Outside of Anthony Johnson, Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) light heavyweight champion Jon Jones has pretty much cleaned out his division, and to date, no one has been able to solve the "Bones" riddle. His brother Chandler is not impressed. In fact, the Super Bowl 49 champ says that he's willing to prove it by battling his brother in a special one-round charity match, and since he's "bigger" than his sibling, would just "throw him to the ground" like a 205-pound sack of potatoes.

Not many shows can claim to feature the return of the greatest fighter in the history of the sport, Anderson Silva, against one of the most enigmatic stars in Nick Diaz. As compelling a figure as Diaz is, especially since he's also returning after a nearly two-year layoff, all eyes will rightly be focused on Silva. Last time fans saw The Spider, he was being read news >>

It's the one that got away. After years of back-and-forth jibber jabber, the one grudge match mixed martial arts (MMA) fans never got to see was the middleweight showdown between ex-Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) contender Chael Sonnen and former PRIDE smashing machine Wanderlei Silva. No, this doesn't count. We came close, mind you, at the UFC 175 pay-per-view (PPV) event last July; however, a pair of failed drug tests put the kibosh on their 185-pound showdown and effectively eliminated read news >>

In a photo taken on Monday afternoon in Sweden while completing a media tour, it appears Anthony Johnson completely dwarfs Alexander Gustafsson. While we all know how his run at welterweight ended several years ago, it is nearly impossible to imagine that Anthony Johnson was once a legitimate competitor in the UFC's 170-pound division. After the civil suit against him was dropped a couple of weeks ago, Johnson was immediately signed to an enthralling main event match-up against Alexander Gustafs read news >>

With the spotlight of his upcoming title fight with Chad Mendes at UFC 179, UFC featherweight champion Jose Aldo again brings up the issue of fighter pay. Aldo said he felt 'devalued' by the UFC earlier this year and is again asking why the athletes aren't taking home a bigger slice of the $1.65 billion pie. "I ask for financial valorization not only for me, some other fighters should have too," Aldo told Combate (via Bloody Elbow). "We give a lot for the company.
