Miguel Baeza out this weekend.


The unbeaten welterweight prospect was scheduled to take on Jeremiah Wells at Saturday’s UFC on ESPN+ 36 in Vegas, but the bout has been removed from the card. The fight was cancelled for undisclosed reasons.


This has become the norm with UFC Vegas events ... fights being scratched during fight week. Fight Island can't get here soon enough.

Former UFC heavyweight champion Frank Mir has signed a deal to compete under the Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship (BKFC) banner.

Mir, 41, last competed as a member of Bellator last October with a unanimous decision win over Roy Nelson. The victory helped snap a four-fighting losing streak for Mir dating back to his final two bouts in UFC.

Mir became an official free agent this past April when his deal with Bellator expired.

X-Ray of Tyron Woodley’s broken rib.

He said it popped earlier in the fight and then tried to use the gulliotine to stand up and it popped. “It was the most pain ever,” he said.

He is back at the hotel resting.

Sixteen years after they argued and almost came to blows on the legendary first season of “The Ultimate Fighter,” Stephan Bonnar and Diego Sanchez will be on the same team at UFC 253.


Bonnar, who last fought in 2014, will corner Sanchez for his welterweight fight against Jake Matthews on Saturday. The fight tops the pay-per-view event’s preliminary card portion.


“The world and the universe goes full circle,” Sanchez said. “We came full circle. This is my boy and he’s going to be supporting me (and) helping me. I’ve got another cornerman.”

Since the taping of The Ultimate Fighter, Season 1 in 2004, Sanchez and Bonnar have crossed paths a number of times. They’ve stayed in touch and hung out, but didn’t have many opportunities to train together.

With Sanchez getting work in at the UFC Performance Institute in Las Vegas, he began getting training in at Bonnar’s gym, Silver Wolf Training. When he made a trip down to Sanchez’s home of Albuquerque, N.M., Bonnar decided to take Sanchez up on an offer that was extended 16 years prior.

“When I was down in Albuquerque, we hung out in the mountains together,” Bonnar said. “Sixteen years ago on The Ultimate Fighter, he said, ‘Dude you’ve got to come down to the mountains in Albuquerque and we can see some UFOs together under the stars.’ Here we are. Finally, I took him up on it. It took me long enough.”

According to Bonnar, UFOs were spotted during their trip to the mountains, though he admits there may have been other forces at play in producing his visions.

“Beyond a shadow of a doubt (I saw UFOs),” Bonnar said. “Was I under the influence of psychedelics? Yes, but I definitely saw bright lights moving around.”

Overall, Bonnar said the experience was cleansing and helped refresh his mind, body, and soul. He now feels ready to corner Sanchez in the battle to keep his name in the win column with another victory Saturday.

“I definitely reconnected with Mother Nature,” Bonnar said. “Boom. I’m a new man. I’m recharged.”

UFC is targetting Merab Dvalishvili vs. Cody Stamann on December 5 on an ESPN+ Fight Night.

Dvalishvili (12-4) is coming off a dominant decision win over John Dodson at UFC 252 last month.

Stamman (19-3-1) will look to rebound from a loss to Jimmie Rivera.

McGregor's manager, Audie Attar ...

Pacquiao isn't a done deal yet. The boxing match would take place in late December or early January. The Middle East is one of a few locations being discussed to host the fight.


Pacquiao -500 is Free money. Conor legit would have less than zero chance. Let all his dumb ass fans pile on him and knock Manny down to around -300ish.

Pacquiao's camp on Saturday confirmed that the Filipino boxing icon and former UFC champ are finalizing details for a fight next year.

Pacquiao's special assistant Jayke Joson then released a statement confirming the news:

"We won't deny it. In fact, our lawyers are finalizing all the confidential details, but both fighters are getting ready for this one epic last boxing fight," Joson said.

Joson also revealed that a portion of the Manny's earnings from this fight will be used to fund efforts against the novel coronavirus.
