Any chance of Cris Cyborg vs. Ronda Rousey happening any time soon may very well be shot to pieces following confirmation from Cyborg that she's not going to cut to bantamweight. One of the biggest factors in getting UFC women's bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey set up with a huge fight with #1 women's featherweight Cris Cyborg was whether or not Cyborg would drop to 135 lbs to fight Rousey. It's something that Rousey has demanded, even though Cyborg has never competed in the division. With her read news >>

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. The Brazilian fighter was cut from the UFC in 2013 after failing to release a heel hook following a win over Mike Pierce, his second such incident in the company. "He's known for, you know, kind o read news >>

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. That would be a remarkable feat for anyone, but the fact it’s happening in the stacked lightweight division—where guys like Khabib Nurmagomedov and Myles Jury can run off a half-dozen read news >>

RIO DE JANEIRO -- Renan Barao had the chance to regain his UFC title in August, but passed out while cutting weight for his UFC 177 main event with T.J. Dillashaw. Four months later, the Nova Uniao fighter returns to the Octagon against Mitch Gagnon, and he's implementing some changes for his pre-fight routine. The former UFC bantamweight champion -- who was riding a 33-fight unbeaten streak until losing his belt to the heavy underdog Dillashaw at UFC 173 -- Barao has always struggled to make 13 read news >>

It's been years since Jon Jones first teased an eventual move up to heavyweight. With his lanky 6-foot-4 frame and UFC-best 84.5-inch reach, the reigning light heavyweight champ and No. 1 pound-for-pound fighter in the sport has always believed he'd be competitive in MMA's hardest-hitting division. But now, with the UFC's 205-pound weight class, at most, two or three fights away from being cleared out, Jones has begun plotting out a course for his future that includes potential superfights again read news >>

MEXICO CITY -- It goes without saying, but fight week at UFC 180 hasn't exactly been the festive experience Cain Velasquez expected when he first signed his contract to headline the UFC's grand entry into Mexico. The sidelined heavyweight champion, who was once the lynchpin of the event, is now just an unfortunate side note, forced to hobble around on crutches while Fabricio Werdum and The Ultimate Fighter: Latin America cast soak in the party. "(I'm) just very disappointed in general," Velasque read news >>

Top contenders fly by the few. Given the chance to ascend their respective divisions in an effort to hoist UFC gold, these select competitors are often thrown to the wolves. But as vicious and dominating as the UFC's current champions can be, they aren't untouchable. That leaves a small window for these rising threats to overcome the odds, bolster their skills and challenge the best titleholders in the world. However, they themselves are not perfect and must also iron out wrinkles in their game. read news >>
