Year in review time! Here, a look at the 5 most exciting boxers in 2014. December 31 is fast approaching, which means it's time to look back and reflect on the year that was. For boxing fans, that's not the most pleasant of tasks. That's because 2014 kind of sucked. After a tremendous 2013 that saw the HBO vs. Showtime war push both stations to stage numerous huge, exciting fights, everything this year fell flat. Gone was Danny Garcia vs. Lucas Matthysse in a battle of the division's most exciti read news >>

It was a long, crazy year of fights in mixed marital arts. Simply put, 2014 was busy and had no shortage of decisions left in the hands of the judges. Most of the time, the judges got it right.

2014 was not the best year for MMA. In particular, it wasn’t the best year for the UFC, but as goes the biggest tree in the forest, so goes the rest of the forest. It was a bizarre year rife with injuries, discontent among fighters and fans and even the occasional bout of litigation being threatened (or pending). These are not exactly the foundational components of a positive 365-day run. You should also remember that we all learn things over the course of a year. The UFC learned some things, th read news >>

Johnny Hendricks vs. Robbie Lawler. Chris Weidman vs. Lyoto Machida. Jose Aldo vs. Chad Mendes. Junior dos Santos vs. Stipe Miocic. Pat Curran vs. Daniel Straus. Five thrilling fights.

Bellator CEO, Scott Coker will be headed to Japan for New Year's Eve and plans to approach Fedor to gauge interest on a possible return to MMA action. Since taking over Bellator, Scott Coker has set about making changes and signing fighters that fans want to see (thank you so much for Manheof and Schilling). He has been very forthright about snatching up every free agent they can get their hands on, and will more than likely engage in legal warfare with the very formidable UFC over contract righ read news >>

In a year where "event" was often an overblown euphemism for "ordinary fight card," it’s tempting to point out the UFC’s return to Ireland as truly something extraordinary. There was Conor McGregor, the UFC’s finest coxcomb, standing out as the pride of a country in his fight against Diego Brandao. In the weeks leading up, it felt like Elvis returning to do a little fireside ditty at Graceland for a small group of Memphians. He had been out with an ACL, and the UFC catered his return to take pla read news >>

You can't take the sum total of an entire year, tie it up in a box and slap one label on it. Life is too complicated for such a simple procedure. Something's bound to break or ooze its way out. So it is for mixed martial arts. It's easy to look at all the downward-sloping trend lines and conclude, as some have, that the sport suffered a bit of a crash in 2014. It might be just as easy to point to a handful of great scraps and great stories and conclude, as some have, that this was another wonder read news >>
