Ronda Rousey is well on her way toward becoming the most dominant current UFC champion. On Saturday, Rousey defended her UFC belt in a fifth consecutive outing by submitting Cat Zingano. Though Zingano was widely considered to be the toughest challenger remaining for Rousey in the women's bantamweight division, the champion locked up another armbar in only 14 seconds. That gave Rousey the record for quickest win in a UFC championship bout. Was the win enough to move Rousey into the Top Five in t read news >>

The latest UFC rankings put women's bantamweight Holly Holm up in the top 10 after her split decision win over Raquel Pennington last Saturday.

Gleison Tibau talks about his plans to beat Tito Ortiz's record for most UFC appearances this year and also speaks about his disbelief at not having a spot in the UFC rankings. Gleison Tibau is somewhat of an anomaly, a fighter on the cusp of breaking the record for the most fights in UFC history, yet he is relatively unknown by casual fans. When he steps into the cage on Saturday night at UFC 184 against Tony Ferguson, he will be looking to change that. With 24 fights in the UFC thus far, Tibau read news >>

Throw away your stupid pound-for-pound rankings and flush the stinking all-time great debate down the toilet. The greatest fighter of all time is a woman, not a man, and her name is Ronda Rousey, according to Ronda Rousey. The reigning UFC women’s bantamweight champ has looked relatively unbeatable in the UFC, tossing grown women around like babies and ripping arms from torsos. It’s like a McDonald’s drive-thru in the division. Rousey has competed 10 times professionally, and all of those fights read news >>

At 28 years of age with 26 career fights and seven UFC featherweight title defenses behind him, Jose Aldo is opening up. Usually reserved and quiet before, during and after fights, Aldo has been caught peeping out of his shell in recent months. As he noted in a recent interview with Globo's Combate (transcribed and posted by Bloody Elbow's Fernando Arbex and Zane Simon), Aldo is "getting a taste" for the pre-fight bad-mouthing, undoubtedly a response to the many verbal jabs of his next challenge read news >>

Jose Aldo thinks that fans may be too quick to jump on MMA's PED problem, or athletes caught using. Jose Aldo is all set to take on Conor McGregor at UFC 189 this coming July. The two men will square off in Las Vegas for the 8th defense of Aldo's UFC featherweight title. A win for Aldo would keep him one behind Jon Jones (assuming Jones defends his title successfully at UFC 187) and Georges St-Pierre, and two defenses behind Anderson Silva on the all time list. But those numbers and that title d read news >>
