When a fighter loses a title fight, he usually has to go back to the drawing board, see what went wrong and figure out how to come back stronger.
Some are able to do that very well and get back in title contention quickly. Others, like Frank Mir, don't do so well after a title loss.
With more divisions and fighters now than ever before, there are far more title fights and far more title contenders. Some contenders are ready for a second or maybe even a third shot at the belt. Let's see who they more
Today's mixed martial arts takes a certain kind of individual to stand out and succeed.
No longer does one elite discipline supersede the rest. No longer does one attribute dictate perennial greatness.
Instead, fighters need to be equipped from head to toe. This includes their ability to work the mic.
While nobody in the near future is going to match the overall precision on the mic that the likes of Chael Sonnen did, that doesn't mean they can't make progress.
Here are five fighters who can wal more
Because as the nutrition expert put it, fighters like Kelvin Gastelum are paying 20 percent to someone just to answer a phone call from Joe Silva, instead of paying the proper coaching staff which actually helps them prepare to win a fight. Kelvin Gastelum failed to make weight in his third trip to welterweight this past weekend (Sat., June 28, 2014) prior to his fight against Nicholas Musoke at UFC Fight Night 44 in San Antonio, Texas.

Leading up to his UFC Fight Night 44 bout with Niko Musoke, TUF 17 winner Kelvin Gastelum called nutritionist Mike Dolce's program "expensive."

"Dana White was going to give him a $50,000 bonus for performance of the night," Dolce said on Monday's edition of The MMA Hour. "But because he missed wei more
Former UFC champion, Georges St. Pierre publicly supports Canadian drug kingpin Jimmy Cournoyer with letter of support.
Georges St. Pierre may be retired, but he's still making the media rounds pretty regularly and in ways that might not always be so positive. In today's GSP news, he is publicly backing "King of Pot" Jimmy Cournoyer, who happens to be awaiting sentencing here in the good ole US of A. Cournoyer pled guilty to trafficking in huge amounts of marijuana.

From its earliest days, determining the best MMA fighter in the world has never been a particularly easy task. Even as Royce Gracie dominated the initial UFC tournaments in 1993 and 1994, challengers to his throne emerged overseas, his own brother Rickson at the front of the pack.
As the years have gone by and the sport has become more diverse—in size, technique and geography—winnowing a pool of hundreds down to one has become more and more difficult. How do you compare lightning-quick submissio more
