    Chuck Mindenhall

    On the one hand, another nationally televised flyweight title fight is just crazy enough to work at Saturday's UFC on Fox 8 card in Seattle. After all, if frenetic back-and-forth action is what we want in a main event, this is the formula -- even ...

  2. 2013: Year of the contender/belt swapping?

    Chuck Mindenhall

    One question I get just about every week on the Friday chat was some variation of this: Which UFC champion will fall first? For the past year, it's been easy to imagine that none of the current champions would ever lose again, given the state of t...

  6. Grant is the midyear fighter of the year

    Chuck Mindenhall

    A year ago at this time, TJ Grant had just earned a yeoman's decision over Carlo Prater, to the attention of almost nobody. He was 2-0 since moving down to the lightweight division, but there was a colony of contenders well ahead of him in what had b...

  8. Metamoris II technically about roots

    Chuck Mindenhall

    LOS ANGELES -- On Saturday night, it took UFC on Fuel 10 -- a card where the martial arts were very much mixed -- exactly 1:52 to produce its first submission. On Sunday, it took Metamoris II, a no-points jiu-jitsu showcase specifically geared toward...

  9. Bellator turns the 'Page on ideology

    Chuck Mindenhall

  10. Metamoris II's goal is to be 'pointless'

    Chuck Mindenhall

    In the sheer spectacle days of those first UFCs, when things were barely above ground and still so merrily ominous, Royce Gracie struck a chord with the everyman. He was, at first blush, nothing more than a very unimposing skinny dude in a gi. He was...

  11. Postmortem: Grant rises, Silva slides, more

    Chuck Mindenhall

    The thing about Mike Tyson was that everybody saw him coming. From the opening bell it felt as if his opponents were fighting from check, trying to avoid the savage exchange that would end, inevitably, in a violent checkmate. He was cageside for UFC ...

  12. For UFC heavies, trilogies mean rivalries

    Chuck Mindenhall

    LAS VEGAS -- Before UFC 160, the world "rivalry" was contained to hushed voices. For former heavyweight champion Junior dos Santos to get a another shot at current titleholder Cain Velasquez, both had to beat the impediments in front of them. Gues...

  13. Vegas notes: Hunt's on; Barnett back, more

    Chuck Mindenhall

    LAS VEGAS -- By now you know that Mark Hunt was basically a sort of side effect of the Zuffa/Pride deal back in 2007. Riding a two-fight losing streak at the time, he was an unwanted property that couldn't be easily disposed of. But even back then...

  14. UFC 160 primer: Return of the heavyweights

    Chuck Mindenhall

    Heavyweights are now a staple of Memorial Day weekend. Last year, UFC 146 was to be a heavyweight extravaganza like none we'd ever seen. The whole main card was heavyweights, so the word "unprecedented" was being thrown around pretty dramatically. An...

    Chuck Mindenhall

    NEWARK, N.J. -- In a night of strange happenings, perhaps the strangest was saved for last. As most thought he would, Jon Jones (18-1) defended his light heavyweight title against Chael Sonnen at UFC 159 at Newark's Prudential Center, yet he did ...
