Tom Heffernan speaks to Joanne Calderwood ahead of her bout with Valerie Letourneau

Joanne Calderwood believes her UFC Fight Night89 bout with Valerie Letourneau will be “absolute war”. The pair will meet at the TD Place Arena in Ottawa , Canada on June 18th in what has all the makings of an epic battle between two of the UFC’s top female fighters. Scottish standout Calderwood has been out of action since her Fight of The Night victory in Glasgow last July due to injury,

Tom Heffernan’s UFC200 fantasy fight card

UFC200 will take place on July 9th at the brand new 20,000 capacity T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada and it is certain to be the biggest show in the promotions history. The UFC has come a long way since it’s humble beginnings and with MMA officially the fastest growing sport in the world, Dana White and his match-makers will be eager to capitalise on the wealth of superstars they

Georges St. Pierre battles Captain America (spoiler alert!)

Legendary welterweight and former Champion Georges St. Pierre stars as Batroc the Leaper in the hit Marvel movie Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Batroc the Leaper isn’t a name that most moviegoers and Marvel movie fans would recognize. In the Marvel comics, Batroc is a French kickboxing villain skilled at hand to hand combat. A perfect role for an MMA fighter to take on. Unlike many professional fighters who stumble

UFC 158: Nick Diaz doesn’t stand a chance against Georges St Pierre

Nick Diaz will step in to the cage at UFC 158 on March 16 as the first of three UFC title challengers in 2013 who will be coming off a loss, and yet find themselves fighting for gold. Whether Nick Diaz, Chael Sonnen, or Frankie Edgar have earned legitimate arguments for their status in their respective weight classes, at the end of the day, all that matters is the fight.

Georges St Pierre: What’s in Store?

Georges St. Pierre (GSP) has fought his way back from a detrimental injury to regain his welterweight title after a convincing 5th round victory over former interim belt holder Carlos Condit. Before the sweat had dried from that defeat, Dana White was tossing around thoughts of a super fight between GSP and Anderson “The Spider” Silva. There are several opponents that would be a fair match up for GSP. Who

Dana White: Nick Diaz is next for Georges St Pierre

“He doesn’t ask for things much,” Dana said at the UFC on FOX pre-fight presser on Thursday. “So if he wants to fight Nick Diaz, and Diaz wants to fight him, then that’s the fight we’ll make.” This fight will be controversial when it is written in stone for completely different reasons than when it was booked before GSP became injured and Condit won the interim belt in a controversial

Women will be in the UFC, Deal with it!

New York City- a place where eight million people of different races, creed and orientations share a city only 300 sq. miles large.  I grew up there and because of that, I’m proud to say that I’m a bit of a social liberalist. I believe that our views change throughout history because we grow as a society.  We have to accept those changes or else become relics of our own

Tristar head trainer Firas Zahabi: “Nick Diaz is No. 1 Contender at 170”

There has been a lot of speculation on the potential “super fight” between current UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva and current UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre. This might be the case, but the big question for me is, who is the current number one contender in the welterweight division? Tristar head trainer Firas Zahabi (GSP’s trainer) thinks that Nick Diaz is still the number one contender upon his return. Johny

Is Anderson Silva or Johny Hendricks next for GSP?

Last night GSP successfully defended his title for the first time in a while against Carlos Condit at UFC 154. Of course it wasn’t exactly an easy accomplishment for the champ since he accrued more damage in this fight than he has become accustomed to in his recent title defenses. “I found the fire back, I had a lot of fun,” said GSP at the post fight presser. “This time in the
