Dong Hyun Kim (no, not that Dong Hyun Kim) is a late addition to next week’s UFC Fight Night 79 lineup.
Not to be confused by the UFC welterweight of the same name who, coincidentally, also is scheduled for UFC Fight Night 79, ”Maestro” Dong Hyun Kim (13-6-3 MMA, 0-0 UFC) has replaced injured Hyun Gyu Lim (13-5-1 MMA, 3-2 UFC) and now meets fellow 170-pounder Dominique Steele (13-6 MMA, 0-1 UFC) at the event, officials today announced.
Brian Foster lost his first tournament match, but that didn't stop him from becoming the WSOF lightweight tournament champion.
During his first fight, Foster (25-8) faced Brazilian jiu-jitsu specialist Joao Zeferino. Foster quickly took the fight to the mat, where he scrambled with his opponent Zeferino just to land in the 50/50 position. There, the Brazilian submitted Foster with a vicious heel-hook. And in just one minute and 47 seconds, Foster was out of the tournament.

One of the biggest challenges for a mixed martial arts fighter is surviving the rigors of training camp.
The uncertainty makes for many a fight postponement, and former Bangor-area fighter Ray “All Business” Wood now has experienced both sides of that frustration within the last two weeks.
Jon Jones is getting both his body and his troll game back into top form.

WSOF 25 goes down tomorrow night in Phoenix, but one fighter entered into the promotion's eight-man, one-night tournament and one reserve fighter have been forced to withdraw just 24 hours before their scheduled bouts. According to MMA Fighting, both Brian Cobb and Benny Madrid are out.
What do we know about the financial health of the UFC? We know the company has seen its revenues rise steadily over the years, from $4.6 million in 2001, the first year under Zuffa, LLC's management, to $522 million last year. At the same time, we have seen the company's long-term debts also rise, from zero bank debt in those early years to its current $535 million debt load. Neither debt nor revenue tells us much though about its current financial condition. Are they profitable, and if so how profitable? Are they solvent and able to meet their obligations? Without more data, revenue and debt do little to answer these questions.
All are very interesting and well worth the read.

Floyd Mayweather Jr. is a lot of things. One thing he hasn’t been known for is his generosity. But people change, apparently, and now Floyd sounds like he’s on Team Ronda Rousey, despite the two jabbing at each other in the media for the past couple years. Seems legit.

The Albuquerque City Council has proclaimed November “Holly Holm Month” in celebration of the popular fighter’s upset victory over Ronda Rousey in the UFC 193 headliner.
Congrats to Holly. Pretty funny.
Former Strikeforce and current Invicta FC featherweight champion Cris Justino has been the victim of her fair share of body shaming and gross gender-related jokes and comments.
Most recently, Joe Rogan and fellow comedian Tony Hinchcliffe made a joke in a podcast that featured UFC President Dana White about Cyborg having male genitals. They followed up by suggesting that she could cut down to bantamweight if she relieved herself it.
When Holly Holm knocked out Ronda Rousey on Saturday night at UFC 193, one of the most conspicuous congratulations came from Intel Pharma — not for what it said, but for what it is.
The Texas-based company, one of Holm’s sponsors, sells supplements advertised as containing substances that are banned by the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA). UFC’s independent administrator of its doping protocol is the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency (USADA), which adheres to WADA rules and regulations.
