There's a double header of UFC content again this week, although this one is spaced far more apart than the previous attempt. We'll have a show from New Zealand in the very early morning here stateside followed by a Fox Sports 1 show headlined by a featherweight clash between Cub Swanson and Jeremy Stephens. There are a few other decent fights sprinkled in between the two cards.
Glory 17 and Last Man Standing (technically speaking, two different shows) are in the books. Artem Levin looks to simp more
It's not too difficult to figure out what we'll be discussing this time, is it?
On the good side of things, the UFC is staging UFC 175 this weekend, which includes not one, but two title fights. That means it includes top flight fighters, so you know I'm happy. UFC middleweight champion Chris Weidman will look to get past former UFC light heavyweight champion Lyoto Machida while UFC women's bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey faces her next challenge in Alexis Davis.

It's hard to know where to start and where to end with topics for this week's chat.
There's the scintillating win by Chris Weidman over Lyoto Machida, B.J. Penn's horrible final fight, what's next for Frankie Edgar, what's next for Ronda Rousey, winners and losers from both events, poor or at least suspect judging, Stefan Struve's future and everything else you could possibly imagine.
Oh, and UFC 176 was cancelled, too.
There's a lot going on, so join me today to discuss all of this and more. In more
There isn't merely one, but two UFC events this week. First up on the docket is tonight's UFC Fight Night 45, an event held in Atlantic City, New Jersey that is headlined by a lightweight clash between two absolute go-getters in Donald Cerrone and Jim Miller.
On Saturday, the UFC moves to Dublin, Ireland for the return of featherweight phenom Conor McGregor. Can he get past Diego Brandao? Is he really the future of the division? On one level or another, we're going to get some answers.

After yesterday's Nevada Athletic Commission (NAC) hearing involving Vitor Belfort and Chael Sonnen, what isn't there to say? Did the punishments fit the crime? What message did the NAC really send, if any, at all? Were you surprised the UFC announced Belfort vs. Chris Weidman for UFC 181 minutes after the conclusion of Belfort's portion of the hearing?
We'll break down all angles of whatever the hell that was yesterday.
Of course, there was also monumental news announced this week unrelated to more
We’ll never know for sure to what extend Jose Aldo’s cage-grab played in their first fight, but Chad Mendes is determined not to let it become a factor in their upcoming second fight at UFC 176.Filed under: Featured, Featured Videos, News, UFC, Videos more
There are far bigger, more relevant fighters to main event a mixed martial arts card than James Te Huna and Nate "The Great" Marquardt. However, when it comes to sheer desperation, Te Huna and Marquardt should have plenty.
Both men are on a losing streak and can ill-afford another loss. That dynamic could make the feature bout of UFC Fight Night 43 in New Zealand a smashing affair. This card will be exclusively broadcast Saturday, June 28, on UFC Fight Pass. Click here for details.
