Don't Forget; The Godslayer by Dave Walsh on Sale Now


Yes, I'm at it again.

As you may or may not be aware of, I, your fair and sometimes honest curator of this fine site, have released a novel. The novel, The Godslayer, is a work of fiction (duh) following the life and times of a fighter by the name of Alek Turner who was at one time one of the best fighters in the world before age caught up with him. It takes a look inside of the mind of a fighter who was at one point on top of the world and is now rapidly-approaching his 40s and is seeing his legacy go up in flames along with his family.

He's given one last shot at glory to return to the ring to face an old nemesis, but along the way discovers what he had been missing by spending time with his children. He is faced with some tough life decisions and you get an inside look into his mind and the machinations of the MMA world.

The Godslayer was just recently featured on and should shortly be appearing in some other publications as well. For those with an eReader, you can purchase the DRM-free Kindle edition for just $3.99, or if you prefer paperback you can pick up a copy for just $12.99.


Video of Badr Hari's Release From Prison

Oh Badr, when will you learn? I'm not sure that he'll ever learn or that we'll ever get to see what he could truly be in the ring. With that being said, Badr Hari fans worldwide are rejoicing as he has been once again temporarily released from prison, under the same circumstances as before, before his trial can start. This video by Dutch paper AT5 shows him coming home with girlfriend Estelle Cruijff/Gullit by his side. She definitely stands by her man, right?


The Reem is Back Yet Again

There aren't many fighters in the UFC that a Kickboxing fan can look at anymore and say, "yeah, that is my guy right there." The same can be said for fans of Japanese MMA or even non-Zuffa MMA and Alistair Overeem embodies all of those things right now. In a way, I look at Alistair Overeem as the last true hero in MMA, something that I know a lot of people might not agree with, but he is. Sure, talk about horse meat, steroids, backne and whatever else all you want, but at the end of the day, Alistair Overeem is a monster -- a talented one at that -- and he could do amazing things in the UFC. If he does is still yet-to-be-seen, but his camera crew is still following him and we're still supporting him.
