Renzo Gracie, Eugenio Tadeu and the riot that got MMA banned in Rio de Janeiro
(mmafighting.com)
MMA is a popular sport in Brazil today, but that wasn’t the scenario back after Pentagon Combat in 1997. The sport was still growing, and the events basically matched fighters to defend their martial arts inside a ring. Jiu-jitsu dominated the scene, but the luta livre competitors wanted their revenge for their losses six years before. Pentagon Combat was created to feature more classic battles between jiu-jitsu and luta livre on Sept. 27 of that year, but the night didn’t end well...

Where Jones vs. Gustafsson ranks with the greatest fights ever
(mmafighting.com)
There's a reason some sayings get to be old sayings, and that's because they're probably true. So after my fifth viewing this week of the Jon Jones vs. Alexander Gustafsson fight, my conclusion is that beauty is in the eyes of the beholder. When the fight ended, Joe Rogan said that this may be the greatest light heavyweight championship fight in UFC history. It was a great, dramatic fight, and when it was over, I thought Jones won rounds four and five and Gustafsson won round one. As far as the other two rounds, they were close enough to go either way. Upon multiple viewings, I'm even more torn about who won rounds two and three. Like in any close fight, nobody was robbed. In this case, whoever got the "W" should consider himself lucky...
