Ronda Rousey doesn’t give a damn about her bad reputation
What happened to Ronda Rousey, the person of multitudes? Before she took the coaching stint on The Ultimate Fighter 18, it felt as though she could literally do no wrong. Rousey was the first women’s UFC champion. She was on glossy magazine covers and became the apple of many media outlet’s eye. There were movie roles to mull over, and sponsors, and television appearances -- the basic spoils of sudden stardom, which she coyly embraced. I called her the Royce Gracie of women’s MMA before she fought Liz Carmouche at UFC 157, because it felt like she was pioneering a movement for future generations. Then she showed up to Vegas and, instead of finding Cat Zingano, whom she was supposed to spend the next six weeks with, there was Miesha Tate, her arch-nemesis with batting eyes like the purring cat that swallowed the canary. This somewhat sadistic -- and perhaps unfair -- surprise was all it took to curdle the milk...

The new year will bring a new online distribution platform for the UFC. Officials from the largest MMA promotion soon will announce a new subscription-based digital network. UFC officials confirmed their plans to USA TODAY Sports and MMAjunkie, and a formal announcement will be scheduled later this month. “The UFC has always been ahead of the game in the digital world,” UFC co-owner and CEO Lorenzo Fertitta said. “The UFC was the first major sporting organization to embrace social media and the first to offer live pay-per-view events across multiple digital platforms. The new digital network continues that tradition of innovation, bringing unrivaled choice to UFC fans.” While UFC officials would not reveal an expected pricing structure for the platform, the network will feature live and on-demand programming, including more than a dozen live fight cards beginning with UFC Fight Night 34 on Jan. 4 at Singapore’s Marina Bay Sands Expo and Convention Centre...

UFC heavyweight Shane Del Rosario clings to life, possibly with rare heart condition
After collapsing and going into full cardiac arrest, UFC heavyweight Shane del Rosario remains in a Newport Beach, Calif. hospital, UFC officials and the fighter’s manager announced on Friday. According to an update the UFC and manager Jason House issued on Friday, doctors haven’t ruled out the possibility that the 30-year-old fighter is suffering from a heart ailment called long QT syndrome. “After arriving at the emergency room in full cardiac arrest on Tuesday morning he was resuscitated to stable rhythm and blood pressure, but has not regained consciousness. Doctors believe he may suffer from a rare condition called Long QT Syndrome, which is a genetic anomaly that can cause a sudden and life threatening heart rhythm abnormality, and may result in sudden death. Tragically, it strikes healthy young people and often is the first and only presentation of a heart problem.”

UFC planning ‘closer to 50' events in 2014 – with new online network
According to UFC President Dana White, the organization plans to host 50 worldwide events next year, and a new online/digital network will be the exclusive way to watch some of them. Although White shared only basic details about the new venture, he said the new network will serve an important purpose. Events will continue to air on pay-per-view, FOX, FOX Sports 1 and FOX Sports 2 in 2014, but some of the UFC’s international events are geared toward region-specific audiences. However, if you’re in the UFC’s substantial North American fan base, the online network will assure you can watch all those overseas bouts. “People don’t understand … the fights that we do in China are for China,” he told MMAjunkie. “The fights we do in Europe are going to be for Europe. But with this new digital network that we’re launching, people who are hardcore fans and want to watch the fights will be able to. “It’s a completely new experience because what it’s going to be based around is live fights. Obviously, you’re going to have access to the library and lots of other programming that’s going to be on the network, but there’s going to be a ridiculous amount of live fights.”
