Do you ever find yourself sitting around thinking "I wonder who the TUF lineal champs are right now"? No? Well neither did I until I saw my buddy @pdlmma on Twitter mentioning it today. It got me thinking that it would be a fun research project that could be turned into an article. Partially for my own amusement, and partially to help build fights. Build fights, you say?

The UFC's first trip to Brazil in 2015 will be remembered as a night of memorable upsets. Underdogs made statements with notable upsets in every fight but the night's first at UFC Fight Night 61: Bigfoot vs. Mir, including 37-year-old Marion Reneau, who submitted 10th-ranked women's featherweight Jessica Andrade on Sunday. In the same vein, a large group of favorites, like eighth-ranked bantamweight Iuri Alcantara, got knocked down a few pegs after suffering disappointing defeats. Although the p read news >>

Karim Zidan delves into the real winners and losers from Sunday’s UFC Fight Night: Bigfoot vs. Mir event from Porto Alegre, Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil.

We were in some rarefied air Saturday night for UFC Fight Night 60. No, really. Broomfield, Colorado, is 5,420 feet above sea level. That's more than a mile. That sort of altitude leaves even the best athletes searching for breath. So when Benson Henderson stepped in to face Brandon Thatch on two weeks' notice—and in the process jumped up to the welterweight division for the first time—the thin Rocky Mountain air was immediately the thickest narrative thread. Henderson is nobody's fool. Sure, th read news >>

Why is Greg Jackson so concerned about Anthony Johnson? Well, the general consensus heading into his pupil's light heavyweight title defense, presumably at UFC 187, is that Jon Jones will be facing the hardest puncher in the entire 205-pound weight class. Simply put: whatever "Rumble" hits, he destroys. "As far as raw power, I don't think anybody hits harder in the division than Johnson," Jackson told ESPN. "We've cornered against Johnson before, and he is such an impressive dude. His punch, goo read news >>

Is this 2009? Thales Leites is the real deal ladies and gentleman. Don't look now, but that one-dimensional jiu-jitsu aficionado that laid an egg against Anderson Silva in an Ultimate fighting Championship (UFC) middleweight title fight way back at UFC 97 has since gone 11-2, including eight straight victories -- five of which have come inside the Octagon. Leites defines resurgent contender in every sense of the word. Not only is the 33-year old the best he has ever been as a mixed martial artis read news >>
