UFC 217 Media Day: Fighters take the stage for face-offs

UFC 217 Media Day

UFC 217 Media Day is in full swing, here is the face-off video

UFC 217 is just around the corner, and today the fighters were front and center for the UFC 217 Media Day face-offs. One by one they stood, faced their opponent and then the front of the crowd. There were no major dust-ups and for the most part, everyone kept their cool. There are so many great fights on this card, it’s going to be awesome.

None of the fighters in the three title fights were part of the face-off. It’s hard to believe there are three fights above Stephen Thompson vs. Jorge Masvidal on the card.

The UFC 217 Card is stacked and can be viewed here.

UFC Fight Night London: Dan Hardy Q&A with Tate, Ngannou, Gall and Gadelha

Miesha Tate, Francis Ngannou, Mickey Gall, and Claudia Gadelha all sat up on the dais with host Dan Hardy and fielded questions from the crowd.

Highlights from the Q&A:

“If I was going to come back, that (Ronda Rousey) would be the fight that would appeal to me the most.”

-Miesha Tate

“I need them (Cain, JDS, Overeem) to prove myself. To show that I am ready for that title.”

Francis Ngannou

“The best fights in the UFC today, are from the girls.”
-Claudia Gadelha

“The idea of my book (Part Reptile) being delivered to people’s houses this week is kind of freaking me out a little bit.”
-Dan Hardy

“I think today you can’t just go in there and throw down. You have to be the complete package. The complete package is to speak English and be able to talk to the fans.”
Claudia Gadelha

“Closed mouths don’t get fed.  If you want something, you have to ask for it. I agree with Claudia. You have to not just be an athlete and fighter, but also an entertainer.”

-Mickey Gall

“There are no plans to come out of retirement.”
-Miesha Tate

“It would be fun. I’d love to (Hop in the WWE ring).”

-Miesha Tate

“I’d like to have three or four division belts.”
-Mickey Gall

“I want it to be fun. I want it to be wild and I want it to be bloody. That’s all I’m coming back for.”

-Dan Hardy

Sage Northcutt hoping to fight ‘sometime in the next 3 or 4 months, at 155 pounds.’

Sage Northcutt hoping to fight 'sometime in the next 3 or 4 months, at 155 pounds.'

I love Sage Northcutt. The kid is always smiling, respectful, and willing to learn. He was a guest on the MMA Hour with Ariel Helwani and his disposition took center stage. He responds to questions by saying ‘Yes sir’ or calling Tyron Woodley ‘Mr Woodley’. His attitude towards life and his positivity are infectious. You … Read moreSage Northcutt hoping to fight ‘sometime in the next 3 or 4 months, at 155 pounds.’
