Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu ace Mackenzie Dern made her UFC debut in March, defeating Ashley Yoder, now she hopes to add Amanda Cooper to her hit list.

Preview: UFC 224 ‘Nunes vs. Pennington’ - Nunes vs. Pennington

After a two-week hiatus from the Ultimate Fighting Championship, UFC 224 goes down this Saturday, May 12, 2018, from the Jeunesse Arena in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

Take Notes: One Championship’s Lesson in Accessibility

In the past week, two of the top names in mixed martial arts made big announcements about their content distribution. As was rumored in the past several weeks, The Ultimate Fighting Championship confirmed that ESPN’s new ESPN+ platform would serve as a broadcast partner for at least 15 events in a multi-year deal worth $150 million per year. This would leave room a second broadcasting partner -- Fox is likely to sign a new deal -- to distribute additional content.

The Film Room: Ronaldo ‘Jacare’ Souza vs. Kelvin Gastelum

Ronaldo Souza and Kelvin Gastelum on Saturday in Rio de Janeiro will co-headline UFC 224 in a three-round battle that could decide the next No. 1 contender for the Ultimate Fighting Championship middleweight crown. After losing to current champion Robert Whittaker , Souza returned to the win column with a dominant performance against Derek Brunson in January. Gastelum, meanwhile, looked better than ever in his most recent appearance, as he knocked out former 185-pound titleholder Michael Bisping on Nov. 25. With Whittaker set to defend his championship against Yoel Romero at UFC 225, the Souza-Gastelum confrontation takes on added importance. This installment of The Film Room puts their forthcoming clash under the microscope: One Last Chance At 38 years of age, this might be Souza’s last chance at UFC gold. Since entering the promotion in 2013, “Jacare” has always seemed to be one significant win away from a title shot, and he has yet to get over the hump. His only losses in the UFC have come against Whittaker and Romero, the two men fighting for the middleweight belt in June.

Bellator 199's Jon Fitch thinks stars could align for rematch with Georges St-Pierre

If Fitch has to use a little MMA math to declare himself the world’s best welterweight, there are worse things in the world. At the very least, it will give him some bragging rights after he failed to capture a title from then-UFC champ Georges St-Pierre in 2008.

Raquel Pennington Embracing the Emotions of First Title Shot at UFC 224

UFC 224 available for order on Amazon Prime (Prime Video PPV) Raquel Pennington takes on the Ultimate Fighting Championship bantamweight queen Amanda Nunes for the title this Saturday at UFC 224 . Pennington (9-5) is riding a four fight winning streak going into the bout and this will be the first title shot of her career. Although she’ll have her hands full as she’s up against the heavy-handed champion in Nunes (15-4), who is in career-best form having won six straight with notable victories over Miesha Tate , Ronda Rousey and Valentina Shevchenko . “The Lioness” will attempt to defend her bantamweight title for the third straight fight against “Rocky.” Pennington recently discussed MMAJunkie.com the emotional roller coaster she’s experienced while training for the fight and that she’ll be ready to go come Saturday night: “I feel really confident about this fight. I just feel really confident in my skills and my abilities. I did a lot of soul-searching, I guess you can say, throughout this fight camp. I’ve probably experienced every emotion that you can probably think of.

UFC 224's Mackenzie Dern on balancing media, weight cut – and questions about weight cut

“I think like, ‘Man, I missed weight my second and third fight of my career,’” Dern said. “I never did amateur. I went straight to pro. So it was new to me. I wasn’t used to doing this type of weight cut where you weigh in one day before. In jiu-jitsu, we weigh in and go straight to the mat. So we don’t dehydrate that much water an those things. Of course, I never want to disrespect my opponents by missing weight, but for me it was a learning process.

Ah more UFC outsiders. At least Ronda is a big name and Shayna was already training before wwe. These 2 are absolute coattail riders. Outside of one being Roddy's wife and them being friends with Rousey do people even know who these 2 are? Did they ever win anything in UFC?

Conor McGregor Hints at Potential Showdown with Khabib Nurmagomedov

UFC 224 available for order on Amazon Prime (Prime Video PPV) Former Ultimate Fighting Championship lightweight and featherweight champion Conor McGregor has been uncharacteristically quiet on social media ever since he attacked a bus at UFC 223 media day. “The Notorious” is known for using social media to build hype for his upcoming fights, so it was no surprise fans were excited when the Irish star posted a picture and a video of his recent training sessions to highlight the fact he’s been working on his wrestling game, potentially putting some future opponents on notice. Solid work with phenomenal young wrestler Kosti. Another great Moldovan in the stable.

A post shared by Conor McGregor Official (@thenotoriousmma) on May 9, 2018 at 11:00am PDT While it is no secret McGregor wants his lightweight belt back after the UFC stripped him due to inactivity, the only way he’ll get it back in the short term is to earn a shot at one of best fighters on the planet in Khabib Nurmagomedov.

Mackenzie Dern Refuses to Let Hype or Expectations Get To Her | MMAWeekly.com

“I think if you let the critics get to you or even the compliments — they tell you to only look at the good things but even the good things, I can’t let that go to my head,” Dern said when speaking to MMAWeekly ahead of UFC 224. “I need to keep my feet always on the ground. I just try to listen to the people in my close, close circle. It’s crazy how just from my first to my seventh fight, I made my circle very tight that’s around me. I think that’s what’s going to take me all the way to the title fight and help me keep evolving as a fighter, as a person, to keep me on the right track, to keep the circle of people around me very small.
