Don't call it a comeback. At least that's not how Josh Burkman sees his return to the UFC. While it's been more than six years since The People's Warrior has competed inside the Octagon, the 34-year-old veteran has spent every step of his absence from the sport's biggest stage scrapping to get back to where he believes he belongs. A three-fight skid may have cost him his roster spot back in 2008, but Burkman has gotten things back on track in a big way as he's won nine of his 11 showings inside read news >>

Coaches initially worried the herniated disc which sidelined Holm (7-0) from her UFC 181 debut would be career threatening. Luckily now that doesn't appear to be th read news >>

With this process being consistently repeated, there isn't a ton of room in a fighter's life to take on many endeavors beyond his immediate career. Mark Munoz is making read news >>

After a long war of words in the buildup for the fight, the fifth-ranked McGregor made good on his prediction and KO'd an emotional Poirier in just one minute, 46 seconds to move another step closer to challenging for the featherweight strap. But in the five weeks since his setback to the silver-tongued Irishman, Poirier has shown that h read news >>

It doesn't take much observation to notice Luke Rockhold is a very talented fighter. As a prospect on the rise, the American Kickboxing Academy staple steamrolled his way through the Strikeforce Challengers series and garnered enough respect and attention along the way to earn a shot at the promotion's middleweight title. The Santa Cruz native would go on to earn the 185-pound strap by edging out former grappling world champion-turned-MMA-powerhouse Ronald "Jacare" Souza in a five-round war back read news >>

The Phoenix Suns were in mid-blowout of the Denver Nuggets -- much to this writer's delight, I might add -- by the time Stipe Miocic and Junior dos Santos filed of the U.S. Airways Center on a warm weekend night in the desert. Both heavyweights were exhausted, and rightly so after being wrung through the media wringer for two days straight in a city where WEC 53 set the benchmark for world-class MMA four year ago, but has effectively been left deserted ever seen.
