  2. Two-division champion Amanda Nunes (19-4) defends her featherweight title against Felicia Spencer (8-1) in the main event of UFC 250 on Saturday, June 6.
  3. Cody Garbrandt | Esther Lin, MMA Fighting Cody Garbrandt is only nine fights into his UFC career but he’s already experienced the highest highs and the lowest lows. The 28-year-old Ohio native burst on the scene when he joined the roster back in 2015 as one of the hottest bantamweight prospects in the sport. He won his first five fights in blistering fashion with four TKO’s along the way before he was matched up with bantamweight champion Dominick Cruz. On that night, Garbrandt put on a performance of a lifetime as he dismantled arguably the greatest 135-pound fighter of all time over five rounds. He was crowned champion and it appeared Garbrandt was on his way to becoming one of the UFC’s next superstars. And then the bottom fell out. Garbrandt lost his title in his first defense after engaging in a fire fight with former teammate T.J. Dillashaw. 10 months later, he suffered the same fate when he fell to Dillashaw for a second consecutive time by TKO. A third straight loss in a “Fight of the Night” against Pedro Munhoz not only put Garbrandt out of the title picture but it left many wondering if the former bantamweight champion had already reached his expiration date. Now 15 months following his last fight, Garbrandt is finally scheduled to make his return at UFC 250 where he faces Raphael Assuncao in the co-main event. It’s been a long road traveled in a relatively short amount of time but despite those setbacks, Garbrandt never doubted for a second that he’d be back. “I don’t think I was ever in a mindset where I don’t want to fight cause I feel like every time that I tried to draw away from fighting, I was always pulled back in,” Garbrandt explained when speaking to MMA Fighting. “Without fighting, I don’t think I would be as happy in this life. “It’s not an option for me [to stop fighting]. I want to fight. I love to fight. It’s about finding that passion, that drive. Keeping that drive alive. Keeping that hunger alive.” Garbrandt understood that it’s normal to be reactionary and see out change after suffering three losses in a row. That’s why he sought out a new training camp with the Ohio native traveling to New Jersey to work with head coach Mark Henry and his team. That said, Garbrandt was still working side-by-side with his training partners and coaches at Team Alpha Male in Sacramento, which has been his home since before he arrived in the UFC. “I just needed for me, first and foremost, to get out of my comfort zone and go rekindle that love for fighting,” Garbrandt said. “I don’t know if I was going through the motions or if it was just the same thing but I needed a switch up. “The only way that I could truly test myself was get out of my comfort zone, in a way that I’m away from my family, that comfort that you build inside of your life.” Changes were in order but Garbrandt also understands that his last three losses were largely predicated on mistakes made rather than an inability to deal with opponents like Dillashaw or Munhoz. “I don’t need to reinvent the wheel,” Garbrandt said. “It was little things that I necessarily wasn’t doing or wasn’t knowing that I was doing in terms of technical errors or things I was doing off rhythm or not off rhythm. They just broke me down to my strengths, my weaknesses and it’s been clicking. “I’m obsessed with this sport. I’m obsessed with getting better. I’m obsessed with winning. Losing’s part of it. It challenges you to grow.” Garbrandt won’t lie and say it was easy to get past the losses but his confidence wasn’t rattled, which was probably the most important component in his comeback. “When I’m on, no one in the world can beat me,” Garbrandt said. “I truly believe I’ve corrected a lot of my errors that I needed to correct. When I’m at peace with myself, I can cause a lot of chaos inside that octagon because I know that my life is good, it’s in order and I can let that savagery out in the octagon and that’s what I’m prepared to do.” In some ways, Garbrandt might be starting on the ground floor again as he prepares to face Assuncao this weekend. He’s no longer ranked in the top five of the bantamweight division and another shot at the title isn’t in his immediate future. Of course, Garbrandt still as aspirations about reaching the top of his weight class again. It might just take a little time to get there but he’s got plenty of that. “For me, I’m in the sport to be the best,” Garbrandt said. “It was never chasing money. I never even thought of money until I got money. It was like ‘oh sh*t I won some fights and here’s some money.’ That’s cool, that’s a plus side to it but money was never the motivating factor. It was always being the best. That’s my quest to get back to the title. I wanted to be the best in the world. I worked towards that. Dreamed of that. That was what was pushing me. This sport is a marathon, not a sprint. Just like life. “I’ve battled my demons. I’m here to take the throne again. Whoever that is when my time comes for another title shot, I’ll be ready. I’m going to capitalize on it. I’m going to hold onto this title until it’s time to walk away from this sport. Afficher l’article complet

  6. Felicia Spencer’s last outing saw her emerge as a top contender for the UFC women’s featherweight title with a dominant display in Norfolk, Virginia. Former Invicta FC featherweight champion Spencer (8-1 MMA, 2-1 UFC) faced Zarah Fairn in the co-main event of UFC on ESPN+ 27 on February 29. Despite being fresh off her first career loss to former UFC 145-pound champ Cris Cyborg, Spencer was a massive betting favorite heading into her fight with Fairn, and she proved the oddsmakers right with a powerful display to catapult herself into title contention. Fairn started out lively and landed some solid strikes, but around a minute and a half into the fight, Spencer took control. The “Feenom” took the fight to the ground and Fairn simply had no answer. Spencer transitioned to full mount immediately before raining down a barrage of punches and elbows until the referee stopped the fight. The Canadian’s victory means she will now step up to challenge featherweight champion Amanda Nunes at UFC 250. UFC 250 takes place Saturday at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas. The main card airs on pay-per-view following prelims on ESPN and early prelims on UFC Fight Pass/ESPN+. Before she faces Nunes, relive Spencer’s finish over Fairn in the video above.

  7. Esther Lin, MMA Fighting This past weekend, Tyron Woodley was dominated by Gilbert Burns at UFC on ESPN 9. It was such a one-sided performance that even Woodley was not terribly upset by it, saying he had “a weird piece for someone who just got they ass whooped.” It was the second dreadful performance from Woodley in a row, following his title-losing showing against Kamaru Usman at UFC 235 in 2019, and now the wolves are coming out for the former welterweight champion. Speaking yesterday with Submission Radio, former UFC interim welterweight champion and foil for Woodley, Colby Covington, took some time to revel in the downfall of his longtime rival. “Let’s start off by having a moment of silence for Woodley’s career,” Covington began. “Hold on just one second. Moment of silence, (pours liquid out of his coffee mug onto the floor). That’s Woodley’s career going down the drain. Just like I told you guys, he’s washed up. He don’t want to fight no more, he’s TMZ Woodley. He’s out there rapping making songs about me, hurting people’s ear drums. “Who called it? I said he’s washed up. I said he’s 40 years old. He’s a 40 year old virgin. He doesn’t want to fight anymore. All he did was show up for a paycheck, so I figured we’d have a moment of silence for him and I’d pour out a beer for his career and just like his career, it went right down the drain.” Woodley and Covington have spent the better part of three years trash-talking one another and posturing for a fight that never came. First, Woodley and Covington were expected to face one another after Covington won an interim title in 2018, but Covington was unavailable and instead, Woodley defended against Darren Till. Then Covington was against seemingly on tap to face Woodley next but instead, was passed over for Kamaru Usman, reportedly due to contract negotiations from Covington. Usman, of course went on to defeat Woodley but the rivalry matchup was again in discussion as a short-notice replacement fight when the coronavirus began upending the best-laid plans of the UFC. Instead, Woodley faced Burns and now, it seems like he and Covington will never fight, something “Chaos” says is what Woodley wanted all along. “In my opinion, business goes on,” Covington said about losing the fight with Woodley. “It sucks. I built that fight for three or four years. I was begging to fight that guy on five days’ notice because I know how washed up he is. He never wanted to fight me, plain and simple. Even when he was the champion and I had the interim title, he was begging to fight lightweights, he was begging to fight anybody but me, and I’m the first guy to scare the champion into elective shoulder surgery. The guy’s been scared of me since day one. I think people just found out how much I am a man of my word. Every time I say something, it’s the truth. Maybe it’s the brutal, honest truth, but it’s still the truth. He ducked me his whole career and that’s that. He can go and know that he was a coward. He didn’t want to fight the best guys in the division. “The thing is, he’s happy now. He got these two losses out of the way and he got these paychecks, but you know what? Woodley didn’t have to lose to me so he can ride off into the sunset and go to his retirement home and be happy that he doesn’t have to deal with the psychiatric (treatment) that he would have had to deal with if he would have had to fight me. So he’s thankful and he’s lucky. He dodged a bullet.” But Woodley’s loss to Gilbert Burns didn’t just take that potential fight away from Covington, it also moved Covington even further away from a title shot. With his win, Burns skyrocketed to the number one ranking in the UFC welterweight division and there are now talks of him getting the next title shot against Kamaru Usman. But, ever the optimist, Covington says that will work out just fine because it means the UFC can focus on making the real money fight in the welterweight division, him vs. his former teammate and “best friend,” Jorge Masvidal. “I could care less (about Burns getting the next title shot). Nobody knows who that guy is,” Covington concluded. “Let them fight. That just means the biggest fight in the welterweight division has opened the door, and that’s me versus ‘Street Judas’ Masvidal. Everybody knows that’s a real beef and that score needs to be settled. ‘Judas’ Masvidal, he’s got nowhere to go. We know he ducked Marty ‘Fake Newsman’ but he’s got no other fights to be made. The biggest fight that can happen is the man, me, versus the loser, ‘Street Judas’ Masvidal.” MUST-READ STORIES Protests.

Contre Askren, il a eu de la réussite, c'est très bien, et heureusement, car Askren est typiquement le genre d'adversaire qui est un cauchemar pour lui, c'est à dire un bon lutteur avec un énorme cardio. Sinon je suis d'accord avec tout ce que tu dis, même si j'appréhende le fight contre Covington, qui risque d'être long et pénible pour Masvidal...

  12. Haaa mais @strikeufc: Jorge Masvidal va gagner le titre! Nous sommes beaucoup à être vraiment fan du fighter mais c'est juste frustrant de voir toutes ces tractations inutiles pour tenter de faire monter une sauce qui est déjà à point (je comprend l'argument financier mais il ne sera pas plus payé par l'UFC, malheureusement). Après qu'il se fasse passer devant par Burns (qui a redistribué joliment les cartes ce week-end et qui est passé #1 WW dans les rankings UFC) ne me pose aucuns soucis, si en contre-partie il affronte Covington! Mais pas encore Diaz (le fight serait excitant mais y'a mieux qui se profil pour "Gamebred"). Que Diaz face une trilogie prolifique face à Conor (ça serait inutile sportivement mais déjà plus sympa car ils pourront se départager).

  14. Aljamain Sterling looked to enter the race for title contention when he squared off with a fellow streaking bantamweight. Sterling (18-3 MMA, 10-3 UFC) faced Pedro Munhoz at UFC 238, with both men looking for their fourth consecutive win. Many expected Sterling’s route to victory to be on the ground, but instead he stood toe to toe with Munhoz for all three rounds. In Round 1, Sterling used his length, attacking Munhoz with a variety of kicking techniques. Munhoz pressed forward, trying to close the distance, but Sterling did a good job of evading any significant shots. Sterling continued to stick and move in Round 2, using his reach advantage to continuously pepper Munhoz with strikes. But Munhoz started to find some success with his forward pressure, digging into Sterling’s body and hurting him low to the legs. In Round 3, the pace started to slow down from both men, but Sterling was still able to find a home for his jab. Munhoz managed to stuff all of Sterling’s takedown attempts but after three rounds, Sterling had out-landed Munhoz, sweeping all three judges’ scorecards.

  15. When you earn the biggest win of your career, big things tend to follow. And that’s the case with Gilbert Burns. Burns put on an impressive performance this past Saturday in the UFC on ESPN 9 headliner as he dominated former welterweight champion Tyron Woodley for five rounds to earn a unanimous decision. The victory made it six in a row for Burns (19-3 MMA, 12-3 UFC), while Woodley (19-5-1 MMA, 9-4-1 UFC) dropped his second consecutive fight for the first losing streak of his career. As expected, both men went in opposite directions in the latest USA TODAY Sports/MMA Junkie welterweight rankings. Burns, who entered the fight No. 12, climbed all the way to No. 5 with the victory. As for Woodley, he dropped out of the top 5 for the first time in five years, to No. 6, after his second straight lackluster performance in defeat. Colby Covington, Jorge Masvidal and Bellator champion Douglas Lima all benefited from the shakeup near the top. There was more movement coming out of UFC on ESPN 9 and surely more to come with UFC 250 on Saturday. You can take a look at the latest USA TODAY Sports/MMA Junkie rankings across all divisions in the dropdowns above. Voir l'article complet

With another action-packed month of MMA in the books, MMA Junkie looks at the best submissions from May 2020: Here are the five nominees, listed in chronological order, and winner of MMA Junkie’s “Submission of the Month” award for May. At the bottom of the post, let us know if we got it right by voting for your choice. * * * * The Nominees Thiago Moises def. Michael Johnson at UFC on ESPN+ 29 Thiago Moises (13-4 MMA, 2-2 UFC) showed why one should never be counted out of a fight when he turned the tables on Michael Johnson (19-16 MMA, 11-12 UFC) for the biggest win of his career. After getting picked apart for the first round, Moises came out in the second and bum-rushed Johnson. He managed to tie Johnson up and falling back into an ankle lock. The tap came quickly after, and Moises was awarded the victor in a stunning comeback. Cortney Casey def. Mara Romero Borella at UFC on ESPN 8 Cortney Casey (9-7 MMA, 5-6 UFC) picked up arguably the best win of her UFC career on Saturday when she finished Mara Romero Borella (12-8 MMA, 2-4 UFC) in resounding fashion at UFC on ESPN 8. Casey not only finished Borella in the first round, but she did it with an armbar that caused the Brazilian to scream out loud while tapping out. The victory marked a successful move up to the women’s flyweight division for Casey after spending her previous 10 octagon appearances at strawweight. 🅲🆂🆃 🅸🆁🅽 @CastIron_Casey locks in the RD1 sub!

Hannah Cifers via kneebar at UFC on ESPN 9 Mackenzie Dern (8-1 MMA, 3-1 UFC) had to work through a relentless Hannah Cifers (10-5 MMA, 2-3 UFC) in the early going, but ultimately did what she does best. Dern made relatively quick work of Cifers – but only after she was able to get the fight to the canvas, where she forced Cifers to tap with a kneebar. The finish for Dern, the biggest favorite on the card, was the first leg-related submission in a women’s UFC fight. * * * * The Winner: Thiago Moises Gallery Thiago Moises def. Michael Johnson at UFC on ESPN+ 29: Best photos view 12 images Moises picked up the biggest win of his career when he defeated Johnson in a stunning turnaround. In the beginning of the fight it seemed the version of Johnson who owns victories over the likes of Tony Ferguson and Dustin Poirier had arrived. He stopped Moises’ takedowns and got his striking off in the first round of the lightweight bout, which took place at VyStar Veterans Memorial Arena in Jacksonville, Fla. Then the second round came, and Moises was a different fighter. He rushed Johnson immediately and pulled guard when he was met with resistance. From there, he fell back and locked in a tight heel hook that forced Johnson to tap out at the 0:25 mark of Round 2. The defeat put Johnson on a three-fight skid and dropped him to 3-8 in his past 11 UFC appearances. He appeared to suffer damage to his knee during the finish, too. Moises, for his part, completed his UFC contract with a big finish. He made it clear he wants to stick around with a new contract, and called out former lightweight champ Anthony Pettis.

  18. Amanda Nunes’ resume in women’s mixed martial arts is unmatched. After defending her UFC bantamweight title three times, including wins over former 135-pound champ Ronda Rousey and current UFC flyweight champion Valentina Shevchenko, Nunes attempted to move up in weight and take on the unstoppable Cris Cyborg. Nunes (19-4 MMA, 12-1 UFC) faced then-UFC featherweight champion Cyborg at UFC 232, looking to join an elite few fighters to claim two titles simultaneously. Cyborg immediately drew Nunes into a firefight, backing her against the fence and throwing heat in the pocket. But that cost Cyborg, as Nunes landed a perfectly-timed short counter right that stumbled her and spelled the beginning of the end. Nunes poured it on, putting the finishing touch with a big overhand right that flattened Cyborg. Related UFC 250: How to watch Nunes vs. Spencer, full card, start time, streaming info Since then, Nunes has defended her 135-pound title two more times, adding two more former champions in Holly Holm and Germaine de Randamie to her resume.

  25. Leon Edwards’ last loss came at the hands of reigning UFC welterweight champion Kamaru Usman almost five years ago. Since losing to Usman in 2015, Edwards (18-3 MMA, 10-2 UFC) has won eight in a row and is knocking on the door of a title shot. With Edwards on the cusp of 170-pound contention, the title happens to be held by Usman (16-1 MMA, 11-0 UFC), which would give Edwards not only a chance to win gold but a chance to avenge his most recent loss. The Birmingham resident traveled halfway across the world to famed American Kickboxing Academy in San Jose, Calif., for that camp, but the preparation didn’t produce the kind of results he was hoping for. Since then, he has found a recipe for success in his home gym, Team Renegade, and thinks the result would be different if the two were to run things back. “We’re two different – from back then like five years ago – just two different abilities and what we’ve achieved,” Edwards told MMA Junkie. “I truly believe I’ve got everything I need to beat him. If you watch the first fight, it was 1-1 going into the third round, I think, and he did what he did with the wrestling. “My preparation for that fight was not how I like to prepare. I went away at AKA, and I did my camp at AKA, and now I’m back in the U.K. working with my team, and I have not lost since. So I truly believe that the fight would be different, and I would get the victory.” Related Gunning for title shot, Gilbert Burns says things could get weird with teammate Kamaru Usman Dana White reveals the three top contenders for Kamaru Usman's title; rules out Conor McGregor Usman is projected to face Jorge Masvidal next, and both men peak Edwards’ interest as potential next opponents. Edwards had his infamous backstage altercation with Masvidal in London, where he was attacked backstage after the two jawed at each other. While Edwards has no preference of who wins, he gives the edge to the champion. “I couldn’t care less who wins,” Edwards said. “Like I said, it’s two good stories between both men, so either way, both fights would sell just as much, but I don’t know who wins. Usman probably – I think Usman is a better all-around martial artist. His striking, wrestling and he can mix it up a little more, good cardio. Masvidal comes out, he’s a good boxer, so I’d probably edge towards Usman on the victory.” Voir l'article complet

  27. Jan Blachowicz | Esther Lin, MMA Fighting After knocking out Corey Anderson back in February, Jan Blachowicz felt like it was only a matter of time before he had a contract with Jon Jones’ name on the other end of it. Now four months later, the Polish contender is still waiting on word about his next fight with the last few days spent watching Jones engage in a public spat with the UFC regarding money and his overall value to the company. The heated exchanges between Jones and UFC President Dana White eventually led to the reigning light heavyweight champion declaring that he would vacate his title and walk away from the sport. Jones even went as far as to suggest that Blachowicz and Dominick Reyes compete for a vacant title in his absence. For all the anger and rancor shared between Jones and the UFC in recent days, Blachowicz isn’t convinced that it will actually lead to a new champion being crowned. “I’m just a little bit tired of this situation,” Blachowicz told MMA Fighting on Tuesday. “I’m just waiting. He’s not quitting. He’s not going to retire. I think this is his game to make more money and this is it. But we will see what the UFC will do. I’m just waiting for the UFC moves and that’s it. We will see. “If he quits, then I hope my next fight will be for the title against Dominick Reyes. This is my next scenario if he quits but I don’t believe that. I’m still waiting for him.” Blachowicz won’t fault Jones for trying to score a bigger payday for a potential fight against heavyweight boogeyman Francis Ngannou, but he’s also aware that this entire dust up is likely a negotiating tactic. “Everybody wants big money,” Blachowicz said. “I understand that. We do this for money and for fun, also. It’s a job but everybody who is doing this loves doing this. But you also want to make big money on this business. I understand everything that they do. “I think he’s just playing games. He wants to make bigger money and I don’t believe he will quit. But if he quits, Dominick Reyes is also a perfect opponent for me.” While he would much rather become the first person to hand Jones a legitimate loss, Blachowicz isn’t going to scoff at a fight with Reyes so long as there is gold on the line. “Of course. If the fight is going to be for the title, I’m open for this,” Blachowicz said about fighting Reyes. “It’s also going to be a good fight. My next fight will be for the title. I don’t know against who. I don’t know when, but my next fight will be for the title. “It’s a mess. I’m just waiting to see what the UFC is going to do about this whole situation. I’ve gotten all my emails, my next fight will be for the title and I’m just waiting for the date when the government opens the borders and I can be in the U.S. the next day when they open the borders. So I’m just waiting for what’s going to happen next.” The only thing Blachowicz feels sure of is that a UFC light heavyweight championship fight is in his immediate future. He truly believes Jones will be his opponent but if the title is truly vacated, then Blachowicz will move onto the next challenger in line. “I’m tired of the whole situation,” Blachowicz said. “I’m tired of waiting but if I have to wait a little bit longer, then OK. I know how to survive this couple of months of waiting. “But I believe they will not make the rematch between [Jones and Reyes]. I believe I’m going to be the next opponent for Jon Jones or Dominick for the title.” Afficher l’article complet
