Kamaru Usman: By The Numbers

Kamaru Usman has shed his prospect label and has begun building equity as a full-fledged contender in the Ultimate Fighting Championship welterweight division. The Hard Knocks 365 representative will put his 10-fight winning streak on the line against Norwegian brawler Emil Weber Meek in a featured UFC Fight Night 124 on Sunday at the Scottrade Center in St. Louis. Usman has compiled a perfect 6-0 record inside the Octagon and looked downright dominant in doing so. “The Ultimate Fighter” Season 21 winner last competed at UFC Fight Night 116 on Sept. 16, when he knocked out four-time Brazilian jiu-jitsu world champion Sergio Moraes less than three minutes into their encounter. Usman has delivered seven of his 11 professional victories by knockout, technical knockout or submission. In advance of Usman’s three-round clash with the 29-year-old Meek, here are some of the numbers that have come to define him: 1: Career defeat on his resume. Usman submitted to a rear-naked choke from Jose Caceres at a regional event on May 24, 2013 in Coral Gables, Florida.

Belfort, 40, last competed at UFC 212 on June 3, when he captured a three-round unanimous decision from Nate Marquardt and authored his first victory in nearly two years. A terrifying package of power, speed and technique who oftentimes makes the spectacular a common occurrence, he has 26 professional wins on his resume, 21 of them finishes. The latest installment in the Sherdog Top 10 series focuses on the best knockouts of Belfort’s career. *** OTHERS RECEIVING VOTES: Vitor Belfort vs. David Abbott (UFC 13), Vitor Belfort vs. Jon Hess (SuperBrawl 2), Vitor Belfort vs. Kazuo Takahashi (Pride “Critical Countdown Absolute”), Vitor Belfort vs. Randy Couture (UFC 46), Vitor Belfort vs.

Aljamain Sterling Critical of UFC’s Response Following Knockout Loss to Marlon Moraes

Haha yea I feel ya pain. Gonna right the ship in April. No symptoms, no headaches, etc. First day of training tn! — Aljamain Sterling (@FunkMaster_UFC) January 8, 2018 Aljamain Sterling , in response to an inquiry on social media on Monday , updated fans on his status following the first knockout loss of his career. The 28-year-old bantamweight was on a two-fight winning streak that included a decision victory over former champion Renan Barao before he faced off with Marlon Moraes at UFC Fight Night 123 on Dec. 9. Had he defeated the Brazilian, Sterling likely would have been in the No. 1 contender conversation, along with Jimmie Rivera , Cody Garbrandt and Dominick Cruz . Instead, he was on the receiving end of a brutal KO and the Internet memes that followed. Publicly, Sterling has refused to let the experience keep him down. He made light of the trending highlight reel on Twitter but addressed the seriousness of what occurred during an appearance on “The MMA Hour.” Sterling admits he made mistakes in the cage but expected more from the Ultimate Fighting Championship .

“I’m pretty much open to anything,” MacDonald said. “Whatever is the best thing at that particular time, I’m ready to jump on it. If there’s not a clear No. 1 contender at welterweight, if I beat Douglas, I’d be happy to fight for the middleweight title, or fight someone with a bigger name in a larger weight class.”

Preview: UFC Fight Night 124 ‘Stephens vs. Choi’ - Stephens vs. Choi

It took 425 events and nearly 25 years, but on Sunday, UFC Fight Night 124 finally brings the Octagon to St. Louis -- a city that for mixed martial arts purposes has been long associated with Strikeforce and Bellator MMA , essentially serving as Scott Coker’s San Jose of the Midwest. UFC Fight Night 124 at the Scottrade Center is topped by a tantalizing featherweight fight between electrifying South Korean prospect Doo Ho Choi and rugged veteran puncher Jeremy Stephens . The co-feature of the UFC’s first card in St. Louis could be the last of another kind however, as 40-year-old Vitor Belfort has stated that his middleweight clash with Uriah Hall may be his last in the company. “The Phenom,” who made his UFC debut 21 years ago next month, will be making his 26th appearance in the Octagon, one of only 10 athletes to reach that mark. If a 145-pound slobberknocker and potential Belfort farewell do not do it for you, well, Paige VanZant is back in an all-new weight class; and you better believe she will have rockets strapped to her dancing slippers, as the UFC tries to shoehorn her into a flyweight title shot against Nicco Montano .

While there were no deals done, there are ongoing talks to bring the biggest star in women’s MMA to the WWE.

Scott Coker: Bellator to ‘Keep That Door Open’ for Future Tournaments in Other Divisions

Before Scott Coker took over the helm, Bellator MMA was best known for holding “The Toughest Tournament in Sports.” When Coker replaced Bjorn Rebney atop the company, the tournament format largely became a thing of the past. But Bellator’s president knows a good opportunity when he sees one, which is why the California-based promotion will be holding a heavyweight bracket to crown a new champion over the course of 2018. The first round will begin at Bellator 192 on Jan. 20, when Chael Sonnen squares off against Quinton Jackson in the evening’s co-main event at the Forum in Inglewood, Calif. The main card, headlined by a welterweight tilt tilt between Douglas Lima and Rory MacDonald , will be televised on the Paramount Network beginning at 9 p.m. ET/8 p.m. CT. Coker is no stranger to heavyweight tournaments, however, as he presided over another star-studded big man bracket while serving as Strikeforce boss. He won’t rule out the possibility of holding more tournaments in Bellator down the road — just don’t expect them to become a regular occurrence.

Vitor Belfort Announces He Will Retire Following Fight Against Uriah Hall |

“This is it breaking news,” Belfort added. “I think life is about seasons. That’s what I like. Brazil, even in Florida, I wish we had seasons, summer, winter, spring. Life is about seasons and you’ve got to know the seasons. I think I did more than enough. Just to think back, sometimes I flash back and I say wow I’m still doing this. This is crazy. I’m very thankful but I think my body needs to rest. I have a business of my own, I developed a group class training system that we’re going to franchise. I just want to help the sport in a way.

Debets: Threading the Conor McGregor Needle

Editor’s note: The views and opinions expressed below are those of the author and do not necessarily reflect the views of, its affiliates and sponsors or its parent company, Evolve Media. * * * It has been 14 months since Conor McGregor last stepped foot in the Octagon and decimated Eddie Alvarez to win the undisputed Ultimate Fighting Championship lightweight title, and it feels like a lifetime ago. Back then, Barack Obama was still in the Oval Office, Harvey Weinstein was still a respected member of Hollywood’s elite and the idea that Georges St. Pierre ’s return fight would come against Michael Bisping for the middleweight championship was still safely languishing in when-pigs-fly territory. Times have changed. While McGregor’s notoriety has risen outside the UFC, courtesy of his boxing escapades and increasingly questionable conduct involving Bellator MMA officials and pop star Rita Ora , members of the UFC’s lightweight and featherweight divisions and a growing cadre of MMA fans have had no choice but to move on in his absence.

Walker: The Uphill and Unnecessary Battle for Zuffa Boxing

Editor’s note: The views and opinions expressed below are those of the author and do not necessarily reflect the views of, its affiliates and sponsors or its parent company, Evolve Media. * * * When the Floyd Mayweather - Conor McGregor World Tour rolled into Toronto for its second stop, Ultimate Fighting Championship President Dana White used the stage to show off the latest addition to his famed T-shirt collection. His red Zuffa Boxing shirt turned heads and began speculation. Much like the Saturday Night Live shirt White wore when rumors of an NBC deal were circulating, it meant something. Months later, the Boston native confirmed that Zuffa Boxing was indeed a real thing and his ambitions to sign heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua were made public. Fresh into 2018, we have very little official indication of what is going on with the new brand name. What will Zuffa Boxing look like? Is this even a worthy pursuit for the UFC brass? The decline of boxing has been well documented. What was once primetime viewing that consistently electrified the sports world had been reduced to delayed matchups and rare television appearances held up by high-priced pay-per-view events featuring the few stars that remained.

Jorge Masvidal: Ex-UFC champ Michael Bisping has a 'bounty on his head'

“I just don’t like him as a person,” Masvidal told MMAjunkie Radio. “I never really liked him before I met him, and after we had our encounters I liked him even less. With him, it’s just a personal thing. He disrespected my country when he ripped up the flag, so he’s got the bounty on his head. I would like to cash in before he retires. That’s why I’m willing to fight so early (in March).”

Amanda Ribas Claims Innocence Following USADA Suspension for Failed Drug Test

Amanda Ribas on Wednesday received a two-year suspension from USADA due to a positive test for the banned substance ostarine in an out-of-competition urine sample. In an official statement sent by the athlete to the press on Thursday, the Brazilian fighter vowed to be innocent and not to have consciously doped herself. However, Ribas reported that in tests on the supplements and medicines she consumed the banned substance found was clenbuterol, not ostarine. Ribas’ full statement is as follows: Recently the steroid ostarine was found in one of my examinations conducted by the USADA organization before my UFC debut. I am an expert on this type of product. I was an athlete of the Brazilian Judo team, a professional MMA teacher and I always went completely against this kind of thing. My manager, my trainer and I put together all the supplements and remedies that I used and sent them to USADA for testing. I have never used performance enhancing drugs, and I did not know what the substance was until then. After spending a lot of money on the tests, which are paid for by the athlete, we have learned that ostarine was not found.
