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 >>

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 >>
