Gabriel Gonzaga will be the latest UFC veteran to try his hand at the Sweet Science. According to a release, the former heavyweight title challenger will make his professional boxing debut on the “New England’s Future 4” card, which takes place at the DCU Center in Worcester, Mass., on Oct. 26.

‘TUF 26’ Recap: Episode 3

With the series tied at 1-1, Episode 3 of “The Ultimate Fighter” Season 26 saw the Eddie Alvarez -coached Ariel Beck square off with the Justin Gaethje -led Montana Stewart . The No. 6 seed Stewart lives in trains in Texas. We learn of her journey to mixed martial arts was one that started through high school wrestling. The 22-year-old transitioned to MMA after a successful amateur wrestling career took her all the way to the nationals, where she finished third. Despite the opportunity to wrestle while going to college, Stewart made the choice to stay home and continue to raise her young daughter. With 11 fights on her books, the 7-4 Stewart is favored to win her opening round matchup. Coach Gaethje shares his thoughts on how he feels Montana will not only win this fight, but how she has the ability to go far in the tournament. While confidence is high for Stewart, it appears to be non-existent for the Montana native Beck. While the rest of Beck’s team is working out, she finds herself in the back suffering from a panic attack. Alvarez assistant coach Rich Pohler asks Beck if these are common.

Mike Winkeljohn defends Jon Jones, doubts he'd fight again after 4-year ban

“As far as taking steroids, what he’s been busted for is, you know, taking a Viagra Cialis from Mexico that had something in it. That’s not steroids, but it came up that way. And if I had to guess, it’s going to come out that there’s been something that he took to re-hydrate himself after his cut or somewhere in that style, that time that was some kind of – what do I want to say – some kind of substance that he thought was just a supplement, that someone said, ‘Hey, this will make you feel better. It’s got electrolytes in it and stuff.’

Daniel Cormier Urges Fans to Show Compassion for Rival Jon Jones

Life can be such a roller coaster. I think sometimes you have to just take a moment and breathe it in. You never know what's gonna come your way. You try and handle it the best way you can. One thing that has been amazing is the support from you the fans. I have never felt so much love. It's crazy because this all happened when I lost. Guys now I call upon you to take a breathe, lay off of Jones. Let him and his team figure out what's going on and what happened. I was down and some may have kicked me but the majority of you showed compassion and love. After the fight Jones showed compassion, regardless of what has happened as humans we must show compassion. Jon is not on this ride alone, remember this man has a family. Let's respect that. You don't show ur support for me by hurting others. Again I thank you for ur unbelievable support and I trust that you guys will come thru again. DC @layziethesavage

He’s a consummate professional. He’s a fantastic athlete. He’s probably stretching everyday. He’s probably eating (expletive) egg whites every morning. I’m cut from the other side of the cloth.

Michael Bisping Believes Jon Jones Should Be Banned for Life | MMAWeekly.com

“Yes, outside of the Octagon he’s made some very, very bad decisions and unfortunately this is one that isn’t gonna go away for a long time. I think he’s looking at a four-year suspension. And it’s fair to say there’s no smoke without fire. This isn’t his first time. So, I guess we’re gonna see how this thing unfolds, but it’s not looking good.”

Luke Rockhold Rips Georges St-Pierre for UFC Middleweight Title Fight | MMAWeekly.com

Most people wouldn’t argue that St-Pierre deserves an immediate title shot upon his return, especially following the Hall of Fame type career that he has already forged. Had he returned at welterweight, where he ruled the roost for years, and received an immediate title shot, nary a soul would have batted an eye. At middleweight, however, it’s another story altogether.

Twitter Mailbag: Is this too high a price to pay for a clean(er) UFC?

The U.S. Anti-Doping Agency thing is a different matter. With some of the recent suspensions, I think a lot of people have started to wonder just how clean they really need this sport to be. We don’t want to feel like every main event is a glorified science experiment, but would that be better than no main events at all?

Daniel Cormier on Jon Jones' situation: 'It’s a death sentence' | BJPenn.com

“You said that he’s going to fight this and he has to,” Cormier told co-host Kenny Florian. “This is a death sentence. If this does what it says it can be, it’s a death sentence. You’re right. This is a very expensive drug. Something that’s not easily found in a supplement. I’ve been in the USADA program for 12 years, I’ve never had these issues. If it was a mistake, you’ve got to be more careful, especially with all the scrutiny that was on him coming back from a suspension. You’ve got to be cautious and careful to expect people to understand. Any more is just ridiculous.”

I don’t know him. I don’t want to f–king know him. He’s a former UFC champion and I’m going to treat him as such and I’m going to prepare for him as such. When I go inside of the cage, I have no respect.”
