2014 did not see a lot of title changes in the UFC. The 12 pounds of gold will have only been wrapped around five new waists by the end of the year. Johny Hendricks won the vacant welterweight belt at the beginning of the year, but Robbie Lawler took the belt away from him at the beginning of December. T.J. Dillashaw upset Renan Barao to claim the bantamweight belt, and Fabricio Werdum took home the interim heavyweight belt at UFC 180. This Friday, a belt will be awarded on the inaugural women's read news >>

Check out who the Bloody Elbow staff is predicting to win each fight on tomorrow night's UFC Fight Night: Edgar vs. Swanson in Austin, Texas. Frankie Edgar vs. Cub Swanson Mookie Alexander: Hard to get a gauge on Edgar at FW when his one fight against a clear elite 145er ended in a loss to Aldo almost two years ago. Dominating BJ Penn's passive twin and outpointing Charles Oliveira don't do much for me, but skillwise this is probably Edgar's fight to lose. His boxing is more technical than Swans read news >>

Conor McGregor called his shot, predicting a first round knockout of Dustin Poirier and then coming through with a knockout in less than two minutes. Dustin Poirier came out against Conor McGregor at UFC 178 looking to knock the McGregor hype train off course. McGregor opened up with a wild hook kick and continued throwing a variety of spinning attacks, none of which really landed while Poirier landed leg kicks and started to slip in some solid punches. McGregor stung Poirier with a shot around read news >>

The first eight months of 2014 haven't been the most stellar for the UFC or its fans. We were supposed to be greeted into the new year with the return of its bantamweight champion—Dominick Cruz—only to have a groin tear force the former champion out of the bout and his grip off the title. So, yeah, that didn't happen. We were also supposed to see Jon Jones square off against the only man to challenge him inside of the Octagon in September, only to see Alexander Gustafsson pull out of the fight b read news >>

It's 2015. You've just traveled to work in your flying, water-powered car after eating a breakfast consisting of nutrient pills and Soylent Green. Your robot butler is cleaning the house, while you're punching your time at the office, plugging away for a cyborg boss on a sentient OS with the voice of Scarlett Johansson. Oh, and your office is on the moon. OK, actually most of that probably isn't going to happen a year from now. If we're being honest, probably none of that is going to happen a ye read news >>

UFC fans are sitting pretty. Even through the first eight months of the year, fans have already been fortunate enough to watch Renan Barao cement his dominance with a one-sided TKO victory against Urijah Faber in February, only to have T.J. Dillashaw put a jackhammer to Barao's credibility as the champion with an even more one-sided five-round beating in May. They've been fortunate enough to continue to watch Ronda Rousey ascend into heights that only Jon Jones, Anderson Silva and Georges St-Pie read news >>

In boxing, it has often been used to identify bouts that could never happen: Muhammad Ali vs. Mike Tyson, Sugar Ray Robinson vs. Floyd Mayweather Jr., Roberto Duran vs. Manny Pacquiao.
