Over the past seven days, I have gone in hard on the UFC and its drug testing issues. I've said I believe they have a problem with performance enhancing drugs. I expressed my disappointment in their decision to cancel a planned comprehensive testing program that would randomly test every fighter on the UFC roster. And I spoke of my belief that, if things did not change, it could lead the UFC and mixed martial arts in the wrong direction. Today, we got our first glimpse that change might be on th read news >>

Dashon Johnson was once a promising MMA fighter from Escondido who was 9-0 as a pro. Two straight losses seemed to be reason enough for UFC to cut him and have him rebuild his career on the regional circuit, but new reasons for his release have emerged. He's not the most famous Johnson that UFC ever had under contract. Not Anthony "Rumble" Johnson, Demetrious "Mighty Mouse" Johnson, or even "Big" Lavar Johnson, but Dashon Johnson was once a promising mixed martial arts (MMA) fighter from Escondi read news >>

A new, promising Dagestani fighter makes his way to the UFC. Honestly, there's not a lot that I can write about Islam Makhachev that Patrick Wyman hasn't already.

That's a lot of high praise for the young fighter out of Dagestan. Makhachev's signing announcement was made by his longtime training partner Khabib Nurmagomedov via Sqor Sports. Nurmagome read news >>

I don't think they'll have a problem with that this time around, because it's lo read news >>
