  1. 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...

  2. Bellator turns the 'Page on ideology

    Chuck Mindenhall

    The word "popularity" trumps a word like "retread" six days of the week. It did in the case of Quinton Jackson -- the popular, yet polarizing, former UFC champion who just became Bellator's latest acquisition, according to a Spike TV press release. "...

  3. 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...

  4. 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...

  5. Carmont with a chance to jump his stock

    Chuck Mindenhall

    MONTREAL -- Francis Carmont is a 2013 sleeper. Not many people are talking too loudly about him, but the hulking 185-pound Frenchman has that sense of pending noise -- sort of like a French Glover Teixeira. After all, here's another fighter in his 30...

  6. Rua/Vera for title shot a bit bewildering

    Chuck Mindenhall

    We might not know what's next for Anderson Silva, but we might know what's ahead for Jon Jones. It was announced during the UFC on FOX 4 news conference that the winner of Mauricio Rua and Brandon Vera will fight for the 205-pound belt next. No, i...

  7. Like 'Ace', Sonnen forced into new ventures

    Chuck Mindenhall

    Anderson Silva has lorded over the UFC's middleweight division long enough to create dilemmas for challengers. Dilemmas that look like specific little purgatories. Dilemmas that look like harsh reality checks (to guys like Patrick Cote and Th...

  8. Jones and Silva need to see the big picture

    Chuck Mindenhall

    Jon Jones doesn't necessarily want to fight Anderson Silva. Worse, the feeling seems mutual. This is a set of preferences that can't help but play games with the spirit of competition. In fact, it seems all backward when you consider that the spir...

  9. The old guard, the new guard .. and Teixeira

    Chuck Mindenhall

    Glover Teixeira's greatest enemy to date has been access. For the last few years, visa problems have kept him out of the UFC. Before he defeated Kyle Kingsbury at UFC 146 to point a sudden "I'm coming" finger at Jon Jones, the last time he'd fough...

  10. UFC 134 Journal -- Day Three

    Chuck Mindenhall

    RIO DE JANEIRO -- You had to be invited, but the Shooto event that happened on Thursday on a local Rio hillock was fireworks. Yes, Marvin Eastman was knocked out by Glover Teixeira in the first round, but that in itself was not altogether unexpec...
