Weigh-ins for UFC 192 went down earlier today, and FightLine has complete results. In the main event, Daniel Cormier defends his light heavyweight title against Alexander Gustafsson. Cormier will be making his first title defense after winning the belt from Anthony Johnson earlier this year. “DC” weighed in at 205 pounds, while Gustafsson tipped the […]
We're just a few minutes out from the UFC 192 weigh-ins, and we've already seen our first casualty.
Yes, it appears that the weight-cutting woes of former welterweight champion Johny Hendricks have taken a far more serious turn, as "Bigg Rigg" was forced out of his co-main event title eliminator against Tyron Woodley earlier today after being hospitalized during the weight cutting process.
Details after the jump.

Former UFC champion BJ Penn is currently retired. However, the proud Hawaiian would end that retirement if famed trainer Mike Dolce brought one of his pupils inside the Octagon to face him. Appearing on Wednesday night’s edition of “UFC Tonight,” Penn stated that he would like to fight Lentz at featherweight. The 36-year-old retired after […]
Felice Herrig is one of the more well-known UFC strawweight fighters. And for good reason. Along with being a top challenger, Herrig also loves to show off her killer body. Recently, she conducted a photo shoot for “Muscle & Fitness,” and the gallery has been released: New @muscle_and_fitness photo gallery up http://www.muscleandfitness.com/athletes-celebrities/girls/felice-herrig-rocks-her-physique-outside-octagon A photo posted […]
To be completely honest, I had all but forgotten that the Super Fight League was still in business, what without the steady Bob Sapp and/or James Thompson freak show fights to draw eyes in and all. But with 43 events now under their belt, it's safe to say that India's top/only MMA promotion is still going as strong as their theme song suggests.
Over the weekend, SFL held its aforementioned 43rd event, "Collision Course," and in the evening's headlining bout -- a lightweight title fight between Jason Solomon and Amitesh Chaubey -- the challenger needed just 9 seconds to dispatch the champion with a hellacious right hand.

UFC strawweight contender Felice Herrig has never been afraid to use her sexuality as a marketing tool, and rightfully so. She's got a rockin' bod, for starters, and at 31 years old, she's been a fighter in the game for longer than 90% of her competition. Why not celebrate the fruits of all that labor, I guess is what I'm saying.
Her recent shoot with Muscle & Fitness magazine, however, took things to a whole. notha. level. Taking a temporary leave of absence from MMA ever since her loss to Paige VanZant in April, Herrig bared in all -- tastefully, of course -- in a pictorial that brings to mind Ronda Rousey's Maxim Hot 100 photos. I don't know why photographers seem to have such an obsession with hand wraps and nudity, but I fully endorse it for the time being.

It’s pay-per-view time once again for the Octagon, as UFC 192 takes place this Saturday night. Set for the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas, Daniel Cormier will make his first light heavyweight title defense against former contender Alexander Gustafsson. Cormier won the vacant belt with a victory over Anthony Johnson earlier this year after UFC […]
With all the vicious knockouts taking place at Fight Night 75 and Bellator 143 over the weekend, you'd think it would be damn near impossible for any non-combat sport to top MMA in terms of pure violence. But then, the work week rolls in and professional baseball somehow takes the cake.
In the 7th inning of last night's Cardinals-Pirates game, Pittsburgh third baseman Josh Harrison drilled a shot to center field, drawing in both center fielder Peter Bourjos and left fielder Stephen Piscotty in at break neck speed in an attempt to field the ball. Piscotty opted for a head first dive to make the play, while Bourjos went with a knee-first slide. The resulting collision was undeniably one of the most horrific knockouts in professional baseball history.

Fight Night 75 Highlights/Results: Barnett Decisions Nelson in Slugfest, Uriah Hall Scores the KO of the Century, + More
(via UFC on FOX)
The UFC returned to action on Sunday morning after a nearly unprecedented 3-week hiatus, delivering a star-studded(ish) card from Japan that saw Josh Barnett, a lover of Japanese culture if there ever was one, face off against Roy Nelson, inventor and sole proprietor of the "triple bacon cheeseburger" sushi roll, in the evening's main event.
Despite not competing in the cage since a quick KO loss to Travis Browne in December of 2013, Barnett showed up to the contest looking to be in the best shape of his life, and it paid benefits over the course of the five round affair. "The Warmaster" set a UFC heavyweight record 146 significant strikes and UFC record 95 significant clinch strikes en route to a decision victory over "Big Country," who you can guarantee got screwed out of a performance bonus by his good buddy Dana White when all was said and done.
Saitama, Japan played host to UFC Fight Night 75 Saturday evening, as heavyweights Josh Barnett and Roy Nelson rocked the Octagon. Barnett and Nelson went the full five rounds, as the former UFC champion earned a decision victory. Barnett moved to 11-2 in his last 13 with the win, remaining right on the cusp of […]

I can't even fathom what level of coward/scumbag/sadist you'd have to be to pick a fight with a blind kid, but as a guy who spends most of his days watching "street justice" videos, I'm *almost* glad the skater punk (pictured lying in a heap above) did, if only for the swift and brutal retribution he received as a result.

A key bantamweight contest highlights tonight’s Bellator 143 event, as Joe Warren battles LC Davis.

The Octagon returns to Japan this Saturday night with UFC Fight Night 75. In the main event, Josh Barnett and Roy Nelson collide in a scheduled five-round heavyweight contest.

One thing we overlooked in our gif-heavy recap of last weekend's MMA action was perhaps the most glaring error of judgement of them all -- aside from Bellator's decision to bench Linton Vassell for a medical suspension that he didn't have. It occurred during the featured bout of the prelims in a middleweight clash between Dagestani Vagab Vagabov and late-replacement opponent Brian Grinnell, and boy oh boy was it a humdinger of a douchenozzle move.

Quote(s) of the Day: Urijah Faber Lobs Racist, Sexist, Basically Everything-ist Accusations at Duane Ludwig
(I only counted 280 "likes" and 372 "dudes." No way that was actually Faber on the phone. via MMAFighting)
So as we all know, the fallout between Duane Ludwig and Team Alpha Male -- specifically, TAM leader Urijah Faber -- has been a bit heated, with both sides lobbing some pretty strong accusations at one another. First, Ludwig claimed that TJ Dillashaw was the only fighter on the team who trained "like a champion." Faber then hit back, calling Ludwig "difficult to deal with" and his eventual departure from the team "a breath of fresh air."
Recently, Ludwig attempted to apologize for his comments, while maintaining that Dillashaw "trained differently" than the rest of TAM.
"I say some stupid stuff sometimes," Ludwig said. "And they're training at their full potential. T.J. just really wants it. If you look at it in comparison, there's a difference. You can just see it, you can feel it. And it's just different with T.J."
When asked to respond to Ludwig's quote unquote apology on yesterday's MMA Hour, Faber had had enough, it seemed, and unleashed a barrage of harsh claims Ludwig's way in a lengthy, eye-opening interview.
Most MMA observers believe LC Davis’ upcoming Bellator 143 main event fight with former two-division champion Joe Warren is the biggest of his career. And Davis doesn’t disagree. However, the 34-year-old Kansas City-native sees his next fight as always being the biggest of his career – and that’s the way he’ll approach it. Davis and […]
With Bellator, Glory, RFA, WSOF, XFC, and damn-near any promotion *not* named UFC all holding events over the weekend, there was simply too much action for one understaffed and grossly underpaid MMA outlet to cover. So rather than give you long and boring results recaps of each event (that you've already read elsewhere), we're going to bring you the cream of the crop, the highlights of the highlights, in the form of these gifs, vines, and videos from each event. Capiche?
We begin with easily the most horrifying gif of the bunch, taken from Saturday’s XTreme Fighting Championships International 11 in Sao Paulo, Brazil. Just over a minute into a featherweight contest between Guilherme Faria and Missael Silva de Souza Falcao Feijao dos Santos Ruiz (or simply Silva for short), Faria unleashed a monster left hand that zombified his opponent, leaving Silva with the worst knockout face since that one Asian "Faces of Death" kickboxer. Had Silva opted to enjoy a post-fight wank session, there's not a doubt in my mind that this gif would already have a Potato Award locked up.
Check out a plethora of uber-violent gifs from WSOF, Bellator, and more after the jump.

Emotions were running high inside the Bellator cage Saturday night. And that was never-more-present than from Tito Ortiz. The former UFC light heavyweight champion appeared to be in complete control vs. Liam McGeary as the first round was coming to an end in their Bellator: Dynamite 1 main event for the title. Then, McGeary locked […]

"I watched one of the biggest names in the world of...any martial arts or any boxing or anything is Muhammad Ali."
"Ali was the first people's champ and he did great for his heritage and his race."
"To be even named...on that type of a level...If I can even walk in one of his footsteps, I've been an amazing job at mixed martial arts."
"Through the 18 years I've been competing, I think it's just self-right that...so many fans get back to me."
FYI, the question was "Why did you change your nickname?" Tito Ortiz >>>>>> Ms. Teen South Carolina
