Neil Magny left nothing to chance on Saturday night. And as a result, he etched his name in the UFC's record books. The Colorado-based fighter turned up the heat in the second and third round of his UFC 179 fight against William Macario, earning a TKO victory. With that, Magny tied a UFC modern-day record. With his fifth win, he ties a one-year record set by Roger Huerta, who went 5-0 in 2007. Magny (13-3) edged Macario, a TUF: Brazil 2 finalist, in the first round, the fight's closest, by using read news >>

Yoel Romero spent much of the last 18 months establishing himself as the UFC middleweight division’s most wonderfully weird newcomer. Romero is the hulking Olympic wrestling silver medalist who prefers flying knees and standing elbows to double-leg takedowns (though he’s got those, too). At 37 years old, his physique looks carved out of granite, and even though he comes to press conferences dressed like a lost castmember from Newsies, his mild mannerisms don’t quite convince us he’s the benevole read news >>
