Ray Borg Withdraws from UFC Chile to Cope with Son's Brain Surgeries | MMAWeekly.com

Considering the gravity of the situation, it’s understandable that Borg found it necessary to withdraw from the bout with Moreno, which was scheduled for just three weeks from now in Santiago, Chile. The timing should allow UFC officials enough notice to schedule a new opponent for Moreno or at least replace the bout on the UFC Fight Night 129 fight card , which has undergone numerous changes in the past week.

UFC Creator, Co-Founder Art Davie to be Enshrined in Hall of Fame on July 5

Just a man with an idea .. Entering the Contributor Wing of the #UFCHoF July 5 - @ArtDavie! pic.twitter.com/QV0zAhsadx — UFC (@ufc) April 27, 2018 The UFC hall of fame just got a new addition. The promotion has announced that Art Davie will be inducted into its “Contributor Wing” on July 5 as part of the UFC’s annual International Fight Week, which will be headlined by UFC 226. “Art’s contributions to UFC helped lay the foundation for the sport that fans around the world see today,” UFC President Dana White said. “It’s an honor to induct Art into the UFC Hall of Fame class of 2018 and we look forward to celebrating his career at our ceremony in July.” Without Art Davie there might not be an Ultimate Fighting Championship . After being inspired by the famed “Gracie in Action” videos of the late 1980s, Davie approached Rorion Gracie with the idea to air a style vs. style tournament on pay-per-view. After finding a PPV company willing to air their show, Davie and Gracie put together UFC 1, which would be won by Rorion Gracie’s younger brother, Royce. “Being inducted into the UFC Hall of Fame is the greatest honor that can be bestowed to anyone involved with the sport of mixed martial arts,” Davie said.

Conor McGregor’s Boxing Coach Owen Roddy Believes MMA Fans are Missing Out

Former Ultimate Fighting Championship lightweight and featherweight champion Conor McGregor has not fought inside the Octagon since defeating Eddie Alvarez in November 2016 and his boxing coach Owen Roddy believes his absence has left a gaping hole in the sport. McGregor famously coerced boxing superstar Floyd Mayweather Jr. out of retirement for a one-off boxing fight in August last year and since then has been on the periphery. The Irishman made headlines at UFC 223 media day after he and a large group of men were allegedly let into the Barclays Center by credentialed members of his Mac Life promotional team. McGregor attacked a bus holding the red corner fighters for the event and was filmed throwing a loading dolly into the window, resulting in Michael Chiesa and Ray Borg having to withdraw from their fights due to injuries sustained from the shattered glass. Roddy recently talked with Express Sport in an exclusive interview to discuss his star pupil and talked about how determined McGregor is to get his UFC career back on track after being stripped of the lightweight title earlier this month.

New Jersey Commission Denies Merab Dvalishvili’s Appeal of Loss at UFC Fight Night 128

Merab Dvalishvili ’s appeal of a controversial loss at UFC Fight Night 128 has been denied by the New Jersey State Athletic Control Board. NJSACB Commissioner Larry Hazzard Sr. explained the decision in a letter on Friday. Dvalishvili lost to Ricky Simon via technical submission at the 5:00 mark of the third round on April 21 at Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, N.J. Dvalishvili was on his way to winning a unanimous decision when he was trapped in a mounted guillotine with approximately one minute remaining. “The established written protocol for me to overturn a referee’s call; is, if in my discretion; the referee committed a self-evident and palpable error,” Hazzard wrote. “Many have referred to the apparent submission as a mounted guillotine choke, but to cageside lead ringside physician for the event, Dr. Michael Kelly, and also referee John McCarthy, it was more akin to a neck crank or a one sided choke. This would cause only one side of Dvalishvili’s neck to have limited blood flow to the brain. Further, this one sided choke would result in a slower time to unconsciousness and also a faster recovery when released.

Colby Covington: Khabib Nurmagomedov ‘Couldn’t Even Finish a Real Estate Agent’

Ultimate Fighting Championship welterweight contender and professional trash talker Colby Covington is at it again, this time taking a shot at the newly crowned lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov . Nurmagomedov won the UFC lightweight belt earlier this month with one-sided victory over short-notice opponent Al Iaquinta . The win improved the Dagestani’s perfect professional mixed martial arts record to 26-0. While “The Eagle” is soaring at lightweight, Covington is clearly unimpressed with what he’s seen of Nurmagomedov, particularly in his last fight against Iaquinta. Covington, who will fight for the interim UFC welterweight belt against former lightweight champion Rafael dos Anjos on June 9 at UFC 225 , believes if the Dagestani fought the way he did at welterweight that he would get exposed. Covington was a recent guest on MMA Junkie Radio and warned Nurmagomedov to stay at 155 pounds: “I think it works for the little lightweight division, but that (expletive) doesn’t fly at welterweight. You’ve got a real All-American wrestler, not some sambo dude, so if he comes up to welterweight, he’s going to get his head dunked and balls put on his forehead just like the rest of them.
