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 the 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 to Raphael Assuncao in June 2017, Moraes has gone 3-0, his knockout of Rivera preceded by wins over John Dodson and Aljamain 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. Meanwhile, four-time NCAA All-American wrestler Gregor Gillespie moved to 12-0 overall and 5-0 inside the Octagon, as he submitted Vinc Pichel with an arm-triangle choke in the second round of the UFC Fight Night “Rivera vs.

5 Things You Might Not Know About Yoel Romero

UFC 225 is now available on Amazon Prime . Yoel Romero had long hoped to fight for the Ultimate Fighting Championship middleweight crown. On June 9 in Chicago, all his aspirations and hard work may just come to fruition as he takes on Robert Whittaker for the middleweight championship of the world at UFC 225 . At 41, Yoel may be staring at his last shot at becoming the undisputed champion. Whittaker has already stated that this is the fight that will show Romero’s age, but something this author that the Cuban has other things in mind. Here are five things you might not know about the “Soldier of God.” He has proven his worth inside and outside of the Summer Games. We already know he medaled in the Olympics. But Yoel’s wrestling prowess stretches outside the realms of the Olympiad. Representing his home country Cuba, he competed and won in other international wrestling tournaments and invitationals like the World Wrestling Championships, Pan American Games, FILA Wrestling World Championships, and the Grand Prix of Germany. He has defeated several world champions and Olympic gold medalists, and is acknowledged as having one of the best if not the richest amateur wrestling background on the entire UFC roster.

UFC Fight Night 131 Post-Mortem: Boom Goes the Dynamite

Marlon 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 title. 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.”

UFC Bantamweight Contender Aljamain Sterling Wants Dominick Cruz in August at UFC 227

Hey, does anyone have @DominickCruz number? I just wanna let him know, that I need him for Aug 4th in Cali. — Aljamain Sterling (@FunkMaster_UFC) June 5, 2018 UFC 225 is now available on Amazon Prime . Ultimate Fighting Championship bantamweight contender Aljamain Sterling (14-3) is ready for his next assignment inside the Octagon and has his sights set on former bantamweight king Dominick Cruz (22-2). Sterling last fought in April in Atlantic City at UFC Fight Night 128 against Brett Johns . The 28 year-old was victorious over the three rounds, winning by unanimous decision. The win gave Sterling some much-needed confidence after coming off his devastating knockout loss to Marlon Moraes in December. During the post-fight interview after his win against Johns, the current No. 7 ranked bantamweight called out the former champion Cruz, telling him “It’s time for the idols to become the rivals.” It appears Sterling still wants that fight to happen and even made a post on Twitter about it suggesting he’d like to face Cruz in August at UFC 227. Sterling recently went to the UK for a promotional tour for the UFC Liverpool event, where he spent time with the fans while attending the fight.

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 Yoel Romero in the UFC 225 main event. The latest installment of The Film Room examines some of the strategies and techniques that define “The Reaper.” 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.

UFC 225's CM Punk dismisses distraction of court case, tells critics of fight 'don't watch'

“It’s not the weight-of-the-world pressure, like with all the talk of I shouldn’t be here to begin with and I definitely should’ve gotten cut after the last fight,” Punk said. “I’m probably on the chopping block, but who knows? Maybe not. I don’t look past Saturday. It’s not like I’m tired of training and I’m sick of training and I wish I was doing something else or I have my eyes set on doing movies or becoming a pro golfer or working in the mailroom somewhere. I still enjoy training every single day. I still am fortunate that can be my full-time job. I train with guys who have one or two other side jobs, and I see how hard they work, and it just motivates me to work even harder. We’ll have to see what happens Saturday night, and then maybe it’s a question for Sunday morning. But I’ve got all the confidence in the world in myself and mostly my team.”

The Tragic Real-Life Story Of Andre The Giant

If you're new, Subscribe! → http://bit.ly/Subscribe-to-Grunge Back in the '80s, the World Wrestling Federation - now known as World Wrestling Entertainment - was a grab-tastic slam-stravaganza crammed with classic characters and legendary storylines - and Andre the Giant was the Atlas holding it all up. The 500-plus-pound Andre dwarfed even the most enormous of his fellow athletes. According to Sports Illustrated, one of his hands could engulf a 12-ounce beer can, and his wrists were thicker than most men's ankles.

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.
