History Made in Vegas (TUF 20 Finale Review)

Women’s fighting in the UFC took another huge step in Vegas as the year continues to come to a close. It wasn’t long ago that women in the UFC were not even thought of as the executives at the promotion refused to consider them. That has changed in recent years and a division that was said to have nowhere near the talent has become one of the most entertaining divisions in the UFC. Ronda Rousey rules the division with little to no competition but her star power alone can boost any weight division. Aside from Rousey though, the division has shown its true colours putting on close fights that have been some of the best on every card they are involved in.

Not the Night for Home Fans (UFC Fight Night 43 Review)

As the UFC travelled to New Zealand at UFC Fight Night 43 a number of fighters would learn what it was like to fight in front of their home crowds.

Fighting at home is a mixed bag for fighters as it provides a more stable training camp with less travel and less adjustment but can also provide plenty of distractions for the fighters. When fighting at home the familiarity of the country or the city can be comforting for fighters.

Middleweight Moving Day in Brazil (UFC Fight Night 36 Review)

2013 was a big year for the middleweight division in the UFC as the division ruled by the most dominant champion in UFC history would finally see a change.

The Legend Falls (UFC 162 Review)

Everything comes to an end but Anderson Silva’s reign as UFC Middleweight Champion seemed to only be coming to an end on his terms.

Undercard outshines once again (UFC 152 Review)

The UFC has seen a strange trend lately as the Pay per View events have been less than great while free fights seem to be the better fights. Since signing the deal with Fox the UFC has put on more free fights than ever before and they are impressing many.
