Early PPV estimates for UFC 184 are showing that Ronda Rousey could in fact be the biggest star in the UFC's roster right now. Ronda Rousey is already a media darling who is able to tap markets and audiences in a way that other UFC stars can't. It's been questioned if that would translate into actual PPV buys, especially on a card like UFC 184 that's topped by two women's fights and no one else with real name value. The preliminary card drew an impressive 1.2 million viewers, and peaked at 1.45 read news >>

Burt Watson's reported exit from the UFC has come as a shock to many fans, as he has long been one of the cornerstones of Zuffa's event promotion. Responsible for booking rides, helping with weight cuts, timing walkouts, and all sorts of other little jobs, the idea that he could suddenly be gone feels almost surreal. Even stranger are the r read news >>

When it comes to women's MMA, UFC women's bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey hasn't yet found an equal inside the Octagon. At UFC 184, Cat Zingano will try to prove that she is Rousey's equal. To this point, Rousey hasn't just gone undefeated; she has obliterated anyone standing in her way. The 28-year-old's perfect 10-0 record is enhanced by the fact that all 10 fights have ended in stoppage. Her fights have combined for only 12 total rounds. Rousey has been in the cage for as many rounds as on read news >>

That's right around the same time when Thiago Alves was the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) 170-pound No. 1 contender. A lot has changed in six years. But not the fact that Condit vs. Alves would still be a great fight.

Gustafsson left the Octagon in tears in front of roughly 30,000 fans in his hometown of Stockholm, Sweden. He was probably still a little dazed, wondering how a read news >>
