Life is a constant churn. There is a constant need to feed the machine. That's just the way it is, and it explains in large part why a lot of the world and its characteristics, both good and bad, can be distilled through MMA. That's what really makes MMA so cool. This is why MMA has such a strong, sustained need to identify new prospects. You need the fresh blood, almost literally. And we here at The Beaten Path admire and salute our combative overlords. Not only do we do that, but we also pay t read news >>

You could say Brett Johns is ready to make a change. “There’s not much to do in Wales,” he said. “ It’s farmland. You have to work for everything on the farm. From a young age, basically, I would shovel crap from one place to another. I cried my eyes out. It was absolutely horrific. I hated every minute of it.” Not that the Welshman is averse to work. No one who dislikes work doesn’t become the best bantamweight in Europe who’s not currently signed to the UFC. That’s what many consider Johns to read news >>

After a long, circuitous path to Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC), former female professional boxing sensation, Holly Holm, made her Octagon debut tonight (Sat., Feb. 28, 2015) against Raquel Pennington in the UFC 184 co-main event inside Staples Center in Los Angeles, California. It was worth the wait. Holm, who was noticeably nervous during the in-ring announcements, came out in a low stance, firing a left hand that missed. Pennington soon closed the distance, but Holm was able to break fr read news >>

Liam McGeary figured he might be pretty good at fighting after that one time he punched out his father's teeth. "I knocked one of his teeth out, a couple of them," McGeary said during a recent in-studio appearance on The MMA Hour. Mind you, this act of violence wasn't some sort of family squabble. McGeary's father is a former boxer, and the pair were sparring. "He was a boxer back in the day, he likes to have a good fight," the 32-year-old native of England said. "It was just sparring back when read news >>

Much of the MMA prospecting scene takes place outside UFC boundaries. After all, if you've made it to the big show, there's no longer any sport in finding you or touting your success. You've been found, and you've succeeded. Fine. But this line of thought discounts the fact that there are, indeed, prospects under the UFC umbrella. There are young fighters coming up all the time, climbing the ladder of the UFC after climbing those of other companies to get to the UFC. Some of these guys are well- read news >>

The finish line has been crossed. The "Prospects the UFC Should Sign" series is coming to a close. We left off with the flyweights, but now it's time for a whole new gender. The women of MMA have attained more recognition recently due to their inclusion in the UFC. Stars like Ronda Rousey have carved a path for the 135ers, and the 115ers were quick to follow into the company thanks to The Ultimate Fighter 20. The women's roster of the UFC could use some extra faces at this point, as depth is the read news >>

Oddsmakers see a mismatch in the offing here, with our partners at Odds Shark posting Diaz as nearly a 4-to-1 underdog. Even those numbers feel a bit conservative, and despite a last-minute promotional push, many spectators are preparing for a one-sided drubbing: Setting aside the obvious—that Diaz is a wel read news >>
