Andrade Wants To End 2018 By Knocking Out Rose Namajunas

After tearing through Karolina Kowalkiewicz at UFC 228, Andrade has her eyes set firmly on the 115 pound title.

Jessica Andrade has always been a serious threat in whatever division she’s competed in, but the Andrade we saw on Saturday night at UFC 228 seems to have leveled up violence-wise through serious focus on her Muay Thai skills. It took her just under two minutes to absolutely smash the durable Karolina Kowalkiewicz, and now fans are wondering whether she could do the same to women’s strawweight champ Rose Namajunas.

”I got the knockout and that devastating win,” Andrade said during the post-fight press conference (via MMA Fighting). “Which I’m sure leaves no doubt that I can be next to fight for the belt.”

MMA math has Andrade looking pretty good considering Kowalkiewicz beat Namajunas via split decision back in 2016. But the new top contender for the title doesn’t think that means much.

“Rose is a very versatile athlete,” she continued. “She’s got good striking, she’s evolved a lot since she fought Karolina. But I believe I have great chances of winning and becoming champion, both in the striking and on the ground.”

“I’ve improved a lot. I think after tonight’s knockout, for sure it got me one step closer to being able to fight for this belt and show people that I can be a great striker, a great jiu-jitsu fighter and that I’m going to be a lot of work for these girls in the division.”

If Andrade gets her way, she’ll face Namajunas at UFC 232, the year end card that already features a superfight between featherweight champ Cris Cyborg and bantamweight champ Amanda Nunes.

“Who doesn’t want to fight in the last UFC event of the year?” Andrade said (apparently cutting weight during Christmas isn’t a big concern to her). “I asked for this fight for Dec. 29. We’ll see what Dana and the UFC have planned for me. But this fight has to happen. I just want it to happen.”

Midnight Mania! Jones Wants DC Twice More, To ‘Crush His Confidence’

Bringing you the weird and wild from the world of MMA each and every weeknight

Welcome to Midnight Mania!

Jon Jones has always had particularly stinging trash talk for his most hated opponent, Daniel Cormier. He mixes a dose of truth with a generous serving of petty and tops it with plenty of cruelty. His latest is no exception.

Jon Jones (@JonnyBones) targets 2 more victories against Daniel Cormier (@DC_MMA)

A post shared by RT Sport (@rtsportnews) on

Via RT.com:

“I think that beating him a third time would really do something to his confidence. In his head, I feel like he thinks he can still beat me, especially because the fight was going fairly well until I knocked him out. I want to crush his confidence. I want to let him know that I’m going to be Cael Sanderson. Cael Sanderson is a wrestler who beat Daniel Cormier seven times and I’m going to be his Cael Sanderson.

”He said to me once, ‘Jon Jones, I’ll always be that kid in your bracket,’ meaning he will always be in the same tournament as me. I’m sure he regrets that because we always see who ends up in the first place position when we go up against each other, but I want to break his will. I want to break the idea of him thinking he can beat me. I believe doing that at light heavyweight would be the smartest thing to do, for a third time.

“Leading into our fourth fight, a possible fourth fight for the heavyweight championship of the world, his confidence won’t be in the right spot. It won’t, and I think it will help me take that fourth victory over him and that heavyweight championship from him. I think I have his number.

”No matter how hard he trains, I train a little bit harder. I’m a little bit younger, a bit longer, a little cuter.”

That’s your opinion, Jon.

Israel Adesanya looks up to this guy so you owe it to yourself to see how good a dancer he is.

This was the funniest video of the weekend

Works every time

Much better self defense video, to be honest

NO STOP WHAT ARE YOU DOING

Best anime fight scene

Ouch

Very impressive


Slips, Rips, KO Clips

Out like an exploding lightbulb

Woah

Damn!!!!

Unbelievably good goal.
