    UFC’s Sean Strickland (24-3 MMA, 11-3 UFC) thinks he can manage some serious brain damage. And it sounds like he is already be dealing with side effects from a hit to the dome after he made a crazy comment that he’d be at peace with dying, or possibly killing someone, in the Octagon. Both outcomes still fall within the context of UFC rules, of course. CLICK HERE FOR MORE SPORTS COVERAGE ON FOXNEWS.COM "If I killed somebody in the ring, it’d f—ing make me very happy," said the UFC fighter, in an interview with TMZ Sports ahead of his fight against Uriah Hall. The unhinged comments are bad news for the rest of the UFC … because Strickland sure knows how to fight. The comments were telling of his fervor in his fight against Hall (17-10 MMA, 10-8 UFC), a fight which the faux Ivan Drago won easily. Strickland pummeled the Middleweight fighter on Saturday night and reduced him to a punching bag with arms en route to a win via unanimous decision. "Oh, I love it. Absolutely. But, I’m...

When asked about the bitter rivals sharing the octagon again, Abdelaziz told ESNews: “Brother, Conor is not even a high-level fighter anymore. "He needs to work on his life. He doesn’t need to fight anymore." Nurmagomedov, 32, submitted McGregor in the second round of their UFC 229 grudge match in October 2018. The undefeated Russian went on to...
    UFC welterweight Jorge Masvidal sat down with Ariel Helwani from ESPN, heading into his title fight rematch against Kamaru Usman. ‘Gamebred’ is gearing up for his 50th professional fight and possibly his last opportunity to fight for undisputed gold. However, given the way his career has shaped up, it’s probable he could land another marquee opportunity. What’s more, title fights aren’t the only avenues available to Masvidal who is now a bonafide star in the sport. Chiefly, Masvidal was actually expected to return to action against Colby Covington after coaching against him on TUF. However, plans for a Masvidal-Covington-led ‘The Ultimate Fighter’ season fell through, and now Alexander Volkanovski and Brian Ortega stepped up. Also Read: WOW!

"If there is one thing people respect about all fighters it’s the toughness to deal with adversity in battle and we have not seen that out...
    Conor McGregor is going to rematch Dustin Poirier after 6 and a half years for his highly anticipated return to the Octagon at UFC 257. Conor last fought Donald Cerrone in January 2020 and is coming back after a year. However, he has actually fought just twice since his win over Eddie Alvarez in 2016. That is a lot of time spent away from the cage. Even though he went into the boxing ring, Conor never forgot about MMA. He has claimed on multiple occasions that he kept active in his training in the sport. As a result, McGregor seems a little miffed about the lack of attention the media has given to his development as a fighter, especially compared to how they are treating Dustin Poirier. He spoke to Barstool Sports. “They never like to give me my credit. That’s okay. That’s fine. I have improved immensely and Dustin has also- to an extent. You know he is tough, he still has the same reactions, shots, and entries, but he has improved regarding the clock, he has been in...

    Joaquin Buckley. Photo by Josh Hedges/Zuffa LLC via Getty Images Joaquin Buckley scored a knockout strike so rare and so awesome, it has been watched more than eight million times, and rising, since the UFC posted the clip on Twitter on Saturday. The American fighter called the move "Wakanda style," and considering he posed with his arms crossed like the iconic salute in the "Black Panther" movie, it is hard to disagree. Modestly, Buckley said afterward the extraordinary knock out that all he wants to do is stay under-the-radar.
