Incredible story. RT @MMAFighting: Sara McMann: Title fight against Rousey helped save my father’s life http://t.co/fuXttYcGm5

Anyone at a grocery store on the east coast? Oh, everyone's at a grocery store on the east coast. Lines are 15 deep!
on Saturday
Jones-Gustafsson is still the best fight I've witnessed in person so kinda bummed we won't see a rematch, but damn, AJ brings some heat.
on Saturday
Ref: "Fight back Alex." Then he proceeds to let him take about 35 more blows. Jesus Christ man.
on Saturday
As we wait for Rumble to make his bid to fight for the 205-pound belt, remember when he lost to longtime 155er Rich Clementi? What a sport.
on Saturday
Main event time, who you got? I like Gustafsson here. I feel like Rumble has to win early, once we get past Rd 2, his power likely to fade.
on Saturday
I wish Hendo would move on to his next career of starring in remade spaghetti westerns.
on Saturday
Poor Mousasi seems to be snakebit in his UFC career. Even when he wins he gets no props.
on Saturday
I've always liked watching Mousasi fight. I've always liked watching Dan Hendo fight. I hope it adds up to something great.
on Saturday
I don't know if it's his interest in self-preservation that's holding him back or something else but Davis just never really lets it go.
on Saturday
Phil Davis has some great physical tools but at this stage of his career it seems pretty obvious he's never going to be a fluid striker.
on Saturday
The last 3 fights of tonight's UFC on FOX show should be worth your time (I got Davis, Mousasi & Gus). See you then?
on Friday
Flipping around... BJJ/MMA coach Lloyd Irvin is on tonight's Dateline NBC, case from a couple years ago, he helped catch a killer.
on Thursday
Beginning of the end of Sheldon Silver in NY. And with it, MMA falls out of his noose. As they say, The time is now.
last week
Conor shattered the previous FS1 record, which was held on the channel's kickoff night (Shogun vs. Chael), which drew 1.7 million.
last week
FOX Sports says "UFC Fight Night: All Conor, All the Time" drew in an average of 2.75 million viewers, most on FS1 history.
last week
Adam Cella, who was on televised WSOF main card Sat, made a $1,200 purse. After license fee & fine for missing weight, $835. Yuck.
last week
Conor-Aldo is the new Chael-Anderson. (Minus the wrestling and the PEDs, we hope).
last week
Good job by Conor to create a moment, Aldo on his no-sell & UFC clearly stating what's next. 3-for-3 on promotion.
last week
Even if you think Conor should have fought a wrestler first, don't lie to yourself: Conor vs. Aldo is gonna be a blast.
last week
No question Conor can bang but Aldo's leg kicks are gonna take some steam out of him with a quickness.
last week
So who are the brave souls picking Siver to survive this Irish tidal wave?
last week
Hmmm... Good & close fight but I had Henderson winning there 29-28.
last week
Uriah Hall taking some of his shine time to send a message of peace, love and happiness. I ain't mad at that.
last week
Here's the awful scorecards turned in on Spencer-Pendred fight. Eric Colon & Doug Crosby scored it 30-27 #UFCRobbery http://t.co/Vk11eCLlJT
last week
Now it's official!! RT @ScottieNS13 so Siver has NO chance of winning a decision in Boston....
last week
Spencer beat Pendred just about as bad as the Patriots beat the Colts tonight. Joke decision. Terrible.
last week
Pendred simply lacks fluidity as an athlete & striker. Of course getting his bell rung early could be slowing him down too.
last week
I'm supposed to believe Bill Belichick is a genius when he has Brady and Gronkowski still in under these crappy weather conditions?!
last week
Doomsday's thrown hands with some bangers & survived so that tells you what kind of power Larkin has. Hopefully 170's a new start for him.
last week
Rogan flip-flopped a little bit on whether that was a tap or not. I definitely think it was, Soriano was playing the game.
last week
No, Marshawn Lynch, you are incorrect. Twitter told me this game was over 20 minutes ago.
last week
Ridiculous court sense. RT @TheCauldron: Steph Curry is playing a different game than everyone else https://t.co/JiaFSZVINa
last week
Not listening to Aldo Q&A but sounds like Boston isn't exactly a hospitable host. That's a shame. Aldo is an underrated treasure of fighting
last week
.@davedoylemma Diaz's call w/GSP is the all-time tour de force. Pamper yourself the f#%* out. Lodi soccer mom. Superhero with anti-BS, etc.
last week
Most memorable thing he's ever said! RT @MMAFighting: GSP regrets famous 'I'm not impressed by your performance' line http://t.co/S9dOUwhS4p
last week
I'm no lawyer, but people sue for lesser situations all the time. I doubt he'd want to drag it out though. Just making a point.
last week
If Jones wanted, he may have a legal case: gross negligence led to release of private info that damaged his brand, earnings capacity, etc.
last week
The thing is, there are never any consequences for NSAC screwing up, which they seem to do plenty.
last week
NSAC owes fighters a lot more clarity about what they are doing because it often seems they're making it up on the fly.
last week
Remember that time GSP took heat for grilling NSAC about random drug testing procedures? Jones incident shows he was smart to do it.
last week
Only Anderson Silva, Vitor Belfort, Big Nog, Georges St-Pierre, and Junior dos Santos have passed 1 million.
last week
Small silver lining to his week, @JonnyBones just passed 1 million followers. First American MMA fighter to pass that number.
last week
Well played! RT @NewYorkRic: Congrats, @TwasEbersole! Wait... RT @marc_raimondi: White: Anderson Silva will get title shot if he beats Diaz.
last week
!!??? RT @marc_raimondi: Dana White: Because of the contract, they couldn’t cancel the fight. “He has a right to fight."
last week
So to recap, we can't trust the NSAC to test properly, UFC to divulge, and the lab to properly report results. Wonderful. MMA, y'all.
last week
.@arielhelwani reports that Bob Bennett told him THE LAB screwed up the heading and no street drugs were tested on 12/18. Unreal.
last week
They could have revoked his license before fight. Of course they were never gonna risk their $ cut. Next time they'll act like tough guys.
last week
NSAC says it reserves right to question Jones on drug test in future, completely abandoning reality they didn't bother to before UFC 182.
last week
It's all on the lab paperwork. This is a damn circus. This isn't a slam at Jones in anyway. I hope Jon gets his life together.
