See who the Bloody Elbow staff is picking to win every fight on tomorrow night's UFC Fight Night: Machida vs. Dollaway event in Barueri, Brazil. Lyoto Machida vs. C.B. Dollaway Mookie Alexander: This isn't just some big middleweight fight, this is for the lineal TUF Brazil 1 belt held by Dollaway, and Machida is gunning for that. Dollaway has good enough takedowns to actually get Machida down, but he's really not the guy I'd bet on to hold him there. Lyoto's striking, timing, ability to cover di read news >>

It's a marathon, not a sprint. And we are all to be commended for breaking the tape of the 2014 UFC event season. With 45 events, it was long and, at times, tedious. But in the end, it was also very rewarding. So at the end of the year, and with the endorphins flowing, let us make our main card picks one more time before the calendar flips. Is UFC Fight Night 58, going down Saturday from Brazil, an outstanding card? Nah. But it's a fine stocking stuffer for the year that was. Come along, won't y read news >>

See who the Bloody Elbow staff is picking to win each fight on the UFC on Fox 13 card tomorrow night in Phoenix, Arizona. Junior dos Santos vs. Stipe Miocic Mookie Alexander: The way to beat Junior dos Santos (aside from "haha heavyweights with small gloves hit hard and make people fall") is to wear him down and be the better boxer. That basically leaves you with Cain Velasquez and Daniel Cormier, who currently isn't a heavyweight. Miocic is a solid all-around fighter, but he's not a takedown ma read news >>

Who will become the first ever UFC women's strawweight champion? Bloody Elbow's staff predicts that as well as the rest of the TUF 20 Finale card set for December 12th in Las Vegas. Carla Esparza vs. Rose Namajunas Anton Tabuena: I've never watched a full season of TUF, ever... except for this one. It still has a tremendous amount of useless ‘house drama', but the deep talent pool and the title on the line made the whole tournament much more important, hence making it a little more bearable for read news >>

The Bloody Elbow staff picks all of the fights coming up on tomorrow night's UFC 181: Hendricks vs. Lawler 2 card in Las Vegas, Nevada. Johny Hendricks vs. Robbie Lawler Mookie Alexander: I picked Robbie Lawler to win the first fight more on a hope than me thinking he'd actually win, and he almost won it. Hell, I even said in July on BE Radio prior to the Matt Brown fight that Robbie Lawler was the best welterweight in the world and would beat Hendricks in a rematch. So I can't back out of that read news >>

Bloody Elbow's literary gunslinger Eugene S. Robinson lends his "one"-of-a-"kind" perspective to self-flagellation, bitter recrimination and an excoriating examination of the "what the hell am I even doing here?" variety during an evening when his picks were all wrong, all of the time, across sports, and organizations, up to and including, well, everything. read news >>

Check out who the Bloody Elbow staff is predicting to win each fight on tomorrow night's UFC Fight Night: Edgar vs. Swanson in Austin, Texas. Frankie Edgar vs. Cub Swanson Mookie Alexander: Hard to get a gauge on Edgar at FW when his one fight against a clear elite 145er ended in a loss to Aldo almost two years ago. Dominating BJ Penn's passive twin and outpointing Charles Oliveira don't do much for me, but skillwise this is probably Edgar's fight to lose. His boxing is more technical than Swans read news >>

Former longtime UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre has been on a self-imposed hiatus from the sport for nearly a full year, but he's still unsure of whether a return to the Octagon is happening. In an interview with MMA Canada on Saturday, "Rush" also makes a prediction for Johny Hendricks vs. Robbie Lawler II at UFC 181 next month (transcription per MMA Fighting). I don't know if I will go back to competition. That's why I didn't call it 'a retirement,' I called it 'a break' because I read news >>

See who the Bloody Elbow staff is picking for the main card bouts on tomorrow night's Bellator 131: Ortiz vs. Bonnar event in San Diego, CA. Tito Ortiz vs. Stephan Bonnar Mookie Alexander: Wild scenes for this one. Bonnar comes out and looks dominant against Tito, whose brittle body betrays him once more. Stephan's lack of finishing abilities drags this on for two more rounds when suddenly -- GASP! - Justin McCully switches sides! That traitor! McCully comes in with a steel chair and starts bash read news >>
