  9. Punishments start fitting the crimes in MMA

    Chuck Mindenhall

    Marijuana isn't a performance-enhancing drug, you say? Try running that nonsense by any guitarist in a jam band. All that noodling is backlit by something, brother. In MMA, though, marijuana doesn't enhance fight night performance. In fact, it pr...

    Chuck Mindenhall

    Talks of a superfight are revving up because of something Dana White said. But get this -- this "something" he said came in a conversation where he also swore off speaking about things prematurely. As far as paradoxes go, this one went from zero...

    Chuck Mindenhall

    Former Strikeforce champion Nick Diaz says he wants current UFC titlist Anderson Silva -- when Diaz comes back from his suspension. The time away has apparently opened up his imagination, and out flies his always-fascinating fancy. Silva's camp s...

  13. Title fights at a premium after Cruz injury

    Chuck Mindenhall

    Training camps have become their own game of roulette, and Dominick Cruz -- who trains fiendishly year round -- is the latest casualty. Cruz tore his anterior cruciate ligament Thursday while prepping for his July 7 title fight with Urijah Faber,...

    Chuck Mindenhall

    NEW YORK -- For as stacked as the UFC 146 card appears for Memorial Day weekend, it's really two title fights (Urijah Faber/Dominick Cruz and Chael Sonnen/Anderson Silva) and a pack of glitzy non-consequential match-ups (Cung Le/Rich Franklin and For...
