Reports: Michael Page to Make Sophomore Boxing Appearance on June 15 in England

Just three weeks after scoring a second-round stoppage of David Rickels at Bellator 200, flamboyant British striker will compete in his second boxing match at York Hall in London on June 15. MMANytt.com first reported the news, and ESPN.com’s Chamatkar Sandhu confirmed the booking with event promoter David Haye. Page does not yet have an opponent for the card. The 31-year-old Page made his professional boxing debut in October 2017 with a third-round technical knockout victory over Jonathan Castano in Greenwich, England. Page’s opponent fell to 2-12-1 with that defeat. Meanwhile, Page’s win over Rickels on May 25 was his first MMA appearance since taking a split verdict against Fernando Gonzalez at Bellator 165 on Nov. 19, 2016. “Venom” is 13-0 in his MMA career, with all but two of his triumphs coming inside the distance.

Gregor Gillespie Not a Fan of Callouts Following a Win: ‘It’s Silly for Me to Do That’

As so often happens when a fighter earns a big victory in the Octagon, Gregor Gillespie was prompted to make a callout in his post-fight interview at UFC Fight Night Utica on Friday. The four-time NCAA All-American wrestler from Edinboro University declined to make use of the platform after earning his fifth consecutive UFC triumph, a second-round submission of Vinc Pichel in the evening’s co-main event. Instead, as he so often does, Gillespie talked about fishing. “I don’t call people out. It’s not what I do,” Gillespie said in his post-fight interview. “ All I’m thinking about right now is fishing tomorrow and fishing the next day. I’ll be fishing until my training partner fights at Madison Square Garden next week and then I’m going to go and support him. I also don’t worry about winning streaks because guess what, if I lose what good is that winning streak? Some people have suggested my next fight should be at MSG but I like fighting away from home. I like staying in a hotel with my training partners. It puts me the right mindset, just having fun and being a team.

After ‘Miscommunication,’ Yair Rodriguez Says ‘UFC and I Are On the Best Terms Ever’

Just a week ago, Yair Rodriguez was getting ready to test the free agent waters. Now, his relationship with the UFC — which cut him for what it claims was a refusal to accept a fight — is seemingly better than ever. The tide began to change on Friday, when ESPN.com’s Brett Okamoto reported that the UFC had rescinded the termination of Rodriguez’s contract to set up a potential fight between the Mexican featherweight and Zabit Magomedsharipov at UFC 228. On Saturday, Rodriguez released a statement explaining how things played out. The saga took a positive turn when “El Pantera” met with matchmaker Sean Shelby face-to-face over lunch. “I address to all my fans, friends and family for always [being] supportive of my career. As well I’ll like to thank all of those companies showing interest in my persona and work,” Rodriguez wrote. “Sean Shelby and I have a friend in common, Mario Delgado, he was the connection between us. He set up a meeting between Sean and I, where we had a friendly conversation during lunch on Friday.

UFC Fight Night 131 results: Desmond Green outworks Gleison Tibau for unanimous decision

Tibau landed nicely just ahead of the midway point of the final round. But Green came back from it in a hurry, and with authority. He wobbled Tibau and put him on the ropes with his fists. Tibau was bleeding from his nose, but Green let his foot off the pedal and reset in the center with two minutes left. Tibau got a few punches off late, but it wasn’t enough to turn the tide.

Jimmie Rivera Explains Backstage Altercation Following UFC Fight Night Utica Defeat

As far as Jimmie Rivera is concerned, he and Marlon Moraes have no beef. The two bantamweights were cordial following Moraes’ head-kick knockout of Rivera in the UFC Fight Night 131 headliner in Utica, N.Y., on Friday night. The former World Series of Fighting champion even went over to console Rivera on his stool moments after the bout ended in a display of sportsmanship. However, Fox Sports 1 did capture footage of Rivera engaged in a brief verbal altercation backstage with what appeared to be Moraes manager, Ali Abelaziz, after the fighters had left the Octagon. When asked about the incident, Rivera said the issue was between him and Moraes’ management, but that both parties have moved on. Rivera and Moraes have trained together in the past. “There’s no tension between him [Moraes] and I. There’s no tension with the camps,” Rivera said on FS1. “It’s just his management. His manager keeps running his mouth. It is what it is. We let it go.” Shortly after the knockout, Moraes’ manager, Abdelaziz sent a tweet of support to Rivera. But the incident seemed to have occur after that message.

Broken system? UFC early weigh-ins by the numbers two years later

MMA is still a growing and evolving sport with many problems – few of which have an easy fix. The numbers prove the early weigh-in system has not made it easier on fighters to hit their contracted limits, and unless there’s another radical change on the horizon, it’s a topic that won’t go away anytime soon.

Bare Knuckle FC debut delivers plenty of action not for the faint of heart

MMA without gloves would be much more realistic to a real fight. Basic rules, maybe a 30 min time limit with a ref to enforce basic rules. Only a finish wins the fight. If it goes the full 30, call it a draw.

Former UFC title challenger Sara McMann announces pregnancy, putting career on hold

I’ve been dying to tell the world 🤰🏻❤️❤️❤️ The short story: Chad and I started trying after my last fight and that SOB knocked me up immediately 😄 I’m 12 weeks along! The long version: I’ve had bad shoulder injuries my last 2 fights (torn labrum and rotator cuffs in BOTH shoulders). I have to take time off to get healthy no matter what. I’m 37 and I’m getting too close to the time of possibly not being able to conceive. We decided that it was the right time in all aspects. So, yes I will still be fighting. My body handles pregnancy very well and I am training thru the majority of it. Thanks to everyone who is happy for our happiness 😁😁😁 #ufc #pregnancyannouncement #12weekspregnant #beyondgrateful

#happynews @zabit_magomedsharipov Me dirijo todos mis fans, amigos y familiares por su apoyo a mi carrera.

UFC’s Andrea Lee Releases Statement Following Husband’s Refusal To Remove Or Cover Nazi Tattoo - MMA Imports

My comments the day before were meant to just defend my husband not his tattoo. I never intended to make light of the situation, the history of the symbol or dismiss anyone that was offended. The mistakes he made in his youth are not a representation of who he is today, which is a man that loves and respects everyone. Donny was my coach long before we got together, when I first met Donny, I questioned him too about his tattoos and he explained to me about his past and who he was now and how he’d changed. The more I got to know him as a person the less I noticed his skin. I’m truly sorry for responding the other day the way I did, if you think I don’t care I DO! I’m not racist, I’m not a nazi and I don’t hate people and neither does Donny. I’ve always believed in the Golden Rule: do unto others as you would have them do unto you, I personally try to live by that and I tell my daughter that all the time. I Also don’t believe in hating a person for things they have done to you or things they have done, Period, If I don’t like someone. I never ever say that I hate people or a person, if anything I just extremely dislike a person, but never hate.

Jessica Aguilar Speaks Out Following Fight Cancellation Over “chapped lips” - MMA Imports

‪Hey guys! Here’s a little update on the BS that went down today right before my fight. I am super disappointed and heartbroken, this is the second fight in a row canceled. I want to clear things up. The commission had a concern regarding my lips and my use of chapstick during the physical exam prior to weigh-ins so they requested that I be cleared by a dermatologist. So right after weigh-ins the commission rush me to get clearance which I was granted by the dermatologist. But tonight, at the arena, the commission struck again and canceled the fight. You can’t reason with this commission, it kinda felted personal. ‬I am hopeful the @UFC will rebook our fight ASAP.

By the Numbers: UFC Fight Night 131

Jimmie Rivera never saw it coming. Former World Series of Fighting titlist Marlon Moraes put an emphatic end to Rivera’s 20-fight winning streak, as he knocked out the Team Tiger Schulmann representative with a head kick just 33 seconds into the opening round of their headlining encounter at UFC Fight Night 131 in Utica, N.Y., on Friday night.

Chuck Liddell Offers Training Tips During Visit to Cleveland Browns Practice

MMA legend @ChuckLiddell stopped by this week to train with our players pic.twitter.com/1muf0nEmnD — Cleveland Browns (@Browns) May 31, 2018 Not only is Chuck Liddell planning a mixed martial arts comeback, but he’s also been offering training tips to members of the NFL’s Cleveland Browns. The former UFC light heavyweight champion recently visited Browns practice (via footballscoop.com ) to impart some wisdom from his years of fighting. “The biggest thing that we try to work with them, technically on is just body-on-body contact, and wrestling guys and getting their balance,” Liddell said. “The bigger thing that we work on is mindset. Trying to get these guys to treat it like a fight. You’re fighting the guy in front of you and trying to break him mentally and physically.” Liddell put Browns players various drills during a week-long visit to the team’s offseason camp.

A pair of welterweight contests have been added to the UFC Fight Night 134 lineup, as Alan Jouban will square off against Danny Roberts , while Emil Meek will meet Bartosz Fabinski on July 22. The Las Vegas-based promotion recently announced the pairings. UFC Fight Night 134 takes place in Hamburg, Germany, and is headlined by a light heavyweight showdown between Volkan Oezdemir and Mauricio Rua . The 35-year-old Jouban halted a two-bout skid in his most recent outing when he scored a second-round knockout of Ben Saunders at UFC on Fox 28 on Feb. 24. Roberts, meanwhile, was successful in his first appearance of 2018, as he knocked out Oliver Enkamp in the second round at UFC Fight Night 127. Meek began his promotional tenure with a decision win over Jordan Mein but was outpointed by Kamaru Usman in his most recent outing at UFC Fight Night 124 on Jan. 14. Warsaw, Poland’s Fabinski is currently on a six-fight winning streak that includes triumphs over Hector Urbina and Garreth McLellan in the Octagon.

Sherdog’s Official Mixed Martial Arts Rankings - Sweet Dreams

It was less competition than it was coronation. Gegard Mousasi on May 25 laid claim to the undisputed Bellator MMA middleweight championship, as he steamrolled Rafael Carvalho in the Bellator 200 main event at the SSE Arena in London. Carvalho succumbed to punches 3:35 into Round 1, the Brazilian beaten for the first time in more than six years. Now 2-0 since joining the Bellator roster, Mousasi has the look of a fighter who could enjoy a lengthy reign atop the promotion’s 185-pound weight class. He moves to No. 7 in the latest Sherdog divisional rankings, leapfrogging the in-limbo Georges St. Pierre . Mousasi’s rout of Carvalho was not the only event to shake the middleweight division. Former Ultimate Fighting Championship titleholder Michael Bisping announced his retirement after a wildly successful 39-fight career. “The Count” had considered a farewell fight in his native England but decided against it following a violent knockout loss to Kelvin Gastelum in November. Bisping’s departure at age 39 clears the way for Derek Brunson ’s return to the Top 10.

Fight Facts Retrospective: Michael ‘The Count’ Bisping

Fight Facts is a breakdown of all the interesting information and Octagon oddities on every card, with some puns, references and portmanteaus to keep things fun. These deep stat dives delve into the numbers, providing historical context and telling the stories behind those numbers. * * * Once a polarizing figure in the mixed martial arts community, Michael Bisping retired a legend and a lock for the hall of fame. In his record-setting career spanning almost 12 years, Bisping defied critics and oddsmakers alike to capture the belt 10 years after winning the Season 3 of “The Ultimate Fighter” in 2006. With a multitude of Ultimate Fighting Championship records under his belt, Bisping will forever be remembered as one of the greats. OFF THE CHARTS: From June 2006 to November 2017, Bisping competed in 29 bouts, with five taking place at light heavyweight before dropping down to middleweight for the remainder of his career. He fought at middleweight more times than any other fighter in the division’s history. WINNERS ALWAYS WIN: With 20 career wins inside the Octagon, Bisping ended his career tied for the most wins in UFC history along with Georges St.
