After much speculation, Rory MacDonald will not be getting his first title shot in the UFC.

Though there's been much speculation as to why Ronda Rousey's next bantamweight title defense against Cat Zingano was moved from Jan. 3 to Feb. 28, most of it has been off base. According to a report on UFC Tonight, the switch in date had less to do with Rousey's marketability as a headliner than it did a timetable for recovery. Zingano's management team told Ariel Helwani that the challenger has been dealing with a back injury, and wouldn't have been ready for UFC 182 in Las Vegas on Jan. 3. Th read news >>

Even after a week of speculation, public disputes and good, solid reporting by MMA’s best journalists, there is still a lot we don’t know about Cung Le’s positive drug test. At this point, though, the simple question of Le’s guilt or innocence has become secondary to the one thing we can say with absolute certainty: The UFC can’t continue to oversee its own drug-testing program. It needs help. Last week, the fight company self-reported that the 42-year-old Le tested positive for "an excess level read news >>

At this point, I'm nauseous from all of the breathless speculation about what's in store for Bellator's first foray into pay-per-view from fans and media alike. My longstanding position is the company isn't even close to ready for the climb, but the leap is happening, my (and your) analysis be damned. I'm as equally fatigued by the bold, public proclamations of boycotts of this Bellator event by both fans and media, as if solidarity in those ranks is some sort of statement of authenticity. It's read news >>

After 20 days of wild speculation and calculated innuendo, I honestly can’t decide if it’s more difficult to imagine a world where Ronda Rousey next defends her UFC women’s bantamweight title against Gina Carano or one where she doesn’t. At this point, both seem equally preposterous. And equally possible. In their unwavering refusal to die, rumors of Carano vs. Rousey officially became the Rasputin of unconfirmed MMA stories this week. Carano herself fanned the flames Monday, telling Fox Sports’ read news >>
