UFC 205 is scheduled to be the promotion’s first foray into Madison Square Garden on Nov. 12. So of course anytime you do a show at the Garden, you need to make sure you go big like the apple.

A few weeks back Bellator MMA nabbed Rory MacDonald, and now the Viacom-owned promotion has able to sign “The Bad Guy” Chael Sonnen.
UFC 203 went down from beautiful Cleveland Ohio, the city of recent champions, like the Cleveland Cavaliers and UFC heavyweight champion Stipe Miocic (16-2).
I’m not going out on a limb by saying that Saturday's UFC on FOX 21 at Rogers Arena was the best MMA event we’ve seen on these shores.
Sometimes much-hyped fights don’t live up to what the well-produced and slick video previews tell us is going to be the “biggest fight in UFC history!” But at UFC 202, Conor McGregor vs Nate Diaz 2 surpassed all of the hyperbole.
Leading up to one of the biggest fights of the year, Conor McGregor (19-3) has been busy trolling WWE wrestlers. Maybe he’s planting seeds for a future Wrestlemania appearance, but he should be focused on the “real fight” coming this Saturday at UFC 202 in Las Vegas.
Conor McGregor is ready for his redemption fight against Nate Diaz at UFC 202 on Aug. 20.
MMASucka.com reported over the weekend that Port Coquitlam’s Jeremy “JBC” Kennedy (8-0) is finally getting his shot in a UFC Octagon.
If you’ve ever looked at a banned substances list, it’s massive, detailed and — in some ways — unfair. Athletes have been popped for tainted supplements (it does happen) or even something as simple as testing positive for ingredients found in the food they ate while on vacation overseas. True story.
UFC 200 took place from the brand new T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. It was a stacked card of epic proportions. Despite losing Jon Jones to a positive drug test, the card was still deep enough to remain interesting.
UFC 200 has a lot of things going for it, but one of the biggest fights I’m looking forward to is Brock Lesnar (5-3) vs Mark Hunt (12-10-1).
It’s pretty crazy to think that we’ve already had 200 UFC events. It has been an absolute pleasure writing this column and covering MMA over the years. So thank you to all of you who have picked up a copy of 24 hours.
B.C.’s own Rory MacDonald (18-4) fought Stephen Thompson (13-1) last Saturday night in the main event at UFC Fight Night 89 in Ottawa, Ontario.
The UFC made a surprise announcement Wednesday that they will be coming back to Vancouver on Aug. 27. This caught me and others by surprise because, frankly, the organization hasn’t had a lot of success in this town. I personally thought it would be a while before we saw the Octagon return to the friendly confines of Rogers Arena.
If you missed UFC 199, you missed one of the most action-packed and shocking pay-per-views of the year.
Diaz was recently on a special edition of The MMA Hour and told Ariel Helwani that he wants to get what’s his.
It’s easy to make fun of Cleveland, Ohio as a painful sports town. The poor bastards haven’t won any kind of championship since the Browns won a Super Bowl in 1964. Kind of reminds me of Vancouver.
Floyd Mayweather Jr. must be bored or enjoys trolling the MMA world. Late last week, British tabloid The Sun reported that a boxing match between “Money” Mayweather and UFC champion Conor McGregor was currently being negotiated.
After being out of action for more than a year, it shouldn’t surprise us that Jon Jones 2.0 appeared gun shy.
The weekend’s UFC card was full of finishes and technical prowess — but it also changed the climate in some divisions.
