  1. UFC 115 postmortem: Liddell's finale, Cro Cop comes back, more

    Jake Rossen/Sherdog.com

    If you ever needed any proof that a fight isn't over until it's over -- and in Paul Daley's case, not even then -- UFC 115 should be plenty proof enough. Rory MacDonald was controlling Carlos Condit on the ground, looking every bit the prospect he ...

  2. ESPN Primer: UFC 115

    Jake Rossen/Sherdog.com

    When you're a fighter who has gone 1-4 since a second win over Tito Ortiz in 2006, a natural course of action might be to fight Ortiz for a third time, just to get your bearings back. That's what the UFC had planned for Chuck Liddell on Saturday. O...

    Jake Rossen/Sherdog.com

    You saw it coming: After coming up short against Mike Thomas Brown (twice) and Jose Aldo, Urijah Faber is knocking 10 pounds off his frame to head to the 135-pound division. According to MMAWeekly, the WEC's biggest attraction will fight Takeya Mizug...

  4. Rampage Jackson is not an MMA fan

    Jake Rossen/Sherdog.com

    Quinton Jackson, star of "The A-Team," which premieres Friday, told Extra that he's not such a big fan of sports, his own included. "I was always a big fan of the 'A-Team,' and I was never a big fan of the sport I fight," he said. "I'm not a sports ...

  5. Josh Koscheck tests Georges St. Pierre's patience

    Jake Rossen/Sherdog.com

    There is an unfortunate side effect of success: It is the very human tendency to want to destroy what others have created. For high-profile athletes or actors, that can mean scandals about drugs, affairs, cheating, tantrums or boorishness. (There's a...

  6. Fighters versus media

    Jake Rossen/Sherdog.com

    There is a particular kind of derisive, condescending attitude that develops when a person has no investment in engaging another in conversation. You can observe this at the retail level, where consumers keep their distance from salesmen for reasons ...

  7. The new old Mirko Filipovic

    Jake Rossen/Sherdog.com

    "Thank God finally I have recovered completely. I had a very bad injury two years ago. My leg was broken. The knee was completely broken. I had three surgeries for the knee, and of course it reflected in my kicking. ... I decided to take another f...

  8. Ken Shamrock resurfaces

    Jake Rossen/Sherdog.com

    There is a part of me that respects the novelty of UFC 1 semifinalist Ken Shamrock remaining a fixture in the sport. The remainder believes that as far as his health is concerned, it's a very bad idea. New Coke bad. Shamrock was at the UFC's Expo l...

  9. Gimmicked

    Jake Rossen/Sherdog.com

    There is no emulating the success of the UFC. The 17-year-old brand is insurmountable, and no financier has the patience or capital to develop a roster of 200-plus fighters or pay headliners double the seven-figure paydays they're already getting. Th...

  10. GLAAD unhappy with 'Rampage'

    Jake Rossen/Sherdog.com

    In a blog post appearing on the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation's (GLAAD) web site, director of entertainment media Taj Paxton takes Quinton Jackson to task for comments Jackson made to The Los Angeles Times about acting "being kind of ga...

  11. Ric Flair comments on MMA

    Jake Rossen/Sherdog.com

    I have an odd preoccupation with people in the professional wrestling industry who comment on MMA. Probably because I don't get pro wrestling on any level other than the human drama that plays out behind the scenes, and probably in part because I res...

  12. WEC cans Jens Pulver

    Jake Rossen/Sherdog.com

    Jens Pulver, 0-5 in recent outings, is a 36-year-old featherweight, which is as unforgiving a situation as you'll find in combat sports. Speed is the price of admission at that size, and Pulver no longer has it. He may or may not put together wins ag...

  13. Josh Koscheck vs. Dana White

    Jake Rossen/Sherdog.com

    For reasons that often elude me, Josh Koscheck is not a terribly likable figure. He isn't especially disrespectful to opponents, he always shows up well-trained and prepared, and he has discarded a blanketing wrestling game in favor of very credible ...

  14. Quinton Jackson acts out in Hollywood

    Jake Rossen/Sherdog.com

    The Los Angeles Times ran a feature profile of Quinton Jackson over the weekend. It was not flattering. Jackson was captured spouting homophobic rhetoric, threatening a crew member on the set of "The A-Team" and generally being dismissive of his n...

  15. Chael Sonnen's head games

    Jake Rossen/Sherdog.com

    "Guy talk, blah, blah, blah." This was Anderson Silva's assessment of Chael Sonnen while speaking with Ariel Helwani, and though it's not all that illuminating, it does a decent job of summarizing Sonnen's current M.O.: act obnoxious, be loud and ge...

  16. Vitor Belfort's bad timing may cost him title shot

    Jake Rossen/Sherdog.com

    Finally ready to return after an injury kept him from making an April fight against Anderson Silva, Vitor Belfort seems to expect that a title shot will still be on the table when he returns in October. Unfortunately, unless the UFC wants to shelve h...
