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...

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.

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...

UFC lightweight competitor Norman Parke impressed in front of the Irish crowds at Fight Night 46 last night (Sat. July 19, 2014), as he earned the TKO win over formerly streaking Nayouki Kotani.
