The UFC’s heavyweights have never really found their stride. For a brief time during the Brock Lesnar Administration, the 265-pound division felt fresh and vital. It felt—for lack of a better word—big. But first diverticulitis and then increasingly difficult competition felled Lesnar, and the heavyweight ranks lapsed back into their old, unstable tricks again. Such was the case for almost all of 2014. Current champion Cain Velasquez may be the most talented man ever to fight in the UFC’s heavies read news >>

A pair of hard-hitting heavyweights will meet in Los Angeles. Promising knockout artist Derrick Lewis takes on Ruan Potts at UFC 184 on Feb. 28 at Staples Center, the UFC announced Tuesday.

So get out of here with all that "laying the blueprint" talk. The only man to ever defeat Junior dos Santos inside the Octagon is none other than current Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) heavyweight champion, Cain Velasquez. In the span of 10 months, Velasquez managed to beat "Cigano" from pillar-to-post -- twice -- applying constant pressure every second of each five-round fight, preventing the former division kingpin from relaxing, even if just for a little bit. So you would think the blue read news >>

When the heavyweights enter the cage, fights are usually one punch from being over. And Oliksiy Oliynyk just proved that in his bout with Jake Rosholt. The first three fights of the UFC Fight Night 57 main card in Austin were all pretty good. Two went to the judge's scorecards, and a large man went to sleep in the other one. In brutal fashion. In the opening main card bout, Matt Wiman and Isaac Vallie-Flagg grinded away in the clinch for most of the fight. If they weren't throwing leather and kn read news >>

Jon Jones spoke about his willingness to take on UFC superfights in the future, just not if it's against Anderson Silva. Jon Jones has beaten most of the top light heavyweights the UFC has had for the past few years, and according to the dominant champ, he would be willing to look towards having super fights after a couple more wins. Jones walks around at 230 lbs, and if all goes according to plan, he would conceivably bulk up a bit to 240 lbs and look for heavyweight bouts in the future. MMA Fi read news >>

Did you think a silly little thing like a knockout loss to Fabricio Werdum at UFC 180 last Sat. night (Nov. 11, 2014) in Mexico City was going to boot Mark Hunt from the 265-pound title chase? Pfffft ... as if. While it was "Vai Cavalo" who took home the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) interim heavyweight title, there's no question Hunt -- ranked No. 4 in the top 10 of his weight class -- is likely just two or three big wins away from another crack at the crown. From his post-fight comments read news >>

Head honcho Dana White discusses the UFC 180 main event between Fabricio Werdum and Mark Hunt. Although Fabricio Werdum rightfully earned his spot as the favourite ahead of Saturday night's interim title bout against Mark Hunt, he appeared to be out of sorts early on in the fight, according to UFC President Dana White. Werdum was knocked down several times in the opening round of the contest, and did very little when Hunt found his way into the Brazilian's guard. However, momentum would shift ab read news >>
