I’d like to welcome you all to the first edition of The Basement Breakdown. After spending the last four years watching, arguing, debating, predicting, and breaking down fights with friends, family, or whoever would listen in my basement, I decided that it was only appropriate to name the column after my time spent on my navy blue couch. Now with that said, lets breakdown this card.
Icon Sports: Unstoppable is headlined by an intriguing main event as Jason "Mayhem" Miller defends his Icon middleweight title for the very first time against Frank "Twinkle Toes" Trigg. The always exciting, always eccentric Mayhem comes into this fight hot off of a submission win over Robbie Lawler in September. Mayhem has won nine of his last ten fights, with eight of those victories coming by way of submission. His only lose came at the hand of current UFC welterweight champion Georges St.Pierre way back at UFC 52 in April of 2005. Since that fight Miller has won five straight fights with submission wins over Mark Moreno, Falaniko Vitale, Stefan Gamlin, Loduen Sincaid, and as mention earlier Robbie Lawlyer. It was announced just a few days ago that Miller will be joining Team Quest full time from here on out and this will be his first fight with his new team in his corner.
