  1. Diaz's retirement always subject to change

    Chad Dundas

    If we learned anything about Nick Diaz from the epic oratory performance he put on at UFC 158, it's that he's not going to lie to us. Diaz can be called a lot of things, but "liar" certainly isn't one of them. If anything, the American ambassador...

  2. Is Silva versus GSP still such a super idea?

    Chad Dundas

    I was once a big proponent of a superfight between Anderson Silva and Georges St-Pierre. Now, after waiting 11 months for St-Pierre to return from a torn ACL and watching him vanquish a game Carlos Condit on Saturday at UFC 154 to finally take th...

  3. Even with Jones-Sonnen, TUF needs reboot

    Chad Dundas

  4. UFC handles crises by its own book

    Chad Dundas

    Even during a year where injury and adversity have been the norm in mixed martial arts, this past weekend felt like an especially hectic one for the UFC. If the August cancelation of UFC 151 represented rock bottom for the organization's ongoing s...

  6. Instant replay, MMA not a perfect match

    Chad Dundas

    In the 27 years since it was first used as an officiating tool by the doomed United States Football League during its 1985 season, instant replay has become so commonplace in professional sports as to barely be noticeable anymore. Replay has long ...

  7. No regrets, no backtracking before UFC 152

    Chad Dundas

    In professional sports, it is often said it pays to have a very short memory. Perhaps that explains why nobody seemed particularly excited about rehashing the recent past on Tuesday as the principals of UFC 152 gathered for a conference call in su...

  8. UFC 152 boom or bust for longshot Belfort

    Chad Dundas

    Vitor Belfort has always been an all-or-nothing kind of guy. Even by the volatile standards of mixed martial arts -- a sport where nearly everyone eventually gets a slice of humble pie -- Belfort's ride has been a special kind of roller coaster. O...

  9. Jones' problems mount after White's rant

    Chad Dundas

    From the deafening silence that descended over MMA's favorite social media platforms Thursday morning, you could tell something big was about to happen. You just didn't know it would be quite this weird. Even as the UFC hastily (and cryptically...

  10. Even secondhand, Diaz doesn't disappoint

    Chad Dundas

    After nearly six months of radio silence, the mixed martial arts community finally received a dispatch from Nick Diaz late last week. The message itself came secondhand but -- just as we suspected all along -- it confirmed two things. First, the f...

  11. A Lesnar comeback? Don't hold your breath

    Chad Dundas

    The only thing we know for sure is that Brock Lesnar didn't show up at UFC 146 by accident. To hear promoters tell it, dislodging Lesnar from the friendly confines of his home in Alexandria, Minn., is akin to moving heaven and earth. The former UF...

  12. How will 'TUF Live' deal with Cruz injury?

    Chad Dundas

    We've already noted that Dominick Cruz was the only guy to truly capitalize on the new live format of "The Ultimate Fighter" this season. Now, it appears he could become a test case for how the show responds to real, actual drama. UFC President Da...

  13. TUF Live still trying to find its stride

    Chad Dundas

    Three episodes into the new "live" incarnation of "The Ultimate Fighter", the only truly memorable and unscripted moment so far has come thanks to UFC bantamweight champion Dominick Cruz. As TUF made the jump from SpikeTV to the FX Network earlier...

  14. Why don't Jones and Silva want to fight?

    Chad Dundas

    Hands down, the most frustrating thing about discussing a potential superfight between Jon Jones and Anderson Silva is that -- for whatever reason -- the two people least interested in making it happen are Jones and Silva themselves. The mere ide...

  15. Time heals rift between Marquardt, Zuffa

    Chad Dundas

    The lesson here is a fairly simple one: Never say never. There was a time, not so long ago, when it seemed like fans had a better chance of hitting the lottery than ever seeing Nate Marquardt fight in the UFC again. Marquardt, we all recall, w...

  16. New drug drama proves Diaz still isn't ready

    Chad Dundas

    The marching orders for Nick Diaz's second tour of duty in the Octagon were clear from the start. Before the start, actually. "The problem with Nick Diaz is, Nick won't play the game," explained Dana White last January, five full months prior to D...
