Preview: UFC 211 ‘Miocic vs. Dos Santos 2’ - Miocic vs. dos Santos

The Ultimate Fighting Championship on Saturday returns to Texas with a card stacked basement-to-rafters with top-notch talent -- so much so that it is difficult to give all of them the attention they deserve. In the main event, heavyweight champion Stipe Miocic defends his title for the second time in a rematch with longtime contender Junior dos Santos , who defeated him in a five-round thriller in 2014. Meanwhile, women’s strawweight champion Joanna Jedrzejczyk takes on the hard-hitting Jessica Andrade in a co-main headliner that will surely produce fireworks at the American Airlines Center in Dallas ( online betting ). Filling out the main draw is a trio of potential No. 1 contender fights. Demian Maia looks to add Jorge Masvidal ’s name to his six-fight winning streak and net a shot at Tyron Woodley ’s welterweight belt in the process. Before that, former lightweight champion Frankie Edgar gives blue-chip featherweight prospect Yair Rodriguez the toughest test of his young career, and Henry Cejudo tries to get back on the winning track against a constantly improving Sergio Pettis .

Gunnar Nelson vs. Santiago Ponzinnibio Headlines UFC Fight Night 113 in Scotland

A welterweight bout between Gunnar Nelson and Santiago Ponzinibbio will serve as the headliner for UFC Fight Night 113 . The UFC’s European branch announced the pairing on Friday. UFC Fight Night 113 takes place at the SSE Hydro Arena in Glasgow, Scotland on July 16 and will also include a strawweight contest pitting Joanne Calderwood against Cynthia Calvillo . The evening’s main card will be televised on Fox Sports 1. Nelson, 28, has won three of his last four Octagon appearances, with his only loss coming to welterweight contender Demian Maia during that time. The SBG Ireland product rebounded from that defeat to score back-to-back submission victories over Alan Jouban and Albert Tumenov in his last two outings. Nelson is 6-2 overall during his tenure with the Las Vegas-based promotion and has finished all but one of those victories via submission. Ponzinibbio, meanwhile, has quietly compiled a four-fight winning streak that includes a three-round verdict over Nordine Taleb in his most recent appearance at UFC Fight Night 105 on Feb.

Opinion: Weight Cutting Matters

Editor’s note: The views and opinions expressed below are those of the author and do not necessarily reflect the views of Sherdog.com, its affiliates and sponsors or its parent company, Evolve Media. * * * As is becoming increasingly common, a high profile fight fell through the week of an Ultimate Fighting Championship pay-per-view card. In this case, UFC 211 lost out on a bout between flyweight contenders Henry Cejudo and Sergio Pettis . On a loaded card where the matchup had received limited hype, it’s not too badly missed, but it did bring up something else. When you heard that fight was off, what did you think was the reason why? At least for me, even before there were whispers of Cejudo looking rough at a media day this week (much less the hand injury that was later cited as the catalyst for him pulling out), my mind went to a very specific place: The weight cut. Ever since the UFC instituted the newer “early weigh-in” procedures a year ago, fighters have missed weight and pulled out of fights a few days out at a higher rate than before. It turns out that the earlier weigh-in (late morning the day before instead of late afternoon to early evening), while designed to allow fighters more time to rehydrate, at least in theory, didn’t work in practice.

‘TUF 25’ Recap: Episode 4

On the strength of Jesse Taylor ’s dominant win over Mehdi Baghdad last week, Team Dillashaw is up 3-0 on the hated Team Garbrandt. The show begins with TUF 15’s James Krause lamenting how he was knocked out by Justin Lawrence in their fight to get into the house. He says he was hit by an illegal knee that turned the tides in the fight and feels as though he wasn’t given a fair deal. Even though he is currently under contract with the Ultimate Fighting Championship , he is out to redeem himself for what happened the first time he was on the show. Highlights of Krause tearing up Sam Stout , Daron Cruickshank and Shane Campbell inside the Octagon ensue and he is amped to be fighting at the end of tonight’s show. The following day, Team Dillashaw decides to make a bear card for their coach because it’s his birthday. Tom Gallicchio , Joe Stevenson and others have been shaving off body hair to glue onto the card and it looks amazing. The team is giddy with excitement when they give their masterpiece to the former UFC bantamweight champ and even though he’s grossed-out by the card, he loves it and is laughing wildly.

UFC 211 Statistical Matchup Analysis: Jedrzejczyk vs. Andrade

After a few weeks without any events, the Ultimate Fighting Championship returns with a stacked lineup for UFC 211 on Saturday at the American Airlines Center in Dallas. In the co-main event, the women’s strawweight championship is up for grabs, as defending champion Joanna Jedrzejczyk meets streaking contender Jessica Andrade . The undefeated Jedrzejczyk has been in a class of her own ever since she knocked out inaugural strawweight champion Carla Esparza in 2015. Since then, she has reeled off four consecutive and dominant title defenses while seldom finding herself in any real danger. She was last active in November, when she took a lopsided unanimous decision against Karolina Kowalkiewicz at UFC 205. She is currently the second-most tenured UFC champion, trailing only Demetrious Johnson in the number of title defenses and the length of her reign. On the other side of the cage, Andrade will look to snatch the crown and extend her winning streak to four fights at the same time. After starting off her UFC career 4-3 in the bantamweight division, she dropped to a more natural 115-pound weight class at UFC 199 in 2016.

UFC Fight Night 113 Gets Joanne Calderwood-Cynthia Calvillo Strawweight Clash

Joanne Calderwood will meet Cynthia Calvillo in a strawweight duel at UFC Fight Night 113 , promotion officials announced Friday. UFC Fight Night 113 takes place at SSE Hydro Arena in Glasgow, Scotland, on July 16 and is headlined by a welterweight tilt pitting Gunnar Nelson against Santiago Ponzinibbio . The evening’s main card will be televised on Fox Sports 1. A Glasgow native, Calderwood will attempt to rebound from a first-round submission loss to current No. 1 115-pound contender Jessica Andrade at UFC 203 this past September. The Invicta Fighting Championships veteran owns triumphs over Valerie Letourneau , Cortney Casey and Seo Hee Ham in UFC competition. Calvillo has made both of her first two UFC appearances on pay-per-view main cards. The Team Alpha Male product submitted Amanda Bobby Cooper in the opening stanza of her debut at UFC 209 before tapping out Pearl Gonzalez in the third frame at UFC 210 on April 8. Calvillo is unbeaten in bouts so far in her burgeoning professional tenure.

Doo Ho Choi to Face Andre Fili at UFC 214 in Anaheim on July 29

Doo Ho Choi will square off against Andre Fili at UFC 214 on July 29. The featherweight clash, which was announced by the UFC on Wednesday night, is the first contest confirmed for the event. UFC 214 takes place at the Honda Center in Anaheim, Calif., and airs on pay-per-view. Choi, 26, is coming off a 2016 “Fight of the Year” performance against Cub Swanson at UFC 206. While “The Korean Superboy” lost a decision to Swanson at the Dec. 10 event, he was able to raise his stock in defeat. Prior to facing Swanson, the South Korea native won his first three Octagon appearances, finishing Thiago Tavares , Sam Sicilia and Juan Manuel Puig inside of a round. Fili, meanwhile, is 4-3 during his Octagon tenure. The 26-year-old Team Alpha Male product last appeared at UFC Fight Night 96 in October, when he earned a three-round verdict over Hacran Dias . Fili is 16-4 as a professional overall, with 11 triumphs coming inside the distance.

Eddie Alvarez and Waking Up Naked in the Classroom

Eddie Alvarez possesses what one can call hard-hat eyes. If he was not pounding people in the cage, it is easy to envision the former Ultimate Fighting Championship lightweight titleholder on a North Philadelphia construction site, busting up concrete with a jackhammer in his hands. He wears a kind of old-school grainy, black-and-white film demeanor that also makes it easy to see him fighting in any era. That is why it was so hard to hear what he did driving down the New Jersey Turnpike the day after he lost to Conor McGregor at UFC 205 in the first Ultimate Fighting Championship event to ever take place in historic Madison Square Garden. Alvarez was stopped inside two rounds, and his 128-day title reign was the shortest of any champion in UFC divisional history. Alvarez admits getting over the McGregor loss took him longer than he expected. “The next morning, we packed a van and drove straight home, and I cried almost the whole ride home,” Alvarez told Sherdog.com, a tinge of trepidation in his voice. “It was weird, because I was in front of my kids and my wife. I felt a lot of things, like I let people down.

Opinion: The UFC's Silly, Stumbling Road to Sanity

Editor’s note: The views and opinions expressed below are those of the author and do not necessarily reflect the views of Sherdog.com, its affiliates and sponsors or its parent company, Evolve Media. * * * In a shocking upset, sanity and legitimacy have prevailed in a high-stakes Ultimate Fighting Championship decision-making process. Yes, UFC President Dana White on Wednesday took to Fox Sports Australia's “UFC Fight Week” to drop the bombshell of rationality: The promotion was done waiting for recently unretired welterweight legend Georges St. Pierre , who has repeatedly stated he will not fight until after October. As a result, his proposed middleweight title challenge against Michael Bisping was on freeze. Instead, “The Count” would defend in the coming months against the rightful No. 1 contender at 185 pounds, Yoel Romero . “I made this GSP fight; we did a press conference. The thing was supposed to happen in July. Michael Bisping is going to have to defend his title now. We’re not waiting for GSP,” White said. “[Yoel] doesn’t need to voice his opinion on why he needs a title shot.

Henry Cejudo Reveals Last Minute Injury That Forced Him Out Of UFC 211

It is with regret that I have to announce I have had to pull out of my fight with Sergio Pettis this Saturday at UFC 211 due to injury. I really want to apologize to the fans and to Sergio Pettis for this unfortunate event. About two weeks ago I injured my hand sparring, and went to the doctor to get it examined after I was unable to grapple or punch. The doctor looked at x rays and informed me my hand wasn't' broken, so I assumed it was just bruised or sprained. I stopped using my hand for the next week and a half to allow it to rest as much as possible, and I had multiple prp treatments as well as an ultrasound in hopes of breaking up any build up or swelling. After arriving in Dallas on Tuesday evening, I hit mitts with my striking coach to get my timing down, and after I threw my first punch, a sharp pain shot through my wrist and hand. My team and I contacted the UFC to see if a cortisone shot would be allowed. The UFC sent me to a hand specialist, and he told me I had a cyst in my wrist as well as a ruptured capsule with the possibility of a tear in the ligament. He informed me the cortisone shot could possibly do more damage than any benefit and told me it would be insane to fight.

Invicta FC Signs Nine New Fighters to Contracts

Invicta FC made a splash on Thursday as it announced the singing of nine new fighters to its roster. The mass signing is anchored by the addition of Brazilian strawweight Virna Jandiroba , an undefeated prospect with tons of upside. Jandiroba (11-0), already holds wins over UFC veterans Lisa Ellis and Ericka Almeida . “Carcara” is a wizard on the ground as well, having submitted nine of her 11 foes, with two-thirds of those subs coming in the first round. Aside from Jandiroba, six other flyweights have joined the Invicta FC roster: Italy’s Mara Romero Borella ; South Korea’s Chan-Mi Jeon ; Barbara Acioly of Brazil; Karina Rodriguez from Mexico; Cheri Muraski from the U.S. and Tuff-N-Uff 125-pound champ Tracy Cortez , who will make her pro debut this year. “There are a lot of eyeballs on the 125-pound weight class right now,” said Invicta FC President Shannon Knapp. “We have a card coming up on May 20 that showcases some of the best flyweights in the world. Being able to add such a talented group of athletes to that flyweight mix will only push the entire division further.

Following the reduction to a three-month period of ineligibility, Gastelum’s sanction under the UFC Anti-Doping Policy is now identical in length to the period of ineligibility imposed by the Brazilian MMA Sports Court on May 7, 2017.”
