UFC middleweight champion Chris Weidman made his opinion clear regarding where he believes Michael Bisping stands in the UFC’s 185lb. division.

The UFC returns to pay-per-view this weekend with UFC 177. Live from Sacramento, California, the card boasts a title fight in the main event slot between TJ Dillashaw and Renan Barao. The card in general is full of prospects, which corresponds with its lack of star power. It's a reason why fans are not jumping at the opportunity to cough up money for the event.
That said, this is all about the prelims. I had a fantastic weekend with the double header, as Macau and Tulsa provided me with an aweso read news >>
Very rarely does a fight come together via honest divisional math that has as much heat and validity as Jon Jones versus Daniel Cormier.
That isn’t to say that there haven’t been some very lucrative bad-blood matches in the UFC to date. The company delivered the first bout between Ken Shamrock and Tito Ortiz way back at UFC 40 in addition to giving us Quinton “Rampage” Jackson versus Rashad Evans at UFC 114.
But neither one of those bouts had the level of legitimacy of Jones-Cormier. For his fir read news >>
TJ Dillashaw defends his title against Renan Barao at UFC 177 in Sacramento, California. Back to the grind. What are the chances Dana White pulls a judge from his duties on American soil? Slim. Especially since even Dana has admitted to he went over the line.
Still, relieving a judge of his/her duties is not like punching a guy who just elbowed you in the back of the head or something. It requires foresight, and cunning. Dana didn't just act irresponsibly, and passionately. He deliberated those read news >>
Pushing through long odds has to get old. It’s a great story for everyone else, but for the person actually doing it, the struggle to succeed in a driving headwind is not a feel-good narrative. It’s decidedly feel-bad, actually. But if you can get up on top of that headwind for even a second, well, that’s got to be pretty doggone sweet.
The most tumultuous stretch of Rick Glenn’s career—maybe his entire life—began late last fall when, barely a month away from the date, he announced he would not read news >>
Bethe Correia vs. Shayna Baszler was moved to UFC 177 due the cancelation of UFC 176, and the undefeated Brazilian sees it as just a small postponement to her plans on getting a title fight with Ronda Rousey.
"I was training to fight [at UFC 176], and I was ready, but they changed the dates and made me hungrier than ever to fight and do what I have to do," Correia told MMAFighting.com. "I had more time to prepare, and I’m going to take it out on her [laughs]."

UFC Fight Night 49 saw another shake-up in the lightweight division when then No. 5-ranked Rafael dos Anjos defeated No. 1-ranked contender Benson Henderson.
This followed the UFC's announcement of Eddie Alvarez coming over to the organization to battle Donald Cerrone at UFC 178. Win or lose, it is hard to envision a scenario that does not involve Alvarez ranked in the top 15 post-178.
The lightweight title is on hold until after The Ultimate Fighter season 20 airs, and that gives the division a read news >>
