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...

Mendes building towards Aldo rematch

It's been a year and a half since Chad Mendes' worst day as a pro, 18 months to digest what went wrong, correct it, then implement change. The results so far have been promising.

Henderson prefers the hostile crowd

UFC lightweight champion Benson Henderson stopped by to talk with UFC Tonight's Ariel Helwani after the UFC 164 weigh in. Bendo was his usual calm, stoic self but made an interesting remark about actually enjoying being behind enemy lines.

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...
