MMA for effort? Former Strikeforce featherweight champion Cristiane Justino has canceled her drop to the bantamweight division, instead opting to remain at 145 pounds when she returns to the cage this February.

The sky isn't falling, but that hasn't stopped the ZUFFA brass from taking shelter. The same company that was recently named one of the "World's Most Valuable Sports Brands," under the leadership of "Brand Genius" (and UFC President) Dana White, is now faced with a 40-percent decline in profits for calendar year 2014, according to Standard & Poor's (S&P).

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) middleweight Tim Kennedy is going under the knife to repair a partially torn meniscus, not long after his controversial technical knockout loss to Yoel Romero at the UFC 178 pay-per-view (PPV) event back in September. And when he returns, according to his conversation with Submission Radio, it may be in a new division. "It's something that's very possible. Like I'm a big strong dude, but obviously I'm super short for my di read news >>

Mark Hunt couldn’t wait to get out of there. That’s the impression you got on Wednesday if you sat through all of Hunt’s long, uncomfortable interview with MMAFighting.com’s Ariel Helwani. Just a few days prior to taking on 4-1 favorite Fabricio Werdum for the interim heavyweight championship at UFC 180, Hunt appeared distracted, displeased with his situation and deeply ambivalent about this weekend’s outcome. In other words, he didn’t sound like he was about to pull off the upset. Hunt began th read news >>

But he would only make the cut down to 185 pounds if he gets to face his idol, Dan Henderson. Aside from division kingpin Jon Jones, Fabio Maldonado currently has the longest light heavyweight winning streak inside the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Octagon. The scrappy Brazilian has won his last four in the 205-pound weight class, with his lone loss during that span coming at the hands of Stipe Miocic, who Maldonado challenged at heavyweight (video). Not too shabby. Unfortunately, Fabio w read news >>

If there's one thing I love about Tim Kennedy, it's his subtlety. The No. 7-ranked middleweight issued a dire warning to struggling light heavyweight striker, Mauricio Rua, after the Brazilian teased a possible drop down to 185 pounds. The same division that houses monsters like Yoel Romero, Luke Rockhold and of course, Kennedy himself. Somebody tell Shogun that it is a VERY bad idea to move down to 185. It is a total shark tank down here and we will all eat him up. — Tim Kennedy (@TimKennedyMMA read news >>
