If you thought Wanderlei Silva would go quietly into that good night after finishing his career with the human equivalent of a dumpster fire, well, you've got another thing coming. To recap: Silva, one of the most beloved fighters in the history of the sport, ran from a random drug test last summer. That was enough for the Nevada Athletic Commission to issue Silva the equivalent of a lifetime ban, effectively ending Silva's career (at least when it comes to fighting for any reputable organizatio read news >>

Demetrious Johnson made it look easy, dominating Chris Cariaso and finishing him off in the second round. Demetrious Johnson was a huge favorite over Chris Cariaso heading into the main event of UFC 178. Cariaso was looking to take the UFC flyweight championship from the only man to have ever held the title, but was doing so as more of a "best available option" than "top contender." It didn't take Johnson too long to score a takedown and put Cariaso down next to the cage. While Johnson was activ read news >>

After Jon Jones took a shot at Daniel Cormier for finishing fourth at the Olympics, Cormier launched the perfect retaliatory tweet. Jon Jones somehow found a way to heckle Daniel Cormier while on the Jimmy Kimmel show for "only" finishing fourth place in the Olympics. The heat has certainly died down considerably between Jones and Cormier as of late, the postponement of their UFC light heavyweight title fight being the obvious culprit. Before Jones was injured, the two men were brawling at press read news >>

Luke Rockhold says he's open to a fight against "The Dragon," but he'd rather take on the winner of Jacare Souza vs. Gegard Mousasi in order to earn a title fight.

Now, the former Strikeforce middleweight champion has responded by saying he would be down for scrap against an "amazing" fighter such as "T read news >>

Because there is no reason to settle for a quick finish when "DC" can punish "Bones" for five rounds. At UFC 165 last September, Alexander Gustafsson took Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Light Heavyweight Champion Jon Jones into deep waters, forcing the champ to go a full 25 minutes inside the cage and leaving him looking worse for wear. As a result, "Bones" was forced to take a trip to the hospital, as did "The Mauler." And at UFC 178 on Sept. 27, 2014, Daniel Cormier hopes that Jones can read news >>

SAN JOSE, Calif. - The "T" in Brian Ortega's "T-City" nickname stands for "triangle," but apparently he can submit you any way he pleases. The Los Angeles native wasted little time in his UFC debut on Saturday, submitting Mike De La Torre via rear-naked choke in 1:38 of the first round of their featherweight bout at UFC on FOX 12 at the SAP Center. Ortega went Urijah Faber style on de la Torre, getting his back while standing, sinking in a body triangle, and applying the RNC. De la Torre was sti read news >>

When the Ultimate Fighting Championship asked Anthony Johnson if he wanted to fight Antonio Rogerio Nogueira, he didn't do the obvious thing. Johnson didn't question if Nogueira would show up come fight night. That may seem strange, given that Nogueira has withdrawn from four of his last six fights due to injury. He has competed just twice in the past three years. You'd think that kind of abysmal track record would lead Johnson to be skeptical about who he would ultimately be fighting at UFC on read news >>
