Matches to Make After UFC Fight Night ‘Werdum vs. Tybura’

Fabricio Werdum cements his spot atop the heavyweight division with the big win over Marcin Tybura! #UFCSydney — FOX Sports: UFC (@UFCONFOX) November 19, 2017 Father Time has not yet billed Fabricio Werdum . The two-time Abu Dhabi Combat Club Submission Wrestling World Championships gold medalist kept his place in line near the top of the Ultimate Fighting Championship heavyweight division, as he took a three-round unanimous decision from Marcin Tybura in the UFC Fight Night 121 main event on Saturday at Qudos Bank Arena in Sydney. All three cageside judges sided with the 40-year-old Werdum: 50-45, 50-45 and 49-46. Tybura simply could not match the Brazilian’s output. Werdum kicked effectively to the legs, body and head while operating behind a penetrating jab. He consolidated his efforts with multi-punch volleys upstairs and occasional knee strikes to the head and body. Nothing Tybura tried seemed to give Werdum pause, as the Polish upstart was foiled in his bid for a fourth straight win. In the aftermath of UFC Fight Night “Werdum vs.

UFC Fight Night 121 Post-Mortem: A Night of Attrition

UFC Fight Night 121 on Saturday in Sydney set a record for the most in-cage time for an event in Ultimate Fighting Championship history. It was a night of attrition. Back-and-forth contests carried the day, along with plenty of controversial decisions, and a heavyweight great took home yet another win in the main event. The Australian crowd got its money’s worth. Pride Never Die Fabricio Werdum made the walk to the cage for the 30th time in his career and the 11th time in the UFC. This one played out like most of his others, with Werdum dominating much of the bout against Marcin Tybura . Unlike many fights early in his career, this one was won with superior striking. Since he moved to Kings MMA and came under the tutelage of Rafael Cordeiro , we have seen Werdum make significant strides in his standup; and against Tybura, it proved to be enough to secure a hard-fought win. The fight played out over five rounds in which Werdum was the aggressor, landing hard straight punches and knees. While Tybura was criticized for his lack of output, he was effective with his right hooks over the top and his head kicks, four of which he landed on Werdum.

UFC 205-Pound Contender Volkan Oezdemir Arrested for Aggravated Battery in Florida

Volkan Oezdemir has been a breakthrough sensation in 2017, but the Ultimate Fighting Championship light heavyweight contender’s push toward a title shot may have just hit a serious snag. Oezdemir, 28, was arrested on Saturday night and has been charged with aggravated battery in Fort Lauderdale, Fla. According to the record of his arrest , the 205-pound standout is being held at Broward County Jail pending trial and is being held on a $10,000 bond pending trial. His charge is formally listed as “Aggravated Battery - Cause Bodily Harm or Disability.” Details of the incident have yet to be disclosed. A Swiss native, Oezdemir made his UFC debut on short notice this past February at UFC Fight Night 104 in Houston, Texas, stepping in for an injured Jan Blachowicz and taking an upset split decision over Ovince St. Preux . Since his successful promotional debut, the Combat Club rep has sizzled in the Octagon, knocking out top-10 opponents Misha Cirkunov and Jimi Manuwa in a combined 70 seconds in his two subsequent outings.

Undefeated Ketlen Vieira to Face Former Title Challenger Cat Zingano at UFC 222 on March 3

Undefeated Brazilian prospect Ketlen Vieira won’t be facing a former Ultimate Fighting Championship titlist in her next bout. Instead, she’ll have to settle for a former title challenger. Vieira has signed on to face veteran Cat Zingano in a bantamweight clash at UFC 222 , scheduled for March 3 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. MMA Brasil was first to report the pairing on Friday. This past Thursday, Zingano teased via Instagram that she had a fight lined up. “I have who. I have where. I know when. It’s time,” the Colorado native wrote. Vieira was briefly linked to a fight with former UFC 145-pound queen Germaine de Randamie who is eyeing a return to bantamweight. However, “The Iron Lady” told MMA Fighting last week that her right hand injury requires more rehab after surgery. "I’m still rehabbing from my injury,” de Randamie said last Thursday, "never did I signed or agree to fight anyone at this point. The UFC also knows I’m not able to fight right now. I need to let my body heal properly." The bout will be the 35-year-old Zingano’s first action in 20 months.

CSAC Grants Jon Jones Continuance, Moves Hearing from Dec. 12 to February

Jon Jones won’t appear before the California State Athletic Commission until next year. CSAC Executive Director Andy Foster confirmed to on Tuesday that the former UFC light heavyweight champion has been granted a continuance and will not appear before the commission until an as-yet-to-be determined date in February. Jones, who tested positive for the anabolic steroid Turinabol after his victory over Daniel Cormier at UFC 214 on July 29, had a hearing originally scheduled for Dec. 12. Jones’ victory over Cormier was changed to a no contest, and “DC” has since been reinstated as light heavyweight champion. The Jackson-Wink MMA representative also failed a drug test prior to UFC 200, testing positive for clomiphene and Letrozol. “Bones” was suspended for a year after being found negligent for using a sexual enhancement pill that contained both substances. Jones is still awaiting discipline from USADA, the UFC’s anti-doing partner, in the case as well. Recently, the Albuquerque, N.M., resident posted some optimistic content on social media, including a video with the caption, “If I made to the top of the mountain once, I can do it again.

Dustin Poirier's neck was a little sore, but without Mike Brown, it could've been worse

“I used to have more of a pure jiu-jitsu style, but since I’ve been at American Top Team, Mike Brown has helped me round out my grappling for MMA so much more,” Poirier said. “I’m more of a top guy now. I give up less positions chasing submissions, and he’s a guy who’s really dedicated and spent a lot of time perfecting the things I was doing wrong, and still to this day, (he’s) tightening up a lot of things.

Michael Bisping: By The Numbers

Michael Bisping did not spend much time licking his wounds. No longer atop the Ultimate Fighting Championship middleweight division, Bisping will collide with “The Ultimate Fighter 17” winner Kelvin Gastelum in the UFC Fight Night 122 headliner this Saturday at the Mercedes-Benz Arena in Shanghai, China. “The Count” answered the call to fill in for Anderson Silva , who was removed from the event after the United States Anti-Doping Agency notified him of a potential violation. One of the sport’s most successful and polarizing figures, Bisping last competed at UFC 217 on Nov. 4, when he was choked unconscious and surrendered his 185-pound championship to the returning Georges St. Pierre at Madison Square Garden in New York. The loss snapped a run of five consecutive victories for the Englishman, his longest such streak since he started his professional career 14-0. As Bisping prepares to take on Gastelum in the UFC’s first visit to mainland China, here are some of the numbers that have come to define him: 2: Fighters in UFC history who have spent more than six hours competing in the Octagon.

Bryan Caraway out at UFC-Fresno, Luke Sanders needs new opponent

Caraway, who is currently ranked No. 11 in the latest USA TODAY Sports/MMAjunkie MMA bantamweight rankings , hasn’t competed since a May 2016 win over Aljamain Sterling. Caraway was scheduled to meet fast-rising contender Jimmie Rivera this past January, but injury forced him out of that matchup, as well. “Kid Lightning” stands at 4-1 in his past five contests but fought just once in 2015, once in 2016 and now appears unlikely to compete in 2017, at all, though an exact timetable for his return wasn’t evident.

Champ Max Holloway questions Jose Aldo's mindset ahead of UFC 218 rematch

“This guy, we fought him in his hometown, he was the champion, and for him to be saying that now he feels way more motivated; fighting for your country and fighting in front of your people for your belt is not enough motivation, what’s going on?” Holloway said on today’s UFC 218 media call. “I’m motivated. The belt is great. You know what comes with the belt? Better payday, pay-per-views and a lot more stuff, but the belt is the belt. A fight is a fight.

5 Things You Might Not Know About Kelvin Gastelum

Kelvin Gastelum traded in one former Ultimate Fighting Championship titleholder for another. “The Ultimate Fighter 17” winner will meet deposed middleweight champion Michael Bisping in the UFC Fight Night 122 headliner this Saturday at the Mercedes-Benz Arena in Shanghai, China, where he can add a significant piece to an already impressive resume. Bisping serves as a short-notice replacement for Anderson Silva , who was flagged for a potential violation by the United States Anti-Doping Agency. Gastelum, 26, has compiled an 8-3 record inside the Octagon but has not competed since he submitted to a third-round arm-triangle choke from Chris Weidman at UFC on Fox 25 in July. Operating out of Kings MMA and training under the watchful eye of Rafael Cordeiro , Gastelum has become a finely tuned offensive weapon, with nine of his 13 career victories coming by knockout, technical knockout or submission. As Gastelum prepares for his pivotal showdown with Bisping, here are five things you might not know about him: 1. He was shaped by countless hours on the mat. Gastelum won a state wrestling championship at Cibola High School in Yuma, Arizona, in 2009.
