Adesanya has the 6th-highest significant striking accuracy rate (53.9%) and highest significant striking defense rate (69.1%) in UFC Middleweight history

In the span of 14 months and 3 days, Style Bender goes from making his UFC debut to fighting for a title. Interim or not, that's impressive.

Just goes to show ... being fun, active and a badass pays off.

Adesanya vs. Gastelum at UFC 236 will mark the 20th interim title fight in UFC history.

From 1993-2010 there were just 6 interim title bouts.

From 2012-2019, there's been 14

Georges St-Pierre will officially announce his retirement from MMA Thursday morning at a press conference in Montreal.

GSP had hoped to secure a super-fight with Khabib. Once that didn’t materialize, he decided it was time to walk away.

UFC lightweight Dustin Poirier has campaigned almost nonstop for a big fight. Now he’s looking for the exit door.

Poirier, called for his release Wednesday after several months of inactivity and frustration laid bare on social media.

“These guys should just release me,” he tweeted.

In a text message to MMAjunkie, Poirier confirmed his desire to be released and a request for a bump in pay to fight Al Iaquinta at UFC 236, though he added no official offer had been made by the promotion for the April 13 pay-per-view event.

Asked about promotions that could potentially host him, including Bellator, Rizin FF and ONE Championship, Poirier added, “Anywhere.”

Paul Felder’s collapsed lung was not healing on its own, so, according to his manager Brian Butler, he is in surgery right now to fix it. Felder is expected to be out of surgery in about an hour and will have to spend another week in Phoenix before he is cleared to fly home.

She is hoping to return in November or December and wants to face Holm, rematch Cyborg next year and then potentially retire.


Always an excuse with this bitch.

According to Dana, Tony Ferguson was offered the interim lightweight title fight against Holloway and turned it down

Of course he did ... He won the interim strap already and got screwed, why fight for it again?

Poirier was so frustrated with the lack of clarity on the division, he booked an upcoming flight from his Florida camp home to Louisiana, because UFC "wasn't making fights." That flight is now canceled and he's 7 weeks out from a title fight.


Whatta clusterfuck

Khalid Murtazaliev, who stopped C.B. Dollaway violently in his UFC debut, has tested positive for steroids, UFC anti-doping partner USADA announced Friday ... tested positive for drostanolone (anabolic steroid)

Shit deal for Dolloway ... Murtazaliev was a short-notice replacement, wasn’t drug tested before the fight and wasn’t drug tested on fight night. Beats Dollaway by TKO on 9/15. Test from 10/3 comes back dirty ... Murtazaliev keeps the win
