“A funny thing about that. After I beat McMann in 1:06, my coach and I had a bet. He was like, ‘No one is ever going to beat a minute and six second knockout in women’s (MMA).’ And I was like, ‘Yeah, somebody is.’ I told him somebody will beat it and then we had a bet going for a couple thousand dollars. Then I beat it. No, wait, I said that nobody could beat it, that was…

JSN: Have you thought about changing the name since not many people seem to know what “Bellator” means?
SC: How about “Spikeforce”?
JSN: You read my mind.
SC: There’s been some dialogue about if they are going to rebrand or not. But I think that hasn’t been decided and as far as I know it’s going to be Bellator. They’ve done this 6 or 7 years and build up a following and…

“I’ve thrown friendliness out the window — I’m in fight mode now,” Bisping says. “You know how everybody likes to talk s–t about me, about he’s an a–hole I am, this and that? Cung Le jumped on the bandwagon with that kind of thing. I went out there to Macau for a press conference and I was very cordial with the guy, all pleasantries. He doesn’t have a reason to say a bad…

Porn star Christy Mack and War Machine were still close enough 20 days ago that they were holding hands in public at an MMA fight.
TMZ obtained the pic taken in Temecula, CA while they were attending the fight … and their coziness seems to contradict Christy’s initial claim that they’ve been broken up for several months.
Dana White, Ronda Rousey, Shaq, and Lorenzo Fertitta. Are the lastest to give into the “ICE CHALLENGE”.
Jon Jones announces surgery via Facebook
I’d like to apologize to all the fans who were excited for UFC 178. Earlier this week, I suffered an injury while training for the fight.

“It’s part of the game,” said Greg Jackson. “It wasn’t like … somebody went for a flying kick and dislocated it. Somebody went for a takedown, [Jones] stepped the wrong way, twisted the wrong way and down he went. He was fighting it, and he just twisted it. And then it just popped.
“Alistair’s maybe 240, Jon’s 220. It’s not like he was working with a giant moose. It was just…
"I would say that through out my mixed martial arts career, the biggest life lesson that I have learned is the power of the mind," said Jones.
