Former WEC Light heavyweight champion and UFC middleweight contender Brian Stann has made it clear where he stands on the Chael Sonnen situation. The criticism levelled at Chael Sonnen in the wake of his second failed drug test of 2014 just keeps on going.
As if being forced into retirement, fired from his roles as an analyst for FOX and suffering widespread criticism from media and fans alike, one of Sonnen's co-analysts Brian Stann tweeted the below today: Adversity reveals true character, if more
A third fight between Frankie Edgar and BJ Penn never made much sense.
Less and less so every second they actually spent together in the cage.
Edgar was declared the winner on Sunday after three miserable rounds of lopsided action, but even he didn’t feel much like celebrating. He’d battered and humiliated the fan-favorite Penn en route to a TKO in the main event of the TUF 19 live finale, and he understood it brought a melancholy end to a weekend of UFC events on back-to-back nights. “It’s a bi more
After BJ Penn's final fight was over, after BJ made his retirement official, his brother, Jay Dee Penn, spoke with MMAWeekly.com about his brother's Hall of Fame career and his future. more
Even from the dark booth at El Compadre on Sunset Boulevard you can see Mark Miller’s right eye is bloodshot. The day before, he was wearing a patch over that eye, and he tweeted out that image with his hands curled into a hook, playfully, like a pirate. The day before that he had surgery on that eye, to fix burst blood vessels that blinded him. This was brought on by high blood pressure, which goes back to his acute renal failure, which became chronic, irreversible renal failure after a series more
The first UFC heavyweight title fight took place all the way back in 1997 between Mark Coleman and Dan Severn. Since that time, the belt has changed hands more than any other division in the UFC.
The heavyweight title is the only UFC title of the original five weight classes that has not been defended more than twice consecutively. There has never been a wildly dominant champion, and that has allowed anyone to have a serious chance to win the belt.
Every champion's reign has to end at some point more
Women continue to make their mark in the Ultimate Fighting Championship with the debut of the strawweight division at UFC Fight Night 45 in Atlantic City on Wednesday. more
On the quietest night of the sports calendar, the UFC made some noise.
In the middle of baseball's All-Star break and with NFL training camps still several days away, it was the deadest of dead spots for sports fans. Unless, of course, you were an MMA fan, in which case the main event at Wednesday's UFC Fight Night 45 promised on paper to be one of the wildest scraps of the year.
That one featured extraordinary lightweight brawlers Donald Cerrone and Jim Miller, both of whom are mounting solid s more
At UFC Fight Night 45, Claudia Gadelha and Tina Lahdemaki became the first two 115-pound fighters to step inside the Octagon. Unfortunately for fight fans the bout was buried on UFC Fight Pass. That was a mistake made by the UFC and is something it should avoid moving forward.
UFC Fight Night 45 was a fun event, and only two bouts went to a decision—the women's strawweight contest was one of those bouts. That should not detract from why it should have been placed on the televised prelims at the more
Following his head-kick knockout over Jim Miller last night, former WEC title challenger Donald Cerrone only has so many matchups that make sense for him at the top of the UFC's lightweight division. Luckily, he called out top contender Khabib Nurmagomedov prior to the bout with Miller, per MMA Fight Corner, and the undefeated Russian superstar likes the idea.
