The UFC is approaching another multi-event weekend, as UFC Fight Night 53 and UFC Fight Night 54 will be held in Sweden and Canada, respectively, on Saturday.

At UFC Fight Night 53, Gunnar Nelson will look to keep his momentum going in a matchup with a UFC veteran. Undefeated in four UFC appearances, Nelson has looked unstoppable on the ground, but Story will be the Iceland native’s biggest test inside the Octagon.

Later on, Rory MacDonald and Tarec Saffiedine will attempt to make their cases for a title shot in the UFC Fight Night 54 main attraction. MacDonald has recorded two big wins in a row, while former Strikeforce champion Saffiedine has not lost since January 2011.

While the above-mentioned fighters have very bright futures ahead, some competitors stepping into the cage this weekend could be battling for their UFC careers. Here are the fighters sitting on hot seats heading into Saturday’s bouts.

 

Alexander Yakovlev

In May, Alexander Yakovlev was handed a brutal UFC debut matchup against Demian Maia.

As expected, Yakovlev was defeated by the former middleweight title challenger. However, he did show some promise by going the distance with Maia.

On Saturday, Yakovlev will have to prove he can perform against more reasonable opposition. However, he’ll have to do so in hostile territory, as Swedish welterweight Nico Musoke will look to hand Yakovlev his second UFC loss in Stockholm. 

Despite being dealt a rough hand, Yakovlev will still probably need a win in one of his first two UFC bouts in order to stick around with the promotion. 

 

Dennis Siver

The move to 145 pounds looked to be a smart decision early on, as Dennis Siver defeated Diego Nunes and Nam Phan in his first two fights in the featherweight division. However, things haven’t gone as well for the German since then.

Siver was knocked out by Cub Swanson, delaying any hope that he would fight for a championship soon. Then, Siver failed a drug test following what would have been a win over Manny Gamburyan.

Clearly, with a bout against UFC newcomer Charles Rosa, Siver is in the dog house with UFC brass. Should he fail another drug test, miss weight or lose in uneventful fashion, the 35-year-old could see his long UFC career come to a sudden end. 

 

Olivier Aubin-Mercier and Jake Lindsey

Having both lost in their initial UFC appearances, Olivier Aubin-Mercier and Jake Lindsey find themselves in a classic loser-leaves-town matchup.

Aubin-Mercier had a chance to win TUF: Nations in April, but Chad Laprise edged him on the scorecards in a split decision. Lindsey, meanwhile, made his UFC debut opposite Jon Tuck, who knocked The Librarian out in the third round.

Only 25 and 28 years old, respectively, Aubin-Mercier and Lindsey could have bright UFC futures ahead. However, the fighter that falls to 0-2 inside the Octagon on Saturday will more than likely be released. 

 

Tor Troeng

A well-known prospect, Tor Troeng was an exciting addition to TUF 17, but he hasn’t panned out at the highest level.

With a win over Adam Cella in his UFC debut, Troeng bought some time with the world’s top MMA promotion, but that time could be running out. Troeng has since lost to Rafael Natal and Trevor Smith, leaving him in danger of losing three in a row, a slump that would probably push him back to a smaller organization.

On Saturday, Troeng gets a more winnable matchup against Krzysztof Jotko. The Swedish fighter will need to take advantage of competing in his home country and turn things around. 

 

Jerrod Sanders

In July, Jerrod Sanders made his UFC debut against Yosdenis Cedeno. After seemingly losing the opening round, Sanders was unable to continue onto the second due to a knee injury.

This weekend, Sanders will return to the Octagon hoping to score his first UFC victory. Facing Pedro Munhoz, who is coming off of a win, Sanders isn’t getting it easy, though.

At 34 years old, this could be Sanders’ only chance to make it on the big show. Should he lose to Munhoz on Saturday, Sanders could be released.

Rick Story knows what it feels like to have momentum in the UFC welterweight division.

The Washington-born powerhouse rose to prominence in the 170-pound ranks on the strength of a six-fight winning streak that included wins over former title challenger Thiago Alves and prospect-turned-champion Johny Hendricks. “The Horror” used his solid wrestling base and forward pressure to overwhelm the opposition inside the Octagon, and the run he put on between 2009-2011, had Story poised to be the next big thing in the highly competitive welterweight division.

But mixed martial arts is an unpredictable sport.

Story’s red-hot streak would eventually come to an end in the summer of 2011 and the 30-year-old Vancouver-based fighter has spent the past three years scrapping to regain his footing in the upper tier of the 170-pound fold. Moving his training to the MMA Lab and a solid victory in his most recent outing against Leonardo Mafra back in July have things moving in the right direction, and Story will be looking to continue his climb when he faces Gunnar Nelson at Fight Night 53 in Stockholm on Oct. 4.

“[Nelson] has a weird karate stance, but he’s a good striker and he has outstanding grappling,” Story told Bleacher Report. “He’s also aggressive. I have pretty heavy hands and my striking keeps evolving. My transitions between wrestling and striking are getting better everyday. He’s going to be coming in for takedowns and I’m going to be hitting him on the defensive. I also have the ability to take him down and hit him while he’s on the ground and when he’s trying to get up. 

“This fight has the ability to be really exciting or it could be really boring. There’s a chance he could take me down, ride me out and ground and pound me for a full round. This fight is definitely up in the air and just depends on what happens in there.”

There was plenty of buzz surrounding Nelson’s arrival to the UFC back in 2012, and Story believes the hype attached to the grappling phenom is absolutely valid. The Iceland native has found success in all four of his showings inside the Octagon and has looked more impressive with each respective showing.

The hard-charging veteran is well aware of how such things can be derailed, and that is what he’ll be looking to do when he steps in against the talented young prospect in the main event at Fight Night 53.

“As far as hype is concerned, I don’t get caught up in it,” Story said. “I know Gunnar is great and he has hype for a reason. He’s doing the right things and people are seeing the greatness that he brings. I’m not going to take anything away from that or any of the hype that he has, but I’m definitely going to make him realize what it’s like fighting the upper echelon in the welterweight division.

“I don’t think he’s faced anyone like me who can go in with their head down and charge. There aren’t many people who will do that. There could be a situation where he has the advantage, then all of a sudden it changes from a fight into a brawl. When it turns into a brawl things get messy and technique goes out the window. I can take a good shot. I can go in with that confidence and go in and try to hit him as hard as I can if that situation comes up. 

“I’m sure experience will play a factor, but to what level I don’t know,” he responded when asked about the difference in UFC experience between them. “It always plays a factor, but it depends on how focus you come into a fight. That’s going to be on his shoulders. I know I’m focused. I’m comfortable. It’s a five-round fight, and while I’ve only done that once in my career, I’m pretty confident in my conditioning if I need to go that far.”

The next Battlegrounds MMA show is this Friday night at the BOK Center in Tulsa, Oklahoma. The show will feature a one-night elimination eight-man tournament, and will cost 19.95 on pay-per-view. But is it worth buying?

The tournament format is an interesting concept, and a lot of mixed martial arts fans are nostalgic of the old days when fighting up to three times a night was the norm for fighters like Royce Gracie, Ken Shamrock, Don Frye and Mark Coleman. We’ve seen plenty of tournaments in Bellator, but this one is a one-night elimination tournament, something about that just gets MMA fans excited.

The eight men who will not know their first-round opponents until the day of the weigh-ins are Roan Carneiro, Luigi Fioravanti, Trey Houston, Brock Larson, Cody McKenzie, Joe Ray, Jesse Taylor and Randall Wallace.

The commentators for the show will be professional wrestling commentary legend Jim Ross and recently retired/disgraced MMA fighter Chael Sonnen. The two will undoubtedly make for an interesting call, but is it worth paying your actual money for?

How should we feel about one-night tournaments anyway? Should we appreciate them for their violent and volatile nature, where the winner will have accomplished a true feat in the sport by winning three times in one night? Or should we consider them something of the past, that MMA has rid itself of on its quest to make the sport as safe as possible for the athletes?

Aside from the tournament, Battlegrounds MMA will have a few other fights on the card. The co-main event is a lightweight fight between Danny Navarro (11-4) and Jonny Carson (11-6). Oklahoma featherweight prospect Jamal Parks (3-0) takes on Ruben Warr, and Tyler Shinn (6-2) takes on Chris Gutierrez (4-1) in a bantamweight fight.

The main focus of the card will be on the tournament, which provided all the fights of each round go forward, will require seven fights in total. I can’t tell you how to spend your money, as that is ultimately up to you.

But if you find yourself buying mixed martial arts pay-per-view events, this is one you might want to watch. The talent pool in the tournament is an interesting mix of lightweights, featherweights, welterweights, and even a middleweight or two all competing at 170 pounds.

We don’t know what the matchups will be, and that is something that sets this card apart from the week-in week-out UFC and Bellator schedules. Of course, we will know come fight night the first four fights of the tournament, but it is anyone’s guess who is going to make it to the finals.

The real reason to watch this show is Jim Ross making his mixed martial arts commentating debut. He recently called a boxing event on Fox Sports 1, and I for one am dying to hear him call an MMA fight.

We’ve seen a few different sides of Chael Sonnen on the mic recently. We all know “The Bad Guy” gimmick that he would put on ahead of his fights, and we’ve seen him in serious circumstances as well in his recent retirement and dealings with the NSAC.

On commentary we’ll most likely see a more nuanced version of The American Gangster, who will surely be excited to be sitting next to Good Ole’ J.R. There are a lot of things that set this event apart from what we normally see, and at a price point of under 20 bucks, it’s worth taking a look at.

Cung Le was uncertain about his future in MMA. The UFC might have just made the decision for him.

In a statement released late Wednesday, UFC officials announced that the 42-year-old former Strikeforce champion tested positive for excessive human growth hormone (HGH) following his August 23 TKO defeat to Michael Bisping at UFC Fight Night 48, and as a result, he will be suspended nine months by the promotion.

The full text of the statement reads as follows:

UFC middleweight Cung Le tested positive for an excess level of Human Growth Hormone in his system following his fight at UFC Fight Night in Macao, China on August 23. Due to his positive test result, Le was suspended by the UFC and notified that he violated the UFC Fighter Conduct Policy and Promotional Agreement with Zuffa, LLC. The UFC has a strict, consistent policy against the use of any illegal and/or performance-enhancing drugs, stimulants or masking agents by our athletes. Le will serve a nine-month suspension and, at its conclusion, will need to pass a drug test before competing in the UFC again.

Le (9-3) had previously been the subject of widespread speculation—some of it mocking—over whether his training regimen was entirely above board. In the run-up to his fight with Bisping, Le posted a photo of himself looking more ripped than he had ever looked before. When questioned about the photo, Le said the overly muscular appearance was just a trick of the lighting, per MMAjunkie.

It seems the UFC might not have believed him, as they announced an enhanced drug-testing effort around the event shortly after the photo kerfuffle, according to Mike Drahota of LowKick. That enhanced effort was successful.

Regardless, Le was badly beaten by Bisping at UFC Fight Night 48, his face bloodied and one eye swollen shut when the contest was finally, mercifully halted. In the cage after the loss, Le was noncommittal about his fighting future, telling broadcaster Kenny Florian he wanted to “take a vacation” and “talk to my family” before making any decisions.

Given the nine-month suspension—not to mention the bad loss he suffered against Bisping—he may no longer have those luxuries.
