    MMA Contender in Maxim Hot 100

    Tue, 2014-01-07 22:56 — Benjamin Bieker

     The world of MMA is becoming more mainstream in more ways than one, because a lot of women associated with the sport are vying for the top spot in the yearly pole. People that have topped the pole were Jessica Alba, Olivia Wilde, and Eva Longoria. Those are women that have defined the ideal of sexiness for the last few decades, and if someone can top that list associated with the sport of MMA it is definitely a step up for the sport in the world of recognition.

    Dominick Cruz Injured Again

    Mon, 2014-01-06 20:56 — Benjamin Bieker

     There goes two years of rehab down the drain, because just three weeks out from his title unification bout with interim Bantamweight champion Renan Barao, Dominick Cruz has torn his groin. Now, he has vacated the title, and Barao was given sole custody of the UFC Bantamweight champion. This is something he had waited so long for, but it is most likely not the way he wished it went down. Barao does not have time to celebrate though, because he still has a fight three weeks away and it comes against a past foe.

    Winners' Paths Clear After UFC 168

    Mon, 2013-12-30 11:46 — Benjamin Bieker

     While the top three fights at UFC 168 had major implications on their respective divisions, the turnaround for the winners seems to be short and sweet. Chris Weidman stopped Anderson Silva by checking a leg kick that broke his leg and the internet. Travis Browne became on of the only men to stop veteran Heavyweight fighter Josh Barnett and it only took one minute. Also, Ronda Rousey put down Miesha Tate for the second straight time with an armbar although it took a bit longer.

    Heart of a warrior

    Fri, 2013-12-20 15:03 — ALFREDO BORREGO

    Sorry, you need to install flash to see this content.

    It has been said that anyone can fight fresh, but a true warrior will stay calm at the helm during the worst of storms. That was the case on December 7th at the Filipino community center. Harvey Nakamoto vs Jon Barnard was Elite Cage fightings main event of a 15 fight card. Harvey shown above second from the left, had come down with a serious case of bronchitis and was pushing a 103 degree fever the day before the fight. Yet when asked by his coach and team to surrender the match and forfeit on the grounds of health, Harvey Nakamoto refused with a full heart and went ahead and faced his opponent. What followed was one of the greatest displays of heart courage and sheer will power. Harvey Nakamoto went in only one direction, forward. Forward into a barrage of punches and kicks, forward into a healthy strong opponent for fifteen minuets Harvey Nakamoto showed all in attendance the true meaning of martial arts, to press on with no regard for fear or danger, to press forward even if it means your death, to stand when you have no strength to stand, to fight until the last bell sounds. Harvey Nakamoto lost a unanimous decision that night but won the respect of the entire Hawaiian MMA community. I asked Harvey Nakamoto After the fight, why he went through with the fight knowing he had bronchitis and a high fever knowing he was risking more then a loss of record but a loss of life. He answered the only way a Team Nakamoto Warrior would "Because i couldn't let down all those who helped me prepare for this fight, i couldn't let down all my friends family and fans who came out to support because Nakamotos don't retreat, Nakamotos don't surrender."
