Stipe Miocic Dominates Roy Nelson at UFC 161 (Video Highlight)

If this was Roy Nelson’s final fight inside the Octagon, it certainly was not the way “Big Country” envisioned leaving the planet’s premier mixed martial arts promotion. Nelson was thoroughly outstruck by Stipe Miocic (pictured) at UFC 161. He was rocked several times and appeared winded midway through the opening round. When it was all said and done, Nelson dropped a lopsided...

Evans edges Henderson at UFC 161

Rashad Evans outpointed Dan Henderson in a split decision Saturday night in a heavyweight bout at UFC 161. The 42-year-old Henderson connected with the first solid punches late in the first round, attacking so eagerly he could hardly keep his feet against the 33-year-old Evans. "I said, 'What hit me,'" said Evans, who approached Henderson with a lot more caution...

Rashad Evans Edges Dan Henderson for Controversial Decision at UFC 161 (Video Highlight)

On a night where the UFC tied the most decisions rendered in a single event with nine, three of which were of the split decision variety, there was bound to be some controversial verdicts made by the three judges sitting cageside. Unfortunately for Dan Henderson, he was on the wrong end of a debatable (29-28, 28-29, 29-28) split decision to Rashad Evans (pictured) in the show...

Rashad Evans not thinking middleweight drop after Henderson win in UFC 161

The other side of the coin for Rashad Evans on Saturday night was not going to be a good thing. And he was just one judge and one round away from it.

Despite loss at UFC 161 and plenty of fighting with the boss, Dana White wants Roy Nelson back.

Last night Roy Nelson set a UFC record for the most punches absorbed without ever being TKOd or KOd. That’s absolutely wild considering Nelson’s relatively short time in the Octagon. Nelson has taken 487 punches to the head and now, it must be said, maybe it’s affected his decision making progress. Apparently Roy turned down Dana White and Joe Silva’s offer of a newer, more...
