– Hulking heavyweight Alistair Overeem destroyed a completely outmatched opponent last weekend and plans on destroying an equally outmatched opponent this weekend.

– We demonstrated the difference between a ridiculously unnecessary sucker punch and a completely understandable one.

– The upstart Bellator MMA league is returning next April — with a massive television deal.

– We took a look at five MMA fights that happened too early.

– The UFC booked high-profile rematches between Nate Diaz and Gray Maynard, and Jon Fitch vs. Thiago Alves.

– We’re sad to report that UFC light-heavyweight champion Lyoto Machida drinks his own pee. Nevertheless, he’ll be kicking Mauricio “Shogun” Rua’s ass tonight at UFC 104 in Los Angeles. Check out our analysis of the card here, and swing by at 10 p.m. ET / 7 p.m. PT for our thrilling liveblog of the pay-per-view broadcast.
