  6. Episode No. 10 of “The Ultimate Fighter 27: Undefeated” opens with a Team Cormier training session, which features a special guest coaching appearance. Head coach Daniel Cormier brings “The Ultimate Fighter 15” winner Michael Chiesa into the gym to help provide the fighters with some guidance and advise on the final stages of the competition. Chiesa retells the story of how his father passed away the day after he joined the competition, but he used that adversity to push himself even harder. Chiesa says he wants the athletes to learn that the pressure is ultimately a good thing that’s going to be of benefit going forward, no matter the results of the fight. The first featherweight semifinal is an all-Team Cormier affair. Teammates Brad Katona and Bryce Mitchell are set to share the octagon later in the episode, with the winner advancing to the finals. Neither fighter has a problem fighting a teammate, and are working out side-by-side each day in the lead up to their bout. Back at The Ultimate Fighter House, the cast members are given a small glimpse of the outside world. They are allowed to watch February’s UFC on FOX 27 event, which featured a Jeremy Stephens vs. Josh Emmett headliner. Team Miocic head coach Stipe Miocic and his assistant coaches bring pizza to the house for the cast members and joins them in watching the fights. At the official weigh-in, Katona and Mitchell come in under the 146-pound featherweight limit. A respectful staredown between teammates follows. The next day, the athletes return to the TUF Gym for their fight. They finalize preparation in the locker rooms before heading to the octagon to determine the first featherweight finalist. Team Cormier’s Brad Katona (6-0) vs. Team Cormier’s Bryce Mitchell (9-0) Round 1 – Mitchell applies the pressure early, but Katona is firing back with hard low kicks. Mitchell begins to settle down a little bit and is picking his shots with more patience. Katona comes forward with a combination that lands. Katona changes levels for a takedown and nearly eats a heavy knee, but he pushes through and secures a takedown. Mitchell immediately goes for the rubber guard, but Katona stays high with his posture and avoids any danger. Katona steps over and attempts a guillotine choke, but that allows Mitchell to roll into top position. He doesn’t stay there long, though, because Katona reserves him and retakes top control. Mitchell is trying to scramble up from bottom, and after some hard work he eventually gets it. They clinch against the fence, but Mitchell spins free before absorbing any damage. Katona is throwing a lot of leg kicks and it’s obvious Mitchell doesn’t like them, because he goes for a takedown. He pushes Katona against the fence before getting him down with a body lock. Unfortunately, he can’t do anything with it before time runs out. Round 2 – Mitchell lands a nice left hook out of the gate and follow it up with a head kick that’s blocked. Katona is not hurt by it and moves forward with more leg kicks that are badly bothering Mitchell. Mitchell steps in with a clean short left hand, and that forced Katona to initiate the clinch and go for a takedown against the fence. Mitchell reverses position and takes control of the situation. He tries for the body lock takedown again, but Katona has it scouted this time and breaks into free space. Katona lands a hand combination and just grazes Mitchell with a head kick. The pace of the striking picks up for a few seconds, but nothing significant lands. Katona is picking his shots well and is landing at a high accuracy, but Mitchell handles the power well. Mitchell times a nice single leg takedown and lands in Katona’s guard. Katona attacks with an armbar from bottom, but Mitchell is wise to it. Mitchell postures up and attempts to reign down some shots to end the round. Round 3 – Mitchell land a straight left hand to begin the final round. Katona is remaining disciplined with the game plan, because most of his strikes are either quick punches or leg kicks. Mitchell pushes forward with the takedown again as well as some punches. One of his clean elbow shots opens a cut on Katona’s nose, and Mitchell gets a takedown. Mitchell is working from on top, but receives multiple warms from the referee due to inactivity. Katona goes for an armbar from bottom and uses it to roll his way on top. Katona settles into Mitchell’s guard before taking the back and locking in a rear-naked choke. The submission is in tight, and Mitchell is left with no choice but to tap out. Brad Katona def. Bryce Mitchell via submission (rear-naked choke) – Round 3 “There was a lot of work going on in that fight,” Katona says post-fight. “I have to give a lot of acknowledgment to Bryce for exposing areas of my game that I need to work on. He really tested me in all facets of fighting, on the feet, and in wrestling. I ended up coming out with the win, and I was saying before this fight how it is the intangibles, and I think I showed it in this fight.” Coach Cormier has nothing but rave reviews for Katona’s performance. “We knew Brad was talented, despite his shy personality,” Cormier says. “He stayed composed, despite Bryce beating on him and he showed he’s a complete martial artist. Bryce showed heart and he just made a mistake and Brad got the W.” With the victory, Katona becomes the first to advance to the lightweight tournament final, where he’ll meet the winner of Team Cormier’s Tyler Diamond and Team Miocic’s Jay Cucciniello. On the next episode, the second featherweight final makes place. Team Cormier’s Joe Giannetti takes on Team Miocic’s Allan Zuniga to see who will meet Mike Trizano at The Ultimate Fighter 27 Finale on July 6 in Las Vegas.

  7. Hyped as a UFC-caliber contest, it’s only fitting that Brad Katona vs. Bryce Mitchell ended in a UFC-caliber finish. Battling for the first spot in The Ultimate Fighter 27 featherweight tournament finals, Team Cormier teammates Katona and Mitchell fought back-and-forth for almost the full 15 minutes before Katona was able to secure a fight-ending rear-naked choke late in round three. Katona now awaits the winner of the other TUF 27 semifinal matchup between Jay Cucciniello and Tyler Diamond to determine who will compete for a six-figure UFC contract at the live finale on July 6. The fighters in the house had plenty of praise for Katona and Mitchell, calling it a matchup that would already be perfectly suited for a UFC card. They didn’t disappoint. Mitchell pushed the pace in round one, though Katona did a good job of not letting Mitchell exploit his size advantage. The Winnipeg native took Mitchell down around a minute in and the two exchanged control on the mat with Mitchell sweeping Katona only to be reversed and put on his back again. On the feet, Mitchell waded through Katona’s low kicks to repeatedly find a home for his left hook. He ended the round in dominant position with a takedown of Katona. Round two was another close one. Katona’s nose was busted open by a standing elbow from Mitchell as he lunged in for a strike, but the blow didn’t deter him from his strategy of mixing leg kicks and short combinations. Mitchell ended round two with another takedown, then scored with a slam in round three. However, the action turned definitively in Katona’s favor as he threw up an armbar attempt from bottom position that forced Mitchell to abandon his offense and focus on defending. Katona used the submission attempt to sweep and get on top with two minutes to work, and as Mitchell scrambled to stand, he left his neck open and Katona snatched it to earn the tap-out victory. Per the “undefeated” theme of TUF 27, both Katona (6-0) and Mitchell (9-0) entered this bout with perfect records, and technically they will stay that way throughout the season due to TUF bouts being classified as exhibitions. In other storylines, former TUF champion and current UFC lightweight contender Michael Chiesa showed up at the gym to give Team Cormier some pointers on how to survive the final grueling stretch of the show, and Mitchell crafted an arrowhead necklace as a gift for coach Daniel Cormier. Here are the semifinal results thus far: Mike Trizano def. John Gunther via unanimous decision Brad Katona def. Bryce Mitchell via submission (rear-naked choke) in Round 3 Here are results from the first round: Joe Giannetti def. John Gunther via technical submission (guillotine choke) in Round 1 Brad Katona def. Kyler Phillips via majority decision Luis Pena def. Jose Martinez via unanimous decision Bryce Mitchell def. Jay Cucciniello via unanimous decision Mike Trizano def. Thai Clark via TKO (ground and pound) in Round 2 Ricky Steele def. Suman Mokhtarian via unanimous decision Allan Zuniga def. Richie Smullen via disqualification (injury) Tyler Diamond def. Dulani Perry via submission (guillotine choke) in Round 2 On next week’s episode, Team Miocic’s Allan Zuniga fights Team Cormier’s Joe Giannetti for a spot in the lightweight final opposite Mike Trizano. Season 27 of The Ultimate Fighter is being coached by UFC light heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier and UFC heavyweight champion Stipe Miocic. Cormier challenges Miocic for the heavyweight title in the main event of UFC 226 on July 7 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. The finalists of the TUF 27 lightweight and featherweight tournaments will compete for a six-figure UFC contract on July 6, also in Las Vegas. Here is the TUF 27 roster divided by team: Team Cormier Lightweights Thai Clark Joe Giannetti Luis Pena Richie Smullen Featherweights Tyler Diamond Brad Katona Bryce Mitchell Ricky Steele Team Miocic Lightweights John Gunther Jose Martinez Mike Trizano Allan Zuniga Featherweights Jay Cucciniello Suman Mokhtarian Dulani Perry Kyler Phillips Advancing to the finals: Trizano, Katona Advancing to Round 2: Giannetti, Katona, Pena (forced to withdraw due to injury), Mitchell, Trizano, Steele (forced to withdraw due to concussion symptoms), Zuniga, Diamond Eliminated: Gunther (later selected to replace an injured Pena), Phillips, Martinez, Cucciniello (later selected to replace an injured Steele), Clark, Mokhtarian, Smullen, Perry Afficher l’article complet

  9. Claudia Gadelha went under the knife on Wednesday morning to fix her right knee, and it was a success. The UFC strawweight contender announced on her social media that she had a procedure done to fix her LCL, an injury sustained prior to her UFC 225 victory over Carla Esparza earlier this month. It’s still unclear how long the Brazilian will be sidelined from training. Gadelha told MMA Fighting days after the split decision victory that she hurt her knee less than two weeks before UFC 225 and needed to work with UFC Performance Institute physiotherapist to make sure she was able to compete in Chicago. Gadelha vs. Esparza was five years in the making, since the Brazilian was forced out of a pair of fights with “The Cookie Monster” back in their Invicta FC days. Esparza accused her longtime rival of cheating and greasing before UFC 225 and asked for a rematch, and Gadelha said she doesn’t mind fighting her a second time. Afficher l’article complet
  10. The 10th Annual World MMA Awards has its host. Fighters Only Magazine CEO Rob Hewitt announced today that actor Jeremy Piven will host the show. Fighters Only Magazine is again putting on the annual awards, and a black-tie ceremony is set for July 3 at Pearl Theater at Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas. It coincides with the UFC’s annual International Fight Week, which concludes with UFC 226 on July 7. “This year’s Awards show is very special for Fighters Only Magazine,” Hewtt said in a statement. “We needed someone special at the helm, and I am elated to have Jeremy in charge of our 10th annual event. Like many of today’s major celebrities, he is an MMA aficionado, and he will raise this year’s show to another level of entertainment and celebration of our sport and the achievements of those who work so hard within it.” Piven, a Golden Globe and three-time Emmy Award winner, is best known for his role as Ari Gold in the hit HBO series “Entourage.” In 2015, Piven reprised his role as Ari Gold for the “Entourage” film, which featured an appearance by then-UFC women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey. Tickets for the ceremony are currently on sale, and they start at $55 (plus fees). Voting has closed for the awards.

  11. Dana White’s Contender Series 11 has been saved. Greg Rebello has a replacement opponent for his light heavyweight bout after Mexico’s Oscar Ivan Cota was forced to withdraw because of visa issues. Angel DeAnda has accepted an offer on six days’ notice to replace Cota and fight Rebello, a UFC official confirmed to MMAjunkie following an initial report from Dana White’s Contender Series 11 takes place June 26 at The Ultimate Fighter Gym in Las Vegas. The event’s entire card streams live on UFC Fight Pass. Rebello (24-8), who trains with Team Sityodtong and Tri-Force MMA, has won his past two fights, stopping both opponents in the first round via knockout. The 36-year-old gets a second crack at the Contender Series after his appearance at the inaugural event ended in a first-round knockout loss to Azunna Anyanwu. It’s also a second chance for DeAnda, 33, who was submitted by Dan Spohn in the first round of their bout at DWCS 2 last summer. DeAnda (18-6) hasn’t fought since but was winner of six consecutive bouts prior to that defeat.

  12. The return of women’s MMA pioneer Kaitlin Young is one of several fights announced recently by the Japanese RIZIN promotion for their Aug. 12 event. Young, who last fought in 2014 and has spent time working as Invicta FC’s matchmaker in the interim, will meet Reina Miura in a 143-pound bout at RIZIN 12 in Nagoya, Japan. Young (7-9-1), a Minnesota native, had recently tried out for The Ultimate Fighter 28. She looks to snap a four-fight losing streak in the bout with Miura. Miura, a 21-year-old Tokyo native, has a 9-1 record with six finishes. She brings a two-fight win streak into the bout. The main event for the RIZIN 12 card is a lightweight matchup between Yusuke Yachi and Bruno Carvalho. Yachi, of Tokyo, boats a 20-6 record and is on a six-fight win streak, a run which includes wins over Diego Nunes, Takanori Gomi, and Daron Cruickshank. Carvalho (10-5), of Curitiba, Brazil, makes his RIZIN debut against Yachi. He’s won two of his past three fights, but hasn’t competed since Oct. 2016.

  14. CHICAGO – The weigh-ins are in the books for the second Professional Fighters League show. PFL 2 takes place Thursday at the historic Chicago Theatre on State Street in downtown Chicago. The main card airs on MSNBC following prelims on Facebook. In the main event, former Bellator champion Will Brooks (18-4) takes on Luiz Firmino (20-8) in a regular season matchup in the lightweight division. The fighters will be looking to earn points to qualify for the playoffs. Brooks weighed in at 156 pounds. Firmino was 154.5. PFL’s inaugural season started two weeks ago. There are 12-man fields in each of six divisions. After a two-fight regular season for each of them, the top eight will qualify for the playoffs this fall, and the winners in each division will get a guaranteed $1 million prize.

UFC vets Ronny Markes and Sean O’Connell were on point for their light heavyweight bout at 206 and 205, respectively. Only Efrain Escudero was off the mark for his lightweight fight against Jason High. High was 155.5, but Escudero, who took the bout on just six days’ notice, was 162. That means he cannot accumulate any points in the fight, regardless of a win. Also on the main card, two-time Olympic judo gold medalist Kayla Harrison makes her much-anticipated MMA debut. She was 155 for her lightweight fight against Brittney Elkin, who was 155.5. After this debut, Harrison will move down to featherweight for future fights. The ceremonial weigh-ins took place in the Chicago Theatre lobby. Check out the highlights in the video and photo gallery above. And for more on PFL 2, check out the MMA Rumors section of the site.

  15. After a five-year stint with the UFC, veteran heavyweight Josh Barnett has been released from his contract. Two people with knowledge of the situation, including a UFC official, informed MMAjunkie of Barnett’s release. They asked to remain anonymous because the news had not yet been made public. Barnett’s release from his contract does not carry any stipulations and is considered a full separation from the UFC. The move comes three months after the 40-year-old fighter was exonerated by the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency for a failed drug test, receiving only a public warning from the UFC’s anti-doping partner. Related Trading Shots: Should Josh Barnett's case make us rethink USADA in the UFC? How Josh Barnett's USADA arbitration could be a game-changer for UFC fighters It’s unclear exactly what led to Barnett’s release rather than a return to the octagon, where he most recently defeated ex-champ Andrei Arlovski at UFC Fight Night 93 in September 2016. Calls to the fighter and his management weren’t immediately returned. Barnett expressed dismay with the results management process for his failed drug test. While he still wanted to compete, he said he didn’t trust USADA. An out-of-competition test of Barnett revealed the presence of ostarine, a selective androgen receptor modulator (SARM) that mimics anabolic agents and is banned year-round. Although USADA found he was the victim of a contaminated supplement, he faced a four-year suspension before ultimately going to arbitration with USADA. An independent arbitrator took note of Barnett’s meticulous record keeping of supplements and found he was not guilty of knowingly taking ostarine. Barnett later sued the supplement maker.

  17. Bellator has added another young talent to one of its weight classes in need. Bantamweight prospect Ricky Bandejas has inked an exclusive, multi-fight deal with Bellator, an official today told MMAjunkie. Financial terms of the contract were not released. Through his 11 career fights, Bandejas (10-1 MMA, 0-0 BMMA) has competed exclusively under the Cage Fury Fighting Championship organization, which is based out of his native New Jersey and has helped develop UFC notables such as Jim Miller, Aljamain Sterling, Anthony Smith, and more. Related Bellator signs unbeaten 6-foot-8 heavyweight Steven Mowry to multi-fight deal Bandejas, 26, most recently competed at CFFC 69 in December, where he scored a fourth-round knockout of Nick Mamalis to claim the organization’s interim bantamweight championship. The signing of Bandejas is a welcomed addition for Bellator’s 135-pound division, which, according to the company website, currently has just 11 fighters signed. A date and location for Bandejas’ Bellator debut have not been scheduled at this time. For more on the Bellator schedule, check out the MMA Rumors section of the site.

  20. UFC women’s flyweight Jessica-Rose Clark didn’t expect her opinions about Greg Hardy to be received well. After Clark (9-4 MMA, 2-0 UFC) declared she was “very against” the former NFL star receiving a UFC development deal for his performance on Dana White’s Contender Series 9, she figured her opinion would be met with public backlash. But for the most part, the opposite happened. Related UFC fighter, domestic violence victim Jessica-Rose Clark 'very against' Greg Hardy's UFC deal “I received a lot of support,” Clark, who on Saturday faces Jessica Eye on Saturday at UFC Fight Night 132, told MMAjunkie. “I only saw three people reacting negatively, and the things that those people said were (expletive) disgusting. So I’m led to believe the people that said that aren’t of very reputable character anyway. “But 99.9 percent of the responses I got were extremely supportive, and they were happy that someone was actually speaking honestly and truthfully about the situation. I know how the general public reacts to domestic violence, and especially within an elite sport. So I’m happy that it was so positive.” Clark, a domestic violence survivor, isn’t sure whether her words will have any effect on what the UFC does with Hardy, who was convicted in 2014 on a pair of domestic abuse charges, only to have them expunged on appeal when the alleged victim didn’t testify. Related DWCS 9 recap: Here's Michael Bisping's advice for UFC hopeful Greg Hardy UFC heavyweight Derrick Lewis on Greg Hardy: 'I really don't like guys like that' “Sometimes, it just takes one person to stand up,” Clark said. “So I don’t know. We’ll see what happens.” After Hardy sealed his UFC deal with a first-round knockout last week on the Contender Series, UFC President Dana White said he’d like to see the fighter compete on the last episode of the contender series. Then Hardy would fight on the White-led reality show “Looking for a Fight” before evaluating whether he’s ready for the UFC. As far as Clark’s career goes, she feels it’s on the upswing. She’s had the best fight week of her career preparing to face Eye, whom she meets on the UFC Fight Pass-streamed main card at Singapore Indoor Stadium in Singapore. Related No, Greg Hardy's UFC opportunity isn't about second chances or redemption – it's about money Greg Hardy willing to face continued criticism while he chases UFC glory Although Clark doesn’t put much stock in the UFC’s rankings, she said Eye makes sense as a follow-up after her win over Paige VanZant. “There was no downside to this fight for me, other than I’m going to get hit a few times,” Clark said. “She’s got solid hands.” Clark rued the attention given to VanZant for suffering a broken arm during the fight, but Clark said every bit of attention she’s earned for herself. The Eye matchup will be no different. “I’m always trying to make my name in the UFC,” she said. For more on UFC Fight Night 132, check out the UFC Rumors section of the site.

  26. Une conférence de presse s'est tenue ce matin pour présenter l'event du RIZIN 12 qui se tiendra au Dolphins Arena d'Aichi le 12 août 2018, soit 2 semaines seulement après le RIZIN 11. A cette occasion 5 combats ont été annoncés. Superfight -70,0kg: Yusuke Yachi (Japon, 20-6) VS Bruno Carvalho (Brésil, 10-5) Yusuke yachi est en train de s'imposer comme la nouvelle star du MMA japonais par sa fougue et son style agressif. Au RIZIN, il ne cesse d'enchaîner les victoires, bien que son dernier combat se soit soldé par une décision face à Diego Nunes. Justement, lors de ce RIZIN 12, il aura l'occasion de se mesurer à Bruno Carvalho, un coéquipier de Diego Nunes, mais dont le dernier combat remonte en octobre 2016. A priori un défi facilement surmontable pour Yachi. Superfight féminin -65,0kg: King Reina (Japon, 9-1) VS Kaitlin Young (Etats-Unis, 7-9) King Reina avait connu la première défaite de sa carrière en MMA lors du New Year Event de l'année dernière face à la belge Cindy Dandois. Une défaite qu'elle a rapidement digéré en enchaînant deux victoires consécutives au DEEP par TKO et soumission. Elle affrontera pour son retour au RIZIN, l'américaine Kaitlin Young quiest une des pionnières du MMA féminin et qui a écumé de nombreuses organisations. Malheureusement pour cette dernière son palmarès n'est pas à son avantage avec notamment 4 défaites consécutives à l'Invicta FC, et un dernier combat en 2014... Superfight -66,0kg: Hatsu Hioki (Japon, 29-11) VS Mikuru Asakura (Japon, 4-2) Le retour de Hatsu Hioki dans une organisation majeure. Certains se souviennent de lui au Sengoku où il fut l'un des acteurs majeurs de l'organisation en devenant notamment champion Feather Weight, ou encore à l'UFC où il ne fit qu'un court passage. Hioki a écumé les organisation mineures et reste actuellement sur 2 défaites au Pancrase mais aura l'avantage et la motivation de combattre chez lui dans la région d'Aichi. Il aura pour adversaire Mikuru asakura, frère de Kai Asakura qui s'était illustré au New Year Event (KO sur Kizaemon Saiga) et lors du RIZIN 10 en battant l'angolais Manel Kape par décision. Mikuru Asakur possède un style agressif similaire à son frère, ce qui lui avait permis par le passé de remporter les ceintures des -65kg et des -70kg de l'organisation Outsiders (dont le palmarès ne figure plus sur Sherdog). Son contrat avec cette dernière s'étant terminé en mai, il rejoint les rangs du RIZIN pour un combat face à un technicien comme Hioki. Superfight -77,0kg: Strasser Kiichi (Japon, 19-7) VS Ryuichiro Sumimura (Japon, 14-5) Strasser Kiichi, récent transfuge de l'UFC a signé son retour au Japon par une belle victoire sur Satoru Kitaoka, tout en puissance lors du RIZIN à la fin de l'année dernière. Cependant son adversaire, Sumimura est l'actuel champion Welter Weight du DEEP et reste sur une belle série de 6 victoires, la plupart en finissant son adversaire. Une opposition entre deux combattants prometteurs. Superfight Heavy Weight -120,0kg: Roque Martinez (Etats-Unis, 12-4) VS Kiyoshi "Samurai Mark Hunt" Kuwabara (Japon, 10-8) Roque Martinez s'était illustré en octobre dernier en soumettant Jérome Le Banner au RIZIN et reste par la même occasion sur 7 victoires. Il affrontera le japonais Kiyoshi Kuwabara, connu plus communément sous le nom de "Samurai Mark Hunt" en référence à son idole. Ce dernier a fait l'essentiel de sa carrière au ROAD FC en Corée du Sud mais reste sur deux défaites consécutives. Les deux combattants devront prouver qu'ils peuvent s'affirmer plus que les poids lourds prospectés par le RIZIN et qui n'ont guère convaincu. Les organisateurs voudraient que Yusuke Yachi tienne la tête d'affiche de cet event et deux autres combattants ont été confirmés: - Yuki Motoya - Kanako Murata Il se pourrait également que Tenshin Nasukawa fasse partie de cet event s'il ne participe pas au RIZIN 11 en raison d'une blessure contracté en début juin lors d'un combat rudement remporté face à un kickboxeur thaïlandais.
