A long and harrowing journey grew even longer on July 5, 2014, when just hours before his against-all-odds return from potentially career-ending heart troubles, UFC heavyweight Stefan Struve suffered a setback that derailed a year's worth of work and worry. The seven-footer, who had been diagnosed with an enlarged heart and leaking aortic valve in August 2013, fainted in the locker room prior to his UFC 175 comeback against Matt Mitrione. Just like that, the feel-good bout was cancelled, and Str read news >>

Four years ago, Mark Hunt was getting submitted by Sean McCorkle on the prelims. Now, Hunt is a Top 10 heavyweight who became the first fighter to knock Roy Nelson out in a UFC bout on Saturday. The victory put Hunt back in the running for a title shot in the heavyweight division and proved he's not even close to being done at 40 years old.

UFC 178 on Saturday may be headlined by Demetrious Johnson and Chris Cariaso, but it's not the whole story. In fact, it may not be the most enthralling fight on the card. That distinction may land upon a main card bout between Dustin Poirier and Conor McGregor. It is a featherweight bout with high implications that could establish one of the next men to jump into the title picture. There is also some animosity. McGregor is a showman and a seller, while Poirier is a no-nonsense bayou boy who has read news >>

Fights are great. Well, professional fights are. No one wants to watch two idiots sloppily brawling outside a fast-food joint at 2 a.m. No one wants to be those idiots either, come to think of it. But when combat is done well, handled by the professionals and celebrated by thousands in the stands and perhaps millions watching at home, there are few things better. Except for fight hype when Michael Bisping is involved. Most reasonable fans would trade the last 10 Francis Carmont fights for one fi read news >>

Chances are you probably did a double-take when you saw Ben Rothwell and Alistair Overeem take center of the Octagon at UFC Fight Night 50 earlier this month. The heavyweight fighters, already gargantuan in size, seemed bigger. A lot bigger. No, Rothwell and Overeem didn't balloon in size before this fight (Overeem actually came in smaller than he usually does). This Octagon was smaller—exactly five feet smaller. Towering in at 6'4'' and hitting the scales just within heavyweight confines, you t read news >>
