  5. Cain Velasquez | Esther Lin, MMA Fighting Cain Velasquez has bid a fond farewell to his past life and is eagerly embracing his new one. On Monday, the two-time UFC heavyweight champion issued a statement on social media in which he addressed his departure from the promotion he’s called home since 2008. Velasquez, 37, is currently pursuing a career as a professional wrestler and he recently signed with World Wrestling Entertainment. In his post, Velasquez thanks the UFC while mentioning his dream of winning the heavyweight title and says “it’s time for the next chapter.” He then goes on to explain that he has fully immersed himself in professional wrestling training and that he expects to become a champion in the WWE in the future. See Velasquez’s full statement below. @ufc @WWE Thank you. Muchas gracias. #WWECrownJewel pic.twitter.com/k8axrZMRnW — Cain Velasquez (@cainmma) October 14, 2019 To the UFC, my family, friends, and all the fans, thank you for the past 11 years. Thank you to all my coaches, teammates and agents. I am so blessed to have been able to have a career doing something I absolutely love. I knew from the time I was a junior in college I wanted to be a fighter and after graduating from college, I set off on my journey of becoming a fighter with the goal of being UFC Heavyweight champion. There are few people in this world that can say they have achieved what I have, and I am forever grateful for the opportunities and position I held being a part of the UFC. With my official retirement from the UFC, it’s time for the next chapter. A year ago, when I went to my first WWE show, I fell back in love with a sport that I had watched and participated in since I was a child. From that moment, I have been doing a crash course on all things that relate to pro wrestling. I’ve been training at different gyms, going to shows and watching more matches then (sic) I would like to admit, but I can honestly say I eat, sleep and breathe (sic) wrestling now. The contract is signed and I’m on my way to my next goal which is Universal Champion. WWE Universe, thank you for welcoming me with open arms. Afficher l’article complet

  8. Black-Belt/Adult/Male/Rooster - Final.
  9. Reinhold Matay-USA TODAY Sports Former UFC strawweight champion Joanna Jedrzejczyk had a really good weekend with a dominant performance over Michelle Waterson on Saturday night and then received some welcome news on Sunday. Following her five-round unanimous decision victory, Jedrzejczyk was forced to walk on crutches due to a badly swollen foot that definitely appeared to be broken. Despite the injury, she continued to throw her kicks throughout the fight as she secured a lopsided win and potentially put herself back in line for the next shot at the title. In the aftermath of her fight, Jedrzejczyk just assumed that she would receive the diagnosis of a broken foot when getting x-rays the next day and that’s when she got some surprising results from her physician. “It’s good news,” Jedrzejczyk told MMA Fighting on Monday while confirming she didn’t suffer a broken foot after all. “Both feet are very swollen but it’s good. I’m happy it’s not broken. I don’t need surgery. I will be back faster so I can fight faster.” Along with friends and members of her management team that accompanied her to the doctor, Jedrzejczyk was admittedly shocked when the results came back showing no broken bones in either foot. There is still some immense swelling that will take a few days to reduce but overall the former strawweight queen will be back on her feet in no time. “I was really surprised,” Jedrzejczyk said. “All the exams they did before when they touched the foot, they said oh it’s broken, it’s fractured but in the end when after I was at the [emergency room] yesterday morning, they came and told me that it was not broken. I was like really? “We were all really surprised. But it was good news. It was a good message. I need to rest, get better and I can be back to training sooner than later.” As debilitating as the injury probably should have been during the fight, Jedrzejczyk refused to take away one of her primary weapons, which did a ton of damage to Waterson over the course of 25 minutes. “After the fourth round, I decided to not kick anymore but in the fifth I did,” Jedrzejczyk said. “I’m a warrior. I was like if it’s broken, what worse can happen? It’s going to be broken in three or four pieces, they’re going to put it back together in one piece.” Now that she knows she didn’t suffer a broken foot, Jedrzejczyk won’t have to take as much time off before hopefully booking her next fight. Jedrzejczyk expects that will come at some point in 2020 against reigning strawweight champion Weili Zhang, who just captured the belt in August with a stunning first-round knockout against Jessica Andrade. “I wouldn’t have signed this agreement for the fight with Michelle Waterson if my next fight wasn’t going to be for the belt. My next is going to be for the belt,” Jedrzejczyk said. “If they make me wait, I will wait but I sent a strong message with this fight.” It had been a tumultuous two-year span in Jedrzejczyk’s career after she lost the strawweight title to Rose Namajunas in Nov. 2017, came up just short in the rematch and eventually moved up to 125 pounds for a flyweight title fight against Valentina Shevchenko. Now with both her mind and body in a good place, Jedrzejczyk is ready to climb back to the top of the mountain where she ruled the 115-pound weight class for more than two years. “I think I sent a strong message to all the strawweights that Joanna is back from the edge and they don’t know what to expect,” Jedrzejczyk said. “I fought for three rounds not with a broken foot but a very swollen foot, it was painful but I did my best. I feel like you could see I can adjust. You can have the perfect plan through the first punch but then you have to take the fight second by second. “I sent a strong message. They don’t know what to expect.” Afficher l’article complet

Leslie Smith (pictured) fights Arlene Blencowe in a featherweight bout at Bellator 233 in Thackerville, Okla., on Nov. 8. | Bellator MMA The next contender for Bellator’s featherweight title could emerge soon. On Monday, officials told MMA Fighting that Leslie Smith (11-7-1) and Arlene Blencowe (12-7) will fight on the main card of Bellator 233 on Nov. 8 at WinStar World Casino in Thackerville, Okla.

Smith previously fought Cyborg in a 140-pound catchweight bout at UFC 198, with Cyborg winning by first-round TKO, and Blencowe has already fought once for the Bellator title, losing a split decision to Budd at Bellator 189.

  15. Orlando Ramirez-USA TODAY Sports UFC Mexico was a mixed bag for many, including bantamweight contender Irene Aldana. The event, which took place this past month at Arena Ciudad de Mexico in Mexico City, hosted one of Aldana’s most impressive and dominant wins in her MMA career. It was also her first UFC outing in her home country, and her first win since a setback to Raquel Pennington that snapped a three-fight winning streak. But along with those positives, UFC Mexico also saw some very controversial results, which brought more controversial reactions from the crowd that night in Mexico. “It was a behavior that embarrassed me a lot, and I feel ashamed of that,” Aldana told MMAFighting. “I wasn’t expecting that they were going to act that way, or anything of that level. It was very rude.” In the headliner between Yair Rodriguez and Jeremy Stephens, a commission doctor waived-off the highly anticipated fight just 15 seconds in after an accidental eye poke from Rodriguez rendered Stephens unable to continue. And in the co-main event, an exciting, back-and-forth battle between former strawweight champion Carla Esparza and Alexa Grasso ended in a majority decision win for Esparza. Many thought Grasso had done enough to win, and they loudly booed the result. The unfavorable results for Mexican fighters led to one of the most hostile and disrespectful crowd reactions in UFC history. Both Stephens and Esparza had beer thrown on them and had to be escorted out of the arena by security. “The fact someone poured beer on Carla is a complete insult,” Aldana said. “I wouldn’t like to fight somewhere and have beer poured on me. I think this is something that you can’t let slide or tolerate. I think we need to talk to the people. It’s not really anyone’s fault. These things happen, and I understand that people get angry and get upset. But that’s not the way to be heard. “I’m very proud of Mexico and the people of Mexico, and I know that it wasn’t everyone –only a few. It’s not fair that for those few people, everyone has to pay the price. It was very disappointing to see that disrespect from the public. My dad had beer thrown at him. “I just want to publicly apologize to everyone who was affected at the event and outside of it, because that’s not an image that we want to portray. Maybe they were too passionate – plus, some alcohol (was involved). But either way, it’s not justifiable.” Aldana doesn’t believe the attack towards Stephens and Esparza was personal, but more toward the controversial results for both bouts. “I don’t think the attack was directly towards them,” Aldana said. “The person that threw the beer on Carla had to be drunk and upset about what happened, and I wish that wouldn’t have happened. But I’m happy they stopped him, (and) from what I was told, the guards were able to spot the guy and detain him. “The Mexican people are very warm and receive people who are visiting very well. That was just a moment of anger towards the decision, the judges (and) the outcome. I hope they don’t feel personally attacked and understand that it was just the fault of a few people who got out of hand. We don’t have to generalize.” Esparza also alluded that the incident was fueled by a few “bad apples” in the crowd in her post-fight scrum with the media. But despite it being an issue only involving a some fans, Aldana is concerned that the UFC might be discouraged from returning to Mexico. “I loved fighting in Mexico, and I would love to fight here again, but I’m not too sure the UFC wants to come back after what happened,” she said. “It be a real shame to see them not come back and lose the opportunity to fight in Mexico again because of the few idiots in the crowd. “I think that can happen, and I wouldn’t blame them if they don’t want to return. Maybe they can take certain measures like stop selling alcohol at a certain time. I know it’s nice to be there as a spectator having your beers and all that. But I do think there are strategies worth looking at to make sure crowds don’t get out of control and avoid these type of things.” Despite the unfortunate situation with the crowd, the win over Vanessa Melo at UFC Mexico was still a very important moment in Aldana’s career. Now ranked eighth in the division and being 4-1 in her last five outings, Aldana will continue to look to climb the 135-pound ladder. “Robles” is happy with her performance that night in Mexico, and her progression in her game. “I’ve had harder fights in the UFC, harder opponents, but this was a different test because it was against someone I didn’t really know what they were going to bring to the fight,” Aldana explained. “I wasn’t sure of her fighting style, so it was something that I had to figure out in the moment, but I felt really good. “I was actually more happy with the fact that I felt very comfortable in the Octagon, and I tried new things than the actual victory. I experimented with new techniques that in the past I wouldn’t have dared to try, a lot of new kicks, knees, and a little bit of everything.” Aldana hoped to get a rematch with Pennington next after hearing of Holly Holm’s injury. But she was informed by the UFC that they’re looking to rebooked the matchup for a later date. Regardless, the 31-year-old fighter still got high-profile bout, as she was recently booked to take on second ranked contender Ketlen Vieira at UFC 245 in December. Afficher l’article complet

  18. Ilir Latifi is making a big career change in hopes of turning things around. Latifi will move to heavyweight for his next bout, according to his team. Although Latifi never has missed weight at light heavyweight, he is coming off back-to-back losses for the first time in his career, against Corey Anderson and Volkan Oezdemir, respectively. Latifi (14-7 MMA, 7-5 UFC) fought his first two professional bouts at heavyweight in 2008, a no contest vs. current UFC fighter Blagoy Ivanov and a knockout win over Roman Mihocka. Latifi then made the move down to light heavyweight in 2009 and has competed at 205 pounds ever since. Latifi’s last win came in early 2018, when he scored a “Performance of the Night” submission win over Ovince Saint-Preux. But since then, the 36-year-old has suffered back-to-back losses. He most recently was knocked out by Oezdemir in August at UFC on ESPN+ 14. Latifi alluded to some news coming soon on Instagram.

  20. Pour Snyder et bourough cela ne m etonne pas, les cormier cejudo askren et compagnie leurs ont montré la route. Mais c'est vrai a cuba il y avait aussi se système amateur qui finalement fonctionner comme du pro. Après la chute du mur, tout est parti en cacahouète et de nombreux sportifs se sont retrouvés sans le sous. Et malheureusement beaucoup de lutteur, boxeur , nageur et champion de biathlon se sont lancés comme gros bras dans le crime organisé. Il y a aussi cette image que le mma a longtemps eu en Russie, des combats plus ou moins sous la coupe criminelle et surtout les salles d entraînements, des poles emplois pour gros bras. En Russie il y a énormément de tournois local ( au daghestan et ossetie c esrmt presque tous les weeks end) , championnat régional, inter régional, coupe style coupe yargin, coupe poddubny etc... ( qui en général réuni russe et ex bloc soviétique). Certains comme le championnat du daghestan et du nord caucase sont extrêmement relevé ( si cela t intéresse il y a un journaliste sur youtube qui retranscrit tous les tournois du caucase). Par exemple le dernier poddubny auquel j ai assisté , j ai vu Vlasov gagné le tournoi et aussi pas mal de l équipe national, ( j ai meme pu approcher l immortel Karelin qui presenter le tournoi ). Mais globalement ils participent beaucoup au tournoi internationaux aussi, meme plus que les Américains en greco. Je te dis pour le moment le statut de champion olympique est vraiment la priorité, surtout pour les lutteurs, mais l appât du gain en mma fait qu'il y aura de plus en plus qui se lanceront en pro et de plus en plus tôt. Le meilleur exemple c est l'Ossetie Nord Alanie , c est la région qui possède les meilleurs lutteurs de toutes la Russie pourtant très peu vont en mma. Deja Kadyrov a mis un sacré coup de fouet au mma nord caucasiens, d'ailleurs depuis beaucoup de tchetchene se lancent plus dans le mma pro que dans la lutte olympique. Tu les vois moins présent dans se sport que ceux du daghestan ou d'Ossetie, alors qu avant ils étaient à fond dedans. Au daghestan avec les investissements récent de la famille nurmagomedov et à moindre mesure de Magomedov un oligarques, sur un peu le meme modèle que kadyrov c est à dire créer des club pro et des situations financières stables pour les athlètes, le MMA va exploser et passer à un autre niveau. Mais le. jour ou les ossetes et les lutteurs de greco de novosibirsk se lanceront en MMA, je te laisse imaginer.

  22. TAMPA, Fla. – Eryk Anders beat Gerald Meerschaert with a split decision Saturday to open up the main card at UFC on ESPN+ 19 at Amalie Arena in Tampa, Fla. Take a look inside the fight with Anders, who has back-to-back wins to rebound from a three-fight skid. Result: Eryk Anders def. Gerald Meerschaert via split decision (29-28, 28-29, 29-28) Updated records: Anders (13-4 MMA, 5-4 UFC), Meerschaert (30-12 MMA, 5-4 UFC) Key stat: Meerschaert outstruck Anders 72-64, but came up short with the judges. Anders on the fight’s key moment “That first round, I dropped him once or twice. I think I could have gotten on top and got the finish. I train for 15 minutes, but it’s not what I like doing. I like finishes, and that’s what the fans like, too. That’s probably one of my more boring fights. It is what it is. I got in there and got the job done. (I’m) happy to cash at least two checks.” Anders on getting past his recent skid “(I’m) on another win streak, which feels good. (The) next fight for me is just wherever I fit in. They offer me fights, I sign the contract, show up, and try to get the job done.” Anders on what he wants next “I like to stay active. I took a little damage to my face, so going to get that checked out – should be fine. My training partner Walt Harris is the main event in (Washington), D.C. I used to live up around that way, so it would feel good to get back to my old stomping grounds and put on a performance there before the end of the year.” To hear more from Anders, check out the video of the full post-fight interview above.
