Jon Jones injured, UFC title fight against Daniel Cormier postponed

Jon Jones and Daniel Cormier will have to wait a few extra months to get their hands on one another again. The two bitter rivals were set to fight for Jones’ light heavyweight UFC title Sept. 27 but an injury to the champ has forced the UFC to postpone the bout until Jan. 3, according to a new report.

Fox Sports 1 first reported the news of Jones’ injury and MMA Fighting expanded on it with additional details. According to that report, Jones sprained an ankle and suffered a torn meniscus during a wrestling practice Monday.

Cormier responded to the news by saying, “It’s very disappointing.”

“I started to train very hard. It’s a little discouraging, but now I have time to get completely healthy. I don’t know how hurt Jon is but we have to remember that I took this fight with a pre-existing injury. I could have fought through it, I just wish he would have done the same.”

Cormier himself opted out of corrective knee surgery in order to replace Alexander Gustafsson after the Swede injured one of his knees and had to pull out of a Sept. 27 title rematch against Jones. It is unknown, at present, if Cormier will opt to get his knee surgery now that his fight against Jones has been delayed, or if he will continue to rehab and train with his injured ligaments.

We will keep you posted as news develops with this story.

UFC’s TJ Grant considered retirement after concussion

TJ Grant’s nasty knockout of former title-challenger Gray Maynard in May, 2013, was a violent and impressive feat that earned the Canadian a shot at the UFC lightweight title. Unfortunately, because of a concussion sustained while he trained for a UFC 164 bout against then-champion Benson Henderson, Grant has still not fought again since that win over Maynard.

To this day, Grant is dealing with the brain injury he sustained during training and does not know when he’ll be able to return to competition. In a recent interview with Luke Thomas, Grant revealed that this past winter he considered retiring from fighting out of frustration.

“Yup, I did,” he said.

“I probably did that a lot over the winter. It just got frustrating. I just tried take it one day at a time. I love fighting. I don’t know what my life would be without somehow being involved in the sport. There were just times where you have all these really negative thoughts and you’re bitter and all this other stuff. I feel pretty good. It’s all in the past. Still, my health comes number one and my family and all that, but fighting is definitely a huge part of my life. I definitely don’t want to go out on that type of note.”

Grant went on to say that he has been feeling better, of late, and believes that he is approaching 100 percent capabilities once more. “I’ve been feeling pretty good for a while. If you don’t feel normal – and there’s definitely been days where, do I feel normal? No – but when I feel good, I feel good,” he said.

“I’m getting pretty close to feeling 100 percent normal, but still a little bit of a hurdle.”

Although he admitted to not being able to know for sure if it will end up being possible, Grant said that he hopes to be back fighting in the fall. “My goals are to get back in there this fall,” he said.

“It’s kinda beyond my control, but I think just being in this state for so long, I know my head’s good, but I’ve been having some issues with my neck and I want to make sure I can get everything sorted out and reset my body. It’s been in state for so long that I don’t know if it’s my brain’s telling my body there’s pain or there’s inflammation or what. Hopefully I can get this fixed up in the next bit.”

Since losing his title shot, Grant has had to watch others fill-in and hit new heights in his place. Anthony Pettis is now the UFC lightweight champion and Gilbert Melendez will get the next crack at gold.

Vitor Belfort: ‘Chris Weidman would be crazy to stand with me’

Lyoto Machida may think that UFC middleweight champion Chris Weidman can successfully stand and strike with challenger Vitor Belfort but “The Phenom” himself believes he’ll have the clear advantage there when they fight at UFC 181. ”He will fight standing against me only if he’s crazy,” Belfort said in a recent interview.

Belfort, who once won a UFC heavyweight tournament and then, later, won the UFC light heavyweight title from Randy Couture after a glove-edge from a missed punch sliced an eye lid of “The Natural,” believes that he’ll be considered a true three-division champion should he beat Weidman. And, while many fighters often say they simply concentrate on themselves during training camps, Belfort says he’s training to specifically exploit perceived weaknesses in the champ.

“I’m ready to have a third world title at a third different weight class,” Belfort said.

“I see a lot of openings from him and I’m studying this game since last year. I’m not focusing in his strengths but in his weaknesses and we saw that he has a lot.”

Matt Mitrione vs. Derrick Lewis set for UFC Fight Night 50

http://www.mmafighting.com/2014/7/9/…-for-ufc-fight

UFC Fight Night 50 just got a whole lot more punchy.

Heavyweights with proven knockout power will square off at the Sept. 5 card at Foxwoods Casino near Ledyard, Conn., when Matt Mitrione meets Derrick Lewis. FOXSports.com initially reported the bout Wednesday.

Mitrione, a 35-year-old former NFL player from Illinois, was scheduled to meet Stefan Struve at UFC 175 last weekend. That matchup was scrapped at the last moment due to Struve’s health scare in the locker room at Mandalay Bay. Mitrione was awarded both his win and show money for the cancelled bout, but asked to be placed into another fight as soon as possibly.

Lewis, meanwhile, has turned heads in his first two fights due to his ferocious punching power. The 29-year old from New Orleans called "The Black Beast" finished Guto Innocente on Sunday night at the TUF 10 Finale.

Lewis carries an 11-2 record into the bout; Mitrione is 7-3. They’ve scored knockouts in a combined 16 of their 18 wins, with Lewis getting 10 and Mitrione six.
