Yazmin Jauregui doesn't see UFC champ Zhang Weili being dethroned 'until it's our turn'

Yazmin Jauregui sees the UFC women’s strawweight division finally have some consistency at the top.

The unbeaten prospect doesn’t think the championship will continue to change hands, as has been the case for the category in recent years. In the past four years, the UFC’s 115-pound title has been exchanged five times. The most recent example came earlier this month, when Zhang Weili dethroned Carla Esparza in the co-main event of UFC 281 in New York.

Jauregui (9-0 MMA, 1-0 UFC) feels...

UFC Orlando: Thompson vs. Holland preview - Is Wonderboy shot?

Get the low down on all the main card action of UFC Orlando, topped by longtime elite welterweight Stephen Thompson looking to prove he’s still at the top of his game against the personable Kevin Holland.

Typically, I’m of the opinion the fight with the most title implications of a Fight Night card should be the headliner. Given the heavyweight contest between Tai Tuivasa and Sergei...

Harry Goularte has bail requirements modified to be around minor family members

Harry Goularte is free to change his California residence – and had another major change to his court-ordered bail requirements, a judge ruled Friday.

Goularte, who is accused of child molestation and who was the target of an alleged shooting by former UFC heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez, can change his residence to a different county. He also will be allowed to be around minors during the holiday season – provided the minors are family members, and provided other adults are...

Glover Teixeira predicts Magomed Ankalaev wins at UFC 282, title fight happens before Jiri Prochazka's return

Glover Teixeira still is comfortable with the choices that left him as the odd man out of the UFC 282 vacant light heavyweight title fight, and already can see light at the end of the tunnel.

Teixeira (33-8 MMA, 16-6 UFC) was scheduled to challenge Jiri Prochazka in a title rematch in the Dec. 10 headliner at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, but Prochazka suffered a serious shoulder injury that forced him to vacate the belt. The UFC offered Teixeira a fight against Magomed Ankalaev for the...

Francis Marshall: Marcelo Rojo fight will be striker vs. grappler classic at UFC on ESPN 42

Francis Marshall is expecting a clash of styles against Marcelo Rojo at UFC on ESPN 42.

Marshall (6-0 MMA, 0-0 UFC) meets Rojo (16-9 MMA, 0-2 UFC) at Saturday’s event at Amway Center in Orlando, Fla. The card airs on ESPN and streams on ESPN+.

One of the most highly anticipated preliminary bouts on Saturday’s UFC on ESPN 42 card has been called off.

Both Cortez (10-1 MMA, 4-0 UFC) and Ribas (11-3 MMA, 5-2 UFC) successfully made weight for their matchup, which was slated to take place at Amway Center in Orlando, Fla., and air on ESPN/stream on...

Hermansson was expected to share the Octagon with Brunson in the original co-main event of UFC Orlando on Saturday. However, the ‘Joker’ lost out on Brunson after he was forced to withdraw because of an undisclosed injury. Receiving a short-notice replacement has...

Daniel Cormier: There's more value in fighting Michael Chandler than Jorge Masvidal thinks

With Gilbert Burns booked up, Daniel Cormier thinks Michael Chandler is the next best option for Jorge Masvidal.

Chandler (23-8 MMA, 2-3 UFC) called Masvidal out for a “BMF” fight, but Masvidal told MMA Junkie in a recent interview that it doesn’t remotely interest him.

Cormier thinks it should interest him, though. Masvidal (35-16 MMA, 12-9 UFC) says he’s still eyeing a title shot and with Chandler’s name value, Cormier thinks it’s a fight that could help propel “Gamebred”...
