Sage Northcutt will compete in his home state when he faces Thibault Gouti at UFC Fight Night 126 in Austin. The Las Vegas-based promotion confirmed the lightweight pairing on Thursday.

Rafael dos Anjos Manhandles Robbie Lawler in One-Sided UFC on Fox 26...

Sherdog’s Official Mixed Martial Arts Rankings - A Former King Conquering Again

Rafael dos Anjos was once the best lightweight in the world. He’s not the greatest welterweight, at least not yet, but No. 2 is still awfully impressive. Since back-to-back losses to Eddie Alvarez and Tony Ferguson oriented him towards 170 pounds, dos Anjos has been increasingly impressive. After one-sided wins over Tarec Saffiedine and Neil Magny , the former UFC lightweight champion headlined UFC on Fox 26 on Dec. 16 in Winnipeg, Manitoba, dominating former welterweight ruler Robbie Lawler for 25 full minutes. Whether he gets the next crack at champion Tyron Woodley remains to be seen, but for now, he takes Lawler’s spot in our rankings, rising from sixth to second. The UFC’s second trip to Winnipeg also gives us a new entrant at 170 pounds as well. Courtesy of his exciting decision win over Mike Perry , Santiago Ponzinibbio makes the jump from the contenders list to the ninth spot in our rankings. There’s a more shocking No. 9 in this update courtesy of UFC on Fox 26, though. Stepping in for Jose Aldo , Team Alpha Male seized the opportunity as a late replacement against former UFC title challenger Ricardo Lamas and blew “The Bully” away in the first round to claim his rankings spot.

Bermudez vs. Fili, Bektic vs. Castro Set for UFC on Fox 27 in Charlotte

A pair of featherweight matchups have been booked for UFC on Fox 27 , as Dennis Bermudez will square off against Andre Fili , and Mirsad Bektic will lock horns with Godofredo Castro . The bouts were reported by the Charlotte Observer on Wednesday, as was a welterweight tilt pitting Niko Price against George Sullivan . UFC on Fox 27 takes place at the Spectrum Center in Charlotte, N.C., on Jan. 27 and is headlined by a middleweight rematch between Ronaldo Souza and Derek Brunson . Bermudez went 0-2 during his 2017 campaign, falling to Darren Elkins via split decision at UFC on Fox 25 and losing to Chan Sung Jung via first-round knockout at UFC Fight Night 104. Fili has alternated wins and losses throughout his nine-bout promotional tenure and is coming off a unanimous verdict over Artem Lobov at UFC Fight Night 118 on Oct. 21. Bektic suffered the first defeat of his professional career at UFC 209, when Darren Elkins rallied for a third-round knockout victory over the American Top Team prospect. Castro is 5-5 in the Octagon, including a decision loss to Shane Burgos in his last outing at UFC on Fox 25.

The Hit List: Undefeated Fighters on the UFC

Injuries, inactivity and issues with the scale have thus far proven to be lightweight contender Khabib Nurmagomedov ’s greatest obstacles. Front and center in an exclusive group as one of 33 undefeated fighters on the Ultimate Fighting Championship roster with at least one victory inside the Octagon, Nurmagomedov will compete for the first time in more than a year when he faces former Ring of Combat champion Edson Barboza in the UFC 219 co-main event on Dec. 30 at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. There, the American Kickboxing Academy representative puts his perfect 24-0 record on the line in hopes of positioning himself as a challenger for either undisputed champion Conor McGregor or interim titleholder Tony Ferguson .

Conor McGregor has undoubtedly turned the sport on it’s head and it has been a most wonderful ride “while visions of sugar plums danced in OUR heads.”  It has been a magical journey as Conor has taken us with him as he leaps to other dimensions. I mean divisions. No dimensions is correct, as he fought Diaz and then back to another division, as he became a two division titleholder, doing what others only dream of. He somehow talked himself into a boxing match with arguably the greatest boxer in the world, with many other questions to be answered and a rave around the water cooler. Everyone was talking about the unspeakable.

Paddy Pimblett vs. Alexis Savvidis, Two Title Fights Set for Cage Warriors 90 in Liverpool

A prospect and a pair of title fights will be the feature attractions when Cage Warriors Fighting Championship travels to Liverpool, England, on Feb. 24. The promotion announced on Friday that former featherweight champion Paddy Pimblett will move up to 155 pounds to face Alexis Savvidis . Meanwhile, middleweight champion Lee Chadwick will defend his middleweight crown against as as-yet-to-be determined opponent, and Molly McCann will vie for the inaugural women’s flyweight belt, also against a currently unknown foe. Cage Warriors 90 takes place at Echo Arena and will stream in its entirety on UFC Fight Pass. Pimblett saw a nine-fight winning streak come to an end in his most recent outing when he fell to Nad Narimani in a five-round verdict at CWFC 82 on April 1. The 22-year-old Liverpool native is 13-2 with nine victories coming inside the distance. The 22-year-old Savvidis is a native of Greece who owns a 16-6-1 professional mark. Eight of his triumphs have come via submission and three via KO/TKO. “This is a pivotal fight for me, the most important fight of my life and more than any title fight.

I agree that fighter pay in MMA is a problem in a lot of ways. But it’s tough to make the argument that fans just don’t appreciate the nuances of your strategy if you’re simultaneously claiming that you’re paid too poorly to take the risks those fans want to see. Which is it? Are you doing great stuff that goes unappreciated by the idiots in the crowd? Or are you holding back because the money isn’t good enough?

Michael Bisping: Georges St. Pierre Vacating Title ‘Looks Like a Bit of a Bitch Move’

Michael Bisping can see the positives and the negatives of Georges St. Pierre ’s decision to vacate the UFC middleweight title. “I’m gonna be brutally honest here, it’s a double-edged sword,” Bisping said on his ”Believe You Me” podcast . “It’s a good thing and a bad thing. By the way, Dana White threw me under the bus when he first found out. He wasn’t happy with Georges and he said, ‘Yeah, well he cherry-picked Bisping.’ That doesn’t do me any favors. He didn’t cherry-pick me, but I did say that. I said Georges wanted to fight me because he thought I was an easy fight and this and that, and he got the win, and then he vacated the belt. Now he vacated the belt because apparently he had to go to the hospital after our fight and he thought he was gonna be paralyzed and he had a bad neck and all this type of stuff. I don’t know. He just doesn’t fancy doing it again. “In one respect, it’s good for me because -- as an MMA fighter, as a boxer, whatever it is -- if somebody beats you, you never want them to lose again because if they get beat, then the person that beat them, it has a negative impact on you.
