The Making of the Diaz Brothers

On this day in 1983, Nicholas Robert Diaz was born… incidentally, Happy Birthday Nick! Less than 2 years later, his brother, Nathan Donald Diaz was born. Both of these men have (most of) the MMA world at their feet, so lets take a walk down memory lane… Early Years To understand the Diaz brothers, you […]


UFC – The Good, The Bad & The Ugly

Hi Guys & Girls… So, what is the worst PPV in UFC history? I’m sure if you are a long term fan, you will have a few events running through your mind. I’m also sure that one or two of you will have mentioned UFC 33. Three title fights on the one card, including standout […]


Hardline Messages

Hi Guys & Girls… Well, another day, another USADA PED’s violation! On June 16, Jon Jones was tested, the result came back with something nasty and as a result he was pulled from UFC 200. This time, Brockkkkkkkk Lesnar (I believe we are contractually obliged to draw out the K in his name!), has failed. His […]

International Fight Week

Hi Guys & Girls So, Shark Week has come to a close. Boooooooooooo! Shark Week is of course a dream for shark fans like me. My favourite moment is probably the crazy dude trying to keep a swarm of Great White Sharks out of his cage with its flimsy broken door. But alas, as one […]

Are You TUF Enough?

Great White Shark on Shark Week

Hi Guys & Girls, I was late with my last blog post, breaking my streak of two in row. I have to admit I was disappointed in myself. Yet I have repeated the offence this time, by not being prepared in advance! As my wife is sat beside me doing her nail practice, now seems […]

The Spirit is Willing

Hi Guys & Girls, Yay! I’m finally back on my self imposed schedule. I owe it all to being prepared. I finished posting Sunday’s and started work on this one immediately. Hopefully a sign of things to come! In August 2006, Matt Serra was a contestant on the Ultimate Fighter season 4, titled “The Comeback”. […]

Screw You Guys, I’m Going Home

Hi Guys & Girls, Another interesting week in which illness has returned for my kids, sleep has disappeared for me and my boy has turned 3. Wow! Still can’t believe he’s there already. Lets start as In February, Conor McGregor stated he would “set the game ablaze and then walk away”. He has now announced […]

Mr Ambassador

Hi Guys & Girls, This week has been filled with illness, my daughter had her second set of injections and I have been quite ill myself, because of that I have struggled to find motivation to write. Here we are though, a new blog post finally! Let’s start with the customary MMA section, UFC Brisbane […]
