Beating the Odds: UFC 211

David Branch made up for lost time, even if his return to the Ultimate Fighting Championship was not as aesthetically pleasing as he had hoped. The former two-division World Series of Fighting champion eked out a split decision over American Top Team ’s Krzysztof Jotko in a three-round middleweight showcase at UFC 211 “Miocic vs. Dos Santos 2” on Saturday at the American Airlines Center in Dallas. A +145 underdog according to BetDSI.com, Branch was awarded 29-28 marks from judges Aladin Martinez and Jeff Mullen. The loss snapped a five-fight winning streak for Jotko (-175), who entered the cage on the strength of consecutive victories over Tor Troeng , Scott Askham , Bradley Scott , Tamdan McCrory and Thales Leites . Branch executed a pair of takedowns, grinded away in the clinch and outstruck the Pole in all three rounds. The 35-year-old Renzo Gracie protégé had not fought in the UFC in 2,263 days. “It feels good to be back in the UFC, but I wasn’t satisfied with my performance,” Branch said. “I would have liked to connect more with him. He was an awkward lefty, [and] he was a lot harder to control on the ground.

UFC 211 Prelims: Illegal Eddie Alvarez Knees Result in No-Contest with Dustin Porier

Rewatch what happened at the end of Eddie Alvarez vs. Dustin Poirier #UFC211 https://t.co/st9wBPfYUh — FOX Sports: UFC (@UFCONFOX) May 14, 2017 A wildly anticipated showdown between two of the Ultimate Fighting Championship ’s premier lightweights concluded in anticlimactic fashion. Eddie Alvarez landed two illegal knees -- referee Herb Dean declared the fouls inadvertent -- in the second round of their featured prelim at UFC 211 “Miocic vs. Dos Santos 2” on Saturday at the American Airlines Center in Dallas. The end came 4:12 into Round 2, much to the chagrin of those in attendance. Poirier (21-5) was surgical in his approach, lighting into the Philadelphia native with leg kicks, body kicks and straight left hands throughout the first round. Alvarez (28-5) seemed to wake up on the second, though it took a near-finish to do the trick. Poirier had him reeling with punches and closed in for a potential stoppage. Wounded and stunned, Alvarez refused to go away. He fought back from the brink, rocked Poirier with a right hand, secured a takedown and trapped him along the fence.

Opinion: The Appeal of Relevance

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. * * * The Ultimate Fighting Championship ’s fourth pay-per-view event of 2017 was without question its best yet. The prelims were mostly exciting, resulting in a rare “Fight of the Night” bonus going to an undercard bout, and the main card was composed entirely of fights relevant to the top of their respective divisions -- an increasingly noteworthy occurrence in this WMG-IME era of ownership. Compare that to any of the previous events, each of which with one or two meaningful fights per main card, and the matchmaking behind UFC 211 becomes a legitimate achievement. It’s hard to overstate the importance of relevance. To some extent, fans will always show up for gimmicks, like the now thankfully scrapped Georges St. Pierre - Michael Bisping “super fight” or to see CM Punk catch a beatdown against anyone on the roster, but the best-case scenario for that type of matchmaking is one-off success.

Bellator 179 Primer: Striking While the Iron’s Hot

When 90,000 people packed the famous Wembley Stadium in London at the end of April, it was a real changing-of-the-guard moment for the fight game. Not only did rising megastar Anthony Joshua defeat longtime heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko to establish himself as the hottest property in the sport of boxing, but he also put his home city back on the combat sports map. That fight proved that big pay-per-view events can happen in the United Kingdom, all while drawing huge crowds and capturing the imagination of not only the locals but fans all around the globe. Bellator 179 on Friday comes on the heels of the Klitschko-Joshua sellout in the same city. The event takes place at Wembley Stadium’s neighboring SSE Arena in London and touches down at a perfect time for the ravenous combat sports fans in the area. Bellator MMA will strike while the iron is hot, doing so with a card full of local and international talent. Two top-flight welterweights take the stage on the main event, as Rory MacDonald takes on Paul Daley in a showdown between former Ultimate Fighting Championship competitors.

The Bottom Line: Promise Fulfilled

It’s predictable that most top-shelf MMA events are going to end up being exciting. This has been borne out time and time again over the past decade and a half. The sport’s entertainment value is one of its greatest attributes, and the top MMA organizations have largely opted for fan-pleasing styles in the way they promote. However, what’s unpredictable is which cards will be the standouts and which ones will disappoint. The wildness of the sport and the number of anticipated fights on each show means it’s harder to select which events on the calendar will thrill and which will sputter. Take UFC 199 and UFC 200 as examples. UFC 200 was the blowout event, stacked from top to bottom with intriguing contests. Unfortunately, a great many of those fights didn’t deliver in the way that was expected. Fight cancellations didn’t help matters, but the final lineup still looked strong and the action was lacking. Meanwhile, UFC 199 looked like just another show but turned out to be one of the most exciting cards of the entire calendar year thanks to stunning and emphatic upsets by Michael Bisping and Dan Henderson , plus a completely unforeseen war between Marco Polo Reyes and Dong Hyun Kim .

Sherdog’s Official Mixed Martial Arts Rankings - Heavyweight

Heavyweight 1. Stipe Miocic (17-2) The top of the heavyweight division is a position inherently intertwined with volatility in this sport, but in his second UFC heavyweight title defense, Miocic managed to avenge his last career loss against Junior dos Santos and do it in brilliant fashion. He needed less than half of a round to knock “Cigano” unconscious with punches at UFC 211 and atone for his December 2014 unanimous decision defeat. Miocic's win gives him two consecutive UFC heavyweight title defenses -- tied for the most in promotional history -- but more importantly, his win over dos Santos gives him yet another knockout over a legendary heavyweight. 2. Fabricio Werdum (21-6-1) If Werdum had his druthers and could choose a loss to avenge, it stands to reason that the former UFC heavyweight champion would want to rematch the man who took his title and humiliated him in front of 45,000 Brazilian fans: Stipe Miocic. However, if “Vai Cavalo” is to get a second crack at Miocic or the heavyweight champion's next challenger -- Junior dos Santos, who shockingly knocked out Werdum in his October 2008 UFC debut -- he will likely have to settle another score first: Werdum faces rival Alistair Overeem in a rubber match at UFC 213 on July 8.

Fight odds: Yoel Romero opens as a big favorite over Michael Bisping | BJPenn.com

Michael Bisping is currently riding a five-fight winning streak and is coming off a UFC middleweight title defense win over Dan Henderson, which took place at UFC 204 in October. Bisping won a unanimous decision over Henderson. Prior to getting his revenge on Hendo, Bisping beat Luke Rockhold by KO in the first round to win the UFC middleweight belt at UFC 199 back in June of last year. Bisping also won a controversial fight over former UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva at UFC Fight Night 84, which set him up for the UFC 199 middleweight title fight against Rockhold as a late replacement for an injured Chris Weidman.

Então que fique claro para o Dana e para todos, que não existe uma questão pessoal, ou briga com o UFC. O certo é o certo, o justo é o justo, não existe jogo sujo. Quem vai para assistir os outros lutadores, não vai deixar de ir. Respeito todos que irão lutar no evento, mas também respeito o questionamento dos meus fãs. . Guys, I want to be clear, I first answered a question from some of my fans about the return of the tickets, because they claimed that they would only watch the fight because I would fight.

So let it be clear to Dana and everyone that there is no personal question or fight with the UFC. The "right is right" and "fair is fair", there is no “dirty” play. Who goes to watch the other fighters, will not ask for your ticket back.

Matches to Make After UFC 211

If Jessica Andrade thought she was the woman to dethrone Joanna Jedrzejczyk , she was mistaken -- and gravely so. The undefeated Jedrzejczyk spent the better part of five rounds picking apart Andrade, as she kept her stranglehold on the Ultimate Fighting Championship women’s strawweight title with a lopsided unanimous decision in the UFC 211 co-main event on Saturday at the American Airlines Center in Dallas. Scores were 50-45, 50-44 and 50-45. Nothing went according to plan for Andrade, who ate punches and kicks to the head, body and legs at an alarming rate. Jedrzejczyk connected with nearly 65 percent of the strikes she threw, according to FightMetric data, and outlanded the challenger by an eye-popping 230-94 margin. The champion was simply brilliant. The 225 significant strikes Jedrzejczyk put on Andrade were a career-high, besting her previous mark of 220 set in November 2015. In the aftermath of UFC 211 “Miocic vs. Dos Santos 2,” here are five matches that ought to be made: Joanna Jedrzejczyk vs. Rose Namajunas : One could make the argument that Jedrzejczyk has become the most dominant fighter in the sport, male or female.

Former Matchmaker Joe Silva to Be Inducted into UFC Hall of Fame ‘Contributor’ Wing

Joe Silva will be inducted into the UFC Hall of Fame less than a year after his retirement as the promotion’s lead matchmaker. It was announced during the UFC 211 pay-per-view broadcast that Silva will be enshrined in the “Contributor” wing during a ceremony on July 6 during International Fight Week in Las Vegas. The “Contributor” wing honors anyone who has made a significant contribution to the sport beyond fighting and can include referees, judges, trainers, commissioners, announcers and promoters. Silva joins Jeff Blatnick, Bob Meyrowitz and Charles “Mask” Lewis in the UFC’s “Contributor” wing. Urijah Faber and Maurice Smith will also be inducted into the UFC Hall of Fame on July 6. “Joe Silva is the greatest matchmaker in the history of any combat sport,” UFC President Dana White said in a release. “Period.” Silva began his UFC tenure before the company was purchased by Zuffa in 2001 when he answered an ad taken out by previous owner Semaphore Entertainment Group in “Black Belt Magazine.” Over the course of more than years in the organization, Silva’s role gradually became more prominent as he progressed from advisor to full-time employee.
