Michael Bisping Claims He Was Never Offered the Jacare Fight

After news of Yoel Romero’s knee injury spread across the MMA landscape the UFC was left scrambling to salvage one of the more intriguing matchups of 2015.  They finally landed on an underwhelming rematch with Chris Camozzi.

Dana White claims that Camozzi was the only fighter willing to step up on such short notice, but Jacare’s manager, Gilberto Faria, claims that Michael Bisping was offered the fight and turned it down.  This did not sit well with “The Count,” and he was quick to fire back at the Brazilian with the following, compliments of MMA Mania:

            “Jacare’s manager has said I turned down a fight with Jacare. And now it is the headline on all the MMA websites. ‘Bisping was offered Jacare fight but turned it down’ that is complete bullshit. The fight was never offered, the UFC didn’t talk to me at all. I have signed a contract to fight in Montreal on the 25th but if the UFC asked me, I would have done it. Just like I have every time the UFC asked me to step up. Jacare is a great fighter, but his manager doesn’t need to tell lies to make him sound like a bad ass. Have a word with him, he’s full of shit. Oh, and by the way. When we both get these fights out the way, let’s do it!”

Love him or hate him, Michael Bisping has never been one to shy away from tough opponents.  So it would be completely logical that he is telling the truth here.  Taking Bisping out of his fight at UFC 186 would not make good business sense for the UFC either.  That card has already suffered numerous setbacks and will surely be one of the worst selling pay-per views of the year.  This weekend’s Fox card has more than enough juice to still do great numbers even with the new co-main event matchup.

With the winner of the Rockhold-Machida fight most likely getting the next crack for the title, a fight between Jacare and Bisping could be a big title eliminator for later this year.

Ladies Fight Night 7: “Double Trouble” Preview

Published

on

Polish women’s federation Ladies Fight Night is going to celebrate their second birthday this year on the 15th to 17th of December. Two days, two events with a lot of great bouts.

LFN in Poland is being titled the new Invicta FC. The Polish owners created this federation to give European women a chance to fight on a big platform.

Hosting their first ever event in December 2015, LFN will hold two great cards next week, that will feature women who have fought under many prestigious promotions, such as the UFC, Invicta, Bellator, Glory, and Kunlun.

Two days of fantastic fights, intensified by a double dose of sports impressions. The name is not accidental, LFN 7 / LFN 8 combines two events, during which the best Polish fighters will be shown, as well as the best fighters from Europe (including France, Sweden, Italy, the Czech Republic and Romania)

The stakes are high, and we are electrified by the clashes between warriors such as Żaneta Cieśla vs Silvia La Notte and Patricia Axling vs. Cindy Silvestri. Mainly due to their vastness of their experience in the cage.

In the fight of the evening, the talented Romanian Cristina Stanciu will face Magdaléna Šormovádo. Stanciu fought twice in the UFC, but she was unfortunately cut from the promotion after suffering consecutive losses to Cortney Casey and Maryna Moroz.

Judyta Rymarzak vs Marta Waliczek is an amazing fight between two experienced kickboxers. Both making their pro MMA debuts on the night, we will witness a one-of-a-kind duel between two kickboxing perfectionists, as they look to transcend their skills into the MMA world.
