This was one of the most surreal Raws ever. You had Hulk Hogan. You had LL Cool J. They quoted Bill Simmons and Grantland. And Daniel Bryan hijacked Raw. Continue reading
This is a Fight Pass-only season of The Ultimate Fighter: Brazil 3. And I have to be honest, it does feel a little more exclusive and special, even though it doesn’t help them obtain the greatest viewership. But you know what else makes it feel special? We finally get to see some sort of payoff between Chael Sonnen and Wanderlei Silva at the end of the season. And yes! Subtitles!
This season is middleweights and heavyweights. For some reason, they’ve added female coaches to each team. On Sonnen’s team is basketball player Hortencia Marcari and on Silva’s team is volleyball player, Isabel Salgado.
They will also select a ring girl for Brazil.
It looks like we’re getting fights to get in the house.

We’ve gone over just about everything you can go over when it comes to this fight the last few days. Nothing left but the punching.
(In the semi-main, Leo Santa Cruz beat Cristian Mijares in a near shut-out.)
There wasn’t much jabbing going on here. Canelo came out swinging hard and digging deep on uppercuts and hooks. Angulo didn’t really get anything going. Continue reading
This has a chance to be a sleeper fight night card. With so much UFC on TV today, unless you’re the hardest of hardcores, a lot of these shows blend together. But this show that’s exclusively shown on Fight Pass has a chance to stand out a bit from UFC’s B and C shows.

On paper, this fight seems like a great ‘comeback-from-a-loss-fight’ for Canelo Alvarez. After being taught a boxing lesson in how to not get hit by Floyd Mayweather, it’s smart to put Canelo into the ring with someone who won’t avoid being hit at all. In fact, in Angulo’s last two losses to Erislandy Lara and James Kirkland, he was stopped.
But there’s one other reason why this could be a good match for Canelo. Angulo will test his toughness, which is something people wonder about him. He hasn’t fought the who’s who of bombers in the division, but getting past Angulo would answer some of those questions.
