Rewind your mind to January 1, 2014. Now answer who are the top 10 lightweights in the world. No, scratch that—who are the top 20 lightweights in the world? The majority of people wouldn't include Will Brooks on that list. Fast forward 11 months, and suddenly he has revealed himself to be one of the elite lightweights regardless of promotion. His Bellator 131 victory on Saturday cemented Brooks as an elite lightweight. He debuted for Bellator in 2013. He won his first bout and then was knocked o read news >>

One of the reasons the idea of Luke Rockhold fighting Michael Bisping was so infecting was because they obviously share a genuine need to ram their fists into each other’s faces. These things aren’t hard to figure out. Rockhold sees doing bodily harm to Bisping as a sort of public service. It’s just that basic. And even before he turned Cung Le into gore, Bisping was needling the poor devil in setting the table for an eventual fight. This is just the kind of thing that Bisping does so well -- he read news >>

Despite its booming popularity and obvious presence in the sport, women's mixed martial arts (MMA) isn't everyone's cup of tea. Whether it's former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) welterweight champion, Georges St-Pierre, admitting he doesn't like to watch women hit each other, or Mark Bocek criticizing UFC for promoting them over seasoned male fighters, there are many who still can't get into that side of the sport. Joining his fellow Canadians is Rory MacDonald, who revealed during his gu read news >>

Revenge is on the mind of Chad "Money" Mendes as he heads into his rematch with UFC featherweight champion Jose Aldo on Saturday.

Since the crushing defeat, Mendes has won five straight fights scoring stoppages in all read news >>

"I'm not gonna call myself the Brazilian Killer, but if somebody wants to name me the Brazilian Killer, you're more than welcome. I'm just staying patient, working on different things. No need to do anything crazy on my training. I just stay focused on what I have to do. I look at [the Johnson loss] as a minor setback, but I think a win down in Rio will put me right back in the title race." Top Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) light heavyweight contender, Phil Davis, tells MMA Fighting he kn read news >>

Former longtime UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre has enjoyed a nearly yearlong hiatus from the Octagon, so fight fans are beginning to ponder whether or not the French Canadian superstar will ever be back.

He has no plans right now. We're supposed read news >>

It's a funny thing the way the mind works. Something belongs to one group in your head, another thing belongs to another, and they never cross despite sharing plenty of characteristics that could warrant it. One might look at a UFC champion like Anthony Pettis or Jose Aldo and have a comment on their inactivity, or perhaps on how that inactivity is robbing fans of huge fights in exciting divisions. Maybe they'd make a point about how that inactivity is also crippling the respective primes of two read news >>

Chris "Kamikaze" Cariaso doesn't pay any mind to the odds going into a fight. It would be impossible for the 33-year-old Californian to escape the fact he's a heavy underdog going into his flyweight title tilt with champion Demetrious Johnson at UFC 178, but Cariaso knows those particular elements have nothing to do with what happens in the Octagon. He's been slinging leather for the better part of a decade, and if a lengthy career in mixed martial arts has taught him anything, it's that nothing read news >>
