  1. Time to say goodbye to the bad guy?

    Chad Dundas

    Assuming the story is true, the most heinous villain in MMA history may have been born via innocuous text message during the summer of 2009. That's when a previously unremarkable middleweight named Chael Sonnen contacted Joe Silva, offering to mov...

  2. UFC 151 cancellation still haunts 205

    Chad Dundas

    It has been a bit more than eight months since the cancellation of UFC 151, which at the breakneck pace of the MMA news cycle makes it feel as though it happened sometime during the Bronze Age. Heads have cooled considerably since that bizarre and...

  3. Top fighter at 155 still too close to call

    Chad Dundas

    For what it's worth, my personal scorecard now has Benson Henderson 1-3 in UFC title fights. And what it's worth, of course, is a hill of beans. In the real world, Henderson on Saturday moved to 4-0 in UFC championship bouts, tying BJ Penn's reco...

  4. Learn to love St-Pierre, takedowns and all

    Chad Dundas

    Georges St-Pierre beat Nick Diaz just about every way the rules of mixed martial arts would allow at UFC 158. En route to arguably the most complete performance of his career, St-Pierre stalled Diaz's vaunted boxing with sharp counters and slick ...

  5. Diaz's retirement always subject to change

    Chad Dundas

    If we learned anything about Nick Diaz from the epic oratory performance he put on at UFC 158, it's that he's not going to lie to us. Diaz can be called a lot of things, but "liar" certainly isn't one of them. If anything, the American ambassador...

  6. UFC 158 rife with welterweight intrigue

    Chad Dundas

    In Georges St-Pierre and Nick Diaz, the welterweight division has found its odd couple. They despise each other, and we love it. Headed into their clash for St-Pierre's 170-pound title at UFC 158, we quite simply can't get enough of it, thrilli...

  7. Hunt booking not quite business as usual

    Chad Dundas

    Times like this, we're reminded of words from the great philosopher Ferris Bueller, who warned us in his landmark 1986 work that, "Life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it." Mixed martial arts fa...

  8. 'Year of superfight' could be a mixed bag

    Chad Dundas

    Fight fans had cause for serious eye-rolling back in January, when UFC play-by-play man Mike Goldberg kicked off the organization's first pay-per-view of 2013 by proclaiming this would be the "year of the superfight" inside the Octagon. Guys in G...

  9. 'Bigfoot' proves to be unwilling fall guy

    Chad Dundas

    Antonio "Bigfoot" Silva seemed to take particular joy in knocking out Alistair Overeem on Saturday at UFC 156. Even though the official stoppage came less than 30 seconds into the third round, it somehow looked like Silva took his sweet time once ...

  10. Is Silva versus GSP still such a super idea?

    Chad Dundas

    I was once a big proponent of a superfight between Anderson Silva and Georges St-Pierre. Now, after waiting 11 months for St-Pierre to return from a torn ACL and watching him vanquish a game Carlos Condit on Saturday at UFC 154 to finally take th...

  11. Even with Jones-Sonnen, TUF needs reboot

    Chad Dundas

  12. UFC handles crises by its own book

    Chad Dundas

    Even during a year where injury and adversity have been the norm in mixed martial arts, this past weekend felt like an especially hectic one for the UFC. If the August cancelation of UFC 151 represented rock bottom for the organization's ongoing s...

    Chad Dundas

    MINNEAPOLIS -- Not so fast, UFC heavyweights. Antonio Silva proved he won't go quietly into the night on Friday, as he corralled a limping Travis Browne and slugged his way to a first round TKO victory in the main event of UFC on FX 5. It was ...

    Chad Dundas

    MINNEAPOLIS -- A person can extrapolate a lot from a weigh-in, almost all of it pure guesswork. However, one thing is certain of Travis Browne leading up to his heavyweight main event fight against Antonio "Bigfoot" Silva this weekend at UFC on FX 5....

  16. Stefan Struve: A monster in the making?

    Chad Dundas

    A funny thing happened to Stefan Struve on Saturday en route to his second-round TKO victory over Stipe Miocic at UFC on Fuel TV. After an uneasy first round where Struve ate a succession of overhand rights and hard body shots while looking poised...
