UFC Fight Night 124 weigh-in results and live video stream (10 a.m. ET)

ST. LOUIS – MMAjunkie is on scene and reporting live from today’s early and official UFC Fight Night 124 fighter weigh-ins, which kick off at 10 a.m. ET (7 a.m. PT).

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 .

Ex-Bellator Commentator Jimmy Smith Signs Deal to Join UFC Broadcast Team

It didn’t take long for veteran mixed martial arts commentator Jimmy Smith to find a new home. The Ultimate Fighting Championship announced Friday that Smith will join its broadcast team to help call Fox Sports and pay-per-view events as well as pre-fight programming. Smith’s debut event with the promotion was not announced. “I am honored to join the world’s premier combat sports brand in 2018,” Smith said in a release. “It is a privilege to call fights for a living and I can’t wait to join the tremendous UFC broadcast team to call the best fights in the world. To the UFC fans, I am thrilled to join you for this wild ride. See you all very soon.”  A long-time analyst for Bellator MMA, Smith and the California-based organization parted ways at the end of 2017. In a brief statement, the promotion said the decision was mutual. Smith, meanwhile, revealed on Joe Rogan’s "JRE MMA Show” podcast that he was unable to come to terms with Bellator on a deal that satisfied him. “They said, ‘We want to change the deal around.

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.

Invicta FC 27 ‘Kianzad vs. Kaufman’ Play-by-Play, Results & Round-by-Round Scoring

Konklak Suphisara vs. Mellissa Wang Round 1 Wang pushes forward with punches and looks for a takedown near the fence right off the bat. Suphisara lands a couple knees to the body before the separate. Wang goes right back to the forward pressure, following a front kick with a double jab before closing the distance. Suphisara is able to separate from her foe again and they’re back in the center of the cage. “Loma Lookboonme” lands a hard kick to the body as Wang shoots for a takedown. The muay Thai stylist stands and they clinch against the fence. Suphisara nonchalantly trips her foe to the canvas and walks away. A knee to the face lands for Suphisara in close range, and that allows “Loma Lookboonmee” to quickly transition to her opponent’s back. She hunts for the rear-naked choke, and then adjusts her grip, going palm to palm. Eventually Suphisara gives up on the choke and takes full mount, landing some elbows from above. Suphisara goes back to the choke, but Wang is eventually able to turn away and take top position. Wang looks to create space and land punches from inside her opponent’s full guard.

Joe Rogan predicts Conor McGregor will be stripped of UFC lightweight title

“I think they’re going to strip him, because Conor’s got $100 million in the bank, and he’s having fun and talking (expletive), and he’s going to keep training,” Rogan said. “And he’s going to make a big fight in the future, but I think Khabib and Tony is the big fight and (expletive), they might even do that one in Russia. They’re talking about doing a big fight in Russia.”

Patricky Freire-Derek Campos Rematch Set for Bellator 194 Co-Main Event

Bellator MMA will once again try to book a rematch between Patricky Freire and Derek Campos . The California-based promotion announced on Friday that Freire vs. Campos 2 will serve as the co-headliner for Bellator 194 on Feb. 16. Freire and Campos were supposed to square off on two different occasions in 2016, but both times the bout was canceled due to injuries. The fight was announced again for Bellator 181 this past July, but that pairing was scratched when “Pitbull” was moved to Bellator 183 to face Benson Henderson . Bellator 194 takes place at the Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Conn., and is headlined by a heavyweight grand prix quarterfinal clash between Matt Mitrione and Roy Nelson . The card airs on the Paramount Network at 9 p.m. ET/8 p.m. CT. Freire defeated Campos via technical knockout 52 seconds into round two of their first meeting at Bellator 117 in April 2014. The 31-year-old Brazilian has won four of his last five promotional appearances, including a second-round KO of Josh Thomson and a split verdict against Henderson last year.

Scott Coker Nixes Possibility of Rory MacDonald as Alternate in Bellator Heavyweight Grand Prix

Sonnen vs. ‘Rampage’ Promoted to Bellator 192 Headliner over Lima vs. MacDonald Title Fight

Bellator MMA has opted for name recognition when choosing an official headliner for its debut on the Paramount Network. After months of promoting the welterweight championship fight between Douglas Lima and Rory MacDonald as the Bellator 192 main event, Scott Coker confirmed to The Sporting News on Friday that Chael Sonnen vs. Quinton Jackson will be the evening’s featured bout. While Bellator is calling it a double main event, Sonnen vs. “Rampage” will be the last televised bout of the night. Sonnen and Jackson will kick off the promotion’s quarterfinal round of the heavyweight grand prix, which will crown a new champion by the end of the year. Lima will defend his 170-pound belt against MacDonald in a five-round tilt immediately prior. Jackson, a former UFC heavyweight champion and Pride Fighting Championships star, and Sonnen, a title challenger in the UFC at middleweight and light heavyweight, have both headlined successful pay-per-view offerings in the Las Vegas-based promotion and are generally considered to be bigger stars than either Lima or MacDonald.

What kind of person wants to watch a woman fight a man?

The impetus for that bout was more organic than what Gender Wars MMA has planned, but both seem to play to a similar idea: A loudmouth man proudly declares that women are physically inferior to men, and even one trained in martial arts can’t overcome the simple facts of biology. Then you find a woman who, for money or honor (or both), is willing to try to prove him wrong, and you’re off and running.

Uriah Hall can't weigh in, UFC Fight Night 124 co-main event with Vitor Belfort scrapped

In Belfort’s most recent fight in June, he scored a unanimous-decision win over Nate Marquardt at UFC 212. It was his first victory since November 2015, when he knocked out Dan Henderson at UFC Fight Night 77. Prior to the win over Marquardt, the 40-year-old Brazilian legend had lost four of five fights by TKO to Chris Weidman in a title fight at UFC 187, Ronaldo Souza, Gegard Mousasi and Kelvin Gastelum. But the Gastelum win was flipped to a no-contest after Gastelum tested positive for marijuana.

There’s also talk of UFC 223 coming to Barclay’s Center in Brooklyn, N.Y., on April 7. Although nothing is official, a person with knowledge of the situation has told MMAjunkie that is the plan. This matters to Nurmagomedov’s more immediate future, because Brooklyn’s large Russian population and the promotion’s desire to bring a major headliner to the Big Apple make UFC 223 perfect for his next booking.

With move to flyweight, Paige VanZant confident she can avoid embarrassments in fights

“I’ve kind of put that pressure on myself in every single fight,” VanZant said. “I feel like every fight I have, there’s a different element of pressure going into it. Like, ‘I better win this fight because of my opponent.’ Or, ‘I better win this fight because I’m the main event.’ There’s always a lot of outside factors, but I think the biggest thing is I like to win and I want to go out there and put my best self forward and not have anymore embarrassments in fights.”
