Oct 30, 2018

Jul 26, 2018

With Rizin 11 and a banging UFC Fight Night on the door step, our hero considers Alvarez vs Poirier, Kyoji vs Sakuraba Jr., and whether Jeremy Stephens is still the world's most overrated finisher.

Jul 24, 2018

E'rybody sad this week as Anthony Smith steamrolled the aged Mauricio 'Shogun' Rua, but there was some joy to be had in the discovery of a new, slimmer version of Kelvin Gastelum.

Jul 18, 2018

Scott Coker produces something that is both delicious and nourishing, and our hero glugs it down.
