A Sneak Peek at CES 28
A piece over at HOV-MMA about CES 28 tonight on AXS TV. The main event features a well-known fighter in Rick Hawn, but there are a few rising powers on the card that won't be far from UFC after this.
Chris Cariaso: If Henry Cejudo doesn't make weight, I'm not fighting him
If Henry Cejudo doesn’t make weight, Saturday’s UFC 185 event is going to need a new pay-per-view opener.
Chris Cariaso (17-6 MMA, 7-4 UFC), who meets Cejudo (7-0 MMA, 1-0 UFC) in the first PPV bout at Dallas’ American Airlines Center, is putting his foot down when it comes to the former Olympic gold-medal wrestler, who’s repeatedly struggled to make the 126-pound limit for the flyweight division.

Munoz: Hard to speculate if Rousey can beat men
"Someone in the UFC said that Ronda can beat 50% of the men, but it's totally different man," Munoz explained during a live chat with ABS-CBN Sports. "It's totally different. It's hard to say, and you can speculate all you want. She can definitely compete, but I don't know if it's true."
"She is truly unbelievable though. She's great and she's an amazing person," he said.
"She can definitely match them technique per technique (in grappling)," Munoz said about Rousey's chances. "I definitely believe she can compete with them, but it's too hard to speculate if she can actually beat (most of the men) in MMA."
Ann Osman not trying to sell sex appeal
Ann "Athena" Osman is in a class of one - she is female, Muslim, Malaysian, and one of the biggest stars in One Championship, the biggest MMA promotion in Asia. Marc Raimondi for MMAFighting.com spoke with Osman, ahead of her fight with Walaa Abbas on Friday at One Championship 25.
UFC women's bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey recently landed in Sports Illustrated's swimsuit issue, wearing not much more than nothing in some shots.
Roy Nelson on UFC's new drug policy: 'Is it really going to make a difference?'
DALLAS -- Roy Nelson could be accused of a lot of things, but being a drug cheat isn't one of them. Three years before increased testing was the topic du jour in mixed martial arts, Nelson was leading the drug-free campaign largely by himself, attempting to sway opponents Shane Carwin and Matt Mitrione into signing up for Voluntary Anti-Doping Association (VADA) testing in late 2012, then signing himself up anyway once both men balked at the opportunity.
