What UFC 360 Magazine Fails To Do For Their Prospective Fighters
Upon the face of the current “UFC 360? issue stands a crossed-armed, surprisingly buff, former Camp Rock serenader Nick Jonas. The 22 year old teen sensation must have turned UFC fans heads when they realized it was him and not a established UFC fighter photographed for their cover. The reason for his feature in the magazine is his participation in the new MMA series, ‘The Kingdom’,
a drama surrounded around colourful and athletic characters set in the back drop of a MMA gym.
Cris Cyborg tried hiding ankle injury to avoid puling out of Invicta 10
Anybody who has seen Cristiane Justino fight live or on television knows one thing: from the moment the referee gives the green light, "Cyborg" is a full-throttle fighter who never lets off the gas.

At the time, Hamilton was little more than an athletic big man who had only recently begun to dabble in mixed martial arts. His professional debut was still nearly three years away. That night, as he sat next to his wife, Hamilton allowed himself to dream of what it might be like to punch the clock alongside a St. Pierre or Liddell.

The threat of a looming weight cut has ruined many a holiday feast for many a fighter, but one small group thinks it’s figured out something important about diet and lifestyle, and gorging on turkey and heavy gravy is no longer even a question.
ONE FC champ Bibiano Fernandes: 'The rankings don't matter to me'
Traditionally, the goal for MMA fighters is to prove they’re the best. ONE FC featherweight champion Bibiano Fernandes doesn’t care about that.
Fernandes (16-3) takes great joy from being a professional fighter, but said he’s not concerned with proving to the world that he’s No. 1. What he is concerned with, though, is winning to support his family.
