Anyway, Gastelum and Josh Sannan both want to win. That’s a ...
  • MMA, pro wrestling and proper arenas It started with an innocent joke. With my eyes straining, I misread the name “CM Punk” as “chipmunk.” When my eyes refocused, I realized it was another reference to a pro wrestling champion whose name I just learned because he’ll be accompanying Chael Sonnen to his next fight.

But the fighter formerly known as Jon Koppenhaver (he still answers to Jon and ...

  • ‘The Ultimate Fighter': Season 12, Episode 3: Tyson for tea Alex “Bruce Leeroy” Caceres is giddy after beating Jeff Lentz. He veers between complimenting Lentz on a good fight and pointing out all the ways he was vastly superior. Among the dubious claims: Lentz’s kicks just grazed his afro. Spencer Paige, to the camera: “I gotta give props to Jeff for not stabbing Bruce in the ...
