Big news this week from the world of UFC and MMA and it actually has to do with legendary card carrier Brittney Palmer. You might have freaked when Palmer missed a summer of UFC Ring Girl duties, but fear not. She was, as we noted a month ago, working on her art and going to school. In an interview with Fitness Gurlz magazine, Palmer says under no circumstance is she finished with her UFC gig. Oh, and did we mention there are new pics? JUMP!

Frankly, it's like a train wreck -- if you can look away, or not look at all, you're better than us. That said, enjoy the gallery!
The UFC’s only official pre-fight show returns when Fight Day comes to you live from the George R. Brown Convention Center, the host of Saturday’s UFC Fan Expo.

It's a good day representative of hard work, sacrifice and commitment when you go down to the dealer to pick up your new Bentley Continental GT -- not that we would know about any of that. UFC champ Jon "Bones" Jones does, though. Bones called it one of the best days of his life. When you check out the specs on this bad boy, you'll know why. We've got them for you along with some pics of Bones' new ride. Pimp!
If you don't have anything going on tonight we suggest you tune into Versus for UFC and a heavyweight fight that'll feature the biggest height difference in UFC history. Chew on this: that short dude is Pat Barry (5-11, 243). He'll fight the mammoth Stefan Struve (6-11, 261). Things get started at 9 EST. We're trying to figure out what's more shocking, a 5-11 243-pounder or a dude that's 6-11. Tim Sylvia is 6-8. Anyway, find time after the college games get out of hand. Let's get rolling!
UFC 135's Fight Day comes to you live from the Pepsi Center in Denver, Colorado. Hosts Dave Farra and Megan Olivi will break down all of the main card action with expert panelists.

Also on set will be #1 Light Heavyweight contender in the world, Rashad Evans, who will face the winner of the night's main event at a future date for the Light Heavyweight Championship.

Joey Diehl kinda found us today on Twitter and of course it was in the best interest of Busted Coverage to get the scoop as to how this 22-year-old MMA fighter earned "Greatest MMA Cut In Fighting History." One thing led to another and Diehl was telling us how a "lil jump knee" opened him up and turned his face into a horror scene. In a matter of minutes, Joey submitted his opponent and became an instant hero. JUMP!
That isn't Photoshopped. Totally legit. Meet Joey Diehl, an up-and-coming MMA fighter repped by Suckerpunch Entertainment. Sherdog says this guy is 5-5, 125 lbs. and now the owner of what is considered the worst cut in MMA history. This is said to have occurred over the weekend and Diehl actually won his match via submission. (Still waiting on video of this mess.) Anyway, need a better look? JUMP!
In case you didn't realize via the ads running on Busted Coverage, UFC 134: Silva vs. Okami happens tomorrow night in Rio. Yep, Dana has expanded the brand into South America. Anyway, in honor of this big night we have 10 of the bloodiest, most busted faces in recent UFC memory. Clearly we won't be able to include every nasty, messed up face in this gallery, so if you have your own, feel free to leave a comment below. Check out the pictures after the JUMP! (Some very graphic. You've been warned.)
Earlier this week we were reading about how Dana White was ripping a bunch of idiot MMA bloggers because they thought he fired Ring Girl Brittney Palmer. Yeah, probably not the biggest thing to worry about as the stock market dropped 600 points, but it's what drives pageviews. White said something to the effect that Palmer was concentrating on her artwork right now. Come to find out, the guy was serious. Um, Palmer really is an artist who can go wrist bra & Ali in a matter of minutes. JUMP!
A few hours ago we told you how UFC fighter Dennis Hallman probably wrote his death wish with Dana White's operation for his banana boat stunt. Now we learn that Hillman has been in the hospital this week for a right elbow that's disgustingly infected. Dude actually dislocated that elbow last week and fought with the bad wing. Now he's shacked up and getting treated for this craziness. More - JUMP!
Dana White is still irate over Dennis Hallman's banana boat shorts during UFC 133 in Philly over the weekend. How mad is he? A ban on banana boats has been instituted. Said White, via Twitter after Hallman entered the cage: WTF!!!! Fighting in that will be illegal after tonight! Anyone want to grapple with hallman? And today it has been announced Dana has done exactly that. Details - JUMP!
The tipsters keep sending us famous athlete houses for sale so some of you must care about our latest series on the subject. Today we hear that Chuck "Iceman" Liddell is selling his San Luis Obispo pad for $1,200,000, which is less than what he paid in 2006. No word on where Chuck has moved his operations, but this house is empty and seems to be move-in ready. Photos & house details - JUMP!
The Internets are abuzz this morning after UFC 132 and the Dennis Siver-Matt Wiman fight for two reasons: (a.) Siver's face looked like a 1986 WWF cage match broke out on his forehead, and (b.) Dennis Siver won the fight via the judge scorecards. Oh, and did we mention Siver is Russian & gets the W on a holiday weekend? Get ready to see much more of the Russian Bloodbath, says CageWriter's Steve Cofield. More from the fight & full shot of Siver's mess - JUMP!
