    Even if Cormier loses here, he'll still get tons of slack due to his knee injury and taking the fight on relatively short notice (two months doesn't seem that short, but we're in the era of the...

    I think Poirer would give Conor a big wakeup call. I remember being down on Poirer following his loss to the Zombie, yet time has shown that there's no shame in losing to Jung (or Cub Swanson). ...

    Man, it's a shame this one was on Fight Pass since that was one of the best cards of the entire year. The fights were exciting enough on their own with lots of finishes and gutsy performances, and...

    Bad news for Cerrone/Khabib

    http://sports.yahoo.com/news/cowboy-cerrone-vs-khabib-nurmagomedov-171509591--mma.html

    Literally 20 minutes after they'd signed a contract, Nurmagomedov blew his knee out. Yikes. Hopefully the...

    The only flaw in this plan is that if McGregor and Nelson both end up progressing as expected and become title contenders, their eventual title bouts will have to be in the USA. It'd be unfair...

    I can believe it, we'll see the UFC debuts for Bill Anderson and Fedor Volkov against each other in February.

    Cariaso's claims to fame: he's the last guy to beat Mizugaki back when both were bantamweights, he took Michael McDonald to a split-decision loss at UFC 130 and he's on a three-fight win streak...

    Interesting matchup here. Normally I'd always pick against the guy coming off such a gigantic layoff and coming off so many injuries, but I've never been that impressed with Mizugaki. He hasn't...

    Correia/Baszler has indeed been moved to 176, though the Green/Trujillo and Formiga/Makovsky bouts have been shifted to the Fight Night show in Maine on August 16th. And if the threat of a card...

    Faber/Caceres seems like a huge mismatch but in theory, it made sense since Alex was a borderline top-10 bantamweight and Faber's already bought almost everyone else at 135. And hey, good on Caceres...

    The thing that keeps Edgar/Penn from being 'the worst decision ever' was that Edgar clearly whooped BJ's ass in the rematch. If Edgar had gotten killed in the rematch then yeah, you can say it's a...
  12. What If BJ Gets The Decision In The First Edgar Fight?

    To my mind, this stands out as one of the biggest what-if scenarios in MMA history? If the very close decision in Abu Dhabi goes the other way and Penn retains the title, the following things...

    If the UFC is really putting all three of these title bouts on the Jan. 3 card, wow. It also means that the three shows between this one and the November PPV in Mexico City will be ultra-thin as...

    I think I wrote a post about this a couple of years ago, but BJ Penn is one of the oddest contradictions in sports history. Has there ever been another athlete who is a clear hall-of-famer in their...

    You're right, I just rewatched GSP/Fitch and the second Cain/JDS fight again, and boy, all I could think when those fights were over was "This should totally be a draw, no man clearly won."

    Even though this fight was a clear win for Weidman, it was a great performance from Machida. That fourth round was one of the most exciting rounds I've seen all year, and the fifth was just a hair...

    Two possibilities here. The first is that the interim title is being used simply to help add prestige to what is otherwise now not a PPV-worthy main event. As lame as that is, I'd still prefer to...

    Absolutely true. Furthermore, McGregor's development into a big UFC draw won't be helped by him getting his ass thoroughly kicked, and Mendes would utterly destroy him. I like Conor's potential and...

    I'd be pretty surprised if Stephens wins this, though I guess he actually be the #1 contender in large part because Aldo has beaten so many of the other top 145-pounders already. Stephens would be a...
