The first quarter of the year is in the books for the UFC, and to say the big fights have been underwhelming so far in 2017 would be an understatement. After Khabib Nurmagomedov’s interim lightweight title fight versus Tony Ferguson was cancelled at UFC 209 due to his hospitalization in attempting an extreme weight cut, and the welterweight championship…

The UFC continues gearing up to their annual Super Bowl weekend card as big Fox will play host to UFC on Fox 18 during Super Bowl media week.

There was something that wasn’t quite right about UFC 191, and it wasn’t that it was a Demetrious Johnson headlined card that was doomed to fail commercially. No, the big thing wrong with UFC 191 was that former flyweight John Lineker and bantamweight slugger Francisco Rivera weren’t on the main card. Instead, TUF winner Corey…

The UFC yesterday reinstated light heavyweight contender Anthony Johnson from his indefinite suspension, and Johnson will make his return to the cage in early 2015. Johnson was suspended back in September over an alleged domestic violence incident, which violated the UFC’s Code of Conduct for its fighters. But after the case was voluntarily dismissed by…

UFC 172 was in a strange place prior to the fight card actually taking place on Saturday. The main event of Jon Jones attempting to defend his light heavyweight title for the seventh consecutive time was sold as his biggest test ever, despite being far from it. Likewise, the event itself was deemed to be…

Although the event is still more than a month away, UFC 172 is shaping up as another excellent pay-per-view card for the organization. It seems that Zuffa really is beginning to put a priority on well-constructed numbered events. Despite complaints from every direction that the amount of cards has decreased the quality of the product,…
