That's because "Showtime" was flagged for a potential hand injury after strangling "El Nino" in "Sin City," which got the mixed martial arts (MMA) universe all squirrely. Likely because Pettis has a history of being hurt and missing significant time read news >>

Days after UFC middleweight champion Chris Weidman questioned the Nevada State Athletic Commission for not drug testing Vitor Belfort leading up to their UFC 184 bout, "The Phenom" has submitted to a blood and urine sample.

Sounds like Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) is making good on its promise. UFC 184 headliner Vitor Belfort was hit with a surprise drug test earlier this week in Florida, when the commission sent collectors to show up unannounced and ask for samples of both blood and urine. "The Phenom," according to a report from Yahoo! Sports, was cooperative and complied with both requests. Now all we can do is wait. The results will be made available in approximately two weeks, and Belfort is expecte read news >>

Only a few months after vowing to test Vitor until "the day you retire," the NSAC has done anything but that, as Weidman and Belfort get set to face off at UFC 184. Trying to make sense out of athletic commission regulations and punishments can be a bit of a rabbit hole. The more you chase after truth and accuracy the more you get caught up in a warren of half truths and almost punishments; guidelines bend or stand firm, seemingly at random and with an ease that, at times, can be troubling.

Hey, remember when Vitor Belfort promised the folks at the Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) -- at their insistence -- that he would not fight anywhere outside of "Sin City" until he first competed in Las Vegas and passed all mandatory drug tests? LOL. The commission has not -- and likely will not -- be testing "The Phenom" ahead of his Chris Weidman title fight, despite failing a NSAC-mandated drug test earlier this year, because Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) intends to bring Belfo read news >>

Nevada State Athletic Commission Executive Director Bob Bennett feels the chances are "very slim" that the governing body would overrule a Yoel Romero Round 3 TKO over Tim Kennedy at UFC 178—in the event an appeal is filed by Kennedy's camp. Bennett told MMA Fighting that he would be surprised to see the result of the entertaining middleweight scrap overturned. "They're very seldom overruled," Bennett told Shaun Al-Shatti. "The likelihood of an appeal being overturned is very slim. I'm not going read news >>

Nothing like a little optimism. Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) middleweight Tim Kennedy, who suffered a technical knockout loss to Yoel Romero at the UFC 178: "Johnson vs. Cariaso" pay-per-view (PPV) event last Sat. night (Sept. 27, 2014) in Las Vegas (full results here), is unlikely to have the decision overturned to a "no contest."

Leading Nevada official Bob Bennett informed MMAFighitng.com that scenarios such as Kennedy-Romero are “seldom overruled.” It appears Tim Kennedy is unlikely to achieve much following his appeal of Yoel Romero's win on the UFC 178 main card, according to the Nevada State Athletic Commission. The appeal stems from a bizarre incident that took place ahead of the third and final round of action in their feature fight on Saturday night. After Kennedy had begun to mount a comeback in the second round read news >>
