Las Vegas – UFC®‘s next event on ESPN will be headlined by heavyweight contenders’ fight featuring No. 3-ranked Francis Ngannou and returning former champion Cain Velasquez. Also, surging lightweight contenders collide when No. 11-ranked James Vick takes on No. 15 Paul FelderUFC FIGHT NIGHT ON ESPN®: NGANNOU vs. VELASQUEZ will air live from Talking Stick Resort Arena on ESPN and ESPN Deportes at 9 p.m. ET/6 p.m. PT on Sunday, Feb. 17, with the ESPN broadcast prelims kicking off the evening at 7 p.m. ET/4 p.m. PT. Early prelims stream exclusively on ESPN+ at 5:30 p.m. ET/2:30 p.m. PT. Doors open at 4:30 p.m. ET/1:30 p.m. PT.

Known for his spectacular punching power, Ngannou (12-3, fighting out of Las Vegas, Nev. by way of Batié, Cameroon) looks to build on his momentum following a 45-second TKO win over Curtis Blaydes in November. During his UFC run, Ngannou has earned highlight-reel knockouts against Alistair Overeem, Andrei Arlovski and Luis Henrique, and is now poised to re-assert himself as a title threat by taking out one of the greatest heavyweights in UFC history.

A two-time heavyweight champion, Velasquez (14-2, fighting out of San Jose, Calif.) returns from a two-plus year hiatus. A talented grappler and striker, his last outing saw him net a TKO win over Travis Browne at UFC 200. Velazquez has delivered thrilling victories over the course of his legendary career, including wins against Junior Dos Santos (twice), Brock Lesnar and Minotauro Nogueira. He now looks to earn another shot at the title by stopping one of the division’s hardest hitters.

Having won four of his last five outings, Vick (13-2, fighting out of Fort Worth, Tex.) looks to get back on track with a show-stealing victory. Vick has netted impressive stoppage victories against Joseph Duffy, Polo Reyes and Abel Trujillo. He now hopes to derail another surging contender and re-stake his claim as one of the division’s biggest threats.

Known for his devastating elbows, Felder (15-4, fighting out of Philadelphia, Penn.) has asserted himself as one of the division’s most aggressive finishers. Felder has earned Performance of the Night bonuses for his KO wins against Stevie Ray, Alessandro Ricci and Danny Castillo. He aims to continue climbing the ranks by picking up his fourth consecutive lightweight win.

Announced bouts on the card include:
  • No. 5-ranked bantamweight contender Jimmie Rivera (22-2, fighting out of Ramsey, N.J.) looks to work his way back into the title conversation by taking out No. 7 Aljamain Sterling (16-3, fighting out of Uniondale, N.Y.)
  • Phoenix’s own No. 11-ranked women’s strawweight Cortney Casey (8-6, fighting out of Phoenix, Ariz.) intends to put on a show for her hometown fans when she meets No. 12-ranked Cynthia Calvillo (7-1, fighting out of Sacramento, Calif.)
  • Andre Fili (18-6, fighting out of Sacramento, Calif.) looks to bounce back into the win column when he meets Myles Jury (17-3, fighting out of San Diego, Calif.)
  • Fan favorite Alex Caceres (14-11, fighting out of Miami, Fla.) aims to spoil the highly-anticipated UFC debut of Kron Gracie (4-0, fighting out of Los Angeles, Calif.)
  • Welterweight prospect Vicente Luque (14-6-1, fighting out of Brasilia, Brazil) looks to break into the rankings for the first time by taking out hometown favorite Bryan Barberena (13-5, fighting out of Glendale, Ariz.)
  • No.11-ranked women’s flyweight Ashlee Evans-Smith (6-3, fighting out of Santa Ana, Calif.) takes on No.13 Andrea Lee (9-2, fighting out of Shreveport, La.)
  • Former UFC bantamweight champion Renan Barao (34-7, fighting out of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) aims to snap his losing streak when he meets Luke Sanders (13-3, fighting out of Nashville, Tenn.)
  • In a battle of undefeated prospects, Dana White’s Tuesday Night Contender Series signee Benito Lopez (9-0, fighting out of Oroville, Calif.) meets Manny Bermudez (13-0, fighting out of Norwell, Mass.)
  • Scott Holtzman (12-2, fighting out of Knoxville, Tenn.) aims to extend his winning streak to four when he faces battle-tested veteran Nik Lentz (29-9, fighting out of Coconut Creek, Fla.)
  • Former women’s strawweight title challenger Jessica Penne (12-5, fighting out of Huntington Beach, Calif.) looks to start 2019 with a big win by taking out Jodie Esquibel (6-4, fighting out of Albuquerque, N.M.)
  • Alexandra Albu (3-0, fighting out of Moscow, Russia) looks to remain undefeated when she takes on Emily Whitmire (3-2, fighting out of Las Vegas, Nev.)

Resultados de UFC 170


UFC 170
Por Daniel “Mr. Clutch” Mercado Castro

          La nueva cara de la UFC nuevamente retiene su faja Bantamweight bajo una ola de abucheos. Esta vez Ronda Rousey (9-0) no fue abucheada por su actitud, si no porque Herb Dean le concedió un TKO sobre la ex olímpica Sara McMann (7-1) a los 1:06 del primer asalto, cuando paró la pelea luego de un rodillazo al cuerpo. Sin duda que el “stop” vino prematuro, ya que ni le permitió a Ronda ir al ataque para finalizarla ni a Sara incorporarse. Muy mal para ser la estelar del cartel sobre todo con una pelea tan pareja como esta.
          En la semi-estelar y debutando en el peso semi-completo, Daniel Cormier (14-0) destrozo a golpes al sustituto del lesionado Rashad Evans, Patrick Cummins (4-1). Cummins a penas tocó a Cormier, quien se apuntó un rápido triunfo por TKO a los 1:19 del primer asalto. Cormier viene de dominar en los pesos pesados y continua invicto. Rory MacDonald (16-2) dominó a patadas y con excelente defensa de “takedowns” a Demian Maia (18-6) para apuntarse una victoria por decisión unánime (29-28, 29-28 y 29-28). En otra pelea en el peso Wélter, Mike Pyle (26-9-1) venció vía TKO a fuerza de codazos a TJ Waldburger (16-9) a los 4:03 del tercer asalto. Stephen Thompson (9-1) le conectó una devastadora combinación seguida de una ráfaga de golpes para apuntarse un TKO a los 3:43 del primer asalto sobre Robert Whittaker (12-4). Esta pelea también fue en el peso Wélter.   
El Mandalay Bay Events Center en Las Vegas, Nevada también fue la cede de las Peleas Preliminares por Fox Sports 1 antes del Main Card y las Preliminary Card por UFC Fight Pass. Por el UFC Fight Pass se observó que Erik Koch (14-3) venciera por TKO a los 1:24 del primer asalto a Rafaello Oliveira (15-7) y Ernest Chavez (8-0) retuvo su invicto al vencer por decisión divida (29-28, 28-29 y 30-27) a Yosdenis Cedeño (9-3). En las Peleas Preliminares antes del Main Card por Fox Sports 1 se pudo observar cuando Zach Makovsky (17-4) venció por decisión unánime (30-27, 30-27 y 29-28) a Josh Sampo (11-3). Aljamain Sterling (9-0) mantuvo su invicto al vencer por decisión unánime (29-28, 29-28 y 29-28) a Cody Gibson (11-4). Raphael Assuncão (21-4) le quitó el invicto a Pedro Munhoz (10-1) al vencerlo por decisión unánime (30-27, 30-27 y 30-27). Assuncão está invicto (6-0) en el peso Gallo de la UFC. En la estelar de las Preliminares vimos como Alexis Davis (16-5) venció a Jessica Eye (10-2-NC) por decisión dividida (29-28, 28-29 y 29-28) en una pelea sumamente pareja. La división de mujeres sigue cogiendo mucha fuerza en UFC a pesar de que Dana White no la quería.
