I think it's safe to say that Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) light heavyweight kingpin Jon Jones, as well as women's bantamweight titleholder Ronda Rousey, won't be a part of the upcoming class-action lawsuit against ZUFFA. Just a hunch. That's because "Bones" and "Rowdy" were both added to the list of mixed martial arts (MMA) fighters signed to Reebok, alongside former welterweight champion Johny Hendricks and reigning lightweight straphanger Anthony Pettis. What does that mean, exactly? read news >>

The ex-UFC champ thinks the LHW and MW belts will be retained by the current champs despite tough challenges from Daniel Cormier and Vitor Belfort. Lyoto Machida has fought and lost to current UFC LHW champ Jon Jones and current UFC MW champ Chris Weidman. So maybe he's biased. Either way, Machida is picking both men to retain their titles in their next bouts. Jones faces Daniel Cormier at UFC 182 on January 3 in Las Vegas. Weidman faces Vitor Belfort at UFC 184 in February in California. Machid read news >>

The critics said Jose Aldo Jr. had a weak gas tank (This, despite finishing in the fourth round against Chan Sung Jung, winning the fourth against Ricardo Lamas, the fifth on two of three cards against Frankie Edgar, and so on).

They said the only 145-pound kingpin the UFC has ever known wasn't nearly as big a star as he could read news >>

Right smack dab in the middle of the UFC’s process of globalization, all of its champions share something peculiar in common: America. Everybody with a UFC belt in the third quarter of the year 2014 is American. Everyone except Brazilian Jose Aldo, who is fighting not just to retain his title at UFC 179 against uber-American big game hunter Chad Mendes, but to prevent the symbolic bald eagle from flying off with the other continents in its talons.(Here’s where you cue this song and hum along for read news >>

The Ultimate Fighting Championship, just like any other major sports promotion, is susceptible to injury-plagued moments. Just like a team in the NFL or NBA can have its season hopes ruined by one misstep, an entire MMA event can be blown up due to one painful moment.
