As expected, Rampage vs. King Mo has been added to Bellator's PPV show on 5/17 in Memphis. Alvarez-Chandler III headlines it.
Apparently the post-fight presser is live. I've watched the Dodge Ram commercial approximately 76 times but can't access it.
Manuwa: "I feel I can fight any fighter in the world and will go against whoever they match me up against next.” (2/2)
Manuwa: “I feel fine. I don’t remember going out and then all of the sudden the fight was over so that was confusing." (1/2)
"Jon Jones, I want my title shot again. I'm right here. Whenever you want, man. Whenever you want." - Gustafsson
A knee, uppercuts and a finishing blow on the ground for Gus. Bring on the title shot. #UFCFightNight
Alexander Gustafsson knocks out Jimi Manuwa in the second round. #UFCFightNightLondon
Manuwa doesn't look overwhelmed by the moment but can he go 5? We know Gus can. 10-9 Gustafsson on ground work. #UFCFightNightLondon
I thought we established in the leadup to the Jones fight that Gustafsson's reach was 81.5 inches? #UFCFightNightLondon
Anyone picking Manuwa here? Odds have Gustafsson -550. #UFCFightNightLondon
Michael Johnson def. Melvin Guillard via unanimous decision (30-27, 30-27, 29-28). #UFCFightNightLondon
I think this broadcast crew has done a generally good job, but I don't get how a win over Gustafsson should = Ryan Bader for Manuwa.
Essentially, One Punch beats Two Tap on four takedowns. #UFCFightNightLondon
Good showing from Neil Seery on short notice. Pickett's wrestling was so important for him winning. #UFCFightNightLondon
Nice self-effacing moment from Hardy on #UFCFightNight. Gooden: "Who said Brits can't wrestle?" Hardy: "I think they were talking about me."
Brad Pickett vs. Neil Seery up now at #UFCFightNightLondon. Seery a late replacement, so Pickett is a huge -1000 favorite.
Gunnar Nelson def. Omari Akhmedov via guillotine choke submission, Rd. 1. You know you're badass when you dominate a Dagestani like that.
Gunnar Nelson vs. Omari Akhmedov kicking off the #UFCFightNightLondon main card now.
I keep reading & hearing this is a no-win situation for Gustafsson. If he wins he gets a title shot. That's the exact opposite of no-win.
By the way, Thiago Silva was finally released from jail today. He didn't get out last night despite best efforts from his legal team.
UFC Fight Night London undercard ends with a choke/crank win for Ilir Latifi over Cyrille Diabate. Main card begins at 3 pm ET.
Louis Gaudinot opens the action with a quick guillotine over Phil Harris. Just 73 seconds for the tap. #UFCFightNightLondon
#UFCFightNightLondon is live now with the undercard on FightPass.
That was a badass finish, Dantas.
I know I'm late to the party here but I just saw the finish of the Volkov-Holata fight, and allow me to say, WTF?!? Explanation, anyone?
Davey Grant vs. Roland Delorme off tomorrow's
card after it's discovered Grant tore his meniscus a couple days back.
At UFC 171, welterweight division begins life without GSP

UFC main event weigh-in results: Jimi Manuwa (205) vs. Alexander Gustafsson (204). #UFCFightNightLondon
Tyron Woodley sounds off on Diaz, MacDonald: 'I think they're smoking the same bag of weed'
CSAC: "This [WADA] standard is so high that it is an effective ban except under the most extreme circumstances."
The California state athletic commission says it has a ban on TRT TUEs until it enacts rules that meet WADA standards on TUE's. (1/2)
I have to admit, I am so fascinated by Robbie Lawler. Something about a guy who quietly crosses 2 generations and still succeeds.
Woodley says he thinks it's comical Rory & Diaz both think they have No. 1 contender status. "I think they share the same bag of weed."
Condit says he'd still like to do the rematch at some point in the future.
Carlos Condit confirms that prior to getting Woodley fight he was offered a bout with Nick Diaz, which he accepted.
Gustafsson & Manuwa, two quiet assassins fighting under the radar
Unnoticed info from Cain Velasquez's new movie: It'll be directed by Ralphie from "A Christmas Story" (who also had crushing ground & pound)
Vitor Belfort isn't likely to keep his drug test results secret for long. Here's why:
Sad to hear of the death of EFC Africa fighter Booto Guylain at only 29 years old. Rest in peace.

Attention, guy whose job it is to change the receipt paper at the gas pump: it's out. It's always out.
So how many of you psychopaths stayed up all night to watch the UFC Macao show?
Rampage and King Mo go all pro wrestling promo in the cage. I did like Rampage's "I'm a monster!" line. Rest of it was eh.
Rampage Jackson flatlines Christian M'Pumbu in the first round. M'Pumbu KO'd for the first time in 25 fight career.
Bjorn Rebney announces Chandler-Alvarez III will take place on PPV on May 17.
King Mo Lawal beats Mikhail Zayats 30-27 across but gets drowned in boos at the decision. Rough.
You can't handle those Connecticut boys. Nice arena shot of Bessette's win being announced on the Bellator show.
A couple fans had asked me why the Diego Sanchez-Miles Jury fight was missing off the UFC 171 page. Just an error I'm told. Fight's still on
