  5. BUENOS AIRES, Argentina – Poliana Botelho is one day from attempting to spoil the long-awaited comeback of Cynthia Calvillo in the only female fight of a 12-bout card in at UFC Fight Night 140, the promotion’s first event in Argentina, just south of her native Brazil. All the attention on this fight will go to Calvillo, who missed weight Friday after coming off a nine-month suspension for marijuana use. But Botelho enjoyed a similar rest period and feels ready for her opponent. “I believe this doesn’t make any difference,” Botelho said during media day. “I had a long layoff of about seven months myself, so it is not a big deal. I know she was inactive, but I don’t think this will be a factor.” Related Video: UFC Fight Night 140 media day face-offs Factors, however, are aplenty for Calvillo, who stormed onto the UFC scene a couple of years ago and amassed an impressive winning streak before her forced time off. Botelho believes she knows them all. “She is a very complete fighter. She had about four fights in the UFC already, so she’s coming up very fast, and she’s very promising,” Botelho said. “But I am very well prepared for whatever happens in this fight, and you’re going to see a Poliana that no one has ever seen before. I am going to show her something that she has never seen.” When pressed for details, Botelho refuses to indulge in specifics and remains committed to the use of the third person in her colorful comments. “I am accomplishing things that I hadn’t been able to accomplish before, and I am going to feel more loose in the octagon,” Botelho said. “I had a few things that were stuck in me, and I have to release them in the octagon. I believe that, in this fight, I will be able to showcase all of this and show the whole world why Poliana is worthy of the UFC.” And she is right, in ways both known and not known to her. When asked about her role as a trailblazer on this FS1-televised card, being the very first female UFC fighter to climb into the cage on Saturday night and opening a whole new chapter in the history of the sport in this country rich in female boxing champions, the whole thing dawns on her. She cannot help but feel the emotion of the moment. “I didn’t know that. I am realizing that right now!” Botelho said as she rolled up her sleeve to reveal the goosebumps suddenly on her forearms and smiling broadly. “I am happy to learn this, and I am happy to be the first woman to be on the first UFC event ever (in Argentina). I know there was another fight planned that fell through, but I am very happy to hear this from you right now.” The potential inspiration that her performance could bring for the many young women who feel disenfranchised by all other major is palpable in Botelho, and she suddenly seems to feel that another major achievement in her career is within reach. All she needs to do now is bridge that impossible gap between Argentinian and Brazilian sports fans, forever confronted by their lifelong rivalry. Botelho feels she is up to the task, and she hopes to bring the two countries together in one love for MMA. “I have a lot of fans in Argentina, and I believe the fans will be on our side and will cheer on Brazil,” Botelho said. “I believe our rivalry is limited to soccer, and in the UFC they like us a lot. For this I believe they will be on my side on Saturday night.” For more on UFC Fight Night 140, check out the UFC Rumors section of the site. Gallery Poliana Botelho def.

  7. UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov was among the special guests at Brave CF and WFCA’s first collaborative effort Saturday in Bahrain. In the main event, Abdul-Kareem Al-Selwady claimed Lucas Martins’ lightweight title after the Brazilian appeared to injure his knee on the back of a takedown in the first round. Seconds before the takedown attempt, Al-Selwady landed a clean overhand right that sent the champion reeling. Referee Marc Goddard immediately spotted the Brazilian’s reaction to the knee injury as “The Pride of Palestine” landed the takedown. Martins later left the cage on a stretcher as Al-Selwady celebrated the quick victory, which marked his sixth win in a row. Stephen Loman had to escape a very tight guillotine in the second round of his title fight with Felipe Efrain before eventually recording his second successful bantamweight title defense. The bout ebbed and flowed over the 25 minutes with Loman being cheered on by the passionate Filipino diaspora in Bahrain. “The Sniper” managed to dictate where the fight took place a lot more than his opponent, which likely helped him to the unanimous decision nod on all of the judges scorecards. Velimurad Alkhasov would have been crowned Brave CF’s inaugural flyweight champion after his conclusive five-round showing against Marcel Adur, but the Russian did not have promotional gold wrapped around his waist due to his failure to make weight. Alkhasov took the Brazilian to the ground liberally over the five-rounds to claim a one-sided, if not slightly underwhelming, unanimous decision win. Cian Cowley made it two wins in as many outings with Brave when he stopped Hardeep Rai with grounded strikes in the first round. Despite Rai having a lot more experience in MMA, Cowley’s decorated Muay Thai career stood to him as he chopped the Englishman’s lead leg out from underneath him before stopping the fight on the deck. nasty low kicks and GNP Cian Cowley TKOs Hardeep Rai in 1R (Brave) — Jolassanda (@Jolassanda) November 16, 2018 Full results: Abdul-Kareem Al-Selwady def.

  9. Nick Diaz is coming back. That’s the plan, anyway, according to an report. And while Diaz and firm future plans don’t always see eye to eye, for now we might as well act like it’s really happening. At UFC 235 in March, after a little over four years out of the cage, Diaz could make his return in a welterweight bout in Las Vegas. Who will he face? None other than Jorge Masvidal, who gives roughly as many effs as Diaz does, that number being zero. As usual, with the enigmatic older Diaz brother come certain questions, the primary one being this: What are we trying to do here? Related The Break: On Nick Diaz being free, an unlikely cause to Cerrone-Jackson Wink feud and more There's one good option for Nick Diaz now that his legal woes are over: UFC revenge tour Is the goal to find out whether or not Diaz, who is 35 and hasn’t won a fight since 2011, still has it in him to be a title contender? Is it to just bounce him around from one fight to the next, hopefully having a little fun and increasing fan interest until the next time he’s suspended or else voluntarily recedes back into his own private world? Will we simply be happy to see him show up at all, since nothing is ever a given with this guy, especially if it involves staying eligible for several months and then getting on a plane at an appointed date and time? Just getting Diaz to accept a fight can be tricky business. He’s never particularly liked this sport and has never felt any need to lie to us about it. After yet another marijuana-fueled suspension, followed by legal issues stemming from a charge that was later dismissed, he could probably also use a paycheck right about now. Related Nick Diaz releases statement after case dismissal, says he's focused on MMA return Nick Diaz domestic assault case dismissed after Las Vegas DA declines to pursue charges And Masvidal’s not a bad opponent for him. He’ll shrug off Diaz’s weirdness and give him indifferent, easy malice in return. He can be baited into fun firefights on the feet but also has the all-around game and a willingness to use it that has always eluded Diaz. He’s also lost two straight, meaning we’re not giving up a rising contender on the cusp or sacrificing an aging legend just to have some stupid fun. Mostly what we seem to be trying to do is relive certain parts of the past. For better and worse, MMA seems more interesting when Diaz is around. He’s a fascinating ongoing character study. In an era of the sport when everyone else seems to be trying so hard to craft a persona, Diaz is one of the few who seems genuinely unaware that he even has one. Related Longtime welterweight Nick Diaz is pissed, wants UFC heavyweight champ Daniel Cormier Nick Diaz says he's fighting next year, insists he was 'framed' in domestic violence arrest Maybe that’s why it feels like it never even matters whether he wins or loses. That’s why he could drop a decision for the interim title and still fight for the actual title in his very next bout. It’s why he could follow that up with a bout against a middleweight great, during which he laid down in the cage when he was unsatisfied by the pace of the action. We want Diaz around because we want the show and the experience. We want him to be himself, spouting bizarre bits of wisdom that somehow make no sense right up until they snap into place and make almost too much sense. We want him to give us that chaotic brand of fun, even if he hates every minute of it. Every once in a while, he needs the money or the rush or the relevance just enough to indulge us. Who knows for how much longer. For more on UFC 235, visit the UFC Rumors section of the site. Gallery Photos: Best of Nick Diaz view 20 images Voir l'article complet

  11. Cody McKenzie has a different version of what happened regarding the events that led to him receiving a lengthy suspension from the Nevada Athletic Commission (NAC). And some accusations of his own to boot. On Wednesday, the former UFC fighter was handed a four-year suspension stemming from an incident on Sept. 14 in which he submitted a fake urine sample to the commission shortly before he was scheduled to walk out for a headlining bout at a Tuff-N-Uff event in Las Vegas. The fight was subsequently canceled, and McKenzie’s case was set to be resolved at a later date. That date was to be Oct. 24, but McKenzie told MMA Fighting that his case was pushed back so that the commission could use that meeting to rule on the extension of temporary suspensions for Khabib Nurmagomedov and Conor McGregor regarding their involvement in the post-main event brawl at UFC 229. McKenzie did not show up at the rescheduled hearing on Nov. 14, and the commission passed a motion to “find the respondent in default” and proceed without him. McKenzie admitted that he lost track of messages sent to him in between the original hearing date and the rescheduled one, but he had larger issues with the commission beyond his hearing being moved. According to McKenzie, the commission acted inappropriately when asking him to submit a test Sept. 14, particularly one official who McKenzie claims exposed himself when McKenzie refused to let officials observe him urinating. He was already put off by the commission demanding a last-minute urine sample and was shocked when the situation allegedly escalated in bizarre fashion. “They said if I didn’t piss in a cup right before my fight — literally I was warming up — my fight was about to happen in five minutes and they’re yelling at me, telling me I need to take the piss test and I’m like, ‘No, I can’t take a piss right now. I’m warming up for my fight. I’ve never f*ckin’ taken a piss in my life before a fight. I’ve fought for 15 years. Leave me alone,’” McKenzie told MMA Fighting. “We start fighting back and forth, they started saying we’re not going to let you fight unless you f*ckin’ piss in the cup. So I f*ckin’ just went in the bathroom and poured something in the cup and it was funny because I was telling them I wasn’t going to let them watch me pee. “And one of the [commission inspectors] whipped out his f*ckin’ dick, ‘cause he’s like, ‘Oh, it’s not that f*ckin’ hard.’ And he takes his dick out and shakes his dick at me. I was like, ‘Dude, that’s f*ckin’ sexual harassment.’ You can’t do that. That’s bullshit, you know? There was five or six witnesses standing right there. Nothing ever came out about it. I talked to the commission about it countless times, they just keep saying there’s an investigation going on, which I haven’t heard a thing about it, they won’t talk to me about any of it. I’m like, ‘You guys are ridiculous. You guys are f*ckin’ crazy.’ That’s nuts to me. You don’t pull your dick out and shake it at somebody, especially in this day and age.” McKenzie claims there were several witnesses in the room, all affiliated with the commission, who saw the official’s actions. Because of this, McKenzie doesn’t expect the commission to do anything about the situation despite him having sent several complaints via e-mail. “Backstage, there was probably six of us standing around and this older guy got all pissed at me because I said I wasn’t going to piss right in front of people because I never have had to before and he got all mad at me and he whipped out his dick and shook it at me,” McKenzie said. “And not for a short amount of time. He was yelling at me while he’s shaking his dick at me. “They haven’t fired the guy that I’ve heard of, I haven’t heard of any repercussions coming their way. It’s just a bunch of bullshit. The Nevada State Athletic Commission’s just a joke.” Nevada commission executive director Bob Bennett told MMA Fighting on Friday that McKenzie’s version of events is “not accurate,” but the NAC is currently investigating the situation while the inspector in question sits out events. “[McKenzie’s] allegations are not accurate,” Bennett said. “We’re currently looking into the matter accordingly. At the current time, that inspector is no longer working events for us.” The NAC’s eventual ruling on McKenzie’s punishment was motivated by what they perceived to be “aggravating circumstances” and “disregard for protocol” in regards to how McKenzie handled the situation Sept. 14 and his failure to communicate with the commission in the time since then. McKenzie was caught providing a fake urine sample, which he claims to have done only because the commission demanded that he have one or the fight would be called off. He adds that it was his understanding that the commission promised him not to reveal any details of the test to the public. McKenzie denies purposely avoiding the test to hide the presence of any banned substances in his system, noting that while he has smoked marijuana in the past, his current employment forces him to undergo regular drug tests. He simply could not pee when asked. “I’m just mad at the commission,” McKenzie said. “We’ve been going back-and-forth for a while. They promised me that if I showed them the fake pee that they wouldn’t tell the media. That it wouldn’t get out, that it would just be between us. They lied to me there. They told me I’d be able to fight if I pulled it out. They lied to me up and down. It was just a bunch of BS that was going on there. “The commission is out of control. They’re terrible. They say they’re here for our safety, but they’ve let me get ripped off my entire career.” Esther Lin, MMA Fighting Cody McKenzie celebrates what would be his last UFC victory, a unanimous decision win over Leonard Garcia in Newark, N.J., on April 27, 2013Bennett said McKenzie would have never been promised any such things. Because commissions are run by the state, most disciplinary information is public record, including details of each case. The length of the suspension is of little concern for McKenzie, who turns 31 in December. His Tuff-N-Uff bout was supposed to be the last of his 11-year career, and he’d planned to propose to his girlfriend in the cage following his fight (with no fight, he later made the proposal at a bar. She said yes, he said). After that, he was going to focus on moving into his new house back in Washington and the seven-day work week that he maintains to pay the bills. “That was going to be my last fight ever,” McKenzie said. “That was my retirement fight. I haven’t trained for five years for a fight. I work jobs now to keep a roof over my family’s head, I don’t have time to train all the time anymore. There’s no money in it. “I fought Chad Mendes, the No. 1 ranked guy in the world at the MGM Grand and made 10 grand. What’s the point, you know? I fought in The Ultimate Fighter and fought three guys back-to-back and made $8,000 when I was already 28 grand in debt. There’s no money in the sport, there’s no point in doing it for me anymore. I was a fan favorite, I had a big fan base, but that’s all I had. I didn’t have any money coming my way ever, so I just gave up on the sport about five or six years ago and my record shows it.” What really rattled McKenzie, who heads into retirement with a 16-11 pro record, was how rapidly the details of his suspension spread and the implications that they had for his reputation. “It spread like wildfire,” McKenzie said. “It was on the headline f*cking page of f*cking everything. Everything I read when I type my name in came up, ‘F*cking failed.’ ‘Failed.’ ‘Fake pee.’ ‘He’s hiding stuff.’ “Does it f*cking look like I do steroids? Hell no. I’ve never done steroids in my life. Like the commission cares. If you do steroids, you don’t even get in trouble.” McKenzie estimates that he would have made $14,000 for his Tuff-N-Uff fight, but instead he left that show empty-handed and actually has been ordered by the NAC to pay almost $950 in attorney reimbursement fees. It’s a bitter pill to swallow for McKenzie, who sounds like he only wants to move on from this mess, and that includes the alleged inappropriate behavior of the offending official Sept. 14. Stating that he doesn’t believe in suing people, McKenzie said that he does not plan to press charges should more information come to light and that he only hopes that the official receives some sort of admonishment for his actions. “I wish there was a commission to commission the commission,” said McKenzie, not only in regards to the official in question, but what he perceives to be the NAC’s mistreatment of fighters in general. Despite all that, McKenzie wanted to make it clear that he loves the sport of MMA and loves fighting, but he could not deal with the politics anymore. “I fought a lot of my heroes in the sport,” he said, before reiterating that he is comfortable moving on from competition. Even as he stumbled late in his career, the former UFC standout is aware that he has retained a loyal following, and when asked why he felt this was the case, he posited that the no-nonsense attitude that likely created a wedge between himself and officials is the same that drew a cult following to him. “I don’t sugarcoat anything, I don’t lie, I’m not one to bullshit, I tell it how it is and I guess people like that,” McKenzie said. “It’s how I’ve always been and yeah, it hasn’t done me the best in my career, but in life I’m just fine. I get by, I’ll always get by, because I work hard. I know I’ll always get by so I’m going to say what I need to say and I tell the truth, I tell it how it is. So I guess there’s just some people out there who believe in what I say and I hope they do, because I’m not bullshitting. “I really believe that the commission does absolutely nothing. I’ve been fighting before there was all these commissions in each state and guess what? We all followed the same rules as we follow now. They just came in when there was money and they want a chunk of it and they fine fighters for anything and they do whatever they need to do to get money from these fighters who barely have any money. And it sucks.” Additional reporting by Marc Raimondi. Afficher l’article complet

  14. Only one fighter missed weight at Friday morning’s UFC Argentina official weigh-ins, but it was a scary sight — and a serious reminder of the dangers of extreme weight cutting. Strawweight contender Cynthia Calvillo was barely able to stand on the scale when she weighed in at 118 pounds at Friday’s weigh-ins, two pounds over the limit for her scheduled fight against Poliana Botelho. Nonetheless, the Brazilian MMA Athletic Commission (CABMMA) medical team evaluated Calvillo and cleared her to compete on Saturday at UFC Argentina. Calvillo will be fined 20 percent of her purse for the weigh-in miss, but the frightening sight of her on the scale prompted plenty of concern from the pros on Twitter. This is NOT ok — Jessica Jag Aguilar (@jagatt) November 16, 2018 The #1 most dangerous thing in the sport of WMMA is extreme weight cutting. — #CyborgNation #UFC232 (@criscyborg) November 16, 2018 I put a girl in the hospital before cutting weight. It wasn't through lack of effort. @veronicafights — Justin Buchholz (@JustinBuchholz) November 16, 2018 It’s not about the weight , it’s about being professional and arriving on the target ! Making weight is a part of the job period ! — patrick cote (@patrick_cote) November 16, 2018 It’s hard because she didn’t do her job month before by keeping the weight in a good range so@now she suffer for nothing ! Making weight is part of being professional period ! — patrick cote (@patrick_cote) November 16, 2018 Cutting weight is never fun . But you have to prepare your body for that drastic situation. When you do it right with the good knowledge, you should make weight . I was cutting 20-23 pounds in 18hours all the time and never missed the target ! — patrick cote (@patrick_cote) November 16, 2018 If you guys don’t know how the cutting weight process goes in the UFC ect. what I have seen: Someone cut from 170 down to 125 .. they get to make weight a day before weigh ins and they weigh 150 by fight night .So if you are 150 and someone actually weighs 125 is that cheating? — Jarred Brooks (@The_monkeygod) November 16, 2018 There is an advantage they should weigh in same day in the AM fight at night. You can only gain so much weight back in a couple of hrs and if you are unfit to fight that day you shouldn’t fight in that weight — Jarred Brooks (@The_monkeygod) November 16, 2018 #unsafeworkingconditions — Leslie Smith (@LeslieSmith_GF) November 16, 2018 I agree she put herself in the situation but I also think the UFC could step up their training and supervision of weight cuts to make it safer. Since she is fighting for them it is at their discretion to let the fight go on and its dangerous to let a depleted fighter fight — Leslie Smith (@LeslieSmith_GF) November 16, 2018 Management will always lean toward the revenue meaning try to make the fight regardless. A union health and safety committee could be present at all cards and weigh-ins to specifically focus on the health and well being of the fighter and to speak for them with a collective voice — Lucas Middlebrook (@lkmiddleb) November 16, 2018 I feel a little bit sick watching that.

  16. Every UFC Fight Night 140 is almost here, which means it’s time to conduct the most important analysis of any fight week by taking a look at all the nicknames on the card. These were taken from and cross-referenced with Tapology, Sherdog, Wikipedia – the usual suspects. 19. (tie) Neil Magny: ??? Cynthia Calvillo: ??? Poliana Botelho: ??? Johnny Walker: ??? Humberto Bandenay: ??? Devin Powell: ??? No known nicknames for this bunch. Though, someone on Wikipedia has apparently dubbed Magny “Black Ernie,” which I don’t love, but at least they’re trying. Then there’s Johnny Walker, who presents us with so many possibilities (“Smooth” Johnny Walker? “Neat” Johnny Walker?) and still nothing. Fine, we get it, some people hate fun. Whatever. 18. Ian Heinisch: The Hurricane Jeez, another Hurricane? Well, at least there wasn’t a famous boxer by that name who became the subject of a Bob Dylan song (“Hurricane”) as well as a Denzel Washington biopic (“The Hurricane”). Because then the nickname might really feel played out. 17. Alexandre Pantoja: The Cannibal This takes this whole “grrr look how mean and possibly crazy I am” thing too far, if you ask me. I mean, seriously, “The Cannibal”? There’s no way to misread that. You’re saying you eat human flesh. It doesn’t inspire fear so much as revulsion. How are we supposed to hear that nickname and then look at you and not picture you roasting and eating another human being? It’s too much, Alexandre. Just too much. 16. Anderson dos Santos: Berinja Sorry, I’m still hung up on the name Anderson dos Santos, which sounds like a fake Brazilian name that someone would come up with if their only exposure to Brazilian culture was MMA. “Sure, I’m Brazilian … my name is … Anderson, uh, Dos Santos. Yeah, that’s it.” 1 2 3 …4Voir l'article complet

    [UFC] Dopage et suspension des combattants

    Sean O'Malley a pris une suspension de 6 mois de la part de l'USADA finalement. Il avait été contrôlé positif à l'Ostarine avant son combat lors de l'UFC 229 mais l'USADA a estimé qu'il avait très rapidement fourni les boîtes des produits ayant pu contenir cette substance et qu'il s'était montré très coopératif. De ce fait, au lieu d'une suspension d'un an qui était prévu, il n'a pris que 6 mois de suspension et pourra effectuer son retour à partir du 6 mars 2019.

  20. BUENOS AIRES, Argentina – She exploded onto the UFC scene, racking up three wins in four months and always leaving the fans wanting more. But then, disaster struck. And adding salt to the wound of her first loss, she tested positive for marijuana and was suspended nine months. On top of that, Cynthia Calvillo missed the strawweight limit by two pounds Friday during official weigh-ins, where she needed physical assistance to make it to the scale and struggled to remain on her feet while coming in at 118 pounds. Her UFC Fight Night 140 bout with Poliana Botelho is still on, though, as Calvillo will be fined 20 percent of her purse. But still, it’s a new day in a new country. During media day Thursday, Calvillo expressed how ready she was to return to the cage. And her anxiety was palpable in every word she utters. Related Video: UFC Fight Night 140 media day face-offs “I am extremely excited. I cannot wait to showcase my skills,” Calvillo said during media day. “I’ve been training really hard, and I am looking forward to make the whole Latin community proud. I trained very hard, and I take this very seriously. I worked on all the aspects of the MMA game – the ground game and the wrestling, as well.” UFC Fight Night 140 takes place at Parque Roca Arena. The event airs on FS1 following early prelims on UFC Fight Pass. Nine months is a long time for anyone to sit on the sidelines after such a blitzkrieg like the one that put Calvillo (6-1 MMA, 3-1 UFC) on everyone’s radar. But it’s also a good time to straighten a few things up. “For sure,” Calvillo said. “Last year I was just in a fight-by-fight mentality, I was taking fight by fight and never really had time to settle in. My body still felt good, but I think this (suspension) helped my body mentally and physically. I allowed myself to sit back. Your mind needs a break from being at (training) camp non-stop. It was good to have that, and it was good to just train and enjoy, just work on all my tools. And I feel like I am definitely way better as a fighter than I was last year. I am excited to be back.” Of course, for a workaholic like Calvillo, it’s hard to go back to a place she never left. “For me, this is a lifestyle. The work never stops. This is my job. So even though I didn’t have a fight scheduled I was always at ‘the office,’ on the mats,” Calvillo said. “I was training on mitts and on the mats harder than most people do when they’re in camp, in in my offseason. For me, there’s no such thing as an offseason. My only holiday is the day of the fight, and that’s it.” Holiday or not, it’s difficult to train for a fight that may or may not happen several months down the road, and Calvillo used the time to work on other things, as well. Related UFC Fight Night 140 pre-event facts: Neil Magny creeps up on legends in record books “I would say my mental aspect, and my athleticism,” said Calvillo, when pressed for a list of improvements. “Every fighter, when you start, you think that (training) is never enough, so just as working hard is important, your recovery is important, mentally and physically. And I think that was a part of my game. Last year I was a new girl in the UFC, but now I feel like I am more mature and experienced. So yeah, I think I am a better fighter, mentally and physically.” The task of facing another young and hungry foe in Botelho (7-1 MMA, 2-0 UFC) was also a subject of analysis during her prolonged layoff. “I know she likes to strike, she’s heavy-handed. She’s 7-1, got six knockouts. She is a dangerous Brazilian, and she loves to fight,” Calvillo said. “I expect the best from her, and that excites me and motivates me to train harder. So I am expecting her to bring it and just moving forward, and I am ready for it all.” Cynthia Calvillo at UFC 219 weigh-ins. When she steps into the octagon Saturday, Calvillo will be making history by becoming the first female fighter, along with her rival, to set foot in a cage in Argentina, a country with a rich history of female combat sports athletes. And she’ll be doing it in foreign territory, although hoping to be on the right side of the Argentina-Brazil rivalry to earn the favor of the crowd. “We are the only female fight on the card. Of course, I think that they might lean towards me more because of the rivalry, but I just hope that they support all of us and enjoy the fights, hopefully we could be the ‘Fight of the Night,’” Calvillo said. As much as she wants to put on a show, she doesn’t seem to anticipate much of it. “I don’t see (the fight) going past the first round,” Calvillo said. “I think we’re both feisty women. I have been out of the cage for a long time, and I am so hungry and ready to get in there, and I know she likes to go for the finish, so expect a really good fight. Do not blink. It’s probably not going to go past the first round.” For more on UFC Fight Night 140, check out the UFC Rumors section of the site. Voir l'article complet
  21. Parents come up with all kinds of terms of endearment for their children, but Erin Blanchfield’s given nickname that might not seem so flattering at first. “Cold Blooded.” That’s the moniker the 19-year-old Blanchfield (2-0) carries with her when she competes in combat sports, and the one she will hear announced Friday when she steps into the cage for her third pro MMA bout at Invicta FC 32 at Firelake Arena in Shawnee, Okla., where she will fight fellow teenager Kay Hansen in a flyweight bout. While anyone who’s seen Blanchfield fight can tell you why “Cold Blooded” is a good fit for her, it was her father who made the chilling nickname official. “That actually came from my dad. Whenever I fight I always have a very plain face, like a poker face, and I just go in there and do what I have to do,” Blanchfield told MMA Fighting. “So he always thought that it was very cold-blooded and it kind of matched the last name, like, Erin ‘Cold Blooded’ Blanchfield, and it stuck.” Gracing Blanchfield with a nickname was just one way in which Blanchfield’s father and the rest of her family have shown support for her. It was her mom who got her involved in combat sports in the first place, signing her up for an introductory jiu-jitsu class at the age of seven. Two years later, Blanchfield was participating in kickboxing and grappling competitions. Even when Blanchfield made the decision at age 12 that she wanted to start on the path to becoming a pro fighter, her family backed her all the way. By that time there were strong examples of female fighters she could follow and she specifically mentions pointing to Ronda Rousey and Miesha Tate’s exploits in Strikeforce as evidence that this was a viable career choice. After rising through the ranks competing at NAGA and Grapplers Quest events, Blanchfield burst onto the scene in July of last year by conquering a 16-woman tournament at EBI 12, which aired on UFC Fight Pass. Blanchfield calls it “the biggest thing I’d ever done” and it was likely the most lucrative too as the win earned the then-18-year-old a $10,000 check in addition to a flyweight grappling title. If that wasn’t enough, she got to hear her name called by Bruce Buffer, the voice of the UFC, the promotion that she hopes to someday be a champion in. “I didn’t know he was gonna be there, that was awesome,” said Blanchfield. In March, Blanchfield kicked off her pro career in earnest, picking up a first-round doctor stoppage win over Whittany Pyles, then winning a split decision against Brittney Cloudy in her Invicta FC debut four months later. Over the course of three competitive rounds, Blanchfield stayed cool and composed against an opponent nine years her senior who had a considerable experience advantage in the amateur MMA ranks. Invicta FC Erin Blanchfield (red gloves) works for a submission against Brittney Cloudy (blue gloves) at Invicta FC 30 on July 21“While I’m competing, I try to stay calm,” said Blanchfield. “I don’t try to get overly excited or frustrated. Afterwards, you can see the relief on my face when I won that split decision, but during a fight, during any type of competition I always try to stay very level-headed and do what I have to do. Because I feel like too much emotion, you’ll mess up and it’s just not good.” It helps that Blanchfield is regularly tested at the Renzo Gracie Academy in New York, where she trains with the likes of MMA veterans Katlyn Chookagian and DeAnna Bennett. She also spends time at Silver Fox BJJ and MK Muay Thai and is currently a full-time biology major at Montclair State University, all back in her native New Jersey. A proud pupil of esteemed grappling coach John Danaher, it’s Blanchfield’s jiu-jitsu lineage that has her most excited about what Hansen will bring to their Invicta FC 32 matchup. Hansen, who trains out of 10th Planet Jiu Jitsu in California, called Blanchfield out after a win at Invicta FC 31, setting up a West coast vs. East coast battle between two decorated gyms. “I like the aspect that we’re both 19-year-olds, so we’re both up-and-coming prospects so everyone wants to see us fight to see how we could do,” said Blanchfield. “And also the whole Danaher Death Squad vs. 10th Planet, because you haven’t seen that really in the MMA world yet, so you’ll be able to see it now.” Afficher l’article complet

  24. The UFC makes its first trip to Argentina on Saturday for UFC Fight Night 140. As is often the case when the promotion debuts in a new market, a local fighter participates in the headlining the bout. On this card, that fighter is surging slugger Santiago Ponzinibbio. Victorious in his past six fights, Ponzinibbio, who has three knockout wins during his winning streak, faces the toughest test of his UFC career when he matches up against Neil Magny in a welterweight scrap. In the co-main event, Ricardo Lamas and Darren Elkins meet in a featherweight matchup. UFC Fight Night 140 takes place Saturday at Parque Roca Arena in Buenos Aires. The card airs on FS1 following early prelims on UFC Fight Pass. Here are nine reasons to watch the event. 1. Lookin’ for a title fight Ponzinibbio broke into the welterweight rankings with his December win over Mike Perry. That victory was his sixth straight triumph under the UFC banner. Now ranked No. 15 according to the USA TODAY Sports/MMAjunkie MMA welterweight rankings, the 32-year-old thinks that a win against the No. 12-ranked Magny will be enough to get him a title shot. “If I win this fight, it will be seven wins in a row, 15 fights for the company, amounting to a total of 13 wins, numerous knockouts,” Ponzinibbio told MMAjunkie. “I would be ready to fight for a title. I would deserve it. I would be ready.” Magny (21-6 MMA, 14-5 UFC), who is one year younger than Ponzinibbio (26-3 MMA, 8-2 UFC) doesn’t have the unbeaten streak that his opponent has, but he has fought much tougher competition. Magny has wins over former UFC champions Carlos Condit and Johny Hendricks as well as a victory over ex-Bellator middleweight champ Hector Lombard. He is, without a doubt, the most well-rounded and accomplished fighter Ponzinibbio has faced in his career. Like Ponzinibbio, Magny is approaching this bout as the next step to a title shot. “2019 is my year to get that title shot and win it,” said Magny. “And this road starts this Saturday against Santiago.” Magny is on a two-fight winning streak. His most recent win was a May knockout of Craig White, who stepped in on short notice to replace the injured Gunnar Nelson. 2. Staying Alive In October 2015, Elkins was coming off a break of nearly a year. At the time, he was 12 fights into his UFC career and had a record of 8-4. He was also an honorable mention in the featherweight rankings. Then, between UFC Fight Night 76 and UFC Fight Night 124, Elkins went on a tear. He won six straight fights and climbed to No. 6 in the divisional rankings. That winning streak, the second longest of Elkins’ career, came to an end in July when he dropped a decision to Alexander Volkanovski. Today, Elkins (24-6 MMA, 14-5 UFC) is the No. 8 ranked fighter at 145 pounds. The 34-year-old faces Ricardo Lamas (18-7 MMA, 9-5 UFC), who is an honorable mention in the divisional rankings, at UFC Fight Night 140. Lamas has struggled to find traction since his 2014 unanimous decision loss to then-champion Jose Aldo. Lamas, who was ranked No. 3 in the division when he faced Aldo, has gone 5-4 since he lost his bid to gain the title. The 36-year-old has been unable to string together more than two victories and is currently on the first losing skid of his career with defeats to Josh Emmett and Mirsad Bektic in his past two outings. The 145-pound division has experienced an influx of new blood over the past few years and that means veterans like Elkins and Lamas are under a great deal of pressure to show that they still belong among the elite of the weight class. Expect these two to do anything they can to prove they can continue to compete at the highest levels of the weight class. 3. A new outlook If you’re in the mood for a slugfest, then you might want to check out the light heavyweight bout between Khalil Rountree (7-2 MMA, 3-2 UFC) and Johnny Walker (14-3 MMA, 0-0 UFC). Between them, the two have 16 knockout wins. Rountree is coming off a 96-second KO of Gokhan Saki. The win earned Rountree the first fight-night bonus of his UFC career. After his upset victory, Rountree said that the criticism he heard from fans before the bout made him change his approach to the fight game. “From the moment this fight got announced, I’ve taken so much crap online, which was kind of shocking,” Rountree said after his victory. “It didn’t motivate me – it just made this fight very personal for me. I wanted to go out there and fight my best fight, be the best me. I wanted to show the world what I was all about. And I did.” Rountree wanted a top-15 opponent after his stoppage of Saki. Instead, he is matched up against UFC newcomer Walker, who earned his way into the UFC with a decision win over Henrique da Silva on the Dana White’s Contender Series Brazil 2 card. The fight was the first time Walker went the distance. 1 2 …3Voir l'article complet
