St Pierre Retains Title at UFC 167, Future Uncertain for Champ
Huffington Post Sports - over 3 years
It had all the makings of a fairytale ending to one of the most storied careers in UFC history; welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre would defend his belt for the ninth time at UFC 167 to become the promotion's all-time winningest fighter, and walk away from the octagon after nearly a decade. But even before St-Pierre took the microphone from commentator Joe Rogan during a post-fight interview, the perfect scenario to retire at the height of his success had already passed, as the validity of his split-decision win over Johny Hendricks was immediately questioned. Still, the champion addressed the MGM Grand Garden Arena crowd amid a deafening mixture of boos and cheers. "I have a bunch of stuff in my life happening, I need to hang up my gloves for a little bit," stated St-Pierre. "I have to go away for a little bit at least ... I have to step away for a bit, and that's all I can say right now." Refusing to call it a retirement, St-Pierre created an instant shockwave of speculatio ...

UFC 167 Recap: Was George St-Pierre's 'Retirement' Staged?
Huffington Post Sports - over 3 years
UFC 167 aired live last night from the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. The night marked the 20th anniversary of the first UFC event on November 13, 1993. I remember watching that tournament (and the next five or so) with my dad in our living room. I was 13 years old at the time, and in the 8th grade. It was amazing to see Royce Gracie, Ken Shamrock, and all the original fighters match their skills against each other in a mixed martial arts tournament. Watching UFC 167 last night with Joon and the roommates, we reminisced about the evolution of the sport, its current state, and the future. The Undercard Fights I didn't bother with the Fox 1 prelims -- I only jumped in to watch the main card. The round of the night easily goes to Josh Koscheck's humiliating loss to Tyrone Woodley in the first round. Koscheck (who, himself is a great boxer and wrestler) was getting rocked early on. He kept going in and backing out. The first time he did it, Woodley connected with a right hook and cut open Kosch ...

Dan Shapiro: World Series of Fighting Goes for Silver, UFC 161 Hits Winnipeg
Huffington Post Sports - over 3 years
In 2007, Zuffa LLC., the parent company of the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC), purchased their top rival, Japan's storied PRIDE Fighting Championships, forever altering the face of worldwide mixed martial arts (MMA). PRIDE, which gave rise to the careers of legendary fighters like Wanderlei Silva, Fedor Emelianenko, and Mauricio "Shogun" Rua, carried MMA through its darkest years, during the John McCain-led Congressional witch hunt that ripped the Las Vegas promotion from U.S. airwaves, creating a competitive duopoly with the UFC. Zuffa's acquisition of PRIDE created a whole new set of dramatic story lines for the fight world, culminating in Quinton "Rampage" Jackson unifying the promotional belts with a technical knockout victory over Chuck Liddell at UFC 71. And after similar buyouts of World Extreme Cagefighting (WEC) and Strikeforce, the UFC not only firmly established is place as the world's top organization, but also created a vacancy for a new company to take ...

Dan Shapiro: Breaking Down UFC 160
Huffington Post Sports - almost 4 years
The Ultimate Fighting Championship heavyweight title is up for grabs this Saturday at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, and in addition to vying for the distinction of "world's baddest man," challenger Antonio "Big Foot" Silva will be fighting to ensure the lasting relevance of the promotion's marquee division when he enters the octagon to face champion Cain Velasquez in the UFC 160 main event. While the UFC has seen an increase in events in 2013, adding network broadcasts to their stable of Pay Per View fight cards, the promotion has staggered of late, as a lack of viable competition in the welterweight, middleweight, and light heavyweight classes, for longtime titleholders Georges St. Pierre, Anderson Silva, and Jon Jones, has the world's number one MMA organization scrambling for new blood atop its ranks. There is fear that the heavyweight division will soon fall prey to a similar monotony under the rule of current strap holder Velasquez, adding significance the May 25 head ...

Dana White Believes Wanderlei Silva's Legendary Career Is Coming to an End
Bleacher Report - over 4 years
UFC President Dana White plans to communicate with Wanderlei Silva after the Brazilian’s gutsy loss to Rich Franklin during the main event of UFC 147. The PRIDE and UFC striker wants to continue fighting, but it may be time for the UFC brass to step in and force him into retirement. Silva, a professional MMA fighter since 1996, has been involved in complete slugfests throughout his career. After entering the UFC, however, he only found moderate success, and has lost four his last six fights in the UFC cage. The 35-year-old is a former PRIDE middleweight champion, and was involved in epic battles with the likes of Quinton “Rampage” Jackson, Ricardo Arona, and Mirko Filipovic during his PRIDE career. Here is what White recently told MMAjunkie.com: “Wanderlei is a guy, yeah, I want to talk to. He looked good in that fight He almost won, and it’s not like he got knocked out. And Rich Franklin can crack (guys). He just knocked Chuck (Liddell) out. I don't think fighting wise. I t ...

Roland Delorme Steps in for Johnny Bedford at UFC on FOX 3
Opposing Views - almost 5 years
MMAFighting reports that Johnny Bedford will have to wait a little while longer to make his second UFC appearance, as an injury has forced him out of a planned UFC On FOX 3 tilt against Nick Denis. Bedford (18-9-1) made his UFC debut at The Ultimate Fighter 14 Finale last December, defeating TUF 14 castmate Louis Gaudinot via TKO. He hasn't appeared since due to opponent visa issues and, now, injury. Bedford will be replaced by another TUF 14 alum in Roland Delorme (7-1), who also picked up his most recent win at the TUF 14 Finale. The 28-year-old Canadian submitted Josh Ferguson with a rear naked choke at the event. Nick Denis (11-2) made his UFC debut this past January at UFC on FX: Guillard vs. Miller, knocking out Joseph Sandoval in twenty-two seconds to take home the Knockout of the Night bonus. The bout will take place in the bantamweight division. UFC on FOX 3: Diaz vs. Miller is scheduled for May 5 at the IZOD Cent ...

MMA Video: Rashad Evans Prepares for UFC 145
Opposing Views - almost 5 years
We're only days away from one of the UFC's biggest main events ever, the light heavyweight title fight/grudge match between champion Jon Jones and Rashad Evans. Evans is listed as a massive underdog against Jones, with some books having the champ as much as a 6-to-1 favorite. That added to their long-simmering, much-hyped feud would be enough for most people -– even top-tier combat sports athletes -- to start feeling the pressure. For Evans, as he says in the "Georgia on my Mind" video below (courtesy Authentic Sports Management), the pressure isn't eclipsing the fact that he's living his dream. Check out the clip to see Suga train, get in some fine-tuning with Roy Jones Jr., and give some insight into his mindset ahead of the biggest fight of his career.

Elliot Worsell: If Anyone Can, Rashad Evans Can Beat 'Unstoppable' Jones
Huffington Post Sports - almost 5 years
For the sake of the entire light-heavyweight division, I sincerely hope 'Suga' Rashad Evans is able to, at the very least, show a way of one day solving the Rubik's Cube that is current UFC 205 lb champion Jon 'Bones' Jones this coming Saturday (April 21) at UFC 145. He doesn't even have to necessarily beat him -- he just has to prove it can be done... one day... someday. Because, as it stands right now, that task seems a step too far for just about everybody in the division and, truthfully, Evans remains perhaps their only hope of overthrowing a man regarded as the most dominant and devastating champion in the sport. By my way of thinking, should Evans fail on Saturday night, there will be just two further, immediate challengers equipped to offer any kind of threat to Jones' reign. Veteran Dan Henderson and prospect Alexander Gustafsson. Opposite ends of their mixed martial arts journey, perhaps, but both would, at some point, shout for a shot if Evans falls short thi ...

Chuck Liddell: Fighting a Teammate Is Nothing Personal
Bleacher Report - almost 5 years
Chuck Liddell has been involved in his fair share of rivalries. The former UFC light heavyweight champion had some grudge matches during his reign over the 205-pound division, including a title defense against former training partner Tito Ortiz. Their rivalry went on to break pay-per-view records and cement Liddell's legacy as one of the greatest UFC champions of all-time.  Jon Jones and Rashad Evans, who are set to meet this weekend at UFC 145, have drawn similar comparisons to Liddell and Ortiz's rivalry. While appearing on "The MMA Hour" earlier this week, Liddell was asked to break down the upcoming title bout. "What's interesting about this fight is that the (betting) line is 6-to-1, which is shocking to me, because I don't think it's that kind of fight," Liddell said. "Even if it was a long time ago, if Rashad was getting the better of him in (training) ... sometimes that's in the back of your head when you go into a fight. Even if you're a different fighter now and you've ...

  • 2006

It was announced during UFC 61 that, if he were to defeat Sobral, Liddell would face off against PRIDE Middleweight Champion Wanderlei Silva. The fight failed to materialize due to the competing promotions' inability to reach an agreement. UFC president Dana White attributed this to Silva's subsequent knockout loss to Mirko Filipović.

Throughout the bout, Liddell dominated with aggressive punches, causing knockdowns in several rounds. Liddell's defensive wrestling ability, especially his sprawl, stifled the bulk of Horn's offense, which was centered on grappling and submission wrestling. Liddell eventually won the fight via TKO in 2:46 minutes of the fourth round after Horn informed the referee that he could not see. He had been hit with a right punch to the eye causing him to bleed from his eye as well as his nose.

In the next round Liddell was eliminated by fan-favorite Quinton "Rampage" Jackson, The first round Liddell was landing shots as he found his distance but Jackson countered with powerful strikes rocking Liddell numerous times.
