WATCH: Demetrious Johnson wins with last-second submission

Next to losing there is only one thing in an MMA fight that sucks more--putting the power to decide who wins in the hands of the judges. How many times have we watched a fight and thought there was no way in hell one guy could lose, but somehow the judges--who must have been watching another fight--called it for the other guy. Frustrating as hell, right?Maybe Demetrious Johnson was...

Then I watched it a couple of times and started to notice how Jabouin quit throwing back and was putting up the "please Hammer don't hurt me"...

UFC: Conner McGregor the next superstar

Connor jumps into the stands to confront Aldo after Conner’s UFC Fight Night win. Connor “Notorious” McGregor has taken the media world by storm.

UFC 186 is the worst PPV on paper

I wrote a blog earlier this month stating that the Floyd Mayweather vs Manny Pacquiao fight could be the last great pay-per-view event…  UFC 186, however, might be the lamest pay-per-view on paper in UFC history. The main event of UFC 186 features Demetrious “Mighty Mouse” Johnson vs. Kyoji Horiguchi.  Don’t worry readers if you haven’t heard of them, it’s only...

Mike Swick: I'm the healthiest I've ever been

After his loss to Paulo Thiago in 2010, Mike Swick took two and a half years off due to his esophageal spasm condition.

WATCH: Luke Rockhold chokes out Lyoto Machida

Luke Rockhold (pictured) may have entered Saturday’s scrap against Lyoto Machida as the fourth ranked UFC middleweight, but he likely left the cage as the division’s top contender. Sorry, Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza.  Machida fell to the mat in the opening round after eating a punch (it also looked like he slipped at the same time), but “The Dragon” was never able to recover...

Floyd Mayweather, some would argue, is the best boxer in the world. Others have proclaimed him the greatest of all time. Still, he’s just a boxer.   Conor McGregor, on the other hand, is an entirely different animal. Literally. McGregor is the biggest thing going in UFC, and trains, in part, by studying the way different animals move and hunt their prey. He’s a terrifying...
