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 >>

Last year, around autumn, Roger Huerta began playing around with the idea of a comeback. This was a very different Roger Huerta from the man who mixed martial arts devotees remember being soccer kicked into oblivion at a 10,000-seat stadium in Kuala Lumpur; the same man who'd once graced the cover or Sports Illustrated and had been Dana White's own "dream come true," before the pressures of celebrity collapsed upon the fighter and led him down a path of diligent self-sabotage. That man, Huerta r read news >>

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. While indicated the talks were going in a positive direction, he also said things weren't exactly simple. "It's complicated," White said. "It's going very positive, but it's complicated.

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 >>
