Is Tyron Woodley or Rory MacDonald the best welterweight in the world?

Valentina Shevchenko: Small caliber but deadly

Is there a more iconic pair of MMA brothers than Nick Diaz and Nate Diaz? Casual fans see them as overblown, gangster wannabes whose popularity far outstrips their skill. True fans look past their onstage persona and see genuine human…

Holly Holm: Desperate giant killer

If her career was an amusement park attraction, riders would be suing Holly Holm for whiplash. She’s the Vanilla Ice of MMA, except she could whoop Suge Knight in a fight. You wouldn’t think a title challenger would be fighting…
