Posts Tagged ‘Limit’

Looks like UFC heavyweight Mark Hunt really let himself go in between fights, something he could regret Friday in Japan. 

“The Super Samoan” tipped the scales at a hefty 284 pounds at the end of the day Thursday, so therefore, he would’ve been forced to shed 18 pounds by Friday’s 3 a.m. ET weigh-ins, according to Yahoo Sports

The UFC heavyweight limit is 265 pounds, though 266 pounds is acceptable for non-title matchups

Perhaps even more shocking than his weight is the notion that Hunt isn’t worried about his upcoming trip to the scale, as MMA Fighting has since reported. 

“Earlier in the afternoon Hunt said, ‘I’m good. I’m only a few kilos off now.’ Less than two hours later he then said, ‘I am on weight right now, I think,'” the article notes. 

Fight Metric archives indicate that no heavyweight fighter has ever missed the weight in the UFC. 

Hunt weighed in at a stout 262 pounds for UFC Fight Night 33 in December 2013, where he battled Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva in a massively entertaining 25-minute brawl that ended in a majority draw. 

The 40-year-old striker is a respectable 4-1(1) in his past six contests, with his sole defeat coming at the hands of former UFC heavyweight champion Junior dos Santos at UFC 160 in May 2013. 

The fight marked just the second time in Hunt’s career that he was finished with strikes. 

His upcoming opponent, Roy Nelson, is known as much for his heavy hands and solid chin as he is for his flabby physique. 

Despite being a bigger fan of fast food than the weight room, Nelson has never had an issue making 265 pounds the day before a fight. 

His most recent contest was a brutal knockout over PRIDE legend Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira at UFC Fight Night 39 in April 2014.

Bleacher Report will cover the UFC Fight Night 52 weigh-ins, which take place at the Saitama Super Arena.

The WWE world was lit afire this week when CM Punk walked out of the company due to frustrations and the wear and tear the pro wrestling schedule has had on his body and mind. It is a story overshadowing everything else in the wrestling world at this point.

In talking with Ariel Helwani last week, CM Punk said there is some interest in competing in MMA once he is done wrestling. With his exit from the company happening this week, that possibility seems closer to reality, assuming his walk out of the company isn’t a work (which it appears it isn’t).

With Punk’s potential to join the MMA scene, one big name has jumped aboard the CM Punk train. That man is Rener Gracie. 

Rener, one of the legendary Brazilian jiu-jitsu-based Gracies, spoke out on how he thinks Punk could do in moving from the squared circle to the cage.

“With the little time he’s had with me spread out over so many years, he’s made remarkable progress. There’s no telling how successful he would be if he devoted himself full time to the training…He can go get some fights, knock some fools out and choke some dudes…If he dedicates himself full time, there is no limit, he has the intangibles.”

That is a big endorsement from Gracie, who also called Punk a “sponge” when it comes to picking things up in the gym.

Once again, all reports of Punk walking out of WWE have to be taken with a word of caution. In the world of pro wrestling, you never know when something is real or part of a storyline.

Should Punk make it into the world of MMA, it would be interesting to see how he does.

Punk has trained in Brazilian jiu-jitsu and muay thai for a while now, though he hasn’t been able to train full-time due to his hellish wrestling schedule. As seen in Punk’s wrestling arsenal, he uses a number of techniques seen in MMA such as flying knees, kicks and submission holds on the ground.

Time will tell what to make of this story. However, with Punk’s star power and the legitimate feeling about this walkout on WWE, Punk could easily be an outside attraction in MMA as Brock Lesnar and Herschel Walker were when they first took to the cage.

Stone. Cold. Impressive.

Every prospect in mixed martial arts becomes that way by earning accolades of this nature, but every now and again, one fighter will show a level of potential that deserves more than basic descriptive adjectives.

In regard to surging lightweight Khabib Nurmagomedov, cliched terms barely do justice to the performances he’s displayed inside the cage. At 23 years old, the Dagestani-born fighter brought a 16-fight winning streak and an undefeated record into the UFC fold. Now, 21 months and four fights later, “The Eagle’s” record remains flawless as he’s defeated a collection of talented veterans on his climb up the lightweight divisional ladder.

The AKA-trained fighter submitted Kamal Shalarous in the third round of their tilt at UFC on FX 1 in January of 2012, then earned the unanimous decision nod over one of the longest-tenured lightweights on the UFC roster in Gleison Tibau six months later at UFC 148. 

He followed up that performance by scoring a blistering knockout at the expense of Thiago Tavares at UFC on FX 7 in January. Where Nurmagomedov had displayed a strong game in his first two outings, his first-round drubbing of Tavares proved he has legitimate one-shot put-away power.

In his most recent showing against Abel Trujillo at UFC 160 in May, Nurmagomedov‘s heralded wrestling skills reached a new level as he recorded a UFC record 21 takedowns en route to his lopsided steamrolling of the Team Blackzilians fighter. 

In the lead-up to the fight, especially at the weigh-ins, things became heated between the two fighters. While Nurmagomedov wasn’t able to put Trujillo away, he used the entire three rounds of the fight to prove his dominance.

“The guy disrespected me backstage,” Nurmagomedov said. “I was composed and controlled my emotions. We were planning to grapple and our goal was to finish the fight, but unfortunately it did not go the way we planned.”

On the strength of incredible performances in back-to-back outings, Nurmagomedov began to set his sights on the biggest names in the 155-pound division. His first target was former title challenger Nate Diaz, and when no traction was gained in that direction, the talented made a play to welcome MMA legend B.J. Penn back to the cage.

While neither bout came to fruition, reaching for those lofty goals at such an early stage of his career is an example of the the type of motivation Nurmagomedov possesses. He believes he’s one of the best lightweights on the planet and has no issue proving his status.

“I still say that,” he added. “I train everyday. I think I’m ready for any fighter in the division.”

The next challenge the 24-year-old will face will come this Saturday night when he squares off with Pat Healy at UFC 165. The gritty veteran is in the midst of a career resurgence as he’s collect six consecutive victories. Healy earned his seventh-straight win when he defeated Jim Miller in his return to the Octagon at UFC 159, but a failed post-fight drug test turned the bout into a “no contest.”

Despite having the victory overturned, Healy is still a fixture in the next tier of the lightweight division—a position Nurmagomedov is eager to obtain. While he has a solid track record behind him, Nurmagomedov believes the next chapter of his career is set to begin in Toronto.

“I think it is a beginning,” Nurmagomedov said. “I am going to fight top 10 and there will be a lot more for the fans to see. I have a few more tricks up my sleeve. 

“[Healy] is a big guy who has a good winning streak. I like this matchup, and a win over him will move me up the ranks. I have a few surprises for him in this fight. Anything can happen in a fight, but I have some good stuff for Pat Healy.”

While Nurmagomedov‘s rise through the UFC ranks has been noteworthy, he’s one of many talented fighters that have emerged from Dagestan. The Russian Republic has launched a new wave in mixed martial arts as Dagestani fighters have been spilling onto the sport’s biggest stages and finding success in large supply.

The San Jose transplant feels the talent has always been there, but, until now, fighters from Dagestan lacked the proper representation to get them to the big shows.

“We always had good fighters but we were lacking management,” Nurmagomedov said. “I think with the help of my mangers, Sam Kardan and Mike Constantino, we are going to see a lot more fighters coming out of the region.”

With MVC management at the helm of Nurmagomedov‘s career, Mike Constantino has a front-row seat to the prospect’s climb. As one of the fight game’s most highly regarded reps and the ever-rare trainer/manager, Constantino has an excellent grasp on what it takes for a fighter to succeed in the grind of MMA.

In Nurmagomedov, Constantino sees all the necessary tools for the Russian fighter to make it to the top of the mountain and believes he possesses the critical intangibles that make a UFC title possible in his future.

“He is a gamer,” Constantino said. “He brings his level up when he fights, and that is what makes champions. He has all the skill sets as well as heart and will. Khabib will be a champion.”

Whether Nurmagomedov lives up to the expectations and will continue to grow throughout his career remains to be seen, but what is set in stone is the confidence and self-belief he carries with him into the cage.

Despite his age and having been on the UFC roster for less than two years, Nurmagomedov has made substantial progress. While a victory over Pat Healy on Saturday night won’t earn him an immediate shot at UFC gold, a win in Toronto will bring him one step closer to achieving the ultimate goal.

Nurmagomedov is set on becoming the UFC lightweight champion and will do whatever it takes to turn that dream into reality.

Right now, Pat Healy is obstructing his path to the top, and Nurmagomedov is game for the challenge.

He’s looking to obtain victory at UFC 165 in any form or fashion—and if the fight turns into a gritty affair that becomes an all-out war—it won’t bother him one bit.

In his mind, he’s born to do this.

And one day soon, he just might prove that he can do it better than anyone else.
