(Look, if the UFC isn’t promoting the main event, then we won’t either. / Photo via Getty)

UFC 178: Johnson vs. Cariaso is underway in Las Vegas, featuring an utterly stacked lineup of crowd-friendly fight-finishers (see esp.: Donald Cerrone vs. Eddie Alvarez), brilliant self-promoters (Conor McGregor!), eccentric Cuban wrestlers (Yoel Romero), and people who we just haven’t seen in a long time (Dominick Cruz, Cat Zingano). And oh yeah — a flyweight title fight. It should be a wild ride from top to bottom, and we’re psyched about it.

Our man Alex Giardini we’ll be giving you round-by-round results from the UFC 178 pay-per-view card after the jump starting at 10 p.m. ET / 7 p.m. PT. Refresh the page every few minutes for all the latest, and follow us on Twitter for bonus commentary. Thanks for being here.

Welcome to CagePotato’s liveblog of UFC Fight Night 50: Jacare vs. Mousasi — aka, the stunning conclusion of #FridayNightWars. Tonight on FOX Sports 1, Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza and Gegard Mousasi battle for the chance to get “pretty damn close” to a middleweight title shot, while Lean ‘n’ Mean Alistair Overeem trades bombs with fellow heavyweight Ben Rothwell. Also: Matt Mitrione takes on Derrick “The Black Beast” Lewis, and lightweight veteran Joe Lauzon meets Michael Chiesa in a battle of skinny grapplers. Plus, there’s a guy on the prelims who fought 13 days ago. Crazy!

In the immortal words of Jeff Monson: “You like watching people get f*cked for free?” Then follow us after the jump for round-by-round results from the UFC Fight Night 50 main card, which our dear friend Ryan Harkness will be compiling after the jump beginning at 10 p.m. ET, along with his usual charming commentary.

(The semi-official poster, via @ActionDonson.)

Welcome to the non-liveblog of UFC 177: Dillashaw vs. Soto, a pay-per-view card so shockingly irrelevant that we’ll barely be covering it tonight. Basically, we’ll update the results through the night — which you can find after the jump — and that’s about it. If something particularly interesting happens, we’ll let you know, and if we find any good GIFs, we will link you to them.

(So you mean to tell me that Matt Brown missed weight, Anthony Johnson made weight, and Lil’ Nog actually showed up? No. Impossible. / Photo by Esther Lin for MMAFighting)

The UFC is in San Jose tonight with a free fight card that can only be described as “legit man [expletive].” UFC on FOX 12 kicks off at 8 p.m. ET / 5 p.m. PT, and BG will be sticking round-by-round results after the jump; refresh the page every few minutes for all the latest.

On the lineup: A welterweight demolition derby between Robbie Lawler and Matt Brown that will likely produce the next welterweight title challenger, the continuing saga of Anthony “Rumble” Johnson at light-heavyweight, Clay Guida bouncing around the cage against fellow featherweight Dennis Bermudez, and this frickin’ guy.

UFC 175 Results: Weidman Decisions Machida, Rousey DESTROYS Davis


(This 4th of July weekend, let’s declare our independence from “Machida drinks pee-pee” jokes. #cagepotatoban / Photo by Esther Lin for MMAFighting.com)

When UFC middleweight champion Chris Weidman knocked out Anderson Silva last July, fans called it a fluke. When Weidman snapped Silva’s leg by checking a kick in their rematch, fans called it a fluke again. Tonight at UFC 175 in Las Vegas, Weidman has the opportunity to prove that his title reign is the real deal when he takes on Lyoto Machida, who could become just the third fighter in UFC history to win a belt in two different weight classes.

Also on tonight’s main card, bantamweight baroness Ronda Rousey will publicly execute Alexis Davis, and Stefan Struve returns to action against Matt Mitrione. Plus: A couple of prelim-caliber fights that somehow creeped onto the PPV due to circumstances beyond anyone’s control.

Fresh off his liveblog of the last UFC PPV (sorry about that, dude), our friend Barry “Bear” Siragusa is BACK in the saddle agaaaain, and will be posting round-by-round results from the “Weidman vs. Machida” pay-per-view broadcast after the jump beginning at 10 p.m. ET / 7 p.m. PT.

The second leg of today’s international UFC double-header — the TUF Brazil 3 Finale in Sao Paulo, Brazil — features top heavyweight contender Stipe Miocic fighting iron-jawed Brazilian light-heavyweight Fabio Maldonado, in a matchup that might best be described as a weird, funky, freaky kind of cirque du soleil-esque type of fight. Plus: The heavyweight and middleweight finals of TUF Brazil 3, Demian Maia fighting an obscure Russian dude, and TUF Brazil 1 winner Rony Jason facing off against Robbie Peralta.

Our buddy Matt Kaplan will be sticking round-by-round results from the FOX Sports 1 main card after the jump beginning at 10 p.m. ET / 7 p.m. PT. Refresh the page every few minutes for all the latest updates, and follow us on twitter for additional deep thoughts.

UFC Fight Night 41 Results: Mousasi Dominates and Chokes Out Munoz


(Come on, Dana. It’s like you’re not even trying anymore. / Photo via MMAJunkie)

And so, the UFC’s terrifying “two events in one goddamned day” campaign is officially underway. Luckily, the promotion is starting out slow, with a Fight Pass card in Berlin featuring a decent middleweight matchup (Mark Munoz vs. Gegard Mousasi) and a bunch of supporting fights that you couldn’t possibly care about. If you want to skip this one and come back later for the TUF Brazil 3 Finale liveblog, that’s totally fine. And if you want to skip that card as well, we can’t really blame you. I mean, for God’s sake, it’s Saturday. Invite your friends over for a barbecue. Spend time with your family. Read a book. Seriously, when was the last time you read a book? Remember how nice that was?

Since very few of you will be watching, we’ve decided to break in a new liveblogger to see how he performs under low pressure. So please give a warm welcome to our brand-new CagePotato Fight Pass Correspondent Bear Siragusa, who will be plugging live results from the UFC Fight Night 41 main card after the jump, beginning at 3 p.m. ET / noon PT.

UFC Fight Night 40: Brown vs. Silva — Liveblogging the Fights You Actually Care About


(Props: MMAJunkie)

Nine months ago, Matt Brown was poised to break into the UFC’s welterweight title picture. Then, he hurt his back, and the division blew up without him. Tonight, “The Immortal” returns to the Octagon in his home state of Ohio to fight the dangerous (but inconsistent) Brazilian scrapper Erick Silva, who is a 2-1 favorite here for some inexplicable reason. It’s a pretty damn compelling fight, actually. But there’s no way we’re gonna waste an entire Saturday night typing out play-by-play for the rest of this mess.

In this installment of “Liveblogging the Fights You Actually Care About,” CP weekend editor Matt Saccaro will be giving you live results for the Matt Brown vs. Erick Silva main event, as well as Erik Koch vs. Daron Cruickshank — barnburner alert! — and whatever else he feels like covering. Plus, quick results from the rest of the event, and our usual analysis of video game commercials and frozen pizza.

The FOX Sports 1 main card begins at 10 p.m. ET / 7 p.m. PT, and we’ll start throwing down results after the jump shortly thereafter. Refresh the page every few minutes for all the latest.

Welcome to CagePotato’s liveblog of UFC 172: Jones vs. Teixeira, aka “probably the most stacked card we’ve ever done in UFC history.” (Warning: The previous statement has not been evaluated by the Department of Consumer Affairs.) In the main event, light-heavyweight phenom Jon Jones will attempt to make his seventh consecutive title defense against hard-sluggin’ Brazilian Glover Teixeira. Plus: Anthony Johnson makes his UFC return against Phil Davis, and Luke Rockhold tangles with Tim Boetsch.

Round-by-round results from the UFC 172 pay-per-view broadcast will be available after the jump beginning at 10 p.m. ET / 7 p.m. PT. Refresh the page every few minutes for all the latest, and shoot us your own thoughts in the comments section or on twitter @cagepotatomma.

UFC on FOX 11: Werdum Batters Browne, Will Meet Velasquez in Mexico

UFC on FOX 11 is underway at the Amway Center in Orlando, headlined by a heavyweight bout between crafty Brazilian veteran Fabricio Werdum and bearded knockout machine Travis Browne. (Winner gets a free trip to Mexico!) Plus: Donald Cerrone vs. Edson Barboza in a guaranteed barnburner at lightweight, and a compelling middeweight matchup between the streaking Brad Tavares and cannonball-like Cuban wrestler Yoel Romero. It’s stacked, free, and arranged for maximum entertainment value.*

After a long hiatus, liveblogger-supreme Anthony Gannon has returned to handle round-by-round results for the FOX main card of “Werdum vs. Browne,” which you can find after the jump beginning at 8 p.m. ET / 5 p.m. PT. Refresh the page every few minutes for all the latest updates, and shoot us your thoughts in the comments section or on twitter @cagepotatomma.

* Except for the Miesha Tate vs. Liz Carmouche fight, which could be decent, I guess, but I still don’t see how it made the main card lineup over Khabib Nurmagomedov vs. Rafael Dos Anjos. I mean, come on. Seriously? The ladies have a collective UFC record of 1-4. Meanwhile, Dos Anjos has won five straight, and Nurmy is 21-0 overall, not including unsanctioned youth fights against half-sedated bear cubs.
