It’s not often we talk about ONE Championship on this show, but this week, it was more than justified, as Asia’s biggest martial arts promotion put on a bumper card of fights to celebrate its 10th anniversary. ONE X was a 10-hour, 20-bout marathon of fight action that would have tested even the most avid of fans, but (after missing the first few bouts, which started VERY early in the morning, UK-time) Simon watched all three cards of action, and was gripped by what he saw. Sandhu is over in Dallas, Texas, for WrestleMania, and he’ll bring us bang up to date with his travels upon his return. It ..read more

Not wanting to miss out on the fun, we at The Brit Pack United Nations gathered together to conduct a draft of our own – The Brit Pack United Nations Fantasy MMA Draft. The format was (relatively) simple: * 11 rounds, one fighter per weight class, from women’s strawweight to men’s heavyweight (leaving out the women’s 145 division, due to a lack of depth) * Each team must contain at least one fighter from each of the UFC, Bellator and PFL * Each team is allowed no more than ..read more

UFC 273 was another stellar pay-per-view, with two enthralling title fights that saw both champions retain their titles, while the welterweight bout between Khamzat Chimaev and Gilbert Burns delivered a Fight of the Year contender. On this week’s show, Simon looks back at the big fights, and the big talking points, from Saturday night in Jacksonville as Alexander Volkanovski and Aljamain Sterling defended their belts in very different ways.

UFC 272 preview: Covington, Masvidal, and the grudge match we all needed
The Brit Pack MMA Podcast
by Simon Head
10M ago
It takes something a little bit special to headline a UFC pay-per-view. Usually, that something special is a UFC championship bout. But sometimes, very rarely, there’s a fight that captures the imagination to such an extent that a belt isn’t even needed. Colby Covington vs. Jorge Masvidal is one of those fights. The two former friends and American Top Team training partners have been an integral part of each other’s successes inside the octagon earlier in their respective careers. But the pair have drifted apart following issues within the team at Coconut Creek, Florida. Both were banished fro ..read more

UFC 199 retrospective: The story of Michael Bisping's historic title win
The Brit Pack MMA Podcast

Saturday, June 4, 2016 was a red-letter day in the history of UK mixed martial arts, as England’s Michael Bisping stepped off a movie set on just 17 days’ notice and stunned Luke Rockhold to capture the undisputed UFC middleweight champion at UFC 199. The event was the culmination of Bisping’s career-long quest to capture UFC gold. It was a quest that many had written off years prior. His devastating knockout loss to Dan Henderson at UFC 100 led many to consider Bisping as a busted flush at the highest level. Knockouts that big change fighters forever, and rarely for the better. But Bisping bo ..read more
