UFC welterweight champion Johny Hendricks joined the list of the injured UFC elite when he had to undergo bicep surgery after winning the title against Robbie Lawler at UFC 171. 'Bigg Rigg' tore his right bicep before winning the vacant title against 'Ruthless' this past March, which made his win all the more impressive. The thoughts of Hendricks'...

UFC Fight Night 45 went down this past Wednesday (July 16, 2014) and provided fans at the Revel Casino Hotel in Atlantic City, New Jersey, a fantastic evening of action-filled burners and finishes. With only two fights going to a decision, and all of the Fox Sports 1 main card bouts ending by knockout or submission, it's easy to see why Fight Night 45 was one of the best free events of the year. The main card was filled with five knockouts and one submission, and the most notable finishes of the evening must...

This past weekend (July 19, 2014), the UFC took its show on the road to Dublin, Ireland, for an epic night of Fight Pass streamed bouts. Truly, the UFC Fight Night (UFN) 46: McGregor vs. Brandao was a great event and one that saw the hometown Irish fighters go 4 – 0 on the evening, while the card as a whole delivered seven finishes out of ten matches. To say the least, the show was worth the monthly $10 Fight Pass subscription. With the event now recorded, the UFC has adjusted their division rankings...

Posted on July 21, 2014, 06:17 PM by Brian Cox
As was announced by the promotion today (July 21, 2014), Bellator MMA has resigned Paul “Semtex” Daley. The 31-year-old British fighter originally contracted with BMMA in July of 2012; however, the promotion released him a year later due to his legal difficulties stemming from an assault charge in England. However, with the issue now settled – Daley pled guilty to the charges in exchange for no jail time – Bellator’s new CEO, Scott Coker, has decided to give “Semtex”...

UFC lightweight champion Anthony Pettis has been sidelined since his epic title win back at UFC 164 in Milwaukee last year; 'Showtime' snatched the belt from old foe Benson Henderson with a fantastic first round armbar, but that was way back in August and now he awaits a comeback title defense against Gilbert Melendez. That fight was originally scheduled for UFC 182 on January 3, 2015, but Pettis appeared on today's The MMA Hour to proclaim that he will now be fighting Melendez before the end of the year: "That's...

UFC Fight Night 46 went down in Dublin, Ireland this past Saturday (July 19, 2014) and delivered in a big way all round. The home town favorites were all party to huge wins, the crowd was absolutely electrifying, and the event was a smash hit for numbers. The live gate was huge, and Dana White said that the event was the biggest Fight Pass show to date. With PPV-style numbers in attendance, it seems that Fight Night 46 was the best event Ireland has ever seen. In fact, it broke yet another record; the show...

Following Irish star Conor McGregor’s first round stoppage of Diego Brandao at last Saturday’s (July 19, 2014) UFC Fight Night 46 from the O2 Arena in Dublin, Ireland, No. 6-ranked Dustin Poirier immediately volunteered his services for a fight with “Notorious” at September 27’s UFC 178. “The Diamond” stopped by today’s The MMA Hour to discuss McGregor’s win, noting that it wasn’t that impressive because Brandao simply gave up, just like he did against...

UFC light-heavyweight Anthony Johnson made his way back to the big show after a six fight win streak between 201-14, and his return bout was an impressive decision victory over Phil Davis. Now eyeing his UFC on Fox 12 opponent Antonio Rogerio Nogueira, a win for 'Rumble' would do wonders for his title aspirations. Never one to let his hands do all the talking, the former welterweight and current 205-pounder Johnson takes to Facebook to send a message to 'Lil Nog' and his camp: Post by Anthony Johnson. Johnson's...

No. 11-ranked UFC featherweight Dennis Bermudez lost his UFC debut to Diego Brandao at The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 14 Finale, but that stinging defeat must have left an incredibly bad taste in his mouth. Since then, the surging “Menace” has reeled off six consecutive victories inside the Octagon, his most recent being a third round TKO over Jimmy Hettes at UFC 171 on March 15. But Bermudez isn’t exactly making waves despite his impressive streak. That could all change if he gets by No. 8-ranked...

After breaking his hand early on in his razor thin decision loss to No. 1-ranked Benson Henderson in the main event of January’s UFC on FOX 10, No. 3-ranked lightweight Josh Thomson will look to rebound against talented late replacement Bobby “King” Green on the main card of this Saturday’s (Jul 26, 2014) UFC on FOX 12 from the SAP Center in San Jose, California. “Punk” was originally scheduled to face surging No. 10-ranked Michael Johnson, but from the sound of his recent...

This past weekend (July 19, 2014) in Dublin, Ireland, No. 3 ranked flyweight Ian McCall put on an impressive performance, as he dominated the No. 9 ranked Brad Pickett to earn a unanimous decision victory at UFC Fight Night (UFN) 46 in the “Emerald Isle.” Post-fight, “Uncle Creepy” spoke of being “happier” regarding his UFN 46 effort – by McCall’s account it was better than his previous one at UFC 163 – however, it wasn’t “exciting enough.”...

With the dust settled on an absolutely insane week of that feature two earth-shaking cards in UFC Fight Night 45 & 46, the promotion’s summer push continues to heat up with UFC on FOX 12 from the SAP Center in San Jose, California. The card is set up to be one of the best of the year on paper.
