Frustrated Costa Philippou still waiting for first fight of 2013: ‘Just give me somebody'
Costa Philippou fought seven times over the past two years, so he's used to keeping a busy schedule. But the middleweight has yet to step foot into the cage in 2013, and despite the UFC's hectic second-half calendar, his name remains in limbo. So if it was up to him, when would Philippou like to fight next? "As soon as possible," the New Yorker flatly answered on Monday's edition of The MMA Hour. "I wanted to fight in Boston. That didn't happen. I know there's a show in Toronto on September 21st. My last fight was in Canada. The fans are great over there. It's a short flight for me, I don't have to change anything.

If Rory MacDonald gets past Jake Ellenberger, he faces his toughest decision
Ever since the then 21-year-old Rory MacDonald threw around Nate Diaz before 55,000 fans at the Rogers Centre in Toronto en route to a unanimous decision win, people have labeled him as the next Georges St-Pierre, or as the heir apparent to St-Pierre’s crowns. St-Pierre is not just the UFC welterweight champion, but the face of the sport in Canada. He earns millions in endorsements to go along with being the sport’s biggest drawing card. MacDonald (14-1) was 20 when he moved from Kelowna, British Columbia, across the country to Montreal in search of the training that he felt would allow him to reach his potential as a fighter. That meant training at Tri-Star Gym, the home of St-Pierre...

Brazilian fighters have been making a name for themselves competing in Asia since the dawn of modern MMA competition when Rickson Gracie would submit multiple opponents in a single night at Vale Tudo Japan. Today, the sport has evolved almost beyond recognition, but fighters from the same country that gave us the Gracies are still holding their own in Asia. Among them is Rodrigo Caporal, a long-term resident of Hong Kong, who recently became the 155-pound champion of China. Caporal (9-4) has won five fights out of five since signing with RUFF, a Chinese organization that is government sanctioned, giving its fighters the right to call themselves national champions of the most populated country on the planet...
