Coach: UFC Should Pay Nate Diaz $15 Million to Fight Tyron Woodley

It doesn’t appear that Nate Diaz is going to fight Tyron Woodley at UFC 219 unless the promotion is willing to make him an extremely lucrative offer. According to longtime boxing Richard Perez , the Las Vegas-based promotion hasn’t come through in that regard. Diaz hasn’t competed since losing a majority decision to Conor McGregor in their rematch at UFC 202 in August 2016. “I don’t think [they’ll fight at UFC 219]. The UFC doesn’t want to give Nathan the money,” Perez told Submission Radio . "You know, because what Woodley’s trying to do, he’s trying to get his name up there and he wants to fight the best, so he wants to fight Nathan. But UFC doesn’t want to pay Nathan, so why fight him? We can fight McGregor.” Woodley has been lobbying for a fight with Diaz at the UFC’s Dec. 30 event in Las Vegas. The reigning welterweight champion, who is coming off a successful title defense against Demian Maia at UFC 214, has sought a so-called “money fight” ever since he claimed the 170-pound title with a knockout of Robbie Lawler in 2016.

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 MMAFighting.com 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.

“I didn’t want to go from fighting the greatest of all time to just fighting Joe Schmoe – that just wouldn’t make sense for me, for my career,” Gastelum told MMAjunkie today in Shanghai. “I want to keep making steps forward, not making steps backward. … I was really happy we got a replacement. I was really happy that Mike stepped up – how badass is he? I feel this is actually an even bigger fight for my career.”

Why Matt Mitrione was initially bummed by Bellator heavyweight grand prix

“Yeah, I think I expected it, to be honest,” he said. “I feel like I’m the best heavyweight Bellator has to offer, and I say rather readily that on any given day, I’m the best heavyweight in the world. I had just a couple of missteps (during my UFC career), and it cost me a pretty substantial amount in my name value, but I feel like when it comes down to scrapping, I’m one of the best in the world. So I’m not surprised I’m the favorite.

They’re always trying to work on everything. But when he does return to the octagon, his hands are going to be a lot better than what they were. And I’m excited to see that.”

Matt Hughes: UFC ‘Not as Special’ in Modern Era with Fights on ‘Darn Near Every Week’

Count Matt Hughes among those in the MMA community who believes the Ultimate Fighting Championship has oversaturated the market with fight cards. Prior to his near-fatal accident this past summer, the ex-UFC welterweight champion did an interview on “Undeniable with Joe Buck” addressing the matter. The interview will air on DirecTV and Audience Network on Wednesday at 8 p.m. ET/PT. “I think it’s too commercial,” Hughes said. “They’ve got fights darn near every week (on) one of the three channels they’re on, and I think it’s too commercial. I am so happy that timing worked out for me where I fought when I did. I really think that I fought in the golden ages. “I started at UFC 22, and I don’t even know what my last one was – around (UFC) 110 or 115 or something – but I think I was in the golden ages. It was when people got together to watch the UFC. It wasn’t – because they’re so often now.” Hughes made his Octagon debut with a unanimous decision win over Valeri Ignatov at UFC 22 on Sept. 24, 1999. That year, the UFC held just six events total. In 2017 alone, the Las Vegas-based promotion will have held 39 events, airing on UFC Fight Pass, Fox Sports 1, Fox and pay-per-view.

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.

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.

Ex-champ Matt Hughes says busy UFC schedule 'too commercial' these days

Daniel Cormier tweeted something peculiar about Tony Ferguson, Khabib Nurmagomedov

Purely speculating here, but before the Cris Cyborg-Holly Holm title fight got booked last week , my guess is the UFC tossed some Hail Mary’s in hopes of booking a main-event worthy fight for the Dec. 30 pay-per-view in Las Vegas. Ferguson vs. Nurmagomedov was one of those desperation inquiries, even though Nurmagomedov is already booked against Edson Barboza on the card.

Matt Mitrione Isn't That Thrilled at the Idea of the Bellator Heavyweight Grand Prix | BJPenn.com

“Yeah, I think I expected [to be the favorite to win the grand prix], to be honest. I feel like I’m the best heavyweight Bellator has to offer, and I say rather readily that on any given day, I’m the best heavyweight in the world. I had just a couple of missteps [during my UFC career] and it cost me a pretty substantial amount in my name value, but I feel like when it comes down to scrapping, I’m one of the best in the world. So, I’m not surprised I’m the favorite. Then again, in that same breath, we have three light heavyweights and a bloated middleweight. If it was a full-fledged heavyweight grand prix or heavyweight tournament, then I think it might possibly be a little different. I think the smaller bodies make it a much more interesting tournament, for sure.” — Matt Mitrione speaking to MMA Junkie radio.

Daniel Cormier Puts Tony Ferguson on Blast For Not Accepting Khabib's Fight | BJPenn.com

Not only does Daniel Cormier try to convince Tony Ferguson to accept the fight, he goes on to drop a nuggets of inside info: Supposedly, the UFC still aren’t happy with the UFC 219 card as it stands and a shot at Conor McGregor is off the table for Ferguson. As of right now, this is all talk from second-hand sources, but Nurmagomedov clearly has the light heavyweight champion in his corner gunning for the big match-up. Although, if this happens, it may be the first time an interim title is defended.

Andre Soukhamthath steps in for Bryan Caraway, meets Luke Sanders at UFC-Fresno

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. He was scheduled to meet fast-rising contender Jimmie Rivera this past January, but injury forced him out of that matchup, as well. Caraway is 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.
