Swanson vs Ortega

When discussing the 145-pound division in UFC, Cub Swanson’s name is a requirement. The veteran fighter has slowly worked his way up through the ranks to become one of the top contenders for the title, but standing in his way is an upstart in Brian Ortega. Despite consecutive losses to Frankie Edgar and new champion Max Holloway, Swanson is on the verge of title contention if he can get by Ortega on Saturday night in the main event of UFC Fight Night Fresno.

Swanson has won four straight fights and earned Fight of the Night honors in his last two bouts. Ortega, meanwhile, boasts a nearly unblemished record in his professional career with a 12-0-0 record and one No Contest. He’s also won four straight fights since joining UFC, scoring stoppages in each bout.

Saturday night also marks the return of another top 145-pound contender in Jason Knight, who lost to Ricardo Lamas his last time out. Here’s everything you need to know about Saturday’s action.

The main event of this weekend’s UFC Fight Night, in Fresno, California, is more important now than it was when contracts were first signed. With Max Holloway successfully defending his featherweight title against Jose Aldo for a second time and Frankie Edgar out for a while with an orbital bone fracture, the winner this weekend could find himself contesting for the title in his next outing. Perennial featherweight contender, Cub Swanson, looks to add a fifth victory to his current winning streak by beating one of the division’s new faces in Brian Ortega. Ortega is a fighter who has already shown plenty of potential in the Octagon but has clearly not realised it to its fullest.

Still unbeaten after 12 professional fights, Ortega is a dangerous submission artist who has discovered his striking power since signing with the UFC. His Gracie Jiu Jitsu black belt has forced his opponents to tap out in half of his bouts. Then, in his June 2015 ‘Fight of the Night’ war with Thiago Tavares, he showed good head movement and takedown defence and finished with a flurry of punches. Jump forward almost exactly 12 months to UFC 199 and he is knocking out Clay Guida with a beautifully timed knee, with only 20 seconds left in the fight. He had a triangle win over Diego Brandao in-between those fights and is coming off guillotine win over Renato Moicano this summer.

Selby vs Ramirez

A manhunt was launched in London after the opponent due to challenge Welsh world champion Lee Selby on the James DeGale homecoming card this Saturday disappeared.

There was no sign of Mexico’s Eduardo Ramirez at the final media conference. That event was delayed for an hour as promoter Frank Warren sent assistants to the hotel where the challenger for Selby’s IBF featherweight title has been staying.

Ramirez’s room was empty apart from his kit. After a subsequent search he was found in the vicinity of his east London accommodation but issues over his weight remained a problem.

The likeable Sebly has endured a distressing year, which has included the passing of his mother and grandfather.

He also lost his long-desired debut appearance in the fight capital of the world, Las Vegas, where he was due to appear on the card topped by Carl Frampton’s defeat by Leo Santa Cruz.

The opponent on that occasion, Jonathan Barros, failed a blood test. Barros was cleared to meet Selby in London some months later and the Welshman went through with that fight even though his mother had just died.

He made that decision as a consequence of the frustration of not fighting and the need to keep his career active.

This fight with Ramirez is planned to set him up for big stadium fights against Josh Warrington and Frampton next year.

He says: ‘After all that has happened in 2017 I’ve learned to cope with serious disappointment. I will just stay professional and focused and hope that this guy shows up on the night.’

For his part, DeGale declares himself fully recovered from major shoulder and nasal surgery as he approaches his first fight in the UK for more than three years.

The challenger for his IBF world super middleweight title, experienced American Caleb Truax, thankfully turned up on time and said: ‘I know it will be a huge upset if I beat James.

‘But I wouldn’t have travelled all this way unless I believed I could win and not only realise my dream of becoming world champion but also secure the financial future of myself and my family.’

DeGale is a heavy odds-on favourite to secure the victory which is expected to set him up with stadium fights next year against the like of his old rival George Groves.

Salido vs Roman

Someday, Orlando Salido will be all but forgotten. This is not a fighter who is going to reaches out to future generations, he’s not headed to the Hall of Fame, he isn’t/wasn’t truly elite. His accomplishments and his career will fade away as new fighters come along. There have been many Salidos throughout boxing history.

But Salido is the type of fighter that people who watched him will remember and talk about for a long time. “Remember Orlando Salido? Hell of a fighter.” And youngsters will look at his record and wonder if he was so great, why did he lose so much? Why didn’t he have a sparkling record?

There’s a lot to be said for actually experiencing someone’s career, because I’m going to talk about Orlando Salido in my coming decades a lot more than I will a lot of better fighters. Because not only is he really good, but he’s been a true warrior in his career. The fact he’s still a top contender at age 37, 13 years after his loss to Juan Manuel Marquez in his first world title shot, says plenty.

Salido won his last fight, back in May in Mexico against Aristedes Perez, and was 0-1-2 in his previous three, all terrific fights, two against Rocky Martinez and one with Francisco Vargas. He remains a reliably entertaining TV fighter and someone who can hang with the division’s best. Until someone proves otherwise, he is a threat at 130.

Invicta FC 26

Invicta Fighting Championships returns to the Scottish Rites Center in Kansas City, Missouri this Friday live on UFC FightPass for Invicta FC 26. This card features a number of talented fighters including an undefeated up and coming title challenger, a top prospect making a huge step up in competition, and one of the Pacific Northwest’s toughest talents. The athletes on the card at Invicta FC 26 are some of the most experienced and proven talents in WMMA outside of the UFC. There will certainly be a watchful eye on this card as the UFC continues to scout talent from the young fight promotion. Let’s take a closer look as some of these matchups and breakdown what to watch for at Invicta FC 26.

Mackenzie Dern is one of the brightest prospects in all of MMA. The world championship BJJ black belt has gotten her career off to a hot start, going 4-0 with two spectacular submission victories and two dominant unanimous decisions. The only issue is that in two of Dern’s three fights at the 115 lb Strawweight division she has missed weight, and not by close margins. Invicta FC 26 is tomorrow and that means that the weigh-ins were today! And fortunately for Dern, all went according to plan and she weighed in right at 115.

Making weight has been Dern’s biggest challenge so far in her MMA career. It’s very important for her future that she made the limit in this one as Invicta is affiliated with the UFC and UFC Fight Pass. Many fighters have gone to and from Invicta to the UFC and each always have their eyes on the other’s fighters. Dern has been one of those fighters even before her upcoming Invicta debut.

There are few things that Dana White hates more than fighters who miss weight, and it could have been holding Dern back from already being in the UFC so she’s taking steps in the right direction to reach the ultimate goal, win or lose.

Dern takes on the seasoned striker, Kaline Medeiros who is the biggest name opponent Dern has ever faced. Medeiros is coming off a long layoff after a title losing effort against Angela Hill. She will be hungry to get back in the win column and will provide a huge challenge for the young, Dern,

Invicta FC 26 is a loaded night of action for the women, and it features a Flyweight title fight between two of the division’s very best worldwide. Here are the weigh-in results for the rest of the card:

Invicta FC 26 Weigh-in Results

Jennifer Maia (123.3) vs. Aga Niedźwiedź (124.6)

Cotto vs Ali

As Miguel Cotto prepares to say farewell to boxing in what will be the final fight of his Hall of Fame career, he and Sadam Ali host the final press conference before their fight. You can check the full presser above courtesy of our colleagues at Fight Hub TV.

Several fighters who will appear on the undercard took to the podium to speak their piece before Sadam Ali popped up in his velvet blazer.

“I’ve been training my whole life, since I was 8 years old I started boxing. Everybody waits for a world title like this and against a legend, for a world title, it gets no better,” said Ali.

“So yes, you do see a little more muscle because you gotta work hard. You’re going in there, you’re fighting Miguel Cotto. If you’re not ready you’re gonna be in trouble so I know what I’m stepping in there with and I know I have to be ready.”

Miguel Cotto will make the short walk from the locker room to the ring at New York’s Madison Square Garden on Saturday for his WBO super welterweight title bout with Sadam Ali with trainer Freddie Roach at his shoulder.

Roach is the second member of the International Boxing Hall of Fame, along with the late, great Emanuel Steward, to train Cotto in the last eight years. Over what will be his final 14 fights, Cotto also was trained by Joe Santiago and Pedro Diaz.

That is in stark contrast to his first 34 professional bouts, when he went 33-1 with 27 knockouts and won world titles at super lightweight and welterweight. The man in his corner for all 34 of those bouts was his uncle, Evangelista Cotto.

As Cotto developed into one of the biggest stars in boxing in the early-to-mid 2000s, tensions rose between the fighter and his uncle. But after a win in New York over Michael Jennings, it all came to a head and Miguel Jr. and Evangelista got into a physical confrontation.

That ended their relationship and now, more than eight years later, they still haven’t spoken.

Cotto will end his legendary career on Saturday after the bout with Ali. Evangelista Cotto will be watching, albeit with mixed feelings. Despite the distance between them, Evangelista still cares for Miguel and hopes he does well. He said he hopes they can reconcile, but that it would be up to Miguel to reach out to him.

“I did open the door and I let it be known through the news media that I would love to talk to him,” Evangelista Cotto said. “I raised him from a very young age within boxing, but the way I see Miguel living now and the people he has surrounded himself with, I see no reconciliation coming from that side.

“Why should I call him? How could I do it? I was the one who was beaten. All it would take is one call, one visit, and it would be over. I am willing to talk with Miguel and I love him very much, and all it would take is for my nephew to call and say, ‘I’m sorry.’ ”

From a boxing standpoint, Evangelista Cotto feels that while he was replaced by some great trainers – Roach and Steward are two of the best who ever lived – no one has looked out for Miguel on other boxing-related issues.

WWE returns to pay-per-view (PPV) — if your cable provider is carrying the event, of course — tomorrow night (Sun., Oct. 22, 2017) live from the Target Center in Minneapolis, Minnesota with its TLC event starting at 7:00 p.m. ET with the Kickoff show leading right on into the main course at 8 p.m. ET on the WWE Network.

Set for the card: Kurt Angle will have his first match in a WWE ring in over a decade, Asuka makes her main roster debut, and more!

Luckily for you Cagesiders, our staff of learned wrestling blowhards is here to help figure out just how the event is going to play out with predictions for each match on the card.

What was supposed to be a celebration of The Shield’s return is set to look vastly different as card changes gave WWE TLC 2017 an abrupt makeover.

Roman Reigns was set to join his fellow Hounds of Justice in their first match as a team since 2014. Bray Wyatt was going to transform into his Sister Abigail alter-ego. Neither is healthy enough to compete, however.

And so, Kurt Angle and AJ Styles will walk into Sunday’s TLC: Tables, Ladders & Chairs pay-per-view as all-star backups.

NRL Grand Final 2017 Live

An All-British battle is on tap this Saturday as World Boxing Super Series (WBSS) tournament action continues when World Boxing Association (WBA) Super World Super Middleweight Champion “Saint” George Groves makes his first title defense against undefeated challenger Jamie Cox, airing live in Canada exclusively on Super Channel from Wembley Arena in London, United Kingdom.

The “Groves vs. Cox” card, starting at 2 p.m. ET / 11 a.m. PT,allows Canadian boxing fans to continue watching all $50-million WBSS tournament action live, exclusively on Canada’s boxing destination network, Super Channel, which acquired the rights in Canada to broadcast the World Boxing Super Series from MP & Silva, a leading international media company that provides media rights, digital, technology and sponsorship services.

Groves, 29, has an experienced advantage over Cox in terms of quality opponents fought. Last May, Groves stopped Fedor Chudinov in the sixth round to capture the WBA Super World Super Middleweight Championship. In addition to Chudinov, Groves has defeated two other world champions, fellow Brit and Olympic gold medalist James DeGale (MDEC12), and Glen Johnson (UDEC12). All three of Groves’ career losses as a professional have been to world champions, twice to fellow Brit Carl Froch, along with Badou Jack.

“Experience is very important,” Groves explained. “You don’t understand it until you got it and even when you got it it’s still difficult to understand. I’m sure it will play a part. Cox has boxed at a high level as an amateur but he’s yet to do it as a pro. Let’s see if he can cope. I’m sure he will be well rehearsed in the build-up and well drilled in the gym but putting it together under the spotlight on the biggest stage is always the most difficult task. I’ve been there and done it before, but let’s see if he can.

“I’ve still got the hunger. I’ve still nowhere near achieved what I set out to achieve as a little kid. I haven’t won enough belts, I haven’t won enough fights, I haven’t made enough money, and until all those and a few other things are crossed off the bucket list, I’m more-hungry than ever. I finally know what it feels like to be a World Champion and I don’t plan on surrendering that anytime soon. Now I would like the feeling of winning the Muhammad Ali Trophy.”

Santa Cruz vs Avalos

Leo Santa Cruz and Abner Mares are both fighting at the same venue on the same Premier Boxing Champions card on the same night, but unfortunately for those aching for these two to follow up their thrilling 2015 title contest, they are not in the same match.

Santa Cruz is instead defending his WBA super world featherweight title against Chris Avalos, a fighter who is on a rather poor run of form of late. Mares will be taking on Andres Gutierrez to defend his regular WBA world featherweight title in the co-feature of the PBC on Fox card.

ESPN.com’s Dan Rafael noted in August that though the mandatory rematch fell through for fall, “the announcement of the Oct. 14 doubleheader said that, assuming they both retain their titles, they have agreed to terms to meet in the rematch in early 2018.”

So with that hitch in the sequel, Santa Cruz finds himself taking on an opponent he should beat soundly on Saturday night. Here’s how you can catch him in action.

Canelo vs Golovkin Fight

Canelo Alvarez has been one of the biggest names in boxing for a long

Canelo Alvarez has been one of the biggest names in boxing for a long, long time, and on Saturday he’ll be fighting one just about as big in Gennady Golovkin on HBO pay-per-view. Golovkin and Alvarez comprise the actual best boxing match of 2017, even if the earlier bout between Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor exceeded expectations.

Unlike that fight, this one features two of the very best in the sport. It will begin, live on PPV at 8 p.m. ET on Saturday. The card comes from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. Live streaming of the bout can be had online if purchased directly from the site set up for the bout, CaneloGGG.com.

Alvarez is 49-1-1 with 34 knockouts to his name, his lone loss coming to Mayweather in 2013, when he was still relatively inexperienced. He’s earned some nice wins since then, including a huge win over Miguel Cotto in 2015 and a win over Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. in his last outing.

That said, many have criticized him for picking his fights carefully following his loss to Mayweather. Of course, that could have something to do with the fact that prior to that fight, he’d fought in some very risky bouts as his star grew.

Golovkin is undefeated at 37-0, with 33 knockouts to his name. His last fight was a unanimous decision win over Daniel Jacobs, his biggest fight to date. Alvarez is a big step up for him, but one that many think he can make convincingly.

Alvarez is The Ring middleweight champion and the former lineal middleweight champion. Golovkin is the unified WBA Super), WBC, IBF and IBO middleweight champion. There’s plenty at stake going into Saturday’s bout, the least of which isn’t the crown for arguably the best active boxer on the planet.
