In the process of writing checks, signing new talent and showcasing them to the masses, the UFC is consistently in a state of wait and see. From young prospects to savvy veterans, well-crafted disciplines to natural athleticism, the plethora of UFC additions are as different as they are unpredictable. The gambl read news >>

UFC Senior Director of Public Relations Dave Sholler should probably take the night off when Anderson Silva and Nick Diaz finally meet for a customary staredown. Sholler was tossed aside like a rag doll back in August while attempting to stop a fight between light heavyweight champ Jon Jones and Daniel Cormier in the MGM Grand lobby in Las Vegas.

In the minds of many, the positive test confirmed suspicions voiced by both Bisping and fans after a strapping photo of the 42-year-old fighter circulated around the mixed martial arts community in the event's pre-fight lead-up. The UFC suspended Le for one y read news >>

Even after a week of speculation, public disputes and good, solid reporting by MMA’s best journalists, there is still a lot we don’t know about Cung Le’s positive drug test. At this point, though, the simple question of Le’s guilt or innocence has become secondary to the one thing we can say with absolute certainty: The UFC can’t continue to oversee its own drug-testing program.

That might explain the sounds of supplication wafting off of Park Avenue Friday morning. You can almost hear Roger Goodell pleading: Just get me to the weekend.

After all, Johnson had avoided such provocations up to that point in his second life as a reenergized UFC contender. So what changed? "I just wanted a yes or a no to the fight," Johnson explained to host Ariel Helwani on Monday's edition of The MMA Hour. "With him no read news >>
