World Series of Fighting welterweight champion Rousmiar Palhares carries a reputation into his title defense against Jon Fitch on Saturday night in Sacramento. And Fitch admits he's wary of his controversial foe. Palhares is known as a leg lock master -- and one who isn't always sportsmanlike about it.

If you’re Gilbert Melendez you must be pretty happy with how it all worked out. In quieter moments, perhaps you can even marvel at your own good fortune. When Melendez takes on Anthony Pettis on Saturday at UFC 181, it will mark his second opportunity to win UFC gold in just three career fights inside the Octagon.
