Video: This One-Punch Walk-Off Slow-Motion Falling-Tree Street-Fight Easy-Listening Knockout Is FAAAAABULOUS!!

(Props: MiddleEasy) Yeah, that's a lot of adjectives for a fight that lasts two seconds. But hey, watch the video yourself and see if we're lying to you. A guy gets dummied up with a single punch then remains on his feet for an impressive length of time before going full sequoia, after which the non-combatant in the striped t-shirt falls out like he's judging a drag show. The instant replay is soundtracked by Enya. If you don't enjoy this sort of thing, fighting's just not in your DNA, honey.

Nick Diaz Re-Signs With UFC (!), Anderson Silva Fight Possible for February 2015 (!!!)

(Your father would be so proud of you right now, Nick. / Photo via @danawhite) The bad boy is back, baby. The UFC announced this evening that welterweight star Nick Diaz has signed a three-fight contract extension, and will tentatively return to action in early 2015, against an opponent to be named later. (Probably not Joe Riggs.) Diaz has been "retired" since his decision loss to Georges St. Pierre in their title fight at UFC 158 in March 2013. Since then, the Mayor of Stockton™ has popped up here and there to threaten folks with an ass-whoopin', but refused to return to the UFC unless it was for a title fight. Luckily, a 16-month vacation has changed his opinion. Sort of. Here's what Diaz said to UFC.com about his current goals and what he's been up to lately: "I've been doing a whole lot of not getting punched around-type stuff," Diaz said Thursday afternoon at UFC headquarters. "I've been staying in shape pretty good, doing a lot of running. It's been a good experience having this much time off." The target for Diaz and the UFC is to get him back in the cage early next year, but the confident 30-year-old fighter said he'd be ready to fight tomorrow. "Next year I guess, whatever though. I can fight tomorrow; tonight," he said. "You have to do what you have to do. ... [I came today] to sort things out with Dana White and Lorenzo [Fertitta].

Paulo Thiago vs. Joe Riggs Booked for UFC Fight Night 51 — Yes, *That* Joe Riggs. Seriously.

(Photo via Dave Mandel/Sherdog.com) Brazilian welterweight Paulo Thiago was slated to face Mike "Biggie" Rhodes in a "win or get fired" fight at UFC Fight Night 51: Bigfoot vs. Arlovski (September 13th; Brasilia, Brazil), but Rhodes has withdrawn from the fight due to injury. Coming in to replace Rhodes against Thiago is...Joe Riggs? Really? UFC officials confirmed the unexpected booking after an initial report from Combate. Riggs is on a six-fight win streak, most recently out-pointing Mike Bronzoulis at Bellator 106 in November to win the first (and last) season of Fight Master. Riggs hasn't competed in the Octagon since a 4-4 UFC stint way back in 2004-2006, which ended with a quick 'n' gnarly knockout loss to Diego Sanchez at UFC Fight Night 7. (This is the only theory that makes sense.)

#ThrowbackThursday: 25 Rare and Classic UFC Photos From the ’90s

(Marco Ruas and Paul Varelans: When men were men, knuckles were bare, and wearing a singlet was totally acceptable.) As thrilling as the UFC can be in the 21st century — with its well-rounded, well-conditioned fighters and deep talent pools — there's something special about the Wild West days of the 1990s. Back then, the UFC featured a motley crew of martial artists of varying skill levels, some of whom didn't really look like professional athletes. This was the era of single-night tournaments, non-existent weight classes, and burping into microphones. It's hard not to miss those days. Today we pay tribute to the old-school with some of our favorite rare and classic UFC photos from the '90s. Check 'em out in the gallery after the jump, and if we've left out any of your favorites, let us know in the comments section or on twitter.

Good Things From Many In 2014 So Far, Says Dana White

For UFC president Dana White, 2014 has been a year of impact performances so far. White was recently asked during his weekly UFC Download interview what fighter has impressed him the most to date. And while the boss was unable to pinpoint on just one person, he explained that’s a good thing. “It’s hard to […]

Watch This ‘Black Fedor’ Daniel Cormier Highlight Video and Get Excited

(We would have also accepted "Bro Cop.") With Jon Jones vs. Daniel Cormier now booked as the UFC 178 main event, one question remains: Are you ready to come to daddy? (If that quote isn't on the official poster, it'll be a missed opportunity, marketing-wise.) We just saw this highlight reel from the very talented video-maker Muzone, and we felt obligated to share it. By the way, Jones has opened as a modest -170 betting favorite against Cormier, who's currently at +145. Where's your money going?

Alexander Gustafsson Suffers Knee Injury, Jon Jones vs. Daniel Cormier Set for New UFC 178 Main Event

(And here we have Daniel Cormier tossing around a grown man like a child.) Due to a meniscus tear suffered in training this week, UFC light-heavyweight contender Alexander Gustafsson has pulled out of his title rematch with Jon Jones, which was scheduled to headline UFC 178 (September 27th, Las Vegas). The UFC confirmed the bad news this evening, but luckily the promotion has a replacement already loaded up — and it's the fight that Jones wanted all along. Coming in to replace Gustafsson will be undefeated ex-heavyweight Daniel Cormier, who most recently choked out Dan Henderson in May during his second appearance at 205 pounds, then took the mic and executed one of the greatest call-outs since Luther clinked his bottles together in The Warriors. I mean, really, it was badass. Just watch it: Cormier was slated to undergo knee surgery this month to repair an LCL injury that he suffered in the Henderson fight, but he's decided to delay it, and claims that he's "good to go." As for Jones, he's coming off his dominant decision win against Glover Teixeira at UFC 172 in April, and has been hard at work perfecting his new heel persona.

Chael Sonnen: Future NSAC Advisor, and Other Lowlights From Today’s NSAC Hearing

("I'd like to present the commission with exhibit A, and remind them that they are standing in the presence of greatness." Photo via Getty.) At this point, I'm convinced that Chael Sonnen could literally crawl through a river of shit and come out clean on the other side. His ability to put on a fancy suit and speak in slightly nuanced platitudes without the necessity of a translator has apparently cast a spell over MMA fans, fighters, promoters, and commissioners, from which they will never wake up. Case in point, at today's NSAC hearing -- you know, the one where Vitor Belfort was granted a fight license because whatevs -- Sonnen was handed down his punishment for failing two random drug tests in a row prior to UFC 175. After thankfully opting against a defense (outside of whatever this was) for his drug test failures, Sonnen was raked over the coals by the commission for "trying to flat out cheat the system." "You don't get to stop one prohibited drug and start using five prohibited drugs," said the Assistant AG of the Nevada State Athletic Commission, "You've gotten to be kidding me that you're sticking a needle in you with EPO and HGH and didn't know it was prohibited." Surely, a swift punishment was just moments away. LOL NOPE. Despite facing a potential lifetime ban from MMA and fines totaling upwards of $250,000, the NSAC opted to slap Sonnen with a (completely meaningless now that he's retired) two year suspension and a fine totaling 0.00 dollars. Then they offered him a f*cking job. Ahh, sweet justice!

Here We Go! Weidman-Belfort On Deck For December

Vitor Belfort will get his chance at becoming the UFC middleweight champion this December – if he abides by the Nevada Athletic Commission. UFC officials announced following a hearing by the NAC that Belfort will challenge Chris Weidman for the belt on December 6 at UFC 181. The bout will main event the card from […]

Vitor Belfort Breezes Through NSAC Licensing Hearing, Will Face Chris Weidman at UFC 181 in Las Vegas

(Yes, it was broadcast on Fight Pass. No, Rogan and Goldie weren't calling the action, although that would have been amazing. / Screencap via UFC Fight Pass on Twitter) In retrospect, we should have known better to expect the Nevada State Athletic Commission to crack down on Vitor Belfort. Too much money was on the line. Belfort appeared at an NSAC licensing hearing today, in the wake of his positive test for elevated testosterone in February. It was the second time that Belfort has failed a drug test in Nevada, following a steroid bust in 2006. And yet, Belfort cruised through the proceedings, walking away with a conditional license that would keep him sidelined until December and require him to undergo random blood and urine testing at his own expense. The commission's decision to re-license Belfort was unanimous. Directly after Belfort's license was secure, the UFC announced that the Brazilian veteran would fight Chris Weidman in a middleweight title fight at UFC 181, December 6th in Las Vegas. Belfort was humble and cooperative during today's hearing, throwing himself at the mercy of the commission, but his version of events were never challenged. Here's an excerpt from MMAJunkie's report that suggests how toothless the NSAC's hearing was:

BTW, The Guy With the Coolest Nickname in MMA is Returning to Competition at Bellator 123

(Photo via Sherdog.)  Truly great fighter nicknames are hard to come by in MMA. If they aren't blatant attempts to sound intimidating using some well-worn cliche like "The Assassin" or "The Hitman", they're alliteration or pun-focused atrocities like "The Muscle Shark" Sherk or "Twinkle Toes" Trigg. I swear to God, if one more fighter calls themselves "The Pitbull", I am going to walk into the nearest MMA gym with a fully loaded AK-47 and just start spraying bullets. Worst of all, the nicknames many MMA fighters choose often fail to fit their personalities/fighting styles. Bob Sapp is not a "Beast." Likewise, TUF 19 winner Corey Anderson does not beast 25/8, because the constraints of time prevent him from doing so. Justin McCully may be illiterate, but he is definitely not "The Nsane1." And so on, and so forth. But in the late aughts, there was one MMA fighter who rose to prominence in the UFC thanks largely to his inventive and more importantly appropriate nickname: Tamdan "The Barn Cat" McCrory. What is a barn cat, exactly? Well, I'm glad you asked...

Today in Trolling: Josh Thomson Says Larger Fighters Are ‘One Dimensional’, ‘Not Mixed Martial Artists’

(Awww...who could stay mad at that face? / Photo via joshpunkthomson) This Saturday, lightweight veteran Josh Thomson leads off the UFC on FOX 12: Lawler vs. Brown broadcast with a fight against Bobby Green, and naturally, "The Punk" decided to talk a little trash in the media to build some heat. The problem is, his insults weren't directed at Green, or anybody else in his weight class. Instead, Thomson used a Fox Sports interview as a platform to bury the UFC's three heaviest divisions. Basically, Thomson was arguing that it's harder to come by a finish at 155 pounds or below (which is true), because the fighters are much more talented and well-rounded (which is debatable). And sure, maybe it could have come out better: "You hit 185, 205, and heavyweight, those guys are always just good at like one thing, two things, but they're not great all the way around. There's ways to finish them. So if you're a well-rounded athlete, you can finish those guys. You can find ways to finish those guys. "With 55-pounders and below, good luck, man. Everybody's good all around — they're good wrestlers, they're good jiu-jitsu guys, they're good standup guys, they're game to throw down and they're always in shape. 170 is kind of like the limbo — like there's some well-rounded guys in there... "You start getting in the 185's, 205, heavyweight, they start being one-dimensional, two-dimensional fighters. They're not mixed martial artists. They're not as good as the 55-pounders and below. They're just not. To me that's just a fact.
