  2. UFC 109 postmortem

    Jake Rossen/Sherdog.com

    A fighter with indomitable will to succeed is a powerful thing. Leading into his UFC 109 bout with Randy Couture, Mark Coleman was exemplifying the kind of grit and attrition that had marked some of the bigger milestones in his career. If you didn'...

  3. ESPN Primer: UFC 109

    Jake Rossen/Sherdog.com

    Like health care reform, most of the coverage surrounding UFC 109 is fixated on the plight of the senior citizen: Randy Couture is 46, Mark Coleman is 45, and the two combined have roughly 27 years of prizefighting experience accrued. That kind of ti...

  5. MMA on New York Times' front page

    Jake Rossen/Sherdog.com

    Despite the congestion of MMA coverage in "mainstream" media over the past five years, there's still some uncharted territory left. While we wait for Andy Rooney to chime in, the sport can make do with a front-page mention in the New York Times. T...

  6. Jose Canseco calls out Herschel Walker

    Jake Rossen/Sherdog.com

    For people who enjoy societal train wrecks, Twitter has proven to be a wonderful tool. Instead of idiot celebrities being audited by their PR people, they're free to circulate staggering stupidity in real time. This from Jose Canseco, to his 324,0...

  7. Mike Tyson is dancing with (Italian) stars

    Jake Rossen/Sherdog.com

    Advancing age seems to be the one sure antidote for athletes previously known for bad temperaments. An entire generation that knows George Foreman as a doughy, Bible-belting grill pitchman has little idea that he was once a surly boxer with a stare t...

  8. Mark Burnett 'Kings' himself

    Jake Rossen/Sherdog.com

    You remember the noise about producer Mark Burnett wanting to get into mixed martial arts in a big way: There were talks of an MMA reality series featuring Jose Canseco and Herschel Walker as opponents in the cage. (Reality be damned, they both actua...

  9. Frank Shamrock-Pat Miletich fight is simmering

    Jake Rossen/Sherdog.com

    Combat sports always have had the sadistic business sense to feed graying talent to younger, faster, better stars -- a torch-passing at which the losing party gets third-degree burns in the process. It's cruel, it's ugly and it never makes anyone fee...

  10. 'Strikeforce: Miami' postmortem

    Jake Rossen/Sherdog.com

    Nick Diaz is not a knockout artist in any traditional sense: You don't need to fear a lunch box of a hand crashing into your temple. What Diaz does instead is arguably more impressive: Instead of connecting once, he transmits force over and over and ...

  11. ESPN Primer: 'Strikeforce: Miami'

    Jake Rossen/Sherdog.com

    In arranging 20 cards (or more) per year, the UFC has adopted a schedule that doesn't make many allowances for "event" programming: it has become a sports league with no offseason. To satisfy that glut of airtime, more than a few events wind up havin...

  12. Tito Ortiz plays doctor

    Jake Rossen/Sherdog.com

    "Two weeks before the fight, I was wrestling with one of my partners, and we collided heads. I fractured my orbital bone. I don't remember the weigh-ins. I don't remember the fight. All I remember was the beginning of the third round." --Tito Ortiz, ...

  13. MMA monetization: UFC collectible figurines

    Jake Rossen/Sherdog.com

    There are any number of reasons why mixed martial arts will permanently supplant boxing as the premier combat sport in the United States: It's more visually engaging, the big fights usually happen on time, and talent egos are corralled. One asset ...

  14. Georges St. Pierre not impressed with himself

    Jake Rossen/Sherdog.com

    Take any athlete of any skill in any era, and you'll find extremists arguing both sides of his reputation. For some, Randy Couture's title-laden career is modern-day mythology; for others, he's an overrated smother artist with a crippled 17-10 record...

  15. Cung Le discusses future

    Jake Rossen/Sherdog.com

    A professional fighter with any measure of celebrity being asked how he got started fighting is usually my cue to stop reading -- or watching -- whatever interview is unraveling. It's the kind of pained, so-what stock question that practically guaran...

  16. Mauler Manhoef aware of his shortcomings

    Jake Rossen/Sherdog.com

    There's real prejudice against martial artists who don't subscribe to multiple styles. Being good at one thing -- and only one thing -- is seen as being negligent. Yet it's these one-dimensional athletes who often wind up being the most exciting. ...

  17. Jim Rome burns Brock Lesnar

    Jake Rossen/Sherdog.com

    In my limited, third-party knowledge of Brock Lesnar's misanthropic attitude toward life, media and anyone outside his immediate familial circle, I would say he's not unwilling to throw you into oncoming traffic if he doesn't like the cut of your ton...
