Carla Esparza emerged from the field of 16 on this season's Ultimate Fighter to become the first ever women's strawweight champion in the UFC. Coming out of this season of The Ultimate Fighter, Rose Namajunas was an easy fighter to root for. She had a good backstory, a great personality and a style that is very enjoyable to watch.

LAS VEGAS – If the old belief that you don’t really become a champion within this sporting fringe until you’ve defended the belt at least once is true, then Anthony Pettis is finally the legit UFC lightweight king. He can no longer be called a "paper champion," which has long been the ammunition of his haters. Not only did he defend the belt against Gilbert Melendez in the co-main event at UFC 181 -- nearly 16 months after winning it at UFC 164 -- he became the first man to finish "El Nino."

Clay Collard and Sergio Pettis emerged victorious in their respective UFC 181 preliminary card fights. The UFC 181 card kicked off with two fights that aired on Fight Pass, and both of them were pretty entertaining. Both went to decision, but there were good striking exchanges and some fancy grappling in each of them. In the end though, it was Clay Collard and Sergio Pettis that picked up victories. The opening bout took place in the featherweight division with Alex White taking on Collard. Coll read news >>

The silver lining quickly emerged from the black cloud that was the loss of the Dec. 6 Chris Weidman-Vitor Belfort bout. The dust had barely settled on Monday's news that a Weidman broken hand had forced the postponement of the middleweight title fight when the UFC announced a new main event for UFC 181 at Las Vegas' Mandalay Bay Events Center: Johny Hendricks vs. Robbie Lawler for the welterweight title. The new main event is a rematch of a bout which could still end up as 2013's Fight of the Y read news >>

Earlier this year, Muhammed "King Mo" Lawal casually emerged from the haze of Bellator 120 to recommend (on national television) that Bellator founder Bjorn Rebney stop being such a "dick rider." It was a bizarre and voyeuristic sight, the explosive finale of a long-coming divorce, and it repeated itself over, and over, and over, leaving poor Rebney dazed and the internet stifling its collective guffaws by the end of the night. What a world of difference four months can make, eh? Now Rebney is o read news >>

A new force has emerged in the UFC's light heavyweight division. The funny thing about Anthony Johnson, who brutally destroyed Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira to cement himself as one of the top contenders to the 205-pound champion, is that he got here in such a roundabout way. Back in the old days, before he became a punchline for his inability to make 170 pounds, Johnson displayed brief glimpses of fearsome power and finishing ability. Who can forget the untimely ends met by Yoshiyuki Yoshida and Kev read news >>
