Looking back at the opening event of “Fight Island”, UFC 251 was most certainly a big success despite the last minute change to the main event courtesy of COVID-19. In fact the prospect of the BMF challenging for the Welterweight strap was ultimately more exciting than teammates competing for the belt. Unlike most cards of […]

Last night’s action from inside the APEX Center in Las Vegas was another case of history in the making with Curtis Blaydes putting on a Heavyweight takedown masterclass while controversy in the opening bout of the night has again raised the rather thorny issue of corners protecting their fighters. The co-main event saw a potential […]

Looking at the card ahead of #UFCVegas2, most fight fans had some serious reservations which all looked to be coming to fruition as both Minner and Borg withdrew from the event citing illness and a family emergency respectively. Added to that was the issue of professionalism as 3 fighters missed weight, which included fighters in […]

The UFC’s Apex Facility made the UFC look like many amateur promotions here in SA, large open spaces, loads of echo and more lights than fans. This amateur feel was further compounded by the bizarre interview process implemented by the UFC this time round, most probably prompted by the NSAC. I now understand the reason […]

Desperation levels at the UFC are high! Endeavor and the UFC are really desperate to get their fighting faces on. This is the underlying sentiment if one understands firstly, that Endeavor, the US-based sports and entertainment group whose assets include the UFC, is planning to sell part of its stake in US video game and […]

The great news is they […]

Ruckus EFC 83 Build-Up

If this is the new and improved Elvis Ngwalangwala, then I like him very much! His dominante performance in the first 2 rounds had Strydom gasping for air throughout the 3rd. His victory snaps his 2-fight skid. A cool, calm and composed Cameron Saaiman announced his arrival on the professional MMA scene with a performance […]
