  2. A matchup between two top welterweights is the latest addition to UFC Raleigh. Former lightweight champion Rafael dos Anjos meets Michael Chiesa at the UFC’s Jan. 25 event. A person with knowledge of the situation confirmed the booking with MMA Junkie after an initial report from ESPN, which came after Chiesa indicated he had a fight lined up on Twitter. The event is scheduled to take place at PNC Arena in Raleigh, N.C., and is expected to stream on ESPN+. See you guys on January 25th. — Michael Chiesa (@MikeMav22) November 21, 2019 Dos Anjos (29-12 MMA, 18-10 UFC) most recently competed in July at UFC on ESPN 4, where he lost a unanimous decision to Leon Edwards. The defeat was dos Anjos’ third in four outings, having also dropped recent fights to Kamaru Usman and Colby Covington. Conversely, Washington’s Chiesa (16-4 MMA, 9-4 UFC) is undefeated since moving up to welterweight. After he defeated Carlos Condit in his divisional debut at UFC 232 last December, Chiesa won a unanimous decision over Diego Sanchez at UFC 239 in July. The latest lineup for the Jan. 25 fight card includes: Curtis Blaydes vs. Junior Dos Santos Frankie Edgar vs. Cory Sandhagen Justine Kish vs. Lucie Pudilova Alen Amedovski vs. Bevon Lewis Jamahal Hill vs. Darko Stosic Felipe Colares vs. Montel Jackson Herbert Burns vs. Nate Landwehr Tony Gravely vs. Brett Johns Lina Lansberg vs. Sara McMann Brianna Van Buren vs. Hannah Cifers Michael Chiesa vs. Rafael dos Anjos Gallery Photos: Best of Rafael dos Anjos view 99 images Gallery Michael Chiesa def.

  3. Troy Worthen made good on his ONE Championship debut, and he looks to score another finish on Friday. Worthen (5-0) takes on Lei Chen (6-1) at ONE Championship 104 and is expecting an action-packed battle. “Chen Lei seems to be a typically pretty aggressive fighter,” Worthen said. “He always tries to push the pace and make people uncomfortable. Unfortunately for him, I’m comfortable everywhere in the fight game and I like that kind of fight. I like to be in wars and people that want to push forward so I think it’s going to be exciting and it’ll be plenty of fireworks but I see myself being victorious and pretty quickly.” The undefeated Worthen, is looking to make the climb up the ONE bantamweight rankings, which are contested at 145 pounds, but knows that he still has quite a bit of work to do. Related Colbey Northcutt discusses lofty long-term ONE Championship goals And he says it’s not necessarily the quantity of the fights it’s going to take, more than it is the quality.. “More so than the amount, I think it’s going to be the quality of wins,” Worthen said. “I think I need to fight top-ranked guys to get to that belt. I have a few in mind, you know. Yusup Saadulaev just won last weekend so, he’s a really well known grappler, and he’s been in ONE Championship for a long time, so I think that could be a fight that gets me towards the belt. “I’ve tested myself against a bunch of strikers before. I haven’t had a grappler (Saadulaev) the same level as me, so that would be interesting, but maybe one or two more after this if they’re top ranked guys. Maybe three or four if not, so we’ll just see how that goes, but I have to get through this one first, so I’m not looking too far.” Voir l'article complet
  4. DUBLIN — Regarded as one of the Europe’s top prospects, Soren Bak had a choice of suitors all vying for his attention but ultimately he decided to ink a deal to join the roster at Bellator MMA rather than pursuing a contract with the UFC or another promotion. Bak explains why he made that decision and previews his Bellator debut against Terry Brazier. Afficher l’article complet

  6. LONDON – Mike Shipman underlined his belief that Fabian Edwards is more emotionally invested in their much-anticipated showdown and explained why he believes Edwards’ public persona is choreographed.

  7. Colbey Northcutt dropped her professional MMA debut, but that won’t stop her from having big aspirations. Northcutt (0-1) recently signed with ONE Championship, joining her brother, Sage, and will take on Putri Padmi (0-1) in a 135-pound women’s flyweight bout Friday at ONE Championship 104 in Singapore. Since ONE doesn’t currently have a women’s flyweight champion, Northcutt hopes she can one day compete for its inaugural title and become the organization’s first titleholder. “Right now, I don’t believe ONE Championship has a flyweight women’s world champion, so right now, coming into ONE, that’s my first immediate goal,” Northcutt said. “Get a few fights first obviously and get my feet wet, and then look to be the first women’s flyweight champ. And then I obviously love that they have kickboxing and muay Thai, so I can definitely branch out and do both. So one step at a time first, get past this fight, and then move forward.” Related ONE Championship signs Colbey Northcutt, Sage's sister, for debut in Singapore It’s been more than two years since Northcutt made her pro MMA debut, and she now finds herself in the same organization as her brother, a chapter in her career that she’s very much looking forward to. “I’m so excited to join Sage,” Northcutt said. “This is a longtime coming obviously. We grew up training and fighting together, and I’ve been following his career for years, so to be in the same organization and fight for ONE Championship is a dream come true really.” A couple of opponent changes later, Northcutt drew Padmi, who, like Northcutt, also dropped her pro debut. Currently training at the Treigning Lab in California, Northcutt has made a lot of changes to her game. “To be honest, my entire camp I kind of just worked on myself, improving every area that I could,” Northcutt said. “I’m very confident in my striking, but working on my wrestling, I’m at a wrestling camp grappling. But from what I see about Putri, she is a kickboxer like myself, stand-up background, and she’s very aggressive and likes to go forward, so I’m going to be expecting that aggression and waiting for her to come and get me.” “My training’s been completely different from my last fight,” Northcutt added. “I’ve switched teams. I’ve switched camps. I’m surrounded by entirely new coaches, entirely new teammates, working with some of the best in the world over at the Treigning Lab, and I think that everybody is actually going to see the results out there when I fight.” Voir l'article complet

  9. LONDON – At Thursday’s Bellator Europe 6 media day, all eyes were on two competitors not competing on this weekend’s card. Before the interview proceedings even started, a scuffle broke out between Bellator Europe 7 headliner James Gallagher and fellow Bellator featherweight Mike Kimbel. In a wild sequence of events, Gallagher allegedly walked up to Kimbel and punched him square in the face. Who alleges this? Gallagher himself. Why did Gallagher strike Kimbel? The brash Irish up-and-comer gave his side of the story when speaking to MMA Junkie. According to Gallagher, Kimbel had long talked trash about him. However, things escalated when Kimbel made a vulgar joke about Gallagher’s mother on Instagram. “He’s 2-4 or something like this, but he was talking a lot of (expletive) about me,” Gallagher said. “He was saying my name all the time, running me down, saying a lot of hateful, annoying things. But that’s cool. Say what you want about me. I understand the fight game. “… Then he took it a bit too far and took a screenshot of a picture off of my Instagram. I posted up a picture of me and my mum coming to visit me in Dublin. I brought her out for dinner, and we got a picture outside the restaurant. I was like, ‘Such a good weekend seeing my mother.’ And he screenshotted it and put it up and goes, ‘She should have swallowed the sperm cells that have made this.'” Talk all you want trying to hype a fight, Gallagher said. However, when you talk about somebody’s mother, that’s where he draws the line. Disrespecting women is the lowest of the low in Gallagher’s eyes. “For me as a young man, I don’t disrespect women like that,” Gallagher said. “That’s the lowest of the lowest. I would never disrespect any grown woman, nevermind my mother. Not only has he disrespected a woman that I know, he disrespected a woman that I love to bits. A woman that has made me the man I am. “And that was it. I didn’t say nothing else. I just left it at that. And he asked last month, could he come to Dublin. I said, ‘Yeah, of course you can come to Dublin. You might not get back out, though. You might not.’ Might’ve, might not, whatever. But when I saw him today for the first time, I didn’t say nothing else to him. I just walked up and smacked him with a left hook on the chin, and that was that. Don’t speak about my mother again.” Related WATCH: James Gallagher and Mike Kimbel get heated at Bellator Europe 6 media day Despite the heat between the two featherweights, Gallagher asserted he’d never fight Kimbel in an actual MMA bout. However, if Kimbel ever says anything else about Gallagher’s mother, the Irishman indicated fisticuffs will come outside the cage once again. “I will never ever fight Mike Kimbel in an MMA contest – ever,” Gallagher said. “We can leave it at that now. … If I’m somewhere, don’t come. Don’t come. Don’t be around me. Don’t say nothing about me. Get on your way, do your thing, and that’s it. There is no revenge that can satisfy me about what he said about my mother. “… The biggest (regret) is that I didn’t get him in a room on my own and that there was people here able to hold him back and hold me back. That’s the only regret that I’ve got. Nothing else. He’s a lucky, lucky man – a kid. A stupid little kid. He’s lucky.” Watch the video above to hear Gallagher’s full breakdown of the Kimbel altercation. Gallery James Gallagher def.

  10. Après il s’entrainait comme un gros débile. Depuis qu'il est sérieux il enchaine les victoires (7 victoires quand même et 5 finish si je ne me trompe pas). Je crois qu'il a level up. Je sais pas ce que ça donnera, mais s'il est gatekeeper, il est passé à gatekeeper de luxe. Et en poids léger être gatekeeper de luxe c'est comme être champions avec 12 défense de titre en poids lourd.

  14. It appears UFC strawweight champion Zhang Weili will be making her first title defense against former 115-pound queen Joanna Jedrzejczyk. At least that’s what UFC president Dana White alluded to when he said earlier this week that he’s very excited about the matchup, which has been brewing. Weili (20-1 MMA, 4-0 UFC) and Jedrzejczyk (16-3 MMA, 10-3 UFC) have not minced words toward each other. In a recent interview with South China Morning Post, Jedrzejczyk said she’s willing to take a canoe to China to beat the (expletive) out of Weili. Weili believes Jedrzejczyk’s emotions will cost her, as she envisions an early finish in their potential fight, just like when she won the title in 42 seconds by stopping Jessica Andrade in August. “I think she sounds very angry all the time, and her emotions will get her in trouble,” Weili told MMA Junkie in a direct message. “She is willing to fight me now, but there was a time she didn’t want to fight me, as well. I am ready anytime for battle. Just call my manager Mr. Brian (Butler) and the boss Dana, and we can fight next week.” “I am always looking to finish a fight as soon as I can so my opponent doesn’t have to endure long periods of damage,” Weili added. “I see the fight ending in one or two rounds. I think Joanna possesses great skill with her striking, along with good power, but I believe in my training and team to have me ready to beat her anywhere.” After losing her title to Rose Namajunas in 2017, Jedrzejczyk endured a rough stretch in her career, falling in a rematch to Namajunas, as well as a failed attempt to capture the flyweight title vs. Valentina Shevchenko. Jedrzejczyk had dropped three of her last four bouts, but she is back in pursuit of reclaiming her throne, defeating Michelle Waterson via unanimous decision last month in Tampa. Jedrzejczyk, who said she was promised a title shot with a win over Waterson, is determined to get her title back, but Weili is confident she will shut her down. “I think she is very angry and emotional, and I will calm her down,” Weili said.

  19. Dolly Clew, Cage Warriors The lightweight fight between Paddy Pimblett and former Ultimate Fighter competitor Joe Giannetti has been scrapped from Cage Warriors 111 just a day ahead of the event. The matchup fell apart after Giannetti failed to make weight, coming in at 163.7 pounds — 7.7 pounds over the lightweight limit for a non-title fight. For his part, Pimblett made weight at 154.9 pounds. Cage Warriors officials confirmed to MMA Fighting’s Peter Carroll that the fight was being pulled from the card taking place on Friday from London, England. It’s a disappointing end to what was a highly anticipated showdown between two lightweight prospects looking to make waves in this fight. Pimblett has been on the UFC’s radar for quite some time and he was hoping a win would secure another offer from the promotion to join the roster. Meanwhile, Giannetti was a part of The Ultimate Fighter season 27 making it all the way to the finals before falling to Mike Trizano. After Giannetti failed to make weight, he ended up in a heated exchange with Pimblett through a series of messages on Twitter. Giannetti claimed that he had already cut 25 pounds in 10 days after accepting the fight on short notice and he blasted Pimblett for not accepting a catchweight bout. “I missed weight today,” Giannetti wrote. “Their scale had me at 163 pounds. It’s not OK but I lost 25 pounds in the last 10 days for this opportunity, cut was going great, then my body just stopped sweating. Offered Paddy all my money and he threw a fit like and was talking sh8t like a [piece of sh*t]. “Tried being super respectful to Paddy and his team and explaining it’s my fault, but it is short notice, I’ll give them whatever they want, after the way they responded, I must say they’re all trash.” I missed weight today Their scale had me at 163lbs ITS NOT OKAY BUT I lost 25lbs in the last 10 days for this opportunity, cut was going great, then my body just stopped sweating offered Paddy all my money and he threw a fit like and was talkin shit like a pos, waiting on word — Joe Joe Giannetti (@Giannettimma) November 21, 2019 Pimblett fired back as the two continued going back and forth over social media. “So what an eventful weigh in,” Pimblett said. “I step on the scales at 154.7 like a true pro my opponent then steps on the scales at 163.8 and then sits down and starts eating and drinking immediately didn’t even consider going in the sauna when if he [would have] got to 160 pounds all this could have been avoided.” So what an eventful weigh in I step on the scales at 154.7 like a true pro my opponent then steps on the scales at 163.8& then sits down& starts eating& drinking immediately didn’t even consider going in the sauna when if he wudda got to 160lbs all this cud have been avoided.... — Paddy Pimblett (@PaddyTheBaddy) November 21, 2019 Ultimately, the fight was cancelled and pulled from the Cage Warriors 111 card on Friday.

  20. Paddy Pimblett will not be stepping into the cage on Friday after all. The former Cage Warriors champion was scheduled to take on Joe Giannetti in a lightweight bout at Cage Warriors 111 in London. The bout was scratched from the card after Giannetti missed weight Thursday, and Pimblett refused to accept the bout at a catchweight. Pimblett (14-3) weighed in at 154.7 pounds; Giannetti (8-2-1) tipped the scale at 163.8, more than seven pounds above the limit. Pimblett posted the news of the cancellation on social media, which the promotion later announced. So what an eventful weigh inI step on the scales at 154.7 like a true pro my opponent then steps on the scales at 163.8& then sits down& starts eating& drinking immediately didn’t even consider going in the sauna when if he wudda got to 160lbs all this cud have been avoided…. — Paddy Pimblett (@PaddyTheBaddy) November 21, 2019 So what an eventful weigh inI step on the scales at 154.7 like a true pro my opponent then steps on the scales at 163.8& then sits down& starts eating& drinking immediately didn’t even consider going in the sauna when if he wudda got to 160lbs all this cud have been avoided…. It looks like the fight is going to be off as he was unwilling to do any sort of compromise to make any sort of weight all the best to joe in the future but my career is too important to get fucked over like this but he’s known he was gonna miss& not batted an eyelid sorry ppl — Paddy Pimblett (@PaddyTheBaddy) November 21, 2019 It looks like the fight is going to be off as he was unwilling to do any sort of compromise to make any sort of weight all the best to joe in the future but my career is too important to get (expletive) over like this but he’s known he was gonna miss& not batted an eyelid sorry ppl Giannetti took the fight on short notice, replacing injured Donovan Desmae with just a little bit over a week until fight night. “The Ultimate Fighter” veteran was looking to build on his Keenan Raymond win in September. Giannetti is 2-1-1 since leaving the UFC in 2018. On the other hand, Pimblett was looking compete in MMA for the first time in 2019. The Liverpool native last fought in September 2018, losing to Soren Bak for the then-vacant Cage Warriors lightweight title. Cage Warriors 11 will go down Friday and stream on UFC Fight Pass.

  21. Miranda Granger (pictured) defeated Hannah Goldy in her UFC debut. | Vincent Carchietta-USA TODAY Sports Veronica Macedo was hoping to fight twice in five weeks in the UFC, and now she’s left with no fights at all, as she was forced out of a UFC Busan bout with Amanda Lemos. According to multiple sources, Lemos now faces Miranda Granger in a strawweight contest on Dec. 21. Macedo was already lined up to face Lemos in South Korea when she agreed to take on Ariane Lipski on 10 days’ notice at UFC Sao Paulo on Nov. 16, replacing Priscila Cachoeira. The day before the weigh-ins, though, Macedo was removed from the card with concussion-like symptoms. Macedo was still scheduled to fight Lemos next month, but ultimately got pulled from UFC Busan card as well since she’s currently hospitalized in Sao Paulo. Granger, who replaces the Venezuelan fighter on a month’s notice, was undefeated as an amateur (5-0) and has never lost as professional (7-0). Granger scored an unanimous decision victory over Hannah Goldy in her Octagon debut in August. Lemos (6-1-1), who lost her short-notice UFC debut against Leslie Smith at bantamweight in 2017, moves all the way back down to strawweight for UFC Busan. This is her first fight since serving a two-year USADA suspension for stanozolol. Afficher l’article complet
  22. Thursday’s edition of MMA Junkie Radio with hosts “Gorgeous” George and “Goze” is here! On episode 3,002 of the podcast, the guys break down the latest MMA news and notes. The rundown UFC women’s flyweight champion Valentina Shevchenko has her next title defense lined up, and it’ll happen against Katlyn Chookagian on Feb. 8 in Houston. We offer our thoughts on the matchup and ponder Shevchenko’s status as one of the all-time great female fighters. Did you see that Derrick Lewis is set to fight … Ilir Latifi? Latifi recently announced his move up to heavyweight from light heavyweight, and that’s one hell of an introduction to the division. Question: Would Thiago Santos have a better shot in a rematch with UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones than Alexander Gustafsson did his second time around? We discuss. Good news: Henry Cejudo is on schedule with his recovery to return soon. Bad news: We still have no idea which UFC title he’ll defend first – flyweight or bantamweight. Whose decision is it, and what will ultimately be decided? Paulo Costa ranted about UFC middleweight champion Israel Adesanya this week and called him a “p***y African.” That … might be racist? A potential fight between Jason Knight and Paulie Malignaggi in either boxing or bare knuckle: Is that something we want to see? Josh Thomson wants to run it back with Gilbert Melendez for a fourth time, and lobbies for Bellator to make it happen. Are we into it?
