Thousands of MMA fans piled into the Talking Stick Resort Arena (formerly the US Airways Center) in Phoenix, Arizona, Saturday night expecting to see a stand-up battle between the two Dutchmen.

A UFC heavyweight contender was born at UFC on Fox 13. A former champion was exposed. In the night's main event from Phoenix, Junior dos Santos met his equal in Stipe Miocic. Miocic took the fight to dos Santos early and often, cracking the former champion with hard punches and avoiding any serious punishment himself until the championship rounds. Dos Santos did not falter. He did not fall. He's the toughest heavyweight in the UFC, and Miocic was not the man to put him away. Still, the punishmen read news >>

The UFC heavyweight division has a way of muddying its own waters. Perhaps in a perfect world—or just a normal weight class—Saturday night’s network television main event pitting No. 2 Junior dos Santos against No. 4 Stipe Miocic would have all the trappings of a title eliminator. Miocic is 6-1 in the UFC (he hasn’t lost since Sept. 2012), and a victory over dos Santos would summarily check the last box on his application for top-contender status. Meanwhile, Dos Santos is a former champion whose read news >>

Travis "Hapa" Browne took care of Brendan "Big Brown" Schaub at UFC 181 Saturday evening, and it didn't even look difficult for him. After a feeling-out process early, Browne uncorked a right uppercut as Schaub lunged forward, catching his foe on the chin and sending the fighter hurtling to the canvas. From there, Browne continued to land shots, scoring with heavy ground-and-pound before eventually securing mount and, later, back mount. Once in that position, Schaub had no answers, and referee M read news >>
