Nurmagomedov defends SD win over Scoggins
MMADecisions.com noted that 17 of 17 websites tracked had Justin Scoggins the winner over Said Nurmagomedov at UFC Fight Night 133 on Saturday. However, two of the three judges saw it the other way; Nurmagomedov naturally agrees. “For all three rounds, I was pressing him,” said Nurmagomedov via a translator to MMAjunkie post fight. “I was putting a lot of pressure on him, but sometimes I did a mistake. I was staying in front of him too long, but overall, I think I won this fight because I was constantly pressing him. ... He belongs in the top 10 of (flyweights), even despite all of his losses." Scoggins has now lost three in a row. It was the sixth straight win, and UFC debut for Khabib's cousin.

Chuck Norris chokes out GSP
Chuck Norris asked who would win if he fought Vladimir Putin?
"Let me just say this: it would be similar to what would happen if I were to become a politician – something I’m regularly asked to become. The reason I can’t become a congressman, senator, governor, president or any politician is because the second someone disagrees with me, I’ll be tempted to jump over any barrier between us and choke out my opposition! Now, that wouldn’t be very nice, would it?" - Chuck Norris
JDS wants trilogy fight vs. Miocic
At UFC on FOX 13 on December 13, 2014, Junior dos Santos unanimously decisioned Stipe Miocic in the fight of the night. At UFC 211 on May 13, 2017, JDS lost via TKO at 2:22 of Round 1 to then champion Miocic. On Saturday after unanimously decisioning Blagoy Ivanov, JDS called for a trilogy fight. It was Cigano's first first following the title challenge loss, due to a controversial tainted supplement test failure. “I’m not sure, but a rematch with Miocic would be very welcome,” said dos Santos. “The heavyweight division, there is many, many interesting things happening. Let’s sit down with my team and soon we will know.”
Dennis Bermudez loses 2nd fight in a row via SD, has harsh words for judges
Northcutt killing with kindness and nasty technique
With model looks, opportunities not available so soon to the less mediagenic, and an earnestness worthy of Mr. Rogers, it can be a little hard to like Sage Northcutt. But it's impossible not to like him, too. At UFC Fight Night 133 'Super' Sage was out vs. Zak Ottow and thundered back to win via KO. In a sport and nation septic with trash talk, after winning, Northcutt was winning. “I think that we all got to have respect for each other," he said. "And we could all be more careful with the things we say. But I’m so excited, thanks you guys!” Then he laughed, a little nervously.
