Michael Bisping Responds to Luke Rockhold: ‘Try to Claw Your Way Back to the Top’

Michael Bisping has some suggestions for Luke Rockhold after the American Kickboxing Academy product trashed the Englishman’s reign as middleweight champion. Fresh off a victory over former World Series of Fighting two-division David Branch at UFC Fight Night 116 last Saturday, Rockhold appeared on “UFC Tonight,” where he criticized Bisping’s choice of opponents as champion. “I think it’s the worst in UFC history,” Rockhold said. “No one has ever gotten that treatment. No one’s avoided every top contender. He was supposed to fight Jacare. He avoided that. He was supposed to fight Yoel [Romero]. He avoided that. “And somehow he’s getting away from this fight with [Robert] Whittaker. He fought Dan Henderson , the No. 14 ranked at the time, and now he’s going for GSP,” he continued. “He hasn’t done anything. I fought a guy who’s four spots higher than the guy he fought his last title defense.” Bisping upset Rockhold via first-round knockout at UFC 199 to claim the middleweight throne. He took a five-round verdict over Henderson in his first title defense at UFC 204 last October and will face returning former welterweight king Georges St.

Sherdog’s Top 10: UFC Light Heavyweight Title Fights - Top 10

The Ultimate Fighting Championship brought its light heavyweight title to life on Dec. 21, 1997. Twelve men have held the 205-pound championship in the nearly 20 years that have elapsed since, the gold passing from Frank Shamrock , Tito Ortiz , Randy Couture , Vitor Belfort , Chuck Liddell and Quinton Jackson to Forrest Griffin , Rashad Evans , Lyoto Machida , Mauricio Rua , Jon Jones and Daniel Cormier . Jones and Ortiz have enjoyed the longest stays at the top, their combined reigns totaling more than 2,700 days -- the equivalent of seven and a half years. Ortiz held the title from April 14, 2000 until Sept. 26, 2003, retaining it on five separate occasions. Jones possessed the belt from March 19, 2011 until April 28, 2015, when he was stripped over his involvement in a felony hit-and-run incident after eight successful title defenses. The latest installment of the Sherdog Top 10 series examines the best of the best among UFC light heavyweight title fights: *** OTHERS RECEIVING VOTES: Lyoto Machida vs.

‘TUF 26’ Recap: Episode 4

Episode 4 of “The Ultimate Fighter 26” saw Eddie Alvarez ’s team look to even the score when its No. 3 seed, Lauren Murphy , met the Justin Gaethje -led No. 14 seed Nicco Montano . Confidence was high that Murphy would get the job done, so much so that the former Invicta Fighting Championships titleholder admitted she was having issues staying focused in the house. In fact, she finds herself asking the Team Alvarez coaching staff to drill techniques she may utilize when she faces teammate Barb Honchak -- something she sees as inevitable. UFC President Dana White walked us through a video package highlighting Murphy’s rise through the Alaskan MMA scene, her capturing the Invicta bantamweight championship and her bouts inside the Ultimate Fighting Championship. With a wealth of experience and accolades already under her belt, it comes as no surprise that Murphy is expected to do big things in the UFC women’s flyweight division. Seemingly over her head on paper, the 28-year-old Montano has designs on becoming the first fighter to spring an upset in the first round. Training out of the FIT NHB camp in her native New Mexico, she lacks Murphy’s experience with only five pro fights on her resume.

Combate Americas to Hold One-Night Bantamweight Tournament with $100,000 Prize

Combate Americas is brining back the one-night tournament — with a significant cash prize at stake. The promotion announced Tuesday that it will hold an eight-man bantamweight bracket on Nov. 11 in Cancun, Mexico. The winner of the tournament at “Copa Combate” will be awarded a $100,000 grand prize. The event will take place on the 24th anniversary of UFC 1, which was executive produced by UFC co-founder and Combate Americas CEO Campbell McLaren. UFC 1 was also headlined by a one-night, eight-man tournament. “When I launched the UFC 24 years ago, we changed the world and, on November 11, we are going to do so again with a dynamic tournament that assembles a collection of fighters that most deserve to represent their respective countries,” McLaren said in a release. “These fighters will put their national pride on the line with a substantial payoff.” The tournament fighters will be announced at a later date and will feature athletes from the United States, Latin America and Spain. The top four fighters will be seeded based on “worldwide rankings,” according to the release.

Paige VanZant Reveals Title and Cover for Her New Book Due Out in 2018 |

On “Dancing with the Stars”, Paige won hearts when she opened up for the first time about being bullied but there is so much more that she hasn’t shared until now. The journey that brought Paige to the UFC is a stunning story of overcoming tragedy and finding the strength and skills to defend oneself in the face of evil. Within the pages of Rise is a girl who was so severely bullied in highschool she had garbage thrown on her, so tortured she had to move hometowns. She sought refuge but nothing worked until one day, feeling spiritually broken and emotionally shattered, she visited her dad at his gym, and everything changed: she decided to fight back. She became Paige VanZant, a bone-breaking, head-smashing competitor and world renowned fighter.

Jedrzejczyk Wants to Surpass Rousey’s Title Defense Record Before Moving to 125 Pounds

Joanna Jedrzejczyk remains interested in testing herself in the UFC’s recently-added women’s flyweight division, but that move could still be a couple title defenses down the road. The reigning strawweight queen will look to make her sixth successful title defense when she faces Rose Namajunas at UFC 217 in New York on Nov. 4. That would tie her with Ronda Rousey for the most title defenses by a woman in promotion history. The Polish star has been dominant since capturing the title with a knockout victory against Carla Esparza in March 2015, putting her belt on the line against the likes of Jessica Penne , Valerie Letourneau , Claudia Gadelha , Karolina Kowalkiewicz and Jessica Andrade . If she gets by Namajunas at UFC 217, it sounds as though the 30-year-old American Top Team representative is targeting another strawweight title defense in 2018 to surpass Rousey before moving up. “I love Ronda Rousey . We have a very good relationship, and like I said so many times, she has done so much for this sport, for the UFC and not only for the female fighters,” Jedrzejczyk said on UFC Tonight.

Ferguson vs. Lee Remains Headliner at UFC 216 Over Johnson vs. Borg |

There was some concern whether or not Ferguson vs. Lee would remain in the top slot after the UFC rescheduled the flyweight title bout between Demetrious Johnson and Ray Borg for the same night on Oct. 7. As it turns out, Ferguson vs. Lee will stay at the top of the card, while Johnson’s attempt to break the all time title defense record against Borg will remain in the co-main event slot.

3 reasons Edmond Tarverdyan pushing for Ronda Rousey to fight Cris Cyborg is troubling

I don’t know if this is the least plausible or just the most troubling possibility. There are very few good reasons for Rousey to even consider a fight with Cyborg right now. She has paying work outside of MMA, at least for the moment, and easier potential opponents inside it in the event she did want to fight again. And, just to be clear, there are no serious indications Rousey does want to fight. She had one foot out the door even before the Nunes fight. If she were to come back after an extended hiatus, she could probably make almost as much money fighting a fellow celebrity and former MMA star like Gina Carano, who’d be much less likely to punch a deep hole in her face.
