Formiga on Jorgensen Finish: “I don’t think it was a head-butt”

While Jussier Formiga was able to return to his winning ways this last Sunday, with a win over Scott Jorgensen, his victory was marred by what appeared to be an illegal headbutt rocking Jorgensen.

Phil Davis: ‘If my opponents use PED’s, I’ve already won’

“I have a whole philosophy on PEDs,” he said. “Guys who use PEDs have to first admit one thing to themselves, [which is] ‘I’m not good enough to win on my own, therefore I need to take something.’ And that’s all the mental edge I need. You’re not good enough to hang in there with...

Dana White: “UFC is worth $3.5 Billion, some would say more”

How much is the UFC actually worth? That’s the ‘Billion’ dollar question. With the never-ending expansion of the world’s MMA leader it’s safe to say that the Fertitta’s small $2 million investment in the 90’s has paid off for them. But how much? In a recent sit-down in London with Lucy Kellaway, columnist for The...

QUICK TWITT | UFC Eyeing Bader or Cavalcante For Cormier’s Next Bout

Anderson Silva Changes Stance On Fighting Friends, Machida/Jacare

Anderson Silva has had a change of heart. At one point in the former champion’s career, he refused to fight his ‘Team Black House’ training partners, Lyoto Machida and Jacare Souza.

“I wasn’t surprised because I knew how tough is for Gina to go down to 135, so (this fight) would need to be a catchweight. Gina Carano is a great athlete and I’d happy if she returns to MMA, doesn’t matter if it’s against Ronda. But she hasn’t fought since 2009. Her last fight was...
