  • Warlley Alves coming into UFC Gdansk after a pair of losses outside the cage, too

    Warlley Alves had a year to be forgotten in 2016, but he refuses to see it that way.

    Once seen as one of the greatest prospects in the welterweight division after a perfect run as middleweight on The Ultimate Fighter Brazil, Alves suffered his first defeats in MMA by the hands of Bryan Barberena and Kamaru Usman last year, and those were only two of his biggest losses.

    Alves lost a close friend in between those fights, when he suffered a violent car crash in Rio de Janeiro, leaving behind a wife and young daughter. Right after Alves’ defeat to Usman, another friend passed away due to a heart attack at age 26 — also leaving behind a family of a wife and a child.

    “[Last year] was a really tough year for me, I had two losses in my career and two losses in my personal life,” Alves told MMA Fighting. “I can’t say how tough it was for their families and close friends. I was hoping that 2017 would be my year to bounce back, but then I had a biceps injury and had to postpone my return.”

    Alves’ life finally got back on track recently. After weeks of physical therapy, he was cleared to return to training and got a fight booked at UFC Gdansk.

    Alves "finally" got married on Sept. 30, and decided to postpone his honeymoon in order to train for Jim Wallhead at Saturday’s UFC Gdansk.

    A week before the fight, though, Wallhead was pulled from the card due to an injury, but the UFC managed to find a replacement on short notice, signing Polish welterweight Salim Touahri.

    “I'll dedicate this win for their families,” Alves said.

    With his personal life coming back to normal, Alves focuses on becoming once again that fighter that impressed fans around the world.

    “I've lost a lot fighting the way people expected instead of fighting the way I wanted,” Alves said. “I want to brawl. I train for three-round brawls. That’s what fans want to watch. When I became a MMA fan watching PRIDE and the UFC, I enjoyed fighters who went for brawls, and always said that’s who I wanted to be.

    “There are some grapplers that have a cool style, going for submissions, but the majority just wants to grab people against the cage and do nothing,” he continued. “I want to excite the crowd, I want to make them stand and scream like lunatics. I want to brawl. I want to give them what I had when I watched my favorite fighters compete."

  • Heather Hardy confronted at Bellator 185 weigh-ins by former opponent

    Heather Hardy all but faced off with two opponents Thursday at Bellator 185 weigh-ins.

    As Hardy stepped off the scale for the traditional staredown with Kristina Williams, her Bellator opponent Friday at Connecticut’s Mohegan Sun, another woman approached the stage and confronted Hardy. That woman was Shelly Vincent, who Hardy beat in boxing last year in a bout for the WBC International female featherweight title, Bellator officials told MMA Fighting.

    Hardy just smiled and laughed at Williams. Bellator security intervened and escorted Vincent away from the stage area.

    When reached by MMA Fighting, Hardy demurred about talking about the situation.

    “I’m completely focused on my opponent right now and keeping my undefeated record wherever I fight,” Hardy said. “Besides, that was just one of my obsessed fans.”

    Hardy, 35, made her MMA debut at Bellator 180 in June with a third-round TKO of Alice Yauger at Madison Square Garden. The Brooklyn native is 20-0 in boxing and has become a rising star in both combat sports.

    Vincent wrote in an Instagram post afterward that Hardy “can fool the public but those of us on the inside know the real deal.”

  • ONE flyweight champ Adriano Moraes meets undefeated Danny Kingad in November

    ONE Championship added a second title fight to its return to Manila.

    A flyweight championship bout between 125-pound kingpin Adriano Moraes and unbeaten contender Danny Kingad was officially announced by the promotion for Nov. 10 at the Mall of Asia Arena in Manila, Philippines.

    Moraes vs. Kingad joins a previously announced bout between lightweight champion Eduard Folayang and featherweight champion Martin Nguyen for the 155-pound belt.

    Moraes (16-2) avenged his only loss under the ONE banner in August, defeating Kairat Akhmetov to reclaim the flyweight gold. The Brazilian talent starts his second title run on a three-fight winning streak.

    Kingad (7-0) earned a shot at the flyweight championship after winning three in a row inside the ONE cage, including first-round stoppages over Eugene Toquero and Muhamad Haidar.

  • Alex Caceres returns at UFC Shanghai, meets promotional newcomer Guan Wang

    Alex Caceres will be returning to Asia for his next UFC bout.

    The featherweight fighter has been booked to fight Guan Wang at UFC Shanghai (UFC Fight Night 122), which is set to go down on Nov. 25 at the Mercedes-Benz Arena in Shanghai, China. The news was initially reported by and was later confirmed by MMA Fighting.

    Caceres last fought at UFC Fight Night 111 in June where he snapped a two fight skid, defeating Rolando Dy via second-round technical knockout. The 29-year-old fighter is 13-10 as a professional and 8-8 in his UFC run that dates back to 2011.

    Meanwhile, Wang was scheduled to make his UFC debut against Caceres back in UFC Fight Night 111, but was forced to but was forced to withdraw due to injury. Wang was replaced by Dy. The Chinese fighter is 19-1-1 in his MMA career and currently rides a seven-fight win streak.

    UFC Shanghai will be headlined by a middleweight between former UFC champ Anderson Silva and Kelvin Gastelum. The event is set to stream on UFC Fight Pass.
