Dustin Poirier left is taking on fellow lightweight Michael Johnson in the main event Dustin Poirier vs Michael Johnson The main event between No 7 ranked lightweight Poirier No 10 ranked Johnson promises to be a bout worthy of its place at the top of the billing.
Fury and Triple H were among the guests.
Barber and Cyborg are the only female fighters to start their UFC careers with three consecutive knockout wins. After the fight, Barber called out VanZant, and on Monday she explained the reason for the beef. She has all of the social media and the fans that a lot of people want to see.
They viewed her as, OK, here's a girl who's beautiful, and she's talented, and she's well-spoken, and she has all of these things, and we think she can fight. So they built her up. Well, she didn't hold her end of the deal. But I view it as She doesn't even belong in the position in the UFC that she's in because there are so many other girls out there, like me, who work our butts off, day in and day out, and I would maul her.
So I want to take that from her. We talked about different people, but at the same time, we were also talking about how I'm not afraid to fight any of these girls.
But in terms of fight promotion, he's taught me a lot. Just being able to speak with someone who has that kind of mentality, listening to someone like that talk, I pick up a lot. He isn't closing the door Friday night could not have gone much better for Joe Lauzon. Coming off a year-and-a-half layoff, he thrilled his hometown fans in Boston with a quick, dominant TKO win.
There was just one thing missing from the year-old's performance, from the perspective of Dana White. If the fight does not go well, I promise you'll never hear from me about fighting again.
Lauzon finished Jonathan Pearce in So he , after ending a three-fight losing streak, isn't committing to saying goodbye. White understands the impulse behind that, saying Friday, "When you're talking to a guy who loves to fight like Joe Lauzon loves to fight -- the Chuck Liddells and many, many more in the past that I've dealt with -- it's so hard to walk away.
He might be finished fighting. He might not.
And he does appreciate the UFC's concern. But I'm not percent closing the door. Dillon Danis and boxing? When Tyson Fury popped up during the WWE's debut broadcast of SmackDown on Fox, by all appearances, it seemed, at the outset, to be another in a long line of celebrity cameos.
That changed quickly, though, as a tangle with WWE giant Braun Strowman indicated that Fury might be up for something bigger once he jumped over the barricade, only to be restrained by security guards in the kind of gentle, inoffensive way you see only on WWE TV.
Over the weeks that followed, Fury defied even the boldest of projections by lining up opposite Strowman for a match at WWE's upcoming Crown Jewel event on Oct. Why would Fury risk a once-in-a-lifetime payday in a proposed February rematch against Deontay Wilder?
As Helwani brought up examples of other crossover combat athletes and their alleged paydays with the WWE, Fury countered. But none of the other boxers were the current lineal heavyweight world champion And also, they're not the Gypsy King. The WWE has received criticism for holding shows in the country due to human rights concerns and even had talent bow out of performing there , but Levesque stressed that the WWE's visits to Saudi Arabia are simply about entertaining the fans.
We entertain," he said. It's about going there and entertaining our fan base, and there's millions of our fans there. I go where I have to go.
I'm going over there to put on a show for the fans around the world -- boxing fans and wrestling fans alike.
