His behavior on Saturday was a clear indication that not only does he pitch with all-or-nothing results, but he also pitches with an all-or-nothing mentality. And the worst part is, he shows no signs of fighting to rid himself of this label. Instead of seeing this weekend as an opportunity to prove he can scratch and claw to keep his team in a game despite a bad start, Burnett let his emotions get the best of him."

Watch this video of UFC fighter Kenny Florian punching Danny Bonaduce in the face multiple times. Florian doesn’t hold back and unloads on the D-List celebrity. I guess Ken Flo wasn’t a big Partridge Family fan."

Eric Gargiulo presents EA Sports Live Broadcast Comes to EA MMA Game posted at, saying, "The hype for EA Sports MMA has been disappointing…until now.

Like last year, Brock Lesnar remains the main attraction to which the company is pinning their hopes of high PPV buyrates. This card marks Lesnar’s return to the promotion following a reportedly life-threatening bout with diverticulitis.
