Eddie Alvarez says new Bellator deal is ‘fair enough'
Eight months of anger, resentment and legal roadblocks came to a tidy conclusion last week when former Bellator lightweight champion Eddie Alvarez reached a settlement with the promotion that built him into a star then threatened to cage his livelihood away for years in the courts. The U.S. justice system never got around to determining whether Bellator matched the terms of the UFC's contract. But nonetheless, Alvarez now is scheduled to rematch Michael Chandler in the co-main event of Bellator's inaugural pay-per-view, providing a cordial end to his rocky year...

Fortunes changed for five at UFC Fight Night 26
Of all people, it was Brock Lesnar who made one of the most salient points about MMA a few years back. When the discussion came about somebody beating somebody else, and how it showed one fighter was better than the other, he noted that a win doesn’t prove absolutes like that. He noted fighting was a sport of quarter-inches. The punch, knee or kick lands in the right spot, just misses the spot, or doesn’t land at all is often just one of those things. Lesnar knew from first-hand experience. One of his biggest wins, over Shane Carwin with another ref, could have been a loss that destroyed his career as a headliner. Instead, he left the cage that night the biggest star he ever was. Today, Alistair Overeem is an overrated bust in many people’s eyes, another in the realm of Japanese superstars built on tomato cans who got exposed in the regulated UFC environment. And it’s hard to argue that...

Despite history, UFC Fight Night 26 winners Faber and McDonald open to matchup
Urijah Faber and Michael MacDonald both are UFC bantamweights who've fallen short to champions. But it's undeniable they belong at the top of the division. The fighters both were victorious at this past Saturday's UFC Fight Night 26 event, which begs the question whether they should compete to see who should be first to get another shot at a belt.
