Julianna Pena made history by becoming the first-ever female winner of The Ultimate Fighter (TUF), defeating Jessica Rakoczy via first-round technical knockout at The Ultimate Fighter 19 Finale on Nov. 30, 2013.

Name one thing in pro MMA more exciting than a flying-knee knockout like the one we saw from Chris Beal. Don't give me gogoplata or calf slicer.

Jon Jones is the best fighter in the history of mixed martial arts. The people who dislike him will disagree, but that doesn't make the statement any less true.

But every now and then one of those blood feuds comes along and, buddy, you better believe it’s real. It’s as real as it gets, if you will.
