ufcLowKickMMA has been bringing you UFC news since 2006.

The UFC (Ultimate Fighting Championship) is the world’s largest MMA promotion and LowKickMMA provides daily UFC news and exclusives.  Beginning in 1993 the UFC introduced organized and sanctioned MMA to the United States. The promotion set out with the goal of finding the ultimate fighting champion pitting all disciplines of martial arts against each other in a tournament-style with a champion crowned on the night.

Since then the UFC and its ruleset have evolved to what you see today. A rankings system where fighters compete climbing the rankings to attain a championship belt. With health and safety for their athletes being a number one priority, The UFC in 2015 partnered with the United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) to independently monitor testing of its athletes.

Producing the largest stars in the MMA space such as Conor McGregor, Ronda Rousey, Nate Diaz and Jon Jones, The UFC continues to cement itself as the premier organization in the sport and as the largest Pay-Per-View event provider in the world.

Here at LowKick MMA we provide you with all the latest updates from the worlds leading mixed martial arts organization.

Georges St. Pierre remains open to fighting Nick Diaz

The one thing that UFC Welterweight Champion Georges St. Pierre seemed to want more than anything else on Saturday night was to see Nick Diaz stand in the center of the Octagon with his hand raised in victory. In the days leading up to the event, St. Pierre made it clear that he wanted to face Diaz in his next bout, however that opportunity was denied him by a Carlos Condit victory. There were many fans that also wanted to see St. Pierre meet Diaz and while that fight may not happen as soon as St. Pierre

Post UFC 143: Four different routes for Nick Diaz

Nick Diaz lost a hotly contested decision Saturday night to Carlos Condit. This no doubt has thrown the dynamo for a loop considering he would have had a date with GSP lined up had he taken the win (and the interim title). In fact, he seemed so disgusted with fighting after the way he lost the match that he subsequently retired from MMA. Knowing his history of brash decisions we are only left to hope that he goes back on that plan, and keeps scrapping. If Cesar Gracie is able to talk his brooding brawler

Surgical Precision: The brilliance of Carlos Condit’s performance at UFC 143

Yesterday, UFC 143 brought us a new Interim Welterweight titleholder with Carlos Condit's decision victory over the favored Nick Diaz. While many view this victory as controversial and perhaps even unwarranted, there are several reasons to view Condit's performance as nothing short of masterful, and at the end of the day, he walked away with the belt on Saturday. Let's take a look at why Condit's victory was a great performance in the Octagon on Saturday. First of all, Condit landed more overall

UFC 143 Recap: Carlos Condit becomes the Interim UFC Welterweight Champion

Leading up to UFC 143 many thought that Nick Diaz and Carlos Condit would be a striking battle with two of the most accomplished strikers in the Welterweight division just throwing down and going for it. Things didn’t exactly go that way, instead Carlos Condit used a perfect game plan to counter Nick Diaz’s style and take home the interim UFC Welterweight title after the five round battle. Questions after seeing Nick Diaz vs. Carlos Condit: -Did the UFC just see a lot of pay per view buys

Pat Barry vs Lavar Johnson booked for UFC on FOX 3

Heading into his bout against Christian Morecraft on January 20, Pat Barry had put together a UFC record of 3-4, never putting together two wins in a row. Barry never failed to deliver an exciting fight, even when he lost two in a row to Cheick Kongo and Stefan Struve. The fight against Morecraft looked like it would end with a third straight loss when Barry was caught in an armbar, but he slipped free, showing some solid submission defense and when the fight went back to standing he caught Morecraft with
