'Cyborg' says she's been bullied by UFC president Dana White, champ Ronda Rousey
While their relationship has never been all that great, Cristiane Justino and the UFC seem to be drifting further and further apart. “Cyborg,” the reigning Invicta FC featherweight champion, has long been considered a potential future opponent for UFC bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey. While the 10-pound difference has halted any shot of real fighting in the cage, it’s led to more than a few online feuds between the two fighters, as well as UFC President Dana White.

Bristol Marunde unveils aftermath of broken jaw suffered in RFA 31 headliner
As rough and tumble as the sport of MMA can be, fight fans probably never get comfortable looking at a broken jaw. Veteran Bristol Marunde (16-10) came up short in his bid for the RFA welterweight title this past Friday. In a grueling RFA 31 headliner at Downtown Las Vegas Events Center in Nevada, the AXS TV-televised title bout came to an end in the fourth round, when reigning champ Gilbert Smith (12-4) connected on a flush punch.

Mike Wilkinson on Makwan Amirkhani's callout: You're 'not on my level'
Makwan Amirkhani minced no words when he called for a future matchup with fellow UFC featherweight Mike Wilkinson.

Two UFC Fighters were infected by IV rehydration
I was on a plane going to ref in Arizona once when I noticed a red line running down from my hand, and up a vein in my arm. I knew it was an infection, and marked the progress with a pen as it crawled up my arm. I found a Doc in a Box when I landed and got a scrip for antibiotics and in 12 hours or so, the red line started to recede.

Nik Lentz writes B.J. Penn a poem you have to read
Well, now Lentz has changed his mind – or maybe not. Appearing this week on Chael Sonnen’s “You’re Welcome” podcast, he opined on a potential fight with the now-retired Penn and likened it to fighting a drunk uncle at a family barbecue – neither helpful nor compassionate. To top it off, the American Top Team fighter wrote a poem about Penn before dropping the mic and hanging up.

Joe Schilling 'still 100 percent committed' to doing both kickboxing and MMA
One knockout loss is not going to deter Joe Schilling. The kickboxing phenom has not strayed from his path as an MMA fighter due to a second-round KO defeat against Hisaki Kato at Bellator 139 in June, he told MMA Fighting. Schilling still plans on competing in both sports as often as he can. "I'm still 100 percent committed to fighting," Schilling said. "I like to fight. I fight regularly."

Anthony Johnson wants fight with Ryan Bader, who covets UFC light heavyweight title shot
No doubt to put himself back in line for a title shot, onetime UFC light heavyweight title challenger Anthony Johnson wants a fight with the surging Ryan Bader, his management team said. Johnson (20-5 MMA, 11-5 UFC), who lost a bid for the vacant belt in May to champ Daniel Cormier, would also get a little bit of payback – Bader’s (20-4 MMA, 13-4 UFC) recent win at this month’s UFC 192 came over a longtime teammate, ex-champ Rashad Evans (19-4-1 MMA, 14-4-1 UFC).

UFC's Soa Palelei was 'heartbroken' when he learned he was banned from children's hospital
Soa Palelei has already helped raise more than $60,000 for sick children. This weekend, he'll attempt to raise up to $200,000 more when he spends 24 hours on an exercise machine as part of a telethon. Despite those charitable actions and his role as an ambassador for the Make-A-Wish Foundation, the UFC heavyweight was told last week that he was banned from visiting Princess Margaret Hospital for Children to see the ill kids. Matt Fuller, a retired Australian rules football player, was given the go-ahead. But the hospital told Palelei he could not come. Why? Because Palelei is a UFC fighter.
