The MMA Hall of F@#$%&g Awesome: Drew McFedries

Illustration: Ben Duffy/Sherdog.com Headquartered in scenic Woodloch, Texas, the Mixed Martial Arts Hall of F@#$%&g Awesome commemorates the achievements of those fighters who might not be first-ballot selections for a traditional hall of fame but nonetheless did remarkable things in the cage or ring and deserve to be remembered. The HOFA enshrines pioneers, one-trick ponies and charming oddballs and celebrates them in all their imperfect glory. While the HOFA selection committee’s criteria are mysterious and ever-evolving, the final test is whether the members can say, unanimously and with enthusiasm, “____________ was F@#$%&g awesome!” * * * “Some guys, they like Jiu-Jitsu or they like to wrestle. I like to strike and knock people out. That’s my thing.” -- Drew McFedries THE PITCH: It may be difficult to imagine for a fan coming to the sport in 2018, but once upon a time, there was no UFC Performance Institute where the Francis Ngannous of the day could have the concussive force of their strikes tested under laboratory conditions.

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.

Invicta FC 29: Kaufman vs. Lehner Official Results | Invicta Fighting Championships

There’s a new champion in the bantamweight division as veteran Sarah Kaufman secured the first submission victory of her storied career, choking Germany’s Katharina Lehner in the third round. There was no feeling-out process as the pair exchanged punches in the center of the cage following the opening bell. Kaufman was fluid with her combinations, but Lehner responded with heavy right hands of her own. Round two saw Kaufman secure double underhooks and earn a takedown. She attacked with an arm-triangle choke, but Lehner was able to survive and escape. Kaufman again secured a takedown in the third round and opened up a large cut on Lehner with ground and pound. She sensed the finish was near and attacked the neck of the German fighter. Once the rear-naked choke was locked in, Lehner tapped and Kaufman claimed the title.
