UFC records fall: Every fight ends with a finish on amazing night in Sydney
The previous record for most finishes at a UFC event was 10, which was tied Friday night when Al Iaquinta took out Ross Pearson by TKO in the second round of the co-main event. Also on the four-fight main card, Soa Palelei beat Walt Harris by TKO in the second round and Robert Whittaker did the same to Clint Hester.
Preview: UFC Fight Night ‘Shogun vs. St. Preux’ - Rua vs. St. Preux
much does Mauricio “Shogun” Rua have left in the tank? | Photo:
Ultimate Fighting Championship on Saturday makes its second
appearance in Brazil in three weeks, this time in the fantastically
named city of Uberlandia. What the card lacks in name value -- it
boasts only four ranked fighters -- it more than makes up for with
potential violence and a strong lineup of exciting prospects.
Former light heavyweight champion Mauricio “Shogun” Rua takes on
the talented and dangerous Ovince St.
Preux in the main event after a late injury to scheduled
headliner Jimi Manuwa
forced a reshuffling of the deck. Flyweights Ian McCall and
Lineker meet in what promises to be an exciting co-main event,
while “The Ultimate Fighter: Brazil 3” winner and fast-rising star
Alves will scrap with the entertaining Alan Jouban
in a fun welterweight battle. Below them, a number of interesting
prospects -- Thomas
Almeida , Leon
Edwards , Dhiego Lima
Covington -- fill out the rest of the card.

Bisping , the former Strikeforce
middleweight champion Rockhold earned $50,000 for his guillotine
choke finish of “The Count.” Following a close first round, the
30-year-old caught Bisping with a head kick that rocked the former
light heavyweight, then sunk in the submission for the “Performance
of the Night” victory.
UPDATE: Ian McCall out of UFC Fight Night Uberlandia co-main event vs. John Lineker
The operative word is "might", but it's looking like the UFC has lost its co-main event just 24 hours before showtime. In terms of relevance, this was unquestionably the best fight on the card and one of the more anticipated bouts this month. It would be devastating to see this fight scrapped due to a last-minute illness, but we'll see if McCall will fight through it or if the UFC is forced into reshuffling the bout order yet again.

John Lineker on canceled fight: Ian McCall was going to the hospital anyway
“Demetrious Johnson hasn’t fought since September, and he needs a new contender. I’ll fight him anywhere, anytime. Otherwise, I think the UFC is coming back to Brazil in February. If it’s going to be Ian McCall, let’s do it then, and hopefully this time he can wait until Saturday night to enjoy our health care.”

UFC Fight Night: Shogun vs. St. Preux staff picks and predictions
Kyle McLachlan : While the Brad Pickett fight should've proven to me that McCall has finally reined in his want to trade whenever he is tagged (as well as showing he can keep his head off centre) I'll need to see him do it a few times before I'm convinced he's less erratic than he is prone to be. The same goes for Lineker; although he showed the ability to pace himself and not gas within three rounds last time out, I'd need to see him do it again to make sure it wasn't an anomaly. Very hard to pick, but I can see Lineker doing the chasing, landing the harder shots and, with hometown advantage, sneaking a close win despite Uncle Creepy probably doing the quality work more consistently. John Lineker by decision

Juliana Lima on UFC debut: Additional weight-cutting time made matters worse
“For the first time, my body wouldn’t respond, and I was one pound away from target on weigh-in day. I was not able to perspire anymore. I was given two additional hours to lose that pound, and that was even worse. I took my body to the limit. I had been very confident beforehand. I was very well-trained. It was one of the best camps of my life. But I won’t blame the weight cut for my loss. Joanna Jedrzejczyk was simply the better fighter that night.”
UFC's Matt Brown suggests Tarec Saffiedine fight almost finalized, predicts KO win
If booked, Brown will look to rebound from a July “Fight of the Night” loss to Robbie Lawler, which served as UFC on FOX 12’s headliner and a title eliminator. Prior to the decision defeat, Brown has posted a seven-fight winning streak (with six knockouts) that had him within grasp of a title shot.
David Branch Looking to Make Dominant Title Defense Against Yushin Okami
By his own admission, David Branch is a late bloomer. While that term is most often directly tied to a fighter's success in mixed martial arts—something Branch has found in solid clips the past few years—the New York native used those words to describe the versatile fighting style he's crafted during the most recent chapter of his career. Branch has expanded his arsenal to a point where the 33-year-old middleweight is not only able to handle everything that comes his way inside the cage, but he's confident of the danger he brings from start to finish once the action goes live. Proof of this progress came in the form of Branch becoming World Series of Fighting's inaugural middleweight champion. He earned the promotion's 185-pound strap by submitting veteran Jesse Taylor in the first round of their title tilt at WSOF 10 back in June 2014—his fourth consecutive victory since signing with the upstart organization back in 2012. And while earning the first major title of his seven-year career was a defining moment for Branch, the Brooklyn-based fighter isn't willing to rest on that accomplishment.

By trying to avoid padded record, Jorge Oliveira got late-notice UFC call
“I’ve been feeling very happy over the last few days,” Oliveira told MMAjunkie. “It’s a dream come true. I’ve gone through many difficult periods in life. I recently lost my sister. I also lost a childhood friend. He died because he was involved in some bad things. These difficult moments happened one after the other. So being in the UFC, because people believed in me, is a great victory in itself. I knew all along that I would make it.”
Hopkins vs. Kovalev: Live fight online coverage with live streaming results
As we draw closer and closer to the opening bell, this is increasingly looking like one of the most fascinating fights of 2014. Bernard Hopkins has long passed the point where he has anything to prove, and he's also long passed the point where you should count him out of a fight - 49 years old or not. On paper, the veteran certainly seems like fodder for Kovalev - a big name for the fearsome Russian to knock into oblivion. And when the bell rings tonight, that may indeed be what happens. But it's likely B-Hop has a few tricks up his sleeve, and has a plan in place to deal with the big (BIG) power of Kovalev. What exactly are those tricks, and will they work? Well that's for Hopkins to know and us to find out - tonight.

Roosmalen went into the fight with a 2-0 record against Kiria, and he used the same combination of speed, volume, and accuracy to outpoint Kiria over the course of 5 grueling, hard fought rounds. But it wasn't easy; after dropping rounds 1 and 2, Kiria almost scored another miracle comeback win, dropping Roosmalen in the 3rd and evening the fight up heading into the championship rounds. The 4th round was close, with Roosmalen again taking control and taking the 5th. In the end, he took a majority decision victory, 48-46, 48-46, 47-47.

"Believe me, the fact that people are arguing over who should get a title shot in the 145-pound division isn't a bad thing. It's a good thing."
Fighters React To Luke Rockhold's Finish of Michael Bisping Via Twitter | MMAWeekly.com
Following middleweight contender Luke Rockhold’s second-round finish of Michael Bisping at UFC Fight Night 55 in Sydney on Friday, fighters took to the social media site Twitter to react.
Luke Rockhold takes his game over the top Down Under
Luke Rockhold was so relaxed during his main event bout with Michael Bisping that the chaos of fighting almost felt leisurely. He was so tranquil and patient after all those miles of travel and trash talk that, even while ceding the first round to Bisping on the scorecards, it played out like an act of absentmindedness…he just left his thermos sitting on the counter as he headed off to work was all. When he collided heads with Bisping while throwing a right hook, it was almost like he peeled open an eye from an afternoon slumber just to see what time it was. Between rounds he repeated his corner’s instructions word-for-word before going back out and forcing Bisping to tap. It was the first time Bisping has tapped in 32 professional fights; nobody makes Bisping say uncle . Rockhold, wearing a beard and an attitude of touristy bemusement, made the whole thing look entirely too easy at UFC Fight Night 55. In fact, he could have finished Bisping via strikes after whapping a shin across his chops, but instead he very coolly -- very methodically , very casually -- snatched the neck for a guillotine.

Kickboxing: Zack Mwekassa Knows No Fear Ahead of Glory 18 Tournament
Mwekassa calls his win over Pat Barry at Glory 16 a “life-changing
experience.” | Dave Mandel/Sherdog.com
Zack Mwekassa (11-1, 10 KO's) became an overnight sensation in the
kickboxing world when he stopped UFC veteran Pat “HD” Barry in the
first round of their contest at Glory 16 “Denver.”
It was both men’s debut for the premier kickboxing league and
Barry, the big name, was expected to score a big finish. Instead,
it was Mwekassa who stole some of his shine by scoring a KO which
became, in his words, “a life-changing experience.”
The fight was televised on a national network in Mwekassa’s native
Congo. People turned out in droves to welcome him when he came back
to his homeland.
“My return to Congo was amazing. It was majestic -- when we landed
there was about 5,000 people waiting for me outside the airport.
There was a convertible car, and I stood up in the back as we drove
through the crowd. People were doing traditional chants and dances,
waving flags,” he said.
“It was amazing. They put me in the fanciest hotel in the capital.
Glory 19 announced; Rico Verhoeven vs Errol Zimmerman title fight to headline Dec. 19
Also announced for the show is a Welterweight contender tournament. Semifinals are Nieky Holzken vs. Artur Kyshenko and Raymond Daniels vs. Jonatan Oliveira. There are a lot of interesting facets to this tournament. Holzken makes his return here after a year long absence; in his last fight, he KO'd now champion Joseph Valtellini. Kyshenko's last Glory fight was a loss, but he also holds a 2011 win over Holzken. On the other side of the bracket, Oliveira is the tournament underdog, as he takes on Raymond Daniels, fresh off his KO of the year victory over Francois Ambang in Denver.

RFA 20 video highlights: Will Luke Sanders' spectacular finish lead to UFC contract?
The victory, which marked the sixth knockout of Sanders’ career, prompted a post-fight interview in which the 28-year-old stumped for a shot in the UFC. And if recent history tells us anything, winning an RFA belt is likely to result in his wish being granted.
UFC Fight Night: Bisping vs. Rockhold results - Winners and losers
Ross Pearson . If you pretend that the Diego Sanchez loss was actually a win (which it totally was), then Pearson was essentially on a five-fight unbeaten streak prior to facing Iaquinta. He'd been racking up the finishes and looking the part of a fringe contender. Presumably a win over Al would've gotten him a step up to face a top 15 fighter, but those plans were squashed emphatically. This is a major step back for Ross, whose ceiling is probably easy to define at this stage. He's a B+ type of fighter who just can't separate himself from the rest of the crowded mid-tier of lightweight and become a contender.
