Matches to Make After UFC 198

Fabricio Werdum now has firsthand knowledge of the volatile nature of the Ultimate Fighting Championship heavyweight crown. Werdum in his first defense of the title was on the receiving end of a violent one-punch knockout from Stipe Miocic in the UFC 198 headliner on Saturday at Arena da Baixada in Curitiba, Brazil. It concluded 2:47 into round one, with an unconscious Werdum coming to rest at the base of the cage. No man has successfully defended the heavyweight championship more than twice in the 23-year history of the UFC. Miocic was the beneficiary of an overzealous champion. After fighting at a measured pace at the start, Werdum, for reasons known only to him, charged at the Strong Style Fight Team standout and walked into a counter right hook from the backpedaling challenger. The concussive impact of the blow immediately separated Werdum from his senses and quieted a stunned crowd of more than 40,000, a vast majority of them staunch “Vai Cavalo” supporters. In a flash, albeit a brilliant one, Werdum’s reign atop the division was over.

Cris ‘Cyborg’ Interested in Invicta Title Defense, Catch-Weight Fights in UFC

Cristiane Justino ’s impressive Octagon debut is sure to give the armchair matchmakers plenty to discuss in the coming weeks. However, the most appealing UFC matchups for “Cyborg” -- namely, Ronda Rousey , Miesha Tate and Holly Holm -- are all in the bantamweight division, and based on her comments Saturday night, it doesn’t appear that the Brazilian is interested in trying to make the cut to 135 pounds. Justino overwhelmed Leslie Smith in a 140-pound catch-weight bout at UFC 198 in Curitiba, Brazil, winning via technical knockout just 1:21 into the opening stanza. A four-punch combination from the Chute Boxe representative put Smith on the canvas, and some follow-up ground-and-pound clinched the victory for the Invicta FC 145-pound queen. “It was an opportunity to show a lot of fans that never knew, who didn’t know who Cyborg was. I was very emotional. I was walking in slow. When I saw everyone screaming I started to run. I wanted to cry. But I told myself, ‘I can’t cry. I’ve got to go fight.’ The crowd strengthened me a lot,” Justino said at the post-fight press conference.

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.

‘Minotauro’ Nogueira to be Enshrined in UFC Hall of Fame

Former Ultimate Fighting Championship interim and Pride Fighting Championships heavyweight champion Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira will be inducted into the UFC Hall of Fame during a ceremony on Sunday, July 10 at the Las Vegas Convention Center. The news was revealed in an announcement during Saturday’s UFC 198 pay-per-view in Curitiba, Brazil. Nogueira, 34-10 (5-6 UFC), will go down in history as one of the best Brazilian jiu-jitsu heavyweights to compete in mixed martial arts from his era, and was the anchor of Pride’s early heavyweight MMA dominance before the arrival of Fedor Emelianenko . The Bahia, Brazil, native notched wins against Fabricio Werdum , Josh Barnett , Mirko Filipovic , as well as fellow UFC hall of famers Randy Couture and Mark Coleman in his storied career. “I’m really excited to announce Minotauro Nogueira as the first inductee of the 2016 UFC Hall of Fame class,” said UFC President Dana White . “Big Nog is a mixed martial arts legend and, as an icon of the sport, we couldn’t think of a more fitting platform to make this announcement then at the record-breaking stadium event in Brazil.

So, it looks like we’re destined for another reality show-vetted contender for a UFC title. I know, I know, Matt Serra knocked off Georges St. Pierre for the welterweight crown nine years ago in the most stunning upset our sport has ever seen. If you think there is more than the remotest of chances that happens again, let me be the first one to let you know that you can put that one to bed right now. I get why they tried to do the comeback season of “The Ultimate Fighter” back in 2007, the show was still somewhat fresh and they were looking for ways to jazz it up a bit. It was a way to reintroduce fighters that fans had seen before, and who, with the expanding catalogue of shows, were needed to bring name recognition to the cards. They even got the added bonus of a guy who should have lost in the finals going on to defeat the world champion.

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.

‘Jacare’ Expects Title Shot Following Lopsided Win Over Vitor Belfort at UFC 198

After a brief hiccup against Yoel Romero this past December, Ronaldo Souza appears to have clear sailing toward a middleweight title shot following his first-round finish of Vitor Belfort in the UFC 198 co-headliner on Saturday night. “Jacare” was in complete control from the outset, as he grounded his opponent and opened up a cut on the bridge of Belfort’s nose in the early going. “The Phenom” would eventually return to his feet, but rather than trade with his countryman, he elected to pull guard instead. That proved to be a serious miscalculation, and Souza capitalized by advancing to full mount and pounding out his adversary for a stoppage 4:38 into the opening frame. “That was the plan, to totally dominate Belfort,” Souza told Fox Sports 1. “I was quite surprised because he was a little bit slow. I could see his every movement, so I was a little bit surprised by that.” Souza has won nine of his last 10 fights, with his only setback being the contentious split-decision defeat to Romero at UFC 194. It’s a resume that certainly puts him at the center of any title discussion.

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.

The Walkmen: UFC 198 ‘Werdum vs. Miocic’

UFC 198 on Saturday was a landmark event for the Ultimate Fighting Championship and featured some of the most prominent names in MMA history competing under the same roof. The show was anchored by Stipe Miocic ’s crushing knockout against Fabricio Werdum , as he captured the UFC heavyweight title in front of 45,000 fans in Curitiba, Brazil. The card featured an assortment of entrance music. Former Strikeforce champion Ronaldo Souza went with Fabolous’ vastly popular “It’s My Time” before he tore apart Vitor Belfort , who chose Jorge Quintero’s “300 Violins” ahead of their co-headliner. Miocic was brought to the cage by “Till I Die” from Machine Gun Kelly, and though nothing went according to plan for Leslie Smith in her clash with Cristiane Justino , she pulled out a classic for her walkout: “Break on Through (to the Other Side)” from The Doors. There were other highlights on the musical side. Francisco Trinaldo entered to Roy Jones Jr. ( “Can’t Be Touched” ), while Sergio Moraes went with Pharrell Williams ( “Happy” ) and Renato Carneiro represented Bob Marley ( “Cry To Me” ).

Boxing: Positive Test Nixes Alexander Povetkin-Deontay Wilder Showdown in Moscow

The performance-enhancing drug Meldonium was introduced to the American lexicon of PEDs when it was reported that Alexander Povetkin had tested positive for the banned substance in April. The positive test has now resulted in the cancellation of Povetkin’s scheduled fight with WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder on May 21 in Moscow. Though not known here in the United States, Meldonium seems to be quite popular among Russian athletes. Tennis star Maria Sharapova admitted in March that she tested positive for the drug, and a number of other Russian combat-sport athletes, like Ultimate Fighting Championship lightweight Islam Makhachev , have tested positive for Meldonium. The World Anti-Doping Agency placed Meldonium on the banned list in September and placed it on the prohibited list on Jan. 1, “because of evidence of its use by athletes with the intention of enhancing performance.” Meldonium is defined as an anti-ischemic drug used to treat blood flow. It is not approved in the United States, though it is apparently very popular -- and available -- in Russian, Armenia, Belarus, Moldova and Ukraine.

The 2016 BJJ British Open wrap up by @luca

Here I go wrapping up the 2016 BJJ British Open coverage and packing to go back home. It was a great experience to cover a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu tournament again after a few years. At the same time that it was an awesome warm-up for the worlds, it was a great event for itself with over 1650 athletes competing for two days. This time I didn't focus too much in the information that is so important for a coverage, such as who were the champions and how were the matches. It was more about the visual aspect of the tournament. I tested a new camera (the crazily good Nikon D5), five different lenses, and nearly fifty different setups. On Saturday we also escaped to a nearby place where I tested a very cool lighting setup with Braulio Estima for a future article to be published in Gracie Magazine. Unfortunately I will have to wait for the issue came out before I can release these photos here at Gallerr. I hope you guys liked. Congrats to the absolute winners on all belts, and to the organizers who were able to finish such a crowded event in a very smooth way. #BrazilianJiuJitsu #2016BJJBri
