I'm no Jen Selter, but I work out three or four times a week, I do some weights sessions with my personal trainer and I've entered the odd race. None of these things prepared me for an hour and a half with Joanne "JoJo" Calderwood and Aisling Daly, two of the toughest girls in sport. read news >>

Fighters break out all the time. Sometimes, they pan out; other times, they come up short. But whatever the outcome may be, the process of breaking out is not one full of sunshine and sugarplums. It is a tough road traveled—one that may very well push a fighter to the absolute brink. In order for a fighter to escape mediocrity and reap the benefits of full-blown mixed martial arts stardom, he must meet a variety of requirements, including skill, finishing ability, marketability and appetite for read news >>

Former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) welterweight titleholder Georges St. Pierre was recently featured in NY Times. Unfortunately, it wasn't for his exploits as one of the world's most gifted mixed martial arts (MMA) fighters. Instead, "Rush" -- alongside Hollywood icon Leonardo DiCaprio -- was photoed with longtime pal Jimmy Cournoyer, who just so happens to be the biggest pot dealer in New York City history. Kind of a strange association, considering St. Pierre's crusade to end drug use read news >>

The former UFC welterweight champ got a lot of ink -- including a picture posing with Hollywood star Leonard Dicaprio - in the world's top newspaper this weekend. Unfortunately it was because of his friendship with drug kingpin Jimmy Cournoyer. A public relations agent would tell any fighter that you just can't buy (bad) publicity like this. Multiple prominent mentions in a major New York Times feature plus a picture of your client hanging out with Hollywood superstar Leonard Dicaprio? That's th read news >>

Big John McCarthy last officiated a UFC bout in Nevada in 2007, a long time for one of MMA’s most revered referees to stay out of the "fight capital of the world." That will all change on Sept. 27, when McCarthy will join the rotation of officials at UFC 178 at the MGM Grand. Yahoo’s Kevin Iole reported that McCarthy was coming back in mid-August. McCarthy had been vocal about his distaste for the Nevada Athletic Commission and its former head, Keith Kizer. But with a new regime in place, and pl read news >>

There were times when it seemed like nobody wanted to be there. Ryan Bader succeeded only in spurts, Ovince Saint Preux finished looking lost and tired, and as the clock crept past 1 a.m. local time in Bangor, Maine, many spectators began to openly wonder if the UFC Fight Night 47 main event really needed five rounds. In the end, the better-prepared, better-rounded Bader asserted a kind of dominance, winning a unanimous decision (48-47, 49-46, 49-46) over the overmatched Saint Preux. With it, he read news >>

Lauren Murphy hit Sara McMann a whopping 193 times last night in Bangor, Maine, banging her about the head over and over again over the course of fifteen minutes. McMann, in return, scored less than one-third as many blows, a relatively paltry 64 punches landing cleanly on her opponent. On paper, with just those stats in hand, you'd expect an easy decision win. The blitzkrieg from Murphy was never-ending—in fact, she landed a strike every 4.66 seconds. But when the decision was read, McMann's na read news >>

Bad times for Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) black belts-turned mixed martial arts (MMA) practitioners as both winners failed their post-fight drug test in Nevada following their bouts earlier this month (July 2014). Perhaps jiu-jitsu also has a steroid problem? For grappling wunderkind Robert Drysdale, it appears that the man cannot keep his testosterone in check. Drysdale was expected to face Cody Donovan on Nov. 16, 2013 at UFC 167. However, Drysdale was refused a license by the Nevada State Athle read news >>

There were times last week when it felt like MMA’s love affair with Matt Brown was on the ropes. It’s no secret that Brown did some pretty dumb stuff leading up to his UFC on Fox 12 main event against Robbie Lawler. First, he put his foot in his mouth—again. Then, he committed professional fighting’s cardinal sin, missing weight for the biggest bout of his life. At Thursday’s open workouts, a careless quip Brown made about his own underdog status—telling a reporter he’d probably never be a betti read news >>
