  • MMA Community Reacts to Erik Koch Injury and New UFC 153 Main Event of Jose Aldo vs. Frankie Edgar

  • Gerald Meerschaert Returns To Action After Lengthy Layoff Against Jason Louck at Rogue Warrior Championships

    "The Machine" is up and running again and the welterweight division needs to be on alert.

  • Is Mainstream MMA Ruining the Sport We All Fell in Love With?

    Watching fights nearly every weekend is a hardcore mixed martial arts fan's dream. But sometimes dreams are interpretations of a reality that easily drift too far away. The recent cancellation of UFC 151 not only sent shockwaves through the sport and ultimately may define fighter legacy in Jon Jones, but it may have also brought UFC executives back down to earth. The perennial king of MMA, the Ultimate Fighting Championship, has been promoting one to two or sometimes even three events per month. Who could complain about that, right? Wrong. The sport is evolving so much, and so quickly that the list of well-rounded fighters on the roster is continually growing.

While head coach Ben Rothwell's prediction of winning all five fights fell just short – only because James Bochnovic's opponent left the arena an hour before the fight and was never seen again – the impress...
