It's strange to think that 11 fights and nearly four years into her amazing MMA career, we still have no idea how to talk about Ronda Rousey. Through five appearances in the Octagon—capped by Saturday’s 14-second destruction of Cat Zingano at UFC 184—the women’s bantamweight champion has been so dominant that all our normal buzzwords fall pathetically short. The lasting impression is that Rousey is so far ahead of her time—not to mention her best competition—that her own peers and her own employ read news >>

Bleacher Report lead mixed martial arts writers Jonathan Snowden and Jeremy Botter have banded together—much like a modern-day version of Wham!—to take on the most important questions facing the MMA world. Welcome to The Question. In his last two fights, the once-great Anderson Silva was knocked unconscious and had his leg snapped into pieces. It seemed like an ignominious end to an amazing career.

For many fighters, 2014 served as their platform for success. Those who achieved greatness during the year did so by becoming UFC champions, positioning themselves as title contenders or remaining undefeated while filming a couple of major motion pictures. For others, 2014 gave way to their downfall and signified their demise. Some were trashed in the media by UFC President Dana White, and others were felled by performance enhancers and random drug tests. All in all, sensational headlines were d read news >>

As if anyone needed further validation of Jose Aldo's greatness, the champ put on a display at UFC 179 that reminded fans of his former WEC days. Aldo's fight with Chad Mendes started nearly the same as the T.J. Dillashaw vs. Renan Barao bout earlier this year, with the Team Alpha Male fighter dropping the champion early. But instead of the knockdown setting the tone for the entire fight, Aldo's championship resolve showed through as the Brazilian scored a knockdown of his own to end the first f read news >>

Jose Aldo is the only featherweight champion the UFC has ever had. It has been nearly nine years since he gave up the only loss of his career, and truth be told, he has rarely been challenged since that night. He stormed into the WEC in 2008 and finished his first five opponents, then finished champion Mike Brown to capture the featherweight title. That championship eventually became the UFC featherweight title, and Aldo's held it ever since. But those six finishes to begin his Zuffa career? Tho read news >>

Some fighters are shipped to the UFC with "greatness" stamped onto the package. For example, Anderson Silva immediately made his presence known within the first minute of his UFC debut. Jon Jones ran through every single opponent, regardless of the name, like a hot knife through butter. Other fighters don't have that stamp of domination from the start. These are the fighters who, for one reason or another, took time to improve and hone their skills before they could be considered atop the crowd read news >>

Throughout the brief yet layered history of mixed martial arts, a handful of iconic figures have come along, but nothing casts a net of mystique quite like what we've seen out of the heavyweight division. There is something enigmatic about those who can dominate the largest collective across a chaotic landscape, and the greatest of those have reached a status of almost mythical proportions. Fedor Emelianenko and Brock Lesnar evoked something their peers have never, and may never, duplicate. That read news >>

Before there were punches and kicks, chokes and locks, broken noses and bruised necks, there was a field. And Georgi Karakhanyan ruled it. As a child growing up in Russia, the current World Series of Fighting featherweight champion did not see fighting in his future. He saw soccer, and he became obsessed with the sport. He would travel by train for 45 minutes, catch a bus for another 15 and then walk three miles just to get to the training facility. Once there, the mental and physical strain did read news >>

Remember Frankie Edgar? That guy was great. He'd go into a fight looking like your little brother who wrestled in high school, then beat the snot out of legends and lightweight leviathans alike. Knock him down? He's right back up and in your face. Win a round? He's going to come back and win the next four. Think you're going to take his title from him in an endless run of rematches? He's game, and he'll knock you out in the last one just for an exclamation point. Yeah, that Frankie Edgar guy was read news >>
