Bethe Correia is a woman on a mission. In fact, one could attach any number of descriptors to her (lioness, warrior, pitbull) and they all would support the notion that the undefeated Brazilian... read news >>
Things have been a little topsy-turvy in Sara McMann’s UFC run; in fact, the one-time Olympic wrestler’s trajectory seems slightly ridiculous even though the Zuffa portion of her career is just shy of three fights old. McMann destroyed the "Wanderlei Silva" of women’s MMA, the German fighter Sheila Gaff, in her debut on the UFC 157 prelims. It was a good start which generated the right amount of buzz. How much buzz? Ten long months later, after bout with Sarah Kaufman fell through, she leapfrogg read news >>

The fact is, violence is not only not a beautiful thing, but it's also very painful and not without consequences for the perpetrator, as well as the victim. --Clint Eastwood
If you stand in front of him, Matt Brown will knock you the fuck out.
Or in some near-death cases, like that of resilient Brazilian punching bag Erick Silva, he'll play whack-a-mole with your dome until you think your name is "Diane" and you're a waitress from Indiana.
That's the kind of violence you can expect from an "Immo read news >>
Dana White's scrums are usually a source of fantastic information. The UFC president sits down on a chair, the media circles around him, and an informal chat begins. White will discuss the latest in UFC news and share his opinion on nearly any subject under the sun.
The scrums are so popular that the promotion recently began airing them on Fight Pass, their digital subscription service that will also air tomorrow's UFC card from Dublin, Ireland. The scrums are no longer the sole domain of the me read news >>
Dana White wants everyone to know that business is booming in UFC land. In fact, it's 'never been bigger.'
One of the more consistent narratives in MMA for 2014 has been the UFC's declining business. While we don't know any specific numbers for UFC 174, the early talk is that it did less than 100,000 pay-per-view buys, a number that seemed unthinkably low in very recent years.
Jon Jones hasn't developed into a star capable of pulling much more than 350,000 buys, despite being a freakish talent w read news >>

But the presence of HGH and EPO, two very difficult to detect compounds, which no MMA fighter had ever tested positive for, raises troubling questions and no easy answers.
When the news broke Saturday of Chael Sonnen failing another drug test, this one administered on June 5, I was shocked, and it is likely many in the MMA community were stunne read news >>

(Fact: No can defense Rustan Khabilov's patented Crab Attack.) While listening to the latest episode of the CME Podcast earlier today, I was somewhat surprised to learn that Patrick Cummins vs. Roger Narvaez will be the only bout on this weekend's Fight Night 42: Henderson vs. Khabilov card *not* featured on Fox Sports 1. Cummins, who was previously heralded as "a beast" and "no joke" prior to getting smashed by Daniel Cormier at UFC 170, has fallen from co-main event-worthy to Fight Passable in read news >>

Tough enough to outlast the ex-champ? That remains to be seen. "Rustam's very tough, man. We all know those Russians, they're very tough. You know they're known as a people as being tough, the stereotype, so to speak. But he proves it inside the Octagon, as well. It's not just a stereotype for him, but it's fact. He's a tough kid.
