White: Rafael dos Anjos injured, but likely to meet Cerrone-Nurmagomedov winner
Newly minted UFC lightweight champion Rafael dos Anjos’ performance against Anthony Pettis was shocking to behold, but it might be all the more impressive considering an obstacle he overcame to make it to the fight. Dos Anjos (24-7 MMA, 12-5 UFC), according to UFC President Dana White, tore his medial collateral ligament (MCL) two weeks prior to his title-winning headliner against champ Pettis (18-3 MMA, 5-2 UFC) on Saturday at UFC 185. White, speaking to MMAjunkie at the post-event news conference at Dallas’ American Airlines Center, joked: “Just my luck, guy who wins the title is hurt.” Pettis, of course, emerged from a title winning performance in August 2013 with an injured knee that kept him sidelined for more than a year. Dos Anjos’ injury, however, might not be as severe. An MCL injury is considered less severe than a tear of the posterior cruciate ligament (PCL), which Pettis suffered.

Chris Cariaso: If Henry Cejudo doesn't make weight, I'm not fighting him
If Henry Cejudo doesn’t make weight, Saturday’s UFC 185 event is going to need a new pay-per-view opener. Chris Cariaso (17-6 MMA, 7-4 UFC), who meets Cejudo (7-0 MMA, 1-0 UFC) in the first PPV bout at Dallas’ American Airlines Center, is putting his foot down when it comes to the former Olympic gold-medal wrestler, who’s repeatedly struggled to make the 126-pound limit for the flyweight division.

Munoz: Hard to speculate if Rousey can beat men
"Someone in the UFC said that Ronda can beat 50% of the men, but it's totally different man," Munoz explained during a live chat with ABS-CBN Sports. "It's totally different. It's hard to say, and you can speculate all you want. She can definitely compete, but I don't know if it's true." "She is truly unbelievable though. She's great and she's an amazing person," he said. "She can definitely match them technique per technique (in grappling)," Munoz said about Rousey's chances. "I definitely believe she can compete with them, but it's too hard to speculate if she can actually beat (most of the men) in MMA."

Roy Nelson on UFC's new drug policy: 'Is it really going to make a difference?'
DALLAS -- Roy Nelson could be accused of a lot of things, but being a drug cheat isn't one of them. Three years before increased testing was the topic du jour in mixed martial arts, Nelson was leading the drug-free campaign largely by himself, attempting to sway opponents Shane Carwin and Matt Mitrione into signing up for Voluntary Anti-Doping Association (VADA) testing in late 2012, then signing himself up anyway once both men balked at the opportunity.

Chris Cariaso reveals he suffered crippling anxiety attack 'five minutes' before UFC 178 title fight
The cruel thing about the bright lights? No one ever knows how they'll react until they're hurled underneath them. For some, like UFC 185 co-headliner Joanna Jedrzejczyk, the leap from anonymity to stardom is a seamless one, a long-awaited validation that, for however fleeting it may be, can be embraced with a smile and a wink. Not all athletes are so lucky, though. (Courtesy of on Twitter)
