UFC Established a List of its Greatest Fighters Of All Time

As determined by a panel of experts, journalists, analysts, commentators and us, the fans! The UFC Greatest Fighters Of All Time were revealed.

These are the fighters who have battled inside the octagon from UFC 1 up to UFC 200.

Last May, during the countdown to UFC 200, UFC asked people’s say using a poll to know who they think should be picked.

It would be pretty much impossible that everyone agrees with the list. So people, what changes would you make to the rankings?

Results of UFC 200: Miesha Tate vs Amanda Nunes

Biggest fight on the planet. The historic night in MMA world finally has happened.

Miesha Tate was not able to hold the Women’s Bantamweight title for long. Amanda Nunes beat her by RNC submission. In this method she defeated Holly Holm.

Julianna Pena and Cat Zingano however were very likeable to watch. Johny Hendricks was somewhat struggling. Another loss was added to his record. What you guys think is next to him?

Cain Velasquez is back. He looked hungry beating someone inside the cage again. He was humbled and checked on Travis Brown after he was left on the mat. The Interim Featherweight belt was wrapped around Jose Aldo’s waist defeating Frankie Edgar with blood on  his face.

Brock Lesnar’s ground and pound was nice. Mark Hunt did not knock him out like every everyone thought.

Emotional Jon Jones Addressed His Stripped Of Fighting In UFC 200 And Failed Drug Test

The former light heavyweight champion looked okay when he walked inside the room, but became very emotional after few words and walked out at one point.

He has no idea what he could have tested positive for. He couldn’t pronounce it and never heard of it. The B sample will be tested today according to Jon Jones and that he would never take something that would enhance him in anyway. It was his manager, Malki Kawa, who answered next questions from the media.

Jon Jones was asked what he would tell Daniel Cormier. He starts to cry as he says, “I haven’t had an opportunity to talk to DC. I just want to tell him that I’m sorry. I know this fight mean a lot to him”

“I believe that something good will come from this but it’s hard to see it. I’m sorry that I’m crying guys”, Jones add when asked to explain how he feeling and how it hurts.

Seeing Jon Jones actually cry on the stream during the interview is heartbreaking. It’s really hard to be a JBJ fan right now.

His probation officer also said that all these things Jon Jones is going through right now has no impact on his probation. Jones is serving 18 months of probation after pleading guilty to hit-and-run in April 2015.

Jones said he would come back if he has to sit out due to a 2 year suspension.

Watch the full presser here.

Jon Bones Jones Is Out Of UFC 200

The Interim Light Heavyweight Champion failed another drug test resulting to being pulled out from this weekend’s UFC 200. Brock Lesnar vs. Mark Hunt is the new main event.

Jon Jones is a tremendous talent who is being considered by MMA world as one of the greatest already. But the things he have been into tell it is more of a waste of talent. His previous suspensions were due to cocaine and hit and run incidents. Fans gave the fighter one more chance. They were pumped for his return last April. The athlete even thank the people via his posts on social media for the support and that he would not disappoint the ones who believed in him. The most talked about and much awaited second match with Daniel Cormier is not going to happen. Tomorrow Jon Jones will give his statement about the issue.

The substance he failed on and flagged by USADA as potential violation have not revealed by UFC yet.

The Countdown to UFC 200 Is On! 4 Days Till War!

4 more sleep till UFC 200! The card that MMA world is impatiently waiting for. It easily becomes the Fight Card of All Time for me.

Meanwhile, I have these warriors winning on Sunday! Jon Jones (45 secs round 1 by tech submission standing guillotine choke), Mark Hunt (round 1 by TKO), Miesha Tate (round 5 by submission RNC) , Frankie Edgar (round 3 by UD), Cain Velasquez (round 2 by KO), Julianna Pena (round 3 by submission guillotine choke), Johnny Hendricks (round 3 by SD), TJ Dillashaw (round 1 by KO), Enrique Marin (round 2 by KO), Joe Lauzon (round 3 by submission armbar), Gegard Mousasi (round 3 UD) and Jim Miller (round 1 by submission kneebar).

Jon ‘Bones’ Jones made his UFC comeback last April at UFC 197. The drug and road incident removed the world no. 1 from UFC rankings. Daniel Cormier disappointed the fans by pulling out of the fight last minute. Ovince St Preux stepped up instead. The fight was not as exciting as his last fights but still he was announced as that LHW Interim Champion of the world. Before April ends, UFC gave JBJ vs DC as the main event for UFC 200.

Miesha ‘Cupcake’ Tate shocked the world when she choked Holly ‘The Preacher’s Daughter’ Holm out. The Woman’s Bantamweight title finally was wrapped around her waist by Dana White last March. She defeated the one who put 1 in Ronda Rousey’s loss record whom she never won 2 fights with. Here at UFC 200, she will defend her belt against Amanda Nunes.

Mark Hunt’s walkoff KO on Frank Mir, Jose Aldo was put to sleep by Conor McGregor, Frankie Edgar beating Chad Mendes, Cain Velasquez long overdue return to the octagon after Fabricio Werdum beat him, Johny Hendricks’ lost to Stephen Thompson which moved the Wonder Boy up the #2. TJ Dillashaw lost his Bantamweight belt over Dominick Cruz. All these ultimate scenes I managed to watch just like my favorite TV series every night. On Sunday, July 10, 2016 at 10:00AM another episode of their fighting careers are coming out.

"I AM NOT RETIRED" – Conor McGregor

Image result for mcgregor not retired

The  World of Combat Sports was shocked the passed Tuesday after Connor “The Notorious” McGregor  announced his young retirement via tweeter.

The retirement tweeet holds the record of most retweeted post.  A lot of stipulations and rumors came out but it wasn’t confirmed until UFC President Dana White announced that UFC featherweight champion Conor McGregor was pulled from the main event of UFC 200 which is set to take place  on July 9 in Las Vegas.

The GREAT NEWS however is that   Conor McGregor is still willing to show up and FIGHT!

Conor McGregor

34 minutes ago

incorrect fight preparation. And the many distractions that led to this.
Nothing else was going through my mind.
It is time to go back and live the life that got me this life.
Sitting in a car on the way to some dump in Conneticut or somewhere, to speak to Tim and Suzie on the nobody gives a fuck morning show did not get me this life.
Talking to some lady that deep down doesn’t give a fuck about what I’m doing, but just wants some sound bites so she can maybe get her little tight ass a nice raise, and I’m cool with that too, I’ve been giving you all raises. But I need to focus on me now.
I’m coming for my revenge here.
I flew an entire team to Portugal and to Iceland to make my adjustments in preparation and fix my errors I made with the weight and the cardio prep.
With the right adjustments and the right focus, I will finish what I started in that last fight.
I will not do this if I am back on the road handing out flyers again.
I will always play the game and play it better than anybody, but just for this one, where I am coming off a loss, I asked for some leeway where I can just train and focus. I did not shut down all media requests. I simply wanted a slight adjustment.
But it was denied.
There had been 10 million dollars allocated for the promotion of this event is what they told me.
So as a gesture of good will, I went and not only saved that 10 million dollars in promotion money, I then went and tripled it for them.
And all with one tweet.
Keep that 10 mill to promote the other bums that need it. My shows are good.
I must isolate myself now.
I am facing a taller, longer and heavier man. I need to prepare correctly this time.
I can not dance for you this time.
It is time for the other monkeys to dance. I’ve danced us all the way here.
Nate’s little mush head looks good up on that stage these days. Stuff him in front of the camera for it.
He came in with no shit to do that last one. I’d already done press conferences, interviews and shot the ads before RDA pulled out.
Maybe I’ll hit Cabo this time and skull some shots pre-fight with no obligation.
I’m doing what I need for me now.
It is time to be selfish with my training again. It is the only way.
I feel the $400million I have generated for the company in my last three events, all inside 8 months, is enough to get me this slight leeway.
I am still ready to go for UFC 200.
I will offer, like I already did, to fly to New York for the big press conference that was scheduled, and then I will go back into training. With no distractions.
If this is not enough or they feel I have not deserved to sit this promotion run out this one time, well then I don’t know what to say.
For the record also –
For USADA and for the UFC and my contract stipulations –
I AM NOT RETIRED.
