Throwback Thursday: A Pic From the First UCL Event Ever


February 3, 2003. That was the date of the first ever Underground Combat League event, which I had to sneak into, take notes and pics of discreetly, and write about with idea that I might never get to see another one again.

In the above photo, promoter Peter Storm is fighting pro fighter Kaream Ellington in the main event. Eddy Rolon is the referee, and when Peter refused to tap to Kaream's kimura, his elbow popped and he had to leave to go to the emergency room.

Good times, I tell you. Good times.

Observations From My Couch: TUF Nations Finale


  • When did Nordine Taleb turn into a modern day Travis Fulton? He fought on the TUF Nations Finale, then a couple hours later we watched him fight to get into the House for TUF 19. Dude, slow down!
  • Keep feeding Ryan Jimmo scrubs. I like watching him show off his karate.
  • Props to Leslie Smith for taking that fight on ultra-short notice, but damn did Sarah Kaufman beat her up.
