After an ugly breakup, the UFC seems to have mended fences with former light heavyweight champion Quinton "Rampage" Jackson. It's surprising, it's confusing, and it's almost certainly going to be entertaining. It remains unclear whether or not Jackson will be able to go back to the UFC freely. According to Jeff Sherwood and C.J. Tuttle of Sherdog.com, Bellator, a rival MMA promotion, claims it still has Jackson under contract. But assuming Jackson eventually is able to return to the UFC, who cou read news >>

The old school days of the early UFC gave us the gift of no weight classes. This meant that a giant sumo could fight a tiny karate fighter (and hey, that did happen). Combined with little care for skill level, you could have a person that has been fighting professionally for years taking on a guy that just stepped out of the gym for the first day, or read news >>

When Nick Diaz retired in March 2013 fresh from dropping a lopsided unanimous decision to then-UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre, he told reporters that the only fights to could coax him back into the cage would be a rematch against the Canadian or a superfight against Anderson Silva. At the time, Diaz's requests were largely scoffed at. This was a guy who'd lost two straight outings; he wasn't exactly in the position to barter for another big opportunity. But a funny thing happened in read news >>

Muhammed Lawal’s career and legacy are in a very difficult place. With his upcoming bout against Joe Vedepo at Bellator 131, the former Strikeforce champion has his chance to gain his sixth win in the Bellator MMA cage since joining the promotion in 2013. However, his legacy as an important name in mixed martial arts continues to be damaged because he is fighting what many would consider “lesser” opponents. Outside of the fight with Quinton “Rampage” Jackson at Bellator 120, years have passed si read news >>

How about that for bragging rights? I'm not sure what kind of cockamamie Russian promoter gave birth to community mixed martial arts (MMA), but this is exactly the kind of thing that barters sport for spectacle. I'll still watch because I'm morbid like that, but how do you go home and explain to your boys that you had plenty of back-up and still got KTFO? Thanks to Bloody Elbow for the find. read news >>

The UFC might have absolutely adored Renan Barao a couple of months ago, but he now finds himself on "the list." Not the good list, either. By withdrawing from UFC 177 following complications related to his weight cut, he has landed in Dana White's doghouse and out of title contention. Still, Barao remains one of the best fighters in the UFC's lower weight classes, and there is no reason to believe he won't be back with a vengeance in the near future. With a title rematch opposite T.J. Dillashaw read news >>
