  • Wisconsin Department of Safety and Professional Services Actively Looking for Inspectors, Referees, and Officials

    Have you ever attended a local mixed martial arts fight here in Wisconsin and thought to yourself, "how can I get involved on ground level of this sport"? Well, now is your chance. The Wisconsin Department of Safety and Professional Services (DSPS) regulates mixed martial arts and boxing events throughout the State of Wisconsin. DSPS is currently in the process of expanding the pool of officials to work at events. The Department is seeking candidates interested in becoming an official and attending an entry-level ABC (Association of Boxing Commissions) certified training course to become a certified inspector or referee. The cost of the course will depend on the number of people ...
  • Anthony Pettis: I'm the number one fighter in the lightweight division

    When Anthony Pettis steps into the cage against Donald Cerrone at UFC on Fox 6 it will have been nearly a year since his last appearance within the Ultimate Fighting Championship. And a lot has happened over that time. Benson Henderson has taken and defended the 155-pound strap against Frankie Edgar, Nate Diaz has ascended to top contender status, and Pettis has found himself battling a rash of shoulder injuries. But according to "Showtime", the one thing that hasn't changed is the fact that he is still the best lightweight fighter in the world. "I'm the number one fighter in the lightweight division," Pettis told WIMMA Today reporter Paul Fladten. "I...
  • Sam Alvey's TUF Blog: Neil Magny Wins, Big Country Continues to Complain

    The episode started with Mike Hill telling the world he was hurt and that his Canadian buddy Ricci would call him out like he did. He just thought they were friends and then to find out Ricci just blatantly playing him, he just wasn't ready for it. The cameras switched to Ricci acting like a little Billy Bad Ass, with his hair parted to the side and his shades on in the house, saying that he "picked this fight because he beat the number one guy and now wanted to beat their number two". As I said in last week's article, that is a bunch of bologna. He picked Mike Hill because Hill was the weakest one left in the tournament, and it was a surprise to all of Team Carwin that he did.
  • Has Roufusport Turned Milwaukee Into Midwest's Unofficial Fight Capitol?

    In the early days of mixed martial arts fighters from around the country flocked to tiny Bettendorf, Iowa in order to learn from legendary champion and coach Pat Miletich. Once described by ESPN The Magazine's Tim Keown as the "unofficial mecca of MMA", future stars like Matt Hughes, Tim Sylvia, and Ben Rothwell were just a few of the competitors that claimed the Iowa gym home. However, as time passed and the sport evolved, many of the combatants began to open gyms of their own and Militech ultimately chose to pursue other passions within the industry. It seemed as if cities like Las Vegas and Albuquerque would relegate Midwestern gyms to second fiddle. But that was before t...
  • College Wrestling: Wisconsin Badgers Upset #25 Hofstra Pride In Season Opener 18-13

    On Sunday afternoon, Nov. 11, the Badgers wrestling hosted No. 25 Hofstra Pride in a non-conference dual in the UW Feld House in Madison, Wisconsin. After an early lead by the Pride, the Badgers bounced back winning six of the final eight matches giving them the lift past the University from Long Island by a score of 18-13. No. 3 Tyler Graff returned to the mat for the first time since the 2010-11 seasons and he won a tough match by a score of 5-3 decision over the No. 13 Pride wrestler Luke Vaith at 141-pounds. Cole Schmitt followed up Graff with a decision victory by overcoming Matt Spataro of Hofstra by a score of 3-0, bringing the team score to 7-6 trailing the Pride by one.
  • Wisconsin MMA Looks Poised to Dominate UFC Landscape in 2013 with Pettis, Koch, and More on Verge of Title Shots

    In many regards, 2012 was a successful campaign for Wisconsin fighters within the Ultimate Fighting Championship. Anthony Pettis brought back the head kick, Ben Rothwell landed the biggest punch of his career, and Chico Camus beat the odds in his organizational debut. And outside of Eric Schafer's second round defeat to Jorge Rivera back in January, Wisconsin fighters went undefeated inside the UFC in 2012. But that stat can be misleading. Injuries served as a big part of this calendar year as Erik Koch, Pettis, and Rothwell all missed out on major opportunities due to health setbacks. But with major fights already lined up, 2013 could truly be the year for Wisconsin MMA.

  • Sam Alvey's TUF Blog: The Semifinals Matched

    So this week's episode started with an explanation from Mr. Snake about his bite heard around the world. He came back stage after the fight and told all of us "I may be a piece of Sh!t for it but I bit him and I did it intentional, I just really didn't want to lose." We all thought it was a weird thing to do but none of us really faulted him for doing it. However, Dana did. Dana was furious that someone would stoop so low as to cheat like that on his show, but he did give Snake the chance to explain himself and Snake told him the same thing he told us. Dana was still upset but he forgave him, and all was back to being right in the world. Now fast forward a day or two an...
