In the short documented history of mixed martial arts, age has always been a strange thing. Randy Couture was 43 years old when he beat Tim Sylvia at UFC 68, laughing in the face of those who believed him to be a holdover from the age of Pankration. Vitor Belfort at 37 is still known as "The Phenom," because he did crazy things when he first entered the sport at 19. The UFC as a whole won’t turn 21 until next month. The greatest MMA promotion is going global in 2014 and yet it isn’t even old eno read news >>

"The Pitbull" was able to get medically cleared, but this can't be good for Overeem's reputation, which is currently on life support. The hits keep on coming for Alistair Overeem. Not long after former Blackzilian teammate Anthony Johnson accused "The Reem" of purposely hurting Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Light Heavyweight Champion Jon Jones during training, Andrei Arlovski has come out and pretty much confirmed "Rumble's" claims. Speaking to SportsRu (via Bloody Elbow), Arlovski says t read news >>
