Former Bellator matchmaker Sam Caplan says that back in 2010, they came very close to signing current middleweight champion Chris Weidman. After four-and-a-half years as their matchmaker, Bellator decided to part ways with Sam Caplan during the regime change that brought in former Strikeforce heads Scott Coker and Rich Chou.

Jacare Souza isn't the middleweight division's squeakiest wheel. His is a weight class flush with noisemakers, and for much of the last few years, guys like Vitor Belfort, Chael Sonnen and Michael Bisping have gotten more than their share of the grease. With the rest of our attentions focused on protracted drama between Anderson Silva and Chris Weidman, there's been precious little room lately to celebrate quiet perfection. Never mind that for nearly three years, all Souza has done is win. Never read news >>

Former UFC middleweight and current FOX Sports 1 MMA analyst Brian Stann found himself on the hot seat during UFC Tonight when interviewing Chris Weidman about the "doubters" who question the "All American" title reign. That's because Stann picked Lyoto Machida to win the strap at UFC 175 last month in Las Vegas and Weidman -- tapped as a future network analyst -- refused to let him live it down. See the confrontation at the 0:55 mark. Maybe Stann will now pick Vitor Belfort at UFC 181 just for read news >>

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

"The Count" is coming off his first win since UFC 159 when he defeated Cung Le via fourth round TKO last week in Macau. Although his win came against an inactive 42-year-old middleweight, he read news >>

Can't knock (out) the confidence. Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) middleweight titleholder, Chris Weidman, recently said if he doesn't get a stoppage victory over Vitor Belfort when they collide at UFC 181 on Dec. 6, 2014 in Las Vegas, Nevada, that he'd be "real disappointed." Weidman, a jiu-jitsu black belt, has proven he's got the chops to either submit or knockout his opponent (proof). And while most would agree it would behoove "All American" to stray from engaging in a stand-up battle read news >>

Invisibility will always remain a superpower most of us dream of acquiring. As a kid, I remember pulling a blanket over my head and walking around my house pretending to be unseen. I would creep up on my mom, peer around the corner at my dad or run around like a banshee with wings. But as magnificent and pure as that was, being invisible in today's world doesn't necessarily equate to immediate awesomeness. From coffee lines to UFC supremacy, we are often better seen for what we are—no false repr read news >>
