UFC Fight Night 51 may not boast a lot of high-profile fights—no titles are on the line, and there are few Top 10 fighters on the card—but that doesn't mean the action has to suffer on Saturday night. Look to UFC 177 from just two weeks ago for proof. Restructuring led to a fairly underwhelming card and a pretty uneven main event between Joe Soto and champ T.J. Dillashaw, but the fights were tremendous, and it turned into a thoroughly entertaining night. With Brazil, where the atmosphere is alwa read news >>

Ronda Rousey spoke to Extra at the TUF 20 premiere, and gave her thoughts on the recent Ray Rice assault video. Ray Rice's actions have sent ripples throughout the sports world, as a clear indictment of pro sports culture's inability to take domestic violence seriously. The allegations leveled against him and the video evidence, that gave backbone to those allegations were basis for a paltry two game suspension from the NFL back in July.

There are a lot of ways to describe the way Tecia Torres fights but the most prominent word that comes to mind is aggressive. Coming in just north of the 5' mark, the South Florida representative has one of the most fitting nicknames in mixed martial arts as her fighting style certainly lives up to her "Tiny Tornado" moniker. The 25-year-old brings constant pressure from the opening bell until the last, and her brand of tenacity has served to overwhelm every opponent she's faced inside the cage. read news >>

I've seen a lot of MMA over the years. A lot. Putting together The MMA Encyclopedia, I watched footage from all over the world, from the despondently bad to the resplendently life-changing. And I've never seen anything quite like the pull-apart brawl between Tito Ortiz and Stephan Bonnar at Bellator 123. This segment was so bizarre, I didn't feel confident enough to discuss it alone. So, joining me round-table style, are Bleacher Report's lead MMA writer Jeremy Botter and MMA editor Brian Oswald read news >>

Nick Diaz has done a lot in his career. He's fought for a UFC title on a couple of occasions. He's held welterweight gold in another. He once found a way to distill violence on the scale of a global conflict into the most chaotic five minutes the sport has ever seen. He's retired. A couple of times. He's smoked lots (and lots) of marijuana, usually at inopportune times but almost invariably without regret. For a guy who just turned 31, he's really put together quite a run for himself. And that's read news >>

In the end, if you were looking for the UFC's brightest-shining stars, you were never going to find them on UFC 177. Not after The Curse waylaid Jon Jones and Alexander Gustafsson and Renan Barao and the rest. It just wasn't in the cards. The UFC didn't set out to turn this into one of the least desirable cards in the history of the promotion. It ended up that way because they were spreading things thinly. This practice appears to be over, at least when it comes to pay-per-view events; next mont read news >>
