Brazilian jiu-jitsu ace, Rener Gracie says Cris Cyborg gets too much credit and goes on to say that Rousey is so good that he doesn't see any woman in the world beating her. This past weekend was big for women's MMA. With both Invicta FC and the UFC featuring the top two females in the sport, and both sporting impressive wins in under a minute, it stands to reason that fan demand for a bout between UFC women's bantamweight champ, Ronda Rousey and Invicta FC featherweight champ, Cris Cyborg is at read news >>

It's no secret that Ronda Rousey is fast running out of contenders to compete for her bantamweight throne. Following her 14-second victory over Cat Zingano at UFC 184, Rousey has now defeated all five of the top-ranked female fighters in her division. And while there are still decent challenges out there in Jessica Eye and Bethe Correia, there's really only one name that carries the buzz of a potential blockbuster match-up: Invicta FC featherweight champion Cristiane "Cyborg" Justino. Rousey and read news >>

Credit to Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) heavyweight Stipe Miocic (12-2) for being a realist. The No. 4-ranked slugger will throw hands opposite No. 5-ranked Mark Hunt (10-9-1) at the upcoming UFC Fight Night 65 mixed martial arts (MMA) event "Down Under," scheduled for the Adelaide Entertainment Centre in Adelaide, South Australia, on May 10, 2015. As expected, the "Super Samoan" has already written Miocic's eulogy, convinced the agile big man is going to sleep against the former K-1 cham read news >>

Damned if they don't, damned if they do. That's the feeling I had at the conclusion of Wednesday's Ultimate Fighting Championship news conference on performance-enhancing drugs. For years, observers of mixed martial arts have scoffed at the UFC's seemingly lackadaisical efforts to control PEDs. Rightly so. While it was never an official stance, it felt like the promotion didn't care so much about PEDs in mixed martial arts unless it affected their bottom line. Even then, Dana White famously trum read news >>

Credit to Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) featherweight contender Conor McGregor, who clearly understands the first rule of partying with Dana. Don't talk about White club. "Notorious" was a guest on Highly Questionable with hosts Dan La Batard and Bomani Jones -- as well as some geezer who's propped up in between them for comic relief -- and wouldn't spill the beans when asked what it was like to spend a few wild nights with his boss. Sorry, that one stays in the vault. He also revealed a read news >>

Remember when Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) President Dana White celebrated his role in the bust of the (expletive) nerds who took down UFC.com? They're back. Either that, or another group of hackers with the same handle -- "Anonymous" -- is behind the latest data breach that affects mixed martial arts (MMA) fans worldwide. But unfortunately they're not alone, as thousands of usernames and passwords -- along with credit card numbers -- were reportedly made public from a variety of online read news >>

Bethe Correia is picking a fight. Give her credit, though: She's not going after the little girl at recess. The biggest star and payday on the playground is in Correia's sights. That would be UFC women's bantamweight champ, Ronda Rousey. "I will knock Ronda out in the first round, but first I’ll do her a favor and knock that mole off her face with a punch," Correia said in an interview with Guilherme Cruz of MMAFighting.com. You may know Correia (9-0) as the self-proclaimed "Horsewoman Killer." read news >>

A major credit rating agency has revised Zuffa’s earnings in 2014 and announced that the company’s earnings are expected to drop 40 percent. Following a difficult year for the UFC, where injuries and a slew of lackluster pay-per-views events have become characteristic, the promotion has suffered a significant decline in overall earnings. Major credit rating agency Standard and Poor's (S&P) announced on Wednesday that the UFC parent company Zuffa, LLC is expected to decline 40 percent in their EB read news >>

But also expects 2015 to be a recovery year for the world's largest mixed martial arts (MMA) promotion. Yin and Yang. Not long after Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) was named one of the "World's Most Valuable Sports Brands," under the leadership of "Brand Genius" (and UFC President) Dana White, the promotion took a stiff jab from Standard & Poor's, who downgraded the ZUFFA LLC credit rating from "BB" to "BB-" due to "greater EBITDA volatility" following a rough 2014. MMA Payout has some per read news >>

It looks like the financial sector is paying attention to Zuffa's rougher than expected year. It's no secret that 2014 has been a rough year for Zuffa in the PPV market. The injury woes of several major stars have sidelined many of the companies hopes for stacked "must buy" cards. It even appears that TUF 20, which was hoped to be something of a rejuvenation for the Ultimate Fighter, has largely failed to meet ratings expectations. In general, the UFC just seems to be having trouble getting view read news >>

"I was flying to Brazil and at the airport and I had the opportunity to sit and watch the Overeem fight. He is a comedy, a cartoon. You have to feel sorry for a guy like that. He is reaping what he sowed. Who plants the good reaps good. He's a despicable person and does not deserve much attention from people. He's a guy who just leaves enmity wherever he goes. It's sad to see a person like him, because we never wish harm on a person, never want to see a person in this situation. It may be that I read news >>

It feels redundant, if not a bit awkward, to credit a professional fighter for their courage. It's part of the job description, after all. If you stick around the game long enough to become successful, odds dictate that humanity's inherent fear of getting smacked upside the face was never really an issue for you in the first place. But every now and then another of history's occasional outliers comes along, the sort who curls a contemptuous lip at his own self-preservation to such a degree where read news >>
