Mayweather Snoozefest No Surprise

Tag: Floyd Mayweather Jr, Events

Though this past Saturday night’s blockbuster boxing PPV pitting Floyd Mayweather Jr. in a rematch with Marcos Maidana was titled “Mayhem,” the actual result was anything but.  Over 12 one-sided rounds devoid of sustained fistic action Mayweather was able to run and juke his way to a unanimous decision.   It was a snoozfest, as boring as a fight as one can envision and the cherry on top of a card filled to the brim with horrible bouts.

Tag: Damon Jackson, UFC, UFC 177, Featured Fighters

We here at Cage Authority are no strangers to the exploits of Dallas-based fighter Damon Jackson.  The former collegiate wrestler has had an impressive streak of success in the cage here in 2014 culminating in defeating former UFC favorite Leonard Garcia to win the Legacy FC featherweight champion this summer.  

Undefeated as a fighter, Jackson’s exploits have caught the eye of the UFC and this Saturday Jackson will make his UFC debut on the PPV card of UFC 177 taking place in Sacramento, CA.  Jackson will be tasked with making his debut on nine days notice and set to take on the ultra-tough Yancy Medeiros.  Not exactly a cake walk of a debut.

The UFC invaded Tulsa, OK for the first time in its storied career and while the headlining bout of UFC Fight Night 49 was a lightweight scrap between former champion Benson Henderson and Rafael dos Anjos, an argument could be made that three North Texas based fighters stole the show.  Granted, it should be noted that Cage Authority is based in Dallas, TX. 

Still, one can not front of the virtuoso performances put on by Matt Hobar, Chas Skelly, and James Vick.
