Matches to Make After UFC on Fox 24

The superlatives have been exhausted. Demetrious Johnson on Saturday waltzed into the record books, submitted Wilson Reis with a third-round armbar and kept his historic stranglehold on the Ultimate Fighting Championship flyweight title in the UFC on Fox 24 headliner at the Sprint Center in Kansas City, Missouri. Reis tapped 4:49 into Round 3, as “Mighty Mouse” equaled Anderson Silva ’s all-time mark of 10 consecutive UFC title defenses, set between July 7, 2007 and July 7, 2012 ( online sportsbooks ). Johnson was downright masterful, offensively and defensively. The 30-year-old AMC Pankration lynchpin outlanded Reis by nearly a 7-to-1 margin in the significant strikes department, according to FightMetric data. Meanwhile, the challenger whiffed on all six of his takedown attempts against Johnson and connected on just 18 of the 170 total strikes he threw. Reis fired 139 significant strikes at the champion’s head; only two of them found the mark. In the aftermath of UFC on Fox 24 “Johnson vs. Reis,” here are five matches that ought to be made: Demetrious Johnson vs.

Dana White Angling for Jon Jones and Daniel Cormier Rematch for UFC 214 | MMAWeekly.com

They had also been booked for a rematch prior to that at UFC 197, but that attempt went sideways when Cormier had to withdraw due to a knee injury.

Opinion: The Paradox of Perfection

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. * * * Ultimate Fighting Championship President Dana White was the first to take the dais after UFC on Fox 24 in Kansas City, Missouri. He announced the usual business -- gate numbers, bonus winners, compliments to the host city -- before telling the press about how he overheard Demetrious Johnson asking coach Matt Hume what he did wrong in his one-sided drubbing of Wilson Reis . White answered on behalf of Hume and really anyone else who witnessed the fight: “Nothing.” When asked about Robert Whittaker ’s win, he was just as effusive: “He fought a perfect fight.” As for Rose Namajunas : “[She] fought a flawless fight.” Perfect, perfect, perfect. It’s typical promoter hyperbole, but in a lot of ways, White wasn’t wrong. None of the winners in the top three fights had to overcome any real adversity. Namajunas utterly dismantled Michelle Waterson ; Whittaker completely stifled Ronaldo Souza ; and Johnson? He Mighty Mouse’d Reis, landing more significant strikes than his opponent even attempted before adding demoralization to dominance by submitting the jiu-jitsu ace.

Sherdog’s Official Mixed Martial Arts Rankings - Playing the Fox Card

With flyweight and pound-for-pound king Demetrious Johnson closing as high as a -1100 favorite entering his UFC on Fox 24 headliner against Wilson Reis on April 15, no one expected to see a new UFC 125-pound champion crowned in Kansas City, Missouri; those expectations were on the money. “Mighty Mouse” assaulted Reis for almost 15 minutes before coolly armbarring him to notch his UFC record-tying 10th consecutive title defense. In this edition of the Sherdog.com rankings, Johnson does not have to move a muscle, retaining his No. 1 spot at flyweight. However, the rest of the UFC on Fox 24 main card was filled with up-and-coming fighters seizing the moment on primetime network television. In the co-feature, Rose Namajunas earned her fourth win in her last five bouts by dominating former Invicta Fighting Championships titleholder Michelle Waterson , as she landed a nasty head kick and followed up with a rear-naked choke in the second round. As a result, “Thug Rose” is on the move again, rising one spot on our 115-pound list, from fifth to fourth.

What to Watch For: Bellator 178

Perhaps they are shooting for a best-of-seven series in this rivalry. Daniel Straus will face Patricio Freire for a fourth time when he defends his Bellator MMA featherweight championship against the Brazilian “Pitbull” in the Bellator 178 headliner on Friday at the Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Connecticut. Their five-round battle anchors a four-fight main card that airs live on Spike TV (9 p.m. ET/8 p.m. CT). On the sidelines for more than a year, Straus has not fought since he reclaimed the 145-pound title with a five-round unanimous decision over Freire at Bellator 145 in November 2015. The 32-year-old American Top Team export has compiled nine wins across his past 11 outings, his run highlighted by victories over Pat Curran , Henry Corrales , Justin Wilcox , Alvin Robinson and Marlon Sandro . A decorated high school wrestler in his native Ohio, Straus owns an 11-3 mark in Bellator ( live odds ). Freire last competed at Bellator 160 in August, when a leg injury resulted in a technical knockout loss to former Ultimate Fighting Championship and World Extreme Cagefighting lightweight titleholder Benson Henderson .

The Bottom Line: Best Ever? Prove It, ‘Mighty Mouse’

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. * * * After an impressive rout of Wilson Reis in the UFC on Fox 24 main event on Saturday, Demetrious Johnson was unusually outspoken in his post-fight interview. The longtime flyweight titleholder proclaimed himself the greatest UFC champion ever and said he wants a seven-figure payday for an eventual fight against the Ultimate Fighting Championship ’s bantamweight king. Johnson is wise to recognize that no one else will champion his cause as steadfastly as he can and that he is unlikely to receive gifts for which he does not ask. However, he’s still missing the big picture. Johnson wouldn’t be doing the UFC a favor by taking a fight with the bantamweight champion. The reverse is much closer to the truth. That fight is precisely what he should be lobbying for if he’s serious about making more money and solidifying his legacy ( Vegas odds ). Johnson remains a tremendous talent as a fighter, but he’s not exactly in a great position to be making financial demands as literally the worst draw in modern UFC history.

Artem Lobov’s Mystical Connections

It might surprise the mixed martial arts universe to hear that Conor McGregor still has a hands-on approach when his teammates are primed for big fights. Ahead of his five-round clash with Cub Swanson in the UFC Fight Night 108 main event ( live odds ) this Saturday at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tennessee, Artem Lobov trumpeted the Ultimate Fighting Championship lightweight titleholder’s impact on his preparation. McGregor has long been revered for his ability to break down opponents, and Lobov claims his SBG Ireland stablemate offered plenty of pearls of wisdom in relation to Swanson. “He knows Cub’s style very well,” Lobov told Sherdog.com. “He is very familiar with his fights, so he had a lot of pointers for me going into this fight.” Given the buzz surrounding a potential boxing match between McGregor and Floyd Mayweather Jr., it should come as little surprise that “The Notorious” one focused primarily on hands and footwork with Lobov. “At the start of this camp, I did a lot of boxing sparring with Conor,” he said. “Just a few days ago, I was over in his house for a training session, and he gave me a lot of points to work on after it with my boxing.

The Hit List: Undefeated Fighters in the UFC

Joanna Jedrzejczyk has taken up residence in a most exclusive neighborhood and has shown no intention of leaving anytime soon. One of only 34 undefeated mixed martial artists on the Ultimate Fighting Championship roster with at least one victory inside the Octagon, Jedrzejczyk’s perfect 13-0 record will be at stake when she defends the women’s strawweight championship against Jessica Andrade in the UFC 211 co-main event on May 13 in Dallas. The 29-year-old Polish muay Thai machine has risen to the top of the women’s MMA world in wake of Ronda Rousey ’s precipitous fall. Jedrzejczyk has been nothing short of sublime since she put down roots in the UFC a little less than three years ago. Wins over Juliana Lima , Claudia Gadelha (twice), Carla Esparza , Jessica Penne , Valerie Letourneau and Karolina Kowalkiewicz have followed, as “Joanna Champion” blossomed into superstardom. Jedrzejczyk last competed at UFC 205 on Nov. 12, when she earned a five-round unanimous decision over Kowalkiewicz at Madison Square Garden in New York. In her seven UFC appearances, the American Top Team rep has outlanded her opposition by a mind-boggling 830-290 margin in the significant strikes department, per FightMetric .

Dana White: Ronda Rousey Hasn’t Told Me She’s Retiring, But UFC Return Unlikely

At least for now, Ronda Rousey hasn’t officially called it a career. But according to UFC President Dana White, a return to the Octagon doesn’t seem likely at this point. “I don’t think [she’s coming back],” White recently told TMZ Sports . “She hasn’t retired. She hasn’t told me she’s retiring…She’s actually enjoying herself. She’s having fun. She made a lot of money and she’s enjoying it now.” Rousey returned to action after more than a year hiatus at UFC 207 on Dec. 30, when she suffered a 48-second technical knockout loss to reigning 135-pound queen Amanda Nunes . That came on the heels of Rousey’s second-round KO loss to Holly Holm at UFC 193 in November 2015, a defeat that ended her 12-fight unbeaten streak and shattered her aura of invincibility. Since the loss to Nunes, Rousey has maintained a low profile, much like she did after suffering her first career setback. However, “Rowdy” has found opportunities outside of the cage. The Olympic judoka has made appearances in a few blockbuster films including Expendables 3, Furious 7 and Entourage. She also recently participated in filming for a role in the hit NBC series “Blindspot.

I just realized that I had a lot, and it hurts to not have it. And I know how much work it’s going to take to get it back. I’m just more grateful now for the things that I’ve been able to accomplish than when I was back when I was accomplishing them.”

Dana White: Jon Jones to Receive Title Shot Upon Return at UFC 214 if Ready

It appears that Jon Jones will be able to pick up right where he left off when he is able to return to active competition this summer. According to UFC President Dana White, the Las Vegas-based promotion would be willing to grant Jones an immediate light heavyweight title shot against Daniel Cormier at UFC 214 on July 29 in Anaheim, Calif. The Jackson-Wink MMA standout is serving a USADA-mandated suspension for testing positive for the banned substances clomiphene and letrozole during an out-of-competition drug screen prior to UFC 200. He is eligible to return on July 6. "Cormier is available to fight on July 8, but that time frame doesn't work for Jon Jones ," White told ESPN.com on Monday. "Cormier already told me he's willing to fight either Jones or [Jimi] Manuwa. "If Jon Jones is ready to fight [by UFC 214] on July 29, we'll see the Jones versus Cormier rematch, finally.” Jones has only fought once in the last two years since defeating Cormier via unanimous decision in their first meeting at UFC 182 on Jan.

Dustin Poirier: Inside The Circle Where It Matters

Dustin Poirier's evolution through the fight game has taken place in the public eye since he stepped foot in the WEC cage, and his progress has been well-documented through film and highlight reels alike. At 21 years old, the Louisiana native hit bigger stages in 2010 and has spent the past eight years leveling opposition and scrapping his way up multiple divisional ladders. And while there have been setbacks and adversities to overcome, the bounce back has always been part of what makes Poirier who he is. The hard-knock struggle forged resilience inside of Poirier, and he's found a way to capture that internal fire to use at will. What used to break loose and produce either a memorable finish or become his undoing is now in his control, and that particular word is at the center of Poirier's world heading into his showdown with Eddie Alvarez at UFC 211 in Dallas on May 13. Simply put: Whatever falls within his control represents the elements he nurtures with time, sweat and sacrifices. Everything else is just everything else. "In the past I've gotten worked up with rankings, where I'm at on the card, implications if I win the fight, but none of that matters without the fight," Poirier told FloCombat in an exclusive interview.

‘Mighty Mouse’ Willing to Face Garbrandt at 125, But ‘He Doesn’t Get to Dictate’ Fight Terms

In recent weeks, a hypothetical superfight between Demetrious Johnson and Cody Garbrandt has become a hot topic in the MMA community. That chatter intensified when Garbrandt, who only recently captured bantamweight gold with a victory over Dominick Cruz in December, said he’d consider dropping to 125 pounds to challenge for Johnson’s title. “That’s my thing. I’d rather go down before I go up,” Garbrandt said recently . “Demetrious has a fight with Wilson Reis in the not too distant future. That’s coming up. He’ll tie Anderson Silva ’s record, and his next fight would be the all-time record. So he has all that going. He’s going after a huge record. Make him earn it [against] a worthy opponent right here.” As he usually does, Johnson handled his business in the UFC on Fox 24 headliner on Saturday night, submitting Reis with an armbar 4:49 into the third round of their bout at the Sprint Center in Kansas City, Mo. That victory tied Silva for the most consecutive title defenses in UFC history. Johnson is more than willing to fight Garbrandt, but only on his terms as longstanding champion.

Robert Whittaker: UFC Middleweight Champ Michael Bisping Owes Me a Fight

If he wasn’t a contender before UFC on Fox 24 , Robert Whittaker definitely is now following his thrashing of Ronaldo Souza in Kansas City, Mo., on Saturday night. “The Reaper” won his sixth consecutive middleweight bout and seventh straight overall with a dominant performance against the heralded “Jacare,” as he stopped the Brazilian grappling ace with a head kick and follow-up ground strikes 3:28 into the second round of their bout. “I prepared for the fight to be that way. I’ve been training countless hours for this fight. We went through all the situations and scenarios that could possibly happen and we drilled them,” Whittker said. “This was a scenario that arose, and I executed a game plan.” Although the Whittaker was largely in control, he did have to survive one moment where the two-tie Abu Dhabi Combat Club Submission Wrestling World Championship gold medalist briefly attached himself to his back in the opening stanza. However, the Australian fighter was able to escape relatively quickly, and he spent the rest of the fight punishing “Jacare” on the feet.
