#Knockeando UFC Fight Night 112-Chiesa vs Lee

Knockeando: UFC Fight Night 112-Chiesa vs Lee
Por Daniel “Mr. Clutch” Mercado Castro
            UFC presentó su Fight Night #112 desde el Chesapeake Energy Arena en Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, con una tremenda pelea estelar de Lightweight entre Kevin Lee (16-2) y Michael Chiesa (14-3). Chiesa, quien estaba rankeado #6 no pudo detener a Lee, rankeado #11, cuando este lo derrotó vía sumisión con un Rear Naked Choked a los 4:37 del 1er asalto. Pero la polémica fue que el arbitro paró la pelea antes de que Chiesa diera Tap Out, asumiendo que este no lo daría y sería puesto a dormir. Aunque pareciera que fue apresurado, la realidad es que era mínima la posibilidad que escapara de esa llave. ¡Mario Mazzagatti la cagó!
            Dominick Reyes (7-0) debutó con furia en la UFC al vencer a Joachim Christensen (14-6) vía TKO a los 29 segundos del 1er asalto. Con una izquierda devastadora “El Devastador” puso fin a la pelea entre Light Heavyweights. En una batalla de mujeres en la división Strawweight; Felice Herrig (13-6) se apuntó un importante y dominante triunfo por decisión unánime 30-26, 30-26 y 29-27) ante Justine Kish (6-1) para posicionarse rumbo a una pelea titular. Herrig dominó con su buena lucha y takedowns en todos los rounds.

            Tim Boetsch (21-11) derrotó vía TKO a los 46 segundos del 2do asalto a Johny Hendricks (18-7) en batalla de veteranos en la división Middleweight. Boetsch le conectó una patada en la cabeza a Hendricks seguido de un baile de ganchos en el suelo para lograr el TKO. Tim Means (27-8-1-1NC) con su poderosa izquierda se apuntó un triunfo vía decisión unánime 29-28, 29-28 y 29-28 sobre el dominicano Alex García (14-4) en batalla de Welterweights. Con solidas patadas a las piernas y el uso de múltiples ataques, Dennis Siver (23-11-1NC) se llevó la victoria por decisión mayoritaria 28-28, 29-27 y 29-28 sobre la leyenda BJ Penn (16-12-2). Penn lució lento, aunque con buen aire, su ofensiva no fue de impacto sobre Siver. La patadas de Siver a las piernas de Penn fueron devastadoras. Dos veteranos en el ocaso de su carrera dieron una muy buena pelea en la división Featherweight. ¿Quién dijo retiro?

U.S. NATIONALS AND U.S. OPEN JU-JITSU TOURNAMENTS SET FOR 5TH ANNUAL UFC INTERNATIONAL FIGHT WEEK

Las Vegas, Nevada – May 20, 2016 – The United States Ju-Jitsu Organization today announced that the U.S. Nationals and U.S. Open Sport Ju-Jitsu tournament will be held in Las Vegas, Nevada as part of the 5th Annual UFC International Fight Week™, which takes place from Tuesday, July 5 through Sunday, July 10. The competitions will be featured as part of the UFC Fan Expo®, held at the Las Vegas Convention Center from Friday, July 8 through Sunday, July 10.  

There will be three (3) different forms of ju-jitsu competition during the tournaments, for youth ages 13 years old and up, weight and experience.

The foundation of Ju-Jitsu is based on one-on-one competition divided into three parts. For part one, the competitor attempts to score with various strikes, punches and kicks. Part two begins after one competitor grabs the other and they battle for a take-down to the ground. Part three involves submissions such as strangulations, holding and barring / locking of various body joints.

Winners are determined based on the athlete that accumulated the most points throughout the match; however an automatic victory may occur if the competitor received “Ippon” (clean action/full points) during each portion of the contest. 



The Ne-Waza (Brazilian) competitions begin from a standing position and the athletes attempt to secure points with several throwing, take-down, immobilizing techniques, sweeps or submissions. The match can ultimately be won by a submission, but if a submission does not happen, the bout is won by the competitor that has accumulated the most points.

The Duo System is a discipline where teams of two ju-jitsu athletes compete against each other. The teams demonstrate select self-defense maneuvers against a variety of attacks, including strangulations, hit attacks, embraces, chokeholds and weapons.   

TOURNAMENT SCHEDULE OF EVENTS:
Thursday, July 7 – Weigh-ins
Thursday, July 7 – Referee and volunteer meetings
Friday, July 8 – U.S. Nationals (9 a.m. – 5 p.m.)
Saturday, July 9 – U.S. Nationals and U.S. International Open (9 a.m. – 5 p.m.)
Sunday, July 10 – U.S. International Open (9 a.m. – 5 p.m.) (If necessary)

International grand slam points will be earned in any division with more than four countries. Competition rules, tournament and hotel information: http://usjjo.org/2016usjjonationalsopenifw/

UFC’S TOP STRIKERS HEADLINE KNOCKOUT EVENT
AT UNITED CENTER JULY 23

(#1) HOLLY HOLM vs. (#9) VALENTINA SHEVCHENKO
(#2) ANTHONY JOHNSON vs. (#3) GLOVER TEIXEIRA
(#6) EDSON BARBOZA vs. GILBERT MELENDEZ

TICKETS FOR UFC FIGHT NIGHT®HOLM vs. SHEVCHENKO
AT UNITED CENTER ON SALE FRIDAY, MAY 20

Las Vegas – Elite strikers converges on the Windy City as UFC® returns to Chicago for UFC FIGHT NIGHT®: HOLM vs. SHEVCHENKO live on FOX from the United Center. In the main event, Holly Holm, who shocked the world in knocking out the seemingly invincible Ronda Rousey, takes on world class kickboxer and No. 9 women’s bantamweight Valentina ShevchenkoThe co-main event will feature two of the most dangerous light heavyweights in the world as No. 2 Anthony “Rumble” Johnson and No. 3Glover Teixeira collide in a bout that holds major title implications.

A former three-division world champion in boxing, Holm (10-1, fighting out of Albuquerque, N.M.) is widely considered to be the best striker in her division. The former UFC champ has finished seven of her 10 professional fights by knockout, including the aforementioned second-round knockout of Rousey that earned her Performance of the Night honors. Shevchenko (12-2, fighting out of Lima, Peru) possesses lethal striking as well and is a 17-time World Muay Thai and K-1 champion. With the skillset to match Holm on the feet, the 28-year-old also has five submissions to her credit, giving Shevchenko the ability to finish the fight both on the feet or the ground.

In the co-main event, one of the most feared strikers in the entire sport, Johnson (21-5, fighting out of Boca Raton, Fla.) hopes to solidify his spot as next in line for a shot at the winner of the light heavyweight championship bout between Daniel Cormier and Jon Jones, taking place at UFC 200 on July 9. Since returning to the UFC in 2014, “Rumble” is 5-1 with four knockouts, three in the first round. With equally terrifying power in his hands, Teixeira (25-4, fighting out of Danbury, Conn.) is also likely one knockout away from a shot at the 205-pound title. The Brazilian is on a three-fight winning streak that includes two knockouts and a submission, and he’s also a jiu-jitsu black belt with six submission victories to accompany his 16 career knockouts.

In addition, No. 6 lightweight and one of the flashiest knockout artists in the game, Edson Barboza (17-4, fighting out of Nova Friburgo, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) welcomes former title challenger Gilbert Melendez (22-5, fighting out of San Francisco, Calif.) back to the Octagon. Brazil’s Barboza has recorded some of the most impressive knockouts in MMA history, including a spinning heel kick knockout of Terry Etim in 2012 that is widely considered the best of all-time. A champion in almost every promotion he’s fought in, Melendez is a black belt in jiu-jitsu under Cesar Gracie who also happens to have 11 knockouts to go with his slick ground game. The winner of this early “Fight of the Night” contender will take a huge step forward in the stacked lightweight title picture.

Additional bouts include:

HIGH STAKES LIGHTWEIGHT SHOWDOWN SLATED FOR UFC® DEBUT IN SOUTH DAKOTA AS NO. 3 TONY FERGUSON MEETS NO. 9 MICHAEL CHIESA
PLUS:
TIM BOETSCH vs. JOSH SAMMAN

TICKETS FOR UFC FIGHT NIGHT®: FERGUSON vs. CHIESA
AT DENNY SANFORD PREMIER CENTER
ON SALE FRIDAY, MAY 20

Las Vegas – A potential shot at the world title is on the line when UFC® makes its first ever trip to South Dakota. Two rising contenders in the 155-pound division collide when No. 3 Tony Ferguson meets No. 9 Michael Chiesa in the five-round main event of UFC FIGHT NIGHT®: FERGUSON vs. CHIESA at the Denny Sanford PREMIER Center in Sioux Falls on Wednesday, July 13.

Currently riding a seven-fight winning streak, which is tied for the longest in the division, Ferguson (21-3, fighting out of Ventura, Calif.) is on a tear in the lightweight division. With a resume that boasts submission wins over Edson Barboza and Abel Trujillo, “El Cucuy” hopes another impressive win will earn him a crack at UFC gold. Looking to derail those plans is Chiesa (14-2, fighting out of Spokane Valley, Wash.), who has won five of his last six inside the Octagon®. His slick jiu-jitsu pedigree has resulted in five first-round finishes, all in less than three minutes, and a similar statement against Ferguson would send shockwaves throughout the most talent-rich division in the sport.

Also on the card, Tim Boetsch (18-10, fighting out of Sunbury, Pa.) and Josh Samman (12-4, fighting out of Tallahassee, Fla.) clash in a pivotal middleweight bout. Boetsch is veteran of both the UFC light heavyweight and middleweight divisions who uses his veteran savvy to overwhelm his opponents, as seen in his knockout wins over Brad Tavares and Yushin Okami.  “The Barbarian” hopes to once again showcase his brute strength and tenacity inside the 185-pound division. Meanwhile, Samman looks to match that tenacity and collect his fourth UFC win by finish. His aggressiveness has paid dividends, with 11 of his 12 professional wins coming by way of submission or knockout, including seven in the first-round. With these two ferocious athletes facing off, the fight could end at any moment.

Additional bouts include:
·         No. 12 Louis Smolka (10-1, fighting out of Kapolei, Hawaii) meets Sioux Falls native No. 15 Ben Nguyen (15-5, fighting out of Brisbane, Australia) in a dynamic flyweight battle.
·         Australian veteran Kyle Noke (22-8-1, fighting out of Albuquerque, N.M.) meets Keita Nakamura (31-7-2, 1 NC, fighting out of Tokyo, Japan) in a welterweight clash.
·         Combining for 57 finishes, No. 15 Alexey Oliynyk (50-9-1, fighting out of Moscow, Russia) and Daniel Omielanczuk (18-5-1, 1 NC, fighting out of Warsaw, Poland) collide at heavyweight.
·         An action-packed bout between exciting lightweights will take place, as Scott Holtzman (8-1, fighting out of Knoxville, Tenn.) meets Cody Pfister (12-5-1, fighting out of Boulder, Colo.).
·         Hard hitting light heavyweight Alex Nicholson (6-2, fighting out of Orlando, Fla.) welcomes hometown hero Devin Clark(6-0, fighting out of Sioux Falls, S.D.) to the UFC.
·         Submission artist Rani Yahya (21-8, 1 NC, fighting out of Brasilia, Brazil) collides with undefeated Matthew Lopez (8-0, fighting out of Fullerton, Calif.) in his UFC bantamweight debut.

MINOTAURO NOGUEIRA HEADLINES UFC® HALL OF FAME CLASS OF 2016 AS FIRST INDUCTEE


Las Vegas – UFC® today announced that mixed martial arts (MMA) legend Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira has been named the first inductee for the UFC Hall of Fame class of 2016. The event will take place on Sunday, July 10, at 12 p.m. PT at the Las Vegas Convention Center. The ceremony will close out the UFC Fan Expo® during the final day of the 5th Annual UFC International Fight Week™. The event will also be streamed live and available on-demand exclusively on UFC FIGHT PASS®.

“I’m really excited to announce Minotauro Nogueira as the first inductee of the 2016 UFC Hall of Fame class,” UFC President Dana White said. “Big Nog is a mixed martial arts legend and, as an icon of the sport, we couldn’t think of a more fitting platform to make this announcement then at the record-breaking stadium event in Brazil. Nogueira is a true pioneer and we look forward to celebrating his career with all the fight fans in July at the UFC Fan Expo.”

Nogueira, who was named UFC Brazil Athlete Relations Ambassador for his continued work throughout the country in September of 2015, will enter the UFC Hall of Fame as a Pioneer. The Pioneers era category includes athletes who turned pro before November 17, 2000 (when unified rules were adopted), is a minimum age of 35 or has been retired for one year or more.

Nogueira, whose career spanned 15 years, boasted one of the most successful careers in MMA history. With his first professional fight in 1999, he rose to prominence in Japan with PRIDE Fighting Championship®, becoming a two-time champion and capturing the organization’s first-ever heavyweight title in 2001. 

Upon PRIDE being purchased by an affiliate of Zuffa, LLC in 2007, Nogueira continued his dominance by defeating Tim Sylvia at UFC 81 for the interim UFC heavyweight championship. Nogueira finished his career with an impressive 34-10-1 record, along with a reputation as one of the greatest Brazilian jiu-jitsu artists ever in the heavyweight division, as evidenced by his 22 submission victories.

A pillar in the Rio de Janeiro community, Nogueira operates an Institute along with his twin brother, current UFC athlete Antonio Rogério “Minotouro” Nogueira. Created in 2008, the “Nogueira Brothers Institute” has six locations that train underprivileged children in Brazil, using MMA as a social inclusion tool. Since its inception, the project has contributed to social development by changing the lives of many young people from communities throughout Rio de Janeiro, building exemplary citizenship and overcoming barriers.

Rodrigo and Rogério are also known for their entrepreneurial profiles. The twins own a chain of franchised Team Nogueira gyms, with 33 locations, including a gym in Dubai. In three years, Team Nogueira franchises have reached over 10,000 students.

The remaining inductees of the Class of 2016 will be announced in the coming weeks leading to the landmark UFC® 200: CORMIER vs. JONES 2, on Saturday, July 9 at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
