The Niagara Falls, New York, native won Season 2 of “The Ultimate Fighter” reality series, served as a cornerstone for two world-class training camps, captured Ultimate Fighting Championship gold as a light heavyweight and engaged in two of the modern era’s most heated rivalries.

He had wrestled collegiately at Michigan State University and was off to a 5-0 start in MMA, but at 5-foot-10, he was undersized for the heavyweight division and considered a longshot at best.

If he never fought in the UFC, how he become like this?  Now he has name, now he talk about he can fight without the UFC in boxing. For me this is disrespect to UFC.

Maybe even someone like Thompson, provided he can put the lessons of the first fight to use in the second.

Sherdog Prospect Watch: Aspen Ladd

They exist in an ever evolving sport, which is why Aspen Ladd and her coaches compare her skills to a Lego Ferrari with a never-ending amount of pieces. Ladd has been adding to her tool kit since she started her formal training at age 14. The undefeated women’s bantamweight prospect first walked into an MMA gym in hopes of finding a way to stay in shape. Little did she know that she would be hooked soon after. “Within a week, I fell in love with the sport; the competition is what got me hooked to it,” Ladd told “You always have something new to learn, and it always keeps you on your toes.” Ladd has enjoyed the luxury of training at the same gym since she started her MMA journey: MMA Gold in El Dorado Hills, California. She stood out from her peers from the beginning. “The first time I saw Aspen in there, she was not training MMA,” said longtime coach Jim West. “She was in there with her brother, and they were just rolling around on the mats.” He remembers turning to one of his colleagues and saying, “That girl is going to make it.

Stephen Thompson sick of Mayweather-McGregor talk |

While several members of the boxing community have stated that it’s disrespectful to boxing to put McGregor, a fighter with no professional boxing experience, in talks of a fight with Floyd Mayweather, Thompson was asked if he thought the matchup was disrespectful to the sport of MMA, to which he stated:

Demian Maia vs. Jorge Masvidal set for UFC 211 in Dallas

Maia, who challenged unsuccessfully for the middleweight belt in 2010, has found a new life at welterweight, where the 39-year-old Brazilian grappler had won his past six fights. Three of his past four victories – over notables Neil Magny, Matt Brown and Carlos Condit – have come via submission. After the Condit victory, which earned him his seventh career UFC fight-night bonus, Maia was seemingly promised a title shot. Instead, champ Tyron Woodley rematches Stephen Thompson in Saturday’s UFC 209 headliner).

Stephen Thompson does not agree with Tyron Woodley's claims of poor treatment |

“I just don’t see where he is coming from with how he is treated bad. I know the whole race thing came up but my job is not to sit here and talk about that part. You know I am just focused on the fight to be honest with you. I know I have to step foot in the octagon with that guy (Woodley). If he is focused on other things, then that is going to be his downfall. I just hope that he is focused on the fight and not everything else that goes along with it you know? Because I want to fight the best Tyron Woodley. That is why I am in the game. To fight the best of the best. So yea I just hope his mind is focused on the fight and not all these other things surrounding it.”

Former UFC Bantamweight Champion Cruz Joins Rogan and Anik to Call UFC 209: WOODLEY VS. THOMPSON 2

In addition, retired UFC contenders Kenny Florian (@KennyFlorian) and Brian Stann (@BrianStann) work as desk analysts with host Karyn Bryant (@KarynBryant) for the FS1 UFC 209 WEIGH-IN, PREFIGHT and POSTFIGHT SHOWS from FOX Sports’ Los Angeles studios. Reporter Megan Olivi (@MeganOlivi) interviews fighters on-site in Las Vegas. Following their instant classic last November, UFC welterweight champion Tyron Woodley (16-3-1) and No. 1 contender Stephen “Wonderboy” Thompson (13-1-1) meet again to settle the score in the main event of UFC 209. In their first encounter, Woodley and Thompson engaged in a memorable Fight of the Night battle that left fans at Madison Square Garden on their feet and judges unable to determine a winner. After calling for a rematch, former kickboxing star Thompson gets his wish as he puts his eight-fight unbeaten streak on the line against a champion hungry to close this chapter of his career in victorious fashion. Plus, the interim lightweight title is up for grabs when 24-0 Khabib Nurmagomedov squares off with surging former The Ultimate Fighter winner Tony Ferguson, who has won nine straight bouts in his quest for 155-pound gold.
