MEXICO CITY -- Fewer things turn a good mood sour faster than evoking the name of Ireland's favorite son in the presence of a featherweight who happens to not be named Conor McGregor. You can see it in the eyes: that flash of anger, the immediate scowl, the inevitable caricature of an Irish impression that's soon to follow. Though as many would say, it simply is what it is. McGregor's verbal recklessness by itself may not be enough, but when paired with a formidable set of skills, the marriage h read news >>

Say what you want about lippy Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) middleweight Michael Bisping, but there is no denying he's a tough guy to finish. Coming into the UFC Fight Night 55 event on Friday night (Nov. 7, 2014), the brash Brit hadn't been submitted in 31 professional mixed martial arts (MMA) fights. Then came Luke Rockhold. The former Strikeforce middleweight champion -- who clearly refuted this claim -- dominated "The Count" en route to a submission victory in the UFC Fight Pass main read news >>

Until the very end, there were many who wanted to believe in Chael Sonnen. You've heard me say this before, but I will say it again: Sonnen is one of the nicest people you'll meet in mixed martial arts. I mean genuinely nice. He looks you in the eye when he shakes your hand, and he goes out of his way to help people in need. He doesn't want people to talk about those moments, because they go against the "character" he has cultivated over the past few years, and that character is what took him fr read news >>

Like at welterweight, a looming shadow has finally been lifted at middleweight. Anderson Silva's seven-year reign, one in which he amassed 14 stoppages and 10 title defenses, was particularly brutal. Not only did he terrorize every fighter in the world at 185 pounds, but he jumped up to light heavyweight to pick off two UFC Hall of Famers. Along the way he polarized fans with his cocky demeanor and trash-talking nonchalance in the cage. For years, despite his athletic excellence, he failed to wo read news >>

He was once an afterthought of sorts. Rory MacDonald has made significant progress each time he's stepped in the Octagon and has always been considered a fighter who might easily be a future champion. But Georges St-Pierre casts a long and imposing shadow, and much of that darkness fell on MacDonald. The pair were (and still are) teammates, which meant that MacDonald's hopes of rising to greatness were stifled. He didn't want to fight his training partner, sure, but St-Pierre and MacDonald are f read news >>

With UFC Fight Night 42 on the horizon, we take a closer look at perhaps the toughest out in all of mixed martial arts (MMA). Ben Henderson has fought nine times for Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) and six times for World Extreme Cagefighting (WEC), dating back to January of 2009. And in that span of 15 mixed martial arts (MMA) fights, the only man to defeat him has been Anthony Pettis. Nate Diaz couldn't do it. Neither could former UFC lightweight champion Frankie Edgar, or ex-Strikeforce read news >>

Renan Barao would rather wait his turn in the chilled shadow of Jose Aldo than step into the cage with someone he looks to as a brother. The UFC bantamweight champ is without a doubt the most underappreciated champion in MMA history. His résumé speaks for itself—undefeated for nearly a decade with 22 straight wins. These are feats comparable to heavyweight legend Fedor Emelianenko. At only 27 years old, Barao really does have the entire world in the palm of his hands. “I just keep working hard, read news >>

"There's a shadow just behind me, shrouding every step I take; Making every promise empty, pointing every finger at me. Waiting like a stalking butler ..." "I respected him a lot more before we fought. I'll tell you what, he has so much arrogance for someone who didn’t win.... I find it funny, because Gustafsson lost the fight fair and square. I will admit he won round one and round three, but that's it. I won the fight. I've never heard someone chirp so much who lost. I could see if I poked him read news >>
