UFC Faces New Set of Battles
(cnbc.com)
The women's bantamweight title bout continued the fast-paced Ultimate Fighting Championship's return to form after an injury-riddled 2014 that saw bad news on the revenue and credit rating fronts. Now, the once high-flying UFC is trying hard to put last year behind it. "It put in a level of volatility to our business that we've never seen. To be honest with you, it was kind of an outlier year. We've had injuries we've had to deal with, but nothing to that magnitude," UFC Chairman and CEO Lorenzo Fertitta told CNBC...

Schaub: Given penalties, PED use makes sense
(mixedmartialarts.com)
Schaub compellingly made the case that given the current penalties for PED use, it makes sense to use them. "Listen, I would love to hear an argument for why I shouldn't do steroids," he said. "Give me one. Let's say I take steroids and test positive. Say I'm a young kid [getting to the UFC] and I ask my dad, 'Dad, why shouldn't I take steroids?' Can I say, 'Well, you'll never be world champ.' That's not true. Anderson Silva's world champ. 'Well, you'll never fight for a title.' That's not true.

Bellator 133 purses: 32k-1k
(mixedmartialarts.com)
The salaries reflect an unfortunate reality in the sport. Bellator is the second largest promotion in North American, and had ten fighters on the card making 1/1. The main event fighter, former league middleweight champion Alexander Shlemenko got $20,000 to win. In MMA, it gets worse from there, as you move into smaller promotions. The above figures are the fighter payout information that promoters are required by state law to submit to the California athletic commission, including the winners' bonuses. The figures do not represent a full accounting of each fighter's income.

Quarter-circle forward, punch. Anyone who's ever played any iteration of 'Street Fighter' or 'Mortal Kombat' (or any fighting video game, really) knows the button-mashing combo for a fireball. And wouldn't you know it, Shane Campbell busted one out during his wild body shot KO of Derek Boyle at WSOF 18.
