Another Benson Henderson fight, another judging controversy. Only this time one had nothing to do with the other. Howard Hughes, not the dead tycoon but an actual breathing judge on Saturday’s first card in Macau, was made to believe he wasn’t a very good arbiter just two fights into UFC Fight Night 48. The UFC, acting as its own commission overseas, relieved Hughes of his duties for incompetence in judging the Royston Wee-Yao Zhikui and Milana Dudieva-Elizabeth Phillips’ bouts. This became the read news >>

Think UFC can't influence judging? Think again. If you are not happy with the officiating, simply remove the offending judge (or judges). That's the kind of power you have as a promoter when you travel abroad and are not subject to the rules and regulations of a local athletic commission. Such is the case with UFC Fight Night 48, which took place last Saturday (Aug. 23, 2014) in Macau, China (results here). With no sanctioning body to oversee the fights, UFC acted as its own commission, which me read news >>

Lauren Murphy hit Sara McMann a whopping 193 times last night in Bangor, Maine, banging her about the head over and over again over the course of fifteen minutes. McMann, in return, scored less than one-third as many blows, a relatively paltry 64 punches landing cleanly on her opponent. On paper, with just those stats in hand, you'd expect an easy decision win. The blitzkrieg from Murphy was never-ending—in fact, she landed a strike every 4.66 seconds. But when the decision was read, McMann's na read news >>

But judging by these videos, that's a precaution that may have already gone out the window. Former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) middleweight champion Anderson Silva now has the green light to begin sparring, nearly six months after shattering his shin against Chris Weidman at the UFC 168 pay-per-view (PPV) event last December in Las Vegas, Nevada. Dr. Marcio Tannure talks to MMA Fighting: "He was already cleared by his doctors in the United States, but he likes to hear my opinion because read news >>

Controversy is brewing in the wake of a bad judging call in the fight between Ross Pearson and Diego Sanchez, and it looks like it may be spreading to the card as a whole. If there was anything notable, pre-fight night, about the UFC's recent New Mexico card, it was how heavily the card featured Jackson's MMA talent. Four fighters from the MMA supercamp were featured on the main card three of them in the top three bouts. It makes sense, Albuquerque is home turf for Jackson-Winklejohn fighters, a read news >>
