Michael Bisping Gets Short-Notice Title Shot Against Luke Rockhold at UFC 199

After 25 Octagon appearances, Michael Bisping will finally get his long-awaited UFC title shot. UFC President Dana White announced on ESPN’s “SportsCenter” Wednesday that Bisping will replace the injured Chris Weidman and face reigning middleweight champion Luke Rockhold in the UFC 199 headliner on June 4. Bisping wasn’t necessarily the first choice, but White revealed that top contender Ronaldo Souza needs meniscus surgery following his win over Vitor Belfort at UFC 198 and wouldn’t be able to fight again in approximately two weeks’ time. “The next guy in line behind Vitor Belfort is Michael Bisping . There is no love lost between those two; they do not like each other,” White said. “So it’s the champ vs. the No. 4 ranked man in the world.” Rockhold and Bisping first squared off at UFC Fight Night in Sydney on Nov. 7, 2014. Rockhold won in dominant fashion, as he dropped “The Count” with a head kick and finished the contest with a guillotine choke 57 seconds into the second round. Since then, Bisping has won three straight fights, taking decision wins over Anderson Silva , Thales Leites and C.

Bellator 155 ‘Carvalho vs. Manhoef’ Results: Play-by-Play & Round-by-Round Scoring

Vincent Morales vs. Hamilton Ash Round 1 Tom Supnet is our referee for this featherweight bout. Ash opens the bout with a meager kick to the body. Morales swings and misses with a pair of right hooks. Morales is looking to keep enough distance early for his strikes while Ash continues to try and close the gap. A hard right to the jaw from Morales. Another, but Ash shakes them off. A pair of stinging leg kicks from the Oregonian, forcing Ash to tie him up. A few knees to the head from Ash on the inside, opening a gash above Morales’ right eye. He’s bleeding pretty badly but he’s not yet bothered by it. Ash clinches again and takes his back, looking to take the fight to the mat. With two minutes left, Ash finally drags his foe to the ground but he can’t keep him there long at all. Morales is back on his feet but the Montanan takes him down again, still all over his back. The blood is pouring from Morales now, dousing his knees and thighs in a slick red sheet. Morales eventually stands up again but he can’t shake the lankier Ash off. The round ends with Ash on his opponent’s back against the cage.

MMA’s Greats of the States | Louisiana: Daniel Cormier

Mixed martial artists come from every corner of the globe, bearing a variety of styles. Sometimes, fighters are products of their environment, favoring disciplines prevalent in the country or state from which they hail. Various regions of the United States are considered factories for great fighters, though that certainly is not the case with each state. In this weekly Sherdog.com series, the spotlight will shine on the best mixed martial artist of all-time from each of the 50 states. Fighters do not necessarily need to be born in a given state to represent it; they simply need to be associated with it.

Bizarre Rafael Carvalho Effort Nets Bellator 155 Split Decision Over Melvin Manhoef

Squirrelly judging allowed Rafael Carvalho to keep the Bellator MMA middleweight championship after one of the more bizarre big-fight performances in recent memory. Carvalho was awarded a five-round split decision over Melvin Manhoef and retained control of the 185-pound title in the Bellator 155 headliner on Friday at the CenturyLink Arena in Boise, Idaho. Scores were 48-47 (Michael Bell) for Manhoef, 48-47 (Randy Anderson) and 48-47 (Rob Hinds) for Carvalho. The champion did virtually nothing noteworthy from an offensive standpoint, aside from meaningless takedowns in the third and fourth rounds. Both fighters were scolded for passivity by referee John McCarthy in the first round. Manhoef, 40, picked up his pace in the second and beyond. Carvalho, who seemed disinterested for much of the match, did not follow suit. Worse yet, the Brazilian was warned for a pair of knees below the belt and two eye pokes during the 25-minute encounter. Manhoef (30-13-1, 2-2 Bellator) navigated the fouls, attacked the champion’s legs and body with kicks and mixed in punching combinations upstairs.

The Savage Truth: Making the Most of a Bad Situation

I assume you’ve all heard: Michael Bisping will fill in for an injured Chris Weidman at UFC 199 on June 4 in Los Angeles. I know 18 months can seem like and eternity, but the absolute mauling now-champion Luke Rockhold hung on “The Count” is still as fresh as a daisy in my mind. I can’t help thinking this is a bit of a bye for the champ, but what did anyone think was going to happen when half of the main event fell out with less than three weeks to go? It’s not like there were a ton of options, with Ronald Souza just fighting in Brazil on May 14, not to mention a possible knee injury he has to get checked out. Another potential title contender, Yoel Romero , is on the shelf until June 12, having negotiated a six-month suspension after testing positive for a banned substance in his December fight with “Jacare.” Yet another feasible contender, Lyoto Machida , is also locked up in the United States Anti-Doping Agency dungeon after admitting to taking DHEA last month. As you can see, the cupboard was pretty bare. Enter Bisping.

Opinion: Heavyweight Gold and Short-Term Memory

Stipe Miocic is the man of the hour. The 33-year-old returned home to Cleveland, Ohio, with the Ultimate Fighting Championship heavyweight title in hand after knocking out Fabricio Werdum in the UFC 198 main event on May 14. Miocic now resumes his double life, with a twist. Instead of being a firefighter and aspiring UFC contender, he is a firefighter and the “Baddest Man on the Planet,” courtesy of his newly seized heavyweight crown. While Miocic’s blue-collar story should endear him to domestic audiences and beyond, it should not put new paint on the fact that high-level mixed martial artists, including those in the UFC, still hold day jobs and must rely on alternate incomes. It’s a reality the UFC omits whenever possible. Knowing the guy in the main event also works door security at a bar isn’t a hot selling point. Miocic is the exception, with his noble firefighting pursuits. Look at the UFC’s top stars: Conor McGregor and Ronda Rousey . McGregor’s popularity comes from his lavish life as champion and persona as a cutthroat businessman.

Boxing: Charlo Brothers Prepared to Claim Piece of History

Some of the best fights involving Jermall and Jermell Charlo were never seen. That’s because those fights were verbal barbs between themselves, always one cajoling and pushing the other. They are on the verge of doing something never done before -- twin brothers holding every major junior middleweight title in existence. Jermall (23-0, 18 KOs) already has the IBF belt, which he will defend against Austin Trout (30-2, 17 KOs), while Jermell (27-0, 12 KOs) will take on John Jackson for the vacant WBC 154-pound title. The twins will be two-thirds of the Showtime junior middleweight title tripleheader on Saturday at The Cosmopolitan in Las Vegas. Jermall will have the toughest task but feels he knows how to fight Trout. He has received advice from Erislandy Lara , who beat Trout in 2013. “Personally, all of the awards and being great and doing all of the things we have to do, we were planning on making history regardless when we started our careers,” Jermall said. “I want to put any pressure on my brother, and I want to help him make history. We always work on putting pressure on each other to make ourselves better, but I have to worry about what I have to do; and I’ll let Jermell put his focus on Jackson.

Melvin Manhoef: Winning Bellator Middleweight Title Would ‘Complete My Career’

Melvin Manhoef isn’t ready to call it a career just yet, but even he admits that winning Bellator MMA gold would make for a nice cherry atop a career that has spanned 45 professional mixed martial arts bouts.   Manhoef will  get that chance when he faces reigning 185-pound king Rafael Carvalho in the Bellator 155 headliner at CenturyLink Arena in Boise, Idaho, on Friday night. The evening’s main card airs on Spike TV beginning at 9 p.m. ET/8 p.m. CT, with the preliminary draw streaming on Bellator.com at approximately 7 p.m. ET/4 p.m. PT.     “It means a lot. Also at my age, people are saying, ‘He has to stop.’ This is a very special moment. When I win this fight, it is going to be one of the most special titles because.. I’ve been through a lot. It’s going to be a real special,” Manhoef told Sherdog.com. “It’s going to make my fighting career complete I think because if I decided to stop tomorrow I stop as a champion. It would be great.”   That doesn’t mean Manhoef plans on stopping. Prior to his matchup with Hisaki Kato at Bellator 146, the 40-year-old Dutchman had suffered brutal back-to-back knockouts against Alexander Shlemenko and Joe Schilling .

Opinion: How to Dodge a Bullet With a Busted Neck

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. Chris Weidman is an outstanding fighter with a serious history of injuries, so it may seem thoughtless to suggest that his latest training trauma is any way beneficial. So, naturally, that’s exactly what I’m going to suggest. Admittedly, the injury that forced Weidman to pull out of his UFC 199 main event against Luke Rockhold is severe. A hernia in your neck that leaves you with hardcore vertigo, results in constant pain and screws up the nerves in one of your arms is no joke. Weidman carried the injury through training while popping painkillers and receiving epidurals until it became clear that surgery was absolutely necessary, nixing the Rockhold rematch. Weidman turns 32 in less than a month and the former Ultimate Fighting Championship middleweight titleholder has now pulled out of four scheduled fights in the last two years due to a variety of injuries, from broken hands, busted knees that required double surgery and, now, a nasty cervical-nerve issue.

Sherdog Prospect Watch: Lowen Tynanes

Hawaii has been a traditional hotbed for mixed martial arts talent, and the state may have found its newest star in lightweight Lowen Tynanes . The unbeaten prospect pushed his record to 9-0 with another dominating performance inside the Singapore-based One Championship organization on April 15, as he took a unanimous decision from Sengoku and Road Fighting Championship veteran Koji Ando . The 31-year-old Ando had won six of his previous seven bouts, losing only to Shinya Aoki . Tynanes used his wrestling skills to gather takedowns and sharp leg kicks to pick apart his opponent at One Championship 41. “That was my game plan and I followed it,” Tynanes told Sherdog.com, “but I wanted to finish him, though.” The 25-year-old Hawaiian has won all five of his fights in One Championship and appears to be knocking on the door to a title shot. Aoki currently holds the promotion’s lightweight crown and has not lost a fight in more than four years. “I want to fight the champion, for sure,” Tynanes said. “I’ve been wanting a title fight, and I feel like I earned it.

Bellator 155’s Alexis Dufresne: ‘Nobody Saw the Real Me’ in the UFC

It’s been almost a year-and-a-half since Alexis Dufresne last climbed into the cage to put in an honest day’s work. The Team Quest fighter dropped a unanimous decision to Marion Reneau at UFC 182, which was her second consecutive loss. To add salt to the wound of defeat, Dufresne, who had missed weight for the second straight fight as well, was subsequently released from the UFC. In the meantime, the Californian used her time away from combat to not only reflect on what had gone wrong in her last two fights but to also start a family. Five months ago she gave birth to a baby boy and the miracle of life gave her a new lease on hers. “It’s a life-changing experience,” she revealed to Sherdog.com in a recent interview. “It programmed me to be a lot more dedicated to my life and my career. He’s motivated me even more to get out there and fight to be the best. He is my whole world. I literally started training five days after I had him so I can better provide for him as soon as I could, to build a better life for him than the one I had.

Pat Curran Moved to Blackzilians Camp for ‘Fresh Start’ Ahead of Bellator 155

Pat Curran has been at the top of the mountain a few times in his career but as mid-2016 approaches, the Illinois native finds himself at a critical crossroads in his career. He can ill-afford to lose on Friday when he climbs into the cage against Georgi Karakhanyan at Bellator 155 , but with a complete overhaul of virtually everything in his life complete, he’s out to rejuvenate his standing as one of the best featherweights in the world. Curran captured the Bellator featherweight championship twice during a span that saw him go 11-2 with six stoppages. Among his victims during this hot streak were Joe Warren , Patricio Freire , Roger Huerta , Mike Ricci and Daniel Straus . But after he conquered Straus in their rematch at Bellator 112 in March 2014 to recapture his 145-pound crown, he lost in his next bout to Freire in their rematch at Bellator 123. A loss to Daniel Weichel followed and suddenly Curran went from the pinnacle to the pit. He had lost two in a row and three of four overall and was quickly becoming an afterthought in the sport.

Business Mogul Derek Stevens Hopes to Revive Outdoor Boxing Events in Las Vegas

When Derek Stevens was a kid growing up in Detroit, the Motor City was overflowing with some of the best talent the boxing world. Guys like Milton McCrory, Duane Thomas, Jimmy Paul, Steve McCrory and, of course, Thomas Hearns were world champions from the legendary Kronk Gym, led by Emanuel Steward. It was during these formative years that Stevens knew he wanted to somehow be involved in the sport. When he grew into a successful businessman as an adult, he would frequently fly to Las Vegas and Reno/Lake Tahoe to watch all the biggest fights. He saw Mike Tyson in his prime, Julio Cesar Chavez at his best, a young Oscar de la Hoya ripping foes to shreds and, of course, the infamous “Fan Man” fight that was the rematch between Riddick Bowe and Evander Holyfield. The one thing that struck a note in his heart more than anything, though, was the classic outdoor arena behind Caesars Palace, the site that put Vegas on the map as the spot in town for the biggest of mega fights. But as the years rolled on and with sites like the MGM Grand Garden Arena, Mandalay Bay Events Center and now the magnificent new T-Mobile Arena, outdoor fights in Sin City have gone the way of the dinosaur… until now.

John Lineker, Michael McDonald Booked for UFC Fight Night South Dakota Co-Main

John Lineker and Michael McDonald will lock horns in the co-main event when the UFC travels to South Dakota on July 13. The bantamweight matchup was revealed during UFC Tonight on Wednesday. UFC Fight Night takes place at the Denny Sanford Premier Center in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, and is headlined by a lightweight scrap pitting Tony Ferguson against Michael Chiesa . Lineker has won four straight fights, including two at bantamweight after repeated struggles to make weight at 125 pounds. “Hands of Stone” submitted Francisco Rivera in the opening round at UFC 191 in his first 135-pound appearance before outpointing Rob Font in his last outing at UFC 198. The 25-year-old Brazilian is 8-2 during his promotional tenure. After more than a two-year hiatus, McDonald returned to active competition at UFC 195, where he submitted Masanori Kanehara with a rear-naked choke 2:09 into the second round on Jan. 2. The former bantamweight title challenger is 5-2 in the Octagon and 17-3 as a professional overall.

Abel Trujillo to Face Replacement Foe Jordan Rinaldi at UFC Fight Night on May 29

With Diego Ferreira having been removed from the UFC Fight Night “Almeida vs. Garbrandt” card on Memorial Day weekend due to a possible anti-doping violation, Abel Trujillo was in jeopardy of not having an opponent. Officials from the UFC announced recently that Jordan Rinaldi has agreed to be a late replacement for Ferreira and will face Trujillo on less than two weeks’ notice. Rinaldi, a veteran of both the WSOF and RFA, had at one point lost three straight fights and four of five overall. However, “All Day” kicked things into high gear and has been unbeaten over the last 18 months, going 5-0 in that span with three submissions. The North Carolinian most recently fought in December when he submitted Lashawn Alcocks via second-round armbar. Conversely, Trujillo has won four of five, all inside the Octagon. He’s coming off a stellar performance at UFC 195 where he submitted Tony Sims via guillotine choke in the first. The only men who have conquered “Killa” over the last five years have been Tony Ferguson and Khabib Nurmagomedov .

Opinion: McGregor vs. Mayweather is a Joke, Right?

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. You guys heard the joke about Floyd Mayweather Jr. fighting Conor McGregor ? That was funny, right? Wait, you do realize it’s a joke? I hope it’s a joke. Please, for the love of all things combat sports, let this be a joke. It’s been almost two weeks since the internet caught on fire with rumors about Mayweather coming out of retirement to face McGregor. As ridiculous as it sounded, everyone’s collective eyebrows raised at the thought of two of the most boisterous names in all of combat sports squaring off against one another. Obviously, this was nothing more than a rumor, but with both McGregor and (especially) Mayweather feeding into it, it appears that it’s growing some legs. Mayweather recently suggested that McGregor is the only person he would come out of retirement for and has alluded to the possibility of the fight happening if the fans want it.

10 Questions for Fabricio Werdum

Reality has begun to sink in for Fabricio Werdum . Werdum surrendered the Ultimate Fighting Championship heavyweight title in a knockout loss to Stipe Miocic at UFC 198 on May 14 in Curitiba, Brazil. The defeat snapped a six-fight winning streak for “Vai Cavalo,” who was felled by a right hook from the backpedaling Miocic 2:47 into round one at Arena de Baixada. Having returned to his home in Los Angeles, Werdum has since started the process of picking up the pieces. In this exclusive interview with Sherdog.com, the 38-year-old former champion made no excuses regarding his first loss since 2011, reiterated his hope for an immediate rematch and put forth his belief that his being dethroned was good for the heavyweight division: Sherdog.com: Right after your defeat, many people accused you of having lost focus against Miocic. They said you were more concerned with handing out “happy face” masks, paying homage to Ayrton Senna and having your mother at Octagonside for the first time. Do you think all those external forces were harmful to you? Werdum: A lot of people criticized me, saying I did a lot of clowning and forgot about the fight, but as I said before, that’s my way.

Coach: ‘Jacare’ Souza Has a ‘Right’ to Eventual Middleweight Title Shot

Long before he cornered Ronaldo Souza against Vitor Belfort at UFC 198, Josuel Distak was Belfort’s coach in his title-winning bout vs. Randy Couture at UFC 46. While Distak was proud of “Jacare’s” first-round stoppage of Belfort this past Saturday, the trainer also wanted to show respect for “The Phenom.” “Belfort is a legend of the sport,” Distak said. “Not only for me, but ‘Jacare’ also respects him a lot. As soon as the fight was over me and Jacare went to his locker room to talk to him. It was Samurai behavior.” Distak did not deny that his previous experience with Belfort might have helped Souza’s game plan. “Jacare did everything as we planned. He started to move his head, Vitor moved to the left and got lost. We tied up all possibilities,” he said. With that win in the books, Distak doesn’t see any other logical opponent for Souza other than reigning middleweight champion Luke Rockhold . Souza was offered the fight against Rockhold at UFC 199 when Weidman withdrew due to injury, but the Brazilian had to decline because he needs surgery for a torn meniscus suffered in training.

World Series of Fighting Signs ‘TUF 23’ Cast Member Phil Hawes

World Series of Fighting has signed undefeated middleweight prospect Phil Hawes . WSOF President Ray Sefo announced the roster addition in his "Executive Action” column on Thursday. Terms of the deal were not disclosed. “Hardcore fight fans will know the man’s name, but soon I think everyone will,” Sefo wrote. “…Powerful and quick and visibly improving every day, getting fights has proven difficult for Phil. But by signing with World Series of Fighting, we can promise him fights against stiff competition as he looks to work his way up the ranks.” Hawes, 27, suffered something of an upset defeat in the opening round of “The Ultimate Fighter 23,” as he dropped a unanimous decision to Resurrection Fighting Alliance veteran Andrew Sanchez . Hawes is unbeaten in his three official professional appearances, finishing each of his opponents within two rounds. However, he has not competed since October 2014.
