CSAC Unanimously Passes Significant New Weight-Cutting Regulations

The California State Athletic Commission unanimously passed a 10-point plan on Tuesday in hopes of combatting extreme weight cutting in mixed martial arts. Included in the new regulations are larger fines for missing weight, the introduction of more weight classes and weight checks on fight day. MMAFighting.com was the first to report the new regulations. The plan will officially take effect on June 15 and will be in place for the next major event in the state, UFC 214, which is set for Anaheim on July 29. That card is headlined by a light heavyweight championship rematch between Daniel Cormier and Jon Jones . Some of the key components of the 10-point plan include: • A 20-percent fine on a fighter’s win bonus — as well as the show purse — for missing weight • The addition of 165-, 175-, 195- and 225-pound weight classes and licensing by weight class for fighters • Weight class restrictions for fighters missing weight more than once • A second weight check on the day of the event “to ensure fighters have not gained more than 10 percent of their body weight back in the 30 hours between the official weigh-in and the event.

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.

“It feels like chapter three of my career at this point,” MacDonald said ahead of Friday’s (May 19) Bellator debut against Paul Daley at Wembley Arena. “It’s a big organisation move. Coming off the two losses I’ve had, and the changes I’ve made in my training, I’ve noticed a big difference in my mindset, my physical abilities, my martial art abilities. I’m very excited to make my debut in Bellator and show the changes I’ve made during this layoff. I think it will excite people for future fights.”

Michael Bisping Says Georges St-Pierre Cancellation is News to Him | MMAWeekly.com

HAHA What a joke! Bisping is backpedalling fast as he does not want to have Yoel end his carreer. Man up you mouthpiece and back your word and step-up to the number 1 contender. I was a big GSP fan but he did start to get boring and far too safe as his career wound down prior to his runaway. I am all for him coming back but put him at 170 and at least have a damn date. GSP is acting like a clown and Bisping is a coward if he ducks Romero. UFC is getting dumber daily as Dana fails to force these guys hands now. Strip belts from McGregor, give Maia the shot, make the Bisping/ Romero fight, forget about GSP until he is ready and then give him whatever fight you want as he deserves nothing after 3 plus years. Throw away all interim belts now.

The Walkmen: UFC 211 ‘Miocic vs. Dos Santos 2’

UFC 211 on Saturday was the talk of the town in Dallas -- and rightfully so, as the Ultimate Fighting Championship heavyweight and women’s strawweight titles were on the line. The music that brought the combatants to the cage spurred discussion, too. Stipe Miocic strolled to the Octagon to Machine Gun Kelly’s “Til I Die” ahead of his second title defense, while challenger and former champion Junior dos Santos opted for Bill Conti’s “Gonna Fly Now” in his bid to reclaim the heavyweight crown. Meanwhile, Joanna Jedrzejczyk went with an old staple -- Rena Gosc Gutek’s “Przejmij Ster W Swoje Dloine” -- in risking her 115-pound championship against Jessica Andrade . Parana Vale Tudo’s Andrade hoped Lumilla’s “Chegui” would carry her to an upset in the co-main event. Other standout tracks included Pantera’s “Walk” ( Chas Skelly ), Rage Against the Machine’s “Guerilla Radio” ( Chase Sherman ), Giorgio Moroder’s “Scarface Theme Song” ( Jorge Masvidal ), Notorious B.I.G.’s “Kick in the Door” ( Frankie Edgar ), Jadakiss’ “Jason” ( David Branch ), McFadden & Whitehead’s “Ain’t No Stoppin’ Us Now” ( Dustin Poirier ), T.

Sherdog Prospect Watch: Agnieszka Niedzwiedz

Poland has already proven to be a country that produces top-level talent in women’s mixed martial arts through the rise of Joanna Jedrzejczyk and Karolina Kowalkiewicz in the Ultimate Fighting Championship . Flyweight prospect Agnieszka Niedzwiedz wants to show the world she has the tools to become the next Polish superstar. Niedzwiedz was introduced to martial arts through judo as a means to stay busy as a child. She decided to switch gears at age 17 and shifted her focus to Brazilian jiu-jitsu, training alongside her brother. Before long, everything started to fall into place. “After only a couple of sessions of training, I got an offer to fight in professional MMA,” Niedzwiedz told Sherdog.com, “and I decided that I should try a new thing.” She made her first pro MMA appearance as a teenager and without the benefit of much formal training. It did not take Niedzwiedz long to realize she was meant to fight. “I had no amateur fights or even sparring before my professional debut,” she said. “My opponent rocked me in the first round, but I came back and TKO’d her in revenge.

UFC Set to Return to Japan for Fight Night Event on Sept. 23

The Ultimate Fighting Championship will hold its fifth event in Japan on Sept. 23, the promotion announced Tuesday. The UFC Fight Night card will take place at Saitama Super Arena and will be the third event to be held in the Asia Pacific region in 2017. No bouts were announced. “Our fervent fan base in Japan is a cornerstone of our success in the region and we are thrilled to bring another action-packed live event to the market this year.” UFC Senior Vice President of International and Content Joe Carr said in a release. “Japan has a rich history in MMA and the traditional martial arts, making it an attractive destination for our athletes.  There is already huge interest from both our athletes and fans surrounding this event.” The Las Vegas-based promotion last visited Japan for UFC Fight Night 75 on Sept. 26, 2015. That card saw Josh Barnett take a five-round unanimous decision over Roy Nelson in the evening’s headliner. Meanwhile, Uriah Hall scored an unlikely victory over Gegard Mousasi with a flying knee and follow-up punches 25 seconds into round two of their middleweight co-main event.

Luke Rockhold slams Dana White: Think before you run your mouth | BJPenn.com

When it was announced earlier this year that the next shot at Michael Bisping’s middleweight title would go to former welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre – a man riding a multi-year layoff with no experience in the division – there was widespread backlash. While much of this backlash came from the fans, the most visible responses to the news came from Bisping and St-Pierre’s fellow fighters. And of all the fighters to sound off against this strange title fight, it’s possible that none were as vocal as former champ Luke Rockhold.

Shay Walsh, Alan Philpott to Collide for Vacant Bantamweight Title at BAMMA 30

When Tom Duquesnoy vacated his BAMMA bantamweight title earlier this year, it was a mystery as to when it would find a new home and, more importantly, who would claim it. On July 7 at BAMMA 30, the championship belt will be vacant no more. Shay Walsh and Alan Philpott , both Duquesnoy victims, were the two logical choices for the U.K.-based promotion and they will lock horns for the right to hoist the 135-pound crown. The action will reportedly headline BAMMA 30, which goes down inside 3Arena in Dublin, Ireland. “Regaining my BAMMA world title is my number one goal, none of these bantamweights can stop me achieving that,” former champ Walsh said. “ Alan Philpott is standing in my way and he will be dealt with. My momentum and confidence are sky high at the minute, this is the perfect time to remind everyone of the level I'm operating at and be reunited with my belt!” Philpott has a different view. “He’s had his time, he's slowing down, and I'm only getting started,” he said. “I'm too fast on a bad day, on a good day he doesn't stand a chance.

BJJ lesson: Jean Jacques Machado -- a lapel choke starting from the half-guard by @gallerr

A 7th-degree coral-belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Jean Jacques Machado was one of the big names of the 80s and 90s, winning many an important tourney, including the ADCC. He was victorious in 1999 and then a runner-up the following two years. But here's the kicker: Jean Jacques was born with amniotic band syndrome, so he did all that without having fingers on his left hand. In this video, Machado teaches a lapel choke from the half-guard. #jiujitsu #bjj #brazilianjiujitsu

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.

UFC Fight Night 109 Update: Taleb Gets New Opponent; Grabowksi vs. Colombo Canceled

Unbeaten Octagon newcomer Oliver Enkamp has replaced the injured Emil Weber Meek and will face Nordine Taleb at UFC Fight Night 109 . Promotion officials announced the welterweight pairing on Tuesday. UFC Fight Night 109 takes place at Ericsson Globe in Stockholm on May 28 and is headlined by a light heavyweight showdown between Alexander Gustafsson and Glover Teixeira . The main card will be televised on Fox Sports 1, with prelims airing immediately prior on FS1 and UFC Fight Pass. Additionally, the UFC also announced that a proposed heavyweight duel between Damian Grabowski and Christian Colombo has been scratched from the event due to injuries to both men. Enkamp is 7-0 since beginning his professional career in 2013. The Stockholm native was victorious in his first appearance of 2017, scoring a first-round technical knockout triumph against Frodi Vitalis Hansen at Superior Challenge 15 on April 1. Enkamp has finished four of his wins by submission and one via TKO. Taleb, meanwhile, is coming off a unanimous decision defeat to Santiago Ponzinibbio at UFC Fight Night 105 on Feb.

Means vs. Garcia, Horcher vs. Powell Booked for UFC Fight Night 112 in Oklahoma City

A pair of bouts have been added to the UFC Fight Night 112 bill, as Tim Means will face Alex Garcia at welterweight and Darrell Horcher will face Devin Powell at lightweight. The Las Vegas-based promotion recently confirmed the two bouts. UFC Fight Night 112 takes place at Chesapeake Energy Arena in Oklahoma City on June 25 and is headlined by a 155-pound tilt between Michael Chiesa and Kevin Lee . The card will air on Fox Sports 1 following early prelims on UFC Fight Pass. After their first meeting resulted in a controversial no contest due an illegal knee, Means was submitted by Alex Oliveira in a rematch at UFC Fight Night 106 on March 11. Means had won six of his last seven Octagon appearances prior to his two bouts against Oliveira. Garcia, meanwhile, is coming off a 1-1 campaign in 2016 that included a second-round TKO loss to Sean Strickland at UFC Fight Night 83 and a first-round knockout of Mike Pyle at UFC 207. The Tristar Gym representative is 4-2 during is promotional tenure and 14-3 as a professional overall. Horcher had a rough introduction to the Octagon, as he suffered a second-round TKO loss to top contender Khabib Nurmagomedov in a short-notice bout at UFC on Fox 19.

Report: Ex-Manager Claims UFC Champ Michael Bisping Owes Him $349K

Michael Bisping is going to court over a dispute in which his former manager claims the UFC middleweight champion owes him $349,000. According to a report from the Daily Star , Anthony McGann, who runs the Liverpool-based Wolfslair Gym, is alleging that the UFC star still owes unpaid fees and expenses from a six-year contract signed shortly before he appeared on Season 3 of “The Ultimate Fighter.” Bisping reportedly signed a six-year contract with Wolfslair in 2005 and then informed the camp of his plans to leave once that deal expired. “The Count” appeared in London’s High Court on Monday to accuse McGann of forging a new contract “in order to backdate bonuses and payments made to him from the UFC.” McGann, meanwhile, claims that the expenses were part of the original agreement. “The contract I signed was not that big,” Bisping said during cross examination. “It was to Wolfslair not McGann. It’s not the contract I signed. It didn’t even have my name on it. It was a template.” The case is ongoing for Bisping, who moved to California in 2012.

"When I fought Carlos Condit [in May 2015], that was a title eliminator," Alves said. "Had I won that fight, I would have gotten a title shot.

I lost about 10 pounds of body weight for that, so it's made making welterweight easy and healthy.

Cheick Kongo Making One Final Run At Championship Gold

By Shawn Smith Through a thick French accent, Bellator heavyweight Cheick Kongo can be difficult to understand. Even so, it's not hard to hear that despite his menacing, thick frame, he is a friendly, charming man that is generous with his time and appreciative of the attention. In mixed martial arts' premier division, Kongo has been a fringe contender for over a decade. Every time the punishing puncher gathered a little bit of notoriety in the UFC's heavyweight division, a devastating loss to the likes of a Frank Mir or Cain Velasquez has pushed him back down to earth. His recent run through the Bellator heavyweight division, including four straight victories and wins in six of his last seven, has been one of the best of his career. In an ultra-competitive heavyweight division, Kongo has only put together four-straight wins once before in his career. On May 19 at Bellator 179, Kongo will serve in a feature bout on what promises to be one of the biggest cards in the promotion's history. A win will give Kongo the first five-fight winning streak of his career and arguably put him in line for the Bellator heavyweight championship.

WME's Hollywood-MMA Push: ‘Gossip Girl's’ Blake Lively to Star in MMA Action-Drama ‘Bruised’

Thought the trend of mixed martial arts-related dramas was dying out? Not if the Ultimate Fighting Championship 's parent company William Morris Endeavor (WME) has something to say about it. Monday, it was announced that “Gossip Girl” star Blake Lively would star in a forthcoming feature-length action-drama “Bruised.” The plot centers on an embattled single mother and former MMA fighter who must return to the cage for a final fight while trying to maintain custody of her son. The film, set to be directed by Nick Cassavetes, is being shopped by production sales company Sierra Affinity ahead of the forthcoming Cannes Film Festival, which runs from May 17 to 28. The script, written by Michelle Rosenfarb, has already been pitched to potential foreign buyers in advance of the festival. Beyond the MMA-related plot, “Bruised” has immediate connections to the UFC's new ownership group: Lively, who hit commercial and critical acclaim in 2016 with survival horror film “The Shallows,” which grossed $119.1 at the box office, and Cassavetes, best known for directing “John Q” and “The Notebook,” are both represented by WME.
