After a changing of the guard in the UFC’s welterweight division, Tyron Woodley is the new 170-pound champion.
Invicta FC has upped the ante for its main event Friday night.
The promotion announced Thursday at weigh-ins that Barb Honchak has been stripped of the flyweight title and the interim tag is off the Invicta FC 19 headline bout. Jennifer Maia is the new undisputed champion and she'll defend that belt against Roxanne Modafferi. Both women made weight, making the fight official Thursday morning.
Not even one week after his first-round submission win over Tim Boetsch, at UFC 208, Ronaldo Souza is already planning the next step of his career. As the middleweight contender told Estadao, he would like to rematch Luke Rockhold in July, as Jacare believes he was robbed of his win back when they first fought in Strikeforce, in 2011.
Ronaldo ‘Jacare’ Souza knows it’s going to be a while before he gets a title shot, and he’s not going to wait around on the sidelines for it.
Unlike a lot of UFC fighters, Ronaldo Souza doesn’t want to rest on his laurels. The longtime middleweight contender has somehow not been granted a shot at the 185-pound UFC title yet, and even with his win over Tim Boetsch at UFC 208 last night, he knows it’s going to be a while until he gets one.
A rematch of one of the best fights of 2012 will go down in Vancouver on August 27th.
The UFC has decided to book a bout between two men that are quite familiar with each other. In fact, they put on one of the best fights in the history of the promotion back in 2012. Joe Lauzon and Jim Miller will meet again, this time in Vancouver, on August 27th at UFC on Fox 21.

Joe Rogan announces his latest UFC deal on the Joe Rogan Experience.
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.
Joe Rogan, like most people, believes the UFC should have booked the Diaz brothers to fight at UFC 209 in Stockton.
Joe Rogan is among the many people who believe the UFC’s next pay-per-view event should feature Stockton’s finest mixed martial artists — and take place in Stockton.
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.
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.
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.
JON Jones has been temporarily suspended by the Nevada State Athletic Commission as a result of a positive drug test administered by USADA (United States Anti-Doping Agency) ahead of his previously scheduled bout at UFC 200.
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.
RIO DE JANEIRO – Jose Aldo’s vicious leg kicks have acquired a reputation of their own over the years. And, in case anyone missed them during his last performance, there was a logical – and potentially paranoia-inducing – explanation.
Jose Aldo wants to leave the UFC and the sport for good, and says that not even an offer to rematch Conor McGregor would change his mind.
Six months after losing his featherweight belt to "The Notorious" in December, Aldo got back inside the Octagon to rematch Frankie Edgar for the interim title at UFC 200. Almost three months have passed since his unanimous decision victory, and the Brazilian is now asking to be released from his contract.
UFC interim featherweight champion Jose Aldo might not be done with fighting after all.
Jose Aldo, retired fighter? Not so fast.
