Which is why Sanchez would even consider dropping to featherweight to face "Notorious." Conor McGregor gets under a lot of people's skin With his outspoken, take-no-prisoners attitude, "Notorious" has made more enemies than friends in his first years with Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC). But, it's not like he's in the hurt business to make buddies. Among the many included in the laundry list of fighters who have felt Conor's verbal wrath is Diego Sanchez. The fiery Irishman has already thre read news >>

The finger pointing continues. Following what looks to be the final bout of a Hall of Fame career, everyone who contributed to B.J. Penn's bizarre performance against Frankie Edgar in July has looked to distance themselves as much as possible. While Penn's altered striking style was blamed (perhaps unjustly so) on longtime trainer Jason Parillo, Penn has been critical of nutritionist Mike Dolce. After saying in August that he regretted ever hiring Dolce to help make the drop to featherweight, Pe read news >>

That was fast. Undefeated boxing sensation Floyd Mayweather Jr. promised combat sports fans "a big surprise" in 2015, to follow his unanimous decision win over Marcos Maidana last Sat. night (Sept. 13, 2014) inside MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. Watch the replay here. The first thought was a potential "super fight" against Filipino phenom Manny Pacquiao, and Mayweather added fuel to those fires just minutes after his victory over Maidana.

BJ "The Prodigy" Penn will not be calling up Mike Dolce for nutrition advice anytime soon. And even if he did, according to Penn, Dolce probably wouldn't answer his call. In a recent interview with BJPenn.com, The Prodigy opened up, detailing his issues with the creator of The Dolce Diet. "I figured that paying this guy $1,000 a day, I could just focus on the fight, and Dolce would focus on the food and weight cut," Penn said. "But I guess that was my job to focus on the food, and my weight, and read news >>

This week has not been kind to former Strikeforce heavyweight champ Alistair Overeem. Not only did he lose his UFC Fight Night 50 co-main event bout against Ben Rothwell, but it seems like everyone is jumping at the chance to kick the man while he's down. The latest to join in the discussion is Overeem's UFC 156 opponent, Antonio "Bigfoot" Silva. The Brazilian spoke to Combate (translated by The Underground and MMA Mania) about Overeem and had some less than flattering words. I was flying to Bra read news >>

It's not too often you hear the phrase "sore winner" used in combat sports (who complains about a win?) but Ben Rothwell is trying his hardest. Speaking to Submission Radio, Rothwell slammed his UFC Fight Night 50 opponent Alistair Overeem based on some tactics used by "The Reem." "I almost yelled at him in the fight," Rothwell said. "He was doing some real dirty push kicks to my knee, and it's just a dirty move. It's not honorable in my mind because this isn't street fighting." Overeem utilized read news >>

I'm gonna go out on a limb here and suggest that Ben Rothwell is not a fan of the oblique kick. If this complaint sounds familiar, it's because the push kick to the planted knee is a tactic seen from other fighters at the Jackson's MMA camp in Albuquerque, New Mexico. That includes UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones, who helped Alistair Overeem prepare for his bout at UFC Fight Night 50 last weekend in Mashantucket, Connecticut (results). And despite winning, Rothwell told Submission Radio read news >>

Because according to White, the statute of limitations has run out on any and all associations with ZUFFA. Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) President Dana White was on vacation in Bora Bora when news broke that one of his former fighters, "War Machine," was connected to the brutal assault that left pron star Christy Mack (and this guy) hospitalized with severe injuries (see the photos here).
