Middleweight contenders offer to step in and fight Rockhold at UFC 199

He is potentially just one more fight away from his long-desired title shot, but now with Weidman out, and pickings extremely slim in that division, Bisping could certainly get the call. Aside from the Brit, second-ranked Jacare Souza, who is coming off a win over Vitor Belfort at UFC 198, is the only name that fits.

Stipe Miocic cracks UFC pound-for-pound rankings

Miocic now sits at No. 13 in the P4P rankings, above former champions Werdum and TJ Dillashaw and one spot behind UFC strawweight champion Joanna Jedrzejczyk. Miocic needed just 2:46 to finish Werdum at UFC 198 for his sixth win in his last seventh fights and second straight Performance of the Night bonus.

Injury knocks Chris Weidman from UFC 199 rematch with Luke Rockhold

Rockhold (15-2 MMA, 5-1 UFC) defeated Weidman (12-1 MMA, 9-1 UFC) to capture the middleweight championship this past December at UFC 194. Rockhold, the No. 1 ranked fighter in USA TODAY Sports/MMAjunkie MMA middleweight rankings, and No. 2 ranked Weidman were set to rematch in UFC 199’s pay-per-view headliner, which takes place June 4 at The Forum in Los Angeles.

Sherdog’s Official Mixed Martial Arts Rankings - Cleveland's New Champ

The Ultimate Fighting Championship has a new heavyweight titleholder. In the modern MMA world, that means we have a new No. 1 heavyweight. In front of 45,000 fans on May 14 at UFC 198 in Curitiba, Brazil, Stipe Miocic needed one beautiful right hook to put champion Fabricio Werdum flat on his face and take the UFC heavyweight crown. Miocic first entered the Sherdog.com rankings in February 2014, and outside of a close decision loss to Junior dos Santos in December 2014, it has been onward and upward for the Ohio native ever since. However, the UFC heavyweight title has long come with a price: no man has ever been able to defend the title more than twice in a single reign, and Miocic is now staring at potential challenges from the likes of Cain Velasquez , Travis Browne , Alistair Overeem or even Werdum in a rematch. Just like Miocic popped up in our rankings in the No. 10 spot a little more than 27 months ago, this latest update sees two new entrants take the final spot in their respective divisions. At UFC 198, John Lineker continued to prove doubters wrong regarding his bantamweight prospects, bashing up Rob Font and debuting in our 135-pound ranks.

New Champ Stipe Miocic Receives VIP Invite from Hometown Cleveland Cavaliers

Newly crowned UFC heavyweight king Stipe Miocic will be a VIP guest of his hometown team when the Cleveland Cavaliers face the Toronto Raptors in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals on Tuesday night. According to a report from TMZ , the Cavaliers officials saw Miocic’s post-fight shoutout to the team and asked him to attend the game, which takes place at Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland. Miocic knocked out Fabricio Werdum in the first round of the UFC 198 headliner in Curitiba, Brazil, this past Saturday to claim the heavyweight title. The 33-year-old Cleveland firefighter, who trains with the Strong Style Fight Team, mentioned the city’s long-running professional sports woes during the post-fight press conference. A Cleveland sports franchise has not won a major pro championship since 1964, and the Cavaliers have never won an NBA title. “I wanted to put an end to the curse,” he said. “I just wanted to go in there and do my job. I didn’t carry the weight of Cleveland on my shoulders but I did want to end the curse.

Opinion: Putting Out Heavyweight Fires

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. Wherever you are right now as you read this, look around. Take mental notes on the layout of the room, where the furniture is, where the windows and doors are and so on. Most likely you’re at a place you’ve been before, and if an emergency were to break out, you’d be confident and deft at finding your way to safety quickly. Visualize how you’d slink down the hall and to the stairs, cutting familiar angles on your way to the reprieve of the street. No sweat, right? Let’s try again, only now the building is engulfed in flames. You can’t see anything because the smoke is thick enough to block out whatever light there is. You’re on your hands and knees to utilize the little remaining visibility, feeling the edges around you to compensate for the functional loss of your primary sense. This also helps to partially avoid the searing heat billowing up all around you.

The Bottom Line: More Questions than Answers on Cyborg’s UFC Future

The Ultimate Fighting Championship and Cristiane Justino circled each other for years, unable to figure out how to deal with one another. Fighting in the UFC against Ronda Rousey was the obvious goal for “Cyborg.” However, she did think she could make 135 pounds, and there were also issues involving money. On the UFC’s end, there was obvious marketability to “Cyborg” but little desire to create a 145-pound division and skepticism about whether Justino would move the needle as much as her management thought she would. The decision to give “Cyborg” a UFC contract while having her continue to fight in Invicta Fighting Championships essentially allowed both sides to defer on any long-term decision. Yet, a year later, the UFC decided to bring “Cyborg” to its main roster. At UFC 198 on Saturday in Curitiba, Brazil, she capitalized on the opportunity. “Cyborg” looked her usual dominant self in a quick victory over Leslie Smith and the audience reacted to her like a major star. So is it all smooth sailing from here, with “Cyborg” finally finding her home in the UFC? Not so fast.

Flyweight Champ Demetrious Johnson Inks Long-Term UFC Contract Extension

Demetrious Johnson won’t be testing free agency waters anytime soon. The UFC flyweight champion announced during Monday’s edition of "The MMA Hour” that he has signed an eight-fight contract extension with the Las Vegas-based promotion. “Mighty Mouse” had two fights remaining on his previous UFC contract but saw no reason to let that deal run out as a negotiating ploy. "I think when fighters do that, they want to see what they're worth, but at the same time, if they negotiate with the UFC, and they get what they like, there's no point going and testing free agency," Johnson said. "And the thing is, even Rampage Jackson said it before, nobody treats you better than the UFC.” Johnson is coming off a first-round round technical knockout victory over Olympic gold medalist Henry Cejudo in the UFC 197 co-main event on April 23, his eighth consecutive flyweight title defense. The Kirkland, Wash., native earned a reported $195,000 — including a $60,000 win bonus — for his work in the Octagon that night. Johnson has lost just once in 14 outings since joining the UFC in 2011.

Oleinik, 38, joined the UFC in 2014 and scored first-round stoppages of Anthony Hamilton and Jared Rosholt in his first two promotional appearances. The Moscow native has won 10 straight fights overall and owns a 50-9-1 career mark. He owns notable wins over the likes of Mirko Filipovic , Jeff Monson , Karol Bedorf and Adlan Amagov . Omielanczuk enters the matchup on a two-fight winning streak, including a technical decision over Jarjis Danho in his last outing at UFC Fight Night “Silva vs. Bisping.” The 33-year-old Pole is 3-2 in the Octagon and 18-5-1 as a professional overall.

Bantamweight Contender Darrion Caldwell Signs Multi-Year Deal with Bellator MMA

Promising bantamweight talent Darrion Caldwell will be a Bellator MMA athlete for the foreseeable future. The California-based promotion recently announced that it has signed the unbeaten Caldwell to a multi-fight, multi-year contract extension. Exact terms of the deal were not disclosed. “Darrion is a fighter who I really think has that x-factor,” Bellator President Scott Coker said in a release. “After his last fight, I looked at our matchmaker and I just said, ‘Wow, this is kid is exploding with talent.’ I’m very happy we were able to get this deal done and I look forward to seeing this star rise for years to come.” That aforementioned last fight came against Joe Warren at Bellator 151 in March, when “The Wolf” dominated and submitted the former two-division champion in the opening stanza to solidify his position as a 135-pound contender. An NCAA national champion wrestler at North Carolina State University in 2009, Caldwell is 9-0 in his burgeoning MMA career, including six triumphs under the Bellator banner.

Por luta e despesas, Gadelha declina convite para conduzir tocha olímpica | Blog UltiMMAto

Próxima desafiante ao cinturão peso-palha do Ultimate, Claudinha Gadelha está em ritmo acelerado para a luta contra Joanna Jedrzejczyk, marcada para o TUF 23 Finale, dia 8 de julho, em Las Vegas, nos Estados Unidos. E, desta maneira, a brasileira declinou ao convite para conduzir a tocha olímpica, que passará por Mossoró (RN) no dia 6 de junho. Em sua conta no Instagram, a atleta da Kimura/Nova União, que mora no Rio de Janeiro, também mostrou que não estava de acordo com o fato de ter que pagar suas despesas para viajar até o Rio Grande do Norte. - Gostaria de dizer que foi uma honra ter sido escolhida como uma das atletas a carregar a tocha olímpica. Infelizmente terei que declinar o convite. Não acho justo que um atleta tenha que arcar com todas as despesas decorrentes da viagem para participar do evento. Além disso, foi dada a largada e estou em camp, treinando diariamente em busca de mais uma vitória e seria muito difícil viajar para atender o evento.
