When I first visited Bangkok, Thailand earlier this year, I honestly knew it was a trip that was long overdue.

I had always heard great things about the fight culture in Thailand, and in 2015 my friend and former fighter Monyette Flowers really began putting the idea into my head about giving the country a visit. I finally made my first trip this past March and it was well worth it.

Bellator 203: Pitbull vs Weichel 2 takes place this Saturday night, July 14, from Forco Italico in Rome, Italy and the main event is one not to miss. Featherweight champion Patricio “Pitbull” Freire (26-4) will be taking on Daniel Weichel (39-9) for a second time in a rematch that will surely settle some kind of score.

All one has to do is take a look back and their first fight to get a sense of how much drama was in the air as they squared off in St. Louis, Missouri in June of 2015. Weichel was filling in for an injured Georgi Karakhanyan and fought very well in the first round. I rewatched the fight earlier tonight and was impressed by how much skill was on display from each man.

That was exactly this case this past Saturday, Oct. 7, inside of the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nev. at UFC 216 as Tony Ferguson and Kevin Lee engaged in a battle for the UFC interim lightweight championship.

A little under three years ago, I was sitting on my porch with my buddy Kevin. While watching UFC highlights on my laptop, He told me to look up “this dude Conor McGregor, he’s this crazy Irish dude who throws ridiculous kicks.” That crazy Irishman will be fighting for the lightweight title on March 5. McGregor’s unprecedented rise to the top of the UFC comes from his outlandish trash talk and his uncanny ability to back it up.

McGregor’s trash talk is legendary. The only other UFC fighters who are even on the same level are Chael Sonnen and Brock Lesnar. He utilizes that trash talk to propel himself into larger fights and draw larger crowds. He is his own perfect PR guy. You can see one of his best moments when he verbally attacks every UFC fighter at a press conference. But, trash talk is nothing unless you can back it up, and McGregor has fulfilled every one of his promises so far.

On Dec. 13, UFC superstar Conor McGregor catapulted his career to new heights with a crushing 13-second knockout over former long-reigning featherweight champion Jose Aldo.

Brash, charismatic, and outspoken, McGregor is now considered by many to be the face of mixed martial arts.

Anderson Silva, arguably the greatest fighter in MMA history, tested positive a second time for Performance Enhancing Drugs (PEDs) following his bout with Nick Diaz at UFC 183. The first test came before he defeated Diaz, but the second positive came soon after the contest.

After one of the premier fighters tested positive for PEDs, Hector Lombard, a top contender for the welterweight division, also tested positive for PEDs. The UFC brass had enough with these positive tests and held a press conference February 18th to discuss their changes to the drug testing policies.

With Super Bowl XLIX in the books, the arm-chair quarterbacks have sat up, put down their beers and voiced their opinions. You can second guess just about every call or play made in this game, but none will be more popular then the now infamous pass play that lead to Seattle’s fourth quarter loss.

After a miraculous catch by Seattle wide receiver Jermaine Kearse, and a tough run to the one yard line by Marshawn Lynch, Seattle offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell called a pass play on the one yard line. The play was a slant route ran by wide receiver Ricardo Lockette underneath a “pick” route ran by wide receiver Jermaine Kearse.

Moments ago, from the U of Phoenix Stadium, Glendale, Arizona, the New England Patriots won Super Bowl  XLIX with a come-from-behind victory over the Seattle Seahawks in another great finish to the NFL season.

You got the sense early that it was going to be a competitive game given the quality of both teams. New England got on the board first, when Brady connected with Brandon LaFell for an 11 yard touchdown.

Another championship weekend has come and gone with its share of fireworks. We witnessed a dominating performance by the New England Patriots and another incredible NFC championship game involving a come-from-behind victory from the Seattle Seahawks.

The NFC championship game began with a surprisingly dominant first half by the Green Bay Packers and no one would have guessed that the visiting teams would have had a 16-0 lead at halftime over the defending Super Bowl champions.

Last night, inside of the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, UFC light heavyweight champion Jon “Bones” Jones successfully defended his title inside of the Octagon with a five-round unanimous decision over Daniel Cormier in a fight that was better than many expected.

While the commanding victory helps Jones’ to keep his name thrust in the MMA headlines, there has definitely been some feedback to the way Jones has acted following his 20th professional victory. There definitely was no shortage of emotions coming from Jones, 27, and Cormier, 35, prior to their match, as it was apparent that some genuine disdain was in the air.
