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...

POLL: Who Should Conor McGregor Fight Next?

Posted on July 19, 2014, 09:51 PM by Mike Drahota
Rising UFC featherweight Conor McGregor made a triumphant return from ACL surgery today (Sat., July 19, 2014), defeating Diego Brandao with a first round TKO in the main event of UFC Fight Night 46 from the O2 Arena in Dublin, Ireland. Putting on a dominant performance for his hometown fans, the scintillating win left the door wide open for McGregor, who now sits with a wealth of potentially exciting possibilities in a stacked UFC 145-pound division. A fight with No. 6-ranked Dustin Poirier is already on...

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?

Posted on July 7, 2014, 11:03 AM by Rory Kernaghan
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...

POLL: Who Takes UFC 175's Main And Co-Main Event?

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. Taking a year off to recover from an elbow injury after knocking out Dennis Siver at UFC 162 in July 2013, the Jackson’s MMA product has looked unstoppable since losing his UFC debut to former title challenger Ricardo Lamas. It’s...

Stephens is on a three-fight winning streak coming into the bout and has looked unstoppable since his drop down to featherweight. The 28-year old made his debut in the division at UFC 160 taking a dominant unanimous decision over Estevan Payan. "Lil' Heathen" followed than up with a first round knockout over...

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...

It's hard to ignore that MMA has most of it's brightest stars sidelined due to unforeseen circumstances at present, but it's also noticeable that the UFC is home to most of the names on that list. I'm not writing off the current crop of talent in the world of MMA, as the future stars are still in the making. There has however been a significant change in the past year or so, and events like Fight Night 43 in June highlight my point; that the UFC is a little light in the marquee fighter department. Two fighters,...

POLL: Who Deserves "Finish Of The Night" For UFC 174?

Posted on June 16, 2014, 07:13 AM by Buster Evans
LowKick's "Finish of the Night" poll returns this week for UFC 174 to pick out the best stoppage from Saturday Night's action. Due to an unfortunate incident with a door, I was unable to do a poll for UFN 42 last week but I think it's safe to assume Ben Henderson would have won for his fourth round rear naked choke on Rustam Khabilov. The last "Finish of the Night" poll came the week prior, combining the stoppages from UFC Fight Night 41 and the TUF: Brazil Finale. In first place was former Strikeforce light-heavyweight...

MacDonald and Tyron Woodley went at it on the main card of last night's UFC 174, in a bout that could well have garnered either man a title shot. 'The Chosen One' had spoke about cutting in line for a title shot, but ended up eating his words, and multiple jabs against the much more technical 'Ares'. The young Canadian impressed in Vancouver, but should he get a title shot? UFC on Fox 12 is the scene for the official title contender bout between Robbie Lawler and Matt Brown, but what would happen if that...

This Saturday night (June 14, 2014) from the Rogers Arena in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, top-ranked UFC welterweights Rory MacDonald and Tyron Woodley will go to war in the co-main event of UFC 174. When the bout was booked following Woodley’s UFC 171 win over former interim champ Carlos Condit, it was largely thought that the next contender to Johny Hendricks’ belt would emerge from it. However, unfortunately for MacDonald and Woodley, that honor was bestowed upon the recently scheduled...
