We've reached a point with Ronda Rousey where one mild distraction could cause you to miss the entirety of another brilliant UFC bantamweight title defense. Such was the case for Rousey's jiu-jitsu coach, Rener Gracie, on Saturday night. By the time Gracie tucked away Rousey's sponsor banner and settled into the blue corner, challenger Cat Zingano was already on the floor, frantically slapping her hand onto Rousey's left ankle and signaling the end of UFC 184's main event. This time Rousey's thr read news >>

Benson Henderson doesn't think there's a point to Toothpickgate. The former UFC lightweight champion flashed a toothpick in his mouth during a fight with Brandon Thatch at UFC Fight Night 60 on Saturday in Broomfield, Colo. It wasn't the first time Henderson has done it, but the implication that he was competing in a fight with a sharp object in his mouth caused a stir on social media. Some people even called for the athletic commission to do something about it. "I don't think it's illegal," Hen read news >>

It has been 15 months since Brandon Thatch last stepped into the Octagon. The rising welterweight didn't want to wait even a second longer. When Stephen Thompson went down with an injury two weeks ago, Thatch feared that his return would be upended for a second time. "I would have fought my mother at that point," Thatch told Ariel Helwani on Monday's edition of The MMA Hour. "It didn't matter who. I just needed a fight." He got his wish. Thatch will meet former UFC lightweight champion Benson He read news >>

You aren’t going to like this. The price of expunging performance-enhancing drugs from mixed martial arts will be steep, and fans will need to shoulder at least some of the cost. Sorry, I know that stinks to hear. At this point, though, we all owe it to each other to start telling the difficult truth. In the wake of last week’s revelation that former middleweight champion Anderson Silva failed a pre-fight drug test for his UFC 183 bout against Nick Diaz, drastic action is necessary. No one can s read news >>

In his recent podcast, UFC commentator Joe Rogan explains that UFC president Dana White has a solution for the continuing eye-poke problem in the sport: simply deduct a point from fighters for every poke. The UFC's open-hand gloves have many benefits, especially for the grappling part of the game. But they do have one big drawback: the risk of poking an opponents eye is very high. We have seen it time and time again, a fighter waving his hands in his opponent's face to distract him or to defend read news >>

Not a bad idea ... Drug use Eye pokes have become a re-occurring problem in mixed martial arts (MMA). Aside from causing pain, discomfort and serious injury, eye pokes -- inadvertent or not -- often slow down the tempo of a fight and occasionally take a fighter out of his or her groove ... or even leads to a loss for the recipient. Unfortunately, there isn't a way to stop a problem that looks to have no end in sight. Some, like Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) color commentator Joe Rogan, th read news >>

It's no secret that Joe Rogan isn't a huge fan of the UFC's gloves. The UFC commentator has made his case against the gloves for playing a major role in the promotion's eye poke epidemic, but Rogan says his bosses believe the problem lies with the fighters. "There's a lot of people that have some really strong feelings about the shape of the [UFC] gloves right now and that they're contributing to eye pokes," Rogan said last week on his podcast. "I've had some recent conversations with [UFC presi read news >>

Taking a break from his Bellator MMA President duties, Scott Coker was in Arizona last evening (Sun., Feb. 1, 2015) for Super Bowl 49 to witness the biggest NFL game of the season.

At this point, the narrative on Donald Cerrone is that there is no narrative. Honestly, it’s getting to the point where there just isn’t a lot left to say about the guy. Cerrone did his “Cowboy” thing again on Sunday at UFC Fight Night 59, showing up on impossibly short notice to eke out a close but unanimous-decision win over his friend and frequent foe, Benson Henderson. "Ben is one hell of a guy," the ever-honest, ever-plainspoken Cerrone told UFC color commentator Joe Rogan in the cage when read news >>
