USADA notifies Ben Rothwell of potential anti-doping violation, putting UFC 211 status in jeopardy

Rothwell, who’d been granted a therapeutic-use exemption for testosterone prior to the bout, was issued an administrative warning by the Wisconsin Department of Safety and Professional Services, but the UFC decided to issue its own punishment. He issued a statement following the suspension, claiming he needed testosterone replacement therapy to treat hypogonadism after a car crash in 1999 that left him with “severe head trauma and in a coma.”

The Bottom Line: Squandered Opportunity

Editor’s note: The views and opinions expressed below are those of the author and do not necessarily reflect the views of, its affiliates and sponsors or its parent company, Evolve Media. * * * Title opportunities can be precious commodities in the Ultimate Fighting Championship . Michael Bisping chased his title shot for a decade, and it looked like he was never going to get it. When he did, he capitalized in grand fashion with a shocking upset win over Luke Rockhold . Now, he’s going to receive the biggest paycheck of his career by far when he welcomes Georges St. Pierre back to the Octagon. Matt Serra wasn’t thought to be a top contender at welterweight or much of a threat to St. Pierre, but Serra earned his chance on “The Ultimate Fighter” and it resulted in a spectacular title victory. Serra will likely have fans coming up to congratulate him for that moment every week for the rest of his life. Over the last six months, Stephen Thompson has had 50 minutes in that Octagon to capture championship gold.

This Month’s MMA Birthdays: ‘Kid’ Yamamoto Turns 40

He was for a brief time one of the best pound-for-pound fighters in the sport, a nearly untouchable offensive wunderkind who set the Far East ablaze with his transcendent talents. Norifumi Yamamoto turns 40 on March 15. Yamamoto was an accomplished amateur wrestler before turning his focus to mixed martial arts in 2001. “Kid” soon surfaced as one of Japan’s top exports, as he started his career 17-1 and recorded wins over Genki Sudo , Caol Uno , Jeff Curran , Jadamba Narantungalag, Bibiano Fernandes and Rani Yahya . Yamamoto not only beat people but embarrassed them. Known for his pathological aggression, blinding speed and crushing power, the Krazy Bee rep registered 12 of his first 17 victories by knockout; his four-second KO on Kazuyuki Miyata at K-1 Hero’s 5 on May 3, 2006 remains one of the quickest finishes in MMA history. A longtime favorite of hardcore fight fans, Yamamoto won tournaments in Shooto and K-1 Hero’s in his prime. Father Time has not been kind to “Kid” -- he has gone 1-5 with one no-contest across his past seven appearances -- but no one will forget how dynamic he was at his peak.

Sherdog’s Official Mixed Martial Arts Rankings - Thrones Are Safe, Back Doors Are Open

Tyron Woodley put at least a temporary rest to his business with rival Stephen Thompson at UFC 209 on March 4. It was far from an appealing Ultimate Fighting Championship title bout; in fact, it may have been one of the worst in the history of the promotion. Nonetheless, after the welterweights battled to a majority draw at UFC 205 in November, “The Chosen One” bounced back in Las Vegas and earned a razor-thin majority decision over Thompson for his second successful title defense, even if it came in a dreadful bout. Woodley defended his throne, but other divisional No. 1 fighters are safe for other reasons. Julia Budd dominated women’s MMA pioneer Marloes Coenen on March 3, eventually stopping the slick-grappling Dutchwoman in the fourth round of their Bellator 174 main event. The win not only sent the 35-year-old Coenen into retirement but brought Budd the inaugural Bellator MMA women’s featherweight championship. Even with her title capture and eighth straight victory, Budd’s resume still cannot top longtime divisional queen “Cyborg” Cristiane Justino .

10 March Tussles Worth Watching

In an effort to bring more attention to the global stage of mixed martial arts, this list does not focus on major North American-based promotions such as the Ultimate Fighting Championship, Bellator MMA and the World Series of Fighting. *** The world’s foremost women’s atomweight has decided to hunt bigger game. The reigning Invicta Fighting Championships titleholder at 105 pounds, Ayaka Hamasaki will move to the strawweight division to confront Livia Renata Souza in the Invicta 22 co-headliner on March 25 at the Scottish Rite Temple in Kansas City, Missouri. Their three-round clash helps to anchor an event that will stream in its entirety to UFC Fight Pass. Hamasaki, 34, has rattled off five consecutive victories since she succumbed to punches from Claudia Gadelha a little less than four years ago. It remains the only blemish on her otherwise pristine resume. Hamasaki captured the Invicta atomweight championship in a split decision over Herica Tiburcio in July 2015 and has successfully defended it twice, submitting Amber Brown with a third-round armbar before forcing a second-round doctor stoppage against Jinh Yu Frey .

Before Katniss: 25 Of The Most Kick-Ass Movie Heroines Ever

It should probably be noted that we’ve gone for characters and performances that feel closer to Lawrence’s in “The Hunger Games,” sticking mostly to action and sci-fi genres, which means that the picks are predominantly (but not exclusively) from Hollywood studio movies, and in the English language —film noir femme fatales, for instance, didn’t quite fit our criteria, while the thriving national action cinemas of certain foreign regions like Asia could populate their own list several times over. Even within those limitations, there were plenty to choose from and plenty more where they came from: take a look at our picks below, and add your own in the comments. Just remember to keep it civil —we’ve spent a couple of days now watching these amazing women kick, punch, shoot, stab, slice and crush their way through their adversaries, so we’re in no mood to be trifled with.

Opinion: The Other Side of Anything Can Happen

Editor’s note: The views and opinions expressed below are those of the author and do not necessarily reflect the views of, its affiliates and sponsors or its parent company, Evolve Media. * * * Every time I watch an Ultimate Fighting Championship event, I invariably see the same UFC Fight Pass commercial ; and every time I see it, I’m struck its stupidity. You’ve probably seen it, too, but in case you can’t view the link, it’s the one that starts by asking “What’s your problem? Bored?” before imploring you to “Stop whining and watch a fight.” The sound and image of a crying baby briefly pops up, because nothing sells a product better than “You’re not a baby, are you?” The slogan of this ad is “Fighting solves everything.” Car broke down? Fired from your job? The remorse you’re feeling from pounding that Taco Bell Party Pack in a single sitting? Don’t worry about any of that. Just watch some fights and all will be well. Aside from the cringe-worthy tropes of being a dude/man and the laziness of its angle, there’s something ingenious about the ad, a common motif immediately recognizable to all fight fans that the advertisers likely didn’t realize at the time but is nonetheless present.

“What would’ve been different was if he would’ve called Dr. Davidson or Brianna, the two who handle the medical stuff for the UFC, they would have brought him right to the hospital. Apparently he was treated horribly at Sunrise Hospital, shocker. Here in Vegas that’s no shock, but he should have gone to Valley Hospital. He should have been with Doc D. Doc D would have got him right in. They would have checked his vitals and see where he was. But when you walk into just some random hospital here in Las Vegas, and they see the guy and they tell him he’s cutting weight, they just start filling him full of fluids. I mean that is immediately what they do. They bring you in. They stick in the IV.

Glory 39 Brussels, SuperFight Series Undercard Complete with Several Changes

Glory, the world’s leading kickboxing promotion, announced Tuesday afternoon that both the Glory 39: Brussels main card and SuperFight Series undercard have been finalized. Glory 39 will take place at Forest National in Belgium on March 25 and newly-crowned welterweight champion Cedric Doumbe will make the first defense of his title in the main event. Doumbe (65-4-1, 39 KOs) scored a sizable upset at Glory: Collision in December by ending then-champ Nieky Holzken’s four-year unbeaten streak. He’ll have a tall order ahead of him when he takes on old rival Yoann Kongolo (64-8, 46 KOs), a man he has lost to twice. Kongolo, who hails from Switzerland, edged the champ via decision at both Glory 22 in 2015 and Jurafight in 2014. Former Glory featherweight champ Serhiy Adamchuk (33-7, 16 KOs) leads a quartet of 145-pounders in a the one-night contender tournament against Nafi Bilalovski, who replaces Anvar Boynazarov. The two will collide in the opening round of the tourney while the other side of the bracket will see Thailand’s Petchpanomrung Kiatmookao (152-34-2, 25 KOs) taking on Alexei Ulyanov (21-2-1, 7 KOs) of Russia.

Jorge Masvidal Talks Demian Maia with TMZ Sports: ‘I'ma F--- Him Up, Man’

Ultimate Fighting Championship welterweight contender Jorge Masvidal is continuing to soak up his newfound time in the spotlight. In a video posted by TMZ Sports on Monday , “Gamebred” is encountered in true TMZ fashion by a cameraman who compliments Masvidal on his January blowout stoppage of “Cowboy” Donald Cerrone , before asking Masvidal's thoughts on Demian Maia , who Masvidal faces on May 13 at UFC 211 in Dallas. “I'ma f--- him up, man. Those are my thoughts,” Masvidal muses while removing his sunglasses in melodramatic fashion. “I'm not a classic striker, man, you don't know nothing about me,” Masvidal responds to the suggestion his bout with Maia was a “classic striker versus grappler match-up.” “I can wrestle my ass off, I ain't got nothing to worry about. I'm betting the house on this. I been calling Dana to see if he'll take a $200K bet, but he hasn't taken it yet.” The 32-year-old American Top Team product has rebounded from a pair of contentious split decision losses to Benson Henderson and Lorenz Larkin by going on a three-fight winning streak.

Beating the Odds: UFC 209

The fight served as a window into one man’s soul. Darren Elkins withstood a horrific beating for the better part of 10 minutes before rallying to stop American Top Team prospect Mirsad Bektic with third-round punches at UFC 209 “Woodley vs. Thompson 2” on Saturday at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. A whopping +520 underdog according to, Elkins brought it to a dramatic close 3:19 into Round 3. Bektic (-759) assaulted the Team Alpha Male rep throughout the first round, as the beating he administered became increasingly uncomfortable to watch. He executed a takedown, split open Elkins with an elbow strike above the eyebrow and mauled the Indiana native with stomach-churning ground-and-pound. Per FightMetric , Bektic outlanded his counterpart by a 102-6 margin in Round 1. Think Leonardo DiCaprio versus the grizzly bear in “The Revenant.” Even as his blood puddled and stained the canvas red, Elkins fought on. He pushed Bektic beyond the second round and into a third, where fortune smiled upon his fortitude.

Tony Ferguson says he received less than half his contracted UFC 209 show money

The official stressed the fighter’s contracted compensation for Nurmagomedov was linked to the interim title fight, and the promotion still paid him despite having no obligation to do so under his bout agreement. A public records request for that agreement is pending with the Nevada State Athletic Commission, which regulated UFC 209 at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. However, per the commission’s statutes, a promotion isn’t required to compensate a fighter when a bout is canceled due to an opponent’s weight miss.
