Dana White ‘Would Love to See’ Adesanya Fight Jon Jones

Adesanya wasn’t taking questions about Jon Jones last night, but the UFC president was

Israel Adesanya won the UFC interim middleweight belt last night at UFC 236 in a historic Fight of the Year candidate with Kelvin Gastelum (watch the highlights!). The flashy striker has proven he has endless heart. Afterwards, Adesanya brushed away questions about Jon Jones, saying “This is about me. None of that. This is about me and Kelvin. I’ll address that another time.”

UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones didn’t seem to like not being the center of attention. In quick succession this morning, he tweeted,

Just waking up to the morning news, this is about you now bitch

Everybody else [hang loose emoji] Have the best day today

This wasn’t the first shade Jones has thrown Adesanya’s way. He had posted about the Nigerian-born New Zealander before the bout, responding to Israel’s assertions that Jones is smart enough to worry about him. After the fight, he was critical of Israel’s performance, retweeting someone else’s analysis that Israel is not ready for Jones yet.

Well said, my man had a toe to toe kick boxing match with a short stubby wrestler. There’s only one Jon Jones ladies and gentlemen

When someone pointed out this was also a criticism of Gastelum’s abilities, Jones said that he was impressed Gastelum almost beat Adesanya without throwing a single kick. (The only sequence in the fight where Kelvin visibly rocked Israel started with Gastelum’s head kick)

That wasn’t my intention, nothing but respect for Kelvin. Dude Almost beat a kickboxer without throwing a single kick

Jones then woke up in the morning and apparently saw Israel dismissing the question about him. It isn’t clear what ‘This is about you now bitch’ means in this context. Jones isn’t about to drop to middleweight, and Adesanya has a massive title unification bout ahead of him against the great Robert Whittaker. Still, if the Last Stylebender does get past Whittaker, Dana White said he would be interested in seeing a superfight between the two 6’4” phenoms. Via MMAJunkie.com:

“(Adesanya has) got Whittaker to look forward to now,” White said. “Whittaker is a bad dude. He’s bigger than Kelvin, he hits harder than Kelvin, and he needs to focus on him right now.

“I know him and Jon Jones have been talking some smack, and listen, if he wins, and he becomes the middleweight champion, obviously I’d love to see him and Jon Jones fight. But we’ll see how everything plays out and timing. Because the other thing is if Israel fights Whittaker and wins, there’s other guys that have been waiting in line, too, to fight for the title. If (Ronald) ‘Jacare’ (Souza) keeps winning and doesn’t get a title fight, that guy might kill me.

“But that Jon Jones fight is going to be out there for Israel no matter what. That ain’t going anywhere.”

The undefeated Adesanya walks around considerably lighter than Jones, and we saw in the main event last night how a power disparity can affect a fight. The difference in size was the main problem MMA Mania analyst Andrew Richardson brought up when I posed Adesanya as a potential future opponent for Jones.

Still, the possibility remains, and we will no doubt hear more about it in the days ahead.

Predictions! UFC 236 Fight Pass ‘Prelims’ Preview

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is bringing a bevy of “Prelims” fights to both UFC Fight Pass and ESPN this weekend (Sat., April 13, 2019) when UFC 236: “Holloway vs. Poirier 2” storms State Farm Arena in Atlanta, Georgia. MMAmania.com’s Patrick Stumberg kicks off the UFC 236 “Prelims” party with the first installment of a two-part undercard preview series below.

A rematch seven years in the making helms the latest Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) pay-per-view (PPV) offering this Saturday (April 13, 2019) inside State Farm Arena in Atlanta, Ga., as Featherweight champ Max Holloway dukes it out with Dustin Poirier for the interim Lightweight title. Thirty pounds north, The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) winner Kelvin Gastelum faces unbeaten phenom Israel Adesanya for the interim Middleweight strap, while knockout artists Eryk Anders and Khalil Rountree Jr. duke it out at Light Heavyweight.

UFC 236 features eight “Prelims” undercard bouts this weekend, half on Fight Pass and half on ESPN. Let’s have a look!

170 lbs.: Belal Muhammad vs. Curtis Millender

A 1-2 UFC start gave way to a four-fight win streak for Belal Muhammad (14-3), including an upset of Tim Means that saw Muhammad out-strike the vaunted Muay Thai artist. His run came to an end in January against Geoff Neal, whose power striking proved too much for “Remember the Name.”

He faces a three-inch height and four-inch reach discrepancy.

Curtis Millender (17-4) took home a “Performance of the Night” bonus for his knee knockout of Thiago Alves in his Octagon debut (watch highlights), which he followed up with decisions over Max Griffin and Siyar Bahadurzada to extend his win streak to nine. In his biggest fight to date, he took on the surging Elizeu Zaleski last month, tapping to a rear-naked choke midway through the first round.

His six knockout wins include two by head kick.

This is going to sound harsher than is warranted for someone who’s 3-1 in the Octagon, but I think this might be Millender’s ceiling. His takedown defense just hasn’t caught up with his striking — he’s been taken down at least once in all of his UFC fights, surrendering three to the compact Bahadurzada and one to Zaleski, who has a takedown accuracy of 15 percent.

Muhammad is tough as hell, isn’t lost against rangier strikers, and can wrestle. That seems like just the formula to handle “Curtious.”

Millender’s knees and head kicks will be a persistent threat, but as soon as Muhammad gets inside those limbs, he should be able to drag Millender to the mat with relative ease. Expect him to grind away for 15 one-sided minutes.

Prediction: Muhammad via unanimous decision

135 lbs.: Montel Jackson vs. Andre Soukhamthath

A series of fouls in his “Contender Series” victory kept Montel Jackson (7-1) from getting an immediate contract, but he got the chance to step up on short notice against Ricky Simon less than two months later. Though he struggled with Simon’s grappling in defeat, he showed what he could do with a full training camp in Dec. 2018, dropping and choking out Brian Kelleher in 100 seconds.

He has knocked out five opponents as a professional and several more as an amateur.

Andre Soukhamthath (13-6) made UFC history in the worst way possible when he insisted on taking down Sean O’Malley despite the latter being unable to stand because of a foot injury, resulting in him losing a decision. He returned to action seven months later against late replacement Jonathan Martinez, winning a unanimous decision to raise his UFC record to 2-3.

He is one inch shorter than Jackson and will give up nearly a half-foot of reach.

I’m impressed Soukhamthath’s foot still works considering how many times he’s shot it, and his insistence on throwing away winnable fights is made only more frustrating by the fact that he’s legitimately powerful and dangerous when he wants to be. He’s the better striker on paper, but it’s impossible to have faith in his ability to execute an effective gameplan.

To make matters worse, Soukhamthath can’t fall back on his wresting against a superior takedown artist, and the reach disparity means that Soukhamthath will have to put himself in clinch danger if he wants to rip his customary body shots. Jackson mixes his long-range striking with regular takedowns, never letting Soukhamthath find a rhythm on his way to a dominant decision victory.

Prediction: Jackson via unanimous decision

125 lbs.: Poliana Botelho vs. Lauren Mueller

The UFC debut for Poliana Botelho (7-2) was one of the stranger in recent memory, taking place almost entirely on the fence as Pearl Gonzalez failed to take her down, but Botelho gave a glimpse of her action potential with a 33-second body kick knockout of Syuri Kondo her next time out. She entered her next bout with Cynthia Calvillo as the favorite, only to tap to a rear-naked choke late in the first round.

All but one of her professional victories have come by knockout.

Lauren Mueller (5-1) put on a strong performance on “Contender Series,” then followed that up with a decision over TUF veteran Shana Dobson in her Octagon debut. She was doing well with her wrestling against Wu Yanan in her sophomore appearance, but got caught in an armbar four minutes into the first round.

She steps in for the injured Paige VanZant on six weeks’ notice.

This fight should tell us whether Botelho is a legitimate contender or just a fun action fighter. Mueller is a strong infighter with some wrestling she can fall back on, two areas that Botelho needs to prove she can hold her own in. It’s a competitive match up that looks fit to deliver plenty of entertainment in a division that, let’s face it, has been a disappointment since its inception.

Botelho’s the bigger hitter, sports a three-inch height advantage, and has more experience in insane brawls, so unless her takedown defense is a bigger Achilles’ heel than I thought, expect her to bomb Mueller out late in the first.

Prediction: Botelho via first-round technical knockout

135 lbs.: Randy Costa vs. Brandon Davis

Randy Costa (4-0) went undefeated (3-0) as an amateur in 2014, but several issues delayed his professional debut until 2018. “The Zohan” has made up for lost time, knocking out all four of his professional opponents in less than 80 seconds apiece.

One of his knockout victories came via head kick in 11 seconds.

Brandon Davis (9-6) put on one of the best fights against Austin Arnett on “Contender Series,” earning a UFC spot despite the lack of finish. He’s just 1-3 in the Octagon itself, though, most recently tapping to a kneebar from Zabit Magomedsharipov.

He will be making his Bantamweight debut.

Costa’s one of the stranger UFC signings in recent memory in terms of both the circumstances and the way he fights. As far as the former, his opponents’ records when he fought them were 0-4, 0-0, 5-9, and 0-1. As far as the latter, he mixes fast, dexterous and powerful head kicks with wound-up punches as heavy as they are telegraphed. It’s an inefficient style, and if nothing else, Davis is stupid durable and doesn’t get tired.

This one won’t be ending in one minute and 20 seconds.

I have concerns about Davis cutting to 135 pounds, since his issues appeared to stem more from technical limitations than being outsized. If the weight management puts a dent in his durability or gas tank, he’s defensively porous enough to get drilled early. Assuming he’s still at or near peak capacity, though, I say he weathers Costa’s early onslaught and settles down to win a war of attrition.

Prediction: Davis via third-round technical knockout

We’ve got four more UFC 236 “Prelims” undercard bouts to preview and predict tomorrow, including an undefeated Chechen Welterweight with eight knockouts in eight wins and the long-awaited debut of Boston Salmon. Same time as always, Maniacs!

Remember that MMAmania.com will deliver LIVE round-by-round, blow-by-blow coverage of the entire UFC 236 fight card on fight night, starting with the Fight Pass “Prelims” matches online, which are scheduled to begin at 6:15 p.m. ET, then the remaining undercard balance on ESPN at 8 p.m. ET, before the PPV main card start time at 10 p.m. ET on ESPN+.

UFC 236 Free Fight Video! Gastelum Sleeps Bisping In Shanghai

Kelvin Gastelum will look to win gold next weekend at UFC 236 when he takes on undefeated contender Israel Adesanya for the interim UFC middleweight title.

Remember, Gastelum was expected to face current 185-pound titleholder Robert Whittaker back at UFC 234 this past February, but an injury to “Bobby Knuckles” put that championship bout on ice.

In preparation for Gastelum’s upcoming clash with “Last Stylebender,” UFC has released arguably the best performance of Kelvin’s accomplished career, which can be seen in the above video player. The action focuses on Gastelum’s main event bout with former UFC middleweight champion Michael Bisping back at UFC Fight Night 122 in 2017. In just over two minutes into the very first round, Gastelum was able to land a ferocious left hand counter that put “The Count” out for good.

Only time will tell if Gastelum is able to apply this sort of punching power against the longer and more versatile striking of Adesanya, or if the former Ultimate Fighter winner will have to rely on his ground game to subdue “Last Stylebender” en route to his first UFC title.

UFC 236 will take place on April 13 live on pay-per-view (PPV) from inside the State Farm Arena in Atlanta, Georgia, and feature a main event interim lightweight title fight between current UFC featherweight champion Max Holloway and 155-pound contender Dustin Poirier.

BJ Penn Is Going to Fight Clay Guida for a Special Sadness Double-Whammy

Former champ BJ Penn is riding that six-fight losing streak like nobody’s business. But since his last bout ended with a quick submission loss to Ryan Hall, and Penn took virtually no damage before tapping out, he’s ready to fight again.

Clay Guida’s losing streak isn’t quite so robust, but the dude is reaching the end of the road, too.

Hey, why not match these guys up? You know, for laughs!

Well, that’s exactly what the UFC is doing for UFC 237. Because apparently we haven’t shed enough tears over heroes dying in the Octagon. Here’s MMAFighting:

Former lightweight and welterweight champion B.J. Penn will return to the Octagon one more time on May 11, as he takes on Clay Guida at the UFC 237 pay-per-view show in Brazil, multiple sources told MMA Fighting.

Penn (16-13-2), who did his last training camp at Rio’s Nova Uniao, competed for the last time in the city in 2000, when he became the first non-Brazilian to ever win a gold medal in a jiu-jitsu world champion.

The Hawaiian star is looking to snap a six-fight looking skid dating back to 2011, capped off by a loss to Ryan Hall in December. Prior to that — and a majority draw with Jon Fitch —, “The Prodigy” scored his last win in a 21-second knockout over Matt Hughes in Nov. 2010.

Guida (34-18) fought for the last time in June 2018, tapping to a guillotine choke against Charles Oliveira. “The Carpenter” had won back-to-back bouts prior to that defeat, knocking out Joe Lauzon in 67 seconds and defeating Erik Koch via decision.

Midnight Mania! DC Won’t Fight, Will Beat Ngannou

Bringing you the weird and wild from the world of MMA each and every weeknight

Welcome to Midnight Mania!

Daniel Cormier is very loyal to his teammates, and had to admit that Francis Ngannou’s knockout of his teammate and friend Cain Velasquez had him fired up to avenge the loss. However, Ngannou didn’t call him out, and he wasn’t about to commit to the matchup straightaway. Via MMAFighting.com:

“Every time you see something like that, the emotions tell you you go get it back, you go make it right,” an emotional Cormier said Sunday night on ESPN’s SportsCenter. “But Francis Ngannou, who didn’t ask for a fight, maybe later he will, and if that’s something we decide we want to do, then that’s what I’ll do.

“I won’t go fight Francis Ngannou,” Cormier emphasized. “I will beat Francis Ngannou.”

DC is currently out with injury. Moreover, Dana White has already said that he has another fight in mind for Daniel Cormier- most probably Brock Lesnar. However, if that fight were to fall through, Ngannou could very well find himself in the Octagon with the two-time Olympic wrestler. If that’s the case, Cormier better hope he has better success than his teammate. Cormier said watching it was difficult for him, especially as he wasn’t there in person to support his friend.

“I know how hard he trained,” DC said. “I know how well he prepared for this fight, and for it to end the way that it did was very unfortunate, was very hard to watch, I wasn’t able to get to Phoenix. It’s sad, it makes me very sad that I’m not there right now, that he lost in this way.”

He repeated what Cain said, that he seemed well-prepared but fell victim to an unforeseeable accident.

“He looked good,” Cormier said. “I thought he was ready to fight, and I felt like he was ready to win this fight. You just cannot control some of the things that happen. He hurt his knee. And obviously you’re fighting a big powerful guy like Francis, there’s no room for error.”

What fight would be best for Cormier next? Stipe Miocic has been calling for a rematch for a long time; Ngannou has two elite knockouts in a row now, and Brock Lesnar is waiting as the ultimate payday fight.

Jason Herzog refs with a tazer??

Alistair Overeem reflecting on that time his soul departed from his body for a while.

This fight was absolutely nuts

Okay, Kron

Paul Felder is the man. This is the stuff of legends.

I thought someone had photoshopped Aljamain Sterling’s head on Francis Ngannou’s body for a second, he’s looking jacked these days.

Speaking of Ngannou…

We just wanna party, party just for you

My favorite genre of martial arts teacher is the one that apparently thinks he is Quicksilver and can leisurely disarm people who have guns pointed at him.

Stunning display of athleticism. Who says white men can’t jump?

Personally, I think they should do McGregor vs. Ferguson and Diaz vs. Cerrone 2, but what do I know?

Cain Velasquez offering to help out Francis Ngannou with his foundation in Africa is a fantastic show of solidarity.

That’s not surprising whatsoever

Badass from Rose Namajunas

For those who doubt.

Tatiana Suarez has the right idea.

This is somehow, true. Kron is the first of his name to win in the UFC in twenty-five years.

What a philosophy, to love that which kills you. Andre Fili is the man.
