If you work in a particularly horrid office environment, you may be familiar with the "White Elephant Christmas" tradition. The basics are simple—everyone brings gifts and puts them in a giant pile. You draw a number and pick in order. Everyone brings something. Everyone leaves with something. Simple, right? Nice even. But there's a twist. There's always a twist. Those who follow you in line get the chance to "steal" your gift rather than pick their own. This leads, inevitably, to people stealin read news >>

This week on his podcast with FOX Sports Brown made it clear that he wasn't personally offended by CM Punk joining the UFC roster, but that it did catch him off guard. "I thought the sport, the UFC, itself, was beyond that now," Brown said. "Bellator doing this, I could understand. I could see other or read news >>

Overall, his take on the situation seemed pretty focused on the positive, business end of things. He told reporters that "I don't have no problem with it. If you bring something with you to the table, you get a seat." But that doesn't mean that he sounded 100% comfortable with the idea of letting an "an amateur come in and do it in the pro game." read news >>

"CM Punk? I don't know. Listening to him speak, when I heard the broadcast announcement I saw a man afraid. Like he signed up for something he didn't want to be. When the shin bone cracks the body or the elbow cracks or the heel cracks... It doesn't get much more real than that. Personally, I don't think he should be in this league just yet, but again, you bring asses to the seats, you bring eyeballs to the screen and we will give you a shot."

UFC featherweight contender Conor McGregor seems a bit torn over the promotion's decision to allow a retired professional wrestler with no competitive experience whatsoever to compete alongside him in the sport's premier organization. McGregor understands the appeal of wrangling the elusive and dreaded 'casual fan,' but would have preferred for 36-year-old CM Punk to first prove himself elsewhere. "I don't have no problem with it," McGregor told Severe MMA. "If you bring something with you to th read news >>

Fresh off a dominant, fifth-round submission victory over Cub Swanson in Austin on Nov. 22, Edgar believes he's earned another shot at Aldo.

Before you dismiss Clay Guida, may I remind you "The Carpenter" holds wins over a UFC lightweight champion (Anthony Pettis), a PRIDE FC lightweight champion (Takanori Gomi), and even a Strikeforce lightweight champion (Josh Thomson). Top contenders Rafael dos Anjos and Nate Diaz? Yep, he beat them, too. Whether you like his style or not, Guida (31-15) is a tough out any way you slice it.
