He has held stable the last few days and is still one happy baby, but will need to undergo brain surgery tomorrow. We ask that you keep Anthony in your thoughts as we pray everything goes smooth tomorrow. Thank you all for the love and support. #borgstrong

Thanks everyone for the love and support!! Another first round finish in the books!! Before we talk about last night, I have to share this picture! It means so much!

Conor McGregor's boxing coach sizes up Khabib Nurmagomedov, believes fight will happen

“Khabib, he hasn’t finished many fights lately,” Roddy said. “Now, he always says that he does that on purpose, but I don’t think so. … He says, ‘I like to punish people for five rounds.’ I always say, if you’re going to give Conor McGregor five attempts to land a shot on you – even if he doesn’t land in the first round or the second or the third or the fourth – he has five attempts to land one shot. I’ve seen Conor go in and land in the first 30 seconds of the first round.”

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! — 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.

I would like to see Aldo get back to his old ways but that Conor loss took something out of him. He is 31, while mileage may be adding up, the guy is a legend and I just don't see him being done yet. He didn't lose for 9 years then lost 1 to Conor and 2 fights to Max.

Torres kicked high 30 seconds in, then slipped to the canvas. Gracie rushed in, but couldn’t had to settle for clinching Torres against the fence on the feet.

Dana White: McGregor vs. Nurmagomedov Would Have to Be in Las Vegas, Not Russia

Conor McGregor ’s future remains uncertain as he awaits trial in New York for his attack on a bus carrying fighters and employees ahead of UFC 223. Just don’t expect the promotion to make the first move when it comes to doling out punishment to the sport’s biggest star. “He’s gotta be punished by the law first,” White told TMZ Sports . “Let’s see what happens in New York.” McGregor has been charged with three counts of misdemeanor assault and one count of criminal mischief after throwing a dolly through the window of the bus at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y. As a result, fighters Michael Chiesa and Ray Borg suffered injuries from the shattered glass and were forced to withdraw from UFC 223. A company employee was also injured during the melee. McGregor posted $50,000 bail after his arrest, and is next hearing is scheduled for June 14. While White strongly voiced his displeasure in the immediate aftermath of the incident, he seemed to soften his stance somewhat following the conclusion of UFC 223. “We talked. It’s good,” White said at the UFC 223 post-fight presser.

Junior dos Santos to Face Ex-WSOF Champ Blagoy Ivanov in UFC Fight Night Boise Feature

Junior dos Santos will welcome former World Series of Fighting heavyweight king Blagoy Ivanov to the Octagon at UFC Fight Night 133 on July 14. confirmed the pairing on Monday evening. UFC Fight Night 133 takes place at CenturyLink Arena in Boise, Idaho and will air on Fox Sports 1. The card will also include a women’s bantamweight tilt pitting Marion Reneau against Cat Zingano . Dos Santos was recently cleared by USADA in an anti-doping case after it was determined the ex heavyweight champion took a tainted supplement from a Brazilian compounding pharmacy. “Cigano” last competed at UFC 211, where he suffered a first-round technical knockout loss to Stipe Miocic in a title bout. The 34-year-old has alternated wins and losses in eight bouts since 2012. Ivanov, meanwhile, has lost just once in 17 professional outings — a second-round submission defeat to Alexander Volkov at Bellator 120 in May 2014. Since then, he has reeled off a five-fight winning streak, capturing the belt for the now-defunct WSOF promotion in the process.

Daniel Cormier Doesn’t Understand Why Fans Have Decided to Embrace Him

Fight fans seem to have changed their opinion over Ultimate Fighting Championship light heavyweight king Daniel Cormier over the years and the man known as “DC” is unsure what he has done to go from someone who gets booed out of a building to the recent ovation he received at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center. “I don’t know what I did,” Cormier said during a media tour (transcript courtesy of promoting “The Ultimate Fighter 27” on Tuesday. “I didn’t really do anything. I did the exact same thing. They decide when they like you and when they don’t.” Cormier believes the issue fans have had with him in the past intensified when he started his rivalry with former Jon Jones . Although the perception of Jones has changed over the years as he went from issues to issue, Cormier understands how fickle fights fans can be and has decided to just accept the love and run with it. “When I went out there that first time and they booed me with Jon [Jones], I just played the bad guy,” Cormier said. “I will say all the stuff you hate me saying. You hate that I make fun of [Jon Jones] for his addictions? I will say every one of those addictions and I’ll list them all out.

Marvin Vettori Displeased with UFC Commentators, Production Team

Marvin Vettori believes he won his clash with Israel Adesanya at UFC on Fox 29 . The two Ultimate Fighting Championship middleweight prospects fought on the April 14 card headlined by lightweight contenders Justin Gaethje and Dustin Poirier . Although two judges gave the match to Adesanya, “The Italian Dream” is certain that the third is the only one who saw it right. All of Vettori’s losses in the UFC -- and in his entire career, in fact -- have come by decision in close fights, so he understands very well why a fighter should never leave it in the hands of the judges. “I had a good performance. I think I won the match,” Vettori told “I re-watched the first round at least ten times, and that round was mine. He could do nothing. I canceled him. He only threw some jabs and inside low kicks, but he missed a lot. He never accepted the war, given his fight style. It seems to me that the stats aren’t so accurate. He barely touched me. The second round went more his way, but in the third round I brought him down and I controlled the match until the finish.
