Orlando Fights Through Adversity To Win War on I-4 Again

Adam Markowitz, ArenaFan.com
ORLANDO -- They don't call it the War on I-4 for no reason. Saturday night might have marked the first time that the UFC made its way to Orlando, but perhaps the best fight of the night in the City Beautiful came out of the Orlando Predators. The Preds had to fight through just about everything that an AFL team could have to get through in a record-breaking 77-65 win over the Tampa Bay Storm.

Orlando Fights Through Adversity To Win War on I-4 Again(4/20) ORLANDO -- They don't call it the War on I-4 for no reason. Saturday night might have marked the first time that the UFC made its way to Orlando, but perhaps the best fight of the night in the City Beautiful came out of the Orlando Predators. The Preds had to fight through just about everything that an AFL team could have to get through in a record-breaking 77-65 win over the Tampa Bay Storm.

Jaws' Soul Prevail, Send the Sharks Swimming(4/20) The Jacksonville Sharks didnít make it clear who was starting Saturday nightís game at quarterback against the Philadelphia Soul until about 30 minutes before the game. Granted, anyone who knew who Aaron Garcia figured it would be the future Hall of Famer.

ESPN3 is a Great Way to Watch the AFL(4/16) Ten years ago, in 2004, I wrote an article on ArenaFan called "How I Spent My Friday Night.' It told how I tried to follow an Arena Football game between the Grand Rapids Rampage and the Indiana Firebirds one night on the Internet. My dial-up modem did not make for an easy time of it.

Arizona Keeps Top Spot in AFL Week 6 Power Rankings(4/16) There are no changes in the Week 6 AFL Power Rankings in the top six spots from Week 5, but there was plenty of movement from No. 7 on.

SaberCats Fall Just Short of Handing Arizona Its First Loss(4/13) For the third week in a row, the San Jose SaberCats looked relatively sharp on the field, keeping up with their opponent and showing the potential to pull it out. Yet, they still found a way to end the night in disastrous fashion. After facing three teams in a row with winning records, San Jose has now dropped from a promising 2-0 record to a losing 2-3 record. The SaberCats have not had a record below .500 since the 2011 season, when they finished with a 7-11 record.

Manny Nunez

Emotions Riding High in Tested Loss for LA(4/13) Even after an inaugural home victory over the Portland Thunder last week, it just seems like the LA KISS have yet to be tested. Their first two wins have been against opponents who have had little experience in a different style of football, and many of the players know that most of these games against formidable opponents have to be earned.
