No matter what happens when Benson Henderson takes on Brandon Thatch in the main event of UFC Fight Night 60 on Saturday, we’re probably going to need an asterisk or two. Henderson vs. Thatch isn’t a fight that figures into anyone’s long-term plans, nor one we even could’ve anticipated as recently as a month ago. Make no mistake, there are clear stakes here for each guy, as Bendo moves up from lightweight to make a short-notice appearance at 170 pounds. It’s just that putting it all in perspecti read news >>

Certain things simply do not matter to Benson Henderson. Where the current landscape of mixed martial arts is filled with fighters who proclaim they will step in against any opponent whenever the opportunity is presented to them, the truth of the matter is that very few fighters actually put forth the actions to back up their claims. Competing at the highest level of MMA is a business plain and simple, yet there are certain athletes who are driven by something outside of the typical scope. Along read news >>

No matter the challenge, light heavyweight champion Jon Jones continues to retain his 205-pound crown. At UFC 182, Daniel Cormier put more pressure on Jones than anybody else has inside the Octagon. However, Jones was able to land the better shots even when Cormier was able to work inside, and the champion didn't allow a takedown until late in the final round. It was another great performance by Jones, who lost only one round on the scorecards. In picking up the decision win, Jones earned his ei read news >>

Bloody Elbow’s resident economist and former antitrust practitioner clarifies the issue of career length and exclusive contracts in the UFC lawsuit. Two weeks ago, I dissected the details of the lawsuit filed against the UFC (here and here) from the perspective of someone who used to provide expert witness support in these exact types of antitrust cases.

The moment the signing of Phillip Brooks (CM Punk) was announced, I suddenly had a new appreciation for Conor McGregor. I might not have agreed that he should get the next shot at Jose Aldo, but at least he has a true MMA background and is a proven competitor. I have nothing against Brooks for wanting to test himself in real competition. In fact, I find that highly admirable. If any rancor about his signing exists, it should be leveled at the UFC decision-makers, not Brooks. We all get why Brook read news >>

First, the obvious alarm bells with this new "groundbreaking" UFC-Reebok uniform deal. The days of Condom Depot types renting out ass-space on a fighter’s trunks is lamentably coming to an end. No more Dynamic Fasteners. No more Dude Wipes strewn menacingly across the groin. No more angry eyes staring out of Demian Maia’s backside. No more Dennis Hallman and his Smothered Boys. Soon it’ll be just be…unif…unif…I can barely bring myself to type it. Soon it’ll just be uniformity.And all of this for read news >>
