and he's right. the whole "I'm not yes man" shit only works in promos, the company needs to make money and Ortega is basically telling them he isn't going to work for them. Call it admirable or the right thing to do on his part, but the company doesn't care about feelings.

PFL President Carlos Silva Talks What's Happened, What's To Come

Professional Fighters League begins the second half of its season next Thursday at the Nassau Coliseum in Garden City, New York. Carlos Silva, the PFL League President, talked with Sherdog about the season so far, what gives the league unique value and other PFL-related topics. "The core of what we do is always fighters first,” Silva told Sherdog. “It’s not the ‘Professional Fight League,’ It’s the Professional Fighters League. It’s their league too.” Silva seems to genuinely feel the PFL and its format are more pro-fighter than any other promotion to date. From the league president you would expect to read nothing less, yet he may have a point. The PFL’s configuration is about putting a fighter’s monetary windfall in their own hands. Social media followers and the ability to self-promote will not dictate payouts. In the league’s points-based regular season standings, the only way fighters can maximize their chance to grab the million-dollar prize at the end of the season is by winning -- and winning quickly, as stoppage victories are weighted more heavily than decisions.

Daniel Weichel and the Pursuit of Vindication

Daniel Weichel heads into Bellator 203 this Saturday in the pursuit of championship vindication, as he challenges Bellator MMA featherweight titleholder Patricio Freire for the second time. Having been knocked out by Freire in June 2015, Weichel claims to be a more focused and well-rounded fighter ahead of their rematch. When he looks back on what cost him, the former M-1 Global champion’s thoughts are clear. “I think it was just my [mind telling me], ‘I want to finish this fight. I want to get this belt,” Weichel said, “and I got a little bit too pumped up.” Late in the first round, Weichel had “Pitbull” on the brink of defeat. “I felt him want to close the distance and move forward, so I instantly did a side backstep and countered with the right hand,” he said. The right hand connected and left Freire badly stunned. It should have been a prelude to victory, but unfortunately for Weichel, the bell sounded and essentially saved the defending champion. “My corner told me do exactly what you did in the first round,” he said.

I was thinking about it a lot yesterday and I was thinking about it this morning and ever since Stipe sent me that message — do it again, congratulations and all that — when you get in the moment of some of the stuff that’s happening, you don’t stop and think about everyone else. I was in fight mode and then fight build mode with [Brock] Lesnar so I kind of feel bad that Stipe had to kind of sit through that after the fight,”

ONE Championship 77 results: Zebaztian Kadestam gets vicious third-round TKO over game Agilan Thani

The two wasted no time as the second round stated. This time, Thani was the one doing the chasing against the cage as Kadestam used his footwork to circle and avoid being backed up or taken down. Thani persisted on the takedown, pressing Kadestam against the cage, but Kadestam wasn’t having it. After two minutes, Kadestam advanced with some power-laced hands, but Thani was never dropped. Thani stated landing some solid shots of his own as the round advanced, and seemed like the most menacing presence in its final two minutes, but Kadestam was undeterred. As the final seconds approached, Kadestam ate a big head kick to the jaw as if it was no big deal.

I’m taking care of my knee every day, and I’m trying to rush to get back on track.”

Betting Odds Released for Cris Cyborg, Amanda Nunes Superfight

Waiting on you. @criscyborg #ufc232 December 29 Contrato assinado 29 de dezembro #ufc232 pic.twitter.com/J6QKx3YjvC — Amanda Nunes (@Amanda_Leoa) July 12, 2018 The betting odds for a Cris Cyborg vs. Amanda Nunes superfight have been released, with Bovoda putting Cyborg as a moderate favorite over the Ultimate Fighting Championship women’s bantamweight queen. The UFC is targeting UFC 232 on Dec. 29 for Cyborg’s for the bout, ESPN confirmed on Friday. Should Nunes pull off the upset, she would be the first two-time women’s UFC champion in the promotion’s history. Cristiane Justino -300 (1/3) Amanda Nunes +230 (23/10) The two champions have had a bit of back and forth on social media lately, with Nunes posting a signed bout agreement on Wednesday, a day after Cyborg tried to coax Nunes into fighting at UFC 228 in September instead: Both women are former Strikeforce fighters who have dominated their respective UFC divisions since joining in the promotion, with the featherweight class still very much in development. Cyborg is coming off of a first-round TKO over Yana Kunitskaya at UFC 222, while Nunes defeated Raquel Pennington in the fifth round at UFC 224 in May.

Brock Lesnar Remains Under Indefinite Suspension in Nevada | MMAWeekly.com

For one, Lesnar remains under suspension by the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency for testing positive to a banned substance stemming from his UFC 200 bout with Mark Hunt. Lesnar initially defeated Hunt, but that was later changed to a no-contest after he was found to have had clomiphene in his system. Instead of fulfilling his USADA imposed suspension for violating the UFC’s Anti-Doping Policy, Lesnar retired. That caused USADA to put a freeze on his suspension and he now has to fulfill that suspension before he can fight again.

The Dwyer Score- UFC Fight Night: Junior dos Santos vs. Blagoy Ivanov

Each event, I calculate a ‘Dwyer Score’ for the card. It essentially gives a numeric value to the momentum of fighters competing at any one event. I do this by assigning a figure to each fighter’s current streak; a fighter on a five-fight winning streak contributes +5 to an event’s score, whilst a fighter on a two-fight losing streak contributes -2 to the score. Only UFC results are considered and a fighter coming off a no-contest, a draw, or a bout with another promotion has a streak of 0. When you tally up the scores for every fighter on a card, you get a total for the event- the ‘Dwyer Score.’ This score does not claim to predict or measure the quality or excitement of any one card, but it does give you an idea of the general momentum of fighters heading into a specific event. The graphic to the above-right displays some of the highest-scoring events of all time, to help give some context to this score.

She’s pleased with the preparation she’s put in for UFC Fight Night 133, and so long as her effort inside the octagon against Reneau matches up with that, she’ll be able to live with the outcome.

Fact check: Has UFC Boise's Dennis Bermudez finished every southpaw he's faced?

MMAjunkie checked, and it’s true. Bermudez submitted Tommy Hayden and knocked out Jimy Hettes earlier in his career. Two stoppages in nine wins might not be the a-ha statistic to write home about. But when you’re down, anything helps to get up.

Sherdog Boxing: The Weekly Wrap

I’m returning August 25th, who do you think I’m going to be fighting? —— Ну ,что я возвращаюсь 25 августа в бой как вы думаете кто следующий соперник? A post shared by LOMA (@lomachenkovasiliy) on Jul 9, 2018 at 6:23am PDT As is so often the case, this week provided a few examples of unfortunate turns in the lives of boxers and a few matchups that are unfortunate turns for the sport. This week saw two high profile boxers being sought by the authorities, but for very different reasons. Victor Ortiz had a warrant issued for his arrest after he violated his probation stemming from a 2016 DUI . Ortiz failed to check in with his probation officer, then did not show up for a court appointment, resulting in the warrant. Ortiz’s career, and to some extent his life, have been a shame for such a likeable young man. After being stopped by Marcos Maidana in 2009, Ortiz famously declared “I was hurt, I'm not going to go out on my back; I'm not going to lay down for nobody. I'd rather stop while I'm ahead. That way I can speak well when I'm older. We'll see what happens from here on out [in regard to his future in the ring].

Twitter Mailbag: Is Daniel Cormier vs. Brock Lesnar a guaranteed hit?

It absolutely could. Yoel Romero is a scary dude for anybody, and against Cormier he matches up particularly well. I also think that, while it’s a far more legitimate and athletically meaningful fight than Cormier vs. Lesnar, it would bring in a fraction of the profits. The connoisseurs and the MMA heads would love that fight. The masses would flock to DC-Lesnar like it’s another superhero movie.

Tony Ferguson Still Wants Nurmagomedov Next, Not McGregor

Tony Ferguson has a serious history of near-misses with recently-crowned Ultimate Fighting Championship lightweight champ Khabib Nurmagomedov . The two have been scheduled to fight four times and all four times, one or the other has been forced to withdraw. Each man has pulled out of the scheduled bout twice, with several of those unceremonious exits occurring the week of the event. Yet despite all of the times the Nurmagomedov fight has fallen through, Ferguson remains undeterred in his desire to make it happen. “Obviously [Nurmagomedov is] the one I prepared for the most,” Ferguson told TSN in response to whether he’d prefer to fight Nurmagomedov or McGregor next. “I mean, obviously if the money is right and Conor wants to fight, we’ll make it happen and obviously we’ll talk.” The two lightweights were most recently booked to fight for the interim lightweight belt at UFC 223 in April, but a freak injury during a publicity event forced Ferguson out of the fight just days before the event. “El Cucuy” was replaced by Al Iaquinta ; “Ragin” Al ultimately lost to Nurmagomedov via unanimous decision in a five-round, non-title affair.

Geek for Technique: Best Moves from UFC 226 Prelims

International Fight Week 2018 has come and gone and we are now left with the fallout of some of the best and worst performances of the year. UFC 226 was the biggest card of the year, and despite losing a title fight between Max Holloway and Brian Ortega , it still delivered some of the most exciting fights of the year. Today we go over the best moves from UFC 226 prelims. Don’t Sleep on Hooker It was a big weekend for New Zealand fighters, with Dan Hooker providing the first memorable moment from UFC 226 with his spectacular knockout of Gilbert Burns . Early in the fight, Hooker dropped Burns with a beautiful counter right straight that just grazed the nose. Sensing the finish was near, Hooker picked up the pace and backed Burns against the cage before landing a counter lead hook that finished the grappling prodigy. Hooker has been with the Ultimate Fighting Championship since 2014 but hasn’t garnered the respect from fans and media that he deserves. He has proved to be one of the best strikers in the division and at only 28 years old, he has a bright future in the UFC’s most stacked division.

45 Dana White-Brendan Schaub feud escalates with 'last warning' in scathing Twitter post (Updated)

This is hilarious. Yes, Joe Rogan, one of my best friends has played a significant role in my post fight career, no doubt, you’re right about that DW. Two tv shows, sold out world wide comedy tour, two successful podcast, and just booked my first major movie. Super grateful. HOWEVER, if it weren’t for the Fertitta’s loaning your ass millions of dollars to invest into an idea that wasn’t yours from the start you wouldn’t be (EXPLETIVE). How’s it feel to know once the real businessmen/Brains left, the UFC has been a shell of its self with you at the forefront. You’ve tried it all CM Punk experiment, begging Brock to come back, and praying at night for a Conor text. Tough job to do with out Lorenzo holding your hand making sure you don’t mess it all up. Can’t feel good. You’d be a cardio kick boxing coach in Boston in your late 40’s, hoping to grab a ticket to my stand up front row if Lorenzo Fertitta didn’t save your ass. Also, this is NO way Eskimo brothers should talk to one another. Last warning. 🤫
