#TeamKnee are going head-to-head again, predicting the future, specifically UFC Fight Night – Cowboy vs. Cowboy.
It was definitely the biggest card BCMMA had put together on paper, but it wasn’t the ‘bigger’ names […]

A few months back, Ronda Rousey’s immediate future figured heavily in the ‘Knee podcasts outlandish 2016 predictions. At the turn of the year, all the MMA media outlets were cock-a-hoop for a glorious UFC 200 for the decorated judoka. I was a lone dissenting voice, predicting we wouldn’t see Rousey in the cage at all in 2016. In the light of her tearful interview on the Ellen show, we might not see her fight again.

This got me thinking two things: first was how Ronda Rousey has helped the female division of this sport leap to new heights, the other was “Why on earth am I in this café?”.
Prior to Warrior Fight Series 5, we gave you five things to watch. In hindsight, we were pretty much on the money.
Patience can be a virtue. We at The Phantom Knee held back on writing a preview for today’s Warrior Fight Series 5 show, going down at York Hall, Bethnal Green. Something told us not to pull the trigger until after the weigh-ins. We’re glad we did.
The #TeamEatonArmy got some bad news today. We wanted to know what happened, what’s next and why we should still be attending BCMMA 14.
