Brendan Schaub confirmed on today's Fighter & the Kid show that he's moving down to light-heavyweight. No date set yet for 205 debut.
yesterday
If Dana White is right and McGregor-Aldo does a $7M gate, it will break the U.S. MMA record, held by Silva-Sonnen II ($6.9M).
on Thursday
It's gonna be April soon yet there's snow in the forecast this weekend. We are living in a real-life Arendelle. The struggle is real, Olaf.
on Thursday
If you guys are into good podcasts, check out @briankoppelman's "The Moment." It's quite motivational as an exploration of success.
on Tuesday
Brock Lesnar just said on ESPN his legacy as a fighter in the octagon is over, after contemplating a comeback. He drove huge interest.

A great longform by @ChuckMindenhall, on the once-whimsical but mostly heartbreaking life of Jason Thacker. http://t.co/0msxQfmO5M
last week
I guess it makes some sense that UFC didn't waste a strong card against March Madness. I don't see much compelling on tonite's show.
last week
Lots of jawing from Conor as he and Aldo faced off for the first time in Brazil. http://t.co/SU7gcSdohN
last week
Seems we may see a Rousey vs. Tate III. If Rousey beats Correia, and Tate def Jessica Eye this summer, they will fight again, re: Dana White
last week
Am I the only one who starts writing & then deletes more tweets than I actually post?
last week
Have you guys seen this "San Andreas" movie trailer? Whoa. https://t.co/3DqFJIGvg3
last week
Rough night for the UFC in that it's tough to continually be building, marketing new champs. Especially losing Pettis' irreplaceable flash.
last week
It's tourney season, must be time for some UConn magic! Boatright is the new Shabazz. Things about to get real interesting. #MarchMadness
last week
That was my way of saying hello after not tweeting for 5 days. How are you all? Talk to me!
last week
Did you know Sam Smith's "Stay with Me" is still on the Billboard Top 50? It came out last March! Tom Petty thanks you for your patronage.
last week
That Delta jet skidding, crashing thru the fence and stopping just short of the water is movie stuff. For once, a real-life happy ending.
last week
My shovel just called in sick. #AnotherSnowDay
last week
Do you, Derrick Lewis RT @MMAjunkie: Derrick Lewis: Forget UFC title – I just want to pay off house, then I'm done http://t.co/rGdCF5btsl
last week
Rousey vs. Zingano in claymation is pretty outstanding. https://t.co/hbcTF9bxFF
last week
With this filing, it virtually guarantees Rampage won't be on UFC 186 card. Too much risk for Zuffa, little chance of settling that quick.
last week
Rampage tweeted there's no injunction against him. Not yet, but it's not "just jokes" as he says. Bellator did file. http://t.co/7WJfrCkXv6
last week
I'd love to see UFC/Bellator pull off a trade rather than litigate re:Rampage. A much less expensive proposition & could benefit both sides.
last week
Ronda is like Matt Damon in Good Will Hunting. "Do you know how easy this is for me? Do you have any f***** idea? This is a f****** joke."
last week
Ronda doesn't have a peer on the UFC roster. It's Cyborg or bust to make it a contest.
last week
How about we run it back? What's the harm?
last week
Ronda Rousey is an awesome fighter & ambassador but I don't know how anyone can root against Cat Zingano given her hellish path to get here.
last week
This is great MT @bokamotoESPN: must-read of the day if you haven't, ESPN Mag piece on Cat Zingano's path to tonight http://t.co/7pL06ERqK1
last week
B. Always B. A is the choice of heathens, savages & lazy RT @MelissaJoanHart: Do you have this issue in your house? http://t.co/vOY6dLzunR
last week
I hope all you basketball players will clothesline someone driving the lane in a proper tribute to Anthony Mason. #RIPMase
last week
Haven't seen most Oscar films but hoping Linklater wins for Boyhood just for his creative experimentation. Wait, there's fights on tonite?
last week
Lovely evening for the furnace to die. I shall soon attempt to make popsicles without use of a freezer.
last week
You know the winter's been brutal when it's 22 degrees and you catch yourself going, "Hmmm, not too bad out today."
last week
I wonder how many fight camps are thinking of moving their headquarters to places like North Korea or Somalia.
last week
Four-year ban for first offenders could be the standard. That is a very strong deterrent. Let's hope final plan reaches this original idea.
last week
UFC announces they'll institute year-round, out-of-competition PED testing through a 3rd party testing org starting 7/1. Good step.
last week
Damn. Will of a champ right there. Great effort from Bendo, such a veteran performance there.
last week
That was a veteran round from Bendo & should slow Thatch down for remainder of the fight. Anyone's to win.
last week
This pace should be no issue for Thatch. He can strike all day, Benson can only slow him by making it grueling & ugly with wrestling.
last week
Tired but stayed up 'til 1am for one match. I think Brandon Thatch is about to do work. Tell me I'm wrong.
last week
Benson is incredibly gutsy for taking this fight with all risk, little reward but this is gonna be a tough one for him to navigate.
last week
Brandon Thatch's wrestling is a huge ? mark but I can't see Bendo getting past his length with much success. BT too polished striking wise.
last week
The NBC Sports Network Twitter feed doesn't even bother to remind people WSOF is on. What does that say?
last week
Nah. RT @davedoylemma: Rashad Evans: Anthony Johnson will knock out Jon Jones within two rounds http://t.co/EXG1wRfoT5
last week
Just an FYI: UFC champ Ronda Rousey will be featured in the Sports Illustrated swimsuit edition when it's released in the coming days.
last week
I have a lot of great followers but this absolutely made my day! http://t.co/YMffIiGdRq
last week
In case you don't follow him, @latimespugmire is tweeting out feedback given to him by doctor who runs lab that did Anderson Silva's test.
last week
To clarify, I'm not saying assume every athlete is on PEDs. Just that when you look at a sporting event, playing field is tilted somewhere.
last week
So we're left with either abandoning sports or accepting the cat & mouse drug culture as an unwanted but perpetual part of sports.
last week
You can continue to fight the war on PEDs, but it will be endless. No side will ever "win."
last week
That may seem cynical, but we're dealing with imperfect humans. Some of them are going to make dumb decisions against their better judgment.
