News broke that Silva had failed an out-of-competition drug test for anabolic steroid metabolites nearly a month before the bout. And Diaz popped for ma read news >>

If more fighters took the same kind of public stance on performance-enhancing drugs as UFC middleweight Tim Kennedy, the sport of mixed martial arts might be better off.

He is a special forces operator who still, 12 years after beginning his professional mixed martial arts career, still does sporadic "work" for the United States government. What kind of work, Ken read news >>

"Fedor [Emelianenko] comes out of retirement and I fight him at a catchweight of 100 kilos. I'd be down for that." Mostly, Kennedy has soured a bit on the sport of MMA. He still loves it, but right now he's unhappy with the current state of things -- from the multiple drug-test failures to incompete read news >>
