With last night’s blockbuster UFC 175 card in the rearview mirror, focus will now shift (kind of) to tonight’s (July 6, 2014) The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 19 Finale main event trilogy match between former UFC lightweight champions and TUF coaches Frankie Edgar and BJ Penn. Out of action since a one-sided loss to Rory MacDonald in 2012, Penn returns to a new weight class of featherweight in an effort to avenge his two previous losses to “The Answer.” It promises to be a high-paced affair...

UFC middleweight champion Chris Weidman retained his title last night, in a thriller with former light-heavyweight champion Lyoto 'The Dragon' Machida. 'The All-American' showed that he can fight through adversity, and also go five rounds with top flight challengers. The win places Weidman on a lot of radars, and UFC president Dana White immediately linked the champ to his former scheduled opponent Vitor Belfort. 'The Phenom' himself was quick to jump on the title shot train, as he posted the following to...

UFC 175 was both a blessing and something less in a disguise tonight (July 5, 2014), as Chris Weidman defended his middleweight belt in brilliant and unanimous decision fashion against Lyoto Machida.
