Ben Askren crashes TUF 19 Finale, heckles 'fat' Johny Hendricks and 'bald' Dana White
Former Bellator welterweight champion and current ONE FC headliner, Ben Askren, was in town over Fourth of July Weekend and made a stop by The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 19 Finale, which took place on July 6, 2014, inside Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada (results here). And that's about as close to the Octagon as "Funky" can get.

Cat Zingano ready to fight, even if it's against Rousey at UFC 176
Cat Zingano is cleared and ready to fight, even if it means a short-notice headliner at next month’s UFC 176 event. As MMAjunkie reported earlier this week, UFC featherweight champion Jose Aldo (24-1 MMA, 6-0 UFC) was forced out of the Aug. 2 event’s headliner against Chad Mendes (16-1 MMA, 7-1 UFC). The bout is expected to be rebooked in the fall, and as of now, a new main event hasn’t been announced. However, at least one contender said she’d be ready for next month’s pay-per-view event, which takes place at Los Angeles’ Staples Center. Zingano (8-0 MMA, 1-0 UFC), who had been promised a title shot with women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey in 2013 before a knee injury sidelined the challenger, was recently cleared to resume training. In fact, she said she’s been talking to UFC officials about a potential next booking.

A look at Uriah Hall's broken toe following UFC 175
LAS VEGAS – And this little piggy is going to see the doctor… After an up-and-down early UFC career that saw Uriah Hall go from can’t-miss prospect to a potential bust, the middleweight took advantage of a slot on Saturday’s UFC 175 pay-per-view main card and posted his second straight win. However, while few doubted the 29-year-old’s striking prowess, the same can now be said for his heart and toughness. Despite mangling his toe in the first round – and despite a watchful eye from the cageside physician who appeared at least tempted to halt the bout – Hall (9-4 MMA, 2-2 UFC) fought on and eventually claimed a victory over Thiago “Marreta” Santos (9-3 MMA, 1-2 UFC) via unanimous decision Don't scroll down if you don't want to see it! ..........
