Junior dos Santos Pulled From UFC 215 Due to Potential Anti-Doping Violation

Former heavyweight champion Junior dos Santos has been removed from a UFC 215 matchup with Francis Ngannou due to a possible anti-doping violation. Dos Santos’ failed test stems from an out-of-competition sample collected on Aug. 10. “Cigano” was pulled from UFC 215 “due to the close proximity” of his scheduled bout with Ngannou. The UFC is currently seeking a replacement opponent for Ngannou, according to a statement. I'm very very angry!!! Almost done with training camp and they just announced that my opponent is out for #ufc215 — Francis NGannou (@francis_ngannou) August 18, 2017 As usual, USADA will handle the results management and appropriate adjudication of the dos Santos case. The 33-year-old Brazilian is entitled to a full review process before any sanctions are imposed. The substance for which dos Santos tested positive was not revealed.

Welterweights Stephen Thompson, Jorge Masvidal to Clash at UFC 217 in New York

A showdown between welterweight contenders Stephen Thompson and Jorge Masvidal is set for UFC 217 in New York on Nov. 4. Multiple outlets have confirmed the pairing following an initial report from . UFC 217 takes place at Madison Square Garden in New York and is headlined by a middleweight championship tilt between Michael Bisping and Georges St. Pierre . Thompson recently came up short in two bids to claim 170-pound gold, battling reigning champion Tyron Woodley to a majority draw at UFC 205 before falling to Woodley via majority decision in their rematch at UFC 209. Prior to that “Wonderboy” authored a seven-fight winning streak to earn his shot at the welterweight title. Masvidal, meanwhile, is coming off a split-decision loss to Demian Maia at UFC 211 on May 13. That snapped a three-fight winning streak for “Gamebred,” who had bested Donald Cerrone , Jake Ellenberger and Ross Pearson in succession inside the Octagon.

Francis Ngannou Calls Out Alistair Overeem for Short Notice Fight at UFC 215

Now that Junior dos Santos is sidelined due to a potential anti-doping violation, Francis Ngannou needs an opponent at UFC 215 . The surging Frenchman already has someone in mind. “[ Alistair Overeem ] been mentioning my name everywhere,” Ngannou wrote on Twitter. “I’m now open and free for you guy. Let’s do this at [UFC 215].” @Alistairovereem been mentioning my name everywhere . I'm now open and free for you guy . Let do this at #ufc215 — Francis NGannou (@francis_ngannou) August 19, 2017 UFC 215 is three weeks away, and while the promotion is searching for a replacement foe for Ngannou, it is unclear if Overeem would be willing to take such a high-profile bout on short notice. The Jackson-Wink MMA product last appeared at UFC 213, where he captured a majority decision against Fabricio Werdum . Overeem has won six of his last seven in the Octagon overall, with his only defeat coming in a title bout against Stipe Miocic at UFC 203. The 30-year-old Ngannou is currently riding a nine-fight winning streak.

5 Things You Might Not Know About Francis Ngannou

Francis Ngannou serves as an exception to the rule in a thinning and aging weight class all but devoid of young talent. Many view him as an heir to the heavyweight throne. The fast-rising contender was expected to meet former Ultimate Fighting Championship heavyweight titleholder Junior dos Santos at UFC 215 on Sept. 9 in Edmonton, Alberta. However, dos Santos was flagged for a potential violation in a pre-fight drug test administered by the United States Anti-Doping Agency, resulting in his removal from the card and leaving Ngannou without a dance partner. Now, the MMA world awaits word on a replacement. Ngannou has compiled a 5-0 record since joining the UFC roster in December 2015, rattling off consecutive victories over Luis Henrique Barbosa de Oliveira , Curtis Blaydes , Bojan Mihalovic, Anthony Hamilton and Andrei Arlovski . The quality of his performances has only improved as the level of competition has increased -- a promising sign for a 30-year-old heavyweight who has been fighting professional for less than four years.

Opinion: How Did Kevin Lee Land Shot at Interim Title at UFC 216?

Editor’s note: The views and opinions expressed below are those of the author and do not necessarily reflect the views of, its affiliates and sponsors or its parent company, Evolve Media. * * * UFC President Dana White this week announced that the Ultimate Ultimate Fighting Championship would promote an interim lightweight title fight between the second-ranked Tony Ferguson and seventh-ranked Kevin Lee at UFC 216 on Oct. 7 in Las Vegas. There was some immediate backlash from people who wondered how Lee, whose only win against ranked competition came against Michael Chiesa , ended up in the title picture at 155 pounds. Well, here’s how this happened. Khabib Nurmagomedov was the most glaring omission as it relates to this title fight. The UFC ranks the undefeated Dagestani grappler as the No. 1 contender in the lightweight division and the No. 12 pound-for-pound fighter in the world. Nurmagomedov should be in the title picture, right? Not really. His 24-0 record clearly warrants an opportunity, but he has struggled with the scale in the past and was forced to withdraw from his scheduled showdown with Ferguson at UFC 209 less than 24 hours before the event due to a failed weight cut.

Opinion: A Mir-ror and a Map For All MMA Modernity

Editor’s note: The views and opinions expressed below are those of the author and do not necessarily reflect the views of, its affiliates and sponsors or its parent company, Evolve Media. * * * For a time just a few short years ago, it seemed like Frank Mir might be one of the few fighters who spent nearly his entire career in the Ultimate Fighting Championship and would hang up his gloves under UFC employ. Alas, the MMA world moves swiftly and unpredictably. The writing has been on the Octagon wall since Mir was knocked out by Mark Hunt in March 2016 and failed a U.S. Anti-Doping Agency test for turinabol metabolites. When the company officially released him on July 9, it ended a 16-year run with the promotion; Mir was on the roster for 5,727 consecutive days, the longest sustained run in UFC history. Even still, as imminent and obvious as it was, the phrase “Bellator MMA heavyweight Frank Mir” rings strange. No, not strange as in unexpected -- like I said, this signing was a foregone conclusion -- but strange in the sense of being quaint and remarkable.

Could McGregor actually win? How the hype shifted to get us all to ask the same question

That was enough to grab a few headlines, especially when the material got more and more questionable, but it wasn’t going to be enough to sell us this fight. Not when the perceived skill gap was wide enough to drive a fleet of Mayweather’s Bentleys through. Not when people still remembered feeling fleeced by his expensive snoozefest against Manny Pacquiao in the last “fight of the century.”

Arlovski, an honorable mention in the latest USA TODAY Sports/MMAjunkie MMA heavyweight rankings , will attempt to snap a five-fight losing skid in the upcoming fight. Although the majority of his defeats in that stretch have come against the likes of Stipe Miocic, Alistair Overeem, Josh Barnett and Francis Ngannou, the former UFC titleholder is coming off a unanimous decision loss to a lesser-known foe in Marcin Tybura at UFC Fight Night 111 in June.

Artem Lobov vs. Andre Fili Showdown Booked for UFC Fight Night 118 in Poland

Artem Lobov will lock horns with Andre Fili in a featherweight tilt at UFC Fight Night 118 . Promotion officials announced the pairing on Friday. UFC Fight Night 118 takes place in Gdansk, Poland, on Oct. 21 and will stream on UFC Fight Pass. A headliner has not been announced for the event. Lobov had a two-fight winning streak halted in his most recent outing at UFC Fight Night 108, as he lost a five-round verdict to Cub Swanson in the evening’s headliner on April 22. However, the SBG Ireland representative gained a measure of respect by going the distance with a top featherweight contender in an entertaining battle. A member of Team Alpha Male, Fili has alternated wins and losses through his first eight Octagon appearances. Most recently, he suffered a unanimous decision defeat to Calvin Kattar at UFC 214 on July 29.

Garry Tonon Outpoints Rival Dillon Danis in Polaris 5 Main Event

When the two first locked horns back at ADCC 2015, Garry Tonon and Dillon Danis weren’t exactly the best of friends. A heel hook submission for Tonon occurred that day and in the two years leading up to their Polaris 5 main event battle inside Indigo at O2 Arena in London, there certainly weren’t any changes of heart in their UFC Fight Pass-televised battle. Tonon was amped to submit his rival again and “The Lion Killer” was relentless with his attacks. He repeatedly had Dillon on the defensive with a cornucopia of leg locks. Whether it was the heel hook, the toe fold or the straight knee bar, Tonon did everything he could to force the tap. To his credit, Danis never succumbed to the submissions but he was never able to get his own offense going. For that reason alone, all three matside judges favored Tonon, who won via unanimous decision. Longtime mixed martial arts veteran Jake Shields did just enough to eke past Dan Strauss in the Polaris 5 co-feature, though the fight wasn’t aesthetically pleasing. Shields took the bulkier Brit down early but was stuck in Strauss’ guard throughout.

And good for them.’ But deep down, I was expecting something to come out eventually. And it did. And I was like, ‘Exactly what he did to you guys, is what he did to me.’ And I was called a snake. But the only difference is I had footage. Paulie doesn’t.”

By The Numbers: Amanda Nunes

Amanda Nunes has restored order to what had become a volatile Ultimate Fighting Championship division, filling the power vacuum created by Ronda Rousey ’s unexpected fall. Nunes will put her women’s bantamweight title on the line against Valentina Shevchenko in the UFC 215 co-main event on Sept. 9 at Rogers Place in Edmonton, Alberta. It serves as rematch between the world’s top two fighters at 135 pounds, the “Lioness” having outpointed Shevchenko to a unanimous decision in their initial meeting in March 2016. In two appearances since, Nunes has carved up Miesha Tate to capture the undisputed women’s bantamweight crown and then successfully defended it in an equally dominant performance against the aforementioned Rousey. The 29-year-old Brazilian now operates out of the powerhouse American Top Team camp in Coconut Creek, Florida, where she continues to hone her world-class skills. During her outstanding career, Nunes has amassed her share of intriguing statistical data: 427: Days she will have spent as UFC women’s bantamweight champion by the time she climbs into the cage to face Shevchenko.
