If more fighters took the same kind of public stance on performance-enhancing drugs as UFC middleweight Tim Kennedy, the sport of mixed martial arts might be better off. Not everybody can be Kennedy, of course. He is nearly one of a kind: a cerebral and talented fighter who is willing to speak his mind. He is a special forces operator who still, 12 years after beginning his professional mixed martial arts career, still does sporadic "work" for the United States government. What kind of work, Ken read news >>

MEXICO CITY -- Fewer things turn a good mood sour faster than evoking the name of Ireland's favorite son in the presence of a featherweight who happens to not be named Conor McGregor. You can see it in the eyes: that flash of anger, the immediate scowl, the inevitable caricature of an Irish impression that's soon to follow. Though as many would say, it simply is what it is. McGregor's verbal recklessness by itself may not be enough, but when paired with a formidable set of skills, the marriage h read news >>

He wants to fight a top welterweight, and he is not wrong to demand such a fight. He is one of the biggest draws in the entire organization, and the UFC needs draws. Who should Diaz draw in his return fight? Last week, I suggested the perfect fight would be a rematch with Robbie Lawler, but the UFC scheduled Lawler for a bout against read news >>
