boy, Nick Diaz and Carlos Condit. Well, you have two guys that are ready to throw down and we could very well see a knockout here considering their striking ability. So what happens? Where do you put your money [...]
By Antwyn Jackson This Saturday, we finally get to see a welterweight championship bout. Georges St. Pierre may be in attendance but he won’t be in the cage. Carlos Condit (who was scheduled to fight GSP at UFC 137) will fight Nick Diaz (who was also scheduled to fight GSP at UFC 137) for the [...]
By Antwyn Jackson (Managing Editor’s Note: Antwyn Jackson is our newest Feature Writer here at RSR. I, along with the rest of the crew welcome him aboard!) At UFC on FOX 2, Rashad Evans finally stamped his ticket to fight Jon Jones at UFC 145 this coming April. The long awaited and long talked about [...]
By Vinnie Franklin I sat back and watched Rashad Evans struggle with Phil Davis on Saturday night. The guy is a good striker and Davis was no cupcake, but when you consider the superb abilities of Jon Jones, it’s hard to imagine Evans being the guy that will stop his run in the UFC. Jon [...]
By Vinnie Franklin Alistair Overeem is the #1 Contender for the UFC Heavyweight Title. His big win over Brock Lesnar in the very first round has made him “the man,” even though the guy doesn’t have that title around his waist at the moment. Brock Lesnar ran his course and now the new king is [...]
