Hey, remember when UFC President Dana White said Anderson Silva vs. Nick Diaz was a dumb idea and would never happen? We can file that away next to "pay-per-view (PPV) price hike is a one-time thing" as we kick off a curious 2015 fight campaign. I'll try to keep my bitching to a minimum because let's face it, no matter how ridiculous this fight is from a matchmaking perspective, it serves as a conduit for the return of two of the biggest stars in mixed martial arts (MMA) -- albeit for entirely d read news >>

If heart could be measured, then there is no doubt that Chuck O’Neil would be one of the wealthiest fighters on the planet. As one of the few remaining fighters carrying the Forrest Griffin gene, O’Neil built his MMA career as a blood-and-guts fighter, always willing to push forward regardless of the circumstances. For years, he was the temporary fix for “Just Bleed” addicts looking to see a good old-fashioned street brawl. Throwing caution to the wind is by and large what put O’Neil on the map read news >>

Mirsad Bektic doesn’t remember much about Bosnia and Herzegovina. He was 3 when his family left near the height of the Bosnian War, too young to understand anything except that the fighting had gotten too bad and it was time to go.Filed under: News, UFC read news >>

Remember last year when Joe Soto took a title fight with TJ Dillashaw on 24 hours notice? This time the weight cut isn't to blame, and it's not the main event of the evening, but some MMA fans will feel deja vu all the same. In the most bizarre of circumstances, Brian Cobb was injured on a treadmill the day before the weigh-in, and pulled out of the co-main event of WSOF 17 "Shields vs. Foster" due to a blown knee. The glitch in the matrix comes courtesy of lightweight prelim fighter Joe Condon, read news >>

Remember when Conor McGregor headed down to Brazil to watch Jose Aldo fight and got heckled at the fan Q&A? Well, now it's Aldo's turn. "Junior" is scheduled to hold court this afternoon (Sat., Jan. 17, 2015) inside the Orpheum Theater in Boston, Massachusetts (hopefully you have tickets), which kicks off at 2 p.m. ET sharp using the embedded video player above. Considering how many Irish fans are in "Beantown" -- and how many bars will be open for business -- this might be one of those events y read news >>

Remember that “other” Jon Jones, the one who’s been such a good sport about being bashed for the UFC light heavyweight champion’s transgressions? Well it looks like Reebok is taking care of him, too.Filed under: News, UFC read news >>

Hey, remember when Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) President Dana White said raising the price of the UFC 168 pay-per-view (PPV) event was a one-time thing? LOL. The world's largest combat sports promotion kicked off 2015 by kicking up its price for UFC 182: "Jones vs. Cormier," according to MMA Payout, and will follow suit with UFC 183: "Silva vs. Diaz" and UFC 184: "Weidman vs. Belfort." Don't worry guys, it's just a three-time thing! Jose Mendoza adds context: Essentially, the UFC is app read news >>

Remember when the Jets and the Sharks had their epic showdown at the big dance? Yeah, this is nothing like that, though it almost unfolded like the Greasers vs. Socs. Fortunately, cooler heads (i.e. hotel security) prevailed and no punches were thrown. So, who was the mystery man behind the videos? Team "DC" coach and former UFC fighter Tyson Griffin, who shared these little nuggets on Instagram (via MMA Junkie). Team Jon Jones vs. Team Daniel Cormier. Always nice to see @rosendo_sanchez and Mal read news >>

Remember when Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) President Dana White celebrated his role in the bust of the (expletive) nerds who took down UFC.com? They're back. Either that, or another group of hackers with the same handle -- "Anonymous" -- is behind the latest data breach that affects mixed martial arts (MMA) fans worldwide. But unfortunately they're not alone, as thousands of usernames and passwords -- along with credit card numbers -- were reportedly made public from a variety of online read news >>

Hey, remember Doug Sparks from The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 19? I didn't either, until I went back to my episode one recap from last July, and realized it was the dipwad with the fuzzy ears on his head. There was some weird backstory about his parents having sex with a polar bear or something, but he tapped out and was bounced from the show before we could dig any deeper. Not that anyone was complaining. That was the last we heard of Sparks ... until now. And he's back in the headlines for his end read news >>

Remember all the times in the old UFC that someone gave up for no visible reason? Let's talk about that, and give someone an award, too. Submissions were something of a rarity in the older days of the UFC. There were very fighters capable of executing the holds since few had actual training. Aside from the obvious men like Ken Shamrock, Royce Gracie, and Dan Severn, a legit finishing hold was a beauty to see in the octagon. On the flip side, while technical finishing holds were uncommon, fighter read news >>

Remember the fighters that almost became a big thing? We do, and you can vote on who is the best faded star from old school MMA history here! Competitors came and went in the early UFC, especially in the events that the OSMMA Review has covered so far. There were many repeat offenders who came back to fight again, and some of them even became legends in the sport and had great careers. Others disappeared completely, never returning to the cage again (often because they did not belong there in th read news >>
