    Pettis' injury and now the TUF delay has really created a logjam in the 155-pound division. The Cerrone/Alvarez winner will get a title shot, Khabib and TJ Grant were both deserving of shots but are...

    I don't see the logic of putting Junior up against a fresh contender. HW needs all the new contenders it can find for Cain, so why potentially 'waste' one of the top options in Miocic by risking him...

    I love that Diaz went to a high school whose name sounds like 'Toke'

    Bigfoot is going to ruin him. I'm not sure why anyone would think Arlovski has a chance here --- he's been on the fringes of the fight game for years, while Bigfoot is arguably a top five...

    Here's the thing, the actual QUALITY of most of the UFC's cards this year has been pretty good. Despite the large number of cards, there are very few I've seen where I felt like I've wasted my time....

    You hit the nail on the head here. It blows my mind that the UFC has completely dropped the ball on marketing this next generation of fighters. I really think Dana fell in love with the...

    This is an interesting voting point that you see in other sports' HOFs. For instance, Gil Hodges was not quite good enough as a player to get into baseball's Hall, and he wasn't quite good enough as...

    In a world where the UFC wasn't trying to saturate the market, these fights would've been the undercard of UFC 177 with the title fight as the headliner.

    Hold the phone, Soto isn't nearly in those guys' class. Bump him back down to the #20-25 ranked guys and let him string a couple of wins together before tossing him back to the wolves.

    Full credit to Joe Soto, who went almost a full five rounds with a UFC champion on only 36 hours' notice. As others have noted, Soto gave TJ more of a fight than Barao did, though Dillashaw was...

    Wow, I thought you were just using comic exaggeration but the UFC actually has that many shows coming up. So dumb....expect at least two of those events to be wrecked or even canceled due to a...

    Man, this so-called PPV isn't even as good as the recent Fight Pass events. What an embarrassment for the UFC. How many shows have to get ruined by injuries before they finally wise up and scale...

    I feel bad for Jung, such a talented and exciting fighter but he just can't seem to stay healthy.

    The judge's name was Howard Hughes, so he was probably too busy drawing plans for the Spruce Goose to judge the fights.

    I don't think the stoppage was that bad. Bendo looked out...without the ref stepping in, he very likely would've just taken more shots and being knocked clean out. Now, I realize that 'very likely'...

    UFC China thoughts (spoilers)

    In my wildest dreams, I never would've thought I'd see 'Bisping over Le, TKO' as a result. Cung needs to retire, he was running solely on guts and fumes in there.

    Great win for Woodley to get...

    TJ Grant is still recovering from a concussion, sadly. Poor guy gets the chance of a lifetime and injuries screwed it up for him. Hopefully he's able to get healthy and get back in the cage, though...

    Nice boost for the doomed UFC 178 card, though in a weird way, I'm sad this fight is on that particular show. I would've much preferred seeing it have the possibility for five full rounds. Since we...

    Can't have these two getting heated at a press conference, it'd be embarrassing to see that PR guy easily hold them apart

    Well, there's another thin card torpedoed by injuries. Mighty Mouse vs. Cariaso isn't going to draw flies on PPV.

    I've never heard Goldberg call anything besides the UFC, so it's going to be odd hearing his voice on an NFL broadcast. That said, as the release notes, FOX has five main broadcast teams and then...

    Re-reading this thread was a nice trip down memory lane. It's even funnier with the hindsight of Cain destroying Dos Santos in their next two fights.

    It really comes down to that second round. I agree that GSP clearly won the 3rd and 5th, while Hendricks clearly won the 1st and 4th. Hendricks lands the big shots early in the 2nd and were it not...
