Alistair Overeem stepped into the Octagon on Dec. 30, 2011 against Brock Lesnar as the best heavyweight fighter without any Octagon experience. He was seemingly big enough to contend with the likes of Lesnar and arguably swift enough to contend with the likes of then-champion Junior dos Santos. It took just over two minutes and one liver kick to prove the former heavyweight champion an unworthy foe. Lesnar went on to retire, and Overeem was set to take on dos Santos to finally put an end to all read news >>

Joe Soto stepped up in a huge way Saturday night. Friday before the weigh-ins, Soto was supposed to face Anthony Birchak on the undercard. Then, when Renan Barao was forced to pull out of the fight, Soto stepped up to face the champion, TJ Dillashaw, on little more than 24 hours' notice. Soto came absolutely ready to fight, and although Dillashaw won the first four rounds on all three judges' scorecards, it was by no means a blowout. In the fifth, Dillashaw landed a head kick to end a long combi read news >>

The last time Ireland's Cathal Pendred stepped into the Octagon, he put on a comeback performance for the ages.

The victory earned him a $50,000 postfight bonus. Pendred (14-2) won't wait too long for his encore. The UFC announced Friday he'll meet Russian Gasan Umalatov (15-3-1) in a welt read news >>

That's why former champions Randy Couture and BJ Penn are not only UFC legends, but mixed martial arts trailblazers. However, as prolific and memorable as their respective runs were, they will not be the last men to ever accomplish this staggering feat. As of today, MMA's evolution has developed a key pool of athletes capable of stringing together perenni read news >>

He is tough as nails and well-rounded as they come, but he has failed to break through to a title consideration with a performance against a fellow top lightweight. Where do read news >>
