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. "Fans want it. He has a ton of heart and is tough as nails." Brown, who most recently fought in July losing a unanimous decision to Robbie...

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...

'Korean Zombie' Injured, Out Of UFC Fight Night 53

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. Rafael Dos Anjos was the big mover in the rankings after he handed former UFC lightweight champion Benson Henderson the first knockout loss of his professional career at Fight Night 49 in Tulsa, Oklahoma. The monumental win on Saturday at the BOK Center shot the Brazilian two places up the 155 pound ladder into the No.3 position.

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,...

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,...

The war of words between UFC middleweights Michael Bisping and Luke Rockhold continued in the wake of UFC Fight Night 48, as “Trhe Count” called out “Rocky” once again.

With the stage seemingly set for the two rivals to finally meet, Rockhold appeared on today's edition of The MMA Hour to discuss the recent bet he proposed to “The Count”. Rockhold...

Former Strikeforce middleweight champion Ronaldo Souza is set to make his return to the Octagon in a few weeks time, following a seven-month lay off with an elbow injury, when he meets Gegard Mousasi in the main event of UFC Fight Night 50. 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. I need to beat Mousasi, that is my main goal right now. I'm not thinking about...

UFC women's bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey remains at the top of the division, and it will likely stay that way until at least 2015. “Rowdy” has defended her belt three times since December 2013, finishing Miesha Tate, Sarah Kaufman and Alexis Davis in quick succession. It appears that a break is on the cards for the dangerous women's boss. This hasn't stopped the talk of who she will face next though, and one name has popped up in conversation quite a bit lately. I'm talking about former...

It’s far from a secret that UFC president Dana White and embattled former lightweight title challenger Nate Diaz aren’t exactly on the same page regarding the polarizing bad boy’s contract negotiations to return to the Octagon. The UFC has been at odds with Diaz and his management for quite some time now, resulting in his removal from the rankings list due to inactivity. In truth, the whole saga has become a bit overblown, prompting Diaz’ manager Mike Kogan to compare it to daytime...
