    Highly motivating fight for both. Junior gets to show he's still at the top, or Francis truly arrives.

    Cowboy revealed in an Instagram post on Wednesday afternoon that he is currently dealing with a blood infection, which is what forced him out of his welterweight bout with Robbie Lawler ... he expects recovery time to only last one week.


    “Let everyone know this is not an injury,” Cerrone said. “But a super bad infection in my blood. 7 days of IV and I'll be back at it. Working on getting the fight rescheduled.”

    Tyron Woodley vs. Demian Maia for the welterweight title is set for UFC 214.


    That's 3 championship fights, with DC-Jones 2, Cyborg-Evinger.

    Rumor is UFC rushing to do Woodley vs. Maia in July so they could have winner fight GSP at MSG.

    UFC statement on potential Nick Diaz anti-doping violation



    The UFC organization has been notified that the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) has informed Nick Diaz of a potential Anti-Doping Policy violation stemming from Diaz’s alleged accumulation of three Whereabouts Failures within a 12-month period. Diaz, like all other UFC athletes, is enrolled in USADA’s UFC Registered Testing Pool and required to file accurate Whereabouts information in order to be located for out-of-competition, no-notice testing.

    USADA, the independent administrator of the UFC Anti-Doping Policy, will handle the results management and appropriate adjudication of Diaz’s case, who has been provisionally suspended pending the final resolution of this matter. Under the UFC Anti-Doping Policy, there is a full and fair legal process that is afforded to all athletes before any sanctions are imposed. Additional information will be provided at the appropriate time as the process moves forward.

    Be interested to see what the line is on T Wood vs Maia. T-Wood < -150 I'd like. That's a pretty good style matchup for Woodley.

    Think he keeps the fight standing. Maia really has nothing if he can't grapple you to death (1 of the last MMA specialists) and I doubt he is able to dictate that type of fight with Woodley.

    Unfortunate GSP chickened out vs Bisping because I would've been all over Bisping there.

    Cyborg imo would have had little problems with Anderson and now should walk right through Evinger easily ...

    The Ultimate Fighter 25 Finale card is getting a last-minute change.


    Steve Bosse is out and in his place Nick Roehrick has signed with the UFC to fight Jared Connonier in a light heavyweight bout on just three days’ notice

    Roehrick (7-0 MMA, 0-0 UFC), 29, brings an undefeated record into the contest, including two fights this year under the Combat Night banner. In January he won by split decision and in April he won by first-round TKO. Four of his seven wins have come by decision.

    All fighters successfully made weight for UFC 213


    Romero needed to disrobe to make the 185-pound cutoff for his interim title bout with Whittaker, who weighed 184.5.

    Gegard Mousasi is the latest addition to Bellator roster.

    Six Fight deal.


    He was main/co-main for 11 of 12 UFC fights.

    UFC is targeting Justin Gaethje vs. Eddie Alvarez later this year, sources say.


    There has also been serious talk of them coaching TUF 26.
