Pic! Harris, Spitz Suffer Broken Bones In UFC Utica Clash

Bones were broken last night (Fri., June 1, 2018) at UFC Fight Night 131 from inside Adirondack Bank Center in Utica, N.Y., as heavyweight knockout artist Walt Harris injured his foot in a second-round TKO win over Daniel Spitz, who walked away with a broken arm.

Harris, who captured his fourth UFC finish in as many wins, had to be taken to the hospital following the victory due to an apparent broken foot sustained in the first round. He took to Instagram to showcase his ambulance ride and thank is supportive fans.

“We got it done baby! 2nd round KO! Bad news is I think I broke my foot in the first round! Thanks you all for your love and support it means the world to me!” wrote Harris.

Spitz, 27, was finished for the first time in his mixed martial arts (MMA) career. But considering “Daddy Long Legs” broke his arm in the first 30 seconds of the fight, his performance commands a little more respect. Spitz provided X-ray proof of his injury in a post-fight Instagram post.

“First, I’d like to give respect to my opponent @thebigticket205. You were the better man tonight. I broke my arm in the first 30 seconds of the fight and I’m disappointed with the outcome, but grateful for the opportunity. Thank you to everyone that helped me along the way with this camp,” wrote Spitz.

I guess heavyweights really do hit hard.

Manager: There’s A 95-Percent Chance ‘Bones’ Fights In 2018 If…

Could Jon Jones return to the Octagon in 2018?

According to his manager, Malki Kawa, the chances of the former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Light Heavyweight champion fighting again inside the Octagon in 2018 are looking very good. In fact, the confident agent says there is a 95-percent chance “Bones” fights this year.

That is, of course, if United States Anti Doping Agency (USADA) does the right thing and take everything they’ve gathered so far and realize that everything points to Jon telling the truth of never intentionally taking any banned substance.

Malki broke it all down during a recent interview on the Luke Thomas Show.

“By the end of this month I think we get some clarity on the issues. We have a hearing with the California State Athletic Commission and we’re hoping to get the investigation with USADA wrapped up by then, as well,” revealed Kawa.

“Hopefully it all works out that way. I got to assume that by the end of March, for a fact, we will get this resolved and get an idea of what it’s looking like. I’d like to say about a 95-percent chance (he fights in 2018).”

USADA busted Jones pissing hot following his championship win over Daniel Cormier at UFC 214, which ultimately lead to another suspension and “DC” getting crowned light heavyweight champion again.

“If USADA is a respectable organization, which I think that they are, and they take all the information they compiled, all the interviews that they’ve done and all the things they’ve seen, they know for a fact that Jon Jones was not cheating and he was not intentionally taking any kind of substance. I think they know that and everybody can come to that conclusion based on the circumstances of his situation. That’s the most I am going to say at this point because it is obviously on-going.”

Furthermore, Kawa pointed to Jon’s willingness to take a polygraph test on his own — which he passed — as further prove that “Bones” is an innocent man who is trying his hardest to prove his case.

Nevertheless, it will be an interesting few weeks waiting to see if in fact everything comes out roses for Team Jones. If it does, his presence will without a doubt shake up the 205-pound weight class once again, and talks of a trilogy fight against Daniel Cormier will surely ramp up.

After “DC” takes care of this business, of course.

The featherweight who just broke four bones in his face isn’t mad at UFC 215 referee

While most mixed martial arts (MMA) fans are talking about the damage incurred by Gilbert Melendez, who had his leg turned into corned beef hash by featherweight bruiser Jeremy Stephens at UFC 215 (see it), there was another 145-pound slugger who may have had it even worse.

Gavin Tucker.

“Guv’Nor” was battered and beaten across three rounds by opponent Rick Glenn, a shellacking that got so bad, promotion president Dana White called upon the combat sports universe for a backstage blanket party.

The referee in charge of fighter safety was Kyle Cardinal.

One person who isn’t ready to condemn Cardinal is Tucker, praising the longtime man in black for letting the fight continue so that “Guv’Nor” could Just Bleed Bang Bro go out on his shield, because fuck CTE, this is cage fighting!

From his official Facebook account:

“In victory say little. In defeat ….less.ill keep it short and sweet. i lost on Saturday. stop blaming the ref for a bad call. that man let me go out on my shield. he visited while i was in the hospital and apologized. was him and i in that cage. I didnt stop fighting. he saw that. he should sleep easy.I have four broken bones in my face. the first which started on the jaw in rd 1 and the fight went down for me from there. i have 2 fractured orbital and another vertical fracture in the jaw according to the x ray/CT scan. the heartbreak of losing hurts much worse. throughout the day i wiped alot of blood off my cheek and i can’t say for sure there weren’t some tears in there. I fought w blurred vision and 3 different Rick Glenns kicked the fuck out of me for the last two rds. (i tried to hit the one in the middle) congrats to my opponent. i hope you go far because i plan on seeing you again.I fought my heart out. I’m a rare breed of straight savage and i don’t need social media to tell me that. however…i am appreciative of all the support i received on here. which is why I’m writing this. I have no excuses and won’t stand for anyone making them for me. that’s not how the north folk get it done.I have a great Family. a great team. and the greatest women. ill be twice the man for this.thats it….. Tucker 2.0 is on the way”

The length of his mandatory medical suspension has yet to be determined.

The loss at UFC 215, which took place on the FOX Sports 1 “Prelims” portion of the televised fight card inside Rogers Place in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, was the first of his professional career.

Snoop Dogg says ‘Skinny Bones’ Jones is the ‘baddest mother f —ker in UFC,’ will walk him out for Daniel Cormier ass-kicking

Snoop Dogg recently took the time to cut this hilarious promo for Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) and Daniel Cormier, highlighting “DC’s” run inside the Octagon ahead of UFC 210, which went down last weekend (Sat. April 8, 2017) in Buffalo, New York.

But at the end of the day, the longtime rapper is good friends with Jon Jones, and he has his back.

So it comes as no surprise that Snoop wasn’t too impressed with Cormier’s digs and comments toward “Skinny Bones” during his post-fight speech after choking out Anthony Johnson. In fact, the musical legend wants to accompany Jones out to the Octagon when the time comes for Jones to rematch Cormier.

“He’s talking plenty of shit. Skinny Bones is going to kick your motherfucking ass. Hey, when Jones get back, I’m walking out with cuz. Believe that, talking that shit, Skinny Bones Jones.”

Snoop and Jones have formed a bond over the years, with “Bones” even teaching the his new comrade some “spinning shit.”

As for the fight itself, that is far from confirmed at the moment, as Jones still has three months left to serve on his one-year suspension which will be up in July. But, once the time is served, Snoop is confident Jones will get his title back, as well as label as “baddest motherfucker to ever walk in the Octagon.”
