On day two, reality started to set in. Tuesday’s confirmation that Anderson Silva and Nick Diaz will fight next January at UFC 183 was pure joy, pure wonder. Despite the fact MMA fans had already been buzzing about the possibility for nearly five days, hearing UFC president Dana White actually say the words during an afternoon edition of SportsCenter set off a kind of punch-drunk bliss in fight circles. Did that just happen? Could this be real life? It was a nice feeling. Warm. Fuzzy. But we mov read news >>

Most MMA fans, no matter the age, get the opportunity to gaze upon a genuine rivalry between two elite fighters in their lifetime. They square off back and forth, split victories and keep fans hungry. That’s like winning $15 on a $1 scratcher from the gas station across the street. Few fight fans ever get the opportunity to be witness to two of the best fight camps in the world—stocked to the brim with elite fighters—showcasing a similar rivalry. That’s like landing the rich girl, or guy, who's read news >>

For the first time in two years, Chris Weidman will enter the Octagon against somebody not named Anderson Silva. The middleweight champion was originally scheduled to take on the surging Vitor Belfort at UFC 173. Elevated testosterone levels from Belfort and surgery on both of Weidman’s knees changed all of that.

The truth of the matter is, it was all very confusing. Renan Barao was either the greatest pound-for-pound fighter in the mixed techniques, or he wasn’t even the best fighter at Nova Uniao. He was either hissing like Nosferatu whenever a beam of sunlight crossed his darkness, or he was just a simple man of extraordinary gifts. He was either riding a 35-fight unbeaten streak, or something like 28…or possibly 33, none of us could rightly say. Even the reports of him washing his clothes in the sink read news >>

It doesn't matter whether he's a favorite or an underdog. Matt Brown keeps on winning. At UFC Fight Night 40 on Saturday, "The Immortal" broke down Erick Silva to earn a seventh consecutive win in the welterweight division.

It's a waste of everyone's time to listen to it, and a waste of breath for those involved to even talk about it. Everything about it is just plain silly. On one hand you have Jones, a dominant champion presently on track to be the greatest fighter who ever lived by the end of 2015. On the other you have Liddell, a guy who was read news >>
