Looking at the human side of UFC 183: Silva vs Diaz in the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. To the surprise of no-one, Nick Diaz vs Anderson Silva was a very odd fight. It wasn't quite the barn-burner that a few had hoped for, but then again, neither was it the snuff movie that some had feared. We didn't have to watch an aging middleweight legend get pushed up against the fence and eat endless multi-punch combinations, nor did we have to uncomfortably sit through Nick Diaz getting fl read news >>

Jon Jones was once advertised by Nike as “Not Quite Human,” but recent events have proven that the 27-year-old UFC champ is every bit as flawed and culpable as any other human being. It seems like yesterday that Jones was hoisting up the light heavyweight title, grinning ear to ear after having defeated his greatest adversary. The win over Daniel Cormier, a former Olympian, was paramount in establishing Jones as the greatest pound-for-pound fighter of all time. It appeared like Jones would get t read news >>

We've all spent considerable time during Jon Jones' six-and-a-half-year run in the UFC trying to figure out if he is the man he portrays himself as. In the wake of news this week, via Steven Marrocco of MMAJunkie.com, that the fight company's brilliant but often perplexing light heavyweight champion checked into a drug rehabilitation clinic after failing a Nevada State Athletic Commission test for the primarily metabolite for cocaine, perhaps we can finally agree to meet in the middle. Jones, it read news >>

As much Joker as Batman, Jones has molded himself into the hero as well as the villain. And now he's staking his claim as the greatest of all time. What makes the psychology of Jones the man so integral to Jones the fighter? To paraphrase and mangle the great Mr. Campbell, a fighter ventures forth from the world of common day into a region of supernatural violence: fabulous forces are there encountered and a decisive victory is won: the fighter comes back from this attritive adventure with the p read news >>

Remember when Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) President Dana White was flying to remote regions with a blank check to court former PRIDE heavyweight champion Fedor Emelianenko (and Vadummy) and still couldn't get a deal done? That was chicken feed. Especially when compared to the ongoing negotiations with female mixed martial arts (MMA) icon Gina Carano, who White told FOX Sports was the hardest human being he's ever dealt with, thanks to the "pain in the ass lawyers" charged with handling read news >>

"I don't know, we'll see how these things play out. Just incredibly difficult. We've dealt with read news >>

There's something so cool about UFC heavyweight Mark Hunt (10-8-1)—entrancing even. He's a human paradox, a man whose very existence defies the carefully crafted rules that govern the world of combat sports. A gargantuan with neck tattoos and fists of granite, he should be one of the scariest men alive. A man who beats people up for a living definitely shouldn't exude such zen and peace, even in the midst of carnage. And yet... In the cage there are no secrets, not when Hunt, 40, is fighting. Hi read news >>
