So the news is that they tested/will test EVERYBODY (urine before and blood after), so who do you think is going to be popped?
Her reign will continue til she decides to quit or an old adversary (Cyborg) finally heads down. At 135lbs Cyborg will be at a significant disadvantage losing her muscles, power, and most likely her stamina. It’s been awhile since I’ve seen a domination as complete as this. The last was with Anderson for a good six years or so.
After staying undefeated at UFC 184 on Saturday night in Los Angeles, Ronda Rousey is doing something special in the sport of mixed martial arts. That’s made all the more true when one factors in her dispatching of top contender Cat Zingano in a mere 14 seconds in the first round.
The domination she’s showing is so impressive, it’s drawing comparisons to the peak reign of former boxing heavyweight champion Mike Tyson. Just as Tyson would dispatch seemingly top contenders with ease, Rousey is doing just that. It’s not a contest of whether she’ll beat her opposition, but how fast.
"There’s no doubt about it," UFC president Dana White said at the post-fight presser when asked about whether it was appropriate to make the comparison between Rousey and Tyson.
"She is – without a doubt – that female version of him," he continued. "I told her. We just talked about this. It got to a point with the Tyson thing where…well, tonight. Let’s talk about tonight.
"You guys have been around the fight game a long time," White told the media. "There’s very few situations where a fight goes 14 seconds and the crowd is cheering and going crazy, looking at each other with their mouths open."
According to White, however, that’s just what happened at the Staples Center on Saturday night. And there’s a very good reason for it, he noted.
"Everybody knows how awesome Ronda is, but everybody was looking at everybody with their mouths open because she was fighting Cat Zingano. This was going to be a tough-ass fight."
After moving to 11-0 in her professional fighting career, White believes Rousey is so far past her contemporaries that there’s no way to deny her.
"Ronda is definitely there," White reaffirmed. "That’s exactly what she reminds me of. The answer is yes."
Sounds like the UFC told Kelvin to fight or get cut, they werent willing to lose a co-main. Even though it’s clear he shouldent be fighting in this condition.
Dr. Johnny Benjamin:
"Farrar, the head coach of Yuma MMA, said Gastelum "became non-responsive" and began vomiting. This was a little more than 24 hours before Gastelum was supposed to meet Tyron Woodley at UFC 183 on Saturday night at the MGM Grand. I was scared," said Farrar, a former WEC fighter. "I’ve never had an athlete do that before. That’s the long and short of it.
Farrar isn’t sure if the UFC pressured Gastelum into fighting, because he wasn’t in on those meetings. "My impression could lean toward that, but again, I didn’t hear any of the discussions," Farrar said. Farrar still doesn’t feel that great about the entire situation. The Nevada Athletic Commission (NAC) did clear Gastelum to compete, though, and it’s what Gastelum wants to do. "I always leave these decisions up to Kelvin," Farrar said. "I’m a coach. Of course, I’m a support system. Do I think that he’s 100 percent? I do not, no."
Dr. Johnny Benjamin:
"Hard to believe that any respectable physician cleared a fighter that required hospital care for flu this week to compete in MMA tomorrow!"
You americans proboly wonder who Neymar is. He might be the biggest sports star in the world right now.
ComingÂ the day before the sport’s three biggest promotions, the UFC, Bellator and the World Series of Fighting, all staged televised fight cards, the news hasn’t gotten all that much attention.
But featherweight Leonard Garcia’s decision to retire following a loss to Daniel Pineda at Legacy FC 37 was a stinging blow to mixed martial arts.
Garcia was never the most talented fighter, but he gave every ounce of what he had to give every time out, and he’ll be remembered as one of the most exciting fighters of his generation.
Garcia, 35, retires with a pedestrian 18-13-1 mark. In his biggest bout, he was submitted by Mike Brown via triangle choke in the first round in a bout for the World Extreme Cagefighting featherweight title.
But it’s not titles or significant wins that made Garcia so memorable. It was his desire to put on a show, a willingness to accept two punches to land one, that made him popular and makes his retirement a dark day for the sport’s fan base.
He won Fight of the Night four times in the UFC and twice in the WEC. He also had a Knockout of the Night in the WEC and his April 24, 2010, bout at WEC 48 with Chan Sung Jung, aka “The Korean Zombie,” remains high on the list of any fans’ compilation of top MMA bouts.
Garcia fought in a division with men infinitely more talented, but he made himself a name by sheer heart and desire.
The sport would be better with a lot more fighters with the fighting spirit that Garcia brought every time out to the cage.
Details are scarce so far, but rumours are stating that: "the suit alleges that UFC parent company Zuffa violated antitrust laws by using its industry-leader status to cripple the free market."
The way things are going, the middleweight title fight between Chris Weidman and Vitor Belfort may never occur.
For the third time, a planned bout between the men has been postponed. Weidman suffered a rib injury in training and the UFC announced on Friday that he will be unable to defend his belt against the Brazilian slugger in the main event of UFC 184 on Feb. 28 at Staples Center in Los Angeles.
The new main event will feature women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey against No. 1 contender Cat Zingano. The UFC moved the debut of former boxing champion Holly Holm into the co-main event spot against Raquel Pennington.
It’s quite a blow to the card, because a Holm-Pennington bout has nowhere near the kind of buzz that the Weidman-Belfort match did.
This is the third time one or the other of the men has pulled out of the bout. They were first supposed to fight at UFC 173 at the MGM Grand Garden in Las Vegas on May 24, 2014. But Belfort had problems with a drug test and withdrew his request for a license from the Nevada Athletic Commission.
When Belfort’s issues with the commission were settled in the summer, the UFC announced he would challenge Weidman for the belt in the main event of UFC 181 on Dec. 6 in Las Vegas. But Weidman injured a hand, forcing the postponement of the bout until Feb. 28.
Now, Weidman is out and the timetable for his return is uncertain.
The card is far less attractive without Weidman-Belfort and will test Rousey’s drawing power in her hometown.
Name only 3. Mine:
– Siver KO’s McGregor
– Siver KO’s McGregor
– Belfort get’s caught roiding again
– Kimbo Slice pulls higher numbers than anyone in the UFC
Don’t just fucking rust right in, you will end up being reversed and sub’d like the no plan having cardboard twat you are.
How many times have we seen a Kickboxer wrestle a BJJ black belt, or a BJJ guy get knocked out trying to box?
Last night puzzled me. RUSHING Honda? That was the plan? seriously!?!?!?
Cat said "fuck…..fuck" Well, we have all been saying " whoa fuck" to Honda’s fights since she stepped in the cage! Welcome to reality Cat!
