MMA's week out of the cage: Ronda Rousey's ring, Conor McGregor's Beats deal and more

Social media has become a significant part of the sporting landscape. But few, if any, professional sports match the level of interaction and personal access provided by MMA.

In an individual competition in which nearly every athlete is chasing the same goal of financial success and championship glory, it’s important for fighters to provide insight into their lives in order to connect with fans and gain followings.

Although the life of a fighter often can be mundane and repetitive, there...

Luke Rockhold: ‘I wouldn’t mind taking fights at heavyweight just for fun’

As of Monday, May 9, Luke Rockhold said he weighed right around 208 pounds — the perfect weight to whittle back to 185 pounds if a fight to his liking opened up, but also an adequate weight for his ultimate Plan B if one doesn’t. That is, taking some fights at heavyweight.

Rockhold voiced his displeasure with the UFC on a recent edition of The MMA Hour, essentially saying he would not take a fight unless there was a clear and reasonable path to a title shot, while also encouraging his...

Glover Teixeira vs. Ryan Bader full fight video

At UFC Fight Night 28, back on Sept. 4, 2013, Glover Teixeira earned a Knockout of the Night bonus by stopping Ryan Bader in impressive fashion in the first round of their main event bout. The knockout over Bader kept Teixeira undefeated in the UFC, and earned him a title shot against then-light heavyweight champion Jon Jones.

Now, close to four years later, Teixeira will face fellow title challenger Alexander Gustafsson in the main event of UFC Fight Night 109. The event is set to take...

Dan Hardy: 'Scariest thing I've ever seen' was Jimi Manuwa's KO of Corey Anderson


Filed under: News, UFC, Videos

STOCKHOLM – Former UFC welterweight title challenger Dan Hardy hasn’t fought since 2012 because of a heart condition but hopes to return soon. In the meantime, he’s carved out a nice role as a UFC Fight Pass commentator and FOX Sports analyst.

One of the events in which Hardy sat cageside was UFC Fight Night 107 in London, where he witnessed England’s own Jimi Manuwa destroy Corey Anderson with a left hook to earn a first-round knockout win.

Errol Spence Jr. is now the IBF Welterweight champion after a thrilling stoppage win over England’s Kell Brook in Kell’s hometown of Sheffield. This was yet another soccer stadium show in the UK, with 27,000 or so packing Brammall Lane. Unlike Anthony Joshua vs. Wladimir Klitschko in April, there was no victory for the home fighter.

Mamed Khalidov, Mariusz Pudzianowski Win; 58,000 Attend Historic KSW 39 in Warsaw


Saturday in Poland, Europe's preeminent MMA promotion Konfrontacja Sztuk Walki made history, putting over an estimated 58,000 fight fans inside PGE Narodowy Stadium. Yet, while KSW 39 was an instant and unique landmark in combat sports history, there was something strangely, perhaps unsettlingly, familiar about the main event.

Brook vs. Spence results: Errol Spence stops Kell Brook, wins IBF welterweight title in great fight

Errol Spence Jr. is the new IBF welterweight champion, as he finished Kell Brook in the 11th round of an entertaining bout.

Errol Spence Jr. (22-0, 19 KOs) went into enemy territory and took the IBF welterweight title away from Sheffield, England’s own Kell Brook (36-2, 25 KOs) in a very well-contested bout. Brook’s left eye was badly damaged from Spence’s powerful punches, and that proved to be what caused Howard Foster to stop the bout.

It was a real tough back-and-forth battle in...

Report: UFC removes 12 fighters from roster including Sam Sicilia & Michinori Tanaka

It looks like the UFC has gone through another round of cuts, with the removal of 12 fighters from their online roster.

It’s that time again. Time for another round of UFC roster trimming. While it doesn’t happen with near the same regularity that it once did, the UFC roster still tends to go through a lot of churn, as new fighters are picked up month after month and fighters who haven’t made their mark in the promotion are released from their contracts.

Nothing is official, but it...

Don't blink, or you might miss this incredible 16-second faceplant KO at KSW 39

KSW, the leading MMA organization in Poland, put on its massive stadium show “KSW 39: Colosseum” today – which had awesome weigh-ins by the way – and the heavyweight title fight between Marcin Rozalski and Fernando Rodrigues Jr. ended in spectacular fashion.

Just moments in, both men threw simultaneous leg kicks at each other. But then Rodrigues immediately pushed forward with his head down and threw a wild combination. That’s when a backpedaling Rozalski countered with a right...

Stefan Struve on UFC champ Stipe Miocic: 'I think I'm his kryptonite'


Filed under: Featured, Featured Videos, News, UFC, Videos

STOCKHOLM – Stefan Struve does not hold a top-15 spot in the current USA TODAY Sports/MMAjunkie MMA heavyweight rankings. One thing he does own, however, is a win over UFC champion Stipe Miocic.

T.J. Dillashaw on MMAAA: ‘I don’t know if I was led down the wrong path’

The Mixed Martial Arts Athletes Association (MMAAA) came onto the scene with a vengeance after a much-discussed press conference last November.

Since then? Not so much. There has been little-to-nothing in terms of public follow-up from the first major attempt at a fighters association that ever saw the light of day.

It’s been so low-key, in fact, that one of the fighters who was a part of the big rollout isn’t sure what’s going on with the group.

Why Reza Madadi isn't committing to that possible retirement, after all

STOCKHOLM – Many fight fans were surprised when the UFC initially put together an event in Sweden without Reza Madadi. He ultimately ended up on the card, but it wasn’t through any traditional means.

Madadi (14-5 MMA, 3-3 UFC), a pro MMA fighter for more than 10 years, specifically requested a spot on Sunday’s UFC Fight Night 109 fight card, which takes place at Ericsson Globe in Stockholm and airs on FS1 following early prelims on UFC...

Peter Sobotta's key to beating Ben Saunders at UFC-Stockholm? 'Avoid the guard'

STOCKHOLM – Peter Sobotta has been largely successful since he returned to the UFC three years ago for a second stint. He’s won all but one fight, and he attempts to continue that solid run when he meets Ben Saunders at UFC Fight Night 109.

After a forgettable 0-3 stretch from 2009-2010 that led to his UFC release, Sobotta (16-5-1 MMA, 3-4 UFC) took the long and hard road back to the octagon. He finally got a second chance, and on...
