Cats may have nine lives, but UFC president Dana White says Leonard Garcia’s (pictured) UFC career will likely stop at five.
After dropping his fifth consecutive scrap in a lopsided unanimous decision defeat to Cody McKenzie at UFC 159, White didn’t outright fire the featherweight, but insinuated the writing was already plastered all over the cage wall.
“He got beat,” White said following the UFC 159 post-fight press conference. “He even got beat standing up. Cody McKenzie beat him [Saturday], every way you can beat a guy.
“I don’t want to say it, but it’s not looking good.”
That’s ok, because there’s really nothing more to say. After taking a highly controversial split decision win over Nam Phan in his UFC debut, “Bad Boy” has been downright bad.
The UFC typically severs ties with fighters after embarking on three-fight skids, though given Garcia’s gunslinger style, he was granted a reprieve. And then shockingly another one.
However, it appears Saturday signified his Octagon swan song.
Garcia owns a 15-11-1 professional record.

Last Saturday’s UFC event was probably one of the strangest shows in a long time. It could’ve been the final haunting by the ghost of UFC 151, or it could’ve just been one of those nights where nothing goes as planned. Sometimes these things happen in MMA. We saw multiple fights end early, and Gian Villante and Ovince St. Preux. Villante was poked in the eye, and when the...

Junior dos Santos is just one win away from a chance to regain the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) heavyweight title, according to company president Dana White.

It is a rare occasion when you get an inside look at Anderson Silva. Like Water shows a fascinating backstory behind one of the greatest fights and fighters in UFC history yet still left plenty of unanswered questions about who Anderson Silva really is.
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.
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...
