"Redemption means you make a change in your life and you try to do what is right, versus what you were doing, which was wrong." -- Ice T He was supposed to be "the one." When Alistair Overeem crumpled Brock Lesnar with a thunderous liver kick in the main event of UFC 141, which sent the pasty-faced brute back to the land of make believe, one of my fellow mixed martial arts (MMA) writers sent me a text message that read, "This division is in trouble."

Can't knock (out) the confidence. Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) middleweight titleholder, Chris Weidman, recently said if he doesn't get a stoppage victory over Vitor Belfort when they collide at UFC 181 on Dec. 6, 2014 in Las Vegas, Nevada, that he'd be "real disappointed."

Thales Leites wants to stand and bang in Tulsa. Primarily a jiu-jitsu black belt with 13 of his 23 professional victories coming by way of submission, Leites wants to prove a point against Francis Carmont. The middleweights are set to collide at the UFC Fight Night 49 card in Oklahoma, and the Nova Uniao fighter won’t go for takedowns on Saturday night.

But is banging it out with "The Phenom" the smartest thing to do? To the mixed martial arts (MMA) analyst, as well as any fan of the sport, hardcore or novice, the general consensus is that Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) middleweight champion Chris Weidman's best chance to retain his title against Vitor Belfort is to avoid a stand-up battle.

Machida was apparently so impressed with Weidman's offensive, he thinks the champ can stand and trade with one of the scariest strikers on the planet in Vitor Belfort. When asked if W read news >>

Gushing over celebrity fighters who test positive should be out. Getting rid of repeat offenders should be in. The story that never ends had its latest chapter on Wednesday when Kevin Casey and Robert Drysdale -- both who fought during the UFC's International Fight Week in early July -- failed the IQ version read news >>

Fighters do everything they can to stand out from the pack. Whether it's a highlight-reel finish or a war of attrition, they often exceed expectations to fulfill undiscovered potential. But in today's sport, when ratings and green paper with faces on it rule the blood and sweat-drenched canvas, making it big can only equate to headlining. Until a fighter commands that top billing, well, he hasn't made it. There are obviously some exceptions to this rule, but for the sake of the overwhelming tale read news >>
