Jordan "Young Gun" Mein will fight former welterweight title challenger Thiago Alves in the first bout on UFC 183's main card this Saturday. It's a fight that will pit two fighters at drastically different points in their UFC careers against each other. Mein has only one Octagon loss (a competitive second-round TKO loss to top-10 welterweight Matt Brown), while Alves has alternated wins and losses and battled numerous injuries over the last three years. In four fights, Mein has achieved a 3-1 re read news >>

Some of you young bucks may not be old enough to remember what Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) was like when Tim Sylvia was king of the heavyweight castle, but there was a point from 2005-06 when "The Maine-iac" won six straight, including two over then-fanboy darling Andrei Arlovski. Sigh ... good times. In fact, his bout against Randy Couture is what prompted me to spout off at the mouth for the very first time right here on MMAmania.com, as I predicted a swift and certain death for "The read news >>

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) light heavyweight champion Jon Jones continued his dominant reign atop the promotion's 205-pound division, handing Daniel Cormier the first loss of his mixed martial arts (MMA) career last weekend (Sat., Jan. 3, 2015) at UFC 182 in Las Vegas, Nevada (watch it).

"Bones," who is "a little off the beaten path of major American pro sports stars," according to Forbes, made the magazine's "30 Under 30" list for being one of read news >>

Hector Lombard's proclivity for controlled violence began at a young age. Lombard said he began fighting as a way to release pent-up anger while growing up in Matanzas, Cuba. His eventual move into judo was a natural progression, and he was quite good at it, to say the least. But Lombard relishes the striking game. There is a visible glee in his eye when he discusses punching other men in the face, and you can see it when he fights. Lombard, a very nice man outside of the cage, is utterly terrif read news >>

Renan Barao must've thought he'd live forever. After all, the young man had it all. He was the three-time defending UFC bantamweight champion. He had a nine-year, 34-fight unbeaten streak. At the tender age of 27, he had earned global fame and adoration in the combat sports-o-sphere. It all hit its peak this past May. None other than UFC President Dana White threw all his considerable muscle behind Barao, calling the champ the best pound-for-pound fighter in the world. But then? It all came cras read news >>

"What can a young fighter offer to his sponsors, if not the space on their shorts? To help, I am giving space on all my social media, which reaches millions of people. Show your sponsors and I will post it to my friends. That way you can offer a lot more exposure to your sponsors and even get new ones. And I want to ask the other fighters, our icons in the sport. It's the minimum we can do and for me it's a pleasure to help the next generation. I know what a fighter goes through until he can mak read news >>

So keep doing you, young man. You will find no shortage of fighters, much less top Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) featherweight contenders, who have an unkind thing to say about the sharp-tongued Conor McGregor. Among the many 145-pounders who have blasted him are Dustin Poirier, who doesn't feel he deserves all the media attention he gets. And Ricardo Lamas, who doesn't care much for the Irishman and his pocket watches. Even division kingpin, Jose Aldo, doesn't like the mention of Conor's read news >>
