Just three short years ago, Anthony "Rumble" Johnson was dismissed as a head case. He seemed likely to go down as a fighter who boasted all the physical tools, but one who was never going to quite get it together. It was right around this time in 2012 when Johnson lashed out at fans on Facebook after badly missing weight for a UFC bout against Vitor Belfort, which was far from his first weight-cutting mishap, then was cut from the roster following a submission loss. "Rumble" hasn't lost a fight read news >>

LAS VEGAS - After defeating former Olympic wrestler Daniel Cormier at his own game Saturday night for perhaps his greatest victory in a career full of highlights, UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones was asked whether he now considers himself the greatest mixed martial artist of all-time. "My plan is to become the greatest fighter of all-time," Jones said at the UFC 182 post-fight press conference at the MGM Grand. "It's so feasible. It's so attainable. All I've got to do is stay focused. I' read news >>

Maybe it was the sound of Joe Rogan's frank talk with Brendan Schaub about brain trauma echoing in the background. Maybe it's because we've already seen Junior dos Santos endure brutal battles well into the championship rounds. Maybe it has something to do with the fact that even in beating Stipe Miocic in what was an undeniably compelling slugfest Saturday night, all the former UFC heavyweight champion really did was stand his ground as the No. 2 guy in the division (Yes, technically, Fabricio read news >>

LAS VEGAS - Stories don't usually play out this way in MMA. This is a fast-moving, brutal buzzsaw of a sport. There's little time for nostalgia and even less for sentiment. For every tale of Randy Couture coming out of retirement, slaying the giant, and winning the heavyweight title, there seem to be a hundred Gray Maynards, guys who were steps away from the mountaintop who found themselves tossed on the scrap heap before they knew what hit them. And that's what makes "Ruthless" Robbie Lawler's read news >>

The critics said Jose Aldo Jr. had a weak gas tank (This, despite finishing in the fourth round against Chan Sung Jung, winning the fourth against Ricardo Lamas, the fifth on two of three cards against Frankie Edgar, and so on). They said the UFC featherweight champion's killer instinct was missing (Despite a highlight reel to rival anyone in the history of the sport as evidence to the contrary). They said the only 145-pound kingpin the UFC has ever known wasn't nearly as big a star as he could read news >>

In the aftermath of Rory MacDonald’s third-round TKO of Tarec Saffiedine on Saturday, a common phrase flying around online was that it’ll now be "hard to deny" MacDonald a welterweight title shot. And for sheer factual accuracy, it’s tough to top that choice of words. MacDonald looked phenomenal in dispatching Saffiedine after just over 11 minutes of action at UFC Fight Night 54. He controlled the mostly stand-up fight with his piercing jab and sharp punching combinations. Saffiedine’s best offe read news >>

LAS VEGAS - If Conor McGregor wasn't winning his fights, no one would care about the color of his suit. If he turned out to be a flash in the pan, McGregor wouldn't have hosted an unprecedented post-press conference media scrum in place of his boss, Dana White, at the MGM Grand on Saturday night. And if he couldn't back up his talk in the Octagon, those Irish flags would have disappeared from arenas as soon as they had arrived. But UFC 178 was something different than the usual three-ringed circ read news >>

SACRAMENTO, Calif. - T.J. Dillashaw was put in a no-win situation and still came out a winner. He didn't want to give Renan Barao a rematch at UFC 177 just three months after kicking Barao's tail all over the Octagon. He still took the fight. It wasn't Dillashaw's fault that Barao dropped out the day before the card. Offered a dangerous opponent on one day's notice in Joe Soto, Dillashaw accepted the bout and proclaimed "I don't want to be a diva champion." Even getting past those hurdles, there read news >>
