“I think the court is complete here. I’m the king, Chad is the prince and now we have a joker.” This is what UFC featherweight champion Jose Aldo told us after defeating Chad Mendes last month in Rio. It’s a great quote. He did forget to take “The Answer” into account though.

The former Welterweight title challenger is in talks to face off against the streaking Neil Magny at UFC 184 in February. The potential matchup was first reported by MMAJunkie, but the UFC has yet to confirm the bout yet.

Part of the furniture in the UFC’s 170lb divison for many years, former title contender Koscheck has hit upon rough times in the promotion with three losses in a row, worryingly punctuated by two...
Sheamus found himself in a Twitter feud with Conor McGregor today. The whole situation sprung up after McGregor appeared on SI Now (which you can see below) and was asked about Sheamus. McGregor said he could “whoop Sheamus’ ass” in a fight, which prompted the little back-and-forth:

UFC fighter Jon ‘Bones’ Jones has come to Bill Cosby’s defense in the worst way possible. Listen to his explanation of why Cosby is innocent of the vicious acts he’s accused of.
Pretty ignorant line of thinking even if it wasn’t his intent to downgrade such a serious matter.Unfortunately your browser does not support IFrames.

Georges St. Pierre is busy rehabbing a knee injury and it’s now a matter of when he will return to the octagon, not if he will return. Just don’t expect that return to be against Anderson Silva.
At last weekend’s ‘UFC: The Time is Now’ event Nick Diaz openly called GSP “scared” and a “coward” for not taking the January 31st fight against Anderson Silva; a fight...
UFC Fight Night 57 takes place this coming Saturday night from Texas and we’ve got our predictions for all the fights for you below.
Frankie Edgar vs. Cub Swanson
This is certainly one of the most interesting featherweight match-ups we’ve seen in a while. Swanson is the more unpredictable, dangerous striker here who’s always on the hunt for the finish, while...
I understand there is a lot of editing that goes on for TUF but for the start of the quarterfinals Felice Herrig and Carla Esparza seemed to be concerned with the wrong things. At one point before her fight Herrig even says she probably should not worry about it. Then all the talk about being a coward like they were not going to fight them or something. While they are allowing themselves...
Since it’s creation in the fall of 2010, the UFC’s featherweight division has become a constant source of main event-caliber contenders, and on Saturday at UFC Fight Night 57 in Austin, Texas, two of the best 145-pounders in the business will remind us of that when Frankie Edgar and Cub Swanson square-off in the evening’s headliner.
The rumors of Brock Lesnar back to the UFC have taken on a whole new meaning. These tidbits are no longer rumors as it does appear that Lesnar could be returning to the UFC in 2015...or elesewhere according to one report.
It was almost exactly one year ago that Quinton Jackson was tearing the UFC down for, among other things, ruining his brand and sapping his love of fighting.
My how quickly things can change with the mercurial "Rampage."
Jackson now seems to be expressing an interest in returning to the UFC. "Rampage" has been unhappy with his current promotion, Bellator MMA,...
UFC lightweight Nate Diaz (17-9) is hardly ever shy in expressing displeasure or frustration at circumstances he finds himself in. He's said the UFC doesn't pay him enough, has publicly asked for the UFC to release him, and routinely suggests that others benefit from better treatment and opportunities than he himself receives.
One thing the former title challenger will not complain...

Great news everyone! Because my email works as well as a male porn star with ED, I am now combining two days’ worth of news in one big article! Isn’t that awesome? ISN’T IT?!

Talk over the past few days suggests that Quinton ‘Rampage’ Jackson could yet return to the UFC after apparently becoming unhappy with life with Bellator.
Bellator had a big event on this past weekend that peaked with 2 million viewers on Spike TV, but while the promotion seems to be on the up at the moment thanks at least in part to former Strikeforce CEO Scott Coker taking...
We really can’t blame Jon Jones for getting a glimpse of Ronda Rousey’s cakes. He did it #ForTheBros!
