RDA имаше скъсан MCL 3 седмици преди двубоя с Pettis, който му попречи да тренира какъвто и да е wrestling, но излезе и се би. Сега нещата видимо са други и RDA е в позицията да откаже, но това не говори добре за него в тази ситуация.

 

McGregor, в UFC, никога не отпадал от мач и никога не го е отменял/отлагал. В седемте си двубоя, четири от тях са били със смяна на опонент, но McGregor винаги е излизал да се бие на точната дата, включително и два пъти, когато опонентът му се сменя седмица преди въпросния двубой. McGregor е с хронични проблеми в колената, датирайки от контузията му по време на двубоя с Max Holloway, като преди Mendes отново ги е контузил, след BJJ сесия с Rory McDonald. Въпреки това, Conor винаги е излизал да се бие, а при него една загуба не значи само загуба на титла, а на десетки милиони.

Ако Диаз бие, това сигурно ще бъде най-големият upset в историята на UFC, ever.Шансовете са минимални, но това би било ЕПИЧНО, ако се случи.Dream match отвсякъде, само Диаз да излезе във форма и да не разочарова.

[b]Thank you EDGE! [/b]

Е, Дон Аньос не е ли със счупено стъпало в момента? Той няма как да излезе да се бие, просто не зависи от него?

 

Евала на Конър, че излиза всеки мач и прочее, но от конт,зия до контузия си има разлика.

Защо? Защо McGregor не излезе срещу Cerrone? Ще ви кажа - защото обича бойци, които са извън форма и имат 10 дни за подготовка, както беше случая с Mendez.

Мнението на Jimmy Smith (Bellator коментатор) за freakshow идеологията на Bellator:

 

Quote

 

"What everyone keeps forgetting, and I’ve seen this over and over and I’ve said it to anyone who will listen, when Kimbo fought Ken, 2.1 million people watched that fight," he told Ariel Helwani. "And when I see ratings like that, I got to tell you at home I kind of went and smashed my head against my desk a couple of times when I read that, when it first came out, because at the end of a fight like that, networks and promoters and the people in charge don’t change policy because of YouTube comments. They don’t care what you say on the blog, they don’t care what you tweet — they care what you watch."

The actual numbers for Bellator 149 did even better, averaging 2.4 million during the Kimbo-Dada 5000 fight, and peaking at 2.7 million. Those numbers shatter Bellator’s normal Friday night cards, even when titles are at stake. Case in point, Smith pointed out a recent event that was centered more on merit than freak show tenants.

"When you see ‘Vengeance,’ which is a card we had — [Daniel] Straus versus [Patricio] Pitbull, they went to war, Michael Chandler knocks out Caveman [David Rickles], we had amazing fights that night… Will Brooks defeats Marcin Held…with real, legit, young, hungry talent, and it got about 800,000 viewers. Peaked about a million. Which wasn’t bad. Kimbo/Ken doubled that.

"So when fans ask me, why do they put on these fights, why do you think they put on these fights? It’s because you watched it. That’s what you asked for. It’s like a buffet, we lay out all this stuff, and what you eat the most of, that’s what’s for dinner. And I ever tell fans is look, we have six months of cards coming up. We have the main card, with King Mo versus Phil Davis. We have Michael Chandler versus Josh Thompson. We have a title fight this week. We have Koreshkov versus our brand spanking new signing at 170 for the title shot, that’s huge. If you don’t want to see Ben Henderson take on Koreshkov April 22, if those don’t get numbers you’re going to see more of the kind of fights that do get numbers."

Smith was refreshingly candid both during the telecast, not sugarcoating anything or trying to further sell a bill of goods. After the event he tweeted "F…M….L…" as if to pound home the point.

He was also refreshingly candid on Monday’s show. Upon hearing the many outcries from fans and media alike about the circus show that nearly came up tragic, he said it’s up to fans to support legitimate talent, who are fighting in the primes of their careers.

"That’s why I try and tell fans, man, help us out," he said. "Watch the fights that have legit guys, and if those numbers are high, that’s what you will see again. And so in a sense it kind of feeds on itself. When that’s what you watch that’s what you’re going to get, and then you turn around and complain that that’s what you get, well, come on.

"When we show real, legit guys make those numbers high and that’s what you’ll get again. Scott is responding to what the fans are telling him. And like I said you can scream, you can tweet, you can whine, you can do whatever you want — viewership is what drives what you see in Bellator. The fans are in charge of what they see. And if you support the young, hungry talent, then you will see young, hungry talent.

"And that’s what everybody forgets, man."

Коментарите на Jose Aldo и Frankie Edgar за пропусната възможност да се бият с McGregor:

 

Aldo:

 

Quote

 

 

 

Защо е отказал двубоя с McGregor, след като беше съобщено, че тренира, в случай, че RDA отпадне: "Any professional needs time to train. It’s not a cockfight where I go there and put my rooster to fight," Aldo said. "It’s a high-level sport, I’m going there to do my job." "When I have time to train, it can happen at any time, anywhere."

 

Дали заслужава директен реванш, след като беше нокаутиран за 13 секунди"I can’t speak for others, and I don’t care what they say," Aldo said. "I know I deserve an immediate rematch. People who say I don’t, I don’t care about them. The important is what the UFC thinks and what we think." "We came to the conclusion that we’re having an immediate rematch."

 

 

Edgar:

 

Quote

 

Дали McGregor трябва да оваканти титлата, ако няма намерения да я защитава в кратък срок: "You can't just hold this weight class up hostage like that for that long," Edgar said Monday on The MMA Hour. "The rumors are he probably can't make 145 again. I mean, the guy cut a boatload to be the biggest guy in there. And now, if you can't make the weight, it's not his problem. He's too big. Just let it go, and maybe we'll meet at 155 down the road. Who knows?"

 

За думите на Dana White, които са го поставили в лоша светлина: "I definitely was the most pissed off (I've ever been), at least in an interview," Edgar said. "I mean, look, this is the way this sport is going. You've got to talk, you've got to speak up for what you want, and you've got to get people interested in the cause you're fighting for. And that's what I'm trying to do, man. I'm just following the lead of these guys who are going up before me, I guess you could say. I tried doing it the old-fashioned way, just earning it and working hard. But there's more to it nowadays, and I'm trying to do my best in getting my spot, whichever way I gotta do it."

McGregor сподели плановете си за UFC 200:

 

Quote

С кого би желал да се бие на UFC 200: "That's there [двубой за WW титлата срещу Robbie Lawler]," McGregor said Wednesday at open workouts here at MGM Grand. "I mean, why not? That's probably the leading option." "I like Robbie," McGregor said. "I won't say a bad word about Robbie. He fights with his heart. He's been around the game so, so long. But if we fought, I would beat Robbie. I'm too fast for him. The size difference is not anything. I've stood beside him. I've seen him."

За критиките идващи от RDA и лагера му: "I mean, dos Anjos is an absolute bum, I swear," McGregor said. "And he's still complaining. How do you pull out of a fight with a bruised foot and he's still talking all this sh*t and his team is talking all this sh*t? Man up and fight. C'mon. I don't know what to say to this guy."

Jose Aldo демонстрира как трябва да се държи един "истински" MMA боец:

 

Quote

 

За загубата на McGregor"He quit, couldn’t take it anymore, wanted to run away," he said of McGregor’s jiu-jitsu. "He’s a p*ssy. He went down and quit.

 

"He was slapped in the face. He looked like a child, getting slapped in the face".

 

Дали McGregor има сила в ударите "Some fighters have a great punch, others don’t. His hands are actually made of soap," Aldo said on Extra Ordinarios. "Of course that anyone goes down if you connect a blow in the chin. Even a child hitting in the chin, anyone goes down. He has hands of soup. He always hits and nobody ever feels it."

 

Защо той трябва да получи title shot, а не Frankie Edgar: "Frankie "The Answer" Edgar, I heard you were asking for a title shot," he wrote. "I respect you as a fighter, but let's check the facts: you lost twice to Ben Henderson before coming to the 145 division and getting a title shot against me without having fought once in the featherweight division. We had a great fight, but everybody knows the result. You can't come here now and cut the line, you have to wait because you don't have any right to ask for a title shot yet. Conor McGregor: instead of running up to a different weight division and talking shit about me, you could make your time valuable and go to a real gym to learn real jiu-jitsu. I'll be ready for you at UFC 200, so we can leave no doubt."

Още отзвук от UFC 196.

 

Rafael Dos Anjos:

 

Quote

 

Кой е очаквал да победи: "Honestly, to tell you the truth, I thought [McGregor] would win," Dos Anjos said. "He did his best because he had a lot of guys offer to fight him; Anthony Pettis, Donald Cerrone, guys in shape, guys in fight camps. So he picked Nate Diaz, who wasn't training for sure. Like [Diaz] said, he didn't spar once for this fight. And he submitted him. So [McGregor] picked the easiest one on his mind, that's why I thought he was going to win."

 

"But Nate Diaz is a tough opponent. I've fought him. He's a really hard guy to finish, has a lot of heart, but he's different than Conor. Conor did not show a lot of heart. He's a lion when he's punching somebody, but when he's getting punched, he becomes a cat. A little cat. When he's punching somebody, he's a lion. But when people punch him, he becomes a cat."

 

Коментарите му за "предаването": "Conor got what he deserved, and God makes everything perfect. Conor, he claimed to be God, and God made everything perfect. God showed him, the world, who he really is," he said. "He just got exposed, and everything he talked, when the Octagon locked, everybody saw the truth. I think everybody saw the truth last Saturday and he got submitted. Even Holly Holm, she went to sleep without tapping. He tapped. Bro, how are you going to tap on the neck, on the choke? Go to sleep, man. Be a man. Holly Holm showed more heart than him."

 

 

Няма как да минем и без "Conor беше насрал":

 

Sonnen:

 

Quote

 

"From a historical standpoint -- mentally -- Conor McGregor fell apart," Sonnen said on the ESPN post-fight coverage. "He cracked. It was just like watching Mike Tyson fold against Evander Holyfield and all the guys that have come before and after. Listen, when you stand up to a bully he will fade every time. Conor McGregor is a bully. Now, that's the mental side."

 

"Physically, Conor fought a great fight," he said. "He landed some fantastic combinations. The problem was Nate Diaz was too big. When Conor landed those shots, Nate didn't go away. Eventually Conor began to fatigue and he began to take punches himself. Forget the rear-naked choke, forget the takedown. This was about fatigue, exhaustion and Conor McGregor, mentally, needed out."

 

 

Kenny Florian:

 

Quote

 

"The other thing is, and Conor kinda of talked about this, is his lack of efficiency," said Florian. "Conor was trying to knock him out with every shot. Before he realized that he was tired, it was too late. I think that was the difference. When he saw that Nate Diaz was still walking forward, still throwing shots and landing them, I think mentally it broke Conor.

 

"He goes, 'My god, against other normal human beings, 145-pounders, these guys crumbled with the power.' I think that really threw him for a loop. He didn't expect Nate Diaz to stay standing like that."

Vitor Belfort за загубата и какво не му е достигнало:

 

Quote

 

"Saturday was a day that I went to work but didn't work," Belfort wrote. (Translation via MMA Fighting). "Have you ever had that feeling?" Belfort wrote on his Facebook page. "I learned through my life that we can't stop learning, and the lesson I take from my fight Saturday is: don't wait too much for the moment because if it doesn't come and you don't go for it, nothing will happen. I didn't in my fight, I was focused in the defense and lost my main quality: the attack.

 

"If I could leave my learning here to you, that cost me a bitter defeat, is don't wait for the moment to come, but go after it with the confident that you will conquer it. Merits to my opponent."

 

 

JDS с коментар за Werdum/Miocic:

 

Quote

 

"[Werdum] looked the same. He looked the same. He's not a striker. He's not a striker. He can't strike with a specialist like Miocic. If you try to remember, he was getting beaten against Mark Hunt very bad. He lost the first round and he was losing the second round, then he threw a very hard knee and he won the fight, but he was losing.

"Against (Cain) Velasquez he did pretty well, he did way better. He got better with his stand-up skills, but it's not the same. When you fight with a specialist, a striking specialist as Miocic is, in my mind he should've tried to take him down and use his jiu-jitsu. When he got caught, knocked out, he was walking forward with no (defense). Something very strange."

"He got [hit] with the same thing. He got [hit] once before he got knocked out," dos Santos said. "He got [hit] once with a straight right that Miocic threw against him, and he kept going. Like, he kept walking towards Miocic without thinking about it. He was doing something dangerous and that's very strange. But as I used to say, as a striker, he's a good jiu-jitsu guy."


 

 

Бившият LW шампион на Bellator, Will Brooks за грешното си отношение и бъдещите планове:

 

Quote

 

"If I had to be 100 percent honest, I do think some of the things I said on Twitter, the way I went about doing things was very unprofessional," Brooks told Ariel Helwani on Monday's edition of The MMA Hour. "It wasn't in my nature. I was just consumed by a lot of things that were going on and I stepped outside of who I am as a person. It was outside of the relationship with Bellator, just seeing the things I was saying and the way I was carrying myself, it just really bummed me out."

 

"I'm sure I upset some people with some of the things that I said and I apologize for those things," Brooks said. ... "I made a little bit of a negative reputation for myself. That's not who I am. That's not in my character. I'm just trying to get back to who I am."

That main goal is winning the UFC lightweight title and that is one Brooks set for himself some time ago. Even when he was still fighting for Bellator.

"I would never shy away from that," he said. "I've let people know plenty of times and I'll continue to say that. I believe that I can go out there and beat anybody in the lightweight division of the UFC and seize that title and be the man on top. I just have that belief in my body and I have that in my bones and I can feel it. I know I can do it. If that opportunity presents itself, I will definitely seize that moment. I will take that opportunity."

"All I can tell you is that I'm gonna be in shape," Brooks said. "Whatever happens next, I'm gonna give them the best that I've got it. Wherever I end up, whatever organization I end up with, they're gonna get the best Will Brooks that anybody has ever seen."

Stephen Thompson коментира Tyron Woodley и Maia срещу Condit:
 

Quote

 

За желанието на Woodley да търси "money fights": "The way the UFC is going, some of these fighters are looking for these money fights," Thompson said. "But, those champions who just got the belt and literally had the belt on for thirty seconds and who are asking for one, well that's very disappointing. I don't know if you saw it on Fox Sports 1 when I very respectfully called him [Woodley] out? I did not expect him to say no I want a money fight after just putting the belt on.

"You know, defend the title a few times--that's how I look at it. That's what Robbie Lawler did and that's what the champions did before him and before they started asking for money fights. I just wanted to say that's the way it goes. I mean, Tyron was preaching the other way around when he didn't get his shot and now he's got the title, for him to do that to me is hypocritical. But, It is what it is, it's going to happen, it's definitely going to happen."

 

Дали има желание да се бие с победителя от Maia и Condit, ако не получи title shot:  "I've thought about that and yeah, Condit has been on top before I was even in the UFC and Demian Maia has been in the game longer than I have as well so if it doesn't happen who else do I fight?" Thompson said. "That's one of the reasons why I am here because I want to get up close and personal and see the fights going on tomorrow and the main event. I'd throw down with either one of them."

 

Прогноза за битката между Maia и Condit:  "Man I dunno, I know Carlos Condit has all the tools to keep Demian Maia at bay but Demian Maia is the best at what he does and he's one of the best MMA grapplers in the sport," Thompson said. "I know he [Maia] is going to be ready for it but at the top of the game it's so hard to pick someone who's going to win."

Още от Rory MacDonald:
 

Quote

 

За разликата между Bellator и UFC: "The production of the show, it just stands out right away," MacDonald said of Bellator. "The big screens, the entrances. They do it bigger. They do it right here. It's a fight show here. They want to promote a fighter, they want to build it. It's not generic where everyone is wearing the same thing. We get to be our own individual self, promote ourselves. Where I was before, everyone is wearing the same uniforms now, we're all walking out of the same, boring dressing room or the gate. It's boring. People are tired of that."

 

За самата сделка и направата и: "It's been a long time in the making," MacDonald said. "I've had a lot to consider probably over a year. We've been in talks with Bellator for a long time now. It's gone back and forth with the UFC. We've put a great deal together. We're gonna build a great business together. Bellator believes in me; I believe in the company. We're gonna take it to the next level. We're gonna take over."

 

За първата му битка, която се очаква да се проведе през 2017: "We're gonna take Bellator into Canada and we're gonna do it big," MacDonald said. "We're gonna reinvigorate that market. Those fans are gonna get a proper fight show again."

GSP отговаря на критиките на Dana White и кога ще се завърне в UFC:

 

Quote

 

Какво бави завръщането му:  "I want to come back. They know the terms that I want, and trust me, I'm very reasonable. So it's up to them," St-Pierre said Wednesday on UFC Tonight. "We tried. My agent tried to reach them and they're hard to reach, but I guess they're going to come back soon. Hopefully, we'll see."

 

Защо иска нов договор:  "If you see it from my perspective, I'm making a lot of money now even though I'm not fighting. And my contract is old," St-Pierre said. "My contract was made before the Reebok deal, and when we asked, basically, it's now because if I go back and fight I cannot advertise my sponsors, so I'm losing money if I go back to fight on the old terms of my contract. So, it's reasonable. I'm just waiting to so what's going to happen."

 

Критиките на Dana White, че GSP е загубил желанието да бъде боец: "He doesn't know anything about me," St-Pierre said. "I'm a smart guy. I'm not the kind of guy you're going to say that (about), and okay I'm going to sign right here, I'm going to fight for peanuts. No, I'm a smart person. It doesn't work, these things on me. But I'm going to tell him something, to Dana, let me fight once and you'll see in the first minute of the fight that what you just said is wrong.

 

"Let me fight Tyrone Woodley, then we'll see if I want to be world champion again. I understand what he means, and I'm not angry at Dana. He does what he does for the best of his interests. I do what I do for the best of my interests. One day when all of that is going to be over, we'll probably be friends, like most of the guys who I've fought. But now, it's like a game. He's doing his game, I'm doing mine."

 

Кое PPV му е приоритет за завръщане:  "I don't think it's a coincidence that it's in Toronto," St-Pierre said. "Who would be a better man than myself to headline a card in Toronto, to fill up the Air Canada (Centre) and get back the Canadian fans, raise the pay-per-view up because now Rory (MacDonald) is going to Bellator? I'm the man for the job."

Поредният изгърмял с допинг в UFC..
 

Quote

Боецът в тежка категория от UFC Ruslan Magomedov е уличен в употреба на забранени препарати от страна на Антидопинговата агенция на САЩ (USADA), потвърдиха от UFC.


Пробата на Magomedov е била взета на 7 септември, като тя се е оказала положителна.

Това е неприятна новина за руснака, имайки предвид, че той е в серия от девет поредни победи на сметката си - последните три от тях в UFC. За последно той взе участие на UFC 192 преди почти година, постигайки успех над Shawn Jordan.

По план Ruslan Magomedov трябваше да се изправи срещу Stefan Struve на UFC 204, но по-рано през този месец той се оттегли от срещата заради заболяване.

Magomedov бе под №12 в ранкинга на тежка категория на UFC.

Woodley: "Ако GSP не се бие с мен, то аз съм най-великият WW боец в историята."
 

Quote

“[St-Pierre] should have to fight me. If you are the best welterweight of all time, you’re gonna come back into the sport and go up a weight class? I guarantee you if Demian Maia would have won, he would have been talking about fighting Demian Maia. I guarantee if Stephen Thompson would have won, he’d have been looking to fight Stephen Thompson. He doesn’t want to fight me because I’m a better version of him.

 

“When was the last time Michael Bisping fought? Think about it. I fought four world title fights against actual No. 1 contenders. Has he ever fought a No. 1 contender? I fought the No. 1 contender twice. I fought the No. 1 contender after that. And I fought the world champion who was Robbie Lawler at the time before that. I’m the only one that’s going by the old set of rules. So if it’s not Georges St-Pierre, let him run. But guess what? Whoever you put in front of me, I’m gonna run through them, I’m gonna beat them, and if he does not fight me, by default I will be the best welterweight of all-time.”

Woodley с ултиматум към Dana White: "Дължиш ми извинение. Ако не получа такова ще изтекат неща, които хората не искат на бял свят. Не се шегувам."

 

Quote

 

“I’ve done nothing but good stuff for the sport. I’ve done nothing but be a good model for the f*cking organization. I go out there and I fight with integrity. I covered your sport from the FOX desk a week before my fight. I always uphold my responsibilities to the organization. It’s timeout for that. The word behind ‘business’ is ‘man.’ You need to be a man, you owe me a public apology. And if I don’t get that, I’m going to start leaking some sh*t that people don’t want to be out in the wind. I’m not even kidding about that.”

 

Asked to clarify what he meant about leaks, Woodley declined to elaborate. “They know what I’m referring to. I’m due a public apology,” he said.

 


В интервю, пенсионираният Anthony Joshua заяви, че ще се бие с Jones, ако парите са правилни. Друг интересен момент е, че в момента е свободен агент и, ако иска, може да подпише с Bellator:
 

Quote

“I’m kind of on the fence,” Johnson told Ariel Helwani, with regard to his return to the sport. “It would have to be worth it for me financially because I have so much going on already. If I did comeback, it would just be to fight the legend Jon Jones. “I’ve beaten pretty much everyone else except for Daniel (Cormier) and Jon. Jon got hit with some big punches from Daniel. I know if I had hit him with some of those punches he most likely would have went down.

“I’m out,” he said. “UFC sent me my termination papers. They terminated my contract, I think, three days later. They respected my wishes and I respect them for that.

“Yeah, if I want to,” he replied when asked could he sign for a different promotion. “I’m no longer a UFC fighter.”

Seems the war between Tyron Woodley and Dana White has cooled off ... with the UFC president telling TMZ Sports they finally talked things out after blasting each other in the media.

 

It all started after UFC 214 -- White ripped Tyron's performance against Demian Maia. Woodley fired back demanding a public apology from White or else he would "start leaking some sh*t that people don't want to be out in the wind."

 

We reached out to White to see where things stand and he told us, "Woodley and I talked and he said he was just pissed and upset and didn't mean it." We also spoke with Tyron who says, "We good."
