Bravo lol stolen trade secrets. https://t.co/zBt8lJlOGU — Ray Borg (@tazmexufc) May 3, 2018 Ultimate Fighting Championship flyweight contender Ray Borg (11-3) is being sued by his former management team, Wild Bunch Management LLC, according to a report by MMAJunkie . The one-time title challenger is accused of breaching contract, committing fraud and stealing trade secrets.

Ryan Bader: 'I'm In My Prime' and 'I Don't See King Mo Evolving' In His Game | MMAWeekly.com

“First and foremost, there’s nothing but respect there. I wrestled him back in college; he whooped my ass in college. I’ve been competing against these guys like him and Phil Davis since then. He’s done great in his career. Just for me, I just don’t see him evolving through this whole process,” Bader told MMAWeekly. “While I’m in the gym constantly getting better, I’m constantly working hard and going through these training camps, I feel like I’m coming in here in my prime just now. I feel like he’s had injuries, he’s sat out a lot, he’s just going through the training camps just trying to stay healthy and then going in there trying to box or knock somebody out and wrestle some people. He has great wrestling.

Video: Bruce Buffer added as playable fighter in EA UFC 3 – TheMacLife

Not content with merely pointing at the blue and red corners, UFC announcer Bruce Buffer will now be fighting out of them — in EA UFC 3 that is. The Veteran Voice of the Octagon has been added as a playable character in the fighting game, and although players will have to unlock Buffer, once they do he’ll be fighting with the best of them in the middleweight division. Buffer joins UFC president Dana White as an out-of-the-box fighter for this installment of the UFC/EA pairing. Check out YouTuber Martial Mind’s video below to see the new addition to the game. https://youtu.be/BzuDtQvGxo4 (1189) Comments comments

Twitter Mailbag: On Bellator's ratings, Nicco Montano's online rant, and more

Even after all that, all Lesnar has to do is show up in a UFC T-shirt and we all get a happy, tingly feeling. Fans want him back because he’s a walking action figure who reminds them of the late-2000 glory days. UFC executives want him because he brings in the pay-per-view buys. Fighters want him because he puts money in their pockets. No one seems to mind that he’s a steroid cheat who views this sport as little more than a giant ATM he can swing by when he feels like it.

This Month’s MMA Birthdays: Lyoto Machida Celebrates No. 40

Lyoto Machida carried the flag for an entire segment of the martial arts community and did so as one of the Ultimate Fighting Championship ’s most consistent and accomplished competitors. “The Dragon” will celebrate his 40th birthday on May 30. Machida sports a 23-8 career record, with wins over onetime Strikeforce champions Dan Henderson and Gegard Mousasi , current Bellator MMA titleholder Ryan Bader and six former UFC champions: Rich Franklin , B.J. Penn , Tito Ortiz , Rashad Evans , Mauricio Rua and Randy Couture . The Shotokan karate stylist was at the height of his power in 2009, when he knocked out Evans to captured the undisputed light heavyweight crown in the UFC 98 main event before 12,606 fans at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. While his stay at the top was brief, Machida’s reign had a lasting impact on mixed martial arts and showed once again that karate could serve as a functional base inside the cage. The well-traveled Brazilian will face Vitor Belfort in a clash between fading legends at UFC 224 on May 12 in Brazil.

‘King Mo’ Questions Ryan Bader’s Desire to Compete

Former Strikeforce light heavyweight champion and Rizin Fighting Federation heavyweight grand prix king Muhammed Lawal doesn’t believe former Ultimate Fighting Championship 205-pound contender and current Bellator MMA light heavyweight ace Ryan Bader has the desire to compete in mixed martial arts anymore. Lawal and Bader are scheduled to meet at Bellator 199 on May 12 inside the SAP Center in San Jose, California. The bout is part of the Bellator 2018 heavyweight grand prix, with the winner advancing to the semi-finals. Bader (24-5) is currently a light heavyweight but that didn’t stop him from signing up to potentially face much bigger opponents. Lawal (21-6, 1 NC) or as he’s better known as “King Mo,” believes Bader made a mistake by entering the grand prix to fight the bigger guys, especially since Lawal, unlike Bader, has had experience at heavyweight . During a recent appearance on MMA Junkie Radio , Lawal said he doesn’t believe Bader has the same fire anymore: “I don’t think Bader wants to fight anymore.

Eddie Alvarez Not Accepting Fights Until Future with UFC is Resolved

Former Ultimate Fighting Championship lightweight champion Eddie Alvarez is not happy with current negotiations surrounding his contract with the UFC. Alvarez has one fight remaining on his current UFC deal and his agent has been negotiating a new agreement. It seems Alvarez had high hopes of a much improved contract, but apparently the terms he was offered were not even close to what he was banking on. Alvarez last fought inside the Octagon in December 2017 when he came up against Justin Gaethje . Alvarez ran through “The Highlight,” knocking him out with a brutal knee and handing him his first career loss. Ariel Helwani revealed on Twitter that he had talked with Alvarez regarding his contract situation. Asked him if he’s been approached about fighting Nate Diaz on 8/4. He said he has not been offered Diaz for 227. He has long wanted to fight Diaz but reiterated he wants a new deal first. “UFC needs to stop playing games,” he added. “They know what I mean.” — Ariel Helwani (@arielhelwani) May 2, 2018 Alvarez is currently ranked third in the ultra-competitive UFC lightweight division, just behind Tony Ferguson , Conor McGregor , and of course the newly crowned champion Khabib Nurmagomedov .
