When I spoke to Dan Hardy a few days before his UFC on FUEL TV 5 fight, I asked him what he made of the complaints from British fight fans that the UFC was ignoring them during its quest for global domination.
After all, there was a time when the U.K. saw two or three UFC events a year. Now it's down to one, and that one isn't always so star-studded (no offense to Mr. Hardy).
For the earliest adopters of the UFC's international efforts, how is it not supposed to feel like their fandom is read news >>

It doesn't take long when you sit down for your first Jon Jones fight to realize he's a little bit different than your average UFC fighter. While others mean-mug, flex, scream and smirk their way into the cage, Jones chooses a simple, yet decidedly unmasculine, cartwheel. At first glance, it seems soft. You might ask yourself: What's wrong with this guy? Does he even want to bang? Is this a fight or a gymnastics recital? Of course, when you think about it a bit, it's the most primal entrance of read news >>

Kelvin Gastelum's days of being a "long shot" are over. Granted, there was a time before The Ultimate Fighter and before he shocked the world by upsetting heavy favorite Uriah Hall in the finals of that tournament, where fight fans and critics could look at the young Arizona native and marvel at accomplishments that appeared to be above his talent level. The same could even be said for his next two victories inside the Octagon, as he made quick work out of Brian Melancon then struggled but ultim read news >>
Not too long ago, Sacramento's sports scene was looking bleak, with the NBA's Kings seeming destined to pack their bags and leave town. Nowadays? Things have taken a 180-degree turn. The Kings stayed put and have a new downtown arena in the works. Urijah Faber's Team Alpha Male gym boasts a UFC champion and could have two before the month is out. And the city's most recognizable fighter also has a hand in the city's bid to land a Major League Soccer expansion franchise. "It's been really excitin read news >>

The roster cuts continue as the UFC has released veteran middleweight Chris Camozzi. While most fans and media observers saw Chris Camozzi's last UFC fight with Rafael Natal as a decision win for Camozzi, two of the three cageside judges scored the September 5th contest in favor of Natal. It was Camozzi's 4th consecutive defeat, and it proved to be one loss too many. In a blog post penned by Camozzi on Performance MMA, he confirmed his UFC release: I knew this Natal fight was win or move on, pro read news >>

For a very long time, fans of the combative sports have been waiting (or even dying) for the UFC to go to Mexico. The reasoning is simple: Mexico is home to some of the greatest fighters in the world, hands down, and MMA fans would love to see fighters like them in the Octagon. To think that the next generation of great MMA fighters may come, at least in part, from Mexico—if they are inspired—is terribly exciting. But we knew that was never going to happen until Zuffa decided to go all-in when i read news >>
Not that long ago, Dong Hyun Kim was boring. Really boring. For a guy so thoroughly trained in the art of putting fist to face, he sure could suck the fun out of the process. He was far more keen to smother from the top position than he was to execute big throws or beautiful combinations. What's worse? No one even cared. He was among the most uninteresting undefeated prospects MMA had ever seen. Then Carlos Condit came along, flying through the air like some sort of lunatic samurai and taking Ki read news >>
