Why Justin Gaethje is publicly declaring short-notice fights are a no-no
(mmajunkie.com)
A lot of big UFC opportunities have been earned through short-notice fights. And more than a few dreams have been dashed. Lightweight standout Justin Gaethje doesn’t want to wind up in the latter situation. As frenzied as he is in the octagon, he attributes his success to long training camps. He wants it to stay that way as his UFC career develops. Should he find himself winning the lightweight-title sweepstakes, he’d like to think he could say no. But just to provide a little extra incentive, he recently declared it to reporters.

Khabib Nurmagomedov is determined to make sure 2017 isn’t a lost year. Finally healthy and back to training, the undefeated Dagestani lightweight appeared Monday on The MMA Hour and revealed that there is an “80 percent” chance he makes his long-awaited return on Dec. 30 at UFC 219 in Las Vegas, Nev.

Eddie Alvarez gives his side of TUF 26 beef with ‘head case’ Lauren Murphy
(https:)
n the aired episodes of The Ultimate Fighter 26, it seemed like the beef between Eddie Alvarez and Lauren Murphy began the day after Murphy lost her first-round fight. Murphy, who was on Alvarez’s team on the show, didn’t come to the morning practice following her loss to Nicco Montaño. Alvarez chastised Murphy for that and for having a poor attitude in an episode that aired last month. That, however, was not where the tensions began, Alvarez said Thursday on Sirius XM’s MMA Tonight. The former UFC lightweight champion said Murphy began “conspiring” against her teammates from early on in the competition, including telling a coach the team didn’t mind if Sijara Eubanks fought first because she was off weight and asking Alvarez for tips about beating teammate Barb Honchak.
