PFL 3 Results: Jake Shields Gets Slaughtered, John Howard Wins Big

The Professional Fighters League, or, as we in the industry like to call it, Zombie World Series of Fighting, has another installment tonight. And while the setting may have been a bit inauspicious – in a university gymnasium in Washington, DC (GWU, my alma mater) – there violence level was akin to an old Mortal Kombat game.

Hey, remember Jake Shields? He was a jiu-jitsu badass in Strikeforce, struggled for traction but did moderately well in the UFC, and then got old in the WSOF. Well, he faced a young Hawaiian face-punching specialist in Ray Cooper III for PFL 3’s main event, and Cooper slaughtered him. It was a bad case of sprawl-and-brawl, and Shields came down with it hard, eventually becoming a bloody, fetal mess on the canvas. Yikes!

John Howard dusted off the cobwebs and beat the snot out of Gasan Umalatov. Howard punched the fellow UFC vet in the grill, then took him down, took his back, and eventually worked up a choke that forced Umalatov to tap.

Weidman, Gastelum Beef Over Who Gets Next UFC Title Shot

Now that UFC middleweight champion Robert Whittaker has gotten past Yoel Romero for the second time, the 185-pound class finally has some clarity.

Well, sort of.

The next shot at Whittaker’s middleweight title is ultimately down to two men. Either former UFC middleweight champion Chris Weidman gets another crack at gold or former welterweight contender Kelvin Gastelum makes good on his middleweight potential.

Leading the charge is Weidman, who recently declared himself the “most decorated guy in the division,” pointing out the fact that he beat Gastelum via submission when the two met back at UFC on FOX 25 last year.

Gastelum, who followed his first-round knockout victory over former UFC middleweight champion Michael Bisping with a split-decision win over Brazilian legend Ronaldo Souza this past May, took offense to Weidman’s comments. The former Ultimate Fighter winner believes he has done enough at 185 pounds to earn the next shot at Whittaker’s strap.

Gastelum took to Twitter earlier this week to plead his case and talk a little smack:

Never shy to speak his mind, Weidman returned the favor and pointed out the fact that he beat Gastelum head-to-head in his last Octagon appearance.

At this point, it’s difficult to determine which middleweight deserves the next shot at Whittaker, who is coming off a split-decision win over Romero at UFC 225.

Weidman, 33, is a former champion who holds victories over notable UFC greats like Anderson Silva, Vitor Belfort, and Lyoto Machida, but the New York native has lost three out of his last four.

Gastelum, 26, has compiled a 3-1, 1 NC record since joining the division back in 2016. And even though Weidman holds a win over him, Kelvin’s recent success inside of the cage warrants immediate title consideration.

What say you, Maniacs? Who deserves the next UFC middleweight title shot?

UFC 225 Results: Rashad Evans Gets Knocked Out Again

Rashad Evans was the champ once upon a time, but has lost his last four fights because he’s old and should’ve retired like any sane person would have done. But hey, everyone needs a paycheck, so here we are.

Anthony Smith has fought pretty much everywhere – the UFC, Strikeforce, Bellator, the UFC again – and has a knockout over Hector Lombard as his most notable recent win.

The bout begins with Smith kicking Evans leg, and Evans seeking that clinch like his life depends on it. But when he gets it and presses Smith against the cage, Smith simply pushes the former light-heavyweight champ’s head down and cracks him in the dome with a knee. Evans drops, and that’s it.
