Joe Rogan Excited That He's Going to be Protested by Westboro Baptist Church | MMAWeekly.com

(Editorial Opinion is that of Ken Pishna and does not reflect the views and principals of MMAWeekly.com or its staff.) Many people freak out when they find out they are going to be protested, but not UFC broadcaster and professional comedian Joe Rogan. He actually welcomes a protest. Of course, he is on a much higher intellectual plane than most of the protesters that are coming out from under a rock to picket his comedy show at the Starlight Theatre on Friday in Kansas City. I don't say that lightly, as Westboro Baptist Church (using the term Church in their name is really an affront to most other religious organizations) uses the URL GodHatesFags.com for its website. Westboro is known for picketing events and even funerals, issuing hate speech toward a wide array of groups from the LGBT+ community, various ethnic and religious groups, U.S. troops and politicians, and more. Regardless of your personal views on these various groups, there are more productive ways to advance the

Sherdog.com’s Pound-for-Pound Top 10

Demetrious Johnson sat on the Ultimate Fighting Championship ’s flyweight throne for 2,142 days -- a historic reign that covered a record 11 title defenses against 10 different opponents and cast him as one of the sport’s pound-for-pound power players. None of it mattered to Henry Cejudo . A little more than two years after being soundly defeated by “Mighty Mouse,” Cejudo made the most of his opportunity in their rematch. The 2008 Olympic gold medalist captured the undisputed flyweight championship with a split decision over Johnson in the UFC 227 co-headliner on Aug. 4 at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, mere miles from where he was born. Cejudo counteracted Johnson’s advantages in the standup department -- he was outstruck 121-80 in total strikes and 81-51 in significant strikes -- with takedowns and top control in the second, fourth and fifth rounds, where he bottled up “Mighty Mouse” and kept his prodigious offensive skills at bay. The loss snapped Johnson’s 13-fight winning streak and pushed him from second to eighth in the latest Sherdog pound-for-pound rankings.

Sherdog’s Official Mixed Martial Arts Rankings - Oh, Henry

For the first time in nearly six years, someone other than Demetrious Johnson has taken up residence in the flyweight penthouse. Henry Cejudo leaned on takedowns and top control, as he captured the undisputed Ultimate Fighting Championship flyweight title with a split decision over Johnson in the UFC 227 co-headliner on Aug. 4 at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. All three cageside judges scored it 48-47: Sal D’Amato and Ron McCarthy for Cejudo, Marcos Rosales for Johnson. The loss snapped a 13-fight winning streak for “Mighty Mouse” and brought an end to his historic reign atop the 125-pound weight class at 2,142 days. Cejudo’s upset makes the 2008 Olympic gold medalist the No. 1 flyweight in the latest Sherdog.com divisional rankings, while Johnson falls to No. 2. Meanwhile, T.J. Dillashaw strengthened his claim as perhaps the greatest bantamweight of all-time, as he knocked out Cody Garbrandt in the first round of their rematch and retained his championship in the main event. Since his controversial split decision defeat to Dominick Cruz in January 2016, Dillashaw has beaten Raphael Assuncao , John Lineker and Garbrandt (twice) in succession.

Geek for Technique: Best Moves at UFC 227 (Prelims)

UFC 227 was one for the history books on Saturday at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, as it marked the end of some heated rivalries and perhaps the beginning of others. The prelims served as a showcase for young talent -- the focus of the latest installment of the Geek for Technique series. Marlon Vera took on Wuliji Buren at 135 pounds. Buren surprisingly controlled most of the first round, but Vera picked up the pace in the second and took home a victory by technical knockout. Late in the middle stanza, Vera trapped Buren against the cage and mixed hooks to the head and body before dropping him with a left hook to the liver. When the Ultimate Fighting Championship signed a wave of new female talent earlier this year, some names popped up as future title contenders. Fighters like Mackenzie Dern and Molly McCann stole the headlines, but few mentioned one of the better prospects to arrive in years: Weili Zhang. The Chinese strawweight faced Danielle Taylor in her promotional debut and dominated much of the fight with lead-hand strikes.

Dana White wonders if Francis Ngannou will ever get back on track after he 'lost his mind'

“Francis Ngannou at the time he was coming up, I believed this guy was going to be the guy, was going to be the heavyweight champion,” White said on the  “UFC Unfiltered” podcast . “He lost his mind. This guy completely lost his mind and started to act – I don’t know – in a way you just don’t act. I completely saw it coming. Obviously Francis Ngannou is a massive, strong, hard-hitting guy, and anything can happen when he gets in there, but Stipe had this thing where he feels completely disrespected. This guy’s always on fire and pissed off at the world and pissed off at us. I saw that coming. I knew he was going (to win).

UFC Interim Welterweight Champ Colby Covington Breaks Silence After UFC 228 Snub

Current Ultimate Fighting Championship welterweight interim champion Colby Covington has been uncharacteristically quiet since the UFC announced that he would not be fighting champion Tyron Woodley next month at UFC 228, and that Woodley would instead be fighting Liverpool’s Darren Till . “Chaos” was originally offered the fight to unify the belts but told the UFC that he was unavailable to fight in September due to the fact he had just undergone nasal surgery. While the decision to deny Covington first crack at the champion may seem harsh, the UFC chose not to hold up the division any longer, with Woodley’s last fight coming over a year ago in July last year against Demian Maia . Covington told MMAJunkie.com that he felt that the UFC were rushing him to accept the fight rather than promoting it to drive interest given the pair’s history. “Why are they trying to rush a camp?” Covington said. “This fight needs a build-up, man. It needs a 12-week promotional build-up. Let me get out there and show that I can promote, and I can market fights and sell fights.

Douglas Lima and the Unshakable Thought of One More Kick

Bellator MMA plans to stage a welterweight grand prix , starting at Bellator 206 on Sept. 29. Excitement surrounds the tournament for fans, observers and the participants, including former welterweight titleholder Douglas Lima . However, his enthusiasm is tinged with regret, as he feels he should be entering the draw as the defending champion, not as one of nine other contenders. Lima’s unanimous decision loss to Rory MacDonald on Jan. 20 still haunts him. “One more kick was all I needed,” he told Sherdog.com, “because the man could barely walk.” Lima peppered the Ultimate Fighting Championship veteran’s left leg with vicious low kicks throughout the first four rounds of the fight. The impacts raised a gruesome hematoma on MacDonald’s shin and left him with a leg that was too weak to stand on. Lima sensed the proverbial blood in the water and admits overzealousness got the best of him. “I think I was too hungry for the finish that I rushed in [and] I pretty much gave him the takedown,” he said. “I knew I had him.

Kevin Hart, Tony Robbins Among New Professional Fighters League Investors

Mark Burnett, Kevin Hart, Tony Robbins Invest in MMA Startup Professional Fighters League https://t.co/gYvSfLxtKM — Variety (@Variety) August 8, 2018 The Professional Fighters League ’s pockets just got a lot deeper after several high profile investors, including the likes of comedian Kevin Hart and life coach Tony Robbins, announced a $28 million investment in the playoffs-based mixed martial arts outfit. PFL, which changed its name from World Series of Fighting last year, has differentiated itself from the likes of Bellator MMA and the Ultimate Fighting Championship by holding point-based regular seasons with a $1 million grand prize for each divisional finalist. The league has a television deal with NBC Sports and has steadily gained the attention of more casual MMA fans over the last few months. With that added attention comes more willing investors; Hart and Robbins are joined by fellow PFL investors Mark Burnett, Chairman of Worldwide Television Group MGM, Ted Leonsis, majority owner of NHL 2018 Stanley Cup Champion Washington Capitals and NBA Washington Wizards, among others.

UFC 227 Proves Favoritism Can Be a Double-Edged Sword

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. * * * A little over nine months ago at a press event held at the iconic Madison Square Garden, Cody Garbrandt sat on stage as one of the Ultimate Fighting Championship ’s handpicked brand ambassadors for the company’s partnership with sports-nutrition company Bodyarmor . It was 10 months after he’d lifted the 135-pound title from Dominick Cruz in a stunning upset at UFC 207, and “No Love” was waxing lyrical with NBA legend and Bodyarmor shareholder Kobe Bryant about what it meant to be a championship athlete. It had been a good year for the Team Alpha Male export. Coming into his fight opposite “The Dominator” on New Year’s Eve, few pundits believed Garbrandt possessed more than a puncher’s chance; the conventional wisdom was that he was too young, too inexperienced and too emotional to pose a serious threat to the longtime king .

Dana White: 'No problem' if Eddie Alvarez wants to finish career outside UFC

“At the end of the day, what we’re looking for here are young guys that want to be world champions,” White said. “Young guys that know they can be a world champion in the UFC. Or girls that know they can be a world champion in the UFC. If you feel that you can’t be and you feel there’s a better decision you can make at this point in your career for the last contract you’ll ever sign, I absolutely understand that.”

Greg Hardy Annihilates Tebaris Gordon on DWTNCS; UFC Awards Three Contracts

Welp, Greg Hardy (2-0) looked frightening tonight. The rightly-maligned former NFL star obliterates Tebaris Gordon in 17 seconds. #DWTNCS pic.twitter.com/p5IFtBd5AP — Tanuki Usman (@Hamderlei) August 8, 2018 Greg Hardy can sling some leather. The disgraced former NFL all-pro destroyed Tebaris Gordon in the first round of their heavyweight feature on Season 2, Week 8 of Dana White’s Contender Series on Tuesday at the UFC Training Center in Las Vegas. Gordon (3-1) succumbed to punches 17 seconds into Round 1. Hardy (2-0) showed no regard for his adversary’s skills. He marched across the Octagon and let his hands go. Gordon did what he could to answer back, but the difference in speed, power and athleticism between the two heavyweights was massive. Hardy connected with a right hand as he flurried, dropped the North Carolinian and closed it out. The 30-year-old Hardy will remain on a developmental deal with the Ultimate Fighting Championship . A winner on season one of the Contender Series, Kennedy Nzechukwu (6-0) returns with a first-round KO of Dennis Bryant! Standing 6'5" with an 82" reach, the Nigerian-American has finished four of six by knockout.

The UFC champion and his cohorts can be heard laughing and giggling as Khabib offers cash to several homeless men, but only under the condition that they do some push-ups first. Nurmagomedov and McGregor will headline UFC 229 on Oct. 6 for the undefeated Dagestani’s lightweight title.

'The Ultimate Fighter' Season 1 Cast Assembles for 14-Year Reunion

#TUF Season 1, then and now 14 years later. Crazy. What a journey! @UFC @DanaWhite pic.twitter.com/BbXolbAydL — Mike Swick (@officialswick) August 9, 2018 The cast of “The Ultimate Fighter” Season 1 may have mostly retired or moved on from MMA, but the majority of cast members assembled for a 14-year reunion this week, and took a photograph to celebrate the occasion. The majority of the cast, including coaches Chuck Liddell and Randy Couture and contestants such as Mike Swick , Chris Leben and Diego Sanchez attended the reunion, while castmates Bobby Southworth , Jason Thacker and Josh Koscheck were not able to make it. The attendees recreated a memorable group photo, 14 years removed from a pivotal moment in Ultimate Fighting Championship and mixed martial arts history. Nearly a decade and a half later, Sanchez still competes in the promotion, while Koscheck signed with Bellator MMA after a losing streak forced him out of the UFC. Leben retired from competition only to re-emerge recently as he prepares for a bare-knuckle boxing bout against fellow former UFC veteran Phil Baroni .

Report: Kajan Johnson Makes Quick Turnaround Against Rustam Khabilov at UFC Moscow

Rustam Khabilov vs Kajan Johnson Rebooked For UFC Moscow - https://t.co/WvXDdrx2gr pic.twitter.com/Hdiq997lmu — MMASucka (@MMASucka) August 8, 2018 Kajan Johnson will be making a quick turnaround as he prepares to take on Rustam Khabilov at UFC Moscow in September after submitting to an armbar by Islam Makhachev on July 28, according to a report by MMASucka . Johnson (23-13-1) was originally scheduled to fight Khabilov back in March, but an injury forced the Dagestani out of the bout at the last minute. Johnson went on to defeat Stevie Ray instead, who filled in on short notice. Prior to the submission loss to Makhachev, “Ragin’” Kajan was on an impressive four-fight winning streak, punctuated by a massive knockout victory over Adriano Martins last year. Meanwhile, Khabilov (22-3) has won five fights in a row himself, but hasn’t fought since September 2017, making the fight with Johnson almost a year to the day since his last fight. UFC Moscow will take place on Sept. 15 and will be the promotion’s first event on Russian soil. The card will be headlined by a heavyweight clash between Mark Hunt and Aleksei Oleinik.

The Fertittas cashed in on their investment in July 2016, when they sold the UFC to William Morris Endeavor and International Management Group (WME-IMG) for a staggering $4 billion. Yes, billion with a “B.”

Georges St-Pierre would return for Khabib-Conor winner, not Anderson Silva or Nate Diaz

“(Silva doesn’t interest me) right now,” St-Pierre said. “This fight was interesting at a certain point, when I had a lot of contenders in my division. And this fight, if it would have been made, I wanted it to be made with extra performance-enhancing drug testing, which the UFC was not a fan about because they didn’t want WADA to be part of it, before USADA was in. And also at a catchweight – that was my thing. Because as a fighter, it’s very hard to, if you’re an active fighter, competing every few months, to go up, down, up, down – they don’t want to do that. I guess I wanted to do it with extra testing and they didn’t have the testing at the time. That’s why this fight never happened.
