Bringing you the weird and wild from the world of MMA each and every weeknight
Welcome to Midnight Mania!
Devin Powell will be out of action for a while.
The UFC lightweight was training knees with Joe Lauzon and evidently, Lauzon literally busted his balls. Or, more properly, his ball, rupturing a testicle with “his sheer power”.
Devin was surprisingly upbeat about the whole thing. He evidently waited a day and a half to go to the doctor… which he doesn’t recommend. He explained the incident on Instagram:
Thanks to the fine ambulatory services in Wells, ME, I am checked into the hospital and ready for surgery. Shout out to @joelauzon we’ve been practicing knees on the ground and he successfully ruptured my testicle with his sheer power. His opponent has no chance in April … now to get the blood clot drained and the goods repaired . I waited a day and a half to be seen.. word for the wise, if you hurt yourself, go get checked out. @danawhite @seanshelbyhow about a NY @Ufc fight coming up… this will be quite the comeback story . Share this and help me get the ball rolling on my next Fight and follow my journey… pun intended

Luke Rockhold vs. Alexander Gustafsson?? Despite Rockhold’s KO loss to Romero… count me in. Gus’s callout was awesome too.
@lukerockhold , your teammate is holding MY Division hostage, and you think there are only easy fights at LHW. If u think Romero hits hard, then wait till you come to the big boys. I want @dc_mma , and knocking u out will keep me warm in the meantime. Beware of coming up in weight because I will be standing at the front door waiting.
It is not befitting of a world champion to whine so much. A champion is someone that represents courage and strength. An ability to endure difficult circumstances and push on. How is it not obvious that this characteristic negatively affects marketability?

I pray this comment isn’t for me. Because it’s so bizarre when non champions say what a champion should represent. Especially with little to zero knowledge of circumstance. But I know it’s not about me, being the respect we have for one another…… https://t.co/F56jwF2ZFV

Go back and read some of the comments from your own fans, replying to your tweet! I respect you as an athlete and a champion, but many UFC fans aren’t Woodley fans, and as a champion it’s worth listening to them and figuring out why. https://t.co/iqFYIcszC7

Go back and check my resume, and what I’ve done in a short period of time. See how I captured this title. I respect you, and As a fan it’s worth going back and reading. https://t.co/2gz58Nn4AF

- Matt Mitrione is happy in Bellator with the sponsorship money… and he says the way Bellator treats their fighters is just different (in a good way)
- A mindset coach identifies a lot of the common red flags with fighters who need to get their mental game together. Solid advice for both fighters and the general public.
- Lobov vs. Caceres sounds fun
- How MMA in India grapples with PED use is a fascinating read on a scene I didn’t even know existed

A breakdown of Fedor’s takedown game from the clinch:
Joe Lauzon isn’t wasting any time returning the Octagon.
Lauzon will fight for the second time this year when he squares off against Stevie Ray in a lightweight contest at UFC Fight Night 108 on April 22 in Nashville. The UFC announced the fight Wednesday.
Lauzon, who has won three of his past five fights, defeated Marcin Held via split decision at UFC Fight Night 103 this past January.
Ray, who has four of his five UFC fights, defeated Ross Pearson via split decision in his last fight this past November.
Joe Lauzon and Marcin Held threw down in the co-main event of UFC Fight Night 103 — which went down tonight (Sun., Jan. 15, 2017) inside Talking Stick Resort Arena in Phoenix, Arizona — and it took all three rounds to determine a winner.
Lauzon was the aggressor early, looking to put the striking pressure on Held from the jump. But, Marcin stayed composed and managed to get the bout to the ground on a few occasions, though some say wouldn’t be the best option against a submission specialist like “J-Lau.”
That didn’t deter Held from taking the longtime veteran down repeatedly. Lauzon nearly locked in a fight-ending armbar in round two, but Held once again kept his cool, fighting his way out.
In round three, both men were visibly tired, as the strikes had less pop to the, and the takedown attempts were plentiful. In the end, the Octagon-side judges scored the bout in favor of Lauzon, who didn’t agree with the decision, saying he felt Held should’ve been awarded the win.
Nevertheless, Held is now 0-2 to begin his UFC career, while Joe picks up an all-important win after he felt he “got screwed” in his last fight against Jim Miller.

At UFC 200, Joe Lauzon fought Diego Sanchez in a fight many fans thought it would be a three-round war. However, Lauzon was able to stop Sanchez impressively by scoring a first-round technical knockout. Lauzon became the first man to put away Diego Sanchez in a fight.
Now, Lauzon is scheduled to fight Marcin Held in the co-main event of UFC Fight Night 103 which is set to take place at the Talking Stick Resort Arena in Phoenix, Ariz. Former lightweight champ B.J. Penn is set to fight Yair Rodriguez in a featherweight bout in the main event of the card.
The next UFC on the menu comes at as on Saturday, with UFC Fight Night 103 rocking our television screens with the return of BJ Penn. That’s the main event, though; the co-main has veteran leg-taker Joe Lauzon taking on young buck (and former Bellator stud) Marcin Held, who also likes to snag leglocks in […]
The post UFC Fight Night 103 Primer: Joe Lauzon Gonna Whoop That Butt appeared first on Caged Insider.
It what was billed as a potential “Fight of the Year” contender, the Diego Sanchez vs Joe Lauzon Lightweight fight at UFC 200 was anything but.
That’s because Lauzon got in, took care of business and got out as fast as possible, taking out one of the most exciting and entertaining fighters in the history of the sport in just under 90 seconds via technical knockout.
The win earned “J-Lau” yet another $ 50,000 bonus.
Lauzon will look to get back on the winning track when he faces Marcin Held — who was last seen losing to the aforementioned Sanchez — at the upcoming UFC Fight Night 103 event, which is set to go down inside Talking Stick Resort Arena in Phoenix, Arizona on Saturday January, 15, 2017.
To see who else is fighting at the Fox Sports 1 event — which will be headlined by an intriguing featherweight fight BJ Penn and Yair Rodriguez — click here.
The UFC has added a pair of bouts to its upcoming card in Phoenix, Ariz. In the lightweight division, Joe Lauzon takes on Marcin Held, while Bryan Caraway meets Jimmie Rivera in a bantamweight bout.
Headlined by Yair Rodriguez vs. B.J. Penn, the event is scheduled for Jan. 15 at the Talking Stick Arena.
Lauzon (26-12) enters the bout coming off a ‘Fight of the Night’ split decision loss to Jim Miller in August. In his previous bout, the lightweight veteran finished Diego Sanchez in the first round.
Held (22-5), on the other hand, looks for his first win under the UFC banner after suffering a unanimous decision loss to Diego Sanchez in his promotional debut on Nov. 5.
Caraway (21-7) goes for his third straight victory after collecting a pair of decision victories against Eddie Wineland and Aljamain Sterling in 2015 and 2016.
Rivera (20-1), who returns to action after scoring the biggest win of his MMA career over Urijah Faber, hasn’t lost since his second professional bout in 2008.
