Stefan Struve blacks out in locker room, UFC 175 bout with Matt Mitrione called off

Struve was expected to challenge Mitrione in his first fight since the discovery of a leaking aortic valve and an enlarged heart in August 2013. After undergoing treatment to lower his blood pressure and minimize his blood leakage, the 26-year-old was initially cleared to return by a doctor in Holland, as well as the UFC's official doctor, however Saturday night's episode has now put that return on hold.

In the second, a game Caceres had his moments, including popping the 35-year-old Faber with a sweet uppercut. But Faber stuck to his game plan and controlled most of the round, including a nasty judo throw.

UFC 175 results: Chris Weidman retains title against Lyoto Machida in thrilling fight

No one in their right mind is saying that after Saturday night, though. In a thrilling battle, Weidman got off to a fast start against the former light heavyweight champion, withstood a furious late-round comeback, and retained his championship via unanimous decision in the main event of UFC 175 at the Mandalay Bay Events Center.

Chris Weidman  (12-0 MMA, 8-0 UFC) proved his path to becoming UFC champion was no fluke on Saturday night with a unanimous decision victory over  Lyoto Machida (21-5 MMA, 13-5 UFC) in the UFC 175 headliner from Las Vegas’ Mandalay Bay Events Center.

UFC 175: Weidman vs. Machida live results, discussion and play by play (prelims)

Bloody Elbow will be rattling off live results and play by play all evening with, of course, a convenient forum to discuss the action in the comments section below. This particular chunk of internet space will cover the UFC 175 preliminary cards on FOX Sports 1 (8:00 p.m. ET) and UFC Fight Pass (7:00 p.m. ET), the centerpiece of which is a bantamweight scrap between Urijah Faber and Alex Caceres that will lead in to the UFC 175 pay-per-view (10:00 p.m. ET).

UFC 175 Video: Matt Mitrione and Stefan Struve on cancellation - 'As a sport, I think we dodged a bullet'

"Tonight, during my warm up prior to my scheduled fight with Matt Mitrione at UFC 175, I began experiencing discomfort and anxiety. However, given my extended layoff as a result of my recent medical issues and the passing of my father, I dismissed my physical and emotional feelings as nothing more than nervousness. Unfortunately, as my warm up progressed, I collapsed in the locker room. After consulting the UFC and the doctors, the determination was made that in an abundance of caution I should not be allowed to compete.

Despite scratch, Stefan Struve, Matt Mitrione get full paydays at UFC 175

In April, Struve said medication he was taking was working, and soon after, he was cleared to be booked for the fight with Mitrione. But now his return is on hold – with an uncertain timetable for when he can come back, and if that will be against Mitrione or a new opponent.

UFC 175 Video: Lyoto Machida gets cheered on by Brazil's World Cup Football Team

While the entire world has been glued to the World Cup, this weekend had a slight role reversal as the Brazilian National Football Team decided to cheer on their compatriot in Lyoto Machida during UFC 175 . During a short break from their games, the soccer team decided to watch the PPV together and defender Thiago Silva (not to be confused with the MMA fighter with the same name) posted their reaction to the main event bout.

Despite Mangled Toe, Uriah Hall Tastes Victory at UFC 175

Uriah Hall needed only nine toes to defeat Thiago Santos at UFC 175 in Las Vegas. Following consecutive split-decision losses against Kelvin Gastelum and John Howard , Hall parlayed his victory against Chris Leben at UFC 168 in December with a performance worth seeing, besting Santos on all three judges’ scorecards (29-28, 29-28, and 30-27) with a nasty toe injury to his right foot. During a post-fight interview with Joe Rogan, the Team Tiger Schulmann-fighter explained that he felt the ailment over the course of the middleweight contest. Related: Struve Has ‘Near-Fainting Spell’ at UFC 175, Fight Cancelled “I definitely did,” Hall said, with a bone clearly protruding his skin alongside a horribly disfigured toe as he spoke. “Every moment, I would feel my bone shifting out of my skin.” Despite the Nevada Athletic Commission’s doctors incessantly checking out the injury, Hall and his corner emphatically conveyed their desire to continue. “If you're not going after your dreams, you just exist,” Hall said.

The UFC has a Ronda Rousey problem on their hands

Rousey is a special kind of fighter the sport of MMA desperately needs and should celebrate for years to come.  In four fights she's arguably the biggest ticket seller in the industry or at worst in the top three, and the UFC needs to covet that kind of star power the way they did Georges St-Pierre for so many years. Hitching the UFC wagon to Rousey's star is a phenomenal plan for the future, but there have to be contenders to test her mettle and a schedule that makes her fights a special occasion and a must see television event because Ronda Rousey might just be the biggest draw this sport has ever known when it's all said and done. 

Dana White: 'We offered Cyborg a deal [when we purchased Strikeforce], and they turned it down'

"Listen, there are certain things to do, if you really want to fight in the UFC and you want to fight for the title, there's ways to get that done. There's ways to do it. It's not like we never offered Cyborg a deal. We offered Cyborg a deal and they turned it down. She got offered the same deal that Ronda got, and Cyborg turned it down."

“I think it’s something he really needs to think about,” White told MMAjunkie at the pay-per-view event’s post-fight presser at Las Vegas’ Mandalay Bay Events Center. “Obviously, you meet some of these guys that love to compete so much that they overlook certain things. I think tonight showed he’s not one of those guys.

Ronda Rousey’s Planned Knee Surgery, 9 Stitches Derail Tentative Plans for UFC 176

Dana White is not looking for Ronda Rousey to make a quick turnaround. | File photo: Dave Mandel/ Ronda Rousey ’s 16-second knockout victory against Alexis Davis at UFC 175 on Saturday piqued the interest of someone in the UFC’s production truck. During the Ultimate Fighting Championship’s ceremonial post-fight interview, the women’s bantamweight champion was asked by color commentator Joe Rogan if she would be interested in making a three-week turnaround in order to headline UFC 176 , which takes place in Los Angeles, on Aug. 2. At the time, Rousey explained she already had minor knee surgery scheduled, but would evaluate her options and make a more informed decision later. But, at the conclusion of the pay-per-view, it was revealed that “Rowdy” had suffered an injury to her right index finger that required nine stitches, thus making her possible inclusion at UFC 176 seem far-fetched. At the post-fight press conference, Rousey described what she has on her plate in the near future. “I developed a cyst under my knuckle,” Rousey explained.

Stefan Struve pulled from UFC 175 after passing out prior to fight

UFC president Dana White confirmed that Struve was dealing with heart palpitations and their belief is that he had a panic attack, but he was sent to a hospital immediately to be treated. With his existing heart condition, there's no doubt doctors will be running a battery of tests on the 7-foot Dutchman to verify what happened on Saturday night.

Dana White interested in Weidman vs. Belfort but has to see how things ‘play out’ with the athletic commission

UFC President Dana White believes Vitor Belfort is next in line for Chris Weidman's middleweight title but has to wait and see how things unfold with the Nevada State Athletic Commission.

LAS VEGAS – Leandro Issa, Jumabieke Tuerxun and Adriano Martins each earned $50,000 bonuses for their performances at Sunday’s TUF 19 Finale event, and Issa doubled up for a total of $100,000.

White not angry at Joe Rogan, but upset at broadcast team for Rousey question

“I wasn’t upset with Joe Rogan; I was upset with the (broadcast) truck telling him to tell Ronda that she’s going to fight again,” White said at UFC 175′s post-event news conference, which took place in Las Vegas’ Mandalay Bay Events Center, where the pay-per-view event was held. “That wasn’t true; that was some sh-t that somebody made up back there. It was the biggest idiotic move in the history of our production team.”

UFC 175 post-fight bonuses: Weidman-Machida thriller earns 'Fight of the Night' honours

Chris Weidman and Lyoto Machida took part in a fascinating five round thriller that featured a back-and-forth competitive affair to send the crowd home happy. While Weidman controlled the majority of the opening three rounds, Machida found his range in the fourth round and peppered his American adversary with a barrage of strikes that had the champ staggered at varying point in the final 10 minutes of the fight. It was the first legitimate test for Weidman, who went five rounds for the first time in his professional career.

Who are the top 3 contenders in line to face Ronda Rousey next?

First things first let's get the commentary out of the way.  Does Gina Carano deserve a title match against Ronda Rousey after not fighting for nearly five years? Absolutely not.  Should Carano -- a fighter who has never made 135-pounds before be expected to cut down and fight a champion like Rousey right now? Absolutely not. Should Gina Carano leap to the front of the line after getting trounced in her last fight against Cris 'Cyborg' Justino before leaving the sport? Absolutely not.

News Editor Tristen Critchfield confirmed with Ultimate Fighting Championship officials that the fight has been subsequently cancelled. UFC Medical Consultant Dr. Jeffery Davidson later acknowledged the situation on Saturday's UFC 175 pay-per-view broadcast and an official statement was released moments later: “Stefan Struve suffered a non-life-threatening, near-fainting spell backstage. Afterwards, the medical team did not feel he was fit to compete. With his health and safety in mind, he’s been removed from the card and is currently under the care of the medical staff.

The UFC kicked off the UFC 175 PPV broadcast with a couple of action-packed fights, the first between Marcus Brimage and Russell Doane, and the second between Uriah Hall and Thiago Santos.

Chris Camozzi on Santos loss: 'He trained to hug me and stall'

Not everyone can be classy in defeat. Chris Camozzi showed a distinct lack of takedown defense in his split decision loss to grinding wrestle/grappler Bruno Santos . Most particularly, Camozzi showed the ability to go for jumping knees and switch knees as takedown defense time and again. Each time Camozzi threw the rear knee, he got taken down. Each time he got taken down he had a hell of a time getting back to his feet. Camozzi, however, seems to have identified a different problem with his gameplan. Speaking to reporters after the fight, he suggested it was Santos' hug-based training that took the win and the fans' money with it.

UFC 175 live blog: Marcus Brimage vs. Russell Doane

MMA Fighting scores this round 10-9 Doane Round 2: A right hook from Brimage cracks Doane and drops him. As Brimage rushes in, Doane attempts a double, but Brimage sprawls and eventually separates. Doane is knocked to the canvas again with a hard leg kick. Doane appears to be hurt there, but hangs on. Doane pushes forward again and gets Brimage's back briefly, but this time Brimage separates and they're striking. Brimage goes right back to the hurt leg. Doane clinches and is driving knees to Brimage's body. Now Doane level changes against the fence and tries to yank Brimage out, but he rolls over, covers Doane's head and escapes. Hard outside leg kick from Brimage.

The blow set off an almost delayed reaction in Roop, who seemed frozen for an instant before halting and drooping to the floor as Font followed up with a few perfunctory strikes to settle the matter for good. After declaring the octagon jitters a myth, Font insisted he “felt great in here.” After a finish like that, UFC officials would likely agree that he looked it, too.

UFC 175 results, photos: Kenny Robertson grinds out Ildemar Alcantara

“We honestly thought he would feel bigger than he did,” Robertson said. “I knew I’d be stronger and I’m sure I weighed more, considering I was about 190 pounds tonight. I planned to use my hands to set up the easy takedowns early in the fight. If I was landing more shots than him on the feet I wanted to stay standing because I knew my wrestling would allow me to dictate where it took place. I tried for a D’Arce choke early on, but I didn’t lock it up quickly enough so I’m kicking myself for that mistake. I also think I could’ve thrown quicker punches out there tonight. But all in all, I’m happy with my performance and I’m ready to climb the ladder one step at a time.”
