When you are on top of the MMA game, almost everyone just wants to take you down--- literally and figuratively. And today, it seems like everybody is raring for a shot at Conor McGregor, the current UFC featherweight champion and, arguably, the sport's biggest draw.
If he could get past the lightweight king Eddie Alvarez in their looming UFC 205 collision, he'll make himself an even bigger fish than he already is. It would validate his stature as the most sought after catch in the UFC pond.
Meanwhile, bantamweight champ Dominick Cruz, whether he's trying to lure McGregor to his bait or not, is making his intentions clear with some big words of his own. more >>

Something's gotta give and one team's winning streak was bound to end Sunday. Not too many in the league expected the Denver Broncos to bow down against the Falcons at Mile High--- perhaps, not even some of Atlanta fans.

On top of that, who wouldn't want to play alongside the greatest basketball player in the world today?

It was truly a night to remember for Michael Bisping - the fight, though, took place during the wee hours in Manchester. Not only was he able to successfully defend his middleweight title in UFC 204, but did it in front of the partisan crowd in his very own home soil.
Bisping was also able to break new ground by being the first in the UFC franchise's history to accumulate 20 wins. He was also the first MMA fighter from Britain to win a UFC championship.
