“Cuban Hitman” Jorge Masvidal Star of the Night

Jorge Masvidal star of the night is reborn beating Darren Till and Leon Edwards. The upset of the year so far, Whoever bet Masvidal to win made lots of money!

  • Jorge Masvidal def. Darren Till via knockout (punches) – Round 2, 3:05

Masvidal looking better than ever. First round was getting punched a lot, Losing the first round. Till knocked down Masvidal in the first round but Masvidal is tough as nails with a strong chin at 34 years old. Second round Masvidal was reborn in the second round, Fighting like he was a Welterweight champion.

Masvidal won his next fight backstage against Leon Edwards, Nobody disrespects Jorge Masvidal!

Backstage fight

Masvidal later spoke with ESPN’s Brett Okamoto to explain his side of the story. According to him, Edwards had already been trying to start things up on social media, until it all spilled over into his interview.
“So I’m doing my interview, and this hooligan comes by and he’s saying some stuff. ‘July, you’ll get your ass kicked!’ or ‘July!’ and I go, ‘Maybe’, because maybe, I want to kick your ass in April,” he explained. “Maybe I don’t want to wait until July. Maybe I don’t even want to fight you in a prized ring because you’re not worth the training camp, I’ll just fight you here. Because you’re a scrub.
“As I’m walking up to him, I got my hands behind my back to signal I’m not coming here for problems. But he put his hands up, it’s on video, and he walks towards me. Well, where I’m from, if you do that, you’re gonna punch me in the face. And that’s not gonna happen, Leon.”

Masvidal was top of the MMA headlines for Saturday night and it’s well deserved. Masvidal was the main event Saturday and possibly be the main event again fighting Leon Edwards. Masvidal vs Edwards can be the main event for a ESPN plus card or be the prelim main event for a PPV. UFC definitely can promote this fight, Get a lot of views. Makes sense to have Masvidal vs Edwards!

UFC should Sign Roberto Soldic and Mateusz Gamrot!!!

KSW is one of the best promotions in the world. KSW is the top Polish promotion and has two world class fighters. Two of the best fighters KSW has is Roberto Soldic, Soldic is the KSW welterweight champion.

  • #1 Polish Middleweight, #1 UK/Ireland Middleweight
  • 14-3 record,24 years old
  • MMA list Soldic as the TOP European Prospect to watch

Mateusz Gamrot is the second fighter. Gamrot is the featherweight and lightweight champion. Gamrot is selling out 20,000 to 30,000 seated arenas.

  • #1 Polish featherweight and lightweight
  • #1 Eastern European featherweight
  • Top 60 featherweights in the world

“With more than 56,600 tickets sold for the highly-anticipated stadium show, KSW 39 has officially beaten the UFC’s attendance record set in 2015.” Bloody Elbow

Stipe Miocic, Whose he fighting?

Stipe got knocked out by Daniel Cormier under a minute. That was the last time we seen Stipe fight. Will he ever step foot inside the octagon again? Thought Cormier would give Miocic a rematch but it never happened because it wasn’t a money fight.

Fight matchups

  • Miocic vs Ngannou
  • Miocic vs Lewis
  • Miocic vs Blaydes

Joe Rogan Stipe Miocic click the link!!

He deserves a rematch if I don’t get to fight Brock. I’ve always stood by that. But you can’t just go, ‘Well, you owe it to me.’ I don’t want to sit here and talk bad about Stipe because I like Stipe. I think he’s a good guy. He’s a fantastic father. He’s a pillar of the community. He’s a great fighter. I think he’s great. But you can’t sit there and say, ‘He owes me.’” MMA Daniel Cormier

Miocic is going to have to wait for Cormier to retire. Miocic returns and has his title run, Becomes the UFC champion by beating Lewis, Ngannou or the new youth!!

“In a perfect world, which we know this isn’t a perfect world, I think you see Brock, I think you see Stipe and hopefully Jon Jones,” White said. “Those are his three and he’ll go out with a bang man, then he’ll probably retire.”Dana White MMA Junkie

Bellator Welterweight Grand Prix, Whose the champ???

  • Douglas Lima vs Michael “Venom” Page Lima wins by unanimous decision

Douglas Lima one of the best welterweights in the world. He’s an all-around fighter beating Lorenz Larkin, Paul Daley and Andrey Koreshkov. Michael Page is just a world class stand up striker. Lima is going to take his time and not strike with him.

Douglas Lima is a killer,” Coker said in a promotional video leading up to Saturday’s Bellator NYC pay-per-view affair at Madison Square Garden in New York. “I’ll say here, he is the best welterweight in the world right now.” MMA JUNKIE

  • Rory MacDonald vs Jon Fitch, Rory 2nd round or 3rd KO!!

Rory might be the best welterweight in the world. Rory is the 170 champion, He had one of the greatest fights against Robbie Lawler, Beat Woodley, Beat Demian Maia. Jon Fitch is a legend, Been fighting since the early 2000’s and Fitch had a title fight with GSP.

“I love that Rory MacDonald’s over there. He’s the champ. If he’s not the best welterweight in the world, it’s him and Tyron (Woodley). He’s most certainly one of the best. (Gegard) Mousasi is one go the best 185ers in the world, if not the best. They have legit claim to world-class fighters now in at least two weight classes.” Lowkick MMA

  • Rory MacDonald vs Neiman Gracie, Rory wins in the 3rd round.
  • Neiman is going to give Rory a really tough fight. Rory needs to keep Gracie standing up because Neiman is a world class submission specialist. Gracie don’t get me wrong is a world class fighter , Coming into his own when he beat Ed Ruth. Upset win.
    • Final fight Rory Vs Lima. Rory wins in SPLIT DECISION.

    The title fight will be one of the best title fights in 2019. Putting Bellator on the map with millions of views.

  • What Now for the UFC Featherweight Division Title?

    Max Holloway moving up to the lightweight division to fight Dustin Poirier. Max Holloway will stay in the lightweight division. What’s the future of the division look like now ?

    Jose Aldo is reborn, Two Fight win streak. Aldo probably has one more title run in him.

    Aldo revealed on Wednesday afternoon that he intends to fight the last three bouts on his current contract with the UFC in 2019 and is hopeful all three fights are staged in Brazil before hanging up his gloves for good (via MMA Fighting): “

    Aldo is fighting Alexander Volkanovski, Volkanovski is on a 16 fight win streak! He just beat Chad Mendes.

    “While Aldo initially revealed that he hadn’t heard of the Australian fighter, which didn’t seem to bother Volkanovski all that much, Aldo’s head coach, Andre Pederneiras, is now singing a different tune. “We want him to fight Alexander Volkanovski, the guy who knocked out Chad Mendes, the guy who is the best ranked,” Pederneiras told Confraria da Porrada . “In fact, it is the following: we have a dream to dispute the title, which is difficult. So we have the dream of our last fight to get there.” MMA Mania and Sb Nation

    Brian Ortega is a future featherweight champion either this year or in 2020. Ortega had a really tough fight with Max Holloway but that’s a learning experience, Ortega is extremely talented and a all around fighter.

    Ortega hasn’t fought since that fight and I believe he will face rising star Zabit Magomedsharipov.

    “He’s not a top 10 guy, he’s a top five guy,” Henry told FOX Sports. “He could be champ today. I’ve seen a natural in baseball, football, boxing, but never MMA. Just too many disciplines. He’s the first natural MMA fighter I’ve ever seen. He can do it all.” Fox Sports

    Zabit is a human highlight video and it will be a interesting fight to watch. Zabit is an all around fighters and just beat world class fighter Jeremy Stephens!!

    Last win for Ortega was Frankie Edgar who he knocked out in the first round!!!Edgar the legend hasn’t fought since beating Cub Swanson in April of 2018. Edgar was supposed to fight Chan Sung Jung in November but Edgar torn his biceps. Edgar hopefully this year gets a title shot, Maybe fights Aldo if he beats Volkanovski.

    Fantasy MMA Matchups

    Kyoji Horiguchi the Rizin bantamweight champion fought Darrion Caldwell, The Bellator bantamweight champion in Japan. It was very interesting to see a dream fight like that. Maybe there’s other dream fights to come?

    ONE FC Killing It!!

    One FC, Taking over Asia just like Pride did. One FC rapidly growing in the last couple years, Having there own app where you can watch fights for free. One FC definitely one of the best promotions and probably can be second best promotion in the world. One FC beating Bellator to be #2.

    One FC is killing it with signing Eddie Alvarez, Demetrious Johnson, Sage Northcutt and Vitor Belfort. One FC offering a lot of money to these fighters and make them partners. One FC can attract a lot of free agents that way.

    “Look without getting into details, the package in general is going to be an eight-figure deal. Eight figure fight deal. A guaranteed eight-figure fight deal in total. They made me true partner, which I am happy about, and they fully committed to me and we’re fully committing back,” explained Eddie Alvarez

    Demetrious Johnson One Esports Brand Ambassador (Link Below)

    One FC has a three year deal with TNT. One FC signing a TV deal gives them brand exposure in the West, Attracting new fans.

    Overall ONE FC future looks bright, These next 5 years are going to be fascinating. There making a lot of noise by signing world class talent and signing a TV deal with TNT.

    Exciting Time for MMA Promotions

    UFC hands down is the best MMA promotion in the world. The UFC has competition however with Bellator, One Fc and the Professional Fighters League. It’s a new era for MMA and it’s amazing for fans and fighters. Fans have a lot more options now.

    Before when UFC bought Pride, Strikeforce, WEC and WFA there was no competition left. UFC buying the fighters contracts, Having the best roster in the world. Now the promotions I’ve listed all have talented rosters, Not as deep like UFC but still talented.

    Promos top fighters

    • Bellator- Rory McDonald, Michael Chandler, Ryan Bader, Gegard Mousasi, Douglas Lima, Darrion Caldwell
    • One FC- Bibiano Fernandes, Aung La Sang, Brandon Vera, Eduard Folayang, Martin Nguyen, Kevin Belingon
    • PFL- Lance Palmer, Jake Shields, Andre Harrison, Ray Cooper III, Vinny Magalhães and Phillipe Lins

    Now there’s completion with talented rosters. Now as well get to watch these promotions on television or digitally. ESPN has a five year deal with the UFC and has a Two year deal with the PFL. ONE FC has a three year deal with TNT and Bleacher Report. Bellator has Paramount Network and has a 5 year, 100 million dollar deal with DAZN. All of these new deals is just amazing for MMA.

    Darren Till Potential Star

    Darren Till one of the Top welterweight fighters right now. Darren Till is 26 years old, He’s a young lad who didn’t even though his potential, Not only that but his star potential as well.

    Sweet Caroline Darren Till!!! Click !!!

    Crowd in Liverpool roaring when Till was fighting, Stephen Wonderboy Thompson. Crowd singing “Sweet Caroline.” I remember watching this fight and was amazed. Michael Bisping passed the torch to Till and be the King of England!!!!!

    Joe Rogan on Darren Till

    “Total class act move by @darrentill2 I love the guy for his fighting skills and love him even more for what he said here. BRAVO!!”

    “It just hurts because I got there, I was nearly there to do what I set out to do, get that belt and be the greatest,” Till told reporters during his post-fight media scrum (transcript via MMA Fighting). “I am still gonna be the greatest, I know that. I just spoke to Woodley backstage and he’s lost. Jon Jones has lost. Georges St-Pierre has lost.”


    Wish Rico Verhoeven took MMA seriously!!

    Rico Verhoeven” King of Kickboxing” is the best Heavyweight Kickboxer we have today. Defended the Glory Heavyweight title…8 Times.

    From the picture you, Rico’s a physical specimen. A specimen who dominates his opponents. Rico can’t do much more in the kickboxing world. Rico should switch to being a MMA fighter. Rico transferring to MMA, Rico will probably be the best standup boxer. Rico going to a world class MMA gym, Rico can definitely work on his gripping defense and ground game. If Rico is decent in those aspects of fighting the UFC or Bellator Heavyweight division is in trouble.

    Ben Askren trash talk YouTube

    Finally the arrival of Ben Askren, I can’t wait for Askren to fight Robbie Lawler. All because of Joe Rogan, Askren is in the UFC. Askren without a doubt, Askren is one of the best wrestlers in the UFC and will dominate his opponents. The welterweight division is in trouble because of Askren. I believe Ben will be a star soon, Ben has the marketing checklist to make him a star. Another star in the making is Zabit Magomedsharipov who will be a future UFC featherweight champion. Zabit is facing Jeremy Stephens. A test for Zabit which will be a fascinating to watch. Lastly Johnny Walked a light heavyweight future star whose fighting Misha Cirkunov. Walker gives some new blood to the light heavyweight division.

    Zabit Magomedsharipov Joe Rogan

    Zabit fight

    Johnny walker knockout

    I’m so excited for UFC 235, Counting down the days till it arrives. A lot of fights to watch and the debut of Ben Askren. Lastly if you watch UFC 235 don’t illegally stream it, Pay 65 dollars because your basically stealing money from Jon Jones, Anthony Smith, Woodley and Usman… But that’s for another blog.

    GSP, The Greatest MMA fighter retires

    It was truly an honor to watch GSP fight. Watching a true artist perform at the highest level. If you want to create the perfect MMA fighter, You’ll create GSP. GSP is an all- around fighter where other fighters are great at one style. The title of the blog is “GSP, The Greatest MMA fighter Retires.” George St Pierre is the greatest MMA fighter of all time, He beat the best such as BJ Penn, Matt Hughes and Nick Diaz. He never dodged any fighters or took any steroids. Ariel Helwani the top MMA journalist states “George St Pierre is the greatest of all time.”

    GSP is a two division weight champion, He can back after a four year layoff and won the Middleweight title by beating Michael Bisping. I ordered the PPV for the GSP return and was amazed by how incredible GSP looked. That showed GSP is the greatest. I wish that wasn’t the final fight of his career, I wish he fought Khabib in his next fight but it will never happen. Overall even without the Khabib fight, His record and who he fought speaks for itself. GSP is the perfect fighter and the fighter to represent the sport. Once again it was truly an honor to watch GSP’s career.

    MMA Dream Matchups

    Khabib Nurmagomedov vs Tony Ferguson is a fight fans want to see. Hopefully the 5th time we see this happen because both men are at the top of there game. Tony Ferguson is an all around fighter with a 11 fight win streak, Tony Ferguson will give Khabib the most trouble. I’d love to see this fight happen and see if Khabib actually has competition. Khabib is just a mauler, 27-0 record. Brendan Schaub is a regular guest and he knows people at AKA which is one of the best MMA gyms in the world, Khabib wrestled Ed Ruth a Penn State All American wrestler and Khabib destroyed Ed Ruth which is crazy!! Khabib is one of my favorite fighters to watch. I hope this fight happens it will be a ppv success for the UFC.

    George ST. Pierre vs Khabib

    GSP one of the greatest fighters of all time, All around fighter. He is the perfect example of what a fighter should be, Doesn’t trash talk just goes inside the octagon and beats every opponent he faces. There’s nothing bad about this man. GSP is getting up there in age and only has a fight or two left in him. GSP wants to fight the best right now and make the most money ever in his MMA career. The man he should fight is Khabib because Khabib needs a challenge, That would be a interesting matchup for him. Khabib is a huge star, Dana can definitely promote the hell out of this fight! Please Dana make this fight happen.

    Cain Velasquez vs Stipe Miocic

    Cain Velasquez has returned to relinquish his throne as the best Heavyweight of all time. Cain is a Mexican Silverback lol but it’s true he’s very talented fighter and a two time Heavyweight Champion. He beat Junior Dos Santos twice and Beat Antonio Silva twice. Stipe Miocic took over the Heavyweight reign being a three time defending Heavyweight champion. Stipe and Cain Velasquez would be a fight for the ages two gladiators stepping in the cage

    LAnce Palmer ufc in 2020

    Lance Palmer, Professional Fighters League 2019 Featherweight Champion, World Series of Fighting Featherweight Champion is the #1 Fighter on the PFL roster. Palmer age 32, 21-3 record with wins over world class fighters such as Andre Harrison, Max Coga, and Steven Siler time for Palmer to sign with the UFC.

    Palmer today will fight Alex Gilpin for the PFL 2019 Featherweight Title and the 1 million dollar prize. After winning the title, Palmer, His family, Coaches and manager should decide if they want to leave the PFL and sign with the UFC.

    Talent between the UFC and PFL is not even close but Palmer definitely can compete in the Featherweight division, Similar to Chad Mendes style of fighter. Palmer can beat top 15 Featherweights and depending on the matchup can win the UFC Featherweight Title. Love to see Palmer sign with the UFC.

    What’s Next for Patrick Mix after rizin 20

    Patrick Mix Bellator Bantamweight prospect defeated Yuki Motoya in Rizin 20. Patrick Mix 3-0 Bellator record is a rising Bantamweight Bellator Fighter with the potential being a Bellator Bantamweight Champion. Before becoming a champion needs some fights to get him the title shot he’s been wishing, What’s next for Patrick Mix?

    Patrick Mix believes he should be in the top 1 or top 2 in the Bellator Bantamweight Rankings. Represented Bellator by beating Rizin Bantamweight fighter Yuki Motoya.

    Patrick Mix vs James Gallagher

    Patrick Mix called out James Gallagher after his Bellator Debut at Bellator 222. Defeating a world class Bantamweight Ricky Bandejas. Both fighters are rising stars for Bellator, Perfect fight for both of them. Headline a Bellator Event in 2020.

    Patrick Mix vs Sergio Pettis

    Sergio Pettis signed with Bellator in a multi fight contract, Pettis will be fighting Alfred Kashakyan at Bellator 238. After fighting Kashakyan, Fight between Patrick Mix and Sergio Pettis would be interesting to watch. Pettis a top ten UFC Flyweight.

    Patrick Mix vs Manel Kape

    Manel Kape is the Rizin Bantamweight Champion, Winning the title at Rizin 20. Kape is a talented Bantamweight fighter. Rizin and Bellator I assume will continue to cross promote, Fight between Mix and Kape would be interesting to watch. Fighting for the Rizin Bantamweight Title.

    Patrick Mix vs Kyoji Horiguchi

    Kyoji Horiguchi is one of the best Bantamweight fighters in the world, Impressive wins over Darrion Caldwell, Ben Nguyen, and Manel Kape. Love to see how talented Mix is against one of the best Bantamweight’s on the planet!!

    Roberto Soldic Euro Prospect UFC, Bellator, PFL or One Championship 2020

    Roberto “Robocop” Soldic might be one of the best Welterweights to not fight in the UFC or Bellator. Soldic fights for KSW, Top European promotion. He’s the KSW Welterweight champion at 24 years old. Defending the belt three times, Time to shop around the free agent market.

    Used to be sign with the UFC and nobody else because of the lack of options but as of late there’s a Bellator ran by Scott Coker, Professional Fighters League and One Championship which I believe is the 2nd best promotion. Soldic can sign with any of the 4 promotions and become a Welterweight Champion and European Star.

    “I believe in a very short time I could be in the top 10 [of the UFC]. I believe that because I’ve had really good spars with top-level guys. They had some trouble with me and they respected me afterwards. I’m sure I could compete there.”

    Soldic most impressive win of his career is a win over Driscus Du Plessis. A world class MMA fighter, Eventually will fight for the UFC, Bellator, or One Championship.

    “For me, KSW is good; I really like KSW,” Soldic said. “I think I’ll stay here for a long time, so I don’t really think about the UFC, I just think about KSW. They take care of me and they give me support. I’m champion here, I enjoy it here and we’ll see what the future brings.”

    Soldic enjoys fighting for KSW, Doesn’t see himself leaving and just be a star for KSW but when offers start coming and the oppurtunity to win bigger welterweight title, Believe he’ll the take offer from the UFC, Bellator, One Championship or PFL.
