Sounds like Alexander Gustafsson's mother was going to take a page out of the Nick Diaz playbook and launch a full-scale attack on UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones while "Bones" was laid up in the hospital. Too bad she didn't go over and check on him. You know, "to get some fans." Lady "Mauler" was pissed off at the sight of Jones because he just spent 25 minutes punching her baby boy. And after the dust settled in the UFC 165 pay-per-view (PPV) main event in Las Vegas, Nevada, both comp read news >>

Anthony Johnson's resurgence has been one of the best comeback stories in the 21-year history of mixed martial arts. Rumble was once a talented, yet floundering welterweight struggling to beat the scale then his opponent on fight night, and those inconsistencies led to the South Florida transplant losing his place on the UFC roster in 2012. Being released from Zuffa served as a wake-up call for the heavy-handed veteran, and he took his skill set to a variety of smaller platforms—and a few new we read news >>

In a month where the UFC held four major events, one could make the argument that Anthony Johnson -- one of MMA’s great resurrection stories -- stole the show in January. Johnson went to Stockholm, Sweden to face the country’s native son Alexander Gustafsson at UFC on FOX 14, in what was a set-up for a rematch between Gustafsson and light heavyweight champion Jon Jones. So what did he do? In front of 30,000 partisans, Johnson scored a TKO victory over Gustafsson. He not only stole away the Swede read news >>

Because "The Mauler" has been through hell and back trying to get a rematch against Jon Jones, and "Rumble" can sympathize with that. Just because Anthony Johnson is a 205-pound wrecking machine with enough power in his hands to lay out an elephant, doesn't mean he can't feel bad for knocking out his opponents. At least, that was the case when he did that very thing to Alexander Gustafsson a few weeks back at UFC on FOX 14 in Stockholm, Sweden, as "Rumble" finished "The Mauler" in the very first read news >>

Could it be? Hype can be a dangerous thing. According to Rashad Evans, that seems to be the case for Alexander Gustafsson, the poster boy for Swedish mixed martial arts (MMA) who recently suffered a devastating loss to "Suga's" friend and Blackzilian teammate, Anthony Johnson, at UFC on FOX 14 in Stockholm, Sweden. See it again here. To hear Rashad tell it, it seems "The Mauler" may have let the hype get to him -- something that is often hard to control -- and could have played a big factor in h read news >>

While still looking for his next opponent, Rashad Evans makes a few harsh comments about Swedish superstar Alexander Gustafsson. After Daniel Cormier lost to Jon Jones at UFC 182 and Alexander Gustafsson got annihilated by Anthony Johnson at UFC on FOX in Sweden, everybody thought a matchup between the two top-light-heavyweight contenders would make perfect sense.

As Anthony Johnson's Blackzilians training partner, Rashad Evans knew his teammate had the tools to defeat Alexander Gustafsson. But he also thinks that Gustafsson was, in part, a victim of his own hype in the lead-up to Johnson's first-round TKO victory last month at UFC on FOX 13 in Stockholm. "One of the reasons why I felt AJ won was that Gustafsson, I like Gustafsson, Gustafsson is a cool guy and everything," Evans said on Monday's edition of The MMA Hour. "But I honestly felt like he actual read news >>
