UFC President: Machida not next in line for title fight

After Lyoto Machida knocked out Ryan Bader at UFC on FOX 4, it was all but a guarantee that Machida would be next in line for a chance to revenge his loss to Jon Jones and fight for the UFC light heavyweight title.

After the recent UFC 151 incident, it seems that is no longer the case. Machida was given the chance to fight Jon Jones at UFC 152 on four weeks notice, and declined the fight. He will now not be next in line, White revealed in an interview with Ariel Helwani tonight. White had spoken with Machida's manager, Ed Soares, who also expected Machida to take the fight. Machida we said he didn't have the time to prepare, did not accept, and in at least White's eyes, has moved down the ladder to face the champion.

White: UFC 151 fighters were compensated

Tonight in an interview with Ariel Helwani, UFC President Dana White revealed that some of the fighters that were scheduled for UFC 151, but  had their fights rescheduled months away, were indeed 'compensated'.

Earlier reports from media had indicated that the rules of the Nevada State Athletic Commission would require the UFC to offer these fighters bouts on the next scheduled card or to pay their 'show' money.

Fedor wins GOAT poll, in Brazil

By a large margin, Fedor Emelianenko defeated Anderson Silva in a poll about who's the best MMA fighter of all time.

The question about who's the best of all time in MMA always cause fiery discussions among the fans. Normally there's balance between those who point Anderson Silva as being the greatest ever, and those who prefer Fedor. However, that's not what was seen in this Portal do Vale Tudo poll.

People voted in the poll all August on the PVT homepage, and chose the Russian as the greatest of all time, with 73% of the votes. "Spider" stuck way behind, with only 12% of the votes. In third came Minotauro with 7%.

It's relevant to note that only one vote per ip was allowed, and the poll set a PVT record.

Complete results:
Fedor Emelianenko: 73%
Anderson Silva: 12%
Rodrigo Minotauro: 7%
Dan Henderson: 7%
Randy Couture: 1%

Lesnar vs. Fedor?

Source: Fighters Only

 

Would you like to see Brock Lesnar against Fedor Emelianenko? Dana White wants to know.

"Is this the fight u guys want to see? Post a thread asking if people want to see this fight," he asked users of  The Underground MMA forum earlier this week, and the response has been phenomenal. Site owner Kirik Jenness says that the thread dedicated to the topic was a record breaker, accumulating over 15,000 replies in under three days.

White has posted nothing beyond that one question, leading to debate as to whether it was a serious enquiry or a bit of fun on his part. But if it was the former, the intensity of interest from the fan base must make it seem like a viable option if it could be made to happen - it would clearly be a huge-selling pay-per-view.

Fighters Only made a few enquiries last night and it seems White’s question isn’t being entirely dismissed in Russia. Sources there indicate that while no formal approaches have been made, the idea is potentially of interest. 

Fedor announced his retirement in July and said that no “fantastic offers” could bring him back, but time alters perception and mood. It is entirely possible he could be tempted into one more mega-bout if Lesnar could be brought back into the UFC fold. All the signs are that Lesnar isn’t entirely happy with his current WWE tenure, so that isn’t outside the realm of possibility.

At present the whole thing has little substance but Lesnar’s unsettled state and the fact White’s query isn’t being dismissed out of hand in Russia means that the pieces are at least potentially in play. 

Negotiations between the two sides haven’t gone well in the past but with the UFC looking for big pay-per-views and the recent events in Fedor’s career, perhaps they could approach the debating table with fresh perspectives a second time around.

More news as we get it.
