My guess is that @TonyFergusonXT was injured, tried to play it in-front of ufc personnel. Sounds like a to devistating injury to be a trip. Let’s hope not, but I would guess he tried to tough it out, and didn’t want to say how he got injured. Looking for a cover. @arielhelwani

Khabib Nurmagomedov Eyes Big Fight With Georges St-Pierre After UFC 223 | BJPenn.com

like I said. There is Conor, there is Ferguson, there is Khabib at 155. Like I said, I don’t know that is what I’m going to plan to do. If I beat Bisping, I might stay at 185. Or I might go challenge a guy at 170. It depends. The way my body is made I couldn’t make 155. It would be a tough cut. Because I walk around at 188 – 188 pounds when I wake up in the morning. I think Khabib is about the same size as me. Maybe heavier than me. A lot of 155ers are bigger than me. But it would be a tough cut. And I’m not a big fan of cutting weight. But it depends on who’s there at the right moment. Maybe it could be done, but I don’t know.”

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.

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.
