UFC Fight Night (UFN) 46: McGregor vs. Brandao is less than 24 hours away and ahead of the (July 19, 2014) Dublin, Ireland, card, UFC President Dana White fielded questions from the media at the event’s pre-fight press scrum.

It’s far from a secret that “Notorious” has called out each and every top featherweight in an effort to get his name thrown into a crowded title picture, and Poirier is no exception. McGregor recently called the Louisianan a “pea head” amongst other things, and today, “Diamond”...

UFC lightweight and one part of the notorious Stockton bad boys Nate Diaz has been inactive since his 2013 TKO over Gray Maynard, in search of better wages and a more juicy contract. The eight month sit since The Ultimate Fighter 18 finale has been filled back-and-forth jives between Diaz and UFC president Dana White, and it seems that things aren't going to get better very quickly. After turning down multiple fights, and slating his former employers, it looks as if Diaz has burned whatever bridges had existed...

UFC middleweight champion Chris Weidman has had an uphill battle in all three title fights of his budding career thus far. First of all, 'The All-American' had to overcome the greatest middleweight in UFC history, as he faced Anderson Silva as a huge underdog at UFC 162. The win was as shocking as it was spectacular, and the rematch was set. Weidman repeated history, and once again put the champion on the end of a nasty defeat, then came his double knee surgery before being booked in against Vitor Belfort....

Atlantic City, New Jersey was treated to a fantastic evening of finish-filled action last night (Wednesday July 16, 2014), as UFC Fight Night 45 provided nine finishes from 11 fights.

The official UFC Fight Night 45 medical suspensions list has been released, and six fighters are subject to indefinite suspensions...

With a fantastic undercard showing, the UFC Fight Night 45 main card is now underway. With Donald Cerrone and Jim Miller at the head of the card, featherweights Lucas Martins and Alex White looked to get the action going. The undefeated White looked a little tame against the Chute Box prospect Martins in round one, and was handily outstruck and hurt at times. The pace slowed for 'Mineiro' a little in round two, but he still kept White on the back foot the whole time. White was able to land a nifty spinning...
