11:55 AM ET 01.27 | UFC featherweight Cole Miller has won three of his last four fights, and he has been busy calling out his fellow fighters after the recent wins. Miller has specifically called out Donald Cerrone and Conor McGregor in his most recent victories, but some people don't believe Miller deserves those fights. There are fans of mixed martial arts who say that Miller is simply a "gatekeeper" and not a man who can reach the elite level in the sport, but Miller is embracing the role and is ready to prove everyone wrong.

02:41 PM ET 01.26 | In the main event of UFC on FOX 10, former UFC champion Benson Henderson came away with the split-decision victory over Josh Thomson. However, as is usually the case with Henderson fights, the decision was controversial and many believe that Thomson should have won the bout. Thomson, who suffered a right hand injury in the second round, was clearly frustrated with the decision and wasn't hiding his emotions after the fight. The emotional Thomson also hinted that this could be the end of the road for his mixed martial arts career. Of course, Thomson is coming off of two straight camps and a disappointing loss, so he will likely just need some time away to get his head right before returning to the octagon.

03:13 PM ET 01.25 | UFC and Strikeforce veteran Keith Jardine was one of the most intimidating fighters in mixed martial arts, thanks to his uncanny resemblance to Techno Viking, and you certainly wouldn't want him after you if you were an untrained citizen on the streets. Unfortunately for 41-year-old Richard J. Davenport, he learned that the hard way. Jardine was sitting at his computer in his Albuquerque, N.M., home, when he looked outside and watched a man steal the mail from his mailbox. Jardine immediately chased down the man, before dragging him out of his car and waiting for police to arrive.
