Stepping back into the Octagon after more than a year off, Anderson Silva is back and with his return comes predictions of shocking devastation and artistic annihilation. A while back, I listed Anderson Silva vs. Nick Diaz as a “Superfight” and predicted an outcome of a Silva win, via stoppage. Like nearly everyone with a set of functioning eyes and a long history of following the combative sports, I used adages like “styles make fights,” and so on. Truth be told, I wasn’t wrong in that notion; read news >>

Former UFC bantamweight champion Dominick Cruz's triumphant return to the Octagon in September of 2014 was short-lived. While Cruz was able to dominate Takeya Mizugaki in a way few expected, he was robbed of the chance to build on the momentum. Despite returning to the division with authority, the Alliance MMA standout tore his ACL again, this time in his previously uninjured knee. In all likelihood, Cruz would be out up to another year, bringing the total amount of injury time in his career whe read news >>

In fact, that was the third straight knockout loss for the Croat, who also went belly up (and face down) against Frank Mir and Brendan Schaub, respectively. It was no surprise then, to hear him announce his retirement in late 2011, which lasted all of six months. Following a brief stint in kickboxing, "Cro Cop" returned to mixed martial arts (MMA) in 2012, where he now stands at 3-1 (30-11-2, 1 read news >>
