Russell Peters knows his combat sports. He was an amateur boxer for nine years, is a longtime fan of the UFC and a close friend of several fighters, like Cung Le. So the well-known comedian has an informed opinion about the state of MMA. And his take isn't too positive. In an interview with Ariel Helwani on Monday's edition of The MMA Hour, Peters took the UFC to task for oversaturation, being a monopoly and underpaying fighters. "It really is hard to follow the sport and I'm a fan," Peters said read news >>

It hasn't been the easiest year to be an MMA fan. Between the UFC's precipitous financial decline, decimated fight cards and what seemed to be a bizarre crime ring made up exclusively of fringe fighters, 2014 was far from a banner year. But you know us—here at B/R MMA we look for the slightest glimmers of hope and hang on with both hands. Could this year have been better? Sure.

The news first came to light in a report from Fox Sports. The lyrics in question, which are potentially not sui read news >>

Matt Betzold is the latest fighter to take on a serious MMA career, but he's doing it with a chip on his shoulder and an extra leg to stand on. Well okay, maybe not three legged, but that was how he wanted to be known when he spoke to MMA Sentinel recently. And when you can really detach half your leg and carry it around with you, who am I to say you don't technically have three? Betzold is continuing his assault on the able bodied in MMA this coming February, when he debuts for Legacy FC. He's read news >>
