LOS ANGELES - Two weeks ago in Calgary, UFC president Dana White alluded to the eventual arrival of a 115-pound weight class in the UFC. The comment took some fans and analysts by surprise - the UFC added the 125-pound flyweight division only this year, and many people believed there simply might not be enough talent around to fill a 115-pound division. On Thursday, White expanded on his vision for UFC divisional expansion and thinks the weight class may be just around the corner. read news >>

CALGARY - Tim Boetsch didn't exactly make a convincing case for a UFC middleweight title shot. Unlike Chris Weidman's emphatic win over Mark Munoz a few weeks prior, Boetsch's close victory over Hector Lombard at Saturday's UFC 149 event won't have fans clamoring for his immediate shot at champion Anderson Silva. UFC president Dana White, though, is willing to give the "Barbarian" a pass. read news >>

CALGARY - You don't get a second chance to make a first impression, but following Saturday's frustrating UFC 149 event at Calgary's Scotiabank Saddledome, UFC president Dana White has vowed a return trip to Calgary.

CALGARY - Matt Riddle has nothing against fellow welterweight Dan Hardy. Aside, maybe, from his nationality. Following an impressive "Submission of the Night" victory over Chris Clements at Saturday's UFC 149 event, Riddle respectively mentioned Hardy as an opponent he'd like to fight next. But his stump speech took a bizarre turn when he recalled an English fight fan who once spat in his mouth. read news >>

CALGARY - Winless in his past five championship fights, Urijah Faber's next move is currently unclear. However, the former WEC featherweight champion has immediately ruled out at least one possibility: He is absolutely not considering a drop to 125 pounds. "No way," Faber told MMAjunkie.com. "I put on 18 pounds last night, and I would probably not be here if I was trying to get to 125. No, 135 is where I'll be." read news >>

CALGARY - The heavily hyped UFC debut of former Bellator middleweight champ Hector Lombard was an utter failure, and UFC president Dana White thinks it may be time for the former Olympic judoka to consider a new weightclass. After Lombard turned in a lackluster effort against Tim Boetsch at Saturday night's UFC 149 event, the UFC boss said the stocky middleweight should at least consider dropping to 170 pounds. "Lombard maybe should fight at 170 pounds," White said. "He made 185 easi read news >>

CALGARY - With UFC bantamweight champion Dominick Cruz still uncertain when he'll return to action, UFC president Dana White believes new interim champ Renan Barao will defend his title before the belts are unified.

"Renan's not injured at all," White said. "He'll fight again. He's not hurt, and we'll see what happens." read news >>

CALGARY - Is there any way Ryan Jimmo's Saturday night could have been better? The light heavyweight made his long-awaited UFC debut. He got to fight on the prelims on FX. He fought in front of his home crowd in Canada. And he bagged a UFC record-tying seven-second knockout. The only way Jimmo's introduction to the UFC fan base could have been better is with a six-second KO, or a five. And that nearly was the case. read news >>

CALGARY - Saturday's UFC 149 co-main event was supposed to provide a little clarity to the middleweight title picture. And it did - sort of. Tim Boetsch, a more than 3-to-1 underdog in his fight against former Bellator middleweight champ Hector Lombard, won a split decision - snapping Lombard's 25-fight unbeaten streak and throwing a wrench into the 185-pound class. And because of that upset, UFC president Dana White was no closer after the card to figuring out the next opponent for ch read news >>
