  1. UFC 155: Notes and Nuggets from Vegas

    Chuck Mindenhall

    LAS VEGAS -- There's a theory among heavyweights that Junior dos Santos is vulnerable on the ground. It's only a theory because nobody he faces is able to take the fight there. Dos Santos' ground game remains a mystery because he has proved himself t...

  2. Notes and nuggets for UFC 154

    Chuck Mindenhall

    MONTREAL -- The fight game is always two steps ahead of itself. So it's only natural that most of the people assembled in Montreal to see Georges St-Pierre defend his title against Carlos Condit are focusing on more distant possibilities. Like, will ...

  3. Notes and Nuggets: Denver edition

    Chuck Mindenhall

    DENVER -- There was an air of "next thing's first" at the UFC 150 news conference at the Fillmore Auditorium. Though Donald Cerrone will face his friend Melvin Guillard in the co-main event on Saturday night, Cerrone used the platform on several occa...

  4. Notes and Nuggets from New York City

    Chuck Mindenhall

    NEW YORK -- For as stacked as the UFC 146 card appears for Memorial Day weekend, it's really two title fights (Urijah Faber/Dominick Cruz and Chael Sonnen/Anderson Silva) and a pack of glitzy non-consequential match-ups (Cung Le/Rich Franklin and For...

  5. Notes and Nuggets: Bellator 63 edition

    Chuck Mindenhall

    UNCASVILLE, Conn. -- Through the first couple of weeks of Bellator's quarterfinal brackets we've witnessed some peculiar things. There was last week's rarely seen Von Flue choke, courtesy of lightweight Brent Weedman -- and that came on the same nigh...

  6. Notes and Nuggets from Columbus

    Chuck Mindenhall

    COLUMBUS -- Ronda Rousey has rapidly become the voice and weathervane of women's MMA. She's a mean judoka who has Olympic bronze on her resume. She's a pistol, she's a mystery, and she's headlining a fight card in which the direction of women's MMA i...

  7. Notes and Nuggets from Las Vegas

    Chuck Mindenhall

    LAS VEGAS -- We entered 2011 with the introductions of smaller weight classes to the UFC -- we go out with a freight collision between two of the more prominent heavyweights to ever have such different muscular strategies. Both Brock Lesnar and Alist...

  8. Notes and Nuggets from Toronto

    Chuck Mindenhall

    TORONTO -- On a fight card with so much philosophical curiosity, the headlining title bout between Jon Jones and Lyoto Machida is a perfect crescendo. In fact, the UFC 140 main event is being billed as "Art Comes Alive," a play off two distinct aesth...

  9. Notes and Nuggets on TUF 14 Finale

    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...

  10. Notes and nuggets: Rampage's chances, more

    Chuck Mindenhall

    DENVER -- If there's a little bit of truth in every joke, then Jon Jones' quip on "Jimmy Kimmel Live"! a few nights ago that his style versus Quinton Jackson's was sort of like "Spider-Man versus Frankenstein" isn't a joke. Everyone suspects there's ...

  11. Notes and nuggets from Cincinnati

    Chuck Mindenhall

    CINCINNATI -- It's the deepest card in Strikeforce's history, and yet it's one of the stranger atmospheres you'll find leading up to an event. For starters, the Nick Diaz/Carlos Condit/Georges St. Pierre drama is playing out at the same time, as is t...
