And I'm pretty sure you won't hear any complaints from fans, either. Former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) heavyweight titleholder Randy Couture was oh-so-close to having a 265-pound showdown against ex-PRIDE division kingpin Fedor Emelianenko, back in 2008 when "The Natural" tried to retire from UFC and move on to bigger and better things. We all know how that turned out. But that doesn't mean he has closed the door on a potential showdown against "The Last Emperor." Sure, both fighters a read news >>

BANGOR, Maine – Dana White loved the idea of having an event in Maine so much that he convinced all the hands controlling the UFC’s purse strings to humor him and put on Saturday night’s show. Lorenzo Fertitta, who always was a soft touch, consented because Maine has always been a sort of childhood fantasyland for White, who to this day owns a property here where he shoots off guns and fireworks and buys smart cars while blotto. And as far as splurge cards go, UFC Fight Night 47 was pretty freak read news >>

Some fighters seem allergic to the idea of calling another fighter out. Others are all about that. Dana White is certainly a fan of the call-out. White told reporters that texting him "15 times a day" wouldn't get Tyron Woodley a fight against Carlos Condit...until it did. Hector Lombard has been calling dudes out left and right of late. Lombard, who was supposed to face Dong Hyun Kim at UFC Fight Night 48 before getting injured, proclaimed back in April on UFC Tonight that Nick Diaz was "runnin read news >>

SAN JOSE, Calif. - So much for the idea that Gina Carano would end up under UFC contract by the end of the week. UFC president Dana White said at Saturday's UFC on FOX 12 post-fight press conference that completion of a deal to bring back the first big star of women's mixed martial arts is still a ways off.

Steven Siler decided it would be a good idea to start training. After all, he was 12 fights deep into his professional MMA career, accumulating a 5-7 record over that stretch. He'd horse around with his friend—former UFC welterweight Jorge Lopez—and pick up some techniques, but as far as a formal training regimen goes, Siler had none. He was just a scrappy kid who wanted to be on local TV and earn a few bucks, so once he turned 18, he granted his own wish. "He (Lopez) started training a little b read news >>

That's the fight we want to do and that's the fight that Chris Weidman wants. I love this kid calling out Vitor. "The champ wants to fight Vitor Belfort, man. I don't bla read news >>

Not since "Duel" has a guy in a truck caused this much aggravation. The "truck" has a breakdown ... in communication! I'm referring, of course, to the mystery man in the production truck, who was buzzing in UFC color commentator Joe Rogan's ear, asking him to put Ronda Rousey on the hook for UFC 176, shortly after she was done mopping the floor with Alexis Davis at UFC 175. A question that caused UFC President Dana White to "blow a gasket." Not long after the incident, Rogan took to The Undergro read news >>
