The Hit List: Undefeated Fighters in the UFC

Paulo Henrique Costa has been nothing short of sensational in his two Ultimate Fighting Championship appearances, and his climb on the middleweight ladder will in a matter of weeks bring him face to face with a former UFC titleholder. Part of a select group as one of 34 undefeated fighters on the UFC roster with at least one victory inside the Octagon, Costa will put his 10-0 record on the line against onetime welterweight champion Johny Hendricks in a featured UFC 217 pairing on Nov. 4 at Madison Square Garden in New York. “Borrachinha” has finished all 10 of his opponents, nine of them by knockout or technical knockout and four of them in less than 90 seconds. The 26-year-old Brazilian last competed at UFC 212 in June, when he wiped out Oluwale Bamgbose with second-round punches. Costa was a Jungle Fight champion before he made his move to the UFC.

Sherdog’s Top 10: Fastest Submissions in UFC History - Top 10

In terms of outward admission of inferiority, nothing in mixed martial arts compares to the submission. The tapout became synonymous with the sport right from the beginning. It all started with Royce Gracie , a lanky and unassuming jiu-jitsu practitioner who changed how the world thought about hand-to-hand combat at UFC 1. Gracie submitted all three of his opponents to win the open weight tournament on Nov. 12, 1993 inside McNichols Sports Arena in Denver. Art Jimmerson was first to experience the Brazilian’s unique set of skills, as he succumbed to a smother choke -- in actuality, he panicked when Gracie mounted him -- 2:18 into the first round of their quarterfinal pairing; next, Ken Shamrock fell prey to a rear-naked choke just 57 seconds into their semifinal showdown; and finally, Gerard Gordeau bowed out to a rear-naked choke in the tournament final, tapping the mat frantically 1:44 into the first round. Twenty-eight of the first 50 bouts contested under the Ultimate Fighting Championship banner resulted in submissions.

Mark Godbeer-Walt Harris Heavyweight Clash Rebooked for UFC 217 Undercard at MSG

The Ultimate Fighting Championship is going to give the Mark Godbeer - Walt Harris bout another try. The UFC has announced that the Godbeer-Harris heavyweight clash has been rebooked for the UFC 217 undercard. UFC 217 is scheduled for Nov. 4 at Madison Square Garden in New York City, headlined by the blockbuster middleweight title bout between Michael Bisping and returning welterweight legend Georges St. Pierre . The UFC 217 bill is in fact a UFC title tripleheader, also featuring the much-anticipated bantamweight title showdown between former Team Alpha Male compatriots Cody Garbrandt and T.J. Dillashaw , as well as MMA's pound-for-pound queen Joanna Jedrzejczyk defending her 115-pound title against Rose Namajunas . Godbeer and Harris were set to meet at UFC 216 in Las Vegas on Nov. 7 but the bout was scuttled on fight night when Derrick Lewis , who was scheduled to take on former UFC heavyweight champ Fabricio Werdum , pulled out due to two bulging discs in his back. Harris was then pulled from the Godbeer bout and faced Werdum, where he was armbarred in only 65 seconds.

Khabib Nurmagomedov Trying to Block Conor McGregor vs. Tony Ferguson |

“Because, my opinion, I think Tony Ferguson is the real champion. That’s why. I don’t think, if I fight versus Tony Ferguson, this is an interim belt. Officially, yes. But people want to see me versus Tony Ferguson. I think this is a much better fight, for everything. If I beat Tony Ferguson and take the interim championship belt… Conor’s the official champion, but he’s not the people’s champion.”

Holly Holm Responds to Cris Cyborg’s Comments Regarding Equal Drug Testing

Cristiane Justino vs. Holly Holm has not been officially booked, but that hasn’t prevented the fighters from going back and forth on social media regarding drug testing. On Monday, “Cyborg” took to Twitter to question whether Holm had been tested as much as she has been after receiving her “third visit from USADA in less than a month.” The reigning UFC featherweight queen claimed she wanted to make sure that Holm was tested equally because her gym, Jackson-Wink MMA, has a history of anti-doping violations. 3th visit from USADA in less than a month. Let's go see if my next opponent is doing exams in the same proportion I'm doing! website guys — #CyborgNation (@criscyborg) October 16, 2017 I want a guarantee @hollyholm is tested same number of times as me during this camp @UFC @usantidoping her gym has a history 2! I'm clean — #CyborgNation (@criscyborg) October 16, 2017 Those accusations prompted a response from Holm, who posted a video on her Instagram with the caption “I’ve actually just wasted a minute of my life on this video.

McGregor has mentioned St-Pierre as a possible opponent in the future and there’s no denying the power he maintains to control the destiny of his career. As for St-Pierre, he’s stated that he never asks for fights against opponents from lower weight divisions, but he’s teased a move down to lightweight before and a match-up with McGregor would be massive.


Why UFC 218's Justin Gaethje is publicly declaring short-notice fights are a no-no

“The effort I put in, I expect myself to have eight to 12 weeks of preparation, and that’s the way I do things,” said Gaethje (18-0 MMA, 1-0 UFC), who next faces Eddie Alvarez (28-5 MMA, 3-2 UFC) at UFC 218 on Dec. 2 at Little Caesars Arena in Detroit. “So I hope to never make the mistake – I just want to put it on the record for myself, to look back on – that I hope I never make the mistake of taking a last-second fight. Because inside, I would want to. But it shouldn’t happen.”

Ian McCall Joins Rizin GP, Faces Manel Kape; Ishiwatari-Petshi, Otsuka-Taha On for Dec. 29

Just a week after being granted release from his Ultimate Fighting Championship contract, “Uncle Creepy” Ian McCall is bound for the Rizin Fighting Federation , sliding into the quarterfinals of the promotion's ongoing bantamweight tournament. In a press conference Monday at the Westin Tokyo Hotel, Rizin officials held a lottery drawing to determine the quarterfinal pairings for its 2017 grand prix and introducing the 33-year-old McCall as the Block A “wild card” entrant. The quarterfinals of Rizin's bantamweight bracket will take place on Dec. 29 at the Saitama Super Arena in Saitama, Japan, with the semifinals and finale taking place two days later at the same venue on New Year's Eve. In the draw, McCall has been lined up with Portugal-based Angolan Manel Kape , who just a day earlier leveled Norifumi “Kid” Yamamoto 's nephew Erson Yamamoto with a head kick in 71 seconds. Other announced quarterfinal bouts will see bantamweight King of Pancrase Shintaro Ishiwatari take on France's Kevin Petshi , while Takafumi Otsuka faces undefeated Lebanese-German prospect Khalid Taha .

Paulie Malignaggi says Conor McGregor fight discussions are underway and PLEASE GOD NO

And for what? I mean, money, sure. But there’s plenty of that to be found elsewhere. The UFC is desperate for McGregor’s return. MMA fans are, too. A better-than-expected performance against Mayweather likely only increased his star power, which means he could defend his UFC title against a coat rack right now and still break MMA pay-per-view records.

Conor McGregor's next move will determine if his MMA return lasts

“If he chooses to face Nate Diaz next, that signals to me that he’s just about done,” Clifford told MMAjunkie Radio. “Maybe a Nate Diaz trilogy and maybe a Georges St-Pierre fight, and then he’s walking away a bajillionaire and doing whatever he’s going to do.

Dana White Reveals Conor McGregor's Next Fight Destination, but It Won't Be Against Nate Diaz |

“(Croke Parke) sounds great, but it’s probably going to be Tony Ferguson in Las Vegas,” White said. “But we do want to do Croke Park. The reason we haven’t done Croke Park with Conor is because we can’t get it done over there. They have a curfew on what time you got to be out of there and noise ordinances.”

Bellator contract allows Heather Hardy crossover in boxing, MMA

Hardy still holds a contract with boxing promoter Lou DiBella. She estimates she spends 12 hours a day in the squared circle, coaching fighters at gym and training clients at the famed Gleason’s Gym in her hometown of Brooklyn, N.Y. But at the moment, she sees more opportunity in MMA.

Brad Tavares is all praise for the UFC's 'game-changing' Performance Institute

The positive results, Tavares (16-4 MMA, 11-4 UFC) believes, serve to show that, at 29, he’s still evolving and growing into his own as a fighter. But one thing that certainly isn’t hurting the middleweight’s momentum is the addition of a “game-changing” tool: the UFC’s recently-installed Performance Institute.

To overcome horrific abuse, one young fighter found solace in the sting of battle

“My sister was treated better almost in spite of me,” Laren said. “She was treated almost like an example, like this is what you would be treated like if you didn’t remind me of your dad. I was made fun of and starved and made to think that I was somehow overweight or didn’t even deserve to eat food, and this was when I was 8, 9 years old. I was severely anorexic, like 25 pounds underweight as a kid. I remember being at the hospital, and they couldn’t figure out what was wrong with me, and then they realized I just wasn’t eating.”

Jim Wallhead Injured, UFC Seeks Sub for Warlley Alves at UFC Fight Night 118 This Saturday

The Ultimate Fighting Championship 's return to Poland continues to be ravaged by injuries, even during fight week. British MMA veteran “Judo” Jim Wallhead has been forced to pull out of his welterweight affair with Brazil's Warlley Alves at UFC Fight Night 118 due to an undisclosed injury. MMAJunkie was first to report the withdrawal on Sunday evening. The UFC is actively seeking a replacement to face Alves for the card, the promotion's second-ever card in Poland. UFC Fight Night 118 is set for this Saturday at the Ergo Arena in Gdansk, headlined by a 170-pound showdown between “Cowboy” Donald Cerrone and Darren Till . The company has particularly struggled to keep the UFC Fight Night 118 card intact. Contractual issues nixed slated bouts between middleweight Polish star Michal Materla and “Marreta” Thiago Santos , originally intended to be the bill's main event, and light heavyweight Jimi Manuwa and Poland's Przemyslaw Mysiala . Furthermore, in the last two weeks, three other bouts have been altered due to injuries, due to scrapes suffered by Teemu Packalan, Dmitry Smoliakov and Trevor Smith .

While McGregor may have failed to take over the boxing world with his big debut, “Notorious” still walked away with the payday of his career.

5 Things You Might Not Know About Dana White

Foresight has taken Dana White to unimaginable heights. The Manchester, Connecticut, native in 2000 convinced longtime friends Lorenzo and Frank Fertitta to take a $2 million gamble on the Ultimate Fighting Championship , a floundering mixed martial arts promotion that had been shunned by much of mainstream society and targeted by haughty politicians. In the 16-plus years since, the UFC has turned around its fortunes, become a global powerhouse and made White -- he was installed as president when the Fertittas purchased the company from Semaphore Entertainment Group -- one of the most influential people in professional sports. The Fertittas cashed in on their investment in July 2016, when they sold the UFC to William Morris Endeavor and International Management Group (WME-IMG) for a staggering $4 billion. Yes, billion with a “B.” Even as the Fertittas took their bow off the mixed martial arts stage, White remained as president and maintained his position as the face of the most prestigious mixed martial arts organization in the world. Here are five things you might not know about the UFC president: 1.

Will Brooks vs. Nik Lentz targeted for UFC Fight Night 121

The fight marks a rebooking for the veteran lightweights, who were scheduled to meet earlier this month at UFC 216 before Lentz (27-8-2 MMA, 11-5-1 UFC) wasn’t medically cleared to fight and was scratched from the card.

Dana White: Jon Jones Could Have Been UFC Heavyweight Champion |

Jones returned at UFC 214 in July and recaptured the light heavyweight crown by defeating Cormier by knockout. The result was later overturned and he was stripped of the title a third time after testing positive to the banned substance Turinabol, an anabolic steroid. Jones’ fall from grace is one of the biggest wastes of talent in sports history.
