I'll say one thing about Scott Coker, he certainly has a sense of humor. The former Strikeforce CEO, who was hired to replace the deposed Bjorn Rebney as President of Bellator MMA, is asking the mixed martial arts (MMA) community to give him 18 months to right the ship, in which time the tournament format will be scrapped, new talent will be signed, and exciting fights will be promoted. Coker, who helped discover the next generation of stars including Ronda Rousey, Daniel Cormier, and Luke Rockh read news >>

Former UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva knows a thing or two about cheaters. The man spent nearly half his UFC career fighting opponents who had failed some sort of screening for performance enhancing drugs during their career. Throughout his historic 16-0 UFC run from 2006 to 2012, Silva defeated four different men who would later fail their post-fight test. Taking a spin at 205 pounds, Silva quickly dispatched James Irvin in 2008. Irvin would go on to test positive for the illegal subs read news >>

Stories sell in individual sports. Without 20 other people to take a piece of the blame or share a piece of the glory in your athletic pursuit of choice, you need to have something about you that resonates.If you don't, you'll be forgotten in a blink.And that story should be something beyond acting a fool and being praised unyieldingly for it.It should be more than breaking down language barriers with the use of a finger (no, not that finger).It should be real. It should be palpable.People watch read news >>

It's a funny thing the way the mind works. Something belongs to one group in your head, another thing belongs to another, and they never cross despite sharing plenty of characteristics that could warrant it. One might look at a UFC champion like Anthony Pettis or Jose Aldo and have a comment on their inactivity, or perhaps on how that inactivity is robbing fans of huge fights in exciting divisions.

The next night on FS 1, for the prelims of UFC 178, what many considered the strongest TV main event on a prelim show to date, D read news >>

Through all the gossip and storylines, the thing that made UFC 178 so compelling was that it was going to tell the truth about people. It was where a lot of fun speculation was going to crystallize into something like fact.Dustin Poirier was either going to prove Conor McGregor a fraud, or act as exhibitive proof that he’s the real deal. Cat Zingano was either going to show up like a husk of her No. 1 contender self after the injuries and emotional tolls, or she was going to reinforce herself as read news >>
