UFC 192 fight card gets Joseph Benavidez vs. Ali Bagautinov, Angela Hill vs. Rose Namajunas

The fight card for UFC 192 continues to fill out as two bouts have now been added to the card. The Houston Chronicle reports a flyweight bout between Joseph Benavidez and Ali Bagautinov as well as a women’s strawweight contest between Angela Hill and Rose Namajunas will now take place at that event.

Benavidez is riding a three-fight win streak, having most recently defeated John Moraga via unanimous decision at UFC 187 in May of this year. Ali Bagautinov returns from a performance-enhancing drug (PED)-related suspension following his last bout in June of 2014, a flyweight title fight he lost via unanimous decision to champion Demetrious Johnson.

Hill returns to action after suffering her first professional defeat at the hands of Tecia Torres in June at UFC 188. Namajunas is also looking to rebound after losing a contest for the UFC strawweight title against then-champion Carla Esparza at The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 20 Finale in December of 2014. Both were TUF 20 season contestants.

UFC 192 is headlined by a light heavyweight title clash between champion Daniel Cormier and challenger Alexander Gustafsson. The event will take place on October 3 at the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas.

Paul Felder gets quick turnaround vs. Ross Pearson at UFC 191

Paul Felder was upset about his loss just two weeks ago. He’ll have the chance to correct those mistakes in a hurry.

Felder will take on Ross Pearson at UFC 191 on Sept. 5, UFC vice president of public relations Dave Sholler confirmed Friday on Twitter. The MMA Corner reported the news earlier this week.

Felder (10-1) won his first two fights in the UFC, including a spinning back fist knockout of Danny Castillo at UFC 182 back in January. But his undefeated record was tarnished by Barboza in an incredibly entertaining, stand-up war at UFC on FOX 16 on July 25. Barboza edged out a decision, but Felder certainly had his moments. Felder, 30, is one of the more exciting up-and-coming fighters in the lightweight division. The Philadelpha native, who trains at Donald Cerrone’s ranch, is also a former theater actor.

Pearson (17-9) has lost two of three and alternated wins and losses since last year. The exciting British kickboxer is coming off a unanimous decision loss to Evan Dunham last month at UFC Fight Night: Bisping vs. Leites in Scotland. Pearson, 30, has 12 finishes in 17 career fights.

UFC 191 is headlined by a flyweight title fight between champion Demetrious Johnson and John Dodson. The co-main event pits together two heavyweight legends in Frank Mir and Andrei Arlovski. Also on the card, Anthony Johnson will take on Jimi Manuwa.

UFC 190 bonuses: Ronda Rousey gets $50,000 bonus for 34-second KO of Bethe Correia

On a night when everybody expected Ronda Rousey to dominate, the UFC’s women’s bantamweight champ did just that.

Rousey scored a 34-second knockout victory over Brazilian Bethe Correia in Rio de Janeiro at UFC 190. Crazily, this was the longest fight she’s had in a year-and-a-half. Rousey’s previous victories — over Alexis Davis and Cat Zingano — lasted a grand total of 30 seconds.

And for her quick dismantling of the previously undefeated Correia Rousey pocketed an extra $ 50,000 in bonus money. The UFC announced that Rousey was among the four fighters from Saturday night’s card to be awarded an end-of-the-night bonus.

Also receiving a Performance of the Night bonus was Demian Maia, who put on a grappling clinic against Neil Magny earlier on the main card. Maia dominated the ground game against Magny — who was riding a seven-fight win streak — en-route to a second-round submission (rear-naked choke).

The Fight of the Night bonus went to the old familiar warhorses Antonio Rogerio Nogueira and Mauricio Rua, who fought a back-and-forth battle in the co-main event. The two met a decade ago during the 2005 Middleweight Grand Prix, in one of the more memorable fights on record. Just as he did then, “Shogun” emerged as the victor against “Lil’ Nog” on Saturday night, winning a unanimous decision.

Maia, Rua and Nogueira all took home an extra $ 50,000.

UFC Fight Night 71 results: Alan Jouban gets past Matt Dwyer via unanimous decision

SAN DIEGO — It was the rarest of sightings in an MMA cage: A referee actually deducting a point for a clear infraction.

Alan Jouban rocked Matt Dwyer in the first round of their UFC Fight Night 71 middleweight bout at Valley View Casino Center, dropped him to the mat … then clearly lined him up and walloped him with an illegal knee.

Referee Herb Dean rightfully docked Jouban a point. But that turned out to be the only mistake of note the Jouban made in the fight, as he got the best of matters in a thrilling battle which brought the crowd to their feet.

The judges’ scores were 29-27 across the board for Jouban.

“Matt Dwyer was high on a list of fighters I wanted to fight, because I knew we’d put on a good show, open the main card and put on a good show,” Jouban said.

Dwyer got the action rolling in the opening round when he dropped Jouban early, but that only only made the fighting male model from Los Angeles step up his game. Jouban disregarded Dwyer’s height and reach advantage and waded in to land crisp combos, one of which dropped Dwyer and led to the illegal knee.

The frenetic action continued in the second round, as the two traded nasty kicks to the head and body. Jouban, however, got the last laugh in that regard, as he landed a cartwheel kick to the head in the round’s closing seconds, which nearly ended the bout.

“It’s something I land high percentage in training,” Jouban said. “It’s been a race, Anthony Pettis Cub Swanson. It’s nice to be first to land it.”

The tough Dwyer returned for the final round, but appeared spent. Jouban couldn’t quite put Dwyer away, but if there was any doubt in the final frame, he settled it by scoring a takedown and working from the top.

Jouban improved to 12-3, 3-1 in the UFC. Dwyer dropped to 8-3, 1-2 in the UFC.
