Rafael dos Anjos Announces Move To Welterweight Division

“I’ve already reached what I had to achieve at lightweight,” Dos Anjos told Combate. In addition, it has been very difficult to make the weight. Between 2014 and 2015 I fought five times and after that, in this race for the belt, my body changed a little. In the fight against Donald Cerrone, when defending my belt for the first time since, I felt my body change. Against Eddie Alvarez it was even worse, and in the fight with Tony Ferguson it was already much more difficult. So I decided to start this year of 2017 with new challenges and I think I will fight happier in that category because there is almost seven pounds less to lose.”

Cody Garbrandt: ’Sellout’ T.J. Dillashaw Was Never Truly UFC Bantamweight Champion

Cody Garbrandt ’s title-winning victory over Dominick Cruz at UFC 207 established the Team Alpha Male standout as one of the sport’s breakout stars of 2016. In addition to solving the Cruz riddle, “No Love” garnered first-round stoppages of Takeya Mizugaki , Thomas Almeida and Augusto Mendes last year. As he sits atop the bantamweight division, one potential opponent, ex-training partner T.J. Dillashaw , stands out above the rest for Garbrandt’s first title defense. Dillashaw captured the bantamweight title with an upset victory over Renan Barao at UFC 173 in May 2014. He defended the belt twice before relinquishing it to a returning Cruz at UFC Fight Night 81 approximately one year ago. Since then, Dillashaw has earned convincing decision triumphs over John Lineker and Raphael Assuncao to solidify his place as a top contender at 135 pounds. Dillashaw left Team Alpha Male for Elevation Fight Team in Colorado in 2015, a split that was both bitter and public. Harsh feelings still remain from that move, and Garbrandt claims that Dillashaw was never the true bantamweight champion because he never beat Cruz, who had to vacate the crown due to injury woes.

Opinion: Mainstream Media Pundits Don't Write Fighting History

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 a week removed from Ronda Rousey getting demolished by Amanda Nunes in 48 seconds and people are still talking about it. Lots and lots of people, including a lot of people that should be asking questions instead of offering statements. It's understandable that anyone who saw Nunes punch Rousey silly in barely three quarters of a minute would feel some type of way, nevermind that we're firmly in the era of hyperbolic hot taking across all walks of life, not just sports media or media on the whole. However, owing to Ronda Rousey's mainstream, crossover celebrity status and how truly one-sided and humiliating her knockout at the hands of Nunes was, it was inevitable that some folks who aren't exactly “MMA people” to put it mildly, would overplay their hand and say some abjectly stupid things. But, lovers of cagefighting, contemplation and sanity, it's no reason to get upset, because I come bearing good news: their opinions don't matter on any level.

Sherdog.com’s Pound-for-Pound Top 10

To say that 2016 was a chaotic year at MMA's upper echelon would be an understatement. In the Ultimate Fighting Championship , there were 10 title changes, and that doesn't even include the interim titles that former pound-for-pound king Jon Jones and new P4P entrant Max Holloway won. And speaking of Holloway's curious 145-pound interim title, Conor McGregor didn't even have to lose a bout in the Octagon in order to drop his featherweight title, which was stripped off of him by his promoter in late November. Excluding our No. 2 entrant Daniel Cormier , who didn't actually defend his UFC title on the year, there are only two UFC champions who started 2016 with their gold and kept it: women's strawweight champion Joanna Jedrzejczyk , the queen of MMA, and naturally, the new consensus No. 1 man in the sport, flyweight kingpin Demetrious Johnson . How has this list changed over the last 12 months? Well, since UFC 195 kicked off 2016 with a bang courtesy of the “Fight of the Year” between Robbie Lawler and Carlos Condit , half of our pound-for-pound list has been culled.

Magomed Sultanakhmedov Returns After 5-Year Absence at M-1 Challenge 75

M-1 Global announced on Thursday another bout for its upcoming M-1 Challenge 75 card. Welterweight prospect Sergey Romanov will take on veteran Magomed Sultanakhmedov in one of the featured bouts on the card, which goes down March 3 in Moscow. Once one of the most feared strikers in all of Europe, Sultanakhmedov has been out of commission for over five years. A series of injuries has kept “The White Wolf” out of the realm of combat since March 25, 2011, where he took out Tyson Jeffries in the second round thanks to a barrage of knees to the body. The Tula Oblast native has gone 9-2 in M-1, with eight of his wins coming via knockout. Sultanakhmedov has also competed under the K-1 Hero’s and Dream banners. Romanov, conversely, has been on a tear, having won his last eight, all within the past two years. The St. Petersburg resident is already 3-0 for M-1, with two wins coming via knockout. He last competed in October at M-1 Challenge 71 where he edged Carlos Alexandre Pereira via decision. A pair of undefeated welterweights will headline M-1 Challenge 75 on March 5 as Alexey Kunchenko will collide with Shavkat Rakhmonov .

Mark Hunt Says He’ll Sue Any Future UFC Opponent Who Gets Caught Doping

Mark Hunt didn’t get the anti-doping clause he requested to fight Alistair Overeem at UFC 209 , but life circumstances dictated that he accept the bout anyway. "I'm not young, I'm 42 years old. In six months I've already missed out on a couple of fights, I've already missed out on a couple million dollars," Hunt told New Zealand outlet Stuff . "At the end of the day I've stuck to my word. I've got no option, I'm in a contract that I can't get out of. All the doors I've gone through are closed and it's not like I can go and work somewhere else. Ages ago I was gladly ready to walk away and work somewhere else but they wouldn't allow it. "Think it from my position, I had no other option. I can't work anywhere else so what am I supposed to do - let my family starve?" When the promotion announced the matchup with Overeem, Hunt asked that a clause be inserted in the contract that would allow him to receive all of his opponent’s earnings if Overeem failed a drug test. Hunt has been vocal in his displeasure with the UFC ever since he fought Brock Lesnar at UFC 200.

I think Holly Holm kind of laid out a blueprint of how to beat Ronda. It works.”

Chael Sonnen Admits to Being Jealous of Tito Ortiz’s Rise to Stardom in UFC

Chael Sonnen might have beaten Tito Ortiz in a college wrestling match nearly 20 years ago, but he doesn’t expect that long ago result to have any bearing on their fight at Bellator 170 . “Tito’s a great fighter. He fights different than he wrestles. He was a hell of a wrestler. I caught him in one position. I’m not gonna hang my hat on that, and I don’t believe that position’s gonna happen again,” Sonnen said. “I’m a huge fan. I’m pumped to be in there with a Hall of Famer like Tito. I’m gonna do everything I can to beat him , but I don’t dismiss how good this guy is.” Sonnen, who wrestled for the University of Oregon, moved from 177 pounds to 190 pounds to face Ortiz, who competed for Cal State Bakersfield. “The Gangster from West Linn” pinned Ortiz in 44 seconds in their Jan. 23, 1998 match, a date which also happened to be Ortiz’s birthday. At that point, Ortiz had already begun his Ultimate Fighting Championship career. Sonnen, meanwhile, was of aware of his opponent’s exploits and continued to follow Ortiz as he rose to prominence in the Octagon.

EuroFC Signs Petr Knize for Promotion’s Second Event on Feb. 11

EuroFC, the newest MMA promotion in Europe, is quickly gaining some traction in the scene with a solid maiden show late last year and what could be an even better second event next month. To bolster its roster even more, EuroFC officially sign Czech powerhouse Petr Knize . Promotion officials announced the signing Friday afternoon. While Knize doesn’t have an opponent for Euro FC 2, which takes place Feb. 11 at the O2 Arena in Prague, Czech Republic, it was announced that he will be on the card. “Monster” is a multiple-time champion in judo and has looked terrific since transitioning over to MMA. “Having a Czech legend like Petr Knize is a big deal. He is the Czech Randy Couture ,” said EuroFC matchmaker Tim Leidecker. “I have long been a fan of his and he adds a certain depth to a card that very few fighters can bring. I am currently in the process of finalizing his opponent but I promise EuroFC fans that they will not want to miss this one for sure. Two MMA legends will compete against one another at EuroFC 02 on Feb. 11!” A battle between UFC veteran Enrique Martin and Aleksi Mantykivi was previously announced for the event.

But I’ve been around long enough to know that it’s all bullsh*t, so don’t believe everything that all your little team, all your little ‘yes men.’ Everything they’re telling you, it ain’t true, because I’ll do to you what f***ing Nate Marquardt did to you and beat the f**k out of you, buddy.”

Amanda Nunes: ‘I Don’t Know How Ronda Rousey Went Too Far in This Division’

Amanda Nunes emphatically ended any hype that might have remained for Ronda Rousey last week, but the UFC women’s bantamweight champion doesn’t understand how her opponent reached such lofty heights in the first place. “I don’t know how Ronda Rousey went too far in this division,” Nunes recently told TMZ Sports . “I don’t understand how those girls lost to Ronda Rousey. I know since my first fight in the UFC I can beat Ronda Rousey. Of course I had to take my time and put everything together. That day was the day to prove to everybody and I did it.” Nunes demolished Rousey at UFC 207 last week, winning via technical knockout 48 seconds into the opening frame. The Olympic judoka looked lost as the Brazilian known as “Lioness” blasted her with hard left and right hands, and Rousey was unable to drag the fight into her comfort zone — the clinch — before the contest was halted. It was Rousey’s first appearance since a headkick knockout defeat to Holly Holm at UFC 193 in November 2015. After beginning her MMA career with 12 consecutive victories, back-to-back lopsided defeats have many questioning Rousey’s legacy in the sport.

Sherdog.com’s 2016 Breakthrough Fighter of the Year

Cody Garbrandt entered 2016 as a promising but unproven prospect and left it as the Ultimate Fighting Championship bantamweight titleholder. It was a meteoric rise, to say the least. The ink dried on Garbrandt’s remarkable campaign at UFC 207 on Dec. 30, as he struck gold at 135 pounds with a five-round unanimous decision over Dominick Cruz at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. He swept the scorecards with 48-46, 48-47 and 48-46 marks from the judges, improved to 11-0 and cemented himself as the Sherdog “Breakthrough Fighter of the Year.” Cruz could not cope with the challenger’s speed, power and precision. Garbrandt attacked the legs early on and then went headhunting. He opened a horrendous gash on Cruz’s left eyebrow in the third round and floored him twice in the fourth, first with a clean right hook and later with a left. Needing a finish, Cruz spent the final five minutes trying to chase down the Uhrichsville, Ohio, native. His pursuit appeared to win him the round but failed to net the desired result. “I always was comfortable in there.
