Anthony Johnson has been indefinitely suspended from UFC. According to UFC President Dana White, Johnson’s return to the Octagon is anything but certain.

He’s not in a good position right now. He was at the biggest point of his career, where he was just on the cusp of making huge money, being involved in huge fights. I wouldn’t want to be him right now. He’s not in a good position. (An indefinite suspension) doesn’t mean he’s definitely going to fight here. Even if (the latest allegations) go his way. We’ll see what happens.

Johnson was hit with the suspension after news came to light of domestic violence allegations. In the current sports climate, UFC was quick to act and took him out of action for the time being. The UFC also released Thiago Silva, who had his own domestic violence rap sheet.

Johnson was released from UFC in 2012 following troubles with making weight.

The talented fighter moved up in weight outside of the UFC and posted a 6-0 record before the biggest organization in the sport came calling. UFC welcomed him back with a matchup against Phil Davis, a fight Johnson won by unanimous decision.

Johnson jumped in the rankings and would then take on Antonio Rogerio Nogueira. The bout lasted less than a minute. Following the win, it appeared Johnson was on the brink of becoming a title contender for Jon Jones’ crown.

White confirmed that prior to the suspension, Johnson’s next bout was set to be against top contender Alexander Gustafsson as a Fox headliner.

Now, all of the good he has done inside of the cage is on the back-burner. Everything is halted until the issues outside of the cage are resolved.

There is also a 2009 misdemeanor charge that Johnson faced in 2009. UFC was aware of the situation, and Fertitta spoke to ESPN.com about the current issues surrounding the light heavyweight:

We do have a zero-tolerance policy, but I think we looked at that situation and the guy had gone through the court system and he was placed on suspension. He has served whatever he had served and we were comfortable bringing him in at that time. Obviously, now in addition to these recent allegations being made, the fact there is a prior makes us a lot more concerned about it.

“You have to give people a fair f—–g shake,” said White. Johnson is getting his now, but only time will tell whether we see him back inside the cage as an active competitor. The organization is gathering all the facts to make its decision.

If UFC does indeed have a zero-tolerance policy, it may be difficult to justify bringing him back into the organization should anything else—no matter how small—come to light.

The dramatic circus that surrounds Georges St-Pierre, his absence from mixed martial arts and his potential return is well-warranted.

With one of the best resumes in combat history, GSP deserves every ounce of coverage and exposure his retired heart desires.

Not for nothing, but if the former UFC welterweight kingpin ever decided to come back to the promotion he called home for nine hard-fought years, it would set off a media frenzy similar to that of LeBron James returning to Cleveland (of course, on the MMA level).

In a recent appearance on Friday’s episode on Inside MMA on AXS, the 33-year-old superstar opened up to Ron Kruck about his future career plans.

Nobody knows for sure when or even if GSP plans to put his acting career aside, get back in the gym and again fend off the countless divisional hounds like he had done for so many years.

But assuming the Canadian is the super-athlete that we pegged him to be, drenched in competitive goo, it would seem likely that he would make a return to the Octagon if the circumstances were right.

That perfect scenario could be drawn from a superfight with Anderson Silva at catchweight or even a rematch with Johny Hendricks, assuming Rory MacDonald doesn’t quickly ascend the rankings and capture UFC gold.

The money would also have to be right for GSP.

But it seems like he’s enjoying his time off for now and will let us know when he regains the itch to compete.

The working relationship between Ultimate Fighting Championship and Invicta FC continues to blossom with the announcement that the all-women’s mixed martial arts promotion will air exclusively on UFC Fight Pass going forward.

Here’s what we know for sure about Ronda Rousey’s future in the Octagon: On Saturday she’ll take on Alexis Davis at UFC 175, she’ll win, and then she’ll take a vacation.

Given that she opened as an eye-popping 20-to-1 favorite over Davis, we’d be fools to think anything else about how their fight will go. Rousey will come out of her corner, tinker with a few of the new toys she’s been refining in her striking game and then find a way to finish things, probably on the ground, probably during the first five minutes.

As for every other single thing in her professional life? Well, that’s all a lot more difficult to predict.

Rousey has been going pretty hard since coming to the UFC in Feb. 2013. She’s grown into an industry unto herself, spearheading women’s MMA in a company and mainstream sporting landscape that had historically been dismissive of it. This will be her fourth title defense in 17 months and it’s not as though she’s lacking in other opportunities.

You can’t blame her for wanting to take some time off. The fact is, we thought she might be looking for a respite after beating Sara McMann in late Feb., but here she is, preparing to dispatch another overmatched opponent and retain her spot as queen of the Octagon.

The multimillion-dollar question lingering over Rousey’s career is, but for how long?

If we are to take her at he word, not even the champion herself has any idea what’s next.

“I’m taking it one fight at a time,” she told MMA Junkie’s John Morgan leading up to UFC 175. “Everything is changing so fast and so many things are coming up so quickly that I really can’t think more than one day at a time.”

Rousey says she wants to take part in the UFC’s gala end-of-the-year show, but an opponent for her there is still very much To Be Announced. Rumors that Gina Carano would come out of retirement for a superfight have cooled considerably, but women’s boxing camp Holly Holm is said to be on the verge of a UFC deal and erstwhile No. 1 contender Cat Zingano still hasn’t gotten her chance.

Of course, none of them is expected to have a realistic chance of beating Rousey.

The only woman who might is Cristiane “Cyborg” Justino, and she continues to be at odds with UFC ownership. Rousey had some particularly ugly things to say about Justino during a recent media lunch—proving that either they really do hate each other or Rousey’s secretly trying to entice her into the UFC—but each day that passes without a deal makes that fight start to feel more and more like a pipe dream.

Without Cyborg, the lack of competition may be hurting Rousey’s marketability. Her UFC 170 fight against McMann didn’t exactly light the box office on fire and it remains to be seen how many fans will shell out the money to watch her trounce another, even heavier underdog this weekend.

Meanwhile, a second, possibly more lucrative career is heating up. Rousey’s already filmed parts in The Expendables 3 and the big-screen adaptation of HBO’s Entourage series. With production ongoing on Fast & Furious 7 and a part in another big budget Warner Bros. vehicle in hand, people are publicly beginning to wonder if her Octagon days are numbered.

Without much serious competition on the horizon, it’s pretty easy to imagine that proposed December fight—especially if it comes against a high-profile patsy like Carano—could be her last, if it even happens at all.

For her part, Rousey’s not making any big promises about how long she’ll stick around.

“You never know how you’re going to feel after a fight,” she told Morgan. “The fights themselves really affect how you feel. If it’s a five-round war, I might not have as many rounds left in me. If it’s a quick finish, then maybe I’ll have some more. It depends on how those fights go.”

Such sentiments likely make UFC brass (and fans of women’s MMA in general) pretty nervous. Rousey has been hailed as perhaps the promotion’s biggest new star and losing her would be bad news for the fight company and health of the sport she helped build.

The UFC hasn’t really invested in any female fighters beyond Rousey. Its 135-pound women’s division has been a one-horse race since its inception. Yet with the recent addition of a women’s strawweight class and a signed deal to begin showing the all-female InvictaFC organization on its Internet streaming service, it doesn’t seem like the organization is just going to give up on women’s MMA, either.

The wildcard in all this, of course, is Rousey herself. She’s proved to be a savvy and driven businessperson, but being a fighter has consumed basically her entire life. She was a martial arts prodigy nearly from birth (her mom is a decorated judo player) and her innate intensity seems far better suited to a life in gyms and cages than long hours learning lines and hanging around movie sets.

Still, Rousey is smart, and smart people don’t stay in the fight game any longer than they absolutely must.

If there’s a better deal out there for her—and few big-money challenges left in the UFC—nobody will blame her for taking it.

The UFC has a lot riding on this Saturday’s pay-per-view event.

With Chris Weidman set to defend his middleweight title against Lyoto Machida and Ronda Rousey putting her women’s bantamweight championship on the line against Alexis Davis, UFC 175 figures to be the fight company’s biggest PPV of the year, at least so far.

Questions abound regarding this card. Does Weidman really deserve to be the 185-pound champion? Has Rousey given this training camp enough attention, as she’s been off making movies? Do either Machida or Davis stand a chance of taking the straps off two of the UFC’s next-generation stars?

Ordinarily, you’d have to wait for the event itself to find the answers. Not this time. Bleacher Report MMA lead writers Chad Dundas and Jonathan Snowden are here, they brought their far-eyes, and they’re ready to look into the future.

Here are their bold predictions for what will happen at UFC 175…
