Mike Bohn Joins Press Row

Every Wednesday, Administrative Editor Jordan Breen welcomes a member of the mixed martial arts media into “Press Row” on the Sherdog.com blog. This week, Breen is joined by MMAJunkie and USA Today's Mike Bohn . After spending just 18 months in retirement, MMA legend B.J. Penn announced his return to action this past January, and since then, is now on his fourth slated opponent. Breen and Bohn look at how Penn exited the sport in his third bout with Frankie Edgar and the circumstances that have led to him being slated to face Dennis Siver , Cole Miller , Ricardo Lamas and now Yair Rodriguez . The two also look at how Penn's unique technical and physical abilities make it harder for him to call it quits and whether there is a chance for another fight after Rodriguez, win or lose, should Penn make it to the bout. Breen and Bohn also look at another dubious comeback, as 40-year-old Fedor Emelianenko will meet UFC veteran Matt Mitrione this coming February inside the Bellator cage. Breen and Bohn size up whether an opponent like Tito Ortiz would have made more sense for Emelianenko, what we learned from Emelianenko's controversial June bout with Fabio Maldonado and what plans Scott Coker and Co.

MMA’s Greats of the States | New York: Jon Jones

Mixed martial artists come from every corner of the globe, bearing a variety of styles. Sometimes, fighters are products of their environment, favoring disciplines prevalent in the country or state from which they hail. Various regions of the United States are considered factories for great fighters, though that certainly is not the case with each state. In this weekly Sherdog.com series, the spotlight will shine on the best mixed martial artist of all-time from each of the 50 states. Fighters do not necessarily need to be born in a given state to represent it; they simply need to be associated with it. *** His out-of-competition issues notwithstanding, Jon Jones has become the measuring stick for all mixed martial artists from the state of New York. Still in his 20s, Jones has already left an indelible mark on the sport and thrust his name into the Greatest of All-Time conversation. “Bones” owns a 22-1 record, with his only defeat coming by disqualification to Matt Hamill in December 2009; he was on his way to an easy victory over Hamill before unleashing a series of illegal 12-to-6 elbows at “The Ultimate Fighter 10” Finale.

Opinion: What Potential Conor McGregor Opponents Should Do While Waiting

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. * * * Now that the dust has settled and the UFC 205 madness has subsided, there’s a lingering question about two-division Ultimate Fighting Championship titleholder Conor McGregor ’s next move, and it has the combat sports world curious. The problem: He’s taking a “hiatus” until May for the birth of his child. All that does is create traffic jams in not one, not two but possibly three divisions. For the next six months, every top champion and top contender is going to wait to see if he can cash in on the Irish lottery. Jose Aldo wants revenge; Khabib Nurmagomedov wants his long-awaited title shot; and Tyron Woodley wants a payday. Are all three of them going to sit and wait until McGregor makes a decision? They could, but that’s an awful idea. What should they do? Aldo should fight the Anthony Pettis - Max Holloway and hope McGregor defends his title next spring.

Yoel Romero Suspended 60 Days for Leaving Octagon Following UFC 205 Win

Yoel Romero ’s post-fight celebration after his victory against Chris Weidman at UFC 205 will cost him a couple of months. Romero was suspended 60 days by the New York State Athletic Commission for leaving the Octagon before the official conclusion of the bout. Sherdog.com confirmed the news with an NYSAC official following an initial report from MMAFighting.com . Romero knocked out Weidman with a flying knee 24 seconds into the third round of their middleweight clash. The American Top Team product then jumped out of the Octagon and marched around the outside of the cage before ring announcer Bruce Buffer read the official result. Romero will be able to return to UFC competition on Jan. 12. The suspension shouldn’t do much to affect the Cuban wrestler’s contender status at 185 pounds, however. Recently, reigning champ Michael Bisping said that he’d be willing to defend his title against Romero , but not until the spring 2017. In addition to Romero, the NYSAC has issued a six-month suspension to Kelvin Gastelum for failing to appear at weigh-ins and a three-month sanction to Thiago Alves for missing weight ahead of UFC 205.

Nick Diaz Says His Absence from Nate Diaz’s Corner Was Key Factor at UFC 202

According to Nick Diaz , his brother’s fight against Conor McGregor at UFC 202 was a game of inches, one that could have swayed based on his presence alone. “Just one inch. That’s the difference between how that fight could’ve gone. As far as I’m concerned, I definitely could’ve been that inch,” Diaz said on Opie Radio . “They just wanted to keep me out of there. It would’ve definitely helped him out a lot. I was seeing things in that fight that I would have called and told him. I was seeing things that he wasn’t seeing. Because I do these things, and I know how they work out for me. It’s kind of like a formula. I’m like, ‘Hey look, this is what you do.’ “Come the third and fourth round, I think we would have been able to put it together and get that guy out of there.” Ultimately, Nate Diaz lost a hard-fought majority decision to McGregor in their Aug. 20 rematch. Diaz defeated the Irishman via second-round submission in their first meeting at UFC 196 in March. The Nevada Athletic Commission did not allow Nick Diaz to corner his brother because he hadn’t paid a fine from his suspension for a failed drug test at UFC 183.

UFC Fight Night 102 Update: Justine Kish vs. Ashley Yoder Set for Albany

A strawweight clash pitting Justine Kish against Ashley Yoder has been added to the UFC Fight Night 102 lineup. The Las Vegas-based promotion recently confirmed the pairing. UFC Fight Night 102 takes place at Times Union Center in Albany, N.Y., on Dec. 9 and is headlined by a heavyweight duel between Derrick Lewis and Shamil Abdurakhimov . The card will stream in its entirety on UFC Fight Pass. Kish made her Octagon debut at UFC 195 on Jan. 2, when she took a unanimous verdict over Nina Ansaroff . The 28-year-old Black House representative is 5-0 as a professional and also owns a notable triumph over Randa Markos under the Resurrection Fighting Alliance banner. Yoder, meanwhile, will make a quick turnaround following a second-round submission of Amber Brown at Invicta FC 20 on Nov. 18. The Team Quest product is 5-1 as a pro, with four of her triumphs coming via armbar.

The Bottom Line: The Sad Fall of the Light Heavyweight Division

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. * * * There is often a tendency in combat sports to romanticize the history of the heavyweight division. However, in mixed martial arts, more often than not the light heavyweight has been the sport’s marquee division. Heavyweight has had its moments and superstars have broken through in many other divisions, but light heavyweight has consistently been MMA’s centerpiece. Just 10 years ago, as the Ultimate Fighting Championship was exploding and Pride Fighting Championships was still riding high, 205-pound fighters led the way. Chuck Liddell ’s rivalry with Randy Couture was the driving force behind the first season of “The Ultimate Fighter,” and Tito Ortiz ’s feuds with Liddell and Ken Shamrock set pay-per-view records. Meanwhile in Pride, Wanderlei Silva was the superstar foreigner at 205 pounds, chased by native heroes like Kazushi Sakuraba and Hidehiko Yoshida as well as foreign rivals like Ricardo Arona and Quinton Jackson .

Up first will be No. 1 seed Alexandre Pantoja taking on No. 5 seed Hiromasa Ogikubo while the other side of the bracket will see No. 15 seed Eric Shelton taking on No. 3 seed Tim Elliott . The show begins with Ultimate Fighting Championship President Dana White pumped about the final four fighters and he believes it’s a toss-up as to which ones will emerge at the end for a chance to fight Demetrious Johnson for the UFC flyweight championship. Coaches Joseph Benavidez and Henry Cejudo are anxious and excited and both men feel their combatant will prevail. No time is wasted the action begins within minutes, Ogikubo is already walking to the Octagon and Team Benavidez has his back in full. The same goes for Pantoja and Team Cejudo and before we know it, the fight is underway with Jason Herzog serving as the third man in the cage. Round one begins with Ogikubo keeping away while Pantoja presses the action.
