Alistair Overeem is Going to Quit UFC?

For those who have been following Alistair Overeem, there is considerable news from him most recently. A day after the release from the UFC Alistair Overeem finally said goodbye to the company.

Alistair Overeem

Overeem is not a new name in the world of the UFC. He debuted in the UFC promotion back then at UFC 141 in December 2011. At that time, he won over Brock Lesnar.

He stated that his final run had come to the end. It was a huge run for him when looking back at the 10 years of the UFC. For him, it had been an experience of a lifetime. He said huge thank you to the entire UFC staff, the fans, and the fellow fighters under the same flag.

He considered that his career in the UFC was the most relevant one in his entire career path. He also said special thank you to Dana White and Lorenzo Fertitta to make his career in the UFC really possible. At last, in his closing statement, he said “Fighting for all of you has been such an honor”.

Overeem had been fighting for various promotions before finally joining UFC back in 2011. In November 2007, he was the first and only heavyweight champion in Strikeforce history. Back then, he grabbed the victory over Paul Buentello by TKO.

In 2011, UFC purchased Strikeforce. Thanks to that situation, Overeem made his debut with the company.

His first opponent was Brock Lesnar. The “Demolition Man” came up as his nickname after managing to win in the first-round by TKO. Overeem made a jump to the company and it looks like the best decision he ever made in his entire career.

He attempted for the heavyweight title at UFC 203 but he didn’t manage it after losing to Stipe Miocic in the first round. The 40-years old fighter has recently lost to Alexander Volkov in the main event of the UFC Fight Night a month ago.

Overeem has been with the UFC company for nine years. During his career with the respective company, he has posted a 12-8 record with nine wins from KO or TKO. But in his entire MMA fighting career, he has a 47-19 record.

To  confirm his leaving, he stated “The Final Run Has Come to an End”.

He has released the very first statement after saying goodbye to the company.

We are pretty sure that it is a sad news for most Alistair fans. But there will be an end for everything.

Cyril Gane Potential in the UFC Heavyweights

Ciryl Gane has made some movements for the most recent years. The experts have slated him as a rising contender. And it could be a real threat for the existing UFC heavyweights fighters.

Cyril Gane

Fernand Lopez had a good look at Ciryl Gane. And back then, he started to imagine a lot of potential things from Gane. He took a look at the fighter and began to imagine what the respective trainer can do with a guy who has such athletic endeavors. In a short time, Lopez admitted that Gane could be special in the fighting game.

Lopez also confirmed that it was the second time that the most potential champion fighter came through his gym’s entrance and made his mind think wildly. Before Gane, it was Francis Ngannou who had the same auras which stroke the visions of Fernand Lopez.

And what Lopez thought can be something real. As we know, Lopez had turned Ngannou into a beast in the world of MMA.

Just like many other experts said, Game might be lesser than Ngannou. however, we are looking at the fact that Gane indeed has a lot of potential. And without a doubt, he is one of the most renowned UFC fighters in this timeline. He is also a quick learner and very adaptable person. Well, why not?

He started his basketball career at early 20s, which could be pretty late since many professionals started their rodeos long before their early 20s. Although he was not the earlier, he was among the best players in the niche sport. He is agile, quick, and strong. Those could be the transferable variables that make him such an incredible MMA fighter.

Game has such incredible record. In the MMA career, his record is 8-0. amongst it, there is 5-0 record in the UFC alone. With such a striking result, most experts would agree that he is a definite contender for the class.

Game will take on Rozenstruik in the upcoming match. This might be one of the most challenging situations for the fighter because Rozenstruik has been known as the second-hardest puncher in the heavyweight division after Ngannou. One fatal blow to his enemy will be pretty devastating and change the entire game. Game will need to use all of his abilities to win the match.

Gane hadn’t made an appearance in the octagon in a year. Regardless, he stays in shape because he has been training routinely in the gym. There’s a good reason why we seldom see him lately. Most of his bouts are postponed or cancelled.

Adesanya Wants to be the UFC’s GOAT

Recently, we have heard something surprising. The “Next McGregor”, Adesanya has announced his interests to be the UFC’s GOAT – Greatest of All Time. According to the mass medium, he wanted to “change history” in the UFC.

Adesanya Wants to be the UFC’s GOAT

When we look at Israel Adesanya’s point of view, it won’t be surprising that the fighter is willing to do it. Well, so far, he has a 20-0 record in MMA. If he keeps going on, he could be the UFC’s GOAT.

The fighter alone has believed that his final destination is to become the greatest MMA of all time. Of course, it will progress that the fighter should take.

In the upcoming match at UFC 259, on Saturday, he is going to take on Jan Blachowicz in Vegas. The upcoming bout is the UFC’s light heavyweight title match.

In Friday’s interview, Adesanya confirmed that he is going to change the game and change the history.

He stated that he came in here (UFC) just over three years ago and look what he had done so far.and he indeed had a long way to go.

So far, we can’t overlook the fact that Adesanya has such top records. His achievement has confirmed the true potential that is close to the superstars like Conor McGregor.

As claimed by the fighter, the build-up should be happening on the Saturday’s fight. Until then, we are only just speculating about the possible achievement that he can manage. If he manages to win the fight this Saturday, he is one step ahead to be the UFC GOAT.

Adesanya has such great background and origin when it comes to the UFC career. He came to New Zealand from Nigeria with his family at 10-years old. But since then, the surrounding didn’t accept him for who he was. He was bullied by fellow students. Then he decided to learn martial arts to protect himself and family against the bullies.

Then he went to China in his early 20s to advance his set of skills of fighting.

With his achievements so far in the world of UFC, he has quickly responded that he saw himself to be the next McGregor.

For him, the next milestone was inevitable. Adesanya has only been in the UFC since February 2018. Before then, he had been spending his time competing in regional kickboxing matches. But he has found his true passion in the MMA Leagues. With the record standing at 20-0, it is truly fair to take the middleweight crown.

Megan Anderson to take on Amanda Nunes for the Title Shot

For Megan Anderson fans out there, there will be time for the fruition of her rodeos. Megan Anderson has earned the title shot as she is going to take on Amanda Nunes in the co-main event of UFC 259 that will happen soon.

Megan Anderson vs Amanda Nunes

Megan Anderson’s odds to win the fight have been long debated. Some people also speculated that the upcoming bout is going to be the biggest upset in the UFC.

Well, we know how cruel the criticism can be. Although some of the predictions do not favor the fighter much, the Aussie 31-year old fighter has been training hard to prepare for the prestigious bout against the lady legend of the sport. In this co-main event, it can be another huge step for her to have her title shot.

If you are thinking that it seems to go wrong about her matches, you are not alone. Megan Anderson agrees that her fight against Amanda Nunes is a mismatch.

But according to the mag, Megan Anderson didn’t really pay attention to these speculations. She also stated that those folks who didn’t favor her didn’t matter at all since they didn’t know what it was ;like to be in the cage fighting. She wasn’t afraid at all. And she just needs to be confident with her abilities and capabilities to win the fight.

There’s a reason why many believe that it is a mismatch. Amanda Nunes hasn’t ever been losing in seven years. The undefeated record is a real deal to consider. However, it won’t make Anderson back off.  As she stated back then, she was confident that she could match up with the opponent. Anderson has such reach perks that Nunes can hardly match. Anderson is confident that her reach will cause a lot of problems for Nunes.

One thing we should really notice is that Megan Anderson has a 10cm height advantage. That means she will be able to reach Nunes first. Not to mention that the featherweight is the comfort area for Anderson. So, why won’t she stand a chance to win the upcoming bout?

She also said that she felt great physically. She had been training for a while in the great camp to prepare herself for the bout. She feels strongest and fastest right now. All in all, she is in a good spot.

The Possibility of Khabib vs Tony Ferguson Won’t Likely to Take Place

There is a good reason why the UFC lightweight champ Khabib Nurmagomedvoc has been done with the expectation to face Tony Ferguson in any way.

If you have been following the news of the two, you know that this pair has been up and down with tons of possibilities. There are too many attempts that have failed.

UFC 254 is the peak of the impossible since Khabib will defend his 155-pound championship against Justin Gaethje at UFC 254. The bout will take place on October 24, in Yas Island, Abu Dhabi. Before the confirmation of the UFC 254, Khabib organizers have scheduled the fighter to fight against Ferguson in April 2020. In total, UFC has made five attempts in the past five years. And all of these attempts came with zilch results.

The latest attempt was a failure because of the COVID-19 pandemic. And no one can even control that.

As the true fans of the UFC, we could agree that it has been the most difficult plan to execute in the UFC history. In an exclusive interview, Khabib himself stated that the possibility of the fight against Tony Ferguson is over.

For those who are expecting that this bout is happening, you need to stop waiting and embrace the interesting things coming out from the top fighters in the future. Ferguson lost to Gaethje back then, which adds another reason that the fight between Khabib vs Ferguson won’t likely to happen.

Khabib stated that someone was going to beat the strongest person. He added that one day someone must go down and the day would come. That message implied to Tony Ferguson. He added that Tony Ferguson was finished. Just like other fighters. Tony will come back, but eventually he will lose again. Khabib also said that when he took the damage, he would never go the same again.

Ferguson lost through TKO to Gaethje in the fifth round. While Khabib does not see the possibility in preceding the fight with Ferguson, the other sides have different thoughts. Through the formal interviews, UFC president Dana While said that he would book the matchup a sixth time if the factors were rooting. Of course, we would hear great news if the possibility is not over yet.

As long as it is sensible, the bout will likely to happen. But it won’t be likely if Khabib wins in UFC 254. Still, the window of opportunity has never closed.

It Is Highly Possible for Conor McGregor to Get A Fight in the end of 2020

Back then in January 2020, Conor McGregor started the year with the victory against Donald Cerrone. The respective fighter put down his opponent in less than a minute.

Most folks believe that 2020 is going to be the new yearly season for the fighter. But who knew that the pandemic took over all of the sport events. Pandemic has indeed changed everything so that we must hold our willingness to watch Conor on screen a little bit.

But recently, the UFC Officials have made the announcement that there was a high possibility that Conor McGregor would return again at the end of 2020.

In the UFC 256, the officials confirmed that Kamaru Usman had pulled out of the bout against Gilbert Burns. It is because the injury that has yet to be recovered 100%. He needs more time because the impact from the fighting with Jorge Masvidal in the early 2020 has yet to be finished. Currently, the UFC 256 has no headliner to show. It will take place in December 12th.

Many people have been speculating about how the UFC 256 Vacant card will be going on. The UFC 256 seems to have an alternative on the card.

Let’s not forget about the co-main event. In this category, Amanda Nunes will defend her featherweight title against Megan Anderson. It is also possible for the UFC to make this as the main event.

But it is also possible that McGregor will fill the slot. After all, the UFC fans won’t be bothered with the changes of the new main event for the night. The UFC has the tradition to put the championship bouts as the main event of the card. But there’s a possibility that UFC will also make the main event without a title or championship fight. And here is where McGregor enters in the plan of the officials.

This possibility shows up for a good reason. John Kavanagh, McGregor’s coach, implied that McGregor could fill in the main event for the UFC 256 card. Although it was just a cryptic tweet, the public has been open to the possibility as well.

But don’t keep your hope too high yet because the situation of McGregor is still unsure. He has a bunch of plans. Let’s not overlook that he also supposedly took on Manny Pacquiao in the boxing match. The most possible opponent is Dustin Poirier. We know that the possibility of this fighting has been up and down because of several factors. It is highly possible that the UFC 256 card will feature Conor McGregor vs Dustin Poirier.

Prediction of UFC 254 Main Fight from Khabib

The undefeated UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov came up with the prediction on his own. The upcoming UFC 254 is getting near. In the fight card, Khabib will take on the interim champion Justin Gaethje.

This fight card is the most expected match to see this year because it involves the best two fighters in the lightweight division. Experts and fans agree that Gaethje will be the toughest opponent to defeat. Nurmagomedov will need to have a good strategy to make Gaethje down.

But it is indeed true that Khabib only sees the winning sides in him. He would use tons of opportunities to make the victory of the fight. Khabib will do as usual. He would strive for the take downs until attaining his opponent position where he wanted.

In the mass medium, Khabib emphasized that he was going to try wrestling with Gaethje. Obviously, Gaethje will defend the takedowns for a long time. Then, Khabib will try the next attempts, and so on.

But as expected by the UFC fans, it is not only about wrestling. Of course, Khabib will box and kick with Gaethje. The showdown will be the mixture of the wrestling, kick, and box.

Let’s not overlook the fact that Khabib is one of the most prominent grapplers in UFC MMA. The grappling will be one of his aces. But taking down the beast like Gaethje won’t be easy for Khabib. But the word “hard” is far from impossible. With years of experience and ample set of skills, Khabib can use this opportunity to achieve such great results. For Khabib, Gaethje is not someone to look down. He has great defense both up and down. And when Khabib grapples him, and wrestles him, the defense will be tiresome. Both Gaethje and Khabib know how to wrestle and exhaust their opponent’s energy.

Gaethje, on the other hand, has wrestled almost in his entire career. But again, the years of experience are different. So, when they both wrestle on the ground, it will be a tough battle. The one who depletes his energy first will be prone to losing. Gaethje is a good wrestler. It is obvious. But when it comes to the years of experience, one can vouch for Nurmagomedov more.

Gaethje knows how to defend when wrestling. So, it is safe to say that when Khabib takes him to the ground, he would not easily give up. Khabib would attack in the first two rounds.

Khabib predicted that he could gain the victory in the third round. It is because Gaethje’s state is not so good when wrestling with Khabib.

Khabib also emphasized his fight IQ. Khabib stated that he had much better IQ than his opponent. Gaethje is a strong fighter who likes to fight his opponent to the earth. He is savage. But Khabib once again said that his fighting IQ was better than Gaethje.

If things go as Khabib’s plan, then we can see such significant results in the third round of the UFC 254 main fight. I guess we just need to wait to see it by ourselves.

Justin Gaethje Stated that He was after for Khabib’s Submission

Recently, folks have been stunned with the saying from Justin Gaethje. He stated that anybody could go to sleep. In the upcoming UFC 254, he planned to beat Khabib into submission.

The interim of the UFC lightweight champion made this confident statement in the front of reporters. He implied that he would stop Khabib at UFC 254. While it is indeed a bold statement, it is not surprising for the huge number of the UFC fans.

The date is getting closer and closer. On October 24th, we are going to see the moment of truth of UFC 254 that involves the two best fighters in their class: Khabib Nurmagomedov vs Justin Gaethje. The undefeated champion will take on the interim champ in such the most anticipated UFC event this year.

Gaethje recently spoke to the media about his plan on stopping Nurmagomedov. It of course changed how the experts and sport lovers expected to see the big fight in UFC 254. Gaethje also added that he had gathered his confidence and he was sure to be able to make the reigning champion lose in the upcoming big event.

As quoted from the mess medium, his confidence is arguably the biggest factor when paired with the skills set and power he has. Let’s not forget the fact that Gaethje is accompanied by the incredible coach who is ready to help him out.

Gaethje also doesn’t care if he wins or loses. He would try his best to make his family proud and happy with his performance. And the end result does not really matter for him. But when we see his statement like this. It is indeed a huge factor which makes him brave and fearless. It is what makes Gaethje a dangerous opponent for Khabib. And when Gaethje is determined, it is not going to be an easy win for Khabib.

The 28-0 Dagestani indeed has such impeccable records. But this number does not seem to make Gaetjhe intimidated. On the contrary, Gaethje feels boosted. He said “anybody can go to sleep”. It is a bold statement because it implies that Khabib is just like the other fighters who are able to sleep.

For those who have been following Gaethje for a while, you’d agree that this fighter will focus on wrestling until making Khabib submission. He had wrestled his whole life. And he had wrestled tons of opponents in his entire career. It is not surprising that he would just do the same to win over Khabib.

It is safe to assume that we are going to witness the huge part of wrestling in the UFC 254 octagon. And you will never get any other chance like this if not to watch Khabib vs Gaethje in the upcoming UFC 254.

So, Gaethje will look for the opportunity when Khabib touches the mat. He wants to punish him with the wrestling part. Curious for the end result? Don’t miss the opportunity to watch UFC 254. reserve your watching option now!

Khabib Had Been Enough with the Journalist who Asked About His Late Father

There was an awkward UFC experience in the media day interview. The UFC champion Khabib Nurmagomedov snapped at a journalist who was asking about his father during the UFC 254 media day interview.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5GlEKz_3kkg

The media slated the journalist question as impolite. Some folks slated it as insensitive. But to a certain extent, we could agree that asking about someone’s deceased father over the public medium is pretty much inappropriate, no matter what the reason is.

In the upcoming 254, the Russian fighter will defend his UFC lightweight title. The contender of the UFC 254 lightweight title match has been confirmed as Justin Gaethje. The bout will take place in three weeks.

Khabib Nurmagomedov lost his father due to the complications from the Covid-19 diagnosis. The legendary trainer passed away when he was 57 years old. Just like what many other people have known, Abdulmanap Nurmagomedov is a renowned UFC legend. His passing has made the UFC verse mourn. Many UFC fighters and the fans send their condolences for the beloved father of the lightweight titleholder.

We had received this sad news back then in the Summer, but some people still seem to bother Khabib with unpleasant questions. A journalist asked Khabib about the challenges of training without his father. It seemed that the topic really bothered him. Then, he couldn’t hold it anymore and spit it out in front of the journalist.

During the UFC 254 Virtual media day, he said that he didn’t understand why the journalist kept asking him that question. He wondered what the journalist was thinking when asking this sort of question.

“I don’t understand when people ask me “how difficult is it for you to train without your father?” Khabib added.

Well, just like normal people who have just lost his father, it would have been pretty hard for everyone to live their life without their father.

In this case, Khabib was the only natural person. He snapped at someone who impolitely asked him about how he deals after his father’s passing. But we think that Khabib was doing a great thing back then. Although he snapped, he still showed his class as a professional. So, he answered “What do you think; do you have your father? If something happened to him, what do you think, it is going to be difficult for you or easy? I am human too, of course, it is very difficult.”

Khabib didn’t swear or brought that matter up to a worse level.

He could hold his anger and answered the impolite journalist with the most appropriate answer. At least there will be something for the journalist so that they won’t make the same mistake in the future.

On the same day of the interview, Khabib confirmed that the upcoming fight wouldn’t be a chess match. He’d like to finish the bout quickly. So, he’d expect that it could finish in the third or fourth round after making Gaethje tired.
