After Dominick Cruz beat the snot out of Takeya Mizugaki at UFC 178, mixed martial arts (MMA) fans patiently waited for Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) to rubber stamp "The Dominator's" request to challenge TJ Dillashaw for the 135-pound title. Not just yet. Dillashaw was recently forced to go under the knife to repair chronic swelling in his elbow (bursitis) and will be sidelined for 1-2 months. The injury, as "The Viper" explained to MMA Fighting, came at the expense of Joe Soto back in A read news >>

I'm sure Dominick Cruz thought -- like most fans in the mixed martial arts (MMA) community -- that after he disposed of Urijah Faber, he would be done with Team Alpha Male. Or as he called them in the wake of his Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) return, "Team Alpha Fail." Not just yet. That's because Faber has passed the torch -- kinda, sorta -- to fellow Alpha Male TJ Dillashaw, who did what "The California Kid" could not, and stopped Renan Barao to claim the 135-pound strap. The same one C read news >>

Because some people can't seem to let go of the negativity in their life. Former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) bantamweight champion Dominick Cruz returned to the Octagon with a vengeance at last weekend's (Sat., Sept. 27, 2014) UFC 178 event in Las Vegas, Nevada, destroying Takeya Mizugaki in just over a minute of the very first round (full fight here).

Three years, 61 seconds, and now it's time to get the belt back. Because of how long he was out of action -- he missed almost three full years due to various injuries and setbacks while attempting to recover from those injuries -- it's easy to forget that Dominick Cruz was once one of the best pound-for-pound fighters in the world. In fact, he never lost the bantamweight championship he last successfully defended against current flyweight champion, Demetrious Johnson. He simply vacated it due to read news >>

From inside the eye of the hurricane swirling around UFC 177, TJ Dillashaw put on a command performance. Dillashaw had been UFC bantamweight champion for all of 98 days on Saturday, when he was forced into the no-win situation of defending his title against little-known replacement opponent Joe Soto. As anyone reading this story likely already knows, his scheduled rematch with former champ Renan Barao was scrapped a day earlier, when Barao failed to make weight. In essence, what was already a ba read news >>

Joe Soto may have come up short against bantamweight champ T.J. Dillashaw, but he's good enough to be ranked in the latest UFC rankings update. When you have a card like UFC 177, which was completely devoid of ranked fighters after the main event, the rankings don't really experience much in the way of change. For the most part, that was the case this week, but the biggest changes in the rankings involved Renan Barao, who didn't fight at all on Saturday, and Joe Soto, who was Barao's replacement read news >>

Bloody Elbow recaps the two big fights from UFC 175 last night in Las Vegas. Here, we look at the main event title fight between TJ Dillashaw and Joe Soto.
