  2. Episode 4 of “The Ultimate Fighter 28: Heavy Hitters” opens with Team Whittaker’s Julija Stoliarenko doing some fight preparation. She discusses the honor of being the first female Lithuanian fighter to appear on a UFC platform, and she karate champion wants to represent for her country. Head coach Robert Whittaker says he’s particularly excited for Stoliarenko’s upcoming matchup against Team Gastelum’s Marciea Allen because his top female pick finally gets the chance to compete. The coaching staff is high on Stoliarenko’s skillset and thinks she can win on both the feet and ground. wh At the next Team Gastelum training session, head coach Kelvin Gastelum brings in some special guest coaches. Brian Beaumont, who was one of Gastelum’s first MMA coaches, is there to provide some added assistance. During a grappling demo, however, he surprises Gastelum with his black belt in jiu-jitsu “To give him his black belt tonight in kind of the pinnacle of his career, almost a as a recognition of everything he’s done and everything he’s been through,” Beaumont said. “To be able to share that with him? I can’t even tell you what the feeling is like.” Gastelum is emotional in the aftermath of a memorable career moment. “I didn’t know what to say, but really what I wanted to say at that moment was to the other fighters, ‘Look at these people that surround me. This is why I’ve been successful,'” Gastelum says. “I want to be one of those instruments to these other fighters here.” Coach Whittaker decides to switch things up for his next training session. He brings the fighters outside of the house to go paddle boarding to help “break the tension” around the highly tedious style of training required to compete on “TUF.” Team Gastelum’s Allen shift focus to the final stages of her fight preparation. SAs the last overall pick in the competition, Allen believes she’s been somewhat overlooked, but says her skills are far better than what was judged during evaluations at the start of the season. Back at the TUF House, Team Whittaker’s Leah Letson is growing frustrating with her situation. She doesn’t think the training sessions are challenging her or hard enough, and a result she’s putting in extra work just to ensure her conditioning and strength are up to par for when she gets the call to fight. She mentions how Team Gastelum could be a better fit, hinting at some possible controversy in the future. At the official weigh-in, Allen and Stoliarenko step on the scale and come in under the required limit. A respectful staredown follows and with that, the second women’s featherweight quarterfinal of the season is set. Fight day arrives and the athletes head to the TUF Gym. Allen and Stoliarenko warm up in the locker rooms with their coaches before heading to the octagon. TEAM GASTELUM’S MARCIEA ALLEN (7-2) VS. TEAM WHITTAKER’S JULIJA STOLIARENKO (4-2-1) Round 1 – They meet in the middle of the octagon and exchange combinations before stepping away and remeasuring distance. Stoliarenko throws some kicks from the outside before shooting in for a takedown on her opponent. Allen stuffs it and is abele to get on top. She’s standing from on top and lands some absolutely massive punches from the stacked guard. Allen is landing more enormous shots as Stoliarenko merely attempts to keep herself int the fight and roll free. Stoliarenko’s nose is bloodied but she’s trying to get an armbar or do anything. Allen is relentless, though, and is battering Stoliarenko with more vicious shots. Stoliarenko somehow survives the flurry and stands up, but she’s taken a lot of punishment. She shoots for a takedown, though, and is able to plant Allen on her back. Stoliarenko then starts to go to work from on top. Stoliarenko passes guard then moves into mount. Stoliarenko grabs the right arm and falls back for the armbar. Allen tries to squirm out but she’s caught and is forced to tap out. Remarkable comeback for Stoliarenko. Julija Stoliarenko def. Marciea Allen via submission (armbar) – Round 1 Stoliarenko is unsurprisingly emotional after rallying to win in dramatic fashion. She not only got the huge win for herself, but finally got the first victory for Team Whittaker after three losses to begin the competition. “Right now I feel happy, I feel like I did a little history for my country winning the first TUF fight,” Stoliarenko says. “For me, it’s not over. It’s only the beginning. It’s only one fight. I still have two fights forward. I’ve got to get ready and win the show.” Once the aftermath of Frazier vs. Da Silva wraps up, the fighters return for the next fight announcement. With control of fight selection, coach Gastelum selects his No. 5 pick, Josh Parisian, to fight Team Whittaker’s No. 5 pick, Michel Batista, in the third heavyweight quarterfinal.

  3. Coach Robert Whittaker has his first win of the season. Pitting his No. 1 featherweight pick Julija Stoliarenko against Team Gastelum’s last pick Marciea Allen, the UFC middleweight champion saw his fighter come out on top with a first-round submission on episode four of The Ultimate Fighter 28. The victory did not come easily. Stoliarenko made it clear from the outset that she wanted to take down the hard-hitting Allen, but her first shot was easily stuffed. From there, Stoliarenko pulled guard as Allen pushed her down and Allen proceeded to go to work with some hellacious ground-and-pound. The referee repeatedly warned Stoliarenko that the fight might be stopped, but the Lithuanian stayed busy trying to control Allen’s posture from bottom position. With Marceia focusing on damage over control, Julija managed to stand up, bloody face and all. She ate a knee on another takedown attempt, but turned the corner to complete it and secure top position. Stoliarenko worked her way into half guard, then mount, before finishing Allen with an armbar. It was a big victory not just for Team Whittaker, but for Stoliarenko (4-2-1), who is hoping to become the first TUF winner from Lithuania. For Allen (7-2), this is the first time she’s experienced a loss since June 2014; however, TUF bouts are considered to be exhibitions, so it will not count towards her pro record. Team Gastelum maintains a 3-1 lead on the season, with the top middleweight contender’s fighters having scored wins on the first three episodes of TUF 28. Afterwards, Whittaker joked with Julija about her pulling guard, something that she admitted she does all the time in her fights despite people telling her not to. In other storylines, Kelvin Gastelum received an emotional surprise when his coach Brian Beaumont awarded him his black belt. They took that opportunity to remind everyone that Gastelum was once the last fighter picked on his season of TUF and he would go on to win that tournament and become a top contender in the UFC. Leah Letson continued to struggle with the culture of Team Whittker due to her being the only American on that squad and because she’s used to more intense training. Allen and Maurice Greene are shown suggesting to her that she start attending the practices of Team Gastelum. Here are the first-round results so far: Maurice Greene def. Przemyslaw Mysiala via KO (uppercut) in round one Pannie Kianzad def. Katharina Lehner via unanimous decision Justin Frazier def. Anderson da Silva via unanimous decision Julija Stoliarenko def. Marciea Allen via submission (armbar) in round one On next week’s episode, Team Gastelum’s Josh Parisian fights Team Whittaker’s Michel Batista. Season 28 of The Ultimate Fighter is being coached by UFC middleweight champion Robert Whittaker and top contender Kelvin Gastelum. Gastelum will challenge Whittaker for the middleweight title at a future date to be determined. The finalists of the TUF 28 heavyweight and featherweight tournaments will compete for a six-figure UFC contract at The Ultimate Fighter 28 Finale on Nov. 30 in Las Vegas. Here is the TUF 28 roster divided by team: Team Gastelum Heavyweights Justin Frazier Maurice Greene Josh Parisian Ben Sosoli Featherweights Marciea Allen Macy Chiasson Pannie Kianzad Bea Malecki Team Whittaker Heavyweights Michel Batista Juan Francisco Espino Przemyslaw Mysiala Anderson da Silva Featherweights Katharina Lehner Leah Letson Larissa Pacheco Julija Stoliarenko Advancing to Round 2: Greene, Kianzad, Frazier, Stoliarenko Eliminated: Mysiala, Lehner, Da Silva, Allen Afficher l’article complet
  4. UFC President Dana White is ready to put Jon Jones back in the octagon, though it won’t be this year. In a prepared statement, White agreed with an independent arbitrator’s opinion that Jones (21-1 MMA, 16-1 UFC) didn’t knowingly cheat and pinned his positive test on a contaminated supplement. White added: “The science completely supports that finding. The science doesn’t lie, so I look forward to getting him back early next year.” Related Daniel Cormier dismisses Jon Jones trilogy, tells USADA not to visit anymore In a follow-up text message to MMAjunkie, White ruled out the possibility of Jones fighting at UFC 230, which takes place just five days after the former light heavyweight champion becomes eligible to fight again. The U.S. Anti-Doping Agency on Wednesday announced Jones, 31, received a 15-month suspension for his second anti-doping violation, which stems from a failed in-competition test following his knockout win over Daniel Cormier at UFC 214. His suspension is retroactive to July 28, 2017, the date his positive sample was collected, making him eligible to fight Oct. 28. Jones was facing a four-year suspension for his second anti-doping offense. But even before he went to arbitration, he received a 30-month reduction from USADA based on “delivery of substantial assistance,” or providing information on another athlete’s anti-doping violation. Based on that, Jones faced a maximum suspension of 18 months. Related Jon Jones releases statement after USADA suspension: 'Comeback season begins now' The independent arbitrator, well known anti-doping investigator Richard McLaren, found Jones had “some degree of fault” for the steroid metabolite that showed up in his system, but “the violation was not intended nor could it have enhanced” his performance. While Jones initially was flagged for oral turinabol, a steroid linked to Olympic doping scandals in the 1960s and 1970s, McLaren’s decision stated the World Anti-Doping Agency-certified lab didn’t find the “parent drug” or its short and medium term metablites. Instead, they found an “extremely low” level of the steroid metabolite M3, which is linked to five anabolic agents, including turinabol. The report said after his positive test, Jones told USADA he used 14 supplements in 2017, none of which were advertised to contain banned substances. They were then “laboratory tested” and found to have any banned substances or illegal metabolites. McLaren found that Jones could have taken greater steps to avoid another violation by using third-party tested supplements, and that the fighter “assumed incorrectly” that he was using supplements approved by USADA. Related Twitter reacts to Jon Jones' USADA suspension, possible UFC 230 return But when assessing what penalties the fighter should face, McLaren favored a lower level of punishment. He repeatedly pointed to Jones’ demeanor, finding him “a truthful witness” and “a very credible person who was well intended and well meaning.” McLaren also cast Jones as a victim of sorts, caught up in the anti-doping process despite his efforts to do the right thing. “Jon Jones has gone through a great deal of difficulties,” he wrote. “He gave me the very distinct impression that he has learned a lot from the loss of the image of himself that he had as a champion MMA fighter. He has been humbled and humiliated by the experience, but has learned from his misfortune. He needs the opportunity to regain his dignity and self-esteem.” Prior to the announcement of his suspension, Jones said he relished the chance to beat Cormier and take his light heavyweight and heavyweight titles. In the wake of the arbitrator’s decision, Cormier appears to have shot down the idea and looked instead toward a fight against Brock Lesnar.

  7. Daniel Cormier didn’t have to wait long to get a chance to share his opinion on the Jon Jones verdict. Appearing in his role as an analyst on UFC Tonight, Cormier was immediately asked by co-host Kenny Florian to discuss the news regarding Jones receiving a 15-month suspension from the USADA on Wednesday for a failed drug test stemming from a sample taken in July of last year. Cormier and Jones have a storied rivalry, including two championship bouts that both ended with Jones’s hand being raised (their second encounter at UFC 214 was overturned to a no-contest as a result of Jones’s positive test, leading to Cormier retaining his title), but he didn’t sound enthusiastic about having to answer questions concerning Jones yet again. In the time since their last fight, Cormier recorded a successful defense of the UFC light heavyweight championship in January, then went on to win the heavyweight title from Stipe Miocic the following July. To him, that’s all that needs to be talked about. “I’m the UFC double champion,” Cormier said. “I have bosses in the back and I’m talking about this guy because I have to. I’ve moved past that. I went about my business. I went and won another title. This guy, I guess now his suspension’s up. So we’ll see what happens.” Asked if there was any chance of Cormier taking on Jones a third time, he didn’t dismiss the idea, but made it clear that his focus is on an impending heavyweight title defense against former UFC champion and WWE star Brock Lesnar. “I think people get excited, people get excited about the prospect of us fighting again, but I’ve got a fight with Brock Lesnar,” Cormier said. “Why would I look back? Why would I look back to Jones now when I’ve got a fight? “Obviously, as a competitor I want to fight the guy. He’s beaten me twice. But I’ve got a fight. Why go back? This is a bigger fight. I’ve got a bigger fight with Brock Lesnar. Why should I go back?” Arbitrators ruled that Jones had unknowingly taken a tainted supplement, which was also part of the defense that Jones’s team employed when he tested positive for a banned substance in July 2016. Cormier did not outright question the verdict nor the veracity of Jones’s testimony, but he offered a glib response in evaluating USADA’s decision-making. “Again, it is what it is. Here’s the deal, when it comes to USADA, they can’t come to my house anymore at 6 a.m,” Cormier said. “What’s the point? They’ve been to my house 15 times, enough. “USADA, don’t come to my house anymore. You don’t need to. You don’t need to come. I’m not gonna fail a test, I’m not gonna make any mistakes. I’m not gonna have to sit up there and go, ‘I’m serious this time, guys. I promise I wasn’t really trying to cheat.’ It’s never gonna happen with me. 70 times, 70 times since I started wrestling internationally and I have never made a mistake. It’s not that hard. So even me having to sit here and do this again shows that guys are ridiculous.” See the UFC Tonight segment below: Following USADA's official ruling on Jon Jones, @dc_mma speaks on the possibility of DC vs Jones 3. pic.twitter.com/MVQSOY83dg — FOX Sports: UFC (@UFCONFOX) September 20, 2018 Afficher l’article complet
  8. Gallery Photos: Best of Daniel Cormier view 52 images It didn’t take long for dual-UFC champ Daniel Cormier to offer an opinion on Jon Jones’ 15-month suspension, which was announced today by the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency (USADA). Cormier (21-1 MMA, 10-1 UFC), who was Jones’ (22-1 MMA, opponent at UFC 214 in July 2017 when “Bones” flunked his drug test, hosted tonight’s episode of “UFC Tonight” on FS1, which aired just minutes after it was announced Jones had reached an arbitration decision with USADA that will allow him to return as of Oct. 28. Related Jon Jones releases statement after USADA suspension: 'Comeback season begins now' Twitter reacts to Jon Jones' USADA suspension, possible UFC 230 return For starters, Cormier gave his instant reaction to the situation and noted that he was only talking about Jones because it’s part of his television duties (via Twitter): Following USADA's official ruling on Jon Jones, @dc_mma speaks on the possibility of DC vs Jones 3. pic.twitter.com/MVQSOY83dg — FOX Sports: UFC (@UFCONFOX) September 20, 2018 “I’m the UFC double champion,” Cormier said. “I have bosses in the back and I’m talking about this guy because I have too. I’ve moved past that guy. I went about my business. I went and won another title. Now this guy’s suspension is up, so we’ll see what happens.” Cormier’s co-host Kenny Florian then asked Cormier if he would be interested in a third matchup with his longtime rival now that it’s a realistic possibility. “DC” didn’t show much interested in a trilogy and pointed to the fact he has a matchup with Brock Lesnar tentatively lined up for early next year. Related Jon Jones says Daniel Cormier 'too fast' for Brock Lesnar, picks UFC champ to retain title “I think people get excited, people get excited about the prospect of us fighting again, but I’ve got a fight with Brock Lesnar. Why would I look back? Why would I look back to Jones now when I’ve got a fight? Obviously as a competitor I want to fight the guy whose beat me twice, but I’ve got a fight. Why go back? I’ve got a bigger fight with Brock Lesnar, why should I go back?” Like many others within the MMA community, Cormier questioned the circumstances around Jones’ suspension considering the fact he’s a multi-time offender. Other fighters have received sterner punishments for less under USADA, and in closing Cormier had a pointed message for the UFC’s doping partner. “Here’s the deal: When it comes to USADA, they can’t come to my house anymore at 6 a.m,” Cormier said. “What’s the point? They’ve been to my house 15 times. USADA, don’t come to my house anymore. You don’t need too. You don’t need to come. I’m not going to fail a test, I’m not going to make any mistakes, I’m not going to have to sit up there and go, ‘I’m serious this time, guys.

  9. Jon Jones is back. On Wednesday, it was reported by MMA Fighting that the former UFC light heavyweight champion had been given a 15-month suspension for his second failed drug test, which came from a sample collected in July of last year. That means Jones will be eligible to compete again on Oct. 28. Jones has long maintained his innocence and he took to social media shortly after the verdict became public to declare his comeback intentions. It’s difficult to express myself at this moment but I can definitely say my heart is filled with gratitude and appreciation. I want to thank all of you who have stood by me during the toughest stretch of my life. It has meant the world to me and always will. But now is the time to shift the focus front and center to the road ahead. Greatness is what I’m chasing and the path to reclaiming my throne is now officially open. Comeback Season begins now. When the term of Jones’s suspension is officially over in October, he will have been out of competition since UFC 214. There, the 31-year-old defeated Daniel Cormier via third-round head kick KO to reclaim the light heavyweight championship that he had previously vacated after he was arrested for his involvement in a hit-and-run in April 2015. However, Jones’s UFC 214 triumph and title win would later be stricken from the record when he tested positive for turinabol shortly afterward. It was the second failed drug test of Jones’s career, following an incident in July 2016 when he was flagged just days prior to UFC 200. He was scheduled to face Cormier in the main event of that show, but was forced to withdraw as a result of his positive test. For that infraction, Jones received a one-year suspension from the USADA. No indication has been given as to when Jones will actually be booked to fight again, so it remains to be seen when “comeback season” will officially begin. Afficher l’article complet

  15. Jon Jones has released a statement on his suspension announcement after reaching arbitration with the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency (USADA). Jones (22-1 MMA, 16-1 UFC), the former UFC light heavyweight champion, failed a drug test in July 2017 around the time of his UFC 214 fight with Daniel Cormier. He’s been dealing with the issue for more than a year, but today it was announced he reached an agreement with USADA and is eligible to return on Oct. 28. Not long after the decision was announced, Jones published a statement on social media expressing his gratitude to his supports and excitement to get back in the cage to regain UFC gold (via <a href=" It’s difficult to express myself at this moment but I can definitely say my heart is filled with gratitude and appreciation.

Former UFC champ Jon Jones finally had his future unveiled today when it was announced he’d agreed to a 15-month suspension with the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) after going through arbitration. Jones (22-1 MMA, 16-1 UFC) failed a drug test around the time of his UFC 214 bout with Daniel Cormier in July 2017. It was his second incident involving a doping violation, but “Bones” managed to find a way to get less time than many expected and is cleared to fight Oct. 28, which is just days before UFC 230 in New York City on Nov. 3.

  20. Jon Jones is eligible to come back to the UFC, and sooner than many expected. The U.S. Anti-Doping Agency on Wednesday night announced the former UFC light heavyweight champion has received a 15-month suspension for his second anti-doping offense, clearing the way for a potential octagon return at UFC 230. Jones, 31, faced up to a four-year term when he tested positive for turinabol after his rematch against current champ Daniel Cormier at UFC 214. The California State Athletic Commission subsequently revoked his license and issued a hefty fine, leading the UFC to strip him of the title he won via knockout. But the commission did not suspend him, leaving the issue to the UFC’s anti-doping partner. USADA’s decision is an unquestionably favorable outcome for the embattled former champion, who was given a one-year suspension after testing positive for multiple performance enhancers in connection with a canceled title unifier against Cormier at UFC 200 in July 2016. In its announcement, USADA said it imposed the 15-month suspension after an evidentiary hearing with an independent arbitrator on September 15. Even before the hearing, though, USADA said the suspension length was reduced by 30 months “based on Jones’ delivery of substantial assistance.” “The independent arbitrator found that Jon Jones was not intentionally cheating in this case, and while we thought 18 months was the appropriate sanction given the other circumstances of the case, we respect the arbitrator’s decision and believe that justice was served,” USADA CEO Travis T. Tygart said in a statement. Jones’ suspension is retroactive to July 28, 2017, the date his positive sample was collected, making him eligible on Oct. 28. His eligibility falls just five days prior to UFC 230, which takes place Nov. 3 at Madison Square Garden in New York City. Jones has been heavily rumored to be in consideration as a headliner for the show, which lacks a main event. For more on UFC 230, check out the UFC Rumors section of the site. Voir l'article complet

  25. Jon Jones might get the chance to headline a huge card in his home state after all. The former UFC light heavyweight champion — and one of the greatest to ever step in the Octagon — was given a 15-month suspension in his USADA case by an arbitrator, following his failed drug test for a steroid metabolite, multiple sources told MMA Fighting on Wednesday. The suspension is retroactive to when the sample was collected July 28, 2017 and Jones will be eligible to fight again Oct. 28. An official announcement from USADA with a full arbitrator decision is expected Wednesday night. The arbitrator’s decision means Jones would be eligible to fight at UFC 230 on Nov. 3 at New York’s Madison Square Garden, a card that is currently without a main event. Jones is a New York native. Jones tested positive for Turinabol in relation to his UFC 214 title fight with Daniel Cormier in July 2017. Jones won that fight by third-round knockout, but the result was overturned to a no contest by the California State Athletic Commission (CSAC) following the positive drug test. In February, Jones had his MMA license revoked by CSAC and he was fined $205,000. CSAC executive officer Andy Foster said at the hearing he would honor the suspension length in the USADA case. Jones, 31, was facing a four-year USADA suspension as a second-time offender of the UFC’s anti-doping policy. “Bones” failed an out-of-competition drug test for two anti-estrogen agents in 2016, knocking him out of a main-event fight with Cormier at UFC 200. Jones was given a one-year suspension by an arbitration panel in that case. Before the two failed drug tests and assortment of outside-the-cage issues have kept him away from the Octagon during a sizable chunk of his prime, Jones was considered the greatest MMA fighter of all time. He held the UFC light heavyweight title from 2011 to 2016 and never lost in competition. Jones had his title stripped following a felony hit-and-run arrest. Jones (22-1, 1 NC) has still not truly lost in earnest inside the cage. His only defeat came against Matt Hamill in 2009 due to disqualification. Afficher l’article complet
