Tecia Torres Outstrikes Michelle Waterson En Route to Decision Win (UFC 218 Results) |

Torres took Waterson’s back late in the round, eventually planting Waterson face down on the canvas, and unloaded with an onslaught of right hands. Waterson would give up, though, twisting and turning until she eventually escaped and they returned to their feet, only to be met by a couple of Torres punches as the final horn sounded.

6 How to watch UFC 218: Fight card, start time, online results, how to stream Holloway vs. Aldo 2

In the headliner, featherweight champion Max Holloway (18-3 MMA, 14-3 UFC) rematches former titleholder Jose Aldo (26-3 MMA, 8-2 UFC). In the co-headliner, contenders Francis Ngannou (10-1 MMA, 5-0 UFC) and Alistair Overeem (43-15 MMA, 8-4 UFC) meet in a title eliminator and fight for the right to a heavyweight title shot.

Unless Overeem wins or Cain feels like he might comeback or Anthony Johnson returns or Brock returns or DC moves to heavyweight. Then the winner gets a title shot.

5 Things You Might Not Know About Michelle Waterson

Michelle Waterson wants to stay relevant behind the usual suspects in the Ultimate Fighting Championship women’s strawweight division. In her way stands another mainstay at 115 pounds. Waterson will meet American Top Team ’s Tecia Torres in a three-round strawweight feature at UFC 218 “Holloway vs. Aldo 2” this Saturday at Little Caesars Arena in Detroit. While their confrontation does not figure to carry title implications, the stakes are undeniably high for both fighters. Waterson saw her modest two-fight winning streak snapped at UFC on Fox 24 in April, when she submitted to a rear-naked choke from Rose Namajunas -- the woman who would go on to upset Joanna Jedrzejczyk for the undisputed women’s strawweight championship seven months later. Operating out of the Jackson-Wink MMA camp in Albuquerque, New Mexico, “The Karate Hottie” has compiled a 2-1 record since joining the UFC roster in 2015. As Waterson barrels toward her pivotal showdown with the once-beaten Torres, here are five things you might not know about her: 1. She prefers to go out on her shield.

Preview: UFC 218 ‘Holloway vs. Aldo 2’ - Holloway vs. Aldo 2

As the holiday season begins, UFC 218 on Saturday in Detroit might not be exactly what we asked for. Max Holloway , who turns a ripe old 26 this Monday, has won 11 consecutive fights and is already putting together a historically noteworthy resume. Seeing the Hawaiian try to vanquish a legendary, two-division stalwart like Frankie Edgar would have been a thrill and a half, but naturally, Edgar was injured in training camp a month ago. This is MMA, and that is just the way the orbital bone crumbles. Everybody understands. Well, everybody except UFC President Dana White . So Holloway, who dispatched Aldo just six months ago, now faces the Brazilian again at the humble Little Caesars Arena in the Motor City. However, if we are forced to accept a consolation gift, we could do a lot worse. At the end of the day, this is still a young king like Holloway, just sniffing his prime, taking on one of the best to ever do it in Aldo, still just 31 years old. That says nothing of a fantastic heavyweight clash between Francis Ngannou and Alistair Overeem or the chance that Eddie Alvarez and Justin Gaethje could reenact Don Frye - Yoshihiro Takayama , so let us dispense with wisdom or lack thereof on UFC 218: UFC Featherweight Championship Max Holloway (18-3) vs.

Dana White: UFC champ Georges St-Pierre suffering from colitis, will be 'out for a minute'

UFC 218 ‘Holloway vs Aldo 2’ Play-by-Play, Results & Round-by-Round Scoring

Allen Crowder vs. Justin Willis Round 1 The southpaw Willis catches Crowder's first kick and sends a left hand down the center. Willis catches another kick, and this time the American Kickboxing Academy fighter feeds Crowder several hard left hands before releasing the leg. Willis catches Crowder rushing inside and grabs him in the Thai clinch to deliver a hard pair of knees. Backing Crowder up to the fence, Willis zaps the UFC newcomer with another hard left straight, and this one nearly buckles Crowder's legs. Willis walks him down, gets a collar tie and shoots an uppercut up the middle to Crowder's chin. Two minutes into the bout, Crowder's face is bright red from all the strikes he's been absorbing. Crowder gets rocked by yet another left hand and staggers backward to the fence. Willis misses with a clinch knee, then releases and absolutely torches Crowder with one final left to the jaw. Crowder collapses in a heap as referee Dan Miragliotta rushes in for the stoppage. The Official Result Justin Willis def. Allen Crowder via KO (Punches) R1 2:33

Donald Cerrone Plans Return to Lightweight With Less Demanding Fight Schedule

After the first three-fight losing streak of his professional career, Donald Cerrone is returning to 155 pounds. “Cowboy” revealed his plans, which also include a less frequent fight itinerary, during a recent appearance on "The Fighter and the Kid" podcast. Cerrone moved to welterweight in 2016 and emerged as a person of interest in the division during a four-fight winning streak that included triumphs over Patrick Cote , Rick Story and Matt Brown . However, the Jackson-Wink MMA standout has since dropped three in a row — two via KO/TKO — after never losing two straight in his first 40 MMA bouts. “I’m there five [more] years,” Cerrone said. “I’m going back to 155. I’m only 175, I’ve been waking up at 175 everyday so it’s like pffft, I’m fine. I’m more focused. At 170, I can just not train and f—k off. I put more into it at 155 so let’s do it, let’s have a couple more fights. I probably won’t take 20 a year anymore. I’m probably gonna take it down a little bit.” It remains to be seen if Cerrone, consistently one of the promotion’s most active competitors, will be able to maintain a scaled-back schedule.

Eddie Alvarez: 5 Defining Moments

Whenever Eddie Alvarez decides to walk away from mixed martial arts, he will do so as a historic figure in the lightweight division. The former Ultimate Fighting Championship and Bellator MMA titleholder’s path now leads him to one of the most anticipated fights of 2017. Alvarez will take on onetime World Series of Fighting champion Justin Gaethje in a delightful UFC 218 pairing this Saturday at Little Caesars Arena in Detroit. The three-round lightweight showcase crackles with potential. Alvarez has compiled a 3-2 record since arriving in the UFC a little more than three years ago. The 34-year-old Philadelphia native last competed at UFC 211 on May 13, when his encounter with American Top Team ’s Dustin Poirier resulted in a no-contest after Alvarez landed a pair of illegal knees. Nevertheless, he carries with him one of the sport’s most respected resumes. Alvarez boasts 22 finishes among his 28 professional victories and owns wins over Gilbert Melendez , Shinya Aoki , Roger Huerta , Tatsuya Kawajiri and Joachim Hansen , among others.

UFC 218 results: Abdul Razak Alhassan TKOs Sabah Homasi in first, despite wide protests of stoppage

“I am obviously happy to win, but how the fight ended is disappointing,” Alhassan said. “I understand why the referee stopped the fight, though, since he was watching from behind. From that angle, it looked like he was injured from my punch and the referee must look out for our safety. However, if I lost a fight in that manner I know how I would feel, so I feel for Homasi.”

At UFC 217. Georges St-Pierre swooped back into the UFC and did the unthinkable. Moving up in weight in his first fight in four years, he fought Michael Bisping and choked him out to become the UFC middleweight champion. Other than Dana White and St-Pierre repeatedly saying that he is “contractually obligated” to defend against Robert Whittaker next, his future has been up in the air and there have been rumblings about a move back to welterweight. However, it looks like St-Pierre won’t be fighting in any of those divisions anytime soon. Dana White announced that he has ulcerative colitis.
