Cage Talk by Jimmy Page
hurtbusiness review of the best
MMA book ever
Cage Talk – it does exactly what it says on the cover.
UK journalist Jimmy Page meets people who know the sport inside out and
lets them tell it like it is. Over two hundred and fifty one pages, we
get the views of fighters, promoters, referees and doctors.
M-1 in the UK
The M-1 Challenge is coming to
Nottingham on 27th September 2008.
This could be a bigger deal than the UFC coming to our shores. I know
this sounds like the ravings of a mad man- but stick with me. You should
be very excited.
Cage Rage 24:Unbelievable or did
you Feel the Pain?
As always after a Cage Rage- the MMA message
boards are buzzing. The promotion divides opinion like no other. Is it
the pinnacle of UK or a nightmarish post Guy Ritchie dystopia. Here-
looking at the main areas of dispute, we’re going to try and get to the
beef. Cage Rage- is it sweet as a nut guv, or a load of old pony?
get your freak on
Cage Rage have put on some of the
greatest fights ever seen on these isles and have been at the forefront
of promoting UK Mixed Martial Arts.
Unfortunately, they also love a freakshow.
Thing is- if you’re going to do it- you may as well go the whole hog. I
accept that Francis was a ‘proper’ boxing champ in his day- so what? If
you’re trying to attract newbies- you need REAL big names with star
quality who will bring something new to the table.
decision time- can you
really judge a fight?
CHEATS-BOLLOCKS-WHAT FIGHT WERE THEY WATCHING?-FIX
WHERE DO THEY FIND THESE CLOWNS?-BULLSHIT-WE WUZ ROBBED.
This is a small selection of the comments made whenever a
fight goes to the judges’ cards.
Are the rules fundamentally flawed?
Are the judges really the myopic set of corrupt piss artists that crowds
claim they are?
What can we learn from other sports?...
UFC 70- the view from
the cheap seats
The UFC comes to
Manchester to set up shop at the house that Ricky built. The mighty
Yanks were going to march in and win our hearts and minds with a show
like we’d never seen before. And you know what- they pretty much pulled
do you love the UFC?
The Ultimate Fighting Championship- the original, but is it the best?
One thing’s for certain, you can’t ignore the UFC. It's the 600lb
gorilla of MMA. He's in your cage and he's eyeing up your banana. Many
of us can’t quite make up our minds about the daddy of all promoters.
Find out exactly where you stand by taking the hurtbusiness: do
you love the UFC? test..
time for heroes
UK MMA is under attack. It's time to
stand up and fight for your right to fight...
this is how it
feels when your world means nothing at all
Are you a champion? I don’t mean in some metaphorical
way. Are you literally a champion. You may be and not even know it. The
proliferation of governing bodies mean that more people every day are
being recognized as World Boxing Champions...
