Claudia Gadelha: Nobody But Joanna Jedrzejczyk is a Challenge for Me at Strawweight

Two of the last three strawweight title challengers squared off at UFC 212 on Saturday night, and the end result wasn’t very competitive. Claudia Gadelha made short work of Karolina Kowalkiewicz in Rio de Janeiro, submitting her Polish foe with a rear-naked choke 3:03 into round one. For Gadelha, the victory arrived because she was willing to leave the comfort zone of her longtime training home of Nova Uniao. That was far from easy. “I feel great. Like I’ve been saying, I’ve changed a lot. And I had to challenge myself for that,” Gadelha said on Fox Sports 1. “It wasn’t easy. It was very hard. I had eight weeks camp in Albuquerque. I missed my family. I had to do that to become the new Claudia.” Gadelha initially relocated to Luttrell-Yee MMA in Albuquerque, N.M., prior to a unanimous decision win over Cortney Casey at UFC Fight Night 100 this past November. In addition to working with coaches Chris Luttrell and Ray Yee, Gadelha supplemented her training at the renowned Jackson-Wink MMA gym. Leaving Brazil and Nova Uniao was essential to her growth, Gadelha said.

“When I was told about being inducted into the UFC Hall of Fame, my first reaction was surprise,” Sakuraba said. “I stepped into the Octagon 20 years ago and I never could have dreamed that one day I would be invited to join other legends in the UFC Hall of Fame. It has always been my mission, not only to become the best, but to show the world the excitement and glory of MMA. In the process, if I’ve somehow influenced the sport of MMA, it was never in my power to do it alone. I couldn’t have achieved anything without my esteemed opponents, without staff who make events happen, without media who tell our stories, and, most importantly, without the support of the amazing fans. It is my wish to share this honor with everyone in the Japanese martial arts world that, through PRIDE, helped establish a new era in fighting sport.”

UFC 212: By the Numbers

It’s a new era in the Ultimate Fighting Championship ’s featherweight division. Max Holloway unified the 145-pound championship in emphatic fashion on Saturday night, as he vanquished Jose Aldo via third-round technical knockout in the UFC 212 headliner in Rio de Janeiro. Holloway started slowly but gained momentum as the fight progressed. The Hawaiian found an opening in round three when he dropped his opponent with a two-punch combination and then finished the contest with a relentless barrage of ground-and-pound at the 4:13 mark of the period. The facts and figures only provide further evidence that Holloway is the unquestioned king of the division. Here is a by-the-numbers look at UFC 212, with statistics courtesy of FightMetric.com. 11: Consecutive victories for Holloway, tying him with Royce Gracie for the fifth-longest winning streak in UFC history. Only Anderson Silva (16), Jon Jones (13), Demetrious Johnson (12) and St. Pierre (12) have accumulated longer winning streaks in the Octagon. 57: Significant strikes by which Holloway outlanded Aldo in the decisive third round of their championship fight.

Adonis Stevenson Obliterates Fonfara in Rematch to Retain 175-Pound Title

Boom, stoppage. @AdonisSuperman takes down @andrzej_fonfara in round 2 via TKO. #StevensonFonfara2 pic.twitter.com/EUP0oCOV0I — SHOWTIME Boxing (@ShowtimeBoxing) June 4, 2017 Adonis Stevenson vowed to turn Andrzej Fonfara into minced meet in their rematch on Saturday night and he did. “Superman” electrified his hometown fans at the Bell Centre in Montreal as he flattened the Polish challenger in the second round and he made it look rather easy. Stevenson (29-1, 24 KOs) dropped Fonfara in the opening frame with a blistering combo to the head and nearly took him out moments later. Fanfara (29-5, 17 KOs) was resilient enough to hang on and continue, but his fortunes never improved. Stevenson, sensing an early stoppage, swarmed his foe and unloaded a whirlwind of punishment to the head and body as soon as the following frame began, so much so that Fonfara’s trainer Virgil Hunter had to throw in the towel. The official time of the TKO was just 28 ticks into the second round to retain his WBC light heavyweight title. Now the boxing world awaits to see if he’ll fight the winner of Andre Ward and Sergey Kovalev later this month.

Matches to Make After UFC 212

Jose Aldo was removed from power and forcefully so. Max Holloway became the third undisputed featherweight titleholder in Ultimate Fighting Championship history, as he disposed of Aldo with punches in the third round of their UFC 212 main event on Saturday at Jeunesse Arena in Rio de Janeiro. Holloway drew the curtain 4:13 into Round 3, as he took his place on the throne at 145 pounds. Aldo fought well in spurts: According to preliminary FightMetric data, he outlanded the Hawaiian in each of the first two rounds, 19-12 in the first and 29-28 in the second. However, he holstered one of his most trusted and devastating weapons, the 30-year-old Nova Uniao standout throwing only one leg kick across more than 14 minutes of combat. Holloway decked him with a two-punch combination in the third round, climbed into top position and cut loose with ground-and-pound -- he paused briefly for an attempt at a rear-naked choke -- until referee John McCarthy intervened. In the aftermath of UFC 212 “Aldo vs. Holloway,” here are five matches that ought to be made: Max Holloway vs.

Chagas eats a short right hook, then lights up Wallhead with a sharp four-punch combination. Wallhead tries another poor shot from way out; Chagas keeps it standing and throws a front kick into the judoka's breadbasket. Left hook from Chagas, now a right, followed by high knee to the face as the Brazilian closes out the round with a strong final minute.

Cub Swanson explains why he, not Frankie Edgar, should get new champ Max Holloway next

Unless another unforeseen option arises, Swanson is one of two legitimate candidates to challenge Holloway for the belt next. That means he has a good chance at getting the assignment, but if he hopes Holloway is going to help his cause, he’s sorely mistaken. The Hawaiian champ said he’s prepared to take on all comers, and whether it’s Swanson or Edgar, he’s certain the belt won’t be taken from him.

Cat Zingano Talks Recent ‘medical bulls**t’

“I think I can beat her right now, but if there is a more optimal level I can perform at, we all want me to reach that level. I think we all know I am the only one that can potentially take this chick any day, any time, when I’m 100 percent healthy and happy. But don’t worry, it’s coming, and I want it. This isn’t a fight you go into with the medical (expletive) I have, and the UFC knows I’m capable and it’s probable. It’s a different life problem with Cyborg, but one I have the solution to. I had to be smart about this fight, which means taking care of a few things first, but I’m in.”
