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.

Amanda Cooper calls Mackenzie Dern 'disgrace to all professionals' after botched UFC 224 weigh-in

Cooper (3-3 MMA, 2-2 UFC) has had plenty to say ahead of what’s now a catchweight fight against Dern (6-0 MMA, 1-0 UFC) at UFC 224, which takes place at Jeunesse Arena and airs on pay-per-view following prelims on FX and UFC Fight Pass. She hasn’t been reluctant to question her opponent leading up to the fight, and that didn’t stop after the weigh-in incident.

Kelvin Gastelum Confident a Title Shot Looms if He Can Knock ‘Jacare’ Out at UFC 224

UFC 224 available for order on Amazon Prime (Prime Video PPV) Ultimate Fighting Championship middleweight contenders Kelvin Gastelum and Ronaldo Souza meet this weekend at UFC 224 in Rio de Janeiro, with the winner of the fight likely to be given a title fight against the winner of Robert Whittaker and Yoel Romero , who square off in July at UFC 225 . Gastelum put on a clinical performance in his last fight, when he knocked out former middleweight champion Michael Bisping in the first round at UFC Shanghai in November. It was a much-needed victory for Gastelum, who was coming off a submission loss to Chris Weidman . However, with Weidman on the sidelines indefinitely due to a lingering thumb injury, it seems to be the perfect time for Gastelum to showcase himself as a legitimate challenger to the title. He’ll have his hands full this weekend with the grappling ace Souza standing in his way. Gastelum recently talked to MMAJunkie.com about what he needs to do on Saturday to earn himself a shot at the title: “I feel like I need to beat him and make a statement.

She has to hit 116. I'm sure it's possible but even if she can't do it, she should've gotten as close as possible because some commissions won't allow a fight to happen if the difference in weight is too much. Hopefully someone told Cooper to stop cutting weight

UFC 224 Weigh-in Results: Nunes vs. Pennington Set, but Mackenzie Dern 7 Pounds Over | MMAWeekly.com

One fighter that wasn’t even close to making weight was Mackenzie Dern, who, in only her second UFC bout, was slated to be featured in the middle of the UFC 224 main card on pay-per-view. She, however, stepped on the scale at 123 pounds for her bout with Amanda Cooper. Their fight was to be contested at strawweight, which has an upper limit of 116 pounds for a non-title fight, putting Dern at seven pounds beyond the allowed mark. Cooper was on weight for the fight at 116 pounds.

Ultimate Fighting Championship light heavyweight contenders Volkan Oezdemir and Mauricio Rua are set to do battle in main event of UFC Fight Night 134 on July 22, which takes place inside the Barclaycard Arena in Hamburg, Germany. The event marks the first time Oezdemir will be part of the headlining act and has previously talked about his excitement to get to fight one of his idols in Rua. “No Time” went into his last fight with current champion Daniel Cormier riding a five-fight winning streak, including consecutive knockouts in under a minute. Cormier dominated Oezdemir, eventually winning by TKO in the second round. Oezdemir (15-2) however posted a warning shot to Rua on Instagram, claiming he would be knocking him out in a respectful way. @shogunoficial I’m going to knock you out on July 22nd! Not because I want to but because I have to! #NoTime #withallmyrespect #UFCHamburg A post shared by Volkan Oezdemir (@volkan_oezdemir) on May 7, 2018 at 12:12pm PDT Rua (25-10) has been fairly inactive recently, only fighting once a year since 2014.

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.
