For the second straight week, the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Heavyweight division rankings have experienced a major shake up. Even though he wasn't in mixed martial arts (MMA) action last weekend, struggling standout Alistair Overeem continued to slide thanks to Andrei Arlovski, who scored a first round knockout of Antonio Silva on Saturday night (Sept. 13, 2013) at UFC Fight Night 51 from Nilson read news >>

Another week, another heavyweight upset, and another unlikely entrant into the UFC's top 10 rankings. As everyone expected, the MMA landscape in 2014 features Andrei Arlovski, Mark Hunt, and Ben Rothwell in the top 10 of the UFC's heavyweight division. Arlovski's shock KO over Antonio Silva proved to be good enough to skyrocket the former champion from #14 to #7. And to think, he and top 10 LHW Anthony Johnson were in a World Series of Fighting main event early last year. Any changes to the rank read news >>

Given that Bjorn Rebney brought former UFC light heavyweight champion Tito Ortiz out of retirement, one might assume the former UFC light heavyweight champion was disappointed to see the company's former CEO get shown the door. One would be wrong. On Monday's edition of The MMA Hour, Ortiz said that he was as happy as anyone else when he heard the news Rebney had been shown the door and Strikeforce founder Scott Coker was tapped to take his place.

In a Bellator light heavyweight division overrun by retread match-ups, aging stars, and made-for-TV feuds, Liam McGeary is above all else a welcome breath of fresh air. For the better part of two years, the six-foot-six Englishman has fashioned the Bellator cage into his own personal playground, perfecting the art of the walk-off knockout while twisting his foes into knots when those fistic flairs of his fail to suffice.

That is above the the typical peak for athletic greatness. In fact, when breaking down the heavyweight division's Top 10 you will see how old the division is. Arlovski's victory contin read news >>

As each knockout artist comes into UFC Fight Night 52 this Saturday securely positioned within the division's top 10, the victor may very well reap the spoils. A decisive finish for Hunt or Nelson could propel eit read news >>

Bellator light heavyweight and UFC Hall of Famer Tito Ortiz seems to have a lot of legitimate hatred toward Stephan Bonnar, his upcoming opponent at Bellator 131 on November 15. Making an appearance on Submission Radio earlier today, Ortiz ripped "The American Psycho" for his two failed drug tests for anabolic steroids during his career—among other things. The fact of him getting burned for steroids not once but twice. I mean the guy is a phony, the guy is a fake, the guy is, you know he's just read news >>
