UFC heavyweight Todd Duffee seeks November comeback after more than 2-year layoff
(mmajunkie.com)
Todd Duffee hasn’t been seen in a UFC fight since a first-round knockout loss to Frank Mir in the UFC Fight Night 71 headliner nearly two years ago. He hopes for that to change in the coming months, though. Duffee (9-3 MMA, 3-2 UFC), who once was considered the future of the UFC’s heavyweight division due to his speed, power and athleticism, has been his own worst enemy over the years. Keeping healthy has been a constant battle that has allowed Duffee to fight just three times over the past five years.

(m.sherdog.com)
It might not have been the most well received main event when it was announced, but Cub Swanson and Artem Lobov put on a show when the lights were on. Swanson and Lobov received “Fight of the Night” honors and $50,000 apiece for their five-round featherweight battle in the UFC Fight Night 108 headliner in Nashville, Tenn., on Saturday night. Lobov, a big underdog heading into the bout, withstood a barrage of punishment over the course of 25 minutes and may have even gotten the better of Swanson in the opening stanza. Ultimately, it was Swanson’s multi-faceted offensive arsenal that prevailed, as the Jackson-Wink MMA representative captured a unanimous verdict.

Cormier vs. Jones 2 at UFC 214
(mixedmartialarts.com)
Ariel Helwani is reporting for MMA Fighting that Daniel Cormier vs. Jon Jones 2 targeted for UFC 214 on July 29, 2017 at Honda Center in Anaheim, California. A fight between Cormier and Jimi Manuwa was considered, but ultimately rejected in favor of what is sure to be a far more lucrative fight. This will be the fifth time the UFC attempted to make the fight. Jones withdrew from the first scheduled fight in 2014, due to a knee injury. In 2015 the pair fought, with Jones successfully defending his belt. In 2016 it was Cormier who withdrew with a leg injury. And there was the fiasco at UFC 200.
