WSOF 14 Alberta, Canada – Jake Shields vs. Ryan Ford Full Fight Review

Posted on

Check out my recap and commentary of the Jake Shields vs. Ryan Ford fight. I also use this opportunity to show off my UFC cards and memorabilia for each fighter.

Jake Shields is from my home town of San Francisco. I was pretty disappointed after his loss against Lombard and after the UFC cut him. Luckily, he landed pretty quickly with the WSOF and put on a submission and grappling clinic against Ryan Ford.

One of the best things about Shields is that he keeps pressing and moving forward. Even against monsters like Ford and Lombard, Shields looks like he has no fear. In the end, it was a rear naked choke submission. Congrats to Jake Shields and I’m hoping for more fights to come.


UFC Ebay Show Off – 5/23/2014 – Topps Relic Lot – 61 Cards (Dan Henderson, Daniel Cormier) Part 3

Posted on Updated on

Here’s part three. I filmed this a few weeks ago. Great timing because two of the cards in this lot are fighting this weekend, Dan Henderson and Daniel Cormier.

I was really excited about this set because it has a few dual relics, Tito Ortiz, Stephan Bonnar, Glover Teixeira, Cain Velasquez, and Gilbert Melendez. It doesn’t have any autographs though.

Getting back to the co main event UFC 173, DC has this one in the bag. He’s bigger, faster, and much stronger. I admire Hendo and everything he’s done, but this is a tough match up for him.

Parts 4 and 5 coming soon!

Total price for the entire lot was $61.

UFC Ebay Show Off – 4/17/14 – 2013 Triple Threads Lot (Miocic, Robbie Lawler, Gilbert Melendez) Part 2

Posted on

This is part two of one of the most amazing relic lots that I bought to date. This second batch has no triple threads (sorry for the misleading title) but has mainly gear and mat relics. The highlights Gilbert Melendez, Robbie Lawler, Stipe Miocic, and Rashad Evans to name a few. I don’t have any of these cards, so they will be a nice addition to my collection.

Total price for this lot was around $20.

UFC (TTM) Autographs Show Off – 3/10/2014 – Two of the best Lightweights (feat Gilbert Melendez + 1 more former champ)

Posted on Updated on

Today I received two UFC through the mail (TTM) autographs. Both came back in a very short time within a few weeks. The one I was really excited about was Gilbert Melendez. He resigned with the UFC, will be doing the Ultimate Fighter against Anthony Pettis, and has a lot to prove. He signed a total of four cards and made them out to me.

The other one I was a bit disappointed with as you can tell in my video.

Thanks for watching!
