The UFC is on a rare Sunday this weekend, as the company returns to Brazil with UFC Fight Night 61. Headlined by Frank Mir and Antonio Silva, the card includes some contenders in their respective divisions. Before that headliner, we have the prelims. Every fight has at least one Brazilian fighter in it, highlighting the local talent and up-and-coming fighters. I had a perfect record of 4-0 with my UFC Fight Night 60 picks. We will look to build on that impressive record, as we have six bouts thi read news >>

Bellator 133 offered a rare look at the reported salaries of Bellator fighters. Bellator is a company that has traditionally run most of their shows on reservations or in states in which the athletic commissions don't publicly release info related to salaries or medical suspensions. But since Scott Coker took over the promotion from Bjorn Rebney, they're more likely to run California shows since that is Coker's backyard. That was the case with Bellator 133, which went down in Fresno. The Califor read news >>

In a rare show of solidarity, the MMA community nearly unilaterally told 2014 not to let the door bump its behind on the way out. It had not been a good dozen months for the sport, and we were eager for change. We'd hoped for better things from the new year, but so far it seems 2015 has displayed the same sickly pallor and funky odor of its predecessor. Already we've lost some high-profile fights to injury, and the one epic barnburner we did get was immediately overshadowed by a failed drug test read news >>

Submission whiz Shinya Aoki landed a rare twister submission during the IGF NYE event in Japan. Japan's Mixed Martial Arts tradition every New Year's Eve has been home to several classic moments in the sport's history. While the spectacle isn't as big as it once was, it continues on and is still where some of the best fighters from the country ply their trade on a much bigger stage. On 2014's year-ender, there are two large shows going head-to-head in Japan. DEEP is hosting a title clash between read news >>

It’s a rare occurrence when high expectations are met, let alone surpassed; yet that is what we expect from the upcoming bout at UFC 182 between Jon Jones and Daniel Cormier. On January 3, 2015, the Light Heavyweight title is on the line, in addition to the champion's growing claim to the pound-for-pound throne. Even without their mutual rancor, their bout has all the makings of either an epic clash or a sadly conservative collaboration. Sometimes, when the stakes are high and equal to the oppos read news >>

ALBUQUERQUE, NM -- Say what you will about Jon Jones, but it's rare to see the UFC's light heavyweight champion caught in the theatrical world of ‘beef' quite like he is with UFC 182 rival Daniel Cormier. In fact, only twice before have we even seen Jones approach something like this. First with Quinton "Rampage" Jackson, though that relationship always seemed more snippy than anything. The second time was Rashad Evans, and that one was bad. A jilted former training partner who bickered endlessl read news >>

It’s rare to see a fighter’s stock rise after a loss, but that is precisely what appears to have happened to Stipe Miocic after his career-shortening slugfest with Junior Dos Santos at UFC on Fox 13. Few gave the part-time firefighter much of a chance leading up to the bout, reasoning that the former UFC heavyweight champion’s considerable strengths would likely prove to be a stylistic nightmare. However, the opening two rounds for the 32-year-old Miocic were less a nightmare and more a dream of read news >>

It’s rare that you see an interview stray into the disquieting realm of an intervention, but that’s (essentially) what happened when Joe Rogan visited The Fighter and the Kid podcast this week. If you haven’t seen it, check it out here. Start around the 14-minute mark. One of its hosts happens to be Brendan Schaub (The Fighter), who lost this week via TKO to Travis Browne at UFC 181. Schaub sat idly as Rogan broke through the barriers of polite conversation and told him -- using the Browne fight read news >>

LAS VEGAS - Stories don't usually play out this way in MMA. This is a fast-moving, brutal buzzsaw of a sport. There's little time for nostalgia and even less for sentiment. For every tale of Randy Couture coming out of retirement, slaying the giant, and winning the heavyweight title, there seem to be a hundred Gray Maynards, guys who were steps away from the mountaintop who found themselves tossed on the scrap heap before they knew what hit them. And that's what makes "Ruthless" Robbie Lawler's read news >>
