AROUND THE WEB
BJ Penn’s swollen eye hasn’t even healed and people are already calling for his retirement. The UFC president along with several members of the media think it’s time for the Prodigy to step down which is odd considering I just watched a guy go three-rounds with the future of the division.
INTERESTING CAREER SWITCH
Rachel Wray, a former cheerleader for the Kansas City Chiefs, is pursuing a career in MMA and she appears to be faring well, winning her first two fights.
I’ll admit it, I got into Twitter because of the UFC, and the only reason I have Facebook is to watch UFC preliminary fights, so they got me. The UFC has been heralded as kings of social media, they dominate it. From the fighters to the PR people to the president himself, Dana White, everyone [...]
Mercedes Terrell is sort of a jack-of-all-trades in the world of modeling. She got her start modeling for a variety of car magazines and trade shows and eventually made her way into the MMA world with Bellator Fighting Championships. Don’t slouch at Mercedes for not being in the UFC. Bellator is the second largest MMA promotion company in the U.S. and has a lot of notority across...

Could the fight that enraptured an audience for almost all of 2011 actually happen in 2013? It looks like it. Dana White recently told MMAFighting.com that a fight has been offered to both “The King of PPV” Georges St. Pierre and Mr. 209 himself, Nick Diaz for UFC 158 March 16th in GSP’s home of [...]
For Matt Brown, Rory MacDonald, and Alexander Gustafsson, it was a night to remember. However, Mike Swick, BJ Penn, and Shogun Rua all had nights to forget Saturday night, and questions remain as to what’s next for each. Three seem to be at a crossroads and one seems likely to start over at the bottom.
Mike Swick has been on a heck of a ride since his fight with Paulo...
Yes, Mauricio “Shogun” Rua (Pictured). I’d be sporting a giant Kool-Aid smile if I were you, too.
Despite dropping a convincing unanimous decision to Alexander Gustafsson at “UFC on FOX: Henderson vs. Diaz,” the former light heavyweight champ was the night’s highest earner.
According to the Washington State Department of Licensing, Shogun left Seattle with a cool $175...
Entering this past Saturday’s scrap with BJ Penn, welterweight Rory MacDonald was challenged by Penn to undergo random drug testing conducted by VADA (Voluntary Anti-Doping Association). While MacDonald obliged with “The Prodigy’s” request, he admitted that the process was a bit “annoying.”
