Sherdog’s Official Mixed Martial Arts Rankings - Ending Bantamweight’s Wild Year

Once 2016 got rocking and rolling last January, we were treated to a nearly immediate restructuring of the bantamweight division. It is only fitting that the year ended in a similar fashion. Twelve months ago, Dominick Cruz recaptured the Ultimate Fighting Championship 135-pound title, earning a split decision over T.J. Dillashaw in one of the year’s finest fights. However, after not losing an MMA fight for nearly 10 years, Cruz’s reign would not last until 2017, as a former Dillashaw stablemate at Team Alpha Male, Cody Garbrandt , turned in a stupendous performance at UFC 207 to take the UFC title and bantamweight supremacy. For 25 minutes, the heavy-hitting Garbrandt danced, mocked and pelted Cruz on the feet in a way no one ever has. His outstanding championship title capture was not only a technical sight to behold, but the win was Garbrandt’s fourth this year. In a year full of outstanding campaigns, few had a 2016 as good as Garbrandt, who was clearly the year’s breakout fighter. Of course, speaking of 135 pounds, Garbrandt-Cruz was not even the UFC 207 main event.

MMA’s Greats of the States | Ohio: Mark Coleman

Mixed martial artists come from every corner of the globe, bearing a variety of styles. Sometimes, fighters are products of their environment, favoring disciplines prevalent in the country or state from which they hail. Various regions of the United States are considered factories for great fighters, though that certainly is not the case with each state. In this weekly Sherdog.com series, the spotlight will shine on the best mixed martial artist of all-time from each of the 50 states. Fighters do not necessarily need to be born in a given state to represent it; they simply need to be associated with it. *** A state known for its passion for football and political influence, Ohio has been a mixed martial arts hotbed for years. Fighters like reigning Ultimate Fighting Championship heavyweight titleholder Stipe Miocic and newly minted UFC bantamweight champion Cody Garbrandt are carrying on the tradition, but it was Mark Coleman who blazed the trail for fellow Buckeyes. Coleman was a decorated amateur wrestler, as he won a national title at Ohio State University in 1988, captured three consecutive gold medals at the Pan American Games (1990-92) and represented the United States at the 1992 Summer Olympics in Barcelona, Spain.

Opinion: The Two Types of Defeat

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. * * * The new school year in Korea begins with the new calendar year. As such, I got to know my new batch of students this week. Introductory classes are always boring and a little dry, since they mostly exist to learn names, highlight important dates and go over expectations. However, the first day is when I explain the theme of my class, which is really what I try to make the theme of my life in general: to embrace failure. It’s a typical teacher truism, and I’m aware of how cheesy it can sound, but I genuinely believe it. We are, after all, human, and failure is inevitable. What matters is not avoiding failure but developing the ability to learn from it. UFC 207 on Friday provided two case studies in how to fail and how now to fail. Especially for the “New Year-New Me” resolution crowd, the ways in which former champions Dominick Cruz and Ronda Rousey dealt with their defeats are instructive.

Sherdog.com’s 2016 Fighter of the Year

Conor McGregor outdid himself -- and all of his predecessors -- over the past 12 months, making history as the first man or woman to hold Ultimate Fighting Championship titles in two weight classes simultaneously. While his sailing was not entirely smooth, the unprecedented nature of his achievement left him in a class all by himself and made him the Sherdog.com “Fighter of the Year” for the second straight year. McGregor overcame an inauspicious start. Then the featherweight champion, the ambitious SBG Ireland export accepted a challenge from Nate Diaz at 170 pounds in the UFC 196 main event on March 5 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. McGregor entered the cage on the strength of a 15-fight winning streak but tapped to a rear-naked choke from the Brazilian jiu-jitsu black belt 4:12 into Round 2. A replacement for injured UFC lightweight champion Rafael dos Anjos , Diaz absorbed a copious amount of punishment from the Irishman. He was on the receiving end of probing left hands and jarring uppercuts but never checked out.

The Walkmen: UFC 207 ‘Nunes vs. Rousey’

UFC 207 marked the return of Ronda Rousey. Aside from her electrifying entrance, it did not go well for the former Ultimate Fighting Championship women’s bantamweight titleholder. Rousey succumbed to the savagery of reigning champion Amanda Nunes in the main event on Friday at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, the Brazilian bringing it to a close with punches 48 seconds into Round 1. Rihanna’s “American Oxygen” brought Nunes to the cage, while Rousey went with her customary track -- Joan Jett and The Blackhearts’ “Bad Reputation” -- ahead of her first appearance in more than a year. Other standout musical choices at UFC 207 included Queen’s “We Will Rock You” (Cody Garbrandt), Motley Crue’s “Shout at the Devil” (Ray Borg), Harry Belafonte’s “Banana Boat” (Alex Garcia), Chubby Checker’s “Let’s Twist Again” (Antonio Carlos Jr.), Red Hot Chili Peppers’ “Can’t Stop” (T.J. Dillashaw) and Korn’s “Falling Away from Me” (Marvin Vettori).

Report: UFC Negotiating a Summer Debut in Edmonton; Title Fight, PPV Card Both Possibilities

The city of Calgary will have to keep waiting for the Ultimate Fighting Championship to atone for the ill-fated UFC 149 card back in July 2012. Nonetheless, the UFC looks to be headed back to Alberta for the promotion’s first card in Edmonton. According to a report by Terry Jones of the Edmonton Sun, the UFC will make its debut in the “Oil Capital of Canada” either in the summer or early autumn at the brand new Rogers Place, which opened in September. Speaking with Oilers Entertainment Group CEO and vice chairman Bob Nicholson, the article details the state and progress of negotiations between OEG and new UFC parent company WME-IMG. “The date hasn’t been confirmed. That’s one of the key things we’re working on,” said Nicholson. “We’re trying to make it a summer to an early fall date. That would be best for our scheduling. But, that’s really controlled by their championship bouts that we have to work through.” Following UFC 206 at the Air Canada Centre in Toronto on Dec. 10, the company will return to Canada on Feb. 19 for its second UFC Fight Night card at the Scotiabank Centre in Halifax, Nova Scotia, headlined by a rematch between former UFC heavyweight champion Junior dos Santos and Stefan Struve.

Movies, writing, producing, she’s really, really smart. I told her that at the beginning when she started this. I said, ‘You’re smart and beautiful, let the stupid people get punched in the face.’ Sorry stupid people. I think she’s an adult and she can make her own decisions. If you get in a fight with somebody or you’re angry with somebody, that’s not the time to make decisions. I think decisions are best made when you’re not really emotional and obviously losing something is a real emotional thing.”

Khabib Says He’ll Pay Ferguson What The UFC Won’t To Make Fight Happen ASAP!

Top ranked UFC lightweight Khabib “The Eagle” Nurmagomedov wants his shot at the lightweight title and doesn’t care who he needs to fight to get there. Khabib is boasting an impressive 24-0 record and has torn through all of the competition since entering the promotion in 2012. However, fellow lightweight contender Tony Ferguson is currently riding a nine fight win streak and has been making his own case to fight for the title, so a fight with “The Eagle” would seem to make the most sense.

You don’t know the drive. Is the drive still there? You don’t know. But you can tell that it’s built and built and built and built and built.

Justin Gaethje Remains WSOF Lightweight Champion After New Year’s Eve Scare

NEW YORK -- Something had to give. Either a chunk of Luiz Firmino ’s face would fall off or Justin Gaethje ’s right arm would, from hitting the Brazilian constantly with right uppercuts. The World Series of Fighting 34 main event on Saturday at Madison Square Garden turned out to be a thriller, featuring an incredible, back-and-forth battle between Gaethje, the defending WSOF lightweight champion, and a valiant challenger who took the fight on three weeks’ notice. In the end, with both fighters busted up and swollen, it was Gaethje that drove his record to 17-0 after referee Dan Miragliotta wisely waved off the fight after three rounds. Firmino, who fell to 19-8, could barely see. His right eye was swollen shut, possibly from a broken orbital bone, and his left eye was a mere slit. According to the judges, it was Firmino that was ahead after three rounds, winning the first and second before Gaethje’s sledgehammer right uppercuts began cracking his granite skull. What threw a bolt into the fight occurred in the waning seconds of the first round. Gaethje’s poor attempt at a somersault kick landed right on Firmino’s face.

Matches to Make After UFC 207

Amanda Nunes set out to show the world that Ronda Rousey had no business being in the cage with her. Mission accomplished. Nunes annihilated Rousey in less than a minute, as she retained the Ultimate Fighting Championship women’s bantamweight title with a scintillating first-round technical knockout in the UFC 207 main event on Friday at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. Rousey succumbed to punches 48 seconds into Round 1. She might as well have squared off with an 18-wheeler. Rousey advanced at the start and engaged the American Top Team standout in the center of the cage. She was met with a ferocious onslaught of accurate, power punches. Rousey tried and failed to clinch with the champion, only to be denied and fed further punishment. Nunes threw 47 strikes by FightMetric count and landed 27 of them before referee Herb Dean had seen enough. He gave Rousey every chance to recover, but the tide was not to be turned. In the aftermath of UFC 207 “Nunes vs. Rousey,” here are five matches that ought to be made: Amanda Nunes vs.

UFC 207: By the Numbers

If UFC 207 turns out to be Ronda Rousey ’s swan song, Amanda Nunes made sure it was a most unceremonious farewell. The reigning bantamweight queen routed the returning Rousey in Saturday’s main event at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, winning via technical knockout just 48 seconds after the bout began. Once Nunes connected with the first clean blow, Rousey looked just as shell-shocked as she did against Holly Holm at UFC 193, and the Olympic judoka never had a chance to recover. While it could be the end of an era for women’s MMA in the UFC, it appears that Nunes’ reign is just getting started. Here is a by-the-numbers look at UFC 207, with statistics courtesy of FightMetric.com. 48: Seconds needed by Nunes to dispatch Rousey, the third fastest KO/TKO in UFC women’s bantamweight history. The fastest two such victories belonged to Rousey: vs. Bethe Correia at UFC 190 (34 seconds) and vs. Alexis Davis at UFC 175 (16 seconds). 7: Victories for Nunes moving her out of a tie with Rousey and into sole possession of the most wins in UFC women’s bantamweight history.

After feeling it, after getting through it, after seeing the look in his eyes a couple of times when I punched him, when I kicked him, when I fought him, I’m not disappointed in myself at all.
