Bobby Voelker hasn’t won a fight in 27 months, and he’s winless in three UFC tries. But for now, his job is secure.

At Saturday’s UFC 168 event, Voelker (24-11 MMA, 0-3 UFC) fought through a leaky nose, blood-splattered eyes and a storm of fists from fellow welterweight William Macario (7-1 MMA, 1-1 UFC) to hang on for three rounds. He suffered a lopsided decision loss via 30-27 scores, but it seemed a footnote to otherwise gritty performance.

I feel sorry for voelker, he shows so much heart in his fights. I'll be cheering for him his next bout.

You better believe that man's getting paid more than the disclosed salary.

Exactly, I too thought it was "going anywhere" in the sporting/rankings sense.

idk...I really thought Voelker had a winnable fight here against the brazilian Randleman....just not sure he's UFC level regardless of how fun his fights are to watch.
