Despite his best efforts to return fire with some counter shots, Ivanov just couldn't seem to land his best punches and instead found himself eating straight shots from Dos Santos al ...

As a competitor since the age of five, Chad Mendes probably saw the two-year suspension he received from USADA - after testing positive for the banned substance GHRP-6 that was found in a psoriasis cream he was using - as the athletic equivalent of a death sentence. Or maybe not.“It wasn’t too tough, to be honest,” said Mendes, the longtime featherweight contender who makes his first start since December 2015 on Saturday against Myles Jury. That may seem odd, but as the 33-year-old explains, after three fights in 2015, including a pair of knockout losses to Conor McGregor and ... Read the Full Article Here

Junior Dos Santos looks like one of those people who would be good at anything he tries. And in the time since his last bout against Stipe Miocic in May 2017, the former heavyweight champion has become quite the diaper changer for his son, Bento.“I’m a professional already,” laughs Dos Santos. “I’m almost doing those YouTube videos teaching people how to do it.”Spending time with 16-month-old Bento and his wife Isadora was the bright spot of a rough post-Miocic stretch that saw Dos Santos flagged for a USADA violation and put him on the shelf. But the mega ... Read the Full Article Here

JUNIOR DOS SANTOS VS BLAGOY IVANOVIn action for the first time since his title fight loss to Stipe Miocic in May 2017, former world champion Junior Dos Santos finds himself in Boise, facing a fighter that hardcore fight fans know to be one of the top heavyweights in the game in Blagoy Ivanov. Bulgaria’s Ivanov may be a relative unknown to more mainstream UFC followers, but that obscurity can disappear in a hurry if he can dispatch JDS in his first Octagon bout. And while Ivanov has the tools to do just that, the favorite remains Dos Santos, whose size and reach advantages – and h ... Read the Full Article Here

If you see a towel on the mat in a corner of the Ultimate Fitness gym in Sacramento, steer clear, because Rick Glenn is in town. And fellow UFC featherweight Darren Elkins is probably close by.“We usually do take a corner spot so we’re not crashing into people,” said Glenn of the workout sessions the two Midwestern transplants have among the no-shirt crowd of Team Alpha Male. “I usually have my spot and an extra towel on the mat to clean up all the sweat so we’re not slipping and sliding.

A year after moving to Sacramento to train at Team Alpha Male, Sage Northcutt is on the move again. However, this time he’s not changing camps, but rather weight classes, officially shifting to the welterweight division, where he’ll take on Zak Ottow in the co-main event of this weekend’s UFC Fight Night event in Boise, Idaho.While the young fighter with the sunny disposition has competed inside the Octagon in the 170-pound ranks twice before, neither of those contests gave an accurate portrayal of what Northcutt might be able to do in the division.“This is my first tim ...
