Boxers looking for fights

Fighters looking for fights?

EFP releases website designed to assist fighters, coaches and managers to find fights. The site www.explosivefights.com has a simple concept. With fighters constantly looking for fights this website can serve as a go to spot to easily “bid” for a fight. After a very easy sign up a fighter can login and bid. After the bid is submitted a member of the promotion will contact them and continue the process as is typically done. “It’s an easy to use tool for fighters, coaches and managers to reach promotions and get fights booked quickly and efficiently,” said  EFP Spokesperson Alicea McMichael. “This will provide another resource to help fill fight cards and improve both the fighter and customer experience at boxing Events.”

The website has the ability to feature Pro Boxing, Amateur Boxing and Kickboxing Events.

 

 

Trading Shots: With the hype heating up, will fans come around to Bisping vs. GSP?

The UFC hype machine is kicking into high gear to sell a UFC 217 main event that was booked amid a wave of apparent fan apathy, but can the case for “The Count” vs. GSP convince fans to put aside their concerns and get out their credit cards? Retired WEC and UFC fighter Danny Downes joins MMAjunkie columnist Ben Fowlkes to discuss.

Downes: No UFC event this weekend Ben, but that gives us time to get excited about the next big fight. And that is (*checks schedule*) Georges St-Pierre vs. Michael Bisping?

The promotion for their UFC 217 match is in full force as the two participated in the ceremonial puck drop for this weekend’s game between the Montreal Canadiens and Toronto Maple Leafs. They’ve also been speaking to the media with the expected results: St-Pierre is “super focused,” while Bisping works his shtick as the unlikable Englishman.

Seeing that this is the middleweight title fight that nobody (save for GSP or Bisping) actually wanted, can any promotion get you excited for it? I know the fever pitch surrounding a fight doesn’t usually kick in until fight week itself, but do you think that will happen this time around?

Fowlkes: You don’t think people are starting to get excited about this fight? I mean, OK, they don’t want to admit it. It’s not cool to say that you’re hyped about Bisping vs. GSP. It feels like admitting that you’re looking forward to a big, dumb action movie. The fight feels like a sinister plan to get in our wallets, which it is.

But what are you going to do? Are you seriously going to not watch this event, which comes with two additional title fights, both of which are solidly #wouldwatch affairs, just because you’re resentful of a nonsense headliner that seems like something a piece of marketing software came up with?

Plus, have you actually watched these two together? GSP doesn’t even have to do anything. He just smiles and plays the nice guy and lets Bisping carry the promotional load, which he does with a perfect, sneering efficiency.

Seriously, watch him here. You’re telling me you don’t want to see that guy get punched in the face? And if you don’t, it can only be because you actually want to see him do what he claims he’ll do. Point is, there’s no way to be indifferent about a person like that, and that’s promotional gold.

Are you really not into this fight, despite or possibly even for all its stupidity? Or would you just feel like too easy mark for admitting it?

Downes: What happened to you, Ben? Have the years been so unkind that now your standards are degrading faster than the cartilage in your joints?

First off, your #wouldwatch standard doesn’t mean anything. You’ve admitted that you’d watch any number of freak show fights. Just because you say you’ll watch something, that does not mean it’s quality.

I’ve watched more episodes of “House Hunters” than I’d care to admit. That doesn’t mean the show isn’t formulaic, scripted and predictable. I’ve seen the movie “Gymkata” multiple times. Maybe that means it should win an Academy Award?

Secondly, disliking Bisping and wanting to see him get punched in the face does not mean you should like every one of his fights. There are plenty of unlikable fighters in MMA. If we use Ben Fowlkes logic, that means every one of them is a must-see fight! What if there’s a fighter that we really like and don’t want to see get punched in the face? I guess that means he or she is always in a bad fight?

Does Bisping know how to push people’s buttons? Absolutely. Throughout his career he’s been able to create a buzz and make himself relevant even when many were willing to write him off. That being said, the act has worn thin on me.

Bisping is slightly more sincere than Chael Sonnen when it comes to the gimmick, but that’s not saying much. He’s already walked back his “GSP is on steroids” talk when he was on Conan O’Brien. How do you take him seriously now?

I’m all for “fun” fights in general, but nothing exists inside a vacuum. By GSP vs. Bisping going down, the middleweight division is put on hold. MMA may be more carnival than actual sport, but we have to recognize when the pendulum swings too far to the other side.

Do you not see how this title fight represents that? Or did the UFC already send you some talking points you’d like to regurgitate?

Fowlkes: Watch out, everybody. Looks like Danny’s off his meds again. And by meds I mean grapefruit IPAs.

Look, I’m not disagreeing that this is a straight-up cash grab with little to no relevance to the middleweight division. To the contrary, I’m the first one to point out that, the way it stands now, Bisping looks like he’s trying to be the first UFC middleweight champ to avoid defending his belt against any top contenders.

All I’m saying is, this is the fight we have. It’s Bisping vs. St-Pierre, an all-time great MMA heel against an all-time great MMA fighter. And what makes this bout even more weirdly compelling in a way I hate to admit that I like? It’s that the welterweight GOAT is probably going to lose. Bisping probably is going to beat him up, just like he says, at which point he’ll be able to walk around calling everybody “buddeh” as he points out that he beat both Anderson Silva and GSP, the two greats of his era.

Or maybe he doesn’t. Maybe St-Pierre comes charging back after all this time and takes the title that most of us thought Bisping would never win in the first place, and which he’s only managed to defend once, just barely, against a senior citizen who nearly knocked him stiff.

Those stakes are good enough for me, I’m sorry to say. Would I rather see a middleweight champ against a middleweight contender? Sure. Will I still regard Robert Whittaker as the top 185-pounder after this, regardless of the outcome? Probably.

But am I going to boycott a bizarrely interesting fight and miss Cody Garbrandt-T.J. Dillashaw and Joanna “Champion” vs. “Thug Rose” just for spite? No way. And, once you get enough craft beers in you to be honest with yourself, I think you’ll be able to admit that you’re not about to miss it either.

Germaine de Randamie Cleared for UFC Comeback

Former UFC featherweight champion Germaine de Randamie is on the mend and poised for a comeback.

de Randamie claimed the inaugural featherweight title by defeating Holly Holm in a controversial decision at UFC 208, which was marred by punches thrown after the bell by the Dutch fighter after both the second and third rounds.

There was further controversy when de Randamie refused to put her belt on the line against Cris “Cyborg” Justino. de Randamie said that she didn’t want to fight Cyborg because of her repeated anti-doping violations. The UFC in turn stripped de Randamie of the belt for her refusal to fight.

Germaine de RandamieShe was then slated to make her return to bantamweight in a fight with Marion Reneau in September, but had to withdraw due to trouble with a lingering hand injury. The hand injury also affected de Randamie following her title fight win over Holm in February before she was stripped of the belt.

After having to withdraw from the fight with Reneau, de Randamie opted for surgery in early September.

After several weeks on the sidelines, de Randamie announced that she is finally on the road to recovery and cleared for her return.

“Got the best news today (which feels like it’s been forever)!” de Randamie wrote on Instagram on Thursday. “Got green light from my doctor to start training again.”

Though she didn’t give a timeline, de Randamie can now get back to work and intends on returning to the Octagon.

“More determined than ever before. I’m combing back strong, faster, and more hungry than ever before.”

Finally, a Mike Perry 'highlight' video that captures his full bro-tastic essence

Filed under: Blue Corner, Featured Videos, News, UFC, Videos

What would you say if I told you that for the low, low price of 12 minutes out of your life, you could come to a fuller understanding of UFC welterweight Mike Perry that is both hilarious and yet somehow weirdly insightful?

You’d probably say that the cost is still too high, but you’d be wrong. Because if you don’t watch this video, how else will you find out that Perry’s squat workout apparently includes getting kicked in the gut by his girlfriend between reps?

First, let’s state the obvious. Whoever put this video together (and that someone seems to be “Super Fights” on YouTube) really dug deep for source material. Not only do we see highlights from some of Perry’s most violent moments in the cage, but we also see him in the gym, looking immensely proud of himself as he flips a baseball cap in the air and then catches it on his head.

And then there are the quotes. My god, the quotes. For instance:

– “I don’t intend any harm with my words, only my hands when they step in that cage with me and they shut that door and they double my paycheck when I hurt them.”

– “I think I’m the guy that’s going to be the first dude to kill somebody in the UFC.”

– “I’m kind of an (expletive). I just like to mess with people. If we’re going to get in there and try to kill each other, I’m going to talk (expletive). I’m going to let ’em know. (Expletive) ’em.”

– “I have a really strong face.”

– “Put this out there: I got off probation the same day as Jon Jones.”

– “Nah, I don’t eat chips. Well, I guess when I’m not on weight cut I like Doritos.”

This video highlights the overflowing ridiculousness of a fighter like Perry (11-1 MMA, 4-1 UFC), who next meets Santiago Ponzinibbio (25-3 MMA, 7-2 UFC) on Dec. 16 at UFC on FOX 26, but it also somehow makes you like him. Or, well, at least you’re glad to have him around.

A fighter with face tattoos who talks about his punching power like it is no less formidable than a thunderbolt from the hand of Zeus himself? A guy who not only says this stuff, but really seems to believe it? A guy who appears to have a Velcro board with the faces of all the UFC welterweights, in order of their ranking, so that he might more effectively visualize his rise in the division? That’s a guy you’re going to want to keep an eye on.

With some careful editing and questionable sound effect choices, this masterful video brings the full bro-tastic Perry experience to the viewing public. It also might end up as evidence of premeditation if he does succeed in killing someone inside the octagon.

Jim Wallhead out at UFC Fight Night 118, promotion seeks new foe for Warlley Alves

British vet “Judo” Jim Wallhead (29-11 MMA, 0-2 UFC) has been forced to withdraw from next week’s UFC Fight Night 118 event, and matchmakers are seeking a new opponent for Warlley Alves (10-2 MMA, 4-2 UFC).

MMAjunkie today confirmed the Wallhead injury with UFC officials.

Featuring a headlining contest between Donald Cerrone and Darren Till, UFC Fight Night 118 takes place Saturday at Ergo Arena in Gdansk, Poland. The entire card streams on UFC Fight Pass.

Alves, 26, was the middleweight winner of “The Ultimate Fighter: Brazil 3,” though he immediately returned to the welterweight division for his next three contests, where he earned victories over Alan Jouban, Nordine Taleb and Colby Covington. However, Alves has struggled in his past two outings, suffering losses to Bryan Barberena and Kamaru Usman and now finds himself looking to break a two-fight losing streak.

Meanwhile, Wallhead, 37, is a longtime veteran of the European scene, competing professionally since 2005 and earning notable career wins over the likes of Igor Araujo, Che Mills, Frank Trigg and Joey Villasenor, among others. His persistence finally earned a UFC call in late 2016, but he’s since suffered back-to-back losses to Jessin Ayari and Luan Chagas, and was looking at a third shot at picking up a first UFC win.

A timetable for Wallhead’s return was not immediately clear.

With the change to the card, UFC Fight Night 118 currently includes:

MAIN CARD (UFC Fight Pass, 3 p.m. ET)

  • Donald Cerrone vs. Darren Till
  • Jodie Esquibel vs. Karolina Kowalkiewicz
  • Jan Blachowicz vs. Devin Clark
  • Oskar Piechota vs. Jonathan Wilson

PRELIMINARY CARD (UFC Fight Pass, 11:45 a.m. ET )

  • Nasrat Haqparast vs. Marcin Held
  • Anthony Hamilton vs. Adam Wieczorek
  • Brian Kelleher vs. Damian Stasiak
  • Sam Alvey vs. Ramazan Emeev
  • Andre Fili vs. Artem Lobov
  • Warlley Alves vs. opponent TBA
  • Aspen Ladd vs. Lina Lansberg
  • Felipe Arantes vs. Josh Emmett

Georges St-Pierre Fans Slam Michael Bisping at NHL Game

Michael Bisping did not get a warm welcome from Georges St-Pierre‘s Canadian fans.

Everywhere they go, the UFC forces Bisping and St-Pierre to face off for a photo opp, even at the Toronto Maple Leafs and Montreal Canadiens NHL game on Saturday.

Bisping sauntered out to meet UFC president Dana White at center ice at the game on Saturday in Montreal, but was greeted by a chorus of booing Canadian fans. It certainly had to be an uncomfortable moment, but appeared to be one that Bisping relished.

It was obviously quite the opposite for St-Pierre, who received a hero’s welcome from his hometown fans. 

St-Pierre’s fans hammered Bisping, but at least White kept them apart when they came face to face on the ice.

Nikita Krylov challenges Fabio Maldonado to title fight: 'It's either your hands or my feet'

Nikita Krylov and Fabio Maldonado squaring off in the cage with a belt on the line? It won’t be in the octagon, but it might happen.

After a Fight Nights Global 77 starching of Emanuel Newton earned Krylov his second straight win since leaving the UFC, he took to the mic to issue a challenge. It was a simple, straightforward one – directed at a fellow UFC vet who happens to have recently earned the vacant FNG light heavyweight title.

“I have one thing to say – and this is: Fabio Maldonado, I challenge you to a title fight,” Krylov said. “This will be a stand-up fight. It’s either your hands or my feet. Let’s see who’s better” (via Twitter):

Krylov was the protagonist of one of the most talked-about UFC departures earlier this year. Before a first-round submission loss to Mirka Cirkunov in the octagon, the 24-year-old was riding a five-fight winning streak and was highly regarded as top talent in an otherwise shallow division.

Krylov (22-5) is ranked No. 11 in the latest USA TODAY Sports/MMAjunkie MMA light heavyweight rankings and said it was his decision to part ways with the promotion.  Maldonado (24-11), in turn, was on a two-fight skid before the UFC cut him loose – having lost three of his last four octagon outings.

The Brazilian heavy hitter has also been enjoying some success outside the octagon, though. While Maldonado did go on a two-fight skid immediately after leaving, one of the losses was a highly controversial call against heavyweight legend Fedor Emelianenko.

Maldonado has also been on a two-fight, two-finish streak, which includes his first submission win in more than seven years: a guillotine choke that earned him the belt over Kurban Omarov.

Does Conor McGregor Have the Grim Reaper Coming for Him?

All signs are starting to point to a future showdown between UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor and interim titleholder Tony Ferguson, but “El Cucuy” isn’t leaving anything to chance. He has ramped up his trash talk in an attempt to ensure that McGregor can’t walk away from the fight.

Although McGregor is the first UFC fighter to have held belts simultaneously in two divisions, he has never defended one. He unified his interim featherweight title by defeating then-featherweight-champion Jose Aldo at UFC 194, but he never put the featherweight title on the line before capturing the lightweight title. After defeating Eddie Alvarez for the lightweight strap, McGregor was forced to relinquish the featherweight title.

It has been nearly a year since he defeated Alvarez, but his only fight has been his boxing spectacle with Floyd Mayweather. 

Tony Ferguson UFC 216 and Conor McGregorHe is, however, expected to return to the Octagon for his next fight. Ferguson became the interim champ by defeating Kevin Lee at UFC 216, and he is doing everything in his power to make sure that he is the man that McGregor will be fighting next.

“That paper champion is all paper man. He talked his way to the title. He’s talked his way into a whole lot,” Ferguson told TMZ Sports recently.

“My high IQ and my fight IQ are way too much for this guy. I’m way too much for him. I’ve saved a lot of my A+ material for him.”

TRENDING > CM Punk Back in Camp; Looking for a Fight

Ferguson went on to say that he believes that McGregor is running scared from him; that the Irishman watched him defeat Lee and now has cold feet.

“Not only did he watch the fight, he was sitting there on his yacht, drinking a beer, saying holy (expletive), I’ve got the boogeyman on my (expletive) tail. The Grim Reaper is coming for my ass! That’s what he’s saying. I have his number.”

Eddie Alvarez talks 'TUF 26' gripe with Lauren Murphy – and lack of heat with Justin Gaethje

if(typeof(jQuery)==”function”){(function($){$.fn.fitVids=function(){}})(jQuery)};
jwplayer(‘jwplayer_JjDtMIyx_FLu19iir_div’).setup(

Filed under: News, Radio Highlight, UFC, Videos

Eddie Alvarez has no qualms with fellow “The Ultimate Fighter 26” coach Justin Gaethje, who he thinks is a “hell of a human being.” But that’s not to say his “TUF” stint has been beef-free.

Rather than fellow lightweight Gaethje (18-0 MMA, 1-0 UFC), whom he’s set to meet at UFC 218, Alvarez (28-5 MMA, 3-2 UFC) had some drama with “Team Alvarez” team member and UFC flyweight Lauren Murphy. That much was clear on episode No. 5, in which the coach was clearly peeved by Murphy’s decision to not show up for morning practice following a loss to Nicco Montano.

That did take place. But the real reasons for the riff, Alvarez later told MMAjunkie Radio, went far beyond that particular disagreement.

“The story that’s being told in the media is basically: I’m a bad guy because I wanted someone back in the gym immediately after their fight,” Alvarez said. “And that was barely my gripe with that girl, in particular. That was the smalls thing that I didn’t like that was done that she did. I would also have to agree with you guys, to give somebody time off.

“I did want everyone back in the gym just to keep – personally, I did. But that was barely my gripe. My real gripe with that girl was that at that the first day, almost, she conspired against (Sijara Eubanks). Immediately, she was like, ‘We don’t care if ‘Sarj’ is 150 pounds.’ We – she’s speaking for the whole team now. And we just created the team.

“She goes, ‘We don’t care if ‘Sarj’ is 150 pounds. You can put her out first. It’s her fault she’s not prepared.’ So I was like, ‘Wow.’ Coach Marlon (Moraes) came to me and said, ‘Lauren said she don’t care if we put out ‘Sarj.” And this is in the mist of me, Mark and Marlon trying to put together a solid roster and win this thing. So I’m like, ‘No, that ain’t going to happen.’ I understand maybe she feels threatened by ‘Sarj,’ but ‘Sarj’ is on our team.”

And that wasn’t the last time Alvarez was under the impression that Murphy was “conspiring” against her teammates. A few days later, when the bracket went up, he said the flyweight came “in a panic” looking for advice on how to prepare for fellow Team Alvarez member Barb Honchak.

“She starts, ‘Hey, can you help me with a takedown, to take Barb down?’” Alvarez said. “I’m like, ‘Lauren, slow down. You have to fight Team Gaethje first.’ She still hasn’t fought her first fight against Nicco, and she’s already conspired twice or three times against everyone from Team Alvarez.

“I understand it’s Team Lauren Murphy because only one girl can win this, but it’s got to be one step at a time. Let’s beat Team Gaethje. Let’s get to the semifinals. Even then it’s bad to conspire, but let’s conspire then. Let’s take one thing at a time. There was a lot of bad energy, bad vibes when I’m trying to create a team.”

As for the missing practice thing that seemed like such a big deal on TV?

“(Expletive), it was a good thing she missed practice,” Alvarez said. “Her attitude sucked. It was probably a good thing, at the end of the day. I could care less about the practice.”

Talking to MMAFighting.com, Murphy denied conspiring against her teammates, saying Alvarez assumed “I was being an (expletive), because he’s an (expletive), and that’s the way he thinks.” She also blogged about the missed-practice situation, throwing some shade in the process.

“Besides, I’m pretty sure Eddie didn’t go running to the gym the day after Conor McGregor knocked him out so he could help his teammates get ready for their fights,” Murphy wrote (via Twitter):

Although things got rocky with one of his team members, Alvarez had no issues with the man he’s supposed to fight on Dec. 2 at UFC 218. The former UFC and Bellator champion, who’s hopped around promotions throughout his career, had become familiar with ex-WSOF champ Gaethje a few years ago – when he was considering fighting for the organization (now referred at as PFL).

A few months ago, when Gaethje joined the UFC, Alvarez said they shared a friendly conversation. And while it’s common for tempers to flare between rival coaches after a few weeks of competition, Alvarez said the amicable relationship continued throughout taping.

“He’s always been a cool cat,” Alvarez said. “I wish I could bring up some beef for you guys and say I smacked him in the face or I shoved him. But there wasn’t much drama to be told on that level.

“He’s actually a hell of a human being. And he fights like a demon. So it was all good on that level.”

It doesn’t take getting to know Gaethje on a personal level to agree with the “fighting like a demon” bit. After tearing through his competition at his former WSOF home, the aggressive lightweight put on a wild scrap with Michael Johnson to kick off his UFC stint.

While Alvarez has also been known to engage on a few barnburners, he’s also shown he can show some restraint should the occasion call. So which one can we expect to square off against Gaethje?

Well, Alvarez has some encouraging news.

“What I’m trying to do is not let a couple of punches go by before that comes out,” Alvarez said. “I’m going to do a full round in the back, and I’ll be out hot. I’m going to come out of the tunnel hot. And we’re going to get right to it, right from the gate.

“More than jiu-jitsu, striking, boxing, whatever aspect of this game you want to talk about. More than anything, that’s the aspect I’ve been working on. If I can explain it, just not giving a (expletive). That’s what I’m working on.”
