A great way to break up the week, UFC on Fox Sports 1 will hit us with the UFC Fight Night 29 from Brazil. The top of the card is packed with some of the best and brightest of the Brazilian roster, with Demian Maia and Erick Silva moving closer to a title shot with wins in their respective fights.

Duane Ludwig is the best thing to happen to Team Alpha Male since Urijah Faber! The Muay Thai turn mixed martial artist is transitioning from fighter to coach as the head striking coach from the Sacramento, CA based Team Alpha Male. Ludwig has only been at the helm for less than a year, but Team alpha Male hasn’t looked better.
Few figures are as polarizing as Nick Diaz, and while he isn’t the one to hold the Welterweight strap, he seems to be the focal point of all the talk concerning UFC 158. The title fight isn’t the only piece of action at 170lbs, as it seems the entire division has turned out for this event. Hendricks, Condit, Ellenberger and Marquardt all have a claim to stake and you can bet we’ll be seeing some fireworks in the cage.
On the heels of a decent UFC 148 PPV card, the UFC will deliver some free entertainment packed with talent at this Wednesday’s UFC on Fuel TV 4. With the number one contender spot on the line for the Middleweight division, a couple of weight class shuffles, and some competitive scraps, we’ll have a great mid-week MMA boost, and a chance to turn a few bucks at the expense of the sport books.
Another weekend, another event! This time the UFC will debut a full card on Fuel TV, and while the fight quality isn’t as high as some events, it’s still free. Below we have some fights that I think we can turn a buck on, complete with comparison betting odds, valid props and my general confidence in the fight itself. You’ll notice several fights missing from the list, which is no error. With fights between newcomers, anything can happen, and I’d recommend avoiding wagers on the fights I haven’t listed.
Holy cow it’s mid January and I’m finally starting to get back into my every day rhythm. Ok, I’m lying; I still haven’t found it yet. It’s been a life changing few months for sure, getting to compete on the biggest stage in Mixed Martial Arts was a wild ride for sure! I came up short from the goals I set for myself and it was disappointing for sure. That being said, the six years I spent preparing, training, and sacrificing was worth every second and I’m far from done!
TUF 14 Finale had some great moments as they rolled out the entire 16 man cast (minus an injured Akira Corissani), and allowed everyone to get their shot at a UFC contract. With so many new faces in a budding division, we need to sit down and figure out who’s going to make a splash and who will quickly be swept under the rug. Below are the winners of the undercard and all four finalists in a critique of their performance.
Two new names have been added to the list of Ultimate Fighter season winners at TUF 14 as John Dodson and Diego Brandao became the first Bantamweight and featherweight to win the title. Eight bantamweights and eight featherweights entered the house all vying for the 2 six figure contracts.
