"Santa Claus has the right idea. Only visit people once a year." --Victor Borge It's that time of year again, fight fans, and your pals here at MMAmania.com are wishing you a very Merry Christmas. And if you don't celebrate the birth of Jesus, can we at least get some love for a house full of presents? I have an interfaith family, which means the menorah is shining brightly on the mantle next to my blue spruce.

When Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) announced that it had signed former WWE superstar Phil Brooks, also known as CM Punk, to a contract to fight inside the Octagon, the reaction from the mixed martial arts (MMA) community was, well, mixed. Some welcomed the signing of a man with little-to-no experience fighting in MMA, while others openly defied the move. Now, UFC President Dana White recently offered his take on the reaction from the MMA community, saying that he understands the apprehens read news >>

ALBUQUERQUE, NM -- By now it's pretty clear the promotional angles for UFC 182 differ greatly from those of most other major UFC pay-per-views. The biggest culprit for that is the chain of events that took place in early August, when a scuffle between light heavyweight champion Jon Jones and Daniel Cormier tumbled off the stage in the MGM Grand, then continued in expletive-laden form as the two bickered across a live (but assumedly off-the-record) television signal for a majority of the afternoo read news >>

Here’s what we learned. What We'll Remember About This Fight We'll remember the disinterest read news >>

Anderson Silva says there are 'a lot of homosexuals in mixed martial arts,' but that doesn't bother him in the least. If one were to be honest, the sport of mixed martial arts doesn't have a fantastic track record when it comes to dealing with the LGBT community. Homophobic slurs are still common in MMA (I don't remember the last time a Michael Bisping fight didn't involve him throwing out a slur) and the treatment of the situation usually involves lame "it doesn't mean that when I use it" excus read news >>

So keep doing you, young man. You will find no shortage of fighters, much less top Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) featherweight contenders, who have an unkind thing to say about the sharp-tongued Conor McGregor. Among the many 145-pounders who have blasted him are Dustin Poirier, who doesn't feel he deserves all the media attention he gets. And Ricardo Lamas, who doesn't care much for the Irishman and his pocket watches. Even division kingpin, Jose Aldo, doesn't like the mention of Conor's read news >>

"We got into a lot of trouble," said Covington.
