Cody Garbrandt is a serious threat to everyone in the bantamweight division

Heading into Sunday night's card, there were a trio of top bantamweights vying for that coveted spot as a fighter to knock on the door of title contention over the next 12 months. Almedia seemingly topped the list with his 21 wins and 20 finishes along the way. Aljamain Sterling also had an argument after winning his first 12 fights, including an impressive run to get to No. 4 overall in the division.

UFC Fight Night Hamburg

We spend a wonderful night! It was my first time in this event and I enjoyed a lot. The only problem is that the security staff took too long to throw out some bad mannered viewers in the innenraum. We had to deal with two guys and one absolutely drunk girl that were bothering everybody around and the staff just decided to take action during the last fight (Joanna vs Jessica) even though several persons complained. I think this is unacceptable. If there are people who do not know how to behave, the security should throw them in the early begining.

Nate Diaz: Conor McGregor’s rise has been ‘artificial’

"Conor McGregor is artificial ... they pushed him and went everywhere. He didn't get to where he is by whipping all kinds of asses and (expletive)." Diaz told Ariel Helwani on the MMA Hour. "I'm where I'm at because I've been in fight after fight after fight. I didn't do no media -- how many times I been on your show? You caught me slippin,' I didn't do no media. I'm where I'm at because of strictly fighting. Now, he's where he's act because the UFC kicked his ass in gear and put him on a pedestal and blew him up. How come he was such a big deal when he beat Dennis Siver? (Expletive) is Dennis Siver? Is that guy even ranked? ... I don' get no props when I fought Rory MacDonald, the No. 1 welterweight contender and he couldn't finish me. I didn't get no props when I'm fighting (then champion) Ben Henderson ... everybody. Everybody I've fought in the last few years has been ranked 5 to 10."

Cody Garbrandt mocks Thomas Almeida for 'padding' his 21-0 record

"I look for him to come out, put his little Chute Boxe bull (expletive) and he only hurts people standing right in front of him. He's a good forward and back fighter, but I'm a different kind of boxer. I'm a boxer that has finesse, that cuts angles, he'll come forward and he won't even know where I'm at. I feel like once I tag him hard and he sees that I'm faster, he'll try to turn it into a brawl, which I'm fine with. I'm a better brawler than him, too," Garbrandt said.

Having him front and center supporting the most polarizing, bombastic demagogue in recent memory is too delicious and too expected to resist.

Pudzianowski: Fighting the Shadow of the World’s Strongest Man

A long stroll on a surprisingly sunny Friday afternoon in London ended with Mariusz retiring to his hotel to relax ahead of the weigh-ins. He didn’t leave his room again until his team called him to come downstairs to be taken to the Wembley Arena. He waited for the elevator, dressed in grey tracksuit bottoms and a cream-colored t-shirt with the KSW 32 logo embedded in a Union Jack. It was an excruciatingly long wait, as the hotel only had two elevators side by side for all passersby — the stuff of nightmare for claustrophobic residents. On one occasion, Mariusz was crammed into the elevator with nine other occupants. His characteristic frown was even more prominent than usual.

Joshua Burkman Believes Move to Lightweight Could Add 5-10 Years to MMA Career

Joshua Burkman made his lightweight debut against K.J. Noons at UFC Fight Night on Feb. 6, and while “The People’s Warrior” got the unanimous decision victory that evening, the overall experience was not a pleasant one for the 41-fight veteran. “Last fight I hadn’t weighed 155 pounds since eighth grade. That’s the first time I’ve weighed that in over 20 years,” Burkman said during an appearance on the Sherdog Radio Network’s “Beatdown” show . “I think that when I went to Vegas I was 180 pounds…When I got to Vegas my body just didn’t want to go under 175 pounds. I was doing everything I normally do at 170 pounds except for my body didn’t want to cut the weight. So the day before weigh-ins I was still 175 pounds. That night I had to go and start cutting weight, and I was 173 after not eating pretty much all day. It was 18 pounds in about 12 hours is what it was.” Somehow, Burkman tipped the scales at 156 pounds and outworked Noons over the course of three rounds the following evening, ending an eight-year drought between Octagon triumphs.

Former Employee Zach Light Files Lawsuit Against Bellator MMA

Zach Light has filed a wrongful termination lawsuit in Los Angeles Superior Court against former employer Bellator MMA and parent company Viacom. According to documents obtained by Bloody Elbow’s Paul Gift , Light is protesting “certain illegal practices jeopardizing the health and safety of professional fighters and mixed martial artists all for the defendants’ profit and financial gain.” Light, who previously fought for the UFC and Strikeforce in his MMA career, was hired as Bellator’s Talent Development Director under former promotion head Bjorn Rebney. In the complaint Light alleges that Bellator’s business practices changed when Scott Coker become CEO in June 2014.

‘TUF 23’ Recap: Episode 6

Eric Spicely is the member of Claudia Gadelha ’s team who will be fighting by show’s end, but the drama surrounding Abdel Medjedoub is the early focal point. UFC President Dana White swings by the gym and picks the Canadian’s brain to see what the heck is going on in an effort to figure out to do. White and Medjedoub sit down on couches in a side room of the gym. Medjedoub is actually contemplating leaving the show because of the hell that broke loose last week with his wife at home. White decides to let him get on the phone with his wife; she is still demanding that the fighter leave the show immediately or else she’ll leave him. In an unprecedented move, White allows the fighter to leave the house to return home, try and take care of the mess and then return to Las Vegas before the next fight, which will be from Thursday to Sunday. “This is a real weird situation,” White tells the camera. “I don’t want to make him choose between his career and his marriage.” After Medjedoub leaves the house, the scene shifts to Team Joanna at the gym, where Elias Urbina is getting ready to fight.

Lion Fight 29 Weigh-in Results: Nattawut, Eersel Both On Point

Postal Connections: Diaz vs. McGregor, Bellator Lawsuit & Cleveland’s Champ

It’s been another banner week for mixed martial arts news and we have the questions to prove it. Be it Nate Diaz doing his thing or Conor McGregor and the persistent Floyd Mayweather Jr. nonsense that keeps swirling around the MMA world, there is plenty to talk about in this week’s edition of Postal Connections. So, without further ado, away we go. Did you hear Nate Diaz on the MMA Hour yesterday? He sounds like he is part delusional and part Rain Man when it comes to how the promotional business is run. Me and my friends all love the Diaz brothers and I hope he gets paid but I don’t think he is going to get what he wants. What do you think? – Aaron Haha, nice description of Nate. Honestly, the Diaz boys have always had what is, sadly enough, a unique view of what they, as fighters, are worth and the comments Nate has made in the aftermath of his upset over McGregor and the purported rematch mirror those of Nick at various times in his career. They understand that they are the people the audience is showing up to see and that there is a number that makes the hardship that goes into training and competing for a fight all worthwhile.

Former Title Challenger Joe Soto Replaces ‘Kid’ Yamamoto at UFC Fight Night Ottawa

Onetime bantamweight title challenger Joe Soto will step in for Norifumi Yamamoto and face Chris Beal at UFC Fight Night Ottawa on June 18. Promotion officials announced the change on Thursday. UFC Fight Night takes place at TD Place Arena in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada, and is headlined by a pivotal welterweight showdown between Rory MacDonald and Stephen Thompson . A reason for Yamamoto’s withdrawal was not revealed. A Bellator and Tachi Palace Fights veteran, Soto made his Octagon debut in a 135-pound title bout against T.J. Dillashaw after original foe Renan Barao had weight-cut issues heading into the UFC 177 headliner. Soto lost that bout via fifth-round knockout and has since suffered defeats to Anthony Birchak and Michinori Tanaka in his next two promotional appearances. After winning his first two UFC bouts, Beal went 0-2 in 2015, falling to Chris Kelades via split decision and Neil Seery by unanimous decision.

After Breakthrough Win, Cody Garbrandt Seeking Spot on UFC 203 Card in Cleveland

Heading into his UFC Fight Night bout against Thomas Almeida , Cody Garbrandt felt a little bit overlooked in the hierarchy of the bantamweight division. The Team Alpha Male prospect was on the outside looking in of the promotion’s 135-pound rankings prior to his first-round knockout of Almeida at Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas on Sunday evening. Now, “No Love” wants to see some, well, love coming his way. “I feel like, with a knockout win over Thomas Almeida, I deserve to get some respect,” Garbrandt said during an interview on Fox Sports 1. “I wasn’t even ranked in the top 15, but that’s fine. I had to fight a guy to earn my spot. That’s what I’m down to do: to earn my shot, to earn everything.” If Garbrandt wasn’t regarded as a contender prior to his showdown with Almeida, he certainly has more eyes on him now. The 24-year-old was nearly flawless in his dismantling of the previously unbeaten Brazilian prospect. He rattled Almeida with a vicious left hook early then put his foe away with a pair of right hands 2:53 into the opening stanza.

After B.J. Penn 's removal from his UFC 199 bout with Cole Miller due to his IV use in conflict with the UFC's code under USADA, Breen and Stinton discuss Penn's previous clams that IV use was for “wimps,” his claims of ignorance and how it comports with some of Penn's infamous excuses in the past, from an allegedly separated rib in the Matt Hughes rematch to his Greasegate controversy with Georges St. Pierre . The two also discuss Penn as a sports hero in Hawaii, a state which once had a wildly successful local MMA scene but has seen it squelched by government regulation and taxation and how those conditions led to the UFC never coming to the state. Breen and Stinton also compare and contrast Penn with the next generation of Hawaiian talent and forecast some the state's best prospects, from potential UFC title contenders Max Holloway and Louis Smolka to undefeated up-and-comers like Boston Salmon and One Championship titleholder Angela Lee .

Preview: UFC Fight Night ‘Almeida vs. Garbrandt’ - Almeida vs. Garbrandt

The future -- and perhaps the present -- of the Ultimate Fighting Championship ’s bantamweight division will be on display, as Thomas Almeida faces Cody Garbrandt in the UFC Fight Night “Almeida vs. Garbrandt” main event on Sunday at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas. In the co-headliner, former bantamweight champion Renan Barao climbs to 145 pounds to confront Jeremy Stephens . The rest of the six-fight main card features a middleweight battle matching Vitor Miranda with Chris Camozzi , a lightweight scrap pitting Joshua Burkman against Paul Felder and a pair of welterweight bouts, as Tarec Saffiedine meets Rick Story and Jorge Masvidal takes on Lorenz Larkin . Let us take a closer look at each UFC Fight Night “Almeida vs. Garbrandt” matchup, with analysis and picks: Bantamweights Thomas Almeida (21-0) vs Cody Garbrandt (8-0) THE MATCHUP: Ah . . . do you smell that? The scent of violence is on the wind, and Thomas Almeida and Cody Garbrandt are to blame. Between, them, these two 24 year-olds have a near 90 percent finishing ratio.

Jeremy Stephens: Renan Barao 'lacks' heart and mental toughness

"This is the type of fight I want. It's probably one of the reasons why I'm one of the higher paced featherweights," Stephens told FOX Sports. "This is what I signed up for. This is what I love. Coming off the last fight, it wasn't much of a fight. It was so weird and I just didn't really feel like I got to fight. So I stayed in shape and thought maybe I'd get a short notice fight and then they gave me a guy in Renan Barao. It just goes to show the faith the company has in me. They want to see me fight. They want to match me up with the best and they like seeing a fist fight."

Luke Rockhold, Michael Bisping exchange insults in expletive-filled shouting match

"All right, we'll see about that. When you're on the floor and you're looking up at the stars it's going to be '(expletive), I just lost my belt to a guy that came in on two weeks' notice,' took your belt that you worked so hard for on two weeks' (expletive) notice," Bisping said.

‘Regular Guy’ Julio Pena Primed for Lion Fight 29 Bout with Travis Clay

Julio Pena is one of American muay Thai’s most promising prospects, and his skill set will be on full display Friday night at Lion Fight 29. The Massachusetts fighter is 4-0 as a pro and he’s been lighting up his opposition like torches inside the Lion Fight ring. The problem is, however, that Pena is already 36 years old and he knows time isn’t on his side in terms of turning his pro fighting career into a million-dollar empire. But his age doesn’t impede his desire to be one of the best at his weight and to hopefully capture a world title along the way. Pena has scored back-to-back highlight reel knockouts on national TV, and muay Thai fans already want to see the KO artist in against some of the best, though Pena freely admits that he’s not yet at that point. “I never go into a fight looking for a knockout,” he told in a recent interview. “I go in there with a game plan and I expect to do well and I do focus a lot on my power, but I never, ever go in there looking for it. I expect each fight to be a five-round battle. I’m still learning this stuff. I’ve been in muay Thai for about 10 years and I still have a long way to go.

Brendan habitually mispronouncing every major UFC fighter's name on the roster is a nice touch, too. I also want to hear more about Bryan's mad greco skills.
