Joe Rogan announced today that he has re-signed with the UFC for an additional year. He made the announcement on his podcast, the Joe Rogan Experience, after his guest, UFC Featherweight Jeremy Stephens, questioned him on his standing with the UFC.
According to Joe Rogan, Nick Diaz turned down a rematch with Robbie Lawler.
UFC 209 happens this March. With the pay-per-view number coinciding with the area code for Stockton, California, fans have been clamoring for one, or both Diaz brothers to be on the card.
UFC commentator Joe Rogan would love to see McGregor take on Nick Diaz.
The Conor McGregor-Nate Diaz rivalry turned out to be one of the biggest talking points of 2016.
Diaz submitted ‘The Notorious’ at UFC 196 but McGregor walked away with a majority decision in the rematch at UFC 202, and both bouts generated some of the highest pay-per-view numbers in the promotion’s history.
UFC Fight Night 96 has its main event with the announcement that John Dodson will meet John Lineker in a fight with significant implications in the bantamweight division.
Conor McGregor’s coach John Kavanagh has a date in mind for the third Nate Diaz fight.
Since the Floyd Mayweather Jr. fight on August 26th, Conor McGregor’s camp has been eyeing on one fighter for their next fight: Nate Diaz. It is a name that SBG Dublin head coach John Kavanagh had in mind all along, but he does not foresee this third fight happening in 2017.
Heading into his rematch with Nate Diaz at UFC 202 on Saturday night, Conor McGregor made some wholesale changes in his training regimen. Namely, he and his Straight Blast Gym coach John Kavanagh have added structure to his Dublin-based training camp. They have structured the workouts to help maximize his endurance come fight night on Aug. 20 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

The former UFC welterweight champion missed weight Saturday morning for his UFC Fight Night 112 middleweight bout with Tim Boetsch. Hendricks came in at 188 pounds, making this the third time he has missed weight in his UFC career. The 33-year-old fighter, who made most of his career at 170 pounds, moved to up the 185-pound division earlier this year in hopes of leaving weight-cutting issues behind him.

Jomary “The Zamboanginian Fighter” Torres shocked the world this past August when the little-known atomweight from the Philippines made her promotional debut against rising Thai martial arts superstar Rika “Tinydoll” Ishige at ONE: KINGS & CONQUERORS in Macao, China.

Filipina fighter Jomary Torres sees it as a privilege to be fighting side-by-side with fellow homegrown martial artists on the undercard of ONE: KINGS & CONQUERORS in Macao. China on Saturday, August 5.
Conor McGregor is already the highest paid fighter in the UFC but his worth might multiply exponentially with a win at UFC 205 on Saturday night.
UFC play-by-play announcer Jon Anik believes that McGregor's value to the UFC is already extremely high, but if he takes home a second world title by defeating Eddie Alvarez, he could soon command an astronomical number for his fights.
In the aftermath of the Floyd Mayweather Jr. vs. Conor McGregor hoopla, it can be easy to forget that the UFC has had a bad run of luck over the last couple of weeks. Junior dos Santos was flagged by USADA. Brian Stann left the company. And of course, their homegrown star lost in a high-profile boxing match last night. But the biggest non-Conor story was definitely the continuing saga of Jon Jones, who failed an in-competition UFC 214 test for the anabolic steroid turinabol.
Jon Jones says a bout against Stipe Miocic would not be a “real super fight.” I disagree.
After winning back his light heavyweight title, Jon Jones immediately called out Brock Lesnar. The fight would surely do big numbers, but it’s not the most realistic of options, as there’s a lot of hurdles to overcome concerning Lesnar’s suspension or even his real motives for publicly “accepting” the fight.
Jones’ B sample returned with the same result, flagging the steroid Turinabol in Jones’ test.
Jon Jones has failed his B sample drug test with another positive test for Turinabol. The failure stemmed from a sample taken surrounding his UFC 214 bout against Daniel Cormier, for the promotion’s light heavyweight title. Jones won the bout by KO in the third round. ESPN first reported the news of the secondary sample coming back positive. USADA has since confirmed that Jones’ B sample did not differentiate from his A sample.
Things continue to heat up on social media between Jon Jones and Daniel Cormier.
Jon Jones has been tag-teamed by Daniel Cormier and Alexander Gustafsson this week, regarding his failed USADA drug test at UFC 200.
Gustafsson, who lost to Jones via decision in a championship epic at UFC 172, claimed in a recent interview with Ariel Helwani that 'Bones' has probably been using performance-enhancing drugs for a 'long time' and believes he was using illegal substances in their five-round classic in 2013.
Jon Jones has tested positive for steroids in his UFC 214 victory over Daniel Cormier . Jones tested positive for Turinabol -- an anabolic steroid. Last 2016 tested positive for banned substances before UFC 200 and was pulled from the main event. Jones got socked with a 1 year ban.
The UFC rankings have taken a major hit. Over the weekend, the promotion removed three of their stars from the rankings due to those fighters being flagged by USADA for failed tests. One of them was Jon Jones, the UFC interim light heavyweight champion.
Jon Jones seems confident that he won't be sitting on the sidelines much longer.
The interim light-heavyweight champion is currently on a temporary suspension after testing positive for a pair of anti-estrogen drugs in the lead up to his last scheduled fight against Daniel Cormier at UFC 200.
Jon Jones says he is now learning to embrace his antagonist image.
In preparation for the grudge rematch between Daniel Cormier and Jon Jones at UFC 214, the UFC put out a promotional video entitled “Tame Your Demons”. It basically highlighted the respective titles runs of both men, and it obviously included Jones’ run-ins with the law that led to the stripping of his title, as well his drug test mishaps.
