  1. UFC on Fox 8 primer: Frenetic flyweights

    Chuck Mindenhall

    On the one hand, another nationally televised flyweight title fight is just crazy enough to work at Saturday's UFC on Fox 8 card in Seattle. After all, if frenetic back-and-forth action is what we want in a main event, this is the formula -- even ...

  2. Diaz's dilemma, GSP's dominance, more

    Chuck Mindenhall

    By the time the smoke cleared, and Georges St-Pierre was eating pizza off the floor in celebration of his eighth title defense, Nick Diaz became MMA's equivalent of the "boy who cried wolf (tickets)." He told Joe Rogan after the fight that he was th...

  4. GSP's mindset, Ellenberger's chances, more

    Chuck Mindenhall

    What exactly is Georges St-Pierre's "dark place"? It has become a hashtag on Twitter for one thing -- an unlit place where St-Pierre himself never goes. Leading up to this weekend's fight with Nick Diaz at UFC 158 in Montreal, the UFC ran a slick pro...

  6. Area 151, where an entire card went missing

    Chuck Mindenhall

    UFC 151 will never happen. It disappeared from the UFC's timeline, much like the 13th floor in many elevators. How did we get here? It all happened in the fog of rumor, very fast and very stealthily. It began when the main event's challenger, D...

  7. Unlikely contenders emerging in the UFC

    Chuck Mindenhall

  8. UFC title album missing some pictures

    Chuck Mindenhall

    The UFC's flyweight division was exactly one fight old when things went haywire at the top. That's so 2012 in the UFC. When title belts are in play, all paths look more like construction zones with detours. This time, Ian McCall appeared as i...

  9. Hendo, White need to get on same page

    Chuck Mindenhall

  10. The Diaz case, and the doors that open

    Chuck Mindenhall

    It's been a whirlwind week in the UFC's alt-title scene -- and it begins and ends with Nick Diaz. For all his warts, Diaz had achieved a sort of cult status before his fight with Carlos Condit at UFC 143, and the terms of endearment were his alon...

  11. Diaz-Condit II could halt 170-pound division

    Chuck Mindenhall

    Well, that didn't take long. Moments after he beat Nick Diaz on the scorecards at UFC 143, Condit said he wanted to take some time to contemplate his next step. Would he take another fight before Georges St. Pierre returns and defend the interim ...

  12. Diaz done with fighting? Not bloody likely

    Chuck Mindenhall

    There were those who thought that Nick Diaz beat Carlos Condit at UFC 143, pointing to his constant pursuit as evidence. Diaz stalked, mocked and talked. He was "Stalkton." He was exactly who we thought he was. Problem was, Condit wasn't. Cond...

  13. Hendricks making his case for title shot

    Chuck Mindenhall

    Jon Fitch was forever the No. 2 welterweight in the field, even if he was treated like an incredibly successful banality the entire time. So what happens when Fitch, who never loses, gets knocked out by a guy with fresh marketability and a mean l...

  14. Whether Diaz or Condit, GSP a mean prize

    Chuck Mindenhall

    If you think that mankind isn't self-destructive, take a quick look at the UFC's welterweight division. There, you'll find lots of guys climbing all over each other for the chance to be jab-ridden, thrashed and left on the side of the road by Georges...
