Last month's thread is here. August came and went fairly quickly, and all though one rivalry was finished, another may have started. Though the opponent of a chosen son of the PSP poo poo eating wildmen is one we may not have expected:

August Recap

The events in August were few, but they surely made up for the lack of events reminding us all of a time before USADA and CM “Punkotine” Punk where it was nice to have breathing room between events.

First, at UFC 227 we had an amazing card featuring two title fights and a host of contender matchups.

In the co-main event we saw the P4P King and longest reigning UFC champion Demetrious “Mighty Mouse” Johnson dethroned from the Flyweight mountain (mole hill really) in a rematch against Henry “The Messenger” Cejudo. Cejudo and Johnson’s second bout went the distance and it was, by all accounts, an exciting fight as it was a narrow victory for The Messenger. Johnson confirmed he had felt ligament tears and would need time to recover before possibly getting a rematch but it’s all a rematch everyone agrees should happen due to how close the fight was and Mighty Mouse’s reign being so long there are children in kindergarten who were born when he first won the gold. Following his victory however, The Messenger issued a challenge for the UFC Bantamweight championship and offered to move up to 135 for a title bout despite it seeming premature in his reign.

UFC 227’s main event saw the heated Team Alpha Male vs TJ Dillashaw rivalry firmly closed as Dillashaw faced off against former friend and training partner Cody Garbrandt for the Bantamweight Championship. The fight ended the same way as their previous encounter, but in much quicker fashion. Dillashaws movement and timing were what helped him KO Garbrandt for a second time and retain his championship. Dillashaw embraced the opportunity to fight Cejudo in a Champion vs Champion bout, though some are pining for him to take on Dominick Cruz, the last man to beat him, in order for Dillashaw to firmly be able to claim he is the best Bantamweight in history.

Later in the month the UFC headed to Nebraska for UFC Fight Night: Gaethje vs Vick for what was admittedly a lower profile card, but one that delivered on the action. On the undercard James Krause picked up a clean TKO against Warlley Alves. On the main card Bryan Barberena closed out the career of Jake Ellenberger with an appropriate bang, sending the Welterweight veteran into retirement per Ellenberger’s post fight interview. Courtney Casey edged out a decision victory over Angela Hill who could not summon the abilities of Dhal Sim in their Strawweight fight. In the co-main event, Michael Johnson looked in good form shutting down Andre Fili in a Featherweight contest which went the distance. And with the main event we saw Justin Gaethje return to form by KOing James Vick with an overhand right next.




UFC events in September

September sees the UFC head around hosting three events in the month.

First the UFC travels to Dallas, TX to host UFC 228: Woodley vs Till. The main event is, as seen, a Welterweight championship tilt between reigning champion Tyron Woodley and Darren Till. THe night will also host a co-main event title bout between Nicco Montaño and Valentina Shevchenko for the UFC’s Women’s Flyweight championship. The rest of the card features Dagestani kickboxdancer Zabit Magomedsharipov taking on a late minute replacement in the form of Bryan Davis in a Featherweight showdown, Jessica Andrade fights against Karolina Kowalkiewicz in a strawweight scrap, and former strawweight champion Carla Esparza has shown up on the main card to face Tatiana Suarez. Additionally far down the card on the UFC Fight Pass preliminaries, Diego Sanchez fights Craig White in a welterweight bout.

Next the UFC travels to Russia for its first time to host UFC Fight Night: Hunt vs Oliynyk. The card is mostly filled with a lot of regionally appropriate fighters, but the main event of Mark Hunt taking on Oleksiy Oliynyk seems to offer a fun heavyweight tilt. The card also features Andrei Arlovski facing Shamil Abdurakhimov and
Jan Błachowicz vs. Nikita Krylov in a light heavyweight contest.

Following their travel to Russia, the UFC will then host UFC Fight Night: Manuwa vs Santos in São Paulo, Brazil. The main event is a LHW bout between Jimi Manuwa and Thiago Santos, as well as featuring Lil’ Nog taking on Sam Alvey. Evan Dunham, Renan Barão, Ben Saunders, Thales Leites, and Hector Lombard also will feature on the night’s card.

UFC News

Following a draw in boxing against fellow YouTuber KSI, Logan “Let’s Poke Dead Bodies In Japan As Well As Be Racist” Paul has expressed interest in fighting in the UFC due to his wrestling background (in which he won qualified for the 2013 state-level Ohio High School Athletic Association (OHSAA) Division I Wrestling Individual Championships). Sage Northcutt offered to take on the YouTube star in a bout for, well some reason. Following his, presumably trollish comment, UFC’s Mike Perry offered to help train Logan Paul at the famed Jackson-Winklejohn gym in New Mexico. Which coincidentally leads us into…

UFC Welterweight and loose cannon Donald Cerrone let off on a recent Joe Rogan Experience MMA Podcast that he is, in essence, leaving the famed camp due to it being treated more like a “puppy mill” by Winklejohn in Jackson’s absence. This, in turn, led to various other accusations such as caring only about money, pairing professional fighters at the UFC tier with random joe blows who’ve trained for a week at the gym but paid enough money. Winklejohn issued further remarks only targeting Cerrone’s lack of “loyalty” and not addressing the other accusations leveled against him. Perry & Cerrone will additionally be facing off at a UFC Fight Night in November.

And more recently, UFC have appeared to be eying a return for “The Prodigy” BJ Penn to take on fellow Jiu Jitsu ace Ryan Hall in a event towards the end of 2018. On a five fight losing streak, most people would prefer Penn to remain outside of the cage and offer to teach us how to surf instead. Oh well.

Your Current Champions

Men's Heavyweight Champion - Daniel Cormier (21-1-(1))
Starting his career as a Heavyweight, Daniel Cormier went 13 fights in the division undefeated. When he moved down to Light Heavyweight many thought he would never return to the division nor ever get the chance to become the UFC Heavyweight Champion due to his friendship with former Heavyweight Champion Cain Velasquez. That all changed when the opportunity for a superfight presented itself with Cormier stepping back into the Heavyweight ranks to take on the UFC’s longest reigning champion, Stipe Miocic at UFC 226. The stars aligned for Cormier, as well as getting a little bit of help from a few errant eye pokes, as he knocked out Miocic and become the UFC’s second person ever to hold two division titles at the same time. Following his win DC faced off a returning Brock Lesnar in a post fight trash talk session inside the cage and the two seem to be destined to fight. This will have to take place before Cormier’s previously announced retirement date of March 20, 2019. Lesnar will also be undergoing 6 months of USADA testing, which puts his earliest fight date at around January 2019, just a few weeks from Cormier’s intended retirement day.


Men's Light Heavyweight Champion - Daniel Cormier (21-1-(1))
Daniel Cormier won the belt initially in May of 2015 against the heavy-hitting Anthony Johnson by rear-naked choke in the third round. Cormier defended his belt against Alexander Gustafson 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 post-cycle therapy drugs. 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 rematch against Jon Jones finally took place at UFC 215 and saw Jones KO Cormier in the third round. Then Jones tested positive for Soviet-era steroids, and the CSAC overturned the fight result to a No Contest. The UFC dutifully stripped Jones of the championship, again, and it is now back around the waist of Cool MMA Dad Daniel Cormier. DC showed the world that there are indeed levels to this game, and defended easily against Volkan Oezdimir at UFC 220 in January. Then at UFC 226 Cormier cemented his legacy by knocking out UFC Heavyweight Champion Stipe Miocic to become the second ever person to hold two weight division belts at the same time. Cormier then proceeded to call out former UFC Heavyweight Champion and the WWE’s Universal Champion Brock Lesnar who was in the audience. The two exchanged words and a bit of shoving on Lesnars part and it is pretty clear this will be the next Heavyweight fight for Cormier provided Lesnar passes his 6 months of USADA testing.


Men's Middleweight Champion - Robert Whittaker (19-4)
Whittaker rode a seven-fight winning streak, including shutting down the deadly takedowns of Ronaldo "Jacare" Souza to slot himself into an Interim Middleweight championship match against Yoel "Soldier of God" Romero. The canny Australian showed incredible heart in taking it to the Cuban Olympic silver medalist over five rounds, and even with a severe knee injury coming in the first he managed to outpoint his opponent to take the unanimous decision. With Georges St-Pierre vacating the Middleweight championship in early December 2017, Whittaker has now been promoted to Undisputed Middleweight Champion. After a layoff to get his health back together, Whittaker took on Yoel Romero at UFC 225 in another great showdown between the two with Whittaker again taking the victory and continuing his reign as MW king. Currently Whittaker is nursing an arm injury and served as coach for The Ultimate Fighter 28 against his next opponent, Kelvin Gastellum.


Men's Welterweight Champion - Tyron Woodley (17-3-1)
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, with Woodley again the winner in a stilted affair. He defended the title again at UFC 214 in late July 2017 against Demian Maia, following a conservative but sharp gameplan that saw him stop all 22 of the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu ace's takedown attempts. It was announced that at UFC 228 on September 8th, 2018, Woodley will be facing off against England’s Darren Till.


Men's Lightweight Champion - Khabib Nurmagomedov (26-0)
Finally, it's Khabib Time. After going 16-0 in regional promotions in Russia and The Ukraine, Khabib signed a deal with the UFC in late 2011. He then went on a near-unprecedented tear in the promotion, racking up a 9-fight UFC winning streak, including setting the record for the most takedowns in a single UFC fight with 21 against Abel Trujillo. While he seemed to have some issues with his weight, coming in heavy a few times and pulling out of a bout, and had recurring issues with his knees, causing the cancellation of more than one fight, it seemed like only time would be the barrier betewen him and a Lightweight title shot. Finally in 2018, the fight was booke for UFC 223 against Tony Ferguson. The week of the fight it seemed that literally nothing could go right, and after Ferguson seriously injured his left knee at a press event, and the late replacement Max Holloway was pulled out with 36 hours to go via a NYSAC ruling that he "didn't look good" , finally it was settled that Al Iaquinta would be Nurmagomedov's victimopponent for the bout. Iaquinta weighed in at 155.2, over the championship limit, and as such was ineligible to win the title. That distinction ended up being purely academic, with Nurmagomedov turning in a 50-44, 50-43, 50-43 performance to finally wrap the belt around his waist. At the UFC 25th anniversary press conference, it was announced Conor McGregor would be Murmagomedov’s first opponent as champion and will take place at UFC 229.


Men's Featherweight Champion - Max Holloway (19-3)
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. At that event in early June 2017, he defeated Aldo in the third round with focused ground and pound, and unified the belts. Frankie Edgar was announced as Holloway's first defense, but with Edgar out with a broken face, the rematch with Jose Aldo Jr took place at UFC 218 in early December 2017. It was a carbon copy of the first match, with Aldo unable to weather the combinations of The Blessed One, this time being stopped in the third round. Holloway was again scheduled to defend against Frankie Edgar in March 2018, however a leg injury to the champion has forced that fight to the co-main with Brian Ortega stepping in. Travesty struck once again as Holloway had to pull out of UFC 226 with “concussion like symptoms.” An Ortega vs Holloway title fight is in the works now for UFC 231.


Men's Bantamweight Champion - TJ Dillashaw (18-3)
When he was announced as the coach on The Ultimate Fighter: Redemption against then-champion Cody Garbrandt, the outcome was planned to be a fight between the two for Garbrandt's Bantamweight championship. While the fight between the two was originally announced for July 8 2017 at UFC 213, Garbrandt dropped out with a back injury during May, and it was re-booked for UFC 217 in November. Dillashaw started a slight underdog, but got the job done in the second round with a solid right hook and follow up ground and pound. With his second title reign starting, Dillashaw's shut down Garbrandt again this time in one round. Following his win, Dillashaw accepted the challenge the newly crowned Henry Cujudo threw his way for a Champion vs Champion bout.


Men's Flyweight Champion - Henry Cejudo (13-2)
Two years is what it took for Henry Cejudo to claw his way back to a title shot against the man who gave him his first professional defeat. Over that two year span Cejudo changed his style of fighting up in various ways, and worked hard to show why he could and should be the man to dethrone the UFC’s longest reigning champion. Cejudo’s second fight against Demetrius Johnson did not go as many expected it to. Many assumed Cejudo would get outstruck by Johnson early, but The Messenger was able to take the champion to a decision utilizing his wrestling which some argued Cejudo used more to stall and less to offer offense. Regardless the judges gave the nod to former Olympian who quickly took his first moments as champion to call out the winner of the UFC Bantamweight fight. No opponent or date have been announced.


Women's Featherweight Champion - Cristiana Justino (20–1 (1))
With the vacating of this championship by Germaine de Randamie in May 2017, a match was set up for UFC 214 between Justino and Megan Anderson. Anderson pulled out of the fight in late June, and was replaced by current Invicta FC Bantamweight Champion Tonya Evinger. The significantly larger fighter on the day, Justino dominated a one-sided affair and won the fight in the third round with brutal knee strikes. Justino defended her championship against Holly Holm at UFC 219 in December 2017, again being the much larger fighter and keeping Holm at bay to take a comprehensive decision victory. Justino made her next defense against promotional newcomer Yana Kunitskaya in March 2018, flattening another promotional newcomer and Featherweight debutant in a very one-sided matchup. UFC announced Justino will in fact take on Amanda Nunes in the first ever Women’s Champion vs Champion superfight at UFC 232.


Women's Bantamweight Champion - Amanda Nunes (16-4)
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 was slated to take on Valentina Shevchenko in a rematch of their March 2016 fight, with that match being moved to UFC 215 in September 2017. Nunes retained by a razor-thin split decision. Her next fight was against Raquel Pennington at UFC 224, which was held this month in Rio de Janeiro. Nunes spent four rounds mauling Pennington, then pounded out a clearly already finished Pennington in the fifth, to retain her Championship. Nunes has been scheduled to move up to 145lbs to face Cyborg for the Featherweight championship at UFC 232.


Women's Flyweight Champion - Nicco Montaño (4-2)
After amassing a 5-0 record as an amateur, Nicco turned pro in late 2015. Going 3-2 before signing up to The Ultimate Fighter: A New World Champion, Nicco used her tenacity and solid striking game to garner three decision wins in a row on the reality show. Originally slated to face Sijara Eubanks at the TUF Finale, she ended up taking out a hard-fought decision victory over Goon favourite Roxanne Modaferri to become the first UFC Women's Flyweight champion. No defense is announced at this stage, but Valentina Shevchenko has been announced as the number 1 contender. Montaño was recently in a social media feud with Ariel Helwani over the latter's claims that she's ducking or scared of Shevchenko, with Montaño responding with the fact she had had tonsil and adenoid surgery and wasn’t able to train for a fight immediately. The Schevchenko fight has been announced to be taking place at UFC 228 in the Co-Main Event.


Women's Strawweight Champion - Rose Namajunas (11-3)
After cleaning out the Women's Strawweight division, Joanna Jędrzejczyk seemed to have no more mountains to conquer. After beating Michelle Waterson by rear-naked choke in April 2017, Namajunas was announced as the next contender for want of any other new challengers. In a massive upset, Namajunas beat Jędrzejczyk by TKO in the first round of their championship fight at UFC 217. A rematch for this fight took place at UFC 223 in April 2018, and while it took longer to decide the result was the same, with Namajunas taking a solid unanimous decision over the former champion. No title defense is scheduled at this stage.

When Till made his debut I pegged him as a future star, but he didn't remain as exciting as he seemed at his debut when he lobotomized a Brazillian in Brazil, and then got the crowd on his side by talking them up in Portuguese. His only stoppage since then is against a lightweight, and in hindsight it seems as if Cerrone is well post-peak.

Like he has been winning, but... bleh. Honestly the most interesting way for this card to unfold will be if Till misses weight and Usman's "I'm training to fight Tyron and weighing in" causes drama. Plus Woodley should have no trouble decapitating Usman in the first round.

I put Darren Till in the same vein as Dan Hardy in a Brit on a win streak but no way do I think they will win and if they do it's just more sign of the ongoing decline. At least Dan Hardy was in there with GSP, which is the whole thing really - GSP thought no chancers but he was GSP and he was so clearly better in ways that were dominant, same with Anderson... Tyron just fights the most safe style to win and you never look at him and go "that right there, thats a champion" when hes against no hopers. Its why I enjoyed Mouse so much, he was in there against no hopers but gently caress he made sure to show why they had no hope.
