Aleksandar Rakic Extends Contract with UFC

After considerable deliberation regarding the future of Aleksandar Rakic, it was announced that the light heavyweight fighter would remain with the Ultimate Fighter’s Championship. This follows after prolonged discussions regarding his new contract, which is listed for an additional six-fights with this announcement. It marks the 3rd contract that the 28-year-old Austrian has completed with the UFC. Dana White and UFC Representatives haven’t revealed details regarding who he’ll be fighting for those six bouts.

UFC Experts believed that Aleksandar Rakic wouldn’t acquire another contract with the UFC, which would’ve followed after his first defeat in December 2019 at Busan. It was a split decision loss made by the judges, with supporters of Aleksandar Rakic expressing their disbelief. Most believed he’d won two of the three rounds, with this man dominating over his competition since September 2017. His record stands at four consecutive victories. Those included Justin Ledet, Jimi Manuwa, Francimar Barroso, and Devin Clark. He’s listed at the 10th highest-ranked fighter in the UFC, leaving supporters to wonder what UFC Experts are missing in their assessments.

Dustin Poirier Shutdown from Diaz Fight

Supporters behind the Light Heavyweight Division have also been looking forward to another competitor getting his next opportunity. This follows after Dustin Poirier from the Lightweight Division has rallied supporters of the UFC to demand a fight against Nate Diaz. Dustin had campaigned for this fight for a prolonged period, which started at UFC 230 when the two opponents had their matches cancelled. This cancellation is rumoured to centre around Nate Diaz, who wasn’t prepared to take on this champion fighter. Dustin has taken every avenue possible to trigger Diaz and have him return to the UFC, even verbally assaulting his younger brother.

Dustin Poirier has been told to abandon this quest, with Nate Diaz having no intentions of fighting again moving forward. This has led countless UFC Supporters and Experts to claim that Nate Diaz doesn’t have the bravery required to compete in the octagon. This would follow after he’d been knocked down in two consecutive competitions, with analysts expecting he’d lose against Dustin Poirier as well. Three knockouts back-to-back and your career is immediately over. Dustin Poirier offered to combat Nate Diaz in the octagon throughout any weight class, even providing the former champion with his favourite of 165lbs. Nate Diaz denied this potential fight, which saw Poirier respond with a boxing match. All possible versions of the two competing were turned down. Most believe that the days of Destructive Diaz is long over.

Derrick Lewis Facing Severe Medical Condition

Shocking news regarding one of the fighters at UFC 247 has been unveiled. Derrick Lewis confirmed that he’s been battling a severe health issue, which was relevant during his fight against Ilir Latifi. Supporters of the “The Black Beast” went to social media to provide their praise towards Derrick Lewis, expressing that his strength is formidable. Having the capability to fight when facing a severe medical issue, only to then win the respective battle is impressive. The last two victorious fights for Derick Lewis, which were back-to-back, saw him facing this unnamed condition.

Reporters interviewed Derrick Lewis after he confirmed the illness via Twitter, asking if he’ll remain a headline fighter going forward. The Black Beast mentioned that he wouldn’t be retiring from the Ultimate Fighting Championship but will undergo multiple visitations with professional doctors. This will ensure that training won’t be depleted for Lewis, with the UFC demanding that those visitations be kept private for security concerns. This confirmation interview noted that medical professionals with the UFC have learned what the condition is and what must be done to solve the particular issue. Unfortunately, it’s a life-or-death medical issue that is severely challenging to overcome. If doctors are unable to provide recovery for Derick Lewis, he will die in a few short years.

The Black Beast mentioned that multiple athletes have suffered and passed away from this condition, which leads sporting analysts to believe that Lewis has amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. This disease can formulate regardless of your health and can kill an athlete within a short period. Derrick Lewis fighting shouldn’t be advised by any of the UFC doctors, showing a blatant lack of respect for athletes in the Ultimate Fighting Champion. Dana White has often been questioned on why fighters are brought to near-death for money. Individuals that support Derick Lewis have begun to send their wishes and blessings for his recovery. Losing the Black Beast would be one of the most upsetting and notable deaths in fighting for the last two decades.

Another Incident for Another Fighter

Derrick Lewis wasn’t the only individual that required medical assistance this week. BJ Penn was confirmed to be in a substantial automotive accident last week in Hawaii, which prompted his vehicle to roll over multiple times before coming to a halt. When law enforcement arrived on the scene, he was immediately transported via helicopter to the Hilo Medical Centre. Law enforcement believes that alcohol was relevant to his accident, with blood tests being administered at the medical facility. This could mark the second DUI for BJ Penn, which would place him immediately into jail.

Joe Rogan Defends Tony Ferguson

Joe Rogan Defends Tony Ferguson

There are multiple individuals connected to the UFC that believe Dana White is writing off Tony Ferguson. The UFC President has expressed his desire to see a rematch between Conor McGregor and Khabib Nurmagomedov, with the middle eastern champion himself declining this matchup publicly. The latest individual to believe this fight isn’t going to happen is Joe Rogan, one of the most infamous figures in UFC. Rogan believes that Tony Ferguson has the skillsets required to dominate over Khabib, which would make him the 1st individual to dominate over Nurmagomedov. It should be noted that Tony Ferguson stands as the Number 1 Ranked athlete in the Ultimate Fighters Championship. Nobody can deny that “El Cucuy” will be the hardest challenge for “The Eagle” yet.

Rogan Speaks Up

Joe Rogan spoke to loyalist with the Ultimate Fighters Championship under his podcast. Statements regarding that Tony Ferguson is the boogeyman of the UFC couldn’t be more accurate. El Cucuy is secretly terrifying and has been underestimated by all opponents. This man never gets tired in the octagon, regardless of the beatings ensuing. Anybody that has fought Tony Ferguson previously have been hospitalized immediately afterwards. Some individuals call this champion “The Freight Train” because that’s exactly how all his opponents look after being defeated. It should also be noted that Tony Ferguson has the most enormous hands in the UFC, with a significant reach over most competitors. This gives him substantial advantages over opponents and will be challenging for Khabib to overcome.

Rogan mentioned that Tony Ferguson is the most terrifying fighter he’s come across, that everything about his mental and physical warfare isn’t healthy. Eccentric behaviour dominates over his persona in the ring, forcing opponents to make continuous mistakes. Joe noted that this fight will be an epic pay-per-view, but that Dana White shouldn’t immediately set up another bout with Khabib. There’s a substantial chance that Ferguson will win and potentially compete against the Irishman. However, neither the Irishman nor El Cucuy has bad blood between each other. Getting the title shot immediately after beating Donald Cerrone would also be a cop-out from Dana White. McGregor wouldn’t rightfully deserve Ferguson’s championship belt until beating everyone in his desired weight class.

The PPV

Those wanting to witness the incredible battle between Tony Ferguson and Khabib Nurmagomedov can watch the two fighters collide at UFC 249. This pay-per-view is slated for April 18th, 2020 and will be located in Brooklyn. It’ll be five rounds at the Barclays Center, with each round being five minutes. It’s expected that Khabib Nurmagomedov will win this battle, with Joe Rogan believing that Tony Ferguson will come out on top. We’d have to agree with that analytic determination.

UFC 246 Doctor Receiving Backlash

It’s been two weeks since the fast-paced actions of UFC 246 unfolded in Las Vegas. However, there are still concerns relating to certain fights that took place. This applies to the Maycee Barber and Roxanne Modafferi matchup, which saw Barber take a significant injury to her right knee. It allowed her opponent to thrive after doctors displayed her problems in the Octagon. Maycee Barber believes that her defence capabilities would’ve been better if it weren’t for this doctor. Bookies were anticipating for Barber to win his matchup against Roxanne Modafferi. This is why Maycee Barber is demanding a rematch anywhere at any time. It’ll take upwards of twelve to fifteen months for this fight to become a reality, with Maycee Barber facing substantial recovery time.

This young woman spoke with reporters after her father had been hacked via Twitter. Respective comments relating to Maycee Barber were made, leading everyone to know that this was a genuine hacked account. Bucky Barber was disgusted by the actions taken against upset fans, with thousands losing their significant to small scale wagers on Maycee Barber. She expressed that all efforts were made to disguise the injury to doctors. Unfortunately, video evidence noticed by Joe Rogan showed that Maycee had her knee split backwards.

Doctors were immediately brought in following the 1-Minute Break Period. This doctor made it evident that she was dealing with a significant injury, making it harder for Barber to concentrate the next round. Concentration was the main factor that resulted in Maycee failing in this fight, with Roxanne Modafferi purposely avoiding her opponents right-knee. It was one of those few moments where two female fighters showed genuine sportsmanship. This unnamed doctor has received substantial backlash for his actions, with Dana White confirming that his individual won’t be allowed back to the Octagon.

Roxanne Modafferi

There’s another side to this story, with Roxanne Modafferi being praised for her actions in the Octagon. Roxanne could’ve easily attacked the right-knee of Maycee Barber, which would’ve allowed her to win the 3rd round. Roxanne approached groundwork against Maycee Barber, which would’ve allowed the right-knee to take less damage. All actions displayed by Modafferi showed mutual respect. Roxanne even assisted Barber to her feet after the bout.

Khabib Nurmagomedov wants Floyd Mayweather Jr Fight

Khabib Nurmagomedov wants Floyd Mayweather Jr Fight

UFC champ Khabib Nurmagomedov and his team have begun to prepare for the upcoming title fight in the lightweight division against Tony Ferguson. However, thereafter, all energies will be directed to preparing for a fight against Floyd Mayweather Jr, the undefeated boxing champ who took on Connor McGregor and walked away with another win to his record.
It is expected that Khabib Nurmagomedov will enter the ring against Mayweather JR for an 11 round fight using standard boxing rules and one round using standard MMA rules. To date, Floyd Mayweather Jr, or as many call him, “Mr Money” has yet to lose a professional fight in his career. It is a feat not many can lay claim to, and at 42 few others have the ability to enter the ring still and perform at the levels required to be competitive, let alone win fights.

Khabib Nurmagomedov, also undefeated in his MMA career is expected to give Mayweather JR a healthy dose of completion. However, Mayweather is superior in the ring and understands how to go the distance. That was a skill that was lacking in Connor McGregor, and Nurmagomedov will most likely feel the challenges of others who have come before him and may very lose the fight as a result, much like McGregor did.

While speaking on his upcoming fight against Ferguson, Khabib Nurmagomedov addressed questions relating to his desire to fight Mayweather. Commenting, Nurmagomedov stated, “Mayweather has statistics on fights of 50 wins and zero losses, he is the greatest in boxing. He wants to fight with the same champion who did not lose a single fight, Khabib, everything is fine, but now we have Tony Ferguson on the line. We said a long time ago: let us finish with Tony, after that we will work with the team of Ukrainian boxer Vasily Lomachenko for six months, then there will be a boxing fight. We offer any day anywhere, with only one condition – 11 rounds in boxing and one in mixed martial arts.”

If Khabib Nurmagomedov is successful against Ferguson, he will improve his MMA professional record to 29-0, which while impressive, pales in comparison to Mayweather’s 50-0 record. While Mayweather is officially retired, he had agreed to fight the Nurmagomedov, a bout that was cancelled by Dana White, however, the fight is still being discussed with White after Mayweather announced he would come out of retirement to fight in the octagon.
