ONE: UNBREAKABLE WARRIORS is set to electrify fight fans in Malaysia’s capital city with a world-class event headlined by the nation’s own Ev “E.T.” Ting as he takes on Rob Lisita in the main event.
Donald Cerrone isn’t going anywhere – at least not any time soon.
With just one fight remaining on his deal following a second-round TKO of Rick Story at UFC 202 this past Saturday, Cerrone (31-7 MMA, 18-4 UFC) has opted not to fight out the final bout, then enter free agency. Instead, “Cowboy” has re-upped for eight more fights inside the octagon.
Cristiane Justino is once again beating the drum for the UFC to introduce a 145-pound women’s featherweight division.
Justino (16-1 MMA, 1-0 UFC), the current Invicta FC featherweight champ, made her official and long-awaited UFC debut at UFC 198 in May, when she stopped Leslie Smith by first-round TKO in a 140-pound catchweight fight.

The UFC will have its second foray into the Philippines on October 15, and the card headlined by B.J. Penn vs. Ricardo Lamas is shaping up. Two more bouts have been added making 11 bouts total that are official for the Manila event.
The Philippines has produced many notable boxers throughout the years, including Francisco “Pancho Villa” Guilledo, Gabriel "Flash" Elorde and eight-division world champion Manny Pacquiao.
Although the country has become a breeding ground of world-class boxers, it is quickly carving a niche in other combat sports, particularly in mixed martial arts (MMA).
DUBLIN -- The hour was well after most sane folks had long since fallen asleep. But toward the end of the second round of the UFC 202 rematch between Conor McGregor and Nate Diaz, those gathered at The Living Room must have felt like they were having nightmares.
A look at the technical evolution of Brazil’s finest mixed martial artist through the lens of three pivotal bouts.
Jose Aldo’s fall from grace has been unbefitting a fighter of his caliber. The greatest featherweight in the sport’s history – and also its greatest technician (sorry, Mighty Mouse) – Aldo was unfortunate enough to attract mainstream attention at precisely the wrong moment. Namely, ahead of his now-infamous 13-second knockout at the hands of reigning lightweight champion Conor McGregor.
05 July 2017 – Surabaya, Indonesia: The largest sports media property in Asian history, ONE Championship™ (ONE), has just announced additional bouts for ONE: CONQUEST OF KINGS.

Boxer Adrien Broner suggested that he’d be interested in fighting Nate Diaz on the Conor McGregor vs. Floyd Mayweather undercard. Sort of.
If you follow boxing much, you’ll know that former four-division champion Adrien Broner is not a stranger to saying controversial things. The oft-maligned Broner (33-2, 1 NC, 24 KO) fights undefeated Mikey Garcia lightweight champ (36-0, 30 KO) at 140 pounds in July, but in a conversation with TMZ Sports, he said he’d like another fight right after that - on the undercard of the Floyd Mayweather vs. Conor McGregor megafight on August 26th
Pinoys win in Macao
Filipino mixed martial artists fought well in ONE Championship’s ONE: HEROES OF THE WORLD in Macao, China.
Mirsad Bektic will be able to open up the UFC 204 pay-per-view broadcast, after all. The highly touted featherweight prospect had lost two opponents on this October 8th card to injury, but UFC officials were able to book Russell Doane to fight Bektic just a few days out from fight night. MMAjunkie reported the news on Tuesday.
Sarah Kaufman is a free agent after the UFC did not re-sign her to a new contract, and wherever she lands next, she's plans on changing weight classes.
He may be 38 years old, but Josh Barnett is still one of the top heavyweights in the world. And he proved it again on Saturday with his submission victory over Andrei Arlovski at UFC Fight Night 93 in Hamburg, Germany.
Mark Hunt is still winning at 43 years old. Now he wants payback against Alistair Overeem, a fighter he labels “a cheat.”
Mark Hunt might just be ageless.
When he exited the Octagon last night, Hunt walked away with a win at UFC Auckland, stopping the ascent of a potential title contender in Derrick Lewis. Not only did he win, but Hunt finished his opponent in a late round at the ripe age of 43.
Al Iaquinta’s return to the UFC has been accompanied by a return to open hostility with the promotion.
When Al Iaquinta effectively retired from the UFC back in September of 2016, the reasons seemed fairly obvious. He wasn’t happy. Negotiations for a new contract had turned sour and, for him, fighting was no longer worth the money. Despite being scheduled for a fight later that year (against Thaigo Alves at UFC 205), Iaquinta chose to hang up his gloves instead, and give real estate sales a try.
Despite the injuries he is currently dealing with, Al Iaquinta is confident about his chances in a possible fight against Kajan Johnson
UFC lightweight Al Iaquinta just put on what could be the best performance of his career last April, when he knocked out veteran Diego Sanchez in the first round. But as of right now, his immediate fighting future remains uncertain.
