Rumble Young Man Rumble

Tag: Alexander Gustaffson, Anthony Johnson, News

Before we revisit Saturday night’s upheaval of the light heavyweight pecking order I would like to take a moment to say…I told you so.

Really looking forward to tonight's main event. I think Rumble is going to pull off the win with a stoppage. Just my gut. #UFCStockholm

Robbery in Boston; Sean Spencer drops decision to Cathal Pendred in worst UFC judging ever

Tag: Cathal Pendred, News, Sean Spencer, UFC, UFC Boston

Dallas’ Sean Spencer knew he would have an uphill battle heading into his Sunday bout against Cathal Pendred in Boston.  Despite being the betting favorite and establishing himself as a viable prospect in the UFC welterweight division, Spencer was matched as the clear B-side to Pendred who not only was riding the Connor McGregor coattails behind the “Irish Invasion” of Boston, but Pendred was actually born in Boston.  Spencer had no illusions about the challenge he would face in fighting a fighter who had over 90% of the pro-Irish fight crowd rooting to see him beat the kid from Texas.

XKO 24: The Return of Shporen

Tag: Lior Shporen, XKO, XKO 24, Featured Fighters

It has been nearly a year since the last time Little Elm’s Lior Shporen climbed the steps to enter the realm of combat that is an MMA cage.  The birth of a child and the demands of running his own company leave precious little time to endure the rigors of training.  Not that Shporen relished being away from the cage.  After all, this is a man who devoted countless hours and miles on his car to train with some of the best fighting institutions in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex.  Fighting is in the blood of Shporen which is why no one is surprised that his hiatus from the sport would be short-lived.

Boxing is coming back to Fort Worth, Texas, and once again Jesse Rodriguez and Cavalry Knockout Promotions are bringing CKO5 to the metroplex and it is headlined by two undefeated boxers.  The main event will be Fort Worth’s Jesse “The One” Angel Hernandez (4-0, 4KO’s) who will be taking on the undefeated lighting Ray Ximenez, Jr. (11-0, 3KO’s) from Pleasant Grove, a suburb of Dallas, Texas.  The first night of professional boxing in the metroplex is starting out with a knockout night of fights scheduled on the card which will be held at the Guys and Dolls Ballroom in Fort Worth, Texas.  The undefeated southpaw bantamweight Hernandez will be stepping into the ring against the undefeated and lightning handed Ximenez, who happens to fight orthodox and southpaw.  So come Saturday night, the fans will get to see a full seven fight lineup of fights scheduled before the main event.
