Nick Diaz’s ‘Aim’ Was Never To Be Hated

Posted on July 29, 2014, 07:21 PM by Brian Cox
Resigned to a new three fight contract this past week (July 24, 2014), Nick Diaz appears to have embraced or accepted, not sure which, that he must deal with the media to hype his fights and get what he wants, which is “big show” fights. In support of his “moving forward in the sport” ambitions, Diaz sat down with UFC.com to...

Well, it looks like longtime UFC veteran Joe Riggs’ return to the Octagon was a very short-lived one, at least for now. After being scheduled to face slumping Paulo Thiago at UFC Fight Night 51 in Brasilia, Brazil, “Diesel” has been forced out of the bout after he was hospitalized with hand and leg injuries suffered while cleaning a licensed gun, rendering him unable to fight on the September 13 card. The UFC released a statement on the odd situation this afternoon: "We were made aware that...

Streaking UFC light-heavyweight Daniel Cormier will face the biggest challenge of his storied MMA career, as he squares off against undefeated champion Jon Jones at UFC 178. Jones' ridiculous height and reach advantage over Cormier could be a game changer on fight night, unless DC is able to find some gangly training partners. Luckily for the former Strikeforce GP winner, he has some great training partners over at the American Kickboxing Academy. Check out what DC had to say about his stablemates while talking...

  // Publicação by Alexander Gustafsson. No. 1-ranked UFC light heavyweight contender Alexander “The Mauler” Gustafsson received an extremely unfortunate diagnosis last week when it was found that he had torn the meniscus in his right knee, forcing him out of his highly anticipated main event rematch with light heavyweight champion Jon Jones at UFC 178 on September 27. Gustafsson was immediately replaced by No. 2-ranked Daniel Cormier, an opponent that Jones supposedly wanted...

UFC lightweight Diego Sanchez has been one of the promotion's most exciting fighters in recent years, with his bull-like style and disregard for everyone he fights. 'The Nightmare' suffered an ironic setback in his last fight though, losing a decision to Ross Pearson before being gifted the win by the judges. Although still officially recorded as a win, it's hard to imagine Sanchez getting a very meaningful match at lightweight next time out. Perhaps then, a move in weight class would prove shrewd. 'The Nightmare',...

UFC featherweight contender Chad Mendes has had one hell of a streak going lately; scoring four straight knockouts over Cody McKenzie, Yaotzin Meza, Darren Elkins and Clay Guida, before decisioning Nik Lentz to earn another shot at champion Jose Aldo. All seemed to be on track, before the champion was injured, and the UFC 176 date was scrapped. This paved way to the beginning of a back-and-forth between the two that edged on sensational, and Aldo responded in ways we'd never seen from the usually reserved...

Posted on July 28, 2014, 07:45 PM by Brian Cox
UFC bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey has known nothing but great success since joining the senior circuit in February of 2013. In the 17 months that she’s been with the franchise, Rousey has added four wins to her undefeated record of 10 – 0, while also successfully defending her title three times. Additionally, she has maintained its unblemished, ‘decision free,’ state. Indeed, the only augmentation that Rousey has made to her record is that she has forgone the use of her trademark...
