Bill Jones Loses the Decision against Marcellino at WSOF 35

Bill Jones suffered a decision loss to Tommy Marcellino tonight at WSOF 35 in Verona, NY. As self prophesied, Bill won over the local crowd showing the heart it takes to go all three rounds on three weeks notice. The crowd was substantially filled in for the undercard so we didn’t experience the typical lack […]

Bellator 118 Main Card

Revel – Atlantic City, NJ Twenty seconds into the Bellator 118 main card, Liam McGeary landed a lead left counter hook that buckled Mike Mucitelli’s knees and sent him straight to the mat. As quick as Mike is out, he’s back, and clearly disappointed he’d been caught. Dan Miragliotta waves off the fight and McGeary […]

Also Starring: Mike Mucitelli

Back in 2010, I was sent to Foxwoods Casino in Connecticut to cover CES MMA’s “Cage of Horrors” event. I’d requested this event in particular because an old grappling buddy of mine was making his professional fighting debut. Mike Mucitelli was set to make his debut against Steve Skrzat, who at the time was 4-0 with […]

After a local advocacy group for victim Kelly Proctor made some noise, Dan was promptly booted […]
