Scott Smith, the original comeback kid, still battling demons

The whole thing felt like a cinematic put on. Real life fights just don’t end like that. Yet it wasn’t fiction that night at the Hard Rock Hotel. It happened at The Ultimate Fighter 4 Finale -- the "Comeback" season -- and Smith, as if on cue, showcased one of the fight game’s most ridiculous comebacks. People were lining up outside to get their picture taken with the man who snatched victory from the jaws of defeat. Mark DellaGrotte, who was one of Smith’s coaches, had to pull Smith aside afterwards to emphasize the gravity of the moment. "He said, ‘you need to understand how big this fight will be for your career and the rest of your life,’" Smith says. "It was pre-recorded, so it hadn’t aired on TV yet. To me it was just another fight. It all sunk in a little later when I saw everyone’s reaction, and I was like, wow, guess it was a big deal." At that moment, at 26 years old, the owl-eyed fighter who came from a family of steel workers -- who, in fact, carried the apt nickname of "Hands of Steel" -- hit the high-water mark of his career.

Raphael Assuncao explains why he isn't fighting Renan Barao at UFC 173

As MMAjunkie reported Thursday, the UFC first contacted Assuncao about the title shot, but the 31-year-old wouldn’t be ready with two months’ notice. The fighter injured his rib in his UFC 170 decision victory over Pedro Munhoz. It moved the WEC vet’s current winning streak to six fights, and after the event, UFC President Dana White suggested the Brazilian could be next for a title shot . Even Barao, himself, recently  endorsed the plan .

Vinny Magalhaes out of Metamoris 3 match with possible MRSA infection

MRSA, or Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus is a flesh eating bacteria that is highly resistant to antibiotics. It's a major danger in hospital environments, and obviously grappling environments which encourage a lot of bacteria growth on their own. If he does indeed have MRSA, it could be a long, painful recovery process and he definitely made the right decision in not getting out on the mat in a grappling match. Hopefully, for Vinny's sake, he can recover quickly and get back to competition once he's free from infection.

Yushin Okami to headline World Series of Fighting Japan debut in August

The UFC released Okami following a co-main event TKO loss to Ronaldo Souza in October, and, much like the Jon Fitch decision, WSOF immediately snapped up a widely regarded top 10 fighter. While Fitch's first two fights have ended in a loss and an underwhelming win, Okami was brought in to beat Savov and he even managed a rare finish. Now Okami has a chance to finally secure a promotional belt (albeit in a smaller promotion), something he's never been able to achieve in his 12 year MMA career.

20 Trading Shots: Downes and Fowlkes on WSOF and lowered expectations

I’ll always take the opportunity to accuse you of being curmudgeonly pessimist, but I think I’ll just call you a “Zuffa shill” to save the people in the comments section the trouble. In your defense, it’s hard not to come to that conclusion. When the president of the UFC tells Ben Askren that he should pick up a couple wins in WSOF and then maybe they’ll give him a look, it’s hard not to view the organization as a minor league. Having said that, I think the truth is a bit more complicated. In Palhares’ and Okami’s cases, they may have been released from the UFC, but not because they couldn’t compete with the “big boys.” The truth is either one of them could be top 10 in his division.

Brazil results roundup: BJJ wiz Celso Venicius stays unbeaten in MMA

"Celsinho", a three-time jiu-jitsu world champion as a black belt, took on Andre Souza at Talent MMA Circuit 7 co-main event in Sao Paulo, Brazil, on Saturday night, and needed one round to get the submission. Souza, a late-replacement for Junior Ribeiro, tapped to a north-south choke with 15 seconds left in the first round.

Ali Abdel-Aziz and Ray Sefo talk about Palhares' heel hook

Palhares, his manager, and even Carl himself also offered their view of the submission, none of which found fault with either fighter. But, whether or not this specific submission really is reflective of poor sportsmanship on the part of Palhares is almost unimportant at this point. In the eyes of most, Palhares has well and truly earned his reputation for bad conduct in the cage and any future incidents that fall in the grey area between needed and unnecessary are going to draw criticism towards his fighting style. Even as a fairly vocal supporter of Palhares surrounding his UFC release, my first reaction to his fight with Carl was "Here we go again."

25
Nothing controversial about Palhares' win, but image campaign just beginning

It’s unreasonable to expect people to forget Palhares’ past so soon. It’s also unreasonable to expect Palhares to play by different rules now just because he screwed up (several times, but still) in the past. Against Carl, he held on exactly as long as he needed to, and not a moment longer. He did absolutely nothing wrong. At the same time, you don’t get extra credit just for following the rules.

Did Cris Cyborg's loss hurt interest in a potential Ronda Rousey fight?

After watching Cris 'Cyborg' Justino dominate every fight since she burst onto the U.S. scene nearly six years ago, it started off shocking, when quickly in the first round of Friday night's Muay Thai battle with Jordina Baars, that this was clearly altogether different. Justino was not going to be a human tornado leaving destruction everywhere in her wake. For the first time, she was in a real fight and her mental toughness was going to be tested. Then, after the second and third rounds of the Lion Fight 14 battle at the Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas, not only was it clear this a real fight, but that Justino was the one in over her head. As the fifth round started, it appeared she was going to need a knockout to win. That didn't happen, and she lost a clear and somewhat lopsided decision. In the end, the story was simple and obvious. A world champion with somewhere between 35 and 38 fights under this set of rules, and who had never lost, is going to have the advantage over a relative novice with two prior fights. It doesn't matter that the novice was an exceptional fighter under a completely different set of rules.

Embracing the Heel: Phil Davis Finally Talking His Way Toward a UFC Title Shot

A perennial top-five caliber fighter in the UFC’s light heavyweight division, Davis has been on the sidelines since last August. But, yes, he’s still on the UFC roster, and he will be competing at UFC 172. Although he hasn’t been active in the cage, it seems the time spent outside it has finally given Davis the knowledge of how to get a title shot in today’s UFC.

"If you go back and watch it, I was looking even before Mo was there that I'm the man of Bellator. He said he what he had to say, I said what he had to say, but I'm still hyped up. I'm in the cage, I have my gloves on, I'm a fighter. I kind of went at him. Anyone who I was going to fight, if he came to the cage, I would have done the same thing."

New study finds ‘considerable concern for the safety of fighters’ in the UFC. Or does it?

Newly published research in The American Journal of Sports Medicine finds high rates of traumatic brain injury (TBI) in UFC fighters relative to other contact sports. To be exact, it finds that 31.9 percent of UFC fights end with one fighter suffering a TBI, and that TBI rates in MMA are twice as high as football, three times higher than boxing and eight times higher than kickboxing and hockey. These all seem like huge numbers, don't they? What are we to do, ban MMA? Require head gear? Like all statistical analyses, the devil is in the details. So today I'll take you through the key points of the study, share my thoughts and let you decide where you stand at the end. This one's for the fight nerds! Wait...all my articles are for fight nerds.

After WSOF-debut win, Yushin Okami to headline WSOF 12 in Japan

On Saturday, in his first non-UFC fight in nearly eight years and 19 fights, Okami made short work of heavy underdog Svetlozar Savov. After a series of takedowns and ground-and-pound, he ultimately tapped out Savov with a third-round arm-triangle choke. It was his first submission win since he tapped out Rory Singer at UFC 66 in 2006.

WSOF 11 set for July with Palhares vs. Fitch, Gaethje vs. Newell title fights

Headlining the card is Rousimar Palhares  (16-6), who submitted Steve Carl to claim the WSOF welterweight title on Saturday, against Jon Fitch  (25-6-1), a fellow UFC vet. The title win marked Palhares’ first post-UFC bout and his second straight win. It almost marked his 10th career submission via leglock. Fitch, meanwhile, recently rebounded from a WSOF-debut loss to Josh Burkman with a split-decision victory over Marcelo Alfaya in October.

In his two WSOF appearances, he’s picked up a knockout win over Alexandre Pimentel and a decision victory over Artur Rofi.

Roufusport kickboxer Dennis Munson dies following decision loss at Knockout Kings event

It's hard to describe, but at the end of the second (round) he seemed to have gassed very very hard. And when he came out for the third he had his hands down virtually the whole time. When his opponent was trying to strike him he fell into the ropes every time. (He) didn't throw a single punch and barely covered up. But his mannerisms were of someone who was delirious. Like, he had no idea what was going on, where he was, and just on his last breath of life. Seriously. I've never seen someone like that before. I've seen guys get KO'd standing and still walk around, but not like this.

Jim Miller: 'I want to be that f–––ing lion'

That statement was made more than four years ago, shortly after Miller at UFC 108. I asked Miller if he still felt that way, "You look at the fan base. The fan base that will look at this interview is not the average fan; they're the above average fan," said Miller. "They're the fan that knows fighting and gets into fighting, but the fans that come to a show, there's a lot of the average fan that wants to see guys fight and just knock each other's heads off. They're the ones that boo. They're the ones that don't pay attention to interviews. They're the ones that might not know who I am when I've had 13 fights in the UFC that have been on the main card. That's the average fan, just like the average NFL fan doesn't know what's going on at the line of scrimmage."

How does Cris Cyborg's Muay Thai loss affect her UFC future? Quite a bit

Why? How does that make any sense? It's simple. Cyborg is a prize fighter. Combat sports is her job. Splitting time between MMA for Invicta FC and Muay Thai for Lion Fight was already not going to pay her as much as the UFC would. Now, we've seen her get handled in Muay Thai by Baars, who is undefeated, but hasn't competed in the sport for three years. Her stock has dropped for a company that probably can't afford to pay her top dollar anyway.
