It wasn't a hard choice, but Carla Esparza gave up her Invicta FC belt to pursue UFC gold on The Ultimate Fighter 20. On Saturday, that decision paid off in a big way. After a close opening round, Esparza used her wrestling to take control against Rose Namajunas. Cookie Monster scored a takedown in the second round and another in the third before locking up a rear-naked choke to become the first UFC strawweight titleholder. While TUF 20 didn't pull in excellent ratings, the fighters impressed. I read news >>

Hard to believe, but this fight is less than two months away. Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) will send Alexander Gustafsson into the UFC on FOX 14 main event to battle fellow light heavyweight contender Anthony Johnson inside the Tele2 Arena in Stockholm, Sweden, on Jan. 24, 2015.

Ahead of his headlining bout opposite fellow Hall of Famer Stephan Bonnar Saturday at Bellator 131, former UFC light heavyweight champion Tito Ortiz claims he not only snuck a mole into his opponent's training camp, but pulled the strings to have him signed by the promotion in the first place.
