Darrion Caldwell: 5 Defining Moments

Reigning Bellator MMA champion Darrion Caldwell will let his title rest on his mantle, as he moves up to 145 pounds to challenge Noad Lahat in the Bellator 204 main event on Friday at the Sanford Pentagon in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. A convincing win over Lahat could potentially set the stage for a champion-versus-champion superfight against featherweight titleholder Patricio Freire . Ahead of Caldwell’s showdown with Lahat, here are five moments that have come to define him: 1. The Big Stage Caldwell was an undefeated prospect with a 3-0 record when he made his promotional debut against Lance Surma as a featherweight at Bellator 112 on March 14, 2014. When the onetime NCAA wrestling champion attempted a flying knee in the first round, it became apparent that he was not going to be fazed by the big stage. Caldwell was still in the air when he grabbed his opponent’s head in the clinch and landed a knee to the body. Surma caught the Rahway, New Jersey, native’s leg, picked him up and dumped him to the mat. However, Caldwell secured a guillotine choke, stood and kept squeezing until the overmatched Surma bowed out a mere 50 seconds into the match.

By the Numbers: Ray Cooper III

14 years later, the Cooper family exacts their revenge! Ray Cooper III defeats Jake Shields in Round 2 by TKO earning 5 points.#PFL3 #MMA #PFLmma #WhatDoYouFightFor #DC pic.twitter.com/ws95qUVUfA — #PFLmma (@ProFightLeague) July 6, 2018 Hawaiian Ray Cooper III is currently on a high, having conquered the biggest name of his career in Jake Shields , the same person who defeated his father in 2002. With a beef to settle, Cooper III unleashed punishment on Shields when they met at Professional Fighters League 3. And while he battered a Cesar Gracie jiu-jitsu black belt that is already past his prime, the fact remains that Shields is a former Strikeforce middleweight champion who has wins over Dan Henderson , Robbie Lawler , Carlos Condit , Demian Maia and current UFC welterweight king, Tyron Woodley . “Bradda Boy” ran through him like a man on a mission and forced a TKO stoppage in the second round. Cooper III is a quick starter who has finished all but three of his opponents, and he will look to bring his heavy hands when he meets Ukrainian submission specialist Pavel Kusch at Ocean Resort Casino in Atlantic City, New Jersey.

Ray Cooper III: Family Ties and Unimaginable Highs

Your browser does not support iframes. Ray Cooper III will head into another Professional Fighters League main event as a confident man, with the same level of self-assurance he carried before he picked up a career-defining victory over former Shooto , Strikeforce and EliteXC champion Jake Shields at PFL 3 on July 5. Why? Because Cooper he prepares and expects to win. “I just trained with my dad and my two brothers,” Cooper said. “That’s it.” It may not be the response one would expect regarding preparation for a fighter of Shields’ caliber, especially when you add the fact that the family trained out of a gym built by his father in what used to be his son’s garage. Nevertheless, it worked to great success because few families were as ready to meet Shields as the Coopers. “I had an advantage because my dad fought him,” Cooper said. “I knew how he fought, and he didn’t change [much since] then.” Those who watched the PFL 3 broadcast were enlightened in regards to Ray Cooper ’s history with Shields. The Cooper family’s MMA patriarch fought him in 2002 and 2004, going 1-1 in the two-fight series.

He’s one of two unanimous picks among our 13 MMAjunkie editors, writers, radio hosts and videographers.

James Gallagher: Conor McGregor's advice helped me from going 'face down' during layoff

“I see him every day in the gym working hard and he helped me get through it,” Gallagher said. “He helped me prepare for how bad it’s going to be. He said I would be down and going through those testing times, ‘You’re going to be face down and want to throw everything out the window, but only the best stick it out. You’ve got two options: Either stick it out and do it, or else you don’t.’ I stuck it out. I grinned through it and I pushed through the testing times knowing I’ve seen the bigger picture and knew where my future was going. I just kept looking at that belt.

Not saying I don’t think it was leading towards a stoppage. But if someone is intelligently defending themselves and using technique to move, I think it should be on the corner not the ref to stop that if they feel their fighter is simply outmatched even while using technique

Ray Cooper III Evaporates Pavel Kusch in PFL 6 Headliner

18 SECONDS! Ray Cooper III ends it in a hurry and locks up the top seed at welterweight. #PFL6 #PFLmma pic.twitter.com/CDR3KtOJB4 — #PFLmma (@ProFightLeague) August 17, 2018 Ray Cooper III proved to be the far superior welterweight when he torched Pavel Kusch in the main event of PFL 6 on Thursday night inside Ocean Resort Casino in Atlantic City, New Jersey. “Bradda Boy” stormed out of his corner like a wolverine and tore into the Ukrainian with a maelstrom of punches to the head. Kusch (23-6) was caught off-guard and never recovered; his legs eventually turned to gelatin and his consciousness effectively removed from the onslaught of fists. Cooper III never stopped throwing bombs until referee Keith Peterson finally intervened, ending the blitzkrieg in just 18 seconds. The sensational knockout win allowed the Hawaiian to not only rise to 15-4, but also clinched the number-one seed in the 2018 PFL Playoffs at welterweight with six points earned. Magomed Magomedkerimov bolstered his pro ledger to 20-5 by toppling Serbia’s Bojan Velickovic over three rounds.

Source: Brennan Ward, Andre Fialho Middleweight Scrap Booked for Bellator 207

Bellator MMA heavy hitters Brennan Ward (14-6) and Andre Fialho (9-1) will square off in a 185-pound duel on the main card of Bellator 207 on Oct. 12 at Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Connecticut. A source close to the pairing confirmed the bout to Sherdog.com Thursday evening. Ward, 30, of nearby Waterford, Connecticut, will look to get back in the win column following back-to-back losses to Fernando Gonzalez and Paul Daley . He was finished convincingly in each defeat. Fialho, an American Kickboxing Academy prospect, bounced back from his first career setback by edging A.J. Matthews in his last action in July of 2017. The 24 year-old from Portugal is 3-1 in the Bellator cage, with his lone defeat coming by way of an early knockout courtesy of Chidi Njokuani . Bellator 207 will be headlined by a heavyweight tournament bout pitting Matt Mitrione against Ryan Bader and will also feature another clash of big men in Roy Nelson versus Pride Fighting Championships vet Sergei Kharitonov .

Logan Storley: Staying Patient, Staying Perfect

It would be easy to guess that Logan Storley was a former All-American wrestler even if one didn’t already know. The telltale signs are all over the way the undefeated Bellator MMA welterweight talks about himself and his mixed martial arts career -- sincere and completely without pretense. But if “Storm” has no interest in boasting or trash talk, he does not care for false modesty either. Leading up to his fight with A.J. Matthews in the co-main event of Bellator 204 on Friday, the 25-year-old South Dakota native knows what he’s good at and is perfectly willing to claim it. “I know that with pretty much everybody in the 170-pound division in the world, I can dictate where the fight takes place,” Storley told Sherdog.com. That might seem like a bold or even reckless statement, since the welterweight division is a hotbed of accomplished wrestlers, some of which come to MMA with amateur credentials superior to Storley’s own. However, the nuance of Storley’s explanation shows that he may have good reason to believe as he does.

Twitter Mailbag: How much longer can Jon Jones' USADA limbo possibly last?

Jiu-jitsu is still a great art, and on some level a necessary one at every level of MMA. Trouble is, it’s so necessary that these days everyone knows it. It has to be paired with another art to make it effective. You either need great takedowns to help you get to a place where you can put your jiu-jitsu to work, or else you need great striking that will force someone else to try to take it there for you.
