It has felt like forever since the greatest fighter in the world has headlined a card. Anderson Silva last fought in October of 2012 when he completely demolished Stephan Bonnar in the first round. His opponent, Chris Weidman, has not fought since July of 2012, but regardless of the yearlong layoff, this bout could easily […]

It has been a tough road for Canadian Featherweights.  For the first time in a while, this 145 lb list contains no UFC fighter as Antonio Carvalho was a surprise cut by Joe Silva and Mark Hominick has retired. All is not bleak, however, as new blood has infused the Top 10 thanks to great […]

Western Canada has been fairly unlucky when it comes to the UFC. After two arguably weak cards put together by the organization in Vancouver, they tried to salvage their reputation out West by making a spectacular card in Calgary.

Finally, three months after the final Strikeforce card, the UFC has put together a card where we will get to witness four UFC veterans against four Strikeforce veterans. This is arguably the most well balanced free […]

As Yogi Berra said, ‘It ain’t over till it’s over.’  While Bill S-209 is expected to pass into law giving professional MMA a legal framework in Canada, the Canadian Medical Association is doing what it can to derail this result.
