Charles McCarthy only had three UFC fights, but over the course of that time, he submitted Gideon Ray, was a memorable member of the Ultimate Fighter season four cast, made David Loiseau’s highlight reel, and held his own in a trash talking battle with Michael Bisping before the two fought in 2008.
Donald Cerrone isn’t going anywhere – at least not any time soon.
With just one fight remaining on his deal following a second-round TKO of Rick Story at UFC 202 this past Saturday, Cerrone (31-7 MMA, 18-4 UFC) has opted not to fight out the final bout, then enter free agency. Instead, “Cowboy” has re-upped for eight more fights inside the octagon.
Cristiane Justino is once again beating the drum for the UFC to introduce a 145-pound women’s featherweight division.
Justino (16-1 MMA, 1-0 UFC), the current Invicta FC featherweight champ, made her official and long-awaited UFC debut at UFC 198 in May, when she stopped Leslie Smith by first-round TKO in a 140-pound catchweight fight.
One day after claiming a spy helped him craft the perfect strategy to beat Frankie Edgar at UFC 200, UFC interim featherweight champ Jose Aldo now insists that claim was simply a jab intended for Conor McGregor.
Now almost officially passed over for a title shot, Ronaldo Souza’s manager is fuming over the UFC’s decision to give Dan Henderson a rematch with champ Michael Bisping.
In a text message to MMAjunkie, Souza’s longtime rep, Gilberto Faria, said promoting Henderson as Bisping’s first title defense “makes no sense” because “out of the last nine fights, (Henderson) lost six.”
The UFC returns to Atlanta this week for UFC 201, and the promotion is rolling out the “Embedded” treatment for a preview of Saturday’s pay-per-view event from Philips Arena.
HIDALGO, Texas – For the first time, the UFC has touched down in the Rio Grande Valley in South Texas for UFC Fight Night 94, and once again, MMAjunkie is “On the Ground” in the latest new UFC market.
Nate Diaz isn't too optimistic about his chances in the Octagon, but that hasn't stopped the former title challenger from having massive success in the UFC.
The UFC will have its second foray into the Philippines on October 15, and the card headlined by B.J. Penn vs. Ricardo Lamas is shaping up. Two more bouts have been added making 11 bouts total that are official for the Manila event.
DUBLIN -- The hour was well after most sane folks had long since fallen asleep. But toward the end of the second round of the UFC 202 rematch between Conor McGregor and Nate Diaz, those gathered at The Living Room must have felt like they were having nightmares.
Boxer Adrien Broner suggested that he’d be interested in fighting Nate Diaz on the Conor McGregor vs. Floyd Mayweather undercard. Sort of.
If you follow boxing much, you’ll know that former four-division champion Adrien Broner is not a stranger to saying controversial things. The oft-maligned Broner (33-2, 1 NC, 24 KO) fights undefeated Mikey Garcia lightweight champ (36-0, 30 KO) at 140 pounds in July, but in a conversation with TMZ Sports, he said he’d like another fight right after that - on the undercard of the Floyd Mayweather vs. Conor McGregor megafight on August 26th
Mirsad Bektic will be able to open up the UFC 204 pay-per-view broadcast, after all. The highly touted featherweight prospect had lost two opponents on this October 8th card to injury, but UFC officials were able to book Russell Doane to fight Bektic just a few days out from fight night. MMAjunkie reported the news on Tuesday.

Mark Hunt is still winning at 43 years old. Now he wants payback against Alistair Overeem, a fighter he labels “a cheat.”
Mark Hunt might just be ageless.
When he exited the Octagon last night, Hunt walked away with a win at UFC Auckland, stopping the ascent of a potential title contender in Derrick Lewis. Not only did he win, but Hunt finished his opponent in a late round at the ripe age of 43.
Al Iaquinta’s return to the UFC has been accompanied by a return to open hostility with the promotion.
When Al Iaquinta effectively retired from the UFC back in September of 2016, the reasons seemed fairly obvious. He wasn’t happy. Negotiations for a new contract had turned sour and, for him, fighting was no longer worth the money. Despite being scheduled for a fight later that year (against Thaigo Alves at UFC 205), Iaquinta chose to hang up his gloves instead, and give real estate sales a try.
Jon Jones is adamant he did not take any type of steroids prior to UFC 200 after it was revealed he was flagged by United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) for Hydroxy-clomiphene, an anti-estrogenic agent, and Letrozole metabolite, an aromatase inhibitor.
With over 80 professional fights spread across mixed martial arts and kickboxing, Alistair Overeem knows combat sports better than almost anybody and he knows it can be an unforgiving and brutal endeavor the best athletes how have spent their lives preparing for battle.
Amanda Nunes doesn't really see Julianna Pena as a threat to her belt as she believes the TUF 18 champ doesn't know how to finish a fight.
On the same night Amanda Nunes brutally finished Miesha Tate to become the new UFC women’s bantamweight champion, Julianna Pena scored the biggest win of her career.
UFC women’s bantamweight champion Amanda Nunes is pleased with all the new divisions that have been added to the UFC.

In Nunes' eyes, it'll be either herself or strawweight champion, Joanna Jedrzejczyk.
