Josh Samman Passes Away After Slipping Into Coma

It’s a said day as The Ultimate Fighter season 17 veteran Josh Samman has passed away after slipping into a coma. It certainly a shocking and startling end to a life filled with tremendous ups and catastrophic downs.


Julian Wallace, Charged With Domestic Violence, Gets KO’d By Team Alpha Male Fighter

The title pretty much says it all. Julian Wallace has been accused of hitting his ex-girlfriend and just recently plead guilty to the charges. While we may not know the entirety of the situation, the fact that Wallace has done a number of questionable things in his past takes the sympathy card off of the table. No man should put his hands on a woman and Julian Wallace found out the hard way how being a complete douche nozzle can be when he decided to train with a room full of killers. Take a look at the video after the jump.


Charles “Krazy Horse” Bennett and Wanderlei Silva Almost Come to Blows

Yeah, so remember that time that Charles “Krazy Horse” Bennett actually tried to wage a one man army on the famed Chute Boxe team back in the days of Pride? Well, it seems like Wanderlei Silva hasn’t forgotten. Not. One. Bit. Check out the video after the jump of Wanderlei Silva and Krazy Horse nearly coming to blows at the Rizin Hotel.


Bad Stoppages, The Ruining Of Potential Classics, And The Thankless Job Of Refereeing

Yes the Uriah Hall and Derek Brunson bout took place a few days ago in Hidalgo, Texas. Yes it is Tuesday, so I’m aware of how much time had passed since then so I’m sure some of you will make it a point to let that fact be known. Nevertheless, there are still some talking points to discuss on the subject no matter how long ago the event took place. The subject that that must be discussed is the thankless job of refereeing.


New Trailer For The Hurt Business, A Documentary That Actually Looks Worth The Price Of Admission

So most of us have seen what MMA documentaries have to offer. A handful have been pretty good in the past, but the vast majority have been underwhelming. But there’s just something about this Hurt Business doc that has us thinking we’re going to get a movie actually worth our time. Ever since the first trailer dropped interest has been building on this thing. Now the second trailer for The Hurt Business has just been released and is being featured everywhere including premiering on USA Today. So we’re not missing out the gravy train either. Check it out for yourself after the jump and give us your thoughts.

WSOF 17: “Shields vs. Foster” took place last night from Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino in Las Vegas, NV., featuring former Strikeforce champion and UFC alumni Jake Shields against another fellow UFC veteran Brian Foster.

The winner of their contest would go on to challenge Rousimar Palhares for the welterweight title at a later date, and despite the slow start, Shields scored his second consecutive submission win. He’s now 2-0 since being fired from the UFC:


Watch Miguel Torres’ Knee Implode from a Brutal Oblique Kick

Every fighter goes through a period of decline as they age, but few fighters have had a fall as sharp and devastating as Miguel Torres.

Torres was once a 37-1 WEC bantamweight champion and one of the best pound-for-pound fighters ever (back when that distinction was less of a dubious marketing ploy). Then he hit a huge skid and wound up losing to a Wiki-less Pablo Alfonso in World Series of Fighting via submission in just the first round. The shame of this loss sent him to garbage regional shows with names straight out of EA Sports MMA — “Rebel FC” and “United Combat League.” Torres went 3-0 during this time over tomato cans.

His recent return to the “big time” was a fight against Desmond Green at Titan FC 31 in late 2014. Torres lost in under a minute. After this, Torres decided to try his hand at kickboxing. Last night, he had his pro kickboxing debut against Angel Huerta at Legacy Kickboxing 1 in Houston. The fight, like the last few rotations of the earth around the sun, held nothing but disaster for Torres. Check out the finish after the jump…


UFC Booking Alert: Rory MacDonald vs. Hector Lombard at UFC 186

Rory MacDonald‘s next fight will be against the resurgent Cuban judoka and former Bellator middleweight champ, Hector Lombard at UFC 186 in Montreal this April. The initial report came from Vendetta Fighter, but was later confirmed by MMA Fighting.

Late last year, Fans and pundits alike thought MacDonald would face the winner of Robbie Lawler vs. Johny Hendricks II. A controversial decision in Lawler’s favor put the brakes on that since it forced the UFC to book a trilogy between the two welterweights.

MacDonald, left without a dancing partner, will face off with one of the top welterweights in the division in Lombard. We like to think UFC matchmaker Joe Silva booked this fight based on both fighters’ terrible nicknames. We’ve got Rory “The Waterboy” “Ares” “The Red King” vs. Hector “Lightning” “Showweather” Lombard. Ugh. How about the loser AND winner take their nicknames out back and shoot them?


UFC 182 Results: Watch Jon Jones Taunt Daniel Cormier After Thrashing Him for Five Rounds

Jon Jones harnessed his inner professional wrestler after defeating Daniel Cormier at UFC 182 — though “defeating” is wording it a bit lightly. Jon Jones outclassed Cormier throughout most of the fight. He even managed to trump the Olympic wrestler in the takedown and clinch-work department throughout the 25-minute ordeal.

But the coup de grace wasn’t any martial arts technique, it was a classic homage to professional wrestling that came after the bell:

Brock Lesnar Is Probably Coming Back to the UFC (But It Doesn’t Matter. Here’s Why)

By Matt Saccaro

Brock Lesnar will likely return to the UFC in 2015, but it won’t usher in a new golden age for MMA.

The news of Lesnar’s UFC return came recently. Dave Meltzer’s Wrestling Observer Newsletter reported that “within the [WWE], the belief is that he’s going back to the UFC, and his showing up lighter to TV last week confirmed that to people who thought it.”

Earlier this year, UFC President Dana White expressed openness to a Lesnar return, and even claimed Lesnar was willing to return. “We have a great relationship with him,” said White. “We’ll see what happens.”

Furthermore, Lesnar’s longtime friend Paul Heyman noted this summer that Lesnar still has an intense drive to compete in the Octagon.

Unlike every other time Brock Lesnar’s name has been in the headlines over the last few years, this round of “Is Lesnar coming back” speculation isn’t a gimmick to drive up pageviews during a slow news week. This appears to be the real deal. Lesnar is coming back. However, unlike conventional wisdom would have you believe, it won’t do a damn thing to turn the UFC’s fortunes around.
