Opinion: 4 Takeaways From Nate Diaz-Conor McGregor 2

Editor’s note: The views and opinions expressed below are those of the author and do not necessarily reflect the views of Sherdog.com, its affiliates and sponsors or its parent company, Evolve Media. * * * Now that the dust has settled and UFC 202 is in the books, it’s time to look at four key takeaways from Conor McGregor ’s majority decision victory against Nate Diaz . After months of hype, the fight exceeded most everyone’s expectations and set up the world for a potential third showdown between two fighters who appear to be made for each other. With both men enjoying rising stock and plenty of options, let’s break down the most important things upon which to reflect: 1. McGregor Should Never Fight At 170 Pounds Again You have to give credit where credit is due, because McGregor had absolutely no business fighting at 170 pounds for a second time. The average fighter would have learned his lesson after being decisively submitted by a larger man. That was not the case for McGregor, who made the conscious decision to not only face Diaz again at 170 pounds but to do so in another five-round fight.

Donald Cerrone Signs 8-Fight Contract Extension with UFC

Donald Cerrone won’t be testing the free agent market anytime soon. The popular “Cowboy” recently signed an eight-fight extension with the Ultimate Fighting Championship. Sherdog.com confirmed the news with a UFC official following an initial report from MMAjunkie.com . Exact terms of the deal were not disclosed. Cerrone would have had one fight remaining on his previous deal following his second-round technical knockout victory over Rick Story this past weekend at UFC 202. However, unlike recent Bellator signee Rory MacDonald , the Jackson-Wink MMA representative is staying put. One of the Las Vegas-based promotion’s most active fighters, Cerrone took to Twitter on Thursday to hint that his next Octagon appearance may be in the near future: Guess I'll be fighting again soon pic.twitter.com/V0TBA1lrTV — Cowboy Cerrone (@Cowboycerrone) August 25, 2016 Cerrone has competed 22 times for the UFC since coming over from the now-defunct World Extreme Cagefighting promotion in 2011. The 33-year-old Colorado native has put together a three-fight winning streak at welterweight, besting Story, Patrick Cote and Alex Oliveira in succession.

UFC on FOX 21's Bec Rawlings plans to chin-check Paige VanZant with 'shocking power'

“She’s a great personality in this sport, and she’s really gotten a lot of eyeballs on the women’s (strawweight) division, and that’s awesome,” Rawlings told MMAjunkie today after a workout in Vancouver. “The more people that are tuning in to watch her are going to be more intrigued by our division as a whole. I feel like that’s really cool. Maybe her rankings and, I guess, the opportunity she’s been given in MMA, I feel like she probably didn’t deserve a little bit. But there are reasons why she gets those – she’s so marketable and she’s a bubbly personality that people want to see fight.

Carlos Condit explains why he returned to fight Demian Maia after hinting at retirement

"As far as the timing, it was kind of out of left field," Condit explained. "I got a call from Dana (White) and he wanted me to do this fight late summer and I wasn't planning on fighting until January. I've got a new baby going to be born in September so I was going to kick back and wait to fight until after that, but it also kind of made sense to go ahead and get a fight out of the way right before the baby's born so I don't have to worry about doing another camp for a while and just focus on my family."

"From what I remember, walking for the Paige fight, I was burnt out from all the media. I just remember feeling like I had to cater to all the fans or the people or the UFC or I have to put on a show. I had to look confident. I remember going in the cage and bouncing around and I felt like I had to talk (expletive) or something so you not only have to be a great fighter but you have to have this persona," Herrig described.

Sherdog’s Official Mixed Martial Arts Rankings - A Different Kind of Update

With recent months in the Ultimate Fighting Championship offering so many shake-ups in the official Sherdog.com rankings, this update is different in a way, with many stars reaffirming their status in unique ways. Conor McGregor ’s status atop the 145-pound division was not at stake at UFC 202 on Aug. 20, but the Irishman’s rematch with Nate Diaz was still of massive importance. After being embarrassed by Diaz at UFC 196 in March, McGregor turned in a career-defining performance in another 170-pound contest, winning a majority decision over Diaz in an instant classic. Despite his top spot in the featherweight division, evening the score with Diaz does not assure that McGregor will have a second meeting with Jose Aldo , given that “The Notorious” one is already angling for 155-pound contendership. Donald Cerrone had his third straight welterweight fight in the Octagon and looked brilliant in dispatching Rick Story in the second round. Previously, we announced our preference to continue ranking “Cowboy” at 155 pounds in spite of his recent 170-pound activity.

Curtinhas: Renzo Gracie vai enfrentar Matt Hughes em superluta do ADCC

Depois de ter sido flagrado em um exame antidoping fora do período de competição e outro dentro dessa época, Brock Lesnar recebeu uma punição provisória pela Comissão Atlética de Nevada (NAC, na sigla em inglês) nesta terça-feira. Foi a parte inicial do julgamento que ele receberá da NAC, que revelou ainda que o peso-pesado foi flagrado com clomifeno e hidroxi-clomifeno nos exames realizados em 28 de junho, pouco mais de uma semana antes de sua luta contra Mark Hunt no UFC 200, e em 9 de julho, data do combate. Lesnar pode ser suspenso por até dois anos, além de ter que pagar uma multa de valor ainda não divulgado. Seu advogado, Brian Stegeman, já foi contatado pela NAC e vai trabalhar junto com a entidade para marcar uma data para o julgamento.

Dana White: Ronda Rousey ‘Definitely Not Fighting’ at UFC 205 in New York

The Ultimate Fighting Championship’s highly-anticipated New York debut will have to go forward without Ronda Rousey . That’s according to UFC President Dana White, who closed the door on any possibility of the former women’s bantamweight queen competing at UFC 205 in Madison Square Garden on Nov. 12. “She’s definitely not fighting in New York,” White said on the UFC “Unfiltered” podcast. “I’m actually going to start building the New York card this week. Rousey has been mostly off the radar since her second-round knockout loss to Holly Holm at UFC 193 in Melbourne this past November. The end of the year was initially the target for her return, but now it appears more likely that Rousey won’t fight until early 2017 at the earliest. “Nothing yet,” White said in regards to any official update regarding Rousey’s comeback. The Los Angeles Times recently spoke to Rousey outside of her gym, the Glendale Fighting Club, but the Olympic judoka refused to answer any questions regarding her return. However, according to the report, Rousey will train through the end of the month and make a decision on when she will fight again.
