You didn’t think Michael Bisping’s verbal attack against Brock Lesnar was going to be one-and-done, did you?

The Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) middleweight champion who has long opposed performance enhancing drugs (PEDs), appeared on The MMA Hour to once again unleash verbal fury against the former Heavyweight champion of the world for his failed drug tests at UFC 200.

His words via Bloody Elbow:

“Brock Lesnar tested positive for steroids, it’s as simple as that. I have a very strong opinion, so if you’re going to come over here and fight and take steroids, you’re a pussy. Simple as that. You come in here and act tough, but then you’ve got to take steroids? So which is it? Are you are tough guy or are you not a tough guy? And if you’re taking steroids, then you’re not a tough guy, because you’re mentally weak and you’re a coward.”

Bisping had previously bashed Lesnar by calling him a “big son of a bitch” who is expected to look big for the WWE audience, but when it comes to mixed martial arts (MMA), “real men” don’t cheat, says “The Count.”

Lesnar’s legal team is working overtime in order to show that foot an eye creams are responsible for the failed drug tests that came to light after “Beast Incarnate” took out Mark Hunt last July.

Whether or not it’s good enough to prove his innocence to the Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC), remains to be seen.

UFC welterweight title challenger Stephen Thompson goes into each bout with a “blank slate,” not envisioning a particular outcome.

That way, he told MMAjunkie Radio, it’s a pleasant surprise when something like a knockout arrives.

“I never go out looking for the knockout because sometimes when it doesn’t happen, it can mess with you,” Thompson (13-1 MMA, 8-1 UFC) said in advance of his title shot against 170-pound champion Tyron Woodley (16-3 MMA, 6-2 UFC) at UFC 205, which takes place Nov. 12 at Madison Square Garden in New York City. The event’s main card airs on pay-per-view following prelims on FS1 and UFC Fight Pass.

Thompson likes to keep an open mind about what takes place in the octagon. He couldn’t have anticipated going five rounds with onetime title challenger Rory MacDonald in a previous bout, though he’s happy he did.

“To prove to myself and everybody else that I do have the gas tank to do that,” Thompson noted.

The win secured “Wonderboy” a title shot despite initial resistance from Woodley on the matchup.

To many observers, it may have looked like Thompson, the No. 2 fighter in the USA TODAY Sports/MMAjunkie MMA welterweight rankings, was a fast-twitch kind of fighter, someone who was good in the first round and then faded later in the fight. That would favor No. 1 Woodley, a seasoned wrestler with knockout power.

But Thompson said there’s a lot more to him than what you see on tape. Check out the above interview to get his thoughts on the upcoming title fight.

Howard Jacobs, an attorney for former UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones, said the fighter’s recent positive test for banned substances was because of a contaminated product.

Jones’ showdown with Daniel Cormier at UFC 200 was scrapped in July after a doping test detected clomiphene and letrozole in his system.

On The Luke Thomas Show on SiriusXM Radio (h/t Nick Baldwin of the Bloody Elbow), Jacobs said Jones’ camp and the United States Anti-Doping Agency discovered the source of the banned substances.

“It came from a product that Jon took that was not labelled with either of these substances,” he said. “We had it tested; the product was contaminated with both of them.

“Pretty much every time it’s been tested, it’s shown that the product is contaminated with both clomiphene and letrozole.”

Here is the full interview:

This is significant news for Jones as he gets set for his Oct. 31 appeal hearing. Per Baldwin, the maximum punishment Jones faces is a one-year suspension, though he could escape with a warning.

“In a case like this, you can’t argue that you have no fault if you take a supplement or product that’s contaminated,” Jacobs said. “But you can argue that you’re not significantly at fault, which gives you the ability to argue for a reduced sanction.”

Jones is considered by many to be one of the finest-ever MMA competitors, with 22 wins and one defeat—by disqualification—in his 23 professional fights.

The man known as Bones was last in the Octagon at UFC 197 in April, when he outclassed Ovince Saint Preux in a unanimous-decision victory. That bout came after Jones was stripped of his title and suspended following his arrest on a felony charge of leaving the scene of an accident involving death or personal injuries. He defeated bitter rival Cormier in his last fight before that in early January 2015.

Jones then tested positive for cocaine in mid-January 2015 and was slapped with a $25,000 fine by the UFC for violating company standards; he was not banned by the Nevada Athletic Commission, as the test came out of competition.

Who emerges victorious in UFC 207’s clash of former heavyweight champions?

At the year-end pay-per-view event, which takes place Dec. 30 at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Cain Velasquez (14-2 MMA, 12-2 UFC), who’s No. 2 in the USA TODAY Sports/MMAjunkie MMA heavyweight rankings, takes on No. 3-ranked Fabricio Werdum (21-6-1 MMA, 9-3 UFC).

Werdum, then a substantial +450 favorite, submitted and dethroned Velasquez in 2015. However, despite that defeat, Velasquez is a small favorite in the rematch.

Independent odds consultant Joey Oddessa has opened Velasquez as a -175 favorite over +145 underdog Werdum at UFC 207. At those odds, a bettor would need to wager $175 on Velasquez to net $100 in winnings. A winning $100 bet on Velasquez, meanwhile, would result in a $145 profit.

“The Cain Velasquez -175 price gives merit to the excuses for his loss to Werdum in Mexico City,” Oddessa told MMAjunkie. “The altitude, layoff and lack of preparation were all factors taken into account in the pricing of the rematch. A healthy Cain Velasquez should avenge the second loss of his UFC career and line himself up for a title shot against current champ Stipe Miocic.”

Velasquez returned from a yearlong layoff and rebounded from the Werdum loss with a first-round TKO win over Travis Browne at UFC 200. Werdum, meanwhile, rebounded from his title loss to Miocic in May with a September victory over Browne.

“If recent history or statistics are any indication of what will happen in Las Vegas, they would appear to favor Cain Velasquez,” Oddessa said. “In rematches, Cain has avenged the only other loss of his UFC career, against Junior Dos Santos – not just one, but two times, while looking even more impressive in each outing.

“Velasquez entered the second of the three bouts as an underdog, and in the trilogy as about a 2-1 favorite. Dos Santos does own a victory over Fabricio Werdum, but it spans nearly a decade ago at UFC 90 in 2008.”

UFC 207 marks Velasquez’s fifth straight fight as the favorite. That could make a UFC 207 victory all the sweeter for Werdum.

“Werdum is presented an opportunity to silence any critics who said in the aftermath of his loss to Miocic that his win against Cain Velasquez was a fluke,” Oddessa said.

Out of all of the current elite names in mixed martial arts (MMA) today, ONE welterweight champion Ben Askren is most likely the best fighter to never compete under the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) banner. That’s been made possible by bad blood and a “boring” fighting style.

Never seeing Askren test his world-class wrestling against the best 170-pound competitors in the world has been an absolute crime, but the 32-year-old undefeated champion may be closer to the real thing as ever before. Former UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre is sort of a free agent, which may allow Askren to finally get his hands on the world’s greatest.

“I would say, if I’m making the argument, it’s very easy to argue that Georges St-Pierre is the #1 welterweight in the world, still to this day because he never lost going out,” said Askren in a recent interview with Flo Combat. “So when you’re talking about me versus him, that’s a matchup that everyone wants to see, and the fact that he’s been out for three years and he’s returning, the fact that I’ve never been able to face anyone in the top 5, that leaves a lot of intrigue to the matchup. So I think that’s a matchup that sells huge.”

Just to remind us all of how dominant he has been over the past seven years, Askren made his case as to why he should be the one to welcome GSP back to the fight game.

“I’ve never lost,” added Askren. “You can’t say I’m not the best. When you try to say I’m not the best, you don’t have a great argument for it. People try to say I’m not the best, they don’t really have a good argument [for it] besides the fact that I’ve never had the opportunity to fight someone that’s that highly ranked. I mean, Lima was in the top 15 when I fought him, so was Jay Hieron, so was Dan Hornbuckle, now once I beat their ass they moved down a little bit, but now Andrey Koreshkov is a top 10 top 15 guy, and I manhandled him.”

Askren has a point. Even though all of his career wins have come outside of UFC, he has defeated some serious talent. Andrey Koreshkov is the current Bellator MMA welterweight champion and he lost to Askren. Douglas Lima is the former Bellator welterweight champion and he lost to Askren. MMA veteran Jay Hieron had won 10 straight before his meeting with Askren in 2011 and, yes, he also lost to “Funky.”

St-Pierre certainly has the better track record here, but Askren is playing his cards right considering there’s a decent chance the former UFC champ lands somewhere outside of his mother promotion.

Our sport is always evolving, and nowhere is it more apparent than in strike totals. Nowadays, UFC fighters from 115 pounds to 265 pounds have the cardio, creativity and confidence to land 100+ significant strikes in a 25-minute and 15-minute bout alike. It’s a high watermark that more and more are crossing these past few years, but it is never less impressive when they do. However the total is proportioned – by head, body and leg targets or a mix of attacking on the feet and on the ground, landing 100+ significant strikes is an offensive output mark to be revered.Here are all the 100+ signifi … Read the Full Article Here View full post on UFC News

The action was plentiful Friday night (Oct. 21, 2016) as Bellator MMA touched down at the FedEx Forum in Memphis, Tennessee, live on Spike TV for Bellator 162. With a main card featuring the likes of Alexander Shlemenko, Bobby Lashley, Hisaki Kato, Ryan Couture and top-flight finisher Goiti Yamauchi, Bellator 162 did not disappoint.

Full video highlights of the four-fight main card can be seen above, courtesy of Bellator MMA.

In the main event, Shlemenko looked to produce fireworks in his return to the Bellator cage for the first time since February of 2015. While opponent Kendall Grove gave the Russian a run for his money through the first five minutes, Shlemenko began to open up in Round 2. After landing a devastating left hook to Grove’s liver then a right hand to his chin, “Storm” captured the memorable TKO victory in a successful promotional return.

As for the co-main event, Lashley, who has now won eight fights in a row dating back to 2012, overpowered unarmed opponent Josh Appelt with continuous takedowns and ground-and-pound. Appelt seemed to catch Lashley on the feet in the beginning of Round 2, but the Total Nonstop Action (TNA) Wrestling superstar once again took the fight to the ground and sunk in the submission. Even before Lashley locked in his second arm, Appelt was starting to tap.

In addition, the lightening fast main card featured a 61-second submission finish by Yamauchi and a come-from-behind TKO stoppage for Kato.

“I’m not trying to be world champion,” Cody McKenzie tells MMAjunkie Radio. “I’m just trying to make money in the game.”

The UFC vet’s mindset is a little different six years after he debuted to a national audience as an offbeat character with a unique guillotine choke on “The Ultimate Fighter 12.”

McKenzie (16-9) has fought in the UFC, made it into the octagon with store-bought shorts, got released after a 3-4 run, and later denounced the industry leader.

He once donated blood to make weight for a local show. He was disqualified for head-butting an opponent. He retired. In short, his career has been a colorful one, at least compared to many of his colleagues, who’ve cycled in and out of the UFC, never to be seen again.

The retirement didn’t last. McKenzie still fights, but not with the same goal. It’s about good opportunities. It’s about money. Mostly the latter.

“I’m a good fighter, but I’m not world champ,” he said. “Unless you’re the world champ in this sport, it’s pretty hard to make a payday.”

Two years ago, McKenzie suffered a bad knockout loss and shifted his priorities. He doesn’t just take fights to stay busy any more.

“If I feel it’s worth my time, I’ll do it, like a trip to Italy,” he said, describing a gig in May with the upstart Venator promotion that, surprise surprise, ended with a guillotine choke victory. “But I work. Last year, I was probably on the fishing boats seven months out of the year.”

The rest of the time, McKenzie lives in the Seattle area plying another trade: marijuana production. He works at Hang Roots, a warehouse owned by his girlfriend’s cousin that produces the plant in Washington state’s legal marijuana market.

“We’ve got the best,” he said. “Our slogan is, ‘Top shelf.’”

But mostly he trims plants, watching highlight reels on TV and listening to music. He also samples the product from time to time – quality control is important, of course.

The days of fighting as a featherweight are long gone. His girlfriend and a stable job have added 45 pounds to his frame. When he meets UFC vet Joe Riggs (41-7) on the Oct. 28 “Fight Night 2” card in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, he will fight at a 180-pound catchweight.

“I’ve got a girl that feeds me,” he said.

McKenzie tried taking the well-traveled path. But at 28, he seems perfectly content to take another one.

“I’ve always been a laborer,” he said. “I’m not too smart. But now that the marijuana industry is popping off, it’s a nice little way to make a chunk of change.”

Current Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) welterweight king Tyron Woodley will have more eyes on him than ever before when he defends his 170-pound title opposite Stephen Thompson at UFC 205 on Nov. 12 from New York City. Chalk up the heightened attention to headliner Conor McGregor.

In preparation for the biggest fight of his mixed martial arts (MMA) career, Woodley has brought in young phenom Sage Northcutt in an attempt to mirror the unorthodox techniques of “Wonderboy,” which can be seen in the above video. According to the UFC welterweight champion, “Super” is actually a better version of Thompson.

It’s not everyday that you see a mixed martial arts (MMA) megastar verbally tango with insane clowns. It’s like a clash between a real-life superhero and the worst nightmare imaginable. Well, current Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) superstar Conor McGregor may have opened up a can of worms when he had the following to say in an interview with The LAD Bible about the recent clown-stalking epidemic:

I would slap the head off of one (clown). You see some guy jumping out screaming in your face dressed in a clown mask? I’d slap the head off him pull the clown mask off and stick it up his ass. You know what I mean? What the f-k even is that? I don’t what the f-k even is that. Have people been killed or what? I haven’t heard that people have been killed. You’ve heard that maybe there’s stabbing and stuff like that but… I don’t know it’s f-ked up! I don’t know it’s f-ked up. Just don’t come near me in a clown suit. In fact, don’t come near me period. Come near me and I’ll slap the head off you anyway. But if you’re in a clown suit I’ll slap the head off you even more so.

To much surprise, one of these proud clown creeps stuck his neck out and challenged McGregor to come down to his haunted house (shown above). The frightening clown dared “Notorious” to come to Bruff Co. Limerick in Ireland (where the crows fell off the tress with the hunger) and get the “shite” scared out of him, adding the following:

If you come down for five minutes, we’ll scare the life of ya. And 15 minutes with me and you’ll be wanting a nappy because you’ll be shitin’ your pants You’ll be going back to your mommy crying!

If there’s enough money involved, McGregor would have no problem beating this dude’s ass. And if you’re thinking about trick-or-treating around McGregor’s Las Vegas neighborhood in a clown costume on Halloween night, you may want to roll 20 deep.
