ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. -- Two weeks ago, on a balmy winter night in the desert, Jamie Varner unceremoniously knocked himself silly while fending off the advances of a kid who'd still been a cage virgin at the time of Varner's championship heyday in the WEC. It wasn't the first time things failed to go his way, but this time there would be no coming back. Varner lost just seconds later, his fifth such speed bump over his last six tries, and promptly retired from the sport of mixed martial arts at the read news >>

ALBUQUERQUE, NM -- For a guy who failed to make it past the opening round on The Ultimate Fighter 14, Myles Jury has acclimated himself mighty well in the UFC. At just 26 years old, the streaking lightweight prospect has racked up a perfect 6-0 record over increasingly tougher opposition ever since his show run ended against Al Iaquinta in 2012, ultimately vaulting his name into the division's top-10 and earning a crack against one of the division's top contenders, Donald Cerrone, in the co-main read news >>

ALBUQUERQUE, NM -- Say what you will about Jon Jones, but it's rare to see the UFC's light heavyweight champion caught in the theatrical world of ‘beef' quite like he is with UFC 182 rival Daniel Cormier. In fact, only twice before have we even seen Jones approach something like this. First with Quinton "Rampage" Jackson, though that relationship always seemed more snippy than anything. The second time was Rashad Evans, and that one was bad. A jilted former training partner who bickered endlessl read news >>

ALBUQUERQUE, NM -- The latter half of 2014 has been a rough one for John Dodson. Just when he was about to get his second crack at champion Demetrious Johnson, flyweight's endlessly jubilant number-one contender suffered a torn ACL and meniscus in his left knee this past July, cutting short his title campaign before it could even get started. The months since have been agonizingly slow -- it turns out rehab isn't made for a 125er who lives life in fast-forward -- but with the year finally coming read news >>

ALBUQUERQUE, NM -- In the four short years since Jon Jones captured the UFC's light heavyweight strap as a raw and creative athletic specimen at age 23, much has been written about Jones' maturation outside of the cage. And in a curious way, all that noise has helped to disguise Jones' growth where it really matters most, how the polished champion of 2014 barely resembles the unhinged talent who stole the souls of the division's old guard in those early years. Whether it's outwrestling the wrest read news >>

ALBUQUERQUE, NM -- By now it's pretty clear the promotional angles for UFC 182 differ greatly from those of most other major UFC pay-per-views. The biggest culprit for that is the chain of events that took place in early August, when a scuffle between light heavyweight champion Jon Jones and Daniel Cormier tumbled off the stage in the MGM Grand, then continued in expletive-laden form as the two bickered across a live (but assumedly off-the-record) television signal for a majority of the afternoo read news >>

ALBUQUERQUE, NM -- The first thing Holly Holm did last month after pulling out of her UFC debut? First, she cried. Then... well, she made a bed. "Like, out of wood," Holm says, laughing. "I Googled it and took my time doing it. I had to do something. "I have pictures. It's legit. It's a double, but the headboard's really high. And I made the whole frame and everything. It's on a cast with wheels. And a matching nightstand. Hardest thing I've ever done is the drawers. One of our spare rooms didn' read news >>
