But is trading punches with a former pro boxing champion the best strategy? Raquel Pennington may be the underdog against undefeated striking sensation Holly Holm, but that doesn't mean she's short on confidence heading into this weekend's (Sat., Feb. 28, 2015) women's bantamweight showdown at UFC 184 in Los Angeles, California.

But in one night, the law of averages got thrown for a loop like never before with 10 upsets in 11 fights. Bookmakers had a bad night as those who read news >>

Cody Garbrandt was installed as an underdog against Marcus Brimage at UFC 182, and that might have seemed fitting. Coming in, Garbrandt was an established underdog by circumstance. Anybody who knew him in his youth would have guessed he was more likely cut out for interrogation lights instead of spotlights. His father was an absentee ne’er-do-well who is currently behind bars in his native Ohio for a take-your-pick litany of crimes he committed. One of his uncles is in the clink, too. Prison was read news >>

As the main event of UFC 178 got underway, it was eerily quiet inside the MGM Grand Garden Arena. The Las Vegas faithful seemed drained of their energy even as the card was supposed to be hitting its culmination.

Johnson was quicker, stronger read news >>
