UFC's Tony Martin: No matter outcome, I want people to know I came to fight
Google Tony Martin, and you’ll struggle to find the UFC lightweight’s profile. Tony Martin the cyclist? The singer (well, one of them)? The farmer? The comedian? They’re listed first. But the fighter has a plan to change all that. “My big thing about this fight is, no matter what happens, what the outcome is, I want people to know I came to fight,” Martin told USA TODAY Sports and MMAjunkie. “I didn’t just come to win. Obviously that’s always the goal, but I’m not going to try and go in there and play it safe and hold him down and win a three-round decision. I’m going to come out here, and I just want everyone to know that I’m coming to fight.”

Mark Dickman might aim for two RFA titles to garner UFC's attention
Featherweight Mark Dickman (9-1) expects he’ll take a big step in his career if he’s able to beat UFC vet Justin Lawrence (5-2) on Friday at RFA 17. Perhaps, he wonders, he’ll receive a contract offer from the industry-leader UFC. “I feel I’ve been ready, and a win over a top-10 prospect like (Raoni) Barcelos, and then a win over a UFC vet is definitely going to put me in line or put me on (UFC matchmaker) Sean Shelby’s radar for an upgrade,” he told MMAjunkie Radio.
