Tonight, in the main event of WSOF 9, the promotion's welterweight champion Steve Carl will attempt to defend his title against submission wizard Rousimar Palbares. Carl will be hoping to get his first title defence over the UFC vet after capturing the WSOF title back in October with a fourth round submission over Josh Burkman. If the 29-year old manages to take the win tonight it will be his eighth straight win since losing to Douglas Lima in 2011. "Toquinho" will be looking for gold in his first fight for...

Anderson Silva has already achieved more than most fighters could ever dream of; he was the most dominant champion in UFC history, owning the middleweight division with an iron fist. How times have changed, as ‘The Spider’ has lost twice in one year and suffered a brutal leg injury during the last fight at UFC 168. With 2014 now out of the question, what should Silva do next? Obviously it is Silva’s decision, but I’m interested to hear what you think. With the current crop of talent...

Mauricio Rua and Dan Henderson are set to battle it out this weekend in the main event of UFC Fight Night 38. The fight is a rematch from their epic clash back at UFC 139 which earned both men "Fight of the Year" honours. "Hendo" took a close decision in the first fight but the majority of fans thought it was closer to a draw, possibly even a win for Rua. Nevertheless, "Shogun" will get the chance to take his revenge this Sunday when the two meet inside the Ginasio Nelio Dias Arena in Natal, Rio Grande do...

The UFC’s marquee division is stacked to the brim with potential title contenders and big names, but with that boost in talent comes a very messy title picture. UFC 171 saw Tyron Woodley, Hector Lombard and Johny Hendricks increase their stock in a big way, and guys like Rory MacDonald, Carlos Condit, Jake Ellenberger and Robbie Lawler remain in the mix. The UFC is yet to officially announce the next fighter to receive the shot at glory, and Johny Hendricks’ recent injury woes do not help the situation....

POLL: Who Deserved "Finish of the Night" From UFC 171?

Posted on March 16, 2014, 01:40 PM by Buster Evans
Photo: Jayne Kamin-Oncea for USA TODAY Sports The UFC put on another thrilling event this weekend in Dallas, Texas which featured some top quality finishes. UFC 171 took place in the American Airlines Center and featured a welterweight title fight in the main event as Johny Hendricks squared off against Robbie Lawler in what proved to be an all out war. Last weeks "Finish of the Night" winner was Alexander Gustafsson who won with ease after getting 61% of the votes for his second round knockout over Jimi...

Top-to-bottom, UFC Fight Night 37 was a great card which delivered some fantastic fights. In total their were five finishes on the card out of nine fights, three submissions and two knockouts. Seen as the UFC stole LowKick's "Performance of the Night" bonus idea to get rid of "Submission of the Night" and "Knockout of the Night", we have decided to do another poll to determine "Finish of the Night". Louis Gaudinot picked up the first finish on the card, submitting Phill Harris with a guillotine choke 73-seconds...

Jimi Manuwa faces the toughest test of his career on Saturday night when he goes up against the top contender in the light-heavyweight division, former title contender Alexander Gustafsson. Oddsmakers have the undefeated Brit as much as a +350 underdog coming into the fight, which may seem steep for someone who has a record like Manuwa's. But then again, he is going up against the man who gave the pound-for-pound kingpin, Jon Jones, the toughest fight of his career in his last bout. The no.11 ranked Manuwa...

With the recent media storm surrounding the controversial topic of TRT, and it’s banishment from MMA, it seems that Lyoto Machida and Chris Weidman’s newly scheduled title fight has been a little overlooked. The pairing is a direct result of the UFC/NSAC ruling on testosterone replacement therapy, but a very exciting one nonetheless. Vitor Belfort was originally scheduled to face Weidman at 173, but a 90-day TRT purge period would make it impossible for ‘The Phenom’ to make that bout...

Last night at UFC Fight Night 36, Lyoto Machida and Ronaldo Souza pulled off big wins to move one step closer to a UFC title shot. But who really did enough to clinch the next shot at the middleweight champion? In the co-main event "Jacare" managed to out-grapple and outwork Francis Carmont to take home a unanimous decision win. The former Strikeforce champion is now 3-0 in the UFC since debuting for the promotion in May last year. Machida put on a clinic in the main event, outstriking Gegard Mousasi with...

POLL: Who Will Be UFC Welterweight Champion At The End Of 2014?

Despite being packed with a long list of top-level MMA talent, the UFC welterweight division was ruled for nearly six years by longtime champion Georges St. Pierre. That reign came to an end after “GSP” won a highly controversial split decision over No. 1 contender Johny Hendricks at last November’s UFC 167 and promptly stated that he needed to take some time off from the sport for personal reasons. He vacated the belt and incited a media outburst over just what those issues are. It’s...

Jose Aldo’s victory at UFC 169 seems to have resurrected the talk of a super fight between ‘Scarface’ and 155lb. boss Anthony ‘Showtime’ Pettis. The two had originally been paired before Pettis was the champ at UFC 163. Injury would eventually force the former WEC LW title holder from competing for Aldo’s FW strap. Much has been said in the time since about who would win; Aldo with his crisp striking and timing, or Pettis with his adverse striking and ‘wild card’...

Performance is often overlooked on UFC cards for finishes and exciting fights, but I think that needs to change. The "Performance of the Night" poll is designed to show who fans think was the star performer after every UFC event. Last weeks UFC on Fox 10 "Performance of the Night" winner was Donald Cerrone. "Cowboy" topped the poll with 42% for his first round knockout of Adriano Martins. Second in the vote was Alex "Bruce Leeroy" Caceres. Caceres took 24% of the poll for his third round submission over previously...
