    I wonder if the "non-juicing era" will actually lead to fewer injury cancellations. The purpose of steroids and PEDs is to help your body recover so you can train longer and harder, right? Maybe...

    I'd never be truly shocked by the revelation of any fighter using PEDs, but learning Penn ever took performance-enhancers would be a real surprise. If anything, he struck me as a guy who believed...

    THIS. It boggles my mind how Marvin and many other MMA fans have such a chip on their shoulders obsessing over how MMA fighters are not just tougher than boxers, but tougher than any other athlete. ...

    It's basically been all downhill for Davis ever since his legendary "Mr. Wonderful" submission win.

    Also, keep in mind that some of those layoffs by champions last year weren't solely due to injuries. Pettis could've fought much earlier than December but the fight with Gilbert was put off so the...

    I shudder to think what Dos Santos' chin will look like once it's finally cracked. That poor guy has been taking loads of punishment over his last several fights and surviving on willpower alone. I...

    The UFC actually can't just turn a pay-per-view show into a free card, as per their contracts with PPV operators. Put yourself in the shoes of the PPV company --- if a show is canceled outright,...

    TWO comments? Looks like everyone was watching the Oscars tonight. Birdman TKO'ed the seven other movies to win Best Picture.

    Yeah, can you believe that the sport with over a century's worth of a head start has more revenue than the sport/promotion that came into being 22 years ago? Hard to believe.

    This is going to be one of those times when the title fight in the larger weight class isn't the main event. There's going to be so much hype behind Aldo/McGregor that it absolutely has to be the...

    One good aspect of the new drug testing....the UFC will now be forced to once again stack pay-per-view cards for fear that one failed PED test can ruin a main event and ruin a whole show.

    You could fill a top-five controversial decisions with just Diego Sanchez fights alone.

    I remember the first Penn/Edgar as kind of a nothing fight either way, where there didn't seem to be a...

    But if you're taking a PED that allows you to recover better, that allows you to train more and get better prepared for a match. If one fighter is on such a PED and his opponent isn't, then...

    Man, Faber vs. Edgar should be awesome. Both guys are kind of stuck in their divisions (Edgar's already lost to Aldo, Faber won't fight his teammate and has already lost twice to Barao) so they...

    Except if the UFC took this 'like a pro sport' route, they'd crash and burn. The big sports leagues still rely on big-name superstars (LeBron, Durant, Brady, Manning, etc.) to drive casual fan...

    Pulling Rory off a card in Canada doesn't seem too bright. I can only imagine this means he's getting Lawler instead on a future show.

    I guess it depends on how long Weidman will be sidelined. If he'll just be out a couple of months, then I can see Vitor wanting to wait and face the guy he's been preparing to fight. If Weidman...

    There's an unexpected replacement. Not only is Bendo stepping up on short notice, but up a weight class?? Wonder if this is just a one-time thing to bail out the card or a permanent move?
