After six years outside the organization, a fighter has made his way back to the big show. It's something of a remarkable statement against the odds that Roan Carneiro is back in the UFC. Cut in 2008 after a 2-3 stint in the UFC, Carneiro has been wandering the regional wastelands for the past half decade, in search of a way back to the top. Stints in Shine Fights, United Glory, and Road FC eventually led him to one of the biggest US regional shows of 2014, Battlegrounds MMA 5: One Night Elimina read news >>

PHOENIX, Ariz. -- For six years, a UFC title shot has eluded Rafael dos Anjos. No longer. Following the Brazilian's lopsided victory over Nate Diaz at UFC on FOX 13, UFC President Dana White announced at Saturday night's post-fight press conference that dos Anjos, rather than injured No. 1 ranked Khabib Nurmagomedov, will be the next man to challenge lightweight champion Anthony Pettis. "Pettis texted me right after the fight and said ‘wow, [dos Anjos] murdered him. I'm ready to go. I'll fight e read news >>

Tyson Nam was brought in to lose the first time he fought in Brazil. Two years later, he wants another upset. Nam was an 11-4 prospect from Team Quest when he was booked to fight Eduardo Dantas, the then Bellator bantamweight champion. The Nova Uniao fighter, who had dominated his past seven opponents going into that bout, was waiting for the next Bellator tournament winner to put his title on the line, so the promotion let him compete in Brazil under the Shooto banner to stay active.

For more than seven years, welterweight Jon Fitch built a reputation as one of the UFC's toughest fighters. He fought a who's who of the world's best at 170 pounds—and beat almost all of them. Over the course of his tenure in the Octagon he went 14-3-1 with one no-contest. As records go, they don't get much better. But, in many ways, Fitch failed to make his way. His ground-centric style didn't make him any fans with the UFC brass. He got just a single opportunity at the UFC championship. He fai read news >>

This one only saw the two welterweights land 227 combined. It didn't come without controversy. In a sport where take read news >>
