The Etiquette of the Cage

The Ripples of Rousey’s Loss

I've been back and forth about posting this... but here are my comments about the Rousey loss. To me, Rousey losing could be the worst...

Individual Sport?

The walkout shirts were slightly different, I believe based on country of origin, but that was also very confusing, as I saw many guys I know to be american wearing other colors, I believe Jeremy Stephens, born in Iowa and training in So Cal came out in the colors of Mexico, so there is always that.

Loophole in the UFC’s Reebok Deal?

Has Sam Alvey found a loophole in the UFC's Reebock Deal? At UFC Fight Night 65, Alvey displayed his sponsor's tag with a spray-tan tattoo. What a shot! I like the tongue-in-cheek rebellion that Alvey is making.

On the Brink of the UFC – 5 Fighters

Many fighters are willing to give up everything to get into the spotlight, but very few are on the brink of the UFC. Even with all of the controversy surrounding the new Olympic style random drug testing policy and the Reebok sponsorship, the UFC is still the king of the cage.
