Check out the bout order for the TUF 19 Finale on Sunday, which is headlined by a 3rd meeting between Frankie Edgar and B.J. Penn.
It is not my place to talk about the quality of TUF 19, because the only episode I watched was Cathal Pendred versus Eddie Gordon, and I don't need to see it again. However, everyone else from Joe Beerbelly to Dana White has derided the quality of this season's cast, and the end result is that only a handful of fighters (including Pendred for the Ireland show) are ge more
Bellator will kick-off its eleventh season on Friday with a 14-fight event from Connecticut’s Mohegan Sun headlined by Featherweight Champion Pat Curran against Patricio Pitbull. 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.

Whenever Cub Swanson fights, there's a chance for an explosive finish. He won't have to hunt down his opponent on Saturday night, as Jeremy "Lil Heathen" Stephens is never one to back down from a brawl.
Swanson has made it clear: He believes he deserves a shot at the title. He has already faced and been knocked out by current champion Jose Aldo, but that was in 2009 when both were in WEC. He wants his crack at the title soon, but Stephens stands in his way.
'Lil Heathen has been up and down over more
The UFC, in its ever-increasing attempts at expanding its brand around the globe, is running a lot of shows.
This is an unarguable point. Whether or not you believe it is running too many events comes down to your own personal preference. Some of you can't get enough mixed martial arts, and you'll gladly watch two events in one day (like the UFC has planned for this Saturday). For some of you, two events in a single day—and four events in the span of eight days—is simply too much of a good thing more

The UFC always ups its game for Independence Day weekend. This year is no exception.
Despite what seems these days to be the inevitable angel's share—injuries, drug test failures and the dilution of talent because of a new abundance of events—exacting its cut off the top, UFC 175 still looks and feels like a glamorous card.
The whole thing goes down Saturday from that little MMA oasis in the desert, Las Vegas. Anchoring the event are two title fights: Chris Weidman defends his middleweight strap more
