HIGHLIGHTING HEADLINES IN MMA (AUGUST 20, 2017)

12-fight UFC veteran Sam Sicilia latest to Signal multi-fight Bellator contract

Good on him! Dropping a unanimous decision to promotional newcomer Gavin Tucker at UFC Fight Night 105 back in October, Sicilia fell to some three-fight losing skid in the UFC and obtained his pink slip from the advertising. I like that he’s found a new home with Bellator, and an equally good or better cash back. Win or lose, the Washington native always shows up to fight and looks for the end. Congratulations to Sammy Dubs for his new contract, and best of luck on his new chapter.
Frank Mir agrees to deal with Bellator MMA
Nice! The UFC did the right thing and released Mir out of his contract, which allowed Bellator to sweep him up. My guess is that they guaranteed him a matchup from Fedor Emalianenko, which made him choose Bellator over competing promotions. I like this move by Mir and anticipate seeing him within the Bellator cage. The Fedor matchup will certainly be an intriguing one.

Dillashaw: Mighty Mouse was’consolation prize’
TJ Dillashaw is now set to confront UFC bantamweight champion Cody Garbrandt at UFC 217 in nyc on November 4th, and the most important reason this title fight is now happening is because UFC flyweight champion Demetrious”Mighty Mouse” Johnson refused to defend his title against Dillashaw when Garbrandt was forced out of the UFC 209 contest due to injury. The Duane Ludwig-trained fighter knows that Johnson was not confident in himself to accept the challenge. Talking to MMA Junkie Radio, Dillashaw said that the Gabrandt fight is exactly what he wanted all along and the Johnson matchup was only a backup plan. He knows that’s not a good fight for him and wouldn’t take it,” Dillashaw explained. “He’s real worried about the document he wants to break. Go on and let him do that, I guess.”
White: Ferguson, Lee to struggle for interim lightweight title Alright, now we are talking! Early common consensus is that Ferguson is going to handily defeat Lee, but personally, I’m not so confident. Lee has been very impressive as of late, and I enjoy seeing his growth within the Octagon. This is a matchup I’m excited about visiting, and win or lose, I hope Lee does not suffer any injuries so he cane make a fast turnaround for December’s UFC 218 in his native Detroit, that will be just two weeks following the Ferguson bout.

No, Diego, Nooooo!!!!! Say it isn’t so! Just call it stops, my dude. Hang them up gloves. It’s time. You don’t have to be jumping back around 170 pounds when you were recently analyzing the waters at 145. Don’t stick around for your money, person, the brain damage will not be worth it.
