The Best Resource For Mixed Martial Arts MMA

Werdum vs Volkov, and what makes a fighter Actually Good?

69 0

Connor Ruebusch and Patrick Wyman preview UFC London and argue about the difference between fighters who are Perfectly Fine, and those who are Actually Good.

Your latest edition of Heavy Hands is a very spicy meatball. We cover fights. We shout at each other about one of them, and it’s not even the one we care about. Then we talk about some of our favorite battles from MMA’s mythic past. Topics include:

  • Werdum’s Brazilian Muay Thai vs Alexander Volkov’s cold-blooded kickboxing
  • A big argument about whether or not Jan Blachowicz is Actually Good
  • Related to the former, the long-awaited return of Passionate Pat, and his smirking sidekick, Incorrigible Connor
  • Tom Duquesnoy first steps on the comeback trail
  • The impending UFC debuts of hot prospects Hakeem Duwodu and Magomed Ankalaev
  • Great fights that stand the test of time, and a conversation on the major differences between modern MMA and the bloodsport of old
