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.
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).
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.
If you guys are into good podcasts, check out
"The Moment." It's quite motivational as an exploration of success.
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
on the once-whimsical but mostly heartbreaking life of Jason Thacker.
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.
Lots of jawing from Conor as he and Aldo faced off for the first time in Brazil.
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
Am I the only one who starts writing & then deletes more tweets than I actually post?
Have you guys seen this "San Andreas" movie trailer? Whoa.
Rough night for the UFC in that it's tough to continually be building, marketing new champs. Especially losing Pettis' irreplaceable flash.
It's tourney season, must be time for some UConn magic! Boatright is the new Shabazz. Things about to get real interesting. #MarchMadness
That was my way of saying hello after not tweeting for 5 days. How are you all? Talk to me!
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.
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.
My shovel just called in sick. #AnotherSnowDay
Do you, Derrick Lewis RT
Derrick Lewis: Forget UFC title – I just want to pay off house, then I'm done
Rousey vs. Zingano in claymation is pretty outstanding.
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.
Rampage tweeted there's no injunction against him. Not yet, but it's not "just jokes" as he says. Bellator did file.
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.
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."
Ronda doesn't have a peer on the UFC roster. It's Cyborg or bust to make it a contest.
How about we run it back? What's the harm?
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.
This is great MT
must-read of the day if you haven't, ESPN Mag piece on Cat Zingano's path to tonight
B. Always B. A is the choice of heathens, savages & lazy RT
Do you have this issue in your house?
I hope all you basketball players will clothesline someone driving the lane in a proper tribute to Anthony Mason. #RIPMase
Haven't seen most Oscar films but hoping Linklater wins for Boyhood just for his creative experimentation. Wait, there's fights on tonite?
Lovely evening for the furnace to die. I shall soon attempt to make popsicles without use of a freezer.
You know the winter's been brutal when it's 22 degrees and you catch yourself going, "Hmmm, not too bad out today."
I wonder how many fight camps are thinking of moving their headquarters to places like North Korea or Somalia.
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.
UFC announces they'll institute year-round, out-of-competition PED testing through a 3rd party testing org starting 7/1. Good step.
Damn. Will of a champ right there. Great effort from Bendo, such a veteran performance there.
That was a veteran round from Bendo & should slow Thatch down for remainder of the fight. Anyone's to win.
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.
Tired but stayed up 'til 1am for one match. I think Brandon Thatch is about to do work. Tell me I'm wrong.
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.
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.
The NBC Sports Network Twitter feed doesn't even bother to remind people WSOF is on. What does that say?
Rashad Evans: Anthony Johnson will knock out Jon Jones within two rounds
Just an FYI: UFC champ Ronda Rousey will be featured in the Sports Illustrated swimsuit edition when it's released in the coming days.
I have a lot of great followers but this absolutely made my day!
In case you don't follow him,
is tweeting out feedback given to him by doctor who runs lab that did Anderson Silva's test.
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.
So we're left with either abandoning sports or accepting the cat & mouse drug culture as an unwanted but perpetual part of sports.
You can continue to fight the war on PEDs, but it will be endless. No side will ever "win."
That may seem cynical, but we're dealing with imperfect humans. Some of them are going to make dumb decisions against their better judgment.
