The List: Needle-movers, or the fighters who light the Internet on fire

mmajunkie.com — For too long, our writers' hyper-specific arguments have been confined to the private corridors of the Internet. Welcome to The List, where we take their instant message bickerings, add a little polish, and make them public. Today: With Ronda Rousey-mania sweeping the Internet in the workup to Saturday's UFC 190 event, we talk about the fighters who always draw an online crowd.

On this edition of The List, the fighters who the Internet just can't get enough of. Even @DannStupp gets in on it: mmajunkie.com/2015/07/the-li…

Demetrious Johnson vs. John Dodson II headlines UFC 191 in Las Vegas

mmajunkie.com — September's UFC 191 event finally has a pay-per-view headliner, and the organization's smallest - and arguably quickest - division will be on display. UFC officials today announced UFC flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson (22-2-1 MMA, 10-1-1 UFC) and challenger John Dodson (17-6 MMA, 7-1 UFC) will rematch at the event.

Shocker: Brazil commission overturns Leandro Silva vs. Drew Dober, declares no-contest

mmajunkie.com — After one of the worst referee blunders in recent MMA history - and then being told nothing could be done about it - Drew Dober is getting some redemption. Although initially announcing the controversial UFC Fight Night 62 result would stand, the Comissao Atletica Brasileira de MMA (CABMMA) - the Brazilian MMA Athletic Commission - today reversed course and overturned Silva's win and declared the fight a no-contest.

Really like what CABMMA did here in Dober-Silva. Hope other commissions will take notice and consider same amendment. mmajunkie.com/2015/03/shocke…

Brock Lesnar isn’t coming back, so MMA needs to learn to let him go

mmajunkie.com — So it turns out that Brock Lesnar isn't coming back. At least now we know. At least now we in the MMA world can stop talking about him, hopefully, and move on with our Brock-less lives, such as they are. This is a good thing, is my point, because, if I can be honest here?
Mar 26, 2015

Some thoughts on learning to let Brock Lesnar go. It was fun, but it's over now, and MMA needs to deal with that. mmajunkie.com/2015/03/brock-…

Why Rousey vs. Correia is the rare squash match that makes perfect sense

mmajunkie.com — Seems like oddsmakers didn't exactly torture themselves over Ronda Rousey 's next scheduled UFC women's bantamweight title defense. With the ink still wet on the bout agreement pitting Rousey against Bethe Correia at UFC 190, the people who make a living picking winners and losers have joined with the forces of common sense and declared, yeah, Rousey's probably got this.
Mar 23, 2015

Is Ronda Rousey vs. Bethe Correia a squash match? Yep. Does it also make a certain inescapable type of sense? Yep. mmajunkie.com/2015/03/why-ro…

Vitor Belfort says he’ll fight anyone - but only for full UFC middleweight title

mmajunkie.com — When a rib injury forced middleweight champion Chris Weidman out of his planned UFC 184 title defense against Vitor Belfort, many wondered if Belfort would remain on the card and fight for an interim title.

For UFC’s ‘other’ Irish fighters, spotlight is dimmer heading into UFC on FOX 14

mmajunkie.com — As Irish MMA continues to wade into unchartered territory, the rapid ascent and borderline omnipresence of Conor McGregor, has, perhaps, obscured the notable progression made by some of his compatriots, who are in action this weekend at UFC on FOX 14. McGregor's quick ascent is to be expected.

For champ Aldo, a challenger like McGregor is a gift from heaven - or possibly hell

mmajunkie.com — It's times like these you wonder how we managed for so long in this sport without a Conor McGregor. Maybe a better way of putting it is, you wonder how UFC featherweight champion Jose Aldo managed without him, because something tells me that when Aldo looked up and saw the Irishman vaulting over the cage following his second-round TKO of Dennis Siver in Sunday's UFC Fight Night 59 headliner, all he saw was a big bag of money headed his way.
Jan 19, 2015

Why was Jose Aldo smiling when Conor McGregor came at him bro? Maybe because all he saw was a big bag of money. mmajunkie.com/2015/01/for-ch…
