It has been said that good news travels fast. Late last week, news broke that Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) would be faced with an "imminent" lawsuit from past and present fighters, one that is expected to accuse the world's largest mixed martial arts (MMA) promotion of violating antitrust laws.

Any time there is a UFC title on the line, serious business is sure to follow. Furthermore, when two divisional straps go up for grabs on the same card, a powerful front of chaos is likely to roll through. There were two championship bouts topping the lineup at UFC 181 on Saturday night, and both were of the highly anticipated variety.

That said, his opponent became a tricky situation in the lead-up to the event. The 32-year-old former C read news >>

War Machine appears to be passing the time in the Clark County Detention Center by tweeting out Nietzsche quotes and writing poems from his cell.

Boy, what a time everyone's going to have on Saturday. The UFC is back with a pay-per-view presence befitting its price tag, serving up fight after fight built on big names and big excitement. Dominick Cruz. Tim Kennedy. Cat Zingano. Donald Cerrone. Eddie Alvarez. Dustin Poirier. Conor McGregor. It reads like a who's who of the sport, a collection of names who are far more likely to be placed atop a Fight Pass card or a Fox Sports 1 show instead of being used to fill slots so far down as the pay read news >>

While the UFC’s 155-pound division is bottlenecked until Anthony Pettis defends the belt against Gilbert Melendez in December, the war of "next" in that class has had plenty of plot twists.

It has been a long time since a season of The Ultimate Fighter felt like a big deal. I am not telling you anything you don't know. This is not a revelation. The Ultimate Fighter has been stuck on "not interesting" for years. To tell you the truth, I long ago decided the show would continue sliding down into the pit where things that are no longer relevant go to die. There, it would find itself in decent company, with the final two seasons of The Killing and every international variation of The U read news >>

For a very long time, fans of the combative sports have been waiting (or even dying) for the UFC to go to Mexico. The reasoning is simple: Mexico is home to some of the greatest fighters in the world, hands down, and MMA fans would love to see fighters like them in the Octagon. To think that the next generation of great MMA fighters may come, at least in part, from Mexico—if they are inspired—is terribly exciting. But we knew that was never going to happen until Zuffa decided to go all-in when i read news >>

If anybody understands how topsy-turvy life in the UFC can be, it’s Danny Castillo. Not all that long ago, Castillo found himself in the UFC doghouse when he turned down a bout with Takanori Gomi on the advice of his coach, Duane Ludwig. He went on the MMA Hour shortly thereafter and said he regretted the decision. His penitence, presumably, was a buried prelim spot against Charlie Brenneman at UFC 172.How did he handle it? Castillo scored one of the more memorable knockouts of the year at that read news >>
