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 .

Bellator 200 results: Phil Davis knocks out Linton Vassell with vicious head kick

In the second frame, Vassell, 34, came out throwing heavier punches and sitting down on his strikes. That opened him for the takedowns, though, which Davis readily took. Vassell attempted to turn the tables with a late takedown of his own, and although he briefly took Davis’ back, he couldn’t hold the position for long before Davis scrambled free.

Report: Mark Hunt Set to Replace Fabricio Werdum Against Alexey Oleynik at UFC Moscow

Aleksei Oleinik vs. Mark Hunt is in the works for the UFC’s debut event in Moscow, I’m told. UFC forced to move on after Fabricio Werdum was provisionally suspended by USADA this week. The heavyweight fight, which is scheduled to be the main event, is close to being finalized. — Ariel Helwani (@arielhelwani) May 24, 2018 Ultimate Fighting Championship heavyweight Mark Hunt is set to face Alexey Oleynik in the UFC’s first visit to Moscow on Sept. 15. Oleynik was originally scheduled to face former UFC heavyweight champion Fabricio Werdum , who has been removed from the bout after he was flagged by the U.S. Anti-Doping Policy (USADA). The bout was rumored to be in the works after the Werdum was flagged, although now it’s been finalized according to MMA reporter Ariel Helwani via Twitter. The 40 year-old Oleynik (56-11-1) is coming off a victory against Junior Albini at UFC 224 earlier this month and has gone 3-1 in his last four outings. “The Boa Constrictor” earned his name for his devastating ground game and has an astounding 44 submissions in his professional MMA career, including 12 by Ezekiel choke.

Friend defends Nick Diaz in wake of alleged domestic violence incident

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.

The guillotine seemed staged to me. I hate to say that but when he releases his opponent who is "out" he rolls to his back for the landing and then to stomach. Definitely not the fall of a unconscious person. I guess build stars however. Fake it till u make it!

Roy Nelson Eyeing ‘Dream Fight’ with Fedor Emelianenko

Bellator MMA President Scott Coker has confirmed that heavyweight Roy Nelson claimed the alternate position for Bellator’s Heavyweight Grand Prix after Mirko “Cro Cop” Filipovic was forced to withdraw from the tournament due to a knee injury ahead of their scheduled bout in London at Bellator 200 . Nelson (23-15) told MMAFighting.com that he would happily step in if an opportunity does present itself and if not he will position himself to be first in line to challenge the champion down the line. “[The tournament] is interesting,” Nelson told MMA Fighting. “There are a lot of things that have happened that I didn’t see coming. I can’t wait to see how it pans out. If someone pulls out, I’ll step in for them, and if not, I’ll wait and fight the person who becomes the first champion.” As it stands, a rematch with the man who defeated him in the GP quarterfinal back in February in Matt Mitrione is the man he’d like to face considering the animosity between the pair, although “Big Country” stated that a match up with Fedor Emelianenko would be a “dream fight.

Bader has said he’ll defend the light heavyweight and heavyweight titles if he wins the tournament. Still, Davis doesn’t like the idea of waiting forever to fight for the belt, so he’s posed the idea of an interim title, as did Vassell prior to the fight . But he’s also not going to make any demands as to what happens next.

Gegard Mousasi vs. Rory MacDonald Is Bellator's Superfight to Make • MMA News

After the fight, Mousasi didn’t waste time calling out for a superfight against another fighter the UFC let go in the former of Bellator welterweight champion Rory MacDonald. “The Red King” has said numerous times that he wants to fight at 185lbs in Bellator and become a two-division champion, and he might get that chance if Bellator does the right thing and books this Mousasi vs. MacDonald superfight. Considering both men have asked for the fight — MacDonald wrote on Twitter that he wants it, too — there’s absolutely no reason it can’t be made, and we know Bellator president Scott Coker isn’t afraid to book big fights that the fans want to see. Both Mousasi and MacDonald, who is 2-0 in Bellator with dominant wins over Paul Daley and Douglas Lima since leaving the UFC, are arguably the top two pound-for-pound fighters on the Bellator roster, and it would be a real coup for the promotion if it could book this superfight before he end of 2018. This is a fight that the fans want to see and now let’s see if Bellator can get pen to paper and get it done.
