If Brock Lesner were to return to the UFC there are a few matchups that would make sense for him. Frank Mir is one of those potential opponents -- and that fact is not lost on the former UFC heavyweight champion. Mir said after his win over Antonio "Bigfoot" Silva on Sunday night that he would "absolutely" be interested in a trilogy bout with the pro-wrestling star if Lesnar re-signs with the UFC after his contract is up with WWE in the spring. "I think it would be a huge, big fight," Mir said a read news >>

Former Bellator MMA middleweight champion Alexander Shlemenko returned to the win column on Friday night (Feb. 13, 2015), as he landed a brutal spinning backfist/forearm that had Melvin Manhoef seeing stars as he fell to the mat unconscious in the main event of Bellator 133 on Spike TV live from Fresno, California. Manhoef was out the second the Russian's forearm smashed into his face, but Shleme read news >>

As Anthony Johnson's Blackzilians training partner, Rashad Evans knew his teammate had the tools to defeat Alexander Gustafsson. But he also thinks that Gustafsson was, in part, a victim of his own hype in the lead-up to Johnson's first-round TKO victory last month at UFC on FOX 13 in Stockholm. "One of the reasons why I felt AJ won was that Gustafsson, I like Gustafsson, Gustafsson is a cool guy and everything," Evans said on Monday's edition of The MMA Hour. "But I honestly felt like he actual read news >>

We knew it was happening, now we know when. Kinda-sorta. Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) will ask Jon Jones to defend his light heavyweight title against surging division No. 1 contender Anthony Johnson this spring, after "Rumble" punched his ticket -- by punching Alexander Gustafsson -- just last week in Stockholm, Sweden. "We're looking to do that fight in May," White told Jim Rome (via FOX Sports). "I don't have the exact date, but May." Jones jumped out to an early betting favorite. Whi read news >>

Felice Herrig has been a pro MMA fighter since Paige VanZant was 14 years old. Herrig has 15 career fights and also had a decorated kickboxing career. Does she represent too much, too soon for VanZant? The 20-year-old doesn't believe so. In fact, VanZant always had a feeling she and Herrig would compete against each other sooner or later. "I always had on the back of my mind that me and Felice would fight, because we're the hot girls in the sport," VanZant said with a laugh on Monday's The MMA H read news >>

Daniel Straus knew from the moment he left the cage that night in May 2011. Yes, he had just lost a unanimous decision to Patricio "Pitbull" Freire in Bellator's season four featherweight tournament final. But it was no blowout.

That next time comes at Bellator 132 on Jan. 16 at Pechanga Resort & Casino in Temecula, Calif., and the featherweight title is on the line. Since that loss to "Pitbull" in Lake Charles, La., Straus has won t read news >>

Josh Samman knew before he even got word from the UFC. "I think I just wrote the check," he told reporters Saturday night after his incredible head kick knockout of Eddie Gordon at UFC 181.
