Team Alpha Male: Life After Duane “Bang” Ludwig

August 12, 2015 // 0 Comments

The following is a guest post by EverythingLatest. No one can dismiss the impact that Duane “Bang” Ludwig had on Team Alpha Male during his short tenure at the Sacramento gym as Head Coach. His training methods were revolutionary, and his eye for detail is something to behold. Working with TJ Dillashaw, Ludwig was able to take potential and turn him into arguably one of the best pound-for-pound fighters in the world. His reign at the top, most recently saw him demolish Renan Barao for the second time at UFC on Fox 16 with a fourth round stoppage of the former champ. Developing the [...]

November 15, 2014 // 0 Comments

It’s hard to believe that, including today, there’s only three weeks of regular season games left on the schedule. It has been a fast, exciting season. It’s the 12th week of the 2014 season, but it is the first week of this SEC Gameday Preview series here on Vortex Effect. There probably won’t be another one the rest of this season. This is a trial run of what we hope to do on a weekly basis (during the season obviously) next year. So let us know what you think, and if you have a problem with it. We are primarily a video game, wrestling, and entertainment site, so [...]

EA Sports UFC: Jose Aldo vs Anthony Pettis Gameplay

May 20, 2014 // 1 Comment

EA Sports has released a new gameplay video for their upcoming UFC title pitting Jose Aldo up against Anthony Pettis. Check it out below. EA Sports UFC is set to release on June 17th for PS4 and Xbox One. Smith’s Sentiment: I have to give it to EA, the game looks absolutely amazing and really blows their previous MMA title out of the water (and looks like it will play a whole lot better too). Easily the most realistic models we’ve seen in a sporting game yet, and really depresses one when you see what can be done and then look at some of the horrible models that have graced other [...]

UFC Fight Night Brown vs Silva Live Results

May 10, 2014 // 0 Comments

Tonight the UFC makes it’s way to Cincinnati, Ohio for the latest in its Fight Night cards.  The main event features two welterweight fighters looking to get closer to a title shot with a win.  On one side of the octagon you have Matt Brown who is riding a six fight win streak with 5 knockouts in that span.  Across from him will be a top prospect by the name of Erick Silva.  Silva has shown himself to be a very explosive fighter with multiple wins coming in under a minute.  The flip side of that is his over eagerness to finish can cost him to take unnecessary counter punches, most [...]

UFC 172: Jones vs Teixeira Preview

April 26, 2014 // 0 Comments

The UFC rolls into Baltimore, Maryland tonight for UFC 172; a card that will feature Jon Jones defending his title against Glover Teixera.  Jones is coming off a fight that for the first time in his career he looked human when he defended against Alexander Gustafsson.  For the first time in his career he wasn’t able to come in and dominate his opponent and now that the aura of invincibility has been stripped away people want to see what is next for Jones.  While it may sound like a strange thing to say, I think him being taken to the limit in his last fight was great for the stock of [...]

April 19, 2014 // 3 Comments

Tonight the UFC returns to Fox for a card that will determine the next contender for Cain Velasquez’s Heavyweight title.  Travis Browne meets Fabricio Werdum in a 5 round fight that more than likely won’t make it that far.  Werdum is one of the best Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu practitioners in the sport, as well as a black belt in Judo and Muay Thai.  14 out of 17 of his wins have come via finish and he has the distinction of being the man who ended Fedor Emelianenko’s 10 year unbeaten streak.   Browne has finished 14 of his 16 victories and his lone defeat came after an injury [...]
