The Film Room: Israel Adesanya

Illustration: Ben Duffy/Sherdog.com The undefeated Israel Adesanya will face off with longtime Ultimate Fighting Championship staple Brad Tavares in “The Ultimate Fighter 27” Finale headliner on Friday at the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas. Adesanya has compiled a 50-5-2 record as a professional kickboxer and owns a perfect 13-0 mark in MMA, with 12 of those wins coming by knockout. The 28-year-old looks to be one of the more exciting prospects to enter the UFC in recent years. The latest installment of The Film Room examines Adesanya’s stylings. ‘The Last Stylebender’ A lifelong martial artist, Adesanya has competed professionally in boxing, muay Thai, kickboxing and MMA. While his extensive striking background has drawn all of the attention, he also holds the rank of blue belt in Brazilian jiu-jitsu under Andre Galvao -- one of the most respect coaches in the world. One question always dogs fighters transitioning from kickboxing or boxing to MMA: How will they perform on the ground? However, as seen with fighters like Stephen Thompson , some strikers only need effective takedown defense to succeed in MMA.

James Vick Steps in for Al Iaquinta to Fight Justin Gaethje

Me waiting on Sean Shelby to call me back.. pic.twitter.com/TnTwW9rumY — James Vick (@JamesVickMMA) June 28, 2018 Ultimate Fighting Championship lightweight Justin Gaethje will now fight James Vick , who stepped in for originally-scheduled opponent Al Iaquinta , UFC officials confirmed. The fighters will meet at UFC Fight Night 135 , which is booked for the Pinnacle Bank Arena in Lincoln, Nebraska, on Aug. 25. As reported on Wednesday by ESPN, Iaquinta chose to withdraw from his headlining bout opposite Gaethje. The reason behind his choice is yet to be revealed. Vick was slated to fight Paul Felder at UFC Fight Night 133 on July 14. It is unknown if a new opponent will be found for “The Irish Dragon” to keep him on the event. Vick is riding a four-fight winning streak at 155 pounds and has gone 9-1 since joining the UFC in 2013. In his last fight, “The Texecutioner” defeated Francisco Trinaldo by unanimous decision at UFC Austin. Gaethje will enter the event following back-to-back losses. The former World Series of Fighting champion has been finished by Dustin Poirier and Eddie Alvarez , though all of his UFC performances thus far have been awarded with a Fight of the Night bonus.

I feel like she is more accurate and active with her TKD (and since she won't really have to worry about hitting the mat, may open up a lot like when she took on Hardy). Letourneau has a tendency to wait for that perfect moment that never comes.

Fight Facts Retrospective: Rashad Evans

Illustration: Ben Duffy/Sherdog.com Fight Facts Retrospective is a branch of the Fight Facts series that chronicles the accomplishments and achievements of legendary fighters. * * * Owner of a lengthy and impressive legacy with the Ultimate Fighting Championship , Rashad Evans conquered the second season of “The Ultimate Fighter” despite being at a massive size disadvantage against his opponents.

Evans on Monday announced his retirement from competition. SUGA SHOW: Evans fought 23 times in the UFC and only appeared on the prelims once -- in his final bout against Anthony Smith at UFC 225. Serving as the main or co-main event in over 75 percent of his UFC bouts, he was billed as the main event in more than half of his UFC appearances (12) and featured as the co-main event six other times.

Al Iaquinta not fighting Justin Gaethje at UFC Lincoln; replacement needed

“I don’t know if he tried to get more money, but fighting Justin Gaethje is a tall order. If I’m a fighter, you have to pay me $1 million to fight Justin. And if he thinks he deserves more money to fight Justin, I can’t fight. It’s not personal. I know Justin is a little bit upset, but for me it’s OK. Whoever Justin is going to be fighting, it’s going to be an exciting fight. If you’re going to put a chair in the octagon, it’s going to be exciting.”

'The Ultimate Fighter 27' blog, episode No. 11: Obsessed

This week, it’s all about Joe Giannetti vs. Allan Zuniga , but to be honest, I had no interest in this whatsoever, as my fight with Tyler Diamond was getting closer. It’s all I cared about. After what had happened to me in my first fight, losing my opportunity to become “The Ultimate Fighter” but then getting a second shot, a shot at redemption, I’d become obsessed with having my hand raised. Now the only thing I have any time for is myself. I wish the best for every competitor on the show, but there is a reason I’m where I am, and that’s down to my obsession, my drive and my relentless pursuit to challenge myself, improve, and never give up until I get my hand raised in “The Ultimate Fighter” cage.
