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.

Ken Shamrock slams Joe Rogan: Don't hide behind your mic | BJPENN.COM

These people fall in behind him and say, ‘We’re with you, Joe Rogan because we believe that you’re not going to say anything that’s not true.’ “Don’t be hiding behind your mic and saying things that are not true. I would never lose to him. I don’t want to lose to him, but just like anybody else, when you do, you have to swallow the pill and move on. You shouldn’t have said that. You were wrong.”

'Phenom'enal - Belfort's Memorable Moments

On November 7, Vitor Belfort will return to his native Brazil to face off with one of his most storied rivals, Dan Henderson, in a rubber match that will settle the score between them once and for all. It’s also an opportunity for “The Phenom” to begin his quest for another shot at the 185-pound crown as well as build on the legacy that you can read about below. Tra Telligman – February 7, 1997 – UFC 12 (Watch on UFC FIGHT PASS) Result – Belfort TKO 1 Few, if any, knew about Brazil’s Vitor Belfort when the fresh-faced 19-year old made his UFC debut against the Lions Den’s Tra Telligman at UFC 12. 77 seconds after the opening bell though, people couldn’t stop talking about his fast hands and fight-altering power. Belfort would win another bout later that night, in 43 seconds over Scott Ferrozzo, and when he destroyed Tank Abbott in less than a minute three months later at UFC 13, the legend of “The Phenom” was born.

Fight Night Sao Paulo 2015 Fantasy Preview

The UFC travels to Brazil this weekend for a star-studded card littered with legends, top 15 fighters and future contenders from the top to the bottom of this 13-bout card from Sao Paulo.   In the main event, Vitor Belfort and Dan Henderson look to put a stamp on an epic trilogy that stretches back to 2006 when they first met in PRIDE Fighting Championships. Most recently, Belfort earned a title shot with a first-round finish over Henderson, which got the American icon fired up for a third shot against his longtime rival.  This will probably be the final time they meet in their Hall of Fame careers, so Belfort and Henderson will definitely try to make this one count.   Also on the card, Glover Teixeira looks to add another top 10 win to his record as he takes on former wrestling standout Patrick Cummins, who returns to action after an impressive win over Rafael “Feijao” Cavalcante in his last outing.  Plus, bantamweight prospect Thomas Almeida will look to keep his undefeated record intact as he faces Anthony Birchak, and with a slew of top fights on this card, there's no shortage of action from the FIGHT PASS prelims all the way through to the main event.

Opinion: Does Miesha Tate Have a Point?

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. Miesha Tate is not happy. More than two months have passed since the No. 1 contender for Ronda Rousey ’s Ultimate Fighting Championship women’s bantamweight title saw her promised rematch ripped from under her in favor of seventh-ranked Holly Holm . Tate hasn’t been booked for a fight and has been very vocal about her frustration with everything from the discrepancy in pay to what it will take for her to get another crack at Rousey. She has described her MMA career being “in limbo” and has even gone so far as suggesting the possibility of retirement if things don’t change for her soon. Does she have a leg to stand on? On the surface, it surely seems like Tate has a reasonable gripe. She’s the No. 1 contender for the title and is watching an unproven fighter ranked beneath her get an opportunity to be champion. The way that it was handled -- Tate didn’t even get a courtesy call from the UFC before being pulled out of the fight -- is certainly something with which you can empathize.
