Bellator Cuts Phil Baroni For Supporting 'War Machine'


Phil Baroni had been steadfast in his support of "War Machine" on social media, even though his old friend and protege is facing awful domestic violence charges in connection to an alleged attack on former girlfriend, Christy Mack. You can read all about that and much more right here. Baroni, meanwhile, was taking some time off after suffering a first round technical knockout loss to Karo Parisyan at Bellator 122. It marked the third consecutive defeat for "New York Bad Ass," who has dropped eight of his 10 most recent matches dating back to 2009. Fair play on behalf of Bellator or was Baroni already on his way out based on his recent professional (not social) struggles? Either way, it's crystal clear new Bellator boss, Scott Coker, ain't playing.

Pic: New War Machine Mugshot Following Arrest For Christy Mack Attack


This is what War Machine -- aka Jon Koppenhaver -- looked like when he was picked up by U.S. Marshals last Friday (Aug. 15, 2014) in Simi Valley, Calif., on charges of being a fugitive from justice. He's expected to appear before California Superior Court later today (Aug. 19, 2014), where a judge will decide when to ship him back to Las Vegas, Nevada, where he's expected to be re-arrested on assault charges stemming from a violent, late-night encounter with porn star Christy Mack. Stay tuned.

Pic: Mother Of God WTF Happened To Cung Le?!?


He's HUGE and will probably kill Michael Bisping in the main event of UFC Fight Night 48 if he lands clean on "The Count." Not bad for 42! See more at Le's Instagram account right here. Seriously, do you even lift, bro?

Pic: Chael Sonnen Takes Credit For Capturing War Machine


Who needs U.S. Marshals when you have American Gangsters? Former UFC middleweight Chael Sonnen takes credit for capturing War Machine, who was arrested on Friday (Aug. 15, 2014) in Simi Valley, Calif., for allegedly assaulting Christy Mack (full report here). Now that I think of it, Chael was in "The Golden State" recently for a certain grappling match. Hmmm...

UFC Gives Cathal Pendred $50k FOTN Bonus It Stripped From Mike King


So if you combine that with the $50,000 bonus Pendred garnered for his come-from-behind win at UFC Fight Night 46 last month in Dublin, Ireland, than you have a grand total of $100k -- and that's before his show/win purse. Not bad for a guy who failed to win The Ultimate Fighter, but a real shitty day for Mike King (because of this).

Mighty Mouse: It's About Time UFC 178 Got A 'Real' Main Event


Demetrious Johnson has just turned heel, taking a jab at the Jon Jones vs. Daniel Cormier light heavyweight title fight -- which got scrapped in favor of Johnson vs. Chris Cariaso -- when "Bones" got broken and shipped to UFC 182. Unfortunately, "Mighty Mouse" hasn't exactly saved the day when it comes to pay-per-view (PPV) buys but he's right about one thing, he keeps on winning.

Pic: Nick Diaz Mourns Death Of Robin Williams

#:( #hook #rip #tomuchmoos #happythoughts --He may be one of the toughest guys on the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) roster, but that doesn't mean Nick Diaz (via Instagram) doesn't have a soft side, too. The UFC 183 headliner -- who battles Anderson Silva over Super Bowl Weekend -- is thinking "happy thoughts" after learning that longtime Hollywood funnyman Robin Williams passed away on Monday (Aug. 11, 2014) from an apparent suicide.

***FOR LATEST NEWS UPDATES TO THIS STILL-DEVELOPING STORY WITH INJURY PHOTOS AND MORE CLICK HERE*** War Machine may be wanted by police in connection with his alleged assault against ex-girlfriend Christy Mack (details), as well as another unnamed third party, but that hasn't stopped him from professing his undying love on social media.

Chris Weidman Posts Vitor Belfort Side-By-Side Pic To Compare TRT And TNT


Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) middleweight kingpin Chris Weidman is not interested in taking the high road -- clearly -- since he's making horse jokes and posting before and after pics of Vitor Belfort on Instagram. But it's "The Phenom" who could have the last laugh this December at UFC 181, assuming his "frail" body holds up until then.
