Tyrone Spong wants in at UFC Dublin



Could the UFC light heavyweight division be about to receive a major shot in the arm? Legendary Dutch kickboxing phenomenon Tyrone Spong has made no secret in the past of his desire to fight in the UFC, and he wants his debut to be on October 24th when the UFC rolls into Dublin, Ireland.

In a recent interview with, Spong, wearing a UFC t-shirt, was asked about the possibility of fighting with the UFC, specifically about the upcoming event in Dublin, and he replied by saying “I really want to fight in Dublin,” with a large grin on his face “I love Ireland, the fans love me over there. I guess they just like real fighters, so I would love to fight there.” He did go on to say that a potential stumbling block is that the UFC is an “exclusive promotion” which would mean that Spong would not be able to pursue fights in kickboxing or boxing while under contract with the organisation.

In the same interview, Spong mentioned his “good relationship” with UFC president Dana White and said he had not had serious discussions about fighting for the UFC, but added that he “talked with him again today and you never know.”

It’s not the first time the hard hitting light heavyweight has requested to fight in Dublin. In fact, he attended the last UFC even in Dublin on July 19th 2014, where Dana White revealed at the post-fight press conference that “Everyone wants to fight in Ireland. I’ve got Tyrone Spong back there telling me ‘sign me for one fight.’” While many fighters made similar requests following that night, it was that of Spong which most excited the fans.

Spong last competed in MMA in 2013 for World Series of Fighting, where he amassed a 2 – 0 record with 1 knockout, but he was recently seen on MMA fans screens when acting as a coach for the Blackzilians on The Ultimate Fighter; during which time he endeared himself to viewers. He has competed in 2 boxing matches this year, however, winning both by way of knockout inside 2 minutes. It is in kickboxing where he made his name though, with a highly impressive 74 wins and only 7 loses in his career. Spong would certainly be an exciting addition to the UFC roster, even if it was just for one fight. With the main event of UFC Dublin between Joseph Duffy and Dustin Poirier having been announced today, adding the name of Tyrone Spong to that card would no doubt help to make UFC Dublin one of the most eagerly anticipated cards remaining in the year.

Bellator 185- How to Watch, Times and Fight Card



Bellator is once again heading to Mohegan Sun in Uncasville Connecticut, and this time they are bringing with them one of the most anticipated former UFC fighter turned Bellator stars’ debut. Gegard Mousasi will be making his first appearance in the Bellator cage against a former Bellator champion in Alexander Shlemenko. Although this event has lost some of its star power over the last several weeks, it is still stacked and you can bet that the main event will bring some fireworks.

Earlier in the month, it was announced that King Mo had suffered an injury that had forced him out of his co-main event fight with former middleweight champion Liam McGeary. Bellator worked quickly to secure a replacement opponent for McGeary in Bubba McDaniels. Unfortunately for McDaniels and the fans alike, McGeary had later suffered an injury of his own and the fight was removed from the card.

This left a spot open in the co-main event slot, which would be filled by a welterweight matchup between Brennan Ward and David Rickels. Just four days out from the fight, Bellator announced that Ward had also become injured and the fight has been removed from the card as well. The main card has been shuffled around and the welterweight bout between Neiman Gracie and Zak Bucia will now serve as the co-main event.
