TICKETS FOR UFC FIGHT NIGHT®: COWBOY vs. MEANS

AT CONSOL ENERGY CENTER

ON SALE FRIDAY, JANUARY 22

 

Las Vegas – The UFC® returns to Pittsburgh for the first time in five years as one of the sport’s most successful and popular fighters makes his debut in a new weight division. Fresh off competing for the lightweight title, Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone will fight at welterweight for the first time in his UFC career when he takes on Tim Means, Feb. 21 at CONSOL Energy Center. The event will air on FS1.

 

Cowboy (28-6, 1 NC; fighting out of Albuquerque, New Mexico) will make his debut at 170 lbs. after competing at 155 lbs. and most recently challenging lightweight champion Rafael dos Anjos for the title (Dec. 19, 2015). Cowboy has won eight of his last nine bouts, including eight consecutive victories over Evan Dunham, Adriano Martins, Edson Barboza, Jim Miller, Eddie Alvarez, Myles Jury, Benson Henderson and John Makdessi, dating back to Nov. 2013. He has won 15 fights by submission and five by KO during his career.

 

Will Cowboy be able to continue his success competing against bigger fighters? That will be the question that is answered when he goes up against the veteran Means. Also a native of Albuquerque, albeit a different gym, Means (25-7-1) has won four of his last five bouts, including an impressive second-round TKO of John Howard that earned him a Performance of the Night bonus. At 6’2”, Means will be taller and have a longer reach than most of Cowboy’s past opponents, and his tremendous cardio and precise technique will make for an intriguing matchup against Cowboy’s outstanding Muay Thai and submission skills.

 

Two hard-hitting middleweights will set the table for the main event when #12 Derek Brunson (14-3; fighting out of Wilmington, North Carolina) squares off against #14 Roan Carneiro (20-9; fighting out of Atlanta, Georgia). Brunson is riding a three-fight winning streak and has won five of his last six bouts, with his last three victories coming over highly touted opponents Sam Alvey, Ed Herman and Lorenz Larkin. An impressive victory could propel Brunson into the top 10.

 

At 37, Carneiro is also focused on making a run for a top-10 ranking, coming off an impressive first-round submission win over Mark Munoz. Born in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil, Carneiro has nine career first-round finishes, and a resume that includes three wins by knockout and nine by submission. A second consecutive victory could earn Carneiro a shot against a top-10 opponent.

 

Additional bouts include:

UFC FIGHT NIGHT®: COWBOY vs. MEANS will air live on FS1 at 9 p.m. ET/6 p.m. PT on Sunday, Feb. 21, with the prelims kicking off the evening on FS1 at 7 p.m. ET/4 p.m. PT and on UFC FIGHT PASS® at 5:15 p.m. ET/2:15 p.m. PT.

Jan 20, 2016

The Panthers of Carolina beat the Seahwawks and andance to the Championship game

 

with a all black and blue stadium the dominium of the Panters was strong in such a way that before five minutes of starting the game they were alredy ahead of the game with a score of 14 against 0 thanks to a short carry of Jonathan Stewart and a interception of L.Kuechly, immediately after that in their second play of the second quarter the score was 21 against 0 with a field goal, only 12 minutes and 37 seconds to end second quarter their kicker makes a field goal of 48 yards to raise the scoreboard to 24 points, not allowing the Sea Hawks to achieve any points yet.With a play inspired by QB.Newton who throws a pass of 14 yards to his partner Greg Olsen to than achieve a tird whole pass and giving another extra points to their team finding them selfs at 31 with the field goal and the Sea Hawks still not being able to make any points,having the opportunity to earn 3 points just before ending second half Hawks fail a field goal making scoreboard remail the same.

Second time starts and the visitors come out srong scoring their first annotation of the day at minute and a half of the game starting,changing the scoreboard to 31 against 7,seems like the Hawks finally wake up at minute 8 of second half when QB Russel Wilson of the Hawks sends a perfect pass to complete the annotation and change the scoreboard to 31 against 14.

Last quarter of the game starts and the scoreboard remains still,seems like the visitors have finally found the key to defeat the Panters who have not been able to achieve any more points since the second quarter, they wouldn’t let anything pass their way untill minute 6 where the Sea Hawks score again with a 3 yard pass, being really close in the scoringboard only 7 points away from the Panters,we are in the last 2 minutes of the game and the visitors scores 3 more points wich were not enough to beat the Panters who won the game with a score of 31 against 24 passing to the final of conference with the Arizona Cardinals who they will play against next Sunday here in Charlotte.

Anderson Silva Makes Return In London on UFC Figth Pass

The stage is set for the biggest event in UFC FIGHT PASS history, as UFC President Dana White announced that the Feb. 27 event at London’s O2 Arena will now be headlined by a bout between middleweight legend Anderson Silva and British superstar Michael Bisping.

UFC VIP Experience Packages are still available for the event, which will air in its entirety exclusively on UFC FIGHT PASS, the UFC’s digital streaming service.

The longest reigning middleweight champion in UFC history, Brazil’s Silva ruled the 185-pound class from 2006 to 2013. After returning from a broken leg suffered in his rematch against Chris Weidman, Silva was back in form in his 2015 bout against Nick Diaz.

Now the 40-year-old “Spider” will begin another title run against Manchester’s Bisping, a perennial contender who put British MMA on the map after winning season three of The Ultimate Fighter. Winner of two straight over CB Dollaway and Thales Leites, Bisping could put himself in the title picture with a win over the Brazilian icon this February.

UFC® RETURNS TO PRUDENTIAL CENTER WITH LIGHT HEAVYWEIGHT SHOWDOWN AS ANTHONY “RUMBLE” JOHNSON TAKES ON RYAN BADER

Plus:

(#6) JOSH BARNETT vs. (#8) BEN ROTHWELL

(#10) TAREC SAFFIEDINE vs. JAKE ELLENBERGER

 

TICKETS FOR UFC FIGHT NIGHT®: JOHNSON vs. BADER 

AT PRUDENTIAL CENTER IN NEWARK, N.J.

ON SALE FRIDAY, DEC. 18

 

Las Vegas – With title implications on the line, much is at stake when top light heavyweights Anthony “Rumble” Johnson and Ryan Bader collide in the five-round main event of UFC FIGHT NIGHT® on Saturday, Jan. 30 at Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey. This event, which marks UFC’s seventh trip to “Gateway City”, will broadcast live on FOX.

With a potent mix of speed and power, (No.2) Rumble (20-5, fighting out of Boca Raton, Fla.) poses a serious threat for anyone in the 205-pound division. Boasting a record with 14 knockouts and victories over top contenders in Jimi Manuwa, Alexander Gustafsson, Antonio Rogerio Nogueira and Phil Davis, the former title contender is looking for another chance to challenge for championship gold.

 

Standing in his way, is fourth-ranked Bader (21-4, fighting out of Tempe, Ariz.), who is out to prove he is deserving of a title shot after reeling off five straight wins.  With a resume that includes victories over former UFC light heavyweight champion Rashad Evans, Davis, Ovince Saint Preux, Rampage Jackson and Nogueira, the 2x Division I All-American wrestler is just one win away from contending for the UFC light heavyweight strap.

 

Plus, former UFC heavyweight champion and sixth-ranked Josh Barnett (34-7, fighting out of Fullerton, Calif.) goes head-to-head with the always-formidable (No.8) Ben Rothwell (35-9, fighting out of Kenosha, Wisc.) in the co-main event. With 37 knockout and 23 submission victories shared, this bout is unlikely to go the distance.

 

Additional bouts:

  • Former STRIKEFORCE welterweight champion and 10th-ranked Tarec Saffiedine (15-4, fighting out of Temecula, Calif.) returns to the Octagon to face veteran Jake Ellenberger (30-10, fighting out of Lake Forest, Calif.), a staple in the 170-pound division.
  • New Jersey’s own George Sullivan (17-4, 1NC, fighting out of Belmar, N.J.) and Alexander Yakovlev (22-6-1, fighting out of Fairfield, N.J.) battle it out in a welterweight bout.
  • In an exciting bantamweight matchup, Alex “Bruce Leeroy” Caceres (10-8, 1NC, fighting out of Miami, Fla.) takes on The Ultimate Fighter Latin America Season 1 prospect Masio Fullen (10-5, fighting out of San Diego, Calif.).
  • Looking for his fourth straight UFC win, lightweight Olivier Aubin-Mercier (8-1, fighting out of Montreal, Quebec, Canada) meets The Ultimate Fighter Brazil Season 4 standout Joaquim Silva (8-1, fighting out of Goiania, Goias, Brazil).
  • Submission specialist Tony Martin (9-3, fighting out of Minneapolis, Minn.) faces UFC newcomer Felipe Olivieri (14-4, fighting out of Rio de Janeiro) in a lightweight bout.

 

Tickets for UFC FIGHT NIGHT®: JOHNSON vs. BADER go on sale Friday, December 18 at 10 a.m. ET and are priced at $185, $125, $90, $75, $50 and $40 (prices do not include applicable service charges and handling fees).
