With a win over Rousey, UFC's Miesha Tate would want 'Cyborg' to drop to 135
(mmajunkie.com)
Miesha Tate must first see whether she's able to avenge a gruesome submission loss to now-UFC bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey, who took her Strikeforce belt and set the stage for for her rise to stardom. After replacing the injured Cat Zingano, she'll get a chance to do that when the two rematch at UFC 168 on Dec. 28 in Las Vegas, which follows a stint serving as opposing coaches on "The Ultimate Fighter 18."

Dana White rips Viacom/Bellator: 'They have no f--- clue what they're doing'
(mmafighting.com)
With Bellator's ratings on Spike TV taking a dip in recent weeks, UFC president Dana White is responding like a shark smelling blood. The recent news that Bellator is considering having Quinton "Rampage" Jackson box aging legend Roy Jones Jr., in White's view, is proof Bellator parent company Viacom is thrashing around trying to figure out a way forward...

UFC prez on Tito Ortiz's rumored comeback: 'Obviously, Tito needs money'
(mmajunkie.com)
UFC President Dana White isn't exactly waiting with open arms if Tito Ortiz decides to come out of retirement. In fact, he's pretty much the opposite of a cheerleader when it comes to the UFC Hall of Famer's recent hints at a return. "Who gives a s--t?" White blurted when asked by MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) for his thoughts on Ortiz's recent musings on the topic...

UFC 163 Fighter Ian McCall: “I’ve Kind of Blown My UFC Career So Far”
(mmaweekly.com)
When former Tachi Palace Fights flyweight champion Ian McCall inked a deal with the UFC in late 2011, he had high expectations. He entered the 2012 UFC Flyweight Tournament to determine the inaugural UFC 125-pound champion. He faced Demetrious Johnson in the opening round and the two fought to a draw. Johnson was originally declared the winner, but after a scoring error correction, the fight was ruled a draw. Johnson defeated McCall by unanimous decision in a rematch...

If Rory MacDonald gets past Jake Ellenberger, he faces his toughest decision
(mmafighting.com)
Ever since the then 21-year-old Rory MacDonald threw around Nate Diaz before 55,000 fans at the Rogers Centre in Toronto en route to a unanimous decision win, people have labeled him as the next Georges St-Pierre, or as the heir apparent to St-Pierre’s crowns. St-Pierre is not just the UFC welterweight champion, but the face of the sport in Canada. He earns millions in endorsements to go along with being the sport’s biggest drawing card. MacDonald (14-1) was 20 when he moved from Kelowna, British Columbia, across the country to Montreal in search of the training that he felt would allow him to reach his potential as a fighter. That meant training at Tri-Star Gym, the home of St-Pierre...

Upon retiring from fighting, Matt Hughes took on an entirely new role as the UFC Vice President of Athletic Development and Government Relations. Much like his pioneering role as a fighter in the cage, Hughes is now learning on the job outside of the cage, trying to figure out how he can best help the newer fighters coming into the sport prepare for the various aspects of their career outside of actually fighting...

UFC Fight Night 28 headliner Glover Teixeira: 'I'm ready to fight for the title'

While he's had just four fights in the UFC, Glover Teixeira's incredible power and craft submission skills have already made him a top contender in the promotion's light-heavyweight division. While the humble 33-year-old hasn't yet pressed the issue, he wants to make sure everyone understands it's not because he's not ready for the challenge...

The UFC is His Home, but Leonard Garcia Looking to a Legacy FC Takeover After Changing Camps

Suffering through a five-fight losing streak, former WEC/UFC featherweight Leonard Garcia recognizes what he’s been doing wrong. “I had a couple fights where I had been doing the same thing I’d done before and wasn’t moving forward with things I should have,” he said. “I was relying too much on landing the big punch.” Not only does he feel like he was doing the wrong thing in fights, but also in training, thus Garcia has been working with a new team...

UFC welterweight Rory MacDonald could be on a collision course with fellow Tri Star training partner and UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre, but MacDonald doesn’t want to talk about it. MacDonald (14-1) is ranked third on the UFC’s official 170-pound rankings behind Johny Hendricks and Carlos Condit. (St-Pierre is the titleholder and holds the rank of champion and isn’t included in the top ten UFC rankings.)...

For James Krause, two bonuses, one drug test, $100K and a lot of paranoia

In the month since his submission victory over Sam Stout at UFC 161 in Winnipeg, James Krause has had plenty of time to think about what substances may or may not have been floating around his system. "You just start thinking about everything," Krause told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com). "Every little thing runs through your mind, like, 'What did I have, what did I eat?'"

Cung Le really wanted a fight with Michael Bisping, but with the potential bout now a no-go, the UFC middleweight is hoping to focus his efforts on China. More specifically, he's hoping a potential coaching gig on "The Ultimate Fighter: China," which MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) recently reported as likely, comes to fruition. Le, a longtime Sanshou kickboxer, believes a footprint in the country could be massive for the UFC...

Jon Fitch: I have fifteen fights left in me
(mmafighting.com)
When Jon Fitch was cut from the UFC following a unanimous decision loss to Demian Maia at UFC 156 in February, UFC President Dana White said the welterweight - while still a good fighter and a guarantee to be a champion in a smaller organization - was basically on the downside of his career. Even at age 35, Fitch and his supporters bristled at the idea the still top-ten ranked welterweight was in any decline. Still, it didn't matter. His first fight in his new home of the World Series of Fighting (WSOF) would be a good opportunity to bounce back...

Silva defies clowning critics: 'Part of the show'
(mmafighting.com)
It took just days for Anderson Silva to change his mind. His legacy as a champion was not over. His immediate rejection of a rematch would not stick. He wanted a sequel with Chris Weidman, and there was no reason to wait. So on Saturday, exactly one week after "the Spider" got caught in Weidman's web, the Brazilian legend signed a bout agreement for UFC 168 on Dec. 28. He is favored to win the rematch, at least according to oddsmakers, but most think he will need to fight more conservatively, to tone down his antics of bobbing, weaving and taunting. After all, it was in the immediate seconds after pretending he had been wobbled when Weidman stepped in and landed the game-changer. But Silva? He doesn't want to hear any talk that he's gone too far...

Cris Cyborg Talks Invicta FC, Coenen, UFC and Rousey
(punchdrunkgamer.com)
Some tidbits.....

PDG: With the PED situation behind you, what was the biggest lesson you learned from that experience? Cyborg Santos: Don’t trust anyone! And I have to control my weight. Cutting to 145 is always a battle, I made a mistake and now it is behind me and it is time to move on. PDG: You’ve had words with Ronda Rousey in the past. What do you think of the animosity between the two of you now? Is it all for the cameras or is it genuine? Cyborg Santos: It is all genuine, I want to knock her out. PDG: Despite the war of words, what do you think of Rousey as a fighter? Cyborg Santos: She is a one trick pony and she ran from me to 135. I have nothing else to say.

In the 13 years that Zuffa has owned the Ultimate Fighting Championship, it has taken the promotion from the brink of extinction to one of the hottest sports properties on the planet. Over the course of that time, they’ve also provided the opportunity for numerous fighters to not only make a living in their chosen sport, but to thrive. Several have gone on to become millionaires, and many have cemented legacies. But along with any success story come the critics who believe that things can always be better...
