Three-and-a-half years ago, in the early fall of 2011, the present-day reality of the UFC's light heavyweight title picture would have seemed outlandish, ridiculous and utterly impossible. "Anthony 'Rumble' Johnson will never fight Jon 'Bones' Jones," you would have said. Bones was coming off a fourth-round destruction of Quinton "Rampage" Jackson in his first title defense; Johnson was head-kicking natural lightweights while repeatedly struggling to make the welterweight division's 170-pound cu read news >>

Just three short years ago, Anthony "Rumble" Johnson was dismissed as a head case. He seemed likely to go down as a fighter who boasted all the physical tools, but one who was never going to quite get it together. It was right around this time in 2012 when Johnson lashed out at fans on Facebook after badly missing weight for a UFC bout against Vitor Belfort, which was far from his first weight-cutting mishap, then was cut from the roster following a submission loss. "Rumble" hasn't lost a fight read news >>

Johnson's final salvo, a series of ferocious right hands t read news >>

Don't tell Dan "Hendo" Henderson he's 44 years old. Don't remind him he's lost four of his last five bouts, two in brutal fashion. Don't tell him it seems increasingly obvious the sport is passing him by. He won't have it. "The gold is still the goal," Henderson told Bleacher Report. "It always has been." Strolling into his UFC on Fox 14 matchup against No. 8-ranked UFC middleweight Gegard Mousasi, Henderson's focus and will remains intact. "I'm not going anywhere quite yet," Henderson said.
