Man, I don't care if Fedor lost at Bellator 214, he's still the greatest heavyweight MMA fighter of all time.

He's professional record is 38-6-1. His record SHOULD be 38-5-1-1, because one of his "losses" should have been a no-contest. His December 2000 fight against Tsuyoshi Kohsaka ended via doctor stoppage ater just 17 seconds when Fedor was opened up by Kohsaka's elbow. Elbow strikes were illegal, and it was less than half way into the first round, so it CLEARLY should have been ruled a no-contest. But since it was a tournament that had to see a winner advance to the next round, they improperly scored it as a loss for Emelianenko.

He put together an insane win streak of 16 fights, followed up by another win streak of 11 fights.

Just look at his list of victims:

Andrei Arlovski
Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira
[TWICE]
Brett Rogers
Chael Sonnen
Frank Mir
Gary Goodridge
Heath Herring
Hong-Man Choi
Jeff Monson
Kazuyuki Fujita
Kevin Randleman
Mark Coleman
[TWICE]
Matt Lindland
Mark Hunt
Mirko Filipovic
Pedro Rizzo
Renato Sobral
Ricardo Arona
Semmy Schilt
Tim Sylvia

The UFC released former Clan Wars Lightweight Championship challenger
Artem Lobov [13-15-1-1 MMA,2-5 UFC]. Lobov requested his release
and the UFC granted it. He ended his UFC tenure on a 3-fight losing streak.

================================================== ================================================== ===================================



The Nevada State Athletic Commission handed out penalties for the brawl following October's UFC 229
bout between former Cage Rage Featherweight and Lightweight Champion, 2-time UFC Featherweight Champion
and former UFC Lightweight Champion Conor McGregor [21-4 MMA, 9-2 UFC] and 2008 Pankration Atrium
Cup Tournament winner, 2009 M-1 Selection Challenge winner and 2-time UFC Lightweight Champion
Khabib Nurmagomedov [27-0 MMA, 11-0 UFC].


McGregor received a $50,000 fine and a 6-month suspension [retroactive to the date of the incident].
Nurmagomedov received a $500,000 fine and a 9-month suspension [retroactive to the date of the incident].
However, his suspension will be reduced to 6 months provided that he partakes in an anti-bullying public
service announcement, which would first have to be approved by the NSAC.

================================================== ================================================== ===================================



The Nevada State Athletic Commission re-licensed former USKBA Light Heavyweight Champion, 11-time UFC Light

Smith is on a 3-fight win streak, while Jones is virtually undefeated.

Good to see you Frowny! Since my Windows PC crashed, I have to use a live Linux distro [TAILS] to get shit done. Since it's live, I can't save things [aside from the small amount of storage space that I have left on my external drives]. So, I use a basic word processor app to store text and URL's, as this takes up the smallest amount of storage space. Obviously, walls of text can get monotonous, so I break them up with lines. I simply carried that over to some of my MB posts. Sorry to offend your eyesight LOL. Be well homie!

================================================== ================================================== ===================================



UFC President Dana White said that he wants to see Conor McGregor fight Donald Cerrone, and Khabib
Nurmagomedov fight Tony Ferguson. Then, if both Conor and Khabib win, they can rematch. He also said that
there's basically ZERO chance of a Nate Diaz / Conor McGregor rubber match. White went on to address Oscar
De La Hoya, who called him out for a fight. White said that he would fight De La Hoya, but only under MMA rules.


You know, we see the MMA fighters constantly stepping up to answer boxing challenges, but we [almost] never
see the boxing guys step up to fight under MMA rules, because they KNOW that they will get their asses handed to them!



================================================== ================================================== ===================================



UFC heavyweight Adam Wieczorek [10-2 MMA, 2-1 UFC] was arrested Tuesday on suspicion of multiple
crimes, including robbery and drug trafficking. He was one of 10 people detained in Chorzow, Poland
during a raid by anti-terrorism forces following a 2-year investigation into a gang who call themselves the
Psycho Fans.”Comprised of extremist followers of the Ruch Chorzow soccer team, they participated
in a string of crimes from 2013 - 2017. The gang is also accused of random kidnappings, theft, medical fraud
and attacking rival soccer clubs with machetes and clubs!

Former Strikeforce Light Heavyweight Champion, 2013 Bellator Light Heavyweight Tournament winner,
2015 Rizin FF Heavyweight Grand Prix winner and current Bellator fighter Muhammed "King Mo" Lawal
[21-8-0-1 MMA, 10-6 BMMA, 3-1 RFF] will once again be loaned out to Japanese-based RIZIN FF to face
Jiri "Denisa" Prochazka [23-3-1 MMA, 8-1 RFF] for the promotion's inaugural Light Heavyweight
Championship on April 21st in Yokohama, Japan.


This will be a rematch of their December 2015 fight, which saw Lawal win via KO [punches] at 5:09 into the first round.


Lawal is on a 2-fight losing streak, while Prochazka [who has a 4-inch height advantage] is on an impressive 7-fight win streak.


RIZIN FF operates under PRIDE FC rules, which are different than the Unified Rules Of Mixed Martial Arts
and those of Bellator and the UFC, with the main differences being:

All fights consist of a 10-minute opening round, followed by two 5-minute rounds.

Fights are judged on their entirety, not round-by-round.

Kicks and stomps to the head of a grounded opponent are 100% legal.

Elbows to the head are forbidden.

Up-kicks from a grounded opponent are 100% legal.

Slamming or spiking your opponent on their head is 100% legal.

Fighters are allowed to wear wrestling shoes.

Yellow cards are issued to fighters by the referee for stalling and rule violations. Each yellow card is
accompanied by a 10% deduction in the pay of the offending fighter.

2008 Pankration Atrium Cup Tournament winner, 2009 M-1 Selection Challenge winner, 2-time UFC
Lightweight Chamoion and GOAT contender Khabib Nurmagomedov [27-0 MMA, 11-0 UFC] has
declined the Nevada State Athletic Commission's offer to participate in an anti-bullying campaign,
which would have reduced his 9-month suspension to 6 months, following his brawl with former Cage
Warriors Featherweight and Lightweight Champion, 2-time UFC Featherweight Champion and former
UFC Lightweight Champion Conor McGregor [21-4 MMA, 9-2 UFC] and his team, after their UFC 229
bout last October


Khabib said: ď[The NSAC] said to take part in a social campaign . . . the state of Nevada is a place
where they allow drugs, prostitution and gambling. Let them work on themselves [and their own behavior].
There were fighters who didnít fight for two years and didnít have their belts taken for a year and a half.
Iím ready to fight, they were the ones who banned me.Ē


According to Khabib's manager, his next fight will be against former PureCombat Welterweight
Champion, UFC Ultimate Fighter 13 winner and former UFC Lightweight Champion Tony Ferguson
[24-3 MMA, 14-1 UFC]. Khabib has never been defeated in 27 professional fights, while Ferguson is
on an impressive 11-fight win streak and hasn't lost since 2012.

================================================== ================================================== ===================================



A woman named Terri Murray claims that Conor McGregor fathered her one-year-old
daughter Clodagh, and is requesting that he take a paternity test. McGregor, who
is married, denies the claim.


Murray said: ďI donít want his money. I just want to prove he is Clodaghís dad and Iím
not lying. Iím still thinking I shouldnít do this, it is wrong [and] it has got to the point.
Iím living with my mum, on my own, with no job [and] a baby. Iím struggling. It is
harder than I thought it was. I really didnít want to do this. I wish we could have sorted
it out privately. I donít know why he let it come to this.Ē


A report in The Irish Mirror includes several photos of McGregor and Murray together.
The publication also claims to have seen private messages that the pair sent to each other.

================================================== ================================================== ===================================



UFC President Dana White has stripped former UFC Welterweight Champion Colby
Covington [14-1 MMA, 9-1 UFC] of his interim Welterweight Championship.
