Carlos Condit considering retirement after loss to Robbie Lawler at UFC 195

There are some losses that just sting a bit more.
For Carlos Condit, coming up short against Robbie Lawler at last night's (Sat. Jan. 2, 2016) UFC 195 pay-per-view (PPV) event in Las Vegas, Nevada, was one of those defeats.
"I did (think I won). It was close though. It didn't go my way tonight, but I left it all in there and fought my ass off. So, I'm disappointed but I am proud of my performance," he said during the post-fight press conference (video replay here).

Diaz calls out Conor McGregor on national TV

What a performance by Nate Diaz! He dismantled Michael Johnson at UFC on Fox17, and then calls out Conor McGregor on live TV. Diaz is no stranger to the “Talking” game as he is known to be unpredicatable and usually backs it up in the Octagon. See below what he has to say about McGregor.


  • Former STRIKEFORCE welterweight champion and 10th-ranked Tarec Saffiedine (15-4, fighting out of Temecula, Calif.) returns to the Octagon to face veteran Jake Ellenberger (30-10, fighting out of Lake Forest, Calif.), a staple in the 170-pound division.
  • New Jersey’s own George Sullivan (17-4, 1NC, fighting out of Belmar, N.J.) and Alexander Yakovlev (22-6-1, fighting out of Fairfield, N.J.) battle it out in a welterweight bout.
  • In an exciting bantamweight matchup, Alex “Bruce Leeroy” Caceres (10-8, 1NC, fighting out of Miami, Fla.) takes on The Ultimate Fighter Latin America Season 1 prospect Masio Fullen (10-5, fighting out of San Diego, Calif.).
  • Looking for his fourth straight UFC win, lightweight Olivier Aubin-Mercier (8-1, fighting out of Montreal, Quebec, Canada) meets The Ultimate Fighter Brazil Season 4 standout Joaquim Silva (8-1, fighting out of Goiania, Goias, Brazil).
  • Submission specialist Tony Martin (9-3, fighting out of Minneapolis, Minn.) faces UFC newcomer Felipe Olivieri (14-4, fighting out of Rio de Janeiro) in a lightweight bout.

UFC Fight Night: #2 Johnson Vs. #4 Bader

Las Vegas – With title implications on the line, much is at stake when top light heavyweights Anthony “Rumble” Johnson and Ryan Bader collide in the five-round main event of UFC FIGHT NIGHT® on Saturday, Jan. 30 at Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey. This event, which marks UFC’s seventh trip to “Gateway City”, will broadcast live on FOX.
With a potent mix of speed and power, (No.2) Rumble (20-5, fighting out of Boca Raton, Fla.) poses a serious threat for anyone in the 205-pound division. Boasting a record with 14 knockouts and victories over top contenders in Jimi Manuwa, Alexander Gustafsson, Antonio Rogerio Nogueira and Phil Davis, the former title contender is looking for another chance to challenge for championship gold.

Standing in his way, is fourth-ranked Bader (21-4, fighting out of Tempe, Ariz.), who is out to prove he is deserving of a title shot after reeling off five straight wins.  With a resume that includes victories over former UFC light heavyweight champion Rashad Evans, Davis, Ovince Saint Preux, Rampage Jackson and Nogueira, the 2x Division I All-American wrestler is just one win away from contending for the UFC light heavyweight strap.

Plus, former UFC heavyweight champion and sixth-ranked Josh Barnett (34-7, fighting out of Fullerton, Calif.) goes head-to-head with the always-formidable (No.8) Ben Rothwell (35-9, fighting out of Kenosha, Wisc.) in the co-main event. With 37 knockout and 23 submission victories shared, this bout is unlikely to go the distance.

Prestige FC adds two exciting fights for March 12th event in Regina SK

Prestige FC, the hottest mixed martial arts show in Canada, continues to stack its phenomenal second event lineup with two additional bouts making their way to the main card.
In a much-anticipated return to action, high-end prospect Mariusz “The Iron Pol” Ksiazkiewicz (4-0) will take on slick submission specialist “Mitey” Micah Brakefield (7-6). Also added on is a welterweight clash pitting Sheldon Leblanc (3-1) against American invader Andrew Perez (3-2).
Prestige FC 2: Queen City Coronation presented by 104.9 The Wolf takes place on Saturday, March 12th inside the George Reed Auditorium at The Orr Centre in Regina, Saskatchewan. The event airs live on The Fight Network and Access 7.
“We set our sights on making Queen City Coronation the best fight card fans will see in Canada in 2016 and it is happening in a big way,” said Cord Crowthers, CEO & Matchmaker for Prestige FC.
“There are a lot of high expectations surrounding Mariusz and he’s going to get a very tough and eager test from Micah. For Sheldon, this is great opportunity to step up in competition and make himself a hot prospect in Canadian MMA. The best part of it all is that the fans are getting an action-packed card loaded with talented and exciting fighters.”

Ksiazkiewicz (Twitter: @IronPolMMA), who fights out of Winnipeg, Manitoba, is back after a hiatus forced upon him by a lack of opponents willing to square-off against him. The 26-year-old, who stands 6-foot-3, has notched three wins via submission – all coming by way of rear-naked choke and two of those coming inside the first round.
Brakefield (Twitter: @micahbrakefield), who is 6-foot-4 and 27 years old, is a sly jiu-jitsu practitioner with all six of his career victories coming via submission and four of those coming inside the opening round. The Burnaby, B.C., product has won two of his last three fights both coming by triangle choke.
After a second-round submission at Prestige FC 1, Leblanc returns to action in his home town of Regina. Leblanc bested Corey Atkinson with a keylock back in October to pick up his third win by submission. Perez is from Tucson, Arizona, and now trains under the guidance of colorful fighter-turned-coach Thomas “Wildman” Denny.
In addition to the new main card bouts, Prestige FC has added Myles Anderson versus Ryan Rohovich in an undercard lightweight tussle.
Prestige FC 2: Queen City Coronation is topped by a showdown for the featherweight title as Kurt “The Hurt” Southern battles Nick “Nyquil” Rhoads.
