WSOF: Brian Cobb Released From Promotion

The ever changing landscape of MMA shifted again. Instead of an injury causing shift, it appears this new movie was the result of lack of effort. According to a report by Ariel Helwani, WSOF lightweight challenger Brian Cobb has been released from the promotional outfit. After consecutive withdrawals, with no real reason given, WSOF likely grew tired of his antics and cut the cord. Cobb last fought on June 14, 2013 at WSOF 3 against current WSOF lightweight champion Justin Gaethje.


UFC: Holly Holm Ends Rousey Title Reign To Become “The New”

All good things come to an end at some point and for Ronda Rousey her UFC title reign came to a thudding end at UFC 193 at the hands of Holly Holm.   To say Holly Holm’s second round head kick win over Ronda Rousey was an upset is putting it mildly. But what the most shocking is how the fight played out.   Rousey tried, as she has in ever fight, pushing forward and imposing her will on Holm but what she wasn’t ready for was the straight left from Holm that found its target early and possibly broke her nose in the opening round. Using movement and footwork, Holm forced Ronda to chase her…

[Video] Rousey & Holm Get In Shoving Match At Weigh-In

AUSTRALIA – If there was no love loss between Ronda Rousey and Holly Holm, there’s less than zero now. So negative love? Is that such a thing? At Friday’s weigh-in, ahead of UFC 193, the main event combatants engaged in a little scuffle prior to the obligatory pose off. According to Rousey, Holm touched her face, an act of disrespect, inciting her to anger. Once they were separated, Holm appeared to be calm and collected during an interview while Rousey was clearly upset and considerably more vocal with her disgust for her opponent. Hype for the fight or just dislike? You be the judge. Photo courtesy Esther Lin.

[Music Review] Badu Is Back But You Cain’t Use Her Phone…Still

It’s now 2015 and men named Tyrone are STILL taking L’s from Erykah Badu’s 1997 ether breakup anthem, Call Tyrone. Nowadays Tyrone is called “Squirrel” and he still can’t use the phone. If he has one, he won’t have it in hand for long. You Cain’t Use My Phone, the awaited Badu mixtape hit the airwaves this week and is a delicious, sensual story of phones playing the third man in the ring in a relationship on the skids. Can they right the ship? Maybe, maybe not. Track breakdown Cain’t Use My Phone (intro) Hi Badu paints the picture of what’s to come by doing what we naturally do when we call someone, say hello, hi, or whatever…


[New Music] Lil Wayne’s Top Is Down With “No Ceilings 2”

This Thanksgiving, rappers want to give the gift of mixtapes and Lil Weezy aka Weezy F. Baby aka Lil Wayne is no exception. No Ceilings 2, the latest offering under the Young Money banner (whether he wants to be there or not), paints the Hollygrove New Orleans native as the non-popstar. Borrowing beats from Drake, Eminem and The Weekend, Weezy F’s lyrical content, while delivered his usual carefree rhyme flow over today’s hits, says “no chaser” with this shot. The album’s namesake kicks off with a “Back 2 Back” Drake inspired flow over a heavily bass and keys laden beat. Ground breaking? No. Headnod worthy? Maybe if you are a Wayne fan. The par for the course tape…

[Music Review]: Redman Kicks Up More ‘Mud’ To Close 2015

The Funk Doctor Spock is in. After a nearly five year hiatus, Redman makes his return to the hip hop forefront with a new thirteen track LP entitled Mudface.  Released commercially on Friday the 13th, and taking the ‘if it ain’t broke’ approach, Reggie Noble delivers in his signature style of metaphorical 420 references and humble brags layered over catchy, hip hop beats. While Mud doesn’t produce the same heat as past albums Muddy Waters and Whut? Thee Album, it stands on its own with it’s heavily reggae influenced sound, something the masses and main stream will appreciate. Joined by cohorts Runt Dog, Ready Roc and Stressmatic Mud sounds like festival music that will gets the spliffs burning and the hands waving. Track breakdown…
