Henry Briones injured, Brad Pickett gets new opponent for UFC Fight Night 107 in London

Brad Pickett has a new opponent for his retirement bout at UFC Fight Night 107.

The Englishman will be fighting short-notice replacement Marlon Vera in a bantamweight bout for next week’s UFC event in London, the UFC announced on Saturday.

Pickett was originally scheduled to fight Henry Briones, but the Mexican fighter was forced to withdraw from the bout due to an eye injury sustained during sparring on Tuesday, which he revealed through his Facebook. The cancellation of the bout marked the third time Briones withdrew from a scheduled bout with Pickett.

Now, Pickett will look to walk away from the sport with a win in his hometown, while Vera will look to build off a decision win over Ning Guangyou last November.

UFC Fight Night 107 takes place on March 18 at the The O2 Arena in London, England. Light heavyweights Jimi Manuwa and Corey Anderson are set to battle in the main event of the card.

Liam McGeary gets new opponent for Bellator 173 main event

For the second week in a row, Bellator is forced to change a main event on short notice.

Days after pulling Fedor Emelianenko vs. Matt Mitrione from Bellator 172 due to illness, former Bellator light heavyweight champion Liam McGeary found himself without an opponent after Chris Fields suffered an undisclosed injury. Severe MMA first reported the news.

Headlining Friday’s Bellator 173 in Belfast, McGeary will now take on promotional newcomer Vladimir Filipovic, who enters the Bellator cage for the first time after winning eight of 10 professional bouts in Serbia and Russia, including six stoppages.

McGeary, who suffered the first blemish of his MMA career against Phil Davis in November, looks to rebound after losing the Bellator 205-pound championship via unanimous decision. He was 8-0 under the promotion’s banner heading into the fight.

The Weekly Grind: Pickett and Nurmagomedov play pranks on teammates, Derrick Lewis gets foot massage

The life of a professional fighter isn’t all glitz and glamour.

As if getting punched, kicked, kneed, choked and twisted into a pretzel on a regular basis isn’t enough, fighters attract a general wackiness that makes their lives, well…interesting.

To commemorate these day-to-day hardships, slip-ups, pranks, and more, we present to you, “The Weekly Grind.”

UFC 208 medical suspensions: Dustin Poirier gets indefinite sentence

UFC lightweight contender Dustin Poirier was the lone fighter to received a potentially lengthy medical suspension in the aftermath of UFC 208, as Poirier was suspended indefinitely due to possible injuries sustained during his main card bout against Jim Miller, according to information released Wednesday by the New York State Athletic Commission (NYSAC).

Poirier defeated Miller via unanimous decision in a back-and-forth contest that garnered ‘Fight of the Night’ honors at UFC 208. Poirier suffered substantial damage to his right leg over the course of the bout, however he revealed on social media Sunday that he sustained no broken bones against Miller. Nonetheless, Poirier will be formally sidelined until receiving doctor and commission clearance on any potential injuries, per NYSAC orders.

UFC 208 took place Feb. 11 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. Germaine de Randamie edged Holly Holm to capture the inaugural UFC women’s featherweight title in the night’s main event, which aired live on pay-per-view.

Unlike many other state athletic commissions, the NYSAC does not publicly disclose reasons for the length of its suspensions.

A complete list of UFC 208’s medical suspensions can be seen below.

  • Dustin Poirier: Suspended indefinitely, requires commission clearance
  • Holly Holm: Minimum suspension of 45 days, requires commission clearance
  • Rick Glenn: Minimum suspension of 45 days, requires commission clearance
  • Germaine de Randamie: Minimum suspension of 30 days, requires commission clearance
  • Jim Miller: Minimum suspension of 30 days, requires commission clearance
  • Nik Lentz: Minimum suspension of 30 days, requires commission clearance
  • Islam Makhachev: Minimum suspension of 30 days, requires commission clearance
  • Roan Carneiro: Minimum suspension of 30 days, requires commission clearance
  • Anderson Silva: Suspended 30 days
  • Ryan LaFlare: Suspended 30 days
  • Derek Brunson: Suspended 7 days
  • Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza: Suspended 7 days
  • Tim Boestch: Suspended 7 days

UFC 208 results: Anderson Silva gets debatable decision over Derek Brunson

Anderson Silva’s not the fighter he used to be. And he knows it.

But the longest reigning champion in UFC history is still capable of competing in the Octagon, even if he isn’t the fighter who once dominated the middleweight division for 7-1/2 years.

After earning a debatable unanimous decision (29-28, 29-28, 30-27) over Derek Brunson in the co-feature bout of UFC 208 on Saturday night at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center, an emotional Silva, who turns 42 in two months, broke down in tears.

“I know I am too old for fight,” said Silva (34-8, 1 NC), who won for the first time since Oct. 2012. “All the guys here too fast for me, strong, but I put in my heart, because fighting is in my heart.”

Brunson, who was coming off a brutal knockout lost to Robert Whittaker in his last fight, seemed overly wary in the early going. Silva, for his part, also got off to a slow start. But Brunson did his best work throughout the fight in the clinch, as he managed to neutralize Silva along the fence and score with dirty boxing. Silva missed with a flying knee late and Brunson landed on top to close the round.

In the second, Silva seemed the clear-cut winner, as he sprawled several attempted takedowns and showed flashes of his old magic. Silva dropped his hands on several occasions and attempted several spinning strikes, including a spinning back kick which connected.

Both fighters appeared to tire in the third round, but a Brunson takedown in the final two minutes seemed to make the difference, as he stayed in top position for the remainder of the round.

“When I come here, when I come inside his cage, I put in all my life, I respect everybody here, UFC fans, I just, now I just come to fight happy because I love my job, I love UFC, for long time my dream fighting here in New York. I don’t believe this, thank you.”

Silva got back in the win column after a five-fight stretch with four losses and a no-contest; Brunson (16-5) lost for the second straight fight.

TUF washout accused of beating up high school girl, gets sent for mental examination by local court

Something in the water?

The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 6 contestant Daniel Lee Barrera, bounced from the combat sports reality show by Ben Saunders in the opening round, is no longer competing in mixed martial arts (MMA), but that doesn’t mean the aging welterweight is done fighting.

Unfortunately, his last opponent was (allegedly) an unsuspecting high school girl.

From the Hawaii Tribune-Herald:

According to Deputy Prosecutor Glenn Shiigi, the police report indicates 36-year-old Daniel Lee Barrera of Keaau walked uninvited into wrestling practice at Pahoa High School, came up behind the girl as she was in a wrestler’s position on hands and knees, and struck her three times on the back with an open palm, causing pain and redness. The girl reportedly told police she had never met Barrera prior to the incident.

Barrera insists he was there by invitation and also told the court that Hawaiians need to “toughen up.”

Aside from a mandatory mental evaluation, Barrera remains in custody on $ 2,000 bail as a result of prior run-ins with the law, including disorderly conduct and harassment. His hearing is scheduled for Feb. 28.

Any chance this is a factor?
