UFC 2018 year in review

2018 was another epic year for the UFC and with the exception of Connor McGregor and his antics, the 25th year of the Ultimate Fighting Championship probably couldn’t have gone better for the Mixed Martial Arts promotion.

just read that UFC 234 is in OZ at Rod LAver Arena, Whittaker is defending his middleweight title along with the return of the great Anderson Silva, how good will that be???!!

I agree Roy, but as Drew states, she can get away with doing it to him but he cant get away with doing it to her, in this ridiculous world of political correctness we live in, how is that politically correct???

Revisiting my 2018 UFC predictions

Hi Braintrust, thanks for reading. I did initally consider this as Tszyu was born and raised in Russia, but he did start his career (pro career) in Australia and always identified himself as an aussie while fighting, I’m pretty sure not 100% that he became an Australian citizen shortly after coming to Australia. However it did disappoint me when he returned to Russia after his retirement and divorce. It’s really tricky to call him an aussie when he only was one for about fifteen years or so. Bugner would not qualify as his career was started in England and he only had a handful of fights in Australia, very late in his career. Plus Vic Darchinyan is another one to consider for this. Another migrant that came from outside the country (Armenia) that started his pro career in OZ and dominated two divisions. He won the IBF and IBO Flyweight titles with several succesful defences, became the undisputed Super-Flyweight champ in 2008 by winning all the major belts, WBC, IBF and WBA, then the IBO bantamweight title in 2011. Looking at his record, he had more title fight then ever Tszyu or Fenech.

Who is Australia's best boxer; Jeff Fenech or Kostya Tszyu?

have to agree with your prediction of Geelong, looks like them slipping again

Nunes becomes first women's dual champion at UFC 232

Unfortunately I think you correct via Hogan, he probably won’t get it done. But plenty thought the same about Horn v Pacquiao, so anything is possible

Should Horn move up or return to welterweight?

Nice article though I liked.

The five most memorable moments of 2018

I definitely think that Winx should of got a mention in the article, what she did this year was nothing short of amazing, she is the horse equivalent of Usian Bolt.

The five most memorable moments of 2018

True but Mundine rejuvenated the sport like never before. I fear it will die off in 2019, unless we get another polarising figure to lead the interest in the sport

Can Australian boxing survive the post-Mundine era?

Forgot to mention the welterweight champ and the new women’s Flyweight champion, forgiveness please

What’s that, Dingo you got me curious

My bucket list for 2019

I had a fourth article up then taken down, why is this???

Should Horn move up or return to welterweight?

Fenech biggest fight was v Azmah Nelson 2 in Melbourne with a crowd of just under 30000, Mundine v Green 1 beat that considerably. How many pay-per view or free to air fights did Fenech headline???? not fifty I guarantee you that. If not for Mundine, Fenech would be a decent memory

Can Australian boxing survive the post-Mundine era?

Excellent evaluation of my article Rex, maybe you should write an article. I agree with the Boxrec rankings, it seems strange to me that a man that has never fought middleweight officially can out rank a middleweight champion. I honestly think that Super-welterweight is the way to go for Horn as the middleweight will be too big and strong for Horn. Amir Khan would be a good test for Horn or maybe he waits until Dennis Hogan has his shot at the WBO title. Another all Aussie world title fight would be awesome for Aussie boxing

Should Horn move up or return to welterweight?

My personal favourite was when the young roosters halfback got flatten by the warriors forward in the first wnrl game, legendary and made the sport legit in a second

The best women's sports moments of 2018

I think the real question here is if boxing can survive without Mundine???

Please don't do it Choc!

2018 certainly was a year of disappointment but things may get better in 2019
