Bellator 191 Results & Fight Highlights: Michael McDonald and Valerie Letourneau Win Debuts

(Subscribe to MMAWeekly.com on YouTube)

It was a night of firsts, as UFC veterans Michael McDonald and Valerie Letourneau made their promotional debuts at Bellator 191 on Friday night in Newcastle, England. 

They also each notched their first Bellator victories, both winning hard-fought battles by way of unanimous decision.

“I was happy with the performance. He ate some heavy punches. I hit him hard enough to break my right hand again, so he’s very durable and I expected that from him,” said McDonald. “I think that I have some pretty high accolades for a bantamweight, but I really have no idea how that stacks up to the other guys in my division. We will let this hand heal up and find out soon.”

Following her victory, Letourneau said, “I think experience has taught me to be patient in the fight and to fight smart. You always want to put on a show, but sometimes it can cost you the fight. In my last fight, I didn’t do enough because I was too careful. I wanted to bring all that experience together and make the best of it.”

The promotion is now off for the holidays, returning to action with Bellator 192 on Jan. 20, 2018, in Los Angeles, where Douglas Lima puts his welterweight championship on the line against Rory MacDonald. The card also features Quinton “Rampage” Jackson vs. Chael Sonnen in the first quarterfinal bout of the Bellator Heavyweight Grand Prix.

Dustin Poirier: I owe Eddie Alvarez 'an ass-whooping,' but he knows it's a bad matchup

WINNIPEG – Dustin Poirier is convinced Eddie Alvarez has no interest in fighting him again, but that won’t stop his pursuit of a rematch with the former UFC and Bellator lightweight champion.

Poirier (22-5 MMA, 14-4 UFC) and Alvarez (29-5 MMA, 4-2 UFC) fought to a no-contest at UFC 211 in May. The fight was exciting while it lasted, but then an illegal knee by Alvarez led to a premature ending. “The Diamond” has been asking to run it back ever since.

With Alvarez coming off a win over Justin Gaethje at UFC 218 and Poirier having topped Anthony Pettis at UFC Fight Night 120, Poirier said there’s no better time to do it again.

“He’s the only guy in the top three, four that’s available now,” Poirier said at a fan Q&A prior to Friday’s UFC on FOX 26 weigh-ins. “Everyone is tied up or waiting on Conor McGregor to come back. I’m trying to get a shot at gold. The only way to do that is to beat the top guys. And because I owe him an ass-whooping, let’s be honest.

“A rematch is something that’s fun for me because like I said, I owe Eddie Alvarez a whooping,” he continued. “Same thing with Conor, but I’m not in the chasing rematch business. I’m in the chasing gold business. So whoever has the belt, that’s who I want to fight, honestly.”

Poirier said he doesn’t fully understand the lack of interest in a rematch from his opposing fighter. Alvarez said following his knockout of Gaethje at UFC 218 that he is pursuing a “mega-fight” at 155 pounds, and apparently Poirier doesn’t fit in that category.

Poirier has another theory, though, and it’s quite simple: He feels Alvarez is worried he would take a loss.

“I think him and his team know it’s a bad matchup for him – really, that’s it,” Poirier said. “The guy’s a multiple-time world champion, fought all over the world, fought the best guys in the world for the last 10 years. I used to be a fan of him, as well. I still respect him as a fighter, but as a person and a fan, I’m no longer that. But yeah, I think it’s a bad matchup, and he knows it. He got 10 minutes of it the last fight, found a way to get a no-contest instead of a loss, and he’s trying to move on and not reply, not respond and not even talk about the fight, really.”

Although Alvarez is at the top of Poirier’s hit list, the lightweight contender said he’s not going to wait around forever. He wants it because it would do him wonders in terms of the divisional pecking order, but if Alvarez refuses, Poirier said he’s going to turn his attention elsewhere.

“If he doesn’t take the fight I’d like to fight the winner of Khabib (Nurmagomedov) and Edson (Barboza at UFC 219), but they might get a title shot,” Poirier said. “That’s what I’m saying. The top of the division, it’s at a standstill right now. Until Conor comes back, until Tony (Ferguson) defends. Something’s got to happen.”

n the main event, former welterweight champion Robbie Lawler (28-11 MMA, 13-5 UFC) meets former lightweight champ Rafael dos Anjos (27-9 MMA, 16-7 UFC) in what is expected to be a 170-pound title eliminator. And in the co-main event, featherweight title contender Ricardo Lamas (18-5 MMA, 9-3 UFC) takes on Josh Emmett (12-1 MMA, 3-1 UFC) despite Emmett failing to make weight.

Josh Emmett plots UFC on FOX 26 upset of Ricardo Lamas to complete 'true Rocky story'

WINNIPEG – Josh Emmett knows that most people outside of his friends, family and teammates are picking against him vs. Ricardo Lamas in Saturday’s UFC on FOX 26 co-main event. He’s OK with that, though, because it will just make the upset that much sweeter.

Emmett (12-1 MMA, 3-1 UFC) fights former UFC featherweight title challenger Lamas (18-5 MMA, 9-3 UFC) as an injury replacement on less than one month’s notice after former UFC champ Jose Aldo was removed from the matchup in favor of a UFC 218 title rematch with Max Holloway. That gave the Team Alpha Male product the opportunity of a lifetime, and he plans on making the most of it.

“Biggest opportunity, biggest fight of my life,” Emmett told MMAjunkie at Thursday’s UFC on FOX 26 media day. “These are the opportunities I wanted since I got into the UFC. I’m going to seize the moment. … This is a true Rocky story. It’s just awesome. I’m going to go out there and show people that I belong here.”

UFC on FOX 26 takes place at Bell MTS Place in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. Emmett vs. Lamas co-headlines the FOX-televised main card following prelims on FS1 and UFC Fight Pass.

Ahead of the biggest fight of his career, Emmett is coming off his most significant victory to date. He battered Felipe Arantes to a unanimous decision at UFC Fight Night 118 in October, connecting with a single-round UFC record four knockdowns in the opening frame.

Although Emmett admits he was somewhat angered by his inability to put Arantes away despite repeatedly placing the Brazilian in danger, he did take away some positive lessons from that fight, which he plans to apply vs. Lamas.

“It was definitely disappointing,” Emmett said. “This is the longest I’ve gone without a finish, so I’m definitely due for a finish. Hopefully we’ll see one on Saturday night. I know I have power. I know I have speed. I just have to stay patient and pick my shots, and the knockout will come.”

The UFC featherweight division is loaded with talent, and in the more than five-year history of the weight class, Lamas consistently has held a position near the top of the rankings. Emmett wants to take that spot for himself, and a victory at UFC on FOX 26 would put him well on his way.

“He’s one of the best fighters in the world,” Emmett said. “He has been at the top of the game for his whole career. I just have to go out there and perform, do what I do best and that’s win. If I show up, and I just perform, I can beat him.”

Alex Perez felt 'a lot more pressure' for UFC debut in backyard than for DWCS

Whether it ends up being properly channeled or not, there’s bound to be some measure of nerves as a fighter heads into a UFC debut.

But then there’s Dana White’s Contender Series – an experience in which not only does an athlete have to think about coming out victorious, but also doing it impressively enough to be favored over other winners hoping to earn UFC contracts.

Alex Perez, who competed at UFC Fight Night 123 last week, went through both. So which one was more nerve-racking?

“For the Dana White contender show, I was kind of like, ‘Alright, I’m going to get knocked or knock the guy out. I’m not going to go in there and hold anything back,’” Perez told MMAjunkie Radio. “To be honest, I wasn’t as nervous. Because I was like, ‘I’m going to let everything go. Whatever happens, happens. I know I put everything I had into it.’

“Now when I got into the UFC, in my last fight, I was kind of nervous. Because it’s a bigger stage. Cameras right in front of you the whole time. And I want to win. I need to win. Just because it’s in my backyard. So I was a little bit nervous. But I felt there was a lot more pressure in Fresno then there was in the Dana White (Contender Series).”

It probably helps that, although shows like DWCS and “The Ultimate Fighter” are often platforms for fighters with modest records looking to break into the scene, 25-year-old Perez (19-4 MMA, 1-0 UFC) wasn’t one of those cases. By the time he fought in front of White, he’d already fought under Tachi Palace Fights, RFA and CFFC banners.

Not taking any shortcuts paid off for the battle-tested Perez, who managed to thrive in both occasions. On Week 5 of DWCS, he choked out Kevin Gray to earn a first-round win and a UFC contract. Four months later, his UFC debut saw a similar ending, with Perez locking in an Anaconda choke to get rid of Carls John de Tomas in the second round of a bantamweight encounter.

There was an extra level of stress heading into that one, too, as Perez and de Tomas had originally agreed to a flyweight fight. Concerned about de Tomas’ weight progress, though, the California State Athletic Commission thought it would be best to move the bout up a division. Perez, understandably, wasn’t happy about that.

With that in the past, Perez is now looking into his octagon future. And, despite his own extensive professional record, he has an idea of how he’d like to conduct it given a choice.

“I’d rather fight those guys that are 7-0 than fight a guy that’s had a couple of losses on his record,” Perez said. “Most of the guys who are 7-0 get knockouts quickly and haven’t been the distance. So I like to test those guys in deep waters.”

Naming specific targets, however, Perez offered two that stray a bit from that: “TUF 24” alumni Eric Shelton and Matt Schnell, both of whom carry identical 11-4 pro records. Shelton is 1-2 in the octagon but has most recently beaten Jenel Lausa. Schnell was also off to a 0-2 start, but has bounced beat with a decision over Marco Beltran.

“Those two guys would be the guys I’d want to come after,” Perez said. “If I had a choice, I’d pick one of those two.”

The weigh-ins went down at Bell MTS Place in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. The same venue hosts Saturday’s event, which has a main card on FOX following prelims on FS1 and UFC Fight Pass.

In a bout considered a favorite for “Fight of the Night,” Mike Perry (11-1 MMA, 4-1 UFC) meets Santiago Ponzinibbio (25-3 MMA, 7-2 UFC) in a pivotal matchup of welterweights. When the two men faced off earlier in the week at media day, it was Perry who did all the talking. Perry didn’t do much talking during the ceremonial weigh-ins staredown, but he did some sniffing – yes, sniffing.

What did Perry smell?

“A little bit of estrogen,” he said during the FS1 weigh-ins show. “I smelled some puppy chow. I was getting hungry.”

Tim Elliott feels like UFC 'spit in my face' by not paying full purse after UFC on FOX 26 scratch

if(typeof(jQuery)==”function”){(function($){$.fn.fitVids=function(){}})(jQuery)};

WINNIPEG – Tim Elliott is not happy with his treatment from the UFC following the late scratch of his UFC on FOX 26 bout vs. Pietro Menga.

Elliott (14-8-1 MMA, 3-6 UFC), who hit the 126-pound flyweight limit ahead of Saturday’s event at Bell MTS Place in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, and airs on FOX following prelims on FS1 and UFC Fight Pass, will only receive the “show” portion of his fight purse, according to UFC officials.

That doesn’t sit well with Elliott. He said he’s done everything in his power to be an upstanding member of the UFC roster, and considering Menga (13-0 MMA, 0-0 UFC) caused the fight to be canceled by failing to weigh in, the former 125-pound title challenge is perplexed why he won’t be paid every contracted dollar.

“I’ve taken fights on short notice. I’ve fought highly ranked guys. I fought the No. 1 guy in the world my very first fight in the UFC,” Elliott told MMAjunkie. “I fought Demetrious Johnson for a world title after weighing 162 pounds after getting out of ‘The Ultimate Fighter’ house, making weight four times in four weeks. I feel like I’ve been a company man. I feel like I’ve done everything the UFC has asked. I’ve bent over backwards to try to make a career and be a guy that they can rely on and can count on. Then I fight these unreliable guys.

“The fact of the matter is: The money’s there. They were going to pay him his money. They were going to pay me my money. They had money there for a guy to win and a guy to show. Now that a guy’s not showing up, that money’s nowhere to be found. I don’t understand it.

“It hurts, because I feel like I’ve been a guy that is reliable, that they can count on and a guy that will make weight every time no matter what. I feel like I’ve proven that. I feel like I’m getting spit in my face. I feel like I’m not getting the respect that I deserve. They said that they’ve never gave a fighter who showed up and made weight his ‘show’ and ‘win’ money – but that’s not true. Ian McCall made weight; his opponent did not make weight. Ian McCall got his ‘show’ money; Ian McCall got his ‘win’ money. That’s how it should be.”

Elliott said the situation is particularly frustrating because of all the resources he put into training camp for UFC on FOX 26. He moved to Las Vegas, where he bought a house, and was relying on the funding he would receive from winning, the UFC’s Athlete Outfitting Policy and perhaps a fight-night bonus.

After news broke the fight was off, Elliott received criticism for not agreeing to fight Menga at a catchweight. Elliott said he would have been down for that if Menga approached him with the information he wouldn’t make weight. Elliott had his own trouble cutting down to the necessary limit, he said, but got the job done. Because of that, he has little respect for fighters who can’t do the same.

“I just bought a house in Las Vegas. I have a 2-year-old daughter, and I’m trying to make a career out of this,” Elliott said. “I’m getting older. I’m not the guy who says, ‘I’ll fight anybody, any time.’ Them days are over. There was a time where I was that guy, but I feel like I’ve paid my dues in this sport. I’ve been in the UFC for a while. This is my second stint in the UFC, and it just hurts that the promotion don’t get behind tried and true guys that make weight, that show up, that fight short-notice fights. It’s bull(expletive).

“I’m not going to sign any more fights with guys that have missed weight, guys that have backed out,” he continued. “I’m done with that (expletive). I have a family that relies on me, and they need this money, and I need the money. It’s not all about fighting. Don’t get me wrong, I love to fight. It’s one of my favorite things in the world, but I need to be compensated for my time and for my effort. I spent two months in Las Vegas. It was a super expensive camp. I just bought a house there. It’s pretty (expletive) that they’re going to cut a fighter’s pay in half because someone can’t do their job.”

Elliott’s circumstances aren’t completely negative, though. He said the UFC has already offered him a spot on the UFC 219 card Dec. 30 in Las Vegas, but at this point no opponent has been discussed. He said he’s not trying to get on the UFC’s bad side by being vocal about his lack of payment, because he’s simply speaking out about what he feels is right.

If he can fight at UFC 219, Elliott said he would be happy to do so. However, he said the UFC better offer an opponent who has a squeaky-clean history when it comes to missing weight and fight withdrawals, because otherwise he’s not going to step in the octagon.

“I hope they don’t (get angry with me), because I love fighting in the UFC,” Elliot said. “I take pride in my work. I feel like I’m blessed to have the opportunities that I do. They have. They offered me a quick turnaround Dec. 30. I haven’t heard of an opponent yet, but I’m in. I want to fight. I need the money. But, in the future, I feel like guys should be compensated, or guys should be held accountable for missing weight. That’s not the case. It’s easy for a fan to say, ‘Ah, he’s a (expletive). Oh, he’s not a real fighter.’ They don’t know because they’re not real fighters. They have no clue.”
