We're about 18 months into the new era of middleweight champion Chris Weidman. Ever since that historic night inside of the MGM Grand Garden Arena at UFC 162, the world has begun familiarizing itself with this new breed. He's the All-American and the best fighter at 185 pounds.

Bennett told MMA Fighting that he would be surprised to see the result of the entertaining middleweight scrap overturned.

After Kennedy had begun to mount a comeback in the second round read news >>

Towering in at 6'4'' and hitting the scales just within heavyweight confines, you t read news >>

Simply put, Jones’ 2011 may well go down as the greatest individual year any MMA fighter has ever had. Jones won four straight fights during that calendar turn, capturing the 205-pound title and defeating three former light heavyweight champions in a row in Shogun Rua, Quinton “Rampage” Jackson and Lyoto Machida.
