Andrei Arlovski: Overeem Injures Everyone He Trains With

Posted on August 20, 2014, 10:42 AM by Buster Evans
  According to "The Pit Bull", "The Demolition Man" is literally trying to demolish his training partners. UFC heavyweight Alistair Overeem has developed a bad reputation for hurting his sparring partners over the last year after multiple fighters have emerged with injuries after training with the Dutch national. "The Reem" left the Blackzillian camp earlier this year after it was claimed he intentionally hurt teammate Guto Inocente in training. That was all washed under the rug when he became a member...

Former Bellator middleweight champion Hector Lombard had a rude awakening when he joined the UFC back in 2012, losing a split decision to Tim Boetsch and ending a six-year & 25-fight unbeaten streak. A follow up KO win over Rousimar Palhares was a short lived victory, as he was once again decisioned, this time by Yushin “Thunder” Okami. Putting together his first two fight streak for the UFC, “Lightning” went on to KO Nate Marquardt and batter Jake Shields over three rounds at...

Video: UFN 47 Fight Motion Highlights

Posted on August 20, 2014, 04:13 AM by Buster Evans
This weekend's (August 16, 2014) UFC card didn't have a lot of hype behind it originally with it's fairly mediocre lineup. However, the event played out to be one of the most exciting in recent months, proving that you don't always need big names for quality fights. UFC Fight Night 47 took place at the Cross Insurance Center in Bangor, Maine. The headliner featured a clash of light-heavyweights as TUF 10 winner Ryan Bader took on Ovince St. Preux. The co-main event saw lightweights Ross Pearson and Gray Maynard...

The previously discussed UFC 178 bout between Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone and Eddie Alvarez was thought to be only a rumor when it was announced that the surging Cerrone would take on rising lightweight Bobby “King” Green in the co-main event of the Sept. 27 card from Las Vegas. But newly signed Bellator president Scott Coker kept saying he was in talks to get Bellator champion Alvarez released from his deal, and today, he delivered on that promise. Speculation immediately shifted as to...

Former UFC lightweight champion Benson Henderson will attempt to take his tenth win inside the Octagon this weekend when he meets the highly-skilled Rafael Dos Anjos in the main event of UFC Fight Night 49. If he's able to win on Saturday, it will mark his third-straight win over a top lightweight. Just prior to that he lost his 155 pound strap to the division's current champion, and Henderson's arch-nemisis; Anthony "Showtime" Pettis. It's clear "Smooth" is one of the top fighters in the weight class but...

After much speculation that Bellator lightweight champion Eddie Alvarez was headed to the UFC to battle Donald Cerrone at September 27’s UFC 178, the promotion has done what former CEO Bjorn Rebney promised but did not deliver and unconditionally released the fighter from his contract. Alvarez was famously left out of action for the majority of 2013 while his messy contract situation was worked out with Bellator. Rebney was supposedly going to let Alvarez walk, but a loophole in the contract wording...

Recently signed Bellator stars Melvin Manhoef and Paul Daley could well be on a collision course. “No Mercy” is currently scheduled to face Doug “The Rhino” Marshall in his BMMA debut, at Bellator 125, and “Semtex” is yet to be booked to face anyone as he prepares for a September BAMMA bout opposite Igor Fernandes. Speaking with The MMA Hour, Bellator president Scott Coker says that the bout between Manhoef and Daley would make sense: "Paul, pending his September 12th fight...
