Heatmaps, motion tracking and 'the next frontier' in mixed martial arts statistical data
Why didn't Michael Johnson defeat Beniel Dariush at UFC Fight Night 73? The question isn't meant to evaluate whether we personally agree with the judges awarding Dariush the split decision victory, but rather, why there was controversy in the first place? The judges themselves were not unanimous and neither was the audience watching. If there's smoke, is there also verifiable fire?

Phil Davis: Leaving the UFC 'like breaking up with a girlfriend'
One day recently, Phil Davis had to sit down and edit all his social media. Those are the kinds of things that happen when you leave one job for another -- or, in Davis' case, go from one MMA promotion to another.

Coach: Amanda Nunes' striking is 'light years ahead' of Ronda Rousey's
Few people ever mentioned Amanda Nunes as a worthy title challenger for Ronda Rousey before this past Saturday. But after watching her dazzling display against Sara McMann, they certainly are now. Nunes blew the doors off of McMann at UFC Fight Night 73, stopping the Olympic medalist with a rear-naked choke in less than three minutes, instantly vaulting her name into title contention.

Rory MacDonald denies story he didn't know it was 2015 after loss to Robbie Lawler
The UFC 189 welterweight title fight between Robbie Lawler and Rory MacDonald is all but a shoo-in for 2015's Fight of the Year, and is on the short list of the great MMA fights of all-time. Despite what his boss claimed in the fight's immediate aftermath, however, MacDonald did, in fact, know in what year the bout took place.

Miesha Tate wants a title shot, but if there's another contender: 'Then okay, I'll take her out too'
When it comes to the matter of Ronda Rousey's next title challenger, the UFC certainly has options. Cristiane "Cyborg" Justino remains ever on the periphery of the discussion, and Brazilian veteran Amanda Nunes turned heads with her destructive win over Sara McMann at UFC Fight Night 73. But Miesha Tate, who has twice lost to Rousey before, believes she's earned the right to be called No. 1 contender.

MMA fighter wins title while 12 weeks pregnant in Brazil
Kinberly Novaes was expected to make her RFA debut next week against Jocelyn Jones Lybarger, but won’t be able to step inside the cage. The Brazilian strawweight had some trouble cutting weight as soon as she signed her bout agreement to fight on Aug. 21, and eventually found out that she’s six months pregnant. When she did the math, Novaes realized she fought and won a MMA fight in Brazil while pregnant. She’s having a boy.

UFC champ Fabricio Werdum to appear in Halo 5: Guardians
Fabricio Werdum is a big fan of the Halo series - one of the most successful first-person shooter video games on consoles. Set for release on October 27th, Halo 5: Guardians is the long awaited sequel to Halo 4, and the head brass at Microsoft confirmed at Gamescom on Wednesday that none other than UFC heavyweight champion Fabricio Werdum would be making a cameo appearance in the game. "Fabricio Werdum makes a small cameo appearance in Halo 5: Guardians. He's a big fan of Halo and we're big fans of his, so it's always fun when these kinds of things work out," said a Microsoft spokesperson. "It's a bit of an Easter egg though, so you'll have to really be looking for it."

Despite successful surgery and 'new ankle,' Raphael Assuncao unlikely for 2015 return
The UFC bantamweight title picture continues to be muddled by injuries; top contender Raphael Assuncao will be out of action until at least the end of the year after undergoing successful surgery on his right ankle. Assuncao (23-4 MMA, 7-1 UFC) announced in December that a broken ankle would keep him from consideration for a bout with current UFC bantamweight champion T.J. Dillashaw (12-2 MMA, 8-2 UFC). The original plan was for the Brazilian to recover from the injury without surgery. However, nearly eight months after the original damage occurred, Assuncao, who’s ranked No. 3 in the NOS Energy Drink MMA bantamweight rankings, went under the knife since the recovery process didn’t go as expected. The surgery took place Thursday. Assuncao, via Twitter, confirmed the news and labeled the procedure “successful”

Claudia Gadelha's finger injury pushes Joanna Jedrzejczyk title rematch to 2016
What was originally thought to be a broken finger is actually a torn ligament for UFC women’s strawweight No. 1 contender Claudia Gadelha, whose title fight will have to wait for her recovery. Gadelha (13-1 MMA, 2-1 UFC) hurt her left hand early in the first round of her UFC 190 bout with Jessica Aguilar (19-5 MMA, 0-1 UFC) earlier this month. The Brazilian battled through the damage to take a dominant unanimous-decision win and to set up an anticipated rematch with reigning 115-pound champ Joanna Jedrzejczyk (10-0 MMA, 4-0 UFC). Gadelha hoped to book the fight as soon as possible. However, with the extent of the damage to her hand has now known, Gadelha won’t get her crack at UFC gold until at least January.
