Colisee Pepsi workers putting together the arena for tomorrow's UFC TUF Finale show
Had no internet access from arena during weigh-ins, but that Kennedy-Bisping conversation didn't exactly seem heated, huh?
As welterweight division begins anew, Patrick Cote thinks he's primed to make a run:
So apparently there's nothing to Stout-Noons at 170. They met, realized they were at same weight, said we should fight at 170, UFC said yes.
I don't know the exact reason for the switch to 170 for Stout-Noons. Word from UFC is both fighters requested it, which, yes, is kind of odd
The Sam Stout-KJ Noons fight on Wednesday's UFC show will be contested at welterweight instead of original 155 designation.
Dana White announces Rousey vs. Alexis Davis for 7/5. I feel for Cat Zingano losing out again. Would have liked to see them wait for her.
Storm -450. RT
Welp, here it is. Tito Ortiz vs. Alexander Shlemenko. Bellator PPV on May 17.
UFC Abu Dhabi event recap: Roy Nelson's KO of the Year candidate starches BIg Nog; Clay Guida wins big:
Someone asked if UFC would do a PPV in Abu Dhabi, Cook somehow spun that into saying it was a disrespectful question. I don't get that.
UFC's Garry Cook: "It's highly likely this time next year we'll be back" in Abu Dhabi. #UFC
Tonight's attendance 7,963. Last time the UFC was in Abu Dhabi, they scaled it for 11,000. Obviously a very different card though. #UFC
Guida on McGregor: "He doesn't rub me the wrong way. I believe he has all the talent but he hasn't been tested yet." #UFC
Tonight's show a sellout, 7,963: Gate $1.8M. Fight of Night: Guida-Kawajiri. Performance of Night: Nijem & Nelson. #UFC
For the first 9 years and 37 fights of his career, Big Nog was never stopped. He's now been finished in each of his last 5 losses.
Official time of the finish was 3:37 for Nelson in a walkoff KO. Just brutal stuff. #UFC
We're at the point where you have to be worried about Nogueira's future if he continues fighting. I hope he considers retirement. #UFC
Roy Nelson knocks Big Nog unconscious in the first round. Stiff. Oof. #UFC
Clay Guida def. Tatsuya Kawajiri via unanimous decision (30-27 3x) in the #UFC Fight Night main event
Ryan LaFlare def. John Howard via unanimous decision (30-27 3x). Good fight. #UFC
Judge Mark Collett scored Rd 3 of Rosholt fight a 10-8; final score 30-26. Judges Ben Cartlidge & Howard Hughes had 30-27. #UFC
Ryan LaFlare around -425 favorite over John Howard. That seems like a big number vs. a veteran with some decent wins. #UFC
The + money celebrates as Nijems smashes Dariush in a first-round TKO. #UFC
Ramsey Nijem vs. Beneil Dariush kicks off the #UFC Abu Dhabi main card now. Odds have Dariush favored around -250.
Alexander Gustafsson: "I'm just hoping and begging that Jones wins the fight and I get my shot."
Finding dynamic, conditioned heavyweights is practically needle-in-a-haystack stuff. Also, Rosholt def. Omielanczuk via UD. #UFC
UFC announce team has made reference to heat impacting fighters. Even though it's 9:30 pm in Abu Dhabi, still 83 degrees.
Jim Alers def. Alan Omer via split decision (29-28, 29-28, 28-29) #UFC
Bedford hasn't fought in a year so I can understand his frustration, but rein it in a little.
Bedford: "Let's fight right now! ... You were knocked out!" #UFC
Oh, good, they declare Bedford-Yahya a no contest. That is totally fair & just. #UFC
It was a headbutt that knocked out Rani Yahya, but fight will likely be ruled a TKO. #UFC
UFC Abu Dhabi prelims about to kick off now with Johnny Bedford vs. Rani Yahya.
Chris Camozzi vs. Andrew Craig has been scrapped off tomorrow's UFC Abu Dhabi show due to a Craig illness.
Love it. MT

Sign you frequent the wrong neighborhood watering hole: guy at the bar wearing a Super Bowl XXXI sweatshirt. That's 17 years ago!
Rousey would 'bend over backwards' for Gina Carano, but despite catchweight offer, Dana says it's title bout or bust
For Nate Diaz, taking a stand on pay is fair play
Dana on why Rousey-Carano wouldn't be catchweight: "This isn't an exhibition fight. Gina Carano wants to cut the weight & fight for a belt."
Ronda Rousey will apparently be in an upcoming episode of American Idol. I wonder if she can hold a tune?
Dana White: "The growth of this sport isn't slowing down. It's not stagnant in the US or anywhere. It's continuing to explode."
Interesting that the new Gina Carano Under Armour ads refer to her as "MMA Fighter." No mention of "actress." Do they know something?
Flyweights Demetrious Johnson vs. Ali Bagautinov headline UFC 174 in Vancouver, first reported by
& confirmed by UFC.
Are there anymore national championships we can win tomorrow? What a stretch. Congrats, #UConn
Gina Carano, Cris Cyborg & Holly Holm are dominating headlines, but Cat Zingano deserves promised bout w/Ronda Rousey
World Series of Fighting officially announces signing of ex-UFC lightweight Melvin Guillard, says he'll debut in July, opponent TBA.
WE ARE THE CHAMPIONS!!! #UConn
Say what you will about Jake Shields' style, but when it comes to winning, that guy did more with less than anyone in MMA.
After health scare, rough patch, Guida promises thrill: "this guy might go into cardiac arrest when I come after him"
See you Monday night HuskyNation! UCONN pride. #BleedBlue
