UFC 194 Weigh in Results – Incredible staredown



The UFC 194 official fight weigh-ins took place at the MGM Grand Garden Arena today in Las Vegas. Although most in attendance were there to see potential fireworks between the two taking part in the main event attraction, Jose Aldo Junior and Conor McGregor, twenty four fighters took to the scales on Friday evening.

The undercard begins with three fights on the UFC’s fight pass streaming service at 6:30 ET, followed closely by the four fight undercard which gets underway at 8PM ET.
The main card begins at 10PM ET and is headlined by arguably the biggest fight in UFC history as defending featherweight champion Jose Aldo takes on interim featherweight champ “The Notorious” Conor McGregor.

In the co main event defending champ Chris Weidman returns to the Octagon to defend his middleweight strap taking on his stiffest challenge to date in streaking number 1 contender Luke Rockhold.

An intense stare down between champion and challenger preceded the interviews with both. Luke Rockhold had this to say “Chris has been a great champion but I am bringing the game to a new level and I am going to give these Irish fans something to cheer for”

Weidman’s response was only to state his intentions for tomorrow night “He’s never faced anybody like me before. It’s going to be a finish- that’s all I know. A finish.”

In the main event both men looked somewhat gaunt in what looked like a tough weight cut. When Rogan visited with the interim champion McGregor pulled no punches with his assessment of Aldo “You know I’m sick of talking about Jose I know the soft parts of his face it won’t be able to take my shots.” He then went on to tell the faithful Irish fans that he would bring home the gold for his country once again.

Jose Aldo who had emulated McGregor’s fighting stance in the fiery stare down responded with his own words “I don’t care what he has to say. I’m coming here tomorrow night to be the champion.”

The weigh-ins were completed with all twenty four fighters making weight. The full re-cap of the results are below.

• (C) Jose Aldo (145) vs (IC) Conor McGregor (145)

Ovince Saint Preux Steps in to Face Corey Anderson at UFC 217



UFC 217 just got even more interesting. Earlier this week, Patrick Cummins pulled out of his light heavyweight matchup with Corey Anderson due to a Staph infection. Corey “Overtime” Anderson was not happy with his opponents decision, even calling out his opponent on Instagram asking how Cummins could, “call it quits so far from fight night”.

The UFC left Anderson on the card, and he found an opponent through the magic of Twitter. Ovince Saint Preux tweeted out directly to Anderson stating:

It didn’t take long for Anderson to respond agreeing to the fight, tagging Mick Maynard and Dana White in his response.

Only a few short hours later, the fight announcement came from the official UFC twitter account.


This top 10 Light Heavyweight matchup should add to an already amazing card coming in November at Madison Square Garden. Saint Preux is coming off of back to back wins both due to the very rare von flue choke, he finds himself ranked #7th in the latest edition of the 205-pound rankings. Corey “Overtime” Anderson is 4-2 in his last 6 fights, but is coming off a brutal first round knockout loss to Jimi Manuwa in March.

With such a exciting fight added to this card, what do you see happening November 4th?  Will Corey Anderson bounce back and look to jump into the top 5 of the rankings, or will Ovince Saint Preux go for a third straight von flue choke? Let us know.

Bellator 185 Fight to Watch: Heather Hardy vs. Kristina Williams



Heather Hardy will compete in MMA for the second time at Bellator 185 on Friday night, as she faces Kristina Williams in a strawweight contest. The fight takes place on the main card at the Mohican Sun Arena in Connecticut.

Potentially, what Bellator have in Heather ‘The Heat’ Hardy is a major draw that they can build their 125 pound division around. While relatively new to the organisation she is fast becoming one of the more popular names on the roster. Her career is in the early stages, but many have already started to draw comparisons with former boxer turned MMA star, Holly Holm. Holm’s UFC success partly inspired the native New Yorker to make the switch from boxing.

Hardy is already an established world champion in the land of the ‘sweet science’, holding a 21 fight undefeated professional record. She made her MMA debut in June this year with a victory over Alice Yauger, at Bellator 180. At 35, Hardy is a late starter in the sport, but proved at Madison Square Garden against the credible Yauger that she has a bright future.

Hardy’s first outing in the cage was disciplined and composed. Despite a slow start in round one, Hardy grew in confidence as the fight progressed and her cardio never faltered. She mixed in plenty of kicks that complimented her boxing and looked at ease in the clinch, even defending a couple of takedown attempts in the process.

Despite looking on course for a decision win, Hardy forced the TKO stoppage with just thirteen seconds remaining in round three. Even a large cut that required seven stitches from an accidental head clash could not deny her victory.

Hardy was fighting an experienced professional, competing for the tenth time in MMA, which makes the win over Yauger more impressive. However, her upcoming opponent Kristina Williams will be making her professional debut. There is little known about Williams except that she is 3-0 at amateur level.

One of those wins came by way of submission so there may well be a threat to Hardy if the fight goes to the ground. More importantly for Williams is how she copes on the big stage against a popular opponent, who is more familiar competing in high pressure combat situations. If Williams can produce an upset it will be a huge boost in her young career.

But in all honesty, this fight is about Hardy. It’s about getting the win and gaining valuable experience. The boxing career is on hold while MMA takes centre stage. Beating Williams will mean she likely continues fighting inside a cage rather than a boxing ring.
