UFC 180: A Mediocre Road To Success.

Friday 14th November 2014

Any way you want to spin it, it's hard to find someone that isn't a Mark Hunt fan for some reason or another. Whether it's his incredible knockout power or his "rags to riches" MMA story, he is the type of not only fighter, but human being you simply have to love. But all love aside, sometimes you have to look into the mirror and be realistic about what you see. And this is the difficult part with...

UFC 181: 2014's UFC Measuring Stick?

Tuesday 21st October 2014

Despite the up and down year the UFC has had in regards to injuries and poor PPV ratings, the last few months of 2014 give the promotion the chance to possibly correct some "problems. Starting with UFC 179 this coming weekend, 4 UFC titles will be defended, and 1 new champion will be crowned.

I'll Take This One, Joe - Post UFC 178 Matchmaking

Sunday 28th September 2014

DEMETRIOUS "MIGHTY MOUSE" JOHNSON (21-2-1) As most predicted, this was as straightforward as it was going to get for the champ. That's not to say Chris Cariaso is some kind of scrub. It's just that he is, was and never will be in the same class as Mighty Mouse. Johnson controlled the fight from the off, landed some great shots, hit his takedowns, and eventually locked in a k...

The Boogey Blog: Just Lately

Monday 8th September 2014

If you know me you know that I am an extremely handsome man, as well as this you will also know that I live a very busy lifestyle due to running a hotel and being a father to three young rascals. But I'm sure you most likely know me due to the handsomeness. Because of the busyness (not the handsomeness) I haven't been able to do as much mixed martial arts writing as I would have liked to recently....

UFC 177 Fallout: Just "Weight" A Minute

Tuesday 2nd September 2014

When UFC 177 ended late Saturday night in Sacramento, two things were obvious. One was the fact that the card exceeded most fans expectations, at least on paper. And two was the fact that Renan Barao's name was about to be on the tip of every MMA fans tongue. A few hours before the prefight weigh-ins for the event, Barao was pulled from the card, and his title shot against TJ Dillishaw, after los...

Rabey Recommends - September, 2014

Sunday 31st August 2014

Even with the loss of the long anticipated Jon Jones vs. Daniel Cormier clash, September is still a stupidly stacked month for top end MMA action. UFC has four packed events, with UFC 178 a particular highlight. Bellator also return to full time action, this time with Scott Coker taking over the running of the promotion from Bjorn Rebny. As always I look at the month ahead and cherry pick the fi...
