Sometimes fights are stopped too early and sometimes too late. In a perfect world, of course, all fights would have been stopped exactly on time.  But realistically judges usually have to decide (in a split second) between stopping the fight or letting it continue when the fighter seem to be really hurt but might still […]

There seem to be a consensus that Jon Jones should fight Alexander Gustafsson next, as they had a very close fight and it was the first and only time Jon Jones was in some danger.

It’s become customary for MMA news sites to report fighter payouts after major events.  Unfortunately, only a handful of US state athletic commissions publish the salary info.  For international events, or in US states which do not report fighter payouts, the salary info is not available.   This doesn’t stop folks from still reporting fighter […]
