Women's bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey (via UFC), who plays "Luna" alongside Sylvester Stallone and Jason Statham in the action-thriller Expendables 3, dazzles on her new character poster for the August 15, 2014 release (watch the official trailer here). In the meantime, "Rowdy" will be riding the pine until the end of the year to heal up a couple of injuries, while the rest of the 135-pound division sorts itself out.

Arnold

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) featherweight attraction, Conor McGregor, is getting some love from 80's action hero Arnold Schwarzenegger, who sent some digital love for his "Notorious" win over Diego Brandao last Saturday (July 19, 2014) in Dublin, Ireland (watch the replay here). I'm sure Ah-nuld wasn't hunched over his computer watching UFC Fight Night 46 on Fight Pass last weekend, but still, it's a nice rub from one of Hollywood's aging icon. See you at da pahty, Riktah.

Kickboxing sensation and part-time mixed martial arts (MMA) fighter Tyrone Spong (via Esther Lin) crashed the UFC Fight Night 46 post-fight press conference (watch it) last Saturday (July 19, 2014) asking UFC President Dana White to give him a contract for one fight, just so he can compete in Dublin, Ireland, a sentiment shared by a lot of fighters after hearing the live crowd blow the roof off the O2 Arena (full results here). Unfortunately, Spong is under contract to World Series of Fighting (WSOF), competes for GLORY, and still has an injured leg. But the thought of him throwing light heavyweight heat inside the Octagon...

PRIDE Fighting Championship did not condone the use of performance-enhancing drugs (PEDs) or drugs of abuse; however, it was willing to make an exception for any substance derived from steroids, according to longtime mixed martial arts (MMA) veteran Enson Inoue. "Yamato Damashi" has been posting pics of his old PRIDE contracts, with specific language creating a steroid loophole, along with a series of videos at his Facebook page right here. An interesting look at how things operated in Japan, especially as some of its former stars continue to run afoul of stateside athletic commissions. Click here for a larger version of this pic.

Pic: Dana White Reacts To 'Sickest UFC Weigh In Done In 13 Years' From Dublin

Dana

Friday's UFC Fight Night 46 weigh in event from Dublin, Ireland, was so bananas, it may be the "sickest" one promotion president Dana White has done in the last 13 years, according to his official Twitter account. The credit goes to the Irish fans in attendance, who bellowed and boomed every time one of the local boys tipped the scale, then completely lost their shit when Conor McGregor had to be separated from main event nemesis Diego Brandao (see it here). For full results and video of today's Dublin weigh ins click here and for "McGregor vs. Brandao" live results and play-by-play click here.

What a difference a day makes, eh? Well, in the case of UFC Fight Night 45's Joe Proctor, not much, but any progress is better than OMG WHAT IS THIS THING?!?!?!?! Proctor tweets, "Day 2 off my hematoma. Swelling went down a lot but face is still oddly shaped." Uh, yeah. Just a little. To watch Joe Proctor vs. Justin Salas full fight video highlights from last night click here.

Duke

"I said Leslie Smith had a brick head and could take a lot of punishment," said Jessamyn Duke on her official Instagram account. "Karma," is what "The Gun" is calling it following her technical knockout defeat to "The Peacemaker" at UFC Fight Night 45 last night (July 16, 2014) on FOX Sports 1 (full results here). The loss drops Duke to 1-2 under the ZUFFA umbrella since graduating from The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 18 last November and she'll likely need a strong showing her next time out to keep her place on the 135-pound roster. Judging by this X-ray of her mangled mitt, it could be awhile.

UH ... Looks like Joe Proctor is doing his best Hasim Rahman impersonation tonight at UFC Fight Night 45, sporting a tennis ball-sized hematoma on his left sideburn. Justin Salas punched him there, and for whatever reason, it decided to grow. He's okay, though, according to two ringside doctors who played with it between rounds. He won, too. Photo via @Davei_Boi
