With Ronda Rousey stealing all the thunder in the sport of late, Dana White and company have wisely started the process of rebuilding the image of the UFC's male competitors -- especially after a spate of recent failed drug tests -- by putting together an outstanding card for the upcoming UFC 187 on Saturday, May 23, at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.
The card will feature two world title fights, with undisputed light heavyweight king Jon Jones meeting No. 1 contender Anthony Johnson in the five-round main event, and middleweight champion Chris Weidman facing former light heavyweight champion Vitor Belfort.

The NFL's franchise and transition player designations were announced today for the 2015 free agency signing period, with the Dallas Cowboys notably deciding to give the non-exclusive franchise tag to star wideout Dez Bryant. Equally interesting was the Detroit Lions' decision not to franchise star defensive lineman Ndamukong Suh, as he will now have the opportunity to test the free agent market.
Boxing fans cannot complain about the quality of matchups being offered thus far in 2015, and today, yet another outstanding card was announced, as featherweight world champion Jhonny Gonzalez (57-8, 48 KOs) will defend his 126-pound title against the very talented Gary Russell Jr. (25-1, 14 KOs) at the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas, on Saturday, March 28.
