My overall MMA prediction record stands at 130-75 (63.4%) and 16-5 (76.2%) in main events. I felt that after having a fairly successful night at UFC 107, where I went 10-1 (90.9%), I should get one more card in for 2009. Of course, that meant choosing between WEC 45 and Strikeforce: Evolution, both of which […]

Former longtime UFC welterweight champion Matt Hughes (43-7) has made good on his promise to fight exclusively in interesting matches, agreeing to a match with BJJ legend Renzo Gracie (13-6-1) at UFC 112 (April 10th, 2010). The fight will take place in the opulent, futuristic city of Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates. There […]

My overall prediction record was battered a bit by UFC 105 and 106, but all I can do now is dust myself off and try to learn from my mistakes. With that in mind, I am here to breakdown the main card of Saturday’s T.U.F. 10 Live Finale. My overall prediction record now stands at […]

In several ways, King Of The Cage: Catalyst was a long night for Vernon B.C.’s MMA fans. The card itself, which featured thirteen fights, did not end until nearly midnight.

MMA remains unsanctioned in Vancouver and Victoria, but that hasn’t stopped a growing number of B.C. fighters from competing. This Saturday’s King Of The Cage: Catalyst (Nov. 28th), scheduled for Vernon’s Westbild Centre, provides these determined professional and amateur athletes with an opportunity to shine. In fact, in most cases, both fighters in any given […]

Citizens of Vernon have another great reason to arrive on time for King Of The Cage: Catalyst this Saturday– his name is Tyson Veitch.  Veitch is a local high school student and he will be appearing in his second amateur fight at the top of the under card. Competing in such an established and respected […]

After going 3-1 with my predictions for last week’s Strikeforce card, including correctly picking Fedor Emelianenko to finish Brett Rogers, my overall MMA prediction record now stands at 109-60 (64.5%) and 13-4 (76.5%) in main events. Anyone interested in a complete record of my prediction history can email a request anytime to bcmmafan@gmail.com. Not that […]

In a recent press release, the Canadian Amateur Combat Sports Council (CACSC) announced ambitious plans to hold a first-ever National Championships of Amateur MMA .

MMA returns to network television this Saturday (Nov. 7th) for the first time in over a year. The last live MMA fight to grace the mainstream airwaves ended early when Seth Petruzelli finished “Kimbo Slice” in just fourteen seconds. Since that time, EliteXC has gone belly up, but CBS remains fully committed to broadcasting MMA. […]
