He’s now won four out of his past five bouts, but that one loss, a UFC on FOX...

UFC middleweight contender Michael Bisping has his hands full as he prepares to face Cung Le at UFC Fight Night 48. Scheduled to face the Sanshou black belt in Macau, China, 'The Count' would do well to keep his focus on the American Kickboxing Academy student. All this, and Bisping is still looking towards a potential bout with another former Strikeforce...

Posted on July 23, 2014, 11:25 PM by Brian Cox
27-year-old, Jessica “Evil” Eye is currently ranked No. 6 in the UFC’s bantamweight division and although 0 – 1 – 1 (NC) in the senior circuit, the 10 – 2 professional Ohio native believes she’s the one to welcome Holly “The Preacher’s Daughter” Holm to the UFC. Stating two weeks ago (July 11, 2014) on Inside MMA that she’s never picked her opponents and she “doesn’t really want to start now,” the undefeated (7 – 0)...

As news broke Wednesday night (July 23, 2014) that Alexander Gustafsson was a scratch for his September 27 title fight with light-heavyweight champion Jon Jones, the UFC quickly filled the UFC 178 vacancy with an equally impressive match, as the senior circuit tapped the No. 2 ranked 205-pound behemoth Daniel Cormier as “The Mauler’s” replacement. This is a fight that has been in the making for a long-time and one that Cormier has personally sought out. Indeed, Cormier has done all that he...

Shortly after we saw the blockbuster Vitor Belfort vs. Chris Weidman bout materialize following “The Phenom's” licensing by the Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC), another awaited title fight has unfortunately fallen apart. No. 1-ranked UFC light heavyweight Alexander “The Mauler” Gustafsson has been unfortunately forced out of his UFC 178 title rematch with longtime champion and rival Jon “Bones” Jones. Gustafsson tore his meniscus in training and will be forced to...

The MMA world was turned upside down earlier today (July 23, 2014) when the Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) granted controversial middleweight Vitor “The Phenom” Belfort a license to fight in Las Vegas conditional upon additional drug testing. The blockbuster announcement soon came that Belfort would face Chris Weidman in the main event of December 6’s UFC 181 from the Mandalay Bay Events Center. In a year of disappointing fight cancellations, we are tantalizingly close to seeing...

Just mere moments after No. 2-ranked UFC middleweight Vitor Belfort was granted a license by the Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) after his well-documented rollercoaster of hold-ups concerning the controversial and banned testosterone-replacement therapy (TRT), “The Phenom” has his long-rumored bout with middleweight champion Chris Weidman lined up. Weidman and Belfort will go to war in the pay-per-view (PPV) main event of UFC 181 on December 6, 2014, from the Mandalay Bay Events Center...

Controversial ex-UFC light-heavy and middleweight title challenger Chael Sonnen made a rather ungraceful and abrupt exit from the sport this year; after failing tests for hCG, EPO, HGH, Anastrozole and Clomephine, 'The American Gangster' retired from active fighting, and was fired from his job as Fox analyst. Joining Chael P on the growing list of fighters failing drug tests is Vitor Belfort, who ties in with Wanderlei Silva to make a trio that wreaked havoc on UFC matchmakers earlier in the year. After a...

Former Strikeforce lightweight champion Josh Thomson made a big comeback to the UFC in 2013 with a massive TKO win over Nate Diaz at UFC on Fox 7. The victory confirmed that 'Punk' could hang at the top level, and set him up with a UFC on Fox 10 bout with former champion Ben Henderson. Unfortunately for Thomson, the fight didn't go his way, and he lost a decision to 'Smooth' this past January. Now scheduled to face Bobby Green, in replacement of Michael Johnson at UFC on Fox 12, 'Punk' could well find himself...

Alistair Overeem's 2-2 record in the UFC isn't really a reflection of the hype that the Dutch kickboxer brought with him to the promotion back in 2011. At that time, 'The Reem' was undefeated in four years, and was fresh off knocking out Peter Aerts to win the K-1 World GP. Up until 2007, Overeem had fought mainly overseas as a light-heavyweight. Also quite derogatory to Overeem's reputation was his failed drugs test for the UFC, and the resulting 14-month ansence from the sport had a big impact on his performances....

Matt “The Immortal Brown” has been on a collision course with a welterweight title shot for nearly two-and-a-half-years. Beginning in February of 2012 at UFC 143, the 33-year-old Ohio native has banged off seven consecutive victories, winning all but one by way of T/KO stoppage, and now sits one win away from a chance at 170-pound championship glory.  Currently ranked No. 5 in the division, Brown is set to face No. 2 ranked Robbie Lawler at this coming weekend’s (July 26, 2014) UFC...

On May 24 of this year (2014), TJ Dillashaw shocked the world when he resoundingly defeated bantamweight champion Renan Barao at UFC 173 in Las Vegas, Nevada. Needing less than the full 25 minutes of the match, Dillashaw impressively dominated Barao over all four rounds, finally putting his opponent away in the early part of the fifth stanza with a TKO head kick.   Yet, for as stellar as Dillashaw looked, the win failed to earn him a new challenge. As such, Dillashaw’s first title defense will be...

After Conor McGregor’s one-sided TKO victory over Diego Brandao in the main event of UFC Fight Night 46 from Dublin’s O2 Arena this past Saturday (July 19, 2014), speculation soon shifted as to just whom “Notorious’s” next opponent would be. No. 6-ranked Dustin Poirier was quick to sign on to face the outspoken McGregor, voicing his readiness on Twitter and volunteering his skills for the stacked UFC 178 card on September 27 from Las Vegas. It was a fight that most felt had to...
