Samer Kadi joins the Man Cave to preview arguably the greatest fight card of all-time: UFC 160. Samer spends way too much time talking about Cain Velasquez vs. Antonio Silva 2 and praising James Te-Huna while I keep the show moving by talking about my almost dinner date with Glover Teixeira and disdain for Marcus Davis.
Preview of UFC 160: Velasquez vs. Bigfoot 2, which could be a perversely entertaining card.
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.
My thoughts on UFC on FX 8, which is a slightly above average UFC card.
Samer Kadi joins the Man Cave to preview UFC on FX 8, which features a potential #1 contender’s fight in the middleweight division, a very good lightweight fight, and a fighter we both love. In other words, if we’re talking about just the main card, it’s an above average card. Plus Samer breaks the news to me that Nick Diaz is thinking of starting his own MMA promotion.
Samer Kadi joins the Man Cave to look back at UFC 159, which was a pretty bad show. We’ll talk about all the reasons Jon Jones vs. Chael Sonnen was a bad fight that was never going to be competitive and anyone who thought it was going to be competitive isn’t very smart. Plus Samer rants about eye pokes and tries to out-knowledge me on Chuck Liddell, and we talk about whether or not Phil Davis is improving and Pat Healy’s big win.
My review of UFC 159: Jones vs. Sonnen, which was an average card with a predictable main event.
