Check out what the fighters had to say about Carano/Cyborg

We’ve interviewed a lot of fighters on MiddleEasy.com and we’ve always posed the question ‘Who will win in Carano vs. Cyborg?‘. Here is what they had to say: Shayna Baszler “Gina. I think that Cyborg has all the tools to beat Gina but I don’t think that she has a head enough to follow any

Get hyped about Carano/Cyborg TONIGHT!

This morning I woke up on my sofa buried in empty Taco Bell bags. My TV was still blasting from last night so I looked up and saw Kristin Kreuk from Smallville in black spandex with blood running down her mouth. From that moment on, I knew today was going to be a good day.

Randy Couture wants Anderson Silva

Randy Couture wants Anderson Silva. Not like in a Heath Ledger, Brokeback Mountain way. Not even in like a Starscream aspiring to be Megatron type of way. Randy Couture wants to take Silva’s genetic code, stick it in a blender and attempt to reassemble him while inebriated. Dude wants to brawl with the best pound

Fedor vs. Ricco Rodriguez on Oct. 10th?

Before you throw your laptop across the room and yell ‘Who is Ricco Rodriguez?‘ just know that the dude has beaten Ron Waterman, Jeff Monson, Randy Couture, Andrei Arlovski and Paul Buentello. Hell, Ricco Rodriguez was the UFC Heavyweight champion before being TKOd in the first round by Tim Sylvia a few months later. Oh

Our Strikeforce: Carano/Cyborg picks will probably lose you money…again

Back in 1992, Skynet sent robots from the future to destroy humankind. Their new robot, T-1000, had a mission to kill John Connor and thwart the human resistance movement of the future. Luckily, their mission was destroyed by the Governator, an awesome Guns and Roses video and an equally sick Terminator 2 arcade game. Now

Matt Lindland signs with Strikeforce

When I hopped out the cab in Las Vegas for the UFC 100 weekend, the first guy I saw was Matt Lindland standing outside the Mandalay Bay hotel waiting for his ride. He was sort of looking at me wondering who the guy getting out of the cab with a crew of hot chicks (I

If They Were Hot Chicks – Strikeforce Edition

It was sort of hard to do ‘If they were hot chicks’ for the Strikeforce – Carano/Cyborg card. Originally, Nick Diaz vs. Joe Riggs and Alistair Overeem vs. Fabricio Werdum were going to be included in our transformation. But since this card has changed on a weekly basis, we went with the only title match

Phil Baroni released from Strikeforce, will probably join UFC

Phil Baroni reminds me of my roommate in college that used to hold freestyle battles with the school cook he named ‘Chefy Poo’. He also told me Hollywood should cast him for the role of Spiderman because Tobey Maguire ‘looked too Polish’. Baroni’s last fight was against Diesel Joe Riggs in which he lost a

Tito Ortiz and Dana White kiss on camera

Tito Ortiz and Dana White have made up…and made out. I know today has been sort of lacking in guy on guy kiss action so to make it up (pun intended), here’s a video of Tito Ortiz passionately holding Dana White’s head as he kisses him directly on the lips. Yeah, only in America (and

Is there a TUF curse?

Seems like there may be a more than just the Undisputed curse floating around the UFC lately as TUF fighters went 0-5 at UFC 101, in fact, starting at UFC 98, the TUF crew has gone a combined 3-15 over the last few PPV’s since UFC 98. Not only are they getting beaten but they

Nick Diaz is moving to boxing

Remember that one time when Nick Diaz was going to fight Joe Riggs for the first ever Strikeforce welterweight title? Now do you remember that time when Riggs was replaced with Jay Hieron and they were still going to fight for the belt? What about that time when the California athletic commission told you that

Thales Leites has been cut from UFC

Remember that pose because that’s the last time you’ll see it in a UFC octagon. It’s a bummer that the UFC cut Thales Leites from their promotion. You can’t blame him for spending the entire fight trying to bait Anderson Silva into a BJJ match in their UFC 97 bout. When you’re locked in a

Bob Sapp has a dance exercise DVD in Japan

I had to file this story under ‘D’ for ‘Dude, that’s probably the most gangsterish thing I’m going to see today’ category. While you’re busy doing your second day of your P90x and running imaginary laps on the treadmill at the YMCA, Bob Sapp is busy getting some Japanese soccer mom in shape with his

PRIDE FC is BACK! On Spike TV!

Some days you get good news and other days you get news that makes you want to tell your boss to shove it and drop kick your computer while you simultaneously urinate in the breakroom coffee pot. Today is one of those days. We can all rejoice as we get to see Rampage get muay-thai

Ortiz vs. Coleman planned for Nov. 21

We still don’t know why anyone would fight when they have this waiting for them at home. If Jenna Jameson were in my bed, you wouldn’t even be reading this. In fact you wouldn’t even know what MiddleEasy.com was. I would just rock off her porn star dime and have shopping sprees at Jamba Juice

Rampage cracking on Forrest Griffin…still

I meant to publish this last night but MiddleEasy photographer Steve has me addicted to this More to Love show on FOX. Thank you for allocating an hour of my Tuesday night to watch chicks complain about how they never went to prom. Hell, I never went to prom. Not because I didn’t have a
