UFC Fight Night 105: Lewis vs. Browne

                    Live VIDEO IS UP! 
The UFC returns to Halifax, Nova Scotia, with a decent offering on Fox Sports 1 this Sunday. In the main event, rising talent Derrick Lewis draws Travis Browne in a fight with some real implications for the stagnant heavyweight division. If he wins, Lewis will get a matchup with one of the division's elite. Browne is on the tail end of a bad two-fight losing streak and desperately needs a win to stay relevant. That theme of desperation carries through into the co-main event. Former welterweight champion Johny Hendricks moves up to 185 pounds for the first time and tries to snap a three-fight skid against former Bellator champion Hector Lombard, who has lost two consecutive fights inside the distance. The winner will gain a new lease on life, while the loser could well find himself out of the UFC. The rest of the card features fun matchups and prospects worth watching. Canada's Elias Theodorou takes on Cezar Ferreira in a meeting of The Ultimate Fighter winners with real implications in the wide-open middleweight division. On the preliminary card, the welterweight scrap between Santiago Ponzinibbio and Nordine Taleb should be a barn burner, as should the opening matchup featuring Jack Marshman and Thiago Santos. Keep an eye on debuting Canadian fighters Gavin Tucker and Aiemann Zahabi, both of whom are legitimate talents. Let's take a look at each matchup. UFC Fight Night 105 is all set to go down TONIGHT (Sun., Feb. 19, 2017) from inside Scotiabank Centre in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada, as Ultimate Fighting Championship is headed back to free television with it’s latest FOX Sports 1 offering. In the headlining act, Derrick Lewis will look to earn his sixth straight win in the Heavyweight division as he locks horns against Travis Browne, who is currently riding a two-fight losing streak.

Adrien Broner vs. Adrian Granados: Fight Time, Date, Live Stream

Tonight, one of boxing’s most controversial figures is in action, as Showtime presents Adrien Broner vs. Adrian Granados in the main event of an interesting triple-header. Broner vs. Granados is a fight that may not look like much on paper to the casual boxing fan, but is actually a pretty intriguing match-up. Broner is the favorite at -300, which makes sense given his better resume and quality of opposition, but Granados is a too-easily-overlooked opponent who brings a lot of positives to the table. Expect him to bring the fight to Broner and make the very vocal “Problem” work hard for the win. Also on the broadcast is the return to the ring of Lamont Peterson. A former world champion and top 10 fighter, Peterson has been out of action for 16 months. He takes on David Avenesyan, last seen scoring a win over Shane Mosley last May.

Bellator 172: Fedor vs. Mitrion

                    Live VIDEO IS UP! 
The 2017 NBA All-Star Saturday Night takes place tonight,

edor Emelianenko's debut fight in Bellator was scrapped at the eleventh hour here in San Jose's SAP Center after illness forced Matt Mitrione out this morning. The American, who was due to face the MMA legend from Russia, known as 'The Last Emperor', had acute pain from kidney stones, the Telegraph understands. Mitrione was hospitalised this morning. Mitrione (11-5) is unable to compete at Bellator 172, on the advise of physicians, and as a result, his highly-anticipated matchup with Emelianenko (36-4, 1 NC) was been scratched from tonight’s event. Bellator officials will look to reschedule the fight at a later date. The lightweight bout pitting former STRIKEFORCE champion Josh Thomson (22-8, 1 NC) against former Bellator world title challenger Patricky “Pitbull” (16-8) will now serve as the card’s main event. The fight organisation was offering refunds at the original point of purchase. It was to be one the most highly anticipated heavyweight battles in Bellator MMA history between the legendary Russian fighter Emelianenko (36 wins, 4 loses, 1 no contest), making his debut on the Viacom-owned mixed martial arts franchise, facing Mitrione (record 11 wins, 5 losses). 'The Last Emperor', Fedor, went 28 fights unbeaten between 2001 and 2009 beating a succession of great rivals is the longest reigning heavyweight lineal champion in MMA history, and has a mystique and modesty replaced by a ferocious fighting style once in the combat sports arena. His legacy in the sport and his impact in MMA and been compared to the likes of Muhammad Ali in boxing, Pele in football and Wayne Gretzky in ice hockey. President Putin is a friend and fan, and US President Donald Trump has followed the fighter during his son's promotion of MMA. Fans will have to wait a few months to see him in action. The Telegraph spoke to heavyweight 'King' Mo Lawal at the SAP Center and he said that he would have stepped up to fight Emelianenko.

Roy Jones vs Bobby Gunn Live Now


There has been little to no media coverage of Roy Jones Jr. and Bobby Gunn’s tussle for the vacant WBF cruiserweight title taking place this Friday, Feb. 17, 2017 at the Chase Center, Wilmington, Delaware. But is there any wonder why? On the one hand, you have Jones, arguably one of the greatest fighters to have ever stepped into a ring, and without a doubt, the best boxer of his era. At the height of his powers, Jones, who turned 48 a month ago, was untouchable. Throughout the early 90’s, and up until the early 2000’s, he was king of the hill. During his reign of supremacy, Jones (64-9, 46 KOs) captured world boxing titles at middleweight, super middleweight, light heavyweight and heavyweight. Eventually the rot would set in – in the guise of Antonio Tarver – a second-round knockout defeat to the latter followed two more uninspiring performances from the man once trumpeted as nonpareil by his peers and fans alike. Don’t get me wrong, Jones’ legacy is intact – a lock for IBHOF if there ever was one. Nonetheless, his fall from the lofty heights of his self-made Olympus was, and still is cataclysmic to say the least. Now, in his quest for a fifth divisional (cruiserweight) crown, “RJ” ha However, it’s the manner of his defeats against lower-tier fighters such as Enzo Maccarinelli, Denis Lebedev and Danny Green that rankle deep down in the hearts of most ardent boxing fans. The aforementioned weren’t just losses; they were put on ice-esque bedtime stories losses. Per contra, Gunn who once held the lightly regarded IBA cruiserweight title has a background steeped in bare-knuckle boxing. Currently the heavyweight bare-knuckle champion, Gunn is undefeated with a record of 72-0 (72 KOs). “The Celtic Warrior” also sports a professional boxing ledger of 21 wins (18 Kos), 6 losses, one draw and one no-contest. All the same, the 43-year-old Canadian is 0-3 in his last three outings – defeats to Glen Johnson (UD), James Toney (RTD) and Tomasz Adamek (RTD). Furthermore, Gunn hasn’t fought since the Johnson fight, which was in December of 2013. Bless his soul, but Gunn is going to be out of his depth come fight night. The one and only chance he has of upending Jones is if the latter makes a boxing schoolboy error, which would translate to a punchers chance on Gunn’s side, and a serious attenuation in Jones’ already diminishing skillset on the other. All told, this fight is irrelevant (ish) – two over the hill competitors vying for an inconsequential alphabet strap that carries no weight. In addition, one of these fighters was a killer in his prime, the other, well; his claim to fame is being a bare-knuckle heavyweight champ with an undefeated streak, and a former IBA cruiserweight titleholder to boot. Though, if Gunn were to pull it off, he’ll have another claim to fame – the scalp of Jones. Finally, the (ish) in the irrelevant stems from the fact that who can really begrudge one of boxing’s pound-for-pound greats for chasing his dream of becoming a five-weight world champion? For me, (I don’t know about you guys) this fight, though appa Read more articles by BN Staff FacebookTwitterRedditLinkedInWhatsAppGoogle+PinterestTumblrFlipboardFeedspot followFeedly followShare Don’t miss any action.
