Whether it was because of the full moon or the use of his entrance music from his Pride days, Quinton “Rampage” Jackson returned to his old howling form and earned a split decision victory over fellow former light heavyweight champion Lyoto “The Dragon” Machida.

As expected, Machida stayed on the outside throughout the fight, being selective with his strikes. Jackson returned fire with the occasional flurry and his harder shots in rounds 1 and 2 proved to be the difference in a close fight. Machida clearly won round 3, but it turned out to be too little too late and Jackson secured a victory winning 28-29, 29-28, and 29-28 . . . Click here for more

Froch-Abraham Fight Week

By David L. Hudson Jr.

Some fights you just know are going to be good. The matchup is too compelling and the styles too compatible or contrasting. When you match two fighters who love to fight, possess strong punching power and a willingness to engage, then the possibilities are endless. The recipe for remembrance is ripe.

The November 27th showdown on SHOWTIME between former world champions Carl Froch and Arthur Abraham has the ingredients necessary for a classic. Kallie Sauerland, Abraham’s promoter, says that the two fighters “are the biggest punchers and warriors in the tournament … and two of the biggest warriors in boxing today.” Froch’s promoter, Mick Hennessey, said that the fight held in Helsinki, Finland, “could be a fight of the decade candidate.” While promotional hyperbole abounds in the Sweet Science, that statement is not outlandish.
