An MMA enthusiast who also fancies himself a writer, I've been following the sport in depth since moving off to University in the fall of 2004 allowed me more free time than I knew what to do with. Quickly, an obsession with watching as much MMA as possible developed, which has continued to this day in the form of writing and editing articles for various MMA sites, and now to my own blog about my views on the sport.

The MMA Analysis – UFC 241 Review

With no UFC card upcoming this weekend the guys went in depth with their UFC 241 review. It was a big week for Nate Diaz, capped off with a big win and possibly his next big fight with Jorge Masvidal. Brad jumped on to talk about the big fights and even he had to admit that MMA is better when Nate Diaz is fighting. It was almost guaranteed to be a pants on the ceiling fight and Lil Drunk and YOLO Romero definitely delivered. In the main event, both fighters had fairly perplexing game plans that ended with Stipe KOing DC while down 3 rounds to 0 on the scorecards.
