UFC 223 Primer: Dan Hardy and John Gooden Break Down Namajunas vs. Jedrzejczyk

Thanks to some Irish dude going crazy and throwing things at vans, we almost didn’t have a fight between strawweight champ Rose Namajunas and Joanna Jedrzejczyk at UFC 223 on Saturday night.

You see, Namajunas was in the van parked within the bowels of the Barclays Center when McGregor and company went on their rampage, and though Michael Chiesa suffered a cut from broken glass after McGregor shattered one of the windows, Namajunas was pretty shaken up.

But she’s a tough cookie (obviously), and remains on the card.

So! A breakdown of the fight… Namajunas is going to want to punch Jedrzejczyk in the face again, or submit her (which is actually her specialty), and the former champ is going to want to avoid those two outcomes at all cost.

UK commentating team Dan Hardy and John Gooden of course can give you better insight into the intricacies of the match-up. And here they are!

John Dodson will receive portion of show money after UFC Belem fallout

Despite not competing this weekend at UFC Fight Night 125 in Belem, Brazil, UFC bantamweight contender John Dodson will receive a portion of his show money after opponent Pedro Munhoz failed to make weight.

The payout was originally reported by MMA Junkie and then later confirmed by MMA Fighting.

Dodson, who was pegged to fight Munhoz in the co-main event at UFC Fight Night 125, was not expected to bank any money after Munhoz came in four pounds over weight, but the promotion has changed its mind. It comes as a little bit of a surprise considering UFC rarely pays out show money when a bout doesn’t occur, especially if both fighters are offered a chance to still compete.

In this instance, Dodson could have accepted to fight Munhoz at a catchweight of 140 pounds but ultimately felt that the Brazilian probably weighed closer to that of a featherweight.

“He came in five pounds over weight,” Dodson said, according to MMAWeekly.com. “Originally, they told me he was three pounds (over), and I gave him the benefit of the doubt and said, ‘Oh, he’s 139?’ They said he’s more like 140-point-something. I’m guessing he’s in the ballpark figure around 141. He’s not bantamweight now, he’s a featherweight, first. Second, I made all the sacrifices and did my job to make weight, and he chose not to.”

Already in fight shape and eager to get back into the Octagon to shake off a recent split-decision loss to Marlon Moraes, look for “The Magician” to schedule a quick turnaround in the next month or two.
