  2. Dan Hooker pulled no punches in the Octagon or in his post-fight scrum last weekend at UFC 226. Following his first-round knockout over Gilbert Burns, Hooker cut a frustrated figure. He told the gathered media that the Brazilian’s weight cut played a big part in Hooker dropping Burns in the sequence that finished the fight. “The Hangman” was adamant that he should have been matched with a top-10 opponent for the event. Now 4-0 as a UFC lightweight, the Kiwi’s coach, Eugene Bareman, thinks former lightweight champion, Anthony Pettis, would make sense as his next port of call. “I like the Anthony Pettis fight next, that’s what I was thinking the next day,” Bareman told MMA Fighting. “I think Dan likes that fight as well. Dan’s a hard man to read sometimes, but I think he’d like that fight. You know how it is, we want top-10 guys, so any of them will do. We just want the opportunity. “Obviously, I think Dan can beat him,” Bareman added. “I think with Dan’s style against Anthony’s style, there will be a lot of things we can take advantage of. It would be a good fight for the fans and the promotion too. Anthony came out of his fight pretty unscathed too, so I think that fight is a real possibility. Off the top of me head, that’s the only matchup I can think of.” Bareman pointed to a small detail that he felt was the difference between Hooker and Burns during their final striking exchange. “When Dan threw the left hook that finished the fight, he showed a great skill that he has,” said the City Kickboxing head coach. “He dropped his chin and he put his shoulder up. It puts his chin in a nice position so if he does miss his shot he can absorb his opponent’s shot. They both absorbed left hooks in that finishing sequence, but Gilbert didn’t absorb it the same way because he didn’t use that little detail. “It’s something you only see in high level striking, it takes years to learn those kinds of things. I might be talking to you about something completely different if Gilbert had been striking for as long as he has been grappling.” New Zealand stand up!@DanTheHangman earns his FOURTH finish in a row at #UFC226! Sensational! pic.twitter.com/HL9JkAwXWZ — UFC (@ufc) July 7, 2018 The New Zealander believes that Burns’ confidence in his striking was one of Hooker’s biggest assets in the fight. “[Burns] is primarily a grappler, so I think he’s got to work on fundamentals. Don’t get me wrong, Dan works on fundamentals too, but it’s the finer details that you can’t really address until you’ve got the basics down. Gilbert is a beginner when it comes to striking,” he said. “From the outside looking in, the problem with Gilbert is the success he has had with his standup has almost taken him away from his grappling. He hasn’t been able to put the success he has had in striking into perspective. Against what level of striking opponent is he having his success? If you’re just throwing a blind overhand right and it’s hitting a guy with his chin up in the air, that’s probably not going to work against a high-level striker. In a general sense, we thought his confidence in his striking was one of our biggest advantages going into that fight.” Bareman also echoed Hooker’s post-fight sentiment that Burns was hampered by his weight cut. “When you get to see a guy around the hotel on fight week, you can really get a feel on whether he struggles to make the weight or not, and I agree 100 percent with Dan — the guy cuts too much weight. At a certain point you’re just cutting too much weight and you’re not able to do the things that you’re best at,” said Bareman. “We identified last year that Dan’s weight cut was having a terrible affect on his performances, that’s why he moved to 155. Gilbert is perhaps a guy that needs to get a better system for his weight management or he needs to move to welterweight. You’ve got to back your skills to win you a fight rather that a weight or size advantage.” Afficher l’article complet

  11. Former UFC champion Conor McGregor seems to be having fun in Russia. One minute he’s checking on the progress of his “Russian compound” in an intentionally vague video posted to Twitter. The next he’s checking out the World Cup final as a “guest” of Russian president Vladimir Putin. Wait, what? Yeah, that’s right. That’s the biggest star in MMA doing the old fighter fist pose thing with the man who many would describe as more of a dictator than a president at this point, and he didn’t stop with a grinning photo op, either. In his caption posted to Instagram, McGregor praised Putin as “one of the greatest leaders of our time” and said he was “honored to attend such a landmark event alongside him.” So would now be a good time to ask McGregor how he feels about the many, many human rights abuses that are known or alleged to have taken place in Putin’s Russia? How about all the journalists and critics of Putin who have turned up dead under mysterious circumstances? How about his recent win in an election generally regarded as a “sham” by outside observers? No? We’re just going to ignore all that and call him a great leader so we can enjoy some World Cup action instead? Cool. McGregor’s far from the first fighter to get cozy with a dictatorial leader in that part of the world. Former UFC champs like Fabricio Werdum have taken heat for their paid associations with Chechan leader Ramzan Kadyrov, who stands accused of many of the same abuses as Putin, albeit on a smaller scale. Apparently none of that bothers McGregor, which makes you wonder if he doesn’t know about Putin’s track record or just doesn’t care.

  19. For Daniel Cormier to take the heavyweight championship from Stipe Miocic, he had to give up something first. “DC” added the heavyweight title to his collection last Saturday with a first-round knockout of Miocic in the main event of UFC 226 in Las Vegas, an outcome that seemed unlikely given that Miocic had only once been finished with strikes in 20 bouts prior to fighting Cormier. So how was Cormier able to pull off what knockout artists like Francis Ngannou, Alistair Overeem, and Mark Hunt could not? Appearing as a guest on the “Monday Morning Analyst” segment of The MMA Hour, Dominick Cruz explained to host Luke Thomas how Cormier used his grappling mastery to lure Miocic into his world early in round one and set up the finish just minutes later. “Go back to the very beginning of the fight, to the very, very first sequence. You see Cormier is already looking for this setup,” Cruz said, when asked how Cormier’s use of underhooks played into his strategy. “And this is one of his things he’s used throughout his entire career, but I think that he assumed that it was going to work extra well against Stipe and you can see he has a natural gift to where he can feel things and then just flow instead of overthinking it. “And right off the bat Stipe came across the fence and started punching combinations and what you do is you grab. You grab the top of the head and you grab underhook on the other side and what that does is it gives Stipe the underhook, but it also allows (Cormier) to grab the uppercut and fire on the opposite side. So it’s kind of a weird feeling for Stipe. Most people don’t give underhooks like that, most of the time there’s a fight there.” By giving up an underhook, Cormier was able to neutralize the length and reach advantage of the 6-foot-4 Miocic. Cormier both took away Miocic’s long-distance striking options and gave himself the opportunity to land short punches and possibly find an opening for a takedown. And because Miocic was given an underhook, he felt that he was having success in the grappling himself and would not be inclined to disengage. When Cormier went to this sequence again in the final minute of the round, that’s when everything unfolded perfectly for him. “So it was really intelligent because it was a trap. The whole thing was a big trap,” Cruz continued. “DC just wanted to grapple with Stipe to get the feel of the Greco. Now in that last sequence, it’s not that DC was driving the underhook. He gave the underhook. So if you watch, you’ll see that he’s right back to that very first sequence that the fight started out with where he pretty much puts that left hand almost on the back of Stipe’s neck and by doing that he can switch to an uppercut with the right hand if he wants to. But what Stipe did is what most people would do, he went and tried to jack the underhook up because that’s how you gain control on a shorter man. DC ‘limp-armed’ Stipe when he trid to jack him up, and a ‘limp arm’ is like when you just sag the arm back through and you come around the waist of Stipe. “By doing that, Stipe has to move away from the tight waist that DC grabbed, because if DC grabbed that tight waist he now has a sequence to throw Stipe. So as he walked away from the tight waist of Daniel Cormier, he walked into the right hand of Daniel Cormier, which actually makes it more powerful and harder to defend. It’s just dirty boxing 101 with Greco Roman wrestling and it was just in fluidity and it was beautiful.” Cruz compared Cormier to UFC legend Randy Couture, who also captured titles in both the light heavyweight and heavyweight divisions — though he never held two belts simultaneously as Cormier is currently doing — citing their Olympic-level Greco Roman wrestling backgrounds as one key to their success. During his record-setting run as UFC heavyweight champion, Miocic had not faced an opponent with Cormier’s wrestling credentials. But even knowing that Cormier presented a unique challenge to Miocic, Cruz was as surprised as everyone else that his fellow FOX Sports analyst was able to end the fight so emphatically. “I think that when you look at the way that fight went, nobody really thought knockout going in the first round, so that was surprising,” Cruz said. “But the fact that he won, not really surprising; just to get a knockout in the first round, that was pretty cool for him.” Afficher l’article complet
