First, Mendes argues that he is in fact only three inches shorter than McGregor. Then, Mendes asks if the Irishman knows what wrestling is. “I can rest my balls on your forehead,” McGregor says, causing pandemonium among the partisans in the building. It’s the kind of diss you’d hear from a middle-schooler, but when delivered from the smoothie in the suit, it’s OMG THE MOST EPIC BURN EVER #SHOTSFIRED #GAMERGATE. McGregor goes on to brag that he’ll be bunking up with the Fertittas in their suite this weekend.

Cain Velasquez Injured; Fabricio Werdum to Face Mark Hunt for Interim Title at UFC 180 | MMAWeekly.com
“I’m so unbelievably disappointed that this happened,” Velasquez said in a statement released by the UFC. “To say I was looking forward to fighting in Mexico for the first time is an understatement. I wanted to fight on that card so bad. Looks like it wasn’t meant to be and it’s not going to happen. I’m going to get my [right] knee fixed and get back to training as soon as I can. I’m sorry to the fans in Mexico who were expecting this fight, and I hope to be able to come down and still be a part of this historic event.”

Velasquez ’s time on the shelf has been extended.
The UFC heavyweight champion has been forced to withdraw from his
180 headlining bout against Fabricio
Werdum due to injury. As a result, Werdum will now lock horns
Hunt for the interim title on Nov. 15 in Mexico City. The
promotion announced the change on Tuesday. The withdrawal is
especially damaging considering that Velasquez, who is of Mexican
American descent, was one of the key figures expected to lead the
UFC’s push into Mexico.
The 40-year-old Hunt last appeared at UFC Fight Night in Japan,
where he garnered a second-round knockout of Roy Nelson .
“The Super Samoan” is 5-2-1 in the Octagon overall, with other
notable victories against Ben
Rothwell , Cheick Kongo
Werdum, meanwhile, enters the bout on a four-fight winning streak.
The Brazilian known as “Vai Cavalo” most recently appeared at UFC
on Fox 11, where he displayed improved striking skills en route to

Big Changes Coming for SNAP Beneficiaries
No one begrudges anyone who needs some help during a tough time. But, it was never meant for people to make a living with it, as many are. And many SNAP cards are traded for drugs, cigarettes, and money, with people buying food & selling it for cash. It’s unfortunate that there will always be abuse of this kind with whatever social programs that they come up with. One thing our governor in Wisconsin plans on doing is drug testing for those who get public assistance. That will make it a lot harder for druggies to get their fixes using the SNAP card. I hope things look up for you & your family soon. I too used to get public assistance, and was very glad to have it to help us through our tough times. <

People now can pay for items in apps using a single touch on their device's fingerprint sensor, something that removes time and the hassle of entering credit card and address information over and over. Previously, Apple allowed consumers to use the fingerprint sensor to quickly buy content just from its iTunes , App and iBooks stores.

Sherdog’s Top 10: Current Corners - Number 1
Strategy is a strong suit for Firas Zahabi. | Photo: D.
1. Firas Zahabi |
Much like the fighters he trains, Zahabi is exceptionally
well-rounded. He has built an excellent organizational structure
around Tristar Gym, with housing for fighters from outside the
area, strong relationships with specialists in nutrition and
strength training and a knack for bringing in suitable sparring
partners. Fundamental technique is a strength for Zahabi’s
fighters, especially in wrestling, and it is rare to spot a
significant mechanical flaw in a Tristar product. Zahabi has also
begun to build a track record as a coach who develops young talent,
with up-and-comers such as Olivier
Aubin-Mercier , John
Makdessi and Elias
Theodorou coming to him for coaching.
Zahabi and the Tristar stable of coaches really stand out in two
ways, however, that separate them from the rest of the pack. First,
Zahabi’s work in the corner is exceptional, and he has the ability
to both sense his fighter’s mood and adjust while still providing
relevant technical advice.

Mark Hunt: "I'm going to focus on dropping weight and knocking Fabricio's face off"
"I lost six in a row and they said 'oh you're a bum, what are you still doing here?'. And I said to myself I'm one of the best fighters in the world. I'm not a quitter. I'm looking forward to going to battle with Fabricio in Mexico. This morning I was thinking about when I was going back to training. Now I'm fighting for the title in three weeks. Every fight might be my last so I'm going to give it my all. We're going to go to war. It will be good."

8 life lessons we can learn from Mixed Martial Arts
It is unlikely that two fighters from the same team go up against each other in the cage, but there is the possibility that one might meet his/her former team-mate, your former coach or a former training partner. For example, at ONE FC: ROAR OF TIGERS in Kuala Lumpur on 17 October, Bashir Ahmad and Tanaphong Khunhankaew, who trained together at the same camp for a couple of months, fought each other. It’s just like how a close friend at work can suddenly be in contention for a position you want, your best friend applied for the same job as you, or you fall for the same girl as your buddy. So, don’t get shocked when it happens and be prepared that someone you once thought you knew might turn out to be a monster. Or, if the relationship is really strong, deal with it without hurting each other. Keep your friends close and your enemies closer .
Boxing News: Amir Khan-Devon Alexander Set for Dec. 13 in Las Vegas
Amir Khan will return to action for the first time since
defeating Luis Collazo when he meets Devon Alexander on Dec. 13 in
Golden Boy Promotions President Oscar De La Hoya confirmed the
welterweight bout to
ESPN.com on Wednesday. The event will air on Showtime and will
likely take place at Mandalay Bay Events Center or MGM Grand Garden
Arena. The card will also feature Demetrius Andrade against Jermell
Charlo, as well as Keith Thurman versus Leonard Bundu.
“There are just little details that we are finishing but Khan and
Alexander are going to fight,” De La Hoya told ESPN.com. “Khan
looked good against Collazo, but I have a feeling he wants to make
a statement against Alexander, and Alexander is coming off a good
win in a good action fight with Soto Karass. What’s happening here
is they realize they have to prove themselves if they want to get a
really big fight, like against Mayweather.”
Khan (29-3, 19 KOs) has bounced back well after dropping two
straight junior welterweight world title bouts against Danny Garcia
and Lamont Peterson.
The Jon Jones PSA on Social Media Faux Pas | MMAWeekly.com
Okay, so it’s not really UFC champion Jon Jones . But considering the various missteps he’s made over his tenure as one of the best fighters in the biz, it wouldn’t be a stretch for Jones to have the vast, hands-on knowledge of experience on his side if someone did ask him to do a real PSA on how to handle social media.
Thiago dropped a decision to Jon Fitch in his next outing, but then posted back to back wins against Jacob Volkmann and Mike Swick . Suddenly, Paulo Thiago seemed like a legitimate threat in the welterweight division. Unfortunately, that was essentially his career peak in the UFC. He would never win two consecutive fights again, and the opponents he lost to went from top-of-the-food-chain (Martin Kampmann, Diego Sanchez) to pretty dangerous (Siyar Bahadurzada, Dong Hyun Kim) to downright obscure (Brandon Thatch, Gasan Umalatov). The last time people were talking about Paulo Thiago, it was because of his gig working security at the World Cup .

Bellator 130's Linton Vassell 'fine with flying under the radar' before title fight
“He loves his spinning attacks,” Vassell said. “He loves to grapple, as well, and he’s very game. I know he’s going to bring it and that he won’t be a walk-over by any means. In every fight, you need to test yourself. There’s no sense in taking an easy fight. If you want to be the best, you’ve got to beat the best, and Emanuel Newton is the best.
That politics and fighting often mirror each other in their approach to a major event, is the American way. The term ‘throw your hat into the ring,’ originated around the early 19th century at boxing matches. In those wide open days, if you were confident enough in your own ability to take on the man who had been fighting, or you were seeking someone out to fight, you would throw your hat into the ring. It would be picked up and you would be acknowledged as the next contender. In 1904 it has been reported, the brash and occasionally pugilistic Theodore Roosevelt–the founder of the famed Rough Riders after all in the war with Spain in 1898– is to have said “my hat’s in the ring” when he ran for re-election for President. It was a simple, straight forward remark, easily understood that he was ready for a challenge. By that time, it was common knowledge what the phrase meant from boxing fans to casual observers, this was serious.

Report: Paulo Thiago Released by UFC After 7 Losses in Last 9 Outings

Brazilian welterweight Paulo
Thiago has been released from his
Ultimate Fighting Championship contract.
Combate initially reported the news.
A veteran of 13 fights inside the Octagon, Thiago debuted for the
Las Vegas-based promotion in 2009, winning three of his first four
bouts. Over the course of his next nine fights, the Brazilian would
only win two more. The 33-year-old is currently mired in a
three-fight skid, last competing against Sean
UFC Fight Night “Bigfoot vs. Arlovski 2.”
The former Jungle
Fight competitor also doubles as a member of B.O.P.E., a unit
of Rio de Janeiro’s military police squad.
‘TUF 17’ Competitor Tor Troeng Announces Retirement from MMA

Troeng has retired from MMA following three consecutive losses
The 31-year-old Swede made his announcement on Facebook .
“After almost 10 years as a professional MMA fighter, it’s time for
me to move on. I have decided to put the gloves on the shelf. The
joy and motivation needed to perform at the highest level is no
longer with me,” he wrote.
“I love MMA. MMA has given me many memorable moments, hard
training, meetings with amazing people, and above all a lot of joy.
I want to thank everyone who has been with me on my journey in one
way or another. From its inception in Umea to the big international
arenas. Thanks coaches, family, friends, friends, fans and everyone
else who believed in me and been by my side. You know who you are.
See you soon.”
After posting a 15-4-1 mark outside the Octagon, Troeng appeared as
a member of the cast of “The Ultimate Fighter 17.” His promotional
debut came at UFC on Fuel TV 9, where he scored a first-round
submission against Adam Cella in
UFC releases former welterweight contender Paulo Thiago
This is news that is perhaps unsurprising and openly welcomed. Paulo Thiago was once a darkhorse contender in the welterweight division, which was kick-started after he knocked out Josh Koscheck in 2009. But a noticeably sharp decline in performance led to a run of just 2 wins in his last 9 fights, and the Brazilian's days in the UFC are over. Globo's Ivan Raupp first broke the news that the promotion has parted ways with Thiago after more than 5 years inside the Octagon.
Great Scott! Bellator’s Scott Coker anticipates something big will happen in the next few weeks
When asked whether any big signings would happen in the next few weeks, he answers, “You know what? We will, but that’s top secret. I can’t tell you.” He also ensures, “When the free-agency market hits, we’re going to probably make a bid for some of the top athletes.” Building a talent pool is familiar ground for Coker. When he was involved in the birth of Strikeforce, the organization only had four fighters signed. “We had Frank Shamrock, Cung Le, Gilbert Melendez and Josh Thompson. So we kind of built it as we went.”
‘Treinei para ser campeão’, diz Werdum sobre luta contra Mark Hunt
“Dana disse que tinha duas notícias para me dar, uma boa e outra ruim: ‘você vai disputar o cinturão, mas contra Mark Hunt’”. Ainda surpreso com a notícia, Werdum logo fez questão de aceitar o desafio, independente do rival. “Estou me preparando vários anos para ser o campeão, não vou deixar de lutar porque não será contra o Velasquez”.
King Mo says Dana White and the UFC are behind fan hypocrisy
There's no question that Dana White is currently the biggest name in MMA, and that much of his personal preferences toward the sport shape how the sport is viewed. However, it seems to be difficult to draw a straight line correlation to fan perception on the "realness" of fighter beef. It often just seems to be lightning in a bottle. What do you think? Does "UFC beef" automatically get better cred than non-UFC beef?

205-pound division. | Photo: Keith Mills/Sherdog.com
With his third-round spinning back fist knockout of Joey
Beltran last month, Bellator
MMA light heavyweight champion Emanuel
Newton proved that lightning can indeed strike twice.
When Newton utilized the same maneuver to finish Muhammed
Lawal at Bellator 90 last year, it was viewed by many --
including “King Mo” -- as something of a fluke. Now, after putting
away the durable Beltran in similar fashion, “The Hardcore Kid”
believes he has silenced at least some of the doubters.
“People can see that I can set it up. Not only does it knock you
down; it knocks you out. I think that anybody who has ever doubted
my spinning back fist is a believer now,” Newton told Sherdog.com.
“You’re always going to have your haters out there -- because
that’s what people love to do. You’re going to have your keyboard
warriors: the guys who are just sitting behind the keyboard eating
doughnuts and not happy with their lives, but whatever.

Aldo will carry a 17-fight winning streak into the cage. | Photo:
Ultimate Fighting Championship returns to Brazil on Saturday in
Rio de Janeiro with its first pay-per-view event in the South
American MMA stronghold since August 2013. This is a solid if not
outstanding card that represents the average UFC effort on PPV in
2014, featuring a title fight at the top, a relevant matchup of
top-10 fighters in the co-main event and a mixture of solid
prospects and veterans -- but a dearth of ranked or high-profile
competitors -- below that.
The main event showcases longtime featherweight champion Jose Aldo
making the seventh defense of his UFC title in a rematch against
Team Alpha Male product Chad Mendes .
Despite Aldo’s increasingly conservative approach and his failure
to truly grab the attention of fans, he remains one of the sport’s
top pound-for-pound fighters. Phil Davis
Teixeira meet in a fantastic co-main event, while action fights

Martins , William

UFC 179: Aldo vs. Mendes II Crystal Ball predictions
Speaking of that last bout, throw everything that happened in 2012 out the window. Mendes was on his way to executing his game plan, trying to take Aldo down when Aldo grabbed onto the cage to stop the attempt. In that same motion, Aldo wheeled around and knocked Mendes out with a knee. It was absolutely spectacular, but came through a violation of the rules. That doesn't mean Mendes would have eventually won, of course. Aldo was the better fighter two years ago and he might still be now. It's hard to pick against someone who hasn't lost since he was 19.
