In a UFC 184 battle between struggling welterweight veterans, Jake Ellenberger took on Josh Koscheck. Both men entered riding three-fight losing streaks defined by devastating stoppages and were likely to be released from the UFC with another loss. In a fairly slow first round, Ellenberger asserted himself with superior striking. While Koscheck flashed some of his once-elite wrestling skills, he was unable to assert his will. The second round, however, saw Ellenberger lock up a standing guilloti read news >>

UFC Fight Night 60's main event, a welterweight tilt between struggling former champion Ben Henderson and hotshot prospect Brandon Thatch, did not disappoint. The fight itself made no sense from a matchmaking perspective, but that did not keep the one they call "Smooth" and the Muay Thai specialist from putting on an exciting fight. The first two rounds, as anyone who has seen Henderson would expect, were defined by measured striking exchanges. Henderson's quickness and accuracy kept him on even read news >>

UFC 183 is over with, and Anderson Silva and Nick Diaz gave the fans what they paid for. "The Spider" reared back. He ducked, he weaved, he counter-punched. Stockton's native son taunted. He pressed forward, winged punches and showed no respect to one of MMA's scariest figures. As many expected, Silva's elusiveness and counter-punching proved to be the difference. While Silva absorbed some strikes, he landed his long, heavy punches and sliced up the left side of Diaz's face. That translated to a read news >>

By the time Kelvin Gastelum and Tyron Woodley entered the Octagon at UFC 183, it had been quite a week. Gastelum had missed weight by an almost comically large amount, while Woodley stood to be the biggest test of his young career. The two managed to make it to the fight, but by the time they did, it seemed most of the crowd had already checked out. It wasn’t the most exciting fight in UFC history, but there have definitely been worse despite how loudly and quickly it was booed by those in atten read news >>

Dan Henderson returned to the middleweight ranks at UFC on Fox 14, his first UFC fight at that weight since 2009 and his legendary eradication of Michael Bisping. Unfortunately for the 44-year-old legend, this time didn’t play out so favorably. Gegard Mousasi reminded the world why he’s one of the best at 185 pounds, stopping Henderson with a nasty right hook and leaving him with no clear path going forward. It was the fourth straight fight where Hendo was put in some type of serious trouble or read news >>

Alexander Gustafsson and Anthony "Rumble" Johnson aren't the only light heavyweights on Saturday's UFC on Fox 14 card. Phil Davis and Ryan Bader also faced off to determine which longtime gatekeeper would make a run at the strap. Both men are known for their wrestling, but as we often see, that makes for a striking-heavy endeavor. The fight was slow and methodical, with neither fighter establishing (or even attempting) a great deal of offense. In the end, Bader would get the better end of a spli read news >>
