For all of the talk of the UFC featherweight division and its seemingly uncrowned (media) king Conor McGregor, there's surprisingly little of it coming from or headed towards Frankie Edgar. The top featherweight contender and former lightweight champion has one of the most important fights for the division's future on Saturday when he takes on Cub Swanson at UFC Fight Night 57 in Austin, Texas. Yet, most of the talk is centered on Swanson or McGregor or simply other top contenders. As far as Edg read news >>

Former Strikeforce middleweight champion Luke Rockhold, now four-fights into his Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) career, is going to be sticking around for awhile, after putting pen to paper for a new eight-fight deal under the ZUFFA banner. So ... about that title shot. Rockhold (13-2) has rattled off three straight wins -- along with three consecutive finishes -- since a debut loss to Vitor Belfort last year in Brazil.

Cub Swanson is under the impression that he's getting a 145-pound title shot with a win over Frankie Edgar this weekend at UFC Fight Night 57 (results here).

MEXICO CITY -- Despite being the higher ranked and more seasoned fighter, Ricardo Lamas entered his UFC 180 featherweight match-up as the betting underdog to Dennis Bermudez. While those odds appear somewhat strange in retrospect, especially considering it took Lamas a little over three minutes to bring Bermudez's vaunted seven-fight win streak to a screeching halt, Lamas now wants to repeat the favor against the conductor of division's boldest hype train. "I want to get back to the title shot," read news >>

Phan came out, stood at a horrible distance for the fight and didn't move his head at all, allowing Richman to tee off with read news >>
