So Alistair Overeem says he's down to only 210 lbs now... Right. For some weird reason, people love talking about Alistair Overeem's weight. So much so that he receives today's Tweet of the Day honors for getting the internet in a frenzy and reigniting all the talk about him slimming down -- all with a single typo tweet. Donald Cerrone and the guys at Jackson's had a game of frisbee, and when asked about his weight, here's what Overeem replied: @mattiefranco25 @Cowboycerrone @TimKennedyMMA 210lb read news >>

Pushing through long odds has to get old. It’s a great story for everyone else, but for the person actually doing it, the struggle to succeed in a driving headwind is not a feel-good narrative. It’s decidedly feel-bad, actually. But if you can get up on top of that headwind for even a second, well, that’s got to be pretty doggone sweet. The most tumultuous stretch of Rick Glenn’s career—maybe his entire life—began late last fall when, barely a month away from the date, he announced he would not read news >>

If you were looking for a reason to wake up at 6:30 a.m. ET to watch the preliminary card for the UFC's latest return to Macau, China, on Saturday, well, I've got nothing for you. That's a little early in the morning when all you have to look forward to is Danny Mitchell vs. Wang Sai in a preliminary "main event." The idea of a main event for a preliminary card is one of the dumbest things the UFC has created in recent years, and it is even sillier when it features two men named Danny Mitchell a read news >>

There's a reason they call Amanda Bell "The Lady Killer." Armbars only work if you can get your opponent to the floor. That was a lesson Marina Shafir learned on Sunday night (Aug. 10, 2014) when she was knocked out by Amanda Bell in the first round of their featherweight fight at the Lights Out Promotion (LOP) "Chaos at the Casino 5" pro mixed martial arts (MMA) event in Inglewood, California. Check out the video below: Shafir moves to 1-1 in defeat, while Bell improves to 2-2 with the victory. read news >>

UFC heavyweight Mark Hunt reveals the reason as to why he publicly stated that he was fired from the UFC on twitter. Apparently when Mark Hunt is hungry, he mistakenly assumes he is an unemployed man. The longtime heavyweight competitor recently took to twitter to reveal that he was "unemployed," which was unsettling considering he was expected to headline the upcoming UFC Fight Night show in Saitama, Japan against Roy Nelson. Not my choice guys but going from being exited at the prospects of th read news >>

Because there is no reason to settle for a quick finish when "DC" can punish "Bones" for five rounds. At UFC 165 last September, Alexander Gustafsson took Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Light Heavyweight Champion Jon Jones into deep waters, forcing the champ to go a full 25 minutes inside the cage and leaving him looking worse for wear. As a result, "Bones" was forced to take a trip to the hospital, as did "The Mauler." And at UFC 178 on Sept. 27, 2014, Daniel Cormier hopes that Jones can read news >>

He's the No. 1 Contender All TRT discussions aside, Vitor Belfort has been on a colossal tear as of late—leaving his last three opponents with foggy memories of blitzing hand strikes and concussive head kicks. He first took out the UFC's No. 8-ranked middleweight Michael Bisping in the second round of their fight. He then went after the division's fifth-ranked fighter in Luke Rockhold before placing him on the bad end of a highlight-reel knockout. Next came a light heavyweight matchup with Dan H read news >>

Gina Carano isn't a fighter. She hasn't been a fighter since 2010. And she lost her last fight. If you're like me, your last memory of Gina Carano as a mixed martial artist was hoping referee Josh Rosenthal would have the heart to stop Cris Cyborg from beating her half to death. This was five years ago, or nearly so, and Carano was undefeated going into the fight. She was considered an underdog to Justino (then Santos), but only slightly so. That seems so very silly now, doesn't it? Hindsight is read news >>
