Three years, 61 seconds, and now it's time to get the belt back. Because of how long he was out of action -- he missed almost three full years due to various injuries and setbacks while attempting to recover from those injuries -- it's easy to forget that Dominick Cruz was once one of the best pound-for-pound fighters in the world. In fact, he never lost the bantamweight championship he last successfully defended against current flyweight champion, Demetrious Johnson. He simply vacated it due to read news >>

True story, apparently. "I have to be honest; I beat up T.J. Dillashaw in my freshman year of college wrestling. Beat him up. I was right there; I could have really done something in wrestling. I could have competed at the Division-I level, no question, but I was a dumb kid and I was having too much fun playing beer pong and partying.

The UFC opted to schedule an immediate rematch between Dillashaw and Barao for UFC 177, leaving Assuncao out one once again. Unbeaten over the past six bouts, including a split decision victory over Dillashaw in 2013, Assun read news >>

As anyone reading this story likely already knows, his scheduled rematch with former champ Renan Barao was scrapped a day earlier, when Barao failed to make weight. In essence, what was already a ba read news >>

Joe Soto may have come up short against bantamweight champ T.J. Dillashaw, but he's good enough to be ranked in the latest UFC rankings update. When you have a card like UFC 177, which was completely devoid of ranked fighters after the main event, the rankings don't really experience much in the way of change. For the most part, that was the case this week, but the biggest changes in the rankings involved Renan Barao, who didn't fight at all on Saturday, and Joe Soto, who was Barao's replacement read news >>
