Flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson talks about why he doesn't find Paige VanZant attractive and how he doesn't like to tell new acquaintances that he is a fighter. UFC champion Demetrious Johnson has always struggled with mainstream popularity. While his in-cage exploits are a joy to behold, his mic and promotional skills leave a lot to be desired, which played a part in UFC 174's abysmal PPV buy rate. The Johnson vs. Ali Bagautinov main event garnered the promotion's lowest amount of pay-per read news >>

Odds are, if you find your eyes currently gliding across this screen from one line to the next, you're an MMA fan. No matter how educated a fan you claim to be, no matter how much you pride yourself in appreciating a less-than-entertaining, grueling clinch battle against the cage, you enjoy seeing a knockout. You'll never complain after seeing one fighter walk across the cage with his God-given force that compels his opponent to succumb to gravity. Some fighters have it, some fighters don't.

Nick Diaz didn't find it necessary to appear at the UFC 183 open workouts on Wednesday, or to even arrive in Las Vegas as scheduled. It's been quiet. Too quiet for a Nick Diaz headlined event. Even according to opponent Anderson Silva, Diaz has been quite respectful ahead of Saturday night's clash at UFC 183. In fact, the trash-talking has been kept to a relative minimum, and as a result this event doesn't have the same "Nick Diaz buzz" to it as we've seen against the likes of Georges St-Pierre read news >>

TUF veterans may find themselves on the chopping block in Stockholm this weekend. Given how many of Saturday's fighters are coming in off a victory, a relative few seem likely to be facing release from the UFC. For one of the night's competitors, though, there is the lurking question of retirement... Likely Cut with a Loss Andy Ogle (9-5, 1-4 UFC) - I'm surprised Ogle was kept on the roster past a third straight loss. I very much doubt they'd allow for a fourth. Possibly Cut with a Loss Akira Co read news >>

Lorenz Larkin didn't find much success as a middleweight. Sure, he beat Robbie Lawler in his 185-pound debut three years ago, but since then, he dropped four out of five, including all three of his UFC bouts. At welterweight, however? Different story. The Riverside, Calif. native made a strong impression Sunday night at UFC Fight Night 59. Larkin (15-4, 1 NC), blitzed to victory at the TD Garden, ruining the homecoming for Boston's John Howard. Larkin needed just 2:17 to win via TKO. The end cam read news >>
