Preview of UFC 160: Velasquez vs. Bigfoot 2, which could be a perversely entertaining card.
Larry Csonka joins the Man Cave to talk some pro wrestling. We’ll look back at Extreme Rules and talk about the fallout with Triple H’s concussion, Paul Heyman’s newest guy, Ryback vs. Cena, and The Shield winning gold. Then we’ll get off on a sports tangent talking about hockey memories before closing up with a short preview of TNA Slammiversery and some MMA news and notes.
This is a new feature to the site that I decided to use to help justify my UFC Select subscription. Every couple of weeks the UFC Select channel is putting up old events starting with UFC 1. So I’ve decided to review them event by event with my usual charm and wittiness.
I won’t limit the Flashback Journal to just UFC events though. I hope to look back at sports games and wrestling events as well. This isn’t exactly an original idea but one I hope to have some fun with.
So here’s the event that started it all: UFC 1.
Samer Kadi joins the Man Cave for a look back at UFC on FX 8. We’ll talk about Vitor Belfort’s awesome spinning heel kick, his obsession with dinosaurs, and a potential title fight. And, of course, TRT. Plus we’ll talk about “Jacare” Souza’s awesomeness and why the lightweight division never moves.
Thoughts on UFC on FX 8, which ended up being a very good night for Brazilian fighters.
