UFC 164: Josh Barnett TKO’s Frank Mir with Knee (Video)

Heavyweight Josh Barnett (pictured) made a triumphant return to the UFC on Saturday night. However, it didn’t come without controversy.

Cain Velasquez Does An Interview At Duke Roufus’ Gym

The champ is in Milwaukee for UFC 164 and while their gets in a workout at Wisconsin’s best fight gym, Roufus Sport, owned by the legendary Duke Roufus.  Cain isn’t the much of a talker but you never want to miss one of his fights.  The problem with the heavyweight division is going to be that Cain and JDS are at a different level than everyone else in the division.  I feel...

Tito Ortiz likens Dana White to a slave owner, Dana fires back.

Oh, Tito. Slaves don’t make millions of dollars over a decade-long career in the UFC, didn’t you know that? Well, that’s Tito logic for you, he tries to make a good point then utterly screws it up with a strange slavery comment. Tito: you live in a mansion, man. I thought slavery was over a long time ago. It’s just one of those things that you can’t trust a word that the...

Dana White: Anthony Pettis Not Ready for UFC Pound-for-Pound Ranking

The only thing more subjective than the divisional UFC Fighter Rankings is the pound-for-pound UFC Fighter Rankings. Unless athletes hop divisions or collide at catchweights to face each other, how can one possibly determine which heavier/lighter fighter is better than the other? Nonetheless, the discussion came up Saturday night after Anthony Pettis (pictured) submitted Benson Henderson...

UFC News: Dana White Says Anthony Pettis Injured His Knee In His Title Win Against Benson Henderson

Newly crowned UFC lightweight champion Anthony Pettis called out UFC featherweight champion Jose Aldo after his win over Benson Henderson at UFC 164 last night.

Kelvin Gastelum: Uriah Hall Lacks Killer Instinct

When Kelvin Gastelum broke in his six-figure UFC contract in spectacular fashion on Wednesday night with a quick submission victory over Brian Melancon, I couldn’t help but think what was going through Uriah Hall’s (pictured) head at that moment.

Anthony ‘Showtime’ Pettis Verbal Taps Benson Henderson (GIF)

I predicted a Showtime victory, but I never saw it ending like this.  It was a delayed reaction on my part when Henderson verbally tapped.  Apparently, Pettis heard Benson’s arm ‘pop’ and then he heard Hendo say ‘tap-tap-tap’.  I wish we could of seen a 5 round war, but Showtime deserved it.  Give him Aldo next!!  Thanks to the GIF master ZombieProphet for the goods...
