UFC July: I'm literally gonna watch it because of Snoop Dogg

Last month's thread is here. June's main theme was whether or not Mighty Mouse was ducking TJ Dillashaw (he's not) and how much of a lying liar who lies Dana White is (he is).

We saw four cards come and go during June and they all had some great things going for them.

Starting us off was UFC 212 from Rio de Janeiro on June 3rd. Our main event of the evening saw Jose Aldo looking to unify the Featherweight championships, taking on the younger Max Holloway across five rounds. Turns out, Max didn't quite need three, scoring the knockdown on Aldo and chasing in to get back mount and rain down blows before the fight was stopped. Holloway was incredibly humble and appreciative of the Brazilian crowd, who went from cheering wildly for Aldo, to booing Holloway, to filing out in silence and just trying to get home before the wild dogs of the favela started preying on them. This was a fun fight and while both men looked in excellent form, Holloway had the crisper strikes. Aldo didn't engage with leg kicks after a single one in the first round, mystifying some as to why he wouldn't go to his tried-and-true method of chopping an opponent down.

Also on this card was former Women's Strawweight championship contender Cláudia Gadelha hoping to fight her way into another championship match by taking on Karolina Kowalkiewicz. Gadelha had been talking up her increased cardio and the work she had done with pacing in the lead up to this fight; unfortunately we had no chance to see this as she choked out the Polish fighter in a little over three minutes. Kowalkiewicz continues to demonstrate that she's basically an inferior copy of Joanna Jędrzejczyk, with her takedown defense not being up to the task.

Vitor Belfort was on this card, because of course he was, getting a Home Cooking decision win against Nate Marquadt. With plenty of people expecting this to be his last UFC fight, because he told us it was, people certainly reacted to his announcement that he had one UFC fight left in him, before going to Japan and re-inflating. Another fun fight was Brian Kelleher getting a guillotine choke victory over Iuri Alcântara, the first of only two non-Brazilians to win on this card.

Two weeks later, the UFC headed to Auckland, New Zealand for UFC Fight Night: Lewis vs. Hunt. This was a great card with a whole bunch of cool fights on it. The main event was Mark Hunt showing that the predictions that Derrick Lewis didn't have the striking discipline to stand with him were 100% accurate. Lewis looked slow and stiff in the octagon and Hunt stalked him down and unleashed a barrage of body and head blows in late in the fourth to get the TKO finish. After the fight, Lewis appeared to declare his retirement, blaming an injured back for his stiffness and inability to lean into his strikes. He was staggering around the ring with an arched back looking like he was trying to hold in a turd and was punished for it.

The second last fight on the card was Dan Kelly taking on Derek Brunson and showing that while he had the striking to stand with and sufficiently confuse Rashad Evans, it wasn't up to par against Brunson. Dad Kelly was knocked cold after a minute and a quarter of the first round. Ben Nguyen was slated to take on Joe Benevidez on this card, who had to pull out with an injured hand, so we saw him taking on Tim Elliott instead. Eliott was choked out in 49 seconds, probably the biggest upset of the card.

The third card of the month continued the recent theme of heading overseas, with UFC Fight Night: Holm vs. Correia coming live from Singapore. The main event was an affair mared by timidity warnings and taunts from the Brazilian, until Holm decided she had had enough and unleased her left shin into Correia's head for the KO win. Prior to this, we had been treated to three tepid decision victories in a row, with Marcin Tybura and Andrei Arlovski proving that no matter what the judges' cards say, there is often no winner in Trashweight, least of all the fans. And there are those that say that one day Colby Covington will have an interesting fight, but it certainly wasn't this day against Dong Hyun Kim. No, not that one, the other one.

On the undercard, John Tuck choked out an increasingly shop-worn looking Takanori Gomi in a little over a minute. Gomi might need the money he's making here for beer and cigarettes but it still can't be doing him any good to keep taking fights. This puts Gomi on a four-fight losing streak, with only three wins from his last ten.

In another flyweight upset, Ulka Sasaki choked out Justin Scoggins in a little over a round, with Uncle Creepy being a -550 favourite on the betting lines.

Rounding out the month, UFC Fight Night: Chiesa vs. Lee saw some very unusual happenings. In the main event of the evening, with bad blood on display from both fighters in the lead-up, Kevin Lee choked out Michael Chiesa in a little under a round. While initial impressions of this were that the referee, Mario Yamasaki, had stopped the bout early with Chiesa in a solid palm-to-palm choke, further analysis shows that Chiesa was about three seconds away from losing consciousness. Chiesa's camp has filed a complaint against the referee for this, which will almost certainly go nowhere.

One happening that is turning out to be incredibly not unusual, is that Johny Hendricks missed weight. Again. Confirming the regularity of this, my phone now offers me the words "missed" and "weight" any time I type "Johny Hendricks". With his move up to Middleweight seemingly going OK, and a decision win over Hector Lombard to shore him up, it seemed that this elite-level welterweight shouldn't have too much trouble against perennial 185 journeyman Tim Boetsch. Turns out, a hundred and eighty-five pounds was still a bridge too far for Bigg Rigg, costing him another $20,000 in show money. Winning the fight was asking too much again, with Boetsch combining a head kick and standing hammer fists to finish Johny off.

In the women's fight on the main card, Felice Herrig choked the (literal) poo poo out of Justine Kish on her way to a unanimous decision victory. Seriously, Kish poo poo herself in the octagon. It was all over the news, and all over the canvas, but apparently it was fairly lucrative. Earlier that evening, BJ Penn continued to poo poo all over his storied career, this time with a decision loss at Featherweight to the unranked Dennis Siver.


UFC events in July

July is traditionally the UFC's busiest time of the year, and 2017 is no exception. We have 2 PPV events, three other cards and the launch of a new weekly show.

First up is The Ultimate Fighter 25 Finale from Vegas on the 7th - a Friday night. This card has as its main event Micheal Johnson welcoming promotional newcomer Justin Gaethje. Gaethje is undefeated in MMA and the current WSoF Lightweight champion. He likes to leg kick and from his 17 wins he has one decision. Also on this card will be the finale of The Ultimate Fighter, featuring Welterweight fighters who had previously been on TUF and not quite made it due to whatever reason. As of this writing, only Dhiego Lima is confirmed to be in this fight, with one more fight to go on the regular show to determine his opponent.

The very next night brings us UFC 213, again from Vegas. The main event is a rematch between Amanda Nunes and Valentina Shevchenko, this time with the Women's Bantamweight championship on the line. The Men's Bantamweight championship was also supposed to be contested here, but with Cody Garbrandt off having stem cell therapy for his back in Germany, this fight has been scrapped, indefinitely. The co-main event sees Yoel Romero taking on Robert Whittaker for the Interim Middleweight Championship, with the winner taking on Michael Bisping at an undetermined time in the future. Other fun fights on this card include a rematch between Alastair Overeem and Fabricio Verdum, with the winner of this being the contender designate for another crack at Stipe Miocic. Robbie Lawler's comeback fight was scheduled for this against Donald Cerrone, but due to Cowboy being ill, it has been re-scheduled for UFC 214 later in the month.

The following Tuesday, live on FightPass, we will see the premiere episode of Dana White's Tuesday Night Contender. While a separate promotion to the UFC, it is still presented by our favourite thumb-looking fight promoter, with the stated aim of finding more fighters for the UFC. The first evening brings us such much-anticipated fights as Boston Salmon vs. Ricky Turcios, Greg Rebello vs. Zu Anyanwu and other such create-a-fighter matchups between people with no Wikipedia pages. With the show airing exclusively on Fightpass, they're offering fans the choice of two commentary tracks. The first will be a traditional commentary team, yet to be announced. The second will be the exclusive Snoopcast, featuring Snoop Dogg and Uriah Faber.

Heading overseas on the 16th, we go to Glasgow for UFC Fight Night: Nelson vs. Ponzinibbio. A lot of locals fill up this card, including Goon favourite Paul "The Bear Jew" Craig taking on Khalil Rountree.

After that on the 22nd we have UFC on Fox: Weidman vs. Gastelum, with Kelvin coming off a No Contest against Vitor Belfort for testing positive to marijuana metabolites. This also cost Kelvin his fight against Anderson Silva. Chris Weidman looks to pull himself out of his current patch of bad form, having lost his last three fights by KO or TKO.

Rounding out the month we have what could be a card for the ages. On July 29th, UFC 214 will see the promotion returning to California. The main event will be the fourth time that Jon Jones and Daniel Cormier have been scheduled to fight; 182 (fought), 197 (AKA'd) and 200 (dick-pill'd). It remains to be seen that Jones is capable of beating Cormier without his gas station boner medicine which is absolutely what he was taking and it definitely wasn't post-cycle therapy for steroids. It also remains to be seen if Jones can make it into the octagon with plenty of time between now and then for him to drink-drive into a pile of cocaine.

Also scheduled for 214 is a Welterweight championship defense, with Tyron Woodley putting his title on the line against Demian Maia. This could be a major bore of a fight like Woodley's last two outings, so breaths are not being held for a decent scrap. There's also a women's fight on this card between Cristiane Justino and Tonya Evinger for the vacant Women's Featherweight belt.


UFC News

Surprising no-one, Nick Diaz would rather smoke weed and run triathlons as opposed to fight in the UFC. He faces a further suspension from registering three Whereabouts Violations in recent time, as USADA simply couldn't find him to test him.

Carrying on from that, Dana White has indicated that he doesn't think that either Nick Diaz or Ronda Rousey are every coming back to MMA.

Matt Hughes got hit in the head with a train - the former Welterweight champion "drove his pick-up across a grade crossing directly in front of a train". The train hit the passenger side of his truck, and Hughes remains "minimally responsive" in hospital with head injuries.

Former UFC Heavyweight Tim Hague sadly passed away this month, after suffering his sixth KO in two years in a boxing match in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. The fighter lay unconscious for several minutes on the canvas before being brought to hospital, where he never regained consciousness. His family made the decision to turn off his life support and he passed at age 34.



Your Current Champions

Men's Heavyweight Champion - Stipe Miocic (19-2)
Stipe Miocic won the Heavyweight title in May of 2016, stopping Fabricio Verdum in front of his countrymen in a single round. He backed this feat up with anotehr first-round stoppage of the most decorated Heavyweight of all time, Alistair Overeem, in Miocic's home town of Cleveland in September. It was considered that the winner of the fight between Werdum and Cain Velasquez at UFC 207, a rematch of the fight where Werdum took Velasquez' belt from him in 2015, would be Miocic's next opponent, but Velasquez was forced out of this bout with yet another leg injury. Miocic defended his title in May 2017, with yet another first round KO of his opponent, making Junior dos Santos his second scalp as champion and equalling the all-time title defenses record.


Men's Light Heavyweight Champion - Daniel Cormier (20-1)
Daniel Cormier won the belt initiall in May of 2015, winning against the heavy-hitting Anthony Johnson by rear-nake choke in the third round. Cormier defended his belt against Alexander Gustaffson in October of 2015 in a split decision. A planned rematch against Jon Jones was scheduled for UFC 200, which was called off after Jones tested positive for banned substances. Cormier went on to fight Anderson Silva in a non-title bout on three days' notice. Cormier was slated to fight Anthony Johnson in a rematch for the belt in December, a match which did not took place due to Cormier suffering a groin adductor injury. The bout took place at UFC 210 in April, with Cormier defending the belt in under two rounds and Johnson riding off into the sunset with a surprise retirement. The long-awaited rematch with Jones is scheduled for UFC 214 this month.


Men's Middleweight Champion - Michael Bisping (37-7)
Bisping had a fairytale year in 2016, first of all beating the greatest MMA striker of all time Anderson Silva in front of his hometown crowd of Manchester in February. Then, on 17 days notice, he stepped up to fight Luke Rockhold for the Middleweight Championship in June at UFC 199. Bisping joked about not having the regular time to get his cardio ready, meaning he would have to knock Rockhold out in the first round. Against the expectations of everyone everwhere, including his own son, he did exactly that. He capped off his year with a successful defense against Dan Henderson, putting the ghosts of UFC 100 to rest. A defense against Yoel Romero was initially slated, which was then changed to a match against a returning George St. Pierre, with both bouts put on hold due to Bisping suffering an injury in May. A match between Romero and Robert Whittaker is scheduled for UFC 213, for an Interim Middleweight championship to lock in stone Bisping's next opponent.


Men's Welterweight Champion - Tyron Woodley (16-3-1)
Woodley was promised a title shot against the Welterweight champion 17 months before the fight took place. After Robbie Lawler put in Fight Of The Year performances against Rory MacDonald in July 2015 and Carlos Condit in January 2016, Woodley went into their fight in July of 2016 as a significant underdog. This meant nothing, with Lawler going down to strikes in the first round. Woodley defended his belt against Stephen "Wonderboy" Thompson, putting on an incredible fight that ended in a majority draw at UFC 205 in New York in November 2016. A rematch for this fight was held in March month at UFC 209, and it sucked out loud. Woodley announced in April that he has just started his training camp, aiming at a UFC 214 return, against Demian Maia.


Men's Lightweight Champion - Conor MacGregor (21-3)
Lightweight title might as well be vacant at this point in time because Conor is never going to defend the loving thing.


Men's Featherweight Champion - Max Holloway (18-3)
Holloway put together a 9-fight win streak, with several Performance of the Night bonuses, before answering the call to contend for the Interim Featherweight Championship at UFC 206 in December 2016. Taking out Anthony Pettis with a body kick and punches late in the third round, he set himself up for a unification bout against Jose Aldo at UFC 212. Holloway capped off his run is style with a 3rd round TKO victory over Aldo, and now reigns as the undisputed champion at 145.


Men's Bantamweight Champion - Cody Garbrandt (11-0)
After amassing a professional record of 5-0 in the minor leagues, Garbrandt was able to parley this into a UFC contract in January 2015. He then went on to win 5 fights in a row in the UFC, including going from unranked at Bantamweight at the start of 2016 into championship contention at the end. He took on Dominick Cruz for the title at UFC 207 in late December, and in contrast to analysis from a variety of sources, took out Cruz in a unanimous decision. Garbrandt was scheduled to take on TJ Dillashaw at UFC 213 in July, to cap off the current season of The Ultimate Fighter, which has now been cancelled due to a back injury sustained by the champion.


Men's Flyweight Champion - Demetrious Johnson (26-2-1)
After winning the Flyweight Championship in September 2012 in a split decision against Joseph Benevidez, Johnson has amassed a 9-fight streak against the best that the division has had to offer. He has been so dominant that the UFC held an entire Ultimate Figher tournament to find his next challenger. The culmination of this was that Tim Elliott came back out of the MMA wilderness to lose a competitive match against Johnson in early December 2016. Johnson easily defended his title against Wilson Reis in April, tying the all-time title defense record held by Anderson Silva. His next fight is slated to be against TJ Dillashaw for the title, and Johnson indicating he would like TJ to take a fight at 125 and win before taking on the champion. More controversy has come out about this with Dana White accusing MM of ducking TJ, and threatening to shutter the entire division over it.


Women's Featherweight Champion - Vacant
With Germaine de Randamie vacating the title due to understandably not wanting to face a known life-long drug cheat, this championship will be contested at UFC 214 this month, between Cristiane Justino and Tonya Evinger.


Women's Bantamweight Champion - Amanda Nunes (14-4)
Nunes headlined UFC 200 in July of 2016, putting a vicious beating on Miesha Tate and securing a rear-nake choke victory in a little over three minutes. She backed this up with a brutal 48-second TKO victory against former Women's Bantamweight Champion and WMMA pioneer Rounda Rousey in late December 2016. Nunes is currently slated to take on Valentina Shevchenko in a rematch of their March 2016 fight, a match which will headline UFC 213 in July.


Women's Strawweight Champion - Joanna Jędrzejczyk (13-0)
After winning the Women's Strawweight Championship against the one-dimensional Carla Esparza in March 2015, Jędrzejczyk has defended her title four times. Most recent of these was against her Polish countrywoman Karolina Kowalkiewicz at UFC 205 in November 2016. Jędrzejczyk successfully defended her belt against Jessica Andrade at UFC 211 in May.
