HIGHLIGHTING HEADLINES IN MMA (AUGUST 20, 2017)

12-fight UFC veteran Sam Sicilia latest to Signal multi-fight Bellator contract

Good on him! Dropping a unanimous choice to promotional novice Gavin Tucker in UFC Fight Night 105 back in October, Sicilia fell to a three-fight losing skid from the UFC and received his pink slip from the promotion. I like that he’s found a new house using Bellator, and hopefully an equally good or better payday. Win or lose, the Washington native always shows up to battle and looks for the end. Congratulations to Sammy Dubs for his new arrangement, and best of luck on his new chapter.
Frank Mir agrees to cope with Bellator MMA
Nice! The UFC did the right thing and published Mir out of his contract, which allowed Bellator to sweep up him. My guess is that they promised him a matchup against Fedor Emalianenko, which made him choose Bellator over competing promotions. I like this move by Mir and look forward to seeing him inside the Bellator cage. The Fedor matchup will certainly be an intriguing one.

Dillashaw: Mighty Mouse was’consolation prize’
TJ Dillashaw is finally set to confront UFC bantamweight champion Cody Garbrandt at UFC 217 in nyc on November 4th, and the main reason this title fight is presently taking place is because UFC flyweight champion Demetrious”Mighty Mouse” Johnson refused to defend his title against Dillashaw when Garbrandt was forced out of the UFC 209 competition because of injury. The Duane Ludwig-trained fighter knows that Johnson wasn’t confident in himself to accept the challenge. Speaking to MMA Junkie Radio, Dillashaw said that the Gabrandt struggle is exactly what he wanted all along and that the Johnson matchup was just a backup program. He understands that is not a fantastic fight for him wouldn’t take it,” Dillashaw explained. “He’s real worried about this document that he needs to break. Go on and let him do that, I guess.”
White: Ferguson, Lee to fight for interim lightweight title Alright, now we are talking! Early popular consensus is that Ferguson is going to handily defeat Lee, but personally, I’m not so convinced. Lee has been quite impressive as of late, and I enjoy seeing his expansion within the Octagon. That is a matchup I’m excited about visiting, and win or lose, I hope Lee doesn’t suffer any mishaps he’ll make a fast turnaround for December’s UFC 218 in his native Detroit, which is just two weeks after the Ferguson bout.
