Often times it seems that the speed of news is faster than the speed of the UFC's internal processes. It's something of a running joke, that the last people to hear about MMA news are the fighters themselves. Often, when speaking on current events in the MMA world, fighters will reveal that they themselves go the news through Twitter, or through a friend at the gym who read something online. Still, it's a little shocking when that news is a fight announcement, and the fighter finding out on Twit read news >>

I'm sure it sounded like a good idea at the time (or not). Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) positioned its UFC Fight Night 59 mixed martial arts (MMA) event for this Sunday night (Jan. 18, 2015), using the NFC championship game as a lead-in to the FOX Sports 1 extravaganza, which kicks off at 6 p.m. ET on UFC Fight Pass. And since the promotion is going to bring its brand of mixed martial arts (MMA) back to New England, it enlisted Irish superstar Conor McGregor, who lays claim to a sizable read news >>

Robinson lends his "one"-of-a-"kind" "perspective" to JON JONES complete extirpation of DANIEL CORMIER's soul at UFC 182 and why this is so massively significant not just in the light heavyweight division but for all of MMA.

Cris Cyborg will not cut down to 135 pounds after all. Two and a half months after announcing her decision to drop to the bantamweight division for a bout at Invicta FC 10, the first and only Strikeforce and Invicta FC featherweight champion confirmed she won’t try cutting the extra 10 pounds anymore. "I can’t. From now on, I will only fight at my weight or in a catchweight," Cyborg told Tatame on Monday. "I haven’t fought in a long time and that’s why I want to go back to my division."

Rory MacDonald may not be a lock for a title shot after all. UFC President Dana White is mulling over the possibility of an immediate rematch between Robbie Lawler and Johny Hendricks following a controversial decision at UFC 181 in another epic slugfest. “I don’t know. The trilogy wouldn’t be a bad idea,” White said on Fox Sports 1 (via Shaun Al-Shatti of MMAFighting.com). “We’ll see what happens.” MacDonald was expected to be next in line for a shot at UFC gold after dismantling Tarec Saffiedi read news >>

UFC President Dana White discusses the UFC 181 main event and whether the promotion will look to make a trilogy fight between Johny Hendricks and Robbie Lawler. Although many assumed that Rory MacDonald had earned his shot at the welterweight title, Johny Hendricks' luck with the Las Vegas judges left a somewhat controversial mark on the UFC 181 main event. However, as UFC President Dana White has preached repeatedly over the years, a fighter only has himself to blame for allowing the judges to read news >>

Johny Hendricks and Las Vegas judges apparently just don't get along. A little over a year after Hendricks dropped a controversial split decision to then-champion Georges St-Pierre, history repeated itself at UFC 181 as Hendricks faded late and lost another controversial split decision, this time to hand over his UFC welterweight title to Robbie Lawler. "I say to these guys all the time: don't leave it in the hands of these judges," UFC President Dana White said of the decision on FOX Sports 1. read news >>

It looks like oddsmakers aren't buying into the idea that Dennis Siver is an especially difficult matchup for Conor McGregor. While he's drifting as low as -600 (to Siver's +400) over on SportsInteraction.com. Those are the shortest odds on Conor McGregor over Dennis Siver, by a fair distance. McGregor opened at a smiliar number for 5Dimes, but has already shot to -1000. Numbers from Bovada and SportsBet aren't much lower. McGregor is even riding at -462 to finish inside the distance.

T.P. Grant takes a new idea out for a dry run as he breaks down the in cage action of a weekend triple header of MMA action. This is a test run of a new show that I'm hoping to make a regular part of Bloody Elbow's post fight coverage. The concept of the show is a sober look back at weekend of MMA divorced from the knee-jerk emotional reactions of fight night and present thought out perspectives on some of the technical work and big picture issues that played out in cage. This episode covers fig read news >>
