Life long fight fan. Started with my father introducing me to boxing, and years after, I introduced him to MMA. Current writer for Buddhasport.com, covering both boxing and MMA. Very happy to get to be writing about the things I love.
Big fan of the UFC, and contrary to popular belief, Dana White and Zuffa, even though I might rake them over the coals from time to time.
Also, still a huge fan of boxing, even as it enters this current dark age.
Silva or Weidman? Who you got?
Don't think so. Where is he located though? You never know. Thanks for the props on the article!

Levi; if I wanted to post an article, how might I go about doing so? Do I need to be a columnist or Writer? Sorry if that sounds like a stupid question, but I believe this website to be the best forum for intelligence MMA discussions, and I'd like get more involved.
I'm sorry to hear it was deleted. I had thought maybe you were trying to redact it in some way when I wanted to check for responses. I still feel that my comment stands, though. By the very definition, I feel you are way off base.You are acting as if any attributable fault to human error could have been trained out, which I understand, at least most of the time. However, that isn't what a fluke is. Fluke suggests anything that has a PIECE of luck or some chance accident over skill. Now that can be arguable to saying what you had been trying to say, but it is not fully, especially when you considered the Matt Lindland slip not a fluke.
Fluke suggests that either a small part of it or some majority is by some unintended immediate consequence of action, while you're seeming to suggest it's 100% without human error or it doesn't count. Are you saying that Falaniko Vitale intended to make Matt slam his own head on the floor? That was exactly what he was planning, to knock him out with that? Not only that, but you are making a wholly declarative statement by saying NONE, AT ALL, EVER. So you have to actually say that 100% of MMA wins are factored at 100% the exact intended finish, despite even the official uses of words "unintentional" or "accidental" through the sport.
So I guess there IS such a thing as a fluke?
