Tell us you didn't see this one coming from 10 miles away ... Remember when it was "pretty impossible" to deny Rory MacDonald the next Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Welterweight title shot and that it would "absolutely, positively, without a doubt" take place in Canada? We do, mainly because company president Dana White made the now-hollow guarantee just two months ago moments after "Red King" (not a typo -- he has a new nickname, remember!) scored a third round (technical) knockout victo read news >>

Proponents of an immediate Hendricks rematch note that after 10 rou read news >>

Robbie Lawler is the new Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) welterweight kingpin, thanks to a split-decision win over Johny Hendricks at the UFC 181 pay-per-view (PPV) event back on Dec. 6, 2014 in Las Vegas, Nevada (watch it here). And "Ruthless" is not opposed to a rubber match, according to his conversation with Sherdog's "Beatdown Radio" show, in order to "figure this one out." "I'm very confident in my skills and think, if we fought again, I would win. Johny is a hell of a fighter, a hell read news >>

It sounds like the UFC's new welterweight champion has been listening a pretty good former one. On Monday UFC Hall of Famer Matt Hughes told Ariel Helwani that a trilogy bout between his former protege Robbie Lawler and former champ Johny Hendricks should take precedent over a rematch with No. 2 welterweight Rory MacDonald. In October MacDonald was promised the next crack at the title somewhere in his native Canada, but UFC president Dana White sounded noncommittal after watching Lawler snatch t read news >>

Early on, it'd be crazy to say that Johny Hendricks doesn't finish fights. "Bigg Rigg" gained a reputation as one of the most dangerous knockout artists in all of mixed martial arts (MMA), let alone the welterweight division, thanks to devastating finishes over Jon Fitch, Martin Kampmann, and Charlie Brenneman, just to name a few. And though former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) welterweight champion Matt Hughes recognizes Hendricks as a true finisher, he seems to think "Bigg Rigg" is now read news >>

So much for that Chris Weidman "super fight." Another action-packed weekend of fisticuffs has come and gone as UFC 181 blew the roof off the Mandalay Bay Events Center this past weekend (Sat., Dec. 6, 2014) in Las Vegas, Nevada. Plenty of fighters were left licking their wounds, including Gilbert Melendez, who was choked out by lightweight champion Anthony Pettis in the second round (video).

Bloody Elbow recaps the big fights from UFC 178 last night in Las Vegas. Here, we look at the main event between Johny Hendricks and Robbie Lawler.
