Jessica Eye ‘taking a year off’ after being given ‘one more chance’ by UFC
(bloodyelbow.com)
Jessica Eye suffered her fourth consecutive loss in the UFC last month against Bethe Correia at UFC 203. And by the UFC’s trend, it normally means that she’d be in danger of being cut from the roster. UFC bosses Dana White and Sean Shelby, however, made an exception for “Evil” Eye. In an interview with FOX Sports, the number 13-ranked women’s bantamweight fighter also revealed that White even connected her to a sports psychologist who could help her deal with the mental aspect of the fight game.

(mmamania.com)
Johny Hendricks used to be the best 170-pound fighter in the world. Fast forward a few years and Hendricks, 33, is now trying to climb his way out of an 0-2 hole after dropping three of his last four and plummeting to No. 7 in the official UFC rankings. “The last two I have lost, fair and square, I know I have,” Hendricks told ESPN’s Five Rounds podcast. “Realistically, if I go out there — and hey, crazier things have happened — I go out there and lose, that’s when it’s time to say ‘I’m done.’ I’m not gonna keep fighting to hopefully find a person I can beat.”

Jon Jones' lawyer reveals USADA test results, claims supplement was deemed 'contaminated'
(mmamania.com)
The clash between former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) light heavyweight champion Jon Jones and United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) continues in full force after "Bones" tested positive for banned substances prior to UFC 200 this past July. Jones has proclaimed he will return to action soon while a generic form of Cialis has been pinpointed as a possible reason why the 29-year-old popped under USADA watch. It now seems as if Jones is even closer to exonerating himself and returning to a sport he has dominated his entire career. According to Jones' lawyer, Howard Jacobs, the independent tests that USADA administered on the substances Jones took earlier this year have all come back positive, marking the entire crop "contaminated."

Alexander Gustafsson Expected to Be Out Indefinitely
(sherdog.com)
At one point in time, Sweden’s Alexander Gustafsson was one of the most feared light heavyweights in the sport of mixed martial arts. He had lost only once in 16 pro fights and was riding a dominant six-fight winning streak. But when he finally got a crack at the 205-pound title against then-champ Jon Jones at UFC 162 three years ago, he gave it everything he had and came up short after five grueling rounds. But from that point forward, “The Mauler” has had nothing but terrible luck in and out of the Octagon.
