Urijah Faber has reached a point in his MMA career where he can say and talk about literally anything he wants. The former WEC champion and multi-time UFC title contender recently appeared on an episode of Submission Radio to talk about a number of subjects. While he doesn’t have a fight lined up, “The California […]

Having just finished watching the first trailer for Burning Angel's much talked-about Ronda Rousey porn parody, Ronda ArouseMe: Grounded and Pounded, I am irate, Nation. Not because it contains absolutely zero nudity, and not because of any personal bias I have against star Kleio Valentien since she slapped that restraining order on me, but because my long and detailed list of spot-on casting suggestions for the project was completely, inexplicably ignored.
It's as if ArouseMe director Joanna Angel didn't appreciate or even take notice of the countless hours I clearly spent researching and drafting up that list, requiring no less than three recuperative naps in the process. Did they think I was only after a few extra clicks on a once mid-tier MMA blog, and not auditioning for a position in the multi-billion dollar industry that is porn casting? This was supposed to be *my* moment, god dammit! This was my chance to be a somebody!! (*kicks can*)
All that said, I'm sure there are a handful of you who'd still like to see the trailer for Ronda ArouseMe regardless of the fact that it took a steaming dump on my dreams, so check it out after the jump.

It may have taken two extra years, a failed drug test, and a series of tough, tough losses on both sides of the equation, but it looks like we will finally be seeing Junior Dos Santos and Alistair Overeem throw down after all.
The announcement came via the UFC last night:
It’s the most heated rivalry in the heavyweight division today, and on Saturday, Dec. 19, Junior Dos Santos and Alistair Overeem settle the score in the co-main event of UFC Fight Night at Amway Center in Orlando, Florida.
In the FOX-televised card’s main event, Donald "Cowboy" Cerrone challenges for a UFC title for the first time when he battles lightweight champion Rafael dos Anjos in a highly-anticipated rematch.

With no UFC this weekend, Bellator takes center stage with an Octagon veteran in the main event. Bellator 141 goes down Friday night from Temecula, California and the Pechanga Resort and Casino with Melvin Guillard making his promotional debut vs. Brandon Girtz. Guillard has fought for both the UFC and World Series of Fighting before, […]

On the heels of a technical draw with Khabib Nurmagomedov's crew in the WSOF lobby, it appears that Nate Diaz is once again ready to do some fighting *inside* the octagon. You know, for money this time, because apparently the royalty checks he's collecting for being the first guy to use the middle finger as a taunt aren't quite cutting it.
A little over a year removed from his last actual in-ring confrontation (a one-sided decision loss to Rafael Dos Anjos at UFC on FOX 13), Diaz will return to the octagon at UFC on FOX 17 in December, facing rising contender turned recent robbery victim Michael Johnson.

Last November, Colby Covington packed up his bags and headed to Brazil. Covington scored a third round submission victory over Wagner Silva to begin the action from Uberlandia, and proceeded to stick around and watch three more key welterweight scraps later in the night. One of those featured Covington’s UFC 194 opponent, Warlley Alves, who […]

Fight Night 74 Highlights/Results: Oliveira Tears His Esophagus, Perez Retires, Cote & Burkman Go to War + More
Fight Night 74 was a night full of surprises, and that's not just referring to the fact that seven underdogs came out victorious on Sunday night, or the fact that the highly-anticipated main event ended before it ever got started. No, the biggest shock of the night came in the form of 26-year old Frankie Perez, who followed up an impressive (if not necessarily surprising) KO of Sam Stout by retiring in the ring. Check out the video above.
"I train with the best team on the planet" said Perez, "I have the utmost confidence to beat anybody in this division. (But) me being 26, this is my first win in the UFC and my last. I’m done after this. I’ve brought my dreams to come true and I’m on to the next chapter in my life. I’m done putting my family and my body through all this.”
It was an incredibly honorable moment for Perez, which could only mean that one of the UFC's analysts for the evening, Michael Bisping, could only lob insults aimed Perez's "cajones" when discussing it with Dominick Cruz in the studio afterward. Thankfully, Cruz set the record straight by both lauding Perez's discipline and shitting on Bisping's gatekeeper status/lack of two functional eyes.

After a long hiatus in terms of their usual scheduling, the Octagon returned Sunday night with UFC Fight Night 74. Max Holloway was declared the winner of the main event after an injury to Charles Oliveira ended the contest early in the first. Oliveira appeared to hurt his left shoulder after going in for a […]

Jessica Andrade will replace Liz Carmouche and meet Raquel Pennington at UFC 191, the promotion announced recently. Set for September 5 from Las Vegas, the event features a flyweight title fight between Demetrious Johnson and John Dodson. Andrade (13-4) improved to 4-2 inside the Octagon with a victory over Sarah Moras recently. Pennington (5-5) has […]
For a while there, it seemed as if we were all but destined to see Ronda Rousey take on her arch-rival not named Cyborg for a third time following their respective wins over Bethe Correia and Jessica Eye, but today brings word of a fight many of us probably didn't see coming.
During an appearance on Good Morning America earlier today, Rousey herself made the announcement that her next title defense won't be against Miesha Tate, nor will it be against Cyborg, but against former pro boxer/kickboxer turned undefeated MMA fighter Holly Holm, at UFC 195. Or to put it another way: The lamb has passed through the gate. It has come to the killing floor. Its blind eyes see nothing of the horrors to come.

Frank Mir and Andrei Arlovski have a lot in common. They're both over six feet tall, they were both born in 1979, and they both recently used Antonio "Bifgoot" Silva as a stepping stone for their careers. (Ed note: Click here to celebrate that sweet burn with me.)
Less than a year ago, it looked like Mir all but destined to wind up alongside his former rival in the "forced retirement" line, and now, he's looking at a potential title shot if he is victorious over Arlovski, whom himself just defeated a heavily-favored top 5 opponent in his last contest. The two veteran heavyweights will do battle at UFC 191: Johnson vs. Dodson 2 in just a couple weeks in a fight that has damn near everyone foaming at the mouth in anticipation. Everyone except Frank Mir, that is.

The UFC is finally going to hit Melbourne, Australia – and hit it hard. UFC 193 will take place November 15 inside the Etihad Stadium. It marks the first event to be held in Melbourne and just the third stadium show for the promotion. In the main event, Robbie Lawler defends his welterweight title against […]
(McCrory channels Mark Hunt with a walk-off knockout of Brennan Ward at Bellator 123. Bonus points go to whoever decided on Jumanji drums as the background music.)
Following a six year absence from the octagon, Tamdan McCrory has returned, babayyy!!! All hail #TeamBarnCat!!
For those of you who aren't familiar with McCrory's story, it's perhaps one of the best in recent memory. McCrory first entered the UFC back in 2007, where his unusual, "nerdy" look and 6' 4" frame immediately singled him out as a unique fighter in the promotion's welterweight division. Of course, putting away a veteran of the game like Pete Spratt via triangle choke in his promotional debut was also a surefire way to get noticed.
McCrory would pick up wins over Luke Cummo and Ryan Madigan during his two-year UFC tenure, but losses to Akihiro Gono, Dustin Hazelett, and finally John Howard would see him released from the promotion in August of 2009. McCrory would not be seen nor heard from again for the next five years, which, according to his recent interview with MMAFighting, was never really a part of his plan:

***Late last night, former light heavyweight title challenger Anthony Johnson took to Twitter and Facebook to vent his frustrations regarding an "ugly woman at the gym" who was "stretching where people are supposed to lift." It was an incredibly poor lapse in judgement for Johnson, who has a long and very public history with domestic violence, and he has wisely since deleted the posts. But in the hopes of curbing Johnson -- or any other MMA fighters, really -- from posting something incredibly stupid and/or defamatory on social media in the future, we've written the following open letter.***

(There's probably a fight happening somewhere in this picture, but I'll be damned if I can see anything but Mike Beltran's awesome beard. Look at how it flows with the wind, Nation, like a field of wheat or those giant rubber wipers at a carwash that you would always pretend were octopus tentacles when you were a kid. Remember being that age, your mind full of wonder and excitement at even the simplest of things? Now there is only cynicism. Cynicism and self-loathing brought about by your lack of a beard as cool as Mike Beltran's.................................

We know that declaring any UFC card in today's era as "stacked" is all but the kiss of death, but you guys, UFC 194 is stacked. That it only has three fights booked so far is a testament to how stacked it is, and unfortunately also a testament to how doomed it is to lose at least one of those fights within the coming weeks.
But for now, the December 12th-scheduled card will feature a pair of title fights in Conor McGregor vs. Jose Aldo and Chris Weidman vs. Taylor Swift's BFF. As if that wasn't enough, the UFC announced earlier today that another key middleweight matchup will take place on the card as well: 4th-ranked Yoel Romero vs. 3rd-ranked Ronaldo "Jacare" Souza.

Ryan Bader felt like he had done more than enough to warrant a shot at UFC light heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier next. Instead, UFC officials tabbed Alexander Gustafsson for Cormier and gave “Darth” Rashad Evans. Both fights are scheduled to be part of the UFC 192 lineup from Houston. Bader, a former Ultimate Fighter winner […]
In perhaps the most bizarre entry in the I Didn't Know I Was Pregnant canon since the show's inception, Brazilian fighter Kinberly (not a typo) Novaes recently competed, and won, a strawweight title fight in Brazil while 12 weeks pregnant.
How did this happen? Well, it all started when Novaes signed her bout agreement for RFA 29: USA vs. Brazil against Jocelyn Jones Lybarger...

Kleio Valentien jumped at the opportunity to portray Ronda Rousey in an adult movie.

I used to love watching PRIDE. “I grew up first watching boxing and […]
