Gilbert Melendez to Bellator doesn’t change the MMA landscape at all

Gilbert Melendez

We reported earlier this week that top five lightweight Gilbert Melendez had agreed in principle to sign with Bellator MMA after negotiations with the UFC fell through.

If he goes to Bellator, there are many people, like Dave Meltzer, who think the move would be a game changer. Read More »

chris leben - post-ufc132

Former UFC middleweight Chris "The Crippler" Leben retired early this year after spending nearly a decade fighting inside the Octagon. The Ultimate Fighter season one contestant went on to put together a 12-10 run in the UFC winning six fight night bonuses in the process. Despite 22 fights in pro MMA's premiere organization and all the bonuses he'd won, Leben posted on Twitter today that the UFC left him "broken with nothing" and he wished he'd been a truck driver instead.

Does a change in wording mean anything for UFC ‘of the night’ winners

money-pic

UFC officials announced a change in the way fight night bonuses are labeled. Is this a move to be more politically correct? Gone are the standard "submission and knockout of the night" tags. In a press release we learned that there would still be a "fight of the night" bonus for the winner and loser of the most spectacular fight at a given event. Replacing the finishing bonuses will be "performance of the night". Here is how it has been explained. Read More »
