While Antonio Silva continued his drop down the UFC heavyweight rankings, a pair of unlikely winners from Sunday's Fight Night in Porto Alegre found themselves in the top 15. The wave of underdog wins at UFC Fight Night: Bigfoot vs. Mir shook up the latest rankings in a big way. Antonio Silva is no longer a top 10 heavyweight, while Marion Reneau is a top 10 women's bantamweight and Frankie Saenz is top 15 in men's bantamweight. Michael Johnson went from outside the top 10 of lightweight to just read news >>

Coach Mike Winkeljohn not pulling any punches. Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) light heavyweight champion Jon Jones doesn't have a drug problem -- as evidenced by his 24-hour stint in rehab -- he has a partying problem. That's according to his striking coach Mike Winkeljohn. In the famed trainer's view, "Bones" is far from an addict, but admitted during his conversation on The MMA Hour that his star pupil has a tendency to party quite a bit; even close to fight night. His words (via MMA Fig read news >>

The beginning of 2015 was bittersweet for UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones, who defended his title against Daniel Cormier at UFC 182 only to have it come to light that he tested positive for cocaine in an out-of-competition test. Though the drug certainly didn’t help Jones in his fight on Jan. 3, it did alert people that there might be a behind-the-scenes problem. Jones himself propelled the notion when he checked into rehab for a night. Since then those close to him have gone on record read news >>

Three-and-a-half years ago, in the early fall of 2011, the present-day reality of the UFC's light heavyweight title picture would have seemed outlandish, ridiculous and utterly impossible. "Anthony 'Rumble' Johnson will never fight Jon 'Bones' Jones," you would have said. Bones was coming off a fourth-round destruction of Quinton "Rampage" Jackson in his first title defense; Johnson was head-kicking natural lightweights while repeatedly struggling to make the welterweight division's 170-pound cu read news >>

Further appreciation and apoplexy for the occasion or PRIDE FC’s 17-year anniversary. It's like they say: you can never have too many scattered thoughts about PRIDE Fighting Championships. The PRIDE referees were awful. I found them far more obnoxious than the average referee. Yuji Shimada, you don't have to point at fighters and shout "Give up?!" whenever their opponents begin to set up a submission. There's something in place for that, it's called a tap-out. Please get the fuck out of the way read news >>

Seventeen years ago this month, under the Tokyo Dome, PRIDE FC held its inaugural event. Rickson Gracie and pro-wrestling hero Nobuhiko Takada fought at the top of a card only six bouts long, featuring fighters with a cumulative record of 63-21-3, a figure that drops to a much more modest 43-19-2 if read news >>
