I hope everyone is getting as excited as i am,
I took my first walk threw the "new" Venue and let me tell you i was very impressed!
As fighters you will have that feel of fighting in a professional atmosphere i promise you! this place is huge and we will definitely sell out. from the size of the locker rooms to the feel of the seats this place is just sick.
The Theater can be found upstairs and holds roughly 1400 people! Honestly every seat in the house is great. Front row is so… Continue

That was two of the nastier moments in MMA i've ever ever ever seen.
If you don't know what I'm talking about, i make reference to two limbs.
The arm of Razak Al-Hassan. Look it up.
The leg of Corey Hill. Look it up. And it's on UFC.com. Wasn't part of the televised card.
But if you think the first one's nasty and it turns yer stomach, don't even type "Cor" into google,… Continue

which irritates me to no end (okay, that's a lie, it usually ends when the fights that were on VErsus that i wanted to watch get uploaded to any of the many mma video sites around the internets) but i finally watched the Torres-Tapia fight and... come on.
Now, i was never the hugest boxing fan, seemed a little too formulaic most bouts for me but i remember the first time i watched bantamweights there (different actual weight, i know, but yunno, little dudes) i was astounded. they… Continue

Word number one: nice. The new GFL graphic looks F'ing great. Well done, whoever did that, approved it, coded it up here... all ya'll. sick nasty.
Okay, now I'm not a Dana White basher but this latest bru-ha-ha with two of his marquee fighters, an up and coming heavyweight and, really, a whole camp over some guys not wanting to sign over lifetime rights to use their likenesses to the UFC - most notably, Jon Fitch, who proved himself a tough son of a bitch beyond any doubt in his… Continue

Okay, what were ya'll more surprised by? The fact that Lesnar TKO'd Couture in the second round or how quickly Kenny Florian served up Joe Stevenson (quicker if not as brutally as BJ Penn dismantled the game competitor?)
Demian Meias ju-jitsu was insane, by the way. I felt sort of bad for Quarry since he had to chase his opponent around the ring last fight... maybe he should have brought out the "rock crusher" again?
And Tamdan McCrory & Dustin Hazelett... i'm psyched… Continue

The Global Fight leagues first event “The Harvest” took the fans that packed into the historic IOKA Theater in Exeter NH to the edge of their seats and left them wanting more! If you were not there you missed something special …
18 men worked long and hard for this night, they left it all in octagon, blood, sweat, heart, and pride, but only 9 of them could come out on top.
Chris Fisette was one of those fighters who came out on top at Thursday night’s event against Brain… Continue
