WWE vs UFC: Pro-wrestling has lost it’s edge

Professional wrestling has completely lost it’s edge. To say it’s different from the “golden era” would be the understatement of the century. The ratings have dropped from 6.4′s that they were doing in the late 90′s, to a weekly average of 3.2.

MMA coming to Ontario in 2011!!

This past saturday August 14th, the Ontario government will finally be allowing mixed martial arts to come to Ontario in the year 2011. It has been a long time coming, especially after Dalton McGuinty was against allowing it cause he said it wasn’t an important need to Ontario families.

UFC 117: Silva vs. Sonnen Predictions

Tonight the UFC presents one of the most stacked pay-per-view cards in recent memory. Anderson Silva, Matt Hughes, and Junior Dos Santos are all in action. Let’s get to the predictions!

UFC Middleweight Championship
Anderson “The Spider” Silva .vs. Chael Sonnen

To say that Chael Sonnen has talked a lot of trash would be the understatement of the century. Going into this fight, Silva is obviously the favourite, although some seem to think that Sonnen has a chance if he’s able to take Silva to the ground early. The big story in this fight will be whether or not Silva acts professionally.

His last fight in against Damian Mia was a joke to say the least. Dana White stated publicly that if Silva ever disrespects an opponent like that again, he will be released from his UFC contract immediately. Whether or not that’s simply a scare tactic remains to be seen. But either way, it’s definitely a way to add some excitement to tonight’s main-event. Read moreRead more
