If you were waiting for the Anderson Silva vs. GSP UFC fight, you’ll have to keep waiting. GSP has officially declined the fight and instead hopes to settle a long standing grudge with Nick Diaz once Diaz returns from suspension.

Apparently, every UFC champion is scared to fight their top contender. First Johny Hendricks accused welterweight king Georges St-Pierre of quaking in his bare feet, and now Cristiane “Cyborg” Santos’s camp is claiming freshly-minted bantamweight queen Ronda Rousey (Pictured) is avoiding a tango with their client. When UFC president Dana White decided to dabble in women’s...
While a lightweight championship affair headlines the Octagon’s final FOX card of 2012, UFC president Dana White has just placed title implications on Saturday’s co-featured attraction between Mauricio “Shogun” Rua and Alexander Gustafsson.
According to White, the victor of the pivotal shootout will get next dibs at the 205-pound crown.
“Unless there’s some crazy [expletive...
Johny Hendricks is pissed. After what was billed to be a title elimination fight at UFC 154, Johny Hendricks fully expected a title shot after knocking out Martin Kampmann with ease. But, anything is possible in MMA, and now coming off a loss and a 1-year suspension, Nick Diaz is apparently getting a shot a [...]
In the fight business, there’s a cruel reality that athletes can turn old overnight. Well, in BJ Penn’s (Pictured) case, it took Rory MacDonald only 15 minutes to make the former two-divisional UFC champion look like he’s well beyond his prime.
If you were to ask UFC president Dana White, the 33-year-old needs to call it quits … again.

Cristiane Cyborg Santos says she is now willing to fight Ronda Rousey at 135 pounds in the UFC, giving fight fans the most anticipated fight in MMA Women’s history at some point in 2013.
An emotional Dominick Cruz (Pictured) appeared on this week’s edition of FUEL TV’s UFC Tonight to address his second knee operation in six months. While many question whether “The Dominator” will ever be the same following his extended hiatus, Cruz will use the experience and successes of Georges St-Pierre’s ACL surgery as a blueprint for his return to glory.

MMA fans won’t have to wait much longer to watch Ronda Rousey’s UFC debut. The newly crowned 135 pound UFC champion will have her first title defense at UFC 157. The fight will headline the February event featuring Dan Henderson vs. Lyoto Machida in support.
A day after a bit of a tease about Ronda Rousey’s first UFC fight, things finally are official.
But Rousey won’t be fighting Cristiane “Cyborg” Santos, as Wednesday’s rumor had her meeting. Instead, Rousey (6-0 MMA, 0-0 UFC) will be meeting Liz Carmouche (7-2 MMA, 0-0 UFC) as the first defense of her new UFC women’s bantamweight title at UFC 157 in February.
