Quinton Jackson has signed a new deal with the UFC after three straight wins at Bellator, and one light heavyweight has offered himself to welcome "Rampage" back to the Octagon. Fabio Maldonado, who won his past four light heavyweight bouts in the UFC, most recently a TKO victory over Hans Stringer at UFC 179, is hoping to be the first to get in a cage with "Rampage" in 2015. "I think this fight is interesting not only for me, but for a lot of people. It’s an exciting match-up," Maldonado told M read news >>

"CM Punk? I don't know. Listening to him speak, when I heard the broadcast announcement I saw a man afraid. Like he signed up for something he didn't want to be. When the shin bone cracks the body or the elbow cracks or the heel cracks... It doesn't get much more real than that. Personally, I don't think he should be in this league just yet, but again, you bring asses to the seats, you bring eyeballs to the screen and we will give you a shot."

Saturday's news that Phil "CM Punk" Brooks signed a multifight contract with the Ultimate Fighting Championship sent the mixed martial arts world into a frenzy. It is understandable. Brooks has zero athletic experience outside of his tenure as a professional wrestler. Wrestling is a very tough business, and you need plenty of athleticism to do what professional wrestlers do on a daily basis. You'll never hear me disparage wrestlers for being "fake." I am a longtime professional wrestling fan. Ye read news >>

Hey guys, did you hear that the UFC signed former WWE champion CM Punk? Oh, you did? Well, I guess it was a pretty big deal...

In his recent piece, he implored U read news >>

But how on Earth did he convince UFC President Dana White to give him his shot in the world's largest fight promotion? While Brooks is most certainly an athlete, he's never competed professio read news >>
