After a long, circuitous path to Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC), former female professional boxing sensation, Holly Holm, made her Octagon debut tonight (Sat., Feb. 28, 2015) against Raquel Pennington in the UFC 184 co-main event inside Staples Center in Los Angeles, California. It was worth the wait. Holm, who was noticeably nervous during the in-ring announcements, came out in a low stance, firing a left hand that missed.

It didn't take long for the picture to become clear in the welterweight fight between Alan Jouban and Richard Walsh: The fight was quickly turning into a Muay Thai war. But that's when Jouban turned on the afterburners. The Black House fighter picked up the pace and put away the Sydney native in short order on Saturday night at UFC 184. The Los Angeles-based Jouban scored the TKO win at Staples Center in just 2:19. "He's a game opponent, and physically he was very strong," Jouban said. "His team read news >>

Each time we've watched Rousey defend her UFC women’s bantamweight title—as she will against Cat Zingano on Saturday at UFC 184—we've been haunted by fea read news >>

UFC 184 may be limping and exhausted, but at least the finish line is in sight. At this point, Ronda Rousey’s women’s bantamweight title defense against Cat Zingano will do nicely as Saturday night’s main event. The much-ballyhooed debut of Holly Holm in the co-main won’t be anything to sneeze at, either. It’ll all be fine, it’ll all be fun, even if it’s not exactly what we expected. This event was once slated to be a middleweight showcase—featuring the long-awaited title clash between Chris Wei read news >>

Welcome back, Paul Daley. You punched your own ticket out. But now, you're back on American soil, back on basic cable, back below the brighter sections of the limelight. For fight fans, that's cause for a tip of the cap—and a scratch of the head. When he takes the cage this Friday to face Andre Santos at Bellator 134, the British welterweight (35-13-2) will still be fairly young at 32. With 26 career knockouts to his name, including in each of his last six victories, he still seems to have the s read news >>

Michael Johnson still has a long road in front of him before he earns a shot at the UFC lightweight title. Given his forward progress against Edson Barboza at Fight Night 61, however, he seems capable of covering that distance fairly expeditiously. Johnson’s pressure told the tale on Sunday, as he got in Barboza’s face early and stayed there for three full rounds en route to a unanimous-decision victory (29-28, 30-27 x 2). The win extended his current streak to four, and it will likely move him read news >>
