On SuperBowl weekend two MMA legends are set to step into the Octagon to face off in what is expected to be one of the biggest fights in UFC history. Anderson "The Spider" Silva and MMA's bad boy Nick Diaz will both be making their returns to the Octagon after lengthy layoffs but the fight is still mouth-watering for most fans. Silva makes his comeback after suffering one of the most gruesome injuries we've ever seen in his rematch with Chris Weidman at UFC 168. When the former pound-for-pound king makes...

POLL: Who Will Win The Next UFC Welterweight Title Fight?

Posted on July 27, 2014, 03:25 PM by Mike Drahota
When UFC on FOX 12 was said and done from the SAP Center in San Jose, California, last night, No. 1-ranked welterweight Robbie Lawler had earned a hard-fought unanimous decision over Matt Brown in a “Fight of the Night”-winning main event war. With the pivotal victory, “Ruthless” moves on to an awaited rematch with injured 170-pound champion Johny “Bigg Rigg” Hendricks sometime later this year of early in 2015. The two threw down in a five round war at March 15’s...

Robbie Lawler and Matt Brown will throw down for the marbles of a shot at the UFC welterweight tile, as they get ready to square off at UFC on FOX 12 this evening (Sat. July 26, 2014). In what will almost surely be fight of the night, 'Ruthless' and 'The Immortal' present quite the tricky bout to pick. Both guys love finishing fights, have pure aggression on show, and are on fire in their current form. Lawler possibly has the sight advantage in power, but Brown makes up for that with a little more reach and...

Featherweights Dennis Bermudez and Clay Guida will throw down tomorrow (Sat. July 26, 2014), on the main card of UFC on FOX 12 in the SAP Center, San Jose, California. In what could well prove to be fight of the night, 'The Carpenter' will look to improve his win streak to two after beating Tatsuya Kawajiri in Abu Dhabi this past April. 'The Menace' is undefeated since his TUF 14 finale loss against Diego Brandao back in 2011, and has put together a rather impressive five-fight promotional streak in the time...

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...

Irish fan favorite Conor McGregor returns to action tonight (Sat. July 19, 2014), as he faces off against dangerous TUF 14 winner Diego Brandao at UFC Fight Night 46. In a bout that is fairly evenly matched (at least on paper), we can expe ct fireworks from the go as these angry featherweights enter the cage in the O2 Arena, Dublin, Ireland. 'The Notorious' enjoys a three inch reach advantage, and arguably the better striking skill set, but 'DB' closes the gap with his rushing style and heavy hooks. McGregor's...

Donald Cerrone and Jim Miller are set to do battle in the main event of tonight's (Wednesday July 16, 2014) UFC Fight Night 45. In quite a tough match of evenly talented and well rounded veterans, it really is an intriguing meeting between 'Cowboy' and Miller. Will it be the aggressive clinch work and takedowns of Miller, or Cerrone's precise striking and submissions from the back that win the day? We've seen both men climb to great heights in the past, and often stumble at the penultimate hurdle. Tonight...

POLL: Who Should Frankie Edgar Fight Next?

Frankie Edgar extended his win streak to two with his third round TKO against BJ Penn at The Ultimate Fighter 19 finale last night, in what was undoubtedly one of his more impressive showings. 'The Prodigy' simply couldn't keep up with the faster, younger Edgar, and was sent in to retirement by 'The Answer'. Edgar's drop to featherweight was met with a decision loss to the champion Jose Aldo, but now with wins over Penn and Charles Oliveira, 'The Answer' has some bargaining chips again. So what's next for...

We are just hours away from tonights stacked UFC card which features two highly-anticipated world title fights as Ronda Rousey squares off with Alexis Davis just before Chris Weidman meets Lyoto Machida for the middleweight championship. "Rowdy" could possibly be facing the toughest test of her UFC career in Davis who has won her last five fights. She will need to be on top form tonight to get past the champion, however, who has looked unstoppable in her career so far. The "All-American" will be out to prove...

After dismantling tough No. 11-ranked Jeremy Stephens in the main event of last night’s (Sat., June 28, 2014) UFC Fight Night 44 from the AT & T Center in San Antonio, Texas, No. 4-ranked featherweight Cub Swanson has an impressive six-fight win streak intact.

POLL: Which Fight Should Anderson Silva Return To?

Posted on June 21, 2014, 10:34 AM by Rory Kernaghan
Former UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva may well return in 2014, as we learn that he is back to MMA sparring again. At worst, an early 2015 return is what 'The Spider' will have to settle for, and the precise location of his former title is anyone's guess at that point. With Chris Weidman set to defend the belt he snatched from Silva at 162, against Lyoto Machida at UFC 175, perhaps Silva would be content simply avenging his two UFC losses if 'The Dragon' is the boss? There has also been a lot of...
