  1. UFC champion material…

    as I always say: Unless a real sportsman gets to run the UFC, all we'll see is the best fighters in the world, who are liked by Dana White AND who're good ppv cows. While out there some real beasts will never get the chance, because casuals hijacked this plane. Standup KO and they think you're THE man.

  2. great interview, like how karen makes it a conversation, rather than an "interview".

    thanks for covering non-ufc fighters. most fans dont know how incredible bellator talent is, known and unknown.
    cry baby ariel is to journalism what dr phil is to medicine, so im glad i have other better options like this show.

  3. Fuck UFC for letting go of so many great fighters!On the other side, it's a good thing that UFC it's getting some better competition, as it forces them to improve(maybe….) as an organisation.

    Love ya Karyn!

  4. If he doesn't like doing social media i'm glad he doesn't have to anymore. It help fighters to build their name and fanbase but no fighter should be obligated to.

    Im also happy to hear Storm is being tested because he was for sure in roids fighting in Russia.


  5. It's a shame that he couldn't develop a better way to communicate with his fans. Later in his UFC career he started to open up and be silly. Little too late now. His mistake was being quiet and trying to act like fedor. No one bought it. He didn't translate into big $.
