After years of false starts and frustration, the sport remains illegal in the Empire State. But recent changes to the state's political landscape provide a new burst of hope, and UFC honchos are swooping in to take advantage. Fertitta, who co-owns UFC parent company Zuffa, was in the New York state capital of Albany on Tuesday to lobb read news >>

Women's MMA took a giant step forward in 2014, whether it was because there were a record number of fights, the re-inclusion of women in Bellator or The Ultimate Fighter 20 crowning a UFC strawweight champion.

Invicta got busy at the tail end of the year, and Cris "Cyborg" Justino failed in an a read news >>
