See the full fight between Nick Diaz and B.J. Penn from October 29th, 2011 at UFC 137 in Las Vegas, Nevada. By the time Nick Diaz steps into the cage on January 31st, 2015, it will have been roughly 3 1/4 years since his last win. Of course, his most fervent supporters will argue "Diaz 1, 2, and 5" for his loss to Carlos Condit and "Diaz, 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5" in his 50-45 x3 defeat to Georges St-Pierre, but the results still stand. Nick had made his UFC return in 2011 after Zuffa purchased Strikef read news >>

It was the last time Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) welterweight Nick Diaz tasted victory, but it was oh-so-sweet. That's because the UFC 183 headliner was able to beat the stuffing out of fading legend BJ Penn at UFC 137 back in 2011 (recap). After two consecutive losses and an extended vacation, Diaz will return to the cage next month in Las Vegas, Nevada, to try to get his groove back -- at middleweight -- against the surgically-repaired Anderson Silva. Win, lose, or draw, expect firewo read news >>

B.J. Penn has retired from MMA after a third loss to Frankie Edgar earlier this year, but he could return to competition in a different sport.

This is escalating pretty quickly. After former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) lightweight and welterweight champion, B.J. Penn, declared he would never hire Mike Dolce for anything ever again, the famed nutrition expert didn't waste time in firing back his response. According to Dolce, the fact that Penn didn't have a good performance in his trilogy fight against Frankie Edgar at The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 19 Finale a few months back, didn't have anything to do with his weight-cut down to read news >>

Conor McGregor is the rising star of the featherweight division, and he is generating the heat with casual fans that is needed for a fighter to become a star. The lighter weight classes have been missing that star power since BJ Penn left the scene. Penn was an enigma who captivated fans ever since his debut. He began headlining shows prior to the post-TUF era. His first headlining bout in the new era of the UFC came against rival Matt Hughes, but then he dropped back to 155 pounds. He proved th read news >>

The finger pointing continues. Following what looks to be the final bout of a Hall of Fame career, everyone who contributed to B.J. Penn's bizarre performance against Frankie Edgar in July has looked to distance themselves as much as possible. While Penn's altered striking style was blamed (perhaps unjustly so) on longtime trainer Jason Parillo, Penn has been critical of nutritionist Mike Dolce. After saying in August that he regretted ever hiring Dolce to help make the drop to featherweight, Pe read news >>
