Ken Shamrock was at this past weekend's UFC Fan Expo, and someone decided to put a camera and microphone in front of him to see what would happen. Shamrock called out several fighters, none of who have been relevant in the sport for several years. He also called out his brother, Frank, and said he wants to beat some respect into him. Shamrock hasn't been in the WWE for almost 10 years, but he hasn't forgotten how to cut a good promo. »»

The UFC light heavyweight division has been described as the most competitive division in all of mixed martial arts. There have been ten total champions of the division, beginning with Frank Shamrock and rolling its way to the current champion Lyoto Machida. Machida is set to face Mauricio “Shogun" Rua at UFC 104 this coming Sat. in Las Vegas, Nevada. Machida gained the light heavyweight hardware at UFC 98 this past summer, destroying Rashad Evans and keeping his undefeated record intact. Rua enters the fight a steep underdog (+300 at Sportsbook.com), and many believe him undeserving of this title shot. However, the PRIDE days of “Shogun" still dwell in the minds of mixed martial arts fans and are reason to believe he could put up a fight. Although this is not one of the most anticipated fights in UFC history, it is a fight featuring the light heavyweight champion and one of the most infamous strikers in PRIDE history. In honor of the light heavyweight championship headlining this weekend's card, we look back at some of the biggest names involved in the biggest events in UFC light heavyweight history with the top ten UFC light heavyweight championship fights. »»

The Ultimate Fighting Championship's marketing machine, which is second to none in the mixed martial arts industry, is always pushing the next high profile matchup as the “biggest fight ever." With the impending blockbuster of an event in UFC 100 slated to kickoff on July 11 from Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas, Nevada it is important to examine the how we arrived at this historic event and past fights that have been landmarks leading us up to UFC 100 and beyond. Quality fights make quality events, but the most important fights in the history of the UFC are not necessarily the most exciting nor do they all have highlight reel finishes. What they do all have in common is a broad importance to the current state of the UFC and the sport of MMA in general. They are significant historical milestones that have marked the rise of the UFC, fighters coming back from retirement, intense rivalries, and pay-per-view blockbusters. This list has a little bit of everything. Without further ado, these are the ten biggest fights in the history of the UFC in chronological order. »»
Chuck Liddell has become the latest MMA legend whose time in the sports has seemingly expired. The evolution of the sports, along with the geriatric wear and tear have left him in the dust. No MMA fan wants to see a legend in the sports risk self-destruction by fighting long past his prime. Neither do the fans want to see the legend step into the ring or the cage as a shell of his former self, like the bloated Elvis Presley without a shred of his former charisma and virility in his embarrassing series of performance during the 1970s. Concern for the physical well-being and wholesomeness of legacy thus dictates that fighters, like any other professional athletes, retire after their competitive capacity hits the ceiling. In Liddell's case, no one seems more adamant about the retirement than one of his best friends, Dana White. »»

The beautiful thing about this upset is it did what most MMA purists and people who take MMA seriously wanted to see happen at one point: it exposed Kimbo’s lack of experience in MMA. While this seems redundant because it was only Kimbo’s fourth MMA fight, the majority of people who know of Kimbo add his Youtube fights with his MMA fights thus projecting the invincible myth that was Kimbo until Saturday night. »»
