    With news leaking this week that Amanda "The Lady Killer" Bell (4-4) and Amber Leibrock (2-1) have signed with Bellator, and Megan Anderson continuing to cry about not being offered a contract to fight Cris "Cyborg," it's pretty clear the UFC isn't committed to investing in the future of its female...

    With caveat, Michael Floyd is perfect signing by the Vikings

    The Minnesota Vikings officially announced the signing of wide receiver Michael Floyd Wednesday evening.

    Letourneau to thank for 'TUF 26' and UFC's new female flyweight division

    Not long ago, Dana White told an AXS contributor that he had no plans to open a female 125-pound division in the UFC. He stated quite simply that natural flyweights "would have to cut down to 115 [pounds]" if they wanted to compete inside the world-famous Octagon. He stuck to his word for a while...

    With "TUF 26" official again after a week of confusion, Invicta FC 23 has transformed from standard UFC Fight Pass fodder into a high-stakes affair -- with at least a couple UFC roster spots on the line.

    Alex Oliveira, Eric Ott win Triton Fights title belts

    UFC star Ryan LaFlare is widely regarded as one of the top fighters in the world. But as a coach, the 33-year-old has managed to fly under the radar over the years.

    Chicago Bears 2017 draft preview

    The Chicago Bears are in the best position to “win” the draft among the NFC North teams.

    The Sharks are out, but how will the NHL's second round of playoff go down?

    As predicted, the San Jose Sharks lost in the first round of the 2017 National Hockey League playoffs, although to the team's credit, they were oh-so-close to winning the opening series against the Edmonton Oilers.

    Hopefully UFC Fight Night 108 will go down in history as the final time Jake Ellenberger and Diego "The Nightmare" Sanchez competed inside the world-famous Octagon.
