After every UFC event, fans clamor to the Internet to see which fighters' weekend loss resulted in a pink slip.

brass will make, occasionally the roster cuts come as a surprise. In our

With Nate Marquardt's recent release from the UFC,
testosterone-replacement therapy suddenly has become public enemy No. 1
in the MMA community.

Few fighters would do what Anthony Pettis did: skip a guaranteed title shot rather than risk an extended layoff.
When UFC lightweight champion Frankie Edgar and Gray Maynard fought to a draw at UFC 125 and prompted a third meeting, Pettis - the WEC's final lightweight champion - was forced to wait for his shot.
But was his decision to fight Clay Guida in the meantime a good one?

Take note, Paul Daley - perhaps all is not lost.
While UFC president Dana White in May said that Daley would never again
fight for the UFC, the fiery UFC boss has changed his mind before.

UFC 178 delivered several great performances, but only two fighters could walk away with bonuses. The exciting main card delivered, and the preliminary action chimed in too to make Dana White and Joe Silva's decision on bonuses more difficult. UFC flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson looked stellar in taking care of Chris Cariaso in the main event. His thorough performance was still not enough to nab him the extra $50,000 in bonus money. Also coming up short was Cat Zingano. She battled back fr read news >>
The UFC's most recent shows have been somewhat lacking, but with UFC 178, Dana White has once again put together a stacked card. In the five pay-per-view fights, there are nine Top 10 fighters, with the only exclusion being Eddie Alvarez, who is making his debut with the company. The most recent loss of the 10 featured fighters belongs to Donald Cerrone, but that came more than a year ago (August 2013), and he has since turned in four scintillating performances. Every fight features compelling c read news >>

UFC Fight Night: Jacare vs. Mousasi II is in the books, now it's time to see what's next for the main card fighters in our regular fantasy matchmaking piece. You know how good cards on paper frequently prove to be good shows? That's what happened last night at UFC Fight Night in Connectict. A main card filled with finishes and great action was capped off by a slick guillotine choke by Jacare Souza, who gets revenge on Gegard Mousasi from their first fight back in 2008. The other big fight result read news >>
Mookie Alexander plays fantasy matchmaker for the main card fighters from last night's UFC 177 in Sacramento, CA. Last night, Dana White told fans who weren't interested in attending or buying UFC 177 to "go to the movies". Personally? I had a full plate of Chinese food and watched some college football. So I spent much of this morning catching up on what I missed last night, and I must admit there were plenty of good finishes, a great performance by T.J. Dillashaw, a gutsy effort by Joe Soto, a read news >>
