TICKETS FOR UFC FIGHT NIGHT ON ESPN®: NGANNOU vs. VELASQUEZ 
AT TALKING STICK RESORT ARENA GO ON SALE FRIDAY, JAN. 4

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.)

#Knockeando Resultados de UFC Fight Night 95 y 96...entre otras notas

Knockeando: UFC Fight Night 95: Cyborg vs Lansberg
Por Daniel “Mr. Clutch” Mercado Castro
            Cris Cyborg (17-1-1NC) se sigue acercando a la faja de mujeres de UFC al destrozar a Lina Lansberg (6-2) a los 2:29 del segundo asalto vía TKO ante sobre 8 mil fanáticos en el Ginásio Nilson Nelson en Brasilia, Brasil. La batalla fue a un peso pautado de 140 libras, algo que podría ser un problema para Cyborg si quiere reinar en el Bantamweight. Cyborg usó fuertes rodillazos al cuerpo de Lansberg para ir moliéndola en el primer asalto. La pelea llegó a su fin cuando Cyborg descargó su furia a golpes ante Lansberg sin parar hasta que el árbitro detuvo la pelea. Lansberg salió con la cara ensangrentada mientras Cyborg estaba ready para otro encuentro. ¿Quién dice Cyborg vs Rousey?
            Renan Barao (36-4-1NC) vuelve hacer ruido en la división Featherweight al vencer al peligroso Phillipe Nover (12-7-1) vía decisión unánime (29-28, 29-28 y 30-27). Barao dominó en el piso y con su striking a Nover básicamente toda la pelea. Veremos si Barao vuelve a la discusión por la faja luego de lucir frente a su gente en la semi-estelar del Main Card. Roy “Big Country” Nelson (23-13) no le dio ni un minuto de break al brasileño Antonio “Big Foot” Silva 19-10-1NC) al propinarle una fuerte derecha que lo mando al suelo y que luego remató con par de palos en el suelo. Nelson se molestó con el árbitro por no parar la pelea antes luego de la fuerte derecha. La batalla de pesos pesados se terminó a los 4:10 del segundo asalto. Nelson está ready para una oportunidad a la faja de los pesos pesados. ¿Cuándo?
            En una batalla de Lightweight, Francisco Trinaldo (21-4) se apuntó su 7ma victoria al hilo al vencer a Paul Felder (12-3) por TKO a los 2:25 del 3er asalto cuando el doctor paró la pelea por una bestial cortadura arriba de su ojo derecho. Eric Spicely (9-2) dio el palo de la noche al vencer vía sumisión con un Rear Naked Choke a Thiago Santos (13-5) a los 2:58 del primer asalto. Spicely desde el primer segundo veló a Santos para rendirlo y cuando surgió la oportunidad no perdió la misma. Spicely y Vicente Luque ganaron los bonos de $50 mil dólares por Performance of the Night. Los bonos de $50 mil dólares por el Fight of the Night se lo llevaron Erick Silva y Luan Chagas. Godofredo Pepey (14-4) derrotó vía sumisión con un Rear Naked Choke a los 3:03 del 1er asalto a Mike De La Torre (14-6-1NC).
            En las batallas preliminares del cartel; Michael Prazeres derrotó a Gilbert Burns por decisión unánime (30-27,30-27 y 30-27), Rani Yahya venció a Michinori Tanaka por decisión unánime (29-28, 29-28 y 29-28), Jussier Formiga derrotó a Dustin Ortiz por decisión unánime (30-27, 29-27 y 29-28), Erick Silva venció a Luan Chagas por sumisión con un Rear Naked Choke a los 3:57 del 3er asalto, Alan Patrick derrotó a Stevie Ray por decisión unánime (29-28, 29-28 y 30-27), Vicente Luque venció a Héctor Urbina vía KO al minuto del primer asalto y Gregor Gillespie derrotó a Glaico Franca por decisión unánime (29-27, 29-27 y 29-27).

WHAT’S ON THE MINDS OF THE STARS OF
UFC® FIGHT NIGHT: LINEKER vs. DODSON?

Portland, Ore. – UFC® returns to “The City of Roses” for the first time since 2009 on Saturday night. Here is what the stars of UFC FIGHT NIGHT®: LINEKER vs. DODSON had to say leading up to their bouts:

John Lineker – “I am a fan of John Dodson! I will try not to hurt him too bad.”

John Dodson – “The fight against Lineker is going to be one-sided, me moving around and hitting him a lot and Lineker is going to be swinging and missing. Poor dude. I’m going to knock him out, hopefully in the first round. If it goes any longer than that, he’s going to get really tired and it’s going to be a really boring fight.”

Will Brooks – “This fight with Alex will play out the same way it usually does for me. I’m going to go out there and out class him in every aspect of MMA and keep my winning streak going. He’s very loose and athletic when he competes, so that poses a few threats because you never know what he’ll do next. But, it’s also a weakness because he doesn’t fight with a plan or a purpose. After I win this fight, I’m looking to the winner of the (Michael) Johnson vs. Khabib fight. If I don’t get that fight, I’ll just look for anyone at the front of the line.”

Alex Oliveira – “He (Brooks) will try to grab me, but I am not going to let him. I will knock him out. I am sure that Will is trying to establish himself in the UFC, but it won’t be off of beating me.”

UFC® BRINGS POWERFUL LINEUP FOR DEBUT IN NEW YORK CITY WITH THREE 
WORLD TITLE BOUTS
030285_205_CantWait_PRHeader7 (003)
(C) EDDIE ALVAREZ vs. (C) CONOR McGREGOR
(C) TYRON WOODLEY vs. (#2) STEPHEN THOMPSON
(C) JOANNA JEDRZEJCZYK vs. (#2) KAROLINA KOWALKIEWICZ

TICKETS FOR UFC® 205: ALVAREZ vs. McGREGOR
AT MADISON SQUARE GARDEN IN NEW YORK CITY
ON SALE FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 30

Las Vegas — For the first time in company history, the Octagon® lands in New York on Saturday, November 12. The historic Madison Square Garden will play host to the highly anticipated event and UFC® is bringing no shortage of star power to celebrate, as UFC® 205: ALVAREZ vs. McGREGOR plays host to three world titles bouts, featuring four current champions, including Eddie AlvarezConor McGregorTyron Woodley andJoanna Jedrzejczyk.
Philadelphia’s Alvarez (28-4, fighting out of Philadelphia, Penn.) will make a short trip to the “Big Apple” for his first title defense against Irish phenom and featherweight champion McGregor (20-3, fighting out of Dublin, Ireland). Coming off a first round knockout of Rafael Dos Anjos, coupled with his championship caliber wrestling, Alvarez is the complete package. The 32-year-old finisher has 17 wins by knockout and five by submission and is looking to prove that he is the best fighter in the world with a win over one of the most popular and talented athletes in the sport while “The Notorious” one looks to become the first athlete in UFC history to hold belts simultaneously in two different weight classes. Already sitting atop the featherweight division and the No. 4 ranked pound-for-pound fighter in the world, McGregor is no stranger to making history and he hopes to do so once again in New York City.
In the co-main event, the welterweight world title will be on the line as Woodley (16-3, fighting out of St. Louis, Mo.) clashes with No. 2 ranked Thompson (13-1, fighting out of Simpsonville, S.C.). Woodley possesses one-punch knockout power and is coming off a first round finish of former champion Robbie Lawler. A two-time NCAA Div. 1 All-American wrestler, Woodley is one of the most well-rounded athletes in MMA. Thompson is riding a seven-fight winning streak that has seen him finish four of those bouts via knockout. “Wonderboy” is a world champion kickboxer with a perfect 57-0 record, including more than 40 knockouts. Not likely to go the distance, this bout is an early contender for Fight of the Night.
Polish pride will be overflowing when strawweight champion Jedrzejczyk (12-0, fighting out of Olsztyn, Poland) looks for her fourth consecutive title defense against fellow Poland native Kowalkiewicz (10-0, fighting out of Lodz, Poland). Both women sport perfect records and look to leave The Garden with that “0” intact. Jedrzejczyk is widely considered to be amongst the top strikers in MMA, using her crisp, quick punches to keep her opponents at bay. Currently the No. 8-ranked pound-for-pound fighter in the world, the champion may have finally found her match in the striking department. Kowalkiewicz is also a Muay Thai champion and she uses that skillset to pick apart her opponents. With three first round finishes, Kowalkiewicz has finishing power in both her hands and in her jiu-jitsu attack.
Additional bouts:
