Aggressive kickboxer, Paul Felder, will take on fellow knockout artist, Dan Hooker, this Saturday (Feb. 22, 2020) at UFC Fight Night 168 inside Spark Arena in Auckland, New Zealand. Don’t look now, but Felder is making his title run. The Philadelphia native pretty much jumped into the deep end of the Lightweight division when he first joined the roster back in 2014, establishing himself as an extremely tough out. He also suffered some losses in...

Mauricio Rua and Antonio Rogerio Nogueira will meet inside the cage for a third time at UFC 250 in Sao Paulo, Brazil, on May 9, multiple sources confirmed to MMA Fighting following a report by ESPN. “Shogun” and “Minotouro” first fought inside the PRIDE ring in June 2005, when Rua won a close unanimous decision. Rua, who had beaten Quinton Jackson two months prior to that, went on to win the company’s tournament with stoppages...

It only lasted 40 seconds, but Conor McGregor’s fast finish of Donald Cerrone is still being felt. In case you missed it, full footage of McGregor’s comeback fight at UFC 246 was released via ESPN SportsCenter’s Instagram on Wednesday, leaving fans free to scrutinize every moment of the brief contest. Afterwards, everyone had an opinion on the fight, including ESPN pundit Stephen A. Smith (much to the chagrin of some of MMA’s more vocal athletes...

The fight between Kamaru Usman and Colby Covington turned out to be a classic, but it didn’t play out the way most expected it to. UFC welterweight champion Usman (16-1 MMA, 11-0 UFC) faced former UFC 170-pound interim champ Covington (15-2 MMA, 10-2 UFC) in the main event of this past December’s UFC 245, where both men stood toe-to-toe in the middle of the octagon and traded for 24 minutes. Considering both men’s decorated collegiate...

The person asked to remain anonymous as the bout is not set and the promotion has yet to make an announcement. The news was first reported by ESPN. UFC Oklahoma City takes...

Khabib Nurmagomedov has reiterated that he’s not interested in a rematch with Conor McGregor, but his head coach thinks it’s not entirely up to him. UFC lightweight champion Nurmagomedov (28-0 MMA, 12-0 UFC) submitted McGregor (22-4 MMA, 10-2 UFC) in 2018 in a dominant performance where the bad blood boiled over in a post-fight brawl. While it may have meant unfinished business for McGregor, the chapter was apparently closed for Nurmagomedov, who has said he has...
