Editor of Fighters Only Mag starts a blog.

Hywel Teague, editor of Fighters Only magazine, has started his own blog, Notes from Ringside. There’s all kinds of MMA and BJJ related goodness in there, as well as the odd scoop that he is able to scoop with his well-connected scooping devices.

I’m lucky enough to count Hywel as a reader of my humble scribblings, and so I direct you to his blog to return the favour.

Coincidentally, if you see Fighters Only on the shelf at your local magazine store, pick it up, it’s a great read. I especially like the guest editorials, especially when they’re written by me.

Hunt Vs. Fedor… I predict a riot, I predict a riot!

So, it’s NYE. Hunt vs. Fedor. Champion vs. Challenger. Big, ur, Russian Guy vs. Big, um, New Zealander with Samoan heritage currently living in Australia. Yay!

I’m going to go on record (take note, three loyal readers!) and say that Hunt will beat Fedor on NYE.

(Escape clause-if I am wrong, Fedor will submit Hunt early.)

The reasons?

Thanks, I’m glad you asked, cheese-brains.

1) Hunt is a tough mother-humper with rocks in his head.
2) Fedor is enjoying his time at the top, and wants to stretch his legs a bit. After fighting Mark Coleman, he said he wanted to make the fight last a bit longer, to feel his (Coleman’s) technique, and practice his own. I am not sure what Fedor’s gameplan will be for the fight against Hunt, but if he decides to try a similar thing and “carry” Hunt for a round or two (no small feat… or feet…) then he is playing a very dangerous game.

The pressure is there for him to do so… it’s the main event, he is the champ, and he is looking to up his stock to make himself a better commodity for future contract signings. Perhaps he feels some pressure to show a “fight” rather than storming out, flopping Hunt on his arse and armbarring his face off (which I strongly believe Fedor could do if he wanted.)

So Fedor has a choice. 1) Go out and totally dominate. He did that against Zulu last year, which was great, but didn’t give fans what they wanted (more of Fedor) or 2) Try to carry Hunt for at least a round.

Option 1=Safe, entirely possible
Option 2=Risky, and something that someone who has been undefeated for years might just try and pull.

And if anyone has a puncher’s chance, it’s Hunt. Fujita punched Fedor and made him do the fish dance. I think Hunt would turn Fedor into a fish if he connects with one of his hams… A dead fish! /melodrama

Either way, I am sure this will be a great fight and I hope Fedor decides to test himself with some standup before de-grapplerising Hunt’s brains out.

Greatest fight in a long, long time.

Hot damn, this fight was so awesome.

I will edit this post to say something useful when I have time.

The link up there will take you to the blog of Susumu Nagao, best MMA photographer in the business. It’s all in Japanese, but most of it is pictures anyway. He updates it with snaps of the latest events a week or so after they happen.

I particularly like the pic of Fedor here

His website is here, it’s worth checking both every now and then.

Fedor 0.5 going to the UFC? Sweet!

Aleksander Emelianenko coming to the UFC? » MMA HQ – Mixed Martial Arts News and Analysis

Little Fedor might be going to the UFC.

That would be awesome. He says he wants to get out of his older brother’s shadow… right on. He’ll always be number two as long as he is in the same organisation as his brother.

I think even Aleksander would sail through most of the competition in the UFC.

What a family… two brothers champions of the two biggest fight promotions in the world… sweeeeet.

Big Fedor:

The Brothers Emilianenko Training… Hmm, not enough chi sau or forms to be really good at fighting though. 😉
