Video: Anderson Silva Gets His Leg Worked On

Absolutely no reason that Anderson Siva needed to come back from his brutal leg injury back at UFC 168 but his desire to recuperate and return to the cage is exactly the mentality that has allowed him to accomplish all that he has and be considered one of, if not the best fighter ever. All the best to Anderson, very excited to see him back in action  and I just hope standing across...

UFN 45 A.C. vs UFN 46 Dublin: Who Rocked it Harder?

UFC Fight Night 45 was one of the best cards in UFC history but that did not matter as the crowd in Dublin set the tone for UFC Fight Night 46. They were epic from the weigh-ins through the now almost mythical Conor McGregor victory. No matter what the card was like (it was pretty awesome in its own right) the crowd guaranteed that UFC 46 rocked harder. By the end of it we all wished...

 The UFC lightweight is curled up next to his young son on Saturday.  Baby Lauzon has had some health complications since being born, but not surprising to anyone who has seen his father fight, he is one tough kid.  Joe will be taking on fellow TUF competitor Michael Chiesa at the UFC’s upcoming card in Connecticut, and it is crazy to think Lauzon could fight any harder but...
