Mixed Martial Arts

I'm a huge Mixed Martial Arts fan and watch most of the pay per views. This is the category where I write about current MMA news, favorite MMA fighters, or anything MMA related that is of interest to me.

Fedor Emelianenko vs. Brett Rogers – What an Exciting Fight!

If you were looking for an exciting fight this weekend, Fedor Emelianenko vs. Brett Rogers wouldn’t have left you disappointed. Fedor was cut within 1 minute of the first round and was bleeding pretty bad. From this point, I was standing just feet from a 50″ tv anxious to see if Fedor was going to […]

UFC 98 – Rashad Evans vs. Lyota Machida

UFC 98 was very exciting. The much anticipated fight between Rashad Evans and Lyota Machida was not disappointing. Rashad the reigning Light Heavyweight Champion wasn’t there by accident. He is an excellent and dangerous fighter. I was just amazed to see how easily Machida took him apart with surgical precision. It’s going to be interesting […]
