Fighters of the Week

 

  1. Demetrious Johnson: Is officially the greatest champion in UFC history, and he punctuated it with an absolute sonning of Ray Borg before pulling the Mighty Mouse Special, a fifth-round submission.

 

 

  2. Tony Ferguson: Looked utterly fantastic in a dominant performance over Kevin Lee, finally claiming UFC gold, and called out Conor McGregor to unify the lightweight championships.

 

 

  3. Darrion Caldwell: Despite roughly 281 fence-grabs and bizarre gameplanning from Eduardo Dantas, Caldwell’s coronation is finally complete, and is the new Bellator Bantamweight champion, breaking the belt free from the Dantas/Galvao/Warren triangle.

 

 

  4. Chris Eubank Jr.: Absolutely demolished Avni Yildirim to advance in the World Boxing Super Series and retain his IBO strap.

 

 

  5. Kevin Ross: The inaugural Bellator Kickboxing Featherweight champ after a split-decision over Domenico Lomurno in the Bellator Kickboxing 7 main event. Wish we could have watched it live…

 

 

6. Raymond Daniels: The sport-karate legend earned a doctor stoppage win over Karim Ghajji and in doing so, is the new Bellator Kickboxing Welterweight champion.

 

7. Emmanuel Sanchez: Put on a great performance in an upset of former Bellator champion Daniel Straus at Bellator 184.

 

8. Sitthichai Sitsongpeenong: Hey now! The WLF tournament has finally ended and Sitthichai has the pleasure of facing Yi Long, and I certainly hope he puts his coddled nose through his skull so the judges can’t screw him.

 

9. Anthony Crolla: In a battle of hard-nosed UK veterans, Crolla bested Ricky Burns and positioned himself for one more title shot.

 

10. Hiroyuki Takaya: Against Hatsu Hioki in a JMMA dream match, he KO’d Hatsu Hioki in the main event in Pancrase on Sunday.

11. Diogo Calado: And STILL the 75kg Enfusion World Champion after knocking out Berat Aliu in the championship rounds at Enfusion Live 54.

12. Thomas Keenan: Via a split-decision, Keenan took a win over Brandon Bergeron in the main event of Fight To Win Pro 50.

13. John Moraga: In a betting upset, Moraga absolutely flattened Magomed Bibulatov, handing him his first career loss and left him looking at the lights.

14/15. Bobby Green/Lando Vannata: Put on a barnburner at UFC 216, earning a hard-fought draw, a probable rematch, and $50k each in their wallets.
