While he would rather he remain in Russia for the time being, Abdulmanap is well aware that most fighters in the region aspire for international recognition. He could not deny his son that opportunity, but he would make sure he remained firmly in command of Abubakar’s development.

Smartest Guy at the Bar: UFC on Fox 19 Edition

The Ultimate Fighting Championship has used Florida as a stage for Fox-televised events on two previous occasions. Fabricio Werdum stylishly bypassed Travis Browne on his way to the heavyweight title two years ago in Orlando; and Rafael dos Anjos retained his 155-pound crown by sending Donald Cerrone home in 66 seconds in December. Weighty lightweight championship implications for the UFC on Fox 19 main event this Saturday at the Amalie Arena in Tampa went out the window with an injury to Tony Ferguson. The attention has instead shifted to 205 pounds, where a former champion and a former title challenger find themselves in search of brighter days in The Sunshine State. This is UFC on Fox 19 “Teixeira vs. Evans,” through the lens of the Smartest Guy at the Bar: HOW WE GOT HERE: Undisclosed injury has become a common phrase in mixed martial arts. In Ferguson’s case, the injury preventing him from fighting Khabib Nurmagomedov in a No. 1 contender fight in the originally scheduled main event is both disclosed and alarming. “El Cucuy” was forced to withdraw due to a collapsed lung.

Oluwale Bamgbose vs. Cezar Ferreira Round 1 The southpaw Ferreira catches Bamgbose stepping into the pocket and pops him with a straight left, then nearly sends the American to the ground with a chopping leg kick. Bamgbose resets and hits “Mutante” with a nice low kick of his own before forcing the Brazilian to cover up and backpedal with a flurry of heavy punches. The next barrage of strikes from Bamgbose sees a right hand sneak through and puts Ferreira on his back at the base of the fence. Bamgbose tries to pound out his wounded foe, but Ferreira clutters up his guard and clears the cobwebs before powering back to his feet. Ferreira evades another attack, changes levels and goes to the ground atop Bamgbose, who absorbs a couple hard punches before he’s able to escape. Two minutes left in the hectic first round, and Bamgbose switches stances to give lefty Ferreira another look. The pace slows now, with nearly a minute without a significant strike landed for either man. Bamgbose stuffs a level change and stands over the prone Ferreira, looking for an opening to strike. “Mutante” keeps his legs swirling, threatening with an upkick until the horn sounds to end the frame.

Video: Errol Spence Makes Quick Work of Chris Algieri

It's over! @errolspencejr KOs @chrisalgieri in round 5! #mandown #spencealgieri https://t.co/CJOMi06Dn6 — PBC (@premierboxing) April 17, 2016 Errol Spence Jr. deemed it his biggest fight ever. Just one look at the former 2012 U.S. Olympian, and you get the sense even bigger fights will soon be heading his way. Before a national TV audience, before a packed crowd at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, Spence made a loud announcement that he’s arrived by splashing former junior welterweight titlist Chris Algieri (21-3, 8 KOs) three times, including twice in fifth, when referee Benjy Esteves Jr. waved it over at :48. Spence did something that not even the great Manny Pacquiao could do, and that’s stop Algieri for the first time in his career. Algieri was knocked down in the fourth, and that was the beginning of the end for him. The second knockdown, but first in the fifth, came when Spence caught Algieri off balance with a left to the jaw. The end came when he popped Algieri with an overhand left, again hitting the magic spot on the jaw, forcing Algieri into the ropes and plopping down on his butt.

Opinion: Please, No Mayweather-Pacquiao 2

That didn’t take long, did it? All Manny Pacquiao had to do was turn in an impressive performance against Timothy Bradley and the media ran wild with questions about whether we’ll see a rematch between “Pac-Man” and Floyd Mayweather Jr. Please, no. I don’t care how good Pacquiao looked against Bradley. This version of Pacquiao will never, ever beat Mayweather. To be completely honest, I’d prefer it if Pacqiuao retired, but I just don’t believe he will. Everything surrounding Pacquiao’s so-called retirement has lacked conviction. Never once has Pacquiao made it clear that he is done with boxing. Sure, his wife and mother want him to call it quits and there’s the ever looming question about how much time he will have to spare if he becomes a senator in his home country of the Philippines, but you can see that Pacquiao still loves boxing. If nothing else, he loves the fans and putting on a show. There isn’t a show when you’re passing bills in the senate. Honestly, that’s boring. All Pacquiao knows is boxing. After two decades in the sport that turned a pauper into a prince and made him richer than he could have imagined, he’s just going to walk away? More importantly, as much as Pacquiao loves to help the people, another hefty $20 million payday couldn’t hurt; and what’s Jinkee Pacquiao going to do when her husband is moping around the house because he has nothing to do? She’s going to have to let him do what he loves.

UFC on FOX 19: Underdog Picks - DraftKings Playbook

Evans is also starting to show some wear and tear around those once shiny edges, and while coming off a loss, it was a grinder of a fight with Ryan Bader, and after a 2 year layoff. The ring rust factor was likely a real phenomenon in that fight, but the time off before it likely preserved his career a bit longer due to not having his body put through rigorous training camps. Rashad will also have the advantage of this fight being in his backyard–zero travel, zero jetlag.

One Championship Welterweight Crown Stays with Ben Askren in ‘Global Rivals’ Headliner

Nikolay Aleksakhin ’s best efforts were not enough to dethrone Ben Askren . Askren retained his welterweight championship with a unanimous decision over Aleksakhin in the One Championship 40 “Global Rivals” headliner on Friday at the Mall of Asia Arena in Manila, Philippines. All three cageside judges sided with Askren (15-0), to the surprise of no one. Like so many other Askren opponents, Aleksakhin was put in untenable situations, often pinned beneath the four-time NCAA All-American and onetime Olympic wrestler. The champion executed a takedown inside the first minute, advanced to side control and grinded away at the chiseled Russian with elbows, short punches and knees to the head. With that, the tone was set. The fight more or less followed the narrative for the remaining four rounds. Aleksakhin (17-4) gave the Roufusport star pause in the third with power punches and a high kick but could not keep him at bay for long. Whenever Askren sensed danger, he turned to his takedowns and drove the challenger to his back. Aleksakhin stung Askren with a right hand in the fourth round but faded down the stretch, as the “Funky” wrestler’s work took an obvious toll on his gas tank and left him incapable of turning the tide with meaningful offense.

Devin Clark, Leandro Higo Crowned Champions at Resurrection Fighting Alliance 37

Devin Clark now has some hardware to go along with his perfect professional record. Clark captured the vacant Resurrection Fighting Alliance light heavyweight championship with a second-round technical knockout against Rafael Viana in the RFA 37 headliner on Friday at the Sanford Pentagon in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. A hand injury left Viana (6-1) unable to continue between the second and third rounds. The two men staggered each other with simultaneous hooks during their first standup exchange, but from that point forward, Clark (6-0) was in control. The 25-year-old South Dakotan struck for takedowns in both rounds and grinded Viana with punches and elbows from top position. At some point in round two, the Brazilian suffered an injury to his right middle finger. Once Viana returned to his corner between rounds, it became clear his night was done. In the co-main event, Pitbull Brothers export Leandro Higo claimed the vacant RFA bantamweight championship, as he rendered Joey Miolla unconscious with a first-round rear-naked choke. Miolla (8-2) went limp 2:07 into round one, his eight-fight winning streak at an end.

Islam Makhachev Tests Positive for Banned Substance, UFC on Fox 19 Bout Canceled

The UFC on Fox 19 card has taken another hit, as the lightweight bout between Islam Makhachev and Drew Dober has been canceled after Makhachev tested positive for a banned substance. The UFC released a statement on Friday evening announcing that Makhachev was flagged for a potential anti-doping violation involving Meldonium stemming from an out-of-competition sample collection. Makhachev received a provisional suspension as a result of the test. According to BloodyElbow.com Meldonium is a medication used to increase bloodflow in patients with heart conditions and has been commonly used by athletes in Eastern Europe and Russia as a supplement. It is not available in the United States and only recently appeared on the World Anti-Doping Agency’s list of prohibited substances. "The UFC Anti-Doping Program follows the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) Prohibited List of Substances, which is updated yearly. Meldonium was recently added to the WADA Prohibited List, which went into effect on January 1, 2016,” the UFC’s statement read.

Preview: UFC on Fox 19 ‘Teixeira vs. Evans’ - Teixeira vs. Evans

Wins have always been at a premium in the Ultimate Fighting Championship ’s light heavyweight division. Glover Teixeira and Rashad Evans know this truth all too well. Former title challenger will meet former champion when Teixeira takes on Evans in the UFC on Fox 19 headliner this Saturday at Amalie Arena in Tampa, Florida. The original Lyoto Machida - Dan Henderson co-main event was scrapped at the last minute after Machida admitted to using a banned substance, leaving women’s strawweights Rose Namajunas and Tecia Torres to fill the void with a high-stakes rematch. The four-fight main card also features the return of lightweight contender Khabib Nurmagomedov , along with a clash between top-10 featherweights in Cub Swanson and Hacran Dias . Let us take a closer look at each UFC on Fox 19 matchup, with analysis and picks: Light Heavyweights Glover Teixeira (24-4) vs. Rashad Evans (19-4-1) THE MATCHUP: A few years ago, Evans might have been a runaway favorite over a fighter like Teixeira.

Trainer: Bethe Correia Enjoyed ‘Amazing Three-Month Camp’ at American Kickboxing Academy

Bethe Correia will return to Ultimate Fighting Championship competition for the first time since losing to Ronda Rousey in August when she faces Raquel Pennington at UFC on Fox 19 this Saturday in Tampa, Florida. There, she will represent the American Kickboxing Academy in a bout that carries substantial importance for both women. “We did an amazing three-month camp here,” said Edelson Silva, Correia’s head coach and fiancé. “They gave us a nice reception and we’ll return for future fights for sure. AKA is such a strong team in jiu-jitsu, wrestling and overall MMA. Bethe learned a lot and improved her game so much.” Silva promised Correia would show the same aggressiveness in the standup for which she has become known. “Bethe is the same aggressive fighter as always,” he said. “Raquel is also a very aggressive striker, so we’re anticipating an intense fight. Fans will see an improved Bethe.” Since she debuted in the UFC in 2013, Correia has gone 4-1, with her lone setback resulting in a 34-second knockout against then-women’s bantamweight champion Rousey.

Rashad Evans 'embarrassed and disappointed' after quick loss to Teixeira at UFC on FOX 19

“It’s hard to make a decision on what needs to change, fresh after an embarrassing and disappointing loss,” Evans said. “I sit here and I’m embarrassed; I’m disappointed. It’s sad.

It’s easy to fight and to go through it when you’re always on top and doing everything well, but the hardest thing is working through the disappointment, working through doubt in yourself, and it’s not easy.
