The Sacramento Police Department is investigating whether Nate Diaz committed assault during an altercation with fellow UFC fighter Clay Guida this past Friday, according to multiple reports.

Rose Namajunas: 'If I Say I'm Done, I'm Done' | MMAWeekly.com

“I will say, the circumstances, you have to treat each fight a little bit differently. It being a title fight, it being like Raquel is super experienced. Sometimes, I could tell just watching her train, sometimes she doesn’t seem like the most motivated and every once in a while she gets a spark in her. So those specific circumstances, I could see how that would play out, but at the same time, for me, I’m super paranoid about just the physical aspect of everything. For me, it’s a little bit different,” added Namajunas.

The Film Room: Alexa Grasso vs. Tatiana Suarez

Alexa Grasso will take on “The Ultimate Fighter 23” winner Tatiana Suarez in the UFC Fight Night 129 co-main event this Saturday at the Movistar Arena in Santiago, Chile. Grasso and Suarez have emerged as two of the top prospects at 115 pounds, and the winner of their match will move one step closer to contention in the Ultimate Fighting Championship ’s women’s strawweight division. The latest installment of The Film Room examines their confrontation: Future Queen? Grasso made her professional debut at just 18 years of age, and six years later, she finds herself on the cusp of becoming a legitimate contender. Since she joined the UFC in 2016, she has compiled a 2-1 record, with wins over Randa Markos and Heather Clark . Despite only six years of experience, Grasso has shown herself to be a remarkably technical boxer who continues to round out her game with each fight. With lightning-quick hands and tactical aggressiveness, the Lobo Gym standout is becoming one of the best strikers in the strawweight division. Grasso while patient will swarm for a finish when she smells blood.

Bantamweight Contender John Dodson Nearing New Four-Fight Contract with UFC

It appears that John Dodson will be staying put in the Ultimate Fighting Championship. The former two-time flyweight title challenger has verbally agreed to terms on a new four-fight contract with the Las Vegas-based promotion and will be officially signing the deal soon. Sherdog.com confirmed the news with a source close to the fighter on Wednesday following an initial report from MMAFighting.com . Dodson is targeting an August return to the Octagon. The Jackson-Wink MMA product’s previous contract expired following a split-decision triumph over Pedro Munhoz at UFC 222 on March 3 in Las Vegas. The 33-year-old known as “The Magician” defeated T.J. Dillashaw to win Season 14 of “The Ultimate Fighter” and has compiled a 9-4 record during his promotional tenure. He twice lost five-round verdicts to Demetrious Johnson in flyweight title bids before moving to 135 pounds in 2016. There, Dodson has posted wins over Munhoz, Eddie Wineland and Manny Gamburyan while dropping split verdicts to Marlon Moraes and John Lineker .

MMA Would Miss Michael Bisping

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. * * * Say what you will about Michael Bisping , but the sport of mixed martial arts would certainly lose one of its gamest fighters if his hints become reality and he decides to retire . Even when he loses, “The Count” finds a way to come back and win over fans. The 39-year-old winner of Season 3 of “The Ultimate Fighter” began his career in 2004 and enjoyed a string of victories before suffering his first loss in a split decision to Rashad Evans at UFC 78. As the sport grew in popularity, Bisping never let his setbacks interfere with his thirst to compete. Perhaps that’s why his considering retirement shakes some of us. With that said, no one wants to see fighters hang around longer than they should. Many fighters are afforded opportunities to avenge their losses, but few excel at it the way Bisping has throughout his career.

Matt Mitrione Wants Fedor Rematch in Russia for Bellator Heavyweight Grand Prix Final

Matt Mitrione has a vision of how he would like the Bellator heavyweight grand prix to unfold. “The Ultimate Fighter 10” veteran will square off against light heavyweight champion Ryan Bader in one semifinal, while Fedor Emelianenko will lock horns with Chael Sonnen in the other half of the bracket. A rematch in hostile territory would be Mitrione’s ideal scenario for the final round. “After I beat Bader, if Fedor is lucky enough to get by Chael, I want to fight Fedor in Moscow,” Mitrione said during a Facebook Live chat . “I want to fight him. I want to put hands on him. On Christmas, like ‘Rocky.’ Let’s duplicate this s--t.” Mitrione and Emelianenko initially fought Bellator 180 last June. Following a rare double knockdown in the bout’s opening moments, Mitrione was able to beat “The Last Emperor” to his feet, sprawl on a takedown and finish his opponent with a flurry of punches at the 1:14 mark of round one. For now, though, “Meathead” has more pressing matters to handle in Bader, who is coming off a 15-second knockout of Muhammed Lawal at Bellator 199.

The divisional rankings put a particular emphasis on recent results, while a fighter’s career, particularly if he or she has fought in multiple weight classes, adds considerable weight to the pound-for-pound ranking.

Felice Herrig Goes Off After Learning Mackenzie Dern Just Got Top UFC Ranking - MMA Imports

I’m going to weigh in on the @ufc #strawweight rankings with at least 7.5lbs of factual perspective: 1- For the most part 1-5 are pretty accurate across all weight divisions, but after that the rankings are a crap shoot. 2- These days hype trains seem to be gifted rankings over actually having to fight to the top. 3- #McenzieDern misses weight by 7.5 pounds, which makes her closer to a #Flyweight than strawweight. She beats an unranked fighter and takes @angieoverkill well earned #15 spot when her only actual win in the ufc as a #straweight was to #Ashleyyoder. McEnzie won by a very close split decision, while Angela won unanimously. So why does Angela get bumped?? 4- Justine Kish isn’t even in the top 15, although she beat #14 #NinaAnsaroff unanimously and #11 #RandaMarkos. Justine did move up to Flyweight but so did #calderwood. So why is Calderwood even in the rankings anymore? 5- If #waterson is #7 & I’m #8 then 9,10 & 11 are all out of order… 6- I beat #Grasso unanimous decision , I beat #casey split. Waterson beats casey split decision. Casey finishes Markos, while Grasso takes her to split.

UFC Hamburg Update: WSOF, KSW Vet Abu Azaitar to Make Debut vs. Vitor Miranda on July 22

Abu Azaitar will make his Octagon debut against Vitor Miranda in a middleweight bout at UFC Fight Night 134 in Hamburg, Germany.

Flyweights Emily Ducote, Veta Arteaga to Clash at Bellator 202 in Oklahoma

Emily Ducote and Veta Arteaga will square off in a women’s flyweight bout at Bellator 202 in Thackerville, Okla., on July 13. Promotion officials recently confirmed the pairing to the Idaho Press-Tribune . Bellator 202 takes place at the WinStar World Casino and Resort and is headlined by a women’s featherweight title tilt between Julia Budd and Talita Nogueira . The evening’s main card will be televised on Paramount Network at 9 p.m. ET/8 p.m. CT. Ducote enters the matchup on a two-fight skid. She challenged for the promotion’s inaugural 125-pound belt at Bellator 186, losing to Ilima-Lei Macfarlane via fifth-round submission this past November. In her most recent outing, “Gordinha” dropped a split verdict to Kristina Williams at Bellator 195. The 24-year-old is 4-3 during her promotional tenure and 6-4 as a professional overall.

Bellator 199 Draws Combined Audience of 605,000 to Paramount Network, CMT

Bellator 199 attracted a combined viewership of 605,000 to Paramount Network and CMT, according to ShowBuzz Daily . The event drew 453,000 viewers to Paramount and 152,000 to CMT for a card that was headlined by the final heavyweight grand prix quarterfinal between Ryan Bader and Muhammed Lawal . Bader won the main event at the SAP Center in San Jose, Calif., via knockout just 15 seconds into the opening stanza. The card also included the debut of former UFC welterweight title challenger Jon Fitch , who outpointed Paul Daley in the evening’s co-main event as well as the fourth professional appearance for bluechip prospect Aaron Pico , who knocked out Lee Morrison in 70 seconds. Still, the event represented a step down from Bellator 198, which attracted 581,000 viewers to Paramount and 169,000 to CMT for a combined audience of 750,000. That card was headlined by a heavyweight grand prix contest pitting Fedor Emelianenko against Frank Mir . Bellator 199 went head-to-head with some stiff combat sports competition on Saturday night, however.
