Former Bantamweight Champion Trashes UFC 177 Main Event: 'F--KING BULLS--T'
Sorry Dana, you can't blame the "despicable media" for this one, as your own No. 5-ranked bantamweight Eddie Wineland -- who held the 135-pound strap in WEC -- trashes the UFC 177 main event featuring TJ Dillashaw against late-replacement Joe Soto. To be fair, I'm not sure the promotion had much choice, but there is still plenty of frustration to go around. Find out how the story ends right here.
Demian Maia sidelined indefinitely following severe bone infection
Longtime Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) veteran, Demian Maia, will be out of mixed martial arts (MMA) action for the foreseeable future as the submission wizard is currently battling a severe bone infection in his shoulder.
According to a recent report from UFC Tonight, Maia obtained the infection, osteomyelitis, in his right clavicle bone which is usually caused by bacteria.
