Georgi Karakhanyan last appeared in Bellator back in 2011, and the reason he returns nearly four years later, at least in his mind, is because of what happened that night in Concho, Oklahoma. That was the night Karakhanyan got TKO’d by Patricio Freire at Bellator 37 in the featherweight tournament quarterfinal. In his five years of competing in cage fights to that point, he’d never been stopped before.Three years later, he says it’s all for the better. In his segment during "In Focus," the 29-ye read news >>

One Diaz problem after another is reason enough to drive any man up the wall, including UFC President Dana White. Nate Diaz, who is scheduled to fight Rafael dos Anjos at UFC on Fox 13, missed weight by four pounds at Friday’s official weigh-ins. This came after he no-showed for the event’s open workouts on Wednesday. While a win for dos Anjos could mean a shot at lightweight gold, Diaz will likely face longer odds of getting back into the title picture, according to White in an interview with F read news >>

"She's the former Invicta champ for a reason. Hats off to her, she's really good. It just wasn't my night tonight but I'll get better from this just like last time. I'm just gonna take a minute to take everything in. It was my UFC debut and there was a lot of pressure going into this. I just know that I'm a contender for a reason. I just gotta get back and get stronger and climb my way back to the top." TJ Dillashaw was knocked out in The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 14 Finale back in late 2011, and n read news >>

Former World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) superstar, CM Punk, is now a UFC fighter (more on that here). Even though company president Dana White is "skeptical" that Punk, 36, can find success inside the Octagon, he agreed to give him a shot as early as 2015. It's now or never! We watched Punk talk about his decision briefly last night (Sat., Dec. 6, 2014) at UFC 181 with Joe Rogan (watch it here), but now we get an extensive 20-minute interview courtesy of Ariel Helwani, who caught up with the read news >>

Georges St-Pierre may go down as one of the greatest mixed martial artists in the history of the sport. As multiple MMA writers continue to speculate whether or not he is going to return to the sport, he has taken on quite a different role. Instead of letting his fists do the talking, GSP has become a spokesman of sorts for the conversations that much of the MMA world has not wanted to discuss. It would be vital to see him stay in this position, regardless of whether he returns to competition or read news >>

"You know, part of the reason of why TJ is so great is that he really believes in himself and he's an amazing athlete. So we'd really have to ask Barao how he matches up with Aldo. I imagine that they're sparring partners and they work together and it can't be that one-sided. I think TJ has a great, great style for Jose Aldo. He likes to kick a lot as well and he's got good wrestling. I think the size is maybe the only thing against TJ in the favor of Aldo, but TJ will definitely be fast so I'll read news >>

According to Nick Diaz, the reason why the oft-talked-about superfight between Georges St-Pierre and Anderson Silva never took place was simply because St-Pierre was afraid. The former Strikeforce welterweight champ wasn’t too happy about St-Pierre’s recent comments regarding his upcoming middleweight bout with Silva on January 31. During an appearance on Chael Sonnen’s You’re Welcome podcast, St-Pierre claimed that Diaz “made a mistake” by accepting a fight with Silva at 185 pounds instead of a read news >>

Bobby Lashley has now won five in a row, including two under the Bellator banner in the past six weeks. His most recent victory, a technical knockout finish over jacked British import Karl Etherington, was a bit of a head scratcher, however, as the previously undefeated "Wrecking Machine" appeared to trip over his own two feet. Then once he flopped to the floor, he made no effort to get up or scramble, and just covered up while the part-time pro wrestler cracked his coconut. Bizarre. See who els read news >>

In mixed martial arts we have a bad tendency to write our narratives in stone, preferring pen even in the early stages of a fighter's career when a pencil would probably be a better choice. Oft-injured UFC champion Cain Velasquez is the perfect example. It seemed likely that Velasquez would become the best heavyweight fighter of all time. He ran through living legend Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira like an out-of-control bus, finished champion Brock Lesnar with a flurry of punches and put the kind of s read news >>
