Arlovski-Tybura, Gomi-Tuck among fights added to UFC Singapore
(bloodyelbow.com)
The UFC’s return to Singapore will include fights involving Andrei Arlovski and Takanori Gomi. The UFC kicked off Tuesday with a slew of fight announcements for its Saturday, June 17th event in Singapore. Two of the bigger names confirmed for the event are former UFC heavyweight champion Andrei Arlovski and former PRIDE lightweight champion Takanori Gomi. Arlovski will be facing Poland’s Marcin Tybura, while Gomi will take on Jon Tuck. Arlovski (25-14, 1 NC) has lost four straight bouts, including a 92-second thrashing vs. Francis Ngannou at UFC on FOX 23 in Denver. His other defeats during this run have come against Josh Barnett (who became the first man to submit Arlovski), Alistair Overeem, and current champion Stipe Miocic. The last time Arlovski won a fight was by unanimous decision vs. Frank Mir at UFC 191, which gave him an unlikely six-fight winning streak. Tybura (15-2) had a disappointing UFC debut, losing to Timothy Johnson by decision last May in Zagreb, Croatia. Since then, Tybura has scored back-to-back stoppage wins, knocking out Viktor Pesta with a head kick in August, then TKOing Luiz Henrique at UFC 209.

John Moraga vs. Ashkan Mokhtarian na UFC Fight Night 110
(lowking.pl)
The fight of Joseph Benavidez with Ben Nguyen and John Moraga with Ashkan Mokhtarian has won the UFC Fight Night 110. Two duels in the category have been officially announced for the UFC Fight Night 110, which will be held on 10 June in New Zealand Auckland. Ranked # 1 in the Joseph Benavidez (25-4), who has won six consecutive matches since the second defeat of Demetrious Johnson, crosses the 13th place with Ben Nguyen Nguyen (16-6), who won three out of four Clashes in the octagon, recently confidently beating Geane Herrera. Australian living in Australia is a very efficient and extremely versatile stand guard who works great on his legs - and in fist and kick exchanges he can endanger Benavidez, especially since he is fighting for the fight. However, it is difficult not to favor here the former challenger, who also has a solid inventory, faced with much stronger rivals and has much more experience.

Josh Stansbury returns to the UFC in June
(https:)
Looking to rebound from his first loss inside the Octagon, Josh Stansbury (8-3, 1-1 UFC) is set to return to the UFC in June. The Ohio native will face Jeremy Kimball (14-6, 0-1 UFC) in a light heavyweight bout at UFC Fight Night 112 on June 25 in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. “The Sandman” competed on The Ultimate Fighter 23, where he was a semifinalist as part of Joanna Jedrzejczyk’s team. He made his official debut at the show’s finale, topping castmate Cory Hendricks via majority decision last July. He came up short in his sophomore UFC outing, however, losing a unanimous decision to Devin Clark at the TUF 24 Finale in December. The loss snapped an eight-fight winning streak for Stansbury, and was his first defeat since he started his career 0-2 in 2009.

UFC lightweights Marc Diakiese, Paul Felder trade Twitter barbs, fight seems inevitable
(mmajunkie.com)
Two of the UFC’s most exciting lightweights seem pretty close to a fight, if Twitter is any gauge. The recently victorious Marc Diakiese (12-0 MMA, 3-0 UFC) and Paul Felder (13-3 MMA, 5-2 UFC) today exchanged unpleasantries on social media. Diakiese said he’s now working to put them in the octagon soon. It all started at the post-event press conference for this past Saturday’s UFC Fight Night 107, where Diakiese pulled off a highlight reel knockout of Teemu Packalen in just 30 seconds, winning a $50,000 “Performance of the Night” bonus for his efforts.
