For UFC’s ‘other’ Irish fighters, spotlight is dimmer heading into UFC on FOX 14

mmajunkie.com — As Irish MMA continues to wade into unchartered territory, the rapid ascent and borderline omnipresence of Conor McGregor, has, perhaps, obscured the notable progression made by some of his compatriots, who are in action this weekend at UFC on FOX 14. McGregor's quick ascent is to be expected.

For champ Aldo, a challenger like McGregor is a gift from heaven - or possibly hell

mmajunkie.com — It's times like these you wonder how we managed for so long in this sport without a Conor McGregor.

mmajunkie.com — With UFC Fight Night 59 just around the corner, this week's Twitter Mailbag is overflowing with questions about the inimitable Conor McGregor, poor, forgotten Dennis Siver, and of course, former champ Benson Henderson, who seemed to be the last to know that he was fighting Donald Cerrone again on Sunday night.

Junior Dos Santos wins another epic battle, but they aren’t getting any easier

mmajunkie.com — Fortunately for Junior dos Santos, it's not a beauty contest in there. You don't win decisions in MMA simply by bleeding less, by keeping swelling to a minimum, or even by leaving the cage looking remotely similar to the way you came in.

It sprinkled a little and my dog tracked some mud in the house. This horrible winter weather needs to be stopped.

@tomhooover From what I hear, Bookmaker very good for MMA. Usually has best odds. 5Dimes also good (more props). Those two are solid.
