Why UFC's Toughest Fighters Are Going Vegan

Naysayers notwithstanding, more and more mixed martial arts competitors are either following the Diaz clan’s example or speaking out about a lifetime of animal-free consumption. UFC featherweight fighter Alex Caceres, who defeated Masio Fullen this past January via unanimous decision, converted to veganism within the last couple of years. Retired UFC combatant and former Ultimate Fighter welterweight winner James “Lightning” Wilks has long advocated plant-based eating. High-profile UFC signee CM Punk is a longtime vegan who also swears off any booze or intoxicants. Ex-Super Fight League Women’s Bantamweight Champion Colleen Schneider’s stuck largely to fruit and veggies for nearly 30 years. And then there’s Mac Danzig, generally cited as the first vegan pro MMA star, who made the switch about halfway through his career in the mid-2000s and was prominently featured in the 2011 documentary Forks Over Knives .

2 Paige VanZant makes strong 'Dancing With The Stars' debut

Paige VanZant may not be in the strawweight title mix right now, but the 21-year-old fighter is already one of the top contenders on Season 22 of ABC’s Dancing with the Stars. VanZant, whose parents owned a dance studio and grew up dancing, is partnered with pro Mark Ballas, a two-time winner and seven-time podium finisher, and the two became one of the betting favorites when the cast was announced and was the first competitor introduced in the show’s opening number. The UFC star has shared the cage with some tough competition to start her career, and the challengers are equally stiff on the dance floor. Some of the notable names looking to keep VanZant and Ballas from the title include NFL’ers Antonio Brown and Von Miller, actresses Kim Fields, Jodie Sweetin and Mischa Barton and Wayna Morris from UFC VP of Public Relations Dave Sholler’s favorite band, Boyz II Men. Historically, athletes have done well on the show, with eight first-place finishes in the first 21 seasons. But you have to go back to the Spring 2014 competition to find the last time someone from the sporting world took home top spot, when American figure skater Meryl Davis won alongside Maksim Chmerkovskiy.

UFC owner teases 'epic, massive' event for debut in New York

"I think it's going to be an epic moment for the sport and for our company," Fertitta said. "Obviously, right now all of our focus is on trying to put together the matches for UFC 200, but when we go to New York and we eventually debut at Madison Square Garden, me and Dana (White) and the rest of the team are going to be very focused on delivering for the fans. We're going to put together the best available matches that we can. You'd have the biggest names that we can possibly put on, the biggest names that are available at the time. Believe me, we want to knock it out of the park and we want to deliver to New York in a big way.

Empire State Fistfight: How New York legalized MMA, and why it's such a big deal

“This is the first MMA show in New York,” a promoter says. “This is the first sanctioned MMA show in New York,” says another. “No, we’re the first,” and so it goes, a contest of distinctions and semantics that ultimately never really matters. What does matter is that cages are being set up nearly every weekend, promoters poking their heads out from warrens like once-hunted rabbits, struck by the realization that they no longer need to be afraid. So the fights go down in a hotel ballroom in Albany. They go down in a roller rink outside of Buffalo. They’re in rec centers near Syracuse and Ithaca. They’re everywhere, all of it driven by the economics of not having to pay fighters or fees to an athletic commission, ravenous consumers desperate for live fights, and the ridiculous profit margin therein. Five hundred spectators fill a high school gymnasium in the Bronx, crowding around the cage erected on the floor and packing into the bleachers. When an organization from Florida swoops in to put on a show at Hammerstein Ballroom in Manhattan, they have no problem cramming 1,500 fans into the venue to see out-of-town fighters no one knows.

Still Under WSOF Contract, Rousimar ‘Toquinho’ Palhares Signs with Venator FC

With Jason “Mayhem” Miller already in tow, Venator FC is attempting to sign another controversial fighter. The Italian mixed martial arts promotion announced on Tuesday that it has booked Rousimar Palhares to face Emil Meek on May 21 at Venator FC 3 in Milan. Palhares will fight Meek for the Venator FC welterweight title, but there could be some complications along the way. Palhares remains under contract with World Series of Fighting , and according to a report from , any attempt by the Brazilian to compete for another organization would be a violation of that deal. Apparently that agreement is of little concern to Venator President Frank Merenda, who issued a colorful statement on the situation via Facebook . “Anyway, we don’t give a f--k about WSOF. He will fight for us because we love him, Italian fans love him and he has a family and deserves to make a living,” wrote Merenda, who previously blasted media for criticizing the promotion’s recent signing of Miller. “I’m sick with organizations that try to ruin other people’s [lives].

The Savage Truth: Comeuppance, Part 2

Editor’s note: The views and opinions expressed below are those of the author and do not necessarily reflect the views of, its affiliates and sponsors or its parent company, Evolve Media. I thought I was going to be eating a healthy portion of crow after going on record stating that Conor McGregor would never fight at featherweight again once it was announced he was making the jump to 170 pounds to face Nate Diaz. Now it seems I may have been right after all, despite the fact that just about everyone expected him to defend his featherweight title after getting humbled by Diaz in the UFC 196 main event on March 5. While it makes about zero long-term sense to toss McGregor back in with The 209’s Finest, I can understand why the Irishman and the Ultimate Fighting Championship would be willing, even eager, to rebook the fight that knocked the Golden Child off his lofty perch -- about 1.5 million reasons to be exact, the estimated number of pay-per-view buys UFC 196 did. The $8.1 million gate wasn’t too shabby, either.

The Bottom Line: Conor McGregor-Nate Diaz 2 Makes All the Sense in the World

Editor’s note: The views and opinions expressed below are those of the author and do not necessarily reflect the views of, its affiliates and sponsors or its parent company, Evolve Media. When reports emerged late last week that the Ultimate Fighting Championship was targeting a Conor McGregor - Nate Diaz rematch for the main event at UFC 200, the initial general reaction was one of surprise. McGregor’s submission defeat at the hands of Diaz had seemed to close the door for the time being on the Irishman fighting at higher weight classes. Moreover, Jose Aldo and Frankie Edgar are waiting for their rightful shots at McGregor’s featherweight title, and the discussion after UFC 196 had focused on those two names as the prospective opponents for McGregor at UFC 200. The news that a Diaz rematch was on tap was a surprise. In spite of that, the choice is one that makes more and more sense the longer it is considered. The most obvious precipitating factor in the Diaz-McGregor rematch is the massive success of UFC 196.

We also look forward to scheduling events in Buffalo, Rochester, Syracuse, Utica, Albany, and Brooklyn.  We are excited."

Karate Coach Wants Belfort to Avoid Grappling, Finish ‘Jacare’ in First Round at UFC 198

In the first week of April, Vitor Belfort will add reinforcements to his training camp as he prepares for a May 14 meeting with Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza at UFC 198 . Belfort will be joined by his karate master, Vinicio Antony, who previously helped “The Phenom” train for bouts against Rich Franklin , Yoshihiro Akiyama , Michael Bisping and Dan Henderson . Antony believes that the Brazilian’s sharp hands will be the turning point in his fight against Souza. “Many people say that Vitor is the favorite in the first round,” Antony this week told “The truth is that everybody plans to take him into the second round, but few are able to do so. But the last one who was able to take him into the second was knocked out by him in the same round. “The point is that Vitor well-trained, well-prepared, with a perfect camp, is almost unbeatable. Planning to take him to the second round is one thing. Achieving that goal is a little more difficult.” Antony, who has trained Belfort since the age of 16, does not deny that the 38-year-old middleweight’s strategy for beating Souza is a clear one.

MMA’s Greats of the States | Hawaii: B.J. Penn

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 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.

Former UFC Exec Michael Mersch Named as New World Series of Fighting COO

Former Ultimate Fighting Championship executive Michael Mersch is headed to the World Series of Fighting front office. WSOF announced on Tuesday that Mersch will join the promotion as its chief operating officer and general counsel, effective immediately. Mersch was in a similar role for the UFC from 2007 to 2015, serving as its senior vice president of business and legal affairs as well as its assistant general counsel. Over the past year, Mersch went a different direction, working as the general counsel for the Nevada Attorney General. “I am excited to re-enter the MMA business with one of the premier players and recognizable brands in the space,” Mersch said in a release. “With its robust team of media and sports business executives as well as blue-chip partners, beginning with NBC and IMG, World Series of Fighting is in the midst of an exciting phase of growth with great things on the horizon.” According to the release, Mersch will be responsible for handling WSOF’s “business operations and legal affairs; negotiating and drafting all talent, television, venue, sponsorship and merchandising legal agreements; and spearheading and managing all government relations efforts on behalf of the league.

Lightweights ‘Toninho Furia,’ Brent Primus Complete Bellator 153 Main Card

Brent Primus will face Gleristone “Toninho Furia” Santos in a lightweight tilt on the Bellator 153 main card on April 22. The California-based promotion announced the pairing on Tuesday. Bellator 153 takes place at Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Conn., and is headlined by a welterweight championship clash between Andrey Koreshkov and Benson Henderson . The evening’s main card airs on Spike TV at 9 p.m. ET/8 p.m. CT. Primus, 30, is 6-0 as a professional, with four of those triumphs coming under the Bellator banner. The Sports Lab product has competed infrequently of late, winning one fight apiece in both 2014 and 2015. Most recently, he captured a split verdict over Derek Anderson at Bellator 141 last August. Santos, meanwhile, came up short in his promotional debut, dropping a split decision to John Teixeira da Conceicao at Bellator 143 this past September. That defeat ended a nine-fight winning streak for the Brazilian Top Team member, who owns a 27-5 career mark overall.

Jim Genia Joins Press Row

Every Wednesday, Administrative Editor Jordan Breen welcomes a member of the mixed martial arts media into “Press Row” on the blog. This week, Breen is joined by veteran New York-based MMA journalist Jim Genia . Tuesday ended the most difficult chapter in the eight-year odyssey towards sanctioned MMA in New York, as the State Assembly voted 113-25 to legalize the sport. Breen and Genia, who has expertly covered the push toward regulation in the state, talk about the farcical and amusing political show that took place on Tuesday, what bureaucratic steps come next to clear the way for the UFC to run at Madison Square Garden, and when that card comes, what fighters might find themselves on it, from Jon Jones to Chris Weidman to Jimmie Rivera . Breen and Genia also discuss whether Bellator MMA will beat the UFC to the punch by running the Barclay's Center in Brooklyn, if Zuffa will stay true to its word of delivering four events per year to New York state and for how long. As well, Genia, the author of ”Raw Combat: The Underground World of Mixed Martial Arts,” reminisces on the greatest moments in underground, unsanctioned New York MMA, including early bouts from Frankie Edgar .

Boxing: Jesse Hart’s Close Call

Teddy Atlas, the noted trainer and TV color commentator, has referred to the boxing ring as “a chamber of truth,” where any number of difficult questions are asked and answered in the most unforgiving sport’s crucible of competition. Questions were indeed asked during the 10-round super middleweight bout between rising contender Jesse Hart and journeyman Dashon Johnson on Friday, but the truthfulness of the answers remains a matter of interpretation. Had Hart -- the Philadelphia native who scored a unanimous decision before a packed, supportive hometown crowd of 1,322 at the 2300 Arena -- displayed the grit and mettle of a future world champion despite being knocked down once and possibly twice? Or had he been exposed as a still-inexperienced neophyte by a second-tier opponent who had come in having lost 16 of his previous 24 bouts? More to the point: Will -- or should -- Hart (20-0, 16 KOs) now move on to a WBO title fight against the winner of the April 9 battle between champion Arthur Abraham (44-4, 29 KOs) and Gilberto Ramirez (33-0, 24 KOs)? Or would the son of 1970s middleweight contender Eugene “Cyclone” Hart be better served by waiting another year, maybe longer, while he gains additional seasoning? Even before his son stepped inside the ropes against Johnson, the elder Hart had suggested that maybe the wiser course of action would be for the 26-year-old to put off any bid for a world title until he logged another “six or seven” fights against a variety of fighters who would help him fill in whatever blank spaces in his repertoire that needed to be filled.

25’s Top 10: Fighters Who Lost Their Pro Debuts - Top 10

Even elite mixed martial artists usually experience defeat at least once in their careers, some of them in their professional debuts.

New York Becomes Last State to Legalize MMA After Bill Passes Through Assembly

Mixed martial arts is finally legal in New York. After making it onto the Assembly floor for the first time in seven years, a bill to legalize MMA in New York passed with 113-to-25 vote on Tuesday; the bill needed a minimum of 76 votes. While there was opposition -- both of the outdated and outrageous variety -- over the course of a three-hour debate from some Assembly members, it wasn’t enough to prevent the bill from passing, clearing the way for the Ultimate Fighting Championship and other organizations to hold events in the Empire State. The UFC has already reportedly reserved a date to host an event at Madison Square Garden in November. In a release, the Las Vegas-based promotion also reiterated plans to hold four events per year in New York for the first three years after the legalization of MMA. “New York’s amazing arenas – upstate and downstate – have worked with us to advocate passage of this bill. So, too, have restaurants, hotels, businesses and others who recognize the economic value professional MMA can bring to New York,” UFC CEO Lorenzo Fertitta said in a release.
