Silva wants Yoel, but only for the Interim Title, or he is done.

Anderson Silva is training and wanting to fight June 3rd, on the UFC card in Brazil. He was originally suppose to fight Kelvin Gastelum. Kelvin was pulled from the card. Anderson has his eye on Yoel Romero, a top contender. It’s the biggest fight Anderson can get to put him in title contention.

The middleweight champion Michael Bisping will be taking on GSP sometime in the future. Anderson Silva appeared on the MMA Hour with Ariel Helwani, he had this to say about a potential match up with Top middleweight contender Yoel Romero, and about his potential reitirement.

“The guys (UFC) no give this fight for me for the interim belt, I’m done. I’ll go be with my family. I’m done,” Silva said

“This is perfect bullsh-t. I’m tired. I’m so tired. I’m respectful long time. Everything, I never talk about bad situations in UFC.

I think I’m done. I fight for long time in my life. And I’m tired, bro. I’m so upset. “I have my legacy, I have my story,” Silva continued. “It’s very frustrating, because this is the second time I’m not fighting in my country.”

 Yoel Romero also had this to say to the MMA Hour  “Only for the interim championship,” Romero told “The MMA Hour.” “It’s a good option, you know.”

Even though The UFC has been handing out interim titles like Halloween candy as of late, Dana White has stated on several occasions that he does not want to create an interim title for the middleweight division. Lets see if the retirement threats change Dana Whites mind.

Germaine de Randamie dealing with personal issues. Management says retirement rumors are false

Earlier in the week rumors came out that Germaine de Randamie, the women’s featherweight champion was considering retirement. Her manager has responded to those rumors

“She’s got things going on at home and stuff going on at police academy,” Brian Butler-Au of Suckerpunch Entertainment today told MMAjunkie. “The UFC’s aware of it, and we are working through it. That’s all I can say at the moment.”

Germaine is currently 7-3, we last saw her back on the UFC 208 card, where she won a decision over former women’s bantamweight champion, Holly Holm. The winner of that fight was suppose to get Cyborg. The fight had a lot of controversy, due to shots after the bell.

Germaine has stated that she wants to rematch Holly Holm, but Germaine may need surgery on her hand before that can happen.

Sam Alvey will break a UFC record tomorrow

We last saw Smiling Sam Alvey when he fought Nate Marquardt, on the UFC on Fox: Shevchenko vs Pena card. Sam came away with the win, putting him at 4 in a row and tying a UFC record.

The record Sam is set to break, is for most fights within a one year time frame. He currently has five, he is tied with Roger Huerta, Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone, and fellow welterweight Neil Magny.

Tomorrow on the UFC Fight Night: Swanson VS Lobov card, Sam will go head to head against Thales Leites. This will be his sixth UFC fight within a one year time frame, earning him the UFC record.

It really is a significant record and a sign of how durable Sam is. We see so many fighters plagued with injuries and unable to fight. Some fighters are lucky to be able to fight 6 times in 3 years.

After Sam fights Thales Leites, he will still have 2 months before his one year window is up, meaning he could actually go for a 7th fight. That would really set the bar and make it one of the hardest records in the UFC to break.

WARNING UNCENSORED – Alleged nude photos of Miesha Tate

Below you will find two alleged nude picture’s of former UFC Bantamweight champion, Miesha Tate. Both pictures are uncensored. Recently WWE superstar Paige had her photo’s leaked, now it appears that Miesha Tate is the next person to have photo’s leaked.

In other words, if you don’t want to see a naked woman click off the page, make sure you share it first though haha.

Rumble Johnson and Chris Weidman both to file appeal’s to NYSAC

Well UFC 210 has come and gone, but not without controversy. As many of you already know, Daniel Cormier weighed in at 206.4. After DC stepped off the scale, He left the weigh-in area for less than three minutes, then returned and weighed in at 205.

During the second weigh-in attempt, Daniel Cormier grabbed the towel that was being held up in front of him. DC has said that he was grabbing the towel to hide his junk and that it had no effect on the weigh-in.

Earlier this week a video came out with two professional fighters who did a demonstration showing that grabbing the towel could actually effect the weigh-in, helping to hide some weight.

Johnson’s manager Ali Abdelaziz, told ESPN that the Johnson camp will file a complaint with the New York State Athletic Commission “sometime this week” and that he had informed UFC President Dana White of their intentions to do so, before the fight.

“I understand New York is new to regulating mixed martial arts, but they’ve been doing boxing for a long time,” Abelaziz added. “Everybody is trying to sweep this under the rug, but it’s not going to happen.”

Now to switch gears. Former middleweight champ Chris Weidman is also filling an appeal with the New York State Athletic Commision. Chris went up against Gegard Mousasi. The fight ended in the second round in one of the weirdest endings we have seen in the UFC.

The ref called for a pause in action in the second round. Chris ate a couple knees that were deemed illegal, after calling pause and telling Wiedman he has 5 minutes to recover, the ref left the cage only to return moments later telling Wiedman it was actually a legal knee.

This was very strange because they told Chris it was a legal knee, but said New York didn’t have a replay rule, so no replays were allowed to be used, but they did use a replay just moments after pausing the action and made their judgement from the replay.

The fight was then called a TKO victory for Gegard, putting Chris Weidman on a three fight losing streak. Chris had this to say about the situation.

“If it was a legal knee, I would have loved to have just kept fighting. It shouldn’t have been stopped, but the ref, at the end of the day, is the one who made a judgement call, and in the state of New York, his word is what counts.”

Cerrone And Lawler Set For UFC 213. Who You Got?


 Espn’s Brett Okamoto reported has reported today that former UFC Welterweight Champion Robbie Lawler will face former lightweight contender Donald Cerrone at UFC 213 on July 7. The two were originally supposed to fight at Madison Square Garden at UFC 205, but Lawler stated he needed more time from his knockout loss to current champion Tyrone Woodley.
  Both fighters are known for their striking and punching power. Lawler tends have a more of a boxer-swarmer style of stalking his opponents and wearing them down at close range. Cerrone’s fighting is more of a calculated Muay Thai style that relies more on long range kicking. Cerrone tends to be slower starter, but is quick to explode once he finds his rhythm.

Matt Hughes considers fighting, Royce Gracie wants rematch

Matt Hughes recently had this to say to mmafighting.com,  “If I could find an opponent that I think I could beat, I would go again”. Well with the recent news that Matt Hughes was possibly interested in fighting again, he was called out by a legend, Royce Gracie. Not to get off track but earlier this week Vitor Belfort had mentioned the UFC should have a legends division. Bellator already proved that “fun fights” can gain lots of attention and good ratings.

Matt Hughes has not fought since September 24th, 2011. On the UFC 135 card, where he lost by first round KO to Josh Koscheck. Before that, B.J Penn also finished him in the first round, putting him on a 2 fight losing skid. Matt Hughes has a career record of 45-9. He is a former UFC welterweight champion, he defended his welterweight title 6 times during his first run as champion. Recently, he told Joe Buck that he’s “in talks” to fight again.

Only time will tell if comes back and which promotion, Bellator seems likely. Royce Gracie who most recently fought for Bellator, back in February 2016, when he took on Ken Shamrock. He won by first round TKO. Royce Gracie is what you call an OG, he goes all the way back to UFC 1 . On the subject of  Matt Hughes, Gracie had this to say “Man, that would be great, that would be great. Everybody wants to see this second fight.”

These two first fought back at UFC 60, Matt Hughes won by first round TKO. The first fight wasn’t even close, Matt Hughes dominated. So would you be interested in seeing a rematch?

Penn will return against Dennis Siver

B.J. Penn will return against Dennis Siver in Oklahoma City, on June 25, on the new UFC Fight Night card. The new match up was announced on The UFC Tonight show, a weekly program that is no stranger to breaking news.

We last saw Penn take on Yair Rodriguez, a one sided beat down. While Siver is tough, he’s not nearly the killer that Yair is, this is a very winnable fight for Penn. Dennis Siver is a 38 year old fighter on a two fight losing streak.

Penn is far past his prime and taken many beatings in his last few fights but the guy just doesn’t wanna call it quits. You have to admire his fire and determination to get back on track and get his hand raised again in the octagon. Can’t be good for his health though, many believe he should retire, but that is Penn’s decision, not the fans.

About Time!! Chael VS Wanderlei At Bellator 180


The Associated Press says that Chael Sonnen and Wanderlei Silva will finally get that fight after all. The pair will headline Bellator 180 on June 24th at the Madison Square in New York City. The two were supposed to fight back at UFC 175 in 2014, but both fighters got suspended indefinitely for failed PED tests. 

Bellator President Scott Corker told the AP that it will also be Bellator’s first pay-per view event. “We always said when we come to New York, we’ll bring the biggest and best fight card we’ve ever had in the history of this company. We’re putting it together, and our roster is robust enough that we feel like it’s time we get in the pay-per view business, so here we go.

Silva hasn’t fought in over two years since the suspension in June 2014, while Sonnen came back to fight Tito Ortiz at Bellator in January. The two have gone back and forth with trash talk on Twitter over the years, so there will likely still be tension between the two. Both fighters maybe older and rustier, but we finally get the “Axe Murderer” Silva against the “American Gangster” Sonnen.

Ryan Bader Is Another UFC Light-Heavyweight Moving To Bellator 


Former  UFC light-heavyweight contender Ryan Bader is another UFC veteran that has moved to Bellator MMA. The website MMAJunkie says Bellator President Scott Corker has informed them that Bader signed a multi-fight contract with Bellator after some time as a free agent when his UFC contract expired. Previous UFC light-heavyweights that have moved to Bellator in the past and present include Tito Ortiz, Quinton Jackson, Stephen Bonnar, Phil Davis, and Chael Sonnen.

Bader was the winner of The Ultimate Fighter 8, and went on to defeat former LH champions such as Keith Jardine, Quinton Jackson, Rashad Evans. Bader also defeated the respected Pride veteran Antonio Rogerio Nogueira. However, Bader lost to other former LH champions such as Jon Jones, Tito Ortiz, and Lyoto Machida.

 After his loss to former title challenger Glover Texeira, Bader went on an impressive five fight win streak (including ones over Davis and Evans). But that ended in his last fight after being KOed in the first round by another title challenger named Anthony Johnson. Maybe Bader will have better luck reaching the title in the less competitive Bellator roster.
