5 of the Best Submissions in UFC History

5 of the Best Submissions in UFC History

We often feel that BJJ doesn’t get the credit it’s due when it comes to MMA – a lot of casual fans don’t appreciate the sheer technical ability that goes into submissions and how difficult it can be to secure the tap, especially when the person you’re trying to control is trying to punch you in the face.

5 MMA Prospects to Watch in 2018

MMA is a tough sport to reach superstardom in. A well placed head kick (Ronda Rousey vs Holly Holm) or a solid wrestler (Francis Ngannou vs Stipe Miocic) can derail the hype train very quickly.

The Best Kickboxers in the UFC

The Best Kickboxers in the UFC

Many people view the striking side of MMA as the most exciting, the combination of elite striking, small gloves and hard strikes regularly result in spectacular, highlight reel knockouts.

Top Muay Thai Fighters and Kickboxers Outside of Thailand (Part 2)
