Traveling down to Brazil to defeat fighters competing on their home turn inside the Octagon is a difficult task to accomplish, but CB Dollaway has been seemingly immune to the stigma. On two previous occasions, The Doberman has traveled south of the equator and pulled off shocking upsets over two of Brazil's most highly touted prospects. He was figured to get steamrolled by the likes of Daniel Sarafian and Cezar Ferreira, but the former Arizona State University wrestling standout is as game as t read news >>

However the UFC on FOX 13 card goes down in history, the number 13 will stand out as its lingering omen. There was Jamie Varner knocking himself out on a takedown (and subsequent retirement), Ryan Jimmo bitching about his comp seats (nose bleeds), Cris ‘Cyborg’ Justino reveling in her cageside seats (f*ck you, Ryan Jimmo!), Charles Barkley mixing company with Sensei Steven Seagal (who’s up for another round of jalapeño poppers?) and Stipe Miocic and Junior dos Santos just straight going to war, read news >>

There's only one way Mark "Super Samoan" Hunt can defeat Fabricio Werdum on Saturday night at UFC 180: He has to land a huge shot that puts Werdum away. If Hunt doesn't connect with one of his explosive right hands, he'll be picked apart all night and ultimately submitted. While everyone has to have some affinity for the proverbial puncher's chance, if I was putting money on it, I'd bet on Werdum. Over the last few years, Werdum has evolved from a one-dimensional submission specialist to a well- read news >>

Conor McGregor watched Jose Aldo defeat Chad Mendes in a spectacular bout on Oct. 25, but former UFC champion Lyoto Machida doesn’t think McGregor has what it takes to dethrone the reigning champion. "If you’re going to compare him to Jose Aldo, Aldo is technically better," Machida told MMAFighitng.com. "(McGregor) is a tough fighter, he’s coming out strong, but you can’t say he beats Aldo. Aldo is too dominant." Machida and McGregor are completely different fighters inside and outside the Octag read news >>

After a defeat in what was best UFC featherweight title fight to date, Chad Mendes finds himself in a difficult position. Mendes' skill set and success, and being a contemporary of Jose Aldo, may make him the best fighter who never hold a world championship. After Saturday night's fight with Jose Aldo, Chad Mendes may wind up with the dubious distinction of being the greatest challenger in UFC history, in the sense he may be the best all-around fighter who, due to timing, never gets a championsh read news >>

A 7th defeat in 9 fights was apparently the straw that broke the camel's back, and now Paulo Thiago is no longer a UFC fighter. This is news that is perhaps unsurprising and openly welcomed. Paulo Thiago was once a darkhorse contender in the welterweight division, which was kick-started after he knocked out Josh Koscheck in 2009. But a noticeably sharp decline in performance led to a run of just 2 wins in his last 9 fights, and the Brazilian's days in the UFC are over. Globo's Ivan Raupp first b read news >>

Dantas held the 135-pound championship for two and a half years, and he feels he deserves an immediate rematch after a unanimous decision loss in Thackerville, Okla. "I want this rematch. I want to fight him again," "Dudu" told MMAFighting.com after Bellator 128. "I believe I deserve it because I was the champion for two years, I waited for Bella read news >>

Brazil's Nova Uniao camp boasted three champions between the UFC and Bellator at the start of 2014, but they could be down to none should Jose Aldo lose to Chad Mendes. Nova Uniao has built itself up as one of the top camps in MMA, particularly following the rises of Jose Aldo and Renan Barao, who established themselves as UFC champions and two of the unquestioned top fighters in the sport. In Bellator, Eduardo Dantas was widely considered to be the best bantamweight not in the UFC, and aside fr read news >>
