Big John McCarthy last officiated a UFC bout in Nevada in 2007, a long time for one of MMA’s most revered referees to stay out of the "fight capital of the world." That will all change on Sept. 27, when McCarthy will join the rotation of officials at UFC 178 at the MGM Grand. Yahoo’s Kevin Iole reported that McCarthy was coming back in mid-August. McCarthy had been vocal about his distaste for the Nevada Athletic Commission and its former head, Keith Kizer. But with a new regime in place, and pl read news >>

Being one of the best mixed martial artists on the face of the planet probably gets you a ticket into the UFC. Being one of the best mixed martial artists on the face of the planet doesn't make you an automatic qualifier as a fan favorite, though. If Brock Lesnar and Tito Ortiz proved anything in their illustrious fighting careers, it was that no matter how dominant they could possibly be, they always managed to rub a good portion of the MMA community the wrong way. Lesnar was hated because of h read news >>

The moment John McCarthy jumped in to stop the Rafael dos Anjos vs. Benson Henderson fight on Saturday night in Tulsa, the UFC's lightweight championship picture was suddenly muddled up. Henderson (21-3) was in the Rich Franklin position during Anderson Silva's middleweight title reign, of being arguably the second-best fighter in the division behind champion Anthony Pettis, but not being in contention for a title shot. Pettis had beaten him twice, and did so quickly and decisively in their seco read news >>

Another Benson Henderson fight, another judging controversy. Only this time one had nothing to do with the other. Howard Hughes, not the dead tycoon but an actual breathing judge on Saturday’s first card in Macau, was made to believe he wasn’t a very good arbiter just two fights into UFC Fight Night 48. The UFC, acting as its own commission overseas, relieved Hughes of his duties for incompetence in judging the Royston Wee-Yao Zhikui and Milana Dudieva-Elizabeth Phillips’ bouts. This became the read news >>

When Benson Henderson fights, you can usually count on getting comfortable. There's time to secure your popcorn, visit the loo and make sure your stamp collection is in order. There is no rush, no funny feeling in your stomach, no threat of imminent violence. There's just a man, a fence and a clinch. It's a formula that's led to nine decisions in his last 11 fights. So you can forgive me for settling in for the long haul last night just as Rafael dos Anjos redrew the lines of an incredibly compl read news >>

It's probably safe to say no one saw that coming. Riding a win streak of a couple of fights (19 non-Anthony Pettis fights if you want to get crazy with it) and looking like he'd never be far beyond nipping at the champ's heels, Benson Henderson walked into Tulsa, Oklahoma, and got himself knocked out. The culprit, Rafael dos Anjos, is a grappling ace who has developed the type of technique that accentuates his physical tools nicely and just happened to peak in the biggest fight of his life. Hend read news >>

The UFC Fight Night 49 main event between Rafael dos Anjos and Benson Henderson hardly went as expected on Saturday. Only one second past the midway point of the opening round, dos Anjos landed a barrage of strikes that resulted in Henderson's first career knockout loss. It started with a flying knee that forced a Henderson takedown attempt. As Henderson stood back up after failing to finish the takedown, dos Anjos cracked the former lightweight champion with a left hand that forced referee John read news >>
