Default UFC - World Domination


Hello and welcome to UFC: World Domination. I noticed that there was a lack of a current day UFC game on the WMMA 5 Dynasties board, and thought ‘that right there is an untapped market’, so here I am, ready to start one for you now.

As I said before, this is just a UFC diary, starting in May 2018 which is when the latest Modern Warriors mod was released (if you want to check the mod out, you can do so here). There are a few changes I’ve made to the UFC itself, most of which don’t really matter for the purposes of this dynasty. However, one that is probably controversial is the fact that I have removed the Women’s Featherweight division from the UFC. The reason for this is that there are very few fighters who are actually available to hire (Bellator seem to have taken them all), and the fighters in the UFC’s Women’s Featherweight division are actually made up mostly of 135lbers, bar Cyborg and Megan Anderson. So it is with a heavy heart that I have cut all of the 145lbers, or moved them down to Women’s Bantamweight (sorry Cyborg )

Final thing, just to quickly touch on how the dynasty will be done, PPVs will get full write-ups, whilst Fight Nights will just be summaries, at least until I can get the UFC’s roster numbers down enough to move away from a saturated schedule (more on that later).

Default UFC - Upcoming Schedule (Q2 2018)



UFC Release Upcoming Schedule For 2nd Quarter of 2018

The UFC have announced their upcoming schedule for the part of the year running from now until June. Usually seen as a warm up season, preparing for one of the biggest cards of the year for International Fight Week in July, the UFC have this year decided to go ALL OUT, with two HUGE main events headlining PPVs from Texas and Illinois.

Headlining the UFC 224 will be the first Champion vs. Champion fight since UFC 205, when Conor McGregor became the first man to hold two belt simultaneously in UFC History. Daniel Cormier has a chance to join McGregor in that esteemed club, as he moves up to Heavyweight to fight the Champ, Stipe Miocic, in what should prove to be a ground-breaking fight for the UFC's two heaviest divisions.

However, perhaps eclipsing that HUGE fight is the planned UFC Lightweight fight for UFC 225, where we may FINALLY see Khabib 'The Eagle' Nurmagomedov face Tony 'El Cucuy' Ferguson. These two have been booked together countless times, only for the fight to fall apart days before it is set to take place. We all hope therefore that this time will be different.

Also, sandwiched in between these two MASSIVE cards is a UFC Fight Night offering from New Mexico, featuring a very important Middleweight bout between Chris Weidman and Ronaldo 'Jacare' Souza.

See the entire schedule below.

(Entire fight cards will be announced closer to the event, and as always, card is subject to change)

UFC Announce Plan To Reduce Roster Numbers

Quote:
Today, the UFC announced a strategy to reduce the roster numbers in their weight classes. From now on, all fights between non-ranked fighters will be dubbed 'All or Nothing' fights, where the winner is allowed to continue in the promotion to fight another day whilst the loser will be cut from the UFC.

It is currently unknown what the ideal number of fighters per weight class the UFC has in mind, but reports suggest that it could be between 30-40 fighters per division.

Default UFC 224 - Preview



IIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIITTTTTTTTTTTTTTT’SSSSSS TIME for UFC 224, LIVE from Dallas, Texas, where divisions collide in an EARTH SHATTERING matchup in the Ultimate Fighting Championship!!!!!!

The UFC is presenting an AWESOME 5 fight main card, featuring a DREAM SELECTION of Heavyweight and Light Heavyweight fights!

Quote:
First on the docket is a HUGELY important fight in the Light Heavyweight division as the #4 and #9 ranked fighters do battle in the middle of the Octagon! That’s right, Glover Teixeira and Volkan Oezdemir will face off in a fight that should leave the winner another victory away from a title shot.
Quote:
Next up, the Heavyweights beckon, as Fabricio Werdum (#4) faces power-punching PHENOMENON Derrick Lewis (#8). The stakes are similar to the first fight, with the winner being one win away from that elusive title shot, so another MASSIVE fight here, with BIG Heavyweight ramifications.
Quote:
Speaking of Heavyweight ramifications, they come in TENFOLD here, as Alistair Overeem (#6) and Josh Barnett (#7) FINALLY fight. These two have been atop the Light Heavyweight division for DECADES, and are yet to fight, until UFC 224 that is. Which one of these two Heavyweight BEHEMOTHS will put their name into the hat?
Quote:
Our co-main event takes us back to the Light Heavyweight division, where Alexander Gustafsson (#3) takes on Mauricio ‘Shogun’ Rua (#7) in a BIG #1 Contender’s fight. It has been announced that the winner will face Daniel Cormier for the Light Heavyweight crown, no matter what happens in the main event.
Quote:
And FINALLY, our main event for UFC 224 will see Daniel Cormier vie to become the 2nd man to hold 2 UFC Championships at the same time after Conor McGregor. However, in his way is Stipe Miocic, the RECORD-BREAKING Heavyweight Champion, who has defended the title a RECORD 3 times since defeating Fabricio Werdum for the strap two years ago. Can Cormier enter the history books or will Miocic continue to break records?

Default UFC 224: Miocic vs. Cormier



Presents…

UFC 224: Miocic vs. Cormier

LIVE from Dallas, Texas
Saturday, Week 3, May 2018
Broadcast By: DirecTV (PPV)

Commentary Provided By...


Jon Anik & Joe Rogan

Jon Anik: Hello ladies and gentlemen, and welcome to UFC 224, live from Dallas, Texas, where we have a feast of big man matchups ready for you tonight.

Joe Rogan: Yeah, all our main card fights tonight come from either the Heavyweight or Light Heavyweight divisions, which fits with our main event of course, where the two champions of those division will fight in the Octagon.

JA: That’s correct, so let’s give it over to Bruce Buffer for our first fight, from the Light Heavyweight division, as the number 4 ranked fighter in Glover Teixeira takes on the #9 ranked Volkan Oezdemir.

Quote:
Light Heavyweight Division


(#4) Glover Teixeira (27-6) vs. (#9) Volkan ‘COUSIN’ Oezdemir (15-2)

Referee: Herb Dean
Judges: Bronson Patterson, Brennan Hibbs, Matt Hume
Rules: 3 x 5 Minute Rounds
Weights: Teixeira - 205 lbs, Oezdemir - 205 lbs

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

R1: Teixeira engages, missing a right hand that leaves him open to be countered by a pair of jabs followed by a HUGE RIGHT HOOK, THAT SENDS TEIXEIRA TO THE MAT!!! OEZDEMIR FOLLOWS UP WITH SOME BRUTAL GROUND AND POUND THAT SEALS THE EARLY STOPPAGE!!!!!!!

Volkan Oezdemir def. Glover Teixeira
via KO (Punch) at 0:42 of Round 1
Fight Grade: Good
JA: Big win for Volkan Oezdemir there, demolishing Glover Teixeira inside of one minute.

JR: It was a beautiful counter combination by Volkan, opening Glover up with 2 jabs before hitting a perfect right hook to send his opponent down.

JA: It’ll be interesting to see what’s next for Volkan, especially with our co-main event later tonight being a #1 Contender’s fight, but now we turn our attention to the Heavyweights, where Derrick Lewis and Fabricio Werdum are about to do battle.

Quote:
Heavyweight Division


(#4) Fabricio ‘VAI CAVALO’Werdum (23-8-1) vs. (#8) Derrick ‘THE BLACK BEAST’ Lewis (19-5-1NC)

Referee: Sixten Backus
Judges: Cardo Urso, Kevin Burbank, Bronson Patterson
Rules: 3 x 5 Minute Rounds
Weights: Werdum - 242 lbs, Lewis - 265 lbs

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

R1: Lewis looks confident in his corner, fighting in front of his home crowd and with a size advantage as well. The ref starts the fight and the fighters come together, with the initial exchanges of strikes not leading anywhere, until Werdum hits a left hand, and Lewis replies with a POWERFUL RIGHT HOOK, THAT KNOCKS WERDUM OUT COLD!!!!!!!!!!!!

Derrick Lewis def. Fabricio Werdum
Via KO (Punch) at 1:15 of Round 1
Fight Grade: Good
JA: What a performance by Derrick Lewis!!!

JR: A beautiful right hook connected flush on Werdum’s chin, knocking him out cold as soon as it hit him. A gorgeous punch.

JA: It was indeed, and Lewis now puts himself into Heavyweight Title contention, with his second win on the bounce. But now we must continue on with our main card, and our next fight pits two of the Heavyweight divisions cornerstones against each other, as Josh Barnett and Alistair Overeem meet in the Octagon.

JR: Yeah, it’s actually quite amazing that these two have never fought before, considering how experienced they are, but tonight, we finally get to see these two Heavyweight behemoths battle it out!

Quote:
Heavyweight Division


(#6) Alistair ‘DEMOLITION MAN’ Overeem (43-16-1NC) vs. (#7) Josh ‘THE WARMASTER’ Barnett (35-8)

Referee: Dan Miragliotta
Judges: Bronson Patterson, Brennan Hibbs, Matt Hume
Rules: 3 x 5 Minute Rounds
Weights: Overeem - 265 lbs, Barnett - 249 lbs

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

R1: The fight begins and both men meet in the center of the Octagon, exchanging strikes for over a minute, until Barnett nails a VICIOUS RIGHT CROSS, THAT KNOCKS DOWN OVEREEM. BARNETT SENSES VICTORY, UNLOADING ON THE DEMOLITION MAN WITH
GROUND AND POUND, BEFORE APPLYING A KNEEBAR SUBMISSION, that Overeem successfully defends. The rest of the round sees Barnett on top of Overeem, unsuccessfully trying to submit The Demolition Man with different submission holds.

R2: The first half of the second round sees the two fighters again exchanging strikes, with neither man able to gain an advantage on the feet. This leads Barnett to attempt a takedown on Overeem around halfway through the round (and fight), which he gets and the rest of the round again sees Barnett working submissions on Overeem, who successfully defends them. Much like the first round, this one probably goes to Barnett thanks to the takedown and top control.

R3: The third round is once more more of the same on the feet, with both men exchanging strikes whilst trying to avoid their opponent’s output, and neither man being able to gain control. That is until Barnett again hits a VICIOUS RIGHT CROSS, THAT THIS TIME KNOCKS OVEREEM OUT COLD, AND GIVES BARNETT THE KNOCKOUT VICTORY!!!!!!!!!

Josh Barnett def. Alistair Overeem
Via KO (Punch) at 3:07 of Round 3
Fight Grade: Decent
JA: And it’s Barnett who comes away with the victory, and that’s 2 wins in a row for him, albeit a layoff due to a drug investigation being sandwiched in between those two victories.

JR: Yeah, and I think Barnett will really want to push on and challenge for the UFC belt once more. He hasn’t fought for the belt since winning it in 2002, and he’ll want to put those USADA issues behind him now, and look forward towards the championship once again.

JA: You can be sure of that partner, but it is now time for our co-main event. Alexander Gustafsson and Mauricio ‘Shogun’ Rua are about to fight for a UFC Light Heavyweight Championship opportunity, with the winner being guaranteed a fight against Daniel Cormier in their next fight.

JR: This is a huge fight for both men, Shogun hasn’t fought for a UFC belt in 7 years, whilst some would say that Gustafsson is the only man to not only push Daniel Cormier in the cage, but also Jon Jones.

JA: That’s right, ‘The Mauler’ has been involved in 2 UFC Championship fights already in his career, with him first giving Jon Jones arguably his toughest fight during Jones’ championship reign, before losing to Daniel Cormier in a tight split decision. Let’s see if he can get another opportunity at the title next.

Quote:
Light Heavyweight Division


(#3) Alexander ‘THE MAULER’ Gustafsson (18-4) vs. (#7) Mauricio ‘SHOGUN’ Rua (25-10)

Referee: Dan Miragliotta
Judges: Cardo Urso, Kevin Burbank, Bronson Patterson
Rules: 3 x 5 Minute Rounds
Weights: Gustafsson - 205 lbs, Shogun - 205 lbs

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

R1: The first half of the round is even, with both men staying on the feet and matching each other blow-for-blow. However, as the round continues on, Gustafsson (who although weighing in the same as Shogun, has a clear weight advantage) begins to gain a foothold in the stand-up exchanges, countering Shogun with solid hooks and crosses, and constantly feinting, leaving Shogun open for the counter in a round that the Swede grabbed a hold of as time went on.

R2: The second round begins with more of the same from Gustafsson, weaving and feinting to leave Shogun open and allow him to counter with his own offense. However, this time Shogun decides to try and take matters into his own hands, getting ‘The Mauler’ in a clinch before wrapping his legs around Gustafsson and pulling the Swede to the ground, leaving Gustafsson in Shogun’s guard. The Brazilian immediately goes for a triangle choke, though it is unsuccessful, and has now given up top control to Gustafsson, who uses it to his advantage, hitting shoulder smashes and the like to Shogun, and making sure he stays busy. Shogun tries for a few more triangles throughout the rest of the round, but they are to no avail.

R3: The entirety of the final round is contested on the feet, with more of the same from Gustafsson, continuing to outstrike and outclass Shogun on the feet. As both fighters start to tire, they fall into a sloppy clinch with around a minute of the fight left, and for the remainder of the round, both unsuccessfully attempt to take their opponent down, but with both too tired to really be able to get the other down.

After 3 round we go to the judges scorecards for a decision…

...All 3 judges score the contest 30-27 to the WINNER by Unanimous Decision…

...ALEXANDER ‘THE MAULER’ GUSTAFSSON!!!!


Alexander Gustafsson def. Mauricio Rua
Via Unanimous Decision (30-27, 30-27, 30-27)

Fight Grade: Decent
JA: And it’s Alexander Gustafsson who will face Daniel Cormier for the UFC Light Heavyweight Championship!!!

JR: Great performance from Gustafsson, completely dominant on the feet and not panicking when getting lured into Shogun’s guard, staying calm and using his fight IQ to stay in control. It’ll be really interesting to see how he gets on against DC in their second title fight, it should be a great one.

JA: No doubt about that, but we have no more time to review what’s just happened, as it’s finally time for our main event. The UFC could be changed forever tonight, if Daniel Cormier can become only the second man in UFC history to hold two championships at the same time, after Conor McGregor.

JR: That’s right, but standing in his way is undoubtedly one of the greatest Heavyweights the UFC has ever seen, and in my opinion, one of the most underappreciated fighters in UFC history. Stipe Miocic is the real deal ladies and gentlemen, and he poses Daniel Cormier all sorts of problems.

JA: Yes he does, especially because it is expected that Miocic is going to have a sizable weight advantage in this fight. But we have no more time for previews, no more time for build-ups, it is quite simply time ladies and gents, the Light Heavyweight and Heavyweight Champions of the UFC are ready to do battle!

Quote:
UFC Heavyweight Championship



(Champion) Stipe Miocic (18-2) vs. (Challenger- UFC Light Heavyweight Champion) Daniel ‘DC’ Cormier (20-1-1NC)

Referee: Dan Miragliotta
Judges: Cardo Urso, Kevin Burbank, Matt Hume
Rules: 5 x 5 Minute Rounds
Weights: Miocic(c) - 240 lbs, Cormier - 229 lbs

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

R1: The first round is contested entirely on the feet, and shows how closely matched these two competitors are, at least for the first half of the round. However, as the round goes on, it seems as though Cormier is beginning to gain a foothold, as he outstrikes Miocic for the rest of the round, that although close, probably just goes to Cormier.

R2: As the second round begins, it is clear that Miocic is going to try and take things into his own hands here, walking down Cormier and pressuring the UFC Light Heavyweight Champion. However, this approach has its limitations, as although he has control of the fight, he begins to tire himself out so that towards the end of the round, he attempts to clinch with Cormier to try and buy some recovery time. However, Cormier muscles Miocic up against the cage and begins to land some heavy blows to the Heavyweight Champion’s skull, and although Miocic survives, the round probably swung in Cormier’s favour thanks to that final minute.

R3: The third round begins and both men continue to be relatively even contested on the feet, with Miocic not pressuring as much as he did in the second round in an attempt to regain some energy. However the energy that he has already lost proves to be his downfall, as Cormier slips past a sloppy right hand from Miocic, and hits a POWERFUL RIGHT HOOK, AND THAT IS IT!!!! MIOCIC IS OUT AND DANIEL CORMIER IS THE NEW UFC HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION!!!!!!!

Daniel Cormier def. Stipe Miocic(c)
Via KO (Punch) at 1:55 of Round 3
Fight Grade: Good
JA: And Daniel Cormier makes history, becoming the first man to hold the UFC Heavyweight and Light Heavyweight Titles at the same time.

JR: Well done Daniel Cormier, taking advantage of a tiring Miocic, and becoming the UFC Heavyweight Champion.

JA: Well that is all we have time for I’m afraid, thank you for joining us ladies and gents, and we’ll see you next month, for UFC 225: Nurmagomedov vs. Ferguson.

Default UFC 225 - Preview


IIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIITTTTTTTTTTT'SSSSSSSSS TIME for UFC 225, LIVE from Chicago, Illinois, where FINALLY, two of the best lightweights collide for the UFC Lightweight Championship!!!!!!!

But that's not it, as this card also features a HUGE heavyweight fight, a trilogy fight for one of the Middleweight Division's BIGGEST rivalries and MUCH, MUCH MORE!!!!!!


Quote:
The card's first fight comes from the Women's Strawweight division, as (#5) Livia Renata Souza takes on (#12) Randa Markos. This is Souza's UFC debut, and the fans will be looking forward to seeing one of MMA's brightest prospects take to the Octagon, but it's not an easy start for 'Livinha', as she comes up against one of the veteran fighters in the division in Markos, who can definitely pull off an upset, as she proved when she beat former Strawweight Queen, Carla Esparza last year.
Quote:
Next, we move to the Lightweight division, and a BIG fight that could leave the winner one more fight away from a title shot. When (#7) Anthony Pettis and (#12) Kevin Lee fight in the Octagon, that is what they will be fighting for. Both men have of course fought for titles before, with Lee falling to Tony Ferguson in an Interim Lightweight Title fight, whilst Pettis is a former UFC Lightweight Champion, having dethroned Benson Henderson for the belt.
Quote:
And now, UFC 225 takes a BIG step up, as (#3) Luke Rockhold and (#5) Michael Bisping cap off their rivalry in a HUGE trilogy fight with BIG Middleweight ramifications. It's a free for all in the Middleweight Division at the moment, with Chris Weidman having knocked out 'Jacare' Souza a few weeks back, and with Kelvin Gastelum and Yoel Romero lurking, it's anyone's guess as to who gets the next title shot, but both men can put their names in the hat with a win here.
Quote:
In the co-main event, it's a Heavyweight collision as former title challenger (#2) Francis Ngannou faces (#11) Alexander Volkov, who's been on a tear recently, having defeated the likes of Stefan Struve and Fabricio Werdum. It has therefore been announced that if Volkov wins, then he will be first in line to face new Heavyweight Champion Daniel Cormier.
Quote:
And FINALLY, the main event brings us one of the most anticipated fight's in UFC HISTORY. This fight has been put together too many times, only for it to fall apart, but this time it's going to happen. The UFC Lightweight Champion, Khabib Nurmagomedov, puts his title on the line for the first time against (#3) Tony Ferguson, in the fight the WORLD has been waiting for. Who'll come out on top, 'The Eagle' or 'El Cucuy'? Tune in to find out!

R1: The fight begins and both fighters enter into a clinch, that Markos gets the better of, pushing Souza up against the cage and controlling her opponent with some clinch control. Eventually, after neither fighter does any real damage, the referee brings them back into the center of the Octagon, where they re-engage. Again, Markos aims to get Souza into a clinch, but the Brazilian doesn’t allow, so Markos instead goes for a takedown, that is defended by Souza, and reversed into a takedown of her own. Souza gets side control off of the takedown, but the round ends before she can do any real damage.

R2: The second round begins and again, Markos gets the clinch and pushes Souza against the cage, where she exerts her control again for the first half of the round. But Souza manages to circle her way back to the center, and immediately takes Markos down. As Markos tries to shuffle back the cageside, Souza blocks Markos’ attempted cagewalk, and then CLAMPS ON A GUILLOTINE CHOKE, FORCING MARKOS TO TAP!!!!! SOUZA WINS HER UFC DEBUT!!!!

Livia Renata Souza def. Randa Markos
Via Submission (Guillotine Choke) at 4:39 of Round 2
Fight Grade: Decent
JA: And what a debut for Livia Renata Souza, defeating Randa Markos by submission.

JR: It was impressive, even if there are clearly some improvements that can be made, especially to her stand-up. What we saw here though, was just how much potential this young lady has.

JA: Yeah, I expect that we will be seeing her at the top of the Women’s Strawweight division for years to come. We now go to the Lightweight division however, and a big fight at 155 lbs.

JR: Anthony Pettis and Kevin Lee are about to face off, with both men looking for a win to vault themselves into championship contention. This should be a great fight as well, with Pettis’ unorthodox striking coming up against Lee’s excellent wrestling ability.

Lightweight Division


(#7) Anthony ‘SHOWTIME’ Pettis (20-7) vs. (#12) Kevin ‘THE MOTOWN PHENOM’ Lee (16-3)

Referee: Sixten Backus
Judges: Kevin Burbank, Bronson Patterson, Brennan Hibbs
Rules: 3 x 5 Minute Rounds
Weights: Pettis - 155 lbs, Lee - 155 lbs
Odds: Pettis: +200, Lee: -260

------------------------------------------------------

R1: The round begins and Lee ignores the touch of gloves offered by Pettis. As they meet in the centre of the Octagon, they both trade punches, until Lee hits a HIGH ROUNDHOUSE KICK, THAT WOBBLES PETTIS!!! LEE TRIES TO FOLLOW UP WITH A KNEE TO THE CHEST, but it doesn’t do enough damage and Pettis can clear his head and circle back to the centre of the cage. However, that blow clearly hurt Pettis, as Lee dominates on the feet from that point on, til the end of the round.

R2: The second round is played out in the same way the first was going until Lee hurt Pettis, with both men trading strikes in an even stand-up battle. Pettis is the main aggressor, pressuring Lee likely in an attempt to stifle the ‘Motown Phenom’s’ takedowns. Both men land strikes, but nothing damaging enough to put their opponent in real trouble as the round comes to an end.

R3: The fighters come together for the final round, with both men trading strikes once again, until Lee hits a WICKED RIGHT UPPERCUT, SENDING PETTIS TO THE FLOOR!!! LEE FOLLOWS UP WITH GROUND AND POUND AND THE REFEREE STEPS IN TO END THE FIGHT!!!!!!!

Kevin Lee def. Anthony Pettis
Via TKO (Strikes) at 0:53 of Round 3
Fight Grade: Good
JA: And Kevin Lee puts himself into contention with a huge win over Anthony Pettis!

JR: That was a big win for Lee, and will almost definitely move him into the top 10, and with how much the Lightweight division fluctuates, he could be only a win or two away from a title shot.

JA: That’s right, but we must now turn our attention to the Middleweight division, and one of the fiercest rivalries in recent UFC history. Michael Bisping and Luke Rockhold each own a win against the other, and now it is time for this rivalry to be settled once and for all!

Quote:
Middleweight Division


(#3) Luke Rockhold (16-4) vs. (#5) Michael ‘THE COUNT’ Bisping (30-9)

Referee: Herb Dean
Judges: Bronson Patterson, Brennan Hibbs, Sal D’Amato
Rules: 3 x 5 Minute Rounds
Weights: Rockhold - 185 lbs, Bisping - 185 lbs
Odds: Rockhold: -250, Bisping +190

--------------------------------------------------------------------

R1: The fight begins and the two fighters don’t touch gloves, proving their mutual dislike of each other. The opening exchanges are even, with both fighters feeling each other out, and neither landing anything damaging. That is until Rockhold hits a HIGH RIGHT HEAD KICK THAT KNOCKS BISPING DOWN!!!! ROCKHOLD POUNCES, BUT IS UNABLE TO PUT BISPING AWAY, AND THE BRIT SURVIVES FOR NOW!! Rockhold sees the rest of the round out in side control.

R2: In the second round, it is clear that Rockhold has gained confidence after the knock down in the first, whilst Bisping has wilted, and it results in a dominant round for the American, with Bisping being out-struck and outclassed on the feet for the entirety of the round. Bisping fails to get any offense going at all, and if anything does well to get to the end of the round still in the fight.

R3: Both fighters see out the first minute of the round with little action, both looking tired having fought two rounds already. However, Rockhold sees an opening and attacks with a WICKED LEFT UPPERCUT THAT KNOCKS BISPING OUT COLD!!!!!!!!! WHAT A PERFORMANCE FROM ROCKHOLD!!!!

Luke Rockhold def. Michael Bisping
Via Knockout (Punch) at 1:02 of Round 3
Fight Grade: Good
JA: What a performance from Luke Rockhold, dominating Michael Bisping before knocking him out in the third round.

JR: It was a good performance indeed, and puts Rockhold into Middleweight Title contention along with Chris Weidman, who knocked out Jacare Souza in the first round a few weeks back.

JA: Yeah, it’ll be real interesting to see who gets the next title shot there, and we still have another big Middleweight fight that has yet to be announced happening in a few weeks. Anyway, speaking of title chances, if Alexander Volkov wins in our co-main event, he will get the next crack at new UFC Heavyweight Champion, Daniel Cormier.

JR: This is a huge opportunity for Volkov, but standing in his way is Francis Ngannou, who before fighting Stipe Miocic for the title in a losing effort, was steamrolling his way through the Heavyweight division, and he’ll want to get back to winning ways tonight.

Quote:
Heavyweight Division


(#2) Francis ‘THE PREDATOR’ Ngannou (11-2) vs. (#11) Alexander ‘DRAGO’ Volkov (30-6)

Referee: Herb Dean
Judges: Anthony Dimitriou, Kevin Burbank, Bronson Patterson
Rules: 3 x 5 Minute Rounds
Weights: Ngannou -250 lbs, Volkov - 250 lbs
Odds: Ngannou: -640, Volkov: +510

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

R1: The round begins and it is clear that these two have come to fight, with neither man offering little in terms of defense, and both hitting relatively clean shots on their opponent. It is therefore just a question of who will hit the biggest shot first, and even though most would put their money on that being Ngannou, it is in fact Volkov, who follows up a three-punch combination with a HUGE RIGHT HOOK, KNOCKING NGANNOU DOWN!!! HE FOLLOWS UP WITH GROUND AND POUND AS HERB DEAN STEPS IN!!!

Via TKO (Strikes) at 3:44 of Round 1
Fight Grade: Great
JA: Alexander Volkov!!! What an upset!!! He knocks out Francis Ngannou in the first round to get first dibs at Daniel Cormier!!!

JR: WOW!!! I was not expecting that! What an awesome performance for Alexander Volkov, who is all of a sudden Heavyweight’s hottest property, whilst Ngannou seems to have fallen off a cliff.

JA: Sadly though, we have no time to dwell on our co-main event, as it’s time for the final fight of the night, for the UFC Lightweight Championship. Finally, Khabib Nurmagomedov and Tony Ferguson are set to square off in the Octagon!

JR: This should be incredible. This fight is, in my opinion, the best that can be made in MMA today, and I can’t wait to see who comes out on top.

Quote:
UFC Lightweight Championship




(Champion) Khabib ‘THE EAGLE’ Nurmagomedov (26-0) vs. (#3) Tony ‘EL CUCUY’ Ferguson (23-3)

Referee: Herb Dean
Judges: Sal D’Amato, Anthony Dimitriou, Kevin Burbank
Rules: 5 x 5 Minute Rounds
Weights: Nurmagomedov - 155 lbs, Ferguson - 155 lbs
Odds: Nurmagomedov: -110, Ferguson: +100

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

R1: Nurmagomedov immediately goes in for the takedown as soon as the bell rings, getting it and sending Ferguson to the ground. However he then proceeds to practically lay on his opponent for the next few minutes, choosing not to advance his position and staying close to Ferguson’s body as to prevent any threat from submissions. Eventually Herb Dean makes the fighters stand up, but Khabib again takes Ferguson down and proceeds to lay on him and see the round out.

R2: The bell rings to start the second round and again, Khabib takes Ferguson down and lays on him for the first half of the round. The referee again stands them back up, but this time, Ferguson defends the takedown from Khabib, who is forced to push ‘El Cucuy’ up against the cage. However, Khabib shows off his wrestling skills by suplexing Ferguson to the mat as the time expires on another dominant round for Khabib, albeit in pretty boring one.

R3: Ferguson again does well to defend the immediate takedown from Nurmagomedov, who once again pushes Ferguson up against the cage. However this time, Khabib decides to do some clinch work, hitting Ferguson with short elbows and knees, but not doing enough damage in Herb Dean’s eyes, who breaks up the grapple and restarts the fight in the centre. Khabib again goes for the takedown, and Ferguson again defends and they end up in the same position they were in previously, up against the cage. However this time, Ferguson manages to create some separation and wheel his way out of the clinch. He then proceeds to pick Nurmagomedov apart on the feet, but as the round ends, Khabib gets another late takedown. Probably another round for Khabib, who had more control time and did a little bit more damage.

R4: This round begins with Ferguson aggressively taking the initiative, not allowing Khabib any space to work the takedown. Eventually however, Khabib proves to good, and takes Ferguson down again before once again, laying on top of him and not doing much in top control. The ref again stands them up only for Khabib to get the fight back to the ground almost immediately, where he sees the round out on top of Ferguson.

R5: The final round goes much the same way as the others, with Khabib taking down Ferguson, this time by catching a kick, before laying on top of him in top control, not doing much. When the referee stands them up again, it is clear that having a 155 lbs monster laying on him for the majority of the fight has had a big effect on Ferguson, who looks shattered and once again gets taken down to bring the disappointing fight to a close.

After 5 rounds, we go to the judges scorecards for a decision…

...all 3 judges score the contest 50-45 to the WINNER by Unanimous Decision…

AAAAANNNNDDD STILL THE UFC LIGHTWEIGHT CHAMPION…

...KHABIB ‘THE EAGLE’ NURMAGOMEDOV!!!!!

Khabib Nurmagomedov def. Tony Ferguson
Via Unanimous Decision (50-45, 50-45, 50-45)
Fight Grade: Poor
JA: And we sadly end on a disappointing fight, with Khabib Nurmagomedov retaining his title in one of the biggest anti-climaxes of the year.

JR: There’s no doubt the fight wasn’t great, but you’ve got to give huge props to Khabib, who ragdolled Ferguson for 5 whole rounds, and didn’t look in danger once in the entire fight.

JA: It was most definitely a dominant performance, no doubt about that. Anyway, that’s all we’ve got time for folks, and we’ll see you next month, for UFC 226: McGregor vs. Diaz III!!!
