Fabricio Werdum earned a shot at Cain Velasquez with his three fight winning since re-entering the UFC. Unfortunately, Cain’s shoulder injury will move that fight back; and it might even mean that Werdum will lose the shot completely.
Velasquez will likely be out of action until late 2014, which means Read the rest of this entry »

New ONE FC welterweight Ben Askren has had an interesting run lately. First he was released—as a reigning undefeated champion—by Bellator. Then he was courted by the UFC, who declined to sign him.

Some guy named Buzz Rothfield (who I think I’ll call Simple Jack) from The Daily Telegraph in Brisbane, Australia might be the only person on earth who didn’t like the Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva vs. Mark Hunt fight over the weekend. He wrote what I think was an article—but was basically a bunch of really uneducated questions directed at the sport of UFC that look like nothing more than bullet points Read the rest of this entry »
Mark Hunt and Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva put on a show for us this weekend. In what may have been the best heavyweight fight in UFC history, these two guys had everyone on the edge of their seats the entire 5 round fight. And they knew it too. Afterwards, the two hugged it out and seemed to know that they just put on a fight that will be Read the rest of this entry »
In case you didn’t know, Anderson Silva has a pretty big coming up later this month. The Spider will be trying to regain the belt he held for so long, by avenging his only loss in the UFC—ever—against Chris Weidman.
