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 >>

Luke Rockhold says he's open to a fight against "The Dragon," but he'd rather take on the winner of Jacare Souza vs. Gegard Mousasi in order to earn a title fight. Then again, if Luke can finish Machida, it might accomplish the same goal. Lyoto Machida recently took the opportunity to call out Luke Rockhold for a showdown inside the Octagon later this year. Now, the former Strikeforce middleweight champion has responded by saying he would be down for scrap against an "amazing" fighter such as "T read news >>

But is banging it out with "The Phenom" the smartest thing to do? To the mixed martial arts (MMA) analyst, as well as any fan of the sport, hardcore or novice, the general consensus is that Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) middleweight champion Chris Weidman's best chance to retain his title against Vitor Belfort is to avoid a stand-up battle. Lyoto Machida, on the other hand, doesn't seem to think that's necessarily the case. Speaking to MMA Fighting, "The Dragon" says there is no denying h read news >>

If anyone knows just how good Chris Weidman is, it's Lyoto Machida. The former light heavyweight champion went toe-to-toe with the current middleweight champion for 25 minutes and came up on the losing end. Weidman, whose pedigree is that of a wrestler, got the better of Machida in all aspects of the striking game. Machida was apparently so impressed with Weidman's offensive, he thinks the champ can stand and trade with one of the scariest strikers on the planet in Vitor Belfort. When asked if W read news >>

UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones has always maintained he'd be open to facing middleweight champion Chris Weidman in a 'super fight,' but hasn't always seemed so attentive to the idea. In February, Jones said he'd like to see Weidman grow his resume before considering fighting him. "A lot of people are starting to mention Chris Weidman's name and I think in order for it to be a superfight Chris Weidman needs to get his name a little bit bigger and prove himself against some other world c read news >>

Some people might think Chris Weidman should avoid a striking match with Vitor Belfort if he wants to successfully defend his middleweight championship at UFC 181 on Dec. 6. Lyoto Machida is not one of them. "The Dragon" trained with Belfort in the past and spent 25 minutes inside the Octagon with Weidman, and he doesn’t think the "Al American" should go for takedowns to win in Las Vegas. "I don’t think so. Weidman is ready to fight anywhere," Machida told MMAFighting.com. "If he has to stand, h read news >>

Be careful what you wish for. What a difference a couple of months (and one big win) can make. Not that long ago, Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) light heavyweight titleholder Jon Jones said there wasn't anything super about a fight against Chris Weidman, because the promotion's middleweight champion didn't have a big enough name. Then came a "Dragon" slaying over Fourth of July Weekend and suddenly "Bones" (via Sherdog) is all over it. "Oh, man, I think that would be awesome. I would absol read news >>

No telling how many were lost by the absence of Chael Sonnen vs. Wanderlei Silva when you consider this. Championship doubleheaders are good for business. Especially when one of those champions is Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) women's bantamweight queenpin Ronda Rousey, who UFC President Dana White insists is the biggest star in mixed martial arts (MMA) past, present, and possibly future. And the addition of Chris Weidman certainly didn't hurt, according to MMA Fighting, who recently rele read news >>
