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 >>

31 fights after his UFC debut, Robbie Lawler earned the UFC welterweight title with a razor-close split decision victory over former champion Johny Hendricks in their highly anticipated rematch in the main event of UFC 181 this past Saturday night (Dec. 6, 2014). With No. 1 contender Rory MacDonald waiting in the wings for a UFC title shot and a potential trilogy fight on the line between Hendricks and Lawler, UFC President Dana White was non-committal on both options. Even the most satisfying o 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 >>

Top-10 UFC middleweight Tim Kennedy says that it would be a bad career move for former Pride and UFC light heavyweight champ Mauricio Rua to cut down to 185 pounds. "Shogun," who suffered the most one-sided loss of his career against Ovince St. Preux at UFC Fight Night 56, hinted that a cut to middleweight may be his next move in a Facebook post from Monday morning. Kennedy disagrees, based on this tweet from Monday afternoon saying that would not be a prudent decision. Somebody tell Shogun that read news >>

One of the reasons the idea of Luke Rockhold fighting Michael Bisping was so infecting was because they obviously share a genuine need to ram their fists into each other’s faces. These things aren’t hard to figure out. Rockhold sees doing bodily harm to Bisping as a sort of public service. It’s just that basic. And even before he turned Cung Le into gore, Bisping was needling the poor devil in setting the table for an eventual fight. This is just the kind of thing that Bisping does so well -- he read news >>

The very idea of a fight between Mark Hunt and Josh Barnett is enough to unfurl long involuntary strings of slobber from Brian Stann’s mouth. "You’ve got me drooling over that one," he told his fellow commentator Mike Goldberg at the proposition, just minutes after Hunt became the first man to dispatch Roy Nelson via knockout. If Hunt inspires that kind of reaction in chiseled men of character, imagine what he does to people who are easily awed? People like me, who watched the end sequence at le read news >>

Andrei Arlovksi, world heavyweight title contender? This seemed a ludicrous idea in March 2013, when Arlovski lost to former welterweight and future light heavyweight Anthony Johnson. Arlovski just didn't have what it took anymore. Not to compete at the highest level. It seemed far-fetched even yesterday morning. Arlovski was scheduled to face Antonio "Bigfoot" Silva on the UFC's Fight Pass service on Saturday night, and a Silva win seemed a foregone conclusion. Even UFC commentators Jon Anik an read news >>
