  1. Even with Jones-Sonnen, TUF needs reboot

    Chad Dundas

    Chael Sonnen and Jon Jones are already in midseason form. With two weeks to go before they don their team colors and become rival coaches on season 17 of "The Ultimate Fighter", both the UFC light heavyweight champion and his out-of-the-blue chall...

  2. 'Big Foot' spoils party for hobbled Browne

    Chad Dundas

    MINNEAPOLIS -- Not so fast, UFC heavyweights. Antonio Silva proved he won't go quietly into the night on Friday, as he corralled a limping Travis Browne and slugged his way to a first round TKO victory in the main event of UFC on FX 5. It was ...

  3. Browne keeping it light for 'Big Foot'

    Chad Dundas

    MINNEAPOLIS -- A person can extrapolate a lot from a weigh-in, almost all of it pure guesswork. However, one thing is certain of Travis Browne leading up to his heavyweight main event fight against Antonio "Bigfoot" Silva this weekend at UFC on FX 5....

  4. UFC 152 best remembered in shades of gray

    Chad Dundas

    In the coming days, it no doubt will be tempting to paint Jon Jones' dominant win over Vitor Belfort at UFC 152 as one of two extremes: either the latest triumphant example of the champion's greatness, or an empty gesture in a fight that never should...

  5. 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...

  6. Jones' work clearly (almost) done at 205

    Chad Dundas

    A lot of great things happened on Saturday during the UFC's fourth live broadcast on Fox. The show was outstanding, the fights action-packed, and aside from the possible ratings black hole of going head-to-head with the summer Olympics, the fight ...

  7. Optimistic Overeem doesn't seem to get it

    Chad Dundas

    Alistair Overeem has grown accustomed to squashing things. For the past five years, Overeem has stomped unabated though the heavyweight landscape of both mixed martial arts and professional kickboxing, amassing a combined record of 20-2-1, capturi...

  8. More fighters should follow JDS on PEDs

    Chad Dundas

    It's pretty out of character for the UFC's happy-go-lucky heavyweight champion to start making demands. I guess when even Junior dos Santos stops smiling, you know you've got a problem. To date, dos Santos' public image has been built on his b...

  9. 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...

  10. Mir faces new stage in Hall of Fame career

    Chad Dundas

    Frank Mir was 22 years old when he made his Octagon debut at UFC 34. It was Mir's third pro MMA fight, and in it the fresh-faced Brazilian jiu-jitsu purple belt took just a minute, five seconds to tap out (and injure, from the look of it) two-time...

  11. In defeat, Barnett makes case for UFC return

    Chad Dundas

    Conventional wisdom told us the Strikeforce heavyweight grand prix might be a win-or-go-home proposition for Josh Barnett. Given the fighter's notoriously frigid relationship with Zuffa, LLC, we suspected all along the only way he might get back i...

  12. Lawal's new deal: Home run or strikeout?

    Chad Dundas

    The mixed martial arts purist in all of us is probably supposed to be a little horrified that Muhammed Lawal reportedly plans to straddle the fence between our sport and professional wrestling. Given the special kind of ridicule many fight fans re...

  13. Is Evans overmatched? Or just overlooked?

    Chad Dundas

    By now, most everything that could be said about Saturday night's UFC 145 main event has been said ad nauseam. We've had more than a year to stew on the rivalry between Jon Jones and Rashad Evans, our collective patience tested through a couple of...

  14. UFC on odd ground with Jones sponsorship

    Chad Dundas

    It will shock absolutely no one to learn that Jon Jones is the future. Readers who have encountered even a smattering of MMA-related news during the last couple of years understand this to be true. Unless you've made it a point not to know it, you...

  15. Are lofty expectations unfair to Gustafsson?

    Chad Dundas

    At this point, it's all upside for Alexander Gustafsson. Sorry, my apologies for using one of mainstream sport's more insipid buzzwords here, but there really is no other way to describe the talented 25-year-old Swede. A few days out from his figh...

  16. Silva returns to drug weary MMA scene

    Chad Dundas

    As he prepares to take on Alexander Gustafsson on Saturday at the UFC's first-ever show in Sweden, Thiago Silva finds himself at an interesting time to return from a drug suspension. Or -- in the interest of accuracy, I guess -- a drug-related sus...
