Is the world ready for Johnson vs Dodson 2?
It’s fight night. Follow along our Henderson Vs Khabilov coverage. Continue reading
Jason aka @dadrrtywhyteboi, and I are joined by Big D from Superfriends Universe as well as this very website to discuss Sunday night’s Royal Rumble featuring CM Punk defending his title against the Rock as well as the 30-man over the top battle royal.
We talked about WWE’s decision to put the belt on Rock and setup what looks to be another Rock vs. John Cena match. We talk about long-term booking and how we always want wrestling companies to do it and then when we disagree with their planning, we don’t want them to anymore. We talk about the rumble match itself including the surprises like Chris Jericho, Goldust, and the Godfather.
We talk about the rest of the card including the brilliant job The Big Show is doing in helping getting Alberto Del Rio over as a babyface.
Big D leaves us and Jason and I talk the UFC on Fox 6 show from Saturday and whether or not headlining with flyweights is going to work. We then preview the main card at UFC 156, which is the day before the Super Bowl.
We finish with our Super Bowl picks. It’s 49ers vs. Ravens, and you know who I’m picking.

If you missed it, yesterday we previewed the top three fights on the show.
On the biggest two fights on the FX prelims, Clay Guida won a questionable decision over Hatsu Hioki which either should’ve gone to Hioki or maybe should’ve been a draw, and TJ Grant annihilated Matt Wiman, who doesn’t go by the nickname of handsome anymore, and after taking multiple elbows to the face, might not be handsome anymore.
1. Ricardo Lamas vs. Erik Koch
Koch played defense for most of the round and was tied up fighting the takedown. Lamas is also the quicker and more active of the two so far.
That didn’t take long. Lamas slipped, Koch tried to get on top, but Lamas ended up on top and just drilled him with elbow after elbow. Game, set, match.
Winner: Ricard Lamas by way of 2nd round TKO
2. Donald Cerrone vs. Anthony Pettis
