UFC light-heavyweight champion Jon Jones was the latest victim of the injury curse as he was pulled from his UFC 178 date with Daniel Cormier, and his next defense will now go down at UFC 182. With the jacked up leg of “Bones”, number one contender Alexander Gustafsson made his voice heard, stating that he wanted the shot in January. This left “DC” in no-man's land should the promotion choose Gus over him, as he would probably have to fight again just to stay active, or sit dormant....

In recent times, it would seem that Bellator MMA has undergone a big change, at least to the untrained eye; with Bjorn Rebney ousted from the picture, Scott Coker stepping up to the plate, and a rumoured signing of former Strikeforce champion and WMMA pioneer Gina Carano. As it turns out, the 'big announcement' scheduled for today wasn't only the news that 'Crush' hadn't signed for the promotion. In fact, the announcement was that Bellator 125 will be headlined by Melvin Manhoef and Doug Marshall in a middleweight...

Posted on August 12, 2014, 04:11 AM by Buster Evans
After beginning his MMA career as a pure grappler, stemming from his elite wrestling background, UFC middleweight champion Chris Weidman has evolved into a dangerous striker which has earned him five wins by KO/TKO. His three most recent stoppages are by far the most impressive of his career though, with a knockout and TKO over Anderson Silva which followed a highlight reel KO over Mark Munoz at UFC on Fuel TV 4. The "All-American's" elite striking was also on display in his most recent bout where he defended...
