Gray Maynard And Ryan Bader Finish A Practice

It looks like Gray Maynard’s comeback fight will be pushed back for the time being now that UFC 176 has been postponed due to an injury suffered by champion Jose Aldo.  That will just give Gray more time to work with his team down in Arizona.  On a side note I cannot believe that Maynard can make 155 lbs.  He looks huge here standing next to light heavyweight Ryan Bader.  Looking...

Gray Maynard Spends Some Time With His Daughter

Gray Maynard is definitely enjoying being a father as he spends the day outside with his young daughter.  Giving your child an ice cream cone is always a great way to get a smile and of course you have to document this moment on Instagram.  Best of luck to Gray in his journey back to the Octagon after taking nearly a year off from fighting.  We will see him next at UFC 176 in...

The official event poster for UFC 176 ‘Aldo vs. Mendes II’ is worthy of your wall

Let’s be honest. Over the past few years there’s probably only been a handful of UFC event posters that have really made you take a double take. This official poster for UFC 176 ‘Aldo vs. Mendes II’ looks so good that it made us immediately think it was another one of those awesome fan made posters.

Gray Maynard And Aaron Simpson Hang Out With Wee Man

Gray Maynard training with Power MMA and Fitness in Arizona is off to a good start as him and coach Aaron Simpson attend Jared Allen’s charity golf event.  Be interesting to see what Maynard has left because he is an exceptional fighter but had two bad knockouts in his last two fights.  That can be a tough thing to recover from but I will never doubt Gray Maynard.

Gray Maynard Back Boxing In Vegas

It was a rough 2013 for the former title challenger as Gray was viciously KOed twice last year by TJ Grant and Nate Diaz.  Not only did he suffer losses inside the cage but Maynard also lost his two dogs, which is where he gets his nickname The Bully from.  He has since taken some time off to allow his body to recover, get some test done on his brain which all came back great,...

Top 10 Most Vulgar Displays of Power 2013

You could argue that 2013 was the most violent year in the history of mixed martial arts to date. When you put two earthlings in a cage together and tell them you'll give them money if they hurt each other until one of them either falls asleep or taps the person trying to submit them so they'll stop, then of course you're going to get a hearty helping of violence on any...
