But the Brazilian wasn’t the only fighter to dramatically improve upon his near future...

Fabricio Werdum cements his place as the number one contender, is coming for Cain Velasquez

It’s Easter Sunday. I should be preparing to go visit the family so I can eat some guilt-laden ham, but all I can think about is UFC on FOX 11, and the brilliant performances therein. If anyone denies Fabricio Werdum as the clear number one contender in the UFC heavyweight division, they’re plain nuts. Fabricio Werdum put on a clinic last night in Orlando, and reassured all of...

Rousey: I can beat up Cain Velasquez

Ronda Rousey thinks she can beat UFC heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez. Not in a race. Not at a surfing contest. Not in a who-can-hit-the-most-armbars-in-one-minute competition.
