"Rumble" vs."Reem" could be a striker's delight, if it ever sees the light of day. When Alistair Overeem split from the Blackzilians mixed martial arts (MMA) camp last year, his former teammates started voicing their displeasure at the bad habits he displayed during his time at the Florida-based camp. From deliberately hurting sparring partners, to refusing to train with the actual team, Overeem wasn't exactly described as the ideal teammate by some of his past training partners. Alistair, howev read news >>

If you were building the perfect mixed martial arts striker, he'd have a crisp jab, devastating leg kicks and the capacity for violence on a previously unthinkable scale. He'd throw his strikes, not one at a time as we see so often in the cage, but in dizzying combination. His fearsome visage would make you think, "Hey, he'd make an excellent Dread Pirate Roberts." He'd have the counter wrestling to stand on his feet until he was bored enough to try the mat and the jiu-jitsu to make opponents re read news >>

Melvin Manhoef hasn't given up on his UFC dream just yet.

Which will be his demise when he steps into the Octagon to face Renan Barao at UFC 173, according to the bantamweight champion. "I believe T.J. [Dillashaw] thinks he is a striker now, and he isn't. I think he will mess up and make mistakes in this fight, and this will present the chance for me to finish him. I'm very calm and ready for this fight, and I believe I will win this fight because I'm the better fighter." Under the tutelage of Duane Ludwig, T.J.

T.J. Dillashaw has certainly made improvements to his striking skill set over the past two years, but apparently Renan Barao isn't all too impressed. The Ultimate Fighter 14 alum came into the UFC with strong wrestling skills and a well of athleticism that propelled him to victories in his first two showings inside the Octagon. While his talents were obvious, the 28-year-old's attack was borderline one-dimensional, and he knew his arsenal of weapons would have to expand if he were ever going to read news >>

Well, that's a mighty bold statement. Aside from packing a punch, Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) welterweight champion, Johny Hendricks, has a pretty good chin, too.
