Brandao says Jose Aldo will finish McGregor

Ultimate Fighting Championship or UFC Featherweight fighter Diego Brandao has predicted a stunning defeat for Conor McGregor at the hands of reigning UFC Featherweight champion Jose Aldo which will all but shatter his dreams of becoming world champion. Moreover, he has also offered the Irishman the chance of a rematch against him if and when the Brazilian ends his world title hopes.

The Brazilian will return to the cage this week, almost a year since his own spectacular defeat at the hands of Irishman at UFC Dublin but despite that humbling, he is up for another fight and wants to even up the scores against the Dubliner.

According to Brandao, he cannot wait for the match between Conor McGregor and Jose Aldo, adding that his compatriot will take the match and he hopes that McGregor will give him a rematch after he gets beaten. He added that McGregor has no idea how to approach a five round duel, mentioning that he was not trained when the two of them met.

But instead of making excuses, Brandao said that the world will now find out that the Irishman is not all that he says he is. He mentioned that he did not get inside his head and he just wasn’t there mentally for the fight. However, McGregor still won the fight and the Brazilian hailed his achievements and he says he has deserved his shot at the title, but everyone will find out that he is something entirely different.

Josh Koscheck suffers yet another defeat

Jake Ellenberger racked up a much needed win at UFC 184 to maintain his relevance as a top Welterweight contender by submitting former divisional top dog Josh Koscheck in the second round at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.

Both the fighters entered the fight on the back of a losing streak of three fights and eager to snap that unwanted streak. Koscheck, meanwhile, entered the cage for the fight for the first time in 15 months after taking a sabbatical from the sport in order to reassess his career and his goals.

And it was Koscheck who came out the more aggressive of the two landing some hard punches on the Juggernaut but that was not enough to keep Ellenberger down and pretty soon, he managed to take control of things.

Josh Koscheck was having trouble seeing with his left eye during the second round and he kept wiping it and Ellenberger sensed an opportunity there to submit him with a north-south choke, which he did brilliantly.

Making his debut for the promotion in the first ever season of the popular reality show The Ultimate Fighter, Kos went on to have 22 fights for the promotion between 2005 and 2014.

Koscheck began to wrestle when he was just five years old, but quit for a time after turning twelve in order to concentrate on his studies. But he resumed training in his teens and became a successful wrestler at college level. He earned four straight NCAA Division I All American titles, being placed 4th, 2nd, 1st and 3rd respectively and was also awarded the PSAC Wrestler of the Year on three occasions.

Koscheck also spent a part of 2010 coaching and grooming the up and coming fighters in The Ultimate Fighter before landing a shot at the UFC Welterweight Championship against George St. Pierre at UFC 124.

But Josh Koscheck failed to do any better this time around as well and suffered another defeat in what would turn out to be his last shot at the UFC Welterweight Championship and any UFC gold in his career.

Commission of the Boxing Nevada called by Mayweather

The fight that will be questioned is concerning the gym fight where it is shown that neither fighters got a break of rest and another display which shows marijuana used in the mansion of Las Vegas.

The head of the Athletic Commission Nevada State, Francisco Aguilar is concerned about the safety of the fighters and more so their health. Television is hailed as a dramatic turn of event but clear information is better. Mayweather is showcased as promoting and cheering for his fight and accordingly whoever goes in first will be the quitter going by the old traditions of the game.

Aguilar seemed concerned as the health of the fighter is of utmost significance. Rest break is compulsory and if they do not get it, it can prove to be hurtful. If adequate rest is not given it may also happen that would lose their attention in the ring. He wants a fair play which is good for the sport as well. Proper management is required. Mayweather has to play twin roles of a fighter as well as of a promoter properly. He recently got the license for promotion of fights. There are many fighters who in the gym train at Las Vegas. Since the incident of marijuana happened at his home, questions will also be put up on that.

Though Mayweather is not seen smoking but it was shown that he indicated somebody to get rolling papers for smoke and give them to the women. The controversy is surrounding for few days now and the final action and consequence would be felt later. Comments regarding Ray Rice are also disturbing.
