MMA Scribbles Newsletter - ONE Championship All in On Martial Arts- Issue #48

This week, ONE Championship announced that they would be appointing Leo Vieira as their Vice President of grappling and the fact that they're going all in on grappling like that makes the hobbyist grappler in me very happy.ONE Championship is doing a lot of s…


MMA Scribbles Newsletter - UFC 274 Picks-Issue #47

It's worth updating since when I was planning ahead with the original announcements of Charles Oliveira vs Justin Gaethje and Rose Namajunas vs Carla Esparza, they had yet to add Tony Ferguson vs Michael Chandler. Odds are out and updated and there's a nice u…


MMA Scribbles Newsletter - Make MMA Great Again- Issue #46

First, sorry for the late one this week but it's been a crazy time. This one was going to be about Bellator's double header but I'll leave that for the end since something just happened with streaming MMA options that I have touched on before.ONE Championship…


MMA Scribbles Newsletter -Lots of Bellator News- Issue #45

This week Bellator MMA announced that they would be returning to the Mohegan Sun Arena for Bellator 282. This is their go-to location on the East Coast and they did some limited capacity last time they were there, and tickets just went on sale today so, it's …


MMA Scribbles Newsletter - UFC 274 Planning Ahead-Issue #44

The above rematch was announced this week and while it's a bit early for odds at the time of writing this, I'm pretty sure Namajunas will be the favorite to win. Why? Because, every rematch she has ever had she has won.Not only has she won them, but all remat…


MMA Scribbles Newsletter -YouTube and MMA- Issue #43

Streaming MMA Events is a Great Way to Supplement the DemandEveryone starts small, right? MMA has ,and in some circles still fights an uphill battle for growth and acceptance as a sport. Yes, the UFC is now the standard vernacular for the casual fan referring…


MMA Scribbles Newsletter -Some Housekeeping- Issue #42

Some housekeeping notes about future content.First, most of my written work will be up at MyMMANews moving forward. I'll still be contributing to One37 PM and Sherdog when they have work for me or to give fighters some exposure but most of my content will be …


MMA Scribbles Newsletter - Bellator 275- Issue #41

Bellator's show in Dublin last weekend might have gone under the radar for the modern MMA fan but it was an event you probably should go back and watch. The main event was Gegard Mousasi vs. Austin Vanderford who was undefeated before he ran into the current …


MMA Scribbles Newsletter- Fight Judges and Match Making - Issue #40

UFC 271 came and went on Super bowl weekend. I know my picks have been trash, but I should know better than to do parlays. Especially ones of more than two fights because only one of the three underdogs won when Tai Tuivasa dropped Derrick Lewis in the early …


MMA Scribbles Newsletter - UFC 271 Picks- Issue #39

Might as well start with this, the picks for last week went south for Bellator 273. I wouldn't tell anyone to play something I wouldn't and I did. So if you made that play, rest assured I lost too. Sorry about that but it just goes to show no matter how much …


MMA Scribbles Newsletter - Bellator 273 Parlay Pick- Issue #38

I know it's cliché and I know it's sort of a degenerate move but I like the dogs on the prelims of Bellator 273. By that, I mean the underdogs because one is a staple in the promotion who always brings it in Saad Awad, the other a former champion in Darrion C…


MMA Scribbles Newsletter -The One After UFC 270- Issue #37

My picks from the last newsletter fell out because the bout between Rodolfo Viera and Wellington Turman got scratched last minute due to illness. However, I broke event since I did a prop bet for the main event to end via decision, so it wasn't all bad. Still…


MMA Scribbles Newsletter-UFC 270 Main Card Picks - Issue #36

This year, I want to start submitting my main card picks for as many MMA events as possible, not just UFC events. For those that listen to Coast-2-Coast Combat Hour, you know that on the week of an event, mainly UFC pay-per-views I do my picks with my cohost …


MMA Scribbles Newsletter-IT'S TIME! - Issue #35

Not that it should matter because there has been plenty of MMA and grappling to watch. But enough about that since that was part of last week's newsletter. This week, we got some fights to watch and they get going mid-week right on YouTube with Invicta FC 45.


MMA Scribbles Newsletter -New Year, New You- Issue #34

Here we are in 2022. One thing that grinds my gears as MMA and the UFC become more popular is the constant complaint that there is no UFC for X amount of weeks. Are you an MMA fan or a UFC fan?Because there is always something going on in combat sports. On th…


MMA Scribbles Newsletter: Living in a Simulation - Issue #33

Are we living in a simulation?Or, has Jake Paul used his fame to make money off of a formula that makes him, and his opponents a lot of money? I think the latter might be true, he has knocked out former MMA champions in Ben Askren and Tyron Woodley. I think i…


MMA Scribbles Newsletter - Issue #32

The last pay-per-view of the year for the UFC. I know Dustin Poirier lost but his namesake still holds true for him, Charles Oliveira, and Juliana Peña when you look at how they got to be in the cage for UFC 269, regardless of the outcome. Check out the piece…


MMA Scribbles Newsletter - Issue #31

Triller Fight Club's Triad Combat came and went and while I write this, whether or not it was a success or failure remains to be seen. The rule set created is meant to even the playing field between MMA fighters and boxers and I don't know if it did that. Coi…


MMA Scribbles Newsletter - Issue #30

Bellator went back to Dublin last week and while the local fighters in Peter Queally and James Gallagher didn't have their way, the event as a whole was fantastic. Pedro Carvahlo also managed to get back in the win column after having a rough patch of two los…


MMA Scribbles Newsletter - Issue #29

Dana White is a promoter, a very good one. So, of course he's going to say something like his Contender Series (DWCS) program is producing the best fight library since Pride Fighting Championships (Pride FC). After all, Pride was his competition back in the h…
