Who should Khabib Nurmagomedov face to go 30-0?

The last time the UFC were on Fight Island, we saw the end of arguably the greatest career in mixed martial arts history. Khabib Nurmagomedov took just two rounds to submit Justin Gaethje at UFC 254 in October to move to 29-0 professionally, before retiring in the octagon post-fight in honour of his father. Abdulmanap […]

Fights to make in 2021- Max Holloway vs Zabit Magomedsharipov

This is a fight that many MMA fans would have been expecting to be for the title not so long ago, but as it stands that won’t be the case. Max Holloway is in the conversation for greatest featherweight of all-time, with three successful title defences and wins over the likes of Jose Aldo (twice, […]

Fights to make in 2021 – Colby Covington vs Jorge Masvidal

Is there anything that fans in MMA love more than a true grudge match? Khabib Nurmagomedov vs Conor McGregor, Chuck Lidell vs Tito Ortiz, Rampage Jackson vs Rashad Evans. These are some of the biggest rivalries in MMA and UFC history, that all led to must-see fights during their careers. In the welterweight division, Kamaru […]

Fights to make in 2021 – Conor McGregor vs Justin Gaethje

The names involved alone should make your mouth water at the prospect of this fight taking place in 2021. The biggest star in the sport, Conor McGregor, stepping into the cage with the most entertaining fighter in the sport, ‘The Highlight’ Justin Gaethje. Two unbelievably gifted strikers, who have a habit of knocking people out […]

Fights to make in 2021 – Israel Adesanya vs Jon Jones

2021 is promising to be the biggest year in UFC history in terms of match ups, but also potentially in super fights too. President Dana White has already announced that Israel Adesanya will move up to light heavyweight in March to take on Jan Blachowicz in a champion vs champion fight, as he looks to […]

Fantasy Fight: Demetrious Johnson vs Deiveson Figueiredo

2020 is going to be remembered fondly for what Deiveson Figueiredo does as the king of the flyweights. Figueiredo is currently 3-0 for the calendar year with stoppage wins over Joseph Benavidez twice and Alex Perez in his first title defence at UFC 255 and is set to make a 21 day turnaround to defend […]

Jon Jones vs Israel Adesanya

It’s the rivalry in MMA right now and it’s between two fighters who aren’t even in the same weight class. The consensus greatest of all time in Jon Jones is undefeated in the UFC barring a silly disqualification in a fight he dominated way back in 2009, with the only other blemish on his record […]

Khabib Nurmagomedov vs Georges St-Pierre

When you think fantasy fights, you often think of the best to ever do it against the best of the current generation. What if the best of the current generation *is* is the best to ever do it? There is a very, very strong argument that Georges St-Pierre is the best mixed martial artist of […]

Alexander Volkanovski vs Henry Cejudo

Despite the controversy around his most recent win, Alexander Volkanovski has cemented his legacy as one of the best featherweights ever. At UFC 251, Volkanovski beat Max Holloway via a super-close decision making it back-to-back dubs against the Hawaiian. Those wins followed on from his win over Jose Aldo, meaning he’s beaten the consensus greatest […]

Conor McGregor vs Tony Ferguson

A fight that is more likely than any other I’ve covered so far in this series, is still super unlikely to ever been seen live in the flesh. Two of the most enigmatic characters in MMA history. One is by far and away the biggest star the sport has ever seen, while the other is […]

Georges St-Pierre vs Robbie Lawler

Two of the best Weltwerweight champions ever, fighting the same opponents and during the same generation and yet somehow, they never crossed paths. Georges St-Pierre was the reigning Welterweight World Champion in the UFC between 2008 and 2013, succesfully defending his belt 9 times before vacating. Robbie Lawler immediately fought for that belt and while […]

Fedor Emelianenko vs Brock Lesnar

The consensus greatest heavyweight of all time Fedor Emelianenko will always be remembered as “the one who got away” for UFC fans. The legendary heavyweight dominated the sport for over a decade reigning supreme as the PRIDE Heavyweight Champion, being the first and last WAMMA Heavyweight Champion as well as winning multiple Open-weight tournaments. He […]
