  1. GSP-Diaz and the path of least resistance

    Chuck Mindenhall

    In a UFC on FOX prefight media scrum, Dana White confirmed what a lot of people were thinking: that Georges St-Pierre wants to fight Nick Diaz next. And, with St-Pierre having been such a good lad this holiday season, that's the new fight they're loo...

  2. Punishments start fitting the crimes in MMA

    Chuck Mindenhall

    Marijuana isn't a performance-enhancing drug, you say? Try running that nonsense by any guitarist in a jam band. All that noodling is backlit by something, brother. In MMA, though, marijuana doesn't enhance fight night performance. In fact, it pr...

  3. Hioki states his case for Aldo fight

    Chuck Mindenhall

    If he didn't raise any eyebrows in his Octagon debut against George Roop back at UFC 137, highly regarded featherweight Hatsu Hioki did so on his native soil against stalwart Bart Palaszewski at UFC 144. The reigning Shooto lightweight and Sengok...

  4. Is Edgar the greatest 155-er of all time?

    Chuck Mindenhall

    For the first time since he became the UFC's lightweight champion, Frankie Edgar is the betting favorite heading into a fight. From the Vegas perspective, the time of feel-good flukes is over -- this time, Edgar is getting love where he normally just...

  5. What happens when GSP goes to his dark place?

    Chuck Mindenhall

    Georges St. Pierre is actively rooting for Nick Diaz to win versus his erstwhile training partner Carlos Condit this weekend at UFC 143. Why? Because, when he returns from his knee injury, he wants to beat Diaz to a pulp himself and maybe teach h...

  6. From primetime to cut down in his prime

    Chuck Mindenhall

    At this point, Carlos Condit's opponents are like eye floaters -- he can't focus on them long enough to make out the shapes. This time, Condit had Josh Koscheck in his crosshairs for a forebodingly booked Super Bowl weekend. Before Koscheck became th...

  7. Why Diaz is being such an impossible Diaz

    Chuck Mindenhall

    Nick Diaz has never celebrated particularly well -- there's too much to brood over, even in times of perceivable triumph. Like the time he packed B.J. Penn up for an ambulance ride. That was a reluctant piece of business that he wanted nothing to ...

  8. Heavyweight contenders hard to come by

    Chuck Mindenhall

    Before Matt Mitrione fought Cheick Kongo, there were directional advisories. Mitrione said he was going to come forward and put Kongo on his heels, even though Kongo is traditionally the one doing the advancing. Kongo warned that he would not be made...

  9. Sticks and stones break bones, as does Cerrone

    Chuck Mindenhall

    Donald Cerrone knows what he's doing, and this is just one of those situations where a five-fight winning streak and this weekend's catapult bout to the lightweight title picture adds up to Nam Phan. It's almost a cliche at this point -- all roads le...

  10. Cro-Cop's unintentional potshot

    Chuck Mindenhall

    Mirko Filipovic could be fighting for the last time in the UFC on Saturday, which, realistically, is the case for most fighters. Same could be said of his opponent, Roy Nelson. Difference is, "Cro-Cop" is 37 years old and has looked his age in recent...

  11. UFC 137: A card gone mad

    Chuck Mindenhall

    UFC 137 already out-bizarres most cards that have stood before it. The main event features one original headliner -- but it was a massive detour to arrive at the same spot for Nick Diaz. To rehash the chain of events would be laborious, but in a n...

  12. 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...

  13. Where five-round main events get dicey

    Chuck Mindenhall

    In Houston a couple of weeks back, there were some people talking about collector's items, namely an original UFC 137 poster of Georges St. Pierre versus Nick Diaz. These people were Zuffa employees, so what they were really saying is that they h...

  14. Diaz a complicated fighter

    Chuck Mindenhall

    Whoever said that 80 percent of success is simply showing up was somewhere in the range of 100 percent right. If Nick Diaz shows up to the pre-UFC 137 press conferences, we're all pleasantly bemused that he puffed out his chest at Georges St. Pierre ...
