There’s an article on ESPN titled, “Bellator ready to deal Ben Askren to UFC.” When I read this, my sports fandom kicked in and I immediately thought that Bellator was going to trade Askren to the UFC. Maybe they’d get some future TUF prospects, cash, a couple of depth fighters, who knows. I just know that I was excited because, as my twitter followers can attest to, I love trades. Unfortunately, this article didn’t mention any trades, but it did give me the idea for this column.
Let’s pretend that the UFC and other organizations could trade fighters. UFC has too many fighters and some bad contracts that I’m sure they’d like to offload and other organizations could use some depth or name fighters that can’t compete at a UFC level anymore.
Samer Kadi joins the Man Cave to review UFC Fight Night 26. We’ll talk about where “Shogun” Rua goes from here, Chael Sonnen vs. Brazil, Alistair Overeem continuing to be overrated, and why Matt Brown is the greatest fighter of all-time.
Samer Kadi joins the Man Cave to preview UFC Fight Night 26. We’ll discuss whether or not the 2013 version of “Shogun” Rua has a chance, why we still find Alistair Overeem overrated, discuss hitchhiker fighters, and wonder who Yuri Alcantara is.
Samer Kadi joins the Man Cave for quite possibly our most extensive podcast of all-time. We spend nearly an hour talking about Jose Aldo vs. Frankie Edgar, why Aldo isn’t the crazy finisher he used to be, how Edgar is the best at adapting in the middle of fights, and everything in between. Then we ponder just what the hell Rashad Evans was doing, label Alistair Overeem as the most overrated fighter of all-time, and praise Demian Maia for another outstanding performance. It’s nearly two hours long, but it proves why Samer is the #1 ranked P4P podcaster.
