The Champion and the Challenger stare down. Both have their hands up and look willing to have a go at each other already. Hendricks has a smile on his face while GSP looks like he a has forgotten how to smile.
Will history repeat itself when the Champ meets Big Rigg at UFC 167 is the question everyone has in their mind. From that tragic night when GSP lost to Matt Serra to today, he has grown as a fighter a lot, but on November 16, he will probably face one of his toughest opponents till now. Continue reading


AdversitiesLife is all about understanding your situation and overcoming troubles. When I injured my hamstring, I thought this would diminish my chances at fighting as it would be difficult to kick for some time at least. As most of you know, ‘Kicks’ are important in a fight, especially when your opponent can perform them without trouble. Continue reading
