There are some divisions in the UFC where the talent pool seems endless. Classes like lightweight, featherweight, and welterweight have always had a constant stream of contenders rising up through the ranks.

Former UFC fighter Cody McKenzie found a rather unusual way to make the 170 lbs limit ahead of his one-night tournament appearance at Battlegrounds MMA. When fighters struggle to make weight on the day of the weigh-ins, they typically resort to the old-fashioned tactic of removing clothing, sweating off the pounds in the sauna, or the lesser known decision to remove unnecessary body parts with a chainsaw.

All eight welterweight competitors met their required weights ahead of Battlegrounds MMA's one-night single-elimination tournament at Thursday's weigh-ins in Tulsa, Okla.

At some point -- Pat Curran can't quite remember when -- Patricio Freire's chagrined grumbles and random bursts of aggression faded into background noise, a sort of rage-fueled, two-year long stream of dead air that Curran was more than happy to ignore. Nearly 22 months have passed since the two rivals competed in the first-ever Bellator fight to broadcast on Spike TV, and in that time the champ has heard it all: complaints about the scoring that awarded Curran a split decision (and the belt) th read news >>
