UFC 224 AfterMMAth (Granite Chins and jobs at risk)

Man, I love these sleeper cards. You settle in for the evening, thinking “Well, even though it’s not hyped up to outrageous proportions, it’s still a decent card.” Then the stars align, or some magic happens and you go on a fun ride, with great fights, finishes and stories to remember.
Alright, let’s jump right to my picks. Then, we’ll chat about this, that and the other.

UFC 223 AftreMMAth (Past, Present, Future)

Welcome to the AftreMMAth of the AfterMMAth of what was UFC223, last night in Brooklyn, New York. Normally we do picks before, then review them here.  But see, in order to make picks one has to know which fights one needs to pick, and that aspect of the whole thing was as stable as Conor McGregor’s state of mind. So, no picks for you! But we will chat about this, that and the other. (All credits go to UFC/WME-IMG for all photos.)

Wondering what the hell you just read? What on God’s green earth does Seinfeld have to do with MMA? Hey, what does Ric Flair’s “Wooo!” have to do with MMA?

Nothing!

It’s a post about nothing.


UFC 221 AfterMMAth (Aussie Aussie Aussie, Oi Oi Vey)

Many people said this was not a card worthy of a PPV and you know, they might still have a case. It was, however a very enjoyable night of fights, with tons of action and fun fights, starting in the early prelims (very early if you were in Perth Australia…) all the way to the main event. We saw Israel Adesanya’s violent debut and a spinning back fist knockdown, A magnificent GnP and a surprising but welcome Kimura. But I’m getting ahead of myself here.
Let’s discuss my picks quickly. Then, we’ll chat about this, that and the other.

UFC 221 – Predictions

A lot of people question whether this card is “PPV worthy”. Me? I don’t really care. I see good potential and hope that this would become one of those cards that deliver more than expected. Interesting fights from early prelims to main event, which will give us the identity of the middleweight number one contender. I don’t have a lot of time so…
Let the predicting of UFC 221 coming up on Saturday, February 10th on PPV commence. (All credits go to UFC/WME-IMG for all photos.)
