Former UFC lightweight champion Benson Henderson will attempt to take his tenth win inside the Octagon this weekend when he meets the highly-skilled Rafael Dos Anjos in the main event of UFC Fight Night 49. If he's able to win on Saturday, it will mark his third-straight win over a top lightweight. Just prior to that he lost his 155 pound strap to the division's current champion, and Henderson's arch-nemisis; Anthony "Showtime" Pettis. It's clear "Smooth" is one of the top fighters in the weight class but...

After much speculation that Bellator lightweight champion Eddie Alvarez was headed to the UFC to battle Donald Cerrone at September 27’s UFC 178, the promotion has done what former CEO Bjorn Rebney promised but did not deliver and unconditionally released the fighter from his contract. Alvarez was famously left out of action for the majority of 2013 while his messy contract situation was worked out with Bellator. Rebney was supposedly going to let Alvarez walk, but a loophole in the contract wording...

Recently signed Bellator stars Melvin Manhoef and Paul Daley could well be on a collision course. “No Mercy” is currently scheduled to face Doug “The Rhino” Marshall in his BMMA debut, at Bellator 125, and “Semtex” is yet to be booked to face anyone as he prepares for a September BAMMA bout opposite Igor Fernandes. Speaking with The MMA Hour, Bellator president Scott Coker says that the bout between Manhoef and Daley would make sense: "Paul, pending his September 12th fight...

In the last couple months, we have seen many changes to Bellator MMA. The biggest move for the promotion was the firing of former president Bjorn Rebney and the subsequent hiring of former Strikeforce CEO Scott Coker to replace him. Coker was successful in his time with Strikeforce, creating a respected and entertaining promotion. He now attempts to do the same with Bellator, giving the company a new beginning. Since his hiring, the promotion has added a new women’s featherweight (145 lbs.) which could...

Tyron Woodley's Hype Train Could Come Crashing Down In Macau

Posted on August 18, 2014, 07:42 PM by Mike Drahota
No. 4-ranked UFC welterweight Tyron Woodley shot up the 170-pound rankings earlier this year after beating former interim champion Carlos Condit with an injury-marred TKO at March 15’s UFC 171. “The Chosen One” rose to the occasion after campaigning heavily to UFC President Dana White for the bout, but his anticlimactic finish of “The Natural Born Killer” left several question marks. Many thought that Condit was beginning to find his range and timing against the much bulkier...
