Alistair Overeem on injuring Jon Jones in sparring: ‘I feel terrible’
Even before Alistair Overeem was knocked out (technically) by Ben Rothwell at UFC Fight Night 50 at Foxwoods, there was a dark cloud hovering over him for taking out a valuable teammate during training camp.

Thiago Silva dropped by UFC again after new video emergesLess than 10 days ago, UFC president Dana White said the reason he reinstated Thiago Silva (pictured) after firing him seven months prior for allegedly assaulting his wife with a gun was because the charges were dropped and he knew “a lot more of the story and what went on” than the general public. Well, apparently White didn’t know everything. Nor did he see or hear everything. The UFC has once again terminated Silva’s contract after discovering additional information involving the incident with his wife. “Thiago Silva was released from his UFC contract on Feb. 7 due to his arrest by police in South Florida,” the UFC expressed in a statement. “The charges against Silva were dropped by the Broward County District Attorney’s office and Silva was re-signed to the UFC earlier this month.

Wanderlei Silva rips UFC in retirement announcement videoOn Friday, MMA icon Wanderlei Silva (pictured) unceremoniously announced his retirement from fighting via a YouTube video.

After today, Wanderlei Silva will not fight again,” Silva stated. “My career is over. Because I don’t have a stage to perform, where the athletes get the proper respect.
