The Savage Truth: Here We Go Again

Editor's note: The views and opinions expressed below are those of the author and do not necessarily reflect the views of Sherdog.com, its affiliates and sponsors or its parent company, Evolve Media. Stop me if you’ve heard this one before. There is a highly anticipated title fight and, less than two weeks out from the event, one of the contestants has to pull out due to injury. When it becomes known the challenger isn’t going to be making it to the cage on fight night, the champion decides it isn’t in his best interest to fight someone else on short notice... err, I mean, the champion gets hurt, too. Seriously, you can stop me any time if you know where I’m going here. It was disappointing to hear that Cain Velasquez was injured yet again and wouldn’t be able to make it for his second date with Fabricio Werdum at UFC 196 . What wasn’t surprising was hearing that Werdum had questions about squaring off with Stipe Miocic on 13 days’ notice. You’ve already seen the full media barrage from the Miocic camp after Werdum pulled out of the potential title fight.

The Bottom Line: Ryan Bader’s Never-Ending Quest for Respect

Editor's note: The views and opinions expressed below are those of the author and do not necessarily reflect the views of Sherdog.com, its affiliates and sponsors or its parent company, Evolve Media. When Ryan Bader burst onto the Ultimate Fighting Championship scene in 2008 by knocking out Vinny Magalhaes to win the eighth season of “The Ultimate Fighter,” big things were expected of the undefeated prospect with excellent wrestling and knockout power in his fists. The UFC saw him as a potential future top contender or champion in the prestigious light heavyweight division. Now, Bader is the No. 4 contender in the UFC’s 205-pound rankings; and with a win over Anthony Johnson in the UFC on Fox 18 main event this Saturday, he is likely to receive the next title shot against the winner of Daniel Cormier - Jon Jones 2. You would think that over seven years since his UFC start, Bader has finally risen to the level that was expected of him. Yet, it still feels like there is something missing. On paper, Bader checks off many of the boxes you would want in an elite fighter.

Rafael dos Anjos: ‘Cerrone & Henderson Are Better Fighters Than McGregor’

Less than two months out from his headlining spot at UFC 197 , lightweight champion Rafael dos Anjos last week returned to Brazil in order to promote the March 5 main event against featherweight ace Conor McGregor . Speaking to Sherdog.com in his hometown of Niteroi’s beautiful City Park, dos Anjos revealed that participating in a press conference with the trash-talking Irishman was less than enjoyable. “Of course, being in a press conference is part of our job,” dos Anjos said, “but it’s not a good experience to sit for more than an hour listening to a joker perform his routine. That wasn’t funny to me.” Much has been made of the UFC’s decision to allow McGregor -- who only recently captured the company’s 145-pound belt -- to move up the scale in search of a second title. Dos Anjos acknowledged that, although McGregor undoubtedly receives preferential treatment in comparison to some other UFC champions, it is not without a reason. “Of course there’s a difference, just because of how much Conor brings to the company.

Fabricio Werdum Pulls Out of UFC 196 with Back Injury

UFC heavyweight champion Fabricio Werdum has withdrawn from UFC 196 . Werdum made the announcement to Brazilian media on Monday, less than 24 hours after challenger Cain Velasquez pulled out of the event. With Velasquez injured, Werdum was slated to face late replacement Stipe Miocic in the Feb. 5 card’s headliner. Now, the pay-per-view is left without a championship main event. UFC has not announced whether Miocic will remain on the card, or which bout will fill the main event slot. Currently, the co-main event position features a welterweight duel between Johny Hendricks and Stephen Thompson . Werdum explained that a back injury suffered in training last week would not allow him to compete against Velasquez, who also went down with a back ailment. “I’ve been training without kicks for the last two weeks due to a fissure in my toe,” Werdum said. “Even with that, I decided to fight Velasquez. Last time we fought, I had a serious head injury, went 40 days without sparring and fought him. “Last Friday, I pulled my back.

MMA Greats of the States | Arizona: Benson Henderson

Mixed martial artists come from every corner of the globe, bearing a variety of styles. Sometimes, fighters are products of their environment, favoring disciplines prevalent in the country or state from which they hail. Various regions of the United States are considered factories for great fighters, though that certainly is not the case with each state. In this weekly Sherdog.com series, the spotlight will shine on the best mixed martial artist of all-time from each of the 50 states. Fighters do not necessarily need to be born in a given state to represent it; they simply need to be associated with it. For example, reigning Ultimate Fighting Championship welterweight titleholder Robbie Lawler may have been born in San Diego, but few would recognize him as a Californian.

Jon Jones 'Would Totally' Fight Stipe Miocic At UFC 196, But There's A Catch

Although Jones making his heavyweight debut for the UFC title would be an amazing moment, the odds of it happening are pretty low. Werdum stated he believes he’ll be back within two or three months , leaving us to believe there won’t be an extended layoff for the champion. It’s highly unlikely the UFC would choose to strip Werdum of the title if that’s the case. Jones also has a potential title fight of his own down the line as a rematch with Daniel Cormier is all but a certainty at this point.

Brendan habitually mispronouncing every major UFC fighter's name on the roster is a nice touch, too. I also want to hear more about Bryan's mad greco skills. I think he should do each episode shirtless.

Joe Rogan and friends

“One of the most complex and exciting stand-ups working in America today.  Like an idealistic hippy stuck inside the body of a testosterone-pumped US marine.  He’s been likened to late great US comedians such as Bill Hicks and Sam Kinison, but although he exhibits a similar brand of furious indignation, his observations and revelations are entirely his own.  His angry, insightful act is an absorbing battle between his raw libertarian instincts and his refined liberal sensibilities.”   -- William Cook, The Guardian   A standup comedian for more than 20 years, Joe Rogan sells out theaters internationally with his inquisitive and intense comedic style. His comedy special “Joe Rogan: Live from the Tabernacle” was released in December 2012 via his website. Rogan previously starred in two hour long specials, “Talking Monkeys in Space” (2009) and “Joe Rogan Live” (2007), and released the CD’s “Shiny Happy Jihad” (2007) and “I’m Gonna Be Dead Someday” (2000). Rogan is host of “The Joe Rogan Experience,” a twice-weekly long form conversation with guests that is one of the most popular comedy podcasts on iTunes.

Fabricio Werdum's greatest sin? Being a little too sensible, and way too honest

And, logically, that’s a completely reasonable explanation. At least, you know, the second part. The first part, the stuff about him planning on fighting hurt as long as it was against Velasquez, is the kind of thing you shouldn’t say even if you’re thinking it, because you’ve essentially just told us you’re too hurt to fight one guy, but not too hurt to fight a different guy. And, if you’ve been paying attention, you should know by now that fight fans love nothing so much as they love to accuse a professional tough guy of being scared to fight.
