As the recent UFC class action lawsuit has provided a serious pushback for fighters against the UFC, more are coming forward now, with their own stories of potentially poor conduct. Back in 2003, Pete Spratt was one of the better known welterweight fighters in MMA. He was fresh off a defeat of Robbie Lawler at UFC 42, and all lined up do be the next in line for a shot at Matt Hughes, despite his 2-1 record in the UFC (these were very different times). But, that title shot never came to be. At th read news >>

After six years outside the organization, a fighter has made his way back to the big show. It's something of a remarkable statement against the odds that Roan Carneiro is back in the UFC. Cut in 2008 after a 2-3 stint in the UFC, Carneiro has been wandering the regional wastelands for the past half decade, in search of a way back to the top. Stints in Shine Fights, United Glory, and Road FC eventually led him to one of the biggest US regional shows of 2014, Battlegrounds MMA 5: One Night Elimina read news >>

Friday's TUF 20 Finale sees an infusion of strawweight talent, most of whom will likely stick around to build up the new division. Meanwhile, Yancy Medeiros will want to further distance himself from an awkward 0-2 (1NC) start in the UFC. The first women's strawweight title will be given to the winner of The Ultimate Fighter 20 season Friday night at the TUF 20 Finale. Given that this TUF cast essentially forms the backbone of the new strawweight division, I think it's possible that all of them read news >>
