UFC on FOX 27 Weigh-in Results: Jacare Souza vs. Derek Brunson Rematch Gets the Green Light | MMAWeekly.com

UFC on FOX 27 has flown somewhat under the radar until this week, largely overshadowed by the heavyweight blockbuster between Stipe Miocic and Francis Ngannou at UFC 220 in Boston.

Derek Brunson Explains Why His Fight with Jacare Souza Isn't Really a Rematch | MMAWeekly.com

“It’s a rematch in terms of we fought before. I wonder how Jacare’s mindset is, I don’t think he’s over here thinking this is going to be an easy fight for him. I think he’s very nervous, very worried,” Brunson told MMAWeekly. “He was asking for the fight in Brazil. I was always happy fighting him. This is an opportunity and I hope he thinks it’s going to go the same way.

Carbajal: Checkmate for the ‘Red King’

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. * * * When Rory MacDonald came to Bellator MMA from the Ultimate Fighting Championship , he did not take the route to an immediate title shot. Instead, he fought one of Bellator’s top-ranked welterweights to get a feel for his new home, and at Bellator 192 on Saturday, he proved it was the best path to a championship. Benson Henderson and Lorenz Larkin were given immediate title shots when they arrived. In fact, Henderson fought for the welterweight and lightweight belts in two of his first three appearances with the company, falling short on the judges’ scorecards on both occasions. MacDonald probably could have done the same, but it looks as if not doing so has paid off. After his dominant victory over Paul Daley in his promotional debut, MacDonald broke ground on 2018 by challenging and defeating Douglas Lima for the welterweight championship on the rebranded Paramount Network.

Lorenz Larkin: By The Numbers

When Bellator MMA signed Lorenz Larkin away from the Ultimate Fighting Championship in 2016, it was seen as something of a coup. However, his performance thus far has not yet coincided with the expectations that greeted his arrival. Larkin will attempt to get on track when he battles well-traveled World Extreme Cagefighting veteran Fernando Gonzalez in the Bellator 193 main event on Friday at the Pechanga Resort and Casino in Temecula, California. The Millennia MMA representative enters the headliner on a two-fight losing streak. Larkin last competed at Bellator 183 on Sept. 24, when he was victimized by former Cage Rage champion Paul Daley in a second-round knockout. As Larkin sets his sights on Gonzalez, here are some of the numbers that have come to define him: 1: Win over a UFC champion. Larkin defeated Robbie Lawler by unanimous decision under the Strikeforce banner on July 14, 2012. Lawler went on to capture the undisputed Ultimate Fighting Championship welterweight crown a little more than two years later.

Ex-Champ Liam McGeary to Face Vadim Nemkov at Bellator 194 on Feb. 16

Former light heavyweight champion Liam McGeary will meet Vadim Nemkov at Bellator 194 . A promotion official confirmed the pairing with Sherdog.com following an initial report from Tass.ru . Bellator 194 takes place at Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Conn., on Feb. 16 and is headlined by a heavyweight grand prix matchup pitting Matt Mitrione against Roy Nelson . The main card will air on the Paramount Network. McGeary has split a pair of bouts since relinquishing the light heavyweight title in a five-round decision to Phil Davis in November 2016. He began his 2017 campaign with a second-round technical knockout of Brett McDermott at Bellator 173 in February before falling to Linton Vassell via third-round submission at Bellator 179 in May. The 35-year-old Englishman kicked off his career with 11 consecutive triumphs. Nemkov was victorious in his first promotional foray, as he knocked out Philipe Lins in the first round at Bellator 182 on Aug. 25. The 25-year-old Russian prospect owns an 8-2 career mark, with all of his victories coming inside the distance.

Because the Nevada Athletic Commission was the regulatory body overseeing the fight in Las Vegas and has licensing jurisdiction over Oleksiejczuk, USADA will work to ensure that the Nevada Athletic Commission has the necessary information to determine its proper judgment of Oleksiejczuk’s potential anti-doping violation. Additional information will be provided at the appropriate time as the process moves forward.”

5 Things You Might Not Know About Derek Brunson

Vengeance may not be the only driving force behind Derek Brunson at the moment, but one has to imagine it occupies a prominent place in the heart of the Ultimate Fighting Championship middleweight contender. Brunson will tackle former Strikeforce champion and two-time Abu Dhabi Combat Club Submission Wrestling World Championships gold medalist Ronaldo Souza in the UFC on Fox 27 headliner this Saturday at the Spectrum Center in Charlotte, North Carolina. It serves as a rematch of their August 2012 encounter, which Souza ended with a volley of punches just 41 seconds into the first round. Brunson carries a two-fight winning streak into their second meeting, having blasted through Dan Kelly and Lyoto Machida in consecutive appearances. The 34-year-old has quietly pieced together a 9-3 record since joining the UFC roster a little more than five years ago -- a run of sustained success that has thrust him into the promotion’s top 10 rankings at 185 pounds. As Brunson eyes his pivotal showdown with Souza, here are five things you might not know about him: 1. Wrestling gave him a base from which to operate.
