LAS VEGAS -- Ian McCall has designs on doing for the flyweight division what Conor McGregor has done at featherweight. Before McGregor, 145 pounds was stagnant. The champion Jose Aldo is one of the best pound-for-pound fighters in the world and an all-time great. But he was lacking a foil until McGregor, the charismatic and cocky Irishman, showed up. You could say the same things about flyweight. Demetrious Johnson is superb at MMA -- a phenomenally skilled champion. He just has not become a nee read news >>

LOS ANGELES - Alexander Gustafsson respects Anthony Johnson's punching power. "He's a hell of a force," Gustafsson said. He saw what the fighter nicknamed "Rumble" did to Antonio Rogerio Nogueira last summer, after all. For that matter, Johnson has treated nearly everyone who's stepped in the cage with him over his past eight fights, all of which he's won, with five knockouts along the way. But that doesn't mean the Alliance MMA fighter is going to feel any fear when the duo square off on Saturd read news >>

Rarely does an event force would-be spectators to take part in an alternate reality, one that inexplicably forces the hands of time to decelerate, lengthening each passing day in its wake. But here we stand, a mere six days away from the end of said reality, six days ahead of one of the most anticipated bouts in recent memory between two of the very best fighters the UFC's light heavyweight division has ever had to offer. In the red corner stands Jon Jones, arguably the best pound-for-pound figh read news >>

The 12-year veteran is heading into the second title shot of his career. He spoke to MMAmania.com about moving to Las Vegas, his sons Mason and Atlas making him tougher, and why he has what it takes to thwart the leg-lock attacks of WSOF welterweight champion Rousimar Palhares at WSOF 16. Saying things have been a little hectic in the last year for Jon Fitch would be an understatement. The long-time MMA veteran moved away from San Jose to Syracuse, NY, at the beginning of 2014, then back to San read news >>

Anderson "The Spider" Silva is rocketing low kicks with impressive velocity ahead of his UFC 183 main event against Nick Diaz on January 31, and that's a big deal. As MMA fans will remember, Silva's last performance ended disastrously. After losing to current UFC middleweight champion Chris Weidman at UFC 162 via knockout, Silva strolled into his UFC 168 rematch in December of 2013 against Weidman with a renewed focus and drive. He looked sharp and determined. There was no more "clowning around" read news >>

It looks like we won't be seeing Ian McCall vs. John Lineker on Saturday night in Uberlandia, Brazil. When John Lineker missed weight on his first attempt (before making the flyweight limit on the 2nd try an hour later), Ian McCall responded by drinking coconut water while on the scale and still weighing in at 126 lbs. It was an obvious rib at Lineker for his repeated weight cutting problems, but the main focus was on their pivotal co-main event meeting tomorrow night at UFC Fight Night in Uberl read news >>
