The reaction most Blackzilians gave when Alistair Overeem left their squad earlier this year was essentially unanimous - Don't let the door hit ya where the good Lord split ya!
The California State Athletic Commission has released the official salaries for all of the contestants who competed in Saturday’s “UFC 177: Dillashaw vs. Soto” event.
Sure middleweights Gegard Mousasi and Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza are headlining Friday's show in Foxwoods, but perhaps the biggest story entering this weekend's fights is that heavyweight Alistair Overeem (pictured) isn't nearly as Ubereem as he once was.
Better late than never. It was the rematch that was supposed to go down at UFC 176, but that August event got flushed down the toilet after the featured attraction between featherweight champ Jose Aldo and Chad Mendes fell through.
From a professional fighting standpoint, 2014 has been one to forget for UFC lightweight champion Anthony Pettis. From a marketing standpoint, "Showtime" couldn't have asked for a better year.
Renan Barao (pictured) was being blamed for single-handedly ruining an already lackluster UFC 177 card when he failed to make weight for his rematch against bantamweight champion TJ Dillashaw.
Askren, and you shall receive ... maybe. Freshly-minted ONE FC welterweight champion Ben Askren (pictured) might finally be inching his way closer to joining the UFC.
UFC 177 took a lot of flack for its lack of star power, significant fights, etc., but Yancy Medeiros (pictured) did his part by kicking off the pay-per-view broadcast in style.
Danny Castillo thought he did enough to post a win in front of his hometown peeps on Saturday at UFC 177, but two of the three judges sitting octagon-side who got paid to score his scrap with Tony Ferguson (pictured) disagreed.
