UFC on FX 8 is in the history books and last night’s event provided some very entertaining scraps, some controversial decisions and some excellent finishes in the final fights. Before getting into my post-fight analysis of this card, including what’s next for the winners of each bout, I’m going to make a slight complaint to the UFC.

Josh Barnett is coming home. The seventh Ultimate Fighting Championship heavyweight champion has signed a multi-fight deal to return to the octagon for the first time in over eleven years.
Two primary topics of discussion arose within MMA circles after Vitor Belfort (pictured) planted his foot in Luke Rockhold’s face his past Saturday – ironically, one of which was not the highlight reel strike itself.
The giant elephant in the Octagon was, ‘How much did testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) have to do with Belfort’s second consecutive head kick (T)KO victory...
Like a fine wine, UFC middleweight Vitor Belfort (pictured) appears to be getting better with age. The only problem with that vino is its last two performances are marred in testosterone replacement therapy (TRT).
Belfort has said next to nothing about his consumption of the controversial treatment, besides the fact he has always been upfront with the UFC regarding his synthetic...
Vitor looked great on Saturday night and it will be hard to deny the man a title shot next. He has been on a tear as of late KOing two top ten middleweights with spectacular head kicks in his last two fights. Unfortunately for the UFC veteran his late success has been overshadowed by his TRT use. Kieth Kizer of the Nevada State Athletic Commission has gone on record saying...

It was a clean sweep for Brazil this part Saturday night as they emerged victorious in all four fights on the main card of the UFC on FX 8 event which took place at the Jaraguá arena in Santa Catarina, Brazil. It was an event which, on paper, was not the strongest but delivered on the night.
The main card started off with a back and forth battle between Brazilian...
Vitor Belfort has been the face of the UFC in Brazil for well over a decade now. Luke Rockhold has all of the makings of a future UFC superstar stateside. Tonight on FX we will see one of these men take a huge step forward, while the other will be forced to step back and watch. While it may be one of the more unlikely grudge matches that we never asked for; this will be one that...
In UFC president Dana White’s latest video blog, he provides exclusive behind-the-scenes footage of last month’s UFC 159 event in New Jersey.
There are some interesting clips in White’s vlog, including UFC matchmaker Joe Silva explaining to White what I’ve been complaining about forever – why fighters aren’t given a five-minute recovery period for accidental eye pokes...
Vitor is a freaking beast, TRT or not. Explosive, powerful, and just plain scary.

I wish Dana White could of talked AC Slater into stepping into the octagon with his wrestling back round. Just another celebrity fan of the biggest combat sport on the planet.
