Who's the best UFC champion in history? The title matchup is set

(Disclaimer: Fighter seeding was done largely based on total number of title defenses. To make the field, fighters had to have had at least two successful title defenses and/or have held the rare distinction of being a two-division champion. Two fighters qualified, but in part through interim title fight wins. In that case, Renan Barao and Andrei Arlovski met in a play-in game, and Barao got into the field based on one more win in a title fight than Arlovski.)

5 Things You Might Not Know About Alexander Gustafsson

Alexander Gustafsson was a well-respected contender when he challenged Jon Jones for the Ultimate Fighting Championship light heavyweight title at UFC 165 on Sept. 21, 2013 in Toronto. Although he lost a unanimous decision to “Bones,” Gustafsson entered a new competitive tax bracket by giving Jones all he could handle across five rounds. “The Mauler” remains one of the sport’s premier fighters at 205 pounds despite being shelved by a shoulder injury that required surgery. When he returns, Gustafsson figures to position himself for a rematch with reigning light heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier , who defeated him by split decision two-plus years ago. Until then, here are five things you might not know about the Swede: 1. He took up boxing at an early age. Gustafsson was a boxer before he turned to mixed martial arts, starting at the age of 10. He won the Swedish national youth light heavyweight championship in 2003 and three amateur tournaments over a two-year period (2008-09). Gustafsson also partook in shoot-fighting -- a martial art that mixes muay Thai and catch wrestling -- and compiled a 5-1 record with four knockouts.

Dana White Says He Will 'Never' Book Tony Ferguson vs. Khabib Nurmagomedov Again |

Of course, White says that now but if Nurmagomedov is successful on Saturday night to become UFC lightweight champion and there’s no sign of McGregor returning before the end of the year, it’s going to be awfully tough to deny Ferguson a rightful shot at the title.

Max Holloway: 'Opportunities Like This Come Once in a Lifetime' |

“The news is crazy. My manager called me. He told me Tony’s hurt and they want you and Khabib, so I was like, how do you turn down an opportunity like this? Opportunities like this come once in a lifetime. Really, only one guy was able to do it. I’m glad to be the second guy and go out there and make history,” said Holloway.

'Wonderboy' Issues Fair Warning to Darren Till: 'There Are Levels to this Game' |

“Also, I’m excited to face another striker. Most of the guys I’ve fought in my MMA career have been wrestlers — Jake Ellenberger, Johny Hendricks, even Rory MacDonald is known for his wrestling and grappling, Tyron Woodley. I was super excited about the [Jorge] Masvidal fight cause he was a striker and here we go again. I think it’s going to be a chess match. Darren Till is turning heads. He finished [Donald] Cerrone, of course he was on a three fight losing streak. This guy is ranked No. 7 so at first it didn’t make sense to fight this guy, especially in his hometown, but I’ve fought in enemy territory before so I thought why not go out there and put on a show in front of the Liverpool fans.”


Boxing fans in Cardiff, Wales were privileged to quite a boxing event over the weekend. Now UFC fighters are taking to social media to share their thoughts on the event’s headlining title fight.

Tony Ferguson ‘Hurt, Frustrated, Angry’ After Freak Accident Forces UFC 223 Exit

Tony Ferguson is understandably devastated after a knee injury forced his withdrawal from the UFC 223 headliner against Khabib Nurmagomedov less than one week before their fight. “Words can’t explain how hurt, frustrated, angry and in disbelief I am right now,” Ferguson wrote on Instagram. “I was completing my UFC pre-fight media obligations on Friday. I had an accident on a studio set that tore a ligament in my knee. “My doctor and the UFC doctor both said I can’t fight and one is saying I need surgery, so I will see a specialist to make a final determination on how I can heal up and get back in there to defend my belt ASAP.” I'm told the injury to Tony Ferguson was literally caused by a trip. The freak accident of all freak accidents. He was walking, saw someone he wasn't expecting to see, veered sharply to say hello and tripped. — Brett Okamoto (@bokamotoESPN) April 1, 2018 As a result, Max Holloway will face Khabib Nurmagomedov for the 155-pound championship in the new UFC 223 headliner on Saturday at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn.

Cheick Kongo vs. Javy Ayala Booked for Bellator 199 in San Jose on May 12

A heavyweight showdown between Cheick Kongo and Javy Ayala has been booked for Bellator 199. The promotion recently confirmed the pairing. Both Kongo and Ayala were previously revealed as alternates for Bellator’s ongoing heavyweight grand prix. Bellator 199 takes place on May 12 at the SAP Center in San Jose, Calif., and will feature a grand prix bout pitting Ryan Bader against Muhammed Lawal . Kongo enters the matchup on a five-bout winning streak. Most recently, the UFC veteran earned a split decision over Augusto Sakai at Bellator 179 this past May. The Frenchman is 9-2 during his tenure with the Scott-Coker led promotion. Ayala, meanwhile, dropped a unanimous decision to Roy Nelson in his most recent outing at Bellator 183. Prior to that, the 29-year-old Californian had scored back-to-back knockout wins over Sergei Kharitonov and Roy Boughton .

Ricky Rainey Replaces Abdul Razak Alhassan, Meets Muslim Salikhov at UFC on Fox 29

Ricky Rainey will step in for the injured Abdul Razak Alhassan and face Muslim Salikhov in a welterweight bout at UFC on Fox 29 . Promotion officials announced the change on Monday. UFC on Fox 29 takes place at Gila River Arena in Glendale, Ariz., on April 14 and is headlined by a lightweight duel between Dustin Poirier and Justin Gaethje . The main card airs on the Fox Network following prelims on Fox Sports 1 and UFC Fight Pass. A seven-time Bellator MMA veteran, Rainey enters his Octagon debut on the heels of back-to-back decision wins over Marc Stevens and Gilbert Smith within the California-based promotion. “The Sniper” owns a 13-4 career mark that includes seven triumphs via knockout or technical knockout. Salikhov came up short in his promotional debut, as he tapped to an Alex Garcia rear-naked choke in the second round at UFC Fight Night 122. That halted an 11-fight winning streak that included victories over UFC veterans Melvin Gulliard and Ivan Jorge . “The King of Kung Fu” is 13-2 as a pro and has finished all but one of his wins inside the distance.

Conor McGregor's chaotic arrival after UFC 223 media day causes damage, injury to Michael Chiesa

McGregor’s arrival for UFC 223 likely is based around his desire to support SBG Ireland teammate Artem Lobov (13-14-1 MMA, 2-4 UFC), who fights Alex Caceres (13-11 MMA, 8-9 UFC) on the card. He also provides some additional intrigue to the main event title fight, where Khabib Nurmagomedov (25-0 MMA, 9-0 UFC) and Max Holloway (19-3 MMA, 15-3 UFC) are scheduled to fight for the 155-pound title.

Why the UFC Shut Down Robert Whittaker’s Plans to Compete at Commonwealth Games

In late February, Ultimate Fighting Championship middleweight king Robert Whittaker announced that he would be representing Australia in wrestling as part of the Commonwealth Games on the Gold Coast in Queensland, Australia, pending approval from the UFC. It seems the UFC didn’t like the idea of Whittaker competing, even though he would be able to get in a full fight camp -- just less than two months -- to prepare for the fight following the games. Whittaker’s decision to accept the fight against Yoel Romero and defend his middleweight title at UFC 225 on June 9 in Chicago ultimately sealed his fate and was the main reason the UFC put a stop to him participating. Whittaker talked with MMA Fighting about the decision to withdraw from the Commonwealth Games. ”Obviously, wrestling is a vital part of mixed martial arts,” Whittaker told MMA Fighting. “I managed to compete in wrestling to sharpen my skills, one thing led to another and it led to the Commonwealth Games.” Whittaker understandably said that the UFC told him that they would not allow him to compete at the games because of the amount of money invested in the UFC 225 promotion.

14 UFC and Bellator stars who were bullied growing up

You’re doing your job right if you bully opponents in MMA. But you’d be surprised at the number of MMA stars who were bullied before they ever stepped into the cage.

Who is the Best UFC Lightweight of All Time? |

So we move on to Benson Henderson. He is probably the toughest to discount out of the men that made the shortlist due to his longevity, performances and level of opposition. He was a dominant WEC lightweight champion who beat the likes of Jamie Varner and Donald Cerrone (twice), before losing the belt to Anthony Pettis. Following that, he came to the UFC and went on a seven fight winning streak in which he won the title from Edgar and dominated Nate Diaz. However, the same critique of Edgar applies to Henderson too. Out of those seven wins two were very close, and some would say controversial, decisions over Edgar, and one was a close split decision over Gilbert Melendez. He then also lost to Pettis (again) before winning another split decision over Josh Thomson. So overall, in Henderson’s biggest fights, he generally won but won hotly contested decisions, not dominant victories or definitive finishes like Khabib and Ferguson.

10 fights that shaped UFC's lightweight division – from Pulver-Penn to McGregor-Alvarez

Since then, the lightweight division has gone through trials and tribulations like no other UFC weight class, taking four official tries to get it off the ground. Still, the fighters found ways to persevere, and the weight class produced talent that helped open many doors for growth in the modern era. In fact, the 155-pound stable has arguably been the deepest populated division in the UFC for the past decade, consistently providing amazing fights for us to sink our teeth into each year. At UFC 223 on April 7 , we get our next major lightweight attraction: interim champ Tony Ferguson (23-3 MMA, 13-1 UFC) vs. Khabib Nurmagomedov (25-0 MMA, 9-0 UFC) for the undisputed belt.

Vitor Belfort Would Gladly Reconsider Retirement for a Large Payday

Vitor Belfort has been one of the most feared fighters throughout his career, using devastating power coupled with ridiculous hand speed to run roughshod over his opponents. However, in the eyes of many, his career has been overshadowed by his well-publicized use of Testosterone Replacement Therapy. Belfort, who has amassed 40 professional fights in his career, (26-13 & 1 NC) made his debut in the Ultimate Fighting Championship back at UFC 12 in February 1997, fighting the likes of David Abbott , Randy Couture and Wanderlei Silva in his early days. He even took a catchweight (210) bout with Alistair Overeem back in 2006. However in the past few years, “The Phenom” has been much less effective inside the Octagon and has decided to hang up his four ounce gloves with one last fight against former UFC lightweight champion Lyoto Machida on May 12 at UFC 224 . However, it seems that the Brazilian could be lured back if offered a large financial package. Belfort recently talked to on what it would take to keep him employed on the UFC roster.
