HIGHLIGHTING HEADLINES IN MMA (AUGUST 20, 2017)

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

Good ! Dropping a unanimous choice to promotional novice Gavin Tucker in UFC Fight Night 105 back in October, Sicilia dropped to some three-fight losing skid in the UFC and obtained his pink slip from the advertising. I like he’s found a new house using Bellator, and an equally good or even better cash back. Win or lose, the Washington native constantly shows up to fight and looks for the finish. Congratulations to Sammy Dubs because of his new contract, and best of luck on his new chapter.
Frank Mir agrees to deal with Bellator MMA
Nice! The UFC did exactly the ideal thing and published Mir from his contract, which allowed Bellator to sweep up him. My guess is that they guaranteed him a matchup from Fedor Emalianenko, which made him choose Bellator over rival promotions. I like this move by Mir and look forward to seeing him within the Bellator cage. The Fedor matchup will surely be an intriguing one.

Dillashaw: Mighty Mouse has been’consolation prize’
TJ Dillashaw is now set to face UFC bantamweight champion Cody Garbrandt in UFC 217 in nyc on November 4th, and the most important reason this title fight is presently happening is since UFC flyweight champion Demetrious”Mighty Mouse” Johnson refused to defend his title against Dillashaw if Garbrandt was forced out of the UFC 209 contest because of injury. The Duane Ludwig-trained fighter understands that Johnson was not confident in himself to accept the challenge. Talking to MMA Junkie Radio, Dillashaw explained that the Gabrandt struggle is exactly what he wanted all along and that the Johnson matchup was just a backup plan. He knows that is not a good fight for him wouldn’t take it,” Dillashaw said. “He is real worried about the document that he needs to break. Go on and let him do this, I figure.”
White: Ferguson, Lee to fight for interim lightweight title Alright, now we’re talking! Early popular consensus is that Ferguson will handily defeat Lee, but personally, I’m not so confident. Lee has been quite impressive as of late, and I enjoy seeing his growth within the Octagon. That is a matchup I am excited about seeing, and win or lose, I hope Lee does not suffer any mishaps he cane make a fast turnaround for December’s UFC 218 in his native Detroit, which is just two months 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 do not have to be jumping back around 170 pounds when you were lately testing the waters at 145. Don’t stick around for your money, person, the brain damage will not be well worth it.
