Heavyweight Matt Mitrione entered the UFC in December of 2009 and quickly rattled off five straight wins, with four of the victories coming by way of  T/KO. However, “Meathead” was unable to sustain the momentum over his next five fights, as he went 2 – 3 through the run and began to demonstrate himself as a hit-and-miss fighter, and one that didn’t always seem to put forth his best efforts. On Saturday night (July 5, 2014) in Las Vegas, Nevada, Mitrione will once again step into...

BJ Penn is one of the greatest fighters to ever grace the UFC’s Octagon. Indeed, Penn is one of the greatest MMA fighters of all time. Gifted at a very young age, “The Prodigy” was a terror on the mat, a problem on the feet, and had the chin and skin to make him virtually impervious to his opponent’s offense. In short, Penn was the Terminator of his day.   In his thirteen year fight career – beginning in May of 2001 at UFC 31 – Penn has amassed a total of 22 fights...

UFC women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey will go for her third UFC title defense in only seven months, a stark departure from the current time where few UFC champion and top-level draws are actively fighting. Rousey beat her archrival Miesha Tate at UFC 168 last December, followed it up with the quickest title defense in UFC history by starching Sara McMann with her first-ever knockout at UFC 170, and now she’ll take on No. 2-ranked challenger Alexis Davis in the co-main event of UFC 175...

UFC 175 Open Workouts Highlight Video

Posted on July 3, 2014, 04:55 AM by Rory Kernaghan
With UFC 175 just days away now, the anticipation builds for the Las Vegas, Nevada based event. Two title fights on one card, Ronda Rousey vs. Alexis Davis & Weidman/Machida, the return of Stefan Struve and Urijah Faber all have me holding high hopes for the mid-year card. The biggest draw for me is the Weidman vs. Machida showdown. I've been thinking and discussing this fight a lot, ever since it was booked, and I feel like there could be a very unexpected outcome. It's always good to see 'The California...
