For most folks, travelling halfway around the world to fight a highly ranked British fighter in his own backyard would be a serious challenge to consider – and that’s on top of the lousy weather. For Yves Jabouin, it’s more like a vacation. “Honestly, I welcome the opportunity to travel someplace new,” the Haitian-Canadian remarks. […]

Well, we’re only a couple days removed from “the most anticipated fight in UFC history” and the feeling among fans is…well, hard to put into words, really. UFC 148 was like going on the worst date ever with the most beautiful girl in the world. Yeah, she looks fantastic – but you have to endure […]

With the possible exception of this summer’s Batman vs. Bane “Gothamweight” battle, I haven’t looked forward to a fight more in 2012 than Anderson Silva vs. Chael Sonnen II. And I’m certainly not the only one who feels this way. Heck, Dana White said this fight was on track to do UFC 100-esque numbers on […]

Imagine if right now, this moment, you were told you were going to be in a fight. I know, I know – the internet tough guy immediately comes back with “Bro, dude, I fight all the time! I get in fights every day. I’m like a living legend on these streets. JUMP IN MY GUARD, […]

As a student of history, I’ve always been sadly amused by the many ways France found to screw up during the two World Wars. No, I’m not here to bash the French – unlike many in North America, I still remember a chubby little fellow named Napoleon Bonaparte, who was kicking a** and eating cheese […]

I can hear you sharpening the pitchforks already. Don’t lie. You read this title and thought “Oh good, another angry blogger complaining about something – time to bury this mofo in a deeper grave than Elite XC!” Even worse, this complaining comes on the heels of UFC 145 – the event that marked the triumphant […]

I have to admit, even with the announcement of a whopping three Canadian UFC events this year, even with the explosion of the sport in newly sanctioned provinces like Ontario and B.C (where MMA was always popular anyways), even with the growth of so many Canadian MMA promotions like Ringside, MFC, and The Score Fighting […]

We all remember the moment we first found out. The sinking feeling in our stomachs. The lumps forming in our throats. Fingers clenching into fists of rage – then extending once more, into digits of righteous keyboard manipulating fury (that sounds oddly like a “King Crimson” song title). Alistair Overeem had failed a random drug […]

We seem to be in a bit of a doldrums when it comes to combat sports news these days. Oh sure, there was the Bellator welterweight season opener on Friday, which was the usual brand of downright exciting with a dash of puzzling (what was Chris Lozano’s gameplan, anyways?) I’ve come to expect from Bellator […]

If you went back in time only a couple years and asked any MMA fan walking the streets what the dream match-up in MMA was, you’d likely get only one answer: Anderson Silva vs. Georges St-Pierre. And for years, this was the dream fight to end all dream fights. It was MMA’s equivalent to Manny Pacquiao […]
