Cris ‘Cyborg’ Justino said fight vs. Ronda Rousey would be better suited for WWE ring

Current featherweight champion Cris “Cyborg” Justino said that she’d fight Ronda Rousey again, but not in the UFC. “If Ronda is wanting to make the fight for the fans, I would still be willing to give them it,” Justino said on her website Tuesday. “But I think it would be better to take place inside the WWE ring. For her it gets her one step closer to Hollywood and for me it would be another exciting challenge and a chance to test my athletic ability.” Edmond Tarverdyan, Rousey’s trainer, told…

StarCraft Brood War – Larva and Mcgregor

Leaving the cheering arena behind, Im “Larva” Hong-gyu — 6 feet and 250 pounds — lumbers into the press room that seems too small for his size. His hair is dyed brown, slicked back with a side part. His beard is thick but sharp, a full Garibaldi. And he’s wearing mirrored sunglasses. Sure, it’s 9 p.m. and it’s indoors, but he wants to wear those shades. It completes the look. The Conor McGregor look. Hajime “Tokido” Taniguchi continued his momentum from an Evolution Championship Series title into the Brooklyn Beatdown…

Ronda Rousey trainer says 50-50 she fights again

Ronda Rousey’s longtime trainer Edmond Tarverdyan believes there is a “50-50” chance the UFC star ever fights again. Rousey (12-2) has declined to address her fighting future since a one-sided knockout loss to Amanda Nunes at UFC 207 last December. UFC president Dana White has stated he believes it’s unlikely she’ll fight again. Speaking to The MMA Hour on Monday, Tarverdyan admitted Rousey, 30, struggled with injuries in the later part of her career, but did not rule out a comeback. John Locher/AP Photo “It’s going to be her decision,”…

Kamaru Usman continues rise to the top with brutal knockout

After winning his last four UFC fights by judge’s decision, most fans would be forgiven for expecting more of the same from Kamaru Usman on Saturday night. However, Usman showed up to UFC Fight Night with other plans and produced vicious first round knockout against Sergio Moraes, which was exactly what the Nigerian Nightmare needed in order to remind match makers why deserves a top five (or at least top ten) opponent next. After walking out to the Octagon to a song by Nigerian musician Olamide, Usman showed his intent…

It was Rockhold’s first victory since he defeated Chris Weidman at UFC 194 in December 2015 to claim the belt. “I wanted to wait for my timing,” Rockhold said. “I felt if I got my bearings in the second round I would take control no matter where it goes.” Luke Rockhold’s win was his…

Daniel Cormier addresses championship reinstatement, Jon Jones’ failed tests

Daniel Cormier‘s head continued to spin on Friday, two days after the UFC officially reinstated him as its light heavyweight champion. During his two-year title reign, Cormier (19-1) repeatedly said he was an undisputed champion — even though he never technically took the belt from its previous owner, Jon Jones. Cormier said it wasn’t his fault Jones was ineligible to compete. And while Jones was sidelined for various reasons, Cormier won the vacant title in 2015 and defended it against dangerous opponents in Alexander Gustafsson and Anthony Johnson. Under the…
