Liam McGeary to Defend LHW Title vs. Phil Davis in Bellator 163 Headliner

Liam McGeary will defend his light heavyweight crown against Phil Davis in the Bellator 163 main event on Nov. 4, promotion officials announced Friday. Bellator 163 takes place at Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Conn., and will also feature a welterweight clash between Saad Awad and Brennan Ward as well as a women’s featherweight showdown pitting Marloes Coenen against Talita Nogueira . The main card will air on Spike TV at 9 p.m. ET/8 p.m. CT. McGeary captured the 205-pound strap with a unanimous decision victory against Emanuel Newton at Bellator 134. He made his first title defense at Bellator 142 “Dynamite” a little more than a year ago, submitting Tito Ortiz 4:41 into the opening stanza. The unbeaten British champion has been sidelined by injury since then. Davis initially earned a title shot by stopping Newton and Francis Carmont in a one-night light heavyweight contender tournament at Bellator 142 “Dynamite.” However, due to McGeary’s extended absence, Davis outpointed Muhammad Lawal at Bellator 154 to solidify his No.

Preview: UFC Fight Night ‘Cyborg vs. Lansberg’ - Cyborg vs. Lansberg

Cristiane Justino personifies ferocity perhaps better than any other fighter in mixed martial arts, male or female. “Cyborg” wields a special kind of savagery. The reigning Invicta Fighting Championships featherweight titleholder will make her second appearance inside the Ultimate Fighting Championship in a headlining gig opposite Lina Lansberg on Saturday at Nilson Nelson Gymnasium in Brasilia, Brazil. Their catchweight clash at 140 pounds sits atop the UFC Fight Night “Cyborg vs. Lansberg” card, as the UFC heads to South America for the first time since May. In the featherweight co-main event, Nova Uniao standout Renan Barao locks horns with “The Ultimate Fighter 8” finalist Phillipe Nover . The rest of the six-fight main draw features a heavyweight tilt pairing Roy Nelson with Antonio Silva , a lightweight encounter slotting Francisco Trinaldo against Paul Felder , a middleweight battle matching Thiago Santos with Eric Spicely and a featherweight affair pitting Godofredo Castro against Mike de la Torre .

He also thanked Dana White for a “very generous birthday gift,” which seemed to suggest that rankings had trumped the promise of a spike in pay-per-view sales, and that he’d’ been given the title shot over McGregor.

Opinion: Cash Versus Control Ahead of the Big Apple

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. * * * The Ultimate Fighting Championship has spent nearly two decades over two ownership groups untangling red tape, bad ideas and politically vested interests towards one goal: the UFC inside Madison Square Garden. Seven years in a row, buttressed by the Fertitta brothers' money and political clout, bills legalizing mixed martial arts in New York passed the state's Senate, but never made it beyond the State Assembly until this past March 22, when it finally passed and Gov. Andrew Cuomo put pen to paper a few weeks later. And that was supposed to be that. While there were large preparations and logistical struggles forthcoming for the New York State Athletic Commission as the office began to regulate the sport, no one ever expected the UFC's Nov. 12 date at MSG to get pushed back once it was on the books. However, the UFC's milestone moment is now mired in a new kind of controversy and it's not due to political forces external to MMA.

10 Badass Facts About UFC Heavyweight Champ Stipe Miocic

Heavyweight class carries the most weight not just in the world of mixed matial arts, but in all martial arts, fights and champions in this category always get a lot of well-deserved attention, so being a Ultimate Fighting Championship Heavyweight champion is definitely reserved only for the biggest, hardest, toughest badasses. When Stipe Miocic knocked out Fabricio Werdum at UFC 198 and grabbed that title belt, becoming only the 15th man to do so, the whole MMA world took notice of the Ohio-born fighter, and we started digging for 10 badass facts about new heavyweight champ Stipe Miocic . Most strikes landed in a single fight Even if Miocic didn't win the UFC Heavyweight title he would have his name in the history books of MMA as he managed to land most strikes in a single fight - 361! Mark Hunt had the misfortune to be on the receiving end of Miocic's rampage, he got hit 119 times in third round only, and the bout ended with the largest strike margin in UFC history - +315 for Miocic. He came to UFC as undefeated Before coming to the UFC Miocic was undefeated with a 6-0 record, and he finished first five of them with knockouts in first and second rounds of bouts.

Legacy Fighting Championship, Resurrection Fighting Alliance Merge to Form New Promotion

Two of mixed martial arts’ top regional promotions are joining forces. Legacy Fighting Championship and Resurrection Fighting Alliance announced Monday that the organizations are merging to form Legacy Fighting Alliance. The new promotion will officially launch in January 2017; RFA President Ed Soares will serve as CEO, while Sven Bean will be the chief operating officer. "This is an exciting day for everyone involved," Soares said. "What our two companies have accomplished individually is remarkable, but the sky is truly the limit when you consider what will come next. "Our athletes will have an unrivaled platform to compete in front of a nationally televised audience — not to mention in more than 40 countries around the world — and prove they are worthy of a spot at the sport's highest level. Our existing companies have placed more than 100 fighters in just the UFC and Bellator, alone. Quite simply, for the fighters on our roster, the future is now.” Both Legacy FC and RFA aired on AXS-TV, and nothing will change on that front, as the network has retained exclusive rights to air Legacy Fighting Alliance events next year.

Aussies Whittaker, Matthews, Kelly Targeted for UFC Fight Night in Melbourne

At least three Australians will compete in the Octagon when the UFC travels to Melbourne on Nov. 27. Tom Wright, general manager for operations in Canada, Australia and New Zealand, confirmed to the Herald Sun on Tuesday that Robert Whittaker , Jake Matthews and Daniel Kelly will be on the UFC Fight Night 101 card, which takes place at Rod Laver Arena. None of the three fighters have opponents as of yet. UFC Fight Night is headlined by a middleweight rematch between ex-champ Luke Rockhold and Ronaldo Souza . Rockhold wrested the Strikeforce strap from “Jacare” in their first meeting under the Strikeforce banner in September 2011. Whittaker, 25, is a rising contender in the middleweight division. The Sydney native has won five straight fights, including back-to-back decision victories over Rafael Natal and Uriah Hall in his last two outings. “The Reaper” owns a 7-2 overall mark during his promotional tenure. The 22-year-old Matthews is 4-2 in the Octagon but is coming off a first-round technical knockout loss to Kevin Lee at “The Ultimate Fighter 23” finale on July 8.

Liam McGeary to Defend LHW Championship Against Phil Davis Nov. 4 in CT | MMA News from Bellator

It wouldn't feel like a complete Bellator MMA card in Connecticut without New London's own, "Irish" Ward. The 28-year-old former NCAA All-American lives just 10 miles from Mohegan Sun Arena, where he has emerged victorious four times, including three knockouts and one submission. A 12-fight veteran of Bellator MMA, Ward has recorded wins in four of his last five bouts dating back to 2015, highlighted by a pair of first round KO's at Mohegan Sun Arena. With 12 of the welterweight's 13 career victories coming by way of knockout and submission, look for Ward to attack early and often when he enters the cage in front of friends and family on November 4.

Early this morning, reigning Invicta featherweight champion Cris “Cyborg” Justino took to the scale to weigh in for her for sophomore UFC effort, a 140-lb. catchweight bout with Swedish striker Lina Lansberg . Despite plenty of doubt to the contrary , the Brazilian made weight, taking full advantage of the bout’s 1-lb. allowance and tipping the scale at 141. This, of course, is a major relief, as Lansberg suggested she would not take the fight if Cyborg failed to make the contracted weight.

CES MMA 38 Weigh-in Results: UFC Vet Soriano On Point, Makashvili Heavy

New England-based CES MMA returns to the limelight on Friday with another night of solid fisticuffs. CES MMA 38 will be headlined by a pair of Ultimate Fighting Championship veterans looking to get back on the sport’s biggest stage. Sean Soriano entered the famed Octagon after winning his first eight pro MMA fights, but the Blackzilian fighter hit a wall and lost three straight. He was released from the UFC and is in desperate need of a win after going 1-1 in the Legacy FC cage. Standing opposite of Soriano will be Levan Makashvili , who went 1-1-1 under the UFC umbrella. The Mutant MMA representative bounced back with a win over Ryan Sanders at CES MMA 36 in June and wants to keep things rolling. At Thursday’s weigh-ins. Only one of the main event combatants was on point. Soriano clocked in at the scale officially right on the featherweight limit at 145 pounds. Makashvili, however, weighed in at 147 pounds, though their contest will go on as expected. As of this writing, there was no official word on any penalty against Makashvili and promotion officials didn’t inform Sherdog.

38 Joanna Jedrzejczyk vs. Karolina Kowalkiewicz Set for UFC 205

The biggest fight in Polish and European MMA history looks set to take place at UFC 205 Nov. 12 in Madison Square Garden. Sources close to FloCombat have revealed that a UFC strawweight title fight is set to take place at the historic event, with the champion, Joanna Jedrzejczyk, taking on fellow Pole, Karolina Kowalkiewicz, in the first ever all-European title fight inside the UFC Octagon.  Jedrzejczyk (12-0) and Kowalkiewicz (10-0) are both unbeaten as professionals and walk into the fight on hot streaks in the UFC.  Jedrzejczyk is 6-0 in the eight-sided cage, while Kowalkiewicz has won all three of her contests there.  Jedrzejczyk last fought back in July, where she defeated her longtime rival Claudia Gadelha via unanimous decision at The Ultimate Fighter 23: Team Joanna vs Team Claudia finale. Prior to that, the Jedrzejczyk won the belt in April 2015 against Carla Esparza at UFC 185, and then had successful defenses against Jessica Penne and Valerie Letourneau.   Her opponent Nov. 12 will be the former KSW champion, Karolina Kowalkiewicz, who debuted in the UFC in December 2015 at UFC on Fox 17: dos Anjos vs Cerrone.

Report: Ronda Rousey Has Been Offered a Title Fight with Amanda Nunes at UFC 207 | BJPenn.com

Should Rousey accept this fight, she’ll have the chance to reclaim the bantamweight title she once guarded so ferociously. Her defeating Nunes, of course, is not a foregone conclusion. With 10 first-round victories among her 13 career triumphs, Nunes is perhaps the only fighter in the division that can match Rousey’s propensity for abrupt stoppage wins. Given that the former champ will also probably have to deal with some ring-rust, this comeback fight will surely be a serious challenge.

UFC Exec Tom Wright: Georges St. Pierre Not a Lock to Headline UFC 206 in Toronto

It appears the date and venue for Georges St. Pierre ’s comeback fight in the UFC is still far from a certainty. The former welterweight champion recently told “UFC Tonight” that he was targeting UFC 206 , which takes place at the Air Canada Centre in Toronto on Dec. 10, for his prospective return. However, St. Pierre’s return largely hinges on his ability to negotiate a deal with the Las Vegas-based promotion, and so far there hasn’t been any news from either party on that front. Tom Wright, general manager for UFC operations in Canada, Australia and New Zealand, believes that UFC 206 will be fine even if a native star like St. Pierre doesn’t headline the card. "We don't need a Canadian necessarily to headline the event," Wright, who was in Australia to promote the Nov. 27 UFC Fight Night card, told Submission Radio . "The last event that we had in Canada did not feature around a Canadian, so frankly it's no different than here [in Australia]. Our fans are sophisticated fans in Canada and they're knowledgeable and sophisticated here in Australia.

Opinion: Time for the UFC to Look Over its Shoulder

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. * * * The Ultimate Fighting Championship should probably start looking over its shoulder right about now because Bellator MMA is coming -- not today or tomorrow, not next month or next year, but the Scott Coker -led promotion is coming. It starts quietly and slowly ramps up, and before you know it, you’re looking over your shoulder when it’s too late. You can shrug off Bellator as a non-threat, but sooner or later, it will be nipping at your heels if you aren’t careful, and the UFC better start paying attention because Bellator isn’t here to compete; it’s here to win. Right now, it all sounds a little ridiculous to think that Bellator can actively compete with the UFC. The same was said in the mid-1990s when World Championship Wrestling sought to compete with the World Wrestling Federation. However, steps were slowly taken to snare away the recognizable talent from Vince McMahon’s clutches while welcoming some of the other talent that didn’t get its just due.

Sherdog’s Official Mixed Martial Arts Rankings - Dunham Ducks Back Into the Elite

The University of Oregon football team may have lost its game to Nebraska 35-32 on Sept. 17, but that same night, at least one Oregon Duck showed out. Evan Dunham began his professional MMA career in April 2007. Four months later, Sherdog.com debuted these divisional rankings. For the majority of that nine-year period, Dunham has bounced in and out of this lightweight top 10. With his UFC Fight Night 94 win over Rick Glenn paired with previously 10th-ranked Dustin Poirier ’s loss to Michael Johnson , Dunham slides back into a comfy position in our top 10 once again. However, Dunham’s newest stint as a top-10 talent may be short-lived, just as his others were. The Oregonian is a threat to anyone at 155 pounds, and his inability to stay put in these rankings is not a slight on the fighter himself but rather an indicator of the depth, talent and constant upheaval at 155 pounds. As always, the lightweight division has a series of major bouts on deck, both inside and outside the UFC. Over the course of the next two months, fights such as Michael Chandler - Benson Henderson , Beneil Dariush - Rashid Magomedov and Paul Felder - Francisco Trinaldo could quickly give the bottom half of the top 10 a complete facelift.
