Jamie Bates Dominates Richard Abraham in Glory SuperFight Series Main Event

Glory newcomer Jamie Bates made good on his promise to win in his promotional debut as he dominated American brawler Richard Abraham for three rounds. Their encounter was the featured fight of the Glory 40 SuperFight Series undercard in Copenhagen, Denamrk, which was loaded with terrific action. Bates (24-6, 3 KOs) never hurt Abraham in the contest, but his elusiveness and accurate counter striking kept the Chicago-area fighter at bay. Bates’s movement prevented Abraham from getting into a rhythm and reduced him to throwing almost single punches exclusively. Abraham (11-5, 4 KOs) came alive late in the third as he pressed the British contender into the ropes, but his effort to swarm him wasn’t enough as all five ringside judges favored Bates. The official scores were 30-27 (four times) and 29-28. Fighting with a heavy heart and dedicating his battle to his recently-passed father, longtime veteran Mohammed El-Mir survived getting rocked in the first to beat up Norway’s Simon Santana. El-Mir, who was born in Palestine but grew up in Denmark, pressured his featherweight foe throughout and had two knockdowns ruled as slips in the second.

Sherdog’s Top 10: MMA-Connected Movies - Top 10

Mixed martial arts at its highest level involves world-class athletes, sold-out commitment, cutting-edge technique and breathtaking human drama. It makes for a natural fit with Hollywood. From the Mel Gibson triangle choke at the conclusion of “Lethal Weapon” in 1987 -- six years before the first Ultimate Fighting Championship event -- and Oleg Taktarov ’s appearances in “Air Force One” (1997), “Rollerball” (2002), “National Treasure” (2004), “We Own the Night” (2007) and “Predators” (2010) to Quinton Jackson ’s run as B.A. Baracus in “The A-Team” (2010) and Georges St. Pierre ’s turn as pirate Georges Batroc in “Captain America: Winter Solider” (2014), MMA’s connection to the movies has only strengthened over time. The latest installment in the Sherdog Top 10 series focuses on films with an MMA connection, from mixed martial artists in starring roles to the sport itself as the subject: *** OTHERS RECEIVING VOTES: “Fightville” (2012), “Enter the Dragon” (1973), “John Wick” (2014), “John Wick: Chapter 2” (2017), “Kickboxer” (1989), “Tekken” (2010), “Kick

Opinion: The Anniversary of a Terminal, Beastly Sickness

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. * * * Since the moment the first Ultimate Fighting Championship grabbed sensationalist headlines back in 1993, mixed martial arts' death has been routinely and incorrectly forecasted. After the UFC was taken off of pay-per-view -- “The Dark Age” as it is now colloquially known -- it was supposed to kill the sport, but didn't. When Semaphore Entertainment Group finally got the sport regulated in New Jersey, but failed to get the state of Nevada on board and had to sell, it looked like a death knell for the sport. When the Fertitta brothers scooped up the UFC brand under dubious circumstances and finally got back on PPV with UFC 33, Vitor Belfort pulled out of the main event against Tito Ortiz and the event turned into one of the most famous disasters in MMA history with three dreadfully boring 25-minute title fights. The promotion ran over its allotted three-hour PPV block, resulting in most fans' feed going black halfway through the bout.

You know Dustin is coming off of a big win over Jim Miller. So yea, he just happened to be the biggest available name. I don’t think there was anyone else who was as big of a name who was available right now. Dustin’s style always makes for exciting fights. A lot of people like to watch him so… I am always looking for the biggest possible fight that is going to draw the most attention. This was the one that was available.”

D.C. Confident In Rematch, Thinks Advanced Drug Testing Will Stop Dominant Jon Jones

“Last time — I’m a truth teller — the first fight when me and Jon fought there were stories about him hiding from USADA or some [expletive] like that. Then when he finally did get his test, he tested positive for cocaine and his body levels were all just completely out of whack as if he had just finished doing some illegal stuff. Then after he got himself into that trouble, he came back and he fought Ovince Saint-Preux. He was big and he was strong and he looked fantastic and it was his first fight under USADA and he fought like [expletive]. So then at UFC 200, he probably said ‘I can’t really do this the way I want to do it without my help.’ So he said ‘I’m just going to try it again’ and he tested positive again.”

Stories from the Road: Shonie Carter

It takes mere seconds for one to get a feel for been-everywhere, seen-everything quality of Shonie Carter . The unquestionable star of “The Ultimate Fighter 4,” he was known for giving pimp-walking lessons with a cane, making a floating pool chair out of empty plastic bottles he taped together and his black top hat and outlandish attire, which included diamond-studded belt buckles and a Scottish kilt. Though there is a certain underlying ennui in the tone of his voice, there is also a sense of vitality as he approaches his 45th birthday. Currently a personal training director at L.A. Fitness in Chicago, Carter is still fighting. Back in April, he was standing in a ring located within an ice hockey rink, wearing a kilt, holding up his bare fists against someone named Jimmy “The Celtic Warrior” Sweeney and competing along with 27 other men in Coventry, England, where he participated in something called Bare Knuckle Boxing. Carter would not be “Mr. International” without some craziness ensuing. After the fight, Carter and fellow Ultimate Fighting Championship alum Melvin Guillard engaged in a heated tussle with Sweeney at a bar.

Because if she’s gonna do anything, from what I know about her, she’s gonna do it to be the best. And not that I don’t think that she can be the best. It’s just, I just don’t know if her body and her mind at this stage in her life, if that’s what’s right for her,” Flores said in an interview on Submission Radio.

Simon Marcus Edges Jason Wilnis to Reclaim Title at Glory 40: Copenhagen

#AndNew!!!! @SimonMarcusNo1 gets back the GLORY middleweight title! pic.twitter.com/J2m57l2uG8 — GLORY Kickboxing (@GLORY_WS) April 29, 2017 Simon Marcus was hellbent on reclaiming his lost Glory middleweight title and he vowed to conquer rival Jason Wilnis in the main event of Glory 40: Copenhagen. When the smoke cleared and the dust settled inside the squared circle on Saturday, the Canadian was right. Marcus (47-3-2, 26 KOs) avoided most of the incoming attrition from “Psycho” and unloaded nasty kicks to Wilnis’ legs and body, slowing him down. Each round was close, but Marcus was on point and much more accurate with his strikes than the defending champion was. Marcus applied tons of pressure down the stretch and caught the judges’ attention with his more powerful kicks, specifically the ones to the Dutch fighter’s midsection. In the end, Marcus was just a hair better than his foe and won a split decision. The official scores were 48-47 (twice) and 49-46 for Marcus, while the other two officials favored Wilnis 48-47 and 49-46. The win not only allowed Marcus, a former Kunlun Fight and Lion Fight champion, to reclaim his Glory 185-pound crown, it gave him the edge over Wilnis (30-7-1, 8 KOs) in their three matchups.
