Dana White on odds Brock Lesnar returns to UFC: 'Very, very, very good'

Yup. The onetime UFC heavyweight champion, who is back in the WWE now, might make another return to MMA. We most recently saw him at UFC 200 in July 2016. There, he beat Mark Hunt by unanimous decision … but then failed a post-fight drug test for clomiphene. He was suspended for a year and fined $250,000, which was 10 percent of his then-UFC record $2.5 million purse.

Debets: What’s the UFC Doing With Its Next Generation of Stars?

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. * * * Max Griffin landed 33 more strikes than Mike Perry at UFC on Fox 28 . He was 1-2 in the Ultimate Fighting Championship heading into the bout and was the second-biggest underdog on the card according to the oddsmakers. Griffin had been brought in to lose to “Platinum Perry,” preferably by the kind of vicious stoppage for which the Florida native has become notorious. When the fight started, however, it was apparent that Griffin didn’t get the memo. He controlled the distance well, as he took advantage of his five-inch reach advantage and cracked Perry with jabs and a variety of kicks, opening up a nasty cut on Perry’s forehead that would bleed copiously throughout the 15-minute contest. Apart from a desperate third-round rally from Perry, the fight was all Griffin; and when the scorecards were read, Perry was already walking towards the Octagon door.

Struve, who meets Andrei Arlovski (26-15 MMA, 15-9 UFC) on Saturday’s UFC 222 pay-per-view main card following prelims on FS1 and UFC Fight Pass from T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, said he understands why UFC brass would want to promote another Lesnar fight. The hulking heavyweight has been one of the biggest cash cows for the company each time he’s in the cage, but from Struve’s perspective, it’s not worth risking further damage to the integrity of the sport for a one-off PPV score.

Kevin Lee Would Favor Conor McGregor in Fight with Khabib Nurmagomedov

Outspoken lightweight Kevin Lee believes that if Conor McGregor and Khabib Nurmagomedov were to ever fight inside the Octagon, it would be the Irishman, not the Russian raising his hand. Although for that fight to happen in the near future, Nurmagomedov will have to get past one of the most dangerous men in the division in Ultimate Fighting Championship interim lightweight ace in Tony Ferguson at UFC 223 on April 7. Lee fought Ferguson at UFC 216 back in October last year and was outclassed, eventually succumbing to a triangle choke in the third round. Lee recently spoke to MMA NYTT on the matchup and why he believes that “The Notorious” would find success against “The Eagle.” “Yeah, I think Conor would get him, and it would blow people’s minds, and it would blow him out of proportion, they would think Conor’s just some fu--ing magical god or some whatever, because people are stupid anyway. But, in the real of what it is, Khabib is very hittable. He has a lot of holes in his game, and he doesn’t seem to be patching those holes.

Tito Ortiz comfortable in retirement after Dana White put 'kibosh' on Chuck Liddell trilogy

“She didn’t blink,” Ortiz said. “It goes from one camp to another. She took two, maybe three weeks off. And for her when she takes time off, it’s a lot better for her body because she recovers more. When it came to her training, we had some of the top guys in the world and guys that are wrestlers that couldn’t take her down. She was defending and getting the takedowns herself. She was sparring and on target. This girl she’s competing against, she’s super tough. She comes from a great camp being with (Jackson-Wink MMA). They know how to prepare for champions, and hopefully they can be prepared for Cris, because Cris is for real.”

Justin Buchholz Officially Departs From Team Alpha Male

The signs have been there for a while but now it is official, Justin Buchholz , one of the long-standing head coaches from Team Alpha Male has officially left the Sacramento Gym. He follows other high-profile coaches out the door, including Dwayne Ludwig and Martin Kampmann . The news comes in the wake of accusations from Buccholz back in November 2017, when he claimed that he was ousted as one of the head coaches and put in a more muay Thai-focussed role which didn’t sit well with him. TAM founder Uriah Faber denied these claims at the time on the Slip ‘n Dip podcast when questioned about Buchholz’s comments. “I think Justin is maybe having a little trouble with having more guys in on practice, etc. It was kinda his idea for him to step into more of a kickboxing role. I’d love for him to be as a head coach. There’s a lot of guys that he will be a lead coach for and there’s a lot of guys that won’t have him as a lead coach. So it’s not necessarily like a shaking up, everything is pretty much the same.” Now it seems Buchholz has had enough and will be pursuing other opportunities.

Bellator 195's Leandro Higo confident he'll beat champ Darrion Caldwell, no thanks to 'MMA math'

In any case, it’s not like the 29-year-old “The Ultimate Fighter: Brazil” alum really needs extra reasons to feel confident. A pro MMA fighter since 2006, Higo hasn’t just been given this type of shot – he’s earned it. And, if it goes according to plan, he’ll get a prestigious symbol of a decade’s worth of effort.

Alexey Oleynik, UFC Heavyweight: 'School shooting reminds me I'm a father first' | MMAWeekly.com

I read the text again just to make sure it was correct — it was. As the father of five kids, ages 2 to 16, I was consumed by thoughts of death and violence. My daughter is a student at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla., and was texting me from the mass shooting that would claim 17 lives and injure many more. Thankfully, Polina survived and was uninjured, but for several hours I struggled to retain the composure I have during fights. Her text reminded me that I am a father first, and a fighter second.

Frankie Edgar Needs His 'Spidey Senses' on Full Alert to Deal with Brian Ortega | MMAWeekly.com

“Luckily, I come from an era where we did see a lot of these specialists. I think Ortega is definitely his own type of fighter, but I’ve fought guys similar to him,” Edgar said. “I’ve fought guys who are very tricky on the ground. We just have to work all the danger points and make sure we don’t give him any opportunities to capitalize on. But I’ve been in there with Hermes Franca, B.J. Penn, Charles Oliveira, those guys all have very dangerous jiu-jitsu, so this is kind of the same thing.

Referee Rob Hinds Discusses Conclusion of Jeremy Stephens-Josh Emmett

It has been replayed countless times, from different angles and at different speeds, yet it’s still dividing fight fans whether referee Dan Miragliotta should have intervened during the ending sequence between Jeremy Stephens and Josh Emmett at UFC on Fox 28 . Referee Rob Hinds talked with MMA Fighting about the decision and how difficult it is for the referee given how quickly everything happens. “This is absolutely the toughest part about what we do,” Hinds told MMA Fighting. “Within seconds we have to decide was that legal, was that illegal? Do I do something, do I not do something? Do I verbally warn, do I not? So, within that split, split second, there’s several things that can happen.” Miragliotta did not rule it an illegal knee and Stephens continued the beatdown on his way to a knockout. The replays show the knee of Jeremy Stephens connecting to the back of Emmett’s head although on the way down from the initial strike. “If it was glancing or not, it’s still illegal,” said Hinds, who is a licensed referee certification trainer.
