Earlier this month, former light-heavyweight champion Lyoto Machida came up short in his attempt to become the third man in history to win two UFC titles in different weight class when he was shutdown by Chris Weidman in the main event of UFC 175. But it looks like "The Dragon" has put that setback behind him and is ready for a new challenge inside the Octagon. Through his press office, Machida said he hopes to return around October and is looking at Luke Rockhold as a potential opponent: "I had no injuries...

UFC featherweight competitor Cub Swanson has made good use of his time at 145 pounds; winning six straight fights and scoring four brutal knockouts in the process.

Swanson had previously spoke about fighting the winner of Frankie Edgar vs. BJ Penn III, and the fight looked to be becoming reality as Edgar's...

Michael Bisping emerged onto the UFC’s stage in 2006 when he claimed “The Ultimate Fighter” Season 3 light-heavyweight tournament finale win. Now eight years and 20 fights into his senior circuit career, Bisping stands at a crossroads in his MMA journey. At age 35, the British middleweight has slowly been sliding down the 185-pound rankings ladder (currently at No. 8) and has all but disappeared from title contention. With a record of 14 – 6, “The Count” has never been...

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 discuss a number of subjects, including his now scheduled match with former middleweight champion Anderson Silva and his thoughts on fighting for the welterweight...

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',...
