So much for that.
Here we go.
We haven’t seen Rousey fight since December of 2016.
UFC 217 was extraordinary, and it proved something about the future of the industry.
The mega-fight between Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather might be getting closer, but which sport needs this crossover more? Boxing, and it’s not close.
Since 2009, the Women’s MMA Press Committee has voted on the best in—you guessed it—women’s MMA. So, who were the best of the best in 2016?
If you were for Conor McGregor receiving a shot at the Lightweight title but against GSP battling Bisping for the Middleweight belt, please think again.
Don’t fall into the narrative of judging a fighter on the last couple fights of their career. This goes for Anderson Silva and Holly Holm following UFC 208.
2016 was the year of Conor McGregor, and you can bet he’ll make sure it’s as much in 2017. But charging fans to watch a meaningless interview? Come on.
After successive knockout losses, should we view Ronda Rousey differently? Could she be labeled a pretender, or was she still a worthy champion?
Plenty love to see successful people fall. But despite succumbing to another defeat, Ronda Rousey has nothing to be embarrassed about. She’s done plenty.
UFC 207 capped off an excellent year of MMA action. With Garbrandt and Nunes stealing the show, we look back at the event’s winners and losers.

March 24, 2007—Dominick Cruz debuts. But just as his legacy begins to stand on its own, his knee falls apart. At 207, he has a chance to cement said legacy.
Win, lose or draw Friday night, too many people seem to forget how important Ronda Rousey has been to MMA in such a short time.
Normally all eyes are on the champion. This hasn’t been the case for Amanda Nunes heading into UFC 207, but this champ should not be overlooked.
