On a heavyweight-centric main card, lightweight contenders Rafael dos Anjos and Nate Diaz took part in the UFC on Fox 13 co-main event. A much-anticipated match-up between Rafael dos Anjos and Nate Diaz was changed to a catchweight after Diaz failed to make weight on Friday, but it still had plenty of importance pertaining to the lightweight division. It was a huge opportunity for the Brazilian to make another splash and state his case for a title shot, while the much-scrutinized character that read news >>

In the end, it was perhaps too much, too soon for Rose Namajunas. They came to the cage as opposite portraits. Namajunas was all bounce and intensity, singing along with Young MC and generally looking like someone who came to Las Vegas to complete her journey. Carla Esparza, who perhaps won walkout song of the decade by strolling to the cage to the dulcet tones of "Harvester of Sorrows" by Metallica, looked calm and perhaps even a little scared. It was as though the moment had gotten to her and read news >>

When Johny Hendricks heard his name announced as the new UFC welterweight champion following his battle with Robbie Lawler at UFC 171 back in March, he fell to his knees under the weight of the moment. The former two-time NCAA Division I national champion wrestler turned MMA powerhouse had just come through a five-round war with a resurgent slugger turned contender—four of which he did without the use of his left arm due to a torn bicep—and now had 12 pounds of championship gold around his waist read news >>

With a dominant win over Cub Swanson at UFC Fight Night 57, Frankie Edgar is back in the running for a shot at featherweight champion Jose Aldo. Although Edgar has only made three appearances since losing to Aldo in February 2013, he's stopped Swanson and BJ Penn in back-to-back outings. The Answer also arguably came closer to dethroning Aldo than any other UFC title challenger. Could this victory over Swanson be enough to get Edgar back into the pound-for-pound rankings? Here are the latest off read news >>

Frankie Edgar polished off his dominant performance over Cub Swanson with a flourish, scoring the latest finish in UFC history with a fifth-round neck crank which, with just four seconds remaining, coaxed a quick tap from Swanson in what had already become an overwhelmingly lopsided main event in Austin, Texas at UFC Fight Night 57. "Dana (White), you said you'd be watching. I hope you like what you see," an elated Edgar (18-4-1) said afterward. "I'm coming for that belt. Whether you give it to read news >>

By his own admission, David Branch is a late bloomer. While that term is most often directly tied to a fighter's success in mixed martial arts—something Branch has found in solid clips the past few years—the New York native used those words to describe the versatile fighting style he's crafted during the most recent chapter of his career. Branch has expanded his arsenal to a point where the 33-year-old middleweight is not only able to handle everything that comes his way inside the cage, but he' read news >>

Usually dominant, Jose Aldo ran into a tough bout Saturday against Chad Mendes. In his first meeting with Mendes, Aldo took care of business quickly.

In the end, though, Aldo stood tall once again, winning on all three scorecards. Currently, Aldo is now tied with read news >>

Johnson was one of the top fighters at 135 pounds when the UFC first introduced that weight class prior to flyweight. He defeat read news >>
