Former UFC champion Georges St-Pierre starting to feel desire to return to cage
“I’m starting to get the feeling, more and more, to come back,” St-Pierre said. “I watch the fights to see what’s going on in my division, and I’m staying in shape. It’s like a knife that I have to keep sharp just in case I ever decide to jump back in the mix. It’s most likely not going to happen in 2015, but I don’t know, yet.”

Northcutt opponnent fails drug test for UFC 192
UFC lightweight Francisco Trevino had a bad day at UFC 192. First he failed to make weight, coming in at 160 for a 156 lbs limit division; he did not look like he went through a long, hard cut. Then he lost via ferocious TKO in the first. Then he shoved referee Herb Dean after the loss. Now the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation has announced that Trevino failed a recreational drug test, with a urine sample showing 85 ng/ml of marijuana metabolites. The TDLR’s limit is 50 ng/ml.

Georges St-Pierre sounds off on Nick Diaz's five-year suspension
Georges St-Pierre was one of the loudest advocates for more stringent drug testing regimes in mixed martial arts during his latter years in the sport, but even he can see the lunacy in the five-year suspension the Nevada Athletic Commission handed down last month to his former rival, Nick Diaz. "Personally, I think five years is too much," St-Pierre told Canadian outlet RDS.

Ronda Rousey's mother says daughter's coach Edmond Tarverydan is 'terrible' and a 'bad person'
Ronda Rousey's mother is nothing if not brutally honest. And for the first time, she is making it known how she feels about Rousey's coach. AnnMaria DeMars is not a fan of Edmond Tarverdyan as a coach or a human being, she told LatiNation in a recently released video. "I think Edmond is a terrible coach and I will say it publicly," DeMars said. "I think he's a terrible coach. I think he hit the lottery when Ronda walked in there. She was winning before she ever met him. She probably won 99 percent of the judo matches she ever fought in."
