UFC: Which Champion Will Get Stripped Next?

So far this year we’ve seen Conor McGregor and  Nicco Montano stripped of their UFC titles. There are a few more candidates who could face the same fate sooner than later. Who’s next? The first candidate could possibly be the UFC light heavyweight and heavyweight champion, Daniel Cormier. The double champ expressed a desire to defend both titles since claiming the UFC heavyweight title at UFC 226 in July. Cormier also gave a deadline until he officially calls it a career – March 20th, his birthday. Cormier is nearly three…

Who is Headlining UFC 230?

With UFC 228 in the books and no UFC 229 press conference in sight (reportedly taking place next Thursday) says Brett Okamoto, it’s only right to shift our attention to UFC 230.

Cody Garbrandt Talks Knockouts in Practice

Matt Serra made headlines earlier this week when he confirmed he’s seen the tape of Garbrandt knocking out TJ Dillashaw in practice. The teammates turned rivalsĀ have been going back and forth publicly about the existence of this tape ever since their fight was announced back in June. TMZ even apparently offered Alpha Male head coach, Justin Bucholz $50,000 for a copy of saidĀ tape.
