  1. Time to say goodbye to the bad guy?

    Chad Dundas

    Assuming the story is true, the most heinous villain in MMA history may have been born via innocuous text message during the summer of 2009. That's when a previously unremarkable middleweight named Chael Sonnen contacted Joe Silva, offering to mov...

  2. UFC 151 cancellation still haunts 205

    Chad Dundas

    It has been a bit more than eight months since the cancellation of UFC 151, which at the breakneck pace of the MMA news cycle makes it feel as though it happened sometime during the Bronze Age. Heads have cooled considerably since that bizarre and...

  3. 'Year of superfight' could be a mixed bag

    Chad Dundas

    Fight fans had cause for serious eye-rolling back in January, when UFC play-by-play man Mike Goldberg kicked off the organization's first pay-per-view of 2013 by proclaiming this would be the "year of the superfight" inside the Octagon. Guys in G...

  4. 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...

  5. 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...

  6. 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...

  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. 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 ...

  11. 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...

  12. 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...

  13. 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...

  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. Will coaching give Jones edge at UFC 145?

    Chad Dundas

    For Greg Jackson, the decision to corner prized pupil Jon Jones in his light heavyweight title fight against Rashad Evans at UFC 145 has everything to do with tense. As in, the difference between "present" and "past." Jackson has long been big ...

  16. Can Evans-Davis steal the spotlight back?

    Chad Dundas

    It's not like Rashad Evans and Phil Davis haven't done their due diligence leading up to UFC on Fox 2. On the contrary, Evans and Davis have both been doing their level best to sell their possible light heavyweight title eliminator at the fight co...
