UFC 171 Preview Stuff: Robbie Lawler in Action


Thanks to champ Georges St. Pierre hitting the road and leaving a cloud of dust in his wake, there's now a vacant UFC belt - and on Saturday at UFC 171, Robbie Lawler and Johny Hendricks are going to slug it out to determine who deserves the right to wear it.

Fun fact: I was cageside for Lawler's first UFC appearance, which was at UFC 37. He was a beast then, and he's a beast now. (If you want to read something I wrote about that experience, go here.)

Anyway, the UFC was kind enough to post some vids of Lawler training, so watch and enjoy.

NYFE 2 "Ides of March" Preview, Part 2


Another day passes, and another day we're closer to the New York Fight Exchange's next show. As I said yesterday, doing a preview for Saturday night's event at the Amazura Concert Hall in Jamaica, Queens, could be problematic given the amount of changes an amateur fight card undergoes up until fight time. But the NYFE event is a big, important one in the New York MMA scene, so it deserves some sort of coverage.

Here, then, are more videos of some of the fighters on the card in action. Enjoy!
