ONE champion Roger Gracie retires from MMA
(https:)
Three months after retiring from jiu-jitsu, Roger Gracie has decided to hang up his MMA gloves as well. Gracie competed in MMA for the last time in May 2016, when he submitted Michal Pasternak in the first round to claim the vacant ONE Championship light heavyweight belt. The jiu-jitsu ace leaves the sport with a 8-2 record.

Tony Ferguson responds to Conor McGregor with perfect(ly odd) 'Grand Theft Auto' video
(mmajunkie.com)
UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor broke his silence on interim title holder Tony Ferguson (we think) when he tweeted a picture Friday casting himself as Tony Montana from “Scarface” – using the style of the “Grand Theft Auto” video game – with the simple caption: “Tony.” As expected, the Tony we believe McGregor was calling out had a rather quick response in the form of a “Grand Theft Auto”-inspired video of sorts. I say “of sorts” because … well, just take a look:

USADA suspends Jesse Taylor one year for positive drug test for clomiphene
(https:)
From comeback story to drug suspension in three months. USADA suspended Jesse Taylor one year for testing positive for anti-estrogen agent clomiphene in an out-of-competition drug test, the UFC’s anti-doping partner announced Friday. The failed drug test stemmed from a sample collected Aug. 22. Taylor was subsequently pulled from a UFC Sydney fight with Belal Muhammad in November. In the release, USADA stated that Taylor had accepted the suspension, which was the maximum for the prohibited substance. Clomiphene is not approved by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration for use by males and “promotes the secretion of testosterone,” per USADA.

UFC 215 & UFC 216 Bring In Atrocious Pay-Per-View Numbers
(lowkickmma.com)
The UFC has hit a wall after the massively successful UFC 214 in July. UFC 215, which was headlined by Amanda Nunes vs Valentina Shevchenko II, has an estimated 100,000 PPV buys, while UFC 216 an estimated 120,000, according to MMA Fighting’s Dave Meltzer. Compare that to UFC 214’s 850,000 buys, but keep in mind that card featured Jon Jones, one of the UFC’s most consistent draws for the UFC when it comes to pay-per-view.
