5 Must-See Fights at Bellator 192

Rory MacDonald had this in mind when he left the Ultimate Fighting Championship to sign a free-agent deal with Bellator MMA in 2016. The Tristar Gym lynchpin will challenge Douglas Lima for the promotion’s undisputed welterweight title in the Bellator 192 co-main event on Saturday at The Forum in Inglewood, California. Their five-round battle plays second fiddle to the Quinton Jackson - Chael Sonnen heavyweight grand prix quarterfinal on Paramount (9 p.m. ET/8 p.m. CT). MacDonald made his organizational debut at Bellator 179 on May 19, when he snapped a two-fight losing streak with a rear-naked choke submission on Paul Daley . The 28-year-old former King of the Cage champion compiled a 9-4 record in 13 appearances under the UFC flag, losing only to Robbie Lawler (twice), Stephen Thompson and Carlos Condit . MacDonald has authored 14 finishes among his 19 career victories, seven of them inside one round. His list of victims includes Tarec Saffiedine , Mike Pyle , Kajan Johnson and Jordan Mein . Training out of an American Top Team affiliate in Atlanta, Lima established himself as one of the sport’s premier welterweights with a run of sustained success in Bellator.

Carbajal: Conor McGregor Approaching a Defend-or-Vacate Crossroads

Editor’s note: The views and opinions expressed below are those of the author and do not necessarily reflect the views of Sherdog.com, its affiliates and sponsors or its parent company, Evolve Media. * * * After the first Ultimate Fighting Championship event of the year on Sunday in St. Louis, UFC President Dana White had to address the issue of lightweight champion Conor McGregor and the division over which he reigns. White said McGregor would be stripped of his title if he does not defend it soon . Tony Ferguson currently holds the interim lightweight championship, with the undefeated Khabib Nurmagomedov established as the clear No. 1 contender. Ferguson has been on a defend-or-vacate campaign against McGregor since he submitted Kevin Lee with a triangle choke to win the interim championship at UFC 216 in October. Meanwhile, fans await the next move from “The Notorious” one. FloCombat reported that Ferguson and Nurmagomedov are rumored to headline the UFC’s return to Brooklyn, New York, in April . While that bout has not yet been confirmed, it would be one step toward moving on and away from McGregor, who has not fought in more than a year.

UFC Vet Scott Askham Makes KSW Debut Against Michal Materla at KSW 42 in Lodz

Ultimate Fighting Championship veteran Scott Askham didn’t get short shrift in his desire to get a major opponent with new promoter Konfrantacja Sztuk Walki</>. On Tuesday, the Poland-based company announced that Askham would officially make his promotional debut at KSW 42 , taking on former KSW kingpin Materla. KSW 42 , set for March 3 at Atlas Arena in Lodz, Poland, is due to be headlined by a 198-pound super fight between the organization’s middleweight and light heavyweight champions, Mamed Khalidov and Tomasz Narkun . Materla held the KSW middleweight belt for three years before giving up the title to  Mamed Khalidov  via first-round knockout loss at KSW 33 in November 2015. “Magic” is 25-5 over the course of his professional career that includes 19 bouts in the Polish promotion. The 32-year-old Materla was rumoured to be on the verge of signing a deal with the UFC to headline UFC Fight Night 118 in Gdansk, Poland, against Thiago Santos. Instead, Material re-signed with KSW and pulled out of negotiations with the UFC.

Stinton: What It Takes to Build a Star

Editor’s note: The views and opinions expressed below are those of the author and do not necessarily reflect the views of Sherdog.com, its affiliates and sponsors or its parent company, Evolve Media. * * * It’s safe to say that the Doo Ho Choi hype train has been derailed, at least for now. After a promising 3-0 start in the Ultimate Fighting Championship , “The Korean Superboy” has dropped two consecutive fights, and with his compulsory military service hanging on the horizon, the future is looking more uncertain than ever. Luckily, even with the impending two-year absence, the 26 year-old still has a lot of future ahead of him. If there’s any silver lining to his losses to Cub Swanson and Jeremy Stephens , it’s that both of them are much more experienced. That experience matters. Choi was barely a teenager when Swanson made his 2004 professional debut, and Stephens debuted only six months after that. Stephens was 17-5 with seven UFC fights under his belt by the time Choi got paid to fight. That’s a huge head start. There is no substitute for the confidence and grit earned through time in the cage.

Breaking: Jones Just Passed A Polygraph Test To Prove His Innocence In USADA Steroid Case - MMA Imports

On Aug. 22, UFC announced that Jones, 30, had failed a drug test on July 28, a day before his third-round TKO win over Cormier. Since then, both Jones and his management team have repeatedly denied the fact that Jones knowingly took any banned substance prior to the fight and vowed to fight the failed test. As a result of the findings, the California State Athletic Commission overturned the fight to a no-contest and Cormier was awarded the light heavyweight title once again.

The Bottom Line: The Perpetual Underappreciation of the Proven Commodity

Editor’s note: The views and opinions expressed below are those of the author and do not necessarily reflect the views of Sherdog.com, its affiliates and sponsors or its parent company, Evolve Media. * * * We’re always looking for the Next Big Thing in mixed martial arts. Fans and media alike gravitate towards fighters who promise not to be just very good but spectacular, something truly special. This is something that happens in all sports to some degree, but MMA, driven by individual stars and featuring typically short career peaks, is particularly oriented towards the search for the transcendent new superstar. That quest has added urgency right now, as the Ultimate Fighting Championship struggles to create new stars to follow Conor McGregor and Ronda Rousey . Few fighters have fit the bill in providing excitement and hope better than Francis Ngannou . The massive heavyweight with the compelling personal story and the otherworldly knockout power has run through the competition over the course of his young UFC career: six fights, six wins, six finishes, no fights that went past the second round.

UFC's Cynthia Calvillo informed of potential USADA violation for marijuana

The UFC organization was notified today that the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) informed Cynthia Calvillo of a potential Anti-Doping Policy violation involving Carboxy-Tetrahydrocannabinol (“Carboxy-THC”) which is a metabolite of marijuana and/or hashish, above the decision limit of 180 ng/mL, stemming from an in-competition sample collected in conjunction with her recent bout in Las Vegas, Nevada on December 30, 2017, UFC 219: Cyborg vs. Holm.

Report: Yoel Romero Sues Tainted Supplement Maker Over 2016 Positive USADA Test

Yoel Romero has been granted another interim title shot, but the Ultimate Fighting Championship middleweight has another kind of fight in the works, too. According to a report by Forbes , Romero has filed a lawsuit against Goldstar Performance Products in New Jersey Superior Court. The suit regards Romero’s 2015 positive test for Ibutamoren. The U.S. Anti-Doping Agency describes Ibutamoren as “a prohibited substance in the class of Peptide Hormones, Growth Factors, Related Substances and Mimetics under the UFC Anti-Doping Policy.” The suit alleges that Goldstar “failed to maintain the production facility” and “knew” that it was producing supplements contaminated with unlisted substances. Romero’s suit also contends that as a result of his positive test, the Olympic Greco-Roman wrestling silver medalist lost a chance to fight for the UFC middleweight title. Romero, 40, provided an out-of-competition sample to USADA on Dec. 16, 2015, just four days after defeating “Jacare” Ronaldo Souza at UFC 194. On Jan. 13, 2016, Romero was informed by USADA of a potential doping violation and faced a two-year suspension, which he appealed on the grounds that he had unknowingly taken a contaminated supplement.

Stipe Miocic vs. Francis Ngannou: Nice guy meets 'Predator' in hyped UFC 220 heavyweight title fight

This is the heavyweight archetype that fight fans are drawn to. At 6-foot-4 and typically hovering near the heavyweight limit of 265 pounds, Ngannou is the mammoth striker with the look and swagger of a man who might justify the hyperbolic hype of the fight game. That might explain why so much attention is on him rather than on the champion who stands on the precipice of UFC heavyweight history.
