Report: Lil Nog meets Cannonier at UFC Norfolk
(https:)
Fully healed from a cervical injury that removed him from UFC Fight Night 112, Antonio Rogerio Nogueira will now return at UFC Fight Night 120 to take on Jared Cannonier, as Combate reported. The 41-year-old Nogueira (22-8, 5-5 UFC) will try to bounce back from a TKO loss suffered by the hands of Ryan Bader in November 2016. His last win was a TKO victory over Patrick Cummins in May 2016.

Georges St. Pierre Signs Bout Agreement To Fight Michael Bisping At UFC127
(sherdog.com)
The former welterweight titlist has not competed since taking a split decision against Johny Hendricks at UFC 167 in November 2013. His return against Bisping was initially announced in March, but injury issues for both fighters nixed the promotion’s targeted summer date. The bout appeared to be off the table, and UFC President Dana White revealed that GSP would instead challenge for welterweight gold upon his return. However, White elected to revisit the booking following what he perceived to be a subpar performance by reigning 170-pound king Tyron Woodley in a victory over Demian Maia at UFC 214.

Michael Bisping details robberies, near-death experience on Hawaiian vacation
(https:)
It’s an all-too-often told horror story: You, or someone you know, went on vacation in an exotic spot and fell victim to a robbery. Or, worse, a near-death experience goes down during some sort of outdoor activity. Michael Bisping, for his part, went through both during what seems to be some sort of cursed trip.

Unhappy with ‘monkeys’ comment, Floyd Mayweather said fight with Conor McGregor is ‘for all the blacks around the world’
(https:)
The uncomfortable topic of race came up quickly on the MayMac World Tour last month. Conor McGregor drew criticism on the first stop in Los Angeles after he told Floyd Mayweather to dance for him, referring to the African American boxing star as “boy.” McGregor used similar language a day later in Toronto and then in New York, on the third stop of the tour, it boiled over.

Johny Hendricks To Face Paulo Borrachinha At UFC 217
(https:)
It seems that we have another addition to the UFC 217 card at Madison Square Garden on November 4th. Johny Hendricks (18-7) will be returning to action to face Brazilian Paulo Borrachinha (10-0) as reported by globo.com. This card is shaping up very well, with Michael Bisping vs Georges St. Pierre fighting for the Middleweight championship expected as the main fight on the card and Joanna Jedrzejczyk vs Rose Namajunas targeted for the Strawweight title as well. Hendricks coming off of a loss to Tim Boetsch at UFC Fight Night 112 is looking to redeem himself. Having a bad weight cut and missing weight by 3 lbs, Hendricks will want to prove to himself and the UFC that he can make weight at Middleweight again. Other than his weight issues he has only had one other bout at Middleweight, in which he faced Hector Lombard and won by unanimous decision. He has a lot to prove in this division even with such a long career at Welterweight and being a former champion at 170lbs.

Jessica Eye headed to flyweight for bout against Paige VanZant
(https:)
Our friends over at FloCombat are reporting that a big-time women’s bout will go down at UFC 216, as both Jessica Eye (11-5) and Page VanZant (7-3) head to the newly-formed flyweight division. The event takes place on October 6 in Las Vegas and is shaping up to be a massive night. Eye looks to improve on her 1-5 record inside the Octagon, as the Ohio native will finally get to compete in her natural weight class at 125 pounds. She mostly competed at 125 before signing with the UFC in 2013, including a couple of impressive wins in the Bellator cage. Her only official win in the UFC at bantamweight was a victory over Leslie Smith at UFC 180, although she also did win her bout against Sarah Kaufman at UFC 166, but that bout was eventually overturned. Eye was scheduled to compete against UFC newcomer Aspen Ladd last month at The Ultimate Fighter 25 Finale, but the bout was cancelled on fight day when Ladd fell ill. Instead, she will now focus on her flyweight debut.

(mma-in-asia.com)
Rolando DY will return to the Octagon on 23 September when meets seasoned Japanese featherweight Teruto Ishihara (9-4-2) at UFC Fight Night 117 on 23 Sept. One of the most highly-rated MMA fighters in the Philippines and Southeast Asia, Dy signed with UFC earlier this year and made his UFC debut in Singapore against veteran featherweight Alex Caceres. His UFC debut had all the makings of a barn burner, but in the end, Caceres served up a barrage of strikes and leg kicks to slow DY’s momentum. The bout was eventually stopped by the referee after an accidental eye poke left the Filipino unable to continue.
