I will show the world what a Pinoy fighter is – Gab Dy

UFC Pinoy Fighter Rolando Gabriel Dy is currently in Shanghai, China in preparation for his 3rd and could be his final fight in the UFC if he falls short again.
Gabriel Dy recognizes the importance of his upcoming fight against Wuliji Buren (10-4-0), as this could be his last chance for redemption. If he loses this fight, it would mean 3 losses in a row in the UFC for him. Dy was only advised two weeks before the fight but is still grateful for the opportunity to be a part of UFC Shanghai.

Georges St-Pierre Thinks Bisping Fight is the Best Night of his Career

GSP is back!

One word, he is the Greatest UFC Fighter! You may agree or not but, he is definitely up there among other choices and last weekend he proved that he still has what it takes to become a champion again.
Yes he is huge, yes he may have slowed down but a big YES that he is still a better fighter than most of the current welterweights and the middleweights in the UFC and only time will tell if he would continue to be, especially now that he is rumored to be taking in Robert Whittaker next.

The best night of GSP’s career

I couldn’t agree more.
In front of thousands of fans in the Mecca of Sports, GSP convincingly won his second world title in as many division matching Connor McGregor’s feat. Certainly this is a great moment to remember for St.Pierre.
Georges St-Pierre (@GeorgesStPierre) tweeted at 6:13 AM on Mon, Nov 06, 2017:
The atmosphere last night at MSG was unreal… Feeling great today – Thanks everyone for making this the best night of my career!!! Merci!

At 40 years old, Bisping acknowledges that he is not a young man after being choked out to sleep by the new middleweight champion Georges St. Pierre. 
An obviously frustrated Michael Bisping talks to a reporter about the fight and his plans and one of his immediate plans is to drink and get drunk.
He is a strong man and you can see! God Bless him, Good for him!- Michael Bisping

It is what it is, you have to take it as a man! – Bisping
Michael Bisping is certainly one of the most colorful fighters in the UFC and while he contemplates on his future we certainly like to see him back inside the octagon and kick some ass again. 
Check out the interview below.

Georges St-Pierre vs Michael Bisping Biggest UFC Fight in Madison Square Garden in New York

In the second fight of the UFC in the mecca of sports entertainment, the UFC is bringing back one its legendary fighters and while the first event enjoyed tremendous success the second one might go even further.
Second Coming of St-Pierre
UFC will be back in New York as George St-Pierre returned to the Octagon to take on a bigger challenge as he tries to capture a higher weight class belt than what he was fighting for a few years ago.
Four years ago, Georges St-Pierre from out of nowhere decided to go away from the sports. His last fight against Johnny Hendricks which he won via split decision marks his 9th title defense and up to right now, it still stands as the longest consecutive title defenses in UFC Welterweight division. Georges was considered an invisible fighter during his days and it seems like no one else in the UFC can figure out how to defeat him.


UFC is different now, Bisping is the King of Middleweight
When Georges St. Pierre left the sport, Michael Bisping in 2013 was a different fighter.  Bisping had lost two of his last four fights then to Chael Sonnen in 2012 and Vitor Belfort in 2013. In 2014 Bisping predicament continued as he dropped two of his three fights in 2014 against tough contenders Tim Kennedy and Luke Rockhold.
In 2015, the wheels have turned and since April of 2015 he has not lost a single fight and has gone on to defeat his previous conqueror Luke Rockhold in a fight that also won him the UFC Middleweight belt and the performance of the Night. Bisping at 38 has now compiled 5 wins in a row including memorable fights with Anderson Silva and Dan Henderson. 
On November 4, at the Madison Square Garden, one man is looking to restart his MMA career by conquering an unchartered division while the other will try to prove that he belongs to the top as he spoils the return of one of the most prolific fighters that the UFC have seen.

UFC middleweight champion Michael Bisping prepares for a unique title defense against longtime welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre, who is coming out of retirement after four years. Bitter rivals and onetime teammates Cody Garbrandt and TJ Dillashaw will at last clash for the belt that Garbrandt now holds and that Dillashaw once wore. And dominant strawweight champion Joanna Jedrzejczyk readies for her next challenge in the form of unflappable former title challenger Rose Namajunas. Go inside the lives and gyms of these six athletes as they train to compete at the UFC’s historic return to Madison Square Garden.

Bellator 186: Ryan Bader vs Linton Vassell Preview and Prediction

Bellator 186:  Ryan Bader vs. Linton Vassell for the Light Heavyweight Title

On November 3, 2017, Bellator Light Heavyweight contender Linton Vassell has a huge opportunity in front of him as he challenges Ryan Bader for the title in a matchup that most fans and critics predicted to be one-sided in favor of the defending champion.
Bryce Jordan Center, Pennsylvania, 34-year-old Ryan Bader a former UFC fighter with 23 wins and 4 losses record will be defending his title for the first time as British Linton Vassel tries to impose his size but it won’t be easy against Ryan Bader who has improved and shown a complete fight game. A world class wrestler Bader would most likely be physical and agressive in this fight against Vassell who may be looking to counter him with a submission.
While we see a good fight here, we just have to pick the popular choice Ryan Bader.
Ilima Macfarlane & Emily Ducote will also fight for the Inaugural Women’s flyweight championship.
The fight will be on Spike in the United States.

Watch Out Boxing Promoters, UFC Could Eventually Do a Boxing Event

UFC, thinking of putting boxing match under their event

The 48-year-old president of the UFC Dana White recently appeared on a podcast hosted by Wallstreet Journal as he talks about MMA, UFC and other things that includes promoting a real boxing event.
I could see bringing boxing under our umbrella and trying to see what we could do with that, I could see doing that. – Dana White said during an interview on the Wall Street Journal’s The Unnamed Podcast.
It is no secret that Dana White is also a fan of the Sweet Science. He has been one of the well-known followers of boxing and recently, he himself was part of a boxing event when MMA Fighter Conor McGregor faced Boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr.
The President of UFC certainly had disrupted the fight game started when he created the Ultimate Fighting Championship and now it has grown bigger, and they continue to create new innovation and disruption in the marketplace and it looks like they are not done.

Personally, I think a boxing match inside the cage could happen anytime soon, it’s just a matter of time. After all, the Octagon resemble a ring more than the boxing ring that’s really square shaped.

Pinoy UFC Fighter CJ De Tomas Shares His Inspirations, Preparations and Revelations, His Message to Local MMA Promoters

CJ De Tomas shares his experience in the UFC, preparations and his no holds barred comments to the MMA promotions in the Philippines. 

The Golden Boy maybe considered as local MMA superstar in the Philippines but he had a rude awakening when he first stepped in the UFC cage. Recently getting an opportunity to fight for the top MMA promotion in the world, CJ De Tomas fell short as he battled not just his opponent but forces outside of the cage as he admits issues with his camp, family and financial burden. 
Being a fighter is not easy – CJ De Tomas
CJ De Tomas opened up with Pow Salud as he gave us a quick glimpse of the challenges he had as well as the reasons why he fights. At a young age of 21, De Tomas already considered himself as a family man and will do everything for his wife and daughter.
The Golden Boy understands that the UFC is different and also calls out local MMA as he frankly shares his views on local MMA and how it should work together as a unit and not be divided.  An obviously disheartened CJ also could not hold his dismay against local MMA promoters who does not treat the fighters well and even offered a piece of advice:
“Sa mga promoters, pinaka priority nyo yung fighters, hindi mabubuhay yung promotions nyo kung wala yung mga fighters, kung hindi kayo marunong mag alaga matatalo kayo, kelangan marunong kayo mag alaga,  buti pa yung manok may premyo, sa fighter thank you lang”

Reportedly, the positive test for steroids could result in a ban up to four years. UFC on FOX told per Dana White though, the UFC has not yet stripped Jon Jones of his title.
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 suspension was due to USADA violation occurred during a test from June 2016. Jon Jones was pulled from UFC 200. Jon Jones came back and captured the interim light heavyweight title with a unanimous decision victory over Ovince Saint Preux in April 2016, setting the octagon for a supposed blockbuster rematch against Daniel Cormier at UFC 200. Prior to this, he tested positive for cocaine in January 2015 and hit-and-run a pregnant lady three months after the same year.

The fastest undercard in UFC history was in Mexico City


European middleweights clashed in the Octagon at Arena Ciudad de Mexico in Mexico City Saturday night, with Norway’s Jack Hermansson scoring a first-round stoppage of England’s Brad Scott that earned “The Joker” his second consecutive knockout win.

Looking to implement his ground game, Hermansson got his wish with a takedown in the second minute, and from there, Scott had no answers, as he was flattened out and then subjected to a series of unanswered ground strikes that left referee Bladimir Puga no choice but to stop the fight at the 3:50 mark of round one.

No. 12-ranked flyweight contender Dustin Ortiz scored the fastest finish in UFC flyweight history, stopping Hector Sandoval in 15 seconds.

Sandoval was looking to brawl as the bout began, and while he caught Ortiz with a couple hard shots, the equalizer was Ortiz’ right hand, which put Sandoval to a knee. Another right followed and the Uruapan native hit the deck face first. Three more hammerfists followed and referee Jerin Valel called a stop to the fight.

Franklin, Tennessee’s Ortiz moves to 17-7 with the win; Sandoval falls to 14-4.


Bantamweight submission wizard Rani Yahya showed off his ground game once again when he faced Henry Briones, forcing the Mexico native to tap out in the first round.

Yahya got it to the mat in the opening mat and quickly went hunting for submissions, first a choke, then a kimura, and it was the kimura that hit paydirt, with Briones tapping out at the 2:01 mark.

Brasilia’s Yahya moves to 24-9 with 1 NC; Tijuana’s Briones falls to 19-7-1.

In a meeting of former TUF Latin America cast mates, Jose Quinonez shut out Diego Rivas over three rounds.

All three judges saw the bantamweight bout 30-27.

Quinonez (7-2) was in control from the start and he never yielded that control to Chile’s Rivas (7-1), who was fighting for the first time since a 2016 bout with cancer.

Primarily using a slick stick and move attack, Zacatecas’ Quinonez did show off some impressive ground-and-pound work in the second, and in the third, his ground defense was sharp as he held off Rivas’ last attempts at turning the fight around.


Highly touted Team Alpha Male product Joseph Morales lived up to the hype in his UFC debut submitting fellow debutant Roberto Sanchez in a clash of unbeaten flyweight prospects.

Sanchez got a takedown 30 seconds into the fight and was able to control the action there until the midway point of the round, when Morales rose and then knocked Sanchez down with a left-right. Morales chased after the knockout, but he ended up winning the fight on the ground, as he sunk in a rear naked choke that forced Sanchez to tap out at 3:56 of round one.

Sacramento’s Morales improves to 9-0; Houston’s Sanchez falls to 7-1.

Paulie Malignaggi Furious After Photo Leak; Quits as McGregor Sparring Partner

Former 2-division world champion and now boxing commentator Paulie Malignaggi quits as Conor McGregor boxing sparring and partner and was furious after sparring session photos leak.

 Malignaggi made it clear that the cause of the knock down was a push.

“I wanted to be part of this event, but I didn’t want to become the story and that’s what this has turned into,” Malignaggi told ESPN. “I won’t release any information about his game plan or what he’s working on — I wouldn’t do that. But this has become a fiasco. It’s a circus. And I do want that sparring video released. The UFC’s PI definitely has that video. I understand it can’t come out now, but Conor, if you have any balls, release what really happened.”

“There was a pushdown yesterday. Conor on the inside, he can get a little rough. He shoved me down, you know, but no knockdowns. Obviously, 12 rounds, you’re gonna see there’s a mark on my face. Very, very hard work for both of us. I was starting to get in a groove in the middle rounds, starting to land some good shots. Conor really came on strong in the end. It was back and forth.”

UFC Lightweight champion Conor McGregor hired Malignaggi last month as a sparring partner ahead of his fight with boxing superstar Conor McGregor on August 26th at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas Nevada.

Paulie Malignaggi Reacts to McGregor was KOd in Sparring: That was all B.S.

Former 2-division world champion and now boxing commentator Paulie Malignaggi reacts to rumors that Connor McGregor was KO’d in a boxing sparring.
“That was all B.S. stuff. I think when these reports first came out, he was just returning from a press tour in Europe. The person who was saying that, Jessie Vargas, that he saw Conor get knocked out. That was physically impossible. Conor arrived in Las Vegas that Saturday, it was 2-3 weeks ago. Saturday he arrived and that Sunday the interview with Jessie Vargas came out. He said Conor got knocked out, which is physically impossible unless Conor was flying 14 hours and then sparring the same day,” Malignaggi told The Rich Eisen Show.
Also, another thing is, we train at the UFC headquarters and its very private so nobody can come in. You are not going to get anybody out there who doesn’t belong in the gym.”

Jon Jones has taken back his throne and more of UFC 214


Really happy about already the best fight card of 2017 for me. UFC 214 aka Cormier vs. Jones 2, so I sit down and celebrated by enjoying a nice one post I want to write.

We don’t usually see the humble side of Jon “Bones” especially to Daniel Cormier. The new light heavy weight Champion of the world put the rivalry aside and gave props to his opponent instead.

Jon Jones: “Big thank you to all MMA supporters and the fans around the world for all the love and support. Thank you to everyone who supported me throughout this long process. I’m going to do my best to be the champion that you guys deserve to have. Daniel Cormier has been one of the biggest sources of motivation I’ve had in the last two-three years and I thank him for that and for pushing me to a higher level.”

Jones got his title back via third round KO at Honda Center in Anaheim, California on Saturday, July 29, 2017. The kick to the head followed by knee to the body started off Cormier’s wobbling until he dropped on to the canvas. Referee McCarthy waived the fight as Jones was relentless with his strikes. He finished DC on the ground.

After two years of waiting! The most anticipated rematch happened. Jones did exactly what he said he would do. To put the talking to an end. Jon ‘Bones’ Jones made his UFC comeback on April 2016 at UFC 197. The drug (January 2015) and road (April 2015) 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 of the said year ended, UFC gave Jon Jones vs Daniel Cormier as the main event for UFC 200. But three days before the Fight Card of All Time, Jones failed another drug test resulting to being pulled out from UFC 200. He was suspended for one year which was officially over last July 6, 2017. Last May, UFC booked the LHW rivals again to fight.

Jon Jones, Brian Ortega, Renato Moicano and Volkan Oezdemir each earned 50,000 for Performance of the Night bonuses.

Brian Ortega handed Renato Moicano his professional loss when “T-City” sank in a guillotine choke at 2:59 of the third round to secure the submission win after a firefight on the feet for almost three full rounds. The win gives Ortega four wins now in the UFC as he improves to 12-0 in his MMA career.

Cris Cyborg finally wears UFC gold around here waist after taking out tough Tonya Evinger by TKO at 1:56 of the third round. Cyborg controlled the entirety of the fight but Evinger had her moments, evading strikes and looking to clinch. She even landed a takedown in the first round but Cyborg stood right up. In the end the significant strikes began to add up for Cyborg, who finished landing 83 sign. strikes to just 23 for Evinger.

In a fight that lived up to its massive expectations, Robbie Lawler edged Cowboy Cerrone in a unanimous decision (29-28, 29-28, 29-28) in a fight that left everyone in the arena wanting more. Cowboy landed just 1/13 takedowns but landed more total strikes, 83-72 and had the edge in significant strikes landed, 72-64. Lawler came out on fire in the first round, pushing Cerrone back and landing bi shots that rocked Cowboy a bit on two occasions. But Cerrone owned the second round, landing a few head kicks and firing off combos. The two combined for almost 60 significant strikes in the final round before heading to the judges.

Volkan Oezdemir continues his shocking rise in the light heavyweight division with a first-round TKO win against Jimi Manuwa in just :22 of the first round. Manuwa looked to clinch with Oezdemir, who responded with a few big left hands that rocked Manuwa. As “Poster Buy” retreated, Oezdemir charged forward and caught Manuwa, who went tumbling to the mat before the finish moments later. Oezdemir now moves to 3-0 in the UFC.

Ricardo Lamas steamrolled through prospect Jason Knight with a flurry of big winging punches before finishing him at 4:34 of the first round by TKO. It seemed like Knight, who is very confident off his back, thought he could eat punches long enough or until he dropped, where he would be able to survive because of his grappling. But Lamas kept unloading with big shots and when Knight finally fell the referee was forced to jump in and stop the fight.

Tyron Woodley stopped all 24 of Demian Maia’s takedowns and won in a landslide unanimous decision (50-45, 49-46, 49-46). Woodley out-struck Maia 45-23 in what was generally not appreciated by fans in attendance. Woodley said after the fight that he fought a specific gameplan because when Maia gets your back he’s the most dangerous. Woodley defends his title for the third time.

UFC 214 Prediction: Potentially Rusty Jon Jones Still too Big and Too Strong for Good Old Daniel Cormier

Jon Jones vs Daniel Cormier a rematch for the ages in the UFC.

Saturday Night in the US, Sunday morning Manila, one of the most anticipated rematches in fight sports history will happen.
UFC 214: Cormier vs. Jones 2 tomorrow,  July 29, 2017, at Honda Center in Anaheim, California.

Jon Jones was the youngest ever champion at 23 years old. He also holds the record for the most successful and consecutive light heavyweight title defense in the UFC. To say the least, he is one tough and talented fighter inside the cage. He has dominated the sports and is still in the prime of his fighting career.  If only Jon Jones could keep his head together and get out of trouble he would have done more and could have probably retained the title belt that he lost due to issues outside the cage. Jones is now 30 years old and he last fought against Ovince Saint Preux on April 23, 2016, and won the interim UFC Light Heavyweight Championship. Later stripped of the title.

On the other hand, Daniel Cormier at 38 is enjoying a 4 fight winning streak that dated back January at UFC 182 when he first met Jon Jones and lost via unanimous decision. The loss to Jones also marked his first and only loss in his MMA career. Cormier has risen up after that loss and has won the vacant UFC Light Heavyweight Championship and the  Performance of the Night against a tough opponent in Anthony Johnson. Fast forward today he has defended the belt four times in a row against Alexander Gustafsson, Anderson Silva and his last match were a rematch against Anthony Johnson. He won that fight via Submission (rear-naked choke). On July 29, the previous owner of the belt will try to get it back once again.

Prediction: Why we think Jon Jones will win via early KO or submission

Standing at 6’4″ Jon Jones look strong, prime and ready to take back his championship belt against 5’10” champion Daniel Cormier. Jones last fought inside the cage, April 2016 when he defeated Ovince Saint Preux. Since 2013, Jones only fought once a year. He has become a part time MMA fighter due to his battles outside of the cage. Jon Jones may be a little rusty and unfocused but his pure talent, size, and strength may be enough to defeat Daniel Cormier who is aging at 38 years old. While everyone is seeing a close fight as both fighters are good in their own ways, I am seeing a fight that won’t last to three rounds. These are professional fighters and they will fight according to plan but I, with the animosity between them, can see Jon Jones going at it right away just to prove a point.  Jon may attack right away with a combination of strikes and ground game. Cormier will have a success early in the fight and will be able to hit Jones back with his own strikes.  Mid part of the fight Cormier would be out of gas and ultimately, Cormier the world class wrestler, will be obliged to take the fight to the ground but it would be a big mistake as Jones who would be too slick will be able to control the situation and either submit or KO the defending champion.
To be honest, I want Jon Jones to lose because he is not a good role model to fight fans but we all know that the fight is not decided on the basis of being a good guy or a bad guy. It is decided on who came prepared and who is the better fighter and that is Jon Jones.
Jon Jones still got the fire and the motivation to be a great fighter that he once was.
