Holly Holm, Megan Anderson to Meet in Featherweight Tilt at UFC 225

A featherweight clash with title implications will go down in the Windy City when Holly Holm squares off against Megan Anderson at UFC 225 . The Chicago Tribune first reported the matchup on Wednesday. UFC 225 takes place at the United Center in Chicago on June 9 and is headlined by a middleweight title tilt between Robert Whittaker and Yoel Romero . In the co-main event, Rafael dos Anjos and Colby Covington will lock horns for the interim welterweight crown. Holm is coming off a loss to Cristiane Justino in a featherweight title bout in the UFC 219 headliner. The Jackson-Wink MMA product was able to go the full five rounds against “Cyborg” in defeat, but didn’t truly threaten the Brazilian knockout artist. The 36-year-old New Mexican has lost four of her last five bouts. Anderson, the former Invicta FC 145-pound titlist, was supposed to face Justino for the vacant featherweight strap in at UFC 214 in July but had to withdraw from the contest due to personal issues. The 28-year-old Australia native owns an 8-2 career mark and has won her last four fights in a row.

Here's #UFCGlendale headliner @Justin_Gaethje working out ahead of his bout with @DustinPoirier . However, he's got an additional lightweight (a real 'turd,' he said) on his mind. More on that simmering beef here:

Carlos Condit: By The Numbers

Carlos Condit has accomplished much in his 15-plus years as a professional mixed martial artist, but “The Natural Born Killer” has fallen on hard times of late. The former World Extreme Cagefighting champion will carry a career-worst three-fight losing streak into his battle with Alex Oliveira in the UFC on Fox 29 co-main event this Saturday at Gila River Arena in Glendale, Arizona. Condit has become something of an afterthought in the Ultimate Fighting Championship ’s welterweight division following consecutive defeats to Robbie Lawler , Demian Maia and Neil Magny . Even so, the Jackson-Wink MMA standout wields quite a resume, with wins over Nick Diaz , Thiago Alves , Rory MacDonald , Jake Ellenberger and Dong Hyun Kim . As Condit sets his sights on Oliveira, here are some of the numbers that have come to define him: 1: Loss by knockout or technical knockout. It was the result of a knee injury suffered against Tyron Woodley at UFC 171 on March 15, 2014. 4: Men other than Condit who have held the WEC welterweight crown.

Combate Americas ‘Combate Estrellas 1’ Gets New Main Event for Friday’s Card in Los Angeles

There have been several changes to Friday’s Combate Americas card, including a revision to the bantamweight main event. Marc Gomez , who was supposed to face John Castaneda in the “Combate Estrellas 1” headliner, was declared ineligible to compete when a pre-fight medical exam revealed a detached retina. As a result, Mexico native Jose Alday will step in for Gomez against Castaneda. Meanwhile, the mixed martial arts debut of five-division boxing world champion Amanda Serrano will come against a new foe in the co-main event. Serrano’s original opponent, Erendira Ordonez was unable to secure a work visa for the fight, so she will be replaced by Corina Herrera . Finally, Rudy Morales will step in for the injured Pablo Sabori and face Jose Estrada in the evening’s first televised main card bout. “Combate Estrellas 1” will be televised on Univision (12 a.m. ET/12 a.m. PT) and Univision Deportes (12 a.m. ET/9 p.m. PT). The event marks the first live MMA broadcast on Univision Deportes.

Sherdog’s Official Mixed Martial Arts Rankings - The Eagle Has Landed

Khabib Nurmagomedov stayed focused on the prize during one of the most chaotic weeks in Ultimate Fighting Championship history, and that discipline resulted in a massive payoff. Nurmagomedov captured the undisputed lightweight championship with a unanimous decision over Serra Longo Fight Team representative Al Iaquinta in the UFC 223 headliner on April 7 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. His win -- which was given the seal of approval with 50-44, 50-43 and 50-43 scores from the judges -- closed the book on an event that was marred by Conor McGregor ’s dolly attack on a charter bus on media day. The incident resulted in injuries to Michael Chiesa and Ray Borg , prompting multiple fight cancellations and leading to McGregor’s arrest. The undefeated Nurmagomedov now rules the 155-pound weight class with a perfect 26-0 record. “The Eagle” has plenty of worthy challengers available to him, including McGregor and Tony Ferguson . Nurmagomedov has yet to lose a round in the UFC, a run of dominance that spans 10 appearances.

Are Trump's travels imposing historic costs on taxpayers?

Following news that President Donald Trump’s packed travel schedule and large family have depleted the Secret Service’s annual funds, conservative pundit David Frum declared the costs incurred by the president unprecedented.

Khabib Nurmagomedov 'a little bit scared' by UFC title fame: 'I don't want to change'

“I’m a little bit worried about this belt. Sometime you think, ‘You’re UFC champion (and) a lot of stuff.’ But I’m a little bit scared about this. I don’t want to change. I want to be same Khabib, like, before belt and after the belt. This is not about me. This is about all people around me.”

Mackenzie Dern’s Father Will Watch Her Compete in MMA for First Time at UFC 224

Following a successful Octagon debut at UFC 222, grappling standout Mackenzie Dern immediately asked for an opportunity to compete at the Las Vegas-based promotion’s upcoming pay-per-view event in Rio de Janeiro. Dern’s wish was granted, as she will face Amanda Bobby Cooper at the Jeunesse Arena in Rio de Janeiro on May 12. One of the biggest incentives for Dern to compete at UFC 224, she recently told Portal do Vale Tudo , is it will be the first time her father, Wellington “Megaton” Dias, will get to see her compete in mixed martial arts. "It's very special for me to fight in Rio,” Dern said. “It was something I had asked the UFC to do. I was very happy that they gave me this opportunity. My family will be all present, and it will be the first time my father will watch me fighting MMA.” Dern entered her first promotional foray with plenty of hype behind her, but she struggled to take opponent Ashley Yoder down for much of the contest and was even dropped in the second frame. However, she did enough damage on the feet and in the clinch -- while making a final imprint on the fight with a late takedown – to capture a split-decision triumph.

Michael Bisping: McGregor Had Announcement Planned at UFC 223 Before Bus Incident

Michael Bisping can’t say exactly what it was, but he claims the have insider knowledge that Conor McGregor was going to attend UFC to make a major announcement before the now infamous bus incident went down. “By all accounts, Conor was going to be at the Barclays Center on Saturday night to make an announcement,” Bisping said on his "Believe You Me” podcast . “It was going to be a title fight or whatever the fight was going to be, I’m sworn to secrecy so I can’t say but he was going to be there.” If Bisping is correct, the announcement was likely going to be that McGregor would challenge newly-crowned champion Khabib Nurmagomedov for lightweight gold at a later date. However, UFC President Dana White said at a pre-fight press conference earlier in the week that McGregor was not expected to attend UFC 223. Regardless, McGregor’s future is uncertain after he threw a dolly at the window of a bus transporting UFC fighters and employees at the Barclays Center two days before the event. As a result of McGregor’s actions, Michael Chiesa and Ray Borg suffered injuries from the broken glass and had to withdraw from UFC 223.

Dustin Poirier: 'I Believe I Will Be the No. 1 Contender When I Finish Justin Gaethje' |

“Time will tell. He might be more motivated than ever and he’s getting better every day or he might be doubting himself. Who knows?” Poirier said. “When it comes to me personally, I’ve had some setbacks, but I’ve bobbed and weaved through the tough times and I keep on fighting. I believe he’s one of those guys that’s going to do the same. I think he’s still going to walk forward and throw shots with 100-percent belief in himself.”

Opening odds: Khabib Nurmagomedov favored over Conor McGregor and Tony Ferguson

“If you look at social media, fans are divided on how high a favorite Khabib would be against either fighter (McGregor or Ferguson) – or a favorite at all,” Oddessa told MMAjunkie. “People just watched Khabib in a stay-busy fight that he won by a blowout on all the scorecards. But he didn’t finish. Big deal.

What can UFC do with Nick Diaz? Here are three different approaches – but one is awful

I don’t have to tell you what a waste this would be, right? Plus, there’s a good chance Diaz just wouldn’t do it. Like his younger brother, you offer him a less-than compelling opponent at non-life-changing money, he’s probably not even going to call you back. Treating him like just another guy in the division is a good way to end up with no Diaz in any division.

Prior to that, he had back-to-back wins on the heels of a decision loss to current featherweight champion Max Holloway at UFC 199 in 2016. Lamas has gone 5-3 since a decision loss to then-champion Jose Aldo a little more than four years ago in a title fight at UFC 169.

5 reasons to watch Bellator 197, where Brandon Girtz could spoil Michael Chandler's plans

Fans have been waiting for a matchup like this for some time. No offense to the previous 10 fighters whom McKee (10-0 MMA, 10-0 BMMA) defeated, but none of them had top-level fighting experience. Lawrence (11-4 MMA, 4-2 BMMA), though, has that type of experience. A competitor on Season 15 of “The Ultimate Fighter,” Lawrence captured the RFA featherweight crown after his three-fight UFC run concluded. The 27-year-old signed with Bellator in 2015 and has gone 4-2 with the promotion. He, without a doubt, represents the toughest test of McKee’s career.
