Paul Felder vs. Al Iaquinta added to UFC 218 in Detroit

(This story was first published at freep.com.)

An 11th fight has been added to UFC 218, which takes place Dec. 2 at Little Caesars Arena in Detroit.

UFC officials told the Free Press on Thursday that lightweight Al Iaquinta will take on Paul Felder as part of the undercard.

Iaquinta (13–3–1 MMA, 8-2 UFC) is coming off a first-round knockout win vs. Diego Sanchez in April. He has won his five most recent UFC fights and has a 9-2 record in UFC-sanctioned fights. The 30-year-old fighter hails from Garden City, New York.

Felder (14-3 MMA, 6-3 UFC), known as “The Irish Dragon,” enters with a 14-3 record, including a recent knockout win in the first round against Stevie Ray in July. The 33-year-old Philadelphia native is 6-3 in UFC fights.

UFC 218 is the first MMA event for theLittle Caesars Arena, but it’s not the first time a UFC fight has originated from the area. “The Motor City” hosted UFC 9 on May 17, 1996, at Cobo Arena, while the Palace of Auburn Hills hosted UFC 123 on Nov. 20, 2010.

With the addition to the card, UFC 218 now includes:

  • Champ Max Holloway vs. Frankie Edgar – for featherweight title

Paul Felder gives Tony Ferguson edge over Kevin Lee at UFC 216 thanks to experience – and crazy

Paul Felder knows a thing or two about fighting top-notch lightweights.

With six UFC wins in the division since arriving on the scene three years ago, Felder (14-3 MMA, 6-3 UFC) has been as active in the weight class as anyone. And now he’s been adding analyst to his MMA resume.

This weekend, Felder will be on the FOX Sports desk for pre- and post-fight shows for UFC 216, which takes place Saturday at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

In the main event, Felder will no doubt have his eyes on Tony Ferguson (23-3 MMA, 13-1 UFC) and Kevin Lee (16-2 MMA, 9-2 UFC), who fight for the interim lightweight title. He said he’d love to fight each of them down the road.

“They’re both world-class guys,” Felder told MMAjunkie Radio this week ahead of the fight. “I want to fight them both eventually, so I can’t wait to see them beat the crap out of each other. I don’t know if they’re going to be able to finish each other, to be honest. I think it’s going to be a long, five-round, very competitive fight between those two guys. They’re both super durable, super good cardio, and they’re both talented all around the board.”

Felder said he’s giving Ferguson the edge in the fight – and he said that before he knew Lee was going to struggle to make weight. Lee on Thursday said he had 19 pounds to cut in 24 hours. He showed up to the official weigh-ins today a pound over and was given an hour to make it, which he did.

But Felder believes Ferguson’s experience against the 25-year-old will make the difference.

“I really think the experience edge obviously goes toward Tony, and his unorthodox-ness, his toughness,” he said. “But Kevin Lee, man, he’s made it pretty clear the toughness of Ferguson only means he’s going to take a longer beating. I think those guys are going to put on a show.

“Being through grinding training camps and knowing what it’s like to go 25, 30 minutes with other guys that are on your level, it becomes a mental game. I think that’s where Ferguson really does have an edge in this matchup. I think he’s a little crazy, first of all. And I think that helps in that he’s not afraid to go to war with you.

“… Kevin Lee is super talented. He’s strong, he’s got crazy reach for that division, but I think when you beat up on a guy and maybe he doesn’t go away, we’re going to see a lot about where Kevin Lee’s heart and mental toughness come into play.”

MMA at Joint Base Langley-Eustis: MMAjunkie Radio's trip with Tate, Felder, Covington and Stitch

Whenever the topic of the United States Armed Forces comes up, the first thing that often comes to mind are words like “sacrifice” and “service.” But after recently visiting Joint Base Langley-Eustis (JBLE) in Hampton, Va., with a few UFC fighters and members of the MMA community, those words and titles now carry weight in a way they didn’t before.

The trip started on an early Thursday morning, with a crew of people from all parts of the country convening in a hotel lobby. Led by MMAjunkie Radio hosts George Garcia and Brian “Goze” Garcia, retired ex-UFC champion Miesha Tate, UFC fighters Paul Felder and Colby Covington, as well as legendary cutman Stitch Duran, also joined the adventure to come.

Wasting no time, Operations Officer Carl Cook of the 633rd Force Support Squadron made sure we got off on the right foot.

Engagement skills training facility

Starting off in Fort Eustis, we began the tour by seeing the Army side of JBLE.

As the title “Joint Base” indicates, JBLE represents both Langley Air Force Base and Fort Eustis. Officially coming together and becoming operational in 2010, JBLE is one of 12 joint bases in the U.S.

Incorporating state-of-the-art technology, the armed forces can now train much more efficiently and safely, even when it comes to high-powered weapons.

Under the watchful eye of experienced trainers, we had the privilege of using the Army’s weapons simulator, firing real guns in a simulated environment.

Similar to an amplified video game, giant screens ran wall to wall, displaying interactive imagery ranging from target practice to specific environmental scenarios. And like children in a candy store, we fawned over what we were shown, eagerly awaiting our turns in line.

Thankfully, the soldiers and staff could not have been any more patient and polite and assisted us every step of the way.

U.S. Army Transportation School

Despite having “Army” in the title, the U.S. Army Transportation School trains all departments of the military.

In fact, many service men and women from both the Navy and Air Force visit this Army facility since it houses some of the top simulation technology. The school even offers access to full-on command rooms, which are capable of running a whole team of students through simulations, recreating every last detail and feel of operations from a ship deck.

Specializing in mobile support, they provide simulations for all forms of transportation and support duties, ranging from multiple ship types, construction cranes and even forklifts.

Keeping with the spirit of video games, we again witnessed the current shift in technologies and how the Armed Forces were embracing this new age by implementing it into their training systems.

As someone who used to drive a forklift, I was amazed at how accurate they could recreate the experience. Not only can the program manufacture the feel of operating the machinery, but it also simulates the feel of outside elements like wind, snow and sleet, all with the click of a button.

Courtesy of Felder, my forklift tasks were cut short when my route was suddenly struck by gale-force winds and heavy snow, spinning my vehicle off the road. Fortunately, it was just a simulation. I can only imagine what the expenses would be without programs like these.

Paul Felder would fight Mairbek Taisumov next – he's just not going overseas to do it

jQuery.extend( window._usmgOptions,{ scriptUrl: “https://s2.wp.com/wp-content/themes/vip/usatoday-plugins/api-galleries/assets”, analyticsCallback: “galleryAnalytics”, fullscreenUrl: “http://mmajunkie.com/sigallery/xbuGFeFh9XdFg9YUWpHpAS/271833”, customAnalytics: true, title: “Felder def. Ray”, feedsrc: 2 } );(typeof _usdpgw == “undefined”) ? _usdpgw = new _usdpGalleryWall(window._usmgOptions) : _usdpgw.start();

Paul Felder heard the fan enthusiasm for a showdown with fellow UFC lightweight striking stud Mairbek Taisumov following the Russian’s recent knockout victory at UFC Fight Night 115.

Felder (14-3 MMA, 6-3 UFC) said he’s completely on board. However, there’s a catch involved. “The Irish Dragon,” who makes his commentary debut for the UFC on Saturday at UFC Fight Night 116 in Pittsburgh, has gone out-of-country to Scotland, Canada and Brazil for his past three fights.

According to Felder, he wants a home game next. That could be a problem for Taisumov (27-5 MMA, 6-1 UFC), who hasn’t fought in the U.S. since July 2011 and may not be able to again because of visa issues.

“I see a lot of people calling for that name,” Felder told MMAjunkie. “It depends on where he wants to fight to be honest. If he can’t fight here in America or something because of visa issues, it’s not going to happen. I’m not looking to go overseas to go to Australia or something like that. That’s just not in the cards right now.

“I just fought three overseas fights, guys in their hometown, guys in their territory. There’s a lot of good USA cards coming up right now, and I would really like to keep it close to home.”

The fan desire for a fight with Taisumov, who starched Felipe Silva in 84 seconds at UFC Fight Night 115 to push his UFC winning and knockout streak to five, is due to the clash of styles with Felder, who is coming off back-to-back first-round knockout wins of his own.

Felder couldn’t speak to exactly what’s going on with Taisumov’s situation, but said it’s either stateside or bust when it comes to that matchup. When it comes to his own wishes, Felder said he wants someone in the 155-pound division with a ranking next to their name.

Being realistic, Felder said a top-five opponent wouldn’t make sense for him at this point, but someone at the lower-end of the top 15 would be logical. With just two fights remaining on his current UFC contract, Felder wants to close out his deal with a splash and ensure he sets himself up to negotiate for more profitable, high-profile fights going forward.

“I’m kind of in a weird spot because it’s two big wins that I’m coming off of, but a lot of the top 10, top 15 guys are booked up or they don’t necessarily want to take a guy that’s unranked yet,” Felder said. “I’m still waiting to hear. Maybe a veteran name, someone who has a ton of fights who could give me a push without having to take on somebody that’s way above me yet. I’m nearing the end of my contract, too, so I just want to – you never take it safe by any means, but I’m not necessarily looking to fight a super-ranked, top-five guy where I’m at right now.

“I think I have a couple more fights in me before I really start pushing for high-ranked guys. The top 15 would for sure be nice if possible.”

Paul Felder discusses Saturday's commentary-booth debut at UFC Fight Night 116

The UFC’s fifth event in Pennsylvania takes place Saturday when UFC Fight Night 116 goes down from PPG Paints Arena in Pittsburgh, and it’ll featured the UFC commentary-booth debut of a current UFC fighter.

The card airs on FS1 following an early prelim on UFC Fight Pass, and it features a middleweight headliner between former UFC champion Luke Rockhold (15-3 MMA, 5-2 UFC) and former two-division WSOF champion David Branch (21-3 MMA, 3-2 UFC).

MMAjunkie today confirmed with a FOX Sports official that UFC lightweight Paul Felder (14-3 MMA, 6-3 UFC) will call the opening four main-card fights from cageside alongside Jon Anik and former UFC bantamweight champion Dominick Cruz (22-2 MMA, 5-1 UFC).

Analysts for Saturday’s UFC Fight Night 116 weigh-in show on FS1, as well as Saturday’s pre- and post-events shows, will be former multi-time UFC title challenger Kenny Florian and retired UFC veteran Yves Edwards. Karyn Bryant serves as the anchor for the programs while Heidi Androl is set to conduct backstage interviews.

Felder, a nine-fight UFC veteran who is coming off a first-round knockout win over Stevie Ray at UFC Fight Night 113 in July, will join the UFC commentary team for the first time after a run in the booth during Dana White’s Contender Series events on UFC Fight Pass. He told MMAjunkie in an exclusive interview that he’s ready for the platform but doesn’t want to intrude on the chemistry of the existing commentary team.

“I want to play my role,” Felder said. “I’m the new guy on the block. I definitely don’t want go get in there my first time and step on Dominick’s shoes or Jon’s shoes and get in their way. These guys are veterans, and they’re pros, so when they need my analysis or need my opinion, they’ll get it.”

Felder will call four of the six main-card fights, with the exception of the night’s main event between Rockhold and Branch and the co-headliner between Thiago Alves (22-11 MMA, 14-8 UFC) and Mike Perry (10-1 MMA, 3-1 UFC).

“The Irish Dragon” said he’s familiar with the talent that will appear at the event, which is a welcomed change of pace from lesser-know fighters competing on local shows and DWCS.

“Most of these guys, almost 95 percent of them, I’ve seen fight before,” Felder said. “I know who they are. That’s actually a first. At CFFC and the Contender Series, these guys are virtually unknown. … It will actually be nice to talk about fighters who I’ve actually seen fight a ton of times.”

The UFC Fight Night 116 lineup includes:

MAIN CARD (FS1, 10 p.m. ET)

  • Luke Rockhold vs. David Branch
  • Thiago Alves vs. Mike Perry
  • Hector Lombard vs. Anthony Smith
  • Gregor Gillespie vs. Jason Gonzalez
  • Sergio Moraes vs. Kamaru Usman
  • Zu Anyanwu vs. Justin Ledet

PRELIMINARY CARD (FS1, 8 p.m. ET)

  • Tony Martin vs. Olivier Aubin-Mercier
  • Anthony Hamilton vs. Daniel Spitz
  • Uriah Hall vs. Krzysztof Jotko
  • Felipe Arantes vs. Luke Sanders

PRELIMINARY CARD (UFC FIGHT PASS, 7:30 p.m. ET)

  • Gilbert Burns vs. Jason Saggo

Street-fight story: How calling Paul Felder a 'Bobby Flay wannabe' led to a smashed nose

http://link.brightcove.com/services/player/bcpid4621179066001?bckey=AQ~~,AAAABvaL8JE~,ufBHq_I6FnxR-PQW_F3sm5QdUbP7D6E9&bctid=5541175898001

An MMAjunkie Radio tradition is to ask fighters about memorable street-fighting encounters. UFC lightweight Paul Felder offered up a good one during a recent in-studio appearance.

“One of my favorites was I was in college,” Felder told MMAjunkie Radio. “We were at a graduation party for the class ahead of me, and we were hanging out. This one girl brought this total d-bag. He thought, ‘These guys are all ‘actors,” not knowing I’d been doing martial arts as a little kid.”

Felder (14-3 MMA, 6-3 UFC), who’s coming off a first-round knockout of Stevie Ray at UFC Fight Night 113 in July and has been keeping busy as a commentator for the Dana White’s Contender Series in Las Vegas, went on to describe his encounter with the “total d-bag.”

“He calls me a Bobby Flay wannabe,” Felder said. “I was in the kitchen with one of my friends making microwave pizzas. He goes outside. I follow him out. Really long story short: He’s staring at me, and I was like, ‘Are you going to do something about it or just stare at me?’

“He comes running up, goes to throw a right hand … Guy throws a punch, I clinch him, and I smashed this dude’s face in so bad with knees.”

Watch the video above to hear Felder recount the fight, which at the time had him convinced he would land in jail – but instead ended in an apology.

UFC globetrotter Paul Felder wants U.S. fight (and Kevin Lee or Al Iaquinta would do fine)

http://link.brightcove.com/services/player/bcpid4621179066001?bckey=AQ~~,AAAABvaL8JE~,ufBHq_I6FnxR-PQW_F3sm5QdUbP7D6E9&bctid=5529111960001

UFC lightweight Paul Felder’s most recent octagon outings involved trips to Brazil, Canada and Scotland. They also involved, respectively, meeting a Brazilian, a Canadian and a Scotsman.

With that in mind, one can see where Felder (14-3 MMA, 6-3 UFC)  is coming from with this simple request for his next fight.

“I would like to fight in the United States, and there are quite a few cards coming up,” Felder told MMAjunkie Radio. “These Japan cards and all – they’re a little soon. As cool as that would be – I’d go there as a guest fighter. But right now I want to fight on my own country.”

In fairness, Felder should have a few goodwill chips stored with the promotion at this point. Not only is he coming off big back-to-back wins – both involving first-round elbow brutality – but he’s also proven to be valuable outside of the cage, with his current role as an analyst for Dana White’s Contender Series.

Fresh off his “Performance of the Night” knockout of Stevie Ray at last month’s UFC Fight Night 113 event, Felder said he’s healthy and somewhat ready to go. The only thing, he says, is the weight – which the lightweight estimates currently sits at around 190 pounds.

With that in mind, he’s eyeing a return between October and December – though, in his typical company man fashion, he could find a way to be ready before should an opportunity arise. And he’s not even making too many demands when it comes to that.

“I’d love a top-15 guy, but I’m not pushing that so much as I just want another exciting fight and another win,” Felder said. “I’m nearing the end of this contract, so a good win puts me in good standing with the UFC to get another big contract coming out and keep going.”

As far as those possible opponents go, Felder is not going around issuing callouts. Mostly, he’s interested in fighters who, like him, have a penchant for exciting striking battles. While he would love to acquiesce to some fan requests, like a meeting with lightweight contender Kevin Lee, he’s also realistic.

“Knowing rankings – I’m not even in the top 15 yet to be getting a shot with a guy like Lee would be – I’d take it, but it would be crazy,” Felder said.

He does have one stylistic dream fight, though. And, should it somehow materialize at UFC 217, set for Nov. 4 in New York City, “The Irish Dragon” probably wouldn’t be mad.

“That fight alone is a fight that I would love to have, with (Al Iaquinta),” Felder said. “Most of the time, any time I’m matched up people are like, ‘This going to be fight of the night.’

“Can you imagine if me and him got matched up at Madison Square Garden? Listen up, UFC. Let’s do it.”

Another scenario that Felder is very comfortable with is UFC 218, which takes place Dec. 2 at Little Caesars Arena in Detroit. That would fit well within his desire to get a fight near his Philadelphia home grounds.

But ultimately, when it comes to Felder, it seems like there’s very little that can’t be negotiated.

“If they gave me like a co-main event, main event overseas, I’m all about it,” Felder said. “I want to be kind of putting my name out there and taking these big spots. I’ll take a main event. I’d love a five-round fight with somebody. I don’t care if it’s literally in their kitchen. I’ll take it. I want to fight five rounds for the UFC before I retire.”
