The Fights Gone By podcast provides a tongue-in-cheek look at the world of combat sports and martial arts generally. We examine the constant stream of bizarre news which moves at break neck speeds in mixed martial arts, examine match ups, analyse fights, and answer listener mail. FGB is entirely independent and is made possible by listeners. Join the Patreon to hear lectures on the history of combat sports from boxing's heavyweight championship to the founding and growth of the UFC and PRIDE.
Well, that weekend of fights really was... something.
Jack Slack's written work for The Fight Primer, Vice Sports, and other publications.
If you were asked to come up with an overarching theme for the weekend’s MMA action, you might very well pick “disappointment.” But another theme that stuck out was “movement issues” and so let us examine some of the ways in which fighters were confounded by footwork this weekend.
Once in a while a fight comes along that carries enough hype that it deserves a Primer. In these features we combine written analysis with extended video previews.
