For all of the talk of the UFC featherweight division and its seemingly uncrowned (media) king Conor McGregor, there's surprisingly little of it coming from or headed towards Frankie Edgar. The top featherweight contender and former lightweight champion has one of the most important fights for the division's future on Saturday when he takes on Cub Swanson at UFC Fight Night 57 in Austin, Texas. Yet, most of the talk is centered on Swanson or McGregor or simply other top contenders. As far as Edg read news >>

The UFC's brass obviously has no plans of easing former Bellator MMA champ Eddie Alvarez into the mix in its stacked lightweight division. Roughly a month after watching him drop his promotional debut in a barn-burner against Donald Cerrone, the UFC announced that Alvarez will face former UFC lightweight kingpin Benson Henderson in his next fight. The 10th-ranked Alvarez will lock horns with the fifth-ranked Henderson in the co-main event at UFC Fight Night 59 in Boston on Jan. 18. The night's m read news >>

UFC brass has decided that Season 4 of TUF Brazil will be filmed in Las Vegas. The first season of TUF Brazil was pretty awesome. Every guy there fought his heart out, and every guy there cried at least once during the course of the season. A guy would beat the living death out of his opponent, and cry like a baby afterwards, talking about how much he loved all God's creatures, great and small. It was kind of like Forrest Gump's box of chocolates, you never knew which emotion you were gonna get. read news >>

"I have a great relationship with Brock, we talk all the time," White said. "I don't know, we'll see. If he wants to fight, read news >>

A Canadian reporter tweeted that he saw the ex-UFC champ eating lunch with Dana White and the UFC isn't denying it. Former UFC champ and all-time UFC pay-per-view and live draw king Georges St-Pierre hasn't fought for the UFC since voluntarily dropping the title following UFC 167. He's currently rehabbing from yet another knee injury but is expected to be ready to fight in 2015. So its not really surprising that he'd be talking with UFC president Dana White is it? And you've got to figure there' read news >>

While a good amount of the hype is based on his in-cage performance, his brash attitude and ability to build himself up every time he's given a platform. And Twitter provides the perfect platform for McGregor to r read news >>

It only took 16 seconds for Dana White and the UFC brass to realize they were in trouble—UFC bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey was much, much better than anybody they could match her up with. Months prior to Rousey's UFC 175 matchup with Alexis Davis, White and company were looking to sign some much-needed talent to their shallow women's roster to challenge their trailblazing superstar. They attempted to lure former Strikeforce women's featherweight champion—now silver-screen action hero—Gina C read news >>
