The Main Event Preview: Rampage Jackson vs King Mo @ Bellator 120

This weekend’s Bellator 120 event had originally been earmarked as the promotion’s biggest night to date as they ventured forth for their second attempt into the murky world of pay-per-view. What has happened however is similar to what happened the last time as one of the fighters in their showpiece main event has pulled out injured, jeopardising the whole event. What is most surprising of all is it wasn’t Tito Ortiz, but Eddie Alvarez who was set to defend his lightweight title against Michael Chandler to conclude their epic trilogy. With Alvarez out, the co-main event between Quinton “Rampage” Jackson […]

Jake Shields vs Yoshihiro Akiyama

Jake Shields’ Release Shows Entertainment Value Outweighs Ability in the UFC

The UFC have released former Strikeforce middleweight champion and welterweight contender Jake Shields. The decision highlights the importance the UFC places on entertainment over technical ability in MMA. Shields is coming off a decision loss to Hector Lombard at UFC 171 and compiled four wins, three losses and one no contest during his UFC tenure. Despite being completely outclassed for three rounds against Lombard, it was Shields’s first loss inside the Octagon in four fights. His last defeat before Lombard came in 2011 when a barrage of Jake Ellenberger’s knees earned “The Juggernaut” a TKO victory within the first minute […]
