There are a number of different ways UFC can approach its latest signing, Rampage Jackson. But using the old star on the way out to make new stars may not be a role Jackson relishes. For the second time in three weeks, one of the biggest stories after a UFC show wasn't about the winner of the main event, but rather a major signing from another organization. While the signing of C.M. Punk two weeks ago was controversial in the sense he had never fought professionally, there was no question about read news >>

Rousimar Palhares continued his winning ways this past weekend (Sat., Dec. 13, 2014) at World Series of Fighting (WSOF) 16, submitting Jon Fitch in the opening round of their welterweight title fight in Sacramento, California (see full results here). But, in the eyes of many, "Toquinho" returned to his old ways of refusing to release a submission hold promptly after the tap.

After watching every Bellator event in the eleventh season - in some ways both the least meaningful and most - it's time to take a look back at what worked, what didn't, what's next and what's missing now that Scott Coker is in charge and Bjorn Rebney (and his tournaments) are gone.

That's what really worke read news >>

When the show was over, the stage was set for two title fights, T.J. Dillashaw vs. Dominick Cruz for the men's bantamweight title, and Ronda Rousey vs. Cat Zingano for the women's version of the same title. In both cases, these are not just contenders, but arguably the toughest fight either champion has among fighters on th read news >>

The 25-year-old brings constant pressure from the opening bell until the last, and her brand of tenacity has served to overwhelm every opponent she's faced inside the cage. read news >>

Spitting the truth, or sour grapes? After losing to Tim Kennedy in a lackluster affair at UFC 162 back in July of 2013, Roger Gracie went one-and-done inside the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Octagon.

A year later, the 10-time jiu-jitsu world champion is ready to attempt a comeback as he recently told Opavo (via Bloody Elbow) that read news >>
