    March 13, 2014
    Johny Hendricks must feel like the most popular fighter in the UFC — or at least among the most supported. An abnormal amount of fans picked Hendricks going into his welterweight championship bout against Georges St. Pierre, who hadn’t lost in six years and 11 fights, last November. Even after the judges rendered a split-decision verdict in favor of St. Pierre, almost everyone argued Hendricks deserved the victory.

    Gustafsson has something to prove, is facing a worthy opponent at UFC London
    March 6, 2014
    Alexander Gustafsson doesn’t sound like a fighter who believes he has a lot to prove in his bout Saturday against Jimi Manuwa in London at UFC Fight Night 38. The response to the brutish Swede during the past six months since he pushed light heavyweight champion Jon Jones to the limit at UFC 165 makes it unrealistic to expect him to feel that way. Fans have treated Gustafsson like an uncrowned champion, or at the least an uncontested top contender, since he dropped the unanimous decision but sent the world’s best fighter to the hospital and a prolonged recovery in ...

    Feb. 16, 2014
    Sportsmanship is commendable, a virtue worth teaching. But it shouldn’t get in the way of sincerity, a trait as important to Ronda Rousey as the arm bar she has used to defeat all eight of her opponents.
