Eddie Alvarez coach Mark Henry: Illegal elbow my fault at UFC Calgary

The most unfortunate part of the whole experience, Henry said, is that his actions reflect on his fighter and teammate. He repeatedly stressed Alvarez is not a dirty fighter. He also praised Poirier for clarifying that the illegal blow did not land to his head. While he notes Poirier did land an illegal groin shot during the action, he attributes the action to their fiercely competitive style matchup. The UFC lightweights’ first matchup at UFC 211 ended in controversial fashion when Alvarez threw a trio of illegal knees, resulting in a no contest .

Sherdog’s Official Mixed Martial Arts Rankings - Louisiana Lightning

Dustin Poirier cemented himself as a legitimate title contender in the Ultimate Fighting Championship ’s lightweight division, with a little help from the rulebook. “The Diamond” extended his winning streak to three fights, as he cut down former UFC and Bellator MMA lightweight champion Eddie Alvarez with punches in the second round of their UFC on Fox 30 headliner on July 28 at the Scotiabank Saddledome in Calgary, Alberta. In the follow-up to their memorable but anticlimactic UFC 211 encounter a little more than a year ago, Alvarez succumbed to blows 4:05 into Round 2. Again, their battle was not without controversy. Alvarez scrambled to the Lafayette, Louisiana, native’s back in the second round and secured a neck crank before taking a seated position in full mount at the base of the cage. An ill-advised 12-to-6 elbow to the shoulder cost Alvarez his dominant spot and necessitated a letter-of-the-law warning from referee Marc Goddard . Poirier let go with a blistering kitchen-sink salvo after the restart that left his counterpart in a compromised state and necessitated the stoppage.

Conor McGregor: ‘All of Ireland Was Happy for Jose Aldo’ Following UFC on Fox 30 Win

Once upon a time, Conor McGregor and Jose Aldo weren’t on the best of terms. The two were fierce rivals in 2015, as McGregor set his sights on Aldo’s featherweight belt. The animosity increased during a lengthy promotional tour and again after Aldo was forced to pull out of a scheduled bout with the Irishman at UFC 189. The saga culminated in a 13-second knockout victory for McGregor at UFC 194, ending Aldo’s stranglehold on the division. While Aldo lobbied for a rematch, McGregor would not compete at 145 pounds again. He was eventually stripped of the title shortly after he moved up to lightweight to claim that division’s belt with a stoppage of Eddie Alvarez at UFC 205 in November 2016. McGregor has gone on to become the promotion’s biggest star, and the feud with Aldo may very well have been the launching point. Aldo, meanwhile, went into a tailspin, losing three of his last four bouts heading into a pivotal UFC on Fox 30 showdown with Jeremy Stephens . Aldo looked impressive in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, last Saturday, as he returned to form with a first-round stoppage of his opponent in the evening’s co-main event.

From Joe 'Daddy' to 'Coach Joe'

Joe Stevenson is a veteran of 49 professional mixed martial arts bouts, dating back to 1999. Those numbers become all the more surprising when you realize Stevenson is only 36 years old. Yet what may surprise fans of the sport even more is that the California native has been an MMA coach for almost as long as he's been a fighter. The man nicknamed “Daddy” became a coach in the first place through circumstance, rather than as a planned gig. “My coach at the time was fighting in the UFC, and he was kind of focused on himself, so I ended up coaching a lot of [his] classes,” Stevenson told Sherdog.com. It was the beginning of a parallel journey he would have for the next decade and half as fighter and a coach. Some of Stevenson’s earliest lessons in coaching occurred when he worked with MMA legend Bas Rutten for several of his camps, including for his bout with Kevin Randleman at UFC 20, where he won the Ultimate Fighting Championship heavyweight title. Incredibly, Stevenson was still in high school at the time. Stevenson began his own fighting career at the age of 17.

Bethe Correia Injured; Bout vs. Irene Aldana Pulled from UFC 227 Lineup

Former women’s bantamweight title challenger Bethe Correia has withdrawn from a proposed bout against Irene Aldana at UFC 227 due to injury, the promotion announced Tuesday. The 135-pound contest will not be replaced, so Saturday’s card will proceed with 12 bouts. UFC 227 takes place at the Staples Center in Los Angeles and is headlined by a bantamweight title rematch between T.J. Dillashaw and Cody Garbrandt . In the co-main event, Demetrious Johnson will defend his flyweight crown against Henry Cejudo in another rematch. The evening’s main card airs on pay-per-view at 10 p.m. ET/7 p.m. PT. Prelims begin on UFC Fight Pass before moving to FX at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m PT. Correia vs. Aldana was slated for the FX portion of the prelims. Correia hasn’t competed since suffering a head-kick knockout loss to Holly Holm in the UFC Fight Night 111 main event in June 2017. The Brazilian is just 1-3-1 in her last five Octagon appearances, including a 34-second knockout loss to Ronda Rousey in a title bout at UFC 190. After opening her promotional tenure with back-to-back losses, Aldana picked up her first Octagon victory with a unanimous decision triumph over Talita Bernardo at UFC Fight Night 124.

Judo Gold Medalist Kayla Harrison Set for Second MMA Bout at PFL 6 on Aug. 16

Two-time Olympic judo gold medalist Kayla Harrison will make her sophomore mixed martial arts appearance at Professional Fighters League 6 on Aug. 16. Harrison will square off against Jozette Cotton at Ocean Resort Casino in Atlantic City, N.J. in a 155-pound main card bout. The promotion confirmed the booking following an initial report from ESPN.com . The full lineup for PFL 6, the organization’s next-to-last regular season event, has not been announced. The main card will be televised on NBC Sports Network following early prelims on Facebook. Harrison became the first American to win a gold medal in judo at the 2012 Olympic Games in London and repeated the feat with another gold-medal triumph in 2016 in Rio de Janeiro. She made her MMA debut at PFL 2 on June 21, submitting Brittney Elkin with an armbar 3:18 into the opening stanza. Anchored at the Premiere Combat Center, Cotton has compiled an 8-1 career mark that includes one triumph under the Bellator MMA banner. The 30-year-old known as “The #1 Headbusta” has finished four of her victories by knockout or technical knockout.

The Film Room: Henry Cejudo

UFC 227 is now available on Amazon Prime . Henry Cejudo will get his second shot at Ultimate Fighting Championship gold when the 2008 Olympic gold medalist challenges Demetrious Johnson for the undisputed flyweight title in the UFC 227 co-headliner on Saturday at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. This installment of The Film Room focuses on the techniques and strategies that Cejudo employs. King of the Mat Cejudo ranks as one of the most accomplished American wrestlers in MMA history. In addition to his Olympic gold medal, he was a four-time Pan American Games champion. However, Cejudo has rarely used his grappling chops since moving to MMA in 2013, choosing to strike with opponents unless his wrestling skills were absolutely necessary. When he does choose to wrestle, Cejudo can take down opponents at will. Instead of power takedowns, he likes to grab a single-leg and lift it as high as possible, taking them off their post leg and dragging them to the mat -- a tactic he has been using since his Olympic days.

UFC Fighter Details Intense Street Brawl That Nearly Took Three Of His Fingers - MMA Imports

“So, I wake up the next morning and my finger is just completely infected. I go back to the same plastic surgeon, he has to take the stitches out, drain it, and then pack it with gauze. So now I have like an open wound on my hand, this gaping hole on my finger, and my finger is really the size of a sausage. It was ridiculous. That took about four weeks for it to close, and then that was like already a week before my next fight, so it just had closed up, like scabbed over by the time a week before the fight. And actually when I was at the fights in Austin, the doctor was like, ‘Oh, what happened to your hand?’ When they were doing the pre-fight medicals. Like, ‘Oh, that’s just an old injury,’ I just kinda brushed it off.”

'Cyborg' Says Superfight With Nunes Not The Biggest Challenge of Her Career

A superfight between current Ultimate Fighting Championship women’s featherweight champion Cristiane Justino , better known as “Cyborg,” and bantamweight champion Amanda Nunes is all but confirmed although an actual date hasn’t been set which is causing a lot of frustration for “Cyborg,” who says she is ready to fight now. “Cyborg” produced another devastating performance in her demolition of Yana Kunitskaya back in March, finishing the former Invicta FC champion in the first round and remaining undefeated in her UFC career. The 33 year-old Brazilian was hopeful of keeping active by taking the fight with Nunes in September although the bantamweight champ announced on social media that she has signed a contract to fight “Cyborg” at UFC 232 on December 29 in Las Vegas, Nevada. This announcement didn’t sit well with the pound-for-pound queen who wanted to be more active in 2018 and said she’d be willing to face another featherweight in the meantime to keep her momentum going. ”Amanda has talked a bunch of stuff, saying she couldn’t fight, that she was injured and would take her six months to recover,” Cyborg told MMA Fighting .

PFL 5 Weigh-ins: Efrain Escudero Eliminated from Playoffs on the Scale

At least Ultimate Fighting Championship veteran Efrain Escudero is consistent. Known for missing weight at several points in his career, Escudero again failed on the scale Wednesday in Uniondale, New York, hitting 163.2, which led to his removal from Thursday’s PFL 5 card. His opponent, Islam Mamedov , did his part by hitting 155.2. Mamedov will be paid his show and win money , as well as receive a win in the PFL Playoff standings. By missing weight for the second time this season, Escudero has been eliminated from post-season consideration. Thursday’s NBCSN card will go forward with eight bouts. PFL 5 Weigh-in Results: Jason High (155.8) vs. Natan Schulte (155.4) Vinny Magalhaes (204.6) vs. Brandon Halsey (205.6) Will Brooks (155.8) vs. Robert Watley (156) Rakim Cleveland (205) vs. Maxim Grishin (204.2) Rashid Magomedov (155.6) vs. Luiz Firmino (155.8) Chris Wade (155.2) vs. Yuki Kawana (155.8) Dan Spohn (205.2) vs. Artur Alibulatov (201.4) Thiago Tavares (155) vs. Arthur Estrazulas (155.6)

Infographic: Professional Fighters League Season 1 Lightweight Playoff Standings

Thursday’s PFL 5 card from Nassau Coliseum will go a long way toward shaking out the traffic jam in the Professional Fighters League lightweight division. The division itself offers an intriguing mix of veteran fighters looking for redemption and lesser-known prospects taking a significant step up in opposition. The former group includes such notables as 18-fight Ultimate Fighting Championship veteran Thiago Tavares , The Ultimate Fighter Season 8 winner Efrain Escudero and former Bellator MMA lightweight champ Will Brooks . One fighter who is likely just looking for a break of any kind is Jason High , after enduring another referee-related career low point in his regular-season debut at PFL 2 in June. “The Kansas City Bandit,” who is probably best-known for being released from the UFC after shoving referee Kevin Mulhall in the immediate aftermath of his match with Rafael dos Anjos , lost to Escudero via technical submission in spite of not appearing to have tapped. In an additional layer of weirdness, Escudero failed to make weight for that fight, which is why he has zero points in these standings in spite of having won.

Eddie Alvarez Issues Humble Statement Following Loss to Dustin Poirier | MMAWeekly.com

There are no grey areas in Fighting , one man will lose and the other will win , this is why I love this game . Controversial calls , judging , and fan support can always add to the drama but in the end 1 will stand and 1 will fall . Hats off to Dustin and his team he stayed calm under pressure and fought beautifully this makes us 1-1 . In no way will I judge Godard harshly , We have the same Job ! he has to make decisions in split seconds just like I do , and he makes them with my health and my opponents in mind . What’s done is done . As for Mark Henry calling for an elbow in the heat of the moment . An angled elbow is an incredible shot from the position I was in , it’s actually the only shot you can throw . We simply had a miscommunication, it happens in war more often than not , this was a case of “friendly fire” and we ended up on the losing end of this battle . But let’s remember Ricardo and Mark are also responsible for my UFC world title , and wins over some of the greatest fighters in the UFC , He’s the hardest worker on our team , obsessive, detailed , and pushes us all to understand the opportunity we have in front of is on a world stage .

5 Questions for Alexey Oleynik

Roughly a month remains before the Ultimate Fighting Championship touches down in Russia for UFC Fight Night 136 . A heavyweight battle between 2001 K-1 World Grand Prix winner Mark Hunt and 41-year-old submission savant Alexey Oleynik will headline the historic event in Moscow. Oleynik has rattled off 14 wins across his past 16 appearances. He last fought at UFC 224 in May, when he submitted Junior Albini with his patented Ezekiel choke in Rio de Janeiro and improved his record inside the Octagon to 5-2. In this exclusive interview with Sherdog.com, Oleynik shares his emotions ahead of his next assignment, his thoughts on Hunt and his opinion on hyping fights. Sherdog: What has the process been like leading up to this event? Oleynik: I didn’t wait long for an answer about my fight and opponent. After my victory in Brazil, I was asked who I wanted to fight. I said I wanted to fight Fabricio Werdum . He’s the most famous grappler in the world and one of the best. It would have been a tough fight, and I think many fans were looking forward to it.

UFC on FOX 30 reactions: Winning and losing fighters on social media

🇧🇷 Primeiramente gostaria de agradecer. Agradecer pela saúde e oportunidade de caminhar na trilha que amo. Agradecer pelas pessoas que estão em minha volta, minha família, amigos e equipe.

What Joanna Jedrzejczyk, Jose Aldo have in common and how Henry Cejudo could join them

The trouble is, as of now, both fighters are essentially asking the UFC to do something it’s never done. Never has a fighter been granted a third crack at a specific champion after going 0-2 against that champ in previous UFC title bouts. It just doesn’t happen, and it’s not hard to see why.

Hopefully we can find something and share with the UFC and go from there so another fighter doesn’t have to go through what I did that week. It was a crazy week for me. We’ll continue to do tests and see some experts and go from there.”

Alexander Hernandez Displeased with His Performance Despite Win at UFC on Fox 30

Myself, my team, we are here to Devastate. There is no pride in participation. Last night, though dominating, was an unsatisfactory performance. I’ll be on my game next time. Thank you to all the viewers and supporters. Nothing but love — Alex Hernandez (@TheGreat155) July 29, 2018 The much hyped Ultimate Fighting Championship newcomer Alexander Hernandez isn’t thrilled with his performance on Saturday night despite his well-rounded effort, earning himself a victory over the Canadian Olivier Aubin-Mercier at UFC on Fox 30 held in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. The 25 year-old went into the fight with a fair bit of hype following his stunning debut in the UFC back in March this year where he knocked out Beneil Dariush in just 42 seconds. Many fans were wondering if Hernandez could repeat a similar feat against the crafty grappler Aubin-Mercier, who was riding a four fight winning streak. Hernandez talked to the media after the fight to explain his disappointment in his own performance claiming he’s much better than what he showed against the Canadian on the weekend (via MMAJunkie.
