It's probably safe to say no one saw that coming. Riding a win streak of a couple of fights (19 non-Anthony Pettis fights if you want to get crazy with it) and looking like he'd never be far beyond nipping at the champ's heels, Benson Henderson walked into Tulsa, Oklahoma, and got himself knocked out. The culprit, Rafael dos Anjos, is a grappling ace who has developed the type of technique that accentuates his physical tools nicely and just happened to peak in the biggest fight of his life. Hend read news >>

It's a pretty safe bet that someone will get knocked out when Japanese legend Takanori Gomi takes on up-and-coming lightweight Myles Jury this September at Saitama Super Arena outside of Tokyo. The bout was first reported Wednesday night by Damon Martin of FoxSports.com. Gomi, The Fireball Kid, (35-9-1, 4-4 UFC) is a mainstay on UFC Japan cards. Though he is 35 years old and diminishing as a fighter, he still carries major punching power and a dogged drive to win, not to mention a titanic reputa read news >>

It's safe to say that anyone who's been around MMA since before 2012 or so (RIP TUF: Live, you were too beautiful for this world) was pretty happy to have Andrei Arlovski back in the Octagon. It had been an astounding six years since the former champion competed on the biggest stage in the game, and he was once something of a big deal. Granted he was at the top of the heap when the best heavyweights in the world were fighting in Japan, and there were only so many times you could watch him fight read news >>

Sound familiar? It should. It's safe to assume that Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) President Dana White won't hail Jon Jones' request to fight Daniel Cormier -- not Alexander Gustafsson -- as "bad ass" like when he picked Glover Teixeira over "The Mauler" rematch (read full details here). In fact, White "doesn't like" the latest demand from "Bones," who promised to give the Swede -- who pushed him to the brink in a controversial bout at UFC 165 in Sept. 2013 -- a second shot after the vict read news >>

It's safe to assume Jon's latest Instagram posts weren't made by one of his assistants. In the days leading up to his seventh consecutive title defense, most recently against Glover Teixeira at UFC 172, Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Light Heavyweight Champion Jon Jones had to fight off countless verbal attacks. And no, they weren't coming from "G-Tex." Chuck Liddell and Phil Davis never wasted an opportunity to spit fire in the direction of "Bones," with "Mr. Wonderful" going as far as sa read news >>

Not safe for work! Or lunch, for that matter. Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) 170-pound titleholder Johny Hendricks suffered a torn bicep during his UFC 171 welterweight championship win over Robbie Lawler back on March 15, 2014, at American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas. This is what it looked like before surgery: Photo courtesy of Ted Ehrhardt (via MMA Fighting). Hendricks went under the knife earlier this week (see a pic here) and got himself all patched up. Barring any unforeseen set read news >>

Ronda Rousey’s next challenger still remains unclear. It's safe to say Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) ring girl Arianny Celeste doesn't want to trade in her bathing suits for a pair of 4 oz. gloves. The former Playboy cover girl was recently quizzed on "The MMA Hour" about what has been going on between her and UFC women's bantamweight champion, Ronda Rousey, who said some disparaging things about the model. Celeste cleared the air on the rumors, confirming there is nothing between her and read news >>

Patrick Wyman argues in favor of Hector Lombard's conservative strategy against Jake Shields at UFC 171. Hector Lombard is a terrifying man, a fighter with jaw-dropping speed, ridiculous go-to-sleep power in his hands, and some of the slickest takedowns and high-amplitude throws in all of MMA. Unfortunately, he also owns a relatively limited gas tank, a problem that seems to afflict the vast majority of stocky, explosive fighters, from Jose Aldo to Jake Ellenberger to Robbie Lawler (Saturday's p read news >>

We live in a weird time in sports. For the first time ever, the world is almost as focused on the physical price athletes pay to compete as they are on what happens on the field of play. Long-term effects of contact sports have been a particular focus in this modern era, and while American football is taking the brunt of the criticism, there are certainly those who aren't shy about pointing out potential issues for combat athletes. It's a sentiment that's grown so much in recent years that the U read news >>
