UFC 226: The Thrill and the Agony sneak peak video

The Thrill and the Agony

The Thrill and the Agony is one of my favorite video series that the UFC does

UFC 226 was an amazing night for Daniel Cormier and his team, AKA. Relive the amazing moments in UFC 226 The Thrill and the Agony. In this sneak peek, you can see a bit of the post-fight celebration of DC and his teammates, friends, and family. You also see the moment the fight ended from both corner’s perspectives.

The full video will feature multiple fights but this preview focuses on DC. Everything seems to be going DC’s way these days. He’s the Champ-Champ and even broke the dreaded Conan curse. As we reported earlier, DC broke the Conan curse by going on the show and then winning his fight. It’s a curse that fighters like Ronda Rousey, Conor McGregor, and Nate Diaz all suffered from.

The full-length videos are available on Fight Pass and they are incredible. You can check out a sneak peek below.

Francis NGannou opens up on lackluster UFC 226 performance

Francis NGannou

NGannou was involved in as bad a fight as I can remember  with Derrick Lewis People sat in absolute shock watching Francis NGannou take on Derick Lewis. Everyone was expecting rock-em-sock-em robots with extreme violence and it wasn’t what we got. Instead, two of the most dynamic and heavy-handed punchers spent 15 minutes not engaging with … Read moreFrancis NGannou opens up on lackluster UFC 226 performance

Max Holloway takes to social media to make a statement on UFC 226

Max Holloway

Max Holloway had to pull out of his third consecutive fight, which is heartbreaking Max Holloway is not only one of the most talented fighters on the UFC roster, he’s one of the most genuine and respected as well. People show him respect because he shows it to others. He’s as likable a fighter as … Read moreMax Holloway takes to social media to make a statement on UFC 226

Derrick Lewis and Francis NGannou get heated during weigh-ins faceoff

Derrick Lewis

I’m really starting to look forward to this fight!

Derrick Lewis and Francis NGannou are monsters. Keeping them apart isn’t a lot of fun. UFC 226 is tomorrow night and today the fighters stepped on the scale and then faced off for media and fans as part of the ceremonial weigh-ins. Most of them went off pretty much as expected, but a few fighters seem to have some hostility towards each other. None more than Derrick Lewis and Francis NGannou. As they stood on the scale, Francis said something to Lewis who then replied. Next thing you know and Derrick Lewis shoved NGannou forcing UFC security to jump in.

These are two gigantic heavyweights and if there was ever a sure thing that someone is getting knocked out, it’s this fight.  The UFC shared the confrontation via Twitter.

Even though this card lost it’s Featherweight title fight when Max Holloway pulled out, it’s still stacked and should pack some excellent knockouts. Hall/Costa, Rountree/Saki, and this fight should all be sure-fire knockdown drag out brawls.

UFC 226 is going to be bonkers, you can see the card here.

Daniel Cormier trips over a speaker and crashes and burns at presser

Daniel Cormier

Thankfully he was able to hobble off the stage and said he’s all good.

Man, things are out of control right now with things in MMA. Max was pulled from the UFC 226 card yesterday and then today, Daniel Cormier took a nasty spill walking from his seat at the press conference. There was genuine concern that he was injured and his fight with Stipe Miocic was in jeopardy. Thank goodness he’s given the all clear, and he’s good to go.

All around good dude, Damon Martin posted a clip of the fall on Twitter. It’s no laughing matter, he took a nasty spill.

Not too much later, DC also took to social media to say he’s good to go.

Yeah, now that he mentions it, what’s the deal with that shirt? Looks like it’s on hooks so he can magically fly away after the photo.

UFC 226 is Saturday night, here’s the latest card.

Max Holloway pulled from UFC 226 card due to concussion symptoms

Max Holloway

Max had been slurring and out of it of late. He was in the hospital twice today. I have the Injury Bug! He’s got a lot to answer for, pulling this kind of stuff on America’s birthday! It’s true, Max Holloway has been pulled out of UFC 226 and his Featherweight title fight will not … Read moreMax Holloway pulled from UFC 226 card due to concussion symptoms

UFC 226 Embedded Ep. 2: Finding ways to relax before the event

UFC Embedded

Fighters are wrapping up their training for UFC 226

This episode opens with a Stipe Miocic training session. It’s the last big workout prior to his fight with Daniel Cormier. His coaches all say he’s had an incredible camp, and he looks really ready to go. In order to unwind, we see Stipe walking around a property with a metal detector and his buddy with a small spade. They walk around and Stipe has his friend dig whenever he feels they might have found something. It doesn’t yield anything. Looks fun though.

Next up we head to Daniel Cormier’s home and he is packing up to leave for Las Vegas. He kisses his kids, and he’s out the door. The team heads to the airport pose for a group photo and just like that, their next stop is Las Vegas.

We find ourselves in Torrence, CA with Brian Ortega next. He’s at his childhood home with his parents and shows us a cool little fort structure his dad built him when he was a kid. You really get a sense of who Brian is and where he came from.

Francis NGannou is in Las Vegas trying on MMA gloves for his fight. He visits with Megan Olivi and a UFC cameraman, Mike Roach. He’s really likable and nice to everyone. He does a photo shoot with Roach and looks massive.

Max Holloway hangs out at the UFC offices and shows off his new shirt. It’s pretty cool. He then stops and chats with Brad Tavares on his way out.

 

From the UFC

On Episode 2 of UFC 226 Embedded, heavyweight champion Stipe Miocic finishes his training camp but continues his hunt for gold. His opponent and light heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier packs for fight week. Featherweight title challenger Brian Ortega gives a tour of his childhood home.

UFC 226 Embedded Ep. 1 -Living a life close to normal

UFC 226 Embedded

The fighters are getting ready to travel to Las Vegas for UFC 226

It’s that time again, the UFC has begun producing their Embedded series for UFC 226. In this episode we see the fighters living their lives as normally as possible heading into massive fights. Brian Ortega is surfing, DC is on the soccer field, Stipe is putting together a playpen and Max is dealing with the Las Vegas heat. You know, just a day in the life type stuff.

Stipe might just be low-key the funniest guy in the UFC. Little comments like “Milk was a bad choice”, from Anchorman was solid. Anyone who quotes Will Ferrall is alright by me. His wife asking him, “Why can’t you be normal?” after he kicks the box the playpen came in was also pretty good. His response, “Ok, I love you. Teamwork makes the dream work.”  He’s simply hilarious without being all upfront about it.

Brian Ortega seems like a really interesting guy as well, and can absolutely belt a verse of La Bamba with the best of them. I like Brian and I feel like he has a unique perspective and style about MMA and his life. It’s pretty refreshing.


FROM THE UFC

On Episode 1 of UFC 226 Embedded, featherweight champion Max Holloway adjusts to the heat of Las Vegas, while 205-pound champion Daniel Cormier adjusts to working out at his new size. Heavyweight champion Stipe Miocic risks life and limb to assemble his soon-to-be-born daughter’s playpen.

Featherweight title challenger Brian Ortega juggles training, surfing, music, and karma. Holloway puts in time at the UFC Performance Institute, and Cormier spends time on the soccer field.
