In a heavyweight clash between two elite Dutch kickboxers in need of a victory, Alistair Overeem overpowered Stefan Struve to secure a first-round TKO at UFC on Fox 13 on Saturday night. Unable to truly capitalize early in the fight due to Struve's pesky length, Overeem opted to abandon his strong striking skills and take the towering 26-year-old down. As one of the better heavyweights on the mat, Overeem took his time and picked his shots in an effort to avoid Struve's crafty submission ability read news >>

When a fighter comes into their own, special things start to happen, and that is what 2014 has been about for Tony Ferguson. Since entering the UFC by winning season 13 of The Ultimate Fighter, "El Cucuy" has been on a constant push to progress his skills as a mixed martial artist and scrap his way to elite-level status. Ferguson has been out to prove he's the real deal inside the Octagon and the 30-year-old lightweight has been putting up high-caliber performances to back up that notion. The sc read news >>

Truth hurts? Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Heavyweight veteran, Brendan Schaub, had a plan heading into UFC 181 last Saturday night (Dec. 6, 2014) against Travis Browne: Score a huge "Hapa" upset and talk his way into a world title fight ... or at least a No. 1 contender eliminator match. That's quite a bold plan, considering "Hybrid" isn't even a Top 15-ranked fighter and had dropped three of his last five matches heading into this past weekend, including knockout losses to Antonio Rodri read news >>

Schaub was dropped with an uppercut and then repeatedly punched on the ground until the fight was called with 10 seconds left in the 1st.

The Montreal native evolved into the sport's biggest draw and attracted mainstream sponsorships from leading mainstream sports-related products like Gatorade and Under Armour along the way.
