Strawweight Cynthia Calvillo believes her fight against Poliana Botelho will be the hardest one of her career.
UFC strawweight Cynthia Calvillo is ready to get back in the win column at UFC Argentina.
Donald Cerrone is riding the high of his record-breaking win over Mike Perry at UFC Fight Night 139, and ‘Cowboy’ has his sights set on Conor McGregor.
After submitting ‘Platinum’ with a slick armbar in the first round of the co-main event, Cerrone teased of an exciting lightweight matchup but didn’t reveal his potential opponent.
Veteran boxing promoter Oscar De La Hoya believes UFC superstar Conor McGregor could further boost up his brand and subsequent earnings with a streaming service deal.
Last month, boxing superstar Canelo Alvarez signed a landmark deal with streaming service DAZN. The said contract guarantees the Mexican champion $365 million for 11 fights, giving him at least $33 million per fight.
At UFC Denver, Yair Rodriguez and the Korean Zomb
In the main event of UFC Denver, where the promotion was celebrating 25 years of existence, ‘El Pantera’ Yair Rodriguez got back to winning ways by defeating ‘The Korean Zombie’ Chan Sung Jun, a former UFC title challenger, padding his credentials as a potential star of the featherweight division.
With the somewhat shocking departure of former UFC champions Eddie Alvarez and Demetrious Johnson to ONE Championship, it was a matter of time before we found out what was in store for them in their new home.
As it turns out, we didn’t have to wait that long. Ahead of its Singapore card this weekend, ONE has announced that they will be holding two 8-man tournaments in both their lightweight and flyweight divisions. The tournaments were announced via social media, and have a lot of potential for action.
As expected, Daniel Cormier is still the UFC heavyweight champion after submitting Derrick Lewis in the UFC 230 main event.
In the main event of UFC 230, two-division champion Daniel Cormier defended his heavyweight title in unsurprisingly dominant fashion, as he took down fan-favorite Derrick Lewis several times, with the last one leading to a rear-naked choke finish in round two. Lewis was always a massive underdog, and that miracle KO did not come to fruition, as the gulf in skill was just way too wide. If things break his way, then next up is a showdown with Brock Lesnar in 2019, of which March 20th (his 40th birthday) will be his planned retirement date.
Chris Weidman and Daniel Cormier have a date to play Madden before UFC 230 kicks off, and the heavyweight/light heavyweight champ just raised the stakes of the game.
It looks like Chris Weidman has the chance to make some serious money this week. Not just because he’s fighting Jacare Souza on Saturday, in the co-main event of UFC 230, but he’s got another battle set for this Friday, right after the weigh ins.
The co-main event of UFC 230 in New York will feature Long Island native Chris Weidman going up against Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza in a key matchup in the middleweight division. While Jacare lost to Kelvin Gastelum in his last outing, Weidman snapped his three-fight losing streak by choking Gastelum out last year on Long Island, putting himself back into title contention.
What is the UFC going to do with Khabib Nurmagomedov now? The holder of their lightweight title is coming off what could have (and may still have) been a star-making performance at UFC 229, where he bested combat sports superstar Conor McGregor to retain the belt. Their battle became the biggest selling PPV in UFC history.
“The first panacea for a mismanaged nation is inflation of the currency; the second is war. Both bring a temporary prosperity; both bring a permanent ruin. But both are the refuge of political and economic opportunists.”

EVER heard of the apocryphal story of how a frog reacts when dumped into a pot of boiling water vs dumped in a pot of simmering water that is slowly brought to a boil?
This story is often told to demonstrate how change that slowly creeps around us (the simmering water brought to a boil) could catch us unawares and end up turning us into cooked frogs.Read more ...
