Roufusport Head Coach Due Roufus believes Ben Askren will one day fight under the UFC banner. It has been a few months since the latest chapter of the Ben Askren - Dana White saga was written. Neither the UFC boss, nor the undefeated champion have seen eye to eye during their various quarrels, thus leading one to assume that Askren's window of opportunity to head to the UFC was quickly closing. Askren had one meeting with UFC officials before signing with One FC; it achieved very little and ende read news >>

NEW YORK -- Duke Roufus is in a tough position. He coaches Ben Askren and also has a great relationship with UFC president Dana White. Askren and White don't seem to see eye-to-eye, a fact you can extrapolate just from reading Askren's Twitter timeline. "I love both guys," Roufus said Monday at an Anthony Pettis media lunch to promote UFC 181. "I have so much respect for Dana, Lorenzo and Frank. I've told them so many times Roufusport wouldn't be around without them. I wouldn't be here without t read news >>

Stories sell in individual sports. Without 20 other people to take a piece of the blame or share a piece of the glory in your athletic pursuit of choice, you need to have something about you that resonates.If you don't, you'll be forgotten in a blink.And that story should be something beyond acting a fool and being praised unyieldingly for it.It should be more than breaking down language barriers with the use of a finger (no, not that finger).It should be real.

Earlier this week, surging featherweight phenom Conor McGregor promised an eventual move to the lightweight division, because he doesn't like making the brutal cut down to 145 pounds. But I don't think anyone was expecting it to be next month in Mexico. That's why most mixed martial arts (MMA) fans were caught off guard when the "Notorious" lightning rod announced he was fighting Diego Sanchez at UFC 180, despite the fact that "The Nightmare" was already booked to throw hands opposite Norman Par read news >>

Chris Weidman said on Monday that he wanted to defend his UFC middleweight title against Vitor Belfort next, and it appears as if he'll get his wish. "We want to make that fight happen," UFC President Dana White told reporters in Dublin on Friday. "That's the next fight. That fight should've already happened before the Machida. That's the fight we want to do and that's the fight that Chris Weidman wants. I love this kid calling out Vitor. "The champ wants to fight Vitor Belfort, man. I don't bla read news >>

Assuming "The California Kid" meets him halfway. Decisions, decisions. A lot of crazy things could start happening in the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) featherweight division, depending on whether or not current champion, Jose Aldo, can recover from his latest neck injury to meet the unofficial deadline handed down by Lorenzo Fertitta.

The fix may soon be in, according to one former employee. The issue isn't whether you're paranoid Lenny. The issue is whether you're paranoid enough. Former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) welterweight number one contender, Jon Fitch, is speaking out against his old employer, as it continues to devalue fighters it deems "boring" ... to the point where top-ranked fighters like Jake Shields are out of work. Unlike World Series of Fighting (WSOF), Fitch tells Bloody Elbow, a promotion which ha read news >>
