Two Hawaiian warriors face off in the first PFL event for 2019. Being cousins doesn’t seem to be a problem for them, as both men sound ready for war. Here are my thoughts on the fight from a betting perspective. Ray Cooper Known for his spectacular title run last season where he wiped out Jake…

Alex Volkanovski vs. Jose Aldo Volkanovski’s toughest fight to date is this weekend and while he has performed very well ever since debuting for MMA’s premiere organization in late 2016, he might be at a disadvantage this weekend. Plenty of fans completely wrote off Aldo after suffering back-to-back losses against Max Holloway. He was an…

As Bellator are making more of a name for themselves in Europe, one of the company’s top lightweights heads to Birmingham, England, to take on a relatively unknown regional fighter in Tim Wilde.
