  1. 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...

  2. 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...

  3. 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...

    Jake Rossen/Sherdog.com

    Pick any piece of media leading up to Saturday's UFC 114, and you'll find Quinton Jackson swearing up and down that he was prepared for Rashad Evans. "Best shape of my life," he told training partners (and, conveniently, television cameras). The mov...

  5. ESPN Primer: UFC 114

    Jake Rossen/Sherdog.com

    Nothing kills careers faster than disinterest, and Quinton Jackson has put out several notices that his attention may be elsewhere. The onetime light heavyweight champion took a major film role in "The A-Team," announced his retirement, retracted i...

  6. The UFC's north face

    Jake Rossen/Sherdog.com

    Despite being such a money market for the UFC -- installment No. 97 drew a record 21,451 fans to Montreal's Bell Centre -- Canada has not been a friendly neighbor. Shows have been bogged down in bureaucratic red tape; a high-profile show in Ontario's...

  7. Kimbo Slice sells, like it or not

    Jake Rossen/Sherdog.com

    As of Saturday, Kimbo Slice, the world's first -- and hopefully only -- YouTube-groomed fighter, made his final exit from the Octagon gates of the UFC. He looked mediocre in three fights, outpointing only Houston Alexander in a bout that didn't inspi...

  8. Ricco Rodriguez considers 205

    Jake Rossen/Sherdog.com

    My interest in the career of Ricco Rodriguez waned right around the time he decided to subject himself to a stint on VH-1's "Celebrity Rehab," a ghoulish voyeur drama masquerading as an earnest therapy opportunity. (Dr. Drew Pinsky, so studious in hi...

  9. The UFC's official statement

    Jake Rossen/Sherdog.com

    With a self-professed desire to be one of the biggest sporting leagues in the world, the UFC is unique among that group in that it doesn't necessarily have to be bothered with regulatory protocol. The NBA, NFL, and MLB staff, train, pay and penalize ...

  10. The big deal about the WEC's small success

    Jake Rossen/Sherdog.com

    Whether or not we should consider the rumored 150,000 to 200,000 purchases for Saturday's Jose Aldo-Urijah Faber bantamweight fight on pay-per-view a success might depend on what those households thought they were buying. Stripped of all WEC identif...

  11. Notes on Sherdog's April rankings

    Jake Rossen/Sherdog.com

    Rankings always have been and always will be subjective. Different organizations have different rules, environments and standards, which makes any kind of uniform evaluation impossible. Even promotions within the same executive offices -- the UFC and...

  12. Mariusz Pudzianowski: The world's most optimistic man

    Jake Rossen/Sherdog.com

    If five-time World's Strongest Man contest winner Mariusz Pudzianowski had grown up on a wrestling mat, he might be on to something. Instead, the melon-biceped Pudzianowski is counting on some contrite striking and pickup grappling to become a conten...

  13. Dubai's intimacy problems

    Jake Rossen/Sherdog.com

    Fighters accustomed to the encouraged hedonism of Las Vegas might want to think twice before hosting United Arab Emirates groupies. According to the BBC, a British couple visiting Dubai this past November are now serving a month in jail for kissing i...

  14. Tim Sylvia goes for broke

    Jake Rossen/Sherdog.com

    At a point I can't even identify, Tim Sylvia became a punchline. This was not always the case. From the beginning, he was awkwardly built -- to the point where he was once popped for steroids just to streamline his frame -- but had earned the right t...

  15. Anderson Silva renews his heavyweight hopes

    Jake Rossen/Sherdog.com

    Anderson Silva's greatest opponent remains indifference: The longtime middleweight champion told assorted media this week that he plans to seek out challenges one or two divisions above his lanky 185-pound frame in the future. "Heavyweight is defi...

  16. Jon Fitch's self-defense

    Jake Rossen/Sherdog.com

    In a no-time-limit fight, Jon Fitch somehow would find a way to go to the judges. He hasn't finished a fight in nearly three years. But if you have a problem with that, then by god, he has a problem with you. "I view them as fair-weather fans," Fitc...
