  2. UFC 159: Twist of fate in Jersey

    Chuck Mindenhall

    All the UFC 159 promos can't do away with the most basic question: How did we get here? The first time Chael Sonnen fought Anderson Silva, the original novelty was his utter disregard for Silva's legacy. To that point people had only been reverent...

  3. UFC 156 featured plenty sleight of hand

    Chuck Mindenhall

  4. Solutions for the 'muddleweight' division

    Chuck Mindenhall

    Anderson Silva has surveyed two potential foes up close, only to have things go haywire. First he traveled to Montreal for UFC 154 as a prelude to a "superfight" against Georges St-Pierre. Then, two months later, he hit Sao Paulo, Brazil, to chec...

  5. Jones-Sonnen pairing is a shticky situation

    Chuck Mindenhall

    Audacity pays in the UFC. Chael Sonnen is nothing if not audacious. Chael Sonnen is "The Man." He is the first No. 1 contender to never appear on your 205-pound rankings. He's looking right past the "Forrest" through the trees. What does he see? J...

  6. 'Boom' costar Jason Miller seems unhinged

    Chuck Mindenhall

    If you go in for "excruciating," then you are a ripe candidate for Jason Miller's fan club. Not talking about the Jason Miller who played Father Karras in 1973 film "The Exorcist," though at this point there would appear to be parallels in areas deal...

  8. Bisping/Boetsch to Calgary is the right play

    Chuck Mindenhall

    With Chael Sonnen's rematch against Anderson Silva now migrating from Brazil to Las Vegas, UFC 148 becomes the Miami Heat of fight cards. It is stacked, stuffed, loaded and insane. And let's face it, this annually huge Vegas card had a pot of gold...

    Chuck Mindenhall

    Dana White made a few things clear during Thursday's news conference in Chicago -- or, at least clearer -- about what's at stake on Saturday. The rest will have to be inferred. The most up-to-date picture looks like this: The winner of Chael Sonne...

  12. Bisping in unusual terrain as underdog

    Chuck Mindenhall

    It's been a long while since Michael Bisping was an underdog heading into a fight. In fact, the last time was back in 2009 when he fought Dan Henderson at UFC 100. On that occasion, with all the tensions of the "Ultimate Fighter 9" still playing in t...

  14. Jones/Silva bout would need stars to align

    Chuck Mindenhall

    Jon Jones likes Anderson Silva, and Silva likes Jones -- and they've not kept it a secret. They've been admiring friends who'd just assume never have to see each other in the cage. Each has his own territory, and neither is enthusiastic to trespass. ...

    Chuck Mindenhall

    LAS VEGAS -- People knew things before we did -- that's what we suspect we know now. That's why the fight week buildup to Michael Bisping and Jason Miller -- a fight with vague insinuations toward a high contender spot -- is unique. Unique in a short...

  16. This time around, it's a grown-up Mayhem

    Chuck Mindenhall

    LAS VEGAS -- Things are going to look and feel a lot different for Jason Miller on Saturday night. In a small theater like the Pearl at the Palms, Miller will have about 14 feet of serviceable space to attempt one of his famous walkouts in his ret...
