1. GSP is undoubtedly the best pound for pound fighter in MMA

    A jaw dropping article from MMA Fighting’s Mike Chiapppetta about the sheer dominance of current UFC Welterweight Champion Georges St-Pierre.

    It’s very well written, as always from Mike, and contains some truly scary statistics about St-Pierre’s recent run in the top promotion in the sport of mixed martial arts.

  2. Anderson Silva vs Forrest Griffin.
KO at 3:23 of round 1.
This fight is still one of the craziest things I’ve ever seen.
Anderson Silva moves up a weight class and takes on former world champion Forrest Griffin. He proceeds to dodge everything Forrest throws at him as if he’s in The Matrix, knocks him down 3 times and then knocks him out with a jab while walking backwards.
It is fucking insane.

  3. Jose Aldo vs Ed Soares.

    They resolve a managerial dispute the right way, on the mats!

  4. Mauricio ‘Shogun’ Rua on Sports Science.

    The dude has the single most powerful strike ever recorded on Sports Science, he’s the reigning UFC light heavyweight champion and he’s an underdog in his upcoming fight against Jon Jones.

    I might just have to lay some down on Shogun.

    Mauricio “Shogun” Rua.

    He’s the UFC Light-heavyweight Champion for a reason.

    He was the 2005 PRIDE FC Middleweight Grand Prix Champion for a reason.

    He’s going to be the reason why Jon Jones will have his first official loss.

    WAR, SHOGUN!

    War Shogun indeed.

  7. That is such a fantastic photo.
Shogun is a motherfucker with those diving punches. The one he knocked out Alistair Overeem with was incredible.

    A new UFC Light Heavyweight Champion has been crowd, and so the Jon Jones era begins. Along with the show of dominance during the main event, the rest of UFC 128 was fun to watch. From the knockout of Mirko Cro Cop to the the emergence of yet another great Lightweight in Jim Miller — you got a little bit of everything.

    1. Jon Jones completely dominates Shogun Rua

    Was I shocked? No, but I did think Shogun Rua would put up more of a fight. But Jon Jones just had the more superior game plan to frustrate and take the wind out of Shogun. Jones seems to take the advantages of his opponents and make it his own.

    Jones out wrestled both wrestlers in Vladimir Matyushenko and Ryan Bader. Now, he showed off superior Muay Thai against Shogun. Starting with a ton of kicks, he controlled the distance. From there, he took it too the body and that’s where Shogun started to wilt. Punches and especially elbows to the body on the ground completely shut the former Champion down.

    Shogun is a game fighter and never quit, he continued to go for submissions and tried to get up constantly, but he just couldn’t. Jones blanketed him and delivered a ton of damage. The last body shot and knee from Jones ended the beating and he became the youngest UFC Champion ever.

    2. Urijah Faber successfully makes his debut in the UFC

    This was a showcase fight for Urijah Faber, but Eddie Wineland didn’t get that memo — at least for the first round. Wineland was able to shrug off all the takedowns and even land some good shots on Faber in the first. After that, it seemed like Faber just turned up a notch and became way more faster. He was first to the punch, and he was able to dictate the fight where ever it went. Successful debut for the face of WEC.
