Fortunes changed for five at UFC Fight Night 26
Of all people, it was Brock Lesnar who made one of the most salient points about MMA a few years back. When the discussion came about somebody beating somebody else, and how it showed one fighter was better than the other, he noted that a win doesn’t prove absolutes like that. He noted fighting was a sport of quarter-inches. The punch, knee or kick lands in the right spot, just misses the spot, or doesn’t land at all is often just one of those things. Lesnar knew from first-hand experience. One of his biggest wins, over Shane Carwin with another ref, could have been a loss that destroyed his career as a headliner.

Today, Alistair Overeem is an overrated bust in many people’s eyes, another in the realm of Japanese superstars built on tomato cans who got exposed in the regulated UFC environment. And it’s hard to argue that...

Despite history, UFC Fight Night 26 winners Faber and McDonald open to matchup
Urijah Faber and Michael MacDonald both are UFC bantamweights who've fallen short to champions. But it's undeniable they belong at the top of the division. The fighters both were victorious at this past Saturday's UFC Fight Night 26 event, which begs the question whether they should compete to see who should be first to get another shot at a belt.

UFC Will Be Back in Boston; Dana White, With a Wink, Thanks the Union and City Council President
Less than a week ago, UFC president Dana White was starting to question why he would bring his show to Boston after all the hoops and hurdles that his company faced in pulling off UFC Fight Night 26: Shogun vs. Sonnen on Saturday night at the TD Garden.

Shogun vs. Sonnen draws remarkable ratings on FOX Sports 1
FOX Sports 1 got off to an impressive debut Saturday night doing a 1.38 rating and 1.78 million viewers for the three-hour main card headlined by Mauricio "Shogun" Rua vs. Chael Sonnen based on Nielsen's fast nationals. The rating is the key, because FOX Sports 1 was not in as many homes as FX. The company's most successful card on FX, the Jan. 19 show headlined by Michael Bisping vs. Vitor Belfort, did a 1.27 rating and 1.86 million viewers. Essentially, on its first night in existence, the UFC show, had it been in the same number of homes would have beaten the highest-rated UFC card to date on FX, an established top-tier cable channel...
