Posted on August 27, 2014, 08:24 AM by Rory Kernaghan
UFC welterweights Matt Brown and Carlos Condit were once booked in to fight each other, in a dream match up for fans. That was back in December at UFC on FOX 9, but “The Immortal” suffered a back injury and the fight was scrapped. “NBK” went on to fight Tyron Woodley at UFC 171, losing by injury TKO. “The Chosen One” has his hype train stopped by Rory MacDonald at UFC 174, but got it right back on track with a knockout win against Dong Hyun Kim at Fight Night 48.

Posted on August 26, 2014, 09:33 PM by Mike Drahota
This weekend (Sat., August 30, 2014) UFC bantamweight champion TJ Dillashaw will take on former champ Renan Barao in the main event of UFC 177 from the Sleep Train Arena in Sacramento, California. “The Viper” finished Barao in the fifth round of their first encounter at May’s UFC 173 from Las Vegas in a fight that was anything but close. It will go down as one of the biggest upsets in UFC history, but what transpired proved that Dillashaw was without a doubt the better fighter that night. Regardless...

The MMA world breathed a collective sigh of relief last Tuesday (August 19, 2014) when news broke that Bellator lightweight champion Eddie Alvarez had finally been released from his contract. Alvarez was quickly signed on to face top-ranked lightweight Donald Cerrone in the co-main event of UFC 178, fulfilling the promise of a bout that was rumored a few weeks before. After a long and drawn out contract dispute with former Bellator CEO Bjorn Rebney that kept Alvarez out of action for the majority of 2013,...

Posted on August 26, 2014, 02:36 PM by Buster Evans
Former Strikeforce title challenger Tyron Woodley got himself back to winning ways this weekend with a first round knockout over Dong Hyun Kim in the co-main event of UFC Fight Night 48. Now, just a few days after his spectacular win, Woodley has expressed who he would like to fight next: "A fight against Matt Brown seems most interesting," Woodley told MMAFighting.com.

UFC president Dana White revealed at the UFC Fight Night 48 press conference some rather interesting news. During the prelims card of the Macau, China based card, he had pulled an 'incompetent' judge from the panel, and told him to sit in the crowd. After some sketchy scoring during the first two bouts, Howard Hughes was banished to the stands. The news may have come as music to the ears of fans who are angered by poor judging, but it looks like the UFC isn't on board with White's decision. The promotion...

Posted on August 26, 2014, 11:30 AM by Rory Kernaghan
UFC featherweight contender Chan Sung Jung has suffered yet another setback due to injuries. After taking more than a year out following his brutal TKO loss to Jose Aldo at UFC 163, “The Korean Zombie” was slated to return at UFC Fight Night 53 against Akira Corassani. It would appear that the punishment he received against Aldo last year is still taking it's toll on Jung. Indeed, the feisty featherweight has been pulled from his October booking against Corassani, as MMAFighting.com received confirmation...

Posted on August 26, 2014, 06:30 AM by Buster Evans
The official UFC rankings have been updated following the promotion's double-header this weekend.

Nik Lentz: I Was A Complete Waste Of Talent

Posted on August 25, 2014, 09:53 PM by Mike Henken
Nik Lentz has been competing in the UFC since 2009, boasting a record of 9-3-2 inside of the Octagon. But “The Carny” hasn’t quite been able to reach the top, his most pivotal bout a loss to No. 1-ranked Chad Mendes at UFC on FOX 9 last year (December 14,2013) where he was controlled and dominated by Mendes’ wrestling over three rounds. Lentz has recently made the move to Florida’s American Top Team and dropped from lightweight to featherweight. Lentz actually said he should...

Ed Soares Believes Anderson Silva Can Still Be UFC Champion

Posted on August 25, 2014, 07:26 PM by Mike Drahota
Longtime former UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva has been out of action since he broke his leg in the second round of his UFC 168 rematch against Chris Weidman late last year (December 28, 2013). “The Spider” underwent immediate surgery for the gruesome injury, and he chronicled each excruciating step to his recovery, which apparently went very well. Despite his rehabilitation success, however, Silva decided that it was best to take the entirety of 2014 off to spend time with his family,...

Joe Riggs Looking For December Return After Gun Accident

Posted on August 25, 2014, 04:10 PM by Buster Evans
Newly re-signed UFC welterweight Joe Riggs has suffered his fair share of setbacks in his MMA career but his most recent was quite possibly the worst yet after he accidentally shot himself in his hand and foot. At the time, Riggs was in the process of preparing for his return to the Octagon as he was booked to face off against Paulo Thiago next month at UFC Fight Night 51 in Brazilia, Brazil. But, his return was put on halt when "Diesel" shot himself while trying to remove a live round in his pistol. Doctors...

UFC lightweight Bobby Green has put together a very impressive three-year unbeaten streak, most recently defeating Josh Thomson by split decision at UFC on FOX 12. Soon after the win over “The Punk”, Green was booked in to face fellow surging 155er Donald Cerrone at UFC 178. Unfortunately for “King”, he was soon bumped from the card. Bellator lightweight champion Eddie Alvarez forced Green from his booking against “Cowboy”, after originally being slated to face Jorge Masvidal,...

Speaking to Bloody Elbow recently, 'Jacare' said he has his eyes set on the middleweight title but right now his focus is aimed on Mousasi: "I'm sincerely not thinking about secondary things.
