Gegard Mousasi Deposes Rafael Carvalho, Becomes Fifth Bellator MMA Middleweight Champion

Congrats t the NEW middleweight champion @mousasi_mma! #Bellator200 pic.twitter.com/Iv2DIxwrxF — Bellator MMA (@BellatorMMA) May 26, 2018 Gegard Mousasi took care of business and did so with clinical precision, as he stopped Rafael Carvalho with first-round punches to capture the undisputed Bellator MMA middleweight championship in the Bellator 200 headliner on Friday at the SSE Arena in London. Carvalho (15-2, 6-1 Bellator) wilted 3:35 into Round 1. The loss was his first since Dec. 17, 2011 and closed the book on his 15-fight winning streak. Mousasi (44-6-2, 2-0 Bellator) made it look easy, like hot-knife-through-butter easy. The 32-year-old “Dreamcatcher” executed multiple takedowns, softened Carvalho with ground-and-pound and climbed to full mount. Unable to escape, the Brazilian surrendered his back and covered up, with Mousasi cutting loose with right hands until the job was finished. In the welterweight co-main event, undefeated London Shootfighters representative Michael Page struck David Rickels into first-round submission and strengthened his often-questioned resume at the expense of one of Bellator’s most successful fighters.

Gegard Mousasi: By The Numbers

Gegard Mousasi ’s Bellator MMA debut against Alexander Shlemenko was more difficult than most expected, as he suffered a broken orbital bone in their Bellator 185 encounter in October. While Mousasi won by unanimous decision, it was not without controversy. With that said, it did nothing to alter the trajectory of his career. Mousasi will challenge Rafael Carvalho for the undisputed middleweight championship in the Bellator 200 headliner on Friday at the SSE Arena in London. Carvalho has posted 15 straight wins, six of them in Bellator, and owns victories over Melvin Manhoef (twice), Joe Schilling and Ultimate Fighting Championship veteran Alessio Sakara . As Mousasi prepares for his latest assignment, here are some of the numbers that have come to define “The Dreamcatcher” during his 51-fight career: 6: Straight wins since he was knocked out by Uriah Hall at UFC Fight Night 75 September 2015. Mousasi avenged the defeat a little more than a year later. 80: Significant strikes landed on Ilir Latifi in his UFC debut; Latifi landed just 18 as a short-notice replacement for injured teammate Alexander Gustafsson .

The last time McGregor attended a UFC event in person – at UFC Fight Night 118 in October – it caused a swell of controversy with him being caught on video making a homophobic slur after SBG Ireland teammate Artem Lobov lost his fight.

UFC Officials Release Statement On Nick Diaz's Charges For Alleged Domestic Violence - MMA Imports

If it wasn’t clear, I’ve got this guys back if he needs me always and completely. One of the best people I know, and that’s the truth, he just plays by his rules, views the world very differently than most and has been fucked constantly. Seeing how everything evolved here infuriates me. The news is out so better to address than not, and for my own sake, not really on his behalf. I’ve seen drunk guys get in Nick’s face and avoid serious injury because he’s a martial artist and a killer but knows that and he’s passed the point of needing to prove it. He doesn’t even act tough to people… There is no scenario where Nick would put his hands on anyone unless it was necessary self-defense, and then watch the fuck out. Moving on, the girl who is accusing him is the most deranged and insane I’ve met to date. She has been obsessed with and stalked Nick for maybe 2 years now. Suicide attempts, calls to his family from fake numbers, thousand of calls a day – yes thousands, showing up everywhere he goes following his story… He changed his number to get away but Vegas is small and they crossed paths again.

Episode No. 6 recap: 'The Ultimate Fighter 27: Undefeated'

Round 2 – Steele opens with a pair of oblique kicks followed by a classic low kick. He’s relentlessly attacking Mokhtarian’s injured knee, but is walking into some counter hooks from Mokhtarian. Steele lands a hand combination that causes Mokhtarian to put up his hands and wave his opponent in. Steele continues to pepper Mokhtarian with a diverse attack of strikes to keep him guessing. Steele lands a front kick to the jaw and Mokhtarian is starting to get frustrated. Steele connects with some more clean shots and gets Mokhtarian to back up toward the fence. Steele clinches up with his opponent and goes back to working inside knees and high elbows. They break, and Steele lands a nice head kick that grazes Mokhtarian. Some desperation from Mokhtarian begins to come up as he shoots in for his first takedown of the fight. Steele remains calm near the fence until the referee separates the action again with  fewer than 30 seconds left. Mokhtarian goes for a final blitz, but Steele gets ahold of him and burns off the rest of the clock with Mokhtarian pressed against the fence.

Rory MacDonald changes tune, wants fellow Bellator champ Gegard Mousasi before title defense

MacDonald’s post didn’t entirely come under his own volition, it would seem. Mousasi baited him in his post-fight interview after Bellator 200, stating that a matchup with “The Red King” is one fans want to see, but questions whether MacDonald was too “chicken” to do it.

Alessio Sakara: Nowhere Close to Giving Up the Fight

Alessio Sakara is by far the best-known Italian fighter in mixed martial arts, having spent eight years in the Ultimate Fighting Championship before joining Bellator MMA . After a promising start in the Scott Coker-led promotion, Sakara was awarded a shot at middleweight champion Rafael Carvalho at Bellator 190 on Dec. 9. It did not go as he had hoped, as “Legionarius” was on the receiving end of a brutal knockout loss 45 seconds into the first round. “There isn’t much to say because it was a short fight,” Sakara told Sherdog.com. “I took a shot which seemed harmless, but I went blind after that. I started backing away because I was completely blind; that was what bothered me the most. I don’t have any excuses. My training camp was the best I’ve ever had. I felt confident in the cage, and I sought out my opponent. He was the better man that night.” Fighting in the middleweight division took its toll on Sakara. After suffering through a four-fight losing streak, the American Top Team representative parted ways with the UFC and moved up to 205 pounds.

Video: Luke Rockhold Shelved After Suffering Leg Injury

And if that video wasn’t enough for you, here’s another of the stitching. pic.twitter.com/7DNsftcirW — Ariel Helwani (@arielhelwani) May 22, 2018 It looks like fans will have to wait for a bit longer for a fight between Ultimate Fighting Championship mainstays Alexander Gustafsson and Luke Rockhold after Rockhold injured his leg in training last week. The two have previously exchanged words on Twitter after Rockhold announced he would be moving up to the light heavyweight division, claiming the weight class would be easier than the middleweight division. This didn’t sit well with Gustaffson, who referred to Rockhold as “chinny” after his recent knockout loss to UFC middleweight Yoel Romero and told the Californian he’d be waiting to welcome him to the heavier weight class. The bout between Gustafsson and Rockhold had been pencilled in at UFC 227 in Los Angeles on Aug. 4 but was never officially announced. MMA Fighting’s Ariel Helwani reported on Tuesday that the former UFC middleweight champion Rockhold had suffered a leg injury last week in training and posted a graphic video of the injury being stitched up: Rockhold is hoping to return to action by October.

If he did so and won, St-Pierre would become the first athlete in UFC history to win championships in three different weight divisions.
