*LIVE UPDATES* UFC 205 Results

Matthew Wells



UFC 205 staredowns

Finally, we’re here.

Live from the world-famous Madison Square Garden in New York City, New York is UFC 205.

Saturday night marks the UFC’s first event in the Empire State since the sport of mixed martial arts became legal earlier this year. After years of hard-fought political and legal battles in New York, the dust has settled and the promotion has completely stacked the deck to bring an incredible line up of fights to New York City for this landmark event.

Three title fights, seven current or former UFC champions, and a host of other fan-favorites have set the stage to make this event an all-time record breaker.

One man attempting to permanently etch his name in the record books is “The Notorious” Conor McGregor, as he attempts to become the UFC’s first multi-division champion. Currently holding the UFC Featherweight Championship, the Irishman will look to add the UFC Lightweight Championship to his trophy case as well, a feat that has never been accomplished in the UFC. Standing in his way of history is one of the toughest fighters in the game, a man who has held titles under multiple promotions, Eddie Alvarez. The Philadelphia native’s crowning UFC moment was during International Fight Week earlier this year when he knocked out Rafael dos Anjos in the first round. Tension has been high throughout fight week, and the pair both believe they will get their hand raised on Saturday evening.

The co-main event is a title fight in the welterweight division between Stephen “Wonderboy” Thompson and the newly crowned champ, Tyron “The Chosen One” Woodley. In the ultimate clash of styles, will lighting-fast speed and vicious power prevail over style and precision? Woodley brings an impressive powerful striking style along with strong wrestling to the cage whereas Thompson with his point-karate style, brings accuracy and well-timed, fight-ending strikes from all angles. Woodley will look to defend his title for the first time since knocking out Robbie Lawler to earn the belt, while Stephen Thompson will look to stretch his winning streak to eight, in addition to becoming a champion in the process.

In a battle of undefeated strawweights, the country of Poland will be on the edge of their seats as Karolina Kowalkiewicz looks to end the reign of destruction from the champ Joanna Jedrzejczyk. Both ladies will put their undefeated records on the line, while UFC gold hangs in the balance. These two bitter rivals who have crossed each other’s paths in the past and have now brought their talents to Madison Square Garden to settle the score on the biggest stage of 2016.

Follow along with the official results of the fights below, which will be updated at the conclusion of each bout. For up to the moment action, follow on Twitter (@MMALatestnws)as we keep you updated on the event as it unfolds.

Bellator 194, Nelson vs. Mitrione Pre-Fight Notes



Bellator takes over the Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Connecticut later tonight. The promotion hosts, Bellator 194: Nelson vs. Mitrione from the venue, beginning at 6:30 pm (ET). Bellator 194 marks the 17th trip to the Mohegan Sun Casino. Their last trip, took place a little more than a few months ago in October of 2017, Bellator 185. The first trip to the Connecticut casino, occurred all the way back in April of 2009, and the second ever event held by the promotion, Bellator 2.

Twenty four fighters will make the walk later tonight, giving fans 12 bouts to watch from prelims to main event. Of the 24 athletes set to compete, five make their professional debuts. Peter Nascimento, Mike Kimbel, Pat Casey, Ross Richardson, and Ronnie Leon all fight for the first time, professionally. As amateurs, the group holds a combined record of 18-12. Only Ross Richardson maintained an undefeated amateur record (3-0).

In recent cards past, only some full broadcasts brought forward newly professional fighters. Events such as Bellator 191, 190, and 187, only broadcast short main card. While events like 193, 192, 189, 188, and 186 broadcast full fight cards. Since November of 2017, 15 fighters made their pro debuts with the Bellator promotion. Including Khonry Gracie in his unanimous decision loss to Devon Brock (Bellator 192), and Ty-wan Claxton, in his amazing KO finish of Johnny Bonilla-Bowman in the first round of Bellator 186. Claxton makes his second pro appearance tonight at Bellator 194 against Jose Antonio Perez, whom also fights for the second time professionally.

Upon completion of Bellator 194’s broadcast, 50% of the promotions first round matches in their Heavyweight Grand Prix will be decided. It is nearly impossible to choose, one match-up more interesting than the others. Yet, the Mitrione vs. Nelson match up is not only puzzling to fans and media alike. One half of the main event, at least, was once annoyed by the prospect of fighting his former TUF cast mate. Mitrione spoke to MMAJunkie about his reaction to the match-up, “Well, I asked them, how does that make sense? Roy is arguably the #2 guy in the division… Explain that to me, is there any seeding?…” He continued, “But the more I thought about, the less I really cared. Either I beat Roy when I have the strap, or I beat Roy to get the strap. What the hell difference does it make?”

In one bit of event news, fan favorite flyweight, Heather Hardy missed weight, in what turned out to be an odd set of circumstances. According to Hardy, she believed she made weight, without stripping down and using the towel. It was her understanding that the Mohegan Tribe Department of Athletic Regulation gave her a weight allowance for the bikini top and bottom she wore while on the scale. Hardy weighed in at 126.25 lbs. with the aforementioned bikini top and bottom.

This understanding was not shared by president of Mohegan Tribe Department of Athletic Regulation, Mike Mazzulli. The president made the decision to record Hardy’s weight without allowing her to disrobe, or take use the extra two hours allotted to make weight. It was his understanding upon examining and attempting to communicate with Hardy whilst she stood on the scale that brought him to the decision. After renegotiation of the bout agreement, Hardy was fined 20% of her purse which goes to her opponent Ana Julaton.
