Kevin Lee has been talking about moving up a weight class for some time, and ‘The Motown Phenom’ will finally make his transition to 170-pounds when he takes on Rafael dos Anjos this weekend at UFC Fight Night 152.
B.J. Penn has been in the middle of multiple legal issues lately. The former two-division UFC champion has an active restraining order against him, which was recently extended until October of 2021. His estranged partner detailed numerous disturbing allegations including drug abuse, threats, verbal and physical abuse, and sexual coercion.
Skill proved no match for brawn after Jessica Andrade lifted Rose Namajunas off her feet then slammed her onto the cage floor to score a knockout.
Namajunas kept Andrade at bay in the first round of their strawweight world title UFC 237 main event Saturday (Sunday Manila time) with her precise punching. In the second round, however, Andrade who continually pressed forward authored a dramatic come-from-behind victory.
UFC 238 already had two title fights on the card, but it seemed a little thin from a “big name” measure. Despite the fact that the card goes down in less than a month, the UFC has decided to add a pretty huge lightweight fight to the card to beef that up - Donald Cerrone vs. Tony Ferguson
It’s been a terrible start to the year for T.J. Dillashaw, and things are only getting worse.
After being knocked out by flyweight king Henry Cejudo in a champ vs. champ superfight at UFC Fight Night 143, Dillashaw was found to have taken EPO in relation to the bout, and was subsequently suspended two years by the United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA).
Rarely will the UFC try to schedule the same one fight four times, but that is reportedly the case with Yoel Romero vs. Paulo Costa.
The two middleweight contenders have verbally agreed to a bout at UFC 241, multiple sources told ESPN’s Ariel Helwani. UFC officials then announced the fight on Tuesday evening.
Many fans seem to think Saturday night’s contest between Canelo Alvarez and Daniel Jacobs was a lot closer than DAZN’s commentary team would have led the audience to believe.
Alvarez, whose lone defeat in the boxing ring came to Floyd Mayweather Jr. back in 2013, won a unanimous decision (115-113, 115-113, 116-112) to win the IBF middleweight title, but it wasn’t quite the blowout Sergio Mora and Brian Kenny portrayed in the commentary booth.
Israel Adesanya is getting sick of fans criticising him for having never fought Yoel Romero.
The newly-crowned interim UFC middleweight champion recently went at it with a couple of Robert Whittaker fans on social media, where he insinuated that ‘Soldier of God’ uses performance-enhancing drugs (PEDs).
