And I'm pretty sure you won't hear any complaints from fans, either.
Former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) heavyweight titleholder Randy Couture was oh-so-close to having a 265-pound showdown against ex-PRIDE division kingpin Fedor Emelianenko, back in 2008 when "The Natural" tried to retire from UFC and move on to bigger and better things.
We all know how that turned out.
But that doesn't mean he has closed the door on a potential showdown against "The Last Emperor." Sure, both fighters a read news >>
Uh, guys? Guys?
Aren't we all forgetting something here?
It's pretty important, actually. Not, like, water and food important, but at least as important as remembering to turn off the stove after using it.
Well, at least in MMA terms it is.
What is it?
Well, it's the fact that Junior Dos Santos is still the second-best heavyweight on Earth, a proper star in Brazil with some crossover appeal in North America, and he'd probably be holding the title of "baddest man on the planet" in a world where C read news >>
By the time January 31st rolls around, nearly two full years will have passed since Nick Diaz publicly announced his retirement, then called for a rematch within the same two-minute post-fight interview at UFC 158. It was classic Diaz: brash but honest, an unscripted stream of consciousness underscoring an actual level of brilliance and understanding regarding the game around him.
Diaz held out for 16 months since that fateful night in Montreal. He wanted more money and he wanted another title s read news >>

So what comes after Robbie Lawler’s hard-fought and victorious UFC on FOX 12 main event? A title shot and the possibility of diabetes, it seems.Filed under: News, UFC read news >>
Michael Bisping's career has been a pretty interesting one when you really look at it.
He was a trailblazer in the UFC for fighters from the U.K., a winner of The Ultimate Fighter when that still meant something and a guy who spent the better part of a decade being reasonably considered as a fringe title contender.
Say what one will about the quality of his opponents (largely mediocre) or his likeability (limited to most), but he did something few men will do: stuck around in the UFC long enough read news >>
Straight and to the point.
Not a fan of Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) welterweight Matt Brown?
He probably doesn't give a f--k.
That's the vibe I got listening to his mixed martial arts (MMA) podcast (via FOX Sports), as he previews his upcoming showdown against Robbie Lawler in the main event of UFC on FOX 12, which takes place this Saturday night (July 26, 2014) in San Jose, California (preview).
His words. "I think I've learned over time like f--k it, I'm pretty f--king good at what I read news >>
It looks like a deal between women's MMA vanguard Gina Carano is close to getting done. And her first fight in the UFC could be against the the relay to her baton-passing, Ronda Rousey, who won an ESPY award on Wednesday for "Best Female Athlete." UFC president Dana White, while talking at the UFC Fight Night 46 pre-fight scrum, acknowledged that he and Carano will have an imminent discussion when he gets back from Dublin, Ireland this weekend.

Jessamyn Duke suffered a devastating defeat at UFC Fight Night 45 and also a pretty gruesome-looking injury.
The fighter posted an X-ray of the injury on her Instagram account. It's easy to see that it doesn't look like Duke will be stepping in the cage anytime soon. Despite the injury and the loss, Duke posted the image with a bit of humor.
"Prefight interview I said@lesliesmithmma had a brick head & could take a lot of punishment. Karma. #ufcfightnight45 #gunclub," wrote Duke.

Sometimes, the path is pretty clear when it comes to matchmaking in the UFC. Sometimes, two dogs are snarling at each other through the chain link, and you've just got to put them together and let them hash it out.
After UFC Fight Night 45 and the remarkable showing by one Donald Cerrone, it's pretty clear who he should fight next.
Prospect turned contender Khabib Nurmagomedov.
Cerrone looked excellent in stopping Jim Miller in Atlantic City on Wednesday night. He was smooth and confident, tackl read news >>
