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 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 .

Luke Rockhold Happy to Fight Weidman at UFC 230 But Needs 'The Right Contract'

It has been reported for a number of weeks now that a matchup between former Ultimate Fighting Championship middleweight champions Luke Rockhold and Chris Weidman was in the works for UFC 230 in November at Madison Square Garden, New York although nothing has been made official yet. The pair previously met back in December 2015 at UFC 194 where Rockhold knocked out then-champion Weidman. Weidman has been sidelined for over a year now with a nagging injury as a result of a torn ligament he suffered in his thumb. “The All-American” last featured inside the Octagon in July 2017 where he snapped a three-fight losing streak by defeating Kelvin Gastelum . Rockhold last fought back in February at UFC 221 for the interim UFC middleweight title against Yoel Romero . Romero missed weight for the fight ruling him out of contention for the title but managed to put the disappointment behind him to knock out Rockhold in the third round. Rockhold spoke to reporters at an event with his sponsor American Ethanol and said the only reason he’s not already signed a rematch bout against Weidman in November is because he wants a better contract (via MMAJunkie.

UFC 229 Tickets Sell Out Within 3 Minutes in Anticipation of McGregor's UFC Return

Three minutes was all it took... #UFC229 — UFC on BT Sport (@btsportufc) August 17, 2018 UFC 229 sold out within three minutes after tickets went on sale this week, likely due to the return of Conor McGregor . “The Notorious” is set to take on Ultimate Fighting Championship lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov in an effort to reclaim the belt McGregor won at UFC 205 back in 2016. McGregor hasn’t stepped foot in the Octagon since then, but did take a detour into boxing last summer in a losing effort to undefeated legend Floyd Mayweather . McGregor was eventually stripped of both the featherweight and lightweight titles during his extended hiatus from MMA. The appetite for McGregor’s UFC return is palpable, and the numbers already show extreme interest, with tickets for the Las Vegas event selling out in three minutes flat. “It’s pretty clear that fans have a huge appetite to see Conor McGregor’s return,” Vivid Seats Director Cate Kelly told MMAjunkie. Tickets for UFC 229 went on sale Wednesday, with UFC Fight Club members first in line for tickets, at prices starting at $205 for the cheap seats and going all the way up to $2,505.

Sherdog’s Weekend Boxing Preview

.@Tyson_Fury plans to seek and destroy. Stream #FuryPianeta TOMORROW 3:30PM ET: — SHOWTIME Boxing (@ShowtimeBoxing) August 17, 2018 Sherdog's resident boxing expert, James Kinneen , breaks down an upcoming weekend with plenty of can't-miss fights. What: Andrew Cancio vs. Dardan Zenunaj, Junior lightweights When: Aug. 17 How to Watch: ESPN 2, 11 p.m. ET Why You Should Care: Because Dardan Zenunaj wants to make a “ Mickey Ward-Arturo Gatti type of fight ” and Andrew Cancio is more than happy to oblige. Not every fight needs to have hall of fame or even pound-for-pound implications, some fights are just great, because they’re great fights. That may well be the case when it comes to Friday’s matchup between Andrew Cancio (18-4) and Dardan Zenunaj (14-4). Although neither fighter is likely going to be remembered as an all-time great, Cancio has faced the better opposition having lost to guys like Jojo Diaz but beaten guys like Rocky Juarez . But, that likely won’t mean much. See, Zenunaj has shown he can be outboxed, but has vowed he will come forward against Cancio, who is probably not slick enough to keep him away for long.

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 — #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.

Meanwhile, Team Lloyd Irvin rep Ron Stallings will tackle fellow UFC veteran Nah-Shon Burrell in the co-main event. AXS-TV will carry CES MMA 52 live at 9 p.m. ET.

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 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.

Bellator 204's Tywan Claxton admits his pre-fight weight requests were mind games

Lencioni, who started his weight cut from 180 pounds just three weeks prior to the fight, couldn’t shed enough bulk to make the 146-pound limit for non-title featherweight bouts. That entitled Claxton to 20 percent of Lencioni’s purse, but he said he convinced Bellator matchmaker Rich Chou to ask for more.

Bellator 204 results: Champ Darrion Caldwell completes first step in dual-title quest

Caldwell was quick to take the fight to the floor again in the second, immediately setting up in a familiar position. Lahat was able to work to his knees in an attempt to escape, but the threat of exposing his neck meant he had to tuck himself back down. Caldwell sensed the opportunity to attack and start raining down punches. Lahat tried to move, but the punches continued to land, and when he went briefly limp, the contest was called off at the 2:46 mark of the frame.

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.
