Even stranger than the idea of three unbelievably dominant UFC champions competing at the same point in history is the idea that each champion would only need to move up or down one single weight class to fight one of the only three people in the promotion who wins as much as he does.
Just like there aren’t any welterweights who seem to have what it takes to defeat long-time champion Georges St. Pierre, there are no current middleweights who can beat the legendary Anderson Silva and there sure as hell aren’t any light heavyweights who can overcome 205 lb. king Jon Jones.
But in the event of a catch-weight fight, Georges could fight Silva and Silva could fight Jones. The massive win streaks of each champion has convinced us all that unless these super-fights happen, these three fighters will happily retire with the same perfect record of title defenses they have now. And that just can’t happen. At least not until the UFC goes to the greatest length possible to make sure it doesn...

Jon “Bones” Jones put on a clinic last night at UFC 159 in his first round TKO of Chael Sonnen. In the process of pummeling Sonnen to retain his light heavyweight title, Jones had no idea that he broke the big toe on his left foot. He finally realized it during the post fight interview with Joe Rogan.
It was funny to see Rogan trying...
Alexander Gustafsson (pictured) and his team recently released a Harlem Shake video that featured his friends holding up signs that read ”Jon Jones You Are Next.” After Jones steamrolled Chael Sonnen at UFC 159 on Saturday, “Bones” said he’s more than willing to oblige. However, Jones is the division’s reigning king. So Gustafsson is the one who would be “next...
Hot off the press (or in this case, Twitter)! The official event poster for “UFC 162: Silva vs. Weidman” has just hit the Internet.
There’s really nothing too special about the billboard, but Chris Weidman probably won’t appreciate that it’s made in Anderson Silva’s trademark bumblebee colorway.
Silva puts his middleweight crown on the line July 6 against arguably the...
After thrashing Chael Sonnen this past Saturday at UFC 159, reigning light heavyweight king Jon Jones tied Tito Ortiz (pictured) for the most successful 205-pound title defenses in Octagon history.
While Jones is still one win away from solidifying his spot as the promotion’s most decorated champion in the division, UFC president Dana White believes Jones has already surpassed...
Daniel Cormier and the UFC appear to be on two different pages. Cormier seems steadfast in staying at heavyweight, at least for the time being while the UFC would like him to drop to 205. Dana White has upped the stakes by offering Cormier a fast track at the championship.
Lyoto Machida has worked himself back to being the #1 contender for the Light Heavy weight championship, but an injury to champ Jon Jones could derail his title hopes.
Machida has fought Jon Jones once before and the end result was Machida being choked out by Jones’ standing Guillotine.
Since that defeat Machida has defeated Ryan Bader and Dan Henderson respectively. Machida’s...
Jon Jones silences Chael Sonnen with a brutal first round TKO.
UFC 159 is almost her, but if you've been following the Twitter account of event headliner and Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) light heavyweight No. 1 contender Chael Sonnen, you already knew that, didn't you?
As the days have winded down to Saturday's (April 27, 2013) pay-per-view (PPV) event in Newark, N.J., Sonnen has counted the moments in the form of a witty...

Before the main event gets underway this Saturday night (April 27, 2013) in Newark, New Jersey with the championship on the line when Light Heavyweight sensation Jon Jones meets the strong wrestling game of Chael Sonnen.
With a victory for “Bones,” he will be tied with Tito Ortiz all-time title defense record if he can crash some strong elbows and stop Sonnen...
