After hearing Gegard Mousasi explaining a down 2014 campaign due to 'being burnt out,' it was interesting to hear he'd be willing to jump back into action so soon. Mousasi credited his Jan. 24 victory over Dan Henderson at UFC on FOX 15 largely to his attitude, using his near five-month layoff to regain some hunger to compete.

UFC President Dana White once said soccer was the "least-talented sport on earth" and that it helped "pussify" America, but it happens to be a pretty big deal around the world, including Brazil. That's where UFC featherweight champion Jose Aldo participated in a charity match and showed Neymar a few of his trademarked leg kicks -- the less painful kind.
