Nick Catone retiring after six years in the UFC due to lingering injuries
Nick Catone will not be competing as scheduled at UFC on FOX 15 next month in Newark. And we have likely seen the last of the New Jersey native in the Octagon. Catone has decided to retire from the UFC due to lingering injuries, mainly chronic back pain, he told MMAFighting.com on Tuesday. The 33-year-old attempted to get through camp for his bout against Vitor Miranda on April 18, but just couldn't do it. He felt like his back was only getting worse and refused to get the cortisone shots he had been taking over the years to ease his pain. (Courtesy of on Twitter)

Possession is nine-tenths of the law.

Brock Lesnar re-signs with WWE: 'My legacy in the octagon is over'
Former UFC heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar has signed a new WWE contract, thus ending speculation about a potential return to MMA. Lesnar’s WWE contract was set to expire next Monday, the day after WrestleMania 31, the company’s most significant yearly event. There have been longstanding rumors Lesnar was leaning toward making a second run at MMA following his December 2011 retirement, but he today announced on ESPN that after many months of debate, he’s decided to sign a new contract with the WWE. “I’m here to say my legacy in the octagon is over,” Lesnar said. “However, my legacy this Sunday at WrestleMania will not be my last. It will not be my last. I’m hanging up all thought – I want it to be out of my mouth and I want people to hear me. It was a hard decision to make. It took me a year. I thought about this for a year. “At the end of the day, it’s all about me wanting to have fun. The money is great, but the lifestyle, for me to get back in the octagon … the last two, two and a half months I’ve been training. I’ve been training to get back in the octagon and felt physically great, but something lacked mentally. And that’s not good.”
