UFC 182 Results: Jon Jones Earns Decision Win Against Daniel Cormier

Jon Jones vs. Daniel Cormier is the greatest UFC title fight/rivalry in a long-ass time, and it’s finally going to happen tonight in Las Vegas. After a rough 2014, we MMA fans needed this. We deserve this. The time is actually now, for once.

Also on the UFC 182 main card: Donald Cerrone looks for his sixth consecutive win against confident young contender Myles Jury, Josh Burkman gets a “welcome back!” fight against Hector Lombard (yikes), hot flyweight prospect Kyoji Horiguchi meets Louis Gaudinot, and Nate Marquardt fights Brad Tavares just because.

Our man Mike Fagan will be dropping round-by-round results from the “Jones vs. Cormier” PPV after the jump, beginning at 10 p.m. ET / 7 p.m. PT. Refresh the page every few minutes for all the latest, and follow us on twitter for additional commentary. Thanks for being here.

UFC Fight Night 58 Results: Lyoto Machida Wrecks CB Dollaway With a Body Kick in Round 1, Barao Submits Gagnon

UFC Fight Night 58 is the last UFC event of year, but it’s not exactly a “YEAR-END EVENT!” worth getting excited about. It’s more like that last bit of food of your plate after a long, arduous dinner, and you have no real interest in cramming it down your throat — in fact, the very thought of doing that makes you want to barf — but come on, you’re not really going to leave one bite on your plate, are you? Who does that? It’s just one bite! Eat it!

Anyway, tonight’s card comes to us live from the Jose Correa Arena in Barueri, Sao Paulo, Brazil, and features Lyoto Machida vs. CB Dollaway, Renan Barao vs. Mitch Gagnon, Shoe Face vs. Brawlin’ Barista, and Erick Silva vs. Uncredited Non-Wiki Victim #3. Papa Goldstein will be plugging in all the UFC Fight Night 58 results after the jump, and we might even liveblog the fights we’ve mentioned above, if we feel like it. Follow us after the jump, refresh the page periodically for the latest updates, and follow us on twitter for even more commentary.

Tonight’s UFC 181 pay-per-view card is headlined by Johny Hendricks vs. Robbie Lawler, in a rematch of one of the greatest fights of 2014. Plus: Anthony Pettis‘s first lightweight title defense after winning the belt over 15 months ago, a heavyweight scrap between Travis Browne vs. Brendan Schaub, and the first appearance of the Duffman in two years. Should be pretty okay.

UFC 175 Results: Weidman Decisions Machida, Rousey DESTROYS Davis


(This 4th of July weekend, let’s declare our independence from “Machida drinks pee-pee” jokes. #cagepotatoban / Photo by Esther Lin for MMAFighting.com)

When UFC middleweight champion Chris Weidman knocked out Anderson Silva last July, fans called it a fluke. When Weidman snapped Silva’s leg by checking a kick in their rematch, fans called it a fluke again. Tonight at UFC 175 in Las Vegas, Weidman has the opportunity to prove that his title reign is the real deal when he takes on Lyoto Machida, who could become just the third fighter in UFC history to win a belt in two different weight classes.

Also on tonight’s main card, bantamweight baroness Ronda Rousey will publicly execute Alexis Davis, and Stefan Struve returns to action against Matt Mitrione. Plus: A couple of prelim-caliber fights that somehow creeped onto the PPV due to circumstances beyond anyone’s control.

Fresh off his liveblog of the last UFC PPV (sorry about that, dude), our friend Barry “Bear” Siragusa is BACK in the saddle agaaaain, and will be posting round-by-round results from the “Weidman vs. Machida” pay-per-view broadcast after the jump beginning at 10 p.m. ET / 7 p.m. PT. Refresh the page every few minutes for all the latest, and shoot us your own thoughts in the comments section or on twitter @cagepotatomma. Thanks for coming.
