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.

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.”

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.

Assuncao outpoints Moraes, Carlos Junior earns sub

ASSUNCAO vs. MORAES No. 3-ranked bantamweight contender Raphael Assuncao spoiled the UFC debut of highly-regarded Marlon Moraes Saturday night, snapping his countryman’s 13-fight winning streak via split decision in UFC 212 prelim action at Jeunesse Arena in Rio de Janeiro. Scores were 30-27, 29-28 and 28-29. The first round was largely tactical, with Moraes’ superior speed allowing him to take the lead behind his sharp striking. Assuncao wasn’t far behind though, and he closed the gap considerably when he landed two flush right hands in the closing seconds of the frame. The second stanza may have been even closer, with each fighter having his moments as the bout remained standing for the middle five minutes. It was Moraes pushing the pace in the final round, though, with a closing barrage of kicks seemingly allowing him to take the round, but not the fight. Recife’s Assuncao moves to 25-5 with the win; Rio de Janeiro’s Moraes falls to 18-5-1.

Replay! UFC Fighter Erupts Brazilian Crowd With Post-Fight Interview

UFC’s Brian Kelleher earned an impressive victory at Saturday’s UFC 214. The mixed martial artist submitted Iuri Alcantara in front of his opponent’s home crowd in Brazil. However, the crowd were not truly off of their feet until Kelleher provided his post-fight interview. After defeating Alcantara, Kelleher was met with a roaring crowd of boos. The fighter made a shout out to UFC President Dana White. “Dana, that’s No. 13 in a row. I just took No. 13 out. I want a top 10 guy. I don’t want this slow pace. Feed me to the sharks. I’m ready.” He said. The fighter also spurred on the crowd by mimicking, in Portuguese, the infamous “you’re gonna die”chant, while adding a lengthy “shhhh” to the statement. The fighter’s post-fight interview can be seen below.

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.
