Loudmouthed contender making fun of a Brazilian champion every chance he gets?

Former UFC featherweight title contender Ricardo Lamas has taken his talents outside of the Octagon to star as "The Delirious" Conrad McGillicutty—an Irish mixed martial artist. The video is meant as a parody to "The Notorious" Conor McGregor's rise to stardom in the UFC. Lamas pokes fun at several aspects of the Irishman's character—from his beard, morning routine and fashion choices to the fact McGregor has yet to fight a proven wrestler inside of the Octagon.

The news was first reported Tuesday by The Dallas Morning News. Though the specifics of their respective styles vary, in general, both are very inclined to look for a knockout. Overeem (38-14-1) had a successful kickboxing career before moving to MMA full-time in 2010. The heavily muscled Overeem has very strong muay th read news >>

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) lightweight Donald Cerrone is riding a five-fight winning streak that dates back to UFC 167. The last man to beat him, Rafael dos Anjos, is one of the few lightweights in UFC ranked ahead of him. Cerrone is currently No. 4 and looking for a title shot. To leapfrog to the top of that list -- ahead of Khabib Nurmagomedov, Gilbert Melendez, and the aforementioned Dos Anjos -- he'll have to beat No. 8-ranked Myles Jury at UFC 182, but he's not worried about the p read news >>

Is the praise being heaped on Robbie Lawler's 2014 campaign the result of the fun of literary narratives overselling what he's actually done? No, his story as MMA's Prodigal Son certainly makes what happened all the sweeter. Robbie Lawler is the Fighter of the Year in 2014, and he is so without much debate. There are other fighters with excellent resumes from this past calendar year (we'll get to them in a moment), but none as accomplished as Ruthless'. Lawler began the year building off the mom read news >>

Fighters differ in various ways. From natural size to evolved talent, aggressiveness to calculated precision, no two fighters are the same. That's what makes mixed martial arts such an enticing sport—one that envelops such a wide range of knockout artists, submission experts and bona fide assassins. But when it comes down to strictly entertaining the masses, some fighters are just more pleasing to watch than others. Chalk it up to their personalities, in-cage persona or late-round explosions, th read news >>
