Anthony Johnson wants catchweight fight with Alistair Overeem

Anthony Johnson is one of the hottest light heavyweights in the UFC, but he still wouldn’t mind locking up with down-and-out heavyweight Alistair Overeem. The two former teammates have exchanged insults and allegations in recent weeks, with Johnson saying that Overeem was a selfish and dangerous training partner back when he did work with the Blackzilians team in Florida.

“I’ll fight him, I don’t care. I’ve already trained with him before. Why not? To me it’s just a fight. If the fans want to see it, I’m down to do it. I ain’t said ‘no’ to any fight ever,” Johnson claimed in a recent interview.

“I’d meet him at a catchweight. If he wanted to meet me at 225, let’s do it. Or whatever, 220, I’d do that. Or I’d meet at 230 at the dot, if he was down to go that far. Let’s do it. Even if I fought him, it’s a dangerous fight. He’s still got weapons that are crazy. He was hitting Ben with some crazy knees. He’s a dangerous fighter still, but I’d definitely test him.”

The heavyweight class weight limit is 265 pounds and Overeem has often been close to that mark. Johnson used to compete in the UFC’s welterweight division.

Johnson has also won his last eight fights and Overeem has lost three out of his last four. As such, each man is on a quite different path in their respective division.

Clearly, AJ is confident in his skills after sparring with Overeem in the gym. The smaller man insists that he would take the fight, simply because of personal animosity and acknowledges that Overeem would be a dangerous fight for him.

“I don’t have anything against him as a fighter,” he said.

“I think he’s a beast when it comes to fighting. My things were other personal stuff.”

Brandon Vera signs with ONE FC…ns-with-one-fc

Following his UFC release, ONE FC has signed ‘the Truth’ Brandon Vera.

Brandon Vera has been representing the Philippines during his entire fighting career, but while he has had countless visits throughout the years, the Filipino-American fighter has never fought in the country itself. Once thought to be the perfect mainstay for a card in Manila, Vera never really had a chance to compete in front of Filipinos as the promotion kept delaying that long overdue event in Manila.

Following his UFC release though, ‘The Truth’ will now likely have a chance to do so at the later stages of his career, as the 36-year-old fighter has signed on with ONE Fighting Championship. The Asian promotion made the announcement through social media saying that the former UFC contender will be making his debut later this year.

Vera is 12-7-1 in his career, but only has recorded 1 win since that highly controversial loss to Randy Couture back in 2009. He has recently moved back up to heavyweight, bulking up to over 240 lbs. He last competed on August of last year, originally losing by TKO to Ben Rothwell, who ended up failing a drug test for elevated testosterone.

ONE FC’s heavyweight division, like with most promotions in the world, is a bit thin. Vera’s signing not only will serve as an instant draw with Filipinos, but he will also add some much needed depth on a line up that includes James McSweeney, Tony Johnson, Paul Cheng, and Chi Lewis Parry.

Roger Huerta vs. Christian Holley highlights latest additions to ONE FC 19…ditions-to-one

A trio of bouts have been officially added to ONE Fighting Championship’s upcoming quadruple-header, including the return of onetime UFC standout Roger Huerta.

Huerta (21-7-1, 1 NC), a lightweight who currently serves as head wrestling coach at Tiger Muay Thai in Phunket, Thailand, has been out of competition since suffering a brutal second-round knockout loss via soccer kick to Zorobabel Moreira in June 2012. Counting the Moreira loss, Huerta holds just a 1-6 record over his last seven contests.

"It woke me up. I’ll be honest," the 31-year-old told of the slump last year. "I blame myself. … I don’t want to say I was self-destructive, but I just didn’t care for my well-being, I suppose. I was just doing things to do them."

Having turned around his life, Huerta now returns to challenge undefeated newcomer Christian Holley (10-0) at ONE FC 19. The Englishman is a formidable finisher, having ended seven of his 10 victories inside the first round.

ONE FC 19 is scheduled to take place August 29, 2014 at Dubai’s World Trade Centre in the United Arab Emirates. Four championship bouts headline the event, including the return of ONE FC lightweight titleholder Shinya Aoki and the sophomore showing of former Bellator welterweight champion Ben Askren.

Also newly announced for the card are match-ups between former WBO boxing champion Ana Julaton vs. Irina Mazepa (0-0), and featherweights Herbert Burns (3-0) vs. Hiroshige Tanaka (10-1).

An updated ONE FC 19 fight card can be seen below.

Nobutatsu Suzuki vs. Ben Askren (welterweight title)
Shinya Aoki vs. Kamal Shalorus (lightweight title)
Koji Oishi vs. TBA (featherweight title)
TBA vs. TBA (vacant middleweight title)

Zuffa puts entire UFC 175 event on Youtube for free.

Somebody fucked up good and is getting fired for this.

I’m kind of pissed. Can I get my $55 back? I paid $55 for an event that has a fight cancelled and then is given away for free immediately?
