Whether or not you remember the time a year ago when Jon Jones and Daniel Cormier—the two best light-heavyweight fighters in the world, who legitimately can’t stand each other and match up in ways that make for brilliant fighting—were caught talking incredible shit to each other, you’ll appreciate this sequel, where…
It’s been a few days since UFC 197, but discussion rages on. Mainly, everyone’s talking about Jon Jones, who returned after a year of atonement for actual crimes, and Conor McGregor, who didn’t even fight at UFC 197. Flyweight champion Demetrious “Mighty Mouse” Johnson is once again getting the shaft.
Okay, so, last month, Conor McGregor, the UFC’s featherweight champion and biggest drawing card, lost to lightweight Nate Diaz, a late replacement for McGregor’s originally-scheduled opponent, lightweight champion Rafael dos Anjos, in a welterweight fight; the UFC, smelling money, booked a McGregor vs. Diaz rematch…
If you at all follow UFC goings-on (or even just follow someone on Twitter who accidentally watched a UFC card at a bar once), you’ve probably heard about the Biblical drama storm currently following Conor McGregor. This week McGregor “retired” from MMA over the UFC’s refusal to give him a slightly lighter promotional…
The strangest ongoing story in sports this week has been UFC featherweight champion Conor McGregor maybe (but probably not) retiring and either dropping out or being pulled from a main event fight against Nate Diaz in July on what the UFC would like to be their biggest-ever fight card.
Yesterday, UFC featherweight champion Conor McGregor may or may not have retired; it isn’t clear. What is clear is that he won’t participate in a highly-anticipated rematch against Nate Diaz on July 9, unless he does. UFC figurehead Dana White went on The Herd with smooth-skinned ghoul Colin Cowherd today to explain.
Conor McGregor—a loudmouthed troll; a genuinely brilliant fighter; and the UFC’s biggest draw and 145-lb. champion—is due to face Nate Diaz at 170 lbs. on July 9. The proposed fight, a rematch of a bout McGregor famously lost last month, is set to headline a card the promotion hopes will be its biggest ever. Whether…
Cops charged Diego Brandão with battery and assault charges Friday after the UFC featherweight allegedly hit an Albuquerque strip club employee in the face with a handgun.
EA Sports UFC 2, a game I enjoyed quite a bit despite some issues, just got a big update. Additions include a couple new fighters, a few game mode updates, balance tweaks, and the most powerful attack in all of mixed martial arts history: the Stockton Slap.
UFC star Jon Jones turned himself in to authorities today, after a judge issued a warrant for his arrest for a probation violation, reports TMZ. The violation is for the five citations Jones was handed for allegedly drag racing in Albuquerque, New Mexico—Jones says he was simply revving his engine at some fans—and he…
UFC star Jon Jones was cited for drag racing in Albuquerque, New Mexico, on March 24. TMZ got its hands on body-camera footage from the officer who cited Jones, and if you’ve ever wanted to see a famous athlete exchange school-yard put-downs with a cop, this is your lucky day:
EA Sports UFC 2 is a game that does its damnedest to imitate every element of the UFC broadcast experience (except for the weird part where it pretends commentator Mike Goldberg knows what he’s talking about). By and large, it works. It’s in the particulars that EA falters.
“Roy Jones Jr. will fight a fan in Phoenix!” the promo reel screamed, and that was just the main event to a bizarre card put on by URShow.tv last night in an online-only pay-per-view featuring MMA, pro wrestling, “grappling,” and boxing as called by an in-the-flesh Jim “J.R.” Ross.
Justin Bieber and Nate Diaz had a weird, short-lived beef following the latter’s victory over Conor McGregor, so someone went ahead and made them fight each other in UFC 2.
Holly Holm was never more valuable as a fighter than after her shock win over Ronda Rousey in November, and there would have been no more valuable fight in the history of women’s UFC than a rematch between the two. Both of those things are out the window now, after Holm was choked out by Miesha Tate on Saturday.
Conor McGregor is one of my favorite fighters. He lost in devastating fashion on Saturday night, and I couldn’t be happier.
Conor McGregor is a blowhard troll who’s been terrorizing the top ranks of pro fighters lately, while Nate Diaz is a lovable dirtbag who’s lost more than he’s won over the last couple of years. McGregor says things like, “I’ve got world titles and multi millions of dollars, you got 20 thousand to show at your last…
Nate Diaz choked out Conor McGregor in tonight’s UFC welterweight main event, shocking the promotion’s featherweight champion with McGregor’s first loss in six years.
