Another weekend has arrived and in this era of mixed martial arts, you know what that means, fight fans: another Ultimate Fighting Championship card lacking in depth and intrigue. Fortunately, the upper third of the UFC Fight Night 126 lineup is filled with well-made fights. The rest? Well, no one will blame you for relying on the DVR or skipping them entirely.

5 Things You Might Not Know About Sage Northcutt

Sage Northcutt is one of the Ultimate Fighting Championship ’s young household names and is poised for a lengthy career inside the Octagon. At just 21, Northcutt already has fought six times under the brightest lights and will fight for the seventh time this weekend when he faces Thibault Gouti at UFC Fight Night 126 . Northcutt’s accomplishments in karate and his early UFC start are well known. However, ahead of Feb. 18’s fight between Northcutt and Gouti we took a look at five lesser known Northcutt facts. 1. Four catchweight bouts at 165 pounds. Northcutt fought the majority of his pre-UFC contests at an unorthodox weight. During his Legacy Fighting Championship career, Northcutt fought all four of his bouts at 165 pounds. Northcutt won all four on the way to his eventual major league debut. 2. 0-2 UFC welterweight record; undefeated at lightweight. With his experience fighting above 155 in Legacy FC, Northcutt has attempted to make the jump to welterweight on two occasions so far in his UFC career to disappointing results. Northcutt lost his first welterweight appearance to Bryan Barberena via arm triangle choke at UFC on Fox 18.

Joe Rogan Hopes to Help Broker a Deal that Brings Undefeated Ben Askren to the UFC

Fans have been pleading with Ultimate Fighting Championship President Dana White for years to sign former Bellator MMA and One Championship welterweight ace Ben Askren to the Octagon. Askren (18-0, 1 NC) is undefeated in his professional career and last week spoke to MMA Junkie Radio about what it would it would take for him to come out of retirement. “My main motivation is to prove I’m No. 1 in the world,” Askren stated. “I think it will happen, at the Bell Centre (in Montreal). Me vs. ‘GSP,’ probably somewhere in late 2019. … I don’t need to make any more money from fighting, and there’s only one thing left to prove. I’ve been No. 1 for the past five years, and I’ve unfortunately never had the chance to prove that fight. It’s the one thing that interests me.” While Askren is technically retired, a super fight against arguably the best welterweight of all time in Georges St. Pierre could be a reality. UFC commentator and long-time fight lover Joe Rogan recently spoke about luring Askren into the UFC and even offered help in brokering a deal.

Heather Hardy, Mike Mazzulli explain their sides of odd weigh-in situation at Bellator 194

The circumstances all seemed to point to Hardy being a fraction over but then not getting the opportunity to drop the extra quarter-pound to avoid the fine. She weighed in wearing a bikini but didn’t strip down to weigh in behind a towel. And despite fighters being told ahead of the official weigh-ins that they’d have an additional two hours to cut weight, Hardy left the scale, expressed what appeared to be relief to her corner that she made weight, and that seemed to be the end of the story.

Two Russian Fighters Suspended by USADA for UFC Anti-Doping Violation | MMAWeekly.com

Magomedov’s and Tukhugov’s cases were consolidated, allowing for a single presentation of the athletes’ defenses to the independent arbitrator. During a multi-day hearing, the athletes presented testimony and submitted evidence in an attempt to support their supplement contamination claims and request for a reduced period of ineligibility. Nevertheless, after two days of testimony, USADA informed Magomedov and Tukhugov that it was still unwilling to consider a reduced sanction because it did not believe supplement contamination was a valid explanation for their positive tests. Thereafter, and before the conclusion of the hearing, USADA and the athletes reached an agreement to resolve the case, with Magomedov and Tukhugov each accepting a two-year period of ineligibility and agreeing to contribute a total of $10,000 toward the costs of the arbitration proceedings.
