Report: Tae Hyun Bang Gets 10 Months in Prison for Fight Fixing at 2015 UFC Event

South Korean lightweight Tae Hyun Bang was sentenced to 10 months in prison for his role in a fight-fixing scheme at UFC Fight Night 79, according to a report from The Korea Herald . Bang was sentenced in Seoul Central District Court for taking bribes totaling $92,160 to throw his fight against Leo Kuntz on Nov. 28, 2015. The three brokers who paid Bang also received jail time, according to the report. One of those men was reportedly Pride Fighting Championship veteran Dae Won Kim . Kim allegedly acted as the middle man in the fix-fixing plot. “The crime of match fixing damages the credibility of sport, and in international matches, it has a bad effect on the country’s credibility as well,” the court said. “Bang had an obligation to play the game fairly, but he ignored it and took an important role in the scheme. But we did take into consideration that Bang won the bout and returned the money afterwards.” Bang allegedly agreed to lose the first two rounds to Kuntz, but “The Korean Cowboy” apparently changed his mind and went on to win a split decision over his opponent.

UFC Fight Night 122 Prelims: Zabit Magomedsharipov Anaconda Chokes Sheymon da Silva Moraes

THIS GUY!!@Zabit_MMA puts on another spectacular performance and finishes Moraes in round 3! Unreal! #UFCShanghai — UFC (@ufc) November 25, 2017 Shares in Zabit Magomedsharipov stock continue to soar. Magomedsharipov improved to 2-0 in the Ultimate Fighting Championship featherweight division, as he submitted Sheymon da Silva Moraes with a third-round anaconda choke in the featured UFC Fight Night 122 prelim on Saturday at the Mercedes-Benz Arena in Shanghai. Moraes (9-2, 0-1 UFC) bowed out 4:30 into Round 3. Despite the Brazilian’s best efforts, it was not competitive. Magomedsharipov (14-1, 2-0 UFC) overwhelmed the World Series of Fighting veteran with takedowns, positional control and ground-and-pound. Moraes spent much of the match in survival mode, buried beneath the former Absolute Championship Berkut titleholder. In the third round, Magomedsharipov landed a takedown, climbed to full mount and found the anaconda choke in a scramble, gator rolling into a dominant position before eliciting the tapout. Magomedsharipov has rattled off 10 straight wins.

After dropping two of his first three in his return, he has surged in the past year and a half with a 53-second knockout of Bubba Jenkins in August 2016, a first-round TKO win over Kirill Medvedovsky a year ago and a second-round TKO from a doctor’s stoppage over Daniel Pineda at Bellator 182 in August. That win got him back on track after a majority decision loss to Emmanuel Sanchez in January.

Sherdog’s Official Mixed Martial Arts Rankings - Gastelum in the Middle of Things

Maybe you still think Kelvin Gastelum is an elite welterweight with an extra 15 pounds on him, and you may be right. However, regardless of whether or not Gastelum ever makes 170 pounds again, this update of the official Sherdog rankings has him right in the middle of things at 185. Gastelum’s 2017 campaign has been complicated, to say the least. Forced up to 185 because of his constant battle with the scale at welterweight, “The Ultimate Fighter 17” winner met faded Vitor Belfort in March, destroying him in less than four minutes to set up a potential June showdown with another Brazilian legend in Anderson Silva . Unfortunately, Gastelum tested positive for cannabinoid metabolites, voiding his Belfort victory and nixing the Silva contest. Instead, Gastelum was rebooked for July, headlining UFC on Fox 25 against former middleweight king Chris Weidman , a man he nearly knocked out in the first round before succumbing to an arm-triangle choke in the third. The UFC opted to rebook the Silva contest for Nov. 25 to headline its mainland China debut, but naturally, knowing Gastelum’s fortunes, “The Spider” was then flagged for a potential drug violation by the U.

Miesha Tate: Holly Holm Has Right Style to Defeat Cris ‘Cyborg’ at UFC 219

Miesha Tate isn’t counting Holly Holm out against Cristiane Justino . In fact, Tate believes the former bantamweight champion might be the most intriguing stylistic matchup out there for “Cyborg.” Holm will challenge for Justino’s featherweight crown at UFC 219 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on Dec. 30. The 32-year-old Brazilian has been a wrecking machine for the duration of her career, earning 16 of her 18 triumphs via knockout or technical knockout. That includes a trio of victories in the Octagon. “Of anybody that I can think to fight Cyborg to right now, that has the best chance, I honestly, truly believe that it’s Holly,” Tate said during a recent appearance on MMA Tonight on Sirius XM Rush . “The reason I say that is, if Cyborg cannot get ahold of Holly, if she recklessly chases her down - similar to how Ronda [Rousey] did, not using the correct angles - if she follows her like a missile - which she does in every fight I’ve ever seen before. That’s how she hunts girls down because she can. With Holly, that’s not a good idea.

Michael Bisping's two stoppage losses in three weeks leave UFC with one big question

“First of all, if you get a concussion, if you get knocked out or you get hurt whatsoever in the UFC, three months suspension,” White said. “You are on suspension for three months, and you cannot come back until you are cleared by a doctor. You can’t have any contact whatsoever. In the NFL, you’re not going to lose Tom Brady for three months, man. You lose Tom Brady for three months, and your whole season is wiped out.”

Trading Shots: How will we remember Michael Bisping once he's gone?

After a loss at UFC Fight Night 122 in Shanghai, Michael Bisping said he still plans to fight one more time and then call it quits. But how will we remember him once he’s gone? And what are the odds he changes his mind about leaving when the time comes? Former UFC and WEC fighter Danny Downes joins MMAjunkie columnist Ben Fowlkes to discuss in this week’s Trading Shots.

Joe Rogan criticizes Michael Bisping's 'crazy' turnaround: 'It just does not make sense'

“You really have to protect the fighter from themselves,” Rogan said. “You really can’t be letting a guy fight three weeks after a brutal fight like that. It just does not make sense. I don’t think it’s smart. I understand the UFC needed someone to fill in on short notice because Anderson Silva tested positive for performance-enhancing drugs and they did not want to lose the Shanghai main event. It turns into an even bigger fight when you’ve got the former middleweight champion right off his loss.

UFC Fight Night 122 Post-Mortem: Changing Lanes

UFC Fight Night 122 on Saturday in Shanghai marked the Ultimate Fighting Championship ’s first ever event in mainland China; and with plenty of victories for hometown fighters, it seems it all went picture perfect, including a vicious knockout in the main event that may help usher in the new guard for the middleweight division. Ushering in the New Guard Michael Bisping made the walk to the Octagon just three weeks after being tossed from the middleweight throne by Georges St. Pierre and took on “The Ultimate Fighter 17” winner Kelvin Gastelum in the main event. Bisping got off to a promising start by utilizing crisp boxing and fast footwork, but it proved to be a short night for the former champion. Midway through the first round, Gastelum managed to slip a straight shot from Bisping and land a crushing left hand that had “The Count” out before he hit the canvas. The decisive win helped Gastelum bounce back from a stoppage loss to former middleweight champion Chris Weidman in July. Afterward, Gastelum made it clear he is setting his sights directly on the top of the division.

“Demetrious Johnson’s always showed up,” Dillashaw said. “He’s always done his job. He’s always been the better fighter. He’s looked awesome. He’s finished fights – looking great. Really, what it comes down to, is not having an opponent to say, ‘We’re excited about this fight.’ Everyone’s always excited like, ‘Let’s see if Demetrious Johnson can break the record,’ or ‘He’s on this long win streak,’ this, this and that. But they never talk about Demetrious Johnson and who he’s fighting.
