Matches to Make After UFC Fight Night ‘Werdum vs. Tybura’

Fabricio Werdum cements his spot atop the heavyweight division with the big win over Marcin Tybura! #UFCSydney https://t.co/hQcQ4amUw2 — FOX Sports: UFC (@UFCONFOX) November 19, 2017 Father Time has not yet billed Fabricio Werdum . The two-time Abu Dhabi Combat Club Submission Wrestling World Championships gold medalist kept his place in line near the top of the Ultimate Fighting Championship heavyweight division, as he took a three-round unanimous decision from Marcin Tybura in the UFC Fight Night 121 main event on Saturday at Qudos Bank Arena in Sydney. All three cageside judges sided with the 40-year-old Werdum: 50-45, 50-45 and 49-46. Tybura simply could not match the Brazilian’s output. Werdum kicked effectively to the legs, body and head while operating behind a penetrating jab. He consolidated his efforts with multi-punch volleys upstairs and occasional knee strikes to the head and body. Nothing Tybura tried seemed to give Werdum pause, as the Polish upstart was foiled in his bid for a fourth straight win. In the aftermath of UFC Fight Night “Werdum vs.

UFC Fight Night 121 ‘Werdum vs. Tybura’ Play-by-Play, Results & Round-by-Round Scoring

Jake Matthews vs. Bojan Velickovic Round 1 Matthews latches on to a single-leg in the first 30 seconds and runs Velickovic against the fence, working for an early takedown. Velickovic defends the shot and makes Matthews pay with some elbows to the side of the head. Matthews switches to a double but gets underhooked by Velickovic, breaking up the shot. Back to the single goes Matthews, who is still absorbing some hard elbows to the side of the head as he digs for the takedown. Halfway through the round, Matthews still has Velickovic pinned to the fence, alternating between a single- and double-leg, and occasionally an underhook. Velickovic just keeps his base wide up against the fence while punishing "The Celtic Kid" with elbows and punches. Matthews finally completes his takedown with 70 seconds on the clock, tries to mount but has to bail when Velickovic threatens with a heel hook. Velickovic catches the standing Matthews with a thudding upkick that lands heel-to-face. Velickovic gets back to his feet in the final seconds and finishes the round defending another Matthews shot. Sherdog Scores Jordan Breen scores the round 10-9 Velickovic Mike Fridley scores the round 10-9 Velickovic Chris Nelson scores the round 10-9 Velickovic Round 2 Velickovic catches the incoming Matthews with a switch knee, and when "The Celtic Kid" comes shooting in again, Velickovic is waiting with a guillotine.

Next time, I talked to my manager, I’m going to keep my weight stable and ask Reebok for (stretch material) so I can get accustomed to them. I don’t like (the shorts) tight.

5 Things You Might Not Know About Will Brooks

Will Brooks has not yet found his place in the Ultimate Fighting Championship -- a surprising twist in a career that saw him capture the Bellator MMA lightweight crown and win 19 of his first 20 bouts. Brooks will seek to snap a two-fight losing streak inside the Octagon when he faces Nik Lentz in a UFC Fight Night 121 prelim on Saturday at Qudos Bank Arena in Sydney. The 31-year-old Chicago native enters the cage on the heels of back-to-back defeats to Alex Oliveira and Charles Oliveira , the latter resulting in a standing rear-naked choke submission at UFC 210 in April. Brooks operates out of American Top Team in Coconut Creek, Florida, and has put together a strong resume that includes victories over “The Ultimate Fighter 9” winner Ross Pearson , Polish leg lock aficionado Marcin Held , Elevation Fight Team ’s Drew Dober and former Sengoku champion Satoru Kitaoka . He has delivered more than half (10) of his 19 professional wins by knockout, technical knockout or submission. As Brooks prepares for his pivotal three-round battle with the cagy Lentz, here are five things you might not know about him: 1.

Cris ‘Cyborg’ to Defend Featherweight Crown vs. Holly Holm at UFC 219 in Las Vegas

After reportedly being dead approximately one week ago, Cristiane Justino vs. Holly Holm is a done deal for UFC 219 . The promotion confirmed the women’s featherweight title bout on Thursday. It is currently unknown if Justino-Holm will serve as the headliner for UFC 219, which takes place at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on Dec. 30. The card includes a lightweight showdown between Khabib Nurmagomedov and Edson Barboza as well as a welterweight duel pitting Carlos Condit against Neil Magny . “Cyborg” captured the vacant featherweight title with a third round technical knockout of Tonya Evinger at UFC 2014 on July 29. The 32-year-old Brazilian has been angling for a bout with Holm since then, and both fighters have gone back and forth on social media regarding drug testing. Overall, Justino is 18-1 as a professional and has finished her first three UFC opponents. Holm, meanwhile, challenged for the inaugural 145-pound belt but lost a unanimous decision to Germaine de Randamie at UFC 208 on Feb. 11. The former bantamweight queen returned to 135 pounds in her next outing, scoring a third-round knockout victory over Bethe Correia at UFC Fight Night 111.

One Championship Reality Series to Feature Rich Franklin, Deliver Six-Figure Contract

Sign up now https://t.co/1JrTwtviTL pic.twitter.com/gMyS12EDtv — ONE Championship (@ONEChampionship) November 16, 2017 One Championship will be introducing a new reality series to help find mixed martial arts talent throughout Asia. The format will not be entirely unfamiliar to MMA fans, as the series will follow former UFC middleweight champion and One Championship vice president Rich Franklin “as he journeys throughout Asia to find the continent’s most promising undiscovered martial artists, and reward them with six-figure contracts to compete on the global stage of One Championship.” The show, entitled “ Rich Franklin ’s One Warrior Series,” will see the veteran fighter travel to gyms in places such as Bangkok, Manila, Seoul, Tokyo and Beijing, where athletes will audition for the show by passing “a series of tests,” according to a release. The athletes who are selected will be invited to compete in a “trial exhibition bout” with the eventual possibility of earning a six-figure One Championship contract.

Tim Means: By The Numbers

Tim Means knows how to conduct crowd-pleasing business in the cage. The longtime Fit NHB representative will square off with former Titan Fighting Championship titleholder Belal Muhammad in a three-round welterweight showcase at UFC Fight Night 121 this Saturday at the Qudos Bank Arena in Sydney, as the Ultimate Fighting Championship visits Australia for the first time in 2017. Means last competed at UFC Fight Night 112 on June 25, when he was awarded a unanimous decision over Tristar Gym export Alex Garcia . Known for his liberal use of close-quarters elbow strikes and a propensity for firefights, he has compiled a 9-5 record with one no-contest across two stints in the UFC. As Means makes his final preparations before facing Muhammad in a featured matchup at 170 pounds, here are some of the numbers that have come to define him: 1: Draw on his resume. Means fought Dom O’Grady to a stalemate at a King of the Cage event on July 30, 2010 in Edmonton, Alberta. 2: Post-fight performance bonuses won in his 15 UFC appearances.

Opening odds: Champ Cris Cyborg is a hefty favorite over Holly Holm at UFC 219

It wouldn’t be the first time Holm won a bout due to her striking skills. The former pro boxing champion faced then-bantamweight champion Rousey, who was a massive -1650 favorite in their 2015 bout at UFC 193. It’s the only time Holm was the underdog in a pro MMA bout – and she pulled off one of the sport’s biggest upset s with the head-kick knockout.
