It’s safe to say that No. 4-ranked welterweight Tyron Woodley didn’t put forth his finest performance against Rory MacDonald in the co-main event of June 14’s derided UFC 174 pay-per-view (PPV) event from Vancouver. Losing a one-sided decision to “Ares,” Woodley added fuel to the fire of his critics, which included UFC...

UFC featherweight champion Jose Aldo and number one contender Chad Mendes have been involved in quite the war of words recently, with 'Scarface' becoming a lot more involved than usual. After causing the postponement of UFC 176 due to a neck injury, Aldo was the subject of harsh criticism from 'Money'. Seemingly ticked off, the champion blasted his upcoming opponent, and made accusations of steroid use against the Alpha Male product. Never one to let someone have the last word, Mendes took to Twitter and...

Bellator featherweight champion Pat Curran reclaimed his belt this past March (2014), when he defeated Daniel Straus by way of a fifth round submission victory at Bellator 112. As exciting as the fight was, Straus’s real opponent that night should have been Patricio "Pitbull" Freire, winner of Bellator’s season 9 featherweight tournament. However, the decision was made to rematch Straus with Curran, the man that Straus had taken the belt from. Today, as reported by Combate, fans are learning that...

Countdown To UFC Fight Night 46: McGregor vs. Brandao

Posted on July 12, 2014, 05:55 PM by Mike Drahota
No. 13-ranked UFC featherweight Conor McGregor has caused quite a stir in his short tenure with the promotion, calling out every single top 145-pound contender in an effort to get his name out into the world. That’s certainly worked in a massive way, but “Notorious” has also been out of action since last August, when he tore his ACL during a unanimous decision win over Max Holloway at UFC Fight Night 26. Next Saturday night (July 19, 2014) McGregor will finally get his next chance when he...

Continuing the UFC’s mid-summer fight shift following the abrupt cancellation of UFC 176 last week, surging prospect Abel Trujillo has found an opponent after his original foe Bobby Green filled in for an injured Michael Johnson to face No. 3-ranked Josh Thomson at July 26’s UFC on FOX 12 from San Jose, California. Green vs. Trujillo was moved to August 16’s UFC Fight Night 47 from the Cross Insurance Center in Bangor, Maine, and Trujillo will still fight on the East Coast card. The powerful...

Former UFC light heavyweight champion Rashad Evans has been out of action since a torn ACL forced him from his scheduled UFC 170 co-main event showdown with No. 2-ranked Daniel Cormier. Five months into his recovery, the No. 3-ranked “Suga” is eying a comeback, but he’s not going to take things too fast. Evans discussed his return with Inside MMA, noting that Cormier is still at the top of his list of potential opponents despite their friendship: “Cormier is my boy, man, you know,...

News that Jose Aldo was injured ahead of his UFC 176 rematch with Chad Mendes came at a time where the UFC needed it least. The event was 'postponed' and will go down after UFC 177, as Aldo was unable to compete for an additional 45 days. 'Money' was none too happy about the news, and said the following while on the MMA Hour: "I went there the first time, he has to come here to fight me this time, I do not want to fight in Brazil. I think it's fair that he has to come here. I'm tired of it. If Aldo can't...

It looks like UFC women's bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey may have some stern competition coming up through the ranks, as we learned earlier in the week that the promotion had signed pro boxer turned 7-0 MMA prospect Holly Holm. Dana White had been pursuing the signing for a while, but not as long as he has been talking about acquiring Gina Carano. Last seen getting TKOd by (a likely juicing) Cris 'Cyborg' Justino at featherweight in 2009, the former Strikeforce champion 'Crush' has taken up a career in...

No. 8-ranked UFC middleweight Michael Bisping has seen better days in his eight-year Octagon career. After returning from surgery for a detached retina, “The Count” dropped a lackluster decision to No. 6 Tim Kennedy in the main event of April 16’s The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) Nations Finale from Quebec. Bisping was largely unable to unleash his trademark kickboxing due to Kennedy’s stifling grappling, and the TUF 3 winner will admit that. The Cypriot striker spoke up to Inside MMA's...

With No Fire In His Heart, GSP Is In No 'Rush' To Come Back

Posted on July 11, 2014, 08:22 PM by Brian Cox
Yesterday, former UFC welterweight champion Georges St. Pierre hinted that he would have news, today, regarding his retirement and whether or not he was going to come back. Tonight, on the most recent edition of Inside MMA (July 11, 2014), “Rush” made comment on the subject, however, he wasn’t definitive in his remarks. St. Pierre stated that the sport had stopped being “fun” and that he had lost his “fire” for fighting. The nine time defending champion did, however,...

UFC on FOX 12: Lawler vs. Brown took a big hit today, as it was announced hat Michale Johnson is a scratch for his July 26 (2014) fight with Josh Thomson.  The San Jose fight was set to pit the No. 3 Thomson against the No. 9 Johnson in, what was to have been, an important lightweight bout. Johnson is currently riding a three fight winning streak and a win over “The Punk” would have marked “The Menace” as a contender. However, with Johnson now a bust for the match, as reported...
