Earlier this month a video went viral of aspiring rapper Kasper Knight shooting himself in the mouth in order to get publicity.
UFC Fight Night 93 went down last night (Sat., Sept. 3, 2016) inside the Barclaycard Arena in Hamburg, Germany, and now it's time to see who went home with the largest slice of the Reebok sponsorship pie.
CM Punk’s MMA debut happens in less than a week, at UFC 203. The former WWE superstar is considered a heavy underdog by most pundits, but a certain MMA legend is picking him to defeat the younger and more experienced fighter in Mickey Gall.
After winning his title from Jose Aldo, UFC featherweight Conor McGregor already had a shot at making MMA history when he was slated to fight then-lightweight champion Rafael dos Anjos at UFC 196. As we all remember, that was not to be after dos Anjos had to pull out of the fight due to a foot injury. All of this led to Nate Diaz becoming the late replacement and the birth of a rivalry nobody saw coming.
While canceling an entire event is never an easy decision to make, Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) felt it was the best thing to do after the mixed martial arts (MMA) promotion pulled the plug on UFC Fight Night 97 -- which was set to go down on Saturday (Oct. 15, 2016) in Manila, Philippines -- in the wake of B.J. Penn's injury.
It didn’t take Derek Brunson long to receive his next opponent.

UFC superstar Ronda Rousey has just been announced as a team captain for ABC’s reboot of Battle of the Network Stars.
We might not be treated to a return to Octagon action from WMMA superstar Ronda Rousey, but that doesn’t mean she’s disappeared from the public eye altogether. MMA Fighting reports that just weeks after her guest TV spot on NBC’s Blindspot, Rousey has been announced as a team captain on ABC’s revival of Battle of the Network Stars. Rousey’s opposing team will be captained by the recently retired Denver Bronco, DeMarcus Ware.
THE long wait for Ronda Rousey to return to the UFC may soon be over.
The former women’s bantamweight champion is currently in negotiations for her next fight in the Octagon with a potential matchup against Amanda Nunes as the likely opposition.
According to sources speaking to FOX Sports, Rousey has been offered a bout with Nunes as part of the UFC 207 card in Las Vegas on December 30 (December 31 AEST) but the fight is not set in stone yet.
Former UFC women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey will return to TV in May with a guest role on an NBC show.
While Ronda Rousey’s fighting career is still very much up in the air, one of her other pursuits looks to be picking up again. Rousey made a name for herself in the acting world during her resounding success in the UFC, and she will continue on in that area with a guest starring role in NBC’s “Blindspot” in May.
Earlier this year, New York lifted a nineteen-year long ban on mixed martial arts in the state, which paved the way for Dana White to host UFC 205 at Madison Square Garden in November.
Former UFC women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey released a statement to ESPN following another devastating knockout loss, this time to Amanda Nunes.
The main event of UFC 207 was about as lopsided as humanly possible, as Amanda Nunes successfully defended her UFC women’s bantamweight title by knocking out Ronda Rousey in just 48 seconds. It marked the 2nd KO loss in as many fights for Rousey, who had dominated the division for years, dating back to her days in Strikeforce. That all came to an end when Holly Holm finished her at UFC 193.
Ronda Rousey delivers a short message leading up to her upcoming fight at UFC 207 against Amanda Nunes.
Since her return fight against Amanda Nunes was made official in October, Ronda Rousey has purposely kept herself away from the MMA media. This included the mandated press obligations that are usually done during fight week.
Rousey says Amanda Nunes is forced to predict an early knockout because of her tendency to gas out in the second round.
Last month during UFC 205 fight week, women’s bantamweight champion Amanda Nunes boldly predicted a first-round knockout against the returning Ronda Rousey at UFC 207.
Nunes, who was crowned the new 135 lbs champ after submitting Miesha Tate in July, has finished ten of her thirteen wins in the first round, but three of her four losses came in the later rounds.
Anyone holding out hopes that Ronda Rousey might be building up for a return to the Octagon in the near future, may want to pump the brakes. Judo coach Justin Flores doesn’t see it happening.
Rory MacDonald sends a chilling message to Douglas Lima and the rest of the Bellator welterweight contenders.
He might be called 'The Red King', but Rory MacDonald is building a reputation as 'The Canadian Psycho'.
MacDonald, who made his Bellator debut earlier this year with a second round submission over the heavy hitting Paul Daley, joined the broadcast team for last night's Bellator 180 pay-per-view at Madison Square Garden in New York.
Rory MacDonald threw a bucket of cold water on Bellator’s welterweight title fight Saturday night, just seconds after it happened.
The top 170-pound fighter, who should be in line for a title fight next, slammed the performances of Douglas Lima and Lorenz Larkin at Bellator NYC at Madison Square Garden. Lima ended up winning a unanimous decision against the very tough UFC veteran. But MacDonald wanted to see more.
Four-division boxing champ Roy Jones Jr. thinks a fight with Anderson Silva would be the perfect co-headliner for a Conor McGregor vs. Floyd Mayweather card.
Jones (65-9, 47 KO) is still active, and actually won the vacant WBF cruiserweight title last weekend with an 8th-round TKO stoppage of journeyman Bobby Gunn. Gunn hadn’t fought in over three years before getting the call to fight RJJ though, so it’s not like Jones is still out there taking out top-level guys.
It doesn't look like Roy Nelson will be punished for his actions against referee John McCarthy last night in Brasilia. The heavyweight picked up a win over Antonio Silva on the main card of UFC Fight Night 95, but was upset about how the stoppage went down.
Royce Gracie dominated the early days of the UFC with his jiu-jitsu, scoring 10 submission victories in 13 months between UFC 1 and UFC 4, and fellow Brazilian jiu-jitsu expert Demian Maia is getting close to his record.
There’s a split in opinion among fellow fighters regarding the way Conor McGregor decided to fight against Nate Diaz at UFC 202 earlier this month.
