Luke Rockhold-Michael Bisping Scrap Set for UFC Fight Night in Australia on Nov. 8

Luke Rockhold will face Michael Bisping on Nov. 8. | Dave Mandel/Sherdog.com Luke Rockhold and Michael Bisping have been trading verbal jabs for some time now. In approximately two months, the middleweight rivals will trade punches for real inside the Octagon. The UFC announced on Friday that Rockhold and Bisping will headline a Nov. 8 UFC Fight Night event in Sydney, Australia. No other bouts have been announced for the card, which takes place at the Allphones Arena and airs on UFC Fight Pass. Rockhold had originally been rumored for a showdown with former 185-pound No. 1 contender Lyoto Machida , but that pairing did not come to fruition. A former Strikeforce middleweight titlist, Rockhold enters the bout on a two-fight winning streak. After suffering a brutal knockout loss to Vitor Belfort in his promotional debut, the American Kickboxing Academy product has posted back-to-back first round stoppages against Costas Philippou and Tim Boetsch in 2014. After nearly a year on the sidelines due to eye surgery, Bisping dropped a five-round verdict to Tim Kennedy in his Octagon return at “The Ultimate Fighter: Nations” finale in April.

UFC Fight Night ‘Jacare vs. Mousasi 2’ Notebook: Address Change

Alistair Overeem has won nine of his last 11 fights. | Photo: Dave Mandel/Sherdog.com Alistair Overeem takes inventory often. The former Strikeforce champion and 2010 K-1 World Grand Prix winner will carry the Jackson-Wink MMA flag into battle for the first time when he faces Ben Rothwell in the UFC Fight Night “Jacare vs. Mousasi 2” co-main event on Friday at the Foxwoods Resort Casino in Mashantucket, Conn. A look in the mirror led to Overeem’s latest change in address, as he shifted his training camp to the Greg Jackson- and Mike Winkeljohn-led powerhouse. “One of my strengths is -- and I’ve done that a couple of times in my career -- to re-evaluate everything and just go in a new direction ... and not go in a new direction [at] 50 percent but go [at] 120 percent,” Overeem said during the “Countdown to Fight Night” program. “That’s what I just did.” Overeem had juggled the idea of joining the Albuquerque, N.M.-based team for some time, though a detour to the Blackzilians and fights against the Jackson-trained Travis Browne and Frank Mir delayed a possible move.

UFC Fight Night 50: Mousasi says fight with Rockhold makes sense

I think it makes sense. Lyoto just got his title shot and is coming off a loss. If I win, and with Luke being on a two fight winning streak, I think he and I will be the best contenders, and of course, that's a fight that people want to see, so it makes perfect sense to me.

Bellator 123 video stream and live results

Lawal, though, wasn’t as reserved with his striking in the second round, and it quickly paid dividends. A few jabs and overhand punches connected crisply, and Lawal staggered Jacoby with a right hand and and forced him to the mat. After a quick barrage of Lawal’s follow-up shots, Jacoby was told to fight back. But trapped against the cage with little room to recover or escape, Jacoby was stuck, and the bout was waved off shortly after.

Info

Hi, my name is Randy and I am a 29 year old high school teacher and wrestling coach from Southern California. Unfortunately, I was recently diagnosed with Glioblastoma Multiform (GBM) Grade 4. Around mid April, Southern California went through a series of heat waves. During that period, I began to experience headaches on a daily basis. I very rarely have headaches (1 or 2) a year, so I assumed they were just from my allergies. As the days went on, my headaches were getting worse and no over the counter medicine was relieving the pain. One day in the middle of May, I was driving on the freeway and had difficulties staying in my lane and my headaches were becoming unbearable, so I checked into urgent care. The physicians ordered a CTSCAN and found a mass tumor in my right parietal lobe of my brain. They then rushed me to another facility for Neurosurgery and operated on me the following day and my surgeon removed 90-95% of the Tumor. I felt like the worst was behind me and I was in the clear. A few days later my pathology test came back with the unfortunate news that I have GBM Grade 4, a form of cancer that is considered in the medical world to be incurable.

Morning Report: Chael Sonnen reflects on his career, talks retirement, Metamoris and Wanderlei Silva

"For me, I prefer to be the heel. I just have always preferred to incite them and make them angry. I had death threats in Brazil, but if you're a heel, this is a major win. What's stronger than that? It's always fun for me. One thing I picked up on was that nobody else wanted that. If you're up there competing for popularity, well, everybody wants to be liked. Everyone wants to be patted on the back. Now you're competing with everybody. If you go to the other end of the pool, you can have the water all to yourself. I became the biggest heel in MMA and possibly in sports kind of by just swimming down there and saying, 'Well, I want to be down here.' If I could do it over again, I'd definitely chose the same route. I might have laid it on a bit thicker at times but I would never go back."

UFC Fight Night Results: ‘Jacare vs. Mousasi 2’ Play-by-Play & Updates

Rafael Natal vs. Chris Camozzi Round 1 The middleweights trade leg kicks in the opening moments, then Natal goes to the body of Camozzi with a kick before switching from southpaw back to orthodox stance. Ninety seconds in, Natal tags Camozzi with a long left hand, but Camozzi snaps back and hits the Brazilian with a pair of punches and a hard leg kick inside. Natal tries to grab a single-leg, can’t keep hold, and instead hits Camozzi with a right hook to the gut. A right upstairs bloodies the nose of Camozzi, who defends a takedown attempt with his back to the fence. The fighters separate midway through the round. Camozzi ducks under a wide right hand but gets taken down anyway as Natal powers into a big double-leg near the fence. Natal moves to take his kneeling opponent’s back, then stays glued to Camozzi as the American gets back up. Camozzi reverses to take the outside position in the clinch and hits Natal with a few short right hands before breaking off. Camozzi gets the last word in the round with a pair of inside leg kicks. Sherdog Scores Brian Knapp scores the round 10-9 Natal Chris Nelson scores the round 10-9 Natal Jeff Sherwood scores the round 10-9 Natal Round 2 Natal opens the round with a pair of low kicks and a right hand to Camozzi’s ribs.

Thiago Silva Returns to UFC, Targets January for Next Octagon Appearance

Thiago Silva is back in the UFC. | Marcelo Alonso/Sherdog.com Now that he is officially a free man, Thiago Silva is once again a part of the Ultimate Fighting Championship roster. Silva’s training team, The Blackzilians, announced the news via Instagram on Friday, and Sherdog.com subsequently confirmed the fighter's return with a UFC official. “We are proud to announce that Thiago Silva is officially back with the UFC,” the Blackzilians’ post read. “We are truly thankful to the UFC and hope to see him fighting again by January.” Silva was released by the Las Vegas-based promotion after he was arrested on Feb. 6. On Thursday ,all charges stemming from an alleged altercation with his estranged wife, Thaysa Kamiji, and jiu-jitsu school owner Pablo Popovitch were dropped by a Florida judge.

After initially being charged with two felony counts of attempted murder, the charges were downgraded to aggravated assault with a firearm and aggravated battery with a deadly weapon.

Fight Night Foxwoods Study Guide

Joe Lauzon has long been regarded as one of the one of the best submission specialists and overall dangerous fighters in the UFC. J-Lau finished his first NINE wins in the Octagon and didn’t post a decision victory until his December 2013 win over Mac Danzig. Following that win, Lauzon decided to take some time away from the Octagon to tend to his newborn son, Joey, who was diagnosed with neuroblastoma, the most common cancer in infancy. Fast forward to July, and little Joey has, in Joe’s words, “kicked cancer’s ass.” And now that Lauzon has helped little Joey through his battle, he is ready to step back onto the battlefield himself and make one more run at the lightweight title. A win over up-and-coming fighter Michael Chiesa in Foxwoods could propel Lauzon into the top 15.

Charles Oliveira not Cleared by Doctors to Compete, Rematch with Nik Lentz Scrapped

Charles Oliveira was not cleared by doctors to compete against Nik Lentz at UFC Fight Night “Mousasi vs. Jacare,” therefore the fight has been canceled. Ultimate Fighting Championship officials announced the change hours before the event on Friday. Oliviera missed weight by four pounds on Thursday and was forced to forfeit 20 percent of his purse to Lentz. The Brazilian was reportedly recuperating from a viral infection he contracted in Brazil. His illness relapsed earlier this week and caused him to miss the mark of 146. Oliviera did not attempt to weigh in again. According to the UFC, Oliviera became sick again, and after being seen by a doctor he was forced out of the bout. This is the third instance in two weeks where a fighter has suffered complications that have involved missing weight. Henry Cejudo was removed from his bout with Scott Jorgensen after falling ill due to a weight cut, as was Renan Barao after injuring himself cutting weight prior to his title fight with T.J. Dillashaw at UFC 177.

Lightweights James Vick, Nick Hein Added to UFC Fight Night in Austin

James Vick is shooting for his third UFC victory. | Photo: Dave Mandel/Sherdog.com A lightweight contest featuring James Vick and Nick Hein has been added to UFC Fight Night in Austin, Texas, on Nov. 22. Ultimate Fighting Championship officials Friday announced the new bout. The card takes place at Frank Erwin Center on the University of Texas campus and also includes a pivotal flyweight bout between Joseph Benavidez and Dustin Ortiz . Vick is coming off of a spirited unanimous decision victory against Valmir Lazaro at last month’s UFC Fight Night “Henderson vs. dos Anjos” event. “The Texicutioner” is undefeated in his mixed martial arts career, including two wins under the UFC banner. Hein has tasted defeat only once in his 13-fight career. “The Sergeant” was victorious against Drew Dober in his Octagon debut at UFC Fight Night “Munoz vs. Mousasi” in May. “He is a strong opponent, but the Sergeant is back on track and somebody will get arrested,” Hein told UFC.com about the tilt. “I’m looking forward to the fight, he’s a very good fighter and I always wanted to go to Texas -- but this won’t be no sightseeing trip.

Joe Lauzon's game plan: Win tonight, Chiesa pays for Fuddruckers, attend presser

“I don’t care,” he said. “It doesn’t do any good selling the fight if he goes, ‘Joe Lauzon is going to kick my ass.’ I don’t really care. I think that if you become emotional, I feel like you make bad decisions sometimes. But I never get caught up in it. I think it’s a little fun to focus on each other. It makes it a little more enjoyable.
