Perhaps there was a time when Quinton “Rampage” Jackson was worth the hassle. Maybe back in 2007—when he entered the UFC with three straight victories and won the light heavyweight championship from Chuck Liddell—it was possible to block out all his background noise. But those days are long gone now. Considering his advanced age and considerable baggage (warning: language NSFW), picking a fight over the 2015 version of Rampage Jackson just feels like a lot of trouble the embattled UFC doesn’t ne read news >>

It's worth appreciating in a year of potentially inadvisable expansion and devastating injury, not every event is affected negatively. Some manage to be engineered well and have all the requisite luck to maintain the proper amount of quality. When card integrity is held in place, there's not much to complain about.

It didn't take long to notice that there was something different about Matt Wiman when he entered the octagon at UFC Fight Night 57 in Austin last weekend. Was it his hair?

We're only posting this because USA TODAY thought it was worth putting it in our photo feed and it's gross and we thought you'd click on it. UFC Fight Night: Sydney will be remembered as fight card that featured a seemingly endless array of knockouts and submissions, yet it also gave MMA fans yet another toe injury to enjoy on Sunday afternoon. Although Michael Bisping can take solace in the fact that his toe injury was nowhere near as bad as Jon Jones' from UFC 159, at least the light-heavyweig read news >>

Former UFC heavyweight Shane Carwin still has visions of facing Brock Lesnar one more time. It's a common theme among fighters, that they have one particular fight, more than any other, that they'd like to do one more time.

Not after that horrific night last December, when Silva went in the cage to challenge Chris Weidman for the middleweight championship and ended up carted out of the arena and taken straight to the hospital while clutching his leg and screaming in pain.I'll never forget that night. I wrote about it in some detail immediately afterward, and the sound of Silva's leg bre read news >>

Back in the day, conventional wisdom said you'd be nuts to go head-to-head against the undisputed biggest draw in combat sports. Those of a certain age can remember when Mike Tyson was king. You didn't often see other major promoters attempt to run shows head-to-head the nights he fought, did you? But times have changed.
