UFC 191 Highlights/Results: Mighty Mouse Dominates, Arlovski and Mir Underwhelm + More


(Johnson vs. Dodson highlights, via UFC on FOX.)

At this point, it seems that flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson is forever destined to be one of the most dominant, yet simultaneously unbankable fighters in the history of the sport. Last Saturday was no exception, as the man they call “Mighty Mouse” turned in one of his best performances to date against rival John Dodson while headlining the lowest live gate for a UFC pay-per-view in 11 years. No respect, no respect, I tells ya.

Either the UFC has absolutely no idea how to market him, or casual fans are simply refusing to warm up to “little flyweights” (Ed note: My God, maybe Michael Bisping was right). Regardless, the UFC might want to start relegating Johnson to the FOX/FS1 cards, or at the very minimum, placing him in the co-main spot on a pay-per-views, because something just isn’t clicking with the UFC’s “f*cking idiot” fanbase.

Of course, Johnson wasn’t given much support in the form of a noteworthy undercard, which, save for a few noteworthy moments, didn’t really do much to entice those seated at the MGM Grand.

Quote of the Day: Frank Mir “Is Not Happy” About Potentially “Derailing” Andrei Arlovski at UFC 191


(Derailing the hype train of a youngster once and for all, on the other hand…via Getty)

Frank Mir and Andrei Arlovski have a lot in common. They’re both over six feet tall, they were both born in 1979, and they both recently used Antonio “Bifgoot” Silva as a stepping stone for their careers. (Ed note: Click here to celebrate that sweet burn with me.)

Less than a year ago, it looked like Mir all but destined to wind up alongside his former rival in the “forced retirement” line, and now, he’s looking at a potential title shot if he is victorious over Arlovski, whom himself just defeated a heavily-favored top 5 opponent in his last contest. The two veteran heavyweights will do battle at UFC 191: Johnson vs. Dodson 2 in just a couple weeks in a fight that has damn near everyone foaming at the mouth in anticipation. Everyone except Frank Mir, that is.

Daniel Cormier vs. Alexander Gustafsson Delayed Due to Injury Because Of Course It Is

Not too long ago, Dana White took American Top Team to task for their “stone age” ways of doing things, which he blamed for then-heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez‘s series of ongoing injuries suffered during training. And despite the fact that AKA actually ranked rather low on the list of injury rates among major fight camps, there was no denying that their historically brutal sparring sessions were playing a major role in their fighters frequent injuries.

Enter newly-crowned light heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier, or should I say, exit Daniel Cormier. From his title fight against Alexander Gustafsson at UFC 191. Because he’s injured. Daniel Cormier trains at AKA.

That was a long walk, but I regret nothing.
