Kelvin Gastelum gets his wish to battle with Anderson Silva at UFC 212

Following his victory over Vitor Belfort last Saturday, middleweight contender Kelvin Gastelum called for another UFC legend to face off with. On June 3, he gets his wish, as he will battle Brazilian icon Anderson Silva in a UFC 212 bout in Rio de Janeiro.

In the main event of UFC 212, which airs live on Pay-Per-View from Jeunesse Arena, Jose Aldo meets Max Holloway for the undisputed UFC featherweight championship.

A former Ultimate Fighter winner who scored five wins at welterweight, the 25-year-old Gastelum is making even more noise at 185 pounds, where he has knocked out Tim Kennedy and Belfort in his two most recent bouts. Unbeaten in Brazil for over 16 years, Silva’s storied career saw him reign over the middleweight division from 2006 to 2013, fighting and beating the best 185-pounders in the world in the process. In February, the 41-year-old Silva turned back the clock once more when he defeated Derek Brunson at UFC 208, and he has his sights set on slowing Gastelum’s momentum when they meet in June.

The Time UFC Fans Around The World Have Been Waiting For!!!

The time UFC fans around the world have been waiting for! Less than 48 hours until UFC 205.

The Octagon travels to New York City for the first time at Madison Square Garden hosts the already historic event on November 12!

Does anyone think Eddie Alvarez can be the latest underdog in a year full of upsets to retain his lightweight belt against Conor McGregor?

Alvarez will be badly badly hurt and it will be over for him. He will not fight again and not look the same after the fight according to Conor McGregor. He has been through hell a lot of wars. He’s been dropped continuously.

He’s right.  I do think it’s a game, and I know it’s a game.  I think he’s right in his assessment. The guys he’s picked to fight, these are subpar guys.  Even Nate is a .500 lightweight and everybody in the lightweight division has beat Nate and he had trouble doing that.  So the guys he’s faced are nothing, nothing of a caliber fighter I am.  And he will see the night of the fight that, ‘S***, I’ve been going up against s****y opponents that were good style matchups and this one’s not and I’m f****d.  Because he’s stronger, way stronger, just as fast and he’s got skill sets that can dominate me any day of the week.’  That’s what the reality he’s going to deal with.  He’s trying to convince himself that he can do something he knows he can’t.  And the night of the fight, we’ll see.  And I would love –

– Eddie Alvarez answered.

Welterweight champion Tyron Woodley will defend his belt against Stephen Thompson in the co-main event. Woodley is looking to knock his opponent out to put on the performance of the night. Woodley is known to come out aggressively during his fights. He has proved against Robbie Lawler that he has the one-punch knockout power.

Well, he does.  He’s definitely got some one-hitter quitter power, as you saw when he fought Robbie Lawler.  I mean, it took one shot.  Obviously I want to stay away from that right hand. But, he’s not only a good striker, he’s always a good wrestler, so when I go out there I definitely have to be on my P’s and Q’s, because not only could he hit you with the right hand, but he’ll take you down as well.  Keeping my footwork, always moving, making it difficult for him to beat on my legs, and just trying to hit and move. That’s the only thing I can do, try and Muhammad Ali him. He is the champion for a reason, so I’m taking that into perspective and always being aware when I’m out there.

-,Stephen Thompson on how he plan to approach their fight.

The toughest woman at straweight Joanna Jedrzejczyk returns to the octagon this weekend to defend her title and have a rematch with Karolina Kowalkiewicz.

Definitely she is going to be different fighter than she was four years ago.  It’s a big deal for her.  It’s a big fight for both of us.  For me, because I want to defend my title for fourth time already, but she’s a challenger. She has nothing to lose. I must put on great fight.  I put on a great performance this camp, but I must put on good fight and everything is going to be fine.

– Joanna Jedrzejczyk about the changes or if Karolina evolved in the years, since then coming into this fight.

Everybody wants to know about Chris Weidman and New York, and rightfully so, as the Long Islander played a pivotal role in getting MMA sanctioned in his home state earlier this year. But what about Yoel Romero, the guy Weidman is fighting on November 12? The Olympic Silver medalist from Cuba has been nearly forgotten in the lead-up to the fight, but he has the power to spoil this homecoming with one swing, and luckily, “The All-American” knows it. So despite all the media obligations, Weidman has been putting in the hours in the gym and he expects to be more than ready for the real reason he’s heading into Midtown on Saturday night.

Donald Cerrone has been a revelation at welterweight, with three wins, three finishes and three bonuses since moving from the lightweight division in February. And while “Cowboy” still talks of going back to 155, if he beats Kelvin Gastelum this weekend, you have to put him in the title picture. Of course, that’s easier said than done, and with Gastelum coming off the best win of his career over Johny Hendricks in July, and him being the bigger and stronger welterweight, it just might be the former Ultimate Fighter winner walking away with the win, the bonus, and a spot in the title race. On November 11 however Kelvin Gastelum announced that he didn’t make the weight limit. He apologized to Cowboy Cerrone that their match was pulled from the card.

Before Raquel Pennington and Miesha Tate even step into the Octagon on Saturday, you have to tip your cap to these two ladies, who have probably fought the highest level of competition of anyone in WMMA. That means this one is likely going to be a grueling three-round war, because neither fighter knows how to give ground to an opponent. Sure, they’ve had their losses, but they’ve only come against the best in the business, making this a solid opener to the Pay-Per-View main card.

Frankie Edgar and Jeremy Stephens could wind up being a Gatti-Ward type fight for MMA. Think about it – two old school, hard-nosed fighters who always show to do just that – fight. It may not be pretty in a conventional sense, but I think after 15 minutes of action, we’ll call it a beautiful masterpiece.

Despite his background on the mat, Michael Johnson told me he’s not getting into a wrestling match with Khabib Nurmagomedov. Good call, and a smart one, because if “The Menace” can keep his unbeaten foe at bay and stick and move his way out of trouble, it will be another statement-making victory for a young man who will have gone from back-to-back losses to Beniel Dariush and Nate Diaz to the doorstep of a world title shot.

Chicago’s Belal Muhammad has quickly become a must-see in the Octagon, and the fact that this is his third fight in the UFC since July (and fourth overall for 2016) just adds to his appeal. And then there’s Vicente Luque, who has also emerged as one of the welterweight division’s top prospects as well thanks to three consecutive wins – and finishes. This will be an exciting fight, but more importantly, a star will likely emerge from the bout.

In July, Jim Miller was contemplating retirement. Now he’s got a two-fight winning streak and could crash the lightweight top 15 again if he can defeat Thiago Alves. Brazil’s “Pitbull” never thought about walking away after a series of injuries, but now he’s entering a new division against one of that division’s most aggressive competitors. Miller will find out quick is Alves is ready for 155 pounds.

With his back against the wall earlier this year, Tim Boetsch delivered, snapping a three-fight losing skid with a stoppage of Josh Samman. In that fight, “The Barbarian” realized that living up to his nickname in the Octagon may be the best course of action from here on out. And he can repeat that kind of performance against Rafael Natal, but he’ll also have to look out for the kind of slick jiu-jitsu “Sapo” can deliver after the slightest of mistakes from an opponent.

New Jersey’s Katlyn Chookagian impressed in her UFC debut, decisioning Lauren Murphy with a striking attack that had all the hallmarks of her coach Mark Henry in it. If she can maintain that attack against former world title challenger Liz Carmouche, she may just end up in the top 10 next week. But Carmouche is no easy out for anyone, and her swarming style will be a tough one for the local favorite to deal with for 15 minutes.

Below is the full fight card, bout order and broadcast details:

UFC Leaves Fans Devastated As They Cancels Entire Manila Card

Source: Wikipedia
October 7, 2016 around 1:57AM, I saw URCC light heavyweight champion Chris Valdez Hofman reposted ONE heavyweight champion Brandon Vera’s post that the UFC just cancelled their entire PI card on Facebook. At first, looks like a rumor since BJ Penn had to pullout of the fight.  Seconds later, a legit source FOX Sports twitted that the UFC Fight Night: Lamas vs. Penn to be rescheduled after losing half of main event. Filipinos are not pleased especially fight fans.

The reason stated by UFC was due to the loss of the main event. I don’t understand why as they have many fighters to replace Penn. Bryan Caraway, Robert Whiteford and Dan Hang even offered to fight Lamas. 
But there’s another side of the story that makes sense too. Every athlete will have to give blood for drug test. When you test positive, passport will be confiscated in country. Was it redundancy then? Because USADA tests these UFC fighters for performance-enhancing drugs and masking agents. URCC founder Alvin Aguilar also speaks about UFC Manila cancellation.
Slow ticket sales was also the big suspect to have led to the cancellation of the event.
I hope UFC will still fulfill the second unforgettable show they will put on for Filipino fans. WILL IT SOON BE TIME?

“The consistently warm reception we receive from Filipino fans and last year’s sold out event shows us that UFC has an incredibly strong following in the country. Manila is a fighting city and we hope to put on another unforgettable show that will capture the hearts of Filipino sports fans throughout the country,” Kenneth Berger said, Executive Vice President & General Manager of UFC Asia 

Anyone that knows me knows I love MMA. MMA’s biggest fan was hurt. I just want to watch the fight card. I don’t care what’s on social media. Is the UFC Manila still happening this year? If not when will it ever happen again?

ICYMI: Results of UFC 204: Henderson vs. Bisping 2

Photo Credit: NIKLAS HALLE’N/AFP/Getty Images
Michael Bisping remains to be the middleweight champion of the world after beating the legend and future Hall of Famer Dan Henderson via unanimous decision. This is his 20th wins which made the most wins in UFC history. Bisping just passed Gorges St-Pierre’s record. But it was never an easy one. Hendo gave him massive punches that broke Bisping’s face. The Count escaped the finish in the first and second round. The UFC 204 was held on October 8, 2016 at the Manchester Arena in Manchester, England.

Gegard Mousasi extends his win-streak with a huge win against one of the scariest fighters Vitor Belfort who was reportedly retiring after this fight. Belfort was throwing combos countering Mousasi. In the second round, The Armenian Assassin kicked The Phenom in the head then finished him off with ground and pound.

Ovince Saint Preux lost to Jimi Manuwa. He was brutally knocked out by The Poster Boy’s left hook. This competition was important for both men to move on up the LHW rankings and avoid adding one more in their loss record. Manuwa bounced back from a KO loss to Anthony Johnson at UFC 191, while Jon Jones defeated OSP in their short-notice bout at UFC 197.

The Michael Bisping vs. Dan Henderson bout was awarded FOTN. While Jimi Manuwa and Iuri Alcantara both earned POTN.

Romero wins in three

Cuban middleweight contender Yoel Romero made an emphatic case for a future shot at the 185-pound crown Saturday, knocking out former world champion Lyoto Machida in the third round of the UFC Fight Night main event at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino for his tenth and most important pro win.

Despite fans chanting for Lyoto Machida, Romero proved them all wrong by showcasing supreme athleticism. Machida opened with his fast kicks utilizing it very well in the first round but Romero was wise enough to close in the distance and was able to land a haymaker of his own making Machida caught off balance.

Second round Machida was able to keep romero at bay with long range kicks, while “the soldier of god” keeps on stalking until he landed some hard punches upstairs. In the second minute of the third round, the kinetic chess match ended in an instant, Romero taking Machida to the mat suddenly and following up with a flush set of elbows that brought in referee John McCarthy to step in and halt the bout at 1:38 of the frame.

With the win, the number six-ranked Romero moves to 10-1; the number four-ranked Machida, 37, falls to 22-7. The loss was Machida’s second straight, following an April submission defeat against Luke Rockhold.

Aldo still plans to face Mcgregor on UFC 189

Aldo has a bone bruise to his rib and a cartilage injury following a training accident this week, according to a UFC statement. The UFC said it has received confirmation from “several doctors” that Aldo did not suffer a broken rib. Despite this he still plans on healing up fast and fighting Connor Mcgregor this UFC 189. UFC however, has other plans on there own. If at worst case Aldo cant fight Chad Mendes (17-2) is ready to take his place. 

Mendes just got a big “W” from his previous fight against Ricardo Lamas last April 4 and is the current number 1 contender on the featherweight division.

Only time will tell if Aldo can recover fast enough for the most anticipated UFC 189 on Saturday June 11 .

UFC 189 to be or not to be?

Jose Aldo is bruised, but not broken, according to an official update from that was just released.

“In light of recent reports regarding the status of UFC featherweight champion Jose Aldo, UFC has received official medical confirmation from several doctors that Aldo did not suffer a broken rib. Following a review of the scans, it has been determined that the champion suffered a bone bruise to his rib and cartilage injury during training. With this news, Aldo has expressed that he has every intention of facing Conor McGregor at UFC 189.”

That’s awesome news; however, UFC 189 is little more than two weeks away and all indications are that Aldo is currently in “deep pain” 

If, for whatever reason, Aldo is unable to regain full form or suffers another setback preparing for “Notorious” ahead of showtime, UFC has tapped Chad Mendes to serve as its “contingency plan.” 


Come Jun 27, 2015 and witness Lyoto “The Dragon” Machida (22-6-0) fight Yoel Romero (9-1-0) currently ranked 6th on a 5 round middleweight bout.

After a devastating loss to Luke Rockhold on UFN last April 18, 2015 Lyoto aims to bounce back and claim victor on this fight to retain his current 3rd ranking. Yoel “Soldier of God” Romero however is been on a 4 consecutive winning streak since November 6, 2013 and is determined to keep the ball rolling. Both men are determined to win on this clash. Who will reign victorious?

This girl is on fire

Jedrzejczyk proved again Saturday in Berlin that she’s the UFC strawweight division’s version of Ronda Rousey. With a little bit of Conor McGregor thrown in.

Jedrzejczyk’s three-round dismantling of No. 3 contender Jessica Penne follows a dominant knockout of Carla Esparza at UFC 185 in March. She took the championship belt from Esparza, defended it against Penne and appears unbeatable in the 115-pound class, at least until a new challenger steps forward.

Asked afterward is she had an opponent in mind for her next bout, Jedrzejczyk replied, “Are they ready for me? No.”

Dana White on "Tough Crowd"

UFC 188 has ended we have a new champion. But during the fights boos rained down on several bout, including Tecia Torres‘ win over Angela Hill, andCathal Pendred’s workmanlike victory over Mexico native Augusto Montano.

In the post-fight press conference,  UFC president Dana White was asked what he thought of Mexico having a “Tough Crowd.?”
“It was a very educated crowd, and a huge moment for us — huge moment for me because I’ve been waiting for so long to get into Mexico. And then when the main event started, there was not one…when this thing sold out, when you talk about a sell out, there’s a lot of times we’ll sell out an arena and there’ll be some single seats left. There wasn’t one single seat left in this arena. Completely sold out. And in the main event, I don’t know if any of you looked around, packed to the rafters and everybody had their lights on. It was awesome, man. It wasn’t a tough crowd, it was an educated crowd. Amazing.”
White reiterated, too, that Mexico has traditionally been a country of boxing fans.

Why Dan Henderson should retire even with recent win.

Before Saturday’s UFC main event, Many fans thought Dan Henderson should retire. It had nothing to do with claiming Henderson’s skills had diminished or that he was somehow a worse fighter than he was in his prime. Its just that he has done enough for the sport and its time for him to hang up his gloves.

Henderson has lost more, and more frequently, in recent years, and almost always by way of violent beatings. He’s even taken a great deal of damage to his brain and body in wins (like in both his wars with Mauricio “Shogun” Rua).

With the cumulutive damage he got from all of his fights and he is also a couple of months shy away of 45 years of age. His got nothing else to prove. “Dangerous Dan” is already on the hall of fame. That’s why even a thrilling first-round knockout win over Tim Boetsch in New Orleans doesn’t change the fact that Henderson has taken more than enough damage to his body and brain to warrant retirement. Heading into Saturday’s fight, Henderson had lost five out of his last six contests.

For a guy like Hendo, it is going to be a hard transition away from fighting at 45, or at 85. Whatever makes Henderson a great fighter is inside of him, and whatever is inside him won’t ever go away.

Dan "Hendo" still has it.

Hendo still got it. Stopping Tim Boetsch and winning the main event with TKO in just 28 seconds.“Obviously, I can’t feel bad about that one,” Henderson said. “Its nice, when I say ‘I’m not done’ and no one believes me, to actually come out and prove i’m not quite done yet.”

The beginning of the end came when Henderson cracked Boetsch with one of his patented “H-bomb” right hands to the jaw, then finished the job soon thereafter. Henderson is a former Pride Champion and stopped a 2 fight losing skid.

Many MMA fans tweeted that Dan Hendo still has it and anyone gonna afce him should be afraid of the “H Bomb”.

Enchancements no more.

June 3 wednesday, UFC announced a new scheme of anti doping testing. Enough is enough they said.The UFC isn’t messing around. It doesn’t want cheaters competing in the promotion. After the incident with Anderson Silva and Jon Bones Jones turning in hot for enchancement drugs.Fighters will be tested for performance enhancing drugs (approximately) five-and-a-half times a year out of competition. As of July, first-time offenders are going on a long hiatus (one to two years). Second-time offenders are essentially being furloughed for good (double the sanction of first-time offenders). Third time offenders, well, they might as well go off to live in Dostoyevsky’s Siberia (double the sanction of second-time offenders, which in dog years is a lifetime). 

So Cheaters beware. UFC is serious this time. For more information visit

A new victim for the "Natural Born Killer."

Carlos Condit brutally punished Thiago Alves on a 2nd round Doctor stoppage TKO WIN in the main event of UFC Fight Night 67 in Goiania, Brazil. Prior to fight a year ago Condit tore his ACL after a loss to Tyrone Woodley and seems no sign of that injury bothered him on this fight.

In the second round, Condit dropped Alves with a left hand and then bloodied him up with elbow after elbow a crucial hit to Alves nose broke it which caused the stoppage.In between the second and third rounds, the doctor stepped in and put an end to the fight. Alves’ nose was so badly broke that part of the bone was popping out near his eyebrow area.

Condit (30-8) has now won two of three fights in the UFC and is still one of the best welterweights in the world.

Road to Recovery

Carlos Condit on his injury last year.

Carlos Condit describes how he was ‘lucky’ to tear ACL late in his career. FC welterweight contender Carlos Condit has been sidelined from MMA competition for over a year since tearing his ACL against Tyrone Woodley at UFC 171.Despite the injury he stayed positive trained hard for his upcoming fight with Thiago Alves.

In an interview from Fox News Carlos said “It’s part of the sport. After it happened, there was no changing it,” “I wasn’t going to be able to re-grow my ACL back overnight. I was where I was with this and I just had to accept it. I had to stay focused on getting back. Honestly, I kind of felt in a weird way lucky because it was 12 years into my career that this happened. It could have happened a long time ago and really set me back,” Condit said. “At least I’ve accomplished quite a bit in the sport before this happened and ultimately something like this is inevitable in a sport like MMA.”

Despite this he feels good and fully recovered and is more than ready for his upcoming fight with Thiago “Pitbull” Alves on UFC Fight Night 67
