Price KO’s Means Outta Nowhere in Insane One-Round War

Welterweight bangers Tim Means and Niko Price threw down tonight (Saturday, March 9, 2019) in the INTRUST Bank Arena in Wichita, Kansas, only on ESPN+ (start your free trial here)

Price opened with kicks and then unloaded on Tim Means! He caught Means with a barrage of punches, and Means switched from covering up to a double-leg, picking up and slamming Price to the mat. He postured and landed hard punches on a grounded Price, looking to pass the guard. He got to knee on belly and rained down hammerfists for a moment, then looked for a kimura. Price got to his base, and Means landed a hard knee as he stood. Price landed a leg kick, ate a left straight, threw a high kick. Means grabbed his wreist and landed a quick combination. Means landed another quick combination, and another left straight. Price ate a hard left straight and somehow stayed on his feet. He rocked Price, who was still swinging back. Means landed another mean hook and a slap behind it. Price staggered backward, looking out of it, but a second later slept Means out of nowhere with an overhand! Unbelievable knockout from Niko Price! The man can literally find a finish from anywhere. He was getting tagged hard there, too.

Price was excited in the post-fight interview, and kept saying ‘BOOM!’, and ‘Glory to God!’ with a ‘Hell yeah!’ mixed in there. What a win, what a war. These guys delivered, that was a one-round scrap for the ages.

Official result: Niko Price def. Tim Means via KO at 4:50 of Round 1

Covington Standing Ground Even If It Means ‘Never Fighting Again’

Colby Covington keeps digging himself a deeper hole with Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) after not getting the welterweight title shot he wanted.

Less than one week after UFC president Dana White confirmed that “Chaos” is no loner the interim welterweight champion, having defeated Rafael dos Anjos at UFC 225 to claim the title, Covington has made it clear that he’s no longer going to play nice with the massive MMA promotion.

“I’m just moving on with my life,” Covington told TSN. “I’m not going to be the nice guy anymore. I’m not going to be the guy that tells lies about the UFC and tries to cover for the UFC like they’re so great and everything’s fine and dandy.

“I’ve done so many favors for the UFC, flown all over the world, fought for little money against top contenders, fought for entry-level money. I’ve never complained, always been a company man, never failed a steroid test. Never done anything wrong, literally never.”

This situation has gotten so out of hand that Covington, who is just 30 years of age and has compiled a professional MMA record of 14-1 (9-1 UFC), is threatening to walk away from the sport. That is unless he gets the title shot he was promised.

“I’m the biggest draw in this division right now,” Covington proclaimed. “I’m not fighting for anything less than I deserve and I don’t care what they say. I’ll stand up for what’s right and if that means never fighting again then that means never fighting again.

“I’ve already built a great life for myself. I came from the projects. I came from trailer parks, growing up with one parent, just my mom, having to work four jobs. I don’t need anything anymore. I’ve already made enough money where I’m healthy and I have investments and I have enough going on in my life that I don’t need to fight ever again. You may never see me fight again. That’s a possibility right now.”

I guess UFC better pony up that “undisputed champion” money.

Despite these rants, it’s highly unlikely that UFC will budge and feed into Covington’s antics. At the end of the day, the promotion waits for no fighter. Just ask current UFC welterweight champion Tyron Woodley, who has already warned his nemesis of his wrong doings.

At this point, Covington may be better off laying low and keeping his name out of the headlines. The more he pokes the bear that is UFC the less likely he is to get his way.

Jon Jones Post-Fight Drug Tests Come Back Clean, Which Means Nothing

In case you missed it, the UFC administered Jon Jones their own little drug test before UFC 232, and because homeboy still had some steroids floating around inside him, they moved the event from Nevada to California. Because, you know, some athletic commissions are more cool with steroids than others.

Jones went on to defeat Alexander Gustafsson in a rematch, win back the belt, blah, blah, blah.

Well, the results from the UFC 232 drug tests are back, and according to the California State Athletic Commission and USADA, there is no evidence of any banned substances.

This means nothing. The fact is, the drug test the UFC made Jones take before UFC 232 was at least conclusive enough to warrant moving an ENTIRE event to another state.

Now, let’s see Jones pass a drug test in Nevada. Then we’ll talk.
