Saturday night's UFC 184 card marks the return of perhaps the biggest current star in mixed martial arts. Ronda Rousey, the women's bantamweight champion of the world, has never been tested in competition. She has only been out of the first round one time, and all 10 of her professional victories have come by stoppage. Rousey has been so dominant, in fact, that the UFC is now touting her in promotional materials as the most dominant female athlete ever. To discuss and debate whether Rousey deser read news >>

MMA Mania's Alex Schlinsky asked the question about whether UFC 184 can be a pay-per-view success with the women's bantamweight division as the marquee.

The next time Rousey headlined a card was against Sara McMann at UFC 170, and that brought in 350,000 buys. There are still those who believe that a women's headlined card will hurt women's MMA, per MMA Weekly. However, UFC 184 wil read news >>

Wednesday’s MMA "Question of the Day" was a big one. A weighty one, tunneling to the very heart of the sporting matters at hand. Did Nick Diaz or did Nick Diaz not catch his flight to Las Vegas? The stick of uncertainty first breached the hornet's nest in an official UFC fight-week video that strongly indicated a certain aircraft had departed a certain gate without a certain ticketed passenger, name of Diaz. Despite this indication, plenty of people claimed that not only were the Diaz wheels dow read news >>

This Saturday, the UFC heads to a massive indoor arena in Sweden for UFC on Fox 14. The main event features the ultra-smooth Alexander Gustafsson taking on Anthony Johnson, who used to be a welterweight but is now one of the most terrifying men in mixed martial arts. To the layman, this might feel like a setup for Gustafsson. Win the fight, get a rematch with Jon Jones. They faced off back in September 2013, and Gustafsson took Jones to the limit in the best fight of the year before losing a una read news >>

Between the Nevada Athletic Commission (NAC) hearings last week, and the results of Jon Jones' cocaine test, we're left right now with a very big question.One key answer was something few were aware of, and certainly not many fighters were surprised when it came out. While illegal from a ordinary citizen standpoint, cocaine use is perfectly fine for fighters from an athletic commission standpoint so long as it doesn't show up in a drug test taken on the day of the fight. In other words, as long read news >>

On Sunday, the Ultimate Fighting Championship presents a novelty Sunday card, following an extensive day of playoff football, in an effort designed to do one thing and one thing only: to make Conor McGregor a household name. McGregor is already one of the more notable fighters on the UFC roster, which is remarkable considering he has just four fights in the promotion. He has vaulted far past tenured fighters in terms of both salary and screen time. The advertising campaign for UFC Fight Night 59 read news >>
