Thinking back on UFC 168, there was no way Anderson Silva was going to go out kicking and screaming like that. That broken leg he suffered against Chris Weidman was a little too human for any kind of GOAT. This is a guy who transcends things…from big moments to the sport itself, from Usher’s advice to fractured fibulas. He was always going to come back and face some Nick Diaz or other on some must-see Saturday night in the not so distant future."The Spider" has made a career out of just that sor read news >>

While the merits of the UFC allowing unproven professional wrestler CM Punk to scratch an itch by competing in the Octagon have been argued, most of the signings detractors at least agree the added attention will bring eyes to the sport. Speaking with Brazilian Jiu Jitsu black belt Eddie Bravo, UFC commentator Joe Rogan gave his take on whether or not the move was truly good for the promotion. "Business? It depends on what your business is," said Rogan. "This is what I believe, honestly. All bul read news >>

It's hard to talk about UFC 182 without thinking of the epic main event. If there's ever been a UFC pay-per-view worth purchasing on the strength of the feature bout alone, it's UFC 182. Jon "Bones" Jones and Daniel Cormier not only hate each other, but they also are the two best fighters in the division. The fight has everything an MMA fan could dream of. Bleacher Report's Jeremy Botter talks about the fascinating confrontation: That said, there are two other fights with the potential to be exp read news >>

Saying that he thought the UFC was "beyond this" and that Bellator signing CM Punk "I could understand," the UFC Welterweight wishes he could get in the cage with the WWE star. Matt Brown faces Tarec Saffiedine in the headliner of the aptly named February UFC Fight Night: Brown vs. Saffiedine but he'd be happy to give fans a two-fer if the commission and CM Punk would only agree. Here's what he told the MMA Great Debate podcast (via MMA Fighting): "I thought the sport, the UFC, itself, was beyon read news >>

Anderson Silva says there are 'a lot of homosexuals in mixed martial arts,' but that doesn't bother him in the least. If one were to be honest, the sport of mixed martial arts doesn't have a fantastic track record when it comes to dealing with the LGBT community. Homophobic slurs are still common in MMA (I don't remember the last time a Michael Bisping fight didn't involve him throwing out a slur) and the treatment of the situation usually involves lame "it doesn't mean that when I use it" excus read news >>

LAS VEGAS - Jon Jones is close to the point in his title reign that all long-term champions inevitably reach, the one in which they start thinking about superfights. But Jones, who defends his UFC light heavyweight championship against Daniel Cormier in the main event of UFC 182 on Jan. 3, is forever ruling out talk one of such fight right away: Don't expect him to square off with Anderson Silva. "I would never want to fight Anderson. Never. Ever," Jones said at Monday's UFC media day. Jones, wh read news >>

I've been thinking about championships lately. More specifically, I've been thinking about championships and how, given the multiple injuries suffered by UFC title-holders in recent years, we are nearing a time when the Ultimate Fighting Championship should create set-in-stone rules on how to deal with champions who are on the shelf for an extended period of time. Call it the Dominick Cruz Rule. It is no fun, the idea of stripping a champion of the belt he fairly won. And I don't make this sugge read news >>

So much for momentum. Former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) heavyweight titleholder Andrei Arlovski is back in the official top-10 rankings at 265 pounds, clocking in at No. 7 after disposing of Antonio Silva last month in Brazil. Stepping on "Bigfoot" marked his fourth win in a row. But don't expect him to jump back into the cage anytime soon, according to Ariel Helwani on UFC Tonight: "Andrei Arlovski's manager just told me he just got shoulder surgery and will be out six to eight weeks. read news >>

T.J. Dillashaw isn't thinking about the past. Granted, the date (May 24, 2014) will forever be burned in his brain as the night he shocked the MMA world by doing the unthinkable and upsetting and dethroning the reigning bantamweight king. It will be remembered as the night he transitioned from a prospect filled with potential to a certified UFC title holder—and in doing so—brought a tremendous sense of pride to his Team Alpha Male brethren and ended the gym's seemingly never-ending and highly pu read news >>

Well, this is one way to go about it. It seems like every time the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) holds an event, the winner in the headlining fight is asked about a potential title shot, even if it doesn't make a whole lot of sense to do so. Take, for instance, the case of Ryan Bader, who defeated Ovince St. Preux via unanimous decision (watch the highlights here) to close out UFC Fight Night 47 last night (Aug. 16, 2014) in Bangor, Maine. This was the the #8 ranked light heavyweight beat read news >>

MMA Legend Fedor Emelianenko is not coming out of retirement but he did mention he would have wanted to face Cain Veasquez in his prime. While Fedor Emelianenko is not coming out of retirement, he was not shy to nominate UFC heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez as the opponent he would have hypothetically liked to face if he was in his athletic prime. The MMA legend, who was in Calgary promoting Amateur MMA, suggested Velasquez simply because of his technical prowess and strategic mindset. "Cain read news >>
