Anthony Johnson’s light heavyweight title shot raising questions about division’s future

As a former welterweight bust who was discarded as wasted talent by the masses and fighting in the sport’s basement only two years ago, Anthony Johnson had nothing to lose as he entered the octagon to square-off with Alexander Gustafsson for a crack at the light heavyweight crown in Saturday’s main event at UFC on Fox 14 in Stockholm, Sweden.

Johnson vs. Gustafsson was a true #1 contender fight; Why can’t we have more of these fights?

This is something that has puzzled me for a while now and that is the lack of true number one contenders fights like Anthony Johnson and Alexander Gustafsson one.

Fans and Fighter pay and what the MMA media keeps missing

Every time I see some member of the MMA media using Floyd Mayweather to make a point about fighter pay in MMA, and the UFC specifically, I have to laugh at them. They make some comparison to an MMA fighter and how much Mayweather makes to illustrate that boxers make more than MMA fighters. They are then surprised when the fans do not agree with them and then the fans are accused...
