Moraga Ready For the Worst To Be The Best

When a fighter’s training is their instinct, even in the worst of times, that’s when they’ve become truly dangerous.

This past December at UFC on FOX: Dos Santos vs. Miocic, the times were looking pretty grim for UFC flyweight John Moraga in the first round against Willie Gates. In front of his hometown crowd in Phoenix, Moraga ate a low kick to the cup and tried to get the referee’s attention for a stop in the action. No break would come, but a straight right from Gates would and it dropped Moraga. In a flash, Gates was on Moraga’s back, threatening a rear naked choke and Moraga needed to get his wits about him quick to fight off the huge upset loss . . . Click here for more at UFC.com

Phillipe Nover: The Manila Redemption

There is something to be said about the power of redemption and second chances.

The comeback is a storyline deeply ingrained in the culture of sports, as the athlete in the pressure of the moment has already dealt with adversity or a setback that took them away from something they’d invested passion and effort into. Simply making it back to do that thing they do one more time is not only a testament to their mental fortitude, but proof they refused to be denied the chance to reclaim what was once lost and now found once again . . . Click here for more at UFC.com
