With the upper tier of the UFC's bantamweight division currently in shambles due to injuries, compelling fights for champion T.J. Dillashaw are hard to find. Regrettably for Dillashaw, the most marketable match-up out there for him right now is probably also one he'd be reluctant to accept: a teammate vs. teammate, student vs. teacher battle against Team Alpha Male captain and stablemate Urijah Faber. And though Dillashaw is officially slated to rematch Renan Barao at UFC 186, he revealed on Tue read news >>

Could Alexander Gustafsson secure the rematch? Even when Jon Jones isn't directly involved, he looms like Bald Mountain over just about everything that happens in the UFC these days, especially in the light heavyweight division. So when Gustafsson laments answering the same questions about Jones over and over again, you nod your head in sympathy, if not complete agreement. After all, it's a compliment. Back in 2013, Gustafsson gave Jones a better fight than anyone ever had. He took the champ fiv read news >>

Johnson's final salvo, a series of ferocious right hands t read news >>

When Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) matchmakers need a real fighter, they know who to call. That's probably why Nick Diaz got the nod for Anderson Silva's return fight at the upcoming UFC 183 pay-per-view (PPV) event, which takes place a week from Saturday (Jan. 31, 2015) inside MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. Sure, Diaz isn't really a middleweight, but at least he won't dump and hump "The Spider" for five rounds in hopes of grinding out a judges' decision. The Stockton slugge read news >>

When Nick Diaz retired from mixed martial arts -- both the first time and second time -- he pledged only to return to the sport for one of three things: a fight against Georges St-Pierre, a fight against Anderson Silva, or a fight with a UFC title on the line. As luck would have it, all three of Diaz's demands would eventually be answered. In March 2013, Diaz allowed the UFC welterweight strap to slip through his fingers, wilting under a deluge of takedowns from then-champion St-Pierre. Now Diaz read news >>

"He was actually a real good athlete, a real good boxer. He wanted to spar. The sparring happened -- it was back and forth -- but one day, he got a little touchy, a little cocky. When he did that, the sparring got live. And when it got live, we went at it to try to take each other's head off. But, I got the best in the end of him and I hit him with a shot to the nose. As he covered up, I hit him to the body that dropped him. A technical knockout if you want to call it. He got humbled that day, d read news >>

Karim Zidan delves into the real winners and losers of the UFC's first fight card of 2015. After months of taunts, brawls, mean mugs, and bold proclamations, UFC light-heavyweight champion Jon Jones and title challenger Daniel Cormier took part in a relatively one-sided five-round affair at UFC 182, proving once again that hyperbole does not guarantee ‘Fight of the Year' candidates.
