Retirement? Dan Henderson isn't considering anything like that. The MMA legend fell to Gegard Mousasi by TKO in the first round Saturday night at UFC on FOX 14: Gustafsson vs. Johnson in Stockholm, Sweden. Henderson was rocked, fell down against the cage and then was finished by Mousasi. The stoppage might have been a tad early -- Henderson seemed to be coming to when referee Leon Roberts stepped in -- but there was no doubt "Hendo" was in big trouble. Henderson (30-12) has now lost five of his read news >>

Former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) welterweight kingpin Georges St. Pierre walked away from mixed martial arts (MMA) in late 2013, citing personal and professional stress as contributing factors to his impromptu hiatus (more on that here). At this point, he should probably just stay home. That's because he'll get wrecked by Robbie Lawler if he decides to make another go-round in combat sports. That's according to UFC hall of famer and longtime "Ruthless" supporter Pat Miletich, who beli read news >>

Not that he's without bias, but you perk up a bit when you hear someone, especially Pat Miletich, say anyone would 'wreck' former UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre. Current welterweight champion Robbie Lawler spent years training under the UFC Hall of Famer in Bettendorf, Iowa, but Miletich says the slugger would have been a nightmare matchup for St-Pierre long before his recent career resurgence at American Top Team. "I think at the time Georges St. Pierre was the champion and I told read news >>

When Bubba Jenkins and Georgi Karakhanyan tangle inside Bellator's circular cage this Friday night, it won't be the first time the two have been willing dance partners. Actually, far from it. A decorated NCAA champion wrestler, Jenkins served as one of Karakhanyan's primary sparring partners ahead of Karakhanyan's WSOF title challenge against fellow wrestler Lance Palmer in late-2013, and Jenkins thinks the time the two featherweights spent together could very well come into play at Bellator 132 read news >>

Speaking on Fox Sports' MMA Roasted podcast, Covington discussed some of the shenanigans (and brawls) the two got into during their days at Iowa Central Community College.

While Thacher was making his pro debut, this fight was all Stokes from its onset, according to Phoe read news >>

Because "The Mauler" has no plans of spending his days sitting on the sidelines. Anthony Johnson won't be returning to the Octagon anytime soon following the domestic violence charges against him that forced Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) to indefinitely suspend the hard-hitting contender. Not only does that put a pause on "Rumble's" hot streak, but it also leaves Alexander Gustafsson without a dance partner who, after weeks of back-and-forth with Johnson, finally agreed to the bout.
