MMA: Sanchez added to UFC card

Back in MMA’s formative days, Diego Sanchez was the face of the sport in Albuquerque. And the fiery Del Norte graduate remains immensely popular, not just in his hometown but worldwide. Friday, the UFC announced that Sanchez has been added to its June 7 “Fight Night” card scheduled for Tingley Coliseum. Sanchez (24-7) is matched against Englishman Ross Pearson (15-6) in a lightweight (155-pound) fight. This would be Sanchez’s first fight in Albuquerque since May 2004, when he defeated Ray Elbe by first-round submission on a King of the Cage card. Sanchez joins Jackson-Winkeljohn teammate John Dodson on the June 7 show. Dodson, a flyweight (125), is down for a rematch with John Moraga, whom he defeated by decision in 2010. The main event matches veteran lightweight Benson Henderson against Dagestan native Rustam Khabilov, who trains at Jackson-Winkeljohn. Sanchez will be seeking to rebound from what he acknowledges was one of the weakest performances of his career — a loss by unanimous decision to unbeaten Myles Jury in Dallas on March 15. Albuquerque MMA fans likely can expect “The Dream” to defend his home turf on June 7 with his characteristic fight-of-the-night energy.

UFC boss Dana White responds to GSP ACL tear

"I didn't think his hiatus was going to be that long," White said. "That's one of the risks you run when you get away from the sport like that. You have a small window as a professional athlete to make what you can. The guy gave up his belt, walked away from the sport, and now he's out for who knows how long ... last time he had this injury, it was 14 months."

UFC bantamweight champ Renan Barao faces T.J. Dillashaw in new UFC 173 headliner

Meanwhile, Dillashaw fought most recently in January, earning a convincing decision win against Mike Easton. A finalist on “The Ultimate Fighter 14,” Dillashaw, 28, fell short in his bid for the season’s tournament win in a TKO loss to John Dodson. Since that defeat, however, Dillashaw has gone 5-1 in six UFC contests. The loss came in a contentious split decision to Raphael Assuncao in a hard-fought October 2013 matchup.

GIF: Atrocious refereeing on display in TKO stoppage of EFC Africa 28 bout

Today's EFC Africa 28 saw all of its competitors wear  black armbands in honor of Guylain . One of the fights that took place was heavyweight match-up between Christophe Walravens (4-1) and Bernado Mikixi (5-5). What you're about to see is one of the single most inept and dangerous moments of MMA refereeing you'll ever witness. Mikixi is dropped with a lumbering right hand, and Walravens proceeds to hit him with about a dozen unanswered shots to the back of the head. For reasons unknown, referee Wiekus Swart had zero interest in stopping the fight until Mikixi was lying on his back as Walravens shot a bewildered look at the ref: ( GIF courtesy of GrabakaHitman )

I’ll be looking to fight at my own rhythm for all five rounds. My preference is to win by KO, but in MMA anything can happen. I just see my arm raised at the end.”

Cristiane 'Cyborg' Justino battles for Muay Thai title, but knows move to bantamweight is key

Cris "Cyborg" Justino is now talking openly about fighting at 135 pounds, with a time frame of the late summer or early fall set for her debut in the new division. This, of course, is to open the door to fight with UFC bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey . Making 135 isn't going to be easy for someone who said she was 165 pounds with four percent body fat before cutting this week. She wasn't expecting it to be a piece of cake cutting to 145 for her Muay Thai fight on Friday night with two-time champion Jorina Baars of The Netherlands. The bout, a five-rounder to create the women's welterweight (145 pound) title, airs live on AXS TV, from the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas. She's had issues making 145 in the past, including one fight being only able to get down to 151 before the California commission ordered her to stop cutting over health reasons. But she has made 145 for seven MMA fights and two kickboxing matches since 2009. Baars, 25, has had her own problems getting fights of late. She has a 35-0-3 record, but it's been three years since she's fought last. Baars has claimed nobody in Europe was willing to face her.

Team Mentality of Crouch, MMA Lab

That said, Crouch understands there are variables that can and will come into play. A fighter could suffer an injury or be coming off a tough fight where damage was taken, and when this happens, a lack of presence in the gym is valid in his eyes. Yet, once those injuries heal, he wants to see his fighters walking back through his doors because even though they may not be physically ready to roll on the mats or take sparring rounds, their support and experience are still important to the team.

Saffiedine Injured, Lawler steps in to fight Ellenberger at UFC 173

Lawler's opponent, Jake Ellenberger, is looking to bounce back from a unanimous decision loss to Rory MacDonald at UFC on Fox 8 . The uncharacteristically lackluster performance was compounded by injury woes, as Ellenberger was set to take on Saffiedine as the headliner of UFC Fight Night: Singapore, but was forced from the card with a hamstring injury. Now he's on the other side of the fence, with Saffiedine forced to withdraw. There's no word yet if another bout will be found for the UFC 172 card.

Study states that brain trauma occurs in 30 percent of MMA fights

Thirdly, (and this is simply more of a comparison to boxing) lets remind each other of what happens when you get knocked down in boxing. If you recieve a big hit, you fall down and the referee gives you 10 seconds to get back up. If a fighter gets backup, does that mean they have physically recovered? No! It means they were still capable of getting up. What happens then? They ride the rest of the fight risking another serious shot to the head and so on and so forth. If the fight ends with both fighters standing does that mean no one recieve any brain trauma? Of course not. On the flipside, in MMA, you get hit, you fall down, the fight either continues on the ground or the referee stops the fight because you’re not intelligently defending yourself. In other words, in MMA fighters don’t get the same chance to get back up after sustaining a concussing blow. Besides, the shots MMA fighters recieve while on the ground are usually nowhere near the type of haymakers the fighters recieve while standing.

Michael Bisping shows Ranger Up and Tim Kennedy how trash talk is really done

"The video things, they did it last time with Jorge Rivera, which I thanked them for because A) Rivera made a d--k out of himself, and B) it just gave me fuel for the fire. I'm an emotional person and I fight way better when I'm like that and they're trying to do it again.  This video that they did yesterday, I don't know if I'm missing the point, but I don't see what was so funny about it," Bisping said.  "They said 'oh we've got a video coming inside footage of Michael Bisping's camp where he has disparaging comments about Tim Kennedy'.  There was nothing about Tim Kennedy.  It was just a parody of me, trying to make fun of me, which didn't upset me in the slightest.

As MMA's sponsorship market dries up, crowdfunding doesn't look so bad

“I’ve been in this industry for almost a decade,” said Palmisciano, whose military-themed clothing line has sponsored fighters such as Tim Kennedy and Liz Carmouche. “Most MMA companies don’t live up to their agreements, don’t pay fighters on time or at all, or compensate their lack of payment with merchandise. I’ve had multiple fighters tell me that they only expect to receive 50-75 percent of the money they’re promised for fights. I’ve personally seen fighters get no money except what we paid them, despite having been promised thousands of additional dollars. These guys need money to train full-time, and having money absolutely beats not having money, regardless of who cuts the check.”
