    Tyson Fury's young brother Tommy (2-0 as a pro) is going into Love Island. I have absolutely zero intention of watching that, but considering the show is so popular it'll turn Fury into abit of a showbiz celebrity.
  2. skipped the show, but that Pereira KO was tremendous, what a debut.
  3. the drum roll to complete silence as the belt was revealed was just as sad as it was embarrasing.
  4. I loves me some Paulie, but as ive stated previously it does feel like he's completely underestimated Lobov. That said, Paulie is a salesman, he went through his entire boxing career starting feuds and drumming up interest, it worked for him too, maybe hes just working everyone in the buildup? edit* ive just watched the actual press conference. If you are of the thinking that Bare Knuckle is a bit of a backward step, knuckle dragging type thing id advice you skip it because it isnt gonna do much to alter your opinion on that.
  5. Fucking hell, thats grim. I had no idea who Cosmo was pre-fight but looking at his record i just had a feeling it was bad matchup for Sage. One Championship aint messing around matching up these name imports are they?

    Wilders someone who can ruins anyones day. He's unconventional and has so much power that anyone fighting him could be in trouble. What he did to Breazeale could happen to anyone in the division if he finds the shot. Wilder could 100% lay out AJ, but if we want to point out chin vunerabilities theres no doubt AJ could do the same to Wilder. Wilder has also been outboxed in several fights against lower class fighters than AJ and hes been hurt too, Breazeale had him do a mini stanky leg himself. If they fought id give AJ the edge in everything but Wilders X factor power almost makes any fight 50/50. It needs to happen.
  7. Fight wise i dont think anything comes close to the Liddell KO, but TUF 10 and the Rampage feud has to be what he's most fondly remembered for.
  8. yeh ive seen the ones, Ian Rotten/Madman Pondo had infamous scissor match. It was one of the infamous 'Wrestings Most Horrific Moments' tapes.
  9. wasn't the tongue spot more like the Jeff Hardy ear thing where they simply fed the arm of the scissor through a hole that was already in the tonge from piercing? he didnt literally stab the bloke in the tonge...did he?

    That fucking knockout! pre-fight i said i wanted Breazeale to throw a spanner in the works but that KO was ridiculous. Breazeale was asking it from the opening bell. If KO's are statements in the heavyweight division, Wilder probably just laid claim to the #1 spot.

    Tito's Back. . .

    Tito pretty much admitting there that the Golden Boy MMA thing was an absolute disaster there. When the history books of MMA are written, that's surely gonna go down and one of the saddest nights in the sports history. There's also another interview knocking about where Tito hints that his opponent for Combate Americas would be a former WWE star (Del Rio).

    excellent little broadcast that, having a show start with the co-main event is quite refreshing for a UK show. Josh Taylor had a tough fight but rightfully won the title. The 7 rounds to 5 scorecard sounded about right to me, but the double knockdown sent Taylor clear. Baranchyk is a bit of a beast, if Taylor hadn't have had that excellent round 6 im not so sure he would have won the fight. Excellent scrap though, Taylor insistence on biting down and going to war isnt always smart but its exciting. Taylor/Prograis is gonna be one of the fights of the year. As for The Monster, Inoue. Fuck me, that guy is scary at the weight, absolute wrecking machine. I dont fancy Nonito Donaire's chances.
  13. Ahhh, i loved Seal the Deal... i know a certain part of the fanbase are against anything the band have done since Rob Caggiano joined though. Some absolute tunes on there. Be cool to see Danko come on to do Black Rose with them live too. No one does guest spots like Volbeat.
  14. Agree with everything being said. The divisions and the fights just aren't interesting enough. I skip 90% of female fights because they generally aren't very good and they usually go the distance with little real potential fight ending action, i just can't get into it. There's a few fighters there who i tune in for and when something catches fire it can be great but more often than not its pure fast forward material.
  15. You look at the rankings and theres no obvious standout contenders really. Holm's name value is doing her a favour here.

    he has a decent record but because hes lost 2 on the bounce he appears to be on the skid. 287lb on the scale but looks in good nick for such a big man.

    yeh, Joyce is chief support to Saunders. He's fighting Ustinov who was once brought in to fight Fury but never materialised. He's a man mountain but lethargic as shit, its gonna be a slow one.
  18. new album/uk tour announced, Bristol on a Saturday night sounds lovely to me. Baroness supporting too is a bonus! Volbeat dont fuck around when it comes to support bands, always an interesting bill.

  20. id go for Ponzinhibbio, great stylistic fight.
