    By Andy Samuelson · Dec. 28, 2008 · 7 a.m.

    Frank Mir didn’t have to say he was officially back Saturday night, his emotions inside the Octagon said it all. Moments after becoming the first man to ever stop the legendary Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira, the 29-year-old Las Vegas native buried his face inside his hat to fight back tears.

  • Unassuming champ ready for challenge

    By Andy Samuelson · Dec. 27, 2008 · 6:00 a.m.

    If Tuesday’s dress rehearsal offers any indication of how tonight’s Ultimate Fighting Championship’s light heavyweight title fight at UFC 92 will go, then the champ, Forrest Griffin, already finds himself a round behind on the scorecards.

  • Enough action for several cards

    By Jeff Haney · Dec. 26, 2008 · 2:00 a.m.

    Mixed martial arts fans surely would be satisfied with any of the three headlining fights on the card as a main event, so to have them all on the same show is an extra treat.

  • UFC’s best not burdened by holidays

    By Andy Samuelson · Dec. 17, 2008 · 2:00 a.m.

    ‘Tis the season … unless you’re a mixed martial artist who's been cooped up in the gym training for the last two months. “I never really liked the holidays anyway,” said a monotone-sounding Forrest Griffin, during a teleconference Tuesday when he was asked if it’s difficult to train during the holiday season.

UFC 174
Demetrious Johnson and Rory MacDonald shut out opponents

UFC 174 Demetrious "Mighty Mouse" Johnson slammed his hands down on his UFC flyweight championship belt. Somewhere else in Rogers Arena, Rory MacDonald surely looked on with envy. Johnson and MacDonald put on dominant performances in the UFC's first trip to Vancouver in three years. Johnson defended his title for the fourth time, not allowing Ali Bagautinov to win any of their five fast-paced rounds. That couldn't quite top MacDonald, who barely let Tyron Woodley touch him in an all-important welterweight co-main event. MacDonald hopes the performance leads him to an opportunity to claim space alongside Johnson in the UFC champion's club.
