It’s strange to think of UFC 179 as a must-win situation for Phil Davis. Theoretically, Davis is still in the thick of his fighting prime. He’s a respectable 12-2-1 and continues to hang around the UFC’s light heavyweight Top 10.

Nonetheless, Davis’ Saturday showdown with Glover Teixeira feels steeped in read news >>

Demetrious Johnson takes another one for the team Saturday night. Since becoming the UFC’s inaugural flyweight champion two years ago, Johnson has been nothing short of a workhorse for the world’s largest MMA company. His main event bout against Chris Cariaso at UFC 178 this weekend will mark his fifth defense of the 125-pound title and his third fight in roughly nine months. For obvious reasons, it also shapes up as something of a no-win situation for the 28-year-old AMC Pankration fighter. Thi read news >>

"Look at the situation we're in right now. I think what Bellator is doing right now is great, cutting back on the amount of shows so they can put out quality events. Now, what [passes] as a quality event these days, [one good fight] here and there. Like, put out quality. Quality is what matters, not quantity. I feel like [MMA] has gotten to the point where it's just watered down. It's kind of like when you add more water to Kool-Aid and make you it more un-concentrated.

He didn't want to give Renan Barao a rematch at UFC 177 just three months after kicking Barao's tail all over the Octagon. He still took the fight.
