  1. 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 ...

  2. 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...

  3. Featherweights to take shape in Chicago

    Chuck Mindenhall

    There's a paradox going on for this weekend's Chicago card: People are talking about the flyweights not getting talked about. In fact, the ever-coveted "casual" viewer has no way of knowing that there is such a thing as the flyweight division, bec...

  4. Pettis/Cerrone the subliminal main event

    Chuck Mindenhall

    Title shots are nice, but they're hard to come by in the UFC's lightweight division. Anthony Pettis knows. Since coming over as the reigning WEC champion a little more than two years ago, he has lived in a world of obstructions. There was the Fran...

  5. Melendez the right choice for Henderson

    Chuck Mindenhall

    It's always a good problem to have two (or three) contenders with strong cases to fight for a belt. That's the perpetual state of the UFC's always-bountiful lightweight division. Ever since Frankie Edgar clogged the top with his battery of rematches ...

  6. Guillard can salvage 2012 with one swing

    Chuck Mindenhall

    When Melvin Guillard stepped into the Octagon against Donald Cerrone at UFC 150 in Denver, it became a night of dubious firsts, because Guillard had never missed weight before, and he had never been knocked out. You know how things unfolded. Th...

  7. Notes and Nuggets: Denver edition

    Chuck Mindenhall

    DENVER -- There was an air of "next thing's first" at the UFC 150 news conference at the Fillmore Auditorium. Though Donald Cerrone will face his friend Melvin Guillard in the co-main event on Saturday night, Cerrone used the platform on several occa...

  8. Complications of an Edgar victory are real

    Chuck Mindenhall

    All this talk of Frankie Edgar and rematches makes for a potentially uncomfortable situation brewing in Denver. What if Edgar wins a close fight over Benson Henderson this weekend at UFC 150? What if it's an egregiously controversial decision, the ki...

  9. Unlikely contenders emerging in the UFC

    Chuck Mindenhall

    Six months ago at UFC 139, Martin Kampmann was getting by Rick Story to stay relevant in the UFC. In fact, after having lost two bouts in a row to Jake Shields and Diego Sanchez, Kampmann might have needed that victory over Story just to stay employe...

  10. Cerrone plays it smart by airing his druthers

    Chuck Mindenhall

    In the UFC, the latest winner will always have the most compelling case. That's the nature of hype, and hype has always been the game. More specifically, hype is the essence that drives the thing forward. By know everybody knows this. And if they ...

  11. The 'other' Diaz makes most of his platform

    Chuck Mindenhall

    EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- When Nate Diaz bolted the 155-pound division 2.5 years ago, he had lost three of four fights and was in need of a change. He tried to kick-start his career as a welterweight; and yet, after four fights there, he went 2-2....

  12. Jones, Evans and the inevitable clash

    Chuck Mindenhall

    This is a fight week that has stretched on for a year -- which is nothing for a conflict that has always been the case. Even when Jon Jones and Rashad Evans were training partners in Albuquerque, N.M., one fighter was never going to be "off limits...

  13. Pettis could find himself in similar fix

    Chuck Mindenhall

    A lot of things should go into booking Benson Henderson's next fight, beginning with marketability and ending with scruples. Does the UFC book an immediate rematch with a very deserving Frankie Edgar? Or do they give the shot to Anthony Pettis, w...

  14. Title contention novel for veteran Lauzon

    Chuck Mindenhall

    How fast do things change in the UFC's lightweight division? As quickly as the weather changes in Colorado. Since Frankie Edgar became the champion nearly two years ago, the road to the title has been a course of trip wires, booby hatches and rabb...

  15. Cerrone goes down swinging with no regrets

    Chuck Mindenhall

    LAS VEGAS -- The volume in which Donald Cerrone fought in 2011 couldn't catch up to the volume of jabs coming at him as the year closed out. Cerrone looked to become the first fighter to win five fights in a calendar year in the UFC since Roger Huert...

  16. Sticks and stones break bones, as does Cerrone

    Chuck Mindenhall

    Donald Cerrone knows what he's doing, and this is just one of those situations where a five-fight winning streak and this weekend's catapult bout to the lightweight title picture adds up to Nam Phan. It's almost a cliche at this point -- all roads le...
