UFC Fight Night 131 Post-Mortem: Boom Goes the Dynamite
Moraes and Jimmie
Rivera locked horns in the
UFC Fight Night 131 main event, as the
Ultimate Fighting Championship on Friday made its debut in
Utica, New York. The Top-10 bantamweights had a long history of bad
blood, so it was no shock when they passed on the touch of gloves
once referee John McCarthy brought them to the center of the
Octagon for final instructions.
It did not take long for the fight to play out. A mere 30 seconds
into the opening round, Moraes uncorked a thunderous switch kick
that connected flush with Rivera’s temple and sent him crashing to
the canvas. Moraes swarmed immediately and delivered a flurry of
punches that finished job. In the blink of an eye, a feud that had
been built for the better part of a year came to a dramatic close,
and Moraes was staring at a possible shot at the UFC bantamweight
Afterward, Moraes was gracious in victory, thanking his teammates
and coaches before turning his attention to the winner of the
forthcoming rematch between current bantamweight champion T.J.
Dana White: UFC working with commissions to get rid of early weigh-ins
“So we’re looking to go back to at 4 o’clock when we do the (ceremonial) weigh-ins, that will be the real weigh-ins. The other thing is, I don’t know any fighters that are morning people. Most of them stay up half the night and sleep half the day, so that might have something to do with the morning weigh-ins (being a problem), too. You have to get up early to make sure you’re on weight.”
Holy crap, it worked. 'PVZ's man' will get a shot on Dana White's Contender Series
Vanderford didn’t get the spot on the UFC Fight Night 133 card that he was looking for, but according to ESPN’s Brett Okamoto he will get a chance to show what he can do on Dana White’s Contender Series (via Twitter ).

The Film Room: Robert Whittaker
UFC 225 is now available on Amazon Prime .
After nearly a year of inaction, Robert
Whittaker will make his much-anticipated return this Saturday
in Chicago, where he defends his
Ultimate Fighting Championship middleweight title against
Romero in the
UFC 225 main event. The latest installment of The Film Room
examines some of the strategies and techniques that define “The
Whittaker began training in martial arts at 6 years old when his
father enrolled him in a Goju-ryu karate school. Eight years later,
he earned his black belt in the discipline and decided to switch
his training to Hapkido following a move to Menai, New South Wales.
Shortly after switching to Hapkido, his dojo was transformed into
an MMA gym to capitalize on the rise of the sport, and Whittaker
had no choice but to switch disciplines yet again. Whittaker was
not a fan of the move at first but soon fell in love with mixed
martial arts and decided to make a career out of it. Whittaker had
his first professional MMA bout at 18 years old and amassed a 9-2
record in just three years before being cast on “The Ultimate
Fighter: The Smashes” in 2012.
Sherdog’s Official Mixed Martial Arts Rankings - Magic Man
Whatever was left of the relative anonymity under which Marlon
Moraes competed in the
World Series of Fighting has disappeared.
Moraes won for the 16th time in 17 appearances and planted his flag
as a potential No. 1 contender in the
Ultimate Fighting Championship bantamweight division, as he
disposed of Jimmie
Rivera with a first-round head kick and follow-up punches in
UFC Fight Night 131 main event on June 1 in Utica, New York.
Rivera met his end 33 seconds into Round 1, his run of consecutive
victories snapped at 20.
Since debuting in the UFC with a contentious split decision defeat
Assuncao in June 2017, Moraes has gone 3-0, his knockout of
Rivera preceded by wins over John Dodson
Sterling . It puts the 30-year-old former WSOF champion on the
doorstep to a title shot at 135 pounds, as the MMA world awaits the
rematch between T.J.
Dillashaw and Cody
Garbrandt on Aug. 4. For now, Moraes sits tight at No. 5 in the
latest Sherdog.com divisional rankings.

Coach Duke Roufus says CM Punk has a quality that some UFC fighters lack | BJPenn.com
“Way better,” Roufus told MMAjunkie this week, when asked ho much Punk has improved since his bout with Gall. “The first [fight] is a roll of the dice. You’ve got to take a gamble and see how your guy’s going to react in there and deal with a real fist fight. That being said, Mickey Gall was a very tough opponent. It was a tough first out. But I’m glad he got someone like Mickey Gall because when someone will take the licks that he did and the setbacks and want to come back for more, I know he’s made of something special.”
5 reasons to watch PFL 1 – the start of a rebirth of the problem-plagued WSOF
The MMA landscape is pretty full. To attract fighters, a promotion has to present something a little different. PFL accomplished that by offering some hefty (by MMA standards) payouts in its tournament structure. Fighters who are eliminated in the quarterfinals will earn $50,000, and those who fall in the semifinal round will be paid $100,000. The runner-up in each weight division will take home $200,000, while the winner will bank $1 million. That format attracted a deep pool of talent that includes former Bellator, WSOF and Titan FC champions, as well as an ex-UFC title challenger.

UFC 225's Dan Ige takes lesson in loss but intent on not feeling that disappointment again
But a loss, I don’t think it’s a bad thing. I definitely learned a lot from the loss. I didn’t go out there and get knocked out in 15 seconds. I fought three hard rounds with a tough opponent, and there’s a lot I took away from that fight. I lost a decision, but I gained 15 minutes of experience in the UFC, which is a lot. Not everyone gets to do that. There’s so much I took away from that fight, and yeah, I had to live with that from January until now, and it sucks, but I used that as motivation in my training every day because I don’t want to feel that way again. I want to get my hand raised, and I will.”
