Ronda Rousey Dress Malfunction Caught On Film, Goes Viral Fast - MMA Imports

Cris ‘Cyborg’ Responds to Insensitive Social Media Post by Jackson-Wink Photographer

As the most hated photographer in the world today, I feel its necessary to comment on the recent fall out I’m causing for both Hollys and Cyborgs camps, and their respectful friends, fans, and families. At the conclusion of UFC 219, I took the final bus out of the arena back to the hotel and ended up on the same bus as Chris Cyborg and her team. As I sat in the back I began to hear them cheer and revel in their victory and discuss small parts of the event. A couple things really bothered me. I heard them laughing and commenting on a picture that renowned photographer Esther Lin took of Cyborgs toes literally in Hollys eye from a kick. Cyborg then went on to discuss how during clinches “the bitch” just “stayed and hugged her but she did nothing”. When I got back to the hotel I posted a picture with an inappropriate caption that everyone is now talking about. I was obviously acting out of anger and frustration. My personal emotions got in the way of my professional status which I failed to adhere to. But there is more to it, Cyborg leading up to the fight through her own Social Media accounts accused Holly and our camp of being the most drug failed camp ever.

8’s 2017 Year-End Awards: The Complete List

Another eventful 12 months have come and gone in mixed martial arts. Bellator MMA , the Professional Fighters League , Invicta Fighting Championships , Rizin Fighting Federation and One Championship all made significant moves, but the Ultimate Fighting Championship once again cast an immense shadow across the globe; and the sport continued to evolve, for better and for worse. A year that started with a beloved legend being drawn and quartered at UFC Fight Night 103 on Jan. 15 took a number of unexpected twists and turns, most notably lightweight champion Conor McGregor ’s detour into professional boxing for a lucrative showdown with Floyd Mayweather Jr. Four UFC champions lost their grip on promotional gold, as Michael Bisping , Jose Aldo , Cody Garbrandt and Joanna Jedrzejczyk were removed from power by force; Jon Jones returned to the top of the light heavyweight division, only to be undone soon after by a positive test for performance-enhancing drugs. Meanwhile, Cristiane Justino and Nicco Montano captured vacant titles in the women’s featherweight and women’s flyweight divisions.

Matches to Make After UFC 219

Holly Holm wandered onto the tracks when the train ... well, you know the rest. “The Preacher’s Daughter” was unsuccessful in her bid to dethrone undisputed Ultimate Fighting Championship women’s featherweight titleholder Cris Cyborg , as she lost a unanimous decision to the Brazilian juggernaut in the UFC 219 main event on Saturday at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. Scores were 49-46, 48-47 and 48-47 for Justino, though most observers felt the judges went easy on the affable Holm. Justino outlanded the Albuquerque, New Mexico, native by substantial FightMetric margins across the five-round affair: 118-44 in significant strikes and 131-48 in total strikes. Worse for Holm, the champion’s punches, knees and kicks had considerably more heat on them and took a far heavier toll. By the time their 25 minutes were up, the challenger was barely recognizable, the left side of her face battered by a series of clubbing “Cyborg” right hands. To Holm’s credit, she managed to stay alert and never stopped probing for avenues to what was always an unlikely victory.

MMAjunkie's '2017 Robbery of the Year': The MMA gods giveth, and they taketh away

So the MMA gods maybe thought Silva deserved to get back in the win column, officially, for the first time in four and a half years – an unthinkable stretch for a man once considered the best in history. At UFC 208, which took place at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y., this past February, those gods were played by Derek Cleary, Eric Colon and Doug Crosby.

Dana's a hypocrite. Criticises GSP for vacating the MW belt in 31 days yet defends Conor for not defending the LW belt in over 365 days. Strip Conor and make Tony vs. Khabib for the lineal LW belt in April/May. GSP playing Dana has to be my favourite MMA storyline of 2017.

McGregor’s current position is simple: Want a shot at the champ, come beg me for it. Nurmagomedov’s reply is perfect in angle – essentially charging McGregor with being unwilling to defend his title against a superior wrestler who has mowed down all 25 opponents he’s faced to date.

Holly Holm left UFC 219 wearing the damage of 'Fight of the Night' vs. Cris Cyborg

Holm’s manager, Lenny Fresquez, told ESPN’s Brett Okamoto that his client was checked out at the hospital post-fight and did not sustain any serious injuries. The superficial damage is almost certainly unpleasant, but that didn’t stop the former UFC women’s bantamweight champ from smiling for a photo with ring announcer Bruce Buffer (via Instagram ):

UFC 219 Post-Mortem: A Sight to Behold

When it was confirmed by the Ultimate Fighting Championship that Khabib Nurmagomedov would return to the Octagon against Edson Barboza , fans waited with baited breath. They hoped “The Eagle” could manage to make it to fight night after a number of his scheduled bouts -- most notably those against Tony Ferguson -- fizzled because of various injuries. Nurmagomedov alleviated their fears in the UFC 219 co-main event on Saturday in Las Vegas, and it was a sight to see. The fight between the two top-shelf lightweights played out over three rounds, as Nurmagomedov gave the Brazilian no space with which to employ his excellent muay Thai skills. It was in danger of being stopped on a number of occasions, as the Dagestani grappler landed takedowns in all three rounds and put a hellacious beating on Barboza until their 15 minutes had expired. Afterward, the scorecards told the story of one of the most one-sided beatdowns in UFC history: 30-25, 30-25 and 30-24. Nurmagomedov was then bombarded with post-fight questions regarding Ferguson, now in possession of the interim lightweight title, and reigning UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor .

PHOTO | Conor McGregor taunts Floyd Mayweather with new social media post |

UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor decided to break in the New Year by taking a jab at his former boxing opponent Floyd Mayweather.

Report: Unbeaten prospect Mackenzie Dern meets Ashley Yoder at UFC 222

Yoder started her career 5-1, including a win for Invicta FC, and got a shot in the UFC through Season 23 of “The Ultimate Fighter.” She made her official promotional debut at UFC Fight Night 102 in December 2016, but dropped a decision to Justine Kish. And this past July, in her follow-up, she dropped a decision to former Invicta FC champion Angela Hill.

It's a new year, and the next phase of the Conor McGregor saga is just beginning

In a series of tweets on New Year’s Day , the UFC lightweight champion: 1) Disparaged Khabib Nurmagomedov ’s performance in a three-round evisceration of Edson Barboza at UFC 219, 2) insisted that he’s not coming back to the UFC until he’s paid “(his worth)”, 3) as in, seriously, you’re going to have beg him, 4) because his whiskey brand launches soon and he expects to make “Diddy bread” as a result, 5) and that’s on top of the Diddy bread he already has, 6) so go on and open up that wallet, for real this time.

Every New Year we are flooded with thoughts of making changes and setting goals for ourselves; and if we aren’t, our Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram accounts are full of other people’s! The problem is most of these thoughts only last for a few days or weeks, and then fade away, leaving you with regret and dissatisfaction. This is because most New Year’s Resolutions are unrealistic, or they are much too broad and general.
