TuffGnarl.com staff picks: The Best of 2016

We here at TuffGnarl.com are just as exhausted with 2016 as you are. A cavalcade of celebrity deaths, a historically ugly and divisive presidential election, daily terrorist attacks and shootings… The list goes on. Suffice it to say, this year was rough. But in entertainment, 2016 was one of the finest years in recent memory […]

Mowry vs. Eatman: Behind Titan FC 41’s heavyweight curtain jerker

Hanging up the phone, Marino Eatman closed his eyes and silently thanked God he’d turned down seconds at dinner for the last several weeks. Although he still weighed 280 pounds, fifteen past the 265-pound weight limit at heavyweight, it was still a far cry from the 320 pounds at which he fought not long ago. […]

Onyx totally ripped off Miami punks Against All Authority

You can’t criticize Onyx for their taste. Tactfulness, however, is a different matter altogether. The hip-hop duo from Queens, New York—whose anthemic single, “Slam,” helped their 1993 album, Bacdafucup, go platinum—released an EP in 2015 with a title and artwork more-than-eerily similar to the interior artwork of Miami ska-punk legends Against All Authority’s 1996 split […]

The Second Annual TuffGnarl.com MMA Awards

It can be argued with much substantiating evidence that 2015 was the best year yet for mixed martial arts. Seven UFC titles changed hands, legends and forgotten veterans of the sport made successful comebacks and further progress was made with longstanding problems such as weight cutting and performance enhancing drug use. Records, both in-cage and out, […]
